THE GRAND LODGE OF MASONS OF OHIO.
Thore are three hundred and fifty Masons,
members of the Grand lodge of Ohio, no in
MMion in this city. They are a select grade
of men ai to cipacity and character, and
their proceedings are conducted with great
ability. The Grand Lodge of Ohio is re
spected in the various State jurisdictions for
her position in the Masonic family. The
able report of her Standing Committees are
distinguished for force and terseness. The
present prosperous condition of the Order in
this State is represented in the elevated tone
of the sentiments manifested in the dis
cussions of this Masonic General Assembly,
as in the purity of private life inculcated in
the several Lodges.
The proceedings of yesterday were most of
it of details not of general interest. The
proposed amendment of the Constitution, by
which the Ancient Constitution now attached
to it, recognized and sdopted as the fund
amental laws, rules and regulations for the
government of Masons, having during Che
past year been submitted to the vote of the
constituent Subordinates, did not receive a
maiority vote of the Lodges, and was not
adopted. .......
PROFITLESS PROJECTS.
There generally is a failure in such
to realise profit from money . investments,
their true policy being to have but a alight
excess of money on hand, thereby prevent
ing scheming. Years ago this grand body
bought real estate in Lancaster, and ex
pended money and incurred debts in malting
an Impotent attempt to erect thereon a Grand
Masonic Hall now, the ground even is an
incumbrance.
The rand Master, and Dr. Biock, of Sa
lem, and Yiioil E. Shaw, of Lancaster, were
appointed a oommittee to sell or dispose of the
same. Qaite a large turn was loaned to a Ma
sonio Building Association at Chillloothe, with
the expectation that the Grand Lodge would
for the four thousand dollars exoept the fine
hall in the ancient metropolis but the Grand
Lodge, not designing or desiring to locate, has
had to take legal steps to foreclose the mort
gaie on the building.
In Iowa we learn the Grand Lodge has in
velved itself In a heavy debt, having become
responsible for purohsses for Libraries.
There is pending a project to engage the
Grand Lodge of Ohio in support of a Widows'
and Orphans' Home in this State; alto, to en
list by commendation of the enterprise to the
subordinates, of a proposed monument to the
' late distinguished Arctio navigator, the Ameri
can Mason, Dr. Elisha Kent Kank.
The Grand Lodge of Ohio has manifested a
nen-eonenrrenoe in the project line lately,
deelining In deolded terms last year to encour
age the purchase of Mount Vernon, finally to
beoome the property of the State of Virginia;
also, to be engulfed in the Masonio Library
GRAND MASONIC LODGE REPRESENTATIVE SYSTEM.
The Representative system of Sister Grand
Lodge organisations was for the first time in
troduced yesterday, in Ohio. Some ten years,
it is said, Fast Grand Master Ksiidis, of
Ohio's authority, bearing date August 8, 1S49,
was g'ven for the sounding the mystio gavel in
that jurisdiction, while, at the present time its
Grand Lodge is composed of thirty-two char
. tend Lodges and over one thousand members.
Past Grand Master W. B.TaBALL,)of Columbus,
was received yestorday with appropriate honor
in being introduced as Commissioner Repre
sentative cf the Grand Lodge of Minnesota,
near the Grand Lodge of Ohio, which is an ap
propriate seleotion. Fast Grand Master Bbn
jaiiih F. Smith has heretofore been ohosen as
Ohio's Representative near the Grand Lodge
of Minnesota.
This question of Interest was disposed of
' yesterday by the Grand Lodge of Ohio : "Is
, the subordinate lodge, of which a brother dies
. a member, liable for the funeral expenses in
curred by a sister lodge the brother having
died in destitute clrcumBtanoes." It was de
clared that no law or rale of the Grand Lodge
requires the payment of expenses so inenrred.
COLUMBUS POSTMASTER.
There was a rumor in this place last night
that messages of evil omen to the official exist
ence of Thomas Millbb, Postmaster of this
elty, had been received in Columbus. The
: talk is that Thomas Sfasbow is to be rein
stated. He was in office on the advent to
power of the present National Administration,
but displaoed to provide for Thomas Mm. he,
who after due time was displaced as an Anti
Leoompton, and succeeded by Samcsl Ms dart,
since Governor of Kansas, a former occupant of
the place. Millsr was restored and haa con
tinued nntil this present time, when it would
L appear that another restoration is to occur.
- This history is quite curious; three Postmasters,
after serving one period, obtain the coveted
office after an intervening time. Mr. SrAsaow
has been recently elected Connty Commissioner,
by a very large msjoiity, in opposition to the
tegular ticket, as an independent Democrat.

Over two hundred subordinate lodges of
Ohio were represent at the Grand
Lodge, just opened on Tuesday, at Colum

Captain John Brown emigrated to Kansas
from Central New York, in the fall of 1855,
and settled in the township of Ossawattomie.
He was accompanied by seven sons, the
youngest being old enough to earn his liveli-
HOOU. AUO UirbUUlHVO Ul uiunu lb uvi puai-
tively known to the writer, but report has it
that he was born in Kentucky. At the time
of his death he was about sixty years of age.
He was about medium night, slim, muscular,
and possessing an iron constitution. He had
blue eyes, sharp features and long gray hair,
wearing a full beard. I
In December, ism, during ine "enannon
War," Brown first made lis appearance
among the free State men at Lawrence. His
entrance into the place at once attracted the
attention of the people toward him. He
brought a wagon load of cavalry sabres, and
was accompanied by twelve men, seven of
whom were his own sons. He first exhibited
his qualities at the time the freo State and
pro-slavery parties, unaor ine lenu oi uov
ornor Robinson on one aide, and Governor
Shannon on the other, met to mako a treaty
of peace. After Governor Robinson had
stated to the people who were galnorea arouna
t.hd hotel the terms of the peace, Brown took
tho stand, uninvited, and opposed the terms
of the treaty. He wob in favor of ignoring
all treaties, and such leading men as Robin
son, liane ana liOwry,ana proceeuiug uvunce
against the border rullian invaders, drive
them from the soil or hang them if taken.
General Lowry, who was cnairman oi ine
Committee of Safety, and also commandor of
the free State troops, ordered Brown under
arrest.
One of bis sons, who was elected to the Leg
islature in February, 1856, was seiied and
taken from Ossawattomie to Leoompton in
chains, a distance of thirty miles. His feet
and hands were ohained together with a large
heavy ohain, the size of that used upon ox
teams. He was compelled to walk the whole
distanco beneath a burning sun. The Irons
wore the flesh from his ankles; he wasattaoked
with the brain fever, was nogleoted, and died
in two or three days. He was a eompanion of
Governor Robinson, Jenkins, (slnoe shot by
Lane,) and some eight or ten others. Another
son of Captain Brown was shotatOssawstomla
by a marauding party from Missouri. After
the death of his first son, occasioned by tho
tortures and fatigue of his forced march, Brown
swore vengeanoe upon the pro-slavery party,
and it was frequently observed by the moat
prudent of the free-State men that he was evi
dently insane on the subject. He was always
considered by them as a dangerous man, was
never taken into their oouncils, and never con
sulted by them with, reference either to their
policy or movements. ' ,
The destruction of tho Free State Hotel
aud presses at Lawrence, in May, 1858,
incited him anew to action, and he organized
a small company, composed chiefly of men
who had been robbed, or whose relatives had
been murdered by the pro-slavery party, and
at the head of this band armed with Sharp's
rifles. Bowie-knives and Colt's revolvers, he
scoured Southern Kansas, and the name of
"Old Brown" became a terror to all who
opposed his will in that region. . While he
was thus maurauding, five pro-slavery men
were taken from their oabins at Pottawat
tamie Creek, in the night time, and phot
dead. The pro-slavery party charged this
deed upon Old Brown, while the free State
i party assorted that -they could jsfove hitn In
.Lawrence, tony muus umuim, wjcu u uno
pened, and .that the horrid deed was perpe
trated by "Buford's Georgia Ruffians, supposing
that the victims were free Statesmen.
The news of this massacre reached VTestoort,
Missouri, the place of rendezvous of the"btrder
ruffians," the same evening that the Kansas
Commission sent . out by the United States
Unnsa of Representatives arrived at that Dlloe,
The exoltement was intense, and was induced
almost as much by the appearance or tne torn
mission. as bv the news of the massaore. The
"ruffians" swore vengeanoe upon the members
and officers of the Commission, declarlngHhat
their blood should recompense for the slaughter
at Pottawattomie Creok, and but for the inter
cession of Mr. Oliver, the pro-slavery member
of the Commission, and others, it was beliired
that the Commission wouia nave oeen : at-
funked. It was at this time that the notorious
H. Clay Pate organized a band of men in the
streets of Westnort. Mo., with the avowed
DurDose of entering the Territory and captur
tog "Old Brown." He raised about thirty
men. and went into the Territory about twi
light one evening, and was surprised at sunrise
the next morning by "Old Brown," who was
in command of nine men, armed as stated
above.!
. . . n I . ,
Fate sent a nao or truoe to urown, woo
vanoed some rods in front of his oompany and
ordered the flag-bearer to remain with him,
and sent one of his own men to inform Pate to
oome himself. Pate obeyed, when Brown or
dored him to lay down hi3 arms. Pate re
fused to slve the order to his men, when
Brown, drawing a revolver, informed him that
he must give the order or be shot on the spot.
Pate immediately surrendered up himself and
men, and tbey wore disarmed and marched into
a ravine near by, and kept until liberated and
sent back to Missouri, by Col. Sumner, a few
days subsequently, who also ordered "Old
Brown" to disband and go home. The latter
agreed to do so if the Colonel would also agree
to nroteot tne settlers in mai region oi vuu ter
ritory. This was tho Celebrated "Battle
Blank Jaok Point." made famous by "H. C,
P.." Kansas oorresnondent of the St. Louis
Republican, wno was tne neroic commanaer
the surrendering party. - -
Caotain Brown was not muoh heard from
again until the notorious Captain Hamilton
mde his inoursions into Southern Kansas from
Missouri in 1858, when he raised another
somoanv. and. with Captain Montgomery
drove Hamilton and his companions baok
Missouri, and, marohing his men into that
State, took possession of one of the villages,
shot one or two men, and liberated several
laves. This course of Brown was repudiated
by Govern . Robinson and the leaders of the
free State party, in and out of Kansas, whioh
caused Brown to publish a letter explaining
his position, in which he assumed the entire
responsibility of his aots, and relieved the
Free State men from any share therein. This
letter was called the "Two Parallels," on ao-
oountof thepeouliar distinotioa made by the
writer. . . "
Captain Brown was fanatical on tho subject
of anti-slavery, and seemed to have the idea
tnat ne was specially aeputea oy m u
miffhtv to liberate slaves and kill slavohold
ers. ft was always conceded to him that
was a conscientious man, very modest in
demeanor, apparently inoffensive until the
subject of slavery was introduced, when
would exnioii a teeiing oi inaignauon uu
Daralleled. After matters subsided in Kan
sas. Brown Intimated to some of his anti
slavery friends that ho contemplated organ
izing an insurrection among the slaves

This fact becoming known to some of
leading anti-slavery men of the country, they

discouraged his proposed undertaking.
