Abstract

This, the seventh, enumeration of the inhabitants of the
United States exhibits results which every citizen of that
country must contemplate with gratification and pride. Since
the census of 1840 there have been added to the territory
of the Republic, by annexation, conquest, and purchase,
824,969 square miles; and its title to a region covering
341,463 square miles, (previously claimed and partially
occupied by England): has been established by negotiation,
and brought within its acknowledged boundaries.
By such means the area of the United States has been
extended, during the past ten years, from 2,055,163 to
3,221,595 square miles, exclusive of the great lakes which
lie upon its northern border, and the bays which indent its
shores on the Atlantic and Pacific.
