CENSUS OF QDEBN8I,A.ND-SEPTEM- BER 1, 1871. THE Cerium Return, with the Registrar General's Report thereupon, reached us by last mail. It forms a work of nearly 260 foolscap pases, and is perhaps the roost elaborate and bulky State paper ever issued in the colony. We hero propose to present to the reader some of jt» most salient points. " The proportion of the sexes in the colony," says the Registrar Genera), "as a whole, is very nearly three males to two females ; but the pro- portion under twenty-one years of age is much more equal viz., in round numbers 21 to 22|. In the districts of Brisbane and Ipswich the proportion of females appears actually to exceed that of males. In other districts containing centres of population, such as Drayton and Toowoomba, Rockhampton, Dalby, Mary- borough, and the country districts of West and Bait Moreton, the disparity is noteo great ; but in the outlying districts the majority is very high, and in some excessively so." The disproportion of sexes...
