THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
A LADY FREE MASON.
The Hon. Elizabeth St. Leger was the
only female ever initiated into the ancient
mystery of Freemasonry. How she ob
tained this honor we shall lay before our
readefs. Lord Doneraille, Miss St. Leger's
father, was a very zealous Mason, held a
warrant, and occasionally opened a lodge
at the Doneraille mansion, his sons and
some intimate friends assisting, and it is
said that never were the Masonic duties
more rigidly performed than by them.
Previous to the initiation of a gentleman
to the first steps of Masonry, Miss St.
Leger, who was a young girl, happened to
be in an apartment adjoining the room
generally used as a lodge room. This
room at the time was undergoing some
alterations—among other things the wall
was considerably reduced in one part.
The young lady having heard the voices
of the Free Masons, and prompted by the
curiosity natural to all to see this myste
ry so long and so secretly locked up from
the public view, had the courage to pick
a brick out of the wall with her scissors
and witnessed the ceremony through the
two first steps. Curiosity satisfied, fear
at once took possession of her mind.
There was no mode of escape except
through the very room where the conclu
ding part of the second step was still be
ing solemnized, and that being at the far
end and the room a very large one, she
had resolution sufficient to attempt to es
cape that way, and with a light and trem
bling step glided along unobserved, laid
her hand upon the door, and gently open
ing it, before her stood a grim looking
Tyler with a drawn sword.
A shriek that pierced through every
apartment alarmed the members of the
lodge who all rushed to the door, and
finding that Miss St. Leger had been in
the room during the ceremony, in the
paroxism of their rage resolved' on her
death, but from the moving supplication
of her younger brother, her life was saved
on condition of her going through the
whole of the solemn ceremony she had
unlawfully witnessed. This she consented
to, and they conducted the beautiful and
terrified• young lady through' those trials
which are often more than enough for
masculine resolution little thinking that
they were taking into the bosom of their
craft a member that would afterwards re
flect lustre on the annals of masonry.
The lady was cousin to General Anthony
St. Leger, Governor of St. Lucia, who in
stituted the interesting race and the cele
brated Doncaster St. Leger stakes.
Whenever a benefit was given at the thea
tres in Dublin or Cork, for the Masonic
Female Orphan Asylum, she walked at
the head of the Free Masons with her apron
and insignia of Masonry, and sat in the
front row of the stage box.—The house
was always crowded upon these occasions.
Her portrait is in the -lodge room of every
lodge in Ireland.
The Child among the Coffins.
Here is a beautiful little gem. We
know not who uttered it, but it is full of
sweet thoughts and happy fancies:
"A while ago we told of having seen a
little child asleep in a cradle among the
coffins; it seemed like a flower in a cata
comb, or a tree of life growing in the
domains of death. Mortality had left his
contribution boxes all round. the room, but
the child smiled in its sleep, for its soul
wandered in the playground of dreamland,
where angels come out to join in the
sports of sinless infancy Yesterday they
coaxed it so far away that it will never
come back. They took it away down
through the aisles of Heaven, and hid it
under the Mercy Seat, until the evil days
shall have passed, and until time shall
have thrown its useless hour-glass among
the broken fragments of the world. The
mother looked in the cradle and thought
her child was dead; but it was only the
delicate frame where a jewel had been left
for a little while until it was transplanted
from the dim light of earth to the Sheki
nah which burns in the triumphal crown
of Death's conqueror.
0, for a death like the infant's who
slept among the coffins I 0, for the quiet
slumber from which the touch of angel's
pinions shall wake the soul ! For that we
would willingly lie down amont , Ln sepulchral
sculpturings, or put on the wooden shroud.
Mir If thou desire to be truly valiant,
fear to do any injury; he that fears not to
do evil, is always afraid to suffer evil; he
that never fears is desperate; and he that
fears always is a coward; he is the true
valiant man, that dares nothing but what
he may, and fears nothing but - what he
roar The tradesman who does not adver
tise liberally, has been very appropriately
compared to a man who has a lantern, but
is too stingy to buy a candle.
Oir • He that cannot abide the storm
without flinching or quailing, strips him
self in the sunshine, and lies down by the
way-side to be overlooked -ad forgotten.
Dresbach and His Tiger on Board a
Steambo - it.
In December, 1850, Herr Driesbach,
the celebrated: lion-tamer, being at Zanes
ville, Ohio, received a telegraphic dispatch
to come to Cincinnati, and bring with him
his pet—the great Brazilian tiger, one of
the most ferocious animals ever tamed.—
Herr, accordingly, took a double berth on
board the steamer "Julia Dean," putting
down the names on the clerk's book, 'Herr
Dresbach,' first berth, 'Col. Alexander'
(the name Herr gives the old tiger) second
berth. Herr remarked that the Colonel
was a queer fellow, accustomed to sleeping
out, and had, withal, a peculiar fancy—he
would sleep on nothing but straw ! The
Chambermaid took away the bed, and re
placed it with a full supply of that article.
Business and'preparations to start went on.
Just before the last bell, Herr and the
tiger made their appearance in the cabin
opposite the stateroom door. The clerk,
hearing an unusual stir in the cabin,
opened - his office door, and, looking down,
espied the glaring eye and savage body of
his Royal Majesty ! He recognized Herr
Dresbach, but did not relish the appear
ance of Col. Alexander! Still, he did not
feel like ordering the party ashore. He
felt repugnance to that undertaking, and
concluded to allow thingS to take their
wonted course. Herr unlocked his state
room door, and his Majesty at a bound
was on his straw bed. After a little time
spent in arranging his state room, Herr
satisfied the clerk and others that his pet
was entirely under his command, and intitt
mated to the bar-keeper that a bottle of
brandy would be relished by his Royal
Highness, (or himself,) which was brought
into the stateroom by the trembling wait
er, who had forgotten to bring with the
liquor the requisite accompaniments—pure
water. As a punishment, Herr told the
tiger to 'take the corner,' which he did,
and stepping quickly out, Herr locked the
astonished boatman in, while he went for
water! The man was so frightened that
he spoke not, neither did he move, until
Herr returned and stated that he need
have no fears, as the tiger would keep his
place until he ordered him to rise. When
night came, Dresbach locked his state I
room, bid his Majesty good night, and '
went to bed in the upper berth, and the
'happy couple' had a good and peaceful
night's rest. On arriving at the wharf,
Col. Alexander showed his approbation of
the boat by giving two or three growls,
interpreted as approbatory by Herr, and
the party sought a hack, which, when
found, happened to be driven by a son of
the Emerald Isle. At first sight the dri
ver utterly refused to take the 'baste,' but
was perfectly willing that Dresbach should
be accommodated. His fears were allayed,
however, by the tiger jumping inside, and
he drove to the Dennisson House, but
Dennisson resolutely refused to allow his
Royal :Majesty to take rooms at his hotel,
and Dresbach was obliged to take rooms
for his friend at Wood's Museum, while
he returned to Dennisson's, the nearest
and best place he could find. We pre
sume that such an instance of travel has
never before been recerded.
The Way to Eminence.
" That which other folks can do,
Why, with patience, may not you."
Long ago a little boy was entered at
Harrow School. He was put into a class
beyond his years, and where all the schol
ars had the advantage of previous instruc
tion, denied to him. His master chid him
for his dullness, and all his efforts then
could not raise him from the lowest place
on the form. But nothing daunted, he
procured the grammars and other elemen
tary books which his class-fellows had gone
through in previous terms. He devoted
the hours of play, and not a few of the
hours of sleep, to the mastering of these;
till, in a few weeks, he gradually began to
rise, and it was not long till ho shot far
ahead of all his companions, and became
not only leader of the division, but the
pride of Hal:row. You may see the statue
of that boy, whose career began with this
fit of energetic application, in St. Paul's
cathedral; for he lived to be the greatest
oriental scholar of modern Europe—it was
Sir *William Jones.
When young scholars see the lofty pin
nacle of attainment on which that name is
now reposing, they feel as if it had been
erected there rather than had travelled
thither. No such thing. The most il
lustrious in the annals of philosophy once
knew no more than the most illiterate now
do. And how did he arrive at his peerless
dignity? By dint of diligence; by down
right pains taking.
AT HEll. POST.—An old lady was very
much addicted to going to sleep in church
—a habit which she avowed she could not
help. One evening, a prayer meeting was
to take place in the church of which she
was a worthy member, and she informed
her family that she was going to it. One
of her daughters said to her, "It is no use
for you to go to church—you will be sure
to go to sleep. " "I don't care if I do,"
she replied, "I shall be at my post."

OF THE PRESS.
'The Horace Waters' Pianos are known as among the
very best. We are enabled to speak of these instruments
with some degree of confidence, from personal knowledge
of their excellent tone and durable quality."--IV. Y. Evan
Having inspected a lege number of the Horace Waters'
Pianos we can speak of their merits,from personal knowl
edge, as being of the very best quality."—Chr4stain Intent
Nothing at the State Fair displayed greater excellence
in any department than the Piano-Forte manufactured by
Horace Waters, of this city.—Churchman.
The following is taken from the " Christian Inquirer":
"The finest among the many pianos at the Crystal Palace
are those placed there by Horace Waters, whose instru
ments are always popular.
The following we take from the "Christian Advocate"
(Memphis, Tenn.:) "The Horace Waters, Pianos aro built
of the best and most thoroughly seasoned material. From
all we can learn of this establishment—said to be the lar
gest in the United States—we have no doubt that buyers
can do as well, perhaps better, at this than at any other
house in the Union?'
"Mr. Waters has been long established and is favorably
known. We speak from experience when we assune our
readers that his prices are below those usually charged
for articles in his line."—Jacksmzian, S.V. J.
"Your instruments are a sensible improvement upon
American Pion os, and an honor to the skilful manufacturer.
There is no doubt but they will be appreciated by the pub
lic and all admirers of true merit.—Oscar Comettcod.
The treble is clear, pure, powerful. and very melodious,
the base is deep, rolling, and sonorous: the middle] art is
rich, and sympathetic, and possessing the power of sing
ing, i. e. of uniting the sound of each tone, in a degree but
rarely achieved."—Henry C. Watson.
For power of tone, depthof brass, and brilliancy of tre
ble, together with accuracy of touch, they are equal to any
maker am acquainted with, and I cordially recommend
them to those wishing to purchase.—F, C. 2ixylor.
"Our friends will find at Mr. Waters' store the very
best asortment of music and of pianos to be found in the
United States, and we urge our southern and western
friends to give him a call whenever they go to New York."
" We consider them worthy of special attention, from the
resonant and exceedingly musical tone which Mr. Waters
has succeeded in attaining."—X. Y. Musical Wield and
"There is one which, for beauty of finish and richness
and brilliancy of tone, equals, if it does not excel, any
of the kind we have even seen. It is from the estab
lishment of Horace Waters. Being constructed of the best
and most thoroughly seasoned material, and upon im
proved principles, it is capable of resisting the action of
the climate, and of standir ' s a long time in tune.—Savan
' nah Republican, Savannah,Ga."
Waters' pianos and melodeons challenge comparison
with the finest made anywhere in the country."—lfonte
C. L. Sholes, editor of the Kenocha "Tribune and Tele
graph" says, "The piano was received in good order, and
is pronounced an excellent instrument by good judges,
the tone of it is particularly commended, as is indeed its
external workmanship and finish, compared with its cost."
Speaking of the Horace Wate rs' Pianos and Melodeons
at the Crystal Palace the "New York Disptach" says:—
" A number of these pianos and pedal bass organ melode
ons, from their great power, and fullness and richness of
tone, attract the very general attention and commenda
tion of visitors. Waters' "New Scale" is recognized by
artists as not only a sensible but important improvement
The " New York Express" says: " The Horace Waters'
Pianos arc pronounced by musical amateurs as a decidedly
superior article in all the requisites of this instrument,
and it is fast superseding those of other manufacturers."
The "New York Evening Post" says: "The Horace
Waters' Pianos arc excellent as well as cheap; but he has
those of other makers, as well as second-hand ones, capi
tally adapted to limited means."
Says the " Knoxville (Tenn.) Standard :" 't Mr. Waters
has long experunce in the business, and has gained a repu
tation 'unsurpassed fur selling the best instruments in the
The " Sunny South" reaches us with the following :
" This gentleman is one of the most extensive music-deal
ers in the Union. His pianos and melodeons have ob
tained great celebrity fur their excellent tone and durable
Says the "Valley City Advocate:" "We have taken a
look at a piano which has just arrived from the celebrated
establishment of Horace Waters, and must say that for
tone and beauty of finish, it surpasses any um ever saw
for the price."
Horace Waters' Piano-Fortes are of full, rich, and even
tone, and powerful—New Tirrk Musical Review.
"They are fully equal to any of the kind I have seen in
the United States, and far superior to those of a similar
make I saw in England."—Geo. Washbourne Morgan.
"I take great pleasure in announcing them instruments
of' a superior quality, both in tone and touch."—August
We don't know that we ever saw better pianos—pianos
better made s of finer tone and of greater power—than we
met with yesterday at the fair in the Crystal Palace. The
finest among them are those placed there by Horace Wa
ters, whose pianos are always popular."—Times and Mes
"The Horace Waters' Pianos now on exhibition at the
Fair, have attracted a surprising degree of attention;
they are unrivalled by any other instrument, in perfect
quality of tone and power."—Courier.
"The Mance Waters' Pianos are among the most cele
brated and improved makes of the day. For power, bril
liancy and richness of tone, elasticity of touch, and
beauty of finish, they will not sutler in comparison with
those of any other manufacturer."—Thomas Baker.
The "State Register" contains the following: "For
beauty of finish, sweetness and brilliancy of tone, they
undoubtedly surpass anything of the kind ever brought
before the public. They equal in tone the grand piano;
and being constructed of the best and most thoroughly
seasoned material, they are capable of resisting the action
of any climate."
Says the "Evening Mirror" : They (the Horace Waters'
Pianos) are very superior instruments and the maker
may confidently challenge comparison with any other
manufacturer in the country, as regards their outward
elegance, and quality of tone and power.'
