Description

Excerpt from Tables Shewing the Progress of the Shipping Interest of the British Empire, United States, and France: Compiled From Parliamentary Papers and Other Sources The compiler submits the following tables to the public, in the hope, that they may be useful to merchants, tmderwriters, and ship-owners; they are the result of having his attention particularly directed to the alleged increasing loss of merchant ships. The investigation was commenced in the session of 1843, by reference to, and comparison of official returns in each year, and results were arrived at, which seemed to throw very considerable doubt upon the correctness of the state ments then so confidently made, as to the increasing annual loss of merchant ships.
