We learn from a reliable private source, that the small pox is raging with violence in Rockmart, and assuming a much more virulent character.  Many new cases are reported, some of them just alive, while others are said to be convalescing.  Mr. Daniel Youngblood, well known to many of our citizens, died on the 24th.  There are about thirty cases in all.  From a letter to the Atlanta Herald we extract the following, which will give our reader a pretty fair idea of the condition of things there:

The only thing of which we may truly be alarmed, is the fact of a large proportion of our population being day laborers, who are now, many of them, living on bread, coming to want and dependence.  Our quarantine regulations in town are strict.  No one is allowed communication with us, but if the infectious disease continues we shall be compelled to allow those without means to leave, as the town is not able to feed them.
