Emigration--Our Territory has, during the winter, received a considerable addition to its population, by the arrival of families, mostly from the state of New York, through Canada; and while we are writing this article, two ferry boats, laden with families from different parts of New york, are crossing to our shore. Most of the emigrants that have arrived this winter, are descendants from those hardy and enterprising men who, 20 or 30 years ago, made the forests disappear in the western parts of the state of new York, at that time called the Westward. Sometimes we see an old veteran accompanying his children, and seeming well pleased to have it in his power to teach them how to convert the wilderness into blooming gardens.
