BUFFALO - The cholera is still prevailing in this city. The whole number of cases is 41 and deaths 14. Two of the latter, were colored persons. The disease is evidently on the increase; and all business is at a standstill.

Among the Indians on the reservation, the number of deaths has been 9. They have in most cases treated the disease in their own way, and their confidence in the remedy we mentioned last week, has increased - they first place on the stomach and limbs, quantities of the May weed steeped in hot water - then wrap the patient in blankets - make a strong tea of smart weed and the bark called johekoh combined. Of this they administer large draughts until the stomach is relieved and a profuse perspiration breaks forth. Numbers have thus been relieved after violent vomiting and spasms had come on. - Buffalo Republican
