Miss Rye sent last week, from Liverpool, by the Government emigration ship Red Jacket, one hundred young women, the majority of whom are English, a considerable number Irish, and a few Scotch, to Melbourne. They are all girls qualified by physical health and moral character to take positions in domestic life as servants of various ranks when they reach the colonies.
