*Note.  In reference to Burglaries, it is necessary to state that, the large increase shown in 1880, over the average of the previous 5 years occurs principally in the Metropolitan Police District, and this, it is stated by the Chief Commissioner in his Return for 1878, is partly owing to an increase in this class of Crime in the Metropolis, and partly to an altered classification of offences.
