The Meeting of the Chamber of Com merce Yesterday The Ball Set in Motion - Important Resolutions Adopted. k Chinese Labor Convention Called for the 13th of July. Interesting Addresses from Hon. Mr. Clap p. Capt. Butler An derson and others. About thirty gentlemen, among them our most public spirited and in fluential citizens, assembled yester day at midday at the Chamber of Commerce in responcc to the call is sued a few days since for a meeting of those in favor of the importation of Chinese laborers, to devise ways and means to effect the same. The heavy rain which came up just at the hour set for the meeting and continued for some time no doubt determl a larger attendance. The meeting was called to order by the Hon. Mr. Clapp, and Mr. Charles Kortrecht called to the Chair, Capt. (i. W.tjifl being requested to act as Secretarv. Mr. Kortrecht in awumlng the Chair returned thanks, and said there were others who had given the sub ject more attention and were there Yore better qualified to preside than he. He then suibii the object of the mis ting, which was only preliminary to a larger gathering of those inter ested. Capt. Anderson moved that the Chair ippoint a committee of five to prepare a series of resolutions expres sive of the objects, etc., preparatory to a future meeting. Adopted, and Messrs. Anderson, Moore, Nelson, Ayers and Miles Owen appointed on the committee, which immediately re tired. Mr. Ayers desired to be relieved .from acting on the committee, but the Chair stated that he would have other committees to appoint and would pre fer for him to act. While the committee were out, Capt. Grift read the following dispatch from San Francisco, received during the morning. It was as follows: San Fi:avcis-o, June I . Tni. W.tiin, etc.: Does the meeting at Memphis take place on the 13th of July ? Kaapmaiis (haap. principal Chinese importer, will attend if the answer is favorable. J. i. KASTI.A.VD. Capt. Gift moved thai the meeting adjourn until July l.'tth, and that a committee be appointed to make ar ringenients for a convention to b held in this cit- on that dav to meet Mr. Kaapmanschaap. Mr. Gates wanted to know whether the meeting was called to take action on this question, or to di-cu-s it. II wanted to discu-.- it. Judge I'erKms suggested the pro pnetv of naming either the i;ith prox or some other subsequent day, in order to linng the move well hetore the pub lic. He thought there was no differ ence of opinion as to the profitable ness or utility oi the movement, though of course there could be n objection to a discussion of it. Before the motion of ( apt. Gift could lie put, the Committee of Kivt came in, and through their Chairman, (. apt. Anderson, reported as follow- Whkkkas, Among the nunierou Obstacles in the way of the revival of business and prosperity in the South during the past four years, no other L more keenly lelt iy the whole com niunitv than the want of efficient and reliable labor in agriculture. Under a ystem of labor which wa- subject t the control of industry and enterprisi we prospered lor half a centurv as rapidly as the ino-t sanguine could desire. This was the natural result of unlimited resources developed bv the steady hand of systematic labor in tin fields of the countrv. Now manv those fields lie idle. It is impractica ble to obtain labor to till them. Thh fact cannot be attributed to the want exertion and eflbrt on the part of the land-owner. lie has ottered and paid the highest price lor all such la bor as could be obtained, and that ha proven to lie entirely insufficient to meet the demands of the countrv The natural consequence small crops aste lands and a scarcity or that wealth which the generous hand of nature o bounteously upplic, fol low-. To provide against such const alienees in future, experience teaches us that one ol the Iks-i and surest methods of doing so is to seek the em plovment of the reliable, industriou and patient Chinaman as a laliorer in our rice, cotton, sugar ami OOBCCO fields. Steps have already teeii taken by the citizens of neighboring Stati and ts-peciallv bv our enterprising neighbor- in the Arkansas alley, to accomplish this purpose. That part oi the country trading with Mcmphi mast not lag behind any other section in any effort to revive the prosperity ot tne wnoie nuiiii ; therefore lietolven, I liat in the oiiimon ot tl is meeting the be-t interests of tin -viutn require mai an legitimate m- nii fincnts hall be offered at once to encourage the emigration of Chinese laborers, in large numbers, direct from China to supply the great demand now existing in the South Ibr steady and reliable labor i(eoirri, inatiii order in aceom plish this purpose a Convention to consider the question- and mature a plan of co-ojK'ration be called to meet at this place on the 18th of July to be composed of delegales from li -parts ol the South, especially from Georgia, Alabama, MLssiwipj.i, Louisiana, Texa-, Arkansas and Temu-ssef, and that each county, city and town In tfose State- ;; re hereby r.-(.-f.-(I to -end such delegates. (apt. AnderscM moved that the re Mrt nc adopted. Mr. Gabs- moved that the reporl be so amended as to invite discussion. The Chair -tated that such an amendment was not necessary, as the motion to adopt implied the' right to discuss. Mr. Nelson said that he iiad under stood that Capt. Anderson had had considerable experience with Chinese labor, and as most of those present w ere ignorant of the subject, he would suggest that Capt. Anderson address them. Capt. Anderson said he would do with pleasure. The subject had, how ever, been ventilati-d jn thedtv pa per-, and all the information that he ttl had been fumi-h.-d to h eitv paper (the Appeal). His experience with Chinese, as la I Hirers. hl not been, however, a cotton r-iiser- hut in the mines, in a country where cot ton would not grow, where it is so cold that even the mercury congealed in the thermometers, but never had he seen any laborer- so true or faithful to their employers, who worked so steadily, conscfentioiiuiv and faithfully, without ever seeming to tire. They were skillful, too, in ali the trades used in their own countrv. and were easily taught, readilv ac cepting lesRons from any who took the pains to teach them. The main thine that they looked after was the money. He knew of no valid obiection to them. One that lias been urged most persistently is that they are heathen. That is groundless. They are ulolattrs but not heathen. 1 hey are an educated people. During five years' intercourse with them, he had never met with one that could not sign his name to a i.teipi ftIt (p,t not understand its contents, They do not worship our God, and have a profound contempt for a white man, and much greater for a negro. They have their own literature, arts and pro fessions carried on as systematically as we have. There is another thing Which ought to be understood about them; they all leave China with the expectation of returning thither; they never emigrate, never leave there to settle( and they have no disposition to colonize or purchase homesteads. Another thing they bring with them their own traders, and trade and deal altogether among themselves. As has Deen stated in the papers, all the importation of Chinese is done through their own principal houses. From one end of the coast to the other the Chinese laborers all have been ob tained In that way. The laborer seems to be an employee of these houses. They have their head men who have their understandings wi:h them. There are six such houses in San Francisco, and all the Chinese lalcr ers on the Pacific coast seem to con sider themselves subjects of those houses, and pay them tribute, the houses supplying their wants, etc. If one thousand ot them were landed in Memphis to-morrow, in ten days they would have their own trading pla -e established. They never desire to be fed by their employers, but prefer to feed themselves. The principal reasons why they will make such good labor ers are, in fine, they are patient, in dustrious, constant and true to their employers; are doci'.e, not quarrel some, and the criminal records show them to be the most law abiding peo ple in the world. They commit no crimes except larceny. They will steal whenever they have a chance to do so without being detected, but if there is a probability of being caught, they w ill never attempt it. They have no conscience on that subject. As to affiliation or amalgamation, they will never do anything of the sort. He had never seen but one Chinese mar ried in this country. As a race they are physically not large. ( ne as large as himself, (the speaker) would be considered a giant. They are of light frame and not stout, not able to pull and haul like one of our sailors, but they will work longer and stick to it iH-tier." Thequestion was a-ked by a gentle man w hat wage- they would expect to get . Capt. Anderson said his impression was they could lie got ery low. When lie hired them he pew three dollars a day for them, whfli paying eight for white men say in the pro portion of three to eight, as compared to the rati-; paid white laborers. He thought they could be got for from eight to twelve dollars per month. This was at least the best information that he had got. The agent who is coining will come prepared to answer all these questions definitely, and whatever this agent may do will be faithfully carried out by the laliorers. They carry out all contracts most scrupulously. The reason of this, the TpraVfT naid. In that there are laws in China which punish any infringement of CPU bract made through their com panies, and requiring them to oliey their employers. To recur to the sub ject of pay, the Pacific Railroad Com pany paid them thirty-one dollars per month in gold and they fed them selves, and living on the Pacific Bond was very dear. Capt. (iift said he could give a defi nite answer on this point, as he had received a letter from a gentleman in San Francisco, who writes that the agent had put In a proposition to fur nish laborers in any required quantity for thirteen J IS) dollars jht month twenty-six (w) days work of" ten (10) hours each, and Vice and pork fur nished. Mr. Davis, of the Pacific Kailroad Company, stated that that road va now employing them at one dollar per diem in currency. (apt. Anderson said that he fiad no hesitation in saying they could be got for from one-third to one-fourth of a white man's wages. He moved, in conclusion, that the report be adopted, Mr. (iates did not want that en couragement to be given to the move ment until it wa- discussed. Judge Perkins said that he did not see that the passage of the resolution would be giving the movement any encouragement. This meeting was called simply to determine the expe diency and profitableness of the intro duction of Chinese labor. These reso lutions simply proposed to invite everybody to a convention where they i could De thoroughly informed on the ubjeet. nr. Wilson thought a committee ought to be appointed to see about the cost of transportation, for, as he un-der-tood, it was necessary to pay the money for that in advance before the laborers start. The resolution was read again, and Mr. iats again wanted to discuss them. The whole tenor tended to compromise the matter, lb- had a written opinion on the subject winch he thought would crush the rising tendency to import this kind of labor. I Mr. Clapp said that he would con-! cede that the report did take for grant- j nl the necessity and importance of ! the Importation of Chinese labor, and ! he concurred in it heart and soul. and he did not believe there was a man of any observation that did not see the thing in that light. He was. he believed, aware of some of the ob jections that would be urged by the gentleman (.Mr. (iates) against it. 1 he conflict ot race- u a- one, but he maintained that we had here a field i for two distinct classes of laborers. We ' would open our lands and arm-, and extend a cordial creetinir to the Irish, i the Germans and other white labor crs, but the larger portion of our lauded proprietors wish to retain their estates and cultivate them as in old times. The Germans and other w bite im migrants who came hither." said the siieaker. "do not come to cultivate iur staple-, which properly belong to , the alluvial lands, which are un- j friendly to the Caucasian race, few of I whom would not fall early victims to ! the miasmatic and malarious disor- lers of our swamp lands. Th, (jpr- i mans who come fiere are tike our- selves, only we have the advantage of icing acclimated. If we can t live there, (in the alluvial lands,) still less could they hope tolo so. Neither do j they wLh to go in herds and be eon-; trolled by one man. Their object i to obtain and cultivate small farm- for themselves on the uplands, where they can devote themselves to the arts and manufactures as well as agricul ture. Each class seeks the field of labor best adapted to : it. We want skilled labor, for which there is a gnat openinir. Go into one of our stores, w here the art icles of use in every dav life are for : sale; take your memorandum book and commence at the door, and put down the articles that are nianutiic- tureu in our midst. an! how manv would you find? Not many. (A voice, " Not one.") We havecarried out the most exhaustive system that the world ever saw. W e have sent away to buy every article of home consumption. The very shirts that we have u-sui our backs, as we sit here, are a speci men. The rasv material was grown, perhaps, In twenty miles of Memphis, but it had to go to Lowell pea, it hajis across the ocean be manufac tured and n-tunied to no thf ornfits all going to the middle men 'n people on earth, not blessed as ours, : coimi imc sioou u. llau we not have had the richest natural gifts we would to-day tie the poorest of people. All that we now want Is la bor to develop those vast natural re sources, so that w e tan take the raw material and put the labor on K and keep our money at home. We must make the spindle our scepter. But t hen L another field of labor in the alluvial land- the swamp. For these we need dark-skinnea laborers, Mongols or Africans, who luxuriate where the white man would perish. This shows the wisdom of God who lias thus or dained that the human race is to go forward and develop the whole earth to its nethermost parts. These are the lands that the Chinese are wanted to cultivate. But, I hear the gentleman say, that " when the uplands are set tled up the negro will re forced into the swamp" And in the meantime are we to starve ? Are our lands to lie idle? The negro will not volun tarily go to work. From Madagascar to Canada that country does not exist where the negroes engage in volun tary labor. They had him in the West Indies, and he converted them into a garden, hut when the negroes ceased to be guided by the whites the Islands liecanie a wilderness, and the inhabitants became savages again. We want lalor to till these swamps, and we must have it, or let our lands revert to a wilderness. As to the mixture of races--have we not a mixture among us now that cannot be worse? Ilave not the mast stolid and ignorant race lieen made the gov erning power? Is not the whole social pyramid inverted? There is a some thing about the Chinese that re commends them especially to us. Where is there anything among us that is stable? If we had an investment to make, and wished to find something that is fixed, stable, and where permanency could be surely predicted, where would we seek for it? Look at Spain. Her power has crumbled away, and she i no longer anything among nations. The spirit of resolution and change has attacked every government in Kurope. Even Fngland, whose tlag baa braved a thousand years the bat tle and the breeze, now feels it. and is seething with political disturbances. But here is a form of government that has existed since before the memory of man t liar goes lieyond the light of history. We know that nations are apt to magnify the ancientness of their chronology, but we know that lor thousands of years the Chinese gov ernment has existed, and that they are to-day the most prosperous people upon' whom the sun shines. There must be .something valuable in insti tutions that have accomplished such results. The jieople are a valuable acquisition to any country. No won der they are patient a people accus tomed to mechanical operations for thousands of years! These are the very people we want. They don't come among us to mingle in politic-; they do not seek to U- naturalised even. They come hen- from their teeming hives, and expect to go back, carrying with them the scanty pit tance that they have earned. Why should that be IiegrudgtHl to them, when it is weighed against the good that they have done? A-to the in ternecine struggle between the Chi nese and negro that we hear about, we don't know that that i- any affair of ours. I have a kindly regard for the negro, but I don't want him to be hung a- a millstone' around our necks. Externa ination is his doom. The supremacy of the white race must Ik- vindicated Underall circumstances. rApplause.1 The history of the world shows that the inferior race must be exterminated when it sets itself in an tagonism to the superior, and unless the interior race here, or that may come here, chooses to recognize that fact, they must become the victim-. Applause. J There will be no amal gamation. The superior race w ill not comedown to the inferior. The his tory of Mexico shows the disastrous effects oi miscegenation. But there would be no amalgamation and no serious collision. The white immi grant who comes here will identify himself with his own race and people. The antipathy of races Is higher and -uperior to all other feelings, and will assert itself. The country needs the Chinese and must have them.'' The speaker concluded by saying that In- endorsed the resolution's to their full extent. As he was about to sit down, Capt. (iift handed him a memorandum showing the criminal statistics of some portions of Califor nia, where one-half the population were Chinese. Out of six hundred prisoners there were but fifhfn Chi nese. "Go through this country," said Mr. Clapp, "and where will you find such a disparity existing in favor of any equally numerous class in a community?" At the close of Mr. Clapn's remarks, which were listened to with wrapped attention, Mr. (iatts; got the floor, and after again asking to discuss, hauled out a roll of paper about the size of a bolster, and the la-t report of the De partment of Agriculture. Some of the audience who foresaw w hat was coming made their escape, but the majority kept their -eats. Mr. (iates made a few pre paratory remarks a!ut not being blessed wth the "gift of gab'' like Mr. Clapp, but he had written out his ideas at length, which he then and there proceeded to read. We cannot umienaKe to give even a -ynopsis i Wa dissertation, Bovohiniinoofl was it, but If was a protest couched in the most grandehxpient language, against tlu -in of importing heathen-. After reading ten closely and compactly written pages of foolscap and consum ing twenty-seven minutes, Mr. (iates got into the agricultural report and started into the improved cultivation of cotton by the uSe of fertilizers. He had read some ten minutes on this when the Chair called him to order and informed him that his reading and w hole address were irrelative and out of order. Mr. (iates was offended at this, and said that if his reading I was disagreeable he would discon- tinue it. He had not undertaken to ' road without permission. The Chair stated that when permis ! sion was granted he did not have a i copy of the call setting forth the ob iject of the meeting at hand, and , thought that the speech or address ' was concerning these objects. A motion was made to allow Mr. Gates togoou with his n-ading, which, a division licmg called, was pail led by fifteen to seven. "Mr. (Jates then -resumed the thread of his discourse and read some five or eight minutes longer. At his conclusion Mr. . K. Moore took the floor and said that if the very elalsirate oration or address had been deliveml a hundred years ago it might have had some relevancy. Now it is very patent that it bad none. Laliorers we want, and labor ers we must have. This was an indi vidual enterprise, and individuals that Wanted them, like Mr. Ayres' friend in Mississippi, would engage them and bring them here. If Mr. Gates lid not want them he need not take any. The question on the adoption of tin report was then called and decided in the affirmative In a unanimous vote. Capt. Gift then renewed his motion that a pointed t ominitn-e oi linrieen oc ap pointed to make arrangements for the Convention on the 13th of July. Adopted, and the ( luur appointed Messrs. G. . tuft, .

Sol- To iko Soldiers of i he late t 'onfaderste Arml: At a recent meeting held in the city of Memphis by a large number of the soldiers of the late armies of the Con federate States, it was resolved to form an association for the assistance of those who required aid and became members of the organization for the assistance of the widows and orphans of those who would be entitled to en ter the organization, and for the further object, if so desired, -of co operating with the Ijadies' Associa tion for the decoration of the graves of their tlead comrades. It Ls ne cessary that all soldiers who served faithfully in the war should join in this movement, for there are many who are aware of promises held out to soldiers, who have sealed with their blood their part of the contract, and left their families destitute. By the formation of n regular organization for the objects in view, we would af ford to those who promised an oppor tunity, as we know they only need to be reminded of their promises to fulfil their part, as the soldier has done his. The adjourned meeting will be held this evening at 7 o'clock at the City Hall. Our committees on Constitu tion and By-Laws, and on permanent organization will reimrt, when an election of officers for the ensuing twelve months will take place. Feel ing confident that the statement of the objects of the organization will cause all our fellow-soldiers to be pre sent and join us in this undertaking, we close by asking their attendance. By order of the Committee. in connection with the above call, we publish the following stirring lines addressed to the same men who, by flood and field, bore aloft the "Stars and Bars:" Ki IK iKS UK THK " LOST t'.VfSK."

Editor Appeal: I am glad to see the spirit of interest manifested in the prono-i-d enterprise which is, we hope, to evert upon the future of our great and growing city, the nifist lioiieflcial results. Many persons In the city were not aware, until tnis morning, that Col. Avery had on foot such an enterprise as the Shelby County Turnpike Company.'' I hail myself overlooked the fact, but am glad to see that he propose definite action upon the subject. It could not fail to be of great benefit to the city a well as country liordering the iine upon which Tie proposes to run the road; and if it can be built (and 1 think it can) so as to run to -or near by the National Cemetery, it would become a ''drive" of great interest to many who would specially seek it. The north end of our city ought by all means to have such a road, and I 'will for myself take great pleasure, as Col. Trousdale suggests, in contributing to the enterprise. But while I w ill favor this movement, it seems to me that " the Boulevard," lieginning say at the foot ot Shelby street and running for five miles or so along the Missis sippi river, terminating at some point upon its banks, would not in any manner conflict with the other enter prise. Indeed, our city ought by all means to have a north and a south outlet of the kind contemplated, and there are abundant interests along each route to justify the completion of each " drive '' at an early dav. 1 sug gest, then, that Col. Avery continue to press his protect anion? those inter estisl more particularly in that direc tion, and that the friends of "the IJoulevanl" press also theirenterpri.se. There may be, and I hope then are many who, like myself, favor and will contribute to both interests. Your correspondent "Piuetou," in yester day's Appeal, realizes the propriety of "the Boulevard." when he says " there is not a gentleman in the city who keeps his own horse and buggy, not a family w ho keeps a carriage, but would contribute;" and 1 think he might also have added, not a young man in the habit of driving with his sweetheart, uor a mechanic seeking weekly recreation from the toils of labor, but would, to the extent of his ability, contribute to its completion. It is such enterprises as these, Messrs. Editors, that build ud a citv. because tending to make our homes attractive, and in consequence, to invite capital to concent -ate among us. WM. R. MOORE.
