He resides with fourteen other persons in a house at Surrey Hill. The House has been quarantined by the police, and the neighbors are leaving the locality. Another European has been attacked with small-pox. The sufferer resides in Cumberland street, some little distance from the scene of the first outbreak at the residence of On Chong in George street. The alarm throughout the neighborhood and city generally is increasing.
