Brother, all things round arc calling
With united voice, "be strong!''

" Trust ia God, aud persevere."
From the Raleigh (X. C.) Key-Stone.
in the December number of the Key
stone, we called attention to the report
that tic^ro Lodges had bern established
at Newborn and ???ev?here underTthe ju
risdiction of the Grand L:dge of "New
York. Tili Grand Lodge bf -\ortii C-.w
edina, which held its annual communica
tion in this city in December, took cog
nisance ot' the subject, and we commend
to the utten ti ott of masons all over th.:
world, who feel an interest in negro ma
sonry, lite report elicited in the premises,
which appears in this L-sue ot' the Kty
Stone. This report was made by lue
chairman of the committee: Hoi. E.
Reade-who is now Grand Master of the
Grand Lodge of North Carolina-and it
lava hold of the subject with such foreh
and upon such high ground that it seems
to us the Fraternity everywhere will Rad
it difliouli'i to sut at naught tho arguments
presented. The subject, as well as wei!
as this report, is destined to attract con
siderable attention, and we especially
commend to our brethren who have de
sired or who may desire to fraternise ne
groes and white men of this country in
the close and confidential fellowship ol
masoary, thc propriety of laying thc sub
ject earnestly to heart-we commend it
lo all-and that none of us act in the
premises only in accordance with tho dic
tates of conscience and judgment com
bined. We sincerely trust that it will
not be made a cause of dissension and
Unpleasantness, and we hope, with a strong
inclination to thc opinion, that even
Grand Lodge in the United States will,
upon serious reflection, eudorse or adop.
the sentiments of our Most Worshipful
Grand Master, Judge l?c-'de.
REPORT OF THE COMMUTEE ON
NEGRO LODGES TO THE GRAND
LODGE OF NORTH CAROLINA.
The Most Worshipful Grand Master
called the attention of thc Grand Lodg^
to the follosving article from the Au g In
African, published in Now York, to wit:
" Past Most Worshipful Paul Drayton,
of thc National Graud Lodge, is about t"
resume his labors in the South, unde1 thc
authority of the Most Worshipful Grand
Lodgj of the State of New York. Ile
will leave this city in a few days, to dedi
cate and constitute Union Lodgo, in the
city of Charleston, S. C., and a Ki ny
Solomon Lodge in Nowberu, N. C., and
is also vested with full power to organist
Lodges throughout the Southern portion
of this country."
And attention was called also to the
following article in the Newbern, N. C.,
Daily Tinges, to wit :
- "There is, in this city, an organization
called Kipg Solomon's Lodge, No. 1, A.
P. M., composed entirely and exclusively
of negroes, lt was established hwe some
weeks ago. If it was done for the pur
pose of deriding Masonry, the joke falls
harmless ; b it if, ac thc paragraph above
given indicates,, (the extract from the
Aiigh Afria'.n,) there Li a determination
to confer upen the negroes of thc South
the rights aud benefits of this ancient and
honorable order, we look upon it as a
gross insult, which thc Grand Lodge of
thvi Suite of North Carolina should strong
ly protest against."
And thereupon the undersigned were
appointed a committee ^^investigate and
repoi t upon the subject. And the under
signed, having had thc matter under con
sideration, submit thc following report :
The committee have been unable In
barn anything mere of the facts than
arpear? in the extracts above. If those
facts bc trucr the Grand Lodge cf N. Y.
has sent an agent into tho Southern
States, "with lull power to organise
Lodges throughout the Southern portion
of tlie country."
Now upon thc supposition that such
Lodges are to be composed of members
worthy and well qualifiud, thc inquiry
would still be, " what right has the Grand
Lodge of N. Y. to organise Lodges with'h
the jurisdiction of other Grand Lodges/"'
The committee are of opinion that titere
is no such right. And, if insisted upon,
this Grand Lodgje would consider ns clan
destine all Lodges thus established.
The committee, anxious to find some
thing which would relieve our brethren
of N. Y. from what seems to be a breach
of that courtesy which so much distin
guishes Ma onie intercourse, have hope,
that it may turn out to bc true, that there
are still remaining in different portions, of
the South, N. Y. troop?, and that thc pur
pose is simply to organise military Lodges,
among such troops. If such be the pur
pose the committee concede its propriety.
And, so tar from complaining, would feel
gratified that our brethren who are absent
from their homes and local Lodges, should
have the advantages which Masons so
much desire, of organised communcica
But the committee are constrained to
say, with much concern, that the impres
sion made upon tbsm by a careful con
sideration of the aforesaid articles is, that
the'purpOse is not to organise military
't Lodges, but to " organise Lodges through
out the Southern, portion of the.country"
?snerally, and especially negro Zotiges.
nd this gives to Ure subject the gravest
The committee'do n?t.'ia'the' abstract,
question thc propriety of nSaJcing Masons j t
iii negroes. Our ancient landmarks aro j i
hat he that be made a Mason, must be I
iblc in all degrees; that is, Tree born, .1
vorthy, and well qualified, lt is not ne- (
:essarv that thc candidate should bc a 1
.vhilcman. We leach that in every peo- 1
pie masonry has existed. And to every 1
auxnan being our benevolence extends. I
But propriety, conformity to government, i
and, reasonably, to religion, and toman
ners and tustonis, have distinguished oar 1
Order. Our communications are ofte?
breast to breast, mouth to ear. Fellow
ship, in the sense of the most perfect
equality, intimate relationship, Mid close
communion, is the chief characteristic of
mir intercourse. We have our reasons^
for excluding females', minors, old agc,t?
religious libertines, the ru?dmod and disa
bled, thc ignorant, ilia immoral, and thc
profane. So import ant is this priuciplc
of perfect fellowship, that, although a
Lodge were composed of a thousand
members, one. single member rnay ex
clude a candidate with whom he cannot
have this perfect fellowship.
" If Masonry exists in Africa, and white
Mien were, f r any came, excluded from
the intimate relations which we have de
scribed, it would bc unwise to thrust
white .tuen upon thc fraternity in Africa,
lt would be very proper to inaugurate
measures tp remove the prejudice, but,
without such removal, to set it at defiance,
could have no other effect than to destroy
Masonry. So, here in the South, while
lhere is-no prejudice against the negro as
such, yet, thure is such pivjudice'agti;!^:
assuming the intimate relations of masonr,
that; to admit them to our Ord.:r, would
be, inevitably, to destroy it. Many rea-,
sons might be urged why it is so; but it
is sufUcient to know that the.fact exists.
And, while the fact existe, the introduc
tion of negroes into our Lodges, would
obliterate Masonry from toe South.
We know that Masonry is not t ..ly
close in fellowship, but, it is perfect in
morals, and ictricate in .-.ciei:**. And.
we know, that the negroes of the South
ari: wholly incompcte;'t '. : amhraoe it.
They tire ignorant, uneducated, im monti,
untruthful, and. intellectually, th*ey. are
moro impotent than minority or-dotage:
-both qf which we should exclude, lt
would be rare if any locality could fur
nish thc raiursite number of sufficient
capacity to ??pen a Lodge. Therefore, to
hr. ve Lodges cxcuisively of negroes, would
bo dangerous lo the high character of our
Order. Anti, lo assoeiae them in Lodges
with our white brethren, would be impos
It is only as macons that we have con
sidered this subject, und we hope lint it
is only as masons that our New York
brethren will consider it. While masons
conform themselves to governments, and,
reasonably, to manners and customs, yet,
they swerve not from the great object of
universal good. They arc not at all in
fluenced by partisan strife, or sectional
jealousies. Yet, we fear that our North
ern brethreH are in gross error, as to their
Masonic mission to thc South. Why
should the mission be to the South?
Why not to the negroes of the North?
We fear that they aro unconsciously im
bued with the spirit of fanaticism ;-that
they have unwholesome dreams that they
are better than tts. And wo do allow
ourselves to rest in the conviction, that
wi are more de.voU.-d to the best interests
of tho negroes of the. South; than they
can possibly be. They were born in oar
families ; wc have nursed them in sick
ness; labored with them in the field and
in the shop. We have rejoiced with them
when we had much, and suffered with
them when wc had little; wc have pro
tected them because they were weak, and
advised them because they were ignorant.
Wc have made them better than Africans,
and nearly equal to our Northern brethren
-themselves being judges-and, but for
fanaticism, doubtless many of them would
hive been worthy of masonic priv?ge?.
Our earnest desire now is, still further to
improve their condition. We would edu
cate them, improve their habits and man
ners, and make them industrious ar.d
provident. But, under some strang;-,
hallucination, our Northern brethren sup
pose that we are enemies of thc negro,
and that they are his friends. And they
spare no pains to make *hat impression
upon tlie negro, and thereby destroy his
confidence in us.. When and how did
their friendship manifest itself? Was it
when they caught them in Africa? Was
it when they sold them to us as slaves,
instead of liberating them in the North?
Waa it when they refused to allow them
emigration1 to the new and fertile lands,
and wholesome climate of our boundless
territory ? ls it when they exclude the
few that remain at the North from r^ery
decent and profitable employment, to live,
ia the iiith and eat thc garbage of the
city sewers? For be it known that cf
the few they have in the State of Nev
York 10,000 arc in the city of New York,
and how many upon Broadway ? And
be it further known, that in A. D. 1800
there were 40,700 negroes, (of whom 30,
000 were slaves,) in the State of New York,
and in A. D. 1S20 there were but 39,2'JO ;
what become of the 15C0? Atul why
w?s there no incroaso? In the same time
their white population increased' from
500,000 to 1.300,000, in round numbers.
Why did not lue. blacks increase also
three for one ? Why were there not 100,
000 more, instead of 1500 less, of the
black population .' How many of them
were made macons; How many died of
scorn and neglect? How many were
driven off by oppression? How immy
sold into slavery ? In A. D. 1300, there
were 140,000 negroes in North Carolina,
of whom 7,000 were free. In A. i).
1820, there were 220,000 Itegrocs, ol'
whom 14,000 were free. How favorable
the contrast for North Carolina. And
now they are all free. And, if their con
dition is-beater than wheu-tn Africa or
New York, it is because wc made them
so. Our Northern friends did not. They
so oppressed them that there was no in
crease ! With us they increase a? wo
increase. They sold them into slavery,
we emerge them itito liberty. They trek
ed them worse than brutes ; we have
made them not quite fit for masons. Why
will not our Northern brethn-n let them
alone? For what new mischief would
they smirk and smile around (hem ? Arc
not tho bayonet and the dollar and thc
trinket potent enough to enable thc-m io
effect their new colton enterprises with
the negro? Must they prostitute the
sacred rites and tonots of Masonry to
?iokly fanaticism; orto tho illegitimate
thrift of Ute capitalist on tho'one hand,
jr of thc degradation of thc negro on
;he other ? ls there no hole or corner of
he earth, where tho African can be free
rom their persecutions, by capture when
vild, and by deception and oppression
vhen tamc ? Jf they would catch them
gain lee them use the lasso in. the jungles '
?f Africa, rather than the masonic cable l
ow in North" Carolina.
Would our Northern brethren go tuto ! ]
he wilds of Africa and make, masons of j
avage??. .Wily nott. Because they"; are I
qt' worthy ianof ?well'' '^uoTiiiedi' ft ?jfey J
re .better qualified here than in Africa, j ,
; is because ve have made them so. Oat 1
view York brethren did not. If they ?Te

than tlie pinched up, stingy, si il ty, blatant
