Mr, John Sherman wm, on motion of Mr, Fitch, elected permanent secretary. Mr. Fitch, from the sub-committee, reported In favor of drculatluu subacrlDtlon sheets. each member to lake one and obtain a Hat of uMciiptluna. A number of these ahccla had been prepared aud wiro submitted for dis tribution. The committee also recommended the addition of the following names to the finance committee i Hon. J. 1) Defrces, John F. Cake. Gen. Dunn, J. T, Wormier, L. P. Williams, Win. E. Edmonston, W. J. Mc Donald, Major A. C. Richards, Col. Wm. G. Moure, John II. Cooke, B. F. Fuller and N. U. tyorton. In regard to a trian of collectlne- the commit tee after careful Investigation came to the conclusion that tuey bad better not divide the lity Into districts, but that each member Ihould take his subscription lint, go among nis friends and collect all he could. Mr. Lausburgh referred to his experience In collecting money In this way, and thought the purpose wouiu ue better seneu iy giving each a waru ana let nun canvana h tnorougbiy. The Chair admitted that It seemed to hlui under the plan the Aenue between First and fifteenth streets would be canvassed several times, and tnerchauta would call on friebds, not knowing that a dozen other friends had already called on the same object. As a con sequence, tho other portlors of the city would be neglected. fir. Droop wis of the opinion that letter re ts would be obtained uuder Mr. Lantburgh's Jlau.and bowas tratilncd by Mr, Armes and Ir.Strahburgcr. On motion of Mr Armes, the names rccom xneuded were added to the committee, Mr. Droop said this woik should net be eoufined to certain districts Every house should be visited, lie felt certain they would get something at wtch one, if only a quarter. Only a few would be reached by the proposed Klan, whereas every house should have a call poult. Mr, Armes spoke of the necessity of thtlr having a proper foundation or their enter prise. If tt was intended as a permanent thtur. lie thought the city should be so minutely districted that not a family should bo over looked, and no member of the committee tverburdened with the task of solkiLiufsub. torlptlona. Ue referred to the annoyances of uopucaung me work, ana maintained Uiat Ue collections could be carefully, perfectly and economically made by assigning certain work to each one. It was possible, In this way, to get monthly, and even yearly, sub BCTintlona. and. aa he understood thla -ara permanent enterprise, this would prove of arras aa,vauu.ge. ae auo suggested, n prac ticable, that the members look no theobieeta deserving of charity In their rounds for mousy. ids ucparuncma, npeciauy. snouia do can vaued. Mr. Smith, of the committee, explained that they had been influenced In making the recom mendation by tho representation of the gen eral maltster that the monev was needed lm. mediately, and with that Idea It was found Impracticable to district the city without losing valuable time. A vote was then taken on the recommenda tion and It was lost. It was reconsidered, Uow ever,end Mr. Droop stated that If it was neces sary to collect the money to Insure the success of the Exchange In three days, as had been itated, It was better fur each member to take a subscription sheet and do the beet they could. They could decide at a future meeting the best pi tn to make a general canvass. This suggestion mst with the approval of ill, and Mr. Ditch suggested that a special sommlttee be appointed to receive the returns If the members at the close of tho three days. Mr, Davis said It was certainly necessary for them to start at once, and they could not do it If they attempted to prepare some elaborate plau of operation. Lei every one collect aa much money aa he can at once, and they could afterwards decide upon a more elaborate and permanent plan, Mr. Goldstein moved the appointment of a committee to canvass the Government depart ments, but Mr. Fitch explained that all the grpartnients but one were represented on, the committee, and they could see that each de partment was thoroughly canvassed. Mr. Fitch made a motion, which was adopted, that an executive committee of seven be ap pointed, to constat of the chairman, the secre tary and the treasurer, and four other mem bers. Messrs. Fitch. Luber, Smith, and Stlno mctx were appointed in addition to the ofllcers. Mr, Norfle t suggested as a metns of raising money that the committee consider the feasi bility of giving a concert and of having a mechanical exhibition in this city durlug the winter, front whtchuutte a good sum of money might be realized. Congress would probably f;lve the land aud the material for the build ng, and this would give employment to the poor. He referred to the scarcity of money and the Ml luck that would probably meet the members in their rounds, and said that busi ness men were begging for business almost as much as the uoor were beeziue for bread. Mr, Davis considered the proposition of having an agricultural fair an excellent one, and it could be gotten up herewith considerable advantage lie hoped tho subject would take root, aud that the committee would not dis band without taking action on that or some kindred proposition. L tttrs were receive 1 from Mssm J. D Bliukhom, E. G, Davis, J. Markiiier, C. C. Willurd, C. G. Ball and D L. Blackford, re gretting their luabillty to serve on the com mitter, but expressing their sympathy aud de sire to assist in any movement that was con templated to bring about the common object Mr. Solomon", of tho board of managers, spoke of their deslro to act iu harmony with the finance committee. From the committee on procuring a suitable room, he icnortcd that the committee were In fator of rcullug the Itwer floor of the Seat on building, on Louisiana avenue, hkh tbej ' on Id get for 430 a mouth. The managers desired to make baits slowly, andprotldc an Institution which would be beneficial to tke community. Dr Cox, from Ue cjuiniittea to select a ealtabloMipqriattudent to lake charge of tho Excitant ttbtu established, sunkc of the htsh character of th man reuiilrcd, aud asked for upgesuou sin ruiiioi a selection. Mr, Lsniburiu lonulred If the superintend eut was to be a salaried officer, aud Dr. Cox TCDlledtliat the Question had not ret been dr. termlued, tut in lew of his multifarious duties be would certainly require compensa tion. Gen. MIU itatod in reference to the distri bution of the money that it would be done In a manner satisfactory to eery one present.

Tkylor gradually progressed to the leadership of the apobtles. lie Is a determined fanatic, fully in accord with the splrltof the hierarchy. Daring tho war with the South he wm noted for hisdUloyal utterances aud defiance of Fed-O-ul authority. He Is tall and burly In appearance and bust ling in his movements, and resides In this city, where for years ho has been an earnest ex pouuder of the Mormon faith, and h a large family engaged In secular occupations. In fact, all the leaders of the Church here are en grossed In bust now. Taylor has mining inter ests of considerable value. The selection seems to give geueral satisfaction to the saints, and will put an end to the intrigues that had been set on foot since the death of Urlgham Young.
