NEW ZEALAND IN 1867. It appears from the report of the Registrar-General, which has just been published, that the population of New Zealand amounted to 218,668, according to the census taken is December, 1867, having increased no less than 46,510, or 27 per cent., since the latest pre- ceding census in 1864. The number of immigrants was 11,126, being less than the number in any year since 1860, when it was 8,935, the numbers in the intervening years ranging from 15,000 to nearly 45,000. The shipping entered and cleared at port in the colony amounted to 617,737 tons. Its imports were valued at X5,344,607, being a decrease of half a million on the preceding year, but its exports had an increase of zE120,000, having reached the highest value since the foundation of the colonyânamely, £ 4,644,678. As might be expected, gold and wool together make up nearly the whole of this large sum, being respectively valued at X2,700,000 and £ 1,580,000. The total value mof gold exported in the last seven years is X14,000,000, being an average annual export of X2,000,000, and even this large amount seems likely to be exceeded in future years. During the same septennial period the value of the wool exported amounted to more than £ 7,000,000, being at the rate of one million per year; and this, too, seems likely to be increased. The revenue of the colony was, in 1867, zCI,864,155, being rather more than L9 per head of population, and the expenditure, including the many works of improvement now being carried out in the colony, was about £ 5,000,000. The liabilities of the colony amounted to rather less than four millions and a half, being of nearly the same amount as her exports.
