The America, ship, belonging to the Black Ball line of packets, arrived, as elsewhere reported, yesterday from Liverpool, after a passage of ninety-five days. She brings in all two hundred and ninety-two immigrants, principally Germans, classed as follows:-125 adult males, 75 adult females, 51 male and 41 male children, under fourteen years of age. There were nineteen deaths during the voyage. Fifteen children and two male adults died of measles, the epidemic having broken out shortly after leaving the Mersey. There was also one death from fever, and an apprentice fell overboard from the main yard-arm and was drowned. The adult male emigrants are chiefly mechanics, and the emi- grants, as a body, appear to be remarkably healthy, and in high spirits. They all speak in very warm terms of the kindnesses and attentions

they have experienced at the hands of their cap   tain and the surgeon-superintendent. The ship is said to be perfectly free from disease, and is in a high state of discipline, and remarkably clean. Great attention appears to have been given to the arrangements of thorough ventilation. On the whole the ship's passage has been a most unfavourable one, she having had to contend with a considerable deal of rough and contrary winds. Hence, the America goes to Bombay.

The Fortune, ship, of 600 tons, and belonging 'to Messrs. James Baines and Co , was to leave Liverpool for this port, with one hundred and fifty Welsh families, on the 5th of May. These ?immigrants will arriva under the bounty regula- tions, having been selected by n friend of Mr. Perkins's of this tonn. The Fortune will also .bring some other casual immigrants.
