SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1G.
Tlio Plnnters' 'Mcctlni;
We etjle it tbe Ilauteni Meeting, in order
that our readoTB toaj know of what we write. To
etjle the meetirjg of Saturday and Monday lat
tbe Cittzcnd " meeting Beemt a misnomer. It
was a Planters Meeting in every ftenee, and we
claim distinuinhed authority for o terming it.
Tlie party or parties who were most prominent in
bringing it about, and in bringing the resolutions
before it, had klips printed which were lieaded
Rfflolutiono offered at the Planters Meeting : "
again, Judge Widexnann, in a most abrupt man
ner, declared, daring the second day's rH.wliiigH,
" TliiB i a Planters Meeting, " and if he had
not been interrupted would have gone on to nck
tbose who oprwiecd tiw resolution why they were
there : again, wlicn a motion wa made to tr.tns
pose two of the resolutions, it was net by a query
aa it twkw anrli trrtnaTmaition Would lufH't the views
ofythe Secretary, a Planter.
We claim that it was not a public meeting in
(ho ene in which that term is generally under
stood. We grant that tlte posters called fr a
meeting of Planters and Citizens generally, but
we amert that a citizen whoso views did not ac
cord with tbe resolutions was soon made to feel
that be was sadly oat of plaeej As was said by a
speaker, thm? who oppw-ed tlio cmtract synU-m
before the ineeiing, felt very inach as tbe ll:trrard
crew must have felt in the late content on the
Thames. The facf is, Planters and thos in tlielr
interest, were wanted in force, anl then a few cit
izens, particularly a few who would speak against
tlte resolution", so that tlie affair might not be too
tame, and the result of the meeting is to be chimed
as an erylorsemcnf of the coolie j.ein, but more
pointedly an enl7rsement of the Board of Immi
gration, tbe Ministry and the Gazettt. TI plan
was too transparent. We are aware that several
persons who attended tbe first day'a meeting, and
expected to hear the subject thoroughly ventilated,
would not attend tbe second day as it was evi
dent, to nse their language, that a strict adher
ence to the resolutions was not only expected but
would be maintained.
The idea of calling a meeting to discuss a ques
tion of such importance, and ujon which the
sentiment of the community is divided, and plac
ing before it a set of resolutions rot and dried for
the occasion, entirely in the interest of the Planter,
never originated with an impartial, candid man.
It was. we grant, a smart transaction, but a very
questionable one. Tlie whole matter bears tbe
impress of the band of the wii -pnlIcr who occu
pies the Finance department. Hie same little
game was played upon tle occasion of sending the
Envoy to Washington.
The transactions at the meeting will be found
fully act forth on our first and third pngfs, and
we ask that they may be carefully read, not
because it is an expression of public opinion, as
the largest vote taken did not exceed thirty-five,
but because we believe that its careful perusal
will bo instructive. One point strongly act forth
was, that men only were to be desired
were not wanted because they were either useless
or too expensive. Thus wc find that the tiise of '
repopolating the group has been cast aside.
Tbe testimony of tho meeting is to the effect
that Japanese are worthies as laborers on our
plantations. Dr. Lee, who come to tltcse islands
with tbe Japanese, addressed a letter to tlie meet
ing, in which be set forth the merits of the c!as
of laborers, and urged as a preliminary step that
a treaty should be made with Japan, poesibly
with a view of offering bis services as envoy.
In support of tbe plan to import Chinese, the
Chairman read tbe views of an agent of tbe
Memphis Convention, a body wbieb declared
ituclf in lavor of coolie labor because it came
nearest to slave labor. The Planters in urging the
want and immediate necessity of more labor,
never referred to tbe influence which tbe influx
of a large number of Chinese would have upon
our society, or upon the future of these islands,
but rested their claims entirely on tbe dollar and
cent basis. A plan was proposed by which it
was possible that tbe contract and assignment
system might be avoided, and criticism as to its
merits invited, to which no rewptaise was made.
During the meeting a gentleman who defended
the planters stated tliat tbe situation waa such
that in order to secure labor aooie plan was
uticifaary by which it might be forced. This
remark was received with pro looked applause,
leading those present to believe that such a con
dition, of affairs was much to be desired. Tbe
discussion on the assignment clause waa sharp
and apirittd, and when the aetxe of tbe meeting
waa taken the vote stood twenty-five for the
clause to six against. A motion calling for the
ayes and noes was warmly opposed by tbe Min
ister of Finance in behalf of hliuAelf. the Minister
of the Interior, the Second Awwtate Justice of
the Supreme Court and tbe twenty-two others
who voted ia favor of U clause. After some
dlscuaatoo the motion was withdrawn, owing to
the extreme titiveoetBj displayed by the eup
porters of tbe cUuse.

Ia the first place a double object is in view in
tlie importation of coolies to furnish labor for
tie plantation, and to increase by amalgamation
the native population. Tbe first, though answering
tlie j-urpose of tlie planter, in other respects
has its drawbacks, while the second not only
misses its object, but is tbe source of much damage
in many ways to the native race. In support of
these Atand-ptintd we have weighty reasons,
many of which, particularly in regard to the
obnoxious character of tbe coolies now here,
we derive from the report of Dr. llilkbrand,
tbe authorized agent of tbe Board of Immigra
tion, furnished to that body and published in
We propose to insert extracts from this report
without comment, and though they do not form
a connected argument, we believe that they will
carry conviction to tbe minds of the impartial
reader. In reading these extract we become
conversant with tlie ideas of a gentleman who by
bis high standing in society, his extensive knowl
edge and acquaintance with tbe world, must
claim our attention, and have weight in helping
us to a solution of the question which now
occuTiies so much of our time and thoughts. We
recommend a perusal of the rejort of the Doctor,
which can be f Hind in the Ga'ette, from the 1st
to tbe 22d of December, I860. In speaking of
the way they are transported from China be says :
The Chioeae character being eaten tiallr different
from that cf a negro, in point of sabuiiasiveness, re
volt and mutinies are of frequent occurrence during
tbe first part of these vojages, and tbe CAlamities re
sulting therefrom often are of an awful character.
Of some sent to Bombay from Hongkong, from
whence the supplies we have came, be remarks :
These have proved very turbulent and were, I
believe, returned before their term of contract had
Respecting the position which tbe Chinaman
bears to us we mark the following :
Dear well in mind, that a Chinaman is not a
negro, nor a Polynesian, in character. Strong te
nacity of his rights, quick ebulition of temper, and
readiness fur fight are among his characteristics ; and
as he has been trained to luck at death and suffering
with indifference, to him are wanting those checks
and restraints from acts of violence which the fear of
That the Chinaman himself cannot have fair
dealing according to our system, the following
may be indicative :
For redress of grievances the lower courts of the
country are of little uae to him, because he does not
understand their mechanism ; because he cannot ex
press himself or plead ia his own language, and be
cause, as a general thing, the influence of his
employer falls heavy in tlie scale against his complaint-
" Coolies invalided by sickne&s
or accident, have likewise to Ite repatriated at the
expense of the employer.' To recruit women
is still the greatest difficulty, and I have been obliged
by force of circuindtances to relax the strict enforce
ment of rules with regard to them. Shall we there
fore discontinue to import women with our coolies?
If you ask me this question, I moat emphatically say.
no. The difference between a coolie and a tlate it
one of degree nut of estence.' (The italics are ours.)
Tlie shorter the term of bonded service, the greater
the freedom of movement allowed during the same,
tbe more his natural and human rights and interests
are reepected, the more you remove his condition
from that of the slave."
The following from our point of view is very
We have had Chinese coolies among us for more
tbAn twelve years more than one great crime has
been committed by them. If the people with this
experience before them concluded to aSk for more,
they kmiw what rik they took. I can for my psrt
asore them that they have got as good a lot as could
te had ; aod moreover, that not one of them haa.
j been obtained by any but fair and honorable means."

Wc give elsewhere a report, necessarily con
densed, of the meeting of citizens held at the hall
of Engine Company Ino. 2, on Thursday evening.
It was composed mainly of mechanics and working-men,
who had been nimble to attend the
Planters meetings held in the day-time, when
they were at work, but who felt a deep interest
in the question now before the public Where
shall laborers be obtained, and who shall they be ?
Tbe citizens turned out en masse, and filled the
small hall almost to suffocation, whilo at least ono
hundred returned to their homes unable to gain
admittance. It was one of tbe most enthusiastic
public nteetings ever held here, and shows that
whenever ary subject of interest comes up, tho
people are ready to turn out and attend, provided
the meeting is licld so they can attend, and under
circumstances which do not forbid their taking
port, if they happen to be prepent.
The question before tlie meeting was well ar
gued, pro and con, and the speech of Mr. Wilder,
presenting the argument iu favor of cool io iiujKjr
tation, wus a model of clearness and comprehen
siveness, which was not surpassed by any made
at the Planters meeting. At tho close, the
whole subject was referred to a committee of two
planters ami three citizens, who will report to an
adjourned meeting, to be held on Thursday
(.old Gomollntr I New York.
One of tbe most extraordinary and daring
combinations, ever made by the Wall street
gamblers in gold, took place duriDg tbe last week
in September. We had intimations by a pre
vious mail that the leading gold speculators in
tended to obtain possession of and lock op thirty
millions, for tbe purpose of creating a stringency
and forcing the price of gold to a high premium.
The excitement commenced on the 23d of Sep
tember, and tbe telegraph states that nothing
like it lias occurred in tbe gold room eince the
fall of Richmond. Prices were forced up during
that day to 144, and sales of gold made involving
millions of dollars. The pext day (the 24th) it
culminated in a panic, and the price of gold
ranged from 150 to 130. About noon an order
came from Washington to sell four millions of
gold, which was done and had the effect to drive
the prire down to 135, since which it has fallen
gradually to 130.
To give an idea of the magnitude of the
operations of these gold gamblers, we will state
tliat one firm Sold and bought in one day forty
millions of dollars, and that the total sales in
Wall street on the 22d amounted to $324,000,-
; 000 ! Of course no gold changes bands, bat tbe
gamblers merely pay the difference in the rise or
tail of tbe premium. Tbe telegraph reports that
on the 24th, when the excitement was at its
a A crowd proceeded to ta onV of Bealtb, Gould, Mania

The result of the whole waa that some forty
firms involved io this great gambling game lost

a broker's phrase, while others will manago no
doubt to get 00 their feet again and prepare for
A person who has never witnessed it can have
no idea of the excitement among the speculators
fand brokers, when one of these panics takes
place. While io New lork in 18C5, we Tiaited
the gold room, on the occasion of a moderate
panic. Tlie hall was crowded with one of the
wildest and most excited aaaemblageB we ever
aaw. Yells and screams rose in such rapid suo
resatoo in every part of tbe hail, as to give tlie
idea tliat each one waa trying to make the most j
noise jweeible. It Peemed as if a regiment of
devibt had been let loose from tlie lower regions
to create a pandemonium on earth. But the
noise was not the only noticeable feature. The
wild and, frantic expressions which marked the
countenances of many showed the Btruggle that
was going on. There is not a shade of difference
between the gambling iu gold and stocks carried
on in Wall street, and the gambling at faro and
roulette in other places.
The New York papers call on Congress to pass
a law making it a penal offense to sell or buy
gold, except there is an actual delivery of the
amount bought or sold. Could such a law be
carried out it might effect some good, but this
seems very doubtful. Yet the evil is rapidly
gaining ground, and threatens to be fraught with
greater disnster, unless some law is devised to
check or do away with it altogether.
Trickery or tlio Government
. Tlie last official paper contains a note from Mr.
Walker, which apparently denies some of the
statements made by this paper, one of which was
that his name had been used in a base and un
warrantable manner to support assertions which
be liad no idea of endorsing. Tbe following note
from that gentleman shows to what tricks the
editor of the Gazette resorts to gain the endorne
ment of a merchant to its statements, as the edi
tor showed him only a part of the article prepared
for publication, and then dragged in his name
endorse the whole.

And waa alao aaked if I conaidered the market bare cf augur at

the market bare, at least those who deal in sugars to aonie ex

I saw the Article in the Gaxette of October 6th, before it waa
in print, and waa ol the opinion it waa correct, ao far as it re

The following paragraph, however, quoted from the Gazette
of September 16th, appear to be tbe matter at issue i

The above I did not notice, or know tliat It formed part of
tlie article in question until the paper came out, although I
have been assured that it was pinned to the article referred to
when shown to me.

The return of Dr. C. F. Hall to New Bedford,
where lie arrived on the 2Gtb of September, fur
nishes all that will probably ever be known ol
the fate of Sir John Franklin and his expedition
in search of a northern passage from the Arctic
to tlie Pacific, and will remove all doubts respect
ing their fate. Tlie Doctor lound their bones,
remains and relics scattered along the shores of
King Williams Land, podio of the party evidently
having been buried, while the bones of others lay
where they happened to die. He is of opiniou
that they died of starvation and by the treachery
of the natives, after abandoning their vessels

boats were hanging on her sides and one on the
quarter deck, and the ship was housed in with
anil cloth. This being tho case, it would seem asf.;
if the party had met with foul play. But howj
so many could have been killed by vlie Esquimaux;
without signB of a more general conflict than Dr.
Hall reports, is not clear. Nor is it apparent
why they abandoned the ship, unices their pro
visions liad become cxliausted, which the report
does nota-tate. The chief fact of interest estab
liBlied by the return of Dr. Hall is that there no
hope now remains of any one of Franklin's party
' bcinj; alive.
With true American spirit the Doctor proposes
to start again for tlie Arctic next spring, as he is
confident that lie can solve tlie open Polar Sea
problem. The experienco which he has had in
the three expeditions lie has made during the
post ten years, eminently qualifies him for the
task, and if any man can make it successful, it

Tho Cuban news received by the steamer's
mail docs not differ materially from the statement
published last week, at least so far as concern the
mediation of tho United States between Spain
and her revolted province. The former proposed
to mediate on certain terms ; the latter declines
except on her own terms. Tbe American Min
ister to Spain is charged with having used men-

Spanish Government; but we do not find any
corroboration of this statement.
The escape of the privateer Hornet from Phila
delphia, to engage in tho service of the revolu
tionists is unfortunate, and will call ror the Im
mediate active efforts of the American Government
to capture her. Already it has been decided that
orders shall be issued forbidding her an asylum
in any American port. She is said to be a very
fleet vessel, and a match for any war ship of lier
size. But the probability is that her equipment
will not be complete, till she visits some ports
where men and armaments can be obtained.
The Alia, referring to this cruiser, has the
Already, in the case of the Hornet, our Govern
ment has commenced to act in a totally different
manner. It is reported that orders have been issued
to refuse her accommodations in any American port
to which she may proceed. We think that it is the
daty of the Government to go one step farther to
despatch as many ships as it has at command in
pursuit of her ; to overhaul her as soon as possible,
and. in the event of resistance, blow her off the
water. This will be the best method of arguing the
Alabama case. Action like this will not only do
ranch towards bringing that controversy to a tri
umphant close, but to increase everywhere the respect
for the American nation. International law has too
long been interpreted by the European Powers in
aooordAnoa with their own interest. Let ua show to
the world that when we assert a principle we are
prepared to live up to it, regardless of consequences.

the Hawaiian Islands. A visit to the ship shows how
far the cargo has been affected, every part of the
ship's inside paint-work bearing the stain caused by
bilge water. The plated work in the cabin is as
black as ink, while the paint-work looks though it
had been black-leaded. The stench has been so in
tolerable as to make some of the crew sick, and sleep

of the crew who were sent into the pump-well for the
purpose of clearing them of the wheat, were witnarawn
insensible, the foul air also extinguishing a light.
