Note. — Up to 1850 only the aggregate valuations in the several counties were reported to the State officers, and front 1852 to 1857, inclusive, a few counties returned only the aggregates; hence the details of real estate and personal property valuations aro not complete for those years. In 1887 and 1868 the details of valuation are not entirely correct, owing to chancres by the operation of the equalization law. Since 1808 the valuations are as equalized. The total valuations in each of the several years are cornot and official.
The valuations for 1873 as equalized are largely in excess of any previous year. In 1874 some changes were made in the manner of equalizing the assessments, resulting in reducing all the valuations, especially those of railroad property.
The State debt, as noted, represents it as it stood on the 1st of January in each of the several years to 1869; in 1869 and 1870, as itstood December 1; in 1871, as it stood December31; from 1878 to 1879, as it stood December 1
