The Free Masons on the Crisis.
Contrary to its usual custom, the order
of Free Masons has dabbled a little in
politics. In the Giand Chapter of the
State of New York, which convened its
annual session at Albany, last week, the
"national agitation" came up for discus
sion. Their action was based upon a re
commendation from a Chapter in Roches
ter that the State Grand Chapter open
communication with Masonic bodies in
other States on the subject of our national
difficulties. This was referred to a com
mittee, who reported adversely. They
say that Masonry cannot rightfully inter
fere in the discussion such correspondence
would provoke; but they add that to be
stoical or indifferent would be impossible,
and it. would be untrue to say that Ma
sons are or can be indifferent to their
country's condition ; that loire for the
Union of the States and the Constitution
is a cherished sentiment of the Order, and
the preservation of that Union a sacred
duty devolving upon every Mason. They
deprecate the possibility of internal strife,
and call upon the Order to use every hon
orable and legitimate influence to avert
such a calamity. Their report, after de
clining to 'recommend the opening of cor
respondence, concludes with the following
resolutions, which *ere 'adopted liy , •
Grand Chapter :
Resolved, That while we deplore the present
unhappy condition of our beloved country, and
while as American citizens we would, under all
proper and becoming circumstances, pledge
"our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor,"
to maintain the "Union and the Constitution,"
and uphold the Government of the United States;
and while we should, as good . men and Masons,
earnestly labor, by the use of all legitimate
means, to avert that great calamity—civil war,
yet, as direct official action on these subjects
might be misconstrued as an improper interfer
ence with the forbidden subject of politics or
the intermeddling with matters of State, we as
a Grand Chapter refrain from further action.
Resolved, That this Grand Chapter affection
ately and earnestly recommend to the Masonic
fraternity throughout the land, in this day of
national calamity and excited feeling, that they
cherish in their hearts and exemplify in their
lives the cardinal principles of Free Masonry,
viz : Fraternity, Brotherly Love and Universal
Charity ; and thus, by precept and example,
sooth irritated feeling, allay sectional animosi
ty and prejudice, and thereby bring, legiti
mately and fairly, the great Masonio fraternity,
with i's moral and conservative principles and
power, to second the efforts of patriotism, in
seeking to avert national disintegration and

their appearance in the neighborhood of Lin

and other animals. Several, known to be
bitten, were wisely secured, and became
mad about the ninth day, and were then
promptly killed. The better way, however,
would be to kill all dogs that are known to be
bitten, and thus put an end to the evil at once.

Partanuraza ? Feb. 22.
The President elect arrived here after four
o'clock yesterday afternoon, and was -at once
escorted to his quarters at the Continental ho
tel. Here he was welcomed by Mayor Henry
and Mr. Lincoln replied to the Mayor as fol
Mr. Mayor and Fellow-Oigizensof Philadelphia:
I appear before you to make no lengthy speech,
but to thank yon for this reception. The re
ception you have given me to-night isnot to
me, the man, the individual, but to the man
who temporarily represents, or should repro.
sent, the majesty of the nation. (Cheers.) It
is true, as your worthy Mayor has said, that
there is anxiety among the citizens of the Uni
ted States at this time. deem it a happy
circumstance that this dissatisfied portion of
our fellow citizens do not point us to anything
in which they are being injured, or are about
to be injured, for which reason I have felt all the
justified in concluding that thecrisis, the
panic, the anxiety of the country at tbis time,
is artificial. If there be those who differ with
me upon this subject theyhave not pointed out
the substantial difficulty that exists. Ido not
mean to say that an artificial panic may not do
considerable harm; that it has done such I do
not deny. The hope that has been expressed
by your Mayor, that I may be able to restore
peace, harmony, and prosperity to the country,
is most worthy of him; and happy indeed will
I be if I shall be able to verfy and fulfil that
hope. [Tremendous cheering.] I promise you in
all sincerity, that I bring to toe work a sincere
heart. -Whether I will bring a head equal to
that heart, will be for future times to deter
mine. It were useless for me to speak of de
tails of plans now; I shall speak officially next
Monday week, if ever. If I should not speak,
then it were useless for me to do so now.
If Ido 'speak, then it is useless for me to
do so now. When Ido speak, I shall take
such ground as I deem best calculated to restore
peace, harmony, and prosperity to the coun
ty, and tend to the perpetuity of the na
tion and the liberty of these States and these
people. Your worthy Mayor has expressed
thi-wlstin which I joirt with him, that it were
convenient for me to remain with your city
long enough to consult your merchants and
manufacturers . ; or, as it were, to listen to those
bMattir.p.ll49lPresiiikikthe consecrated walls
wherein the Constitution 15f-the United States,
and, 'will add,the Declaration of frdeilitidente,
were originallyframed and adopted. (Enthusiai:
tic. applause.] I assure you and your Mayor
that I had hoped on this occasion; and upon
all occasions during. my life thet '. shall do
nothing inconsistent with the teachings of
these holy and most sacred walls. I never ask
ed anything that does not breathe from those
walls. All my political warfare baa been in
favor of the teachings that come forth from
these sacred walls. may my right hand forget
ifs cunning, and my tongue cleave to the roof
of my month, if ever I prove false to those
teachings. Fellow citizens,
I have addressed
you longer than I expected to do, and now al
low me to bid you good night.Villattoo, tal&
irLait ME FLAG C :r ONIES THIS MORNING.
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 22
The ceremony of raising the flag with thirty
four stars over the Hall of Independence by
Mr. Istoomr, this morning, was attended with
all the solemnity due such an occasion. The
scene was an impressive one.
At the rising of the sun, crowds of people
streamed from all quarters of the city towards
the State House. Soon every inch of ground
was occupied by a large number of ladies, the
weather being cool and bracing.
At eleven o'clock Mr. Lincoln was escorted
to the Hall. Mr. Lincoln was received by
Theodore Cuyler, who warmly tvelcomed bim
to the venerable walls in an hour of national
peril and distrers, when the great work achieved
by the wisdom and patriotism of our fathers,
seemed threatened with Instant ruin.
Mr. Lincoln responded as follows:—Mr. Cuy
ler—l am filled with deep emotion at finding
myself standing here in this place, where were
collected the wisdom, patriotism and devotion
to principle from which sprang institutions
under which we live. You have kindly
suggested to me that in my hands is the task
of restoring peace to the present distracted
condition of the country. I can say in return,
sir, that all the political sentiments I enter
tain have been drawn, so far as I have been
able to draw them, from sentiments which
originated and were,given to the world from
this Hall. I have never had any feeling po
litically that did not spring from sentiments
embodied in the Declaration of Independence.
I have often pondered over the dangers
which were incurred by men who assembled
here and framed and adopted that Declaration
of Independence. I have pondered over the
toils that were endured by the officers and sol
diers of the army who achieved that independ.
enact. I have often inquired of myself what
great principle or idea it was that kept this
confederacy so long together. It was not the
mere matter of a separation of the colonies from
the mother land, but that sentiment in the de
claration which gave liberty not 'alone to
the people of this country, but hope to
the world for all future time. [Great
applause.] It was that which gave pro
mise that in due time the weights would be
lifted from the shoulders of all men. This is
the sentiment embodied in the Declaration of
Independence. Now, my friends, can this
country be saved upon that basis? If it can, I
will consider myself one of the happiest men
in the world, if Iran help save it. If it cannot
be saved upon that principle, it will be truly
awful. But if this country cannot be saved
without giving up that principle, I was about
to say I would rather be assassinated on this
spot than surrender [Applause ] Now, in
my view of the present aspect of affairs, there
is no need of bloodshed or war ; 'no necessity
for-it. I am not in favor of such a course,
and I may say in advance, that there will be
no bloodshed unless it is forced upon the gov
Then it will be compelled to act in self de
fence. [Applause.] My friends, this is wholly
an unexpected speech. I did not expect to be

the platform was bailed with an outburst of
applause from the surrounding multitude. Mrs
Benton, of the select Councils, made a brief ad
dress, inviting him to raise the fiag. Lincoln
replied in a patriotic - speech, stating his cheer
ful.complisuce 'with the request, and alluded to
the original flag of thirteen stars. The number
increased-as time rolled on, and we became a
happy, powerful people, each -star adding to
our prosperity. The future was in the hands
of the people. It was on such an occasion that
we could reason together and reaffirm oar
devotion to the country and the principles of
the Declaration of Independence. LA us make
up our minds that whenever we do put a new
star upon our banner, It shall be a fixed one,
never to be dimmed by the horrors of war, but
brightened by contentment, prosperity and
peace. Let us go on and extend the area of
our usefulness adding star Upon star, until

The multitudinous early risers of this morn

the streets were densely thronged. The Work

trades represented, principally machinists, who
drag along in carts their implements of labor,
rendered useless by political troubles, giving a
melancholy significance. Salutes were fired
along the route. They proceeded to National
Hall, where the National Convention of Work•
ingmen is to be held this afternoon. The mili
