objections to this were at - once apparent,
and the usual mode of procedure at pre
viOus inaugurations was followed. The
platform has been erected on th e
Eastern portico of the Capitol. The
assertion of SqutOrn journals that mili

procession or escort for the President
elect are entirely without foundation.—
No militnry, companies from a distance
have signified their intention ,to, be in

Contrary to its , usual custom, the order
of Free Masons has dabbed a•little in
politics. lathe Grand Chapter of the
State of New York, which convened its
annual session at Albany, last week, the
"national agitation" came up for discus
sion. Their action was based upon a
recommendation from a Chapter in Ro
chester that the State Grand Chapter
open communication with Masonic bodies
in other States on the subject of our na
tional difficulties.• This was referred to
a committee, who reported adversely.—
They say that Masonry cannot rightfully
interfeie in the discussion such corres
pondence would provoke ; but they add
that to be stoical or indifferent would be
impossible, and it would be untrue to
say that Masons are or can be indifferent
to their country's condition; that love
for the Union of the States and the Con
stitution is a cherished sentiment of the
Order, and the preservation of that Union
a sacred duty devolving upon every Ma
son. They deprecate the possibility of
internal strife, and call upon the larder
to use every honorable and legitimate
influence to avert such a calamity.--
Their report; after declining to recom
mend •the opening of correspondence,
concludes with the following resolutions,
which were adopted by the Grand Chap
ter :
Resolved, That while we deplore the
present unhappy condition of our beloved
country, and while as American citizens
we would, under all proper and becom
ing circumstances, pledge "our lives, our
fortunes, and our sacred honor," to main
tain the "Union and the Constitution,".
and uphold the Government of the Uni
ted States ; and while we should, as good
men and Masons, earnestly labor, by the
use of all legitimate means, to avert that
great calamity—civil war, yet, as direct
official action on these subjects light be
misconstrued as an improper interfer
ence with the forbidden subject of poli
ties or the intermeddling with matters of
State, we as a Grand Chapter refrain
from further action.
Resolved, That this Grand Chapter
affectionately and earnestly recommend
to the Masonic fraternity throughout the
land, in this day of national calamity and
excited feeling, that they cherish in their
hearts and exemplify in their lives the
cardinal principles of Free Masonry, viz :
Fraternity, Brotherly Love and Univer
sal Charity; and thus, by precept and
example, sooth irritated feeling, allay
sectional animosity and prejudice, and
thereby bring, legitimately' and fairly,
the great Masonic fraternity, with its
moral and conservative principles and
power, to second the efforts of patriotism,
in seeking to avert national disintegra
tion and calamity.
ft; The spring fashions for pantaloons
are already out in Philadelphia, and of
course will soon be introduced here by
the "ton." The favorite style is a nar
row plaid, in enormous squares. Our
reportorial contemporary of the North
American saw a sample last week, which
he thus describes "One bar rests upon
the boot, the next at the knee, and the
third at the hip, the fourth forming the
waistband. The legs of the gentleman
sporting these trowsers reminded us of
the long loop-hole windows in the front
of the Eastern Penitentiary. The color
is a lively brickdust, barred with orange."
