This, as compared with 1882,shows a falling off in the immigration at this point of 69,864. 01 the immigrants who arrived during 1883, about 170,000 were Germans, a little more than 90,000 came from the British isles, and of those over one-half were Irish. About 25,000 came from Italy Sweden followed with about 20,000, and Norway and Hungary each contributed over 11,000. During the last year 25,496 cabin pas­ sengers from Europe landed at this port This shows an increase over the figures °f 1882. The Providence Journal tells a pathet­ ic story about a humble German citizen of that place, a saloon keeper, but a re­ putable, quiet, law-abiding and worthy man, who died just as the glad Christ­ mas set in. His family desired to give him Christian burial, and requested one minister after anot...

VvV'S&r' Said and Done. Greenland has, according to the teat census of 1880,10,000inhabitants, against 8,128 in 1840. Of these, only 280 are Europeans, almost all Danes, partly in the service of the monopolized royal commerce, partly working at tt cryo­ lite qnarrv. The women are in an un­ usually large majority—1,154 against 1,000 men—specially due to the great number of casualties for the men at sea in kajak, in South Greenland. Of 1,000 persons, only 21 reach an age of 60years, against 100 on the Fsero Islands, 96 in Denmark, and 71 in Iceland. Within the past few years a good many professional gamblers have found it to their advantage to travel on the steamers plying between this country and Europe. These gamblers make it a point to play with wealthy young Americans, wno are on tbeir trawls, and sometimes they follow their victims all over Europe.
