    it will be seen that the more recent result is an advance on the former figures so far as we are concerned, for the reason that the increase on the ordinary properties is greater:—

    COLLECTION OF RATES. The collection of the rates, we have reason to believe, has been carried out luring the last half-year in a more expeditious manner than formerly, judging by the amount of arrears outstanding on the Poor Rate at the end of each half-year, which we give hereunder:—

    We think it only fair to submit that whilst the expenses tor the maintenance of the Parish and the Relief of the Poor, together with the contributions of the Central Authorities, continue to increase in the proportion they recently have, it prevents our levying the rates on a lower scale which we should in the interests of the ratepayers desire to effect.
