During the past week no fewer than 1350 deaths were

registered in the Metropolis. By the calculated average it might fairly have been expected that 1230 would die : there is therefore an excess of 120 over the estimated amount, and an excess of 88 over the number of the preceding week-1262. The cholera` has now subsided, although it has not ceased —last week there were seven deaths from cholera.
