FROM ICELAND TO CANADA. Another large batch of emigrants is shortly ex- pected in this country from Iceland, on their way to Winnipeg. This Icelander emigration to Canada is very curious thing, says the Manchester Guardian. Since the stoppage of live stock exports to che United Kingdom the Icelanders have been hardly put to it to make a living. They used to send their lean sheep to the North of England and to Scotland, where the animals were put out to fatten and then sold. Now this has stopped the Icelanders have only fishing to fall back upon as a means of livelihood, which is not much for a population of 80,000 souls. They are, therefore, emigrating to Canada.
