Abstract

Since the date of the last published statistics of this colony
in 1849, upwards of four years ago, the changes that have
taken place in the fortunes of Australasia, by the magnificent
gold discoveries in New South Wales and Victoria, and
slightly shared in by Tasmania, have invested the authentic
records of the progress made by even the smallest and
weakest of the group with an interest, not only in the eyes
of those locally concerned, but in the estimation of the whole
civilized world. Secondary as she may be in point of size, and comparatively
insignificant as she certainly is in extent of population,
yet it may be affirmed that, of all the colonies planted in
this hemisphere, Tasmania more fully displays the verisimilitude
which would justify the appellation of the Britain
of the South.
