ERRATUM

By an error in the Return forwarded to me, of which I was made aware only after the Table, (No. 36 of Part II.), in which it occurs, and most part of the Introductory Report, had been printed, the Amount authorised to be raised by the Canterbury "Railway Loan Ordinance, 1860," is stated as £500,000,—the correct Amount being £300,000. The corrected Total of the "Amount authorised to be Borrowed" by the General and Provincial Governments will consequently be £6,329,000 instead of £6,529,000.

CENSUS RESULTS AND GENERAL STATISTICS OF NEW ZEALAND FOR 1864.

REPORT TO THE HONORABLE E. W. STAFFORD, COLONIAL SECRETARY,

&c., &c., &c.

Registrar-General's Office,

Auckland, May 7th, 1866.

SIR,—

In the series of Statistical Tables for 1864 which I now have the honor to present, will be found, in considerable detail, the Results of the Census of New Zealand taken in December of that year, as well as the General Statistical information relating to the Colony which it has been usual to include in the successive Annual Volumes of which this is the Ninth. Some of the most important of the Census Results have, however, been made public nearly a year ago. It having been deemed especially desirable that those Results which would directly come under review in the Census discussion of a Representation Act, should be available during the Session of the General Assembly, steps were taken to obtain from the Enumerators, at the earliest practicable date after the collection of the Household Forms by the Sub-Enumerators, Returns in anticipation of their fuller compilations. From these I prepared Tables showing compendiously the Population, the Cultivation and Crops, and the Live Stock in each Province, and in each Electoral District, of the Colony. Although, even in this effort, some delay was occasioned by the necessity of writing for explanations or amendments, yet I had the satisfaction of being able by the end of March 1865, to complete the information referred to with a sufficiently close approximation to accuracy for all practical purposes. The Tables which I then laid before the Government were published in the Gazette, Number 17, of the 18th of May, with additional Tables comparing, numerically and centesimally, the Census of 1864 with the Censuses of 1861 and 1858. Not long afterwards, the Gazette (Number 23 of July 11th) contained a Table, similar to No. 12 of Part I. in this Volume, showing the Numbers of Males in each Electoral District of the age of 21 and upwards, with the respective Numbers of Electors, and calculations connected with the extent to which the Electoral Franchise was possessed by the Population;—and a subsequent Gazette, (Number 37 of September 22nd), contained a revised Summary of the Census Results which had been published, corrected from the Enumerators' final Returns, with such an Estimate as I was able to form of the Population of the Colony on the 30th of June (1865).

Contents of this Volume.

Previous Publication of Certain Results O Census.

I regret, however, to be obliged to remark that, notwithstanding the unusually early publication of certain principal Results of the Census, the Statistical Volume as a whole appears later than in any previous year. Various causes have combined to produce delay. The compilation of the details of several branches of the Census information involved in some instances references back to the Enumerators, and ultimately tedious and laborious examination of the original Schedules. Indeed, no inconsiderable portion of the work which should have been done by the Enumerators devolved upon this Office, so that the effort to arrive at the utmost attainable accuracy cost much more time and trouble than in the case of either of the preceding Censuses (1861 or 1858). The greatest delay, however, was with regard to the General Statistics. In addition to the hindrances which are almost inevitable, and which may be said to be peculiar to New Zealand as compared with other Australasian Colonies,—owing to the large numbers of Returns required from distant and detached localities, and the variety of distinct and independent Departments, General and Provincial, from which these Returns are to be obtained,—there were special hindrances arising out the removal of the Seat of Government just at the period of 1865 when the Statistical Returns for 1864 might otherwise have been expected to be prepared, and the consequent unavoidable postponement of a work for which reference to numerous records in different Offices would be necessary. To this followed the demands for financial and other Returns required for the Session of the General Assembly, to which, very possibly, precedence was given. Without entering minutely, however, into these and other causes of delay, I may state that some of the materials for important Tables in this Volume did not come into my own hands until the latter part of the month of January last;—and that, since the Tables were ready for the press, the work of printing has been protracted beyond what I had at all anticipated. Thus much, however, it seems only simple justice to this Department to mention, in explanation of a delay longer than has occurred before, or than, I hope and believe, is likely to occur again, in the publication of the Statistical Volume.

Cause of Delay in Publication of this Volumes.

With a view to facility of reference and general convenience of arrangement, the Tables have been classified in two Divisions, Part I. being exclusively devoted to the Census, and Part II. containing the General Statistics of the year.

Division of Volume into Two Parts.

PART I.—CENSUS.

The Census enumeration was taken for the night of the first of December 1864, on a Plan substantially the same as that adopted in December 1861, by which the information was obtained not only (as on previous occasions) for each Province of the Colony, but also for each Electoral District returning Members to the General Assembly. The compilations have been made in conformity with this Plan, separate Tables having been constructed for the Provinces and the Electoral Districts respectively, upon all the branches of information on which such details seemed necessary. Appendix E to Part I. contains, in extenso, the Schedules to the "Representation Act 1860" and the "Representation Act 1862," showing the exact territory comprised in each Electoral District. The republication of these descriptions of boundaries in connection with the Tables for 1864, appeared to me the more requisite on account of the extensive alterations in the Electoral Districts of the Southern Island effected by the Representation Act passed in the last Session of the General Assembly. As in 1861, the important trust of selecting the persons by whom the actual work of the Census in the several Provinces was to be carried out was, practically, placed in the hands of the respective Provincial Governments; the Enumerator for each Province having been appointed by His Excellency, in accordance with a nomination by the Superintendent of a gentleman whom his Honor regarded as competent to discharge the duties satisfactorily; and the Sub-Enumerators having been chosen by the Enumerator,—(subject, of course, to the Governor's approval, which was always given).

Arrangements for the Census of 1864.

Appendix E.

The Military Settlers and the Colonial Defence Force in the Northern Island were, however, a new and peculiar addition to the Population of the SP Colony, and special steps were taken to ensure fulness and accuracy of information respecting them. Instead of leaving them to be enumerated under the general arrangements for the Provinces and Districts, an Officer, (in most instances the Commanding Officer), of each Regiment or Corps was appointed as Enumerator, and members of the Regiment or Corps, selected by him, as Sub-Enumerators. There was some difficulty in determining on the best mode of dealing with the Returns in these cases; but, on the whole, the plan which appeared to me likely to give the information in the clearest form, and with least liability to error or confusion, was that they should be included in the Numbers for the Provinces, but not in those for the Electoral Districts, (in which it would have been scarcely possible to classify them correctly);—and that the principal Results of this section of the Census should be shown separately. This was the plan pursued, in a summary form, in the first Tables of Census Results (published in the Gazette of May 18th 1865); and I have adhered to it in the preparation of the details in this Volume; the Appendices A, B, C, D, to Part I. showing a variety of particulars relating to the Military Settlers, &c.

Census of Military Settlers, &c.

From these preliminary remarks I proceed, as on former occasions, to give in a condensed form, the leading points of the information embodied in the following Tables, referring those who desire to enter into minuter details to the Tables themselves. The Notes in the margin, will direct to the several Tables in which such details are to be found.

Objects of this Report

POPULATION.

In December 1864, the Population, of European Descent, in New Zealand, (exclusive of the Military and their Families), as shown by the Census Returns, was 172,158, of whom 106,580 were Males, and 65,578 Females. In these numbers are included the Military Settlers, &c., and their Families, numbering altogether 6,382,—viz. 5,139 Males, and 1,243 Females. The distribution of the Total Population through the several Provinces was as follows :—Auckland, 42,132 :—Taranaki, 4,374:—Wellington, 14,987 :—Hawke's Bay, 3,770 :—Nelson, 11,910 :—Marlborough, 5,519: Canterbury, 32,276 :—Otago, 49,019 :—Southland, 8,085 :—to which is to be added the population of the Chatham Islands, (86) making the aggregate as above. Thus it will be seen that the Northern Island, (comprising the Provinces Of the Northern and middle Islands ; of Auckland, Taranaki, Wellington, and Hawke's Bay), contained 65,263 or 37.93 per cent, of the Population;— and the Middle Island, (comprising the Provinces of Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury, Otago and Southland), 106,809 or 62.07 per cent. These numbers, as has been stated, do not include the Military or their Families, who numbered 11,973, viz., Officers and Men, 9,136; Male Children, 933; and Women and Female Children, 1,904.

A comparison of these figures with the Numbers shown by the three previous General Censuses of New Zealand, will afford satisfactory evidence of the rapid advance of the Colony as to its Population. In the three years from 1861 to 1864, tracing the Census Results backward in order of time, the Population increased from 99,021 to 172,158, being an Increase of 73,137 Persons, or 73.86 per cent. In the three preceding years, viz., from 1858 to 1861, the Increase was 39,643 Persons, or 66.82 per cent. In the seven preceding years, viz. from 1851 to 1858, the Increase was 32,621 Persons, or, calculated centesimally, 121.86 per cent.

Comparison with Previous Years;

1864 with 1861;

1861 with 1858;

1858 with 1851.

Taking the comparison between 1851 and 1864, we find that the Population had, in this period of thirteen years, grown from a Total of 26,707 to a Total of 172,158, being an Increase of 145,451 Persons, or 544.61 per cent. This was an average Increase for the period of 11,188 Persons, or 41.89 per cent, in each year. Comparing similarly the shorter periods included, the average Annual Increase from 1851 to 1858 was 17.41 per cent, on the Population of 1851:—the average Annual Increase from 1858 to 1861 was 22.24 per cent, on the Population of 1858:—and the average Annual Increase from 1861 to 1864 was 24.58 per cent, on the Population of 1861.

Average Annual Increase-

The advance in the Population of the several Provinces in the triennial period from 1861 to 1864 will be found in detail in Table II. The following Summary presents the Results in the order of the proportionate Increase within that period in each Province, as compared with its Population in 1861 :—

The Population of each Electoral District of the Colony will be found in Table IV., which shows, in addition to the Numbers, Sexes, and Ages, the Numbers of each Sex under and over 21 years. Table V. contains a comparison of the Population of each District in 1864 with its Population in 1861. As the Census of 1861 was the first in which arrangements were made for an enumeration according to the divisions into Electoral Districts, this comparison cannot be carried farther back than that year.

Electoral Districts.(TABLES IV _V.)

The Population enumerated by the Census was, (it need scarcely be repeated here,) exclusively of European descent. Had it been practicable to take a Census of the Aboriginal Native Population of New Zealand at the same time, the Results would, no doubt, have been regarded with great interest. But the attempt, which would have been attended with difficulty under the most favorable circumstances, would, in the then existing circumstances of some of those parts of the country where Maories were most numerous, have been useless, or worse. After the (European) Census of 1861, I prepared an Estimate of the Native Population based upon the Maori Census of 1857-58, (of which copious extracts were published in the Statistical Volume for 1857). According to this Estimate, the Maori population then amounted to 55,336,—viz., 31,329 Males, and 23,928 Females, (with 79 whose sex was not stated). Of these, the Northern Island was estimated to contain 53,056, leaving only 2,280 for the Middle Island. These figures, of course, were not assumed to be any more than such an approximation to the real numbers as the available materials permitted; and there cannot, I apprehend, be any doubt that the Numbers in the Northern Island, (which has been the scene of war, in addition to the other influences believed to be producing a diminution, more or less rapid, in the Native Population), if they could now be made up correctly, would exhibit a great decrease.

Aboriginal Native Population

RELATIVE PROPORTION OF SEXES.

The Number of Males (of European Descent) in New Zealand in December 1864, was (exclusive of the Military) 106,580, or 61.91 per cent, of the whole Population. The Number of Females was 65,578, or 38.09 per cent. The following figures will show for each Province separately the centesimal proportions of Males and Females respectively to the Population of the Province, and the centesimal excess of Males in each Province:—

The Average Proportions of the Sexes in the Colony in December 1861 were, Males, 61.67 per cent. Females 38.33 per cent; Excess of Males, 23.34 per cent. In December 1858, they were, Males, 56.68 per cent.; Females, 43.32 per cent.; Excess of Males, 13.36 per cent. The increased proportion of Males as compared with 1858 may, no doubt, be attributed principally to the great influx of Miners to the Gold Fields of the Colony, very many of whom were unmarried, or had left their Wives and Families in other Countries.

Proportions in 1861 and 1858.

CIVIL OR CONJUGAL CONDITION OF THE PEOPLE.

The General Totals for the Colony, as shown by the Census of 1864, were as follow :—Married Males, 27,482, being 1596 per cent, on the whole Population; and 25.78 per cent, on the Total Number of Males:—Married Females, 25,248, being 14.66 per cent on the whole Population, and 38.50 per cent, on the Total Number of Females : Unmarried Males, (including Widowers and Male Children), 77,711, being 45.14 per cent, on the whole Population, and 72.92 per cent, on the Total Number of Males:—Unmarried Females, (including Widows and Female Children), 39,990, being 23.23 per cent, on the whole Population, and 60.98 per cent, on the Total Number of Females. The Numbers of Widowers and Widows included are, 1,806 Widowers, and 1,809 Widows.

TABLES VI. and VIII.

Deducting from the Totals of "Unmarried," (including Widowers and Widows), the persons under 15 years of age, the Numbers remain, Males 47,904, Females 11,428. The proportions between the Sexes thus shown are, Males 80.74 per cent.; Females 19.26 per cent.

Expressing the information thus arrived at otherwise, it appears that of every 100 of the TOTAL MALE POPULATION, 25.78 were married; 44.95 of the Males aged 15 and upwards, and 27.97 under 15 years of age were unmarried,—(there being 1.30 whose "Condition" was not stated in the Returns); —and of every 100 of the TOTAL FEMALE POPULATION, 38.50 were married; 17.43 Females aged 15 years and upwards, and 43.55 under 15 years of age were unmarried, (there being 0.52 whose "Condition" was not stated.

A similar calculation with respect to the Numbers shown by the Census of 1861 exhibits the following results. Of every 100 of the Total Male Population, 25.86 were married;—38.20 aged 16 years and upwards, and 31.19 under 16 years of age were unmarried, (there being 4.75 whose "Condition" was not stated) :—and of every 100 of the TOTAL FEMALE POPULATION, 36.43 were married; and 15.77 aged 16 years and upwards, and 47.80 under 16 years of age were unmarried.

DEAF AND DUMB; OR BLIND.

The Number of Deaf and Dumb Persons in the Colony is shown in Table No. VI. as 19, viz. Males, 14; Females, 5. The Number in 1861 was 20, viz. 11 Males and 9 Females. The Number of Blind Persons in 1864 was 19,—viz. 14 Males and 5 Females. In 1861 the Number was 21,—viz. 14 Males and 7 Females.

TABLE VI.

DWELLINGS 0F THE PEOPLE.

In December 1864, the Total Number of Houses in the Colony was 37,996, being a Net Increase of 15,598 in the Three Years since the Census of 1861, when the Number was 22,398,—which was an Increase of 9,565 in the Three Years since the Census of 1858. It is to be remarked however, that the Gross Total for 1861 included 3,687 Tents; and the Gross Total for 1864 included 6,742 Tents,—most of these in both years being, as might be supposed, on the Gold Fields. The Tents may be regarded as included in the Numbers of Dwellings having "1 or 2 Rooms," which, in 1864, amounted to 18,841;—the respective Totals for Dwellings of 3 Rooms being 4,612;—of 4 Rooms, 5,352;—of 5 Rooms, 2,451;—and of 6 Rooms or upwards, 6,674.

TABLES VI.,VII,VIII.,IX.

With respect to the Materials of which the Houses were constructed, the Returns show,—Wood, 25,463 in 1864, against 15,139 in 1861, and 10,179 in 1858; Stone or Brick, 1,082 in 1864, against 477 in 1861, and 307 in 1858;—and other materials (including Raupo Houses and the Tents above referred to), 11,451 in 1864, against 6,782 in 1861, and 2,326 in 1858.*

The details of Houses in the Electoral Districts in 1864 will be found in Table No. VIII; and Table No. IX contains a comparative view of the Houses in these Districts in 1861 and 1864.

The proportion of the Population to each Dwelling, calculated on the Census Returns of the respective Years was 4.63 in 1858; 4.42 in 1861; and 4.53 in 1864.

Special Forms were supplied to the Sub-Enumerators for Returns of "Uninhabited Houses," and "Houses Building" in their Sub-Districts. But some uncertainty attaches to the former part of these Returns, it being evident that while, in several instances, they avowedly include Stores or Shops occupied (only) during the day-time, in many other cases there are no means of accurately ascertaining whether or not such Buildings have been counted as "Uninhabited." I have however given the Results, such as they are, in Tables X. and XI. for the Provinces, and also for the Electoral Districts, appending, so far as I could collect them from the Returns, explanatory Notes. The Returns of "Houses Building" are more reliable, and show a Total Number, for the Colony, of 988.

TABLES X.,XI.

ELECTORAL FRANCHISE.

The Total Male Population shown in the Tables for the Electoral Districts, (which it will be borne in mind, do not include the Military Settlers, the Numbers in the Shipping, or the Inhabitants of the Chatham Islands),amounted to 99,180, of whom 62,197 were aged 21 years or upwards. The Total Number on the Rolls as Electors was 19,552 a Number which does not include the Electors for the Electoral District of the Otago Gold Fields, the nature of whose qualification, (defined in "The Miners' Representation Act Amendment Act 1863"), does not admit of the formation of an Electoral Roll in the usual way. The Total Number of Representatives for these Constituencies in the General Assembly was Fifty-seven, including the two Members for the Otago Gold Fields. The proportion of Electors to every hundred .of the Total Male Population was in 1864, 19.71 per cent., against 22 39 per cent, in 1861; and the proportion to every hundred Males of Twenty-one and upwards, was in 1864, 31.43 per cent., against 39.32 percent. in 1861. The Table contains calculations of these proportions for each Electoral District; but although the calculations exhibit correct results as the Electoral Rolls actually stood at the time, the value of the detailed comparison between Electoral Franchise and Population is necessarily qualified by the consideration that, in numerous instances, Electors are non-resident, many having votes in more than one District; to which is to be added, with regard to the Electoral Districts of Taranaki, the special consideration that, in consequence of the War, the great bulk of the Population was congregated in the Town of New Plymouth.

PLACES OF BIRTH.

The particulars of the Places of Birth of the Population are given in detail for the several Provinces, both numerically and centesimally, Tables XIII. and XIV. The following were the proportions for the whole Colony :—England, 33.95; Ireland, 11.80; Scotland, 17.98; Wales, 0.60; New Zealand, 23.95; Australian Colonies, 5.54; Other British Dominions, 1.80; United States of America, 0.65: France, 0.29, Germany, 1.16: Other Foreign Countries, 1.27; At Sea, 0.35; Not Specified, 0.66.

OCCUPATIONS.

Although the Occupations entered in the Census Returns have been compiled in this Office with considerable labour, and in full detail, I have not thought it necessary to amplify, except slightly, the Form of Table in which they were classified for 1861 and 1858. The difficulties pointed out in my Report on the Census of 1861 still impede any attempt to tabulate this branch of the Census in New Zealand "without incurring the risk of showing conclusions which may be misleading in effect, however they may be verbally in accordance with the Schedules." Amongst the causes of this uncertainty continue to be,—"the number of cases in which Settlers pursue more than one occupation; the instances, (perhaps frequent), in which they enter in the Schedules the professions or callings to which they were brought up, or with which they would wish to be identified, rather than those in which they are most habitually engaged, or from which principally they derive their maintenance; the vagueness of many of the descriptions; and the different names given to what may be regarded as really the same business." The Tables will, however, afford a general view of the proportions in which the colonists are engaged in the principal employments and pursuits; and the following Summary will show the comparison between 1864 and 1861:—

RELIGIOUS DENOMINATIONS.

The List of "Religious Bodies" in Schedule D. of the "Marriage Act, 1854," has, as on former occasions, been made the basis of the compilation of the Census Results for 1864, a column being added for the large number returned as "Protestants," without any more distinctive designation,— amounting to a Total of 6,825, or 3.96 per cent, of the Population of the Colony.—The Number not described in any way was 2,618, or 1.52 per cent. on the Population;—a considerably smaller Number than in 1861, when the proportion "Not Described" was 3.69 per cent., (the greater portion of those included, however, having been Gold Diggers in Otago, with respect to whom, in that year, the information was comparatively defective.)

TABLE XVII - XVIII.

The Number "Described Otherwise,"—that is, by designations which could not be brought under any of the headings above specified, was in 1864, 2,220, or 1.29 per cent, of the Population, against 1,284, or 1.30 per cent, of the Population in 1861. This number will be found reduced to 272 Persons by the Note to Table No. XVII., in which I have given the Descriptions found in the Schedules for the remaining 1,948. For these 272 Persons, there were no less than seventy descriptions;—many of which were, no doubt, almost identical in meaning, but all varying more or less in the form of expression. No designation has been omitted, the Persons returned as belonging to which (including men, women, and children,) numbered as many as twenty.

It will be seen by the centesimal calculations in Table No. XVIII. that, according to the Census Schedules, the Church of England had, in December 1864, 42.47 per cent, of the Population of the Colony;—the Presbyterian Churches, 24.43 per cent.;—the Roman Catholic Church, 12.49 per cent.;— the "Wesleyan Methodist Church, 7.26 per cent.;—the Congregational Independents, 2.14 per cent.;—the Baptists, 1.97 per cent.;—the Primitive Methodists, 0.78 per cent.; the Lutherans, T05 per cent.;—the Hebrews, 0.56 per cent.;—and the Society of Friends, 0.08 per cent. "Protestants," not more distinctively described were 3.96 per cent.; "Otherwise Described 1.29 per cent.;—and Not Described in any way, 1.52 per cent.

The subjoined Summary exhibits a comparison between 1861 and 1864, showing for each year, the Numbers of the Population returned as belonging to each of the principal Denominations; the Increase on each in 1864, both in absolute numbers and in the centesimal proportions borne by those numbers to the numbers in 1861; and the centesimal proportion of each Denomination to the Total Population in the respective years :—

EDUCATION.

The Census Results on this most important subject will be found, on the whole, gratifying and encouraging. It is matter of regret, indeed, that in the Provinces of Nelson and Canterbury the Household Forms were, in many instances, so imperfectly filled up with regard to Education that, in the former, there were 1,288, or 1081 per cent of the Population of the Province, and, in the latter, 1,388, or 4.30 per cent, of the Population, with regard to whom the required information was not entered in the Schedules. But deducting these, with 50 in the Province of Auckland and 136 in the Province of Otago, making a Total of 2,862 of the state of whose education no particulars have been supplied,—it appears that, of the Population of the Colony under Fifteen years of age, 18,689,—viz. 9,637 Males, and 9,052Pemales;—and, of the Population of Fifteen and upwards, 104,399, viz.—71,420 Males, and32,979 Females, were able to Read and "Write. Thus, including both Sexes and all Ages, there were 123,088 returned as having attained this degree of education. The proportions, centesimally worked out, are as follow:—Under Fifteen Years:— Cannot Read, Males, 53.18 per cent.; Females, 53.34 per cent.; Read Only, Males 13.43 per cent.; Females, 13.88 per cent.; Read and "Write, Males, 33.39 per cent.; Females, 82.78 per cent.:—Fifteen Years and Upwards :— Cannot Read, Males 3'39 per cent; Females, 3.85 per cent.; Read Only; Males, 2.69 per cent.; Females, 6*48 per cent.; Read and Write; Males 93.92 per cent; Females 89.67 per cent:—Both Sexes and all Ages:—Cannot Read; 20.13 per cent; Read Only 7.17 per cent; Read and Write; 72.70 per cent, —being, in 1864 as compared with 1861, an Increase of 4.03 per cent, on the proportion of the Total Population Able to Read and Write; and 1861 showed an Increase of 5.16 per cent, on the proportion shown by the Census of 1858.

TABLES XIX, XX, XXI.

The Table referred to in the margin shows the Numbers returned as attending School in each Province in December 1864, distinguishing the Sexes, and also showing the Numbers of Males and Females respectively under Five Years of Age, and between Five and Fifteen.

Within what may be considered the "School Going" Period, that is between the Ages of Five and Fifteen, (this being the closest approach to that period afforded by the Census Returns), the Numbers show 15,975, attending Day Schools in 1864, being a proportion of 50.28 per cent, on the Total (of 31,737). Dividing these Numbers according to the Sexes, there was of the Total of Males within those Ages, (which was 16,276,) a Total of 8,360, or 51.36 per cent.;—and of the Total of Females within those Ages, (which was 15,461,) a Total of 7,615, or 49.25 per cent, attending Day Schools. On the whole Population under Fifteen (amounting to 58,369) the proportion was 27.36 per cent.

A comparison with 1861 is subject to the qualification that, in the Census of that year, the classification of Ages which must be adopted, according to the Census forms, was Six to Sixteen (instead of Five to Fifteen, as in 1864). Within those Ages in 1861 there were 18,841 Persons. The Number returned as attending Day Schools was 9,741, being a proportion of 51.70 per cent, on that Total. Of the Total of Males (9,689) a proportion of 52.08 per cent.; and of the Total Females, (9,152) a, proportion of 51.30 per cent. were shown by the Returns.

I had occasion, however, to remark with regard to the Censuses of both 1861 and 1858, that the figures were not assumed to be absolutely accurate, "the columns for School Attendance being those which, in many instances, were least satisfactorily filled up." Although, by a further modification of the headings in the Household Forms, the risk of confusion between children attending "Day Schools," "Sunday Schools Only" and "Both Day and Sunday Schools" has been greatly lessened, still I apprehend that the complete correctness which is so desirable on this important subject cannot be claimed for the figures presented, however carefully they may have been compiled from the original Entries. Notwithstanding any defectiveness in parts of the Returns, however, they bring out clearly the facts that in 1864 there were 15,975 Children attending Day Schools (public or private) in the Colony; and that (including those attending Sunday Schools only and those attending both Day and Sunday Schools) there were 11,599 receiving Sunday School instruction. The Numbers of those receiving education at home cannot of course be brought into the Returns; but the existence, extent, and value of Home Education in the Colony should never be forgotten in any comprehensive estimate of the means in operation for the intellectual and moral training of the rising generation in New Zealand.

LAND FENCED AND UNDER CROP, AND LIVE STOCK.

Full particulars on these branches of the Census information (for both the Provinces and the Electoral Districts), together with comparisons of 1864 with 1861 and 1858, will be found in the series of Tables referred to in the margin. It will be sufficient therefore, in this place, to exhibit the general Results; carrying back the view, however, to 1851, so as to show the steady and rapid progress of the Colony in these elements of prosperity.

TABLES XXIII .to XXVIII.

The Quantity of Land Fenced in 1851 was 30,470 Acres;—in 1858, 235,561 Acres;—in 1861, 409,763 Acres;—and in 1864, 1,072,383 Acres.

LAND Fenced.

The Quantity of Land under Crop in 1851 was 29,140 Acres;—in 1858 141,007 Acres; in 1861, 226,621 Acres;—and in 1864, 382,655 Acres.

The Aggregate Numbers of Live Stock of all kinds, (excluding throughout Poultry, which were not enumerated until 1861), were, in 1851, 299,115; in 1858, 1,728,093;— in 1861 3,038,557;—and in 1864, 5,310,062.

LIVE STOCK

Taking the principal kinds of Live Stock separately, the Numbers were the following:—Horses, in 1851, 2,890;—in 1858, 14,912;—in 1861, 28,275;— and in 1864, 49,409……Cattle, in 1851, 34,787;—in 1858,137,204;—in 1861 193,285;—and in 1864, 249,760 The increase in the Numbers of Sheep, however, is the most remarkable. These were, in 1851, 233,043;—in 1858, 1,523,324;—in 1861, 2,761,383;and, in 1864, 4,937,273.

APPENDIX.

In a series of Pour Tables are given the particulars, ascertained by the Census, respecting the Military Settlers and Colonial Defence Force which were referred to in a Note to Table No. I. These portions of the Population have been included (as was before stated) in all the Tables relating to the Provinces in which they were stationed on the Census night, as well as in the Totals of the Colony; but as this part of the Census was separately taken, (on the plan explained at Page V. of this Report), I have deemed it right to show in the Appendix,—although in a somewhat condensed form—the details of the information so collected.

MILITARY SETTLERS, &c. APPENDIX A,.B,C, and D.,

The Appendix to Part I. is closed by the descriptions of the boundaries of the portions of the Colony included as "Electoral Districts" in a number of the preceding Tables. The descriptions are a Verbatim copy of the Schedule to "The Representation Act 1860," with the addition of the Schedule to "The Representation Act 1862" defining the boundaries of the Districts of "Dunedin and Suburbs North" and "Dunedin and Suburbs South" constituted by that Act.

DESCRIPTIONS OF ELECTORAL DISTRICTS. APPENDIX E.

In connection with the Census of 1864, (as previously in 1858 and 1861), an attempt was made to obtain a variety of additional information relating to subjects on which Schedule B of the Census Act authorises inquiry to be made. But, as on former occasions, while from some places the Returns appeared to be comparatively full and reliable, from others they were not such as to render it practicable to classify and arrange the whole in any adequately comprehensive and accurate shape,—although no small amount of labour has been bestowed on them in this Office. I would, however, repeat the expression of my hope that "the information will ultimately be found of value, not only in itself, but as a guide to further inquiries which may issue in more satisfactory results."

PART II.—GENERAL STATISTICS.

The first Table in this Part is a Summary of the Population, Cultivation and Crops, and Live stock, in the Colony, in December, 1864. The information is, of course, taken from the Census Returns, and is to be found in detail in Part I. of this Volume. But I have thought it well to give a compendious view of certain principal Results of the Census in this place, as an appropriate introduction to the Tables which follow, and which, in consequence of the introduction of this as] So. I., will be found, (up to nearly the end of the Volume), to have the same Numbers as the Tables relating to similar subjects in the Statistics for each of the two last years,—an agreement which may be found convenient for purposes of reference.

POPULATION, &c. TABLE I.

The Tables in this Division of the Volume having been constructed and arranged on the same plan as in previous years, it will not be necessary to extend this Report by more than a statement of the principal Totals, with a few occasional observations,—the Tables themselves including various Summaries, and having Notes appended wherever any explanation appeared to be called for.

The Immigration (over Seas) to New Zealand in 1864 amounted to 20,931 persons, viz. Males, 10,140 Adults, and 2,742 Children; and Females, 5,578 Adults, and 2,471 Children.

IMMIGRATION AND EMIGRATION TABLE II.

The Emigration (over Seas) from the Colony during the year amounted to 12,404 persons, viz. Males, 10,455 Adults, and 424 Children; and Females 1,142 Adults, and 383 Children.

The net excess of Immigration over Emigration for the whole Colony was 8,527. Taking the Provinces separately, the gains from this source of Population were,—Auckland, 7,671: Canterbury, 2,963: Taranaki, 585; Wellington, 168; Nelson, 117; Hawke's Bay, 45; Southland, 19; and Marlborough, 3. "With respect to Otago, the balance turned on the other side, the Emigration from that Province in 1864 having exceeded the Immigration by 3,044 souls.

The following figures show the Immigration and Emigration of the year, classified according to the Countries from which the Immigrants arrived, and to which the Emigrants went.

It thus appears that there was the following Excess of Immigration over Emigration, viewed in relation to Countries,—United Kingdom, 10,086; Other British Ports, 1,201; Foreign States, 27; while, on the other hand, the Emigration to the Australian Colonies exceeded the Immigration from those Colonies by 2,757.

The Arrivals and Departures between the several Ports of New Zealand are shown in the usual form. But the Table, though correct as a compilation from the Returns of the Emigration Officers, is inadequate as a guide to the actual migration between the different Provinces, not only because many Passengers are believed to have gone on board after vessels had cleared at the Customs, or to have been taken up at various points on the Coast where there are no Emigration Officers, (facts by which the Excess of Arrivals over Departures is accounted for) but also because it necessarily fails to show in any way the extent of overland migration.

MIGRATION BETWEEN PORTS OF N. ZEALAND. TABLE III.

In 1864, the Total Number of Births registered in New Zealand was 6,501, viz. 3,334 Males, and 3,167 Females, being an Increase of 1,386, viz. 693 Males, and 693 Females over the Number in 1863.

BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES TABLES IV. to VII.

The Total Number of Deaths registered in 1864 was 2,921, viz. 1,758 Males and 1,163 Females; being 938, viz. 540 Males, and 398 Females more than in 1863. Of the Deaths in 1864, 781, viz. 443 Males and 333 Females, were under one year of age; 279, viz. 148 Males and 131 Females, between one and two years:—and 377, viz. 181 Males, and 196 Females between two and five; making a total of 1,437 (777 Males and 660 Females), or 49.19 per cent, of the whole under five years. The General Total of Deaths includes Two Hundred and Eighteen (viz. 195 Males and 23 Females), which were occasioned, not by disease, but by Drowning and other external causes.

The excess of Births over Deaths in 1864 was 3,580; viz. 1,576 Males, and 2,004 Females. The Total excess of registered Births over registered Deaths in the Ten years of which a Summary is given in Table V. was 21,402; viz. 10,015 Males, and 11,357 Females.

The Number of Marriages solemnized in the Colony in 1864 was 1,878, being an Increase of 393 as compared with 1863. The Tables show the respective Numbers of Marriages in the several Provinces during each year since "The Marriage Act 1854" came into operation, and the Numbers solemnized in each year by Officiating Ministers of the different Religious Bodies, and by District Registrars.

TABLE VI-VII

Six Tables are occupied by Shipping. The first two show the Numbers, Tonnage, and Crews of Vessels Entered Inwards and Cleared Outwards at the several Ports of New Zealand during the year; exhibiting a Total Inwards of 1,117 Vessels, of 426,004 Tonnage, and a Total Outwards of 1,089 Vessels, of 433,253 Tonnage. The Number of Vessels Inwards was 87 less, but the Tonnage was 6,069 more than in 1863.Outwards the Vessels number 5 less, but the Tonnage was 38,588 more than in 1863.

TABLES VIII-IX

The next two Tables show the particulars of Vessels, Tonnage, and Crews classified according to the "Countries whence Arrived" and "Countries for which Cleared" and the following two show the "Nationality" of tables the Vessels, Inwards and Outwards. From the former it appears that, of the Total of Vessels Inwards, 148, of 102,679 Tonnage, arrived from the United Kingdom; 870 Vessels, of 295,640 Tonnage, from the Australian Colonies and other British Possessions; and 99 of 27,685 Tonnage, from Foreign Countries (including the Southern "Whale Fishery). From the latter it appears that, of this Total, 311 Vessels, of 187,749 Tonnage, were British; 679, of 179,305 Tonnage, Colonial; 86, of 43,165 Tonnage, American; 8, of 2,669 Tonnage, French; 7, of 4,271 Tonnage, Dutch; 8, of 2,475 Tonnage, German; 5, of 1,619 Tonnage, Chilian; 2, of 1,035 Tonnage, Norwegian:—the remainder being made up of Hanoverian, Hamburgh, Bremen, Danish, Swedish, and Tahitian Vessels, as specified in the Table.

TABLES X-XI.

TABLES XII,XIII.

Tables showing the Numbers of Registered Vessels belonging to Ports of New Zealand, (though placed in another part of the Volume), may be conveniently noticed here. The Total Number, in December, 1864 was 423 Vessels, of 22,573 Tonnage,—against 343 Vessels, of 15,189 Tonnage, in December, 1863. Of the Total, 267 Vessels, of 11,623 Tonnage, belonged to the Port of Auckland.

REGISTERED VESSELS. TABLES XXIX, XXX.

The Total Value of the Imports of the Colony in 1864 amounted to £7,000,655, against £7,024,674, in 1863, showing a Decrease of £24,019, or 0.34 per cent. In connection with this small decrease, however, it is to be remembered that the amount of Imports in 1863 was £2,398,592, or 51.84 percent., above that of the Imports in 1862; and that the amount for 1862 showed an Increase of .2,132,271, or 85.50 per cent, over 1861. Considerable variations will be found in the comparative figures for the several Provinces for 1863 and 1864, as will appear from the following statement of the Increase or Decrease in each Province in the latter year:—

AucklandIncrease, £1,260,992, or129.95 per cent.
TaranakiIncrease, £70,416, or143.61 per cent.
WellingtonDecrease, £20,631, or4.94.per cent.
Hawke's BayIncrease, £47,432, or93.52per cent.
NelsonDecrease, £44,905, or13.83 per cent.
MarlboroughIncrease, £4,144, or18.97per cent.
CanterburyDecrease, £16,449, or1.82 per cent.
OtagoDecrease, £964,459, or28.16 per cent.
SouthlandDecrease, £360,969, or41.64 per cent.

IMPORTS AND EXPORTS.

TABLES XIV-XXVIII. IMPORTS

The Total Value of Exports from New Zealand in 1864, amounted to £3,401,667, against 3,485,405 in 1863, being a Decrease of 83,738, or 2.40 per cent. Here again a comparison of 1863 with 1862 and 1861 may appropriately be introduced. The Increase in the Total Value of Exports in 1863 was 1,062,671, or 43.86 per cent, as compared with 1862; and the Amount in 1862 was 1,052,487, or 76.81 in advance of 1861.

EXPORTS.

Referring more particularly to the two great articles of Export,—Gold, and Wool—it appears that there was a Decrease in the Total Value of Gold exported in 1864, as compared with 1863, amounting to 573,876, or 23.59 per cent the Totals in the respective years having been, in 1864, 1,857,847, and in 1863, 2,431,723. Of the Total Value of Gold exported in 1864, the following were the amounts of the Produce of the Gold Fields in the respective Provinces:—Auckland, 10,552; Nelson, 55,841; Marlborough, 96,241; Canterbury, 5,670: Otago, 1,689,543.

GOLD.

The Value of Wool exported from the Colony in 1864, was 1,070,997, wool. against 830,495 in 1863, being an Increase of 240,502, or 28.95 per cent. The Increase in 1863 was 156,269, or 23.17 per cent, as compared with 1862.

WOOL

Tables XVIII and XIX show the Details of Imports and Exports at details of the several Ports of the Colony in 1864; and the Nine following Tables contain Comparative Summaries presenting compendiously the Totals of the principal articles of Export in 1864 as compared with previous years, Separate Tables of this description are appropriated to Gold, Grain, Kauri Gum, Oil, Potatoes, Timber, and "Wool, distinguishing the Exports from the several Provinces. Two preceding Tables (XVI.,XVII.,) give this information in a still more condensed form, showing the Total Value of Imports and Exports for the successive years from 1853 to 1864 inclusive.

(TABLES XX-XXVIII.)

TABLES XVI-XVIL

In 1864, the Customs Revenue amounted to £592,346, against £592,050 revenue of in 1863, being an Increase of £296. The advance in 1863, however, was £192,614, or 48.22 per cent; which was an advance over 1861 of £138,573, or 53.12 per cent.

REVENUE OF COLONY TABLES XXXI-XXXVII.

The Total Ordinary Revenue in 1864 amounted to £815,676, being an Increase of £73,172, or 9.85 per cent as compared with 1863. In 1863, there was an Increase as compared with 1862, of £234,172, or 46.06 per cent.

The Total Territorial Revenue in 1864 was £714,770, being an Increase of £190,366, or 36.30 per cent as compared with 1863. In 1863, this branch of Revenue exhibited a Decrease of 82,426 or 13.58 per cent, as compared with 1862; but the Territorial Revenue of 1862 showed an Increase of £259,476 or 74.70 per cent as compared with 1861.

The Total of the Revenue, both Ordinary and Territorial, amounted in 1864 to £1,530,446, being an Increase, as compared with 1863, of £263,538 or 20.80 per cent. The Total in 1863 showed an Increase, as compared with 1862, of £151,746 or 13.60 per cent. The Total in 1862 showed an Increase, as compared with 1861, of £443,662 or 66.07 per cent.

The following Table presents a comparative view of the Revenue, Ordinary and Territorial, of the several Provinces, in 1863 and 1864, marking the centesimal Increase or Decrease for each Province in the latter year.

On that date the Total Amount authorised to be borrowed by the General and Provincial Governments was £6,329,000*. The Total Amount of Debentures in Circulation was 2,219,450.The Total Amount of Sinking Funds accrued was £89,724 19s.3d.

The First of these shows the Waste Lands sold, or other wise disposed of in the several Provinces during the year 1864. The Second contains a Summary of the Totals for each Province, during the entire period from April 1856 to December 1864. The Third, by a classification relating to time rather than to locality, shows the Totals for the whole Colony during each year of the period included.

APPENDIX.

The Appendix to Part II. is wholly devoted to Meteorological Tables, commencing with a Comparative Table of the Climate in 1864 at a Number of the principal Places in New Zealand; after which, in a series of Eight Tables, are given Meteorological Observations in that year at Mongonui, Auckland, Taranaki, Napier, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, and Dunedin. The anticipation which I expressed in my Report on the Statistics of 1863—(that "the Meteorological Returns for 1864 would be found more complete and satisfactory")—has thus been realised to a gratifying extent, these Tables containing fuller information on this interesting subject than was available for 1863 or any previous year.

Table 5.1. COMPARATIVE TABLE SHOWING THE POPULATION (OF EUROPEAN DESCENT) IN THE SEVERAL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS OF THE COLONY OF NEW ZEALAND, IN DECEMBER 1861 AND DECEMBER 1864, WITH THE INCREASE OR DECREASE SHOWN BY THE CENSUS OF 1864.

* When the Census of 1861 was taken, the territory now included in the Electoral Districts of {"Bruce," "Dunedin and Suburbs North," and "Dunedin and Suburbs South," was included within two Electoral Districts, viz., "Bruce" and "City of Dunedin;" but by the "Representation Act 1862" the Suburban Districts of Dunedin were detached from Bruce and added to Dunedin City to form two Electoral Districts. As the exact comparison cannot therefore be conveniently exhibited in the above Table, the figures for the territory included in the three Districts named in the columns for 1864 are presented as one total for 1861. It may be stated here, however, that according to the Census of 1864, the Population of what in 1861 constituted the Electoral District of "Bruce," was 17,336, showing a decrease in 1864 of 1,256; and the Population of what in 1861 was the "City of Dunedin," was 15,264 (exclusive of shipping); showing for 1864 an increase of 9,414.

Chapter 12. STATISTICS OF NEW ZEALAND, 1864.—PART I., CENSUS.—No. 12.

Table 12.1. TABLE SHOWING, FOR EACH ELECTORAL DISTRICT OF THE COLONY OF NEW ZEALAND, THE NUMBERS OF THE MALE POPULATION, AS ASCERTAINED BY A CENSUS TAKEN IN DECEMBER, 1864—THE NUMBER OF REPRESENTATIVES IN THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY—THE NUMBER OF ELECTORS—AND THE PROPORTION OF ELECTORS TO THE MALE INHABITANTS.

ELECTORAL DISTRICTS.TOTAL MALE POPULATION.NUMBER OF MALES AGED 21 YEARS AND UPWARDS.NUMBER OF REPRESENTATIVES.NUMBER OF ELECTORS.PROPORTION OF ELECTORS TO EVERY 100 OF TOTAL MALE POPULATION.PROPORTION OF ELECTORS TO EVERY 100 MALES OF 21 AND UPWARDS.

The value of the Columns showing the Proportion of Electors to the Population is qualified by the fact that, in numerous instances, Electors are non-resident—many having votes in more than one district. As respects the Electoral Districts of Taranaki, there is, moreover, the special consideration that, in consequence of the war, the great bulk of the population of the Province has been congregated in the town of New Plymouth.

The Military Settlers, &c, are not included in the above Table. The numbers in the Shipping in the various Harbours have also been deducted from the Population of the respective Electoral districts.

* The Electoral District of the Otago Gold Fields (returning two Members, which make the House of Representatives consist of fifty-seven Members instead of fifty-five, as above) is not included in the foregoing Table, as from the nature of the qualification of the Electors (defined in "The Miners' Representation Act Amendment Act, 1863") no Electoral Roll for it can be formed in the usual way. But, the Population of the Gold Fields in Otago at the time of taking the Census (December, 1864) was as follows:—Number of Males aged 21 years and upwards, 11,838 (included in the above numbers for Hampden, Bruce, and Wallace); Total Male Population, 13,276. Females, 2,375; Total Population, 15,651.

In addition to these, the Schedules show 12,126 described as engaged in "Domestic Duties," but the Numbers so described are evidently very incomplete, no such Entry being found in some of the Provinces.

(1) The Denominations in this Table, (so far as "Society of Friends"), are classified according to the order in the Schedule of "Religious Bodies" appended to "The Marriage Act, 1854;" but Presbyterians have been brought under one comprehensive Heading, there being reason to believe that, in very many instances, the Householders, when filling the Census Forms, did not regard the distinctive designations of the several Presbyterian Churches. The actual Numbers, as compiled from the Census Schedules, are respectively,—Church of Scotland, 6,717; Free Church of Scotland, 4,905; Presbyterians (not distinctively described), 30,436;—Total, 42,058.

(2) The Numbers under the Heading "Otherwise Described" are made up as follows :—Christians, (simply so described), 348, viz.

In this Table, as in No. 2, the Totals in the columns headed "Excess" are not the preceding figures added up, but the net Excess of Arrivals or Departures shown by the Returns for the Port or Province.

The Excess of the General Total of Arrivals over the General Total of Departures, (amounting to 1,218,) is to be accounted for chiefly by the numbers of Passengers who went on board after vessels had cleared at the Customs, or were taken up at various. points on the Coast, where there are no Emigration Officers.
