I'rlrtny Morning, Feb. 11, 1878.
HeDry C. Bowen, of Brooklyn, held
his peace a long time, but now he has
spoken, and it is a death-blow to Henry
Ward Beecher. Mr. Bowen 's silence
was construed into antagonism to
Beecher, aDd a member of Plymouth
Church, S. V. White, was sent to him
to remonstrate with him and bring him
out of his silence. Bowen replied in a
long letter, the substance of which we
publish to-day. Bowen says that "with
out even the shadow of a doubt" in his
mind, "the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher
is guilty of the awful crimes of adulte-.
ry, perjury, and hypocrisy." He reius
es to give the names of some families
that Beecher has invaded and made
desolate. Verily, Beecher'? doom is
sealed, and even Plymouth Church will
soon be compelled to give him up and
let him sink int obscurity, which is
his lightest punishment. We desire to
thank the New York Sun for the brave
stand it has taken in this Beeoher busit
ness. It has never ceased, a single day,
to demand the abdication of Beecher
from the pulpit until his innocence was
proven. Not a word it has said could
be construed into malice, but every
sentence bore evidence of sincerity, and
was backed by a mountain of evidence.
But for the Sun's investigation into the
matter would have stopped, and Beech
er allowed to go on as usual; but that
paper kept up a steady, resistless fire
against the great but guilty preacher,
until now it will reap its reward doubt
less in the downfall of the greatest
preacher and the blackest and louleit
criminal of modern times. Lucifer fell,
and heaven was not destroyed but puri
fied; Beecher falls, and Christianity is
not overthrown but benefited. Go on,
Sun, and rid the country of that other
national calamity, Grantiem.

The South has always b9eu free from

Visited St. Louis, Memphis, and Nash

a report of her lecture in St. Louis.
Like Satan, she quotes Scripture when
it suits her purpose. She tells some
shameful truths on our boasted Chris

bound to endorse what she says, while
at tht same time they will leath and
despise her remedy for the same:

far back, with roses at tier throat and a New
Testament in one hand, the lectures at

where she immediately became very much
at home. Opening the look she read tiie
subject of her discourse from I Corinthians,
chapter II, verses lti and 17:

Washington, D. C, Jan. 26, 75.
To tha Editor of the Herald and Mail:
There is no news of special impor
tance I believe, since my last. The
House is now discussing the West Point
appropriation bill. A great deal is be
ing said, both pro. and eon. The Re-'
publicana are ' opposed to the bill. I
think the bill will, and ought to paas.
But as you get all those things from the
papers, there is no use in my writing
anything about them. I am a little
atraid that this Congress is "cutting
out" more mork than they can do.
From what little I can learn, every de
partmentis pretty busy giving infor
mation to committees, and inquiring
Congressmen. A member told me tha
other day that President Grant said to
him, that to famish all the information
that has been asked for, would require
an additional clerical force of about
360,'and about two years time. That is
my recollection of the number f clerks
and the time required, so yon see from
that, that a great many inquiries are
being made, and a great deal of infor
mation asked for. My own opinion is
that the only way for the people' to get
at current information as to how the
Govornment in its various departments
has been administered for the last
eight or ten years, will be to change tbe
administration. Because the whole
thing (the administration), is adverse to
showing itw hand in full, and naturally
too. Therefore, they only give such in
formation as is asked for. by a strict I
construction of the language used in
asking for it, and there are very few
men that are acquainted with tbe
usages, business details, ana tecnmcai
terms, Ac, used in tbe department-;
and I doubt whether even by a change
of administration, that information will
ever be given to the people. And at
this writing, the prospects are not very
sunshiny for a change, and for what
ever of clouds there may be in the po
litical sky, we owe it to some ot our
own so-called great men and statesmen;
great only in imprudence, and states
men only in making blunders.
Upon the great question, the question
to my mind before the people now, the
party is anything but united. When I
say the question, I mean the currency
question. Whether a compromise can
be effected so as to unite the party in
the coming canvass, I don't know, but
I am inclined to think not, for the
views of members are so extreme from
"hard" to "soft," that I think it ex
tremely doubtful of reconciling the two
wings. I have heard a member from
the South (Georgia), say he would not
vote for a man unless he was in fayor of
more Greenbacks. Now, unless men
of his way of thinking concede some
thing, as well as the extreme "hards,"
you will see there is no chance for com
promise. I have heard (from members)
that they hope to effect a compromise,
or a settlement of the question, by sim
ply repealing the "resumption act;" an
act which would be better named if en
titled "an Act to enrich the rich and
oppress the poor, to enrich the North
and East and impoverish the West and
South, There are a great many mem
bers who think they know exactly how
to work the thing, and to their mind
the act iu question can be carried out
now. But on inquiry, you find that
their panacea is more bonds and less
greenbacks. But as yet that question is
not discussed much and of course
my information is limited. Now, for
other Questions and matters. Tbe an
nual convention of the "Henwomen"
beiDg held here, and never having seen
or heard any of them, I went the other
night with W. H. Timmons, who stop
ped here a day to see tbe sight. The
convention was held at Talmage Hall, a
large well constructed hall, with stage
at one end, with scenery, &e. Upon the
stage sat a dozen or more women, ugly,
hard-looking and brazen-faced, except
about three, that were rather good look
ing. Upon the stage, at one side, sat
the negro, Fred. Douglass, and on the
other sat a white man, who, from tbe
position he kept, I supposed was asham
ed of his company. Tbe Presidentress
made a short address, in a sing-song,
backwoods school boy manner, very
simple and uninteresting. The Rev,
Dr. Mrs. Olympis Brown also made a
talk, spread I should say, in some
thing ot the stump orator style. As I
did not take notes, I can't tell you all
they said, but from what they did say
one would think the women of this
country lived in an almost unendura
ble sUte of servitude to man. Of course,
aside from its novelty, it was very dis
gusting to a man from our section ot
the country. Fred. Douglas is a mulat
to, with long grey hair, something like
old Reuben Polk's, only better looking
Ue made a speech, and I was surprised
at bis delivery and manner, both being
very good. He said some good things,
and spoke of the wo men on the stage as
"sisters," and did not cause tbe men
iu the audience to feel jealous of his po
sition on the stage with those women
but ask Timmons tor details.
Our friend, Mr. Jesse S. Harris, as
you know, is a gentleman of venerable
aspect and dignified bearing, and is sup
porting both here with commendable
facility. A lewdavs'acoa lady met
him in one oi th aisles and mistook
him for a Senator, spoke and bowed to
him verv politely, remarking, "that

takeu for a "member." and whenever
asked if he is a member, replies. "Ob,

and will be this winter very gay. They
have here frequently what is called in
polite, or the fashionable circle. "Tbe

The Burial of Our Se&d.
Man in his natural state, shrinks in
stinctively from the contemplation of his
last end, and when startled by the muffled
sound of the funeral bell, betokening the
death of a fellow-being, he wraps himself
in fancied security, thinking and acting
as though he alone should never die.
False, vain, preposterous and self-deluds
ed, esteeming every one mortal but him
self, he glides through life, and all uncon
scious and unprepared, drops into his
Above all men, the Mason should be
exempt from this Des Cartean egoism,
from the fact that the great truth memen
to mori is constantly kept before his
mind in all the beautiful and impressive
coremonies and sublime rites through
which he passes from Entered Apprentice
to Valiant Knight. We are born to
die, is written, as with a sunbeam, upon
symbol and emblem, and emblazoned
with the glory of the Shekinah above the
Ark of the testimony. Patience and per
severance, constancy and courage, peni
tence and humility, prepare the novitiate
inTemplary to learn for himself the same
great truth, in the startling and deeply
pathetic ceremonies of its sublime ritual
When we bury our dead, Bhadows and
types, emblems and allegories, relics and
imagery, are all swallowed up in a sol
emnly fearful and appalling reality. Here
we behold, in deed and in truth, humani
ty resting upon Divinity a human body
resting upon an open grave!
It may be the body of a brother whose
loved form but a few days since walked at
our side, in all the pride and strength of
glorious manhood. Is he deadt Test, if
you please, those senses and faculties
which were ever ready to respond
promptly and with alacrity when propet
fv hailed. Make a sign ; those once liv
ing orbs, the mirrors of the soul, which
conveyed to the mind impressions oi
beauty and delight, already sunken in
their hollow sockets,, heed ' you not.
Sound a battery the dull, leaden ear
awakes to no melody, hears no sound.
Grasp the hand the stiff, icy fingers ab
sorb no warmth, give back no responsive
grip. Blend in one diapason of agony
and distress, if you can, the startled
shriek of innocent maiden, the piteous
moan of destitute widow, and the deso
late cry ot helpless orphan those feet,
locked in death's cold embrace, move not.
Rustle the fieauseant, shout the battle
cry alackaday I the sword reposes still
in its scabbard. Alas, alas, he is dead
dead dead I That body, with its fear
fully wonderful faculties and sensibilities,
is only mortal, and rapidly resolves into
dust, whence it came, and the spirit res
turns to God who gave it.
We tenderly, lovingly put it away in
the grave, in the full assurance that the
Star of Bethlehem, the bright epiphany of
the resurrection, will keep watch over the
precious dust until the apocalyptic angel
shall descend from heaven and declare
that time shall be no longer. Then lie
who burst, the cerements of the tomb will
roll away the Btone from the mouth of the
sepulcher, and with the strong grip of the
Lion's paw oflhe tribe ot Judah, raise it
to life ana light and immortality.
As Masons we deposit our evergreens
in the grave, and plant a sprig of cassia
at its head, in token of our belief in the
immortality of the soul. The resurrec
of the body is not clearly taught us, but
is dimly adumbrated in the raising by
the strong grip of the Lion's paw of the
tribe of Judah, and the exaltation by Aa
ron's rod which budded and blossomed
and bore fruit. Hence Christian and
Jew join hauds around the same grave
and participate in the same ceremonies
the former believing in the Crucified One,
Jesus of Nazareth, as the Christ, the Son
of the Living God and the latter in the
promised Messiah, the Shiloh yet to
come. There is nothing, therefore, in
Masonry, whether Symbolic, Capitular,
or Cryptic, which legitimaeely teaches a
solution of this question; hence if presents
a broad and comprehensive platform up
pn which men of all religions and creeds
may stand, provided only they avow their
belief in the unity of God, and the immor-.
tality of the soul.
As Knights Templar we deposit in the
grave a cross decorated with evergreens,
in token of our belief in the resurrection
of the body, through Uim who offered up
His life as a propitiation for the sins ot
the world, and in the divine teachings
and sublime precepts which he has left t.
guide us in the paths of truth and holl
ness. The great primary truth that un
derlies all the orders of Christian Knight
hood, and stamps it with the seal of in
delible faith upon tbe minds and con
sciences of taose who become the recipv
ients of its sublime rights, is tbe Divinity
of Jesus Christ;
Masonry compared with Templary, is
like the Covenant of the Old Testament,
with its august and imposing temple ser
vice, its sublime ritualism, typical ol
good things to come in a promised Mes
siah, compared with the New Covenant of
grace, as set forth and sealed by the Holy
Ghost, in the birth, life, death, resurrec
tion and ascension of the Lord Jesus
We can readily see, that upon an occa
sion of such deeply momentous solemni
ty, standing between the living and tbe
dead, as it were, upon the border line oi
two worlds, all clashing of bodies or ming
ling and multiplying of ceremonies
would be sadly offensive to good taste
and proper decorum. My own humble
opinion is that after the religious exer
cises have been completed at the house
of the deceased, or at the church, there
should never be but one service at the
grave, and that should be the one desig
nated by the brother during his lifetime,
or specially requested by his nearest rela
tives If a member of a Commandery of
Knights Templar prefers to be buried by
his Lodge, or vice versa, let both bodies
turn out in lull, and do honor to the occa
sion without jealousy or rivalry. Or if
the burial service of the Odd Fellows, or
any other respectable society to which he
may belong be siuiarly preferrfd, let the
Masonic fraternity in all its bodies attend
the funeral, as silent and respectful
God forbid that we should exhibit upon
such on occasion, any of the petty jealt

In appreciation of the encouragement re
ceived from the people of this and adjoin

losiiory in tne uuituing formerly occupied
asthe Post Office, and directly opposite the
Nelson House, and we propose ; turnisb a
Carriage, Buggy, Wagon, or in fac la vihicle
of any discription, at rates not to be sur-

"Uertuan" is. I am not certain that I
know, but I think I do, though I hare i
not been at one. My opinion is that
it is what v. ould be called in tbe back
woods, where pUin language is used,
"Tbe hugging dance." If I am mlatak.

that when the "German" ia upoken ol i
you can look as wise as any one, though
ycu may not have fiver engaged in the

The Cincinnati Commercial believes
that Gen. Grant may as well turn bis
entire attention to making hay while
the sun shines, as the a ay oi ma politi
cal demise is not remote in tbe luture.
It says: "There are a few persons who
believe in his star. The omco-holders
are timid. The crowd ot brothers-in-
law and favorites about the White
Houpe are fierce for a third term. Be
fore the 14th ot June, however, tbe di
reel ion or puDiic opinion will be unmis
takably denned, and Grant will belong

The New Orleans Democrat inclined
to the belief that, pinch back, after all. is
about tbe most thorough representative
of the party the Southern Radicals could
send to the senate, it exclaims: "What
a good, beneficient, equality loving, pro
gressive, humane, christain orgaization
tbe Republican party is, as it exhibits it
self in tbe southern ."States: Ames and
Kellogg are pattern governors of States,
Hawkins is a pattern judge, and so is
Billings, should Grant and tbe Senate
make him one. Pinchback, West and
spencer. are its three model senators, all
aamired of men as nonpareil! Well
these are, we admit, suitable represen
tatives ol the .Republican party, igno
rant and depraved negroes and politi
cal blacklegs, scheming always how to
make a felonious living by cheating
honest people with their false dice, and
blustering, sometimes with bullying
oaths Let it be known as we know the
course of the wind by the weathercock,
that West, Spencer and Pinch back are
the fit exponents of the Republican par
ty in the South."
