DUTY ON FIRE INSURANCES. The Parliamentary return of the insurance duty paid in 1865 has just been published, and is the last return which will embody the differential rates on stook (Is. 6d. per cent.) and en buildings and furniture (3?. per cent.). For the purpose of comparing the business of eaoh company in 1865 with that in 1864, we have made up. an account for the two years as though the duty had remained at 3s. per oent. We thus get a measure of the progress of each company, and the result is as fol- lows. It appears that the Royal is again greatly in advance of all the other offices as respects increase of business. Increase in 1865 over 1864.
