Protests seem to hare no effect upon the sapient health authorities in Perth. Every mail steamer is placed in quarantine because Aden baß been called at within 21 days. Now it is well-known that smallpox, the disease against which the precautions are taken, develops within fourteen days and that there is little chance of the disease being introduced provided that it has not appeared on board before the steamer's arrival at Albany. There is nothing rational in the regulation for there is no apparent danger. We are quite satined that if Perth were not in snch a dreadful condition, the Health Authorities would not be so stringent, in their regulations. There is a dread, however, of any other disease attacking the capital, for if small pox ever got a hoi i there it would deci mate the people. In the ineantuné Albany, which is in a healthy condi...
