THE LAST PATENT OFFICE REPORT. In taking leave of the able gentleman who has presided for four years over this department of government, we can only express the hope that his successor will prove as efficient and energetic, and carry out the good works that have been begun.

We take the following interesting tables, &c., from Mr. Burke, who says: “ This office is under great obligation to the intelligent gentlemen who have so promptly and fully responded to its inquiries. And particularly is it indebted to J. D. B. De Bow, Esq., of New Orleans, Charles Cist, Esq., of Cincinnati, B. P. Johnson, Esq., of Albany, M. B. Batchem, Esq., of Columbus, Ohio, J. Delafield, of Seneca county. N. Y., T. Marshall Painter, Esq., of Lucerne, Pa., and N.J. Wythe, Esq., of Cambridge, Mass., for interesting and valuable communications."

Statistical Bureaus. In the pursuit of its statistical investigations, this office has keenly felt the want of means for obtaining accurate and reliable information concerning the great industrial interests of the country. No provision has been made by the general government for obtaining such information, except in relation to the foreign commerce of the country; and but very few of the States have adopted measures for obtaining authentic information in relation to their industrial interests. Massachusetts and Louisiana are in advance of most other States in their legislation upon these subjects. In the former State, very full returns are obtained, in small periods of a few years, if not annually, of its industry and resources; and in the latter, a bureau of statistics has been established, at the head of which has been placed one of her most intelligent and talented citizens.

A most interesting view of the vast resources of this great republic, would be annually exhibited, if all the States should follow the example of Louisiana and Massachusetts. The statesman and legislator, to whom the people commit the destinies of their common country, would then have at their hands ample material to aid them in the intelligent discharge of their momentous and responsible duties, without which they are like blind men feeling their way in the dark.

Cultiration of Sugar Cane, etc. As a commencement of this system of investigation, I employed an intelligent and able gentleman, Charles L. Fliechmann, Esq., to visit Louisiana during the last season, to make inquiry into the condition and progress of the sugar culture in that State. He bas accomplished, in part, the object for which he was sent, and has presented to me a most valuable report, which will be found in the appendix to the agricultural report, marked No. 2.
