,NEW CONSTITUTION ELEC
TION. Tho "Nominee" Elected.
The Xew Constitution election
passed ofl' quietly in this county ou
Sat unlay last, there being but little
interest manifested in the result. The
same feelinr prevailed in many other
portions of tlu; State The most in
terest and the heaviest majorities for
it, were in the intci'ior counties,
along tlie Missouri river, on both
sides, the principal home of the Bour
bon element, where it was con
cocted, and which sentiment and in
terest, it in designed to strengthen
and perpetuate. It has been adopted
by a heavy majority, in proportion
to the vote cast. While we can but
acquiesce, like a good citizen, in the
result, we here reiterate our
honest conviction, made oft during
the canvass, that its adoption will
prove a most unfortunate day's work
for Missouri. Time wili prove this;
and to this unfailing arbiter we sub
mit our prediction:

Death of Judge Wm. M. Shanks.
There has been an alarm at the ou
ter door of the Lodge. We have at
tended to the alarm, and attending
find that the grim monster death hath
chosen one of our number for a vic
tim. We have beheld the tears of the
fatherless and motherlcs children,and
the grief of a multitude of sorrow
stricken relations and friends. We
have borne his mortal remains with
saddened hearts to the place of inter

Brother we have deposited in the
grave, also the roll, the apron, and
the evergreen, alike emblematical and
typical of a Mason's faith and trust.
We have chanted our requiem eong,
and with the benediction pronounced
turned sadly away, our hearts the
While repeating, "We cherish his
memory hero; we commit his body to
the tomb; we commend his soul to
God who gave it."
Can we pass the life and death of
our deceased Brother in review, and
not learn one of the saddest lessons
of life? Can we be reminded of his
interment under the solemn and im
pressive ceremonies of the Masonic
ritual, and not be impressed with the
thought of the duties we owe to our
selves, and to those cardinal virtues,
Fortitude, Prudence, Temperance
"As ye have sown so shall ye reap."
This i3 a divine precept unfolding to
our minds the gold of the mantle of
Masonic charity, and reminding us
that having fought well the good
fight, he will be richly rewarded in
that upper and better kingdom.
Thus we leave him in his last
peaceful sleep; his foibles protected,
his virtues unextolled. And may we
as brothers in the Fraternity so live,
that when our summons cornea to
"demit" from the earthly lodge he

may be said of us as of him, "a good
