On Wednesday evening. the New York Academy of Medicine held tbelr usual monthly meeting, but it was marked with unusual interest. The nubjtot of the allpervading and mysterious cholera bad for a long time part, engaged the private speculation of Us members, and their stated committee on public health had be?n charged with the duty of making a report upon that universal scourue of our raoe A Very elaborate one vas accordirgly presented by Or Kasle, combining, a* Le lemarked, reparate labus of every individual of the committee, which it had been his province, as chairman. to incorpora'e into a connected tr atlse on the hlnory, origin, detcrip'lon. treatment, and character of the (license, with u statement of precautionary me* sure", tending to prevent i-.s approach, or diminish its violence It will not he to the purpose to enter into detail upon any of these matters, as the report having been prepared previous to the appearance of the cholera at the Quarantine at Staten Uland, was necessarily silent on that all-absorbing event. After assigning to this distate a very hitch antiquity indeed making it contemporary with Hyponrates himself-a circumstance which entitles it oertainly to the distinguished position which it maintaius in sooiety?the committee proceeded to speak of the prevalent theories of it? or'gin; the atmospheric. animalcularian, telluric, elec' 4 trie and magnetic, but could arrive at no condition after all, but the profound one of Marshall Hall, "that Its origin was very obscure " Decide its cause, the public is principally concerned in its prevention and cuie. On tbfse topics tbe report was sensibie and full, hut added little or nothing to what we hive all been repeatedly advised of the publications of the Board of Health and others in the daily press. After this documi nt was disposed cf, a let'er from Capt. I.yndt-s. of the Havre paokel sbi^. which lately a>rlv<dat Quarantine, from that city, was read It stated thst bis vessel, with neatly four hundred souls on board, ail in ?ood health on their departure from Havre, where this di-ea-e was not then known to exist, bad been s.-ventten d?ys only, in which they had made a very pro?? tr u< run. when the fir*t patient on board made application to him for modi in*. 8?vera' Others were luon taken rick with siuiiltr s<mptom<, I?ur oa P' rn\ U pirHunucu ' . u w .< >u ?? <a j u i n way, supposing them to b* afflicted with diarmuci or dyseatery ; but they all died to the number, 1 think, of a> out aaozeu Down to ihe writing of the letter, which wan dated yesterday, out of uiutteeen cisei at sea, and on the Island, but two or thre finally aur tivrd In addition to Ih re fact' another very pregnant one wax stated, that two cases of cholera In perious not connected with the (hip. and aituattd in another part , f the hospital. had oocurred . On this intelli(?enoe Dr. Dralte moved that when the i , Academy fhall adjourn, they adjourn to meet on ! . Tuesday evening next. Connected with this was , anether re.?olnti >n by Or Stevens, '.hat the Committee I on Public lit alth be instructed to investigate the I course of the difease now prevalent at (|uaranMne and ! , make a report thereof at the next ression of the V"(- ] dtmy The motion or a special meetin,' of the Aaa. ] demy was earnestly opposed by Dr Ilee*. be-aiire its | object vould get abroad, and materially aggravate toe i alarm already prevailing in the community. , On the other side.

Contrary to the rrcoived theory, Is It then com- , liiunirable from one person tv another? It would seem to It Is of the very last importance to know, and , does It not derolve car body, as a depository of m? dlcal science, as well as a conservator of toe publio safety, to stiae the present favorable occasion to en- , large the boundaries of the one. while it is laboring dcv. tedly for the presi rvation of theoh-r?

A'.r JoM.vof Tennessee, and others, interposed objections, conceiving that the resolution was out of order. Mr. Afhmi !* said that it was in order, notwithstanding the objectiAns. He did not understand that tQern were any rules in force; those that were adopted, exp red with the lust session The Cha'r. however, seemed to entertain a different opinion. Uut it is wrong, owing to a mi'priiit in the journal He had looked at the manuscript, and there discovered that the rules heretofore adopted were confined to the first session.

And the serene associations of these rural cities of the dead was aptly po?trsyed as beautifully appropriate to nature and the sjEij nth'fs of the living.

The m asurea ' which hare since been adept*d by this government are the most rlgcrous which the Cavaignac system of the pretent day could devise. The Assembly of the representatives of the people, has been removed from tbe capital to tb? city of Brandenburg, according to a royal decree, and is prorogued nntil the 27th inat. The Burgher Guard of Berlin, la dissolved, and required to deliver up ita arma. A reinforcement Of 20.(00 troops haa been ordered Into the city, and Is quartered in the citizens' as the caserns are al{ filled with ao!diera. Finally, the city hat been declared in a state of siege, and ?ill, In case any resistance la offered on the part of the oltliena In consequence of line frearurva of the government, be bombarded by (ienerak Vt n Wrangel who keepa the olty completely Miiri ui.aro wiin ms ir?ti|>n The (Involution of the Burgher Guard war decreed In crt,nijnence of It* having offered protection to the National Assembly. which had contiuiwd it* dalibera<icni> in (hi* ritj. tn opposition to the ardor of tha government All the member* of the Assembly, with the exception of tha extreme right, bad protected aca'rst the removal of the A*?enih|y and it* pr<<r><? lion, a* an unlawful measure of the government. and had almost unanimously pa*a*d the resolution that th*t measure should he declared null and void. Further. tl ?j hud resolved to declare the Assembly permanent until the royal decree removing and proroguing the Assembly should be withdiawn, and to oontinue their deliberate* In Berlin The government had litreupon summoned the a?si*Unoe ct the Burgher (Ju*rd. for the |>urpo?e of di?per*ir.g the A*seiut>ly;. hut the citizens having refused to obey that unmmona, and havirg declared that they would offer every supf.ort end protection In their power to the A**emb!y. the military wai called into requisition The Burgher lluard having b?en ordered out in every quarter of tha city, and several battalion* having bean drawn up round the National Aircmbly for It* protection on the day the troop* h*d received orders to enter tha city, asanyninary collision wa* expected to en*ue Korturately, however, the cltixen* knowing tha aerlon* con*t<in?nee* which wonld follow kf they woatd offer / IE R A PAST TWO O'CLOCK. re?i*tance to the troops had resolved to withdraw in I caw of an attack of the military Thin a conflict between the llurghcr Guard ami the troop* wan prevented at the nio?t dangerous moment The mem- 1 V. .. , f I 1.1 ?

Used yesterday morning The citizeni not haviug delivered up their arms at that time, the government determined to dtelafe the city in a elate of siege y?aterday evening. A ministerial deoree, Issued yesterday evening, declares that, as the civil authorities hav? not been ahle to maintain public order. General Van Wr*ngel has been commissioned to adopt military measures for the purpose of preserving quiet. An order, issued by (Jeneral Von Wrangel. to day, declares all clubs and political societies to be dissolved. Assemblages mere than 20 persons in day time, and 10 persons at nliiht, will not be allowed to meet in the streets and public places. Newspapers and placards dare not be printed or publicly sold, without the permission of the president of the police. All strangers who cannot state the object of their stay in this olty, will be required to leave here in the oourse of twenty-four hours. No one is periritted to carry weapons without leave of the president of the police. Public trade and intercourse will not sulTer any interruption in consequence of the siege The excitement wbicb has been caused by these e*trenie treasures of the government is intense. In the 1 National Assembly, winch met yesterday evening for I the last. time, the resolution was nassed that the siege . of thlr city be declared as an illegal measure on the ' part of the government, and to be considered null and { void. The greatest part of the citizens have delivered up i tlielr arms to day, and it is believed that all the arms will be surrendered to-morrow. Th* course the citizens have decided to follow, is not to offer resistance ! at pruent, bet to wait until the time for action w>ll oome. The tranquillity of th? city has not been disturbed since yesterday, although the greatest excitement prevails The palace and all public places ami budding*, are guarded by military. Strong patrols traverse the street* throughout tne city. On some of the publlo places cannon is drawn up. No journals have appeared to-day, nor will be published as loug as the siege lasts.

It may Interest seme of your readers to learn some facts in reference to Beach alias Thompson, who came The young man. immediately after the arrival of the steamer, put up'at the Vine Hotel; the nest day he left with bfs carpet bag, apparently very heavy, for London?came back with It light, and displayed a large amount of Bank of England notes, varying in (ite from i.'G to ?100. He left again tba day following, with a young lady of Ae town for Liverpool, via London. About thin time a Mr. Barnum arrived, and called on L. R. Crotkey, the American Consul, who recollect* d the young man an described, and after a ; short rearch found bt* lodging place, and in hia room a large leather trunk, which contained about $6 DUO 'I Inn wan taken ponnension of by consul, and will he banded over to the right owners ; but it ia strongly suspected that the young roaue baa made good hid eicape with the balance, as the lady had returned without ber companion, and had no doubt given him the alarm. It is to b? hoped that this will be considered as a good dividend on the (17 *200, the amount that tbls young thief appropriated to hltown u?e without the cobtent of the owners. Tim Cholera In Kliropc. |Krom the Kuropean Times.

The Improved statu of the weather may have conduced to this result. From the provinces the da>ly returns appear wiihout any cafes reported But in F.dinburgli the milady still prevails to Mime extent the new <;a*ts are scarcely eTer under 2>) daily; the deaths are from to 10 daily. l'p< n the whole we are inclined to hope that the disease bas eliubtly lessened in violence, at any rate it ha* not made progress. Two ca?es??e reported from (ilasgow; and we learn from Scotland that it dow attack* persons above tbe lower classes in London. Mr. Bund, the prime warden of tbe (iold.-mith's Company, one of tbe highest f.ffleers in the Corporation of London bas fallen a victim From France we have no farther accounts of its extension; and it haa almost disappeared at Berlin l.'pnn a review of the general : itate *f health in Knglar.d th re is n' thinir to came needles alarm.

[From the Bcstcn Advertiser, Deo. 7 ] We are again indebted to our correspondent, for official reports ?f the progress of the cholera at St Petersburg, and in other parts of Russia, of the 31st of Octeber and 7th of November The number of oases ; In tn? last week had. In some degree, augmented, vary- ; ir g from fi and V to IK and 27 cases per day. and the deaths averaging about 6 per day. In Mo?cow, at the la't date the disease hal nearly disappeared; and. accordirg to accounts from the interior, it had generally I abated; and at Tamboff. Taganroe. and other places, It had entirely dlsuppeaied. The cold weather had set In, and it was beginning to snow at the latest date. [From the Boston Courier, Dee. 7 ] A letter from Smyrna, of October 31 received In this city, states that tbe cholera had broken out anew there, with a dozen new caies per day. It was feared that the sickness would increase, as tbe rainy season waa about tu fet In; and it was the opinion of the in habitants, that the deaths from the disease would amount to two hundred and fifty a day, as in the warmest days there is a continual mist rising from the , city, which conduces to the dictate.

[From the London Times, Not. 11 ] If the alleged p rtlculars of that new development 1 of tbe passion for territorial ag{randiz"ment, announced id the last intelligence from tbe United States, are founded oa fact, a negotiation has been pending for some months between the Cabinets of Wasbirgton and Madrid, for the cession to the former power of the rich island of uha in consideration of a tun. of money tj be presently paid down The Atneriran journals are duly Impree-ed with the importance of tbe supposed transaction which they represent as certsln to create a prodigious sensation throughout 1 K.nrope ; but, without dtnying the reasonableness of ! some such a| prehensions, we conceive that tlia sub- | ject need hardly lie permitted so completely t? upset onr equanimity or disturb otir judgment Tli* Uif portiton oi inn >p?tnsn government part with thin nutlyir>g portion of its possession* calls for no esp? cial criticism : but of it* ti*ht. by any maxims of morality or public law. to alienate It* moot marketable property to the detriment of it* just oredltors, a ' great dial mora might ba curdy said if ? w?*r?
