l,4'J'i. Tlieso ate flici;i 1 figures, taken this nioniiug from tl it
book s in the ilii'-eof Mr. Jero M. (Jlea-on, Mate Hegiutrar of
voters for the parish of Orleans.
This fully answers the (jue.st.ion as to wln-tlnT the amend
inent, if adopted in North Carolina, would eliminate (In; negro
from polities. A reduction from 11,177 to 1 I7:i in the city
where the negro is hotter educated and posse.--es more property
than any when; else in the State, is a fact that iioltody can get
around. The negros are said to he better educated in this city
than in any other portion of the United States. The public
schoois hen; are in a high state of efliciency,and have been open
lo the colored youth for more Mian twenty-five years. The
number of negroes is smaller here than in most Southern cities,
being in the proportion of about four whiles to o.i negro. Hero
the negroes get better wages than in any other parish tall coun
ties here are called iiari.-slie.si, and
ligence than in the farming secliuns of the hi tale. Jf in this
city, where the negro i.s superior lo his brother on the sugar and
cotton plantation:'., the negro vote lias "swunk" from 11 177 to
l,l'.t.'i, the proportion of shrinkage is said to be even larger in
the rural distriets. 1 will go to some of the country precincts
later and give the olticial liures.
