Thc Memphis Convention.
The great Commercial Convention at
Memphis adjourned sine die on Saturday
afternoon, after passing resolutions of
thanks to the citizens and press of Mem?
phis. From the reports of tho proceedings
of the Commercial Convention, on "Wednes?
day, published in the Memphis papers, we
make the following extracts:
Mr. W. S. Hastie, of South Carolina,
submitted the following:
Whereas, tho disasters of war have de?
stroyed the banking capital of the South,
and as the high rates of interest paid by tho
planters of the South and South-west for
loans of foreign capital for tho last three
years, has swept away the profits of those
who have made partial crops, and almost
ruined tho planters on the sea-coast, whose
crops have failed for three successive years;
and as it au acknowledged fact that no agri?
culturist can safely pa}* moro than seven
per cent, per annum for loans dependent
upou tho chances of tho products of the soil;
and, whereas, in view of our largo national
debt, if it is of vitnl importance to tho inte?
rests of the United States that tho produc?
tion of cotton, tobacco, rice and sugar
should bo stimulated; therefore, bo it
Resolved, That tho Finance Committee of
the convention prepare a memorial to the
Congress of the United States for relief,
and to submit said memorial to this conven?
tion for its approval. The basis of tho re?
lief naked to be founded upon tho hypothe?
cation of the bonds of the several Southern
and South-western States with the United
States; said bonds of the States having
twenty years to run, and bearing nn interest
of six per cent, per anuum, payable semi?
annually, and receiving in lieu thereof the
bonds of the United States bearing six per
cent, interest per annum, payable semi-an?
nually, and tho bonds maturing at even
time with tho State bonds (twenty years.)
The funds realized from tho sale of the
United States bonds to bo invested in a na?
tional bank, to bc located in each State,
with such checks and balances as the wis?
dom of Congress may direct.
The amount asked for in no event to ex?
ceed one-lifth of the banking capital pos?
sessed by each State ou tho 1st of January,
1860. Referred to the Committee on Fi?
Mr. Hastio presented a long communica?
tion from John A. Wagener, Commissioner
of Immigration for South Carolina, in
which that gentleman expresses his belief
that Baron Beust, tho enlightened Austrian
Minister, would readily outer into arrange?
ments to promote trade relations between
that empire and the Southern Staten. Ho
also recommends the establishment of n di?
rect steamship line between Charleston and
Trieste, tho Austrian port on the Adriatic.
A communication from Commodore Iu
grnham was also referred to the same com?
mittee, in which that officer expresses his
opinion that, although tho distance between
Charleston and Trieste would be greater
than upon tho Northern route from Bromen,
the advantage of weather would, especially
in winter, bo in its favor.
To the committee on other business and
agriculture was referred a long communica?
tion from Senator F. A. Sawyer, of Charles?
ton, regretting his inability to be present e.t
the convention, and expressing the hope
that irritating topics would bo avoided.
The writer fears that too large a proportion
of the people, of more than ono race, are
non-producers. Let the manly work from
industry iud tho rest be shamed into it by
their neighbors, and our prosperity is
solved. Providence bas supplied priceless
gifts; let ns use them by our labor-that is,
make capital, buili railroads and levee
rivers. If the convention can teach this
lesson oi labor to our people, it will have
done more than politicians and projects of
Mr. G. H. Walter, of South Carolina,
submitted the following, whioh was roferred
to tbe Committee ou Railroads:
Whereas, tb 3 Bine Ridge Railroad, to
connect Knoxville, Tennessee, with a point
on tho Groenvillo and Columbia Railroad,
in tho State of South Carolina, by Acts re?
cently ratified, bas providod for the endorse?
ment of the bonds of the said company to
tho extent of 84,000,000; and whereas, by
the completion of this road and tho connec?
tion of Knoxville with Cincinnati by rail, a
continuous line of railway from tuc great
WOHL to n Southern port on the Atlantic
will thus be opened by the shortest, most
desirable and practicable route.
Resolved, That in the opinion of this con?
vention it is eminently to the interest of
Southern and South-western States that the
Blue Ridge Railroad should bo at once com?
pleted, and we cordially commend this en?
terprise to the people cf tho South-west.
Mr. Millett, of South Carolina, submitted
Whereae, this convention has assembled
to devise menus for developing the resources
of the South in building the Southern Pa?
cific Railroad, in leveeing tho Mississippi
River, and making available the mineral
treasures of the Mississippi valley; and
whereas, to accomplish theso ends it is
essential to increase our labor; and to
increase our labor, immigration from
Europe must, bo had by means of steamers
of heavy draught and largo capacity, plying
directly between Southern ports and Eu?
rope; be it, therefore,
Resolved, That in tho opinion of this
convention the great harbor of Port Royal,
on the thirty-second parallel of latitude, is
one of the greatest porta of the South At?
lantic coast, and that the railroad from that
point to Augusta, Georgia, should be com?
pleted as speedily as possible.
Mr. Millett, in offering his resolution,
said that in the Southern States they must
have immigration, and must put forth all
their efforts to procure it. In regard to di?
rect trade, it hud been said that they had
no Southern port to compete with New
York where immigrants oould land.
Within the past fifteen years a great
chango had taken place in regard to the
vessels carrying passengers across the At?
lantic. Fifteen year* ago they hud wooden
ships, then they got hide-wheel steamers,
but noa* there were iron propellers. And
out of ninety-fivo vessels engaged in tho
ocean trade to and from New York, only
two were side-wheels. The average tonnage
of the propellers was 2,500, and few wero
below that, mid all or nearly nil drew nine?
teen feet of water, and South of Capo Hat?
teras they had no port that had over sixteen
feet at the bar. In the State which he rep?
resented they had a port whero tho waler
was twenty feet deep. He had only to re?
nnick thut in South Carolina they had a har?
bor equal to New York, and that harbor
was Port Royal.
Tho resolution v. as referred to the Com?
mittee on Immigration.
Mr. William S. Hastie, of South Caroli?
na, introduced the following, which was re?
Whereas, by Act of Congress, passed
March 28, 1854, certain cities of tho West
aud South-west ure allowed to import goods
ia bond through the cities of Boston, New
York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and New
Orleans, entirely iguoring Norfolk, Vir?
ginia, uud Wilmington, North Carolina, and
limiting Charleston and Savannah to three
points-Knoxville, Nashville and Memphis;
and whereas, since the passage, of that
law the Southern Atlautio cities havo made
extensive railroud connections with the West
Resolved, That the Committee on Direct
Importation be requested to framo a peti?
tion to Congress, asking that all ports of
entry in the United States be placed upon
the same footing as to the importation of
goods in bond by iuterior cities.
A report in favor of holding uuother con?
vention at Louisville, on the 12th of Octo?
ber next, also for a committee of one from
ouch State, to preparen constitution and by?
laws for the convention, to bo reported at
the next meeting, was adopted.
The following resolutions by Mr. Austin,
of Tennesseo, were adopted:
Resolved, That the delegates here assem?
bled from all parts of the Southern States
fully represent tho spirit and purposes of
the groat body of tho Southern people.
Resolved, That this convention, in justice
to tba members and in justice to tho people
of the United States, deem it expedient nnd
proper on this occasion to declare that there
is not now, and has not been since tho sur?
render of the Confederate armies, any other
purposo or design on tho part of tho great
mass of tho peoplo than a cordial and
thorough restoration cf fraternal ?dations
in all sections of this broad land.
Resolved, That it is tho deliberate opinion
of this convention that erroneous impres?
sions upon the minds of the people of each
section iu regard to the other, so easily
made and so hard to remove, have been and
nov/ are the greatest obstacles in tho way
of prompt and thorough adjustment of our
political and industrial relations, which
would create peace, contentment and uni?
versal prosperity throughout tho eutiro
Resolved, That a copy of those resolu?
tions be presented to the President of tho
United States by a committee of one mem?
ber from eaoh State here represented, ap?
pointed by the President of this conven?
Of the committees appointed, the Hon.
Wm. Spragno, of Rhode Island, was ap?
pointed tho chairman to memorialize Lue
Cotton Supply Association and the Associa?
tion of Manufacturers and Planters, with
regard to production of cotton.

The County and Town of Newberry-No. 9.
To NORTHERN CAPITALISTS AND IMMI?
GRANTS: The County of Nowberry, agricul?
turally considered, lies within au extent of
territory running from Chester County and
extending into Georgia, whioh has been
pronounced by a distinguished man to be
the finest cotton land in the world, except?
ing no place. Tho soil is also finoly suited
to the cultivation of the cereals. Since the
war, by a little extra pains and labor, toge?
ther with manuring, lands that formerly,
under tho pull down mid drag out system,
produced only B?X bushels of wheat to the
nore, have been made to produce twenty-five
bushels, and as of fine quality us eau almost
be produced anywhere.
As to water power, there is an ample
abundance of it. Numerous streams wind
through its area. It is one amoDg the finest
watered Counties in the State. This is cer?
tainly a great inducement for large manu?
facturing investments. The climate is in
tho highest degree favorable, while in the
lending branch of all manufactories she has
an advantage over the Northern States that
is, in time, bound to give her both capital
and population-that is, manufacturers eau
spiu and weavo cotton on the ground where
it is raised. This is decidedly a great ad?
Probably there might be some apprehen?
sion in suspicious minds as to the facilities
for the transporting of goods, if they should
be manufactured ou a large scale. 13ut wo
think no fears need be entertained. Upon
this poiut capitalists may rest secure, upon
that honest but true maxim, which is as
readily applicable to great business matters
as to individuals, that "necessity is tho mo?
ther of invention." Railroads will be gra
dually built, in proportion to the demand
for them aud tho increase of business, and
at no very distant day, nevertheless fogies
and carpers, they will be spread over this
country like a net-work, if there is bestowed
tho proper energy and enterprise in tho de?
velopment of our manufacturing and agri?
cultural resources. Tho advantages con?
ferred by tho God of nature arc amply suf?
ficient to enable capitalists to competo suc?
cessfully with New England, Old England,
or any other manufacturing country under
Among tho advantages that may bo reck?
oned as not inconsiderable, is tho vast dif?
ference in climate. For inctance, Lowell,
in Massachusetts, is situated in latitude
421 o North. The climato is very cold. In
mid-winter, not only there, but all North,
the mills are seriously interfered with by
freezes. For six or eight months of the
year it is essentially necessary to raise, by
artificial means, the temperature of the at?
mosphere in order that the spindles and
looms may run successfully. The furnaces
and fuel required to produce this artificial
heat form no inconsiderable item of ex?
pense. From ali this this, climate is entire?
ly exempt. Farther than this, there is a
material per centum-say those acquainted
-in favor of the South in the comparative
operation of thu atmosphere of tho two
climates upon tho machinery and upon cot?
ton, from its raw state, through the various
processes to which it is subjected. You can
work machinery here of any kind at all
seasons of tho year without having to resort
to artificial heat.
You may ask tho question, tho healthful?
ness of tho Southern climate; of this Coun?
ty for white laborers? We aro satisfied that
many-in fact, all portions of tho South
are as favorable to thc health of white labor?
ers as any country. However it may be as
to the health of white laborers in cotton
fields, exposed to tho hot sun and morning
dows in the full season, wo are disposed to
think that the negro, free os he is, is better
suited as a field laborer in tho South than
tho white man can ever be: yoe, there can
bo no doubt that white men, women and
children in many portions of the South,
particularly in this County, will bo equally
as healthy in factories as the operatives in
similar establishments in any part of the
world. They can have better food, better
clothes, better homes and cheaper, and, in
fact, everything in more abundance than
Considered in a commercial point of view,
the town of Newberry has no superior in
this State, outside the city of Charleston,
having a surrounding country fertile and
productive, and offering as fine, if not finer,
inducements for trade than any town in the
interior; all of which ha? been derived from
the swift foot of the iron horse, whose
clattering stamps is heard day after day
wending its way from the sea-board to the
mountains, and whose strong bnck brings
and carries away untold amounts of mer?
chantable and agricultural wealth.

incredulous; but if you have read tho testimony
of tho eminent citizens, in every walk of life, who
bavo teated tho preparation, and submitted tho
reaulta of their experience to tho public through
the press, you ought at least to havo sufficient
faith to mako a trial of it in your own case. It is
a puro vegetablo tonic and alterative-tho only
