THE tables given below are mostly compiled from the records in the office of the Secretary of State, and from those in the office of the State superintendent of public instruction, at Albany. The statistics here given present a most comprehensive view of the chief industrial interests of the county of Saratoga, as well as of its progressive development in population and wealth since its early settlement more than a hundred years ago.
