A Parliamantary paper issued on Wednesday, upon the motion of Sir Massey Lopes, shows the actual ex- penditure upon the cavy (excluding the conveyance of troops) from each yeat from 1860-61 to 1883-84.

The lowest expenditure in any one year was jE9,374,328 in 1872-73, and the next to that £ 9,509,655 in 1869.70. The expenditure for 1882-83 was 210,799,201, and that for 1883.4 is estimated at £ 10,620,700.
