Freedom dt Slavery for Afric-Americans. To the Editor of The Tribune: Figures cannot be charged with fanaticism Like the everlasting hills, they give cold, silent evidence, unmoved by the clouds and shadows of whatever present may surround them. Let us see what they say of the vital statistics of the Slaves of the South of the South and of the Free Blacks of the North. There are one or two preliminary remarks necessary to enable us to judge of this matter: they relate to what sta? tists call the " disturbing influences." It is gen? erally assumed that the rigor of the Northern winter is more destructive to the Afric-Amcrican constitution than the milder influence of the South? ern clime. How much should be allowed for this, I am at a loss to sav : bv the late census, how? ever, the free colored population of the Northern and Southern States have nearly an equal per centage above 36 years of age not more than1 12 per cent being in favor of the South. But this ?mail per centage is more than balanced by the fa? cility with which colored men and women turn white at the North. The keen and practised eyes of Southern men can instantly detect the most remote admixture of African blood : and interest and pride urge them to exercise a rigid conserva? tism. But here at the North, the boundary line is less distinct: the colored white has merely to change his place of abode, cut his old associates, and courtesy will do the rest?he is a white. There in not a path in literature or science in our State, in which 1 could not point out very dis? tinguished colored men. Of one hundred boys who attended with me the N. Y. African Free School in 1826-7, I could name six now living all white. There is another ' disturbing influence." You have probably heard of the great Anglo-Saxon race, the Irish people and the Bcrsekirs. You have also heard of their indomitable energy which overwhelms all opposing obstacles?and races. During the last thirty years, the Northern States have been the scene of a silent struggle. The combatants have been, and are, on the one hand the great Anglo-Saxon race, and the Irish people and the Bcrsekirs (I have borrowed the name from Mr. Emerson) having in their possession 1 the arts of war and peace,' their numbers swelled by an immigration of 23,000 per year, which has fallen into rank and file by naturalization and enfran? chising laws?on the other hand, are the free black*, tuught to believe themselves naturally in? ferior, barely admitted to common-school instruc? tion, shut out from the temples of higher literature, and taunted with ignorance, barred from the jury bench and driven from what arc called churches, yet branded with impiety. This has been no trifling conflict. The Indian race have perished 10 a like encounter. It has severely tried the vi? tality of the free blacks, whilst the slaves of the South have had no such battle to fight in their struggle for bread. This should show the per centage of longevity in favor of the slaves, other things being equal. The Texan slave-trade, or migration, consisted chiefly of slaves under 36. The voluntary mig? ration to Canada of the runaway slaves (about 10,000) has also consisted, chiefly of a class of persons under 36 years of age. Both of these dis? turbing influences would throw the balance of longevity largely in favor of the slaves of the South ; for the medium ages being diminished, the extrcmea^should be greater. Longevity ia an admitted teat of relative con? dition. Take two classes of persons, equal in Iv other respects, and place them in like condition, Wk their longevity will be equal: place the same JS clusses of persons in different condition, and that W condition which yields less longevity will be the worse condition. By the census of 1840, it ap? pears that there are of frei: colored in the free stater, Main. Females. Affed 36 and under 55?16.1* per ct. 15.62 per ct. " 55 and under 100? 6.5 per ct. 7.1 per ct. slaves. , .? , Mal*s. Females. Aged 36 and under 55?11.65 per ct. 11.22 per ct. " 55*and under 100?4.11 per ct. 4. perct. that is to say : Fres colored of 36 and under 100?22.68 percent. Slaves of 36 and under 100?15.49 per cent, j Difference..7.19 Here we find that whilst 22.68 per cent, of the free black population of the North live beyond 36 years of age, only 15.49 per cent, of the slave? of the South pass that period of life; showing a dif? ference of 7.19 per cent, in favor of the longevity, i. e. of the condition of the free blacks. And as the only difference between these classes of popu? lation is, that the one is free and the other ensla? ved, it follows that slavery has actually destroyed at the very least 7.19 per cent, of the slave popu? lation. Had the slaves been in no worse condi? tion than the free blacks of the North, instead of numbering only 2,487,355 in June, 1840, they would have numbered 2,666,440, the difference, IT'O.OSS, having been Murdered by the sys? tem of slavery. What mockery it is for men to talk of the kindness of masters in taking care of aged slaves, when Death has relieved them of so large a share of the burden! Have not the North? ern States a right, in view of this awful fact, to call upon the South to emancipate her slaves so that she may 44do no murder?" If a hundred thousand dollars, sunk in the mire of repudiation, is sufficient cause for great and pious men to whine about, what rush of sympathy is sufficient? ly rapid, what language ia temperate,*which pleads lor the loss of a hundred thousand human lives, cut off in their prime, and blasted from all useful? ness ? This is no accidental result of a single census : by reference to Professor Tucker's very able work on the " Progress of population, &,c." (Press of Hunt's Merch Mag. N. Y.) it will be seen that in the census of 1820 and of 1830, the same per centage of the slave population, only 15 per cent. live beyond the age of 36 years, whilst the free black population has steadily improved its per centage beyond that period of life from 17 per cent, to 22.68 per cent. Here, then, is evidence from unprejudiced wit? nesses, that the Free Blacks of the North are nor worse off than the Slaves of the South ; and that the former have gradually improved in longevity; that is, in the comforts of life, since their emanci? pation. As a portion of these comibrts must be food and clothing, it is a fair inference that they are not worse fed, nor clothed than are the Slaves. Thero is corroborative evidence in the annals of this city. Dr. Niles states that in 1824, 5 and 6, the deaths among the Free Black population of this city was 1 ia 18.88. By the City Inspector's Keport for 1840,1 rind that the deaths of the same class wcreonly 1 m 32.16. Slavery was abolished, or terminated, in New-York in 1827 ; and a largo proportion of those who died in 1825, &.c. were Slaves recently emancipated. These facts prove that within fifteen years after it became a Free State, a portion of the Free Black population of New.York have improved the ratio of their mor? tality 13.28 per cent.?a fact without parallel in the history of any People. It is a prevalent opinion that Emancipation has made the Free blacks deaf, dumb, blind, idiots, insane, ?See. &e. The Southern Literary Messenger has quite a pretty theory on this sub. ject, based upon certain statements, announced as facta, in the Census of 1840. An editor at Buffalo, and subsequently Dr. Jarvis of Dorches? ter, Mass., have {demolished that theory by prov? ing that the statements announced in the Census were not facts. Those statements made Maine a very mad house, yet they contradict themselves in the following manner' In that State, sailh the Census of 1840: Tow?? Total col'd inhab.

The Census is equally incorrect as to trie propor don of deaf, dumb, &c. Freedom has not made us mad; it has strengthened our minds by throw? ing us upon our own resources, and has bound uf to American Institutions with a tenacity wmcn nothing but death can overcome.
