The Cholera, which rages in Brussels, cutting off nearly fifty
vic- tims a day, has interposed to check the rejoicing which the people would otherwise have prolonged on occasiOn of the King's marnage. That event, which occupied so many tongues while in anticipation, Is quietly sunk, now that it is accomplished, into the rank of ordinary and unremembered occurrences. The Cholera seems to bare been equally hostile to politics as to merrymaking. The usual preface of all communications from LEOPOLD'S capital is "there is no news ;" and indeed, if news were a rare article in Solomon's time, it is hardly to be expected that the market should be filled with them in ours. The Ambassador Extraordinary, who had been despatched to Vienna, to announce the royal nuptials, was formally received on the 14th August. ' An answer to fluoPoLn's letter has been returned from the hand of the Em- peror. This condescension is dwelt on with much satisfaction by the Brussels courtiers. Arrangements are making for the des- patch of plenipotentiaries to all the courts where it is deemed de- sirable that Belgium should be represented—a little more expense, and a little more patronage. CHARLES VIL AIN Quierottzr goes to Rome; whose master, as the Queen is Catholic, claims a fifty per cent. interest in the welfare of the royal house. The Conference is at a stand still. If any more protocols have been agreed to, they have not been allowed to see the light.
M. THORN still remains a prisoner; but as the cholera has "broken out in Luxembourg Castle, he is allowed the indulgence of a maison de sante. It seems that the Government of Belgium cannot give up the persons seized as hostages for M. THORN'S safety, until they be tried by the Belgic laws; and so M. THORN must remain until the trial is over. It will take place on the 3d; by which time the Dutch will be ready with another argument for delay. The evacuation of Antwerp is not just yet deter- mined on.
From Holland, the only fact deserving of notice is the abolition of quarantine at Amsterdam, in consequence of the prevalence of cholera there. Foreign ships and crews are, however, to be care- fully inspected—to see, we suppose, if they have any other disease concealed in their holds or pockets. As quarantine has in not one solitary instance operated as a preventive of cholera, it is passing strange to find it still persisted in.
