To ascertain the Demand of New-York call the present stock 1000; and say, As 8488, Amount of stock entire, is to 1000, so is 2798—Demand of New York on stock entire, to 3293;

; that is so many thousandth parts of stock reduced.

On the same principles the Demand of New Jersey is 1927 of such parts.

And the Demand of Pennsylvania is 4773.
