MR. CLAY—A MASON AND ANTIMASON.
A vet v remarkable suppleness has come over Mr.
Clay in his old age All his veteran opinions, which
Cileri:sted him like old armor, are sited as a snake's
stiffened skin and scales of the last year, and our hard.
ened Federal dtag,en of a quarter of a century shows
himself of a sudden in bright-eyed, lubricating youths
his complexion and nature apparently changed by the
fresh varnish in which he has dressed himself. Atten
tion bus been drawn heretofore to the changed aspect
which this outside conversion has given to Mr. Clay
towards his favorite American system. But there is
another point, almost involving his personal identity,
in which it would seem M r. Clay supposes the throw.
ing off his old slough will have the effect of making
another man of him.
Mr. Clnv. from his first appearance on the public
stage, has had the ambition of figuring in orders In
early Limes, in Ky., the order of freemasonry was, in
its mysterious magnificence, a great attraction to men
seeking distinction. Mr. Clay then made himself one
of its grand dignataries. He was the orator that sound-
ed the gory of the renowned society which .consecrated
Solomon's temple. He was a most conspicuous figure
in all its public demonstration?, while it was calcula
ted to advance his ambitious a spirations or his Vllnity.
In all the parades which astonished the backwoods-
man's w ordering eye, when visiting Lexington, the
first great city of the West. Mr. Clay's tall and gaze
soliciting l esson was most conspicuous. On him, as
grand orator, were - shown the ribands and badges of
the order, and these, with a gorgeous apron covered 1
twit pictured implements he never used, and dotted
with the all-seeing eye like a peacock's tail, made
lion as magnificent in full costume as a prince of Asia,
where the order had its birth. Mr. Clay wore the
honors of a ROYAL ARCH MASON—which, one of the
fraternity tells us, is six degrees. This superior eleva-
Lien could only be attained by great proficiency in the
craft; and yet Mr. Clay, in a late letter, pretends be is
:ucit a bungler, such a novice, that he could not now
enter a common lodge ! - 1
We have two letters of Mr. Clay to the anti-Masons,
at two different eras, which will show how different
' Mr. Clay thought and felt in regard to the order to
which he belonged, at two epochs, in which his per
,..ottal interests scented to him to have changed his
relations to it. In his first letter, in 1831, he scorned
to tell the anti. Masons what he thought of masonry :
" A compliance on my part with your demand would
',nu:Tint to an admission that individual sentiment
on the svkiert of masonry formed a proper con
sideration in regulating the exercise of the elective
franchise in respect to the offices of the Federal
Government. I can make no such admission."
Then, ,ontempt for antimasonry was Mr. Clay's cue.
Thin is but little disguised throughout the whole letter,
which holds a haughty tone, scarcely decorous to the
class of citizens to whum it was addressed.
But, in the Harrisburgh convention. the anti-masons
made t hemselves felt against his nomination; and now
he wants their votes. He baa, therefore, written an
other letter, conceived in a very different spirit. He
begins by apulogisin,g for ever basing lseen a MUM.
"I became a mason in early I, fe, from youthful cur
iosity and a social disposition." Poor young lad !
He was seduced by the veterans of the lodge,by play
ine on his "youthful curiosity and social disposition."
Poor vonnlz u Linton ! he suffered in a great variety of
waN .5 fr.rn this singular temperament. But how long
slid he remain in this mysterious connection, which he
says he "never had an% taste for ?" According to hie
owl, account, he served a much longer time in his ap
prenticeship than the law requires of a man to serve in
the militia, to ()main a discharge with all the boners of
a citizen soldier. Forty-five years relieves a man from
militia sec ice. Mr. Clay says, nineteen years ago ha
retired fol) the dillies of the lodge. "Retirement
from the lodge," our readers will remark, is not an
abandonment of the society. Mr. Clay, then, was
nearly fifty years of age before his "youthful curiosity
and social disposition" were satisfied. Now what
pardon can he expect Open his plea of nonage, and be
inz r.- n is be the masons under a fit of juvenile in
discretion, when we find our lad of fifty blazing in all
the riliands and tinsel, the signs and emblems of ma

is to make up fur his perseverance in learning, those
mysteries fur which he had no taste. '•.:Vor do 1 be

tellect, who, after at least thirty years' devotion to
masonry anti passing through all its degrees to the
highest. that fancies that he could not now,‘an hisovrts

schools. How obtuse, how vets oblivious. Mr. Clay
becomes, whet, for the sake of the antimasonic vote to
lift him to the Presidency, he is disposed to (imp his
life of the last fifty years gone hy, and assume that prim
eval innocency and simplicity w hi c h characterized him
berme the m asons took advantage of his "youthful cu
riosity and social disposition," and dipped him in the
pool of that mysterious and secret association which
lie would forget that he ever knew.
But we give the twolettels, that all interested may
coatrastthe candidate of 1831 with the candidate of
1343—his young boyhood of masonry up to the age of
30, with his old boyhood of anti-masonry at near 70.
ASHLAND, OC t . 8,1831.
Gentlemen: I hope you will excuse the delay in
acknowledh•ing the receipt of your letter of the 2d ult.,
which ha::: arisen from mV absence from home, and
from various en garments.
Wa.iviitg the considerations that I have no knowledge
of the existence of an antimasonic meeting in Hatis:,,t
ner, Indiana, other than that which is derived
your letter. nor from your appointment as a conamiTto6:.":4
to correspond with me, other than your statement"; .71's
nor the satisfaction of a personal rcquaintance with
you. I will i.rocerd at once to reply to your letter. Its
professed object in to ascertain my sentiments on the
nubject of masonry; and the r eason assigned by you for
this inquiry is thus stated by yourselves; "Al we are
again shortly to be called upon to choose a man to
preside mer the councils of our nation; an it will then
be our ditty and our privilege to raise our bumble but
independent voice in favor of our suffrage, and as you
now stand a candidate for a liieh and important station,
as your fliends and your fellow citizens; we wou ld VI. -
licit from you a frank and candid statement of your
sentiments ;in this subject."
I do not know a solitary provision in the Constitution
of the United States which conveys the slightest au
thinity to the General Government to interfere, one
way or another, will either masonry or antimascry.
If, thelvfore, a President of the United Staten, of any
other functionary of that G-v,:rnment, were to employ
his official power to sustain, or to abolish, et to ad
vance the interests of masonry or antimasonry,it would
be an act of usurpation or tyranny.
You have not called upon me for my opinion upon
any great practical measure falling within my scope of
Federal powers; but passing by every question Of vi tal
interest within the sphere of its operations, you de
mand my sentiments upon a subject with which I hum
bly conceive, it has nothing to do: and you place this
demand on the ground of the influence which my seri
tiritent: might exert upon the exerciscoran undoubted
and important privilege which you possess as Citizens
of the United Staten.
A compliance nn my part with your demand, vriatild
amount to an implied admission that individual sen
timent, on the sokisct of masonry formed a proper-
I consideration in regnlating the exercise of the elec
.' tine franchise inre‘pect to office , tr. the Federal Gov
ernment. 1 can make no such admission. I cannot'
believe that whether Tam hostile or friendly to me
ionry or antima.sonry is at all material in the forms'
tion of any judgment, on the part of fellow citizens,
