Cholera- This disease broke out in the family of Mr. William Crosley, 4 miles east of this place, and on Monday night Mr. Crossly died 24 hours after the attack. On Tuesday night his wife and Abner Stites, living in the same house, both died; and Mr. Crosley’s mother, and a near neighbor are now lying very bad. The disease is supposed to have been communicated by a daughter of Mr. Crossly residing at Cincinnati; who was taken with it while on a recent visit to her father’s. She has since partially recovered.
