Wffl;lfoeti^ (T3XjjU9SB.) Tra production and consussption of sugar have increased enormously in the ; last thirty -yeats. Ifr. GinW, the Statuticai Seeratary of <*h* Board of Trade, in a recent Barliuiratary re- port, renatrks that, "excluding India and CTiina the increase in production ia from 1,423,000 iona in 1853-55 to over 4,(100,000 tona at ;th» JpitiMt; fcme. The annual consumption of sugar in the United Kingdom is now up "to 1,OS3,000 tons, or 681b per head, its use in 1840 haring only attained the pro- portion of 151b per head. The annual value of the product now is £30,000,000 sterling, which ia Just half the amount spent on bread with wheat at 40«.per quarter." To " this ' it ; may be ' added that the worlds consumption:of. sugar increases at the rate of 100,000 tons a year. But an enquiry of vital interest to capitalists and farmers is-how is this enormous and augmenting quantity of the saccharine commodity supplied ? It emanates from two sources; being derive...
