His Honor the Mayor stated that
he had called a meeting of thc Conn

Tho Committee on G uard Hous<

Th'"* Committee on (.naru Hons,

from various sources, of great an
growing demoralization among ot

cieucy in the discharge of their duti
on thc part of most of thom, ar

; The New York Ti?nes, of Fri ?Tay, j
I has the following remarks relative to
emigration matters. We hope the
I statement referred to by the Times, .
is exaggerated, for ii immigration to
J these States is discouraged, there will
be a Tery grout scarcity of labor on
oar farms and plantations:
While thc Legislature of Virginia
is discussing tho best method of
fostering emigration to that State,
there come statements of cruelties !
and neglect of German emigrants
whose fate it is to have selected
Louisiana and elsewhere South for
their new home.
lt is said that these Germans aro
consigned to abandoned negro (?uar- ?
ters, -wretchedly fed, and, though ;
frequently dying ol' lever and other
diseases, are left unprovided with
medical attendance. At tho same:
time, the money which is due them
for work dunc is in many cases with
held. The consequence is that Ger?
man emigration is almost suspended, i
and the variety of reports which have '
reached Germany on the subject are
likely to prevent its resumption.
Whether these statements ure
' wholly or partly true, they ure un?
fortunate, and do not indicate .-i great
amount of wisdom on the part of
Southern employers of emigrant
labor. That labor is one of tho
means by which thc industrial re
cuperation of the regions which
have been desolated by war is to !>;?
brought about. There is the strongest
reason for encouraging and protect?
ing a class of men who. bein.-; used .
to work, ami of industrious habits,
could be relied upon for activity in
many departments of agriculture or
of other manual labor, and who are
intelligent and peaceable.
Many of the planters fail to recog?
nize how the war has changed the 1
relations of employer and employed; ?
thay cannot forget the old rule and j
its methods. And this, must have, of
course, its ill effect upon the "whole'
industry of the South. Thc state of |
things would be ol' less consequence
if the exodus of black labor from the j
South could be followed by an im
migration of white labor. This pro- I
cess had indeed begun, and by the !
assistance ?d' German agencies was!
likely to be successful. Now it is in !
a great measure stopped, however, as
we have described.
We clip the following from the
Baltimore Sun, of Saturday:
Whin; passionate partisans in the
House of Representatives at Wash?
ington delayed the bill (which, how?
ever, has now passed) appropriating
81,000,000 on the part ol' theGovern
ment for the relief of the starving
poor people of the South, the Legis
lat ure of Maryland, in a most credit?
able manner, responded to the cali of
distress by passing a bill appropriat?
ing $100,000, tobe immediately ap?
plied, through a board of competent
commissioners, iv. purchasing and
sending forward food to these suffer?
The board < onsistsof the Governor
of the State, the Presidents of the
Board of Trade and the Corn and
Flour Exchange, Lawrence Sang
ston, Esq., and three others to be
selected. These gentlemen, of course,
have such practical knowledge of the
duties which they undertake, the
means of communication with the
ports of the South as well as the in?
terior, where the relief is chiefly need- i
ed, that, with tin; kindly disposition j
and energy characterizing them, the
very best that can be done with the |
means ai hand is sure of accomplish
They aro privileged under the Act j
ol' the Legislature to receive and ap- |
ply any other sums of money or
I donations in any shape that may be j
made them for the object in view, |
and it would seem that any institu?
tions or individuals who would desire j
to aid in the good work, could dud no
better agency through which to dis
pense their bounty than ino commis-1
sion authorized under the Act of our
j Legislature. -
! The following letter, received in ;
! tins city yesterday by the gentleman
to whom it is addressed, explains it?
PHITJADEi^rEiA, March 21, 1807.
I John T. Ford, Esq.-DEAI: Sin: 1
' herein enclose to your care the sum
of live hundred dollars, tobe sent by
the safest and most expeditious way
in aiil of our suffering brethren in
I God himself only knows the full
I extent of their present sn Herings; it is
I enough for us to know they greatly
need our assistance. Let us, then, at
once do all we can to relieve their
dire distress, not stop to question
what is constitutional, "for charity
itself fulfills the law."
TU?- V. .."?-<> \-|>lr.
Tn the solution of thc most impor?
tant ami vital question of the present
century, the public men of Virginia '
have not exhibited that sagacity and
intelligence for which they were ouce
most justly renowned. Indeed, sine" j
thc famous resolutions of 179S-'99 i
wort; lost somewhere in the vicinity
of Appomattox Court House, in the
month of April, 1SG5, our bewildered
and unhappy politicians have moved
and acted as it' controlled by somnam?
bulistic influence. We have very |
unwisely, not to say foolishly, as?
sumed that tho emancipated and now
enfranchised blacks would, tinder the
malign influence of that very class of
white men whom the negro, as a i
slave, held in undisguised contempt, I
array themselves against those whom
it is to their interest fo propitiate.
Forgetting all which centuries of
slavery should have taught us of tho
natur?', temperament and prejudices
of thc blacks, we have for two years
loft thc negro at the mercy of those
who have impressed upon his plastic j
and unthinking mind the belief that
there were good grounds for violent j
antagonism between capital and labor, '
.and that, while white gentlemen were
his enemies, white rascals and vaga- ?
bonds wen1 his only friends and de-1
fenders. When emancipation rup- '
lured thc old ties of master and slave,
wc should have taken immediate steps
to convince thc freedmen that their
?dd masters were si i ll their best and
only friends. The poor black, who ?
had been all Iiis Ufe a parasite, cling- ;
iug to something stronger and moro'
vigorous than himself, when turned]
loose, ila/.eel and blinded by the no- .
velty of bis nev? state, should have nt ',
once been taught that the great laws
regulating the relations of labor and,
capital could not be abrogated by al
proclamation of emancipation. Wo
should at once have placed him upon ?
his guard against those wolves in :
she.p's clothing, who, thc moment i
the protection of his master was re
moved, pounced upon him like wreck
ers upon a stranded vessel. j
While we have lost much by failing |
to act with tho promptness and wis- !
dom of men like Wade Hampton, yet '
the relations between the freedmen ?
of Virgiuia and their employers have I
been, since April, ls? 55, ?'or thc most'
part so kind, that it is not yet too late :
to deliver them from those false and
malignant influences to which wc have ?
so often alluded, lt is also a peen- |
liarly fortunate circumstance that
evil-disposed and degraded white men
have, only in a few localities, sue- j
cceded in prejudicing the freedmen
against their natural friends and pro- !
tectors. Tu the agricultural districts, I
there will be no difficulty in teaching ?
them their true interests and linties. !
And here, in Richmond, and else- !
where, where the efforts to corrupt |
and demoralize the blacks have been
constant and persevering, a few efforts '
like that of Wade Hampton, in Co?
lumbia, will efface the vile lessons of I
renegade white men as easily as the j
waves of the sea do characters writ- |
ten upon its unstable sands.
Since the noble and timely example I
of Wade Hampton has attracted thc!
attention of the whole nation, and !
called forth tito plaudits of all think- j
iug men, even the New York Tribune |
admits that such a policy will render j
"lite .....;,.<> vole" harmless to tiie inte?
rests of the Southern capitalists. I
"No person," says Greeley, "was
ever taught by the Tribune that the (
colored vote would (//.'.'ivs be at, the I
command of itinerant political mis- !
sionaries from the Northern Slates.'" j
Wade Hampton's triumph consisted j
in his convincing the negroes not ;
only that there was no antagonism '
between white capital and black i
labor, but that the welfare of both \
races depended upon their electing to i
ollie.the best and most hone-, nu n.
they could. The idea was a simple
and a plain ono, and found a ready
lodgment in Cnffee'shead, ll is very j
easy for us to teach the same golden j
lesson to tiie blacks of this State, and j
the sooner we do it, the better for
lioth races.-Richmond Times.

KABITCAXi CONSTIPATION-HO IV
rO EFFECT A CEUTA IX A XI) 1'ER?
MA XE XT rem:. Seine occupations er
Ifc pro-dispose to costiveness, especially
::io.-e which allow but little exercise. Per
?ons who contract this unfortunate habit
. f body, umler such circumstances, might
possibly be relieved by changing their
sedentary employments for others of a
more active hind; but this is by no means
certain. Habitual constipation Ls a very
obstinate disorder. All the ordinary so
railed remedies invariably aggravate it.
Nothing can be more injurious than thc
continued use of strong aperients. They
at first irritate, and finally almost para?
lyze the bowels-rendering them so torpid
that enormous doses of cathartic medi?
cines have no effect upon thuin. A mild
aperient, combined with :i gentle stimu?
lant, is thc true remedy; and a combina?
tion, in the happiest proportion, of thoso
ingredients, is found in HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS. This famous sto?
machic invigorates thc whole intestinal
canal, while quietly removing from itscon
volutions all impediments to a free passage
through them. No mere purgative bas
this double operation. No ordinary stimu?
lant effects thc desired object. Cases of
constipation, abandoned as hopeless by
distinguished medical men, have been
cured in a few weeks by the Pitters. To
those who have tried all the medicine.? of
the dispensary in vain, we say, try this
?rn sistible stimulant and aperient. There
is no sntticier reason why constipation
should be thc consequence of scdeutarv
habits. HOSTETTER'S BITTERS, by sup?
plying the vigor which would otherwise be
derive.', from exercise, will in all cases en?
able the system to perform its excretory
(unctions regularly and lu althfully.
