Having become acquainted generally with the nature of the Bill

for promoting Emigration, which it is understood that his Ma- jesty's Government intend to submit to Parliament, we were about to lay before our readers some account of the measure in question, when it occurred to us that this course would be handy fair to- wards the framers of the bill. Jr the measure now in contempla- tion should ever be hrought before Parliament, our duty will be to express th2 most unqualified disapprobation of it—to expose its numerous defects—indeed, to show its inefficiency, and, what is more, its impracticability ; but we have .reason to hoe that the subject will be reconsidered, or rather we would say, considered for the first time, by the Government. `On this account, we abstain for the present. When the proper tin ,e comes, we shall speak our opinion fully, without fear or affection,-without any bias of interest or vanity, and with a single desire to combat error and maintain the truth. It were greatly to be desired that all the promoters of Emigration could say as much.
