The small-pox among the negroes in Washington city.

--Sergeant Johnson reports that the small-pox is spreading very rapidly among the colored people near the northern boundary, and that their conduct is calculated to spread it through the city. Colored men and women who are literally covered with pustules are seen walking about the streets and mingling with others. This morning he had to prevent two from getting in the cars who were in that condition.--Star.
