The Center of Pomilation.
A vei.uan: issued some time
ago from the census office, em
bracing a portion of the statistics
gaered at the enumeintiou of
1880, contains a diagram which
shows how the center of population
has shifted fiom decade to decade,
since 1790, in its steady march
westward. What statisticians
understand b' the term center
of population is the point at which
equilibrium would be reached were
the country taken as a plane sur
face without weight, but capable
ol sustaining weight, and the in
habitants distributed over it in
number and position as they arc
found at the period under consider
ation, each inhabitant being sup
posed to'be of equal weiglrt, and
consequently to exeit prcssuie on
the pivotal point in direct propor
tion to his distance therefrom.
The first census of tne United
States taken in 1790, showed the
center of population to be on the
eastern shore of Maryland about
twenty-two miles from Baltimore
and near the thirty-ninth parallel
of latitude. From that point it has
moved westward at the average
rate of fifty one miles in a decade,
never deviating as much as a. de
gree to the north or south of the
thirty-ninth parallel. By 1SO0 it
had moved forty one miles, and
was found at a point eighteen
miles west of Baltimore. hi 3810
it was near the Potomac, in "West
Virginia, at a place
foitv miles. !
nothwest of AVashinuton
traveled thirty -six miles dining
the preceding decade. Its pio
gress in the following ten 3 ears
was fifty miles, and in 1S20 it was
in the valley of Yhgini.i, i.teen
miles north of Woodstock.
The census of 1S00 discovered
that the center of population,
previously a little north of the
thirty-ninth parallel, had pased
that line and was a trifle to the
south of it, at a point in the Alle
ghany mountains nineteen miles
west of Mooreficld, Virginia, the
progress westward since 1S20"!
being thirty-nine miles. This was
the most decided southward move
ment it has made in any decade,
and is explained by the acquisi
tion of Florida, and the settlement
of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana
and Arkansas. In the ensuing
decade tho center locur-sed
the thirty-ninth parallel, moed
fifty-five miles westward, and
was found at a point six
teen miles south of t'latks
bui r. Virginia. Southern Michi
gan and "Wisconsin and Xotthein
Indiana and .Illinois had begun to
fill up, and their population turned
the balance to the northward. In
1850 it was still in Virginia, but
close to the Ohio liver, having
moved fifty-five miles and being at
a point twenty-three miles south
east of Parkersburjr. Acain it was
south of tho thirty-ninth parallel
but only a distance of about :
mile, the deflection being ex
plained by the annexation of
Texas. By 3 SCO it had reached
a pint twenty miles south of
Chillicothe, Ohio, and alittle noith
of the thirty-ninth parallel, having
made the greatest progress crer
made in a decade, the distance
from the last point being eighty
one miles. This remarkable move
ment was caused by the settlement
of the Pacific coast twelve per
sons in San Francisco, by leason
of their distance from the ph atoll
point, counterbalancing foi ty per
sons in Boston. The next step was
forty-two miles westward, and
about twelve northward, which
brought the center into Highland
county, Ohio, and about fortj'-eighl
miles east by north of Cincinnati.
It is believed that the apparent
northern movement during this de
cade was caused by defective enu
meration of the southern states at
the censns of 1870. I-i 3880 the
center was near the village of Taf
loreville, Kentucky, about eight
miles west by south of Cincinnati,
the westward progress being fifty
eight miles and the deflection to
the south about eight. The cen
sus of 1890 will probably discover
it in Jennings county in southeast

connected with this coast since the

to be pai tial.
Speaking of the
Coitez and Pizarro in Mexico and
South America, he says:
uThe Spaniards of the sixteenth I
century nave occn caueu a crue.i
peeple: and so thev weie. Yet
they were no more cruel than
other nations of their day, and no
mote cruel 1 datively, according to
the monrcss of humanity, than ate
we to-day. Time evolvesin nu-ny j

changes not. Indmduals maybe
less beastly: society may be regn

less systematic torture, less un
blushing chicanery: but the v.orkl
has yet to find a weightier light
than might. J fail to discover in
America, by Catholic SpaniauK 01
heathen savages, deeds more
atrocious than some omi. mil
ted in India and China
within the picscnt century by
Protestant England, the woilds
model of piety and propriety; and
yet the treatment of Indians 1:1
North America by the people of
Great Britain has been far moie
just and humane than their treat

Before such a charge as ilwt of!
