Pauper Emigrants.--
The Common Council have appointed a Committee to make arrangements with the master of the ship Æolus, respecting the unfortunate emigrants on board that vessel, sent out by Lord Palmerston, of whom every care will be taken consistent with public safety. The Quarantine Establishment on Partridge Island was broken up this week, and the emigrants removed to the Alms House Hospital, except a very few, who were too ill to be removed with safety. These remain under charge of a medical man, and are waited upon by McGowan, the Steward, who with his wife remains on the Island.-New Bruns.

Chas. M. Murray
Master of Wood-heet[?] Primress

Small Pox--
This loathsome disease has made its appearance at Woodstock, and we learn from the Reporter of yesterday, that one of the diseased persons arrived at Fredericton on Wednesday. The authorities should endeavour to guard against the spread of the disease in the Province.

The report from the Hospital this week is as follows--

The following is the remark of one of the evening papers of that day:--

John Harvey
A few respectable Boarders can be accommodated.

Agricultural Society
The regular Monthly Meeting of the Agricultural Society will be held at Mr. Perley's Office, Market Square, on Thursday next, at 12 o'clock.-Punctual attendance is requested, as the Accounts have to be audited and a report drawn up, preratory[sic] to the Annual Meeting.

The Mail for England to meet the sailing of the Steamer Acadia from Halifax on the 3d proximo, will be closed at the Post Office in this City on Saturday next, the 27th instant, at three o'clock in the afternoon.

Several shocks of earthquake had been felt in this island. One continued considerably longer than the shocks usually experienced.

The Colonist reports that a shock was felt at Marie Galante, which destroyed a church and did much additional injury.

From Mexico--
General Scott's despatches detailing his successes in Mexico, up to the taking of the capital, have at length reached Washington, and are being published in the American papers.

Intelligence of much later date has since been received, which shews that the American army are much harassed in their marches through the country.-Capt. Walker of the Texan Rangers, is among the number of American officers recently killed.

A letter, represented to come from a very respectable house in the City of Mexico, states that Mr. Trist has again invited the Mexican Government to new conferences, and adds, "May God grant that the result of them army be peace, which we so much desire."

A large majority of the Mexicans are said to be in favor of peace, but parties differ as to the means of bringing it about-some being anxious that the Church and Military establishments should be broken down before peace is restored.

Senor Pena y Pena has taken a firm hold of the reins of government, and has called around him a much more intelligent class of men than had honored the cabinet of Mexico for some time. Bustamente, it is expected, will be appointed commander in chief of the army.

Her Majesty's Steamer Columbia Capt. Owen, from this port via Yarmouth, arrived at Halifax on the 11th inst. on her way to England.

A warrant published in the London Gazette of the 19th Oct. directs certain alterations in the rates of postage, and among others orders that on every letter not exceeding half an ounce in weight transmitted by packet between the Islands of Martinique and Guadaloupe and British North America, a uniform rate of four pence shall be charged; and that a local rate of one penny shall be charged on all letters transmitted through the post between any two places in the Island of Hong Kong. These rates are widely different from the exhorbitant charges at present exacted in the North American Provinces.

Emigrants At Quebec.--
By the return of the Chief Emigration Officer in Canada, we learn that the whole number of emigrants arrived at Quebec and Montreal in 1847 is 98,106, being an increase of 65,353 over the number arrived in 1846.

Among the emigrants of this year, the deaths on the voyage, in Quarantine and at the Hospitals, after landing, amount to the enormous number of 13,365.

The "Richard Watson," from Sligo, with 230 of Lord Palmerston's wretched cottiers, has arrived at Quebec. The Quebec Morning Chronicle of the 11th inst. says, "the landing of these poor creatures on our shores, at this season of the year, to use the mildest language possible can only be styled cruelty, as the greater part of them will have to eke out a miserable subsistence during our inclement winter, and many may perish of cold and want."

Mr. Mills, the mayor of Montreal, who has been unceasing in his exertions to ameliorate the condition of the emigrants, has fallen a victim to the Emigrant fever. So also has Dr. Clarke, one of the Physicians at the Marine Hospital. Mr. Buchanan, the Chief Emigration Officer, has recovered from a severe attack of the fever; but Mr. McElderry the Emigration officer at Toronto has fallen a victim to the disease.

The published returns of the Kingston Immigrant Hospital, up to 18th Oct., show that there were patients admitted, 1959; discharged, 831; died 707; and remaining in Hospital, 431.

In the Toronto Immigrant Hospital to 22d Oct., there were patients admitted 3300; discharged, 1993; died, 757; and remaining in Hospital, and in the convalescent establishment, 739.

Niagara Falls Suspension Bridge.--
The Suspension Bridge Companies have lately been several days in session at the Falls, and have decided on the construction of the bridge for the passage of railroad trains. The strength of the supporting cables is to be not less than 6500 tons. The cost is not to exceed $190,000; and the work to be completed by the first of May 1849. The bridge will be in sight both on the cataract and whirlpool, and span the gorge by an arch of 800 feet, suspended 230 feet above the surface of the river.-Chas. Ellett, Jr. of Philadelphia, has been appointed engineer.

Papers from St. John's to the 10th inst. brought to Halifax by the Steamer Unicorn, came to hand by the Eastern Mail last evening. From various parts of the Colony, painful accounts continue to be received of destitution among a considerable portion of the inhabitants. From Placentia Bay, St. Mary's Bay, Ferryland District, Conception Bay, Trinity Bay and Bonavista Bay, appeals were pouring in for assistance from the Government, which the crippled resources of the Treasury would prevent being afforded to the extent desired, and appeals were in course of preparation to be forwarded to the Home Government.-Upwards of seventy individuals had arrived at St. John's from Burin, for the purpose of throwing themselves upon the bounty of the Government for shelter during the winter; but it is resolved to send them back again, and afford them such assistance in the district as the public means would allow.

The intelligence by the New York, being only a day later from the continent, adds but little to our former advices.-Pope Pius had promulgated a decree, establishing a Council of State, agreeably to the design expressed in his famous circular of the 19th April last. In Tuscany, the punishment of death had been abolished by proclamation of the Grand Duke.

We are without any intelligence of the English Mail which would leave Liverpool on the 4th inst. in the Steamer Acadia. It was understood that she had not arrived at Halifax last Thursday at noon then fourteen days from her time of sailing.

The Weather.--
A week of very changeable weather is about closing upon us with a certain indication of winter's near approach-the mud being hard frozen in the streets to-day, and the air cold. River navigation is, to all appearance, near its close with us.

Emigrant Hospital.--
Report for the week ending Friday, 19th inst:
In Hospital, Friday, 12th instant,485
Admitted since,23
Discharged, 79; Died, 11,90
Remaining in Hospital,428
Of the above deaths, six were children, some a very short time in Hospital.
