Prevention of the Cholera. - Chlorine, placed in different parts of the house in shallow vessels, is recommended as an effectual preventive of Cholera; and as most persons may perhaps be ignorant of the process of preparing the chlorine, we subjoin the following recipe:

To make Chorine. - Take half a gill of red lead and one gill of salt; next stir them half a minute; pour two-thirds of a wine glass of sulphuric acid; let the cork be loose, so that the air can escape, for one minute; then cork it tight; put it in cold water, and shake it under the water once a minute for fifteen minutes; let it settle. The liquid is of a greenish color, and is fit for use.
