The analyses of the statistics for 1863 were computed from the returns made to this office by the county auditors. The aggregates thus returned have not always corresponded with the aggregates returned to the State Auditor. The first column of Table XXIV., page cxxvii, was taken from the State Auditor's aggregates, but

per centages and the seven other columns of the same table were computed from the aggregates on pages cxxx and cxxxi, as returned to this office. The difference in these returns is not sufficiently great to affect the per centages to any considerable extent. Respectfully submitted,
