July 29.—In Saturday’s Herald we mentioned that owing to the extreme heat, se veral dangerous cases of Diarrhea had occur red, and unless great caution was used, more might be expected. It is with extreme regrei that our fears have been confirmed, by the deaths of a considerable number of the inhabi tants of this city, accompanied by symptoms re sembling the Cholera of 1S32. As no official j report has been published, it is completely out of our power to give our readers correct in for-1 mation of the number of cases or deaths. On Saturday or Sunday they seemed to have in creased to rather an alarming extent; but we have the sincerest pleasure in being enabled to state, that a very sensible diminution took place yesterday, although it is utterly impossible to i state to what extent. As far as we have been : able to trace the cause of the disease in those, cases which have terminated fatally, we have beeu informed that imprudence of some kind or other, such as taking what are absurdly called preventives, drinking iced water, eating unripe fruits, &c. is the source. New York City, August 2.— The appearance of the Asiatic Cholera in Lower Canada, its ex istence in some of our Western cities and the recollection that two years since, it passed from the former part of our continent to this city, has caused considt ruble anxiety to be felt in regard to the state of public health here. After sedu lous inquiry we are happy to state that at pre sent there is no cause whatever for alarm. No case of malignant Cholera has been reported to the city authorities, nor have they reason to believe that any has occurred. At a meeting of the Board of Health yesterday, the resident Physician stated that he had been called to four or five violent cases of Cholera, but only one had any symptoms of the malignant disease.— It had not spread, whatever it might actually have been, and none of the attendants of the patients had been taken ill. We fervently hope that our citizens may be spared the dreadful vi sitation of this disease, but as sincerely assure them that should it again take up its abode amongst us, we shall consider it our duty to in form them of its first approaches; at present, we repeat, the disease is not here. Cincinnati, July 29.—It is not to be disguised that the present mouth of July has brought much more than an ordinary share of disease upon us. Iu Ju'y, 1833, the cholera prevailed as an epidemic. The burials reported for the month were 360. We give the monthly numbers for July of the three preceding years. 1830, 1S31, 1832, 1S34, This latter number is produced by adding 60 for the week ending to-morrow. Without that, the reported number is 214. In comparison with every season for the last five, except 1833, there is a vast increase of mortality. The last weekly report of July, 1833, gave 122 burials, of which 62 wese noted as cholera, leaving 59 to tne account of other diseases. This number exceeds any week of the present month, when the cholera cases are deducted. The health of the city is not good; but the pre valent diseases are not epidemic, much less con tagious. It is believed that none need appre hend any thing from visiting us, who are pre pared to conduct themselves with a proper re gard to the preservation of health. Washington, (Pa.) July 25.—The board of health of this town, under date of Friday, July 05 report the death of 6 persons by cholera dur ing that week. Of these deaths, three were in one family, two in another, and the 6th case was that of a German emigrant who had lately ar rived in town. We are glad to observe that the disease was not likelv to spread, as a report of the 29th—four days after—mentions that there had been no new cases or deaths, since the 24th. The resident physicians of the town make a short address to their fellow citizens, which is published in the Washington Reporter. It is earnest in the recommendation of caution as to diet and of cleanliness. Believing their opi nions, as expressed, orthodox, and their advice wholesome, we make an extract from their ad dress for the benent oi reuuers in mis vicumy. Observe, (say these physicians) the utmost cleanliness about your persons and property; pry into every suspected corner, and instantly re move all nuisances that may be found. A free use of quick lime for white-washing or sprinkling over decaying or putrid substances which cannot be removed, will be useful in cellars; sinks, privies, &c. may be quickly, cheap ly and thoroughly purified by fumigating them with chlorine gas developed by mixing com mon salt and oil of vitriol, in earthen-ware ves sels and placing them in the places desired to be purified. Clothe yourselves rather warmer than usual—preferring woollen fabrics. Avoid a cold damp atmosphere. In raw or damp weather keep small fires in your sitting and bed rooms—retire to bed early. “ Observe a strict temperance in diet and drink; eat your meals regularly, yet moderately; avoid all acid, raw fruits, such as cherries, cur rants, rasp and blackberries, &c. also, all crude vegetables, such as radish, lettuce, cabbage, beans, peas, dec.—You may safely eat bread, potatoes, (preferring those of last year;s growth) ric-\ barley, eggs, mutton, beef, veal, and poul try’* “Cultivate and cherish a serene and cheerful fra mi* of mind—all the disagreeable passions axe injurious—fear, particularly so—it depres ses and enfeebles both mind and body, and thereby predisposes to the disease. Let no man tamper with medicine to prepare him for or prevent the disease. When you abe well, let yocrself alone; you cannot be in a better state to resist or meet the disease.—Taking medicine when not demanded, invites the dis ease, by irritating and deranging the stomach. Fortitude, attention to the means suggested and a calm reliance upon Divine Providence are the most rational and best safeguards against infection/’ _ ___ PLEASURE GARDENS.

DURANT’s ASCENSION AT BOSTON From the Boston Courier of Friday. Mr. Durant’s Ascension.—If we were in the habit of using expressions, which some good people would call profane, we would swear by lJupter that Mr. Durant is the most intrepid of mortals. He bade goodbye to the surface of our dirty planet yesterday, at half past five, and bent his course towards Ursa Major. Whether he reached either of the worlds that compose that magnificent constellation, we are not able to say, having received no despatches from our correspondent in that region for several days —owing to the irregularities in the transmis sion of the mails, or to the villainy of the deputy postmasters at the intervening offices. We have no doubt, however, that Mr. Durant arrived safe; for about 9 in the evening we saw, or thought we saw a small opaque object on one of the bright stars in the handle of the dip per, alias, the tail ot the Great Bear, which we took to be Mr. Durant’s balloon, and also per ceived a slight tremulous motion, caused no doubt by the waving of his flag when he landed. We did not hear the shouts of the populace when they first caught a view of the wanderer from our system; but we should think that those which accompanied his departure hence might have been heard on Saturn or Herschel, or any of the planets belonging to our neighboring sys We have given orders to Mercury, to keep on the look-out during the night, and make a re port, for a second edition. Public attention has never been more keenly excited than It was to witness the departure of Mr. Durant. The whole population of the city and the adjacent villages were out to witness the spectacle. Not only the spacious amphi theatre, erected for the purpose, but the Com mon the Malls, the Mill-dam, the Bridges, and the tops of houses were tilled with specta tors', and presented a most magnificent spec tacle. The laces were as glorious to behold as a. field of tulips. The balloon, in ten minutes ap peared hardly larger than an orange. P S. At sunset last evening, Mr. Parker tele graphed from his outer station “Mr. Durant’s balloon touched the water 5 miles from Marble head harbor.” Passengers in the Nahant steam boat report that they saw the balloon descend towards the water, but that it rose again and stood off towards Cape Ann. No other infor mation had been received of the voyager or his balloon up to the time our paper went to press. From the Boston Advocate of Friday. At a little after seven o’clock, the blue flag was hoisted at the Observatory, to signify that Mr. Durant had lighted in the water! The com munication at the station is, that he passed Na hant and descended in theojean. 5 miles outside of Marblehead. He is prepared with a life-pre server, and will be able to sustain himself in the water sometime. Boats from Nahant and Marblehead were off to give assistance, but great anxiety was felt for his safety. ° At sunset the outer telegraph reported that the balloon took the water five miies below Marblehead. At nine o’clock, the Captain of the steamboat Hancock, from Nahant. reported at the Treraont House, that Mr. Durant touch ed in the water four miies east of Cape Ann, and that there was a number of vesseis near to render assistance. The balloon touched several times and rose again. The Hancock made an at tempt to go in pursuit, but found it fruitless, from tilt* progress of the balloon. Its course was straight out to sea, no land intei veiling, and Mr. D’s only chance of rescue was falling in with some vessel after sunset. We fear he is lost. Eleven o'clock.—No further intelligence.— There are numerous anxious euquirers at the. Treiront. .

ALEXANDRIA MUSEUM OPEN, daily, from 10 to 12 o’clock A. M. and from 3 to 5 P M, jtfn 24 - -- From Xttp Grenada.—The brig Montilla, C-apt. Beckman, in 36 clays from Carthagena, furnishes intelligence of the continuation of shocks of earthquakes at Santa Martha. I he inhabitants living in terror and dismay Irom the spot. The place almost totally destroyed by the violent action of the earth, which heaved to and fro in a manner resembling the motion ol the sea. At Carthagena the shocks were not felt. The exclusive privilege of navigating with steamboats the river Magdalena, has been con tinued by the Congress of New Grenada to Mr. J. B. Elbers. .. Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific by a rail roail._The New Grenadian Congress has issu ed a decree authorising the President to receive proposals from individuals or companies for the construction of a rail or even carriage road across the isthmus of Panama, from the Atlan tis to the Pacific Ocean, to be commenced with in two years.—The President has therefore in vited proposals from Columbians or foreigners to be addressed to the Secretary of the interior and Foreign Relations before the 15th January next. The remuneration to the contractor will be the tolls on the road for a term of years— from 10 to 50—according to the description of road he may make. He is further to receive 20,000 acres of land in the Isthmus, which shall be free from all taxes except local ones for the period of twenty years, and the occupants of which shall be exempt from all military duty, ! except in case of actual invasion. The lands I thus granted, however, must be settled in one I year from the date of the grant. I Another tariff'of duties has been again enact ed for New Grenada. Treasury.—The official returns for the two first quarters of the year are, we learn, nearly complete—and instead of the estimates of se ven and a half millions from customs, the a mount exceeds eight millions—and instead of one and a half millions from the sales of pub lic land, the amount exceeds two millions. In deed, we are told that from these two sources, the receipts will exceed Mr. Taney’s computa tion in June last, in his report to the Senate, nearly three fourths of a million.—Lilobc. Mr. Burden's Steam-Boat.—We. regret to learn that a serious accident happened to this boat yesterday morning. The boat left Albany or Troy at 5 o’clock for this city, and when near Castle.ton, 10 or 12 miles below the former place, struck on a bar. and bilged one of her cylenders, which filled, and she sunk on that side. The engineer arrived last evening in the Erie. It is supposed the boat will not be got afloat, and that the machinery will have to be taken out. We understand there were no pas sengers on board.—N.

Mr. ALEXANDRIA: TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 4, 1834. A WORD IN SEASON. We have a word to say to the United SRates Telegraph. The editor of that journal wp not take it amiss, we are sure, that we shoul<^peak calmly, dispassionately, but yet candidly and plainly, in opposition to some of his views, and particularly in opposition to what we consider an improper course pursued by him in relation to a political matter. “ Hear us for our cause,” and have respect for our motives, “ that you may the better judge.” The Telegraph admits, with us, that the Go vernment is badly administered; that the pow er and patronage of the General Government are used for party purposes; that gross corrup tion exists in some of the Departments at Wash ington; that fearful inroads have been made or attempted upon the State rights principles; that a successor to the President has already been named, and an organized effort already com menced, to register the royal edict and elect the “chosen servant.” All these, and a variety of other things of the same nature, the Telegraph unites with us in denouncing and opposing. The Telegraph also agrees with us that it is ne cessary fof the prosperity of the country—the ultimate triumph of correct principles, and the proper administration of the government, that a change should be made in the principal pub lic agents; and that a President of the United States should be elected, to succeed the present incumbent, who would make a thorough “ re form” in the action of the General Govern ment, and the conduct of many of those en gaged in its employment. To effect so desirable an object, the Tele graph also agrees with us in believing that there must be an union of the honest men of all par ties in opposition to the present dominant party, or rather, we presume, the Telegraph agrees with us in this last opinion. Now, the state ment of this proposition, in itself, shows that there are different parties to reconcile—differ ences of opinion on many topics to be overlook ed, and former disputes to be forgotten. If, for instance, the Nullifiers were to refuse to unite with the National Republicans, or vice versa, what head could be made against Executive encroachment and the abuses of power? How would Mr. Calhoun and his friends have been able successfully .to have resisted the preroga tive claims put forth during the late session of Congress, without the aid of Mr. Clay and his friends? These are simple questions, and they are not to be leaped over without being an swered. If this union of which we speak, and which is so ncessary, required the sacrifice of a single principle—if it culled for the least deviation from honor or propriety—if it required the abandonment of any ground heretofore taken— ifit were not in the highest degree praiseworthy and patriotic, we, for ourselves, would wash our hands from its contamination; we would “touch not, taste not, handle not the unclean thing.” But it does none of these. It permits every man the freest exercise of his political opinions, however contrary and diverse they may be in theory, and only asks for the practical exhibi tion of those which can be employed in regene rating the country, in supporting sound Repub lican doctrines, and in securing the Liberty of the People, the Rights of the States and the Union of the States. Now, in this state of the case, what is the po sition of the Telegraph, a leading political jour nal, exerting its influence upon the people, and entitled to consideration from the talents of its editor, its location, and its connexion with one of the important parties into which the citizens of this country are divided? Not such an one as we would desire it to assume, judging fioin its columns of Thursday last. What are we to think when we see such sentiments as these, then put forth?— “ VVe had hoped that the usurpations of the present administration would have contributed to awaken the intelligent of all parties to a sense of the dancers which surround us, but we are note fully convinced that such is the force of party airangement, and such the selfishness of the old party leaders, that the struggle in that section [the North] will sink into a mere scram ble for office.” Anil what is the ground on which the Tele graph puts forth this grave charge? Because, forsooth, in Philadelphia, during a late visit, the editor saw the old party leaders again taking an active part: or, in other words, in the City of Philadelphia the friends of the Nullification doctrine were not made so prominent as was wished! And was it not natural that in Phila delphia, where Nullification has but just obtain ed a foothold, such men—u’ell known, highly esteemed, and deservedly popular—as John Ser geant, Matthew Carey, James Gowen, dtc. &c., should, on a public occasion, be more promi nent than the leaders of what is there, at least, a tieip party? Would it not be thought very strange, if, on the celebration of a political tri umph in the City of Charleston, Robert Y. Hayne, James Hamilton, H. L. Pinckney and others, should have given way for the friends of Mr. Clay, however respectable they might have been? But the Telegraph goes on: “ We foresee that each and all of the parti sans [viz: Clay, McLean, Webster,] are desti ned to experience a disappointment, bitter in proportion to the degree of hope with which they are now animated—for we believe that they will each insist on adhering to his own favor ite, while the State Rights party vill under no circumstances go for either And have the State Rights party, pray, ever been asked to go for either, by any other party? or has any other party but the Jackson party ever said that “ under no circumstances will it go for” Mr. Calhoun!—for to that complexion does this seem to come. Superciliousness or dictation would be the only thing which could induce, under present circumstances, uiul at this time, such a determination. The Telegraph goes on: “ We are prepared to see the whole National Republican party making war upon us. because we will not surrender principles, upon the main tenance of which, we believe depends the per petuity of the Union and the prosperity of the country/’ Now we have seen no such indications—not half as many, at lea t. as v.e have seen eviden ces of hostility, bitter and undisguised, to what was the National Republican r /uty. We might continue our extract? from the arti cle in the Telegraph which r< ntuins the senten ces we have quoted, all of th • no tenor but it is unnecessary. We consider t fthem im proper, ill timed, and unjustifie ^ d > far from the friondsofMr. Calhoun, and even the friends of Nullification, having any thing to complain of in the conduct of those who assume to be allies;” the very reverse is no more than what is due; they ought not to raise a finger or utter a word, but in commendation. What would Mr. Calhoun and the Nullificrs of the South be at this moment, but for the magnanimity, the honor of Henry Clay—reviled, abused, denoun ced as he is. Yes! illustrious man! Noble, gen erous, even in your faults—high minded in your very errors, it has been your fate, throughout life, to have been assailed by those who have received (he most kindness at your hands;—tl.«* loftiness of your character has only served to make you a fairer mark lor the arrows of “ en vy and uncharitableness.” We regard not this, however, ft is a fact not to be disputed, that there are no substantial reasons for the ap parent jealousy and disaffection of the Tele graph. The doctrine of State Rights is uni formly and steadily increasing—hardly a voict is raised by “ the allies” in opposition to tlu promulgation and spread of these doctrines— no candidate for the Presidency that could br named in opposition to Mr. Van Buren would be objected to, if he were the straitest of that sect. Nay, if that is what the Telegraph is af ter, and it must be so, place John C. Calhoun in opposition to Mr. Van Buren, and nine tenths of the Whigs would gladly support the South ern statesman. Exceptions there might he to all this in persons and in presses; but the great body of the party would gladly take him in preference to the annointed heir apparent. Is there any thing seen in all this to justify the co vert attach made by the Telegraph upon the Whig party? Let us speak plainly. It is our custom. We were brought up to despise equivocation and cunning. Does the Telegraph expect to fright en people into a support of particular men or ^ measures by holding out the threat of non con currence in any but such as may please a cer tain party? Then, let it be assured, it pursues * a suicidal policy. “ It is cutting its own throat.” ; There are others who can non concur as well as the Telegraph and its friends. The star of ; South Carolina is not the sun of the firmament. It does not follow, therefore, that all should pay 1 homage to it’s splendor. The Telegraph will ; understand us. We speak thus of others, and of the known course of events when operated 1 upon by similar causes. As for ourselves, no* j all the threats of all the presses in the country could swerve us from the course which we hot. estly think is right and proper. “ Fain ce ! faut arrive ee quit pourra” is a motto under which we hope to live and die. But it is more ! than probable that dictatorial language, “self . righteousness,” and claims to exclusive patriot ism on the part of a small party, will continue to make that party “ a miserable minority,” as its enemies have termed it—as the Jackson pat ty now triumphantly proclaim it. Will it he en dured that the leaders of that party should con tiuually brand every other party in the coun try w ith the most opprobrious epithets and apply • to them the most insulting language, and they to stand unrebuked? Will it be permitted that the organ of that party, indebted to the kind ness of its former foes for no inconsiderable fa vors, should now haughtily demand a surrva der of every thing to the claims of its friend and patrons? Just as suie as such a course ic persisted in—persevered in, just so sure "il* ! alienation and distrust take place,—just so sure will the purposes of the friends of the Admins tration be answered in the breaking up of that “ combination” which, at present, is their great est dread. The Telegraph throws itself in an 1 attitudeofhostility to the Anti-Jackson, AntM a Buren, and indeed every other party but t , Nullification party. We predict that itcannct j maintain that attitude; it will be much, mui' j easier to fall into the ranks of an organized corps than to be like a wandering Arab, flying about the great desert of Politics, raising it' hand against every man, and having every man’s hand rais(*u againsi it. It strikes us, that under no untoward circum stances, and permitting tilings to have then proper and natural turn, there would not, alter a few years, be more than two great parties in this country—they swallowing up and ab sorbing all those which at present exist: the 01f supporting the rights, privileges and preroga tives of Executive power particularly, and pov er generally; the other contending for the right of the States, the accountability of public agent and the retrenchment of all power as well a? all expense. Experience has shown that this is the natural division of parties in all stater Such a division will take place here: a great contest now commenced will then be fought fairly,—and the result is not uncertain, unle.-r the hopes of the friends of Republican l^r'
