From the Ulchinond Whig, Feb. 9.
The Ueimus of 1800.
The tables showing the population of all the
States, according to the census taken last year,
havo been published. At that time the aggre
gate population of the United States amount
ed to 31,641,977, an increase of 8,449,991 as
compared with 1850. This amount was divided
into free men, 27,642,624, and slaves, 3,999,353,
the former showing during the last decade, an
increase of thirty-eight and the latter of twen
ty five per cent.; the former, of course, being
materially increased by immigration from
abroad. As respects the different sections of
the Union, the figures stood thus :
/ Free States, 18,802,121
/ Slave States, 12,433,278
/ TeriikrUi, Ac., 406,344
The first shows a total gain of 5,347,651 in
habitants since 1850; the second 2,820,539, in
cluding 795,040 slaves; the third have advan
ced three hundred and thirty per cent.; but
from these in to be deducted Kansas, (now a
State,) with a population of 143,642, less the
number of settlors near Pike’s Peak. The Dis
trict of Columbia contains 75,321, which shows
again of more than fifty per cent over 1850.
The State which has made the leist growth
in population is Vermont, showing a gain of
only 1,707. New York shows the largest aggre
gate gain, having added 754,169 during thede-
cade; but in respect to ratio of iucrease, Cali
fornia stands highest, having more than quad
rupled her population. Iowa has two hundred
and fifty percent, more than in 1850; Texas,
one hundred and eighty; Arkansas, one hun
dred and fifteen; Wisconsin, one hundred and
fifty; Illinois, nearly one hundred; Michigan,
fully ninety. Tbo others are all below fifty
per cent, of an increase, except Minnesota and
Oregon, which are omitted as uot having been
States in 1850. The former has now 172,196
inhabitants, aud the latter 52,566.
In the Northeastern States the growth of
population is confined nearly altogether to the
coast, the lower courses of the three principal
risers, the four East and West Railroad lines,
with the iron and coal regions of Pennsylva
nia and Maryland.
Of the Slave States Delaware and Maryland
show a slight decrease in the aggregate of their
slave population of which the former has only
1,805, against 2,290 in 1850, while the latter Las
85,382, against 90,368—a loss of nearly five
thousand. Missouri has increased her slave
population thirty-two per cent.; but in the
meantime her white population bus nearly
less than oue fourth of the population of the
Uniou, it has now but little less than one third
of it. We have included Missouri, although it
is a slave Slate, because of its geographical po
sition, and because its commercial and indus
trial interests are almost identical with the
States which bound it on the East, West and
North. It gained a greater increase of popula
tion from 1850 to 1860 than any other slave-
holding State, and it now contains more inhab
itants than any of them except Virginia, al
though in 1850 it was surpassed by Kentucky,*
Teunessee, Alabama, and North Carolina. It
presents a very striking contrast with South
Carolina, which, in 1850, contained but 13,457
fewer inhabitants. But the latter baa gained
an increase of only 46,864, while tbe increase
of the former has been 519,170.
The total number of slaves iu 1850, was 3,-
200,412, and in 1860, as abovejtated, 3,999,353.
The increase has been almost, exactly at the
ratio of 25 per cent.; and while some of the
States have fallen short of this ratio, others
have barely maintained it, and others again
have far exceeded it.
In the first of these classes the State of Vir
ginia, North Carolina, South Carolina,Tennes
see, Kentucky and Georgia, may be ranked,
their increase being as follows:
Slaves in 1850. Slaves in 1860.
Virginia, 472,528 495,826
North Carolina, 288,548 328,377
South Caroliua, 374,9S4 407,185

la the second class may be ranked the States
of Alabama, Louisiana and Missouri, vis:
Alabama, 342,892 435,473
Louisiana,.. 244,809 312,186
Missouri, 89,472 115,619
In the third class are Florida, Mississippi,
Arkansas aud Texas, viz;
Florida, 39,309 63,809
Mississippi, 309,878 479,607
Arkansas, 47,100 109,077
Texas, 56,161 184,956
The increase of Missouri over tbe prevailing
ratio will surprise those who have thought that
Missouri was tending towards emancipation.
The result ia in part, no doubtattributable to the
gration she has attracted from some sec
tions of the South, as well as from the North. In
to Florida, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas, a
large number of slavea have evidently been ta
ken, and in the internal slave trade traffic they,
with Louisiana and Ala 1 auia.may be, therefore,
considered importing States, while Delaware,
Maryland, Virgiuia, North Carolina, South
Carolina and Kentucky, are better prepared to
act as exporting States. Georgia falls very lit
tle short of the prevailing ratio, and has,
therefore, probably shown little disposition to
buy or sell slaves to or from the other slave
The number of persons who have migrated
from free to slave States, and vice versa, are not
yet published; but the table will be an inter
eating one, in view of the secesaion movement.
In 1850, the proportion of the former was more
thsu two to one of the latter.
No section has increased so rapidly as the
Northwest, which bids fair speedily to become
the controlling region of the whole oountry, as
will be seen by the following statement:
Pop. in 1850. Pop. in 1860. Increase*
Ohio, 1,980,329 2,377,917 397,588
Indiana 988,476 1,356,802 362,386
A correspondent of tbe Columbus Times,
writing from Fort Barrancas, Jan. 80th, gives
the following description of that city, towards
which so many eyes are turned at this mo
Pensacola is an ancient town, having been
founded at an early period by tbe Spaniards.
Tbe houses are built in the olden style, with
low narrow windows, and projecting roofs,
which, in some cases run into a shelter across
the sidewalk. The old and dingy shops kept
by creoles in the same manner they were an
hundred years ago, are very suggestive of tbe
pent, and around them more old Spanish le
gends cling, than ivy berries on tbe wall. The
plan is regular and the streets quite wide, al
though narrow when compared with the streets
of Columbus. It contains several churches, a
market-house, three newspaper offices and a
Custom House. This latter is new and deci
dedly the best in the city. It is a port of en
try, the capitol of Escambia county, and situ
ated upon the Gulf of Mexico, sixty-four miles
from Mobile, in an easterly direction, and one
hundred and eighty miles in a direct line west
from Tallahassee. Pensacola bay has rare
properties as a harbor, and cannot be excelled
on the Gulf, if by any in the country. It is
accessible to frigates of large size, there being
twenty-one feet of water on the bar, and when
once inside all the ships of our navy could
ride in safety. The channel runs near the
coast across the bar, which is short and easi
ly passed. The harbor is completely laud-lock
ed and the roadstead capacious.
Tbe bay is twenty-seven miles in length, and
in its broadest part twelve miles in width. It
lies immediately at the mouth of the Escambia
river. Running along the front of the bay for
fourteen leagues, nearly east and west, is a
long line of sandy shore, narrow, barreu, and
so low that in a severe gale the mad waves
dash over it. This is Santa Rosa’s Island, up
on tbe extreme western end of which is the
solid fortress Pickens, toward which our eyes
aro daily turned in anxious anticipation of
some stormy scenes. Santa Rosa stretches
out to the Chattahoochee river. The western
point, which is one mile in width, is at the
mouth of tho bay, and from this point the land
grows more narrow. On an average, it is not
over a fourth of a mile in width, although in
some places it exceeds this considerably. At
high water there are many places where the
waves run over the land, as I have previously
stated. Near Tickens it is barren for a mile
or thereabouts, and then commenoes a low
growth of shrubbery, scraggy pines, live oak
bushes and small trees of different varieties,
it is too sandy for cultivation, and is of no
manner of use, except to protect Pensaoola
from the sea. and to form a reliable roadstead.
The upper arm of Pensacola bay receives the
Yellow-Water, or Pea river, Middle river, end
Ksoambia river, eleven miles from tbe Gulf of
Mexico. The outer shore of 8anta Rosa’s Is
land is sometimes dangerous to incoming ves
The peculiar position of Pensacola bay
makes it desirable as a naval station, as ex
cellent positions for dock yards can be found
in tbo harbor. When the Railroad from Mont
gomery is completed, the facilities for reaching
it will be so much increased that it will present
quite another appearance. New stores will be
erected, warehouses built, and other wharfs
and docks for the accomodation of shipping.
Capital will go wherever there is a chance for
investment, and if I may claim the indulgence
for prophecy, here will be an El Dorado for fi
nanciers. It is true there is no rich back coun
try to bring in its products to enrich the city,
but this is hardly necessary in this case, al
though desirable in any. The imports of such
a port as this cannot fail to be heavy when the
goods can be easily and cheaply distributed
through the country.
As a summer rostdence, too, Pensaoola must
be delightful; for the town is pleasant, the
drives good, the aoenery romantic, the water
excellent, and 1 am told there is a fine breeze
from the sea in the hottest day of summer.—
The sunset scenes are as beautiful to me as
any I have witnessed in the Bay of Naples,
and every night when the evening gun is fired,
1 lean upon the parapet overlooking “ old Kan
Carlo de Barrancas,” and gaze far down tbe
beach aud across the water, until tbe dusky
shadows of night fall upon the s£&. Then the
light house lamps are lit, and its beacon-light
flashes over tho restless waves for miles up
the bay. To one fond of romance and history,
or one who oan commune with hia innerself,
it is no hardship to stand as sentinel at night
upon the ramparts and listen to the music of
the ocean-waves as they play upon the beach
in the same mournful cadence they did npon
the Euxine shore in the days of good old Ho
