An adjeoaned meeting of the Chamber of Comrn

others, interested in the jrain trade, was held last
evening la the larg room of the Chamoer of
Commerce. Geoo. A. Foediok, Esq., president,
called ,the meeting to order at 7:15 r. Y., sod
stated, that n complianoe with a resolution

Mr. Blayback, in offering the following resela

Id Mr. Smith moved that the report be received.
t The president then announced that the resolu
tlons were before the meeting for adoption.
Mr. Sturgis asked if gentlemen subscribing
for the stock would become liable, In case of
the failure of the company,'for more than their pro
SýeaMare of 1ock owned by them.
1, Mr Phillips afid that St. Louis was only a local
masrtk; tht. large supply of grain would over
borden thelarmarket and cause a depression in the
price b that*eompany had been started there
a with capital of $200.000, so that when the supply
a was over It could be shipped hither. He hoped
that the people of New Orleans would be In earo .
eeat, and subscribe the amount elled for; that at
s, the present time tire twas an advantage of ten
cents per bushel in grain shipped from here over
that shipped from an Eastern market; that if
trade Is sent here tonnage would be sure to come.
ra Mr. Summers, of the Crescent City Bank, said
It' that be was not a member of the chamber yet;
as a banker he was interested in this movement,
and stated that a law was passed last summer
el. legalinsg loans made on warehouse receipts, and
p) that the bank he represented would do all t could
and would lend on such reoeiptsit the market was
a. hbd or depremed.
. M r. Tker w satisied that the only thing for
d- us to do was to be in earnest. Show the people
c. of the West that we could handle their grain and
it would be sure to come.
@ Mr. Ogleaby, in a fe a remarks called the atten
o. tion of the meeting to another feature In this
31 trade, Mr. Hlgby had built an elevator at a cost of
o. ~248,tO. of which $199,000 were his own private
d- funds. When be started this enterprise he was
, led to believe that he would only be required to
advance $100,000, but that citienas would sub
s:o erlbe the balance; but in consequence of the
i general depressaion of buinese the subscrlptions
had not been filled and he had been compelled to
at complet the work with his own private means.
He thee ere could be no better Investment
of the funds collected than to pnrchase the Ele
at rator Company stock and with the surplus per.
i; chase gramn; it would be something in a taMgible
g shape-something that could be seen. Here was
San elevator, thIe largest but one in America. Mr.
Higby we now In the West, working for the in.
i. terest of this community, and he hoed the mer*
it chanats here would help him.
Gen. Cyrus Busy said that no question of so
much Importance had ever come to the attention
n. of the people of tbhis city. The people of St. Louis
Sare doing more for our benefit than we are doing
for ourselves. Nothing could or would be done
until a found Is created. As this is a natural cotton
market. so, by aecumulating grain here. we could
r- make it a natural grain market, and ships would
Ig quickL come for it. What if the bar is an ob
stacle. There are plenty of ways to flank it, and
Snot by the Bhip Island Canal at that. but by
Sanother one below the city, called the Mississippi

, only require to be cut the short distance
of two and a half miles. The whole
SWestern trade would thus find its way
y through the city and not cotton and grain only.
of New Orleans could then compete with the North.
h West in furnishing pine lumber, etc., by drawing
ber supplies direct from the piney woods in Mrs.
Ssiseiplpi. He hoped every one would go to work,
raise the $200 000, elect d!-eersr uch as E. Ogle4
by or other gentlemen present, and show the
e West that this was the only route for them to be
. supplied by, and to supply in return.
S Mr. Ogleeby urged again a subscription to the
stock of the grain elevator, and eail that this
I course would not interfere in any mrnuer with
r any well devised plan of a grain association and
that the Grain Elevator Company were not a
S sponopoly. as he had heard some gentlemen tta'e.
Mr. Blorwell spoke of the enterprise of Mr.
1 Higby with much feeling; was matisfied that he
e, was a man of enterprise and induetry. There isa
p mode by whichb the gramn assoriation and subscrip
tions to the grain elevator might be united in one.
When the moneyed lnst:totins of thie city f"el dis
pooed to make advances then the chief dificulty
O w l be overcome.
0 Mr. M. J. Smith thought that the smn was en
t'rely too small; that two hundred thousand dol.
lirs would be no where with a million or more
a, ushelis of wheat. lie believed with other ge
tlrmen that the only dlin.ulty in the way was the
apathy and Iedliference of the banks and moneyed
institntcns as to the proposition of subscrip:isn
of money; he would wish the undertaking God
o speed; he did not thiuk that the bar at the
mouth of the Missisppi could not be removed;
e would lIke 1 em the eal propsend some
puar ago eut through from the isslspi to the

HER CARGO DISCHARGED.
As was stated would be the case In our last edi
tion, Imspetors Buchanan and Wright yesterday
morning commenced, by the aid of a stevedore,
to discharpge the ergo of the brig Christa 0. CoEl
aen, the selsure of which under such singular olr
comutanoe has been already described. The re
salt was that about 200 bales of trash or moats,
worth to all intents and purposes nothing, have
been taken out and sent down to the asymanaki
ootton pres, where farther examinatioa is to be
made. Some of the bales are reported as being
very heavy. One of these Inspector Wright en.
amined by tearIn it open., but discovered no
igns of anything eeoeealed within it.
The Picayune of last evaain saysa: "We re
ferred in this morning's irns to a sealed letter
which had bees delivered to Capt. Cain, to be
given to Capt. Baker when the vessel should get
to sea, and have succeeded in getting a copy of
the dame. Capt. Cain, it seems, has not left the
city, and opened the letter, which we subjoin,
and whil diseleses a knowledge on the part of
the ,tppe ot se uaoerwrttmrs hting gBeed
Information of the plot:
SCapt. Baker, If Oelo.m:
"Br--Tbs will be handed to you it the dark,
sad I advise yra o pay attention to its cotents.
It is well knows to the board of underwriters of
this city that you take the brig Colson to sea with
the latentlos of destroying her ea the
passage between here and Liverpool; they
are also awse of the uaLure of the
cargo; they know that a large number of
bales of osean have been split and shipped as
soead hales, also that ' meate' have been shipped
and insured as cotton. As soon as the loss of
your vessel is telegraphed to this city, Mr. J. C.
F., the shipper of the cargo, will be arrested. I
noderstand it is also the intention to arrest you
wherever you may land. Under these ciroum
stances I leave you to do as you may think most
proper for your employers.
"Your vessel meet reagh Liverpool, even if you
leave bet before she gets there.
"I trust you will receive this from one as a
friendly warang, and from one who does not
wish to see you rush blindly into trouble.
"The letter, It will be seen, Is enuched in am
biguous language, and it is difficult to see why ''
friend" did not warn Capt. Baker before the time
for the vessei'toleave had arrived. Who this soliol
tons friend is remains to by seen. We know, how
ever, of a party who stated the substance of the
above letter to a merchant of our city three days
ago, and long before it was unsealed by Cain. Per.
haps this party can explain how he became pos
sessed of such information, and it is certainly in
oumbent upon him to do so, or rest under suspi
clon of complicity."
It is hardly necessary for us to state that the
Capt. Cain above referred to, is not the superisn
tendent of poliee who bears that title.
