NOTE.— The above table shows the average prices for each month, of flour per two hundred pounds, and wheat, barley and oats, per pound, from January 1st, 1852, to December 31st, 1857, at San Francisco. As these articles of consumption were mostly imported for the first few years after the influx of population into California, foreign products have been taken as the standard during that period, In flour, Chili has been quoted, in wheat, barley and oats, those of eastern importations, until February, 1854, when the domestic productions of both flour and grain are substituted. In several instances we have been unable to determine the current value of flour, and have requoted Chili; such changes are indicated by an asterisk, (*). -[ED.

III.–POPULATION.

1. POPULATION OF CALIFORNIA. The population of California in 1831, was estimated at 23,025,* and in January, 1849, at 26,000,+ viz: Californians, 13,000; Americans, 8,000; Foreigners, 5,000.

The returns of the National Census of 1850, exhibit a population of 117,538,6 and the State Census of 1852, of 264,435. The ascertainments and estimates of these enumerations are believed to be very incomplete, in consequence of the fluctuating character of the people and the difficulties which then existed to prevent a thorough canvass of the State.

The following estimate of the present population of California has been prepared from the information obtained through official sources and a careful investigation of the different classes of residents included therein:

Returns of the County Assessors of the citizens between the ages of

eighteen and forty-five, liable to military duty, to the Quar-
termaster-General of the State, 1857, (estimated in part).....

183,000

}

Citizens exempt from military duty, viz:
Over forty-five.

. 25,000
Disabled, etc
Females, white (Census of 1852, 22,193).
Children between four and eighteen years of age, number returned

to the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, 1857... Children under four years.

| 538,002 * Forbes' Upper and Lower California.

+ Senators Gwin and Fremont, 1850. # The Official Returns of the Census of 1850 make the population 92,597. See Journals of the Legislature, 1851, page 743.

$ This estimate, although large, is believed to be less than the actual number of Indians in the State. See Indian Reservations.

| The population of the United States for 1856, is estimated, by Hon. James Guthrie, at 26,964,312. The vote cast at the Presidential election, 1856, was about 4,100,000, being an average of three votes for each twenty inhabitants. Taking this result as a basis, and estimating the population of California thereby by the vote of the same election 110,223, the population would amount to 734,820. This
