REMARKS. 1.--The population of the islands in the British seas not having been ascertained in 1801 and 1811, no comparative statement thereof can be given; the existing population of those islands when enumeraled in the year 1821, appears to have been as follows ;-riz, in the Isle of Mann, 40,084 ; in the island of Guernsey (and its dependant islels) 20,827 ; in the island of Jorsoy, 28,600; in the Soilly isles, 2,614:in all these islands, 92,122 inhabitants.

2.-The number of males ascribed to the army, navy, &c. in May 1821, is the nearest estimate, that can at present be made, of the regular army, the artillery, the Davy, and seamen employed in registered merchant vessels. -None of these classes can bo asoribed lo particular counties, nor consequently taken into account in the foregoing comparative statement, otherwise than in the general total; nor properly in that, without making allowance for the large number of foreigners (perhaps 100,000) employed as merchant seamen during the war, and consequently taken into account in 1811 :-nor without considering, that many soldiers and sailors are atttributable to Ireland; which consideration would operate proportionally upon the larger number of men serving in 1811, as compared with the smaller number in 1821. In order therefore to avoid the uncertainty hereby indicated, the rate of increase bas been separately calculated on the respective numbers of females only, viz.

Females

5,492,354

14 or 14.02

6,262,716

or 15.82

7,253,728

And the absolute increase of population in Great Britain (if measured by that of females only) appears to have been about one million and a half in the first period, two millions in the second period.

3.-The seven outstanding returns, noticed in the last column of the foregoing statement, aro oonfidently expocled, and are known lo be so small in numerical amount, as not to affect the rate of increase in any county, except perhaps in Argyllshire. The voluntary return to the question concerning the ages of persons, extends to eightpinths of the lolal population.

4-The parish register relurns of England and Wales are complete, except that in the county of Essex one return cannot be obtained ; two returns are expected from the county of Hants, and three returns from North Wales.

5. -The larger abstracts both of tho enameration and parish register returns, will be presented to parliament when the respective returps shall bave been completed, and the work finally revised, 8th February, 1822.

JOHN RICKMAN.
