Immigration and Emigration

Immigration and Emigration.

16. More people come to Victoria than to any other of the Australasian colonies, and more depart therefrom than from any of the other colonies. In 1879 the arrivals numbered 44,384, and the departures 39,212; in the eleven years ended with that year, 378,085 persons came to, and 314,376 persons left the colony. The net gain by immigration during the period was 63,709. Immigrants to Victoria must pay their own passages, as of late years it has not been the policy of the colony to foster immigration by means of State assistance.
