--It is announced that a "flow of emigration from the late Confederate States expected in Brazil." We do not know from particular locality the "flow" is but we have seen no symptoms of it for time in Virginia. At the gloomy period immediately succeeding the evacuation of Richmond, some inclination was manifested by a number of young men to make their homes in that country, and a good many valuable Brazil statistics were raked up by the public prints. With the indications of a liberal and enlightened policy on the part of the Government, the emigration scheme lost its attractions, and we have heard very little of it of late. There are ample rewards in the future for enterprise in Virginia as well as other Southern States, and we counsel any who still think of emigration, not to be precipitate, but await events, which may be more encouraging than they anticipate.
