EmigrationA number of families left Rushden on Thursday to seek their fortunes abroad. In Fletcher Road, a street containing only about 16 houses, no fewer than 14 persons are leaving for the colonies. Mr. Attley, Mr. Odell, Mr. and Mrs. Davies and three children, and Mr. and Mrs. Sinfield are going to Australia, and Mrs. Holland and her six children are rejoining Mr. Holland in Canada. A large company visited the railway station on Thursday evening, when 24 persons left the town, some for Canada, and some for Australia.
