The census, however, was somewhat hur
riedly taken, and it is but proper to suppose
that many per=ms were necessarily omitted.
Our cotemporary admits the probability of
this fact, and gives five per cent. for OIIIiPfIiODS,
which increases' the Fkpulation to 17.988, or
very nearly an even 18.000. It is in error.

really form a share of our number. We do not
think the estimitte too low which fixes them at
:nearly tiro - thousand, and it is perfectly lair to
compute that the whole community directly
identified with Or: city, is little less than
twenty thous•.nd souls. At the rate of pros
perity our F cily has enjoyed for the last three
years, we shall add five thousand more in the
next thirty-six months, and we feel quite safe
in predicting that the census of 1870 will
show a total population of 25,000.
A curioas feature of the census consists in
the fact that while the white population has
increased at such a wonderful ratio, the col.
°red hes leod nearly still, only 16 having
been added to their number in the seven years.
