Our Paper.
A press of job work, which could not be de
layed beyond Monday last, and to complete
wllich required the moat industrious application
of ell hands, is our apology for issuing but u
half oheet thia week. This also accounts for
the small amount of reading matter which we
give: Our hurry is now over, and we shall
hereafter he able to go on as usual.
Exciting News,

destructive flee in St. Louis, threatened inunda

&c., to which we invite attention. Al
though we have not had time to give our read
ers much news hi this raper, what we do give
is truly of an exciting character.

Appointments by the Postmaster
Psrsa C. Sworn's, has been appointed Post
master at this place, in the place of F. B. WAL
LACH. Although several other very worthy and
deserving gentlemen were also applicants for
this office, we hazard nothing in saying that the
appointment is a good one, and will give very satisfaction to the citizens.
Of the retiring Postmaster, Mr. WALLACE,
it is but justice to say, he was an accommoda
ting and faithful public officer. Since our con

The Cholera.
This alarming disease is still raging in the

have commenced its ravages in New York.

New York Riot.
This disgraceful affair, owing to the vigilance,
and praiseworthy determination of the authori
tis, was quelled witi,out any further loss of life
than stated in our last. Mobs should always
be dealt with in the most summary manner.
Cr" T. T. Woaru, Esq., editor of the Leb

Lebanon. We know of none more worthy than
our friend of the Courier.
Recent Appointments
The appointments lately made in Philadelphia
are spoken of by the Evening Bulletin, a neutral
paper, as excellent and altogether fit to be made.
" The selection of Mr. Lewis" (as Collector)
says the Bulletin, " is an eminently wise one."
His appointment is declared to be one "directly
complimentary to the mercantile interest and to
Philadelphia," and will," the Bulletin adds,

and the water defies all efforts to stop its pro

the Second Municipality to the new canal. The
inhabitants were escaping in boats. The whole
of the Fauburg St. Mary is partially inundated.
Nothing can equal the consternation visible
among the inhabitants in the leading streets in
that quarter. In Tahonpitoulas, Magazine, and
Camp streets, the inhabitants arc moving off in
a body, on with a few exceptions, scarcely at
tempting to save their property.
The whole scene is represented as being aw
ful and sublime in the extreme. The roar of the
waters can be heard for miles. In the first and

fearing that - the whole city will be inundated.

NEW YORK, May la
Three more new cases of dhole - ra wore l
reported this morning, causing much ex- i
citement in the neighborhood where they
occurred, and threats were made to burn
the houses in which the malady is said
to be located unless the sick are remov
ed. The police are in attendance to
prevent mischief. The inhabitants are
sprinkling lime in the streets to prevent
the spreading of the contagion.
The sanitary committee, at n meeting
held this afternoon, pronounce the dis

merely cases of diarrhcca aggravated by
the neglect and exposure of those at-

The sinking of the steamer Empire, of
Troy, by collision with the schooner No

has caused much sensation. The steam

save three. The steamer sunk imme
diately to the hurricane deck, and alarge
number of ladies in the cabin could only
be got out by holes cut in the deck.—
The scene in the cabin was of the most
frightful character, mothers were calling
for their children, and wives for their
husbands. Whilt cutting through the
decks, a lady was accidentally killed by
a blow with an axe.
