ChoUra Iiitrriikln^-Almost a Panic, The public feeling began to he excited in a very extraordinary drgrc? yesterday, on the publication of the usual rejavrts upon the cholera. This excitement ptew out of the aggregate number ol deuihe, us vv el! ns the character of some of the casualties which are now beginning to ufl'ect the higher classes of society. Hitherto, the great bulk of deaths from cholera took place among the unknown and obscure emigrants from foreign countries?those persons whose habits of life, in some degree, were entirely unknown. Yesterday, however, the report showed an aggregate of 158 cases, fiftyfive death*, and sixteen only discharged. Hut among these caees we have to enumerate the deaths of persons w ho were respectable and well known citizens, both in the professional and in the business community of this metropolis. David h. Ogden, Esq , a distinguished practitioner at the bar; James Hevburn, Esq., a well known cotton broker in Wall street; Alexander WykolT, Esq., Secretary ?>t the Hudson Railroad Company, with some others of similar rank, have been quite suddenly swept away in the course of the last few days. In addition to the alarm caused by these deaths, there have been found certuin die, crepancies between the reports of the Sanitary (\jniiii1frp it rail <?f fli#> fStv 1n?ri?>?'tnr u'lnrli nr?? nl Tether an extraordinary character. From the re port of the City Inspector, we learn that 481 death: by cholera look place last week?nuking almost7C per diem?while theaverage during the same period according to the committee, is a fraction under for ty. These unwonted discrepancies between twe legal authorities, upon such an important subjeel as deaths fioni cholera, huve produced in the public mind a great want of confidence, and have set reports afloat which have led the timid to believe that the casualties by this epidemic are much more numerous than cither of the authorities are willing to admit. In consequence of the above events, the panic increased to a fearful extent throughout the whole of yeeterduy. The death of the Hon. David U. Odgen produced a great sensation umong the members of he bar. and a meeting wus held us soon as the event became known, for the purpose of |mying a tribute of respect to his character and memory. It appears tbut Mr. Ogden wu engag d in a very imjiortant case in court, up to a late hour on Friday last. On that day, ufter the adjournment of the court, he hurried down to the Suien Island ferry boat, on the way to his residence on 8taten Island, where lie resides with his family. Friday was the hottest day we have had in these latitudes for ten years past. Mr. Ogden overheated himself, and, before he left the lerry boat, was seized with a diarthrra, and went to his home under the infurnce of it, and from w hich he never recovered. Mr Ogden was a man much esteemed in this community. He was a native of Newark, New Jersey, and a descendant of the old revolutionary stock of the Ogden family of that 8tate. Some years ago he wae elected by the federal party ol this State as member of Congress, and distinguished himself greatly in that capacity, both as a statesman sod a (Milittcian. Since that time he has devoted himself entirely to his professional busi arse, in which hr h?-Ui the highest rank among the member* of the New Vork bar, and only occasionally intermixed w ith politic*, nt imiif ?t the niinor fMate election*, lie war a man of the highest tnlenf, and wa* generally esteemed to he one tf the first lawyer* in the United States. Ilia practice, both in the federal arid .State courts, was Steoaive and highly lucrative ; hut for the iaet fifteen yearn or more, hi* legal service* were Bi t to lie obtained in common. He confined himself wholly to case* of great magnitude and importance, and to private consultation*, in which hie opinion waa eagetly sought, and was of great waight. For some year* past, he ha* been one of the permanent salaried counsel on behalf of the corporation of Trinity Church?counsel who are engaged in advance for this wealthy corporation, and cannot, therefore, ever be employed against it. Mr. Ogden wn* a man of stern integrity, of considerable profusion in hi* expenditures, and distinguished for a perfect csreloj-nes* about money Mid businee* affairs. At one time he received a* much aa forty thousand dollars in fees for professional services, in n matter connected with some foreign claims, to a large amount, and in lesa than ighietn months, it is said, he had expended the whole amount in various ways, lie held the po*t f Surrogate of this city some year* ago, having been appointed by (lovernor Seward, but lost f by ne of the common revolutions of parties, and was su|ierseded by Mr. McVean, at the appointment of Governor llouck. At the tunc of his death he was 74 years of sge. lis was still, however, an active and strong man, very rrguLr in his habits, and never omitting to take (,,? fimrninir snd eveninir walk Ilf Irivn behind him numerous d<*seend'lilf ?i?d and n Uiff Ktrk by nhnrg hi* value will be duly estimated, and kit loss sincerely iwwrn'd. He resided ?t Port Uichmond, nn furm Inland, where he breathed hi? la?t, within a few hours after leaving the ferry-boat, on Friday k?t. James Heybnrn, I>'i , in another distinguished victim of cholera. Hp was a citizen highly enframed in this community, and well known as nn pztensivp cctton broker, in Wall street. He w is t lf< d about M years, and was b?rn in Irelm J, and, we believe, in the city of Limerick. He firet came to this country in the year 1*517, when he was twenty-two For some years after hie arrival in this country, he resided at Baltimore, w here he married his first wife, a Baltimore lady, who died of the cholera in the year 15.12. lie afterwards married Mi-s Livingston, of thin city, as hie second wife, a few yi.ir- u">, whom he leaves behind a widow He was highly respected and beloved for his energy ami activity in promoting the purpose* ot several tieeful public institutions, lie was President ot the Society of th? Friendly *nts ot ^t Patrick, and Tieasufsf of the- Irish I ri lltr t Sm iety, ill which Capacities he averted hrnnelt wnh trsl, in protecting the friendless emigrant, and the daughter of adversity, from the cruelty and sh-riders of the wealthy and powerful e-ia?? ? ?i<. He wes also chairman of the Irt-h In iitl t ..ad UsHUIhr, it ike b aa u< ? of Which I hr took an active and lilteral part. He was a man highly esteemed for the pre|M>nde ranee of J the social feelings in his intercourse with i his fellow citizens. Ilia wit was exuberant ( and overflowinr, and he will be missed very t much at public dinners, w here his merry face < ' and sparkling good humor had a contagious and < catching influence on the persons within reach of I hit* laugh and good humor. H iring the last few , weeks, he betrayed great nervousiiea in relation to < , the cholera, and Was ollen heard to say that he < thought he should die of it at lust. On Friday ' lust, he was seen down in Wall street, apparently ] as well as usual, and attending to his usual business. He complained, however, to a friend, of | weakness from a slight diarrhoea, and went with the same friend to Pchnonieo's, where he took a glass oi Port wine eunguree. lie felt much betj ter, us he said, and great relief, after taking this, und afterwards went home. There, however, at his residence in the 2d avenue, a few hours after his return from business, he was suddenly attacked with the cramps, and, in spite of ull the beat ad- j vice and the greatest exertions made on his be- | half, he died on the next day, or rather Saturday i n ig tit. In the lust stage of his sickness, as a final , effort to restore the lost vitality to the collapsed surface, his physicians caused Ins body to be cog i v? red with hot suit ; but all was of no avutl. Alexander Wykofl, ICsq., is another distinguish- i i td victim of this fatal epidemic, whose death we | are called upon to record. He resided in Fourteenth stri et, and was a citizen highly respected; j he was in the prime of life, being hardly above forty years of age ; was a man of high rcspectaI bihty and fine business talents, and occupied the im, ortant and responsible p?st of Secretary of the Hudson Railroad Company, at the time of his dcuth. He had been to Peekakill a few days back, on oflicial business, and on Friday returned in the steamer, to the city. On the passage down, he was seized with incipient symptoms of the cholera, front which he never recovered. I)r. BrainarJ, of U07 Broadway, a physician in extensive practice, has, ulao, in spite of his own remedies and skill, succumbed to the destroying epidemic. These, and some other cases of d<*atli by cholera, among the respectable classes, inolud. ing even ladies, have all tended to produce un uncommon sensation in this city, and the dread I which is spread upon the public mind tnay be said j 1 i to huve increased to au extraordinary extant. | The Increase in the number of deaths miy j be attributed chiefly, if not altogether, to the sud- j I den and extraordinary variations in the weuther j which we have experienced in this city during the j 1 I jia?i wceK. Tins variation lias amounted to as I I much as u difference of 20 degress in twentyi four hours. Friday was the hottest day we h ive j had fc r ten years pust, and Saturday and Sunday were the coolest days ever known at this season of the year, for some years past. It has ulways j teen observed, that aft< r such variations as theje, ; ! the energy of this epidemic is usually much in- j r ' creased and its fatality augmented, as we have j I found it among us, to a great extent. Other causes j 1 , may he assigned, in connection wit.i the above, ! > i us exercising a great degree of influence. These j , are, carelessness, inattention, over exertion of | body, and, above <.11, fear acting on the mind. It ! ? is, therefore, very irn|>ortant that every jierson who , I is dow in the enjoyment of health, should keep J cool and pluck up courage, and not abandon him- ' i , 6elf to alarms, but pursue a moderate and teinj perate course, both as to eating and drinking,and by I no means suddenly to change his habits of life. | The intensity of the epidemic seems to strike : only particular localities in this metropolis, and, I upon an examination of those localities, they will i be found tn be under the iniluence of'deteriorating ' causes and substances, in vnnous shapes. In the i upi-er part of the city, on the North Kiver, a straw- i ger who has eyes and can read may see stuck j up?"the highest price paid here for dead horses;" 1 | and if lie lias a nose and can smell, he in ty trace, 1 along the wide and genteel avenues, and in the stirets branch ing off from thein, the existence of innumerable slaughter houses. No wonder the mortality is extraordinary und large in such localities as these, w here manufactories arc carried on winch i require dead and putrid carcases for their alimentation. In the lower wards, where the streets are clean, and no offensive manufactories are in operation, the cholera is moderate, and is scarcely even heard of. lleyond the limits of the city, in other parts of the United Plates, the country appears to enjoy 1 'olerable health, with the exception of certain Uti. tudes, such as Pt. Louis und Cincinnati, which api'Ciir to suffer more than any other places. There are yet, however, two months more of sumni'r still before us, and no one can predict what these i two months m?y bring forth. The Px.nwtva (Jonuressionai. Kt.trftovs.?The , | j-olitical character of the next House of Representatives will depend on the congressional ruction* about to ?.:k? |>ln? m sonic of the >S>uthero and Western Mates. Heretofore, *r have been very much disposed to hcluve lli.it the result of those election' would place the House of Representative* in a very critical position between the two faction* into which 'he country is divided? j wlng-<%nd democrats ; but '-oinerecent developn.enif at Washington have h d us to think that the , result of those elections will be more disastrous to i the pr? sent administration than w had reason to i expect pn viously. A n? w journal has been recently started in ! Washington, |>tnfereisg to sup5>ort th" aJministra- ' I tion exclusively, ami to teach the wing party, , throughout the country, what they are to believe and what to ihtnk, and what to love and h ite. In nduuicn to tln< newspaper, it seems the old < < mmittee, of which the Hon. Trumaa 9initb, ??' Corm < ticut, w as chairman, h is been revived, and a circular has h?en recently issued by that gentlemen, to the whig leaders and part trains throughout the States wh? re the elections are now pending. All tho<-e movements am hostile to th?r original policy which brought General Taylor into the pre ii|> 10 y, mid spring from the purpose* and objects of men behind the curtain, who are looking ahead to their own future advantage. They indicate design* for the future, and those very indication, will tend to in,ure the prospects of the candidates favorable to Gcnural Taylor's administration, in all the States where the elections are landing, to a much greater extent than pcopir may be aware of This is the way in which we interpret those instters; and we are willing to test on the issue of tltnso sU?i'nai?, to order to see whether we are right or wrong. Twr. Fik*t Friday or ArorsT.?This great and important day has been selected by 1'resident Taylor us a general day of fast and prayer throughout the country, and recommended to be observed as nu ll 1>y our ritir.?ns. The rescript, or proclima- ( tion, making this appointment, has been generally pt bliehsd, and has drawn forth a variety of replies and compliances from various classes of the people. It is hgood thing to fast and pray?particularly fur those who htivr lo-rn 111 tlic lmbit of ruling and wearing too much ; but fasting and praying for onr day can lie of very little service to the general constitnt tion of the body politic. It i? a regular course of homo'pathrcfaeting and praying wrhich can produce essential benefit among a ( hiistian people, and re- | store the tone of mental and phyeical health which w ill iilwaya put peatibnee and pride at defiance. It , ie an amiable, pi<uw,(ioil-feariug, good, and credi- i table thing, in an) chief maL'istrate, to eahibit those ( feelmgi nl rtlni? and piety which the prompting i and (in f ili ation of such a ree< ript naturally indi- ] [ rate ; hut it is etill something better for an intelli- | g? nt, religious, rnornl, and educated people to he l< ft lo th< ir ow n promptings, and their own l>e|- t mgs, in maiters ot pure morals and religion. Tne universal dominion claimed by the originated in ?> luiitary recommendations, similar to ttio<e ( wlneh sometimes issue Irom Presidents arid < lover- , , r? in this country. The PnoronD Expedition in Srakcii op Sir ' foiiN Franklin?Everybody remembers the feel ng and eloquent letter which Lady Franklin a<lIreserd to General Tuylor, requesting the nasi?, ance of the American government, by sending an exploring expedition to Hudson's liiy, in search jf the great navigator, Sir John Franklin, who nas been absent from England for some tune past l'he reply of the President, through the Secretary of State, was prompt and generous. The request of Lady Franklin was complied with, and steps were to be taken immediately to carry the purpose into execution. Inthisrhupe the subject was Liought u(i ill tiie House ot Commons recently, 011 the other side of the water, and the President and the American government were highly eulogized fur ih^ prompt liberality exhibited towards Lady rrutiklm and her application. Subsequent events, it seems, however, have placed this matter in a melancholy and ridiculous position, and nearly hold up the promptitude oi the American government as ludicrous and absurd. We have been informed by the newspapers that no ships are to he fitted out in compliance with the wish of Lady Franklin, or in accordance with the announcement of the President. Tins course, it seems, Ims been forced on the cabinet by the refusal of the Navy Department to concur with the wishes of ihe President, assigning as a reason tit it no vessel belonging to the American navy is fit for such an expedition, and that there is not sufficient time this year to prepare auy that could encounter such u service. Now, we would like to ask who exercises control over the Navy Department! Is it the Secretary ol the Navy, or the three Navy Commissioners! We understand the Secretary of the Navy is u mere locum Uncus in that establishment, and that Jack Straw might as well have been appointed to that important post, as the distinguished gentleman from tlie ancient State of Viigiuia. The Secretary of the Navy, it seems, is a perfect nonentity in his own position. The whole power of the department uppears to be exercised by three respectable and untiquated naval gentlemen, through whose advice and opinion the naval branch of the government has cost the country, for muny years past, at the rate of six millions of dollars per annum; while the same service could be performed, in u better manner, for four millious ?thus tuving two millions, at the least. Those gentlemen assume all the power of the Navy Department; and, although the President and his cabinet egret d to lend out an expedition to benefit the cause of science, as solicited by Lady Franklin, yet the purpose was voted down and negatived by the triumvirale of the Navy Department, on the ground, too, that there was no vessel fit for such a service! What a ridiculous s?Wtude this matter has placed the American government in before the civilized nations of Europe, snd the scientific nvn of :lie wuild! General Taylor's cabinet have shown themselves to be courageous, during the last five or six months, in removing hundreds of postal inters, dtiv.tiis of collectors, and thousands of petty officers, of all descriptions, in the public service. As they have the powt r,cnn they have the courage to re move those obstacles in the Navy Department who have thrown themselves in the way of a high und noble enterprise iu the cause of science and civilization l "Wak ok the Si h-Tkeasi ky.?The Itoston Atla has commenced a furious war on the Independent Treasury system, which the last administration eft as a legacy to the purty now iu |?ower. Tuere may be some amendments that might be advantageously made to the present financial system of the government; hut if it is intended to sweep the system out of existence, there can be no other purpose in view than the restoration of the old bank ryst< in, which has bean repudiated by the people ul the I'tiited Mates. Annexation oy Canada and Ci ba.?All parties in thia country, the administration and the opposition, including ull the slatetmen, appear to be ct-ming out in tavor of annexing both Csnada and Cuba to this mighty republic. The Washington Union, the organ of the democratic opposition, has the following remarks on the belief that Gen. Taylor and his cabinet are in favor of such a policy:? In conclusion, we will assure there new converts to a great democratic doctriue, that both Cuba an J the liritith soluble*, at the proper tune and iu Iks pr..par manner, will ultimately be annexed to the Am-rlcaa I nlon Hut there great men. urea will be effected by the democratic parly au l a democratic aduiinl?tra'i<<o, and not by the whig* It will however, he >h n at tba prnpt r time wlieu It ran he accomplish. d wtlh honor, aud without violating tbe right a of either i treat dritain or Npatn M hen I anadu and her eieter clonl-a ehall haee n ruied their indepewdenre. and when < uba Khali have d< ne the eama. lh.-o will It be time en >ugh f ir iu srttourly to diecuee and nraily decide en th e. que*, tlona I h< n the democracy will admit them to the great eleterhocd of vnteriran State* The dlinluutlTA r'tte-u er uow at the head of alTalrs. who are beatinq aleut tor a platform <f adtniuietratlre p dicy. ready vrtito jump np'in ihatof th-lr epp .neut rau mate no h.ue with the democracy on ihie qn -etlou rd annexation The democrat to party th. y wdl find, will never c. ntend against ih-m ioi tliie question It go., fir aanexalli.it It e?lahhehetl In epite of the hoetile p pool t Inn of the whig party, both the d'irtrlne and the p. ||ey of annexation. and It will be the party that will admit la due time tutu this glorl iui I nmub uh < anada ..nd < uha father BJnthevv In Uroiiklyn?Over Nrvni 1 noiiiiKiia iKiirii inr M'lrmgv.
