The census of 1870 will most materi
ally change the political balanco of pow
er in this country. As between tho
West and the East, it will pass tho Alle
ghenies, never to return. It will not be
long, indeed, before tho great North
West great in every respect will have
a population and political power larger
than all tho other sections of the country
In 1840 the Atlantic Eastern States as
divided from the Southern, had 110
Cougressmeu, they will have in 1S70 but
60. The West lu 1840 had but 32 meta
tersof the Houe. In lb70 it will be
assigned 83 members. Theso figures are
eloquent aa to the progress of the West.
If we add Kentucky to the ,North-west,
where It properly belongs, and with
whom It will vote on all importantques
tions, the West will have at. least. 91
Representatives to.tbeEast'sSG. In 1840
New England alone had 0 members
moro than the North-west. Now It has
not as many, although to it aro added
the. votes of tho immense States of Now
York and Pennsylvania, and the smaller
ones of Now Jersey11 and .Delaware, which
thirty years ago had, nearly as, many
members as the North-west will havo la
When the roll of tho North-west was
called in Congress in 1840, there was ub
response from Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas,
Nebraska, and Minnesota, all of which
havo been admitted Into the Union since.
Theso States., then unborn, will havo as
many members as New England iu a
year or two from now. The slugle State
of Illinois will soon be nearly equal to
all New England iu political power. In
1840 she had but 3 members of Congress
to Now England's 38. 'J
More than onu. third of tho noxt Hous6
of It nnrHMiitM liven, elected after tue cen
sus of 1870, will be from tho West, and,
united to tue Houtn-WHSf, win give us a
clear majority in that' body, as well as of
There Is another Important gain to be
secured by the next apportionment afters
1870. For the first time the South wilt
havo u full representation upon tho ne
groes, instead of three fifths of them, as
belore. She will gain fully 13 members
by this a very Beusjblo lucreasoto her
political strength. As tho "recoustruc
iiou" business la now going ou tho Dem
ocrats will have the benefit of that in the
next Presidential election, as well as of
the increased vote in the West. The
next ratio for a Congressman will be one
to 165,000 people..
