Address or Worshipful blaster Jumes
!.. Orr,
Delivered before the Grand Lodge of
Ancient Tree Masons of South Carolina, in
the city of Charleston, on Tuesday oven
ing, November 20: j
BnETunr.N: 1 congratulate you upon as?
sembling in yifur Annual Communication
under auspices so favorable. Whilst, the
husbandman has gathered but a scanty
harvest from his toil during the year, anil
whilst tumult and confusion pervade the
political world, peace has brought to the
Masonic craft, in this State, renewed pros
nerity and tho means of a more extended
benevolence to alleviate human Buffering.
Let us, then, not forget to make our
profound acknowledgments to tho Grand
Architect of the Universe, for his manifold
and b?n?ficient blessings, and so govern
ourselves that the cynical will lind no good
cause of reproach against our ancient and
venerated institution. Let us mark the
history of free Masonry with good works,
and show how beautiful it is for brethren
"to dwell" in peaco and unity together.
Lotus minister with a generous charity to
tho wants of our suffering and afilicted
brethren-pour the balm of consolation in
th? heart, and relieve tho crushing poverty
which has overtaken their widows and
orphans. Tho field in which we aro called
to ?abor in this State, in ministering to
thu wants of those who have a moral and
Masonic right to call upon us for aid, is
broad and expansive-let it not be choked
ind blighted by tho neglected weeds of
parsimony or callous heartlessness.
With theso preliminary observations, I
beg leave respectfully to report to you tho
operations of this office.
Not being present at your last annual
communication in Columbia, you author?
ized my installation as Grand" Master bv
M. W. Brother B. Rush Campbell, Pae't
Grand Master, in any subordinate lodge,
and at as early a period as suited our con?
venience.
No convenient occasion arose, and after
waiting until the first Monday in February,
.iud finding that the accumulating buui
liuss required the qualification of the
Grand Master, I was pu that dav installed
by M. W. Brother A. T. C. Pierson, Past
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Min?
nesota, in Solomon's Lodge No 1, in this
city.
This ceremony was attended by brethren
representing nearly every State in the
Union-conducted by a worthy brother re?
siding in the far West, and representing a
people who, only, a few brief months be?
fore, were arrayed in arms against our
people, but wdio, as soon as tho obliga?
tions and allegiance of tho belligerents to
their respectivo Governments permitted,
united on a common altar, and ouried the
animosities of tho past in a bottomless pit
of oblivion. No sooner was peace pro?
claimed, than our fraternal relations were
re-established, and tho harmony of our
temple reconstructed without question,
?conditions or amendments. The charity
of Christian churches has not yet been
?qua! to obliterating the bitter dissensions
in tho past, and yet our brotherhood is
firmly-gloriously-re-ostablished. Such is
Masonry! May we prove worthy exemplars
of an institution which teaches suchtonots
as generously dispel all hate and malice
against a brother.
There havo been thorne signal illustra?
tions of the completo restoration of frater?
nal relations in every section of tho Union,
and of the disposition of Lodges and
brethren to alleviate the misfortunes which
have overtaken f?s in various ways within
the past few sad years.
The Grand Lodge of tho State of PenH
sylvania, with a noble disinterestedness,
responded to tho appeal made by our
Brethren Bruns and Simms, acting under
authority of my predecessor, and donated
$1,000 to* this Lodge. This donation was
acknowledged by me, and a draft drawn in
favor of Bro. Bruns for the amount on
Bro. Williamson. Grand Treasurer of that
Lodge, and paid by him to your Grand
Treasurer. I suggest that somo action bo
taken by you in acknowledgment of cur
fraternal appreciation of this generous do?
nation, ami that the correspondence be?
tween M. W. Bro. Lucius H. Scott, Grand
Master of Pennsylvania, and myself, on
tho subject, be published with your pro
ceedings.
Scale worthy brethren in Boston havo
presented a set of jewels to one of tho
Lodges in this city, and a worthy brother
in Now York succeeded in obtaining there
a Past Master's jewel, which had L-C?II ab?
stracted, and restored it to Landmark
Lodge of this city, through Bro. Gurney.
A brother in Syracuse, New York as in?
terested himself to recover tho jewels of
Claremont Lodge- supply such as could
not bo reclaimed, and restored them. A
brother from Illinois has recovered and
kindly restored the Warrant of Constitu?
tion of Allen Lodge; and several similar
acts of kindness have been extended to
the Lodges of this State, the details of
which would not be of special interest.
Since the 7th of February last, 1 have
granted dispensations for seventeen now
Lodges, which ia the largest number ever
granted in this State in any preceding
year, and furnishes the very highest evi?
dence of tho incroasing prosperity, popu?
larity and growing usefulness of our order.
I recommend that Warrants of Constitu?
tion bo granted them respectively. Tho

bethel Lodge is situated in Spartanburg
District, and was recommended by Reid
villo Lodge, of the santo District. Shortly
after tho dispensation waa granted. I re?
ceived a communication from the W. M.,
of Wallace Lodge, Laurens District, com?
plaining that Bethel was nearer to Wal?
lace than Beidvillo ; tba? ttl o former had
refused to recommend Bethel ; and that
tho petition thus rejected was presented
to Reidville and improperly granted.
lt is about two miles nearer to Wallace
than to Beidvillo, but the Kooree Liver,
! the dividing lino between Spartanburg and
Laurens Districts, separates Wallace ami
Bethel. When tho bridge at the Usual
crossing chances to b* carried away by
freshets, the distance to be traveled i.
greater to Wallace than Beidvillo. As tin
application came from residents of Spar?
tanburg, and tiieir convenience as well as
that of the surrounding community would
be promoted, and as I believed ibero wa?
abundant material of excellent quality foi
both the Lodges, 1 did not revoke the dis?
pensation, though the action of Reidvilh
Lodge, and the action of tho petitioner!
in failing to state tin? facts to 'me fully
when the application was made, did nol
Commend them to my upproval. Thc
amendment to the 134th Article of tlu
Constitution, adopted at tho last Commit
nieation of the Grand Lodge, prohibits :
Lodge located iu one District from elect
ing or initiating any member residing ii
another District, if then: be a Lodge ii
the District where the candidate resides
The material in Spartanburg, though mon
convenient to Wallace, cannot be "workec
by that Lodge, and 1 recommend that i
Warrant of Constitution bo granted Bethe
Lodge.
I have received and bog to iay befor?
you a memorial of the presiding officers o
the Lodges in the city of Columbia, witl
reference to tin; donation made this Gram
Lodge by tho Grand Lodgo of the State o
Pennsylvania. Tho Commissioners b;
whom the donation was obtained ?Were ap
pointed by thc.officers of the Grand Lodg<
of this State to represent the necessitie
of the Columbia Lodges, who had los
their halls, jewels and furniture by th
disastrous tire of February, 1805, and th
request of these Lodges to have the funi
appropriated exclusively to their benefit
seems to be founded in justice. lu an iu
terview I have had with the Commissioner
the view of tho Columbia Lodges is full;
sustained. For reasons entirely satisfac
tory, which will bo explained to you by th
Commissioners, tho donation was made t
the Grand Lodge, to dispense according t
its discretion ; but the misfortunes of th
Columbia Lodges unquestionably furnish
ed the consideration for the bounty, and
respectfully recommend that tho whol
sum be appropriated for their benefit.
1 I regret to say to you that the Gran
Lecturer of this State, Brother Mackey
lias communicated to me his purpose i
resigning tkat position, on account of hi
inability, from oflicial encasements in th
city, to visit thc country Lodges in the prc
sedition of his valuable and much value
labors. His contributions to the Lodges i
oral instruction, to the literature of Mason
ry-in expounding the rites, ceremonies
ordinances, usages and traditions-in th
numerous volumes ho has published
places the fraternity under the deepec
obligations to him, who has for more tba
a quarter of a oentury labored to dissemi
nato and elevate the science of Fre
Masonry.
In retiring from a position which he ha
signally adorned for so many years, he wi
carry with him the grateful acknowledg
ments of his brethren, for whoso in:
provement he has labored so assiduously
a reward second only in value to tho sel;
conscionsuess of having performed well hi
great task.
To secure unity and consistency in th
workings of tho subordinate Lodges, it i
very desirable that this vacancy should I;
filled by some worthy, well informo
brother. The office was created by rest
lution, which also designated him as th
person to till it, and his resignation wi
not only vacate, but terminate the ofiici
If you concur with me in tho propriety (
continuing t lie office, it will be necessar
for you to take action to that end an
provide a salary for him.
As each new presiding officer of tl:
Grand Lodge assumes his position, he :
subjected to much embarrassment i
deciding the almost innumerable que:
lions submitted to him, from the omisaic
of his predecessors to make any record i
the decisions made during their term
In a few years, if those decisions were pr
served, a large mass of Masonic jurispri
dence would bo accunilated, new office
would have precedents for the que
tions to be decided, and unity, uniformit.
and consistency bo secured in tho goner
administration of Masonic law, not wit!
standing thu change of ollicials.
I therefore suggest that hereafter tl
Grand Master prepare a brief abstract
every queatiou submitted to bim for of
cial decision, and of the judgment he pr
nounces. with permission to assign tl
reasons for such judgment, and that I
forward the sumo to the Grand Secretar
quarterly, who shall record tho decision
and at each Annual Communication r
port the same to the Lodge. The Grai
Lodgo will thus bo informed, and if erro
should bo committed, tho con9titutio
may be amended so as to guard again
their subsequent recurrence.
The Grand Secretary, in his report,Jw
give you full information as to the foreii
correspondence with sister Grand Lodges,
and you will have tho gratification of learn?
ing that our relations with all Grand Sis?
ter Lodges arc of thc most satisfactory
and fraternal character.
By resolution of the Grand Lodge, pass?
ed 22d November, 5SG0, the Grand Secre?
tary was authorized to re-publish the Ala?
man Rezon, w'th thc necessary alterations
required by tho adoption of the revised
Constitution. Tho publication has just
been made, and from the cursory examina?
tion 1 have been able to make, the task
has been performed with accuracy and
fidelity. Tho officers of tho various
Lodges may procure copies by application'
to him.
BRETHREN : Tho institution was never in
a moro nourishing condition in South Car?
olina than at tho present time. Harmony
and good feeling reigns supreme in most of
tho subordinate Lodges within the juris?
diction-thc officers and members are ear?
nest and zealous in their work, and exem?
plary in their conduct and deportment -
tho Lodges aro growing more circumspect
in scrutinizing all applications for Masonic
honors, and they are applying thc pruning
knife with a firm and just hand to unwor?
thy members.
I invoke the blessing of (?od upon your
deliberations, and pray that justice, wis?
dom and brotherly love may ne indelibly
stamped upon all your proceedings.

FEVERS, CHILLS, AGUE, ?S;C_
Tho cause of fever is tho contamination of
the blood by some morbitic agent. Tho
nerves connected with nutrition and or?
ganic contractility suffer alteration in their
composition. Tho muscles, deprived of
nervous influence, begin to wasto, and this
waste produces heat. Tho heart ia in?
creased in its action, and tho blood is ren?
dered still more impure by receiving the
wasted tissues by the continued action of
the morbid agent, as well as by the func?
tions of thc lungs, liver and spleen being
impeded. Purify, therefore, the springs of
life, tho blood. Uso tho "Queen's Delight "
tho great blood remedy, and all morbid
agents will bv? removed. The Queen's De?
light has cured many cases of contamina?
tion of tho blood, chill and fever, typhoid
fever; eruptise fever will bo prevented by
the free use of tho Queen's Delight. For

BK ON THE ALEUT! DANGER IS
AT H.VXD:-Til is has been a sickly season.
The medical faculty prophecy evil in the
future. Tiny think pestilence is on the
wing for America. Suppose this to be
true, what, is the best defence against it?
Redoubled nervous vigor. This is tiu; only
protection against panie, as well aa against
the principle of infection. Why do not
those who predict the epidemic propose an
adequate preventive? There is one-a
tonic, nervine and alterative, competent to
shield the system against tho snbtlo ele?
ments of disease, whether they float hither
on tho winds from distant lands, or riao
like vapor from our own soil, or aro incor?
porated with tho universal fluid. This on?
pr?ventive, of which there is no duplicate
among the compounds, either of tho Old
World or the New, is HQSTETTER'S STO?
MACH BITTERS.
Remember that it is a specific for all the
complaints which lay the system open to
visitations of deadly epidemics. If you aro
dyspeptic, it renews the vigor of your di?
gestive powers, gives you appetite and re?
stores your cheerfulness. If you are
nervous, it invigorates every fibre of your
nervous system, from the base of the brain,
where it begins, to the extremities, where
it terminates. If you are bilious, it disci?
plines your unruly liver and brings the
action rf that organ into harmony with
thc laws of health. It is, in short, an in
vigorant and alterative so powerful that
nature, with Hostetter's Bitters for her
ally, may bid defiance alike to native mala?
ria and foreign infection. If this enemy we
hear of-this disease which is desolating
Europe-is really bound hitherward, it be?
hooves the prudent to put on their armor,
to clotho themselves with invulnerability
as far as human moans will permit, by pre?
paring tho system for resistance with this
l>ure vegetable antidote. Nov 16 f6
