Mi CeMreTtny with the Pr?? meaned MeetMg ?f Witlwhlwi mi the Aster Bin -The Question at bene?A FMI hfecoselawThe Cea* LL preabe Agreed mm, ^ fcc., ki?) kit The adjourned meeting of the stockholders of tbo Ainericun Telegraph Company, called lu relation to tho dllllcutties between tbo company and the newspaper prees, was held at the Astor House yesterday. There was a largo attendance of stockholders, and several members of the press of Mew York aud Boston were present. The President, Mr. Zkms Harxvm, called the meeting ^ to order at twelve o'clock. Mr. CamiHinoK Li\ i.NueTox rose to offer certain resolutions, winch he expected would be ad <pto<l by this meettug. Ho hud said yesterday that ho believed that the great propoi t.on of the stockholders had made up their Binds: but ho was rlso satiailcd, from what occurred yesterday, that many of tho largo stockholders ? . are desnous of baring a discussion. lie had A supposed that all the stockholders had read the 9 pamphlets issued, and that th< so pamphlets were ! the fouudalion of the call of the meeting; and believing that a very large proportion of the stockholders preferred * that the discission of the private Interest* 9 af the company should not bu had in publio ' he had moved an adjournment. He bellorod that a ma ^ " jority ot' stockholders would have voted for the adjourn -d saeut, and that the interest of the company would he benefitted thereby. But gentlemen had differed with him, and now, Without discussing the merits of the question, fee moved the following resolutions:? Rnsdvod, first, Thst the stockholders of the American IMegraph (.V nupany deem It inexpedient to take any ac- I ttoa r> latve to the bur mess for which this meeting bus been called, it legitimately belonging to the Board of Director*. Resolved, *e:otxi, Tliat we have full confidence In th? abilit\ aud Integrity of the Board of Directors to manage tile business, and that equal justice will be done to the paMIr, the press and the stockholders M*. Livingston went on to state that, although the rcaotations of a large proportion of the aiocklioiders reoommandatory to the Director? ought ti influence a body of Director?, still they had no K-gal power; therefore, wtial ?m ingot lh} inu iu mm <>i nun, it ooaiu nave BO controlling power on I be Board of Directors. The Board of Director* were, in fact, the Atlantic Telegraph Company for the existing year. Ho bel ctcU that was the law throughout England and the United States. Mr. D. D. Field would llko to ask whether Mr. Living ton held that the Legislature of a State, or that Congress, had power to make conatltntions. If not, neither bad the Directors the power to make by laws. Tho analogy was not at all perfect unless there was a special law of New Jrrtry making tfce Directors the masters and the corporators the a rvants. Mr. I insoSluB?Tlie Idea of the gentleman Is, that tho people liavr a right to make the constitution, while the issgisUUme a i jglit to nutko 'ho laws. We agree la thai. We haven ^institution. We are acttng under onr charter aod 1 tupp*-o Uiat that Is our oouatltut on. We ar ac'i'g ut <tcr bylaws authorized to be made by ^ Virtue if the charter. Mr 1?. P. Finn suggested that the charter did cot aathorise the Directors to make by-laws. Mr Livimistoz understood that it did. They had bylaws. and tin*"' most continue the by laws till they are repealed His opinion as to corporators was that they Bly had the po cer to .ustrut the Directors, and the Director- might or might not obey such Instructions. M the Boar'! f Directors did anything as a malversation la 'Mice, wlii-lln-r they w.-re instructed <-r not, the law would' 11 m li lie u.?r? a nv el ?:.

If reductions in the rales are made to ona class of customers, in consideration of sending long message*, these reductions should apply to ail other classes who seud long uu iwagce. If rivul organisations are formed for the traili-mie? on of news, they should havo equal privileges in the use of the limes, and tho succofu er tail ur? of such organ iaatkms be left to titeir own enterprise and ability, without relying upon the company for adveuUnions obi. strict und itnpurtiai justice being thus dealt out to all rival istrtb-s, it has upiieared to the undersigned unwise aud dangerous in liio extreme to Utmiicr ra.iVuially with (he tariff of rates, so long as the aggregate result mm found sail-factory to the treasury. In there opinions, or rather iu this t*>iiey, the majority of the Roaidof Directors do not appear to concur. By the a< tiuu and declaration of tho Executive Gnnmittcc, which thus far has been Kiintained by tho Board, the ur raugemeuts which existed witli the pn m at ifao time of the consolidation have br n disturhed. From a perfectly harmonious understand!, g, the attitude of tho company and the press is now on - ot hostility. Tb.a unfortunate state of affairs arit ca not so much from the actual changes which havo been made, although they are strougly objected to by the newspapers, as from the feeling w hich bus been excited in the leading proprietors of tho public press, tbat the c<.mi?ny Intend to ineroaae the rates, and in fact destroy all the existing arrangements for obtaining foreign and domestic news. The (Tocluration has bceu made to the undersigned by Mr. Russell, oro of the Executive ' Committee, that the New York Associated Tress must be 1 broken up, and that menus would bo found to acooiniilish T this result? Now, it appears to the undersigned, that tho ' Telegraph Cemiwny have no moro right to engage in the ! destruction of the News Association, than they have to ! ores* up a privaie iinn in truer uiai cadf partner may i be made to pay M|*r*tely for the despatches wh oh would conn-to all tn common. The right to combine to procure ' Intelligence Is U sacred as the right of the stockholders of this Oompfiny to nwciute t! emselvet together to build and operate "telegraph linen. It would bo considered tho height of folly for a merchant to ruin his customers in the hope thut better ones would arise, Phenix like, from their asb<*. Although tho undersigned predicted from the outset, that the press would bo ,'riven into opposition by the policy sml de<'oration of the Executive Committee, the crisis has been reached much sooner than they aDlioijated.
