INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL CONVENTION
The Business Men of the United States and
British Provinces in Connell.
Tlxe Lion and. the Eagle Lie
[From our Special Correspondent. ]
DetroiT, July 15.
To the Editor of the Savannah Herald:
An International Commercial Convention
has been in session befe four days this week.
It comprises about five hundred delegates
from forty-three Boards of Trade and Com
mercial Associations, representing as many
cities in the United States and Provinces.
The list of cities included New York, Bos
ton, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati, St.
Louis, Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, Troy, Al
bany, Pittsburg, Portland, Harrisburg, Ban
gor, Rochester, Oswego, San Francisco, Mon
treal, Toronto, Quebec, Hamilton, St. Johns,
Halifax, and many more. There were about
four hundred American and one hundred
British delegates. The number of men from
each side of the line was large. The local
interests represented were diverse; the topics
introduced for discussion were many. The
idea of the Convention originated with the
Detroit Board of Trade, from which invita
tions were issued to all the commercial asso
ciations in the country to send delegates to
Detroit, to a Convention to be held on July
11, for the discussion of Finance, Commerce,
Transit between the East and the West, the
Question of a Reciprocity Treaty with Cana
da, and any other subject tending towards
the development of the resources of the
The Government gave notice last winter
of the abrogation of the Reciprocity Treaty
with the British Provinces, in accordance
with its terms, and although that abrogatiou
has not taken effect yet, it will very sood,
and it has already cast a cloud over the com
mercial prospects of Canada. The annexa
tion feeling—which was scarcely heard of
from the negotiation of the treaty in 1854 up
to last winter—has again appeared; and al
though the government press and orators in
the British Provinces have endeavored to
make light of it and deride it, they have felt
the neeu,of doing something more to satisfy
the requirements of the provincials tor free
trade with the States. It is supposed that the
idea was suggested by prominent Canadians,
but whether it was, or it was the legitimate
fruit of the Detroit Board ofTrade.it was all
the same, Detroit, like Portland,being large
ly interested in the Canada trade.
When the Convention had assembled, and
variety of local interests were represented
by men who “meant business” and who
had come to defend their own interests by
tooth and nail. On the question of transit,
the great and growing West demands every
avenue to the ocean—to the markets
on the Atlantic and in Europe—while Buffa
lo and tile other cities on the Erie Canal be
lieve, or seemed to believe, that that canal
was the “last ditch,” from which they would
never be driven. The Buffalo delegation
made a tenacious fight in favor of enlarg
ing the Erie Canal and against the Niagara
Falls Canal, which is proposed, of capacity
sufficient to enable the largest vessels to sail
from Lake Erie into Lake Ontario, and
thence down the St. Lawrence to the com
mon highway of nations. This is what the
West wants—to land large cargoes of grain
in Europe without breaking bulk before get
ting there, which would cheapen carriage
and thereby increase the demand abroad by
enabling our western farmers to compete
with the farmers of the Baltic region, from
which Europe now draws most of its bread
stuffs. The question of transit was settled
by passing resolutions asking the Govern
ment to build the canal around the Falls of
Niagara, in favor of improving the naviga
tion 6f the Mississ : ppi and Us tributaries,
when the condition of the national finances
will admit of it, and recommending to the
State of New York the enlargement of the
Resolutions were also adopted in favor of
the protection of American industry, and
looking towards the formation of a National
Board of the equalization of
weights and measures upon a decimal stan
But the great question was that of Reci
procity, This brought out a very lively and
interesting debate, in which several speakers
opposed to Reciprocity, did not fail to remind
our brothers from over the border that they
had sympathized with the rebels during the
war, and that they had always had the best
of it under the old treaty. There were no ad
vocates on the American side of the old
treaty, but of a npw treaty, “upon a fair and
just basis” to both parties. Tne provincial
delegates managed their side of the case with
a great deal of tact. From the first they de
clined to vote in the organization of the Con
vention, which was very proper as the sub
jects to be discussed in it embraced several
of our own affairs in which they could have
ne interest. They also declined, to put mem
bers on any committees appointed to lay out
work for the convention, but only asked the
privilege of sending delegates before such
committees to state to them their side of the
case. In this way they appeared before the
committees on Transit and Reciprocity. But
two of their ablest ipen were also heard in
the convention Malcolm Cameron, of Quebec,
on the Transit question, and Hon. Mr. Howe,
of Nova Scotia, long a leader of the Govern
ment there and considered the ablest man in
the British provinces, on the question of Reci
procity. Mr, Howe* spoke nearly two
hours, and to so gopd purpose
that his remarks had great weight with the
Convention and helped, to brißg about an
unanimous vote in favor of the resolve “that
the Government be requested to enter into
negotiations with the British Government
with a view to the formation of a treaty for
reciprocal trade with the British provinces,
reference being had to the present financial
: condition of the country.” This was the
PRICE, 5 CENTS
substance of what was finally done upon this
important question, but the opposition of the
coal and lumber interest of Pennsylvania
and Maine, and the feeling which existed in
the minds of many delegates against Canada,
was very strong for the first part of the dis
cussion, and threatened at one time to defeat
the principal object of the Convention. The
people of Detroit treated their guests to a
splendid steamboat excursion on the river,
Thursday evening—three mammoth steam
boats being lashed together and elegantly
decorated tor the occasion, with a brass band
on each, while the saloons of the inside boat
were dedicated to epigastric exercises and
those of the outside ones to dancing.
Altogether the Convention was an impor
tant affair, and it lacked nothing but repre
sentatives from the once busy marts of the
Sunny South to make it all that we could
wish. * O. K.
FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
Acousta, July 19th.
Cotton. —The decline in the New York
markets has not had any effect on the mar
ket here, as the margin between the two
places was very large, allowing ample sCbpe
tor fluctuations. Tne quotations in this city
to-day is, for middliug to middling fair, 30 to
35 cents; a good demand and, but few sel
lers, except from wagons and other small
lots from the plantations. The general im
pression among large holders is, that prices
will advance here. As transportation be
comes easier and more certain, and having
held through a period of great danger and
uncertainty, they ace not disposed to sell at
Fbeioht— At present, by Express, to New
York is from 3 to 4 cents per lb., which cov
ers all charges of wharfage, drayage, &c. By
flat boats to Savannah, $5 per bale or I cent
per lb. There are several boats building at
our wharves for transporting this staple,
which, with the new boats recently put ou
the river, will afford ample transportation
facilities reducing the rate of freight atfd ap
proximating piicp» here to those of New
York. Those who are able to hold, and de
sire to speculate on the future, will reap all
these advantages by holding on a short time
longer. 1 *
Gold—The brokers were buying to-day
freely at 40 to 45, and gelling at 60 cents pre
mium, with good demand and price firm.
The Constitutionalist gives the following
figures obtained at a late auction in Augusta;
Rio Coffee 50c per lb; combination coffee 16
cts per lb; Stewart’s crushed sugar 30 a 33 1-2
cts per lb; codfish in casks 5c per lb; tallow
candles 19 3-4cperlb; twine 16c per lb;
pickles $4 per keg; buckwheat flour 9c per
lb ; dried apples 9c per lb; raisins 7a $8 per
box; mackerel 4 1-2 a 5c per lb; chewing
tobacco, good grades, 65 a 85c per lb; Span
ish segars 35 » SSO per thousand; codfish
3 50 a $4 per box.
_ Macon. July 18
Cotton. —The sales for the past week have
amounted to between 600 and 700—but most
ly in small lots—at frprn 26 to 30 cents, ac
cording to quality aifc condition of baling.
Holderg are unwilling sellers, even at the
outside figure, and in most cases nothing but
the absolute need of money compelling them
to sacrifice the precious staple. Parties hold
ing cotton complain, ahd very justly, we
think, of the very wide margin existing be
tween the prices offered here and those rul
ing in the market. The operations
here are confined mostly to speculative de
mand. The chief field for speculators, how
ever, is confined to the interior of the coun
try, where greenbacks or any other currency
is at a discount, and where one dollar in
gold will buy from six to eight pounds t>f
the snowy staple. The latest quotations for
cotton, in New York, on the 12th inst., was
52 cents, and the market firm, with an up
ward tendency. This will have the effect of
causing sellers to advance their rates, which
buyers will have to reluctantly yield.—
Columbus, July 14.
About a dozen bales were brought in this
morning, which obtained ready sale at from
25 to 27 cents per pound in currency. Seven
teen cents in gold was refused for another
lot. We learn that there are buyers from
several other States, including some from the
North, and that there is an active inquiry.
We do not think that the price is yet as high
as the article ought to command here, and we
look for an advance.
Collision on the Alabama and Florida
Railroad— Engine Blown Up and Five Per
sons Killed. —We are pained*,to announce
that a fatal mishap occurred odr the Alabama
and Florida Railroad, on Friday evening last,
under the following circumstances : The
passenger train which left this city for Mobile
on Friday, collided with a lumber train com
ing up, at or near Fort Deposit, about twen
ty-five miles below this place. ■ The crash is
reported to have been terrible, resulting in
the explosion of one of the locomotives and
the killing of five persons—one white man
and four negroes—and slightly wounding
several of the passengers. In consequence
of this accident, the mail train from Mobile,
due in this city at eleven o’clock a. m. yes
terday, had not arrived up to the hour c£
going to press last night. Accidents on this*
road are becoming alarmingly treq uent.—
Scarcely a day passes that we do not hear of
some mishap. It is to be hoped that this
important line of travel will speedily be re
paired and put in a safe condition.-—Mont
gomery Mail, 1 6th.
The Epidemic in Egypt.—A let
ter from Alexandria, June 28, furnishes de--
tails regarding the cholera, &c. It says the
existence of the cholera was officially de
clared on the 11th of June, on which day
three deaths occurred. By the gnd of the
first week the deaths increased to about NO
per day. By the end of the second week
they reached about 200, and on the 27th the
number was 250. There was much alarm,
and about 30,000 people quitted the city.
Business was generally suspended; but Mr
Hall, the United States consul general, re
mained at his post, and the business of the
consulate was transacted as usual. No cases
of cholera had occurred among the American
residents, or on American vessels. #
