GOOD NEWS FOR THE POOR.

WE are informed by a gentleman who arrived at the Victoria Hotel on yesterday, that when he left America there were 5,000,000 barrels of Flour ready to be shipped for England and Ireland. Although we are not disposed to receive this statement without considerable qualification, as from the last advices the Stocks at the Seaboard were reduced to a narrow compass, we at the same time have little doubt that the stocks of Flour in the interior are of sufficient magnitude to admit of immense shipments. This opinion we have always held and expressed.
