'ENGLISH EMIGRANTS.  The American press speak of the great increase of immigration to that country from  Great Britain we evidenced by the late official  returns received at the Bureau of Statistics  for ih'o quarter ending June 30th, 1871. The  ���������olal numbed* of immigrants' arrived at the  port of New York during this time was 107.-  : 114, and of this number no less than 22.857.  Tvere from the island ol. Great Britain. This  n umber Is' ab out the same as fro m Irel an d,  an cl h ear 1 y th ree-fon rib s of the g reat G e rm a n  vvinflux. [ The Americans;- are. not inclined tp:  7 imputethis important increase to any growing  p ressu re of - u n fa vo r ab 1 e co n di ti o ns at ho me,  as they readily, admit that the prospects .-'-of  thellab 6 r i rig cl ass there were ne v er more encouraging. Tbey consider it an indication  that o I & prejudices, against the United States  aredisappearing, arid a better knowledge of  the country and its opportunities is being circulated. And of course ihe^ find good:reasons  to trace this as the reswft of tbe negotiation  of the great treaty of amity which has lately  . been concluded between the United States  aud Great Britain.  While on the subject we desire to refer to  the matter as connected with our own Dominion.   We have conversed with a gentleman who has just returned from an extensive  trip through England, and from him we learn  a confirmation of what has been so frequently,  related, and which, in our opinion, reflects  unfavorably upon the emigration policy of  our Government.   This gentleman assures us  that  everywhere he found tbe most unaccountable* ignorance prevailing  ns to  the  nature of this country and the social condition.  of the people.   Many would ask him whether  -the English language was used by the masses,  and whether they were civUiasad enough to  make life secure in their midst.  They had no  other idea but that Canada was a howling  ���������Wilderness, with a -scattared population- of.  Indians and half-breeds, and perhaps an occasional white man squatted as a speculator.  2'iiey could talkglibly enough about tiic^rcat  inducements to emigrants in the United States,  but knew little or nothing of what our Do-.  minion offered.  Why is this? Cannot some scheme be  adopted for disseminating information among  the English peasantry which will answer the  purpose we desire? Thus far our agents and  their directors have accomplished but little,  and among the great mass of English laborers to-day Canada, with her almost inexhaustible resources, is comparatively unknown.���������  [Canadian paper. v>  THE NEW IRISH LEADER���������ISAAC BUTT,  THE COMING DANIEL Q'CONNELL.  Justin McCarthy writes to. the New York  Mail of. the man who is now distinguishing  himself as the great advocate in Great Britain  of the Fenian prisoners and the leader of the  Irish liberals:  ^ : Long years ago, when most of us were  Iboys, Butt distinguished himself as an opponent of 'O'Cbnnell's.   He was a professor of  political economy and a lawyer.   Then he  > suddenly flashed into a.geiuine renown as  the, defender of Thomas Francis Meagher, in  th% Irish State trials of twenty-three years  a^o^Theh. and;since.then,I beard bim often,  and IUhink, allowing for all defects arising  from^an impulsive and irregular nature, an  exuberant-physique, be was one of the most  eloquent and persuasive speakers I bave ever  heardr.. He,, had a magnificent voice, none  this7'wane for its rich depth of sonorous Irish  accent, and the flashing eyes that reminded  you of the-descriptions of Robert Brims.  He  was anything but a handsome man ;  bis face  looked like that of a negro���������blanched;   but  his eyes, his* voice and his powerful frame  lent bim dignity and something like grandeur.   I think in his best days he must have  somewhat resembled Mirabeau,   He was at  tbis time, although he defended the Irish prisoners, a Tory and a Protectionist.   He was  taken up by tbe English Protectionists and  became a pet orator at their great meetings.  Through this interest he entered the House of  Commons as the representative of an English  Tory  borbugby    Gradually  he "renounced  Toryism and������ became a Liberal;   But meanwhile be. was falling fast) intovvruin^  He lost  his practice at the bar, because no one could  trust liim to keep his engagements.  Tie became renowned in London as a gambler, a  spendthrift, a scapegrace of. every kind.   I  sh ri nk from say i ng to wh at dep th s of d egr a-  dation sank this richly giited, generous man.  At last he d isap p ear ed fro m Par 1 i am en t and  from society*   He was past the prime of life,  and every one regarded him as gone forever.  But after some years he turned up again, resumed the practice of his profession in Dublin, and was said to have put aside wholly  the error���������not of youth, but of well matured  years.   He became the most conspicuous advocate of the Fenian prisoners, and, unlike  most very eloquent pleaders, Butt is a profound and wily lawyer, as well as a persua-  si ve, powerful orator. He soon recovered his  forfeited popularity, and has, I believe, well  ;nigh regained his place in society, if he goes  into Parliament again, and becomes the leader  of the .Irish Nationalist party there, he will  lend to that party a force and a subtlety  which it now badly wants.   Setting aside  Gladstone and John Bright, of course, I know  b f n o ra an am on g the Engl ish Li b er al s to be  compared for eloquence and capacity with  big. fervid Isaac Butt.   If he really does set  out in a new career, every one will wish him  well.   The man never. I think, had an enemy.  even.araohg the creditors whom he neglected  and the "cabmen whose fares he sometimes  would not pay.   After all, he still has time to  make a name, for, although he was a distinguished man five-and-tbirty years ago, he is  not sixty years old now.   He began life soon  and Iived many lives.. Perhaps he will find  his real career now at last  MISCELLANEOUS;  To the Electors of Cariboo  * and Lillooet.   :>  Gentlemen,  ��������� .

TBLKGiUPHrc.���������rt be telegraph line is so ut-  t Tly disorganized that we can get fno news  reports. The line Is always down somewhere,  and by the time It gets fixed at-one,place  down it goes in another. A few messages get  through eocasionally. but taking it all in all  the whole affair is a wretched humbug. Why  doe? not the Canadian Government have it  put in OTder at once? It would then not only  be of service to the community; but a considerable source of revenue, while in fUvpresent  condition ii roust as a matter of con rso entail  a constant heavy expense, besides being practically nothing but a mockery. We have just  learned by mail that Mr R. B.

He  read it, turned pale, and quitted the house,  called a cab, drove to the Charing Cross sta-  tion, a n d wen t to.
