Sick List

Small Pox.---We regret to learn that this terrible disease is spreading in the Eastern part of our county. Several cases have appeared in Marshall and vacinity, and over 50 cases, though we hope this is an exaggeration. Thus far, we have heard of but five deaths from this disease, those of Lieut. Davis, of Rainsboro, Mr. Newby and two of his children, and Mrs. Jarvis, at New Boston. Mrs. Newby and another of her children were also very sick a few days since, and their recovery was considered doubtful. No new case has appeared in Camp Mitchell, and the one heretofore reported is rapidly recovering.

The Measles are prevailing to some extent in Camp Mitchell, and there are a few cases in Camp Crittenden, but all yield readily to treatment. The disease has also "broken out" among the children of the town, but without any fatal results thus far.
