Burlington, July 5, 1849.
The Fourth -- Owing to the fear of excess as an introduction to
the Cholera, our citizens made very little public demonstration of patriotism
yesterday. We had an invitation to attend the South Burlington Sunday
School celebration at 8 o'clock in the morning, but owing to our business
engagements, we could not attend. However, we understand that the
celebration went off admirably. The Declaration was read, and interesting
speeches were made by Messrs. E.W. Gray, Charles Hendrie and H.B. Ware.
About 10 o'clock the Cadets of Temperance, preceded by the Burlington Temperance
Brass Band, came out of their Hall and marched to the Methodist Church, where
two of their members -- Masters Littleton and Houseworth -- made interesting
addresses. After marching back to the Hall in the same order, they
Keokuk -- The Cholera is very bad in Keokuk. It is reported that ten persons died there on Sunday last. This must be a mistake. We have a letter from there dated Monday. It says that there were eight cases on the day previous, and that by using the sulphur remedy only two of these died, and they under Thompsonian treatment. The sulphur, the letter states, was first used on a Mr. Jones, who was in a collapsed state. By giving him a pill of 4 grains sulphur and one of Charcoal every 15 minutes for two hours, he recovered.
