comment Number of population whose actual mother tongue is Mandarin?
That's comparing apples to oranges. Chinese "dialects" are much more diverse than the English "dialects" you just mentioned. My mother tongue is Cantonese. My mom is from Shanghai and my dad is from south Fujian, but I can tell you that I can't understand any conversation in 上海話 or 閩南話 after all these years. It's not just the pronunciation. The grammar and even vocabulary for common usage can be radically different. In contrast, I can converse with an Indian, Australian, or most other English speakers as soon as I got used to the accent.

comment 黃中 = being employed as an imperial government official/having a career in the imperial government?
Yes, I found "黃中" to mean the emperor in another dictionary, too. So the interpretation in the page I linked to is not entirely accurate, I suppose.
