Cholera in Pendleton.

A private letter from a gentleman residing in Pendleton county, Ky., under date of the 26th inst., gives the following account of the prevalence of disease in its most malignant form in a portion of that county: The cholera is prevailing to an alarming extent on Grassy Creek, in Pendleton county, 5 miles from my house, in a neighborhood wherein a circle drawn with a diameter of two miles or less, there have already been 58 deaths. Some families have nearly all died. They got a physician from Kenton county on Thursday last, who has saved a few cases.  Before he came, every case terminated fatally.
