Through the proper departments yen were informed of the departure lor vera Cruz of the Cenerat President, and of the decree of the8tli instant, ka which he ordains who is to sucretxl Itim in the govern ment in case of death or his resigning the power entrust ed to him.

In sucli s state of things, and wishing to avoid the sad evils which would be the ?atnral consequenco of an opposition to the wishes ex pressed by the garrieon and the inhabitants, and having been acknowledged as the General -in Chief, I have deter mined to carry out the provisions ot the first article of the "acts," and accordingly named the junta which, ?omposed of two members from each department, Includ *>g the district, shall elect by an absolute mnjtrity ol votes, the President j>r? tempore of the republic.

The requii ements ot public opinion, w general anxiety, the state of confusion in which the country fin is itself from the ab-once of all government, have caused ras to fcrm the resolution ofjadopting the action of the inhabi tants and garrison of Tnis enlightened capital. In the plim which has been proclaimed, 1 lie necessity baa been acknowledged by convoking the nation, that ft aaay constitute itself, and sufficient securities have been given to the army, the defender and brother of the peo ple. This plan puts an end to discord and resentments, and it will be the salvation of the republic. Fellow Countrymen ?

All of my family arc well to-day, and to morrow 1 shall make ar rangements lo leave for Baltimore or elsewhere. The deaths to day have nearly doubled, and not less tiian ULy huvc been buried. Our acting Mayor has proclaimed martini law, with a view to obtain vehicles to bury the dead, lie., by improssmcnt; and to-day carts, wagons, hearses, an.l every other two and four-wheel conveyance has lieen used for that purpose. Some carry one, some two, some three, a.ud some four bodies at a time. It would be ini|io:.siblo to give you tho faintest idea of tho distress. To-day, women with children in their uruH were running about the streets, crying, "Bury my poor husband:" but it is hard to get the dead buried, and various kiiid.t of vehicles are now rapidly moving past my house conveying the dead to their last resting place. Several offmr old playmates and acquaintances are num bered among the dead to-day: ? Edward Daly and wifo, Tbos. Elear, Ignatius liigjjiiis, Letter M. Boynse, Jas. M. Drunks. Ihos. V. Foreman, Zach.

Poor Margaret is ('.end; her son Thomas is at tho hospital sick with the fever, and Hilly is in the hands of strangers, hut will soon he cared for. Your sister and both of her children aro down with the fever. She will no doubt recover, but the chances of recovery are against the children. The dead from Saturday at 12 o'clock to 1 2 o'clock to-day, forty-eight hours, are nearly on? hundred, and more sttli lemain unbui ted for want of coffins. Yesterday numbers were burled in common rough boxes, and to-day numbers aie pi.trifj ing for want of conveniences of burial. Mr. Burnhain and his wife were taken down with tho fever on Saturday. It. will go hard with Anna. Tho news from every source is so heartrending that 1 have stopped asl iug who is dead. The rapid conveyance of the dead to their last resting place speak volumes, and is easily understood. 1 am still enabled to say all of mine are well, I n no one is safe an hour. p. 8. ? W. H.

CAMPBELL, Treasurer, New York, August 20, 1866. A CARD. -STREET COMMIHSIONER-TO THE EDITOR of the Herald : Dear sir? In your paper ol 29th I observe with great pleasure that Charles Devlin In off-red for Street Commissioner. A mora fit or better nomination could not bo made In the whole democratic body; having known and been associated with Mr. Devlin In some ol' the hardest struggles tor the successful triumph of the genuine uusophtstlc ited princt ples of JeO'eriiouian and Jacksonlau democracy, and never tor a moment bare I known blm swerve or deviate from ths straight forward, uneompromlslng and fearless advocacy of these pure national democratic principles wbleh have elevated our ooun'ry to her present enviable pos Hon. My a^attaln tance with Mr. D. has been Intimate and oi' long standing; It was not acquired yesterday ; It reaches as far back as UfjW, some twenty -live years mho, snd I feel pleasure in saying 'Bat that Inilmacy has never Ween Interrupted by a dlffjreme of opinion or action on political principle, nor otherwise; and no nomina tion could secure to the ticket a lurxer lnllu<-tioe nor bo a surer guarantee to the public for the faithful discharge of the duties, of so Important an oHlce; his honesty of purpose, his sterling Integrity, his Industry, sobriety, snd lnu itjcn ? s, together with his long and praHical experience In business, l<irth pub 11: and private, ail concur to po.nt hUu out aa the most judicious selec tion that could be mude by the democracy ol tin; fourth ward, i r Indeed of any oilier. As the coming election Is likely to be i ne of more than ordinary Importance,. both to this city and to (be State, It behovoe* the friends of true and national liberty lo be cautious In -electing for ofline men of lived and undoubt ed Integrity ; there are too many vital lnMroataat stake now i equlrlng the exerrlMe of sound and matured judgmeut, of liberal and enlightened Ktatesinansliip, men superior to the I Kins of the day; this Is not the time In send novices, bigots, and clerical fanatics, lo represent the people In the councils of the State? men bending beneath the welitht of prejudice, from whom just and Impartial laws are expecte-l? the thing Is ab surd. What the people want is tnonof enlarged inkiest, efprac ileal eiperlence, superior to the narrow prejti li :e* of the day r and just such u mini Is C. Devlin, a man who lias dona more to Impede and resist the torrent of vice and Uum uallty, than all the men In the Fourth ward. Mr. D., does not seek office for mercenary or seltisb purposes, having always refused when applied to; ever ready to assist others by every means in bis power, by pcr?i>nal Influence, nnd otherwise, lor the last twen ty years, ne now comes before the democracy and his fellow citizens with clean liauds, pure and honest Intentions, relying on the support of a (.-onerous and enlightened public, confident they will give lo honest merit that support which has been too often given to those of doubtful Integrity. b.NE WHO KNOWS.
