thoro wore polled, in 252 towns, 12,08 Anti-ma

The Masoftic Jackson then are quarreling a.

Verity, those Peed Samaritami are possessed of a

and lay the Royal brood low. We have noted,
and we now state as a fact and dare them to con.
tradictit, that this year as well as last year, just
before the •Election, to deceive the people, they
kept from their Lodge for a.month or so, but im
mediately after the election_they return, like a
dog to his vomit, to their secret, unhallowed con
claves. Will the peoplethe RepubliCan people

such outrageous acts? No! Wo would "rather

"We declare," says; the dying. declaration of the
Hagerstown Lodge and Chapter, "that the Insti
tution ofllasonry has for its object, A deep reve
rence for the Bible." alir•
Paeor.—When the Masons in New York kid
napped and dragged from the embraces of a help
less family, a Father and Protector, a peaceful
and free citizen, who had committed no crime, or
violated no law other , than thatofMasonry, it was
considered thus far, by all honorable and true
Republicans, an act without a parallel in the his
tory of any country. But where is the man—
where is the Christian ; who does not recoil from
an liaatitution - that has stained itself with the
blood of a Brother, Husband and Father? That
denied him, while his Masonic brethren \voile
preparing to plunge him into a watery grave, a
BIBLE that he might make his_ peace with his
God and obtain from Him that mercy refused by
hie oath-bonnd associates? lie begged,
and begged again; YET au, 1118 ENTREATIES ‘VERE
IN VAIN! The Institution had taught them to "re
verence the Bible" too much to trust it into the
hands of one who had violated the Obligations of
Masonry: Hooch be the "reverence" taught for
the Bible, we pity those who may depend on the
mercies of 'Masonry for that Light which guided'
the weary Pilgrim unto the haven attest.
But it is. absurd in the extreme, for any man,
however infatuated, to assert that Masonry is a
moral or religious Institution. Because, Mason
ry is "at war with the fundamental principles of
the social compact"—is "lICUBOII against socie
ty"—"is a political monster as fearfuNis the
risible Tribunal of Germany, or the Inquisition
of Spain," and is "a wicked conspiracy against
the laws of God and man." Religion is the re
verse of all- this. Because, it teaches us to act
honorably, and deal justly with all men—to reve
rence and uphold the moral and just laws of our
country---4o teach and extend the Word of God
to Am.—to reject NONE, however poor and degra
ded—all, all are invited by Religion to partake of
its benefits. Not so with Masonry: She rejects
the old, the young, the . poor, the needy, and-the
.fairer part of the human race—and teaches those
who take the high degrees to abhor and detest:Roll;
Om! Behold, says the teacher of Masonry, "this
LrMonster which you must conquer—a Serpent
which we detest as an Idol that is adored by the
ideot and vulgar, UNDER THE NAME OF RELI.
MASOMM—In whatever view we may take
of the Institution of Masonry, we cannot, for an
instant, deem it worthy of that consideration
which others of more penetration than we. In
its pristine days, when it received the sanction of
such men as the Father of our country, - and other
great and good men, it certainly was deemed a
charitable and benevolent Institution; or, at least
it was so esteemed by them, until they had drank
deep in its gall. At the instant they had done
PO, we find them absent on all occasions, and re
fusing to be considered one of its highest officers.
For iostance, Washington was elected and solici
ted to nerve as (rand Master, but, as a good Pa.
triot, absolutely refused either to be cocitiriittr
as such, or serve as such. Others have followed
his track. In our day, we find that a luau and
a IrVIRT, have, when once satisfied of the useless
ness ofthe Institution (being too purely possessed
of Patriotisin to profit - by its allurements,) halted
upon its threshhold: and when convinced, by "11N
CONTR A mem) EVIDENCE," of the blasphemous and
Order i they-unhesitatinf,Fly raised their:voices and
gave their proud names against it, in defiance of
the whole mass of abuse heaped upon them by the
hirelings of the Lodge.
In a cause sanctioned by such men, shall we
dream, ultimately, of defeat? No! Who would
not like Poland be defeated in a struggle for
Fatacnom than live to be the slaves of a despot?—
Like Patricic lledry, we say, "Give us Liberty,
or give us Death!"

DEAR Sin:—As the time for the meeting
of the Convention at Baltimore is near,in
.punatanee of rev promise, I have the honor
to address you, on the subject of our con.
versathin at Columbus. There are now
three candidates tier the Presidency betiwe
the people. General Jackson; Mr. Clay,
and Mr. Calhoun,.have all been nominated
by their friends, in public meetings and oth
erwi -, and they must consequently, be con..
sidei as competitors tbr that distinguish
ed statton.• The addition of a fourth name
_list of candidates, and especially one
as humble as mine, mitfhtlead, in so tar as
any . influence could be attached to it, to
distract, still more the public mind. This I
do not wish to see, as I do filar it would be
injurious to the best interests of the country.
It; by a multiplication of candidates, an
election by the people should be prevented,
1 should consider it a national misthrtune.—
In the present agitated state of the public
mind, an individual who should , he elected
to the Chief Magistracy, by less than a
jority of the votes ofthe people, could scarce
ly hope to conduct, successfiilly, the busi
neSs of the nation. tie, should possess in
advance, the public confidence; and a ma
jority of the suffrages of the people, is the
only satistiictory evidence of that - confidence.

We-ration-of pi I id,. , •

__Whast-nwone-can--deny the •rightef,the
people to select their Chief Magistrate from
any of the branches of the Government, it
would seem that a member of the Judiciary
his name would tie likely to tranquilize the,
public mind, and advance the prosperitrof
the country. - •
Without presuming that my name would
be favorably considered by the Convention,
I have to request that if it should come un
der consideration, you will make known the
reasonszky,t most respectfidly decline the
honor, of being presented to that lompvable •
body for nomination to the - Presiderick* •
I would du injustice .to my feelings, if I
were not to tender to my friends in the Con
vention, my warmestgratitude, for their fa
vorable consideration and to assure them,
that I shall never cease t 6 cherish a recol
lection of their good opinion.
With sentiments of the highest regard, I
am, dear sir, truly yours.
