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

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

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

night, and all day Monday, r;;#as followed
by an ominous calm Monday night, which
was broken shortly after daylight Tuesday
morning by the insurgents. The fight lasf
ed all day with little advantage being gained
by cither side, every inch of ground being
contested on both sides with determined
vigor. The. houses were on fire in various
parts of the town, and the inhabitants had
sought shelter in cellars, where many of
them, including women and children, were
burned to death. Toward night the Na
tionals, from some unknown cause, became
panic-stricken and fled precipitately to
wards Paris, leaving their dead and wound
ed lying thick in the road.
The Government forces did not follow
THE EXODUS FROM TARIS.
The wildest excitement prevails iri Paris,
and the inhabitants are leaving by thou
sands, the road to St. Denis being choked
with fugitives. All the churches are closed,
but the 'war on sacred edifices still contin
ues, and the priests are daily being insult
ed and imprisoned. Almost cverv church
in tbe city has been pillaged. Provisions
are more plentiful and still coming into the
city by the northern and eastern roads.
A PROGRAMME OF COMPROMISE.
Paris, April 19.? A programme, which,
it is suggested, meets the general approval
of tbe people ot Paris, provides for the
maintainance of the Republic, granting
communal rights to Paris and other cities :
the dissolution of the Assembly, and elec
tion of a National Communal Representa
tive Assembly instead ; the formation of ad
interim governments at Paris and Ver
sailles ; the declaration of a general am
nesty for all Offences against the Govern
ment ; and the signing of an armistice.
The insurgents admit a repulse at Neu
illy, but claim victories at Clamart and
Gen. Okelow succeeds Gen. Dombrow
ski's brother, who was disabled at Asniers.
? THE MILITARY SITUATION.
London, April 19.? A dispatch from As
niers, via Versailles, says the weather is
rainy, and operations to-day are next to
impos-ible ; but adds that " the insurrec
tion is falling to pieces."
A dispatch from Paris also confirms the
fact that the fighting and cannonading is of
small account, on account of tbe weather,
but there has been much moving of troops.
Paris, April 19.? The markets are badly
supplied, beef bringing one shilling a pound
on" the hoof.
The Commune journals recommend that
the Imperial mummies be removed from
Al. Rocbefort says that he has trustwor
thy information that negotiations of a semi
official character are proceeding.
A special dispatch says the insurgents
met with a severe repulse Tuesday. Heavy
defensive works have been erected at As
nieres in the last few davs, and the position
of the insurgents is believed by their gen
erals to be safe. Strong barricades have
been erected, armed with mitrailleuses, at
the railway stations, and another was
thrown up last night to prevent an attack
from the Charlebourg road. The Colorube
road is protected by barricades of paving
stones, covercd with earth two yards thick,
and 800 hundred yards long. Seven armor
plaied locomotives, armed with American
mitrailleuses, are ready along the railway.

Both Houses tire in session to-night, with

WiaaiHOTOif. April Id*? Probabilities js It
Is probable that the storm will move north
eastward and tbat the winds will abate on
the lower lakes. Clear and partially cloudy
weather Is probable for Thursday on the
South Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
The reports for the past twenty-four
hours show, that the storm centre has
moved slowly from west' of Iowa to St.
Paul's, Minn. Threatening weather, with
a falling barometer, has been experienced
on the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, which is
now generally succeeded by clearinpr-up
weather. Rain has fallen north of the Ohio
and on the lakes eastward to Ontario. i A
severe northeast gale has continued, but is
now abating on Lake Superior.
The Nonth Carolina Taxation Iron*
ble*? 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.
? 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.
