Nominated Immigration.

It is rumored that a proposal will be made during the present session of Parliament for the resumption—within moderate limits, and subject to certain restrictions—of nominated immigration. Should the proposal result in a renewal of the system, it will doubtless prove beneficial to the colony—provided always that immigrants of the right kind only are introduced. The colony is urgently in need of female immigrants as domestic servants, for whom, indeed, there appears to exist an unlimited demand, not only with us, but in Australia, where the “ servant girl difficulty ” has reached alarming proportions. As an instance of this, it was stated in an Adelaide paper the other day that a couple of South Australian speculators were seriously contemplating shipping out to the colony a large consignment of single girls to act as domestic aids, and were sanguine of making a good thing out of the transaction ! We cannot vouch for the truth of tin’s story, but the dearth of domestics is deplored on all hands, and a revival of the immigration scheme would certainly be hailed with satisfaction by' at least one section of the community—the perplexed mistresses.
