EMIGRATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE PRINCIPALITY. SIR,—The following communication may not be uninteresting to those of your numerous readers who have read in last week's PRINCIPALITY Mr. Every's letter addressed to the woncing-men of Monmouthshire and the adjoining counties on Emigration to South Africa." Mr. Price, of Abersjchan, having been re- quested by some workmen in his neighbourhood to write to Mr. Lodwidge of Hereford, to ascertain whether they could obtain a free passage to the Cape of Good Hope, has received from that gentleman the following reply :— Hereford, June 26th, 1848. REVEREND SIRj- Your letter of the 19th came to hand on the 24th instant, and iu reply I beg leave to state, that my recent instructions from Government forbid me to hold out any prospect of a free passage to the Cape of Good Hope, for some time to come. Mr. Every's letter in the Graham's Town Journal, so liberally supplied throughout the Principality, has drawn, the tide of Emigration towards that colony. I do not believe that he has overcoloured the advantages to be arrived at there; but under present circumstances how are they to be got at? Mr. Every's suggestions of forming clubs to raise the means for paying for the passage is the only channel I can point out. This done, I will render to any and every one my best services in procuring for them a conveyance on very moderate terms. But though this channel of free emigration is suspended, the Government offer to all per. sons eligible in all respects another to the Sydney District of New South Wales. Now the parties most eligible are young married couples as agriculturists, country blacksmiths, and also female domestic and town servants but, however, to give you a more general idea of the Government views on this head, I hand you inclosed, 'I he Regulations." I shall feel obliged by your giving the whole of my address as much publicity as possible. I remain, reverend sir, yours obediently, JAMES LODWIDGE, Agent to Her Majesty's Commissioners. Rev. Stephen Price, Abersychan.
