As a precaution that no communication should take place from the shore the George street pier was barricaded off, under the charge of the police and Customs watchman. The patient, a child in the steerage, having been conveyed to the Quarantine Island, and the bedding destroyed, hospital, etc., fumigated yesterday evening, the vessel was admitted to pratique this morning, and commenced at once to discharge her cargo into the railway trucks.
