Dr. It, II, Cain, chairman of tho couiuiltteu on transportation, reported Unit Ihoy had ascertained that no provisions hail as yet been inado by which they could socuro transportation less than Njrcii;ifa for adults. He had hoped to get reduced rales. They sruuld know to-day whether they could get a reduction In tho trans portation or whether they could inuko any other si evlal arrangements. Mr, Holland read a letter from Mr, fioorgo V. T. Cook, which staled that ho wlihed to be conildcroil ono of thn SOU who u 111 subscribe (1 emit to help the emigrants on their Journey. Mr. Holland also road a letter from iio.v. wed. boi'a'.A'u, Inclosing a contribution of Si. The letter tald: "In rcponsa to your rciectod invitation to bo prccnt and speak this evening nt tho meeting tailed to riiltc funds In aid ol tho colored emi grants now In nur city, I beg to statu that, while I hare In no way encouraged the Ill-advised and Ill arranged exmlus of colored liwple from the South, and while I havo Ironi the llrst ojenly ami earn estly stated my objections to It 111 the most publlo wnynt my command, I yet certainly ogreo with you that no time should bo lost and no effort omitted to raise the means Immediately to lielpUiciijo hungry mid penniless emigrants iiow in our city ou their way tosjaio jpoint where homes can be procured for them, und where they can, by their own labor, supply their own necessities. Atthu same time I cannot but repeat the oplulon already often cxprossed, that all oraultcd effort at tho North deitgued to prnuipll and promoto lunner suuniieucs ui tins sort suouiu oo ins conllntii'il. 'llteMi poor people should not bo deluded and nllurcd from thuif' homes, espe cially at this season or the year, by promises, ox prcax'd or Implied, of pecuniary old, I see no wisdom, but much folly: nogiKid, but much evil, In bringing to this city multitudes of these people under the Impression that when they icnch here money will be raised nud furnished them to pay Ihelr trau'Ilug expenses to Iho North or to tho Wot, or elsewhere. Thirc are hundreds and thousands oeryuhero ready to ride on railways and lo visit distant cities if assured In advance that their railroad lares will bo pro- vuieu lor wieui, nut mis is nui tne time inr argu ment.

A grout deal of discussion followed upon the lei tcr, which caused considerable excitement among tho many debaters. Durl ng a heated discussion upon tne general ques tion of ihocauvcof the cmlgrnllnn, lis cflecbi, how to raise money, Ac., Mr, W, It, I.hws wanted to know why thuy did not send their oducatud sons lo tho tiouth to tcoch and Instruct Ihcto people In buslne-s pursuits why they did not organize a society and nitre money ami koep thnm thero wltliout belnir at Ihe expense of the people. Instead of encouraging them to leave their homes and come hero to consume the money of this community. He was sorry fur these people. He hoped that us they had been brought here and advised to come hero, that they might play the part of the Chinese of Uillforula ddie themselves upon tno neck or the com mittee ofthc Emigrant Aid Society, and say to them that " n e will stay here until you put us w here you promised." Mr. Monroe, matron of tho Eicctulvo Mansion, stated that ms. ltATr.i was thoroughly Interested In tlio cause, and had her kitchen In operation making bread, cook ing hams, Ac, for Ihe emigrants. President Wall suited that llio L'uilgiaul Aid Society would commence to-day to send forward tho emigrant! and continue to do to n lougulliu money lasted until till the emigrants had been sent to their destination.
