The results of tho inquiries of the
tenth census, which have been con
ducted this year by experts and
scientists who have devoted, in many
cases, years to the subjects upon which
the Superintendent has called upon
them to report, have so far turned out
to be, in all industries, fargreaterthan
the most sanguine expectations. Tho
Inter Oixan has already shown that
the total cereal product of the country
has increased more than 100 per cent;
that our iron and steel industries, un
der a wise protective tariff, have near
ly doubled; and now comes Special
Agent Ililgard, who has had charge of
the cotton statistic:, and informs us
that under tho inlluenco of free labor
tlie cotton product of the Southern
States has increased nearly DO per cent.
In I.s7() the cotton product of the
country was :5,01 1,!537 bales. Tho cen
sus shows the crop of 1870 to have
been 3,7i50,H08, an increase of 2,702,011
