K. Hem. Press. [Communicated for the Democratic PressJ LETTER X. “ Washington March 12, 1816. « DEAR JACK, ** The population of this place is ^f vari ous colors, from pure white to pure black, with all the intermediate shades. Black Spirits and white, blue spirits and grey, mingle, mingle, mingle. The poor children Tou see Playing in the streets arc of all co lors, and some of them put me in mind of members of Congress, which I suppose jb owing to their mama’s attending Con gress every day to hear speeches. There is a Theatre here, but it is only open occa sionally, when a company of amateurs play for the benefit of a Benevolent Society_ People of course go there out of charity, rather than from any pleasure they expect, 1 suppose. It is a neat little Theatre, and were it put in order, would be worth the attention of the companies of New-York and Philadelphia. I am told that during the last summer, a detachment of the Phi ladelphia company met with great success, having full houses almost every night, tho* few strangers are here at that season of the year. In winter they would be sure of meeting with great success—and I am sur prised that some one of these managers does not take the Theatre under lease._ Perhaps it cannot be got reasonably, for every man here, so far as I cau see, prefers lettjng his property moulder in ruins rather than sell, or let it, at a reasonable price.— This silly, narrow-minded notion of hold ing property at a value founded npnn the participation of w hat it will be worth per haps at some distant period, is what ruins t us place and stops the progress of im pruyement more than any cause whatever. 1 lie holders of property here would act wisely were they to give away some of their ots, as our Great Landholders do their lam s, to persons who contract to build and settle upon them in a certain time. In stead ot this, however, they hold their lots am houses at a price that nobody will give, and the consequence is, that the Foreign - I misters and other distinguished stran gers, who would hire houses here, are obli ged to live at lodgings, and station their amdies at a distance. I have no patience with these foolish people who are thus de teatiog their own anticipations. “ ,,0.w ils.t1h««’ property to acquire the xalue at which they hold it, except by the increase of the City—and how is the city to increase if the people are obliged to pur chase land at a prospective value—twice or thrice as great as its actual value ? Money put out at simple interest will double itself m 14 years—and can these people suppose a purchaser will give double price for pro perty on the calculation that it will double in years—or Heaven knows when ? “Owing to the immense extent of the plan of \\ ashington, land can never be so ugh asm New-York,Philadelphia,and Hal timore, because when it gets to a certain price in one quarter, a settlement will be begun in another, and it is little to be ap prehended but that there will be ample space lor at least one whole century. To me, therefore it appears, that these people stand in their own light, by asking too much bn their land, and too high a rent for their houses. It discourages people :r0m set tling here—under the idea that they caivt get houses to live in, or lots to build upon at a reasonable price. ’ „ 7, 1 seat or government capable of accommodating strangers, and tl»e members of government—but, I should , not be at all surprised if the government | should ere long be removed, because the holders ol property will not improve it themselves, nor sulier others to do it, with out paying much more than it is reallv worth. One half of the strangers brought -here by business or curiosity, can’t eet comfortable accommodations, and I think Congress is bound injustice to those who are obliged to visit this place in cnnse quence of its being the seat of government, to aHord them the means of common com fort, or go somewhere where these can be obtained, and where property ami houses can be bought or lured at a rate reasonable enough to invite people to come and live in “ The situation of Washington is beauti ful. It is scarcely to be exceeded. It is not less healthy than other places or the U. States. The climate is better than most paits of the Union—and being the seat of government, it of course ought and would i attract many people, were it not for two reasons. Hie one is, the bad name it has at a distance for furnishing the comforts and accommodations of life the other, the enormous and disproportioned price charged for property here. In the madness ol speculation on the first laying out of the City, people gave five times as much for land as it was worth—and now in the obsti nacy ol disappointment, they are resolved it seems to make amends at least by asking a great deal more for it than any body will give; for il they made a bad bargain, it is no reason why other people should do so too. “ There would be, but for the last rea son, a fine opening here for tradesmen and labourers of various descriptions. A few first rate shoemakers, I am told are very much wanted, and would infallibly get into excellent business. Indeed there is a .'reat want ol industrious people of all kinds here, for nobody works in Washington that can help it. Lvery poor d-1 seems to de pend upon the session of Congress, which like a shoal of herrings along the Western sles, brings temporary plenty in its train. In summer they live upon sunshine and an ticipation. I speak of the lower orders, who in our parts live by regular daily la bors, but who here are door-keepers, mes sengers, &c. 8tc. &c. There are, however, a number of industrious tradesmen and people here, who are exceedingly prosper ous in their affairs. In truth, industry is such a rare qualification here, that it is sure to be ainplv rewarded. n. lew industrious INewKnglariders wmilil carry all before them. Good har deners are especially in demand. There is plenty of land in the City which they could for the taxes, and from which they might supply vegetables to the inhabitants who are often greatly in want of them.— v\ hile Baltimore exceeds any City in the United States for vegetables of every kind, Washington, possessing equal advantages of soil and climate, is almost destitute—be ing in fact supplied in a considerable de gree from N. England, which sends pota toes, onions, and the like. “ To conclude-for hy this time I’ll swear thou art reading (if reading at all,) without understanding one word. Wash ington wants nothing but a lew enterprising men of capital, a few enlightened men of landed property, a few industrious trades men, a few more houses, a few Yankees to stir up the blood of the sleepers here, and a few honest hackney coachmen, to be really a pleasant place, worthy of its name, and its destiny. « Wake i)uncan with this knocking!” “ Farewell, sleepy head.” F () R 8 A L K.
