THE MEETING OF COUNCIL.-There was
not such a large utteudauce nt the City
Hall last evening as ou the former occa?
sion, although the proceedings were a lit?
tle more varied thau usual. At quarter
past 8 o'clock, th o immaculate ma?
jority, now reduced to ?even, were iu
their seat?, looking as severely austero as
the patres cotiscripti of Home ia her balm?
iest Republican days; aud the Mayor
called tho meeting to order, much iu the
sanio manner as on tho previous occa?
sions. Alderman T. J. Mackey requested
the Clerk to call the roll. This being
done, tho Mayor declared that there was
no quorum. A motion to adjourn until
Tuesday next wus made. Tho Mayor
ruled a motion to fix a day of meeting
was out of order, and that next Tuesday
night being tho time appointed for the
regular meeting by ordinance, Council
would meet at that timo. Au acrimoni?
ous quibble here ensued, during which
Alderman T. J. Mackey stated that he
would show the parliamentary law on the
subject. They had adjourned to a fixed
time heretofore, and intended to con?
tinue to do so without reference to the
Chair. The ruling of the Mayor was
fought bravely by Aldermen E.*P. Wall
and T. J. Mackey, but after a long pause
the former hit upon au expedient. With
a potentous look, and solemn mien, ho
moved tho previous question, which mo?
tion had no other effect than to produce
a burst of laughter from the spectators
and Aldermen. Failing in this, he moved
an appeal from the decision of the Chair,
which tho Chair refused to entertain.
Alioth jr long pause ensued, and the faith?
ful six .seemed determined to stick it out,
when tho Mayor adjourned Council, and
left his seat. After a few moments cau?
cus, the majority (?) concluded to retire,
and did so. - Charleston Courier.
CHINA'S THREE HUNDRED MILLION
POPULATION TO RE DEPLETED.-The
Southern peoplo have for several years
been looking fora substitute for negroes
for furin labor, und the question of in?
troducing Chinamen was entertained
during and after the war by the land?
owners of that part of the country. A
company was organized not long ugo in
St. Louis, with the object of supplying
Southern planters with coolies, who, it is
proposed, uro to bo collected at St. Louis
and distributed into the South, in time
for the work ou next year's crop.
There nra in California between two
and three hundred thousand Chinamen
at the present time, and many more nre
constantly arriving from across the Pa?
cific. We wish to begin tho transpor?
tation of them to St. Louis os soon as
possible, and to have a large supply of
them on hand in time for the crops of
In answer to the principal inquiry in
regard to the introduction of Chinese
labor in tho South, (wo mean its cost,)
we can only say at present that wo esti?
mate the expense of transportation to
Selma at about $50 per head, the cost of
his labor at from $4 to $5 per month,

coolie as a laborer, it may, in conclusion,
be said that it is easy to make him a per?
manent fixture when he becomes located,

difficulty for a series of years together,
and he is noted for his faithful and reli?
gious adherence to his contracts.

. TJj? Qhi^p_ Time,<i, of tho 3d of June,
. 'There ia a boki&fo-houBQ at No. 70
Adams Btreot, where colored individuals
ot almost every conceivable tint of Afri-1
oanism are supplied with equally varie?
gated bash by ono Mrs. Scott. Among
the stove-polish hued Citizen?1 whoso
yearning stomachs are periodically sa?
tiated by three square meals a day at this
hotel de nigger, is n poor, earthly worm
known as Dr. j. Thomas.
This tiresome, heartless, mundane
sphere of ours had, it seemed, ceased to
possess nny particular charms for the
"doctor," who was anxious to let his
pure, bright soul out loose from its
ebony casket, and float serenely into
There were several reasons for his thus
desiring to sever all connections with
this disgusting world, the principal one
of which was that he was pecuniarily
constricted-tight in pocket-iu short, out
of "stamps." His piebald brethren do
not seem to have fully appreciated the
honor of being physicked by one of
their own color, and appear to nave pre?
ferred being dosed by M. D.'e of a
lighter 'tint.. At least Dr. Tliomas was
broke, and concluded to pay one great
debt--that of nature.
Dost evening, about 8 o'clock, Scott
observed that his medical lodger was ap?
pearing vory strangely, and found, upon
closer inspection, that the impecunious,
I dusky disciple of Galen was . quite ill.
' He couldn't look pale, but was, never?
theless, as Si^k a looking "moko" as
Scott had over beheld. The latter didn't
wish to have Thomas die ju. * yet, pre?
ferring to keep him alive uutil the board
bill was settled, and accordingly used
every exertion to restore him to a better
coudition. During the confusion at?
tendant upon tho affair, the following
letter was found in Thomas' room:
"CHICAGO, Juno 2, 1869.-Mna. SCOTT:
You can pay yoursolf out of my book?
and clothing. I paid you $2.50 yester?
day, and Mrs. Walden owes me a
dollar, which I told her to pay you. Tell
tho corporation to feed mo to the fisher,
or givo me to tho medical college, and
not go to the expense of burying me. I
take aconite to deliver me from this
world. I do not believe in n hell or fu?
turo punishment. Farewell, friend, and
farewell vain world. THOMAS."
But like all good stories, there was a
sequel to the matter that soon afterward
came to light, and did much toward alle?
viating the distress of Scott.
It seems that tho "doctor" must first
have taken the ncouite, but afterward
repented. He thought of the Haytien
embassadorship and the Chicago post
i ofiicu. Why should he despair when
I eligible positions like these were open to
? him? He didn't despair, but straight*
j way swallowed a lot of oil of sassafras,
known to be an antidote for tho poison
he had taken, and was once moro him?
self. Any person desirous of interesting
themselves to procure a first-class go?
vernmental office for ono of a down?
trodden race will ii uti it for their advan?
tage to consult with the repentant galper
of "cold poisou," Dr. J. Thomas.
.>TI>r Southern Field for the Unem?
We have received a large number of
letters from responsible meu in the South,
in response to several at tides in the
Democrat upon the field of labor there.
This, our correspondents see, nnd,
therefore, warmly commend the system
of emigration proposed by us. Our ad?
vice to those who desire to settle in the
productive Southern field is, that they
shall go there to work for themselves
not for the city capitalist. We would
.have them familiarize their miuds with
thc peculiarities of tho Southern coun?
try; ascertain the nature of tho soil, and
the crops it promises; then, by corres?
pondence with men who are there, not
ns speculators upon Ubers' needs, butas
citizens anxious for the improvement of
their localities, find from them where
lands art! to bo had, and on what terms,
and then go on and purchase.
Any industrious man at the North, to?
day, can make desirable terms for farms,
ami for himself and family a permanent
happy home. Thero is a strong desire
among the Southern people that immi?
gration there should bo of n class desir?
ing to have homes for themselves, and
to bo permanent citizens there. To such,
those of the Southern people who retain
their lands will readily sell, and on terms
which will enable, the industrious pur?
chaser to pay for his land from the orops
be grows. Thousands hereat the North,
who are now struggling for a precarious
subsistence, might there be building for
themselves comfortable homes, which
they would own instead of hire. To such
the Southern field is open; such will be
welcomed there, and such can establish
themselves on menus but a trillo more
than .suulcient to take them there.
That the South is now the field for
those who desire to have homes of their
own, and ar? willing to work to that end,
as no one will deny. Lands are cheup,
far cheaper than they will be a fow years
hence, und now is, perhaps, a better
time to make the change than hereafter.
Gentlemen at tho South, familiar with
its peculiarities of climate aud soil, will
readily givo all desired information to
snell ns incline to make the South their

gives the carpet-baggers of tho South
au oilier hint when hu says in u leading
editorial "that it is high time that South
ern Republicans should desist from bung?
ing around the neck of the North, and
begin to take care of themselves." The
fact is, th?se birds of prey are almost ns
much despised at thu North as at the
South. They are "going under" fast,
and the negroes had better cut their ac?

The great halls and parlors of this
crowded hotel aro a Continental ex?
change. Hbre aro trunks and valises
f>iled up like cord-wood, and variously
abeted "San Francisco," "Salt Lake,"
"Now York" and "Bangor." Here in
the evening every chair and sofa is filled,
and arm in arm through the long pas?
sages throngs of men go and come in our
eager national way, smoking and talk?
ing: Talking of all things under the
Heavens, but every,man of them, sooner
or later, touching upon the theme of the

wo hear hour after hour.
Meanwhile, one of tho most marked,
original characters of all this throng is
one of tho quietest nud least noticeable.
There bo sits, chatting carelessly in low
tones, a rather tall man, iu middle life,
his hair and whiskers beginning to show
streaks of grey, and his worn, mild,
thoughtful face shndefl by the limp brim
of alow-crowned hat. It is Thomas C.
Durant, manager and builder of the
Union Pacific Kail road. In the Central
Pacific Company-covering the Califor?
nia end of the line-three officers, Stan?
ford, Crocker and Huntington, have
shared the responsibility and work; in
the Union Pacific, Durant bad energetic,
persevering associates, but bo hos been
tho motive power-has borne the brunt
He was born among the Berkshire hills
of Massachusetts. He studied medicino
aud graduated at Albany, and tried to
j content himself us a pructioing physi?
cian, but with no other vent thou feeling
. pulses and writing prescriptions, his in?
born, restless energy would have left him
no peace. He became tho head of a
heavy firm for transporting freight from
New York to the West. It often carried
supplies for new railway companies, tak?
ing their securities in payment. Negotia?
ting these bonds familiarized him with
tho stock market. Then he got to build?
ing roads for himself, taking enormous
contracts, pushing forward tho work and
selling tho bonds-making fast friends
and bitter enemies-and becoming wide?
ly known ns a contractor and operator.
In the carly doubtful years of the war,
he M'ont into tho Union Pacific Company.
His first stop was to spend several
months in inducing Congress to change
the law, and make tho Government lieu
only a second mortgage upon tho road,
I that the company might issue its own j
I bonds as a first mortgage. Even after !
I this was done his Eastern associates
j lucked faith in tho enterprise. But his
whole soul was thrown into it; and he
furnished from his private means a large
portion of the first resources. Ho be?
lieved iu the nation, in tho West, in u
Pacific railway. "The fact was," ho ex?
plains, when asked about it, "1 had
built roods before over the prairies in
advance of settlements, aud I knew how
they bring population and moko busi?
ness from the very outset."
It was bard study. Even after the
money was raised, labor could hardly be
found. "The boys" were all in the war.
But men were gathered np, in Canada,
in New England, in Pennsylvania, and
sent forward 1,500 miles at the compa?
ny's expense. And tho number kept in?
creasing, till at ono time 18,000 laborers
After two or tbreo hundred miles were
finished, Durant's associates began to
seo that there were great profits, both in
the construction and in the traffic.
Fierce struggles arose iu the company
regular Wilderness battles, all of which
he saw and part of which he was. Theru
were men who declared his recklessness
and extravagance would ruin everything
-that ho was unfit to manage a ward
corporation-but I never heard of one,
who, after n conflict with bim, dispa?
raged bis ability.
Things were upon a grand r-cale.
Enormous excursions were sent out on a
grand scale from the East, over the line
iu palace cars, with a sumptuous regard?
lessness of expense. Tho offices of the
company were among thu most elegant
in New York. Brussels carpets and
black walnut and marble counters, in
the rooms of the managers, rare statuary
aud choice paintings surprised the eyes
of visitors. Dr. Durant's horses were
tho envy of Central Park, and his yacht
was tho nd m i mt ion of the New York
Yacht Club. I huvo seen him entertain
a party of ladies and gentlemen upon
it, down the bay, through an entire fore?
noon, as if he had not a care in the
world beyond the comfort of his guests;
und at 1 o'clock say nonchalantly, "Well,
good bye, I must go ashore; I have a
million of dollars to pay before 3 o'clock.
Herc your sail out, und don't return till
you get ready."
Moan while he was working liko a
galley slave. Sometimes be was hardly
in bed for u week; again, he would spend
nights and Sunduys upon thu yacht for
tho quiet nod cool air. Narcotics and
stimulants wero avoided that bo might
keep bis bruin clear. Ho plunged into
tho controversies in the company with
characteristic energy; and 1 fancy there
wero times when he could not have told
whether the next turn of tho whee]
would leave bim worth a few millions or
a few millions worse than nothing. But
the great work never flagged. Tho ex?
penses were enormous. Laborers were
paid as high as $3 ? ir day and board.
As tho road pushed on. everything -
workmen, food, iron, timber, fuel-had
to go forward upon tho singlo track, lt
was liko building a road from Chicago
to New Orleans, and carrying all the
supplies, even coal and bridgo timber,
from Boston. The telegraph bills alone |
amounted to a small fortune. Some?
t? mes* ia an emergency, ties, which had
bien transported 800 miles, were burned
fox fuel, H if
"I never saw such a man as Durant,"
exclaimed an old Western steamboat
captain, as three of us stroll the hall to?
gether. "Year before last, he mede a
contract with mo for transporting sup
plica to Omaha, ammountiug toa million
and ? half dollars; and he actually signed
that contract withont ever rondin g it.
He just glanced iat it and.said, 'Well,
captain; I suppose this IS nil right; and
wrote his name at the bottom.' And he
fulfilled it?" "Oh, yes; he paid trie the
"I never saw him excited bet once, "
observes oar companion, Dr. Bay, bf the
Chicago Post, "and that was at Bull
T on.. Ho had started out with a good
? jany of us, to go to Bichmond. When
the stampede began, he was the angriest
man I ever saw. He picked np a stake
and sprang right in front of the running
soldiers, and in spito of their muskets
and fixed bayonets, hit right and left,
shonting: 'Go back, you d-d cowards
go back!' And a good many of them
actually did turn baok."
At last, after his every nerve has been
strained for four years, he is foot-loose
once more. "The rails are laid," he
snjs, with a. quiet smile, "and now I
don't care whether school keeps or not."
As ho gets np for a stroll, we see the
chief mark that this terrible labor has
left bn him ; his frame is bowed, and he
looks like a modern Atlas, a little sur?
prised to find tbnt his. heavy borden has
rolled off. He bas done tho work; let
him have the credit of it. He is said to
own one-fourth of tho entire road. Now
he will devote himself to his private
affairs, which have taken caro of them?
selves during three busy years. Per?
haps, for this summer's recreation he
Will build the plaything of a railway to
the Adirondacks, in which he has a con?
trolling interest, and where he owns half
a million acres of land, more or less.
Where will his indomitable energy
next find vent? His mainspring seems
to be not love of money for itself, or of
notoriety in any sense, bot a love for
largo operations-a resistless desire to be
"swinging" great enterprises, and doing
everything on n magnificent scale. And
yet this man, who has chosen such a
stormy career, and who while yet under
fifty has carried forward such a stupen?
dous and historic work to completion,
half considers his life a failure, because
it has not been devoted to natural
science, the subject of ull others which
fascinates him, and in which he always
finds rest und recreation. It is the old,
old story, forever repeated, from the
vanitas vanitatum of the wiso king to the
"philosopede" soliloquy of Hnus Breit
"Oh, vot lab all dis earthly plias?
