THE ROYAL FORESTS. From the Crown Land Commissioners' Fourth Report. The whole quantity of forest land now belonging to the Crown, either in fee or subject to the rights of common, is 122,622 acres: and although the different measures taken with regard to each forest have been noticed in former reports, we think it will be convenient here to bring together, in one statement, the present extent and state of all that property ; showing what has been acquired for the growth of timber; and what further quantity may probably be obtained for the same purpose. The particulars are as follow, viz.
