of his terrible infirmity. of its seizing him with ten
fold violence at the inn of Mestri, and of the ftightful
foretaxlityrs he had felt as their wedding day approach

his voice, and at his favorite hour of midnight; in a
peaceful quietude that had not been known to him in

The - corpsa was carried to Venice, and interred by
the English woman by her former trysting place in the
Lilo. People wonder at her calmness under such an
affliction, for she lived on, but little changed, save that
she wascaler and thinner—from the quiet creature
that bad won the total affection of Volpurno.

were called into other countries, and she was left alone

on, and the finger of time imprinted the first furrows!

CLAY'S LETTER ON MAiONRY.—MoAt of our read
ers have probably seen a letter, addressed by Mr. Clay,
to the Antimasons of Lancaster county, in regard to
his connection with, and his opinion of, the institu
tion of Masonry. This letter we consider important
in more respects than one. It may serve to show the
extent to which.the people have been gulled, by the
monstrous and awful stories that have been told about
the dangerous tendency of Masonry, and contribute
• to bring back to the democratic ranks, many of those
who, though republicans in feeling, have heretofore
c.atapemted with the Antimasonic party, under the
-belief; that they were laboring to overthrow an institu
'lion dangerous to Liberty and destructive of Virtue.
We all know the arguments that have been used
against Masonry by this party. We have been con
stantly told, for the last 15 years, that it was an insti
tution of the most dangerous character; that its mem
bers were hound together by solemn and secret oaths,
and sworn to support and defend each other in every
emergency; that it entered the Courts of Justice and
set the criminal free; that it corrupted the elective
franchise; impaired the trial by Jury; disregarded the
promptings of conscience; and, in short, throughout
every department of business and every ramification of
Society exertded the most potent influence. That the I
most terrible punishment was in store for those who
revealed its mysteries, and that it stopped not even at
Murder, to subserve its object. These were some of
the crimes with which at was charged, and they were
urged with so much apparent fervor and persisted in
with so much pertinacity, that it was nor at all sur
prising that they had the effect of enlisting under the
Antimasonic banner many good and honest Democrats,
who, in their desire to overthrow what they deemed a
dangerous institution, perhaps never stopped to en
quire whether this was not a cunning device of ancient
Federalism to slip into rower under cover of assumed '
principles and name. The activity and energy dis
played by the leaders of this party,. gained for it a
strength in some places, and, on one or two occasions,
• supremacy in the legislature of this state. So far
from carrying out the original design for which it was'
organized, it exerted all its power to advance those
Federal principles which the people had before so re
peatedly condemned; until at length, disgusted by the
juggling and duplicity so manifest in its character, the
honest men win had been duped into its support, re
turned to the democratic fold, and overthrew at one
struggle, the men and party who had so deceived and
Add it is now, in their despe . ratien and adversity,
that the sincerity and honesty of these men are she wn.
It is now we see how much they believed the stories
they told about Masonry, and how sincere they were in
their opposition to it. Most of them are supporting
Henry Clay for the Presidency. andthe Gazette of this
.city, long the organ of the party. avows its determina
tion to support the nominee of the National Whig Con
vention, who, beyond all question, will be Mr. Clay.
'And what is Mr. Clay's oidnion of Masonry? WhY;
.he tolls these Lancaster Anti masons
"I became a Mason in early life from youthful curi
osity and a social disposition. All the professed ob
jects of the Institution as developed to me (and I knew
no other) were charitable and benevoleni. I n ever
did - contract, and never would have contracted, any
-ob/igations whatever, incompatible with my duty t., my
isountry or to society."
Fie says further:
4. / n.evenin my life voted for or supported any
/Mau, fur any civil or military nr other appointment un
.der the government.breause he was a Mason; nor a
:gains! any man be - canoe he was not a Meson. In
132 i, I voted for Mr. Adam., as President of the Li
n'ted States, although, as I have understood, he was
not a Mason: and against. General Amitew Jackson,
notwithstanding he was a distinguished member of that
Order; but ita proper to state that I was not at all in
fluenced by that fact. Among my most determined
.political opponents in Kentucky are Masons, who now
-or lately held, according to the newspapers, eminent
,stations in the Lodge."
What is this but telling these men thatthey are hum
bugs and imposters? The Antimasonic party assets
that the Masonic•is a dangerous, a blasphemous and a
bloody institution, Mr Clay says that all its objects
44 were charitable and ,benevolent." The Antimasons
'have al ways insisted that the members were sworn to
upport each other. Mr Clay avers that he never in
big life, act oven while a member of the Lode, voted I
for aman because he was a Mason. They have said
'that a Warm contracts obligations incompatible with
,hisduty to his country. Mr Clay says that it is no such
*jug- Why, what is this but telling them that they
are liars and slanderers? And does the Gazette vindi
ttate the Antimasonic party from Mr C's imputations?
I§79t, at all; but on the contrary considers his reply as
"highly respectful!" Mr Clay asserts positively that
she institution is a charitable and harmless one;—the
pasette will not "dispute Mr Clay's word!" and as
',jaw* that Antimasons can "support him without fear."
ipo the people want any better evidence that political
lintimasaory has been, from first to last, an arrant and
impudent humbug, got up to blind them, and transfer
thew to Federalists?: thau this recent admission uf its
organ that all it has uttered againit \T•rsnnry has been
mere "leather and prunella."
AMIIIIMAX I ) l l l9O.2lCrtS AT r.ts r):EMAs . s LAND.—
At a pnblie meeting of the citizens of Chester, Ver
mont, Nov. 24, Geo. Sutherland made an address, and
it was resolved that the President of the United States
be respectfully requested to direct the diplomatic a
gent of our country at the court of St James, to ask of
the British government the release of the American
citizens, now prisoners in the bands of that govern
mentat Van Dieman's Land, and that they be return
ed to their country and friends. The release of these
prisoners, who were taken in the late patriot war in
Canada, is solicited on the ground that many of the
leaders in the attempted evolution have been pardon
ed and ap:,ointed to office by the Queen of Great Bri
tain. The number of our unfortunate fellow citizens i
miled and treated as a penal colony in that remote
country, is said to be about one hundred. The resolu
tions are ably and respectfully drawn, and whatever
attention they may receive from the Executive at
Washington, these proceedings will not fail to awake
sympathy in other quarters.
AN HONORABLE TESTIMONIAL.—We observe a let
ter published in the Newcastle Gazette, signed by all
the boat captains and owners that trade on the Beaver
division of the Canal. and the principal business men
of the place, expressing the highest opinion of ALEX
ANDER NEWALL, &M., the Collector of tolls at the
Junction. and hoping thut he may be continued in
office during the next season. Mr NEWALL'S conduct
as a public officer, must have been highly praisworthy
to secure such a very flattering testimonial of confi
dence and esteem as the letter we refer to.
Cnuncn ROBEED.—The Catholic church in West
Troy was entered on the 6th instant, and robbed of a
considerable amount of altar furniture. Among the
articles stolen are four candlesticks, a chalice, platona
or silver plate, for common service. The burglars ef
fected their entrance by breaking a pane of glass and
forcing the springs of the windows.
Mr Payne, of Alabama, asked to be excused from
serving on the committoe on elections, on account of
delicate health. His request was granted.
Mr '3arnard then rose and moved to amend the
journal of yesterday, so as to insert his protest.
Mr Dromgoole objected to the motion. After the
House had decided over and over again the protest
should not go on the journal, he thought it surprising
that the gentleman should persist.
Mr Barnard rejoined, and contended that his pres
ent motion was strictly in order. He said he stood
upon the constitution, which gave him the right to
submit the motion. lie argued that the journal would
be uninteligible without th insertion of the protest.
Mr Dromgoole insisted on his question of reception.
4. He thoughtit disrespectful to the House fur any mem
ber to persist in moving to insert a paper which the
House had decided should not be inserted. He did not
suppose the mover meant any thing disrespectful, but
the act itself was disrespectful. Mr D. contended
that the Clark is but the agent of the House, and has
no duties but those which are prescribed to him. There
was another reason why this motion ought not to be
received. It was, that its insertion under present
circumstances, after the decided vote,would be a viola
tion of that constitution about which gentlemen talked so
loudiv. In the course of his remarks Mr D. alluded
to Bernard as the member who, with 45 others, were
desirous to acquire . the name of "protestants" of the

A RELIC OF EPA sr.—The New York Sun says that
some workmen engaged in digging up the street, on
the corner og . Houston and Broadway, threw up on
Saturday, with their spades, an old mile stone, nn
which was cut "One mile to New York !" This stone
was there years ago, when that part of the city was the
