Anecdote, of Gen. Houston.
About two years ago Gen. Houston, in
company with two others, left Nashville,
Tenn. for Texas. They travelled several
days through marshes and over mountains,
among Christians as well ea savages, with
out any thing very interesting or marvellous
crossing their path.
Late one beautiful' inoonlight'evening
they entered a village, the county town of
State of where they took lodg
ings for the night; the news was very soon
spread over the town that Gov. Houston,
from l'ennessee,had taken lodgings at --,
where, in a short time, he was greeted by
judge and jury,counsel and client, (the court
being in session,) by the accomplished fe
male, as well as the backwoods rustic, all of
whom received the salutation °fa gentleman
and scholar in the person of Gen. IL There
was an old man, with his interesting and
beautiful daughter,who seemed to claim the
attention of the general* more than all the
other visitors. There was an expression in
the old man's look differing from the rest--
he looked a language which said, "can you
help mei" and echo answered from the heav
ing breast of the daughter can you help!
The old man, many years ago, had taken
up a large tract of land. in that county, on
Which he settled with his young family, and
which, through industry, he had converted
into a very extensive and profitable planta
tion, hut had, inadvertently, omitted to enter
it. Sonic time previous to this event, a
"knowing one" ascertained that the old man
could be ejected,und Zee. ally too, set to work,
had the farm entered in his own name, got
a writ of ejectment, had it served, and in an
hour the old man and his family were turn
ed out of "house and home," almost penny
less. The old man entered suit in the court
for the recovery of his lost home, but hay

The general listened to his tale of woe, and
intimated that he would help on the morrow,
as on that day the case would be decided-

CO- The Superintendent of Common Schools (the

quiries,with respect to the present School Law,writes
to the lloard'' ' of School Directors of Norristown thus:
1. That the tax voted by the joint Meet
ing- of Commissioners and Delegates, 'must
be collected by the collectors of county rates
and levies,under direction of the county com
missioners—See sec.s,Act u1 . 1.834,and sec.
4 of the Supplement.
2. That the tax thus collected is to be ap
portioned by the Cominissinners in the ra
tio of the taxable:. ofeach district—See sec.
19 of the Act of 1834, particularly the lust
3. The School Tax is to be assessed on
all the articles which paid state tax at the
time of the passage of the Supplement, and
the assessment is to be made by the asses
sors of county rates and levies, under direc
tion of the Commissioners. The repeal of
the state tax for State purposes, does not a•
mount to a repeal of the school tax upon the
articles which paid that state tax.
4. And further, that there is no limit to
the amount of school tax,which may be as•
sussed for school purposes,except as regards
“posts of profit, trades, professions, occupa
tions or callings," upon which no more than
one and a half times the amount assessed

COLONELS Citocli.nyr AND BOWIE.—The

received from a friend residing in Naclnto
"During the siege ()Nile Alamo,the Mexi
cans planted a piece of ordinance within
gunshot of the Fort, with the intention of
commencing a brisk cannonade. Five men
successfully stepped forth to fire the gun,
and were each marked down by the uner
ring rifle of - Crockett: - -Tho -consequence
was that the gun Was abandoned.
"A characteristic fact is also related of
Col. Bowie, who formed one of that ill fated
garrison. When the fort was carried he
was nick in bed. Ile had also one of the
murderous butcher knives' which bears his
name. Lying in bed he discharged his
pistols and gun, and with each discharge
brought down an enemy. So intimidated
were the Mexicans by this act of desperate
and cool bravery, that they dared not ap
proach him, but shot him from the door—
and as the cowards approached his bed over
the dead bodies of their cotnpanions,the

the petitions of citizens of this common
wealth, praying for an investigation into the
evils of Freemasonry and other secret such).
That many considerations conspire'd to
impress upon them the great importance of
the inquiry with which they were charged.
The number ofpetitiuns referred to them was
very great—signed by a large number of
the most honest, intelligent and guileless of
our citizens. Tbey contain charges against
the institution of Freemasonry and other
secret societies,of the most alarming charac
ter, which, if true, could not fitil to render
them dangerous to every free government,
subversive of all equal rights, social order,
morality and religion. The obligation to
prosecute a careful and thorough iuvestiga
lion into these charges, became the more
imperative front the fact, that for many
preceding sessions of the legislature, peti
tions era similar character had. been poured
in front every quarter of the state, and had
been treated with marked disrespect, arid
their requests totally disregarded by those
who found private or political advantage in
steitainine t hose secret and irrespousible, but
power fel arid controlling governments.
The committee entered upon the discharge
of their duties confiden t that the just expec
tations of the people. so long delayed, would
now be realized. Not doubting that they
would be fully sustained in the use 41111 con
stitutional means necessary for the attain
ment of their object. They supposed them
selves justified in such belief; as a very largo
majority of the House of Representatives
were prolessed friends ofthe principleswh ich
had effected so thorough a revolution in the
polio ical condition of I iris state. They were
not at-liberty-to suppose, nor had they beep,
could they have believed that those princi•
pies were assumed for the mere purpose of
political elevation, and not from a thorough
and conscientious conviction of the immi
nent da noer of secret societies, bound teget h •
er by unlawful oaths. How far the charitable
(hell of the committee was justified by the
subsequent action of the House, will be left
to the people to determine, after having laid
betide them a faithful narrative of the facts
connected with this investigation.
The committee issued subpoenas for about
one huudred witnesses, embracing men of
all ranks of society, and every- g rad e of Ma
sonry within the commonwea lth. Among
them were all the present, and many of the
past officers of the Grand Lodge, who were
required to products the books, papers and
records of the Grand Lodge over which
they presided. That the testimony by which
the institution was to be adjudged might not
be supposed to proceed from unskilful or
perjured lips, several District Deputy Past
Grand Masters were summoned, among
• whom were George Wolf, George M. Dal
and T. Hartley Crawford, Esquires.
A few only ofthe witnesses yielded obedi
once to the law, and thereby evinced that
they deemed their civil superior to their
Masonic obligations. But the testimony
procured is highly important, and satisfac
torily establishes the following positions--
1. The revelations of Free-Masonry, us
made by Morgan, Bernard, Allyn, and other
seceding Masons, are genuine expositions of
the forms, ceremonies, oaths and obligations
of Masonry, as practised and admitted in
Pennsylvania, as well as the rest of the civ
2. The initiatory and other ceremonies
of the several degrees are proved to accord,
almost literally with the description of them
in Bernard's Light on Masonry, and Allyn's
Ritual. As none of these ceremonies are
without a significant object, it may be well
to describe a few of them.
In the first degree, the candidate for mys
tic honor is taken into the "preparation
room," stripped naked except his shirt; he
puts on a pair of flannel drawers owned by
the lodge, and consecrated for its sublime
ceremonies; his left arm and breast made
bare; his eyes tightly bandaged; a rope,
technically called a "cable tow," put round
his neck; thus accoutred, the proper officer
seizes the end of the rope; and pressing the
sharp point of the compass against his naked
breast, leads him into the lodge room where
he is duly received by the "Sons of light."
The master of the lodge recites one or more
prayers, and administers to the candidate I
the oath of secresy, whose conclusions and
penalty aro as follows: "To all which I do
most solemnly and sincerely promise and
swear,without the least equivocattorr,mental
reservation of self evasion of mjnd in me
whatever, binding myself under no less pen.
ally than to- have my throat cut across,, my
tongue torn out by the roots,, and my body
buried in the rough sands of the sea, nt low
water mark, where the tide ebbs and flows
twice in twenty-four hours; so help too God,
and keep me steadfast in the due perfor
mance of the same."' The ceremonies of
initiation vary in each degree; but the pre
parade,' of the candidate is substantially the
same. In the second deoree the candidate
is-attirecl or rather disrobed, as before; but
as the degree is more important, , the rope is
put twice round his neck, and his right in
stead of h is left breast naked: In the Royal
Arch degree, the rope is passed seven times
round his body, and fastened, in like man
ner, to a second and - third companion behind
him; for in the Holy Royal Arch it requires
three to make what is called a "team" for
exaltation. When thus prepared, the hood
winked "team" is led or rather dragged by
the cable-tow, under the "living arch" fem
. ed by the upraised clasped hands of the
members of the chapter. They are com
pelled to stumble over rough blocks of wood,
and frequently and violently pressed down
to the floor by the "living arch." This they
are obliged to repeat several times, when
.prayers are - offered up for their safe deliver
ance;- then is exhibited the scene uf• God
appearing to Moses in the burning bush,
with the mimicry of all its attendant circtun
• In the Knight Templar's degree, it wits
clearly proved,' hat ;inning other ceminutlies,
flu, sat:tumult of the Libatiou. is ad.
ministered to the :candidate out of a human
skull; and he Is compelled to take it. Many
of the ceremonies, which we have not space
to notice, are„ef a most horiid and blasphe
mous character. Many of them, to the
casual observer,' appear to be merely child
ish, ridiculous, and foolish. But they are
far from deserving that character. They
are founded in the deepestknowledge of the
human heart. For the safe execution of
the ultimate dark objects of secret societies,
it is indispensably necessary to secure per
fect -secresy. Although the candidate is
bound to this by the most appalling oaths
and horrid penalties, yet the strongest guar.
antee is the personal degradation which he
is made to endure. Pride and shame op - ee
-1 ate more powerfully than oven conscience.

ties, ceremonies and objects of the society of Odd
Follows; an institution little loss dangerous to the
community than Freo.Masonry. , As Masonry
has doelined under the pressure of public opinion,
this institution has flourished; and tf the elder
brother should bo doomed to premature death,this
seems designed to reign in its stead. It is fearod
that it may become even inoro dangerous than
Masonry itself. It is cheaper, and consequently
accessible to a more numerous and less cultivated
class ofpeople. Masonry Is the aristocratic, and
Odd Fellowship the plebeian order of iniquity.—
Neither of them can boast of ono virtue to atone
for a thousand vices.
But although valuable testimony has been ob
tained by the committee, which clearly establish.
es the oaths, obligations and ceremonies of these
secret societies,yetmuch,which was desirable,and
which the committee had expected to receive, was
withheld by the contumacious and rebellious con
duct of the Masonic institution, whiclr arrayed it,
sell in opposition to the constituted authorities of
the commonwealth; bid defiance to, and trampled
upon the laws, and finally proved itself sufficiently
st rong,und the House of Itopresontati vos
hy weak, to escape with impunity.
George Wolf; lute Governor of this common
wealth, was among the numbeeof those who ob•
stinately refused obedience to the law. The com
mittal) were particularly anxious to procUre his
testanony. Having had tho vast patronage of this
groat state at his disposal for six years, it was
thought that his evidonco would coofirm or con.
lute the opinion generally entertained among the
opponents of secret societies, that official favors
wore wantonly bostowed on Masonic favorites,
without regard tomerit.' Many millions of public
money had boon expended during his administra
tion; and rumor had cha. - ged its wasteful expendi
ture to the influence of Masonic oaths. Some
cases were known, and many others were ropor
tod, whore successfol applications for office had
been made to him, founded avowedly on the Ma
sonic obligation to 'prefer a brother" of the lodgo.
Ho was believed to havo pardoned Masonic con
victs on to application of members of the lodge,
while ho refused to extend similar acts of graco to
the uninitiated. All these things, he and tho fra
ternity well knew had beon charged against him.
Were be innocent, tt was duo to him to afford a
fair opportunity to vindicate his character. If
guilty, it was duo to public justice to invoaligate
and remove forever :he cause ortheiniquity. His
1 personal examination became the inure necessary,
as ho had carefully removed from the public ar
t chives all totters, applications and petitions for of
fice or for pardon, upon which he had foundedhis
official conduct. .
Tho testimony of the lato Attorney General of
this commonweiOth, G. M. Dallas, was desirable
for similar reasons. It was important fir the
gislaturo to know how far the Masonic obligations
intorfered whh, and perverted the fair administra.
non of justioq. how many culprits had escaped
prosecution or conviction, through the agency of
the secret "sign's" of Masonry. Instead of obey. 1
ing the law,and vindicatieg the institution and his
own official conduct from suspicion, ho not only
refused to testily in obedience to the commands of
the House of Reprosentatives,but treated the co.n.
mittoo with groat personal rudeness and inso
lonco. Tho proud, rebellious and kingly spirit
engendered by the principles and practices of the
lodge could not be more strikingly illustrated than
they wore in tho unmannorly and imperious con
duct of a gentleman usually so polished in his
manners, and so republican in his professions. Its
blasphomous and solf.righteous tendency were ap

prove its guilt, if it bo involved in iniquity. The

half-crown. Sir Walter balanced the half

dEORGE WOLF,' of Ponnsylvanin to bo
First Comptroller of the,Treasury of the U. States.
The above appointment has been rumsiv
ed for some time; and now bursts tipon,us
like a thunder. bolt in January. - It augurs
no good to the cause of Democratic Princi
ples, to find a Candidate rejected by the
PEOPLE, adopted by the Administration.
What a rebuke is here given to the friends
of Mr. Muhlenbergl What a dibastrou4
chain o'reveno calm se toDemecracy,would
have been avoided, had the opposition to
Mr. Wolf never existed; or, had it been
changed into his support, when the 7th of
March ConventiOn placed him in nomina
tion! We say, it augurs no good to Demo
cratic principles, to see a man rejected by
the People, adopted by the Administration:
because it passes condemnation upon the
people who rejected Mr. Wolf. Then the
question arises—were the party right, or
wrong in rejecting M r . Wolf? To decide
this we must go back to the doctrines of the
Wolf school—and whatever those doctrines
were, geode! bad—they have now been a•
dopted by the Administration. We were
opposed to three terrnsoleffice--sottMacious
ly espoused by Mr. Wolf—and as we con
derinied him for distracting the party—so
do we condemn his appointment to the Trea
sury, as indicating either imbecility or eor•
ruption—perhaps both. Personally we
know nothing of Mr. Wolf, and speaking on
political grounds exclusively, we think the
appointment an insult to Pennsylvania; and
a daring defiance .of the honest portion of
her incorruptible Deniocracy.
