The cholera and Rotten wheat.

--Several physicians of our city have expressed themselves, in the most decided terms, in favor of the proposition to keep back the damaged wheat now lying at Chicago. They all concur in the opinion that there is no such prolific cause of cholera as foul grain, and if cholera is not prevailing, it must produce other diseases scarcely less fatal. One physician who lived in Buffalo years ago, when the cholera prevailed, stated that the disease was worse among the men employed about the grain elevators and ships.--Rochester Union.
