interest on the whole debt has been provided for and the current interest punctually paid, and that the directors have assumed the management of the road under circumstances more favorable than have ever existed in its history. The receiver had money on hand to pay all the expenses of operating the road, including rents and taxes, to the first of January, besides a considerable surplus, to be applied, under the direction of the court, to the payment of the interest on the mortgage bonds as it becomes due. With the ability to earn more income than ever before, it is hoped the early return of peace and prosperity to the country will so increase the traffic that the road will hereafter earn full interest on the entire capital and debt of the company.

NEW-YORK AND ERIE RAIL-ROAD. From the tables appended to the report of the receiver we compile the following, showing the annual earnings and expenses of the road from 1852 to 1861 inclusive, with the cost of repairs of track and railway, and of engines and cars : Earnings.

THE LONG DOCK COMPANY. The works of the above company, by which the Erie Railway is provided with ample accommodation upon the Hudson River, have cost, thus far, over two and a half millions of dollars. The tunnel, cut through solid rock for 4,300 feet, cost $1,000,000; it has been in use since last May, being traversed by some fifty trains daily. The company has thus a con

tinuous track from Lake Erie to the Hudson River, 460 miles, besides numerous connections. The company has built a passenger house 40 by 460 feet, a freight house 54 by 420 feet, a milk house 37 by 384 feet, an engine house 60 by 399 feet, besides sheds and shops. There is 17 miles of track upon the grounds. By these arrangements vessels can load at once from the cars of the Erie Railway for any port in the world.

FRENCH STATISTICS. The recent quinquennial report of the census exhibits the population of France to be 37,382,225. When the last census was taken, in 1856, it was 36,039,364. This has not, however, been all natural increase, as, since that time, the annexation of Savoy and Nice have added 669,059 new French citizens to the population of France. The Minister of France has just given publicity to the receipts of the past year. The direct taxes collected up to the 31st of December, 1861, amounted to 479,327,000 francs, upon a total of assessments of 492,936,000 francs. The indirect taxes yielded, in 1859, 1,094,644,000 francs; in 1860, 1,073,712,000 francs, and in 1861, 1,099,566,000 francs. The augmentation of indirect taxes, gathered from the sale of wines, liquors and tobacco, had been considerable. In 1859, the liquor taxes yielded 174,271,000 francs; in 1860, 176,036,000 francs, and in 1861, 195,316,000 francs. The product of the sale of tobacco amounted, in 1859, to 176,744,000 francs, and in 1861, to 215,255,000 francs. The price at which the government sells it has been raised twenty per cent. since the first-named year. The number of suicides in France during the

year just passed was 3,899—an average of more than ten a day, and one in a little less than every ten thousand inhabitants. Of these, 3,057 were males, and 842 females; 16 were children under 15 years of age; 38 men and 11 women were 90 years of age and upward, while the majority were between 40 and 60. Suicides were most frequent in the months of April, May, June and July, which in France are usually the most pleasant of the year. The causes of death were: Hanging and drowning, 2,833; suffocation by charcoal, 271; guns, 206; pistols, 189; cutting instruments, 153; jumping from high buildings, 110; poison, 93; not specified, 44.

* The population by counties for 1851 cannot be given, inasmuch as the province has, since that time, been re-divided, and the thirty-six counties of 1851 have been multiplied into the sixty-four counties of 1861, none of which correspond in bounds ries to the old divisions.
