A new inquiry is to be made by tin
Collector of Vital Statistics for the next
census in this district which mar con
tribute something toward the solulini.
t an old problem, writes a Washington
correspondent. Health Officer Townsemi
has required the medical officers of tin
city to furnish all information possible :t
to the mortality of people of mixed
bloo I, mulatoes, quadroons, and to t.'tki
a distinct classification of those persons
in the census. There has been in some
quarters some talk as to the creation ol
mien a new classification. This hitherto
has been true as to some of the Southern
States. But the people who are not gen
erally classed in the census as colored
"make the very distinction on their own
account." The mulatoes and quadroons
quite generally do not have social rela
tions with very dark negroes. So much
is this the case that there is one of t In
most prominent "colored" church or
ganizations here which is known as the
"white coloied church." It may tit
doubted whether a black negro could ob
tain a seat in there. The peoplcof mixed
blood constitute almost a caste. The
look almost with contempt upon the
genuine African, and are much cha
grined when any of their children show
recurring family traits and are as black
as, for instance, the father or mother o!
the Krsou of mixed blood may have

This is a time-honored usage in Fayette

was doubtless different from that which
inaugurated the custom in the bustling

ringing was the signal by which the
slave, absent from home for any cause,
was notified that "the pat-er-ol would

that it was a tit time for white as well as
