Abstract

When we read of twenty thousand immigrants arriving in
the north-west of Canada in a single month, it seems hard
to account for the very slow increase of the population in
Tasmania, especially when her many advantages are considered.
It is the object of this paper to enumerate these advantages.
In doing so, it will be necessary to state some things
that are self-evident to us; but it is good to recognise the
advantages of the land we live in, and, if the knowledge can
be communicated to others, it may tend to the success of
the object in view, namely, to increase our present population
of about one hundred and eighty thousand people very
considerably.
