Emigration to Central America.

--The Central American States are making vigorous efforts to promote the settlement of their vacant territory by liberal grants of land to families emigrating to their country, and also by assisting industrious persons in Europe who have not the means of removal, but who are willing to undertake the journey. The last accounts from England state that Senor Guitierrez, Minister of the Government of Salvador at the English Court, has a contract, through his agent in Paris, with sixty families removing from the Continent to that State, and has chartered a vessel to convey them from Havre to Aspinwall. The Government grant to each family one hundred and fifty acres of land, and hope in this way to increase their industrial resources, and thus add to their material prosperity. There is a similar project on foot for a colony in Honduras.
