—During the last two weeks the cholera epidemic in France has been rapidly subsiding, the total deaths from that disease upon Oct. 7 in the whole country only reaching eight.
From Italy we have the report under date of Oct. 12 of only 239 fresh cases and 137 deaths in all the infected districts, and of these 115 fresh cases and 31 deaths occurred at Naples.
