The emigration from Ireland now averages somewhat under 100,000 a year. In 1856 it was 91,000, in 1855 it was 92,000. The proportion from the different provinces is maintained with singular exactness. In both years the number from Ulster was 31,000, and that from Munster 34,000. (Transcribed by James Tuff.)
