At present a Geftnnn emigrant pays a little over thirty dollars for his vmssage to New York by steamer, and only twen- | ty by sailing vessel. immigrants via 1 Quebec arc said to reach Chicago from Christiana, in Norway, with an expendi tore of only forty-two dollars. Perhaps it may be best to send agents over there and loan money to bo paid when the em igrant has earned it here, but it does not seem possible that the rates of pas sage could be reduced. What is most needed, wo take it, is the putting into eflect some plan to protect the immigrant from being swindled after he arrives on our shores.
