TnK Masonic Procession, Dinner, &c., at Norfolk, on Tuesday. wont otT in grand style. Fine speeches were made. Grand Master Owen's was as follows : In looking around upon this large p^rm* Mage I see among you the ollieers and members of Norfolk Lod?e, No. 1, a lodge which, with four others, cent- delegates in 1777 to Williamsburg, and there took the initiatory steps for the organization of the Grand Lodge of Virginia. Nearly a cen tury has passed away: the generation of men then living has followed that which preceded it ; change and decay have placed their mark> upon all things "visible. The interests and passions of men have, been in hostile attitude; pestilence has rav aged our homes, and war lias black ened and devastated our beloved State ; and yet amid all the mutations of time, the persecutions of enemies, and the apathy of friends, she has steadily and per severinsrlv pressed forward in her mission of friendship and brotherly love, and not withstanding eleven of her subordinate Lodges were taken from her as a conse quence of the disruptions occasioned by the late civil war, she now numbers between eiiiht and nine thousand sons, many of them the best and purest men in our Com monwealth, whose zeal for the promotion of the tenets of our institution is continually exhibiting itself in works of charity, and in the erection of temples dedicated to uni versal benevolence. Under the benign iu tluenees of the teachings of our institution we entertain no apprehension that the "bright example of brethren dwelling to gether in unity." which has gilded the past oi our Grand Lodge, will io>c any of its lustre, but feel assured that her future his tory will be marked by the same devotion to "the principles of .Masonry which has ever characterized her, and which has re sulted thus far in gratifying success. My brethren, the good you have done should encourage you. and the good you may yet (.o should operate as an incentive to a more diligent discharge of the duties incumbent on you as Masons. In the language ad dressed to every one Mho enters our por tals, I now say to you that to soothe the unhappy, to sympathize with their misfor tune. to companionate their miseries, and to restore peace to their troubled minds, is the grand aim we have in view; and in this great and noble work in which you are engaged 44 without the hope of tee or reward," ?? Think not 'he poof!. tlif* gentle t)i.'? ilj ol' mercy li si Si'Sil ?llc forgotten all. 't lie poor. Mtc ner, j lie fatherless, >li" tikiuile-s. ?ii?i Mie ?i<l w, V h ? ilaily own t lie bo'iuty of th ; harxt, shall cry to Jie.- vvii pull * blcssipgon tin e." As the Grand JM aster of the Grand Lodge of Virginia,! congratulate the Fraternity ot Norfolk on the zeal which has animated them in the effort they are now making to rear a structure which will be a source of pride to all who are engaged iji it. You have ju>t cause for self-felicitation, and 1 trust that the unity which has heretofore prevailed in your assemblages will abide with you, and carry forward to completion the work ?o auspiciously begun to day. In behalf ot' the Grand Lodge, 1 use this occasiou to express to you all her deep in terest in your welfare as JVl.tsons and as men ; and'she tinds her honor promoted in vour virtue, and her strength increased in Vour numbers. She commends you to the care of that Providence that has sustained her in all vicissitudes; and sympathizing like a kind mother in all your circum stances, she adopts the language of her pa tron Saint, and says, "1 have no greater joy than to hear that niv children walk to gether in love." Senator Lewis on the Darky Question. | It has been announced that Senator John F. Lewis, who was elected by the Conser I vative members of the Virginia Legislature to represent the State for the long term in i the United States Senate, cast his vote in ! lavor of the infamous kuklux bill, notwith standing his testimony that no such organi zation existed in Virginia, and that law and order were as well maintained here as in any State of the I'nion. We are informed that "a gentleman of Liberty recently wrote to Sen ator Lew is representing that Sam. Kelso was wholly incapable of discharging the duties pertaining to the position of assistant route ageut, which he holds, and that the people were being subjected to considerable incon venience and lo*s by irregularities in the mail service. Mr. Lewis,"" in his answer, showed an unmistakon disposition to cham pion the cause of his colored friend, and insisted that he should have full time and ample instructions from the other agents before he is pronounced incompetent. 'J litis is the nigger to be crammed down our throats, whether we will or no. The mail .service is irregular, and the people arc suf fering; but in these times everything and everybody has to stand aside for the ever lasting darky.? Lynchburg Virginian. Terrible Rencontre ?

Mr. Moore was struck during the struggle and knocked into the corner of a fence near by, w hile Mr. Hanks was so unfortunate as to have his thigh fractured, and being other wise badly injured, he was unable to es cape from the vicinity of the infuriated quadrupeds.

The Senate adopted the new conference report on the deficiency appropriation. House.? The kuklux conference bill was taken up and discussed. There is no pros pect of an adjournment to-day. The debate ended by the Jlouse non-con curring in conference kuklux bill, and ask ing for a new conference. The deficiency appropriation still hangs in the conference committee. Both Houses tire in session to-night, with the understanding that they will adjourn finally. In the confusion reigning it is impossible to obtain the exact fea tures of either the kuklux or 'deficiency re ports. In the latter the appropriation to the Sisters of Mercy at Charleston is re duced from twenty to twelve thousand. The clause appointing an attorney to rep resent the Government before the southern claims commission, and that increasing the compensation of census-marshals, are strick en out. Thirty Republicans voted with the Dem ocrats, thus defeating the kuklux bill in the House, and there were fifty absentee?. The Sherman amendment to that bill is the chief point of contention between the two Houses. ? The House adopted the conference re port on the deficiency appropriation, which had already been adopted by the Senate. It is understood at this hour (9 o'clock) that the Senate will recede from the Sher man amendment to the kuklux bill. Washington, April 19? Midnight.? - After several recesses both Houses adjourned till 10# o'clock to-morrow. * The conference committee on the den WCttfeJ appropriations gtruefc but the clause rep"6antig'jftr&6,8 protfsb regarding Preai-, detetlaipardouf. ^ The Weather Report.

Views of Gov. Scott, Charleston, S. 0^' April 19.? The News to-day prints an extended Interview with Gov. Scott on the subject or the State finances and taxation, which lately caused such wide-spread agitation in the State. THE DEBT OP THE STATE. He declare! that the State debt had been grossly exaggerated, and the increase of the bonded debt mainly represents liabilities contracted by previous administrations ; that the railroad endorsements by the State afc amply protected by the actual assets of the road, and that the" entire bonded debt of South Carolina is less than ?8, 000, 000, with about $1,000,000 floating debt, which last will be paid immediately with funds now in the Treasury and with the incoming taxes. THE COLLECTION OP TAXES. J In says the object in changing the time of collection of the taxes is to insure their collection from the poorer classes, and should add ?200, (WO to the State revenue ; also, that an extension of time will be granted if required. The people, he says, are now pa ving the taxes with a unanimity and promptness that surprises him, and which deserved the highest praise and il lustrated their law-abiding character. THE COMING TAX-PAYERS' CONVENTION. Alluding to the Tax-payers' Convention called for next month by the Charleston Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade, he says the Convention will result in show ing the people that the State finances are in a healthy condition and the debt is as he has represented it. He hopes also that it would create a better feeling and reestab lish confidence by preparing the way to give a fair share of olfices in the State to men of ability and experience. lie pronounces in favor of minoritv rep resentation as the readiest cure for tfie ex isting grievances of the whites. He thinks the present moderate tone of the State press tends to obliterate the fears and pre judices of the Republicans, and considers that a large majority of the whites in the State, by accepting the constitutional amendments, are practically Republicans in all but the name. THE KTTKLUX. ? He expresses the belief that the aims of the kuklux are political, but thinks the operations of that organization are the surest means of strengthening and consoli dating the Republican party. The Governor says, in conclusion, that his future policy would be to disregard arty lines in making appointments, and e will be guided chiefly by considerations of personal fitness. Suicide.
