Slave Cargoes Landed in Florida.
According to the Washington correspondence of the New York Herald, the African slave trade is meeting with great success on the coast of Florida, and the Government has not taken the first efficient step to arrest it. The writer states that during the past year a large number of slaves have been landed and successfully transported into the interior of the country, and he estimates the late increase of slave population by importation, since 1848, at over fifteen thousand! The cargoes of “savages” landed on the Florida coast was between sixty and seventy. An interested individual had boasted lately that twelve slave vessels, whose names were known to him, would discharge their living freight upon our shores during the next three months.
