The dedication of the new - and mag.
nficent Masonic Temple in Charleston,

The 100th Anniversary.
The Centennial Commission for the
purpose.of making preparations for the
celebration of the 100th Anniversary of
American Independence in 1876, is now in
session at .the city of Philadelphia.
Judge Orr it is remembered is one of the
Commissioners for this State. The plan
proposed to carry out the gigantic scheme
on as magnificent scale as possible is to
sell stock in the exhibition to the amount
of over a million of dollars, among
the different States.
Fire and Los of Life.
The Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York,
caught fire in the laundry, on the night
of the eleventh, and twenty-two of the
employees in that department were
burned or suff4cated to death, in conse
quence of there being no egress except
by the stairs, which were on fire. It is
supposed that some died while asleep.
The loss is estimated at about $100,000
in damage to the furniture. Of the five
hundred guests none were injured,though
the fright is said to have been great.
About eighty servants escaped.

blood was spilt. Blood will tell, as evi

of which it is shown that Mr. Patterson,

The Arrest of John y. Patterson
The result of the election for Senator
on Tuesday last brought to light th-t hu
miliating fiact, that the Senator elect had
resorted to the base use of bribery. Af
fidavits to that effect were made before
a Trial Justice, upon which Mr. Patter
son was arrested, and tubsequently
lodged in jail for contempt of Court,
but in a short time thereafter was re
leased by order of Judge Mackey.
Again being brought before trial
justice Kirk, other affidavits were
made by a number of the virtuous
members, showing that bribes in vari
ously large and small amounts had been
given. On one charge Mr. Patterson
has entered his personal recognizaxce in
the sum of $500. In another, sureties
were requiretl and given in the sum of
$5,000. In auother, the same sureties
stood for him for $10,000. Mr. Worth
ington, (our readers remember this oily
gentleman,) as an ally of Patterson in
this wholesale and disgraceful system of
bribery, was required to give bond in
two sums, viz: $5,000 each. And this
is one of the steps toward the reform
which the people were assured would
follow the seating of the Legislative
body. Honest John is declared to be
the Senator, however, for the term of

It was determined to hold the next
neeting of the Grand Lodge in Charleston.
The temple consists of the grand lodge and
lue lodge rooms, with ante and preparation
ooms. The interior design is graceful.
he walls are in imitation of grained free
ntone. The grand lodge room is in the form
if a parallelogram, with an elegant arched
:eiling. The blue lodge room is smaller and
s a square. The ceiling forms a dome, with
tskylight. Fears are entertained that the
tcoustic arrangements of the ball are not
;ood; this may possibly be aggravated by
he location of the building-being at the
orner of two prominent thoroughfares.
The exterior character of the building is the
udor Gothic, though not strictly followed.
lu the building is not yet completed. When!
e central clusters of fluted columns are
rmounted and other cnntemplated designs
re finished, the building will prove an ele
;nt ornament to the city.

The Last Sad Rites.
On Friday last. the mortal remains of our
niurdered frierd, and esteemed fellow-citi
zen, John J. Barre, mere brought to his
loved h ro, from n hene he had beeir un
wisely banihed, to meet a death, terrible
in the enormity of the eiime which laid him
low, in a stranger land, lar av.iy from his
loved fainily and el.erished assoiates.
Death under ordinary, natural circum
stances, is sad and heartrending enough,
but when it cotn.!s suddenly, by violence,
by the hand ot tihe cruel, ;loodtiirst- as
sassin, time hiart is ci u.,hed, overwhelmed,
in its great ard migl.y grief. Painfully
sad was the scene enac:ed at the portal of
the house, (which otiy a few mouths ago
he had left in the full strength of young
and promis:ng manhood,) and which now
opened to receive the slaughtered, pulseless
form, as father, mother, sisters, brothers
and friends dropped their tears upon the
casket. It was a scene calculated to touch
the heart of the most insensible, and not
one there present but felt the sympathy
which could not be expressed.
On Saturday, at two o'clock, the time ap
pointed for the last sad rites, the diffetent
organizations of which the deceased was a
member, viz : the Odd Fellows and Sons of
Temperance, formed in procession, and
marched to the house, where were gathered
family and friends, from whence the body
was borne by bearers from both Societies to
the Lutheran Church, to the solemn tolling
of the bell, and deposited in the altar. The
funeral services by the Rev. Henry Wing
ard, assisted by the Rev. John Stout, of
the Baptist Church, together with the sweet
tones of the choir's music, were impressive
ly touching. After which, preceded by the
Societies nained, and f7>liowed by an un
usually large number of friends, the body
was conveyed to its last resting place in
Rosemont Cemetery. Here the Odd Fel
lows concluded the sad rites, and consigned
the remains of their esteemed brother to,its
mother earth, where, free of all of life's
troubles, it nill lie till siimoned by the
Archangel's trump to an immortal life.
We mourn the death of our triend, the
untimely, cruel death, in common with the
entire community, and-fain would we ren
der a fitting tribute to one so greatly es
teemed for his imiany nianly virtues and ex
cellencies of claracter, to one who suffered
so much, to one so brave, so true, so gene
rous, so kind, but no .sound of praise can
reach the closed ears lying coldly, silently
itn the tomb. Vain is all earthly praise to
him. His friends knew him, and none knew
him but to love, none named him but to
praise, green be the turf above hint. He is
a t peace !

When the cold hand of Death is laid upon the
aged, arnd we see the venerable head whitened by
the snows of three score yea:s and ten, carried to
the silent tomb, we drop the tear of sad regret

Love, shoots his arrows from many colgns of
vantage, but it is doubtful if he delivers his
heart-taking shafts from any ambush with
more effect than when he arms them from
the braids and folds and ringlets of a superb
head of hair. Ladies who have not been
favored by Nature with this crowning charm
of womanhood. can readily and certainly in
crease the volume of their hair and impart
to it a silken lustre by using LyoN's KATRA

Providence has blessed with a superabundance
of this "Glory" of the sex, can preserve it,
undiminished, in quantity and undiminished
in beauty to the latest period of life. There
is a germinatingprincip!e in the KATHAIRON
