DraTarsinua.—On Thursday morning last, very
early, Mrs.. Waiaiar wife of Mr. Henry Weikert
near Bonaughtown, in this county, was found,ly.
ing in a spring dead. An inquest was held over
the body, whose verdict was, "that she came to
her death by accidentally falling into the spring."
She was always esteemed as a good neighbor, and
kind and affectionate wife and mother, and has
left near and- dear friends - to main her quick and
anlooked for exit from among them.
THE SENATOR.--Let it over be remember

no one pretend, that such a ticket is •Democratic:
And let it also 'oe remembered, that the Anti.

trickery of the Lodge, it he is elected.

THE PRESIDENCY.—The nomination of
Mr. WIRT will, we presume, be highly satisfacto.
ry to all the opponents of Secret Societies. It is
a happy illustrAtion_oLour_principles, --It ahowe
that we entertain no proscriptive feeling. That
we do not war against . Men. That we think no
worse of any man for having been deceived into
Masonry, provided he is now willing to renounce
and join us to put down- ,that vibe Inestiiajou.......
Mr. WIAT had himself taken one degree fluty
years ago. Ho had no , k.nowhAmsvpf the abom
inations of the high degrees, But as soon as he
was convinced of their iniquity, from the late dis.
closures, he repudiated the Institution; and has
joined his mighty name and talents with the pure
patriots who are laboring to save our country from
its blighting influence. In talents, integrity and
honor, he is a host himself, and 'deserves the more
credit for now aiding us, that he was once in the
polluted den. Mr. Warr and Mr. ELLMAKER are
both of German descent. It would be galling to
the pride of the Great Grand Kings, if the two
highest offices in. the_Dnion should be. filled by ple-
.ian Germans I 1

it ridiculous, in one who has never had the
advantage ofa College Education, nor placed
in a•situation of life, to command any respect
or influence from wealth—nor has he any
claims upon the Flublic, nor vanity enough
to ever expect-any; further than what strict
justice may confer upon him, as a reward
of his daily labor, to attempt to_form any o

now agitated in the United States, establish

Being convinced that simple dregs often of

By this view of Masonry, we readily
conceive, the folly of the Institution, in its
childish pretensions. But again when we
consider the number of trunks to be opened
and the aggregate amount of payment re?

cilitythat, is gilien to the acquirement of an
inexhaustible finad to be disposed of; by the
Institution, in whatever way may be thought
prPper. This fund, although acquired by
the most simple - invention ever devised by
man, clothes the `lnstitution with a power
unknown to the multitude,- and hence the
evil; the members of the Institution being
