GOOD NEWS FOR THE HUMBLE EMIGRANTS. - The Philadelphia Public Ledger says:- "The farmers in the Western States have sent pressing orders to New York for hiring all the European emigrants who land there. Every emigrant in health, and willing to work, is to be placed on board conveyances for Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri, and the farmers say they should be glad to see a million of Emigrants this year rather then one hundred thousand." If the writer be accurate - and we cannot see why we should doubt his statement - these are cheering prospects to greet the arrival of our poor countrymen in the far West.
