cent. In the year 1820, the population was 62,738; increase in
ten years seventy-six and a quarter per cent. In 1830, the popu-
lation was 80,622, increase in ten years twenty-eight and a half
per cent. Average increase every ten years, for forty years,
fifty-eight and three quarters per cent. Supposing the present
population to be 100,000, the increase since the taking of the last
census, (seven years,) would be twenty-one per cent; which is
equal, in proportion, lo thirty per cent in ten years.

In speaking of the climate of this city, and its unfavorable
influence on the blacks, the reader must not suppose that the
white inhabitants share this inconvenience. On the contrary, as
it respects them, there is no American city more salubrious, as
the weekly reports of our Board of Health are sufficient to
testify.

The following is the official statement of the mortality during
the year 1836:
