A census bulletin recently issued shows that
the number of farms in the United States has
increased from 2,GGO,000, in 1S70, to -1,000,000,
in 1S60, at the rate of 31 per cent. Compared
with the increase of population, which was
about 30 per cent, during the same period, the
agricultural development of the past ten years
proves to have been rapid and extensive. The
most striking increase in the number of farms
has taken place in the South and the North
western and Pacific States. The increase is
shown to be 102 per cent, in Alabama, 91 in
Arkansas. 129 in Florida, OS in Georgia, 70 in
Louisiana, 50 in Mississippi, 63 in North Caro
lina, SI in South Carolina. GO in Virginia, and
183 in Texas. These figures are at once signifi
cant and encouraging. They indicate the
social and industrial chango that has taken
place in the Soutli since the war, and show the
extent to which its once great plantations have
been cut up into small farms. In Icwa there
has been an increase of 59 per cent, in the
number of farms; in Minnesota 99, in Nebraska
413, in Oregon 11-5, and in California 51. The
greatest multiplication has taken place in the
Territories, the rate of increase ranging from
7ri per cent, in Montana, to upwards of 900 per
cent, in Dakota. The marked growth of farm
ing shown by the census returns in the Terri
tories and the Western States is obviously duo
to the rapid settlement of this part of the coun
try by immigrants and others.
The Census Bureau has issued special bulle
tins relating to the commercial fisheries of the
South Atlantic and Middle States. The follow
ing arc summaries of the statistical tables pre
sented: South Atlantic Status Persons em
ployed, 52.41S; fishing vessels, 3,011 ; tonnage,
G0,S5G; fishing boats, 13,331; capital dependent
on the fishery industries, $3,951,722 ; pounds of

ducts other than fish for food, 129,719,527;
pounds of miscellaneous products for fertilizers
and other purposes, 94,GGS,S00; value of pro

36,75S,356; pounds of miscellaneous products
for fertilizers and other purposes, 319,005,700 ;
value of products in marketable condition, $3,
874,699. The quarterly report of tho Chief of the Bu
reau of Statistics relative to tho imports, exports,
immigration, and navigation for tho three
months ending June 30, 1632, has just been
published- During that period tho imports
amounted to $197,400,845, against $173,601,143
in 1831. The exports of domestic merchandise
amounted to $153,625,416, against $193,333,329
in the corresponding period of last year. The
exports of foreign merchandise were $4,533,391
and $5,137,744, respectively. In 13S2, 310,350
immigrants arrived in this country, against
311,954 in 1881. Of these, Europe sent 237,140 ;
Asia, 19,2-16; Africa, 10; British North Ameri
can Provinces, 32,021; Mexico, 1S7; Central
America, 1 ; Soutli America, 35 ; and the West
The census bureau has issued a special bulle
tin devoted to statistics of the manufacture of
petroleum, from which it appears that on tho
31st of May, 1830, there were in the United
States eighty-six petroleum manufacturing es
tablishments, with an invested capital of $27,
395,746. The amount of crude oil used during
the year was 731.533,127 gallons, and tho value
of manufactured products $13,703,218.
The immigrant statistics at Castle Garden,
New York, for the past ten months show an
increase of 21,352 arrivals over those for tho
corresponding mouths of last year.
The fires arc now lighted in over 1,000 sugar
bouses through twenty-seven parishes in Louisi
ana. From lied River to the Gulf, from the
Feliciauas to the cattle ranges of Calcasieu, the
thousands of laborers engaged in the produc
tion of this great staple are busy. It is, in
fact, a vast manufacturing centre. The cane
carts follow tho legions that are leveling with
knives the rank rows of cane, and all night is
heard the grinding of the rollers and tho whirr
of machinery throughout all this district. In
dustry is seconding the etforts of capital ; agri
culture and manufacture arc brought together,
and the welfare of at least 150,000 laborers de
pends upon the result, while over $10,000,000
of capital is awaiting the return for its invest
ment. All will be a rush, throughout the sugar
districts for the next sixty days, and Christmas
will scarce find the year's work done.
The sis principal winter wheat States will
aggregate about 214,000,000 bushels. There is
a reduction in the acreage of the spring wheat
area of the Northwest, but the yield may reach
HS.OOO.OOO bushels. The Pacific coast will
probably yield 45,000,000 bushels, the Middle
States 40,000,000 bushels, and the Southern
States a little more than 50,000,000 bushels.
Kansas holds its reputation for largo returns
to the toiler, with tho extraordinary average
yield of 19.5. The country north of tho Ohio
River, in the great wheat belt, averages nearly
&i.tcen bushels, Kentucky and Missouri promiso
about fourteen bushels, and California thirteen
Oats are an immense crop. The average yield
is higher than that of last year. Kansas ranks
among the highest, as it does in wheat. The
total production in oats of all tho States will
probably be 430,000,000 bushels.
The corn crop of Texas this year is estimated
at 140,000,000 bushels. The value of the agri
cultural products of that State is $94,071,998.
There are over 600,000 acres of tobacco fields
in the United States. The crop is valued at
The annual report of tho Old Colony Railway
Company was made public November 3. Tho
receipts for the year ending September 30 were
$1,120,238.39; expenditures, including taxes,
were $2,820,309.82 ; net earnings from business,
$1,305, 1 jrt.57 ; earnings, after deducting interest
and rentals, $337,919.69. Compared with the
previous report, this gives net income in
creased, $37,037. The number of passengers
carried in 1SS2, 6,593,471; in 1881,5,024,030;
tons of freight carried, 1,552,616; in 1531,

to New York has been profitable, and a divi
dend of eight per cent, has been received on
the shares of the steamboat company owned by
the Old Colony Railway.
The following are the approximate gross
earnings of the Northern Pacific Railroad, for
the fourth week in October: 1SS2 (1,419 miles),
$220,315; 1SS1 (972 miles), $188,371.81; in
crease, 447 miles, $37,943.16. For tho month
of October: 1632, $S34,460; 1831, 533,951.84;
The estimated gross earnings of the Norfolk

Jay Gould's new Union depot will cover
about three and one-half acres.
THE STOCK MARKET.
Review of tho Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune
New Yoi:k, Nov. 8. Tho market opened a
shade weaker this morning, but was tempo
rarily rallied by manipulation. At one time
there was quite a Bull feeling among tho
traders in the room. Tho outside public failed
to rise to tho situation, and it became evident
that the upward move was made for the pur
pose of selling stocks, and a general scramble
to get out took place, which was continued till
the end of the day, at which timo the market
closed at its weakest point. We do not con
sider the outlook at all agreeable, and we aro
positively informed from headquarters that
the contract between tho Mutual Union and
the new cable company has been signed and
delivered, and tho cable will be in working
order on July 1st.
The metropolitan election is in favor of tho
Kncelaud party, and the street is inclined to
consider that Gould has made rather a losing
race of it. In the last thirty days it is very
certain that a general feeling of distrust pre
vails, of which the end is not at tho moment
apparont. The pegging process in L. S. docs
nothing to sustain confidence, as Mr. Yander
bilt is rather underestimated than overesti
mated. It may be borne in mind that he has
withdrawn his peg once before, and may do so
again, in which event as fiist and as far as be
fore. It is emphatically the time to keep close
to the shore, and wo await developments for
the next day or two with considerable interest.
Money loaned as high as 25 per cent., closing
about 20 per cent.
