The Colonial Land and Emigration Commissioners have issued tenders .for

emigration-depOts at London, Plymouth, and Liverpool ; the two for- mer to contain sleeping accommodation for 300 each, the last for 600. Thus, it would seem, the Commissioners are preparing obstinately to ad- here, for another twelvemonth, to the system which drags emigrants to a --few centres ; instead of distributing over the country a proper machinery of inspection, and seeking both emigrants and shipping in the vessels and ports to which they belong.

An announcement in the "Naval Intelligence" of the daily papers -appears to indicate, somewhere, a spirit less bound by routine : "Her Majesty's ship Hercules, 72, is ordered to be docked for the purpose of being fitted for the conveyance of emigrants to Australia."
