      An early dawn on Thursday morning this fine barque, with 250 emigrants on board, made her appearance in the Gulf, and was so soon abreast of the Flagstaff, that the mails were in town before the usual time of opening the I^pst-office. We are happy to learn that the few casualties on the passage were as usual among the young children, and the deaths, as often heretofore, were counterbalanced by the number cf births on board. A seaman, who was washed overboard in a gale of wind, was the only adult lost during the voyage. The emigrants are chiefly from Huntingdon shire, Wiltshire, Devon, and Cornwall; and we have no doubt they will prove a most useful selection of industrious servants. Their names and other particulars will be found duly re corded in our arrival column. The David Malcolm having taken her final departure from Plymouth on the 21st December, the voyage has been accomplished in ninety-three days. As another emigrant ship was to be de spatched in January, our fears of any suspension of emigration may he given to the winds, so long as we have a full exchequer, or the means of replenishing it by productive land sales. We haye been assured that the disastrous failures in England have at length been suc ceeded by some return of commercial confi dence anil brighter prospects ; and that the effects of disaster are not likely to prejudice this colony. Two cargo and passenger ship3, the Hindoo and the Enmore, having sailed before the David Malcolm left, may be hourly expected ; and other vessels mentioned in our shipping intelligence may also be looked for soon.
