The Standing Committees of tho Chamber of Commerce having been an noifnced by President Nelson at the meeting yesterday, tho following sug gestions were submitted by Mr. S Gates: M That the committees on railroad Irani Dortation make inauirr. Firat. Whether or not their tariffs of freights on the several roada leading from Memphis, and their several railroad con oectiona to other cities, are rated ns to affect injuriously the trade and general commercial intureBls of Memphis; ar. if so. to aacortain what, if nny. remedy there may be for the mitigation ol the evil. Second. To make inauiry whether or not the tan Us ot freight do not discour age, bv their exorbitancy, the production of n surplus of the commodities ol neri culture; and if so, caunot some remedy be adduced that will enconragn a system of general agricultura and horticulture in our country. Third. To make inquiry whether or not the laws of our State reculute to any extent the system of railroad freighting and if so, are such laws advantageous to tho interests of Memphis, and are sai laws beine recoemzed and enforced. Fourth. Joniuke inquiry whether or not any or ull of our railroads do tfive favor and precedence to tnreign lreigui over those emanating in Memphis; if so, for the remedy. That the Committee on itiver lr:ins Dortation make inauiry whether or no the packets now plying between JUcinpht and St. Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville, Vicksburg, White and Arkansas rivers, do not discriminate in their tariffs of freicht in favor of Su Louis.

That the Committeo npon Commerce investigate and invite communication in reference to'the most advantageous sea board outlet for our city.

That the Committeo on Immigration invite and obtain all such iniormatton as will conduce to a hoalthy rchabitation of our country, to be reported to and disseminated by this Chamber. These snggestions were referred to the several committees. Cap!. F. M. Malian submitted the fol lowing, which was adopted: Whereas. The revenue act tor me State of Tennessee for 1867-8. as con slrued by the Collector on Privileges in the county of Shelby, is unjustly burden some to the merchants, and injurious to the commercial interests of Memphis; therefore, Jiesolved. That the Chamber ot com merce of Memphis will advise the mer. chants to resist, and will resist, by ull lawful means, the pnvment ot the per centaee of tax prescribed on any article ou which tbe tax has once been paid to tbe State, and also the collection of any tax on imports in the hands ot toe im porter, or on thn sales of such imports in the original packages by tne importer. Captain Mahan also offered the fol lowing, which was referred to the Com mittee on Transportation : Whereas. The manner in which some of our local packets have acted in refus ing to receive and carry freight on which there is charged and shipped C. O. D. has had the effect of driving an immense amount of business from our citv: and. Whereas. The Ijouisvilie, Cincinnati and St.. Louis packets plying in the Arkansas. White and bt. Drancia rivers, and Vicksburg trade, all seek for Bnd take C. O- D. orders, thereby depriving the city of that amount of trade; there fore. . . . Resolved. That the merchants ol flicm- nhia. through the Chamber of Commerce of this city, respectfully request tho offi cers and managers of all our local packets to receive and carry all goods otlcred and shipped C. uu. Half-Fare Excursion to Mammoth Cave. As many families have expressed a desire" to visit the famous Mammoth Cave of Kentucky during the summor, tbe Memphis and Louisville railroad is now arranging for an istue of half-fare excursion tickets, which will also be good to the celebrated Buena Vista Springs, near Russelville. The tickets will in cludo the stage ride between Cave City nd the oavo, and will also entitle hold ers to a rcductioo In guide fees and hotel fares, besides providing for a stop-over at Buena Vista Sprines. Such liberal ar rangements cannot fail to come within the reach of people of tbe most moderate means, who are desirous of visiting these wonders of nature. Wa understand that one party, of twenty, has already been formed, to start from here on the 13th of this month.' There is a fine hotel and pavilion at the cave, excellent music and everything conducive to health and plea sure. The same Is also true with regard to Buena Vista Sprines.

The additional tax which has been im posed by the State authorities on goods upon which tax has been previously paid to the State, and tbe tax Imposed also on sales of importations where the packages are not broken before sale, has been the cause of much just com plaint among the merchants of this oily. The following synopsis of an opinion, submitted to the County Commissioners lk!a m.nina V, w fnnnl. A Hn.n.v W ivrA , , , . ,1 ward, in pursuance of. resolution of Commissioner White, adopted on Moo day, will therefore be read with general interest. Mr. Woodward takes the ground: ' First. That the act of 18G3 only amended tbe act of 18G5, so far as to charge the rate of taxation on merchan dise- Second. That the act of 1868 does not abrogate the saving clause in the act of 18C5, which prorides that when the tax has been paid to the State no additional tux can be imposed, Third. That the act of 18G8 and the act of 18C5 can well subsist together. This being true, it has been repeatedly declared that unless the repugnancy be tween tbe two statutes is irreconcilable, the courts are bound to uphold the prior la As to tax on imports, he takes the ground Fir.t. That it is immaterial whether tbe tax be laid on the goods imported or on the person of the importer, and for the obvious reason that it is a restriction on the right of commeroe ; the regulation of which, by virtue of the Constitution of the United States, is exclusively vested in Congress. Second. That while tbe power of taxa tio'n is indispensible to the very existence of the State government, still the exer cise of tbe power by a Slate, in the par ticular of imposing a tax on imports, is an attempt to regulate commerce, and is the exercise of the very power granted to Congress. Thiid. As to the point of time when the right of a State to tax commences, he is of the opinion that while the goods are in the hands of the importer for - sale in the form and shape in which they were in' troduced and which they were intended to be Bold, they may be regarded as merely n transitu, and not subject to the tax, They are subject only when the importer has so acted upon the thing imported that it has become incorporated and mixed np with the mass of tbe property in the country. Any other construction would give to a State the exercise of the power of regulating commerce nnder the cord of a Stato tax. Tn Borpitt Beaumont-Walprok Im- b Ron lio. The mutiny in the Radical ranks has developed no new phase within the past twenty-four hours. Judgo Wal- dron, on taking the bench this morning, postponed the hearing of the several cases of tbe State vs. Burditt and Beaumont, indicted for sundry violations of tbe law, to Saturday morning next. The Judge will himself appear before Chancellor Smith, in chambers to-morrow morning, and answer the Burditt petition for an in' unction, in which the allegation is made that he was riot a citizen of Tennessee when appointed to tbe Municipal Court bench. In addition to this charge, the bill as filed by Burditt also sots forth that Waldron, "under color of the office, so as aforesaid, usurped and unlawfully held by him, has enabled notorious crim inals to escape from justice." Then fol' lows a statement of several cases where "straw bail" was accepted from known criminals, after which the bill further proceeds : " And the said Geo. W. Wal dron, by collusion with persons ia dieted for misdemeanors in said Mu nicipal Court of Memphis, has ena bled them to elude prosecution there for, and to escape with merely nominal fiaes. Among others, one hundred in- dictmeufs having been returnod into Court by the Grand Jury against one T. . Dale, for keeping a gaming house, the said T. J. Dale came into Court and plead guilty to fifteen of said indictments ; hereupon he was fined by the Court five dollars in the first of said cases, and one dollar in each of the others (nineteen dollars in all), besides the costs therein; and thereupon, bv consent of the Court, nWi! nroitoui was entered in the other ghty five cases, and the costs therein , a were taxed against the oounty of Shelby. Further on the charge is made that, "Said G. W. Waldron has directed and required (he clerk of said Municipal Court to oertify that certain parlies have served as jurors n said Court a greater number of days than they had actually served, thereby I enabling tbem to collect a greater amount of jury fees from the county han they were by law entitled to. In conclusion, it is alleged that " said Geo. W. Waldron is using tbe omce held by im to cratify bis personal malice I . . - I t the Metropolitan Police Com- missioners." The Chancellor will hear an answer only to that portion of the bill charging Waldron with not being a liin. v laisa linen, very low, at 233 low. at !3 Mam street I10O-TJ Rice k Ekoeu LoxoweRTn's Native Wiies Goi.pei Wnnmiro, SriiEUxo Catawia, Still Catawsa, Etc The wines from the Loneworth vineyard and winehoaae have attained a world-wide celebrity for their excellence, and in pnrityfroity flavor and bouquet, they are surpassed hy eons n the market, either native or foreign.

O. P. Fopte, Chairman Com. on Ratification. Pat. Mui.vtwit.I., Secretary. Honors Worthily Bestowed. We see from tho papers that Union Univer sity, of this State, has conferred the title L.L. P. on Rev. J. R. Graves, editor of the Baptist, in this city. Tbe samo in stitution conferred the degree of D.D. on ihe same gentleman, yesrs ago, which, howCTeli he decliucd on the ground that luch a title is inconsistent with tbe sim plicity of the Christian religion and the purity of the ministry. But the same objections cannot apply to the L.L P., as that is more distinctly a literary de gree. We congratulate our neighbor and the friends of learning upon this public and well deserved recognition of genius and literary distinction. Pr. Graves is a man of genuine and distinguished ability. We notice also that Wake Forest Col lege, of North Carotins, has recently conferred the title of P. P. on Rev. T. B, Kingsbury, of this city. This gentleman is but recently from North Carolina, but he comes among ns with the full indorse ment of the Southern Baptist Conven tion, by which be has been appointed Corresponding Secretary of the Sabbath School Board, now located in tbis cily, He is justly esteemed a maa of ability and an elegant Christian gentleman. We learn further that Baylor Univer sity, Texas, has conferred the degree of P.P. on Rev. Champ C. Conner, of Rip ley, Tennessee. Mr. C. has long been representative man in West Tennessee, and in every way, as a gentleman, Christian, an orator and a sonnd theo logian, he is altogether worth, of any honor which his friends may be disposed to confer on him. Tbe Oxford University also conferred the degree of Poelor of Divinity on Rev, T. D. WitherBpoon, of this city, during its late commencement exercises. No man is more worthy, or will wear bis new honor more meekly. " Dr. W. daily winning golden opinions and en1 dearing himself to the people of our city by deeds of faithfulness, piely and char ity.

It is intimated that m the event the Commissioners assume to act in the appointment of Wickersham's successor, Merriman alone will contend that, ac cording to the constitutional provisions confering the power of appointment upon the county justices, the Commissioners cannot act in the premises. In the event the Commissioners assume to appoint, Powers is still confident of success, though Cash and Warner aie still in tbe ring.
