Memphis, May 23.?Under a banner with tbe inscription "Sound Curreucy aud Belter Banking Facilities" be? tween eovun and eight hundred rep? resentative men of tbe Southern Status assembled at the auditorium this alter uuon to express their opposition to the doctrine of the free und unlimited ooinage of silver and to declare iu favor of tbe ooutinuauco of present mouetary conditions. It was essentially a gathering of "solid men," bankers and merchants, farmers aud manufacturer*, store keep? ers and members of professional allied with industrial mterests. It was espu eially commented upon that the politi? cians were conspicuous by their ab aeuoe. The delegates began to assemble at tbe auditorium shortly after 1 o'clock. There was few men of national reputu tion in the columns that marched up tbu aisles with military tread,but those that were reooguized cumo iu for a hearty greetiug. (ieuerul ThomtiB C. Catcbings, of Mississippi, who has parted with his tlowmg beard since the adjuurumeut of Cougress, was uureeognized at lirat, but wheu tbe assemblage kuew him it made the rulters ring. Other who came iu for a true Soutueru groetmg as they appeared at the bead of their State delegations wcro Congressmen Kyle, of Mississippi; Clarke, of ( Ala bamu; Patterson, of Tennessee; Lieut. Oov. Alverd, of Kentucky, aud Lieut. Oov. Stauuard, of Mississippi. Wheu Chairman Crawford, of the local committee of lifteeu, assumed the gavel at 2 o'clock, there were six huu I dred aud twenty delegates ou tbe Hour, and titteeu hundred spectators of botli sexes iu tbe galleries. The few words of welcome iu behalf of the BlnfY City wero prettily and quiukly spoken aud permaucut organization wus thou in order. The Alabama Congressman, Mr. Clarke, was recogni/.ed for the purpose of presenting the name of tbo little giaut from Mississippi as permanent otiairmaii, but be avuiled himself of a call to the platform to luud oil tbe ora torioal fireworks with a speech tiiat aroused all tbo energetio enthusiasm of his audience, "We are not a forlorn band making a dosperute aud hopeless fight," said Mr, Clarke, "but we are to give form and organization and voice to u deep rooted aud widely spread public opiu ion, ttiat 18 growing in voluuie aud whioh >h destined to mould the ?uauciul policy of this country. "We have notbiDg to fear in the fight that has been forced npou us. The conservatism of the American people will not allow its monetary systems to be dragged down to tbe debu.-ed lovel of Mexico and China, The rour of the free silverites is as the roar of a tire. .Upou chatl that soon burns itself out aud leaves but ashes aud smoke, It is but the echo of the liut inoneyites. .Standing here as a Southern muu, 1 say that I have lirm conlideiioa iu the Hound sense and mtegrity of that ssu tion of the country iu tbu cotton mou and the industry thut has made Mem phis one of the mont importuut cottou markets in the world.

I Why ? Because tbe A mericau people know that their President is honest (cheers); that the possesses in en to 1 and moral oouruge (more cheers); that ho is not only a man, but a whole mau; that he has a wisdom that no obloquy can darken." Shouts and stamping followed tbo speakers retirement from the platform. There was moro of tbo same kind wheu the motiou was pot aud Oeu. Catchmgs doslared selected as permuuont ohair man. On being esoorted to the chair ho gracefully acknowledged the honor and contained: "No convention has ever assembled iu this regiou for a higher or nobler purpose.

"Upenking fur myself bolore this grcut audience, 1 say 1 stand for (irover Clevolaud and Johu U. Car? lisle, (prolonged applause). Why should these men dosire to engraft upon the people a policy which is bur? densome to them, when this people have given to theoi with n free hnud every honor that has been conferred upon them."

Jnst as the com? mittee had been completed tho lull form of Secretary Carlisle emerged from the 6toge. In an instant delegates and spectators, women aud men, were on their feet and ? mighty shout went up. It was succeeded by a yell yet deor to Southern hearts, and then again with n volley of cheers, with waviu*: of hats nnd canes und other accompani? ments. The ovation continued for 60voral moment? and was renewed when the Secretary of the Treasury was formally presented. Silence having beeu with difliculty restored, Mr. Carliilo began his spued), tho delivery of which occu? pied precisely one and a half hours. He spoke with unwonted energy and made few references to his notes. Ho wan listened to with profound atten? tion, the audieuce being apparently auxious to grasp and follow the trend of h^OtMagumant ami the mass of figures with wnTeii it vras supported and there were fow interruptions of approval until toward the close. Then wheu, with quivering forefin? ger, he declared that the hard earned eavui?K of the poor ought not to be saoriticed to the avarice of thu wealthy nunc owners or the ambition of aspir? ing politicians, his hearers (airly wont wild, aud when in his peroration he urged that there could be no prosperity for one section at tho expense of the other, but that all must attond or fall together, it looked for a moment ao though the audieuoe would storm the platform. When tho speaker conoiuded ho was givun a tinal ovation and a recess until S o'clock was at once taken. The convention adjourned eine die tonight. PRESBYTERIANS AT DALLAS.
