—The chances of controlling the epidemic within the cities of Toulon and Marseilles are by no means as hopeful as they were a week ago. The number of cases has steadily increased in those cities, and the disease is appearing at other points. Quoting from the dispatches of this morning, July 8, we find that night before last there were sixteen fatal cases in Marseilles, and during yesterday up to five o'clock there were twelve.
At Toulon during the same night there were nine deaths, and during yesterday there were seven.
Two cases were reported yesterday at Nice. Eighteen hundred persons left Marseilles yesterday.
An English steamer from Marseilles was signalled off Lisbon July 6, having two cases of cholera on board.
Two refugees from Toulon were found at Saluzzo the same day, victims of cholera.
Dr. Koch, of the German Cholera Commission, is busy at Toulon making examinations of cholera patients.
