The see by a telegraphic dispatch Iii the journal of tuesday that the cholera had arrived at new York and that four deaths occurred in quarantine on Staten Island on the 8th inst. This is intelligence that interests every person in the Community and the question now arises what can be done to guard against its Entrance into our City we firmly believe that the cholera is not contagious that the atmosphere is filled with the elements that create the disease and that no person is attacked whose system Ami habits Are perfectly regular. To further believe that if a City is properly purified of All putrid matters and substances stagnant water or anything that is calculated to produce sickness under Ordinary circumstances it is not so liable to an attack of inc cholera As one containing putrid and unwholesome matters. The time that the cholera will reach this City is Uncertain it is hut a few weeks since we heard of its arrival in London and now we hear thut it has reached new York 3.000 Miles West of London it May be a few weeks and it May be is Many months before it reaches this place hut no time should to lost in preparing for its approach. To further this object we would recommend that the Council at its first meeting form n Board of health of the regular and Well informed physician of our City giving Thorn full Power and Means to adopt such measures is they Muy think Best calculated to prevent its Entrance. Physicians have made Tho diseases and conditions of Tho body the canuso of sickness aic., their study and Are belter qualified to adopt measures for this emergency than any other class of men. We believe that the City should be renovated from Garret to cellar that Lime should he scattered in the streets and cellars that the streets should to cleansed and kept clean that the various animal Gravo Yards in the suburbs of Tho City should to cleared and that All measures tending to purify the atmosphere should be adopted such Are the measures a Board of health would adopt. The above arc our candid convictions and opinions on this subject a if they Aro thought worthy of adoption by the citizens and Council let it to Dono a if not let some person suggest n better course to he adopted and it shall have our Hearty co operation. Our object is to try and a a Bend the approaching pestilence and not to dictate measures to either the Council or City. That the cholera will visit this state is just As certain As that we All must die experience has taught us this and All prudent communities should Endeavor to mitigate its violence of much As they can.
