DEPARTURE OF EMIGRANTS. An interesting sight was witnessed at the St. Pancras Terminus of the Midland Railway in London, on Monday evening. At six o'clock, 312 emigrants, composed solely of married men, their wives, and families, assembled on the platform prior to the depar- ture of a special" for Liverpool, at 7.30. This batch of emigrants was sent out by the East London Family Emigration Society, which is managed chiefly by a committee of ladies, the Hon. Mrs. Hobart taking a leading part in the direction, and supported solely by voluntary contributions. On the platform were several of the committee and friends of the society, amongst whom were Lord Lawrence, late Governor General of India, anu Lady Lawrence, the Hon. A. Kinnaird, M.P., the Hon. Elizabeth Waldegrave, Lady Burrell, the Hon. F. and Miss Hobart, General C. Sluart, Admiral Fishjvvurne, Rev. T. Richardson, vicar of St. Matthews, St GeororeVin-the-East, Miss Baxter, Mr. Megsy Clive, Mr. T. B. Smithies, &c. In the party of 312 almost every class of skilled and unskilled workmen was represented, and every family had either been reduced to the utmost destitution, had been a recipient ef the rates, or was on the high road to be one. Last year the society sent out 1.000 emigrants to Ontario, and without exception they have done well. Destitution is the first claim upon the bene- volence of the committee, but it must be accompanied by pood character. The entire cost of transit from London to Ontario is paid by the society two new suits of clothes have been given to each emigrant, and ten shillings each will be handed theiu on arriving at their destination, where they will be met by the Canadian agent, who will register the names and trades of the men. At half-past six the emigrants were served with tea in one of the waiting rooms, the ladies of the coin- mit^ee, being most attentive to them. A hymn was sung and prayer offered after tea, and then afew words of encouragement w^-re addressed by Admiral Fisbbourne and Mr. Richardson to the poor people who were all in hgh spirits. At half-past saven the "soecial" left for Liverpool. The Rev. T. Richardson and some ladies of the committee accompanied 1 hep <rty of emigrants.
