They had large numbers of slaves... if that's what you're looking for. The Compromise of 1850 led to the Fugitive Slave Act, and that tightened the control of any runaway slave. Also, even when the slave tradewas stopped, the practice of slavery wasn't. Therefore, many slave owners bred the slaves they had a lot more rigorously than they would have if slaves were still being imported. because of that, the number of new slaves every year increased.
