* Our Colonial Statistics are so vague and so imperfect that it is extremely difficult to approximate to truth ; this Table, as also a similar one in the First Volume,
is given for the purpose of affording a Comparative View of the Colonies and to demonstrate their importance in the aggregate.
+ I do not include the charges incurred by England for troops; that is an evil which I have shewn may be remedied.

# No returns to Government.
