v'.jtr Immigration itttrcnti.
A letter in the New York Times, in
noticing the appointment of thc
Commissioner of Immigration in this
The Art makes it the duty, ol' the
Commissioner to advertise in all the
newspapers of this State for hinds
that tiro for sale; to lay ol?, plot, de?
scribe and appraise such lands; to
verify their titles through the Attor?
ney-General or Solicitor of the State,
making tho right ard title clear; to
open books for the registration ot' the
same, together with the prices de?
mande;! and thc conditions of pay?
ment; and. in case an immigrant
selects .such lauds, to superintend fae
transfer of title and other necessary
instruments and proceeding of con?
veyance. He thus aets as complete
intermediary agent between the sell?
ers of lands and the immigrant pur?
chasers. Thu Commissioner is i'm- j
ther required to publish periodically, '
advertise and cause to be distributed
in the Northern European ports and i
States descriptive lists ol' snell lands
as have been registered and offered
for sale, together with the Act, and
a statement of such advantages as
this State oilers iii soil, climate, pro-'
duetions, social improvements and
advantages generally to the indus?
trious, orderly, sober and frugal
European immigrant. The Commis?
sioner is to carry out these results
through ins agents, v. hose holds of
operation and duties are nuder his
own supervision and control.
As, on the other hand, this Com?
missioner is required to protect land?
owners from fraud and imposition,
so also is he specially charged with
the protection of the immigrants in
the proper selection ol' their lands, in
arranging for transportation, in
guarding them against fraud, chica?
nery and peculation, in their tempo?
rary location in proper and reasonable
places ol' board and lodging on their
arrival in t Larieston, and m making
all such regulations and provisions as
may be in any way necessary for their
safety or conducive to their welfare.
All oilier officers oi thc State are re?
quired by the same law to aid and as?
sist him in tlie objects under his
charge whenever he may call upon
them to do so. He is further re?
quired to keep a separate book, in
which "lie must register all applica?
tions from citizens, free of charge,
for immigrant artisans, mechanics,
farmers, or help ol' any kind, (such
as servants.) together with the kind
of service required, and the compen?
sation offered; and another book, in
which he must record the names,
crafts and qualifications of immi?
grants that are looking for employ?
ment. He must also make memo?
randa of such contracts as shall be
made under these regulations. The
Commissioner is also required to re?
port the results of his labors to every
annual .session of the Legislature,
and to the Governor, as often as he
shall call for it.
Thus it will appear that the Com?
missioner of Immigration is consti?
tuted an intermediary agent between
the European immigrant on the one
hand, and the citizen of the State,
who is willing to make room for the
foreigner, on the other.

Memphis is destined to be the com?
mercial centre of the United States.
