tween that date and the end of the year under review, and deducting therefrom the total num-
ber of deaths which occurred in the same period; and by adding the excess of immigration over
emigration during the year. The distribution of the population throughout the districts df the
Colony, with the density per square mile is shown in Appendix A.
