Under 'he operations of tbe code In qocstion, though aome wronga may have been perpetrated through antiquated clauaes of It, the free negro population of Washington have been for half a century more prosperous individually, more serviceable to society at largv, and In every way In better condition '.ban the free negroes of H*> K'aHW c- ? ?v ....u uruenii experience teacbesthat tbey require different lawa for their government than those applicable to a white population; and experience ker* teaches that the operation of such laws roar greatly benefit them, and ward off tbe evils foctdfet to themselves and society arising oat of their pretence at the North without their restraining influence. v If revolutionary changes be made in the local law of the District In thU connection, for buncombe at the North, instead sf a free negro population of perhaps 14,'JUO, In tbe current anomalous cooaiuoa or tfie country the District of Colnmbii oannot fall to become it once the harbor for al least 50,000 negroes, practically freed a? an Incident of tbs war.
