I'm not sure what you're looking for--do you mean display the count of
obs on the relevant part of the graph? It would help if you gave an
example using the auto data, like so:

sysuse auto, clear
histogram mpg if mpg>25 & mpg<40, by(for) bin(20) name(wo, replace)
count if mpg>25 & mpg<40 & for==0
local n0=r(N)
count if mpg>25 & mpg<40 & for==1
local n1=r(N)
la def `:val label for' 0 `"`:label (for) 0': `n0' obs."', modify
la def `:val label for' 1 `"`:label (for) 1': `n1' obs."', modify
histogram mpg if mpg>25 & mpg<40, by(for, title(With #Obs.)) bin(20)
