He spoke very tempt irately. The Meeting at liyde Park. LonOom, December 1. Tho gathering in Hyde park to-day in response to a call for an organized demonstration in favor of the Irish agitators consisted of an immense mo l. A faiv sprinkling of green flags was ob servable, but by far the greater number of persons present seemed to be attracted more by curiosity than sympathy. A goodly num ber of bands ot music enlivened the march from Trafalgar square, and many banners were displayed, but not all of these belonged to the home rule asiociations. The proces sion was swollen by the Tichborne relief as sociation, the democratic workingmen's club, and similar bodies not in any manner con nected with Ireland or Irish agitation. The orators of the Irish association addressed separate giojpa, while the main meeting was in progress in the cart. One of the principal speakers of the Irish sympathy tac tion of the meeting proper was Wm. Archer lidmond, a home-rule member of parliament for WexforrL. "The speakers here wer ur sounded by a dense throng, which cheered so enthusiastically hs to render the speeches ut terly inaudible, except, perhape, to those on the stand. The resolutions protesting against the re cer.t arrestp of Irish agitators and favoring peasant propriety in Ireland were carried by acclamation. The less noted speakeis, par ticularly those at the side meetings, nsed the most, seditious language, and their utter aoces seemed to create much amusement. The authorities had apparently taken no pre cautions whatever tor the maintenance cf order. Ooly thirteen policemen were in the vicinity of the meeting. When darkness came on the throng dispersed and the delega tions marched back to their respective head- ?uarters, with their bands plaiog various risb airs. Everything in a privy vault in Memphis should be pumped out and the vaults deo dorized. Mr. Minor Meriwether believed in abolish ing the privy vaults, and ia having sewerage as soon as possible) but it should be done In a practical manner. He wanted to know how to deal with builJings where no sewer connection exist at pre. . Mr. Johnson explained .that bfivy .VaUl can 09 cleaned out and kept d's!fScte3 With dry earth while !n Zsd, and when sewer con necboa is made, then the vault could be ulled up. He believed in the improved earth closet plan, it being much less offen sive, and cheaper, than the privy vault plan. On motion of General Wright, item No. 5 of the report was adopted.

Item No. 9, as to street paving with gravel concrete, was referred to the Taxing-District government. Item No. 10 was adopted. Item No. 3, not acted ,trHm dt tne former meeting, was tetah up. It was as to the con trol St tne water works by the city and water supply. On motion, of William R. Moore, it was iuopted. General Wright thought a committee ought to be raised to confer with the water works company and see what arrangements as to tariff of charges and the supply of Water could be made. The suggestion was adopted, and Ubairman Hadden appointed the following committee: Messrs. Johnson, Liver more and M'ftae. Item No. 4. as to the condemnation and destruction of unsanitary houses was adopted. The report of the committee as a whale was then adopted unanimously. Mr. John Johnson ottered the following resolution: liesolved, That we recommend for the purpose of constructing a portion of the sew ers and subsoil drainage on the plans sug gested, that a tax of one per cent., or one dollar on the hundred, ot valuation be laid on all the taxable property in the city for the year 1880, and that for the purpose of carry ing out promptly the other sanitary sugges tions made a tax of one-half of one per cent., ot fifty cents on tbe one hundred dol lars, be made on all tbe taxable property in the city lor the year I80U. Mr. Johnson advocated the adoption Ot the resolution. The estimate of one per cent. would realize fiOm one hundred and fifteen thousand to one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars. General Wright did not believe the tax would be sufficient. He favored a tax of one per cent, for each year, or two per cent, alto gether. Mr. Wm. 14. Moore favored the resolution and then asking tne next legislature for an other tax of one and a half per oent. for next Mr, liaaden announced that ne was a high- tax man. He believed in asking the legisla ture for a sufficient tax. He formerly favored a four per cent, tax to carry out the Herman? plan, but as the Waring plan was one-half cheaper, be lavored only a sumcient tax to carry out the plan. He favored a two per cent. tax. payable in two instalments Mr. ProudSt advocated three-eights of one per cent, for general purpose, and one and live-eighths per cent, for sewerage purposes, making two per cent, in all.

The business committee reported that they had waited on the President, and very soon afterward the President's message was re ceived and read. The reading of THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE was concluded at ten minutes after three. Mr. Ferry then rose and paid that sorrowful official duty devolved upon him, of an nouncing to the Senate the death othis late colleague, ZACH. CHANDLER. It was not his present purpose to speak of tne character and services ot one so long and so nearly a member of this body, but et some suitable time he would invite tbe senate to express by resolution and by eulogy its sense of the irreparable loss the nation has sustained in the death of so distinguished citizen.

Item Mo. o ot tue report, as to sewenge system and connections, was taken up aud conwidered. Mr. Jobn Johnson stated the specifications of the sewerage plan proposed for main and side sewers throughout the city, - and ex plained the system as to sizs of pipe. Mr, Johnson explained the difference between the Hermany and Waring plans ot sewerage General Colton Greene, on being called upon, explained the Waring plan of sewer a? as recommended by the committee ot the Ma tion?l board of health. He also explained the Hermany plan ot sewerage tor Alempuia. II j explained the pipe system, llusb. tanks. stand pipes and the St. Louis system of sew erage. Colonel Livermore indorsed the Waring system cf sewerage and drainage, and re commended its adoption as being peculiarly adapted to Memphis. lr. Willett said, as to abolishing the'privy vault system, he thought it ot primary lm portance to do away with the present system ot privy vaults, far above the sewer age system, which of its alt will not keep out yellow-tever from Memphis. Ihe poison is in the privy vaults, and when the warm weather cotnee in tbe summer these poisons breakout. 1 he abolishment ot these privy vaults he regarded as ot the greatest import ance, for there the yellow lever poison lurked until warm weather set in. These vaults should be emptied, disinfected and filled up He believed the system should be absolute, almost tyrannical, becauae be feared if it were not so enforced the plan would not bo carried out at all. He favored obliterating all privy vaults. Mr. Jobn Johnson said the primary thing to be considered was to agree upon the tax necessary to carry out tbe system and have a conference with the city authorities. General Wright moved the adoption of the fifth section of the recommendations of the report as to sewerage. Mr. William K. Moore objected to and protested against the abol s anient of the privy vaults at present and the substitution of earth-closets, because it would be placing on top of the ground what stinks now exist under tbe ground When the sewerage system was carried out then abolish the privy vaults, but not until then. Dr. Willett did not advocate the earth closet plan: he had never seen an earth closet. but he wanted the privy vaults cleaned out and filled up. Mr. J. 11. Godwin wanted to bo placed on record as favoring filling ud privy vaults. He preferred the excreta on tho surface rather than under tbe ground, because if it was piled up on tho streets it could bo removed or washed away. He preferred the abolish' ment of tho privy vaults rather than have a system of sewerage. Mr. John M. Lea said he had the first earth closet brought west of the Allegheny mountains. It was very nice and will suit very cleanly people; had to be very particu lar with it or else it became effjasive. The earth closet is not a thing for general us Total amount ot tax 8343,327 49 Mr. Minor Meriwether oooosed the high tax. We did not need more than a hundred and twenty five thousand dollars for the year 1880. He opposed levying taxes lor compen sation for the proposed destruction of infected bedding and infected houses. Mr. Godwin favored a two per cent, tax, in instalments of one per cent. each. He be lieved they were able to pay that tax, and they would do it. Many business men favored a higher tax; in fact, any tax that keeps off the fever next year. We should do what is manly, and be taxed a sumcient amount to sewer our city and protect ourselves. We cannot afford to run away every year. Let s ask tor a two per cent, tax, payable in two instalments. He believed, it we asked tor it, the legislature will give it to us. Mr. Liowenatein tavored me two per cent. tax, that tax being necessary to carry out the system of sewerage as presented. We can raise hve hundred thousand dollars ror sewer age much better than we can afford to lose iour or hve million dollars annually by run ning away. The merchant can take his goods ; and leave tbe city, but the real-estate owner cannot take his property with him, and that property will become worthless, we must do something to restore public confidence do something to help ourselves, iiy paying two or three per cent, now, we will get it back. It would be good investment; it was not taxation, but an investment. Applause. Mr. Uoyer did not ueueve in levying a tax .. ,.- ,.1 -A 1 upon tne entire population oi tne city anu then expending the money in any special section of the city. He favored carrying out the entire system ot sewerage, both on the east and west sides of the bayou. General Greene advocated the two per cent tax levy in instalments. Mr. Meriwether said we could not sewer more than the west side within tho next six months; then why levy more than a sufficient tax for that purpose. Next year, if the pro posed plan works well, ask for another levy of tax. Sj far, the plan is only an experi ment. Mr. John Johnson said as to the water works company and water supply, that the New York safety and indemnity company owns the larger portion of the bonds of tbe water company, and would more than likely purchase the water-works, and that the com pany would enlarge and spend one hundred thousand dollars on the works. He believed the outlet sewers as proposed are large enough for all purposes. Mr. Gunn, president oi tne company, said thev bad plenty of 8 water for the present and amply sufficient for seven thousand connec tions. Mr. Johnson offered an amendment to his own resolution as follows: Htmiutd. That for the Duroose of bulldlnsr sewers and Kiilwoll drains, and carrying out the other sani tary measures recommended by the commission of sanitarians, that a tax ot two per cent., or two dol lars on tbelone hundred dollars, of valuation be levied on all tne property in tne i axing-uisiric as Aa Editor ftaerifleN tflaUelf to the s?aaltloa or Mayor.
