* The Quantity and Declared Value of Wrought Copper as stated in the Account for 1849 (year ended 5th January, 1850), do not agree with the quantity and value exported in that year as now stated. The discrepancy is occasioned by an error of classification, a part of the Exports of 1849 having properly belonged to the head of Sheet Copper, to which head it is applied in this Account.
