      SHIP NEWS.
      'The barque Earl Grey, which arrived on
      Thursday last from Plymouth, 9th March,
      brings 256 immigrants in good health and
      sound constitution to our shores. Only
      one adult died upon the passage, of con-
      sumption, the seed of which had taken root
      too deeply in the constitution of the patient
      previously to leaving England, to encourage
      any hopes of recovery; eleven infants also
      died.

      Immigrants.— The Immigrants who arrived
      by the Earl Grey on Thursday last, are 250 in
      number, and are all, happily, in a very healthy
      condition. They appear to be a well selected
      and useful class of persons, and those who are
      in want of servants or laborers would do well
      to proceed on board the vessel without delay,
      or they will be forestalled in the demand ;
      many of the new arrivals having already been
      engaged upon liberal terms.
