From India

--Ravages of the Cholera.--Most distressing advices from India, via of the overland mail to London, have been received. That terrible scourge, the Asiatic cholera, had again broken out and carried off a large number of its victims. In one place sixteen were attacked in the morning, and of that number only one was alive in the evening of the same day. The physicians account for the present appearance of the cholera in the failure of the summer crops, having been cut off by the heavy rains, and the famine which had prevailed for some months. The rains came earlier than usual, and they were so long and so heavy as to cause a deluge which overflowed the entire country, and caused the loss of many lives and a vast amount of property.
