No Polloe on the Ground, and all Peaceable and Orderly. i cn.nuttee appointed by the unemployed working ami hk-t wevk to represent their nece-udtioe to the Com mon Council, and to urge on that body tbe propriety of af fording an much assistance under the circumstances as no prpeecution of tho various public works tbe city would enable them to do, arranged Is have a public meeting at Tompkins square at XI o'clock yesterday morning. Accordingly the unem ployed poor assembled there at the hour designated , in ?ooskterable numbers. The condition of that One square to of itself a standing reproach to tne city. Three of its sides are entirely destitute of fence or paling; there is not ? bench or scrap of grass within the area; and the basm that was perpared for a fountain and jet d'oau some few years since at immenvo expense Is nothing but a recepta cle of mud and a place for pigs to wallow in. It would require an expenditure of fifteen or twenty thousand dol lars to put the square Into anything like a roapoctablo looking condition; and In that way alone employment Blight be given to many tradesmen and laborers for tbo asxt few months to come. Well, In Tompkins square, such as it is, there were col lected, between ten and eleven o'clock yesterday morn tag. some six or eight hundred men and boys. These vers for the most part gathered silo groups in and around Sto basin m the centre of tbe square, talking about tho times , about the action of tho Common Council Monday even tog sad about their chances of getting work. They seem ed generally to labor under the impression that they ooukt demand work ad part of their legal and constitu tional rights, and that it would be unlawful and unconsti toMocal not to provide it for them. With these curious ideas they have been led, many of them by their recol lection of the public works xystem provided in Ireland in 1M6-7 , and many because demagogues have been s preaching to them. It never kwdmI to occur to the m ttut tbe city j^vernm.-nt could, at best. provide work ssihr for mssonn, bricklayers, hod carrier* nnd laborers, sad that only In a very limited extent, and that if they roa Id twist in such work being provided for them a-i their right, tailors and shoemakers, and segar manufactu re!*, and hat makers, and ship carpenters, and men ?( every ether trade, would have tho warn* right to re qatr* work to he pro vided for them In their different lines ef boMtD'HH Tbe shirt sewers, bookfokiers, and tbe many thousands of poor women and girls who are now unem ployed would also have the same rtfht to call upon the eHy goverment for employment. And the fart is, that of the laboring men of the city (thee* who live by their day tobor, earning a dollar or nine shillings a day ) there arn leas anemployed in proportion to tbetr numbert than there are of the artisan clasrea. But yet they talked and ?rgeed with one another on the false assumption that the city was bound to furouh them with employment at remit aeralhrc wages. The fact of tbe Onmmon having at length dono what it was required to do a month ago ? Bade an appropriation of 9260.000 to enable tbe Central hik Commissioner*- to continue employment on that ;? ? was hailed as a result of tke attitude assumed by unemployed poor, and as something of an exceptional for which they might thank themselves. Ota the rim of the basin facing t*t Bridget's church, on ?vsnue B, some of the leaders ef the movement were grouped together, and hers, of course, the larger propor tioa of the crowd was gathered. A chair wi? procured 1Mb one of th? I noses on th? avenue, and placed h ire fur lbs accommodation of speakers. There was hut one ban asr dl?, Uyed, and thai bore the harmless motto of ? 1 WORKWOMEN WILL MEET THIS EVENING. I . Tho device was an arm wielding a hammer. Tbe meeting was called to order here by one of the com aiitte* , at a quarter before eleven o'clock. This gentle a?an said be wonld commence the proceedings by inform 2 them tliatthe (Vmmnn Council of the city liad appro led 1s t night the sum of ?

H. would now read a resolution which had beea prepared fey tbe Wnrkmgrnen's Committee. The resolution was rsad as follow* ? Whereas, the Common Council of tbe city of New York, on the memorial of the unemployed workingraen. has ap propria tod the sum of *260.000 to the Central I'ark Own mission*? for the purpose of emptying tho workmgmen s t tbe city . therefore l>e it Resolved, That tbe thanks of tbe committee are eminent to doe to th?- Mayor and Cnmmon Council fur the laudablo ?aimer in whffh they have acted in this matter Tbs Oumtrrru Mas ?

Another application can be made also to the tankers of the city and I am sure they are willing to give something in pre ference to your rising In violence. We can make also an other application to tho millionaires to subscribe. I know they will not let you starve. I am sure of it. There are thousands ot other good citizens having money who will be willing to do something. They are Jost as willing as I am myself. Now, those plaus or mine? If editor* would be ho kind as to advertise them? 1 would glvo half what I can sell for the benefit of the people. 1 would divide with you. I only ask one half for myself, to pay mv debts honorably, and the bulanoe I would give to you. (Cheers.)

She re mained in the rrowd , however, till the meetiug adjourn ed, and then she was escorted off in triumph. OTHER WmCCKW. The meeting was next addressed briefly by a German in the language ol his fatherland. Another German, whose name wa* not announced, next addressed the meeting, m English, subsequently repeating his address to Gorman. He said:? Fellow laborers, I am glad to see so many of my friends here who sympathize with me. as well as I do sympathize with them. But, fellow men, not only do we ourselves sympathize with you but even the ladies of this city sympathize with you.' Hero is a lady who ofiercd herself. Bho is willing to glvo the hall of her labor for our institution. Therefore, I say let us be united. Let us organize And let us not only organize for ths present time, but let us keep up our organization as a laboring class. I#t us keep together and stick together and be united. Let not any of us fali away. I?t no snake get in among us to make disunion We have had a good many trials, but we have passed through them successfully. We trusted to ourselveTand we were obliged to succeed. Therefore, fellow citizens labo 8 *'VC clMH,rs l0T the lady who gives us half her n'orjRl'fl ORATlOff. Mr. JivtM J. McUrnut next mounted thechAir and said Fellow citizens, I have to say to you, and you will endorse it by your voice and coincide with me, that we meet here to day to preserve tho peace of the city In defiance of the radical press of this morning. Do you meet here to pre serve the peace, yea or no F (Shouts of "We do ") ?iat is better than powder and ball. The radical press this morning spoke against you* honorable Mayor ; against one who is a morning fctar, like the leading star in the firma ment of the heavens, against that Mayor who sat last night in the Council Board to sign that bill for $260,000 to employ you to-day. (Cheers.) That Mayor, Fernando Wood, the man of the people, reminds me of another "man of the people" ? (meaning Daniel O'Gounell.) He reminds me of one who lives for everlrwting in eternity and who In his life gathered together multitudes, without bawonet. without sword, without powder and ball (Cheers ) | would say to the gentlemen reporters of the press, (hat to the JIkrai i>, Sun and Timet we return our sincere m?ed of thanks. The other aristocratic jour nals represented us as a corrupt set ot foreign tur bulant spirits. That la a base falsehood, and the meeting throws back the lie in Uatr teeth M^Tallmadge, the ?upermtenden:of Police, came here this mflkiing and saw the committee engaged at their desks be yond there, takingd own the name and residence of every individual that wanted employment, and say* he:? "Gon tlemen I am now saUaAetf that we want bo police here. ' "No." said the committee, "we want none, Mr. TkUmadge "No "said he, "you want none. You respect authority The law is protected by you ' You have to protect the law, and tho law guarantee* to you the right to labor and employment. 7k* (at t guarantor* you mnploymmt at a good reward in Ikt thape of money. That is ail wc want now. though we are represented as a turbulent set. That la all we want. Wo are now turbulent, are'nt we? (Criea of "no, no.") This whole mass assembly, ia ail its might and in all Its majeaty , will separate to peace and union. It is more powerful than that army which aaaailed the walls on the Crimean heights, because there they were baffled for the want of union, but we will not be baffled We are united. Every man who has signed our rolls may go in peace to his employment an 1 have it. And any other man that comes in to break the peace, we. as a com mittee, shall hand him over to the authorities, and have him dealt with according to law? have him dealt with as all disturbers and disorganize!-* ought to be ? as the ene my . in general, of the human family. We will have such taken care of. At a meeting last aight we resolved to do tliat Your committee never will cease, while there is a man in this land to be employed It Is not to put you to work alone that we want, but to put every man to work who cornea after you and who wants employment. I have no more to say to you but to ask you, as ciiiaens of this city, to return with your mna roc* voice a vote of thanks to Fernando Wood. (Applause.) There Is no politics in that. It is Justly due to a man who haa the interest of the people more at heart than the financial party of Wall street have their gold? and that ia dear enough to them, dear know*. We will assemble here again at 4 o clock, when some friends will address you, and the committee will tell you where you will go to work on that park to which your families will be going in a year or two to etvJoy them selves, and to take the ft-esh air in all their muslin and in all their silks and satins. (Cheers ) Yrmr children shall return thank j to these men, aud particularly to the lad v who came here this rooming alone to addrev you Main sprung from woman, and all bis first love gom back agaiu to woman. We all love her. (tod blees her. ?r. anwuei' wmm. Mr TVwlot the unemployed blacksmith, next occupied the chair as a rostrum. He said? Fellow citiaena and re spected laborers and mechanics, I have pleaded your cause, and made mrself responsible and liable to be in carcerate)! within tne walls of your prison If you had uot kept order to Wall street But you did your duly there, and I did mine towards you . and I tell you, this morning, I am satisfied with my tabor. I have conn to tho conclusion, that we do not vk any more than what la upon our banner, " Wv want work." Now that the ap propriation la given b* tho Common Council, we feel glad that we have made the move, for we have carried our object. We give credit to our fellow rltiaens that they have kept order and obeyed what I asked. Fellow citl sena. I know that my name has gone before the public at Urge, and although some of onr high authority* accused me as well aa my fellow committeemen of aeeking popu larltv In this cKv 1 tell you that If they only visit my do mlclle, where I live, they will not find much to eat for dinner any day fi r these last three weeks. I seek fbr no popularity. 1 seek no office. I told them I would tako my shovel aa well as my fellow men, and earn a dollar a day if I could not get more. What more could 1 My f f asked for work, and work. I said, we must have (Cheers). I feel gratified, fellow citizens, that as regards my*eiri have done my Just duty while 1 have been on the commit tee, towards my fellow man. as well as towards law and or der. I shall not say much this morning, because I havo made up my mind that H la of no use to talk any more I am satis Aed now that we have got what we asked That t* all we needed. 1 hope that order, love and peace will bind us workuigmen together, that we may show to tho community at large that we are a respectable body of laboring men. 1 hope that we will bind ourselves in unity , keep the n- ve, aed lore our country aa we love our children, (tiirers ) With 'heee few remarks I shall not detain you any loiig<r I feel confidence in you wko love me and reap-i t mt flor what I have done, that yon will keep peace till you hear the order* of your committee aa to where you are to go for your labor to morrow morn ing, and bow you will .jet along. You Will hear of further proceeding!) for work, ind I am Sure you will receive tho thanks of the community fbr your kindness in keeping tbo The meeting was next addressed by a German speaker hr. swmi's won. Mr. Chariot Rwmi no*t uddrtMuied tbfl mwtlnj?, and apoke substantially aa follows ?Fellow citizens of this grand city of New York, I am glad lo meet such an a? sembl ?ge of honest men here to day? men who aak no thing but their own rights, and who would lay down their ,. ence ** ,he "? ** others if necessary (Cheera.) All we have aaked haa been that work should be given to those who desiru to work for an honest sub. aistence for themselves and families, and I am happy to m y iuit the ( otnmon Council hire NrJtH up mir desire* by Mpropriat^the sumof?50.0?0 for the purpose of enabling the Central Park Commissioner* to r^rry out public improvements in that locality. They recommeod a? Vr P?bl,c improvements to be carried on fbr the benefit of the unemployed worktnjpnen 0f this city. But I was sorry to perceive thatjihe Finance Com Aldermen laeePKd m the report thai the leaders of this movement were not actuated bv laudable dealree, but by the selfish principle of seeking popularity for themselves Now. gentlemen it ta very durable to receive popularity when a man la running for office; but I am not running foe any office, nor la an v gentleman ol this committee an of what use is popularity to us, especially when wa have no money, not even a loaf of bread in the cupboard. (Ap ptause ) 1 will say for myself that when I camo to the first meeting called by the working men that I consulted with bo person m refcrcnce to the matter. J cum few* to ?m and hear what they desired, and when I found they wanted work I gave them all the assiManoe I could, an 1 they did m? the honor to nominate me to preside over them. In which poaitiou I hope I have not betrayed the trust th*. lias been repotted upon me. (Applause. ) Al though y<>? may have thought we were not urging on t'ii? matter with that energy you desired , yot we were silently at work. We told you to remain patiently till thui morn ing, and we had no doubt that our la bora would be crowned with sucoeett. I am satisfied that when we adjourn this meeting you will each go to your home, and prepare yourselves with recom mendations to get work from the Central Park CommU Bionerti, and that you will not go to the City Hall or have any more meetings there since we have acheived our ob ject. If you wish to have another mooting we will meet this afternoon, at four o'clock, and any good newn we may have for you we will be happy to communicate. 1 am glad that you have not done anything by which the enemies of the working man can say we are lawless and turbulent, for we have shown them by these mass meet ings that we know outfights and dare maintain them in a peaceable manner, wlien the jieople assemble in their might to demand a redress of their grievances, the peo ple who bold the reins of government will see that they cant refuse thoir reasonable demands, and that they must do something to rolieve their necessities. I am proud to say that they have done this, and for that roason no morn meetings need be held, and there Is no further nece^ity to speak to you any longer this morning. ] therefore move that wc now adjourn till four o'clock this afternoon, to advise upon the best means of getting work from the Commissioners, so that we may not staud around here idle all the <1ay. Alter a few remurkR from Mr. Ebner, who addressed the audience in German, the meeting adjourned till four o'clock In the afternoon, l'crfoct quiet and good humor marked the proceedings. SCENES AND INCIDENTS. The spirit of turbulence which characterized the pre vious meetings of the worklngmen seemed yesterday superseded by the spirit of fun. The cheerful prospect* opened up by the different speakers had a corresponding effect on the faces and tongues of the assembled crowd, and witty remarks were oonstantly intermingled with the cheers which greeted tho addresses. Madame Kunke's speech seemed to afford special amusement. Her gene rous offer to give all she had, and her life, if uecossary, to the cause of the unemployed, was re)>eau*d from mouth to mouth, and the lady was pronounced by some "a brick," and by others " a rale soger." While the speaking was progressing, small crowds were gathered on the outskirts of the meeting, discussing the probabilities of getting immediate work, and among these there appeared some distrust as to any instant i;ood arising from the grant of $260,000 by the City Council. The fact of the 71st regiment being ordered out for pa rade in the afternoon furnished a subject ol conversa tion to a small knot of Irishmen, who remarked that it did not look like peace to bring outa regiment, which they said was notoriously hostile to the Irish, and would not like better sport than to shoot down a few of them. At different part* of the square members of the com mittee presided at tables, and were taking down the names of those who wanted work. We oould not learn the exact number of names enrolled, but from the length of the lints and the numbers who crowded round tho table, they must have been considerable. Mayor Wood paid a visit to Tompkins square early in the morning, and congratulated the men on their peaceful demeanor. He told them that they would get work at once, and if they continued to conduct themselves in an orderly manner lio would stand to them like a brother. Mr. Tallmodgo was also on the ground at an early hour, and a*?ured the Com mittee that he was satisfied no breach of the peace was contemplated, and he thought the presence of Uie police entirely unnecessary. Consequently there was not a po hccman visible on the ground throughout the proceedings. THE WOMUNCnra IT TDK PARK* The Police on Hand Armed?

Mr. Bowles concluded by naying that oh tho other members of tho committee had not arrived, he presumed they had got no news , but left them wait patiently, keep the peace, and show that they love the city they live in and respect this noble republic. A <IK>TIK?4V then a<hlr<ier.?<l ||M meeting briefly, Itl German, alter which?

This proposition wad viewed with manifestations of discontent, as indeed watf the whole of Mr. Howies' remarks, as the |>eople evidently thought they were brought togetner for the purpose <* being Informed where tlu-y were to go for work in tbt) morning. Mr. luvts then took the stand and said, that it wim terri iilv) lo see such a sight, in a great city wnnmi Htorehontwtd srr tilled wkh luxuries, ax an assembled multitude oC sturvug men. But why was tbie? Because the laboring clashes were slaves. 1 be men by whose luuiits all Uei w< tilth was created were in a worse condition than tho negroet at the Siutli. The negro need not go ttround bog ging for work to get bread ? petitioning for the privilege to labor. Tflia was so because the laboring class were igno rant and disunited. They were divided, hocausn they did tint all worship at the same shrine <?r were not born on the same soil The capitalists were united, and they mado laws lavorable to their own interests. The workingmen could do the same it they would only organize and agreo. As it was, the rich class had no t'&ith in them, and they hiul no faith in one another. Whether the capitalist was born in Kamschatka or hi Ireland, he was recognised by his class as a gentleman, but they were always quar relling about religion and nationality, and tearing each other U> pieces. He recommended tho formation of a workingmen 's society, whiob should uot bo abandoned when tn>*y got (o work, but be preserved as a terror to politicians. When they could show tAe figures, let them vow by God that they would vole for nono but tno frienda of the workman. (Cheers.) He gave a rapid sketch of the bread riots of 1866, showing how the people got what they demanded by being united and organised. lint their committee stand here every day, and tako the names at every man wh<> would join their ranks. Mr. Itavw oeift handled the Innnlords. They allowed their poor tenanft to keep Just as much of their earnings as would hold body ai.d soul together? all the rest they sakl they must huvo: and if by chance a man had a little more, tho landlord said, "I guess I have not put on the screw hard enough,'* and thus, in case of sickness or wont of employment, tho poor man was redored to destitution. (Orion of "That 4 so" and cheers. ) The speaker then advised them to back up the wagon. Home people culled him a villain , MM ? rogue. Perhaps ho was both, but be did not care for that as long as he benefited the workingman; he would go ni for him He concluded by imprewuig on them the seem* sity of immediate organisation A riot was talked of? why, they were not organised lor a riot. If they did con template such a resort, it was better to be organised to act together in a manner in which they could recog. nise each other at least, and not be shot down like a help, less mob. (Cheers.) Mr. Koswiclt was the next speaker. Ha treated Uv? crowd to an essay on the banks and the system of tariff*. He blamed the bonks for all the present trouble. Them was a t;me. he said, when kings governed mun. but an*? Binary liehiud the thrones governed b?ah rulers anl governed. He suggested as a remedy that thoy ahmMI ask the corporation lor tho Crystal l*aiace- organise their mechanics there; let them send their work to the West and take payment In wheat. The wheat ih>y could sell to Mr. (Jnnncll or any other merchant. That was his plan for relief. Mr. Cass, a gentleman with gold spectacles, then ad dressed the meeting He sskl it was not to be disguised that the events which railed that assembly together wad more important than want of bread.
