acknowledgments for their unanimty in re tura
iog bim to the House of Commons, he proceed?
ed to review and justify the action of the Con?
servative party on the Reform question. He then
defended the government from the charge of
extravagance. The expenditures were large, but
the government could not be conducted
cheaply; and he maintained that the finan?
cial management of the ministry had been
in??overy sense economical. He advocated the
extension of education, and favored the crea?
tion of a department of public instruction,
with a Cabinet minister at its head. He insis?
ted, however, that neither a compulsory edu?
cational system nor the imposition of a new tax
for educational purposes were in accordance
with tl.e opinion of the country. He then con?
trasted the foreign policy of the preceding
year with that of the presont ministry. He
said the relations which now exist with
loreign powers are those of confidence
and sympathy, and all the disagree?
ments with the United States are now re?
moved. He concluded with a discussion of tho
Irish question. The resolutions for a dises?
tablishment of the Irish Church, introduced
by the leader of the opposition, could not miti?
gate the evils of Fenianism. The troubles Of
Ireland were greatly exaggerated. Ireland had
really progressed within the last twenty years
more than England.. The proposed dis estab?
lishment was dangerous to the rights of \ rop
erty. It would only serve to increase the dis?
content of the Irish people, while at the same
time it would be sure to sever the connection
between the State and religious principles.

Address of Past Master C. E. Chichester.
On Saturday afternoon, an extra communi?
cation of Pyihagorian Lodg?, No. 21, was held
at Masonic Kail, at 5 P. M., in order to take
leave of tboir Worshipful Master, C. E. Chi?
chester, who leaves Charleston this afternoon,
to enter into business in St. Louis. Tbe
Lodge room was crowded with the members of
this Lodge, and also of Delta Lodge of Per?
fection of tho Ancient Scottish Rite, of which
Brother Chichester was also Master, and
which thus united with Pythagorean Lodge in
a farewell meeting. A large number of visit?
ing brethren were present, among whom we
noticed Brother P. G. M. Henry Buist ; R. S.
Bruns, Grand Secretary ; Brother Paddon, W.
M. Tyre Lodge; Brother A. T. Smythe, W.
M. Strict Observance Lodge; Brother Styles, P.
M. Franklin Lodge; Brother Bartlett, P.M.
Pythagorean Lodge; Brother Levin, W. M.
Friendship Lodge, and many others.
The Lodge having been duly opened, Brother
Chichester arose and said :
My Beloved Brethren-1 have called to?
gether this Lodge in extra communication this
evening for the purpose of saying to you but
one word; a word easily pronounced and often
uttered by us all, but which I find to be the
most difficult word to utter, upon this occa?
sion, in the entire vocabulary of tho English
language. That word ia, "farewell." In tho
providence of the Almighty Ruler of Ibo Uni?
verse, circumstances beyond my control com?
pel me to leave this our beloved City by the
Sea, and seek another home among strangers
a stranger in a Btrange land. This parting
from this Lodge is to me an unusually sad and
sorrowful one. Within this Lodge I received
my new biri h into Masonry; in this Lodge 1
beheld my first Masonic light; in this Lodge
I have enjoyed sweet communion with you all,
have shared your joys and your sorrows, have
labored with you in its upbuilding to its pre?
sent enviable position, and in this Lodge I
have received all the honors it ?vas in your
power to boBtow upon me, e-.cn to tho distin?
guished honor and pleasure of presiding over
its eh bera tiona, during the past Masonic year,
as its Worshipful Master. I had looked for?
ward in the f atoro to many years of iiappy and
pleasant intercourse among you, and had
hoped Ion? to labor in tho interests of this
our beloved Lodge-but all my bright antici?
pations are destined to be unfulfilled.
In parting from yon, my beloved brethren, at
this time, so much do I feel tho separation,
I and so deeply are tho innermost recesses of my
? heart stirred, that I cannot find words to ex?
press myself, and my fooling completely over
po * ors me. I would you "could see into my
soul, you would find it torn, and lacerated, an i
bleeding with anguish. You would find such
deep emotion as can only find relief in tears,
unmanly though they may seem, and, I feel
assured, that if I wore to give way to the feel?
ings which now crowd my breast, you would
blush for the unmanliness of your Master.
It has beon my privilege to form many dear
and intimate associations in Charleston, from
whom 1 find it moat difficult to part, yet the
separation from all of them combined is as
nothing compared with the pong I teel in se?
parating from yon. I have comrades in this
community who shared with mo many perils,
and you who have stood shoulder to shoul?
der tn hours of imminent danger, with death
on all Bides, know what a strong feeling of
attachment bound you to thc comrades who
shared tbe dangers with you, and how you
have felt that gladly would you sacrifice
your own life could it but sparc your
comrade. From all these I can part.
Other associates and friends I have in the
bnsinsss marts and in tho social circle, from
whom I can also part; but from the Brother?
hood of this, our cherished Lodge, I feel as
though I could not separate. And yet it must
be so. Tho word must be spoken, the hand
must be grasped tor the last time, and I must
tear myself away from you all, probably never
to look into your faces again-never moro to
enjoy sweet communion with you. Our courses
in life must hereafter widely divorgo, and
while you Btill continue from month to month
to meet together and enjoy each other's society,
I shall be far away iu my Western home.
Let me make of you, my dear brethren of
Pythagorean Lodge, but one request, and I
sholl feel somewhat reconciled to my lot. Bo
not forget me. Rest assured that tho oaunte
nauce of every individual member of this
Lodge is indellibly and mcffacoably engraved on
my heart, and often shall 1 dwell with fond re?
membrance upon the many happy hours wo
have hero enjoyed. And ob, how pleasant it
will be to havo the assurance that you, mv
brethren, aro sometimes thinking of me. Io
feol that my name is moiitioued among you
when you meet togethor.
I would that I could convey to you thc lovo
and affection I feel towards "you, "and DCUOVC
me when I say that it is dooper and more ardont
than that to many of my own kindred. Thc pecu?
liar circumstances ol'past years have alienated
from mo those of my o wu flesh and blood, but
their places have been filled by you, my Ma?
sonic brtttiren, and I could at tnis mooioiit
part with tm ni far easier than I can with you,
?tions; and unnatural as thc assertion inay
This parting from you, ead as it is, serves,
however, to show forth most beautifully and
emphatically, tho beauties of our blessed
Order. Where is there another human organ?
ization that can bind man to man and broti>?r
to brother like Masonry ? How often have \
heard the invocation : "Let brot' _.iy love pre
va?, and every moral and social virtue cement
us." And, truly, here brotherly love has pre?
vailed, and here virtue has cemented us.
And now, my beloved brethren of Pythago?
rean Lodge, lot me. m parting with you, urge
?ou to rene wed zeal and ardor in tho cause of
[asonry. Do not weary in well-doing. Per?
form punctually and promptly'every duty which
may devolve upon Vou. But above all, ever
practice Charily. To relieve the distrossod,
and to aid the widow and fatherless, should bo
your constant end and aim. I shall watcn this
Lodge from my distant home with a jealous
eye, and my best wishes will ever attend its
To you, my brethren of Delta Lodge, of tho
A.*. A.*. S.\ it.-, permit me also to express my
warmest wishes. Labor on vigorously and
untiringly in your efforts to buila up Scottish
Site Masonry in this city. The noble lessons
which it inculcates, and the beautiful ceremo?
nies connected with it, should aud must ere
long commend themselves to tho attention of
every Mason who lovos Masonry for itself aud
who aspires to become a perfect Mason. Bo
not discouraged by the seeming difficulties
which environ you, but press on, labor on and
ou will succeed. And lot mc here remind the
retbrcn assembled, that Scottish Kites Ma?
sonry is in no way antagonistic to Masonry of
of tho York Rito. They are ono and "tho
same ; they go hand in hand together,
aud uhould always BO exist. In parting
with you, I am separating from many
whom I* love and esteem; many who havo labor?
ed with mo iu esta dishing Scottish Rite
Masonry in our midst; many who have faith?
fully held up my hands and aided mo by their
presence and advice. My interest iu tho wel?
fare of your Lodge is vory great, and I shall
look with deop anxiety upon youi labors, aud
wish you every success. Often shall I look
back upon tho many hours wo have spent to?
gether, and long for an opportunity to again
unite with you in tue ceremonies of tho Rite.
To you, visiting brethren of sister Lodges,
who have so kindly favored us with your pre?
sence this evening, permit me to express my
thanks fur the luterest you have mauifested in
my behalt by your presence hero this evening,
and allow me, iu parting, to urge you to labor
mere energetically and untiringly in the future,
in yent various Lodges, than you have ever
done in tho past, and let yonr constant end i
aim be to build up and strengthen tho Orde:
thia city, until it spreads its divine ogia o
all worthy persons.
And finally, brethren of Pythagorean Lod
to you I turn again and address you my 1
parting words. May tho Grand Architect
tho Universe keep you always under his soe;
care; may you constantly increase in Fai
Hope and* Charity, but more especially in tl
charity, which is "the bond or peace; and n
you always eo Uve and so act as to prepare j
for an entrance into that dwelling not mi
with hands, eternal in the heavens.
I can only say to ytu |as my parting wor
in the language of that illustrious brotl
Mason, Scotia's bard :

It was then moved that Brother Glichest
vacate the chair, and that Brother P. G. V
Henry Buist be called to preside, which beir
carried, Brother Buist took the chair, who
Brother F. Horsey, S. W., arose, and after
few pertinent remarks, introduced the follov
ing preamble and resolutions :

Brother Froneberger, P. M. of the Lodgo
seconded tho resolutions and spoke with feel?
ing and earnestness of tho able and zoaloui
manner in which brother Chichester bad per
formed bis duties as Master, and the hrs thi
Lodgo would sustain in his departure.
The resolutions wore then unanimously
adopted and ordered to bo spread on the

The committee hoing then in readiness to

that the duty which hal bntn assignod them
by the Lodgo was to express tho deot of grati?
tude they felt to Brother Chichester for tho
diligent and faithful performance of the ardu?
ous duties of his position during tho past year.
That to bim they were indobted for much,
very much of their presont prosperity, and that
tho Lodge was unwilling that ho should enter a
foreign jurisdiction without boaring upon his
person some mark of their lovo and esteem.
In the namo of tho Lodge ho then presented

and begging Brother Chichet-ler to wear it as

pressing tho regret of tho Lodge at his depar?

Brother Levin thon said :
Thria Puissant Brother Chichester-Tho
fratifying duty has boon assigned me, by your
rcthrcn of Della Lodge of Perfection, No. 1.
to present you with a memorial of their regard
and esteem, and I am about to discharge that
duty with mingled emotions of pleasure aud
It is a sourco of much pleasure to mo to bo
ptrmittcd to stand iu this prosenco, and tender
to you, in behalf of my brethren ol' Delta Lodgo,
tho earnest and sincere assurances of thoir
high appreciation of tho sciviccs that you
have rendered them, and it is proper that I
should refer to tho.-.o services.
The "Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite,"
fir.-t established in this city in tho year 17(52,
had, by a combination of untoward circum?
stance's, fallen into decay; its temple was tu
ruins, its altars nero demolished, its vestal
fires extinguished, and its beautiful and im?
pressive ritual had beconi" a dead language,
unknown, except to a privileged few who had
received tho highest degrees. With an ardor
and zeal only oxceedrd by your intelligence and
virtue, you became tho chief builder in rocun
stiucting that temple, in rebuilding its altars,
and rekiudiing its sacred lires. It lias boen re?
built, sir, bv the conception of your wisdom,
maintained by the s'.reugtk nf your zeal and en?
ergy, aud gracefully adorned "by the beauty of
your teachings. You have impressed upon our
minds the great importance of cultivating the
heart's best affections, and improving and per?
fecting them for all the great duties of life, so
that we may become bright, intelligent and
worthy exemplars in the great cause of human
progress and civilization. Is it necessary for
me to state why this joyous occasion
is marred by emotions of sorrow, pain and
rjgret? Look around you, sir, and you will be?
hold the countenances of your brethren sad
and sorrowful. The3e silent and touching in?
dications speak more eloquently than can
words from my lips, for they tell you that we
have assembled to bid you an affectionate fare?
well, and toi wish you u God-speed on your
journey. The severance of thc tie of ordinary
friendship is painful onough, but when the
sacred bond of brotherhood ts broken, around
which cluster the hierher, purer and holier
sympathies ol our nature, the pane: of sepa?
ration is more intense, the feeling of sorrow
more poignant. I will not dwell longer upon
this sad thorne, but turn to the more pleasant
task if begging your acceptance of this slight
but sincere testimonial of the love and e. cern,
the regard and friendship of your brethren of
When you shall have roached your future
distant home on the banks of tho "Father of
Wateie," this simple memorial will speak to
you in voiceless but eloquent tones. It will rt- .
mind you that your biothrenof the "City by
the Sou" (of whom this cane is a significant
omblcni, bemg the heart of the palmetto), will
ever cherish these feelings for you in their
"heart of hearts," and that time cannot efface
nor absence diminish them.
Allow me, sir, ia conclusion to offer, in your
behalf, that great blossiug which tho High
Priest of tho Temple invoked for his people. I
feel assured that my brethren of York and
Scottish Rites will cordially, sarncstly and sin?
cerely unite with mo in this sacred invocation.
Brother Levin then closed his remarks by re?
peating thia blessing in Hebrew and English
in au impressive manner.
Brother Chichester in reply, in a few flt re?
marks promised them that this staff should bc
hiB support through life, and should ever be
considered by him as a proof of the practical
efficacy of the beautiful tenets ol tho order.
Brother Bruns, (Jrand H. P. of South Caro?
lina, then arose and in tho namo, and as the
representative of Royal Aroh llasonry tendered
him tho regrets of that Misonry at his de?
parture, and their well wishes for his welfare,
whilo, at the same time, they could not but
deeply deplore the loss his departure would in?
flict upon their order.
Brother A. T. Smythe than as tho repre?
sentative of the Masters aird Masons of tne

The Lodge was then closed in due form and

Mr. Washburn, the American Minister at
Buenos Ayres, has got his deserts, and his
degradation is complete. Benitzo, who, a3
Minister of Foreign Affairs for Lopez conduct?
ed tho correspondence with Mr. Washburn,
has himself been arrested as a traitor, and
Senor Carminos is appointed to his office. This
gentleman, acting upon the old maxim that a
new broom sweops clean, has given Mr. Wash?
burn a taste of his quality in a long-winded
and very "high and mighty" letter.
He accuses bim of complicity with the ene?
mies of his government and the "hoiy national
cause," and hints that if Lopez visited the
American Minister with the pumshment he
deserved, he also would be sont to prison in
iron9, and put to the rack. But he adds, with
the most condescending magnanimity, "My
government, ever solicitous to give unequivo?
cal proofs of its high consideration and esteem
for the great American Repuolic, limits itself
to sending you your passports, and requesting
von to loavo tho country." He thou tells Mr.
Washburn that a steamer will be at his dis?
posal any hour he ploasos, "after to-morrow,"
to c im y him on board the gunboat Wasp. He
udds as a s.>rt of postscript, that he cannot give
passports to B<iss ami Masterman, but that
"thev must abide by tho decrees of justice."
Mr. Bliss writes to tho Rev. Mr. Goodfellow
from A-uncion, September 7, a lotter, in which

That Mr. Washburn should pocket the in?

The Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more Gazette writes :
The new Radical programme, put forth as
one of conciliation, now that they have full
power, is, in some of its details, difficult
of comprehension, but in others plain enough.
The proposition, for example, to inflict upon
the wholo country, by another patch upon the
constitution, tho undoubted evil of negro suf?
frage, ?B purely and solelv designed to negroize
Maryland, Kentucky and?)elawaro-Missouri is
already shackled by proscriptions of whites. It
bas, nevertheless, been so ingeniously insinu?
ated to tho public, that it has been "nude to
assume thc shape of a measure of concession
to the South-a salad to its wounded honor?
ait extravagant reliance being placed upon thc
potency of the aphorism that " misery likes
company." It need not be added that the
nec.ro vote in the States which would be affect?
ed by such an amendment, other than those
named, is altogether insignificant politically,
and would long since havo been accorded, but
for a real personal prejudico, tho existence of
which has boen falsely charged upon tho South.
I had an interesting conversation this morn?
ing with a gentleman high in thc Radical san?
hedrim, upon the whole subject of the consti?
tution in its respect to parties and tho condi?
tion of tho country, its amendments already
adopted, undoubtedly, those doubtfully adopt?
ed, and others proposed, whon be startlingly
remarked as follows:
"Why should we not call a National Consti?
tutional Convention at once and tramo a new
fundamental code to suit the allured condition
of things ? Wo of the Radical Bide aro well
aware th A wo can never convince the
controlling minds of the Democracy that
our past, present and prospectivo measures
are constitutional, and the bonost portion
of that party will never protend to be
lievo they are. The best, tho thinking men
of the country, aro thereby kept asuuder and
hindered trom devising a system having in
view solely tho essential good of-the nation.
The constitution, as things now stand, bas no
vitality in a Bingle article, section, paragraph
or clause applicable either to the Executive,
Les i bia ti ve or Judicial Departments of tho
government, and, probably, will not for many
years, if ever. The system of government
contemplated by it is effete, and the American
people who gavo the world the example of a
constitution on parchment, couched in plain
English words, now present fie singular
anomaly of living under a government
guided by no fundamental law whatever
written, or nnwritten-and, young as it is,
unable to appeal to tradition, but left at the
unbridled caprice of tho demagogues of the
hour.." "Two thinga," continued ho, "aro
much to bo deplored, tho ono is, that the
foolish flatteries of Grant by the Democratic
press have shorn the General of the little
weight he might othorwiso havo had with his
Radical friends, Wade, Wilson, Morton, S mi?
nor, Butler and Logan, whose co-operation
would be indispensable to bring about so
desirable a result; and the second is, that thu
continued ill health of General Rawlings pre?
vents him from actively engaging in the
mighty events looming up in the immediate
future. A Constitutional Convention is his
panacea for all existing evils."
At thia point, not being advised in regard to
the safety at thia juncturo of a "Constitutional
Convention,'' but rorcibly impressed willi some
of tho views presented. I inquirod as to the
status and calibje of General Rawlings, and
was answered that "few mon now living, of
dither part}-, equal him in comprehensive and
liberal statesmanship, and that no man enjoys
(io large a share ot Grant's confidence, lt "is
but justico to say that 1 havo heard in other
quarters this gentleman's intellect highly spo?
ken of, but as to his "liberality" tho public
have been "educated" to doubt, and require
stronger proof than has yet been afforded. His
influence with Congress-tho reigning power
is yet to be tested.
I have it from an intelligent Radical source
that tho catch-word at the coming session of
Congnss will bo "economy."
THU RE VOL VTION IN CUBA.
It is now more than a month sinco tho east?
ern provinces of Cuba have been disturbed by
revolutionary movements. All the available
Spanish troops have been concentrated thero, a
dozen engagements have been fought, and the
insurrection is still in full vigor. From a letter
published in tho "Messager Franco-Am?ri?
cain," wo learn that the seat of war is confined
to the mountainous part of tho island, east of
Puerto Principe, and that tho contest, from
being a guerilla affair, has becomo a war
conducted in truo military fashion. A provi?
sional government has been established at
Bayamo, at the head of which are Francisco
Aguilera and Carlos Coapodcs, tho first a rich
planter, and thc second a distinguished lawyer
of Bayamo. Though largo slaveholders, they
are both in favor of tho abolition of slavery.
Some twenty other persons of wealth and influ?
ence in Eastern Cuba are embarked in thc
Most of the insurgents have liberated their
slaves on tho condition that they shall aid in
securing tho independence of Cuba, and in all
the guerilla bands are to be found a certain pro?
portion of negroes, who light courageously by
tho sido of their former masters. In tho uiaui
gent ranks aro also several hundred veteran
Dominicans who havo grown gray in the civil
wars of that republic, aud, strange t o say. a
number of young creole and mulatto women,
who handle and fire their muskets like old sol?
diers. Some of these women, it is said, belong to
thc best society, and exercise a marked influence
upon their leaders ana fellow-soldiers. Tne
Provisional Junta proposes soon to send an
agent to Washington to demand of the United
States Government a recognition of their
rights aa belligerents, and will show that the
revolutionary army alroady numbers over
seven thousand men, and that the Spanish au?
thorities are utterly unable to make hoad
Several severe engagements have already
taken place, in .vhich a body of Spanish troops
under Colonel Quiros, and another commanded
by Colonel Louo. are reported to have been de?
cidedly worsted. Meanwhile, telegraphic com?
munication with Puerto Principe is cut off. It
is not known whether the revolutionary move?
ment projected in that city has been commenc?
ed, but there ia no doubt that several hundred
Cubans from the neighborhood have gone to
join the insurgente at Bayamo. Rumors are
rife of an attack upon Santiago de Cuba, to be
aide i by tho inhabitants of the place, iii view
of these grave complications, the Captain-Gen?
eral, Lersundi, has recalled General Bavcnet,
commanding in Eastern Cuba, and sent thither
General Munoz, who distinguished himself
dari og the invasion of tho island by Lopez in
1854. He ie expected to act witb promptness
and vigor, and has boen promised largo rein
forcements. This will leave but two or three
thousand Spanish troops in Western Cuba.
Tho result of the revolution will depend large?
ly upon tho Lttitttdo of the districts of Matan?
zas, Vuelta Abajo, Cordcuas and Havana.
Tho latest accounts from Havana dated on
the 12th state that the government troops
eleven thousand strong-wcro besieged m
Manzanillo by a hrgo force of msurgouts who
wero only three milos distant. The Spaniards,
meautime, were throwing up barricades in tho
streets for protection. Accounts from Santiago
report that a largo force of insurgents were
within four miles ot that place on thc Gth.
Great panic appears to li ve prevailed, for il is
said thal huudre is ol families had cleared out
foi Jamaica. The confusion is reported to bo
immenso all along thc coast, and a significant
cry for aid from tho United States was prevail?
ing everywhere. Some of tho wealthiest fam?
ilies iu tho island have linked their fortunes
with the causo of tho insurgents. All the
towns from Puerto Principe to Santiago ex?
cept three aro in tho hands of the insurgents.
So disastrous has boen the result of collisions
in the interior to the Spanish troops that they
are afraid to venture out of the towns. The
New York brier Jenny Clark, with arms and
ammunition, bad been seized at Naevitaa by
(he authorities, and a load of arms for the gov?
ernment troops, also from the United State3,
had been captured by tho insurgents.

?.IS SICKNESS AVOIDABLE?-THOU?
SANDS toss on tick bed* to-day, who might have been
well and hearty hod they token due precautions for the
pr?servation of th it most precious of earthly bless?
ings, a sound mind in a sonad body. Sickness, to a
greater exteut than most people suppose, ls avoid?
able. When thc body Is languid, tho spirits de?
pressed, and thc nervous system unnaturally sensi?
tive, lt should b? token for granted that misc jief is
brewing. These hints and warnings, vouchsafed as
such by a kind Providence, ought not to be disre?
garded. If tbev are slighted, as is too generally the
case, the next thing may be a fever, a severe bilious
attack, or some other form of acute disease They
indicate os clearly os if tho intimation wore given in
articulate longuaee, that the auiinal functions ore
disordered, aud the syntom debilitated. Under
these circumstances, the only thing to be done is to
regulate and restore, and tho best regulating and
restorative preparation ever used for the ticvention
of sickness is HOSTCTTEB'S STOMACH BITTEBS.
In this way, bilious remittent fever, chills and
fever, spasms, nervous paroxysms, violent attacks
of indigestion, and all the ordinary epidemics, may
almost certainly bo averted. They ara usually pre?
ceded by the symptoms described, and surely it ia
wisdom to forestall them b .? resorting to an antidote
at once harmless, agreeable aud invigorating. Most
assuredly, it w ll soon dissipate the unpleasant feel?
ings retened to; which, of course, is desirable, even
if they were net likely to lead to something worse.
The close of tho fall is usually accompanied by un?
healthy fogs and violent atmospheric changes, and
it is thc efore a season when invigoration is particu?
