RECENT DECREASE OP OCR TOIIEIGI DEBT
By far the preatett decrease In our foreign
debt occurred in 1678, and in like manner we
find tbe greatest increase in raw production
during that year. To iibow the rapidity of
tins recent change toward raw production,
there are given below tbe amount ol newly
ttiea lanas lor acrienuurn in tbe Lulled
Slates lor tbe year 1875 to 1878 :
Amount settled in 1P75 8. 04 390
Amount settled in 1870 4 202 7vl
Amount settled in 1877 3 580 937
Amount settled In 1878 7.2bl 001
It should also he noticed ibat the number of
immigrant In 1S78 was the smallest for tev
ral years, thus making the cnange greater
than it appear. This change Would be na
iled by a reduction in ttie cu'ioui tariff.
but without any such reduction it mutt pro
ceed until a normal condition it reached.
