It is to be hoped that so^ e system will be adopted in embarking these people wliloh will ensure classilication and Mouer aiii anii a-.recriou W t'n t ;ey reach these shores, and that the Dominion Parliament, whose duty it is to deal with this matter, will perfect such arrangements M will prevent these people from being a burden instead of a bi«ssiug to oil" community on arrival here. During the pa.st two J vars this city has been sorely tritd by the frequent arrival <f large numbtrs of these poor people without any apparent means with which to pro- ceeii further, aud frequently (alluding to continental emigrants) without the power of expiessing or under- standing one word of any language spoken in this country.
