How were members of congress chosen in 1748?

Congress didn't exist yet in 1748. The First Continental Congress of the United States met for the first time in 1774 and were just representatives of the 13 colonies. The first elected congress, senate and President didn't happen until 1789.

Why was the First Continental Congress created?

In June 1774, William Pitt, a member of Parliament, asked British leaders to become patient. The first Continental Congress met because they were trying to adopt a more gentle way of governing America, and to possibly petition Britain for a more respectful treatment. This was not to be, and the Congress was forced to reconvene two years later to very seriously discuss independence.
