The Cuoleea. The startling announce
ment that a vessel has arrived off Ualifax
with a large number of cases of cholera
on board, is an admonition of duty to
prepare for the inevitable presence of that
scourge in the great cities of the country.
For many months, it has been steadily ap
proaching, on a route fixed and certain as if
ctehneii by engineer's surveys. Scientific
men familiar with the history of previous
visitations have watched its progress, and
have been able to tell, with great precision,
when and where it would next appear. It
has been long known that our own country
lay directly in the path of its circuit of the
I3y what gate the epidemic will find admis
sion, it is not easy to tell. Heretofore, its
entry has been through the Northern ports,
by the way of Canada and thj; river St. Law
rence. The appearance of the Atlanta in New
York harbor last Fall, with many cases on
board, induced the impression that the metro
polis --likelyio he &rt-attncked in tJiis i
visitation, liul the disease did not spread
beyond the fatal hull of that ship. Its pre
sence in the bay was accidental and fortui
tous. Scientists still assert that it will be
gin to ravage the British provinces first.
It is well to look our danger in the lace.
The calm and philosophical appreciation of
a grave hazard, is the surest guarantee of free
dom from panic when it shall come fully
upon us. Our authorities, aud the people at
large, have ample time to prepar for meeting
the ghastly and unwelcome visitant. Science
and research exhibit to us the methods by
which its devastations may be measurablj
averted. Cholera thrives in filth, and holds
high carnival among the votaries of vice and
dissipation. Its first and almost its only vic
tims will be those who blindly and criminally
neglect those plain hygienic precautions
which are always the conditions of good
health. It will turn away instinctively where
the brush and broom, water and soap, have
been engaged in the work of purification
and deodorization. It will crawl stealthily
into the close alleys and miasmatic lanes; re
velling in the charnel-houses of slime and
pollution ; writhing through the dark, dank
atmosphere of crowded and ill-ventilated
apartments ; enfolding in its awful and fatal
embrace the neglected bodies the children
of poverty and inheritors of misery, and mul
tiplying with ten-fold horrors, the wretch
edness of pauperism.
Society owes a duty to itself and to those
who are its least respected members, in such
an emergency as now seems to impend before
us. Dirt and degradation are antaconistic to
divine law, and to moral good. The injunc
tion to cleanliness comes with awful force
and solemnity when it is enunciated from the
mouth of an open grave. The sanitary ordi
nances of erefy city should be rigorously and
unsparingly enforced. If long habitude in
misbehavior has made some indifferent to the
possible consequences, they must be forced to
act, by the prompt interference of those who
are entrusted with the power of municipal ad
ministration. Let the gutters be cleansed,
the sewers opened, the heaps of garbage re
moved from the streets, first. Then let every
house be subjected to a rigid inspection,
and the inmates compelled to purify in every
case where the conditions of pestilence are
found to exist.
This is natui allv the season of the year
most favorable to the spread of those diseases
which have their origin in local impurities.
All the accumulated garbage ?F the winter
islvins? urjon the streets. As the frost breaks
out of the ground, and the hot beams of the
April sun come streaming down, heaps ot
offal that have been frozen for months, are
converted into masses of putrefaction, giving
forth malarious vapors to taint the atmos
phere. Hence the great importance of energy
and fidelity in the discharge of duty on the
Dart of our Health Commissioners and btreet
Inspectors, who will find in every direction
abundant need for their services.
Wc observe that at the meeting of our
Common Council last evening, a communica
tion was presented from a number of physi
cians, asking special action for the ventila
tion of the wardsat the Aims-House in view
of the approaching epidemic. This is a
significant hint in a particular direction
of precautions which should be made gen
There is no occasion for panic. Experi
ence teaches, that, dreadful as are the ravages
of cholera, it is almost always preventable
when right measures are taken to cuard
against its effects. It would be criminal to
ignore the danger, or to neglect adequate pre
parations against it. But when proper ad
vantage has been taken of those safeguards
which science has provided, we can calmly
await the attack of the scourge, convinced
that they will fall lightly upon us. Beyond all
things else, unnecessary alarm is to be avoid
ed. In seasons of pestilence, panic always
slays more victims than are destroyed by
positive disease. Mnj. General Jones.

was certain, he surrendered himself in hopes of
securing a trial. Among hundreds of loyal men

Revenue Stamps may be used indiscriminately
upon any of the matters or tilings enumerated in
schedule B, except proprietary and playing card
stamps, for which a special use has been provided.
Postage stamps cannot be used in payment of
the duty chargeable on instruments.
It is the duly of the in:iker of an instrument to
affix and cancel the stamp ihereon. II he neglects
to do so, the party for whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if used after the
30th of July, 1804, and used without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any
failure upon the part of the maker of an instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia
ble to a penalty of two hundred dollars.
Suits are commenced in many States by other'
process than writ, viz: summons, warrants, pub
lication, petition, &c, in which case these, as the
original process, severally require stamps.
Writs of scira facias are subject to stamp duty
as original processes.
The jurat of an affidavit, taken before a Justice
of the Peace, Notary Public, or other officei duly
authorized to take affidavits, is held to be a cer
tificate, and is subject to a stamp duty of five
cents, except when taken in suits of legal proceed
ings. Certificates of loan in which there shall appear
any printed or written evidence of an amount of
money to be paid on demand or at anv time de
signated, arc subject to stamp duty as Promisory
The assignment of a mortgage is subject to the
same duty as that imposed upon the original in
strument ; that is to say for Ivery sum of five
hundred dollars, or any fractional part thereof, of
the amount secured by the mortgage, at time of
its assignment there must be affixed a stamp or
stamps, denoting a duty of five cents.
When two or more persons join in the execution
of an Instrument, tlie stamps to which this instru
ment is liable under the law, may be affixed and
cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that the stamp affixed must answer to tlie value
of the estate on interest conveyed.
No stamp is required on any warrant of attor
ney accompanying n bond or note, when such
boud or note has affixed thereto the stamp or
stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever
any bond or note is secured by mortgage, but one
stamp duty is required on such papers, such
stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or cither of them. In such a
case a note or memorandum of the value or de
nomination of the stamp affixed should be made
upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of
the instrument which is not stamped.
