When It waa staled, la a recent number of
the Burning Poal, that lor thirty yeara poet no
colored person had been burled In the District
of Columbia at the pnblto expense, the refer
ence was to the frit blacks alone. In a few
caees alacea have been buried by the manic!
pal aulhorltlee, their dead bodlea being neg
lected, (lome of them In old age and infirmity,)
aa their living bodlea had been, by their pr-
inoaoa -ownere." auero nave neen cawa in
which tha Irea blacks have burled dead slaves
without any resort upobllo charity.
The total number of colored persons in the
District of Columbia Is now fourteen thousand
three hundred and sixteen. They are divided
aa iouowb ;
Slaves In Washington City 1,7 1
Slavea In Washington couoly 1 834
Slaves in Georgetown 77
Free people of color 11131
1'ROrORTIO.V OF FREK I1L1CKB 1KB RUTU1.
Tha free blacks of tha District are distributed
thronih the city of Waahlna-lon nronar.a dla
Itrict called the Island, (being that part tin Iha
point oi iana running aown oetweea the I'oio
mno and Anacoatla rlvers.l tha navv vanl vi
cinity, Capitol Hill, Meridian Hill, and George
town. The moat denie portlona of the surma
nant residents are on the island. Here mi,j
of them occupy small wooden tenements, aa
they do In other pUcea In tbi District, with
garden patches attached. Here they keen their
horses and hacks, used for hire, having smtll
barns or stables attached to their premires
Theae propertlea are their own, generally, Ibe
products oi uaru earnings, oniatneu in small
sums, by publio and private service. Nearly
all of them have families, with the strongest
natural attachments binding them to Iho toll
and each other.
Frobablj about one half tha slaves now in
the District are brought in by non-residtnta, and
are retained for limited periods and lor tempo
a large proportion oi too slaves nere are ie
males. The reason of this Is obvious. They
are the moat profitable. They allow of an In
crease of numbers, and consequently In value,
aa the condition of the child alwavs follows that
of the mother. There ia less dinger, on this ao
count, also, of their attempting to escape. The
sacred tie of consanguinity is thus used to fasten

Tbe amount of property, real and neraonal

shown by tha official records to be at least Ave
hundred thousand dollars. It la believed by
persona well acquainted with lb facta to be
