'I HAaajt i BcitDina j To-Kioht --JlJ meeting
Will be held by the working men of Memphis,
to-night, at Exchange Building, as advertised
in our columns. It is believed to be high time
that ti& laborer and the mechanic come forth
' - and speak for that Union whose chief pros jer
ity is due to the labor of his branny arm, the
sweat of his manly brow, the loss of which,
even for a time, was to him the loss of liberty
and dignity. 1 he meeting should be a full
one. It should be a clean protest against the
unholy rebellion which sustained itself by
dragging the laborer like a hound from hia
home, to work per force and without remuner
ation, a protest against the rebellion w hich sub
jected them to be dragged to encampments
from the side of their dependent, wives and
families, which looked yUpon.aU labor as dis
graceful, and the white laborer as lest than a
negro, a protest against the rebellion which
shot those who resisted the indignities it heaped
upon them, whose leaders, applied to for re
dress, remarked, It is wily an Irishman!"
Come out, working men, mechanic and labor
er; enter your protest against tyranny, mani
fest your love and gratitw'e lor the flag that
has ever protected you, and the Union wbich
has never oppressed yoii. Let those talk "nig
ger" who will, your interest ana dignity are
with the old United States, within whose pro
tection alone the mechanic and the laborer
have ever stood the proud and just equals in
social and political rights to every other class
. of the community. t-
Come to the meeting'nftd speak, Old Pincn,

thought of the ingratitude of those who, shar

- and looked in vain, for the gift that Secession
had left to Memphis. In lieu of riches, pov
erty; in lieu "of employment, a conscription
aft; in lieu of protection, spoliation ; in lieu
of the chorus of anvils, the wail of want, the
low muttered curses of oppressed industry,
The idle foundry and the stilled' machinery
seemed to, enter a mute protest against the
suicidal wickedness of rebellion ; and the rais
ing of the flag seemed as the" forming of the
rainbow, which brings hope; ani,Jike the

In another place we publish a proclamation
received from the Governor of Ohio, calling
for more volunteers to rally to the defense of
our old nag. lhat bhel by county will be
among the foremost in responding to this call
we siceerely nope. The traitors in the bouth
must be conquered by the sword and bullet
before the Union which was established by the
blood of our fathers can be restored. The gal
lant McCiellan needs more men to oppose and
conquer the immense army of determined reb
els between nim and their stronghold ana cap
ita!. This is, perhaps, the la&t chance men
will have to volunteer; for if the several States
do not furnish their quotas, drafting must in
evitably follow. ' Where men are drafted, of
course tbey are entitled to no bounty.
Under the new call of .President Lincoln lor
three hundred thousand additional troops, it
will be observed that the inducements offered
are much greater than heretofore. Of the one
hundred dollars bounty, twenty-five dollars in
cash will be advanced recruits on their being
organized into regiments, thus enabling those
wishing to serve their country in so glorious a
cause to partially provide for their families
until they can draw thuir pay of thirteen dol
lars per month. Of the entire number, some
forty thousand men will be required from Ohio.
Let the patriotic men of the Buckeye State re
spond promptly to the call, and by so doing
aid the gallant ones already in the field to
bring this ungodly rebellion to a speedy ter
mination. . v. -;-' . -

It is further ordered, That all persons ever

receiving any favor, - protection, privilege,
passport, or to have money paid them, property I
or other valuable thing whatever delivered to
them, or any benefit ot the power of the United
States extended to them, except protection from
personal violence, must take and subscribe the
oath above specified before their request can
be heard or any act done in their favor by any

be deemed to have been citizens ot the t nited
States who shall have been resident therein for

foreign born, shall not have claimed and re
ceived a protection of their government, duly
signed and registered by the proper omcet
more than sixty days previous to the publica

" It having come to the knowledge of th
commanding general that many persons reat

been aiding rebellion, by furnishing arms and

abetting by other ways, the so called Uoniea-
erate States, in violation of the laws of neu
trality imposed upon theni by their sovereigns
as well as the laws of the ''nited States, and
that a lees number are still so engaged, it is.
therefore, ordered that all foreigners, claiming
any of the privileges of an American citizen,
or protection or favor from the government of
the United States (except protection from
personal violence,) shall previously take and
subscribe to an oath in the lorm loiiuwjng

The New Orleans papers are particular :
about being conciliated. They get on with.
Butler, but, perhaps, being afraid of his assas
sination, they want first to get rid of Gen.,
Phelps. We copy from the Aatumat Advocate ;
"The friends of the ULion residing in Lou

Tbey consider turn an enemy to tbe Constitu
tion of the United States, and therefore it is
impossible for him to harmonize with our citi
zens, who are determined to maintain their
rights as defined in that sacred charter ; while
Major General Butler and Gen. Shepley are
taking great pains to protect us in our rights,
as an evidedce of which we have Gen. BuUer'a
order that none save those employed should
be received or be allowed to remain within
tbe lines of the army, and Gen. Shepley's order
warning the marines of the consequences
which would attend their aiding the escape of
slaves. " h

which the President should not tolerate, if he

This palladium of our liberties must and

abuses, violations and frauds to which, for
many years, it has been subject. ' '
So great has been tbis abuse that it has. in
duced many good citizens to despair of this
republic, and be willing to return again to a
monarchy, the worst of all remedies. Mili
tary rale is a good substitute for a monarchy.
This, of necessity, must be temporary, and
before it is withdrawn we nope the ballot box
will be open to our fellow citizens, and that
they will profit by so good an opportunity to

Editor- Union- Appeal: la- order to. fully
comprehend the amount of merit or demerit
that should attach to any action, it is necessary
to understand the motive and object of the
actor; it not unfrequently happens that what
in itself would be a good action is performed
out ot personal pique or for selfish ends.
I am led to this reflection by the conduct of
a late member of the present Board of Alder
men. : ' ' . ':- -j L-;
At the lai meeting but one of the Board, a
motion was . adopted to appoint a committee
of three to investigate the: qualifications and
eligibility of the members of ' the present
Board. This was daerned ntceasary,' as it was
rumored that some oi lit aiumWi ere ineli
gible. i4- ',. iv. . , - ; .'' . ..
Mr. Brooks wis summoned to appear-before
said committer. Previous to. the meeting of
the committee he-stated faU own cuse to some
of the member of it, f.om which it appeared
that he had lived in the Third ward, but that
within six month paet' he had rented and
occupied a houm in the Seventh ward, but
still expecting at uu;e i'utute time to return to
the Third wrd which expectation has been
fulfilled ; that lor borne time he had been, but
of town, filling some official capacity under
CoL W. K. Hunt, Chief of the Ordnance for
the Southern Confederacy, and this within
six months next preceding the election.
Some members of the committee told him
that according , to his own statement he was
certainly ineligible. r, He then requested the
committee not to rep- rt upon hia case at all,
and he would resign at the next meeting of
the Board. I p to this time nothing was
heard of tbe ill'-gtlity of the city govern
ment.' , ' " ; '' !: ' - -':"
The committee at the. last meeting reported
thst the only case brought' before them was
eligible, and supposed that the other members,
no charge being against them, were all right.
.This report was made , with the understand
ing that so soon as Mr. Brooks handed in his
report from Police committee, he would re
sign; so that th Committee of Investigation
did not look upon him as being a member of
the Board. Had it not been for this the com
mittee would have been under the necessity of
reporting unfavorably upon hia claim to a
seat in the -Board,' and would have recom
mended that his seat be declared vacant.
The Committee treated Mr. Brooks with a
good deal of courtesy . and. forbearance, for
which they conceive be has not made a very
suitable retur v. 1
' Now, if tbe Board was illegal, why did Mr.
Brooks take a seat in it, endorse its action by
his vote and take a part in the election of offi
cers? It appears the scales fell off his eyes
very suddenly. No ' doubt the anticipated
action of the investigating committee tended
to give him more light. 1
When asked after the reading of his protest
why he had not published the illegality sooner,
he said that , in examining the City Charter
concerning his necessary qualifications, he had
discovered that the Board of Mayor and
Aldermen was illegal. So the inelegibifity of
the one was the cause of the illegality of the
other. r 1 ..":
Whilst I do not question the purity of any
man's motives nor the sincerity of bis words,'
I do think that the Board of Mayor and Alder
men would have been perfectly legal and that
Mr. Brooks would have been a burning and
shining light in said Board had it not been for
the committee of investigation. ,; "

why gold should j9 exported from the -uon
Mr. Chase baa. already in Jo iiovd one of the
anticipations of ur aruclc last week. It had
been contended that the issue of incoavertablo
notes was safe in America, because the quan
tity was limited because it was v restricted to
$150,000,000 or 31,000,000. ;. We then feared
the limit woult'l have be extended, and now
Mri Cnase askf i for another 31,000,000. The
enect oi mis apppuc&uon to Congress Lax been
to raise the premium on gold, which h cvrt-tn-
ly now more than five per cjni.t is even
said to have been seven per ceeu, though we
cannot vouch for .the accuracy of the latter
quotation. When a powerful disturbing cause)
such as the apprehended issue of many new
notes, is introduce! into a delicate market as
we know tbe exchange market, to.be its ef
fects are often , irregular JTor the moment,
there is an indisposition to do business in arti
cles likely to be effected by the new circum
stance. We are not concerned to settle what
ia the precise premium on gold at New Tork
at this moment. , Our aim is to show that the
Inference ordinarily deduced from it is un
founded. ItU faucied, that the higher the
premium on gold, the more likely la gold to
come here. In truth, however, the reverse
would be more accurate the lower the priem
ium on gold at New York, the more likely it
is to be exported from New York to England.
The lest cf exchange operations U a simple
test, though the dotails of the necessary calcu
lations are often rather aiffijuit. The test is a
plain matter of business ;' how ia it possible
K make a remittance from the country where
we have our maney to the country where we
wish to have it? If you have a credit. Of
$100,000 at New York aud wish to remit it to
England, you must choose how you will bring
it, and the Exchange' shows you how to
choose. ..;;.,", : ..V ''!',,.
"Ordinarily a man with one hundred thou
srnd dollars to remit from New York would
choose what is to him the cheaper medium.
Coin or bullion is an inconvenient anil expen
sive mode of taking or sending money ; i-, is
bulky; it requires the payment of freight and
the paymentof insurance. A bill f exchauge
payable in London requires no such expense,
and is subject to no similar inconvenience. It
may be sent by the mail ; its cuet is the post
age, and it needs ro insurance. Commonly,
therefore, the remitter to London asks for a
bill oh London. The limit to his doing so is
the price. If bills on London should be very
dear if for sending every 100 to London be
should be asked to pay a very large per cent
age he would pause. , He would say : " I am
Bending this piece of paper to London instead
of sending gold, because the paper ia cheaper ;
but is it cheaper? This sort of paper is be
coming so dear that I had belter calculate
whether the premium I am asked to pay on the
bill is not larger than the freight and insurance
I have of necessity to pay on the gold."
. "If the premium on billj is sufficiently high.
he will decide to send gold. , But then, (and
this is the critical consideration at the present
moment) suppose there is a premium on gold
as well as bills. His dollars are in notes ; sup
pose, what' would ordinarily happen, that be
has a credit at a bank ; all he will extract from
the bank is paper. With this paper he must
purchase gold, and if the premium on gold be
as much as the premium on bills, ho will send
bills and not gold. . He will not choose the
more cumbrous remitting medium metal
unless he is compelled so to do by the greater
costliaess of. the less cumbrous medium,

A Chapter em Lallti' Hair.
A lady I Aie there two words in the dic
tionaries of all nations between Greenwich
and South Australia that con in re up in the
mind " and heart of one who hears, read,
speaks, or sees them, thoughts and feelings of
pure gentleness and sweeter emotion. ' A my
thological angel is a very worthy individual,
there is no doubt, but her merits are so utterly
unconnected with all flesh and blood, and
therefore she is .so without the range of the
most potent of oer sympathies, that with all
respect fcr her personal facinations and, per
haps her moral principles,-she is bo more to be
compared, in our opinion, to a lady, than the

ble to think of a lady without thinking ef her
eyes those brilliant temples of her soul ; of
her lips those perfumed flowers where her
sweet feelings, like bees in a honied lily's
heart, kveto linger; but who but the lover or
the poet ' thinks of her hair of her golden
locKiy waving like tolas of substantial Bun-
shine ; or of her raven tresses, making more
white the immaculate purity of her softly
crimsoned skin, er shading the light of .her
eyes as the myrtle shadeth tne tender violet

impressive as the eye and the mouth are, how
much is the expression of each of them effect
ed or arltered by the manner in which the
hair ia dressed ; so that, after all, every feature
in the face is a subsidiary sovereign to tbe cri
natory influencer of the whole faeial aspect.
.Now, aa far as young ladies are concerned, (for
there is a satire about discussing the question
as bow an old lady should dress her hair.
which w are gallant enough not even to al
lude to.) we are bold enough to declare it to
be our opinion that the mode of wearing hair
most suited to by far the greater number of
faces, is that which allows a profusion of long
and ample ringlets to fall over the shoulders,
and to attire them, as it were, entirely behind, 1
with lust a ringlet or two curving down in
front of each shoulder, as Miss Fanny Wynd-
fa&m. many of our readers will remember,
dressed her hair in the part she so exquisitely
played in Jjord Uurghesh s lately produced
opera, II Tornto. The fashion commonly de

especial protest against, firmly believing, as
we do, that the lace would look scarcely pleas

four in number, on each side of tbe. head, and
