UNSUCCESSFUL EMIGRANTS IN CANADA - Our correspondent was shown on Saturday
a letter received by a tradesman at Cleator Moor, from a late resident, who, at the time the
letter was written was a Montreal, Canada. The writer wishes that some measures would be
adopted by the Government in England to - at least for the present - prevent emigration
being carried on on so extensive a scales as is now the case. "Many hundreds, nay thousands,
are here," he says, "unable to find employment. They are not living-starving is the proper
word. The parties to whom such a state of things is attributable are the emigration agents
at home, who have a commission of so much per head on all emigrants sent out by them ; the
result is that a class of emigrants are arriving , who, in many ways, are not suitable."
The writer adds "Stay where your are; don't come out here; and get this inserted in some
of the local papers."
