THE 'PRINCESS ROYAL,' EMIGRANT SHIP.

The fine barque above-named arrived yesterday with upwards of two hundred free emigrants, after a fine passage of four months, having taken her final departure from Plymouth on the 15th November last. The Princess Royal left London on the 5th and Plymouth on the 15th November, touching at St. Jago (Azores) on the 11th and sailing again on the 13th December. The new comers are chiefly from the mining districts of Devon and Cornwall. The names of the adults of either sex, as well as the married couples, will be found in our list of arrivals. There were seven births and only three deaths on the passage. The Princess Royal brings a very small mail, and the dates are not so late by ten days as those received via Hobart Town, and of which we gave a digest on Saturday last ; but we have gleaned several articles of Foreign Intelligence which we publish elsewhere.
