THE PUBLIC lIEALTH IN LONDON.—2,147 births and 1,070 deaths were registered in the metropolis last week. Glancing over the mortality returns, we find that the fatal cases of smallpox and diarrhoea shewed an in- crease, while those of most of the other zymotic diseases had declined. The deaths referred to diarrhoea, which in the two previous weeks had been 16 and 25, further rose, last week to 37, which, however, were no less than 57 below the corrected average number in the corresponding week of the last ten years; 28 were of infants under one year of age. Two deaths of infants last week were certified from simple cholera. The fatal cases of small-pox, which in the two previous weeks had been* 37 and 26, rose again last week to 43, including no less than 26 which were returned as un- vaccinated. ENORMOUS INCREASE IN THE EMIGRATION FROM LIVERPOOL.—The Government emigration officials at Liverpool have just completed their usual quarterly and half-yearly returns of the emigration from the Mersey, and the returns shew that notwithstanding the great tide of emigration from several of the continental ports, Ireland, and Scotland, direct to the United States, tho exodus from Liverpool, instead of suffering any diminution, continues to rapidly increase, as the following analysis of the returns will shew. During the quarter ending June 30 there sailed under the Actto the United States 110 ships, with 3,392 cabin and 63,595 steerage passengers; to Canada there were 19 ships, with 533 enbin au (1 9,084 steerage passengers to Nova Scotia there were 200 cabin and 271 steerage passengers, but these were conveyed in steamers going to Canada; and to South America there were three ships, with 180 cabin and 187 steerage passengers; making a total" under the Act" of 132 ships. 4,305 cabin, and 73,137 steerage passen- gers, of whom 31,840 were English, 1,171 Scotch, 13,758 Irish, and 30,673 foreigners. The total for the quarter of 79,561 passengers shews an increase of 9,380 over the same quarter of last year, and an increase, when compared with the corresponding half-year of 1871, of 17,166 pas-" s.2;gers.
