CAAL BTREET, THE MEMORY OF JOYS THAT ARE PAST. cc By Jose w. rV ci. as Where are now the gowers that ones detained me. Like a loiterer on my early way? be Where the fragrant wreaths that softly chained re me, ve When young life was like en infant's play? 01 Where they but the fancied dreams that hoverem a Round the couch where tender hearts repose? FA Only pictured veils that brightly cover With their skyey tints a world of woes? They are gone-but memory loves to cherish ci All their sweetness in her deepest core. Ah! the recollection cannot perish, L Though the eye may never meet them more. There are hopes, that like enchantment, brighten Gaily in the van of coming years; They are never met, and yet they lighten, When we walk in sorrow and in tears. 9 When the present only tells of anguish, Then we know their worth, and only then; 0, the wasted heart will cease to languish, 0 When it thinks of joys that might have bee. tl Age, and suffering, and want, may sever Every link, that bound to life, in twain; Hope-even Hope m' y banish-but forever Memory with her visions will remain. ti -- L COLORED MEN OF WASHINGTON. n el SOME SKEncEU or Tazx. I The antecedenteof Mr. Frederick Don- w glass, Sr., now a citizen of Washington, u and elitor and I rO fietor of the New Na- 1 twnal Era, are too well-known to need h repetiton here. Rising from the greatest k obscurity, by his fine talents and indom- t itable energy energy I e has won a pose- 8 ti(o in society second to none in dignity iu and influence. He is a native of the eas- h f tern shore of Maryland, has long been , identified with the city of Rochester, New a York. a I Professor Joax M. Laserow, for some j, I years a citizen of Washington, is a mem- t ber of the board of health in the new Ter ritorial government. Profoessor Lang- g ston came here from Oberlin, Ohio, where t he received his education. He was an in- s spector ef the schools in the Freedmen's t c Bureau until that position was abolish.I f " by the expiration of the law which au . thorized it, since which time he has been a a law professor in Howard University. f Mr. Langston is looked upon as an able c lawyer, and is universally known as an el- j oquent orator. His voice and influence are ever directed to the great object of t elevating and educating his race. Mr. JAMES WOEMLEY, Sr., is one of the I most successful cok r.d men in this I 1 city, and is, probably, at this time the wealthiest among them. Wormley, the i cterer, is known by bon-vitant4 from ] e Maine to Texas, and those who, in for mer days, were fortunate enough to fall 1 in the way of his good cheer are always sure to look him up if ever they return C to the Federal Capital. Mr. Wormley I r commenced life in this city as a hack-dri- 1 a ver, after which he turned his attention i t to keeping a restaurant. This he found a to be the calling for which nature evident- i ly intended him. Mr. Wormley now owns five large houses, one of which is rented , by Secretary Robeson, and four are filled ý with boarders. The first house which Mr. Wormley becamepossesed of has re ceived many distinguished occupants. SIt was here that Lieutenant General Winheld Scott was wont to take up his *quarters, and amomg the prominent men e. who have lodged beneath its roof were Senator Wigfall, Secretary Floyd, Speak er Pennington, Anthony Trollope, Gener al Halleck, John Vanburen, Senor Goni, the Spanish Minister, and General Geo. R .McClellan. In this house the Duke de Charters and Prince de Joinville used to give their grand dinner.. It is now -- occupied by the Hon. George 31, Robe son, Secretary of the Navy, who pays a 7,rent of $3,003 a year for it. !Professor Wz~aos,Casbier of thecFreed man's Saving Bankin this caty, is aman of some note. This now thriving Insti tile tution owes,in agreat mreasure, its ori gin and success to tba energy and ability of Professor Wilson, who seconded the*ef forts of CoL D. L. Eaton and Mr. Alvord, vet of the Freedman's Buresa, by visiting in liin person the colored soldiers who left the city, and inducing them to deposit their money in the bank, which malnsl col lection became the nucleus of the present millions that are now deposited there by the colored people all over the country, Mr. Wilson has built. himself a fine res idence on P. street, where he now lives. Dr. Auvuwwa, the princeipalcolored phay. sicisa in the city, has an extenstve and Sreassnerative peuiti@a4 ogbhe only commenced it about five years ago. Dr. saic Augusta is a young man, has been an s sistant surgeon in the army, and is be- iti lieved to be not only a skilled physician, be but a man of cultivated mind. It will be LA remembered that Dr. Augusta was invol- he ved in a contest with the medical society of the District, which refused rather over at a year since, toreceive him into member- m ship. The quarrel even found its way to to the Soors of Congress, but Dr. Augusta d has not yet gained admittance to the so ciety.-Bsaing Bank. be at LEGISWATION REGARDING NON- nC AFFILIATION. di be We are continually in receipt of letters from almost every section of the United so States, requesting information regarding 1e the status of non-affiliated Masons. In order to convey as concisely as possible t the desired light on this, one of the most l important subjects, if, indeed, not the most important which has attracted, to within the past twenty years, the atten.. o tion of the various American Grand Lodges (for we believe the subject has f not as yet disturbed those of Europe, or elsewhere), we comply with the requests na made of us. sc Several of our Grand Lodges have, as t1 we believe, in violation of the principles 4 upon which our Society is based, enacted laws which render the non-affiliated Mason subject to the highest penalties o1 known to Masonry, if he does not con tribute to the support of the Grand or 1o Subordinate Lodges in the jurisdiction in which he may reside; while others n have, with more regard to the principles f which ought to govern the Craft, con fined themselves to the passage of enact- a ments depriving non-affiliates of the en joyment of eertain benefits of the insti tution. In order that our querists may, at a glance, learn the action which has been taken by various Grand Lodges on this subject, and which, we think, will answer their several purposes, we present the following summary: The Grand Lodge of Maine directs its n subordinates, in all cases of application for dimits, to sufer no member to with- e draw, unless to form a new Lodge or to join another. s The Grand Lodge of Vermont declares ° f that all non-affiliated Masons shall be in- e definitely suspended, and they and their a families be excluded from all the privi a liges and benetits of the institution. D Massachusetts deprives every Mason, D not a member of some Subordinate a Lodge, from visiting the same Lodge, in F - the place when he resides, more than I twice, without the permission of the s Master or vote of the Lodge. 2 New York, in its Constitution, provides Sthat, it being the duty of every Mason to - belong to some Lodge, and contribute to c a its funds, therefore, any Mason who does I not contribute to the funds, or belong to some Lodge, shall not be entitled to visit a more than twice while he so continues, I or to join in processions, or receive as d sistance or relief, or Masonic burial. h Pennsyvaw nia declares that no brother s- made in a Lodge beyond its jurisdiction, .. and having been a resident there for 'I three years without joining a Lodge, as shall be entitled to Masonic relief, nor a shall his family be entitled to apply there re for ; and denies to abr~other who i not k- a member of a Lodge permission to visit r- any Lodge more than once. ii, Mafrytund deprives a Master Mason, o. not a contributing member of any cc Lodge, of the right to visit the same ad Lodge more than twice, unless he joins iw some regular Lodge. e- The District Qf Columsbia directs that a no Lodge shall, more than once, admit as a visitor any resid 3Lt Mason not a d- member of some Lolge ; amd no resident in Mason, non-affiliated more than one year, ti- shall participate in any public proces ri- sion or ceremony, nor shall any such, ty nor their widews or orphans, be entitled if- to any benefit from any Lodge--all such NI, non-affiiated Muasns being regarded as in profanes, not known to the Fraternity in aft any of its organised forms. sit Virginie declares that a non-affliated al- MsEO2 Shull not beentitled tol join ansy at Masonic procesiwa, or to any Maoi by burial, or any pecuniary ad from a ry.

N Aladesm sys tyat a Mason should never fe be allowed a dimit without cause; he has no right to non-efliats himself; and that none but ms hated Masom, shallin eas of fr death, be buried with Masonic honors, or fu be entitfed to Masonic ebarity. Misasiesppi deprives non-ailiated Ma- of sons of all the rights, benefits, and privi- as leges of the Lodges; that is to say, the f right to visit, the right to charitable aid, to the right to join in processions and to q Masonic burial. pH Louisiana divests them of all the right to visit, to assist at any public ceremoniesi or processions, to Masonic burial, or to receive relief for themselves or familes tb from the charity funds of the Society. th Teuxs instructsits Surbordinate Lodges th not to grant relief to non-affiliated Ma sons out of the Lodge funds, and refuses as them the right to visit any Lodge more ti than three times. th Arkansas maintains that they have no right to visit a Lodge unless by consent B of the same, with or without terms; nor of to relief from the Lodge; nor to join her at local processions; nor to Masonic burial. `x Missouri declares that they shall have T no claim or right to aid from the Charity pi funds of the Grand Lodge or its Subor- Lt i iates,nor shall they be permitted to visit ti a Lodge more than twice without the to unanimous consent of the members. Tennessee expresses the opinion of its* Grand Lodge, that non-affiliated Masons ei are not entitled, as a matter of right, to n the charities of the Society. Kentucky, leaves it discretionary with E its Lodges to bury a non-affiliated Mason u irrespective of his otherwise good stand- y ing, or of his request. p Ohio recommends its Lodges to dis- u countenance, by all proper means, the d prretice of non-affiliation, and to with- p hold from non-affiliated Masons the right 0 of visiting, of participating in the public exercises and of Masonic interment. Indiana directs that they shall not be permitted to visit any Lodge under its n jurisdiction, be entitled to Masonic e' burial, to receive relief from the Charity b funds, or to be allowed to assist at any v e public ceremonies. Illinois declares that non-affiliated h Master Masons, who refuse to contribute n to the support of the institution, unless a e prevented by disability by so doing, for feit all the rights, privileges and benefits f, of the Society. Michigan refuses to a Mason residing v within the jurisdiction of a Lodge the it right to visit the same more than three , times without becoming a member there- I aft except sojourners, unless they be t members in good standing of some Lodge in its jurisdiction. Wisconsin pronounces all non-afliat , ed Masons as not entitled to any of the' r benefits of Masonry, and deprives them a, of its privileges, nor have say of their r families claims for pecuniary aid. Joans orders that Masons not of any SLodge and residing in the Jurisdiction itof its Grand Lodge shall pay int the it Grand Treasury the same dues asare1 required from affliated Masons, and for '~than once. to Mianesols prohibits a11 non-affliated is sand non-contributing Masons from re ceiving Masonic aid, sad deprives them at of the prvileges of the Craft, permittinr mohem owever, to visit a Lodge not moethan three times. a Cl~fornia deprives all non-affliates, atwho do not contribute, of all the raghts, ir, privileges and benefits of the Fraternity. g- Oregon makes non-seflliates pay dues, or debars them of all Masonic privileges ANEARNEST APPEAL TO SOUTH ERN CONSERVATIVES. as in TnzTumusess, we arete aware, is not a onsemtive jwml in thelaes ad application of the term.

Thepast is past. The dead are here a no more. Not even a lunatic now urges i the restoration of Slavery. The notion P that Four Millions of Blacks may some how be lured qr driven to abandon their z native land for that of their remote an- - cestors has no longer a serious advocate. The Blacks will not migrate to the n North, nor even to the North-West. A few may go to Africa; another handful C scatter in various directions; but the 4 body of them will remain in the ld of their birth, tendigrather from the lames and the to the further South and South-West In short, they and their descendants will live among you, and work for you and for other, around you. And, having acquired and exercised the political rights of en franchised citizenship, they are not likely to be divested thereoL Any serious at temptto reduce them to even tical vassalage and impr'tenoe in uincite perilous and desolating convulsions. What are you doing to qualy(y these fd low-citizensfor the grave rospona hilities thus imposed on them? Of course, you are not responsible for I their enfranchisement We all know that Had the decision rested with you, they would not now be voters, nor would they be free. But they are free, and I they are voters; and your welfare, as well as theirs, is to be powerfully affected by their exercise of the functions for which they are as yet so imperfectly qualified. When the last great Extension of the Elective Franchise was achieved in Great Britain, Robert Lowe, (now Chancellor of the Exchequer,) who had resisted it step by step with signal ability and stub born determination, promptly declared, "We must educate our new masters.'" That was the simple dictate of sel - preservation. And not Lowe alone, but the great majority of British Conserva tives, have since supported grants of money for Popular Education which, but for that Extension of Suffrage, they would have sternly resisted. Now, the very saddest aspect of South ern airs is the indifference evinced by nearly all, and the positive aversion ex hibited by so many of you to the Edu cation of the Masses, White as well as Black. Right well do you know how unit are your "poor White" as well as your Colored neighbors for the grave public trust they now discharge; yet you are evidently doing little, and likely to do little, to enlarge their qualifications. Most of you act as though the cost of Popular Education was just so much thrown away. We know that you are generally poor. The irst settlers of New-England were still rer; yet they built school-houses and hd teachers when they had barely roofs over their heads. They did this even while they allowed no one to vote but members in good standing of the re cognized C.iurch, so that loafers and vabouds were utterly powerless. Of course, you do not burn school houses wherein Black children are taught, nor mob their teachers; but both these wrongs are perpetrated, and your voices are seldom heard in earnest rebuke of such dastardly offenses. And it is per fectly notorious that teachers of Negro Schools-many of them noble, devoted women who would grace any social circle -are, as a class, the most unpopular Northerners now tolerated among you. And no other tax-not even that on Whiskey-is so odious in your section as that levied for the support of Common Schools. That the ignorant poor, White or Black, should dislike to be taxed for schools, need not excite surprise, were 1auch the fact But that you, who know the worth of Ediucation, who depreete rtesway of ignorance, wothn sar thatonr e-slaves should out-vote you, evine akinredspirit, is ainaing. SYou seem to wonder that "carpet-bag B ger" sand "sealawags" should be trse evince seal for general education, while S the latter do not, this choice is perfeotly Snatural.
