THERE'S MUSIC IN A MOTHER'S VOICE
• Thereto music in a mother's voice,
More sweet than breezes sighing;
• There's kindness in a. mother's glance,
Too pure for over_ dying.
There's love within a mother's breast,
So'deep, 'tis still diet-flowing,
And carp for those , she calls her own.
Tliat',# over, ever growing.
There's anguish in a mother's (oar,
When farewell fondly taking
That so the heart of pity moves,
It scarcely keeps from breaking.
And when n mother kneels to Heaven,
And for her child is praying,
0, who shall<half the fervour toll
That burns in all she's saying!
A mother! how her tender arts
Can soothe the breast of sadness,
And - through the gloom oflifo once more
Bid shine the sun of gladness.
A mother ! when, like evening's.star,
Her course bath ceased before us,
From brighter worlds regards us still,
And watches fondly o'er us.

-- "Good - morniu01 - r;Invoide; how do you
sell grasshoppers ?" said a fat merchant.—
"What arc they worth a hogshead ?"
The importer was astonished, but before
he had time to reply, in came a druggist,
who being bent on' speculation, determined
to purchase a whole lot, provided he could
get.thern low. Taking the importer aside
forfear of being overheard by the merchant
- he - asked - him -- how he sold grasshoppers; if
they-were prime quality; and whether they
were to be used in medicine. The importer
'was about opening his mouth to reply in an
angry manner to what he began to suspect
was conspiracy to torment him when a doe.

wondrous wise. •
"MrAnvoice," said he, "ahem! will you

"Certainly," said the druggist, "and wbcn
a. man advertises an article, it is - - - -natural for
,him to expect inquiries relating to the price
and quality of the thing."
"Nothing in the world more natural,"

In addition to the difficulties thrown in
the way of investigation, by the silence of
the public pre - s - :'s; thus coerced, the public
mind was distracted anti Misled . - by false
statements, in relation to the re-appearance
Of Morgan, published .in prints under mason
ic control; so"much- SI), that public belief
upon this subject was for a long tme unset
tled, and the efforts of the investigation par- ,
alyzed.. There can be little doubt but that
the authors of such statements contempla- i
ted such reeults, and hoped, if possible, by
these Means to avert punishment from the
platy, or to excite doubts es to the guilt of
the ngeMs in the abductßai.- , It should not
be forgotten either, that Corydon Fdx,who '
was heedlessly selected-to drive the carriage
from Lewiston to ,fort Niagara, not being
'at the time a Mason, was, a few days after,
admitted to a membership in the fraternity,
without fee or reward, in hope, doubtless,
that hiS mnsonie obligations, thus thurst up
on him, would effectually seal his lips, as to ,
the transactions which he witnessed, on that.;
At the time of Morgans. abduction, the
sheriffii of the different counties of the State
of New York had the sole power of select
ing, end summoning the grand juries for the
several courts within their respective coun
ties ; and such selections were made a short
time previmis to the. session of each court.
At the same period, also, (he sheriffs of the
respective counties of Erie, Niagara, Gen
essee, Orleans, Livingston, Monroe, and On
tario, which were the theatre
....„ 0 eof the outrage,
were all maims, and it is believed, that all
of them were of the degree of royal arch. '
A grand jury, which met in Genessee
county after the abduction, was convened in
February, 1827 ; 'Elector Samuel S. Butler,
Of Strafihrd, in that county, was. toppointed
foreman. He was to knight temprar, and a
large portion of the jury were masons. He
gaid - te-one of the' jutytnen, also a knight
templar, "a majority of the jurors are ma
sons: we have gouthe stuff in our own hands
and our friends must-not be indicted."
_ . 'Thelfrst - grand jury which waS summon
ed in Niagara county, (of which Eli Bruce
was sherift) after inquiries began to be made
in relation to the outrage, met in January,
1827. Sixteen‘masons were summoned on
that grand jury, and several who were friend.
ly to the institution. No examination was,
however, made before that grand jury, as,
the witnesses had been supcenred to attend
at that time in Canandaigua _upon _the_ trial
of Chesebro and others. At the court of
Oyer and .Terminer, held in Niagara coun
ry, in April, 1827, the - sheriff again sum
moned the grand jurors.. T ere were twen
ty-one members present, th . teen of them
were freemasons, and six frie yto them.
Paul Haws, whO hue since been found to be
an important witness, and Norman "Shop
Rey, were two of these Attend jurors: _At
the May sessions, a majority&mesims were
summoned on the jury, and at the Septem 7
lber sessions, about half of the jurors were
freemasons, but there were a number who
were warmly- in favour of the instiltition.
Eli Bruce, however, was indicted at Canan-.
daigua, a short 'time before the September
Complaint was made against Eli Bruce,
Sheriff of the county, before the April grand
jury, for being concerned in the abduction
of Morgan. The foreman, a freemason, ex
amined the witnesses. In the course of the
examination, one of the other jurors ventur

foreman called ttrirpror aside and privately
solicited him, thereafter, 'to refrain . from
