BRAZIL, Ind., Geb. 24. – Smallpox has broken out in a new locality in Clay county. Last night the young son of Elijah Latta, living at Staunton, four miles west of Brazil, became violently ill, and the attending physician has pronounced it a case of genuine smallpox of a more severe type than that prevailing at Clay City. The town has been quarantined and the excitement is intense.
