The authorities have already taken steps to clean and purify every part of the ity, that all such causes as have fed the disease may bo immediately removed. The authorities have appropriated 1-17 Anthony street to be used as a hospital, a vacant house. A mob assembled and undertook to resist, but the Chief of Police dispatched a force to drive off the crowd, clean out the house, and transport the sick, which steps are now taking. A child of one of those that died on Monday has been taken there already. Drs. Beck, Smith, and others bave just been up to examine the caso, which was in a state of collapso.
