Emigration from Liverpool and Birkenhead.—The number of emigrants who took tbeir departure for America and Australia in ships which sailed from these ports during the past month was 5134—a less number than has been known since February 1847. The Government vessels for Australia which sailed from the Birkenhead depot during tbe week were the Derry   Castle, on Monday, with 360 passengers, including 230 single women, principally Irish, and the Sea, on Thurs- day, with 310 souls on board. The Emperor will sail thence on Wednesday, the John Fielden the week   after, and four or five others in the succeeding week.

A small sciew steam ship, n<*mcil the Ann, left Southampton on Satuiday week for Sydney, Now South Wales, bhe is sent out as a privato icntuio by a few persons, and is to bo sold either at Port Phillip or Sydney. The Ann is about 240 tons .register, piopclled by a screw, and ber engines aio in a complete state. Tbo screw bas, however, been taken off, and the funnel unshipped, and the vessel proceeds to her destination entirely undei cain as, to avoid the expenso ot fuel, and likewise to give stowage room for a considerable quantity of goods of various kind«, including brandy, gin, rum, Minc, and other things sent out also for sale in Australia by the ownci s . of the t essel. The Ann takes out a ship-letter mail,

but no passengers. Her passago will piobably not occupy less titan throe to tour months. It is antici- pated this little «teainor will sell well in Austiuli.i, as she is suitable, both from her small tonnago and hoi se fiower, to trade on the coast or to nm as a passenger .craft beti* een the soi eral ports.-Home News, 10th

The departures from» the port of London for the Australian colonies during the past week wero again mimerons.

Thoir total capacity was consequently 3281 tons. Large shipments continue to be made of imumfnctmed goods, wine, beer, &c, -but thc4atc high quotations for freight are not in all /.ases supported.-Times, 13-th Februaiy.

Seamen'* Wages to Australia.-A yacht caHcd tlr-c Corsair is now in the Southampton Dock preparing to go out to Australia. She is about 80 tons burden. Her erew will consist of about eight or ten men. They will got £3 a month fur taking her out, and as .the yacht does not return, they expect to get £80 or £100 for the run home, in consequence of the scaicity of bands in Australia for homeward-bound ships, it is stated that there is nearly 1000 sail of merchant nicn at the various Australian portb home--, ard bound, but wanting bands.-Daily News.
