The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 4. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 4 April 1884
fífie f¡útth Rastrallan. FRIDAY EVENING, APRDZi 4. BY the latest files of Government papers to hand we have received one entitled "Australasian Statistics for the year 1882," (compiled by thc Government statist of Victoria), which contains some very interesting instances of the differ- ent measures of progress made since the. foundation of the various colonies. To show, in a measure the comparitive position held by South Australia up to the end of the year mentioned, we need only review the items of most import- ance in the above combination of facts. Beginning with population, we find that Victoria holds the lead with a total of 906,225 souls, New South Wales coming next with bl 7,468, New Zealand follow- ing with 517,707, and South Australia niling fourth position with 293,509, heading Queensland by 45,254, Tasmania and Western Australia being altogether out of comparison. It would seem by these figures that the old gold days of Victoria have proved of lasting benefit to that colo...
