tgi)3ps Ea#uartt tan, Friday, 15t.h May, 1857. CENSUS OF GIPPS LAND. On a late occasion we intimated our be lief that the population returns for the dis-1 triot of Gipps Land, collected on the 29th March last, would shew a large increase in the inhabitants, as compared * with the number of residents wlien the last census whs taken, three years, ago, and we have now the gratification of publishing tlie fol lowing summary,' which exhibits a total addition of .1678 souls. This increase presents undeniable evidence that our dis trict is nppreciated as a place of residence by those who have ever seen it or been made aware of the advantages it presents to settlers over almost every other portion of the Colony y and we are fully persuaded that as it becomes more generally known, population will flow in apace, and the pet ty jealousies and unseemly contentions by which our onward course has been so much retarded will finally and forever disappear: from our midst, and then progress and prosp...
