Harzen, in the cabin and one hundred and eighty-one German Emigrants in the steerage. ....... The George Washington, arrived on Thursday last, brings one hundred and eighty-one steerage, and two cabin passengers. Six deaths occurred on the voyage, viz., three adults and three children. there were also eight births. We understand the passengers present a very clean and respectable appearance. One of them became deranged at an early stage of the passage; and, we are sorry to say, he still continues in that melancholy state.
