will, understandingly, ACT against the equal

been conducted, almoSt delusively, upon the
concentrated principles orMasonry and An
timasonry. It will be seen by the return of
votes we this day publish, that the people, in
thoie towns and counties whore Free Presses
have been in oßeration—where antimasonic
periodicals have had their natural, salutary
influences—where intelligence, which is
most emphatically the life ofliberty, has
been freely diffused, unrestrained by the

It is a fact, _that whenever its principles are
conscientiously and understapdingly embra

by "master builder;" once an anti-mason,
always an anti-mason; the principles never
can be obliterated from the bosom of the
