Emigrants fewer this year

Immigration at Boston  — The number of emigrants which arrived at Boston during the half year ending July 1, 1855, was only  5997, against 11, 050 in the same period of last year,  — a falling off of nearly one-half.  Their sanitary and pecuniary condition is much better than formerly.
