.1 HASEI 8BU R G, PA., TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 18, 1869.. PROTECTION vs. FREE TRADE. As the advocates of Free Trade are, just now, particularly busy in their efforts to propagate the peculiar doctrines of the anti - American sect to which they belong; and whilst they hare in the field as lecturers, men from the New England States reported to be recent converts to the cause, and therefore ardent in its support, and supplied with all the necessary information and arguments for maintaining it, we have no doubt they will be pleased to answer any question that may be put to them by protectionists because it is only by confuting the doctrines of the tariff party that they can hope to extend and establish their owu and acquire an ascendency in the governmeut of the country.. Well, then, under this impression, we. submit to them something to answer," from the Miners' Journal. Suppose (says that well informed paper) we take the duty off iron as the free traders desire, what would be the result, we ask? The wages are, for puddling a ton of iron in England, $2 37 ; in Belgium, $1 20; in the United States, $4 37J - gold. The average weekly earnings in gold in the United States are, $10 51; in Eog land, $8 75 ; in France, $8 00, and iu Belgium, $G 00. The price of freight on a ton of iron from either England, Belgium or France, to New York, is not as great as from Pottsville to New York. Now cannot any person see that with such competition, under free trade, our Iron establishments must close or wages must be reduced to the European rates? Recollect that in England, France and Belgium there are nearly as many iron establishments standing idle, for the want of a market for their products, as we have in the United States. In England, Wales and Scotland alone in 1867, out of 913 furnaces built, 350 were standing idle, while we pro duced in 1867 only 1,401,026 tons against 4,761,028 produced in England. By starting these furnaces, England alone could supply us with a quantity equal to our whole product. . Under free trade for iron business of the United States would have to be abandoned or wages reduced nearly one half of the present rates. 'We can only maintain the iron trade in the country by protective duties. France which produced more iron in .1867 than the United States did, built up her iron trade by prohibitory duties, and even now finds it necessary to protect her iron trade by duties, although labor is lower in France than in England. We have singled out the iron trade, because we have statistics at hand but the same argument applies to nearly all other branches of industry in this country; and if we abandon manufactures we must all go to farming and who is to buy the surplus produce? Europe only takes it when they cannot raise sufficient for themselves ; and besides, with every ton of iron, or yard of goods, &c. , that we import, we import also products of the farm that were consumed by those who manufactured the goods, thus crippliog the home market for onr farmers to that extent, while the importations of produce, in the shape of manufactures, would far exceed ail our export - ationa. Don't you think, therefore, that for an American to be a free trader (unless he is an advocate for a reduction of wages to nearly the European standard) it is but one remove from a , whatever you may choose to call him ? CHURCH QUESTIONS. It has been decided in a recent trial that music is a part of religious service. In the suit of the Session of Walnut Street Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, against the Board of Trustees, to prevent the latter from .introducing into the religious 'services of the church a paid choir of vocalists, Judge Pierce, of the Court of Common Pleas, on Saturday decided that church .music is connected with . the religious service, and not with the temporal interests of the church, and hence must not be under the control of the Board of Trustees, but under that of the minister and Session. The unhappy congregation will henceforth be compelled to do without the ' performance!' of worship. A case bearing some analogy to the above is creating considerable interest in the Protestant Episcopal Church. Bishop M'llvaine has presented for trial the Rev. Colin Tate, of Columbus, Ohio, for an alleged violation of his engagement to conform to the doc - trines and worship of his denomination. The question involved is whether it is lawful to make the singing of processional hymns by a snrpiiced choir a Dart of the regular order of worship. Mr. Tate has applied to the American Church Union for their advice, and they have determined to furnish him with the necesssary pecuniary means for trying the question on its merits. In view of these and the many other church dissensions which so frequently occur, perhaps the Ames Brothers, of North Easton, Massachusetts, are not far wrong in declaring their intention to erect "a new church for promoting Christianity on a liberal scale." WHIPPING POST AND PILLORY. The barbarians of Delaware, on Saturday last, " cracked their whip in the face of civilization," at New Castle. The new whippingpost and pillory were duly inaugurated. Three petty offenders were successively exposed in the latter, and seyeral others, whose grade of offense was higher, received respectively from tea to thirty lashes at the former ; and all this barbarity was exhibited in the presence of "a gaping crowd of men, women and children." What manner of people are those Dela - warians? Surrounded by civilization, having constant intercourse with civilized and Christian people, how comes it that they are neither civilized nor Christian ? Such an infamous exhibition is a blur npon our free institutions, and outside the State which tolerates it is universally execrated. Let us hope that the custom which neither a sense of decency nor respect for Christianity seems able to overthrow, will soon fall before the might of public opinion, never to be revived, and to be remembered only with shame and regret. t A Hope Realized. The Georgia paper which "playfully" hoped that the Republican members of the Legislature who went to Washington to urge the restoration of the Republicans expelled from the Legislature by the rebels would perish by the wayside on their return, has had its "playful" suggestion acted upon. Two members of the delegation have already perished by the hands of the assassin, exactly aB'suggested, and two more are reported to have met the same fate. We should fancy that "playful" editor's neck would ache every time he passed under the limb of a tree. The largest amount of indigo ever brought to this country in any one vessel arrived at Boston, on Thursday last, on the ship Andrew Jackson, from Calcutta. Among her cargo, valued at $700,000, were 651 chests of indigo, worth $415,000 in currency. UN WORTHY OF TRUST. We could not ask to point to a more signal example of the incompetency of the Democratic party to select worthyulers, in order to convince the people of the folly of trusting them again with power, than the case of Mayor Fox, of Philadelphia. He was looked upon as a man of untainted morals, and prior to the election was presented to the people as a reform candidate, whose election was necessary to purge the city administration of its impurities, and root out the rogues who had so long disturbed the peace and preyed upon the substance of the citizens. He was blazoned upon every Democratic banner as a model man and perhaps he was one of the best in the ranks of that parly; the only one, probably, whom they could find to present as a candidate whose character gave them any chance for success. And yet see, by the showing of his own partisans, what manner of man he has turned out to be. If he, their purest, has fallen, in the brief period of a few months, from the proud eminence of virtue ascribed to him down, down, down to the lower depths of moral degradation, how can we look for fidelity, integrity, morality or justice from any of their party nominees for either municipal or State offices, if unfortunately they should be elected ? The truth i3, the Democratic party have become so generally and thoroughly imbued with political depravity, so totally demoralized in every sense, that it would be sheer madness on the part of the people to restore them to power, Let thrse who doubt this, and feel disposed to ascribe our opinion and warning to partisan animosity, or individual interest, read and ponder well the following remarks which we copy from yester day's issue of the moat ultra Democratic paper published in Philadelphia, the Sunday Mercury : MAYOR FOX AND Ills APPOINTMENTS. There is no longer any use in disguising the fact that Daniel M. Fox is a failure a palpable mistake. Since his inauguration he has actually lost his identity, and the Fox of to day is no more the r ox or a year ago, than the Constitution of our common country today is the good old instrument of Democratic peace and prosperity. By vacillation, double - dealing, and deception, he has lost his own manhood and the affections of a party who, a few months ago, pointed to him with pride as a man of truth and honor. He has turned his back upon his best friends, and now fra ternizes with his worBt foes. Even those COaservative gentlemen of the opposition who. sick and disgusted with Radical muni' cipal rule voted with the Democracy to inaugurate a new system of things .in this crime ridden city, are in turn disgusted with Daniel M. Fox, on account of the character of a large namber of his appointments, taken contrary to the expectations of the respectable portion of both parties, from the worst possible grade of our community. Men guilty of every imaginable crime have been appointed to places on the police force to gratify certain designing politicians, and to make friends of another certain class of political contractors. In fact, Mayor Fox has so completely given himself away to rogues of every grade from the petty thief to the wholesale robber, from the common "Tommy Dod " to the magnificent and diamond - decked gambler, from the ordinary street - rowdy to the professional " P. R." champion, from the seedy inebriate to the drunken, brutal wife beater that his - best ,and oldest friends scarcely recognize him. We had contemplated giving this week a list of his worst appointments, but have been dissuaded from our intention by a number of gentlemen who, while they think ef Mayor Fox as we do. have the success of Democratic principles at heart, as we have. It will not be many ' days, however, before the Mayor will have an opportunity of reading the character of a majority of his appointments in an opposition journal, prepared by one who is better acquainted with their criminal histoiy than we are or care to be. With rare exceptions the Democracy have been very fortunate in the selection of their National, State and Municipal heads. Mayor, Fox, we are sorry to say, is one of the exceptions. THE COAL MINERS' STRIKE. The strike among the coal miners is creating considerable trouble among themselves, while the coal operators take no part whatever in the matter, which creates a general impression among outside parties .that they are perfectly satisfied to lay idle, at least for a while. The Scranlon Republican of yesterday publishes the following on the subject, viz : It is to be decided to - day or to - moirow whether the miners of Hyde Park are free to control their own action, or whether they are to be led by the nose by a few strong willed, determined outsiders. Our opinion is that the outside agitators will find as determined spirits in Hyde Park as their own. The Hyde Pafk men have held meeting after meeting, to consider suspension. They have listened patiently to long speeches by Mr. Fincher and Mr. Williams, in favor of suspension. Al.er a further consideration of the matter, they have decided that it is not for their interest to suspend. That would appear to be enough. But it seems not. The General Council, lately in session at Hazleton, arrived here in a body on Saturday, led by their rresiaent, Mr. John Parker, of Mahanoy City, their Secretary, Mr. T. M. Williams, of Wilkes - barre, and accompanied by their paid speaker, Mr. Fincher, who has no more interest in the welfare of the miners than he has for that of the Egyptians. This party tried to have a meeting of the Hyde Part Miners' Union called Saturday night for their convenience, but as the members usually call the meetings for their own convenience, none was called. The party now demand to have one called this evening, and though it is a well known rule of the Union to allow only its own members to participate in its deliberations, the General Council, we suppose, expect to claim the right not only to be present, but to do the talking and "run the meeting." It is said that, if they cannot get a meeting called, they will hire Fellows' Hall themselves, drum in a lot of drivers, boys, miners not members of the Union, &c, and pass a resolution to suspend right over the head of the regular miners' organization! After that, the next thing would be to get such a resolution enforced, which might be found troublesome. This is the same party which three or four days ago not only refused the delegate of Hyde Park, Mr. Morgans, a hearing in the Council at Hazleton, but actually excluded him from the session, treated him like a spy and an interloper, and sent him home in disgrace; now they come here to compel Hyde Park to adopt their views instead of her own. That is, Hyde Park shall have no voice in deciding what other sections are to do, but other sections shall have all the voice in deciding what Hyde Park is to do even to overriding her own decision I Can the General Council expect public sympathy in such a tyrannical course as this ? Fourth of July. This year the Fourth of July falls on Sunday, and some papers in the State are agitating the question of having the anniversary celebrated on Saturday instead of on Monday, according to the usual custom. The New York Commercial Advertiser says : "How much better it would be to have the celebration on Saturday. Then comes the day of rest, and the week is entered npon unbroken. If Monday is celebrated, Tuesday becomes a hard and listless day. Besides, the Sunday is never exempt from interruption. Young America is too irrepressible, and fire works will explode on that day in spite ot every precaution." Tug Fourth Commandment has a very free interpretation in Texas. The Galveston Dispatch, of the 9th, publishes the following aotice : Look out for Sunday, May 9, 1869, at 4 p. M. Five horses of recent importation are to run on the Beach, on Sunday evening, for a purse of $250. Come one, come all to see the tun. Denies It. The British paper New York, the Albion, denies "on the best authority" that England is concerned in the reported foreign alliance against the United states, and believes the report is "equallv untrue with regard to the other powers." The exports, exclusive of specie, from New York to foreign ports, from January 1st to May 11th, 1869, amounted to $00,193,206. During the same period last year they amounted to $65,112,464, showing a falling Off of $4,919,198. I. O. of O. F! Meeting of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. House of Representatives Filled With the Fraternity. Over 50 0 Representatives in Attendance. The State Capital Extends Cordial Welcome. a ADDRESS OF HIS GOV. JOHN W. EXCELLENCY, GEARY. Address of His Honor, Mayor W. W. Hays. Addreas of Welcome on (lie Part of (he Odd Fellows of the State Capital, by B. A. Lamberton, Esq. REPLY OF PAST GRAND MASTER J. B. NICHOLSON, ON THE PART OF THE GRAND LODGE. &C, &C, &C, &C. The Grand Lodge I. O. O. F. of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, met in the Hall of the House of Representatives this morning at 9 o'clock. Ere the hour designated for the opening exercises had arrived, the hall was nearly filled, and by the time the Most Worthy Grand Master, Peter B. Long, took the chair, over five hundred delegates had reported. There were also in attendance a number of Past Grand3 of various lodges, besides a goodly number of visitors, who had been drawn thitherto witness the opening exercises, which were made public. THE HALL. The room we noticed has been adjnirably fitted up by the committee of arrangements, composed of members of the several lodges of this county. I be aesKs ot tne memDers ot tne House are all removed, and chairs, settees, &c, placed in their stead, until nearly every available part of the room has been arranged for the accommodation of delegates and visiting Past Grands. The American flag was conspicuously displayed at either end of the large hall, pictures illustrative of the grand objects of Odd Fellowship decorated the walls, while the plain and rather conservative looking flag of the Grand Lodge hung from the front of the desk, behind which was to sit the presiding officer. THE OPENING. At about 15 minutes past 9 o'clock, the Grand Master said: I am informed by the Committee of Ar rangements that it is contemplated on their part to have a formal reception of the body in this place. His Excellency, the Governor, will welcome the body on the part of the State ; the Mayor of this city On the part of the citizens of Harrisburg, and Grand Representative Lamberton on the part of Lodges. Therefore, until that reception is over, I have not thought it advisable to call the Grand Lodge formally to order, so that all in attendance may have an opportunity of remaining in the room. To the address ot welcome, on my own part, 1 will not trust myseli to reply. J. here are many of ns aawinected with the associa tion assembled here to - day that I know will be glad to hear the response from another. I therefore respectfully request Past Grand Sire Nicholson to help me and the Order out on this occasion, as he has done heretofore, and at the proper time will call upon him to do so. I would respectfully inform the committee of arrangements that we are now ready to receive any proposition they may have to make. INTRODUCTION OF GOVERNOR GEARY. The Committee of Arrangemeats then appeared, accompanying His Excellency Gov ernor Geary and His Honor Mayor W. W. Hays, who were introduced on the part of the committee by JtC. A. Lamberton, liight Woiihy Grand Representative of the Grand Lodge of the United States. On introducing the Governor, Mr. Lamberton said : Most Worthy Grand Master, I have the honor to present to you and to the members of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania His Excellency John W. Geary, the Governor of this Commonwealth. The Most Worthy Grand Master received His Excellency in the following words : Governor Geary, I have great pleasure, sir, in welcoming you to this body. .1 have un derstood that you are about welcoming the society ot Odd Fellows here to the state Capital, and cordially invito you to the chair ot the Grand master. The Governor was escorted to the Grand Master's chair (the Grand Lodge receiving him by rising to their feet), when he spoke as follows : ADDRESS OF GOVERNOR GEARY. Most Worthy Grand Grand Master, and Gentlemen of the Grand Lodge of Odd Fel Iowb : I am exceedingly happy to exchange fraternal ereetines with you this morning, and to give assurances that I am not insensible of the high honor you have seen proper to confer upon me by inviting my presence amoncst vou on this august and highly inter esting occasion. I should indeed be cold and uncongenial if I did not, as I now do, return vou mv most sincere ana neartteit t nanus. This is, I am informed, the first time the Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows has met in the city of Hauieburg. Appreciating this event for rayself, as one whose heart is warmed with devotion for, and whose mind is deeply impressed with, the truth and value of the eternal principles and teachings of the Order, as a citizen, and as a magistrate, it affords me no ordinary pleasure to tender to you, in my own name, and in tne name and behalt ot my fellow citizens, a cordial and hearty welcome to the capuil or Pennsylvania. I might here, perhaps, with propriety, retire and no longer detain you from your official deliberations, but I feel that I cannot do so without first expressing my gratifica tion, and extending to you my sincere con gratulations at the present prosperous condi tion of the order throughout the length and breadth of this great country, in Pennsylva nia alone, where the order is most prosper ous, there are now, 1 am informed, live hun dred and fifty lodges in successful operation, containing a membership of about seventy thousand persons, ihua, in this country, from a single germ, in half a century, Odd Fellowship has grown and expanded to its present huge proportions, notwithstanding the many severe trials and ordeals it has had to encounter from " enemies within and enemies without." Everywhere its borders are en larged and its stakes strengthened. Judging lrom the past buy years in which it has so steadily and so strongly advanced, we may well inquire what will be its numbers, its strength and its influence, when it will cele brate its centennial anniversary? There is scarcely a doubt but that it will be commen surate with our national growth, and if so, its members will be almost as countless as the sands of the sea. The general beneficent influences of the principles of the order and its distinguishing feature of constant and never failing distribu tion ot benevolence will, 1 trust, with the blessing of Divine Providence, forever pre serve it fs a jewel, characteristic of charity, "bright as the sun, fair as the moon and powerful as an army with banners." Ap - plause.J INTRODUCTION OF MAYOR BAYS. Grand itepresentative Lamberton again stepped lorward. and on behalt ol the com mittee of arrangements introduced His Honor the Mayor, in the following words : Most Worthy Grand Master and Brethren of the Grand Lodge, I take great pleasure in introducing to you the young and accom plished Mayor of Harrisburg. Applause. ADDRESS Ol1 THE MAYOR. Mayor Hays stepped forward, and spoke as toiiows: Most Worthy Grand Master and members of the Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows of the State of Pennsylvania, as the representatives of a fraternity which has so well and firmly established its ennobling piinciples in the hearts and minds of noble and true men thoughout this and other lands, I tender to you the hospitalities of the capital city of this noble old Commonwealth. The community, in whose name and be half I now welcome you, have reason to chensh warm feelings towards the associa tion to which ycu belong, in recognition of the good work among us by its membership in our midst. I am proud to say that here the effects of Odd Fellowship have been well and beau til ally set forth : that the adminis trations of Love and Charity have won the admiration of our entire people ; and it is with pleasure that I here to - day, hail the Grand Lodge of Odd FellowB of Pennsylva nia. Permit me, gentlemen, to express the wish that your deliberations may tend to promote and extend the growth and prosperity of the brotherhood ; that your Btay may be pleasant and agreeable, and that you may continue to grow and spread in this great and noble work tor alleviating the sufferings ana increasing the love of mankiad. Applause. ADDRESS OF R. A. LAMBERTON, ESQ. On behalf of the Odd Fellows of Harris burg and vicinity, Grand Representative Lamberton delivered the following address of welcome: Most worthy urana Master, ana my Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Pennsyl vania: ihe Governor ot our commonwealth has extended to you his cordial welcome to her Capital. Our Mayor has added his pleasant greeting ; and it now remains for one in behalf of a thousand of your brethren to give you their heaity welcome to our beautiful city. 1 bear the expression ot their loyalty and respect to you, the legislative and judicial head of the Order in Pennsylvania. We greet you as the elect of four brethren, the chosen representatives or seventy thousand earnest men who, in evei city and town, and almost in every valley, from the Delaware to Lake Eiie, are the active members of our brotherhood. Our welcome is for all ; for those who, for the first time, appear in this Grand Lodge ; tor those to whom years have given experience in its legislation, and most heartily for those who are our veteranB, whose names for many years have been as household words in the Lodges. When you bo kindly accepted the invita tion to hold the annual session of 18C9 in this city, there was one then present to whom it would have given us great pleasure to extend bur most fraternal greetings. Since that time a grievous blow fell upon our Order. The Grand Secretary, who for more than a quarter of a century had been so wise in council, so efficient in action, so ready and helpful always in advancing the prosperity of our affiliation, has been gathered to his fathers. The place which knew him so lang and well, shall know him no more, tor ever. We have missed him sorely, we miss him to - day. lint what shall be said ot the power ot that Order whose progress was almost unhindered by the loss of one so notable. Our great army of Peace, as it heard the solemn fall of the "ashes to ashes, dust to dust, passed mth Dowea neaa ana throbbing heart to drop the I tearot gnet Deeide the grave ot our departed Brother, and once more it resumed its majes tic tread, scattering blessings far and wide among men. My .brethren, to our hearty welcome we add our hearty wishes that the very spirit of wisdom and harmony may brood over your deliberations, that your labors here may end happily, that yon may be taken in safety to your respective homes, and that at last when your work on earth is ended, you may have the approving "well done" of the Great Master ot all, and hear his glad summons "come up higher." Applause. ADDRESS OF JAMES B. NICHOLSON. In reply to the addresses of welcome Right Worthy Grand Secretary James B. Nicholson, on behalf of the Grand Lodge, said : To you, your Excellency, it is, sir, with feelings of no ordinaiy kind that I erise to speak in behalf of the Grand Lodge of Penn sylvania upon this interesting occasion. I cannot, sir, help for a moment to retrace the history of the past. Amidst our feelings of natural piide and joy that this occasion inspires as with, we cannot but recall the time when another condition or attairs existed ; because, sir, there is in this a profitable lesson to all men who are working for good objects. Forty years ago, the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania met, but a few, unknown, obBcure men. It would have hardly been safe, sir, at that day for an individual to have presented himself within the Halls of our State Capitol and announced himself to be an Odd Fellow. Time has rolled on. The people, earnest, brave, courageous, hopeful and determined men, animated by the sublimity of the piinciple that they had espoused, turned their taces sternly against all opposition, and they have marched triumphantly onward, gathering with them lrom time to time those UKe - minded as themselves, until to - day, we gather here with pride and reioicing, welcomed, sir. by you as the Chief Magistrate . of the good old Keystone State honored by the Mayor of this city and to hear words of comfort, good cheer and consolation worn the distinguished representative of Harrisburg. sir, to this, then, we may well point to all who are laboilng in a good cause. As we look aroundto day, andour eyes pass over brethren here assembled, we witness the representatives of men of all parties and of all faiths that are known among our citizens. They gather here to day, as a proud brotherhood; not tor the puipose of disseminating any peculiar tenet not for the purpose of drawing any line of demarkation between the citizens of this Commonwealth, but are actuated by the grandand sublimest of objects that all men can gather together for for tne purpose of union; tor the purpose ot binding still more strongly together a great brotherhood, scattered throughout this broad Commonwealth. sir, you may well point with pride to the vp nous Jinks ot communication whereby your citizens are brought nrsrer and conn' 2t - ca one With another to the iron horse that travels with a hot unwrnying breath over all the mountain tops and biidges that span the streams of this Commonwealth. But here we have illustrated a power more mighty than strain, mightier than electricity, spread all over a fraternity that brings together men of the east, of tne west, of tne nort and of the south, and connects them with each other bungs them here united r one man ac tuated by one grind, higqiy ; purpose I the CARRYING OCT OF THE GRAND OBJECT OF LOVE and HUMANiir. Applause. I Sir, you have been pleased to speak in a spirit of commendation of the present condi tion ot the order in this state, of in matenal progress, of its large membership, and of the number of Lodges that are scattered through the valleys of t ae St'ite. Sir, there are other objects on which we feel we may also speak, During the pastyrar, sir (we speak this not in a boasting spiiit not as desirous to commend ourselves, for we recognize in this receotion, notwithstanding the flattering words ot commendation that have been used by our wouhy brother lrom Hairisburg in" addressing the representatives here, that behind all this is represented the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania here to day. There is something that dwindles these individuals into nothingness and insignificance. It is, sir, the grand piinciple that they are gathered together to suppoi l ; it is the mighty element that has nuea them up and ,.ed our Order up to its present proud position. ' In behalf of those pnnciples that underlie our organization we feel that we are light in the sight of God and man in speaking thereof. .During the imt year. sir. there has been disbursed, in this State alone, to the suffering and distressed, by Odd Fellows, for the relief of the widows and orohans of our brethren, the sum of two hundred and twenty - five thousand dollars. What angel's book can tell the misfortunes that have been alleviated ? How many tears have been wiped away? It is an angel's book only that can declare it. We can only represent the cold figures to some, but in how many homes have their prayers gone up and thanks been given to the Great Giver of all good, that he has infused into the hearts of our brotherhood the benign principles of charity and love, which shall continue to bless them here on eatth. Sir. we misrht speak more of the obiects of the order we might speak of the past, for, sir, our thoughts tend to dwell there. Whilst we speak of that it is but a momentary reflection over things that are past of the trials, difficulties and battles in which we have been engaged. Our thoughts, sir, to - day come up with recollections of the past tending to bind the faith of Odd Fellowship in this great old Commonwealth. We, as Pennsylvanians, feel that Pennsylvania is not only the Keystone of our Union, but that it is the Keystone of the grand arch of Odd Fellowship of the United States. We come here, sir, to legislate for its advancement ; to plant still deeper these principles, by which temporary humanity will be reared; in which we trust will be gathered not merely 70,OCO men to - day, but tens and hundreds of thousands, until at the time will come, as we foHdly hope and hast, when Pennsylvania Odd Fellowship shall stand as a beacon - light to all under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the United Stat: 3, aid when we, as a whole, shall spread eveiywhere, end the great cry be "Victory! Victory 1 For Odd Fellowship hci encircled the globe." Long confined applause. Arece3 was then taken, to peimit all who desired to make the acquaintance of the Governor and Mayor. The Grand Lodge was then regularly opened for business. The Grand Master appointed on the com' mittee on credentials, to fill vacancies, Past Grands Isaac A. bheppard, John Levengood, and Matthias Horner; no member of that committee being present. The Grand Master tien appointed as officers I to count the election returns, .Tnd0ft Ph. Lowrv. Jr.. of No. 572. Inspectors T. G. Morris, of No. 258, J. L. Levengood, of No. Clerks Wm. Kinsey, of No. 87, Absalom Tavlor of No. 144. One hundred and thirty - four Past Grands were then admitted to membership. The Grand Lodge resolved that after the first day, the sessions should be from 9 A. m. to 12 f. m., and from 2 to 6 p. m., except on Wednesday, when no night session should be had. A report from a committee appointed at the last annual session to divide tne county of Allegheny into two or more disricte, sub mitted a report, in which they proposed to divide that county into fonr distiicts. Their recommendation was adopted and Allegheny countv will hereafter be in four districts. A report of the committee, to whom had been referred a cnarge maae at tne last annual session, by Susquehanna Lodge, No. 80, asainst Hamilton Lodge, No. 596, for initiat ing a party living in Lancaster county, made a report adverse to jno. au, ana recommending that the cfsc be dismissed. In the ab sence of the representatives of both Lodges, the report was lstid on the table for the present. A charter was granted for a lodge to be called Americus Lodge, Sio. , to be located at Mai ion, Indiana county. Also for one at Tidioute, Warren county, to be called Eden Lodge, No. . - On the ainlicaticn of a number of the original members the charter of Peace and Plenty Lodge, No. oy, at Gaston, was restor ed. This Lodge was the parent of all the Lodges in Northampton county, and, indeed, of all that section of country. The Lodge was dissolved some seventeen years ago. It is now revived under the most favorable auspices; The charter of Stoystown Lodge, No. 372, at Stovstown, Somerset countv, was on a similar application restored, it also starts with every prospect of future success. It was stated in the application that the Lodge was compelled to dissolve during the war. because of nearly all of its members having joined the army. On motion of Representative Stolzer, it was resolved that the reports of the Commit tee on Orphans' Asylum be made the special order for Wednesday afternoon, at two o'cloclc. J. F. Temple Lodge applied for permission to change their meetings from semi - monthly to weeklv. statins that thev had tried the semi monthly meetings for two years, and did not find it advantageous. The permission was granted. The Grand Lodge then took a recess until halt - past three o'clock. Bij Sefegraplj. From Chicago. Special to the Telegraph by Pacific and Atlantic Lanes. J Chicago, May 18. Resolutions were last night introduced in the Chicago common council proposing to test the constitutionality of the law passed last winter by the General Assembly ot Illi nois conveying the Lake Front to the Illinois Uentral, Michigan Uentral and Chicago, liur - linerton and Quincv railroads. 'a he Methodist clergymen of this city met yesterday and passed resolutions, strongly petitioning against the ceremony of decorating the soldiers' graves being performed on the sabbath day. Maior General Hancock and staff arrived at St. Paul, Minnesota, to - day, to take command ot the .Department ot Dacotah, with head quarters at St. Paul.
