equal, if not superior to the professionals who
rendered the opera in this city a couple
or more weeks ago. The children are
in excellent training, their voices last

of their work with a spirit and apparent un

creditable to professionals of mature cge.

LETTERS FilOM THE PEOPLE.
Words in Meason Hensible Advice.
Editors Appeal There is a very great
want of knowledge about sewers, privies and
earth-cloRels. Many persons speak of con
necting the privies with sewers. This will
not be doce in scarcely a single case. How
can a privy ten, twenty or iorty leet deep be
connected with a sewer that will be only
three to five leet underground? It is impos
sible. When the sewers sire put down, the
privy-vaults must be emptied and then filled J
up witu tresh earth. Why not do it now,
and be on the safe siae? If there are any
germs from black vomit, or excreta or ureta,
or old infected rags still lingering in these
deep privy-V8ult., do, 1 beseech you, good
citi.-'ns, destroy thktu with clean earth tow,
n tune to prevent their germinating again
this spring aud summer. Many persons op
posed to hllinir np the privies seem to tmnk
these cesspiols are to be kept open,
even when we have sewers. This
ii an entire mistake. Th?y must
be filled up some time, let it be done now, and
thns guard against tho very possibility ct
evils. Remember tho vaults are to be filled
in order to destroy the poison already depos
ited in them during the putt twenty years.
It is there, aud nothing but fresh earth will
destroy it. Which is best, to take the
chances ot the yellow-fever spreading again
from these old privy-vaults by not tiding
them up now, or to postpone filling them up
a few months until the sewers are done, when
it must be doue? Bat I tear the rich men
who are so stubbornly opposed to tilling them
up now on account of the expense, and be
cause their vaults are so clenn cad pure, will,
when the sewers are done, refuse to connect
with them because tho expense will ba bo
great and their vaults are fo nice, lano
rance and narrow-minded selfishness are the
peculiarities of some people who aro reported
to have large wealth.
We Asked Him.
Editors Appeal We regret the recent
statement in ths ledger, a few days ago,
that Mr. Edward Shaw sought bis election to
the school board through sinister motives. It
has long been the opinion ol many of our
best citizirs of color that one school visiter
should be chosen from among ourselves. The
colored people are every dav feeling a grow
ing interest in the cause cf education. Be
lieving that Mr. Shaw could well represent
us, in at least presenting our claims, we so
licited tbe use of his name. But he having
Deen placed in an attitude so unenviable, we
feel called upon to stute that it was by an
urgent reqtmst on our part that be consented
to run. We can hardly conceive by what
means that excellent journal, the Ledger,
could have been induced to muko such a
statement. It certainly does not presume to

that Mr. Snaw is not in sympathy with all

in the interest of the people? To him alone

Mr. D. P. Hadden, president of the cotton ex

was to take some action so as to Induce Dr. Porter

Yesterday there was a difference of
opinion In tbe legislative counc1!, which resulted tn
the resignation of Dr. Porter. Let us harmonize and
try and get up a compromise If possible. He desired

resoim ions witn a view to bring out discussion onlibe

V.HEHEAS, The actlon'ot amaotity of tbe leg
islative council of the Taxing-District of Shelby
county, at their meeting held last evening, virtually
defeats one ot the ch let measures recommended by
the commission appointed by the National board of

In the eutorcement ot every sanitary measure
within the piwer of the people to perform, may be
Httended nun the most serious consequences; inere
fora be It

protest against ar y such action, and recommend that
the goco work begun oe vigorously pusnea 10 an earty

Usnlmd further. That the governor, Hon. Albert S.
Marks, be requested to withhold his ac-e;tance of
lb- proposed resignation of Dr. D. T. Porter, presi

Colonel J. B. Bobmson seconded tbe resolutions,
ar il moved their adoption.
Hon. W. J. Clapp wascnlled upon.. He stated the
matter as to the resignation of Dr. Poner, end said
it tell upon his ear nae a nre-neu at nignr. Dr. sor
ter ts known throughout the lnr.d. Ha stood here
Inst summer like a pillar cf Iron, and stands to-day
the embodiment ot moral heroism that any man
might lie proud of. He Is the man who should be
at the helm; the ship Is In danger of being wrecked,
and It you remove that man now from the helm,
stilpwrecs will iollow. Applause. I It will not do
for MeniDiit.-tns to go aiotind the country as mendl
c nits begging for help. This brought the blush of
sli ime to tU" face ot every man last summer. The
MemphUn aw-iy from hero felt his cheek mantle
witn shame at hearing the comments of others on
Memphis and Memohis people. Ued helps tbe man
who heirs bluiselL Applause. We have become
an eje sore to the world, and we have done nothing
to help ourselves. We did nothing after last year's
epidemic, and we have done nothing as yet. We
stand uieaieti. as an nouuraiue oeoiiie. iu carrj out
the recommendations made by the Na
tional board of health as to what wsa
necessary to be done, and we should a honorable
men carry out these recommendations. We cannot
set ourselves up against the deliberations ot these
scientists. If every man Is left to do as he pleases
nothing will be done, ne must appreciate ourcom-
luerelal importance and greatness, we should not
torlelt tbe iireat advantages that liod has given us,
If we do so we will go down, but better, greater and
wiser men will come and build up this city to the
mportance and gieatness to which she is entitled,
Mr. Clat'D cave a history of the deliberations at St
Louis and other places which brought about the
meeting uf the legislature that Imposed the tax for
sewerage purposes The legislature gave us all we
aske-1 tor; now, will we escape from It ? You can
not repudiHte any of tbe measures recommended by
the National board of health sanitary commission.
The earth Is full of slptng fecal matter from these
thousands of privy vaults and pits. 1 hese scientists
have told us that the causes of our troubles were
these foul privy vaults and Nlcolson pavement, which
Is rotten; and should we now set our judgments
against such recommendations? God forbid that I
should set up my paltiy mind against their opin
ion. Applause If we do so. aud the fever comae

not obstruct all this, and then. If yellow-fever comes,

Mr. W. N. Brown said that he favored sanitation,
and felt th t he was censured by this community.
He was a member ot the council, a' ' the council
only repealed a part of tbe ordinance. He wanted
lo defend himself agalutt the charge preferred by
Mr. Clapp I did not assail any member of the
board. I addressed the people, in order to reacn
them, and to get an expression of opinion upon the
Mr. Brown There was only a difference of opinion
between 1 he council and Dr. Porter. He i Mr. Brown)
opposed the filling up of vaults. E-ther Mr. Porter
Is right and we are wron?. or we are right and be is
wrong. 1 will heartily Indorse tbe resolutions asking
JUr. porter to withdraw his resignation, and, It the
people tulLk we ought to resign, 1 will be one to do
so. ido not think it the right policy now to fill up
the privj-vaults at this time, and, if we are? censured
for that, we will have to bear the blame. When tbe
sewers are lsld. It will be time to ml uy the vaults,
but not till iheu.
Tbe reading of the resolutions was again called
for. and they were read by the secretary.
W. S. Pickett hoped Dr. Porter would not be
Indorsed to the extent as to lining up the privjr-
Win. R. Moore said he esteemed Dr. Porter, and
considered It a calamity for him to now press his
resolution to resign. He would vote heartily for the
resolutions. The clause of tbe ordinance repealed
yesterday by the council does not Impede Dr. Porter
iu carrying out his measures. The lining up of
vaults now is rcgdrded as an Impracticable Impos
sibility 11 would now only remove me nuisance
from below to the top of the ground. A great
majority of the people are opposed to It at present.
Dr. Porter acted hastily In resigning last night. He
old not agree with Mr. Clapp as to the necessity of
ruling up privy-vaults. He wanted to ask Mr. Clapp
If be had lilted up bis privy.
Mr. Clapp-I hav-not been notified to do so yet,
but when 1 am I will do bo. It I had five hundred
privies. I would lill all of them up Immediately.
Colonel John B. Robinson arose and said he had
seen privy-vaults emptied three weeks ago, and now
they were full again with t-tliiking water, more of
fensive than ever. Yon cannot keep a vault emptied;
the water will tip a In, and then It Is worse than be
fore. It Is an absurdity to talk about emptylug
vaults, and keeping llieui In good sanitary condition;
they will lill up rapidly, unless you nil them up. Ap
Mr. Win. M. Sneed moved to separate the resolu
tions offered by Mr. johnsoD, and take a vote on
them separately. The motion was seconded.
Chaliman Hadden put the motion, and It was
Tbe vote was then taken on the adoption of tbe
resolutions as a whole, and the resolutions were
adopted by a large majority, after which there was a
storm ot applause.
The meeting then adjourned.
A Tier the Meeting.
After adjournment there was considerable discus
sion. Mr. William It. Moore saying that it was not a
meeting of the people; that he would call a meeting
of the people at which five thousand would be pres
ent, and they wciid be unanimous against earth
closets und lilllri; up vaults at the present time.
Mr. D. . Meyers concurred with Mr. Moore In that
JiiritjeC. W. Helskell desired the report to go to
Nashville as a cl liens' meeting, but Chairman Had-d-n
said that It was a called meeting of the cotton
exchange aud those citizens who desired to attend.
It was not a citizens' meeting. The discussion closed
aud tverjbody left the exchange to renew the contro
