All the dead were taken to Swinburne island and cremated It i* also ascertained that six eksea of the disease had beefi seci to Swinburno island today. The cab : n pas>engers of the steamer Kormauia have been transferred to Holl'man island. The panic amou^ ihera today \7as de«» cribed by eje witneseeB aa something frightiut. They cried out against being confined in the DC-HI ship *nd thu ladies on board ibe vessel were in a state of groatent terror. Their fear was relieved to a Hofiman island. The commissioners describe- the terror prevailing among the passengers us ol a heart rending character. Tbero was some doubt among the cabin passengers as to the presence of the dread disease aboard the steamer, but the deaths and now cases which occurred today have brought terror to the bravest, and all now fully recognised that the grim spectre cholera is really in their midst. The maiis from th«Normania were brought to the postofficeB and distributed, and that lor inland pointa. • sent on its way, The Italian inan-ofiiwarCoriglians| which brught here the satatue of Christopher Columbug, presented by the Italian government to the people of the United States, arriv* «d at quarantine this afternoon.
