thorough discipline in every phase ol their du?

-The New York Tribune comes round to
the view upon what we have long insisied as

Slates over those of the far West as a point of
emigration for Northern settlers. It is at the
pains to deny that it urges everybody to fly
from the East to the West, Irom the cities to
the country, and there engage in farming.
So far Irom urging all to migrate westward,
we are told it has over and again insisted that
lands are quite as cheap and inviting, all things
considered, in the South, and even in the less
donsely peopled portions ol New Jersey, Dela?
ware and Maryland, as they will average in
the West. For organized colonization, the
South, it ls thought, affords equal scope with
-General Sherman was cordially received
iu N^w Orleans the other day, by one of the
clubs ot that city. He made a brief but happy
speech, In which be relerred to the fact thal
he had ;;nce held a commission as colonel ot
militia- ot the State ol Louisiana, and that be
was one?; at the head ot the State Seminary.
He said that lt always gave him pieasure to
visit Louisiana, and to meet not only the mem?
bers of thc Union army, but also his old friends
upon the other side. "General Bragg und I,"
enid tn? general, "are close friends, and I
know General Beauregard very well, but I
have uot. und the pleasure of meeting him this
time. General Hood called upon me to-day,
and I Intend to call upou him to-morrow." lu
alluding to the matter ol 'ecoustmctiou, Gen?
era. Sherman said that it was a most delicate
and dilllculc problem to solve. Euglau" has
been endeavoring to reconstruct Scoiland Tor
two hundred years, and still who cuuld fail to
detect the marked characteristics ol a Scotch?
man. If a people liked tu have laws made for
them, they liked to have something io do with
the making of them themselves. In time, he
thought, the people of the South would fume
around all right, out they wauteu it lo be seen
that the work ot reconstruction einauaied from
themselves. His remarks were received with
-The New York Sun says: "Mr. H. B.
Clatliu, he head of the great drm ol H. B.
Claflln & Co., has just lett this city on a tour
through a portion of the South. He will visit
Baltimore, Washington, Richmond, Wilming?
ton, Charleston, Savannah, Moble and New
Orleans-will spend a short time in Florida to
see some relatives on the way. When the re?
bellion broke out in 1861, Mr. Claflin's house,
enjoying a large Southern trade, had a million
dollars in debts against Southern merchants.
After the war was over in 1865, these debtors
came to New York and received a generous wel?
come from Mr. Claflln. They were Informed
that they could make their own terms respect?
ing the payment of the old debts, and should be
kindly dealt with in the future. This policy
proved as wise as It was generous. With com?
paratively lew exceptions this large amount of
old debts has been extinguished, and the mer?
chants of the South deal with Mr. Claflin's
house more extensively than ever. The influ?
ence which has gone out from that establish?
ment has contributed largely to harmonize
sectional feeling, and restore to the whole
country a healthy condition of affairs. The
extended business of Claflin & Co. can be es?
timated by the'fact that the transactions of this
3lngle house in one year now exceed In
amount these of all the dry goods houses of
the city thirty years ago. This is the first visit
of Mr. Claflln to the South, and we bespeak
for him such a cordial reception as is due not
only to the greatest, but the mo3t liberal
among our dry goods merchants'"
Death of James SI. Mason,
In the death of James M. Mason, the coun?
try loses one of those solid old-time states?
men, of whom but few indeed are left to ns.
Mr. Mason was by no means so brilliant as
many of bis colleagues, but there was about
him a respectability which is always attrac?
tive, and is actually inspiring when observed
through the haze of corruption which now
euvelops the General Government. Mr. Ma?
son was born on Aualoston Island, Fairfax
County, Virginia, November 3, 1798. He
received a good education, and graduated
at the University of Pennsylvania in 1818.
He studied law al the College of William and
Mary, and obtaiaed a license to practice in
1820. In 1S2G ne was elected to the House
of Delegates, and was twice re-elected. He
was a Presidential elector in 1833, and was
a Repr?sentative in Congress from 1837 to
1S39 In 1847 he was elected a senator in
Congr35s1n the place of Senator Peunyback
er, and re-elected in 1849, in which position
he continued until 1861, having for several
sessions been chairman of the committee on
foreign relations. He went with the South
in 1SG1, was sent to England as Minister of
the Southern Confederacy, was captured by
the San Jacinto, imprisoned in Fort Warren,
ami, after his release, took up his residence
ia Europe. After the war closed he return?
ed to the United States, nod has siace led a
retired life. He quits the world uucheered
by the realizatioo of his political dreamt,.
But he leaves behind him a great circle of
friends, a large aad admiring family, and
perhaps not a single enemy who will refuse
him his claim to the distinction of having
led a conscientious and an unstained career.
Masonry In Politics.
One of the most singular circumstances
connected with the Paris disturbances is the
appearance of the brethren of the mystic tie
upon the ramparts of the beleaguered city.
They have interviewed the government offi?
cials at Versailles; aod DOW, having failed
to secure such conditions as were deemed
by them to be acceptable and opportune,
they have returoed and announced their re?
solve to plant the banners of the Order on
the outer wall. What part they intend to
take, the telegrams leave in doubt or mis?
represent. One dispatch represents them a3
ia friendly correspoodence with the Com?
mune; another of the same date (April 2S)
represents them as irritated against the me?
tropolitan leaders. The fact probably is, that
they have undertaken the office of peace?
makers; that, as is apt to be the case when
the passions of rival parlies have been em?
bittered, they have failed to satisfy the ex?
tremists on either side, and that in the su?
preme struggle that is to decide the fate of
the city, they will display the insignia of the
Order and make a final effort to arrest the
effusion of blood.
The desigu is, very likely, a purely philan?
thropic one. Yet it is ill-advised for all tbat,
as is evident already from the fact that both
parties are claiming the political support of
the Order. With groat wisdom the aonsti
tution of the Craft has forbidden political or
! sectariao discussions in the lodges. The
probihitioa cannot be violated without en?
dangering the existence of the institution. I
And it is manifest that an endeavor to inter?
pose between Thiers who leads the govern?
ment and favors the church, and Blanqui
who lights the government and suiters the
church to be outraged, necessitates among
the brotherhood the most animated discus?
sions in regard to Church and State.
The result of such a perversiou of the de?
signs of Masonry was exhibited in Mexico in
the year 1825, and subsequently wheo the
Scotch Lodges under the^direction of aristo?
cratic politicians, and tho Democratic York
Lodges under the direction of Mr. Poinsett,
divided society, and at last fomented civil
war. At the same time the Morgan excite?
ment prevailed in that country, and in many
of the States Masonic und anti-Masonic tick?
ets were run both iu the local and federal
eic-ctions. We believe that it will now be
generally admitted on all sides that these
conflicts ellected DO good whatever. The
disciples of Hiram Abifl' maintained their
lodges, as they had a right to tlo, and the
politicians turned their attention to matters
which coi cerned the welfare of the country
Whether rightly or not we caunot say;
but certainly the impression prevails in
many high places iu Europe that the conti
ueutal brotherhood are ia alliance with the
Illuminati and Carbonari, the opponents of
the present ecclesiastical and political estab?
lishments. In Catholic countries they of ne?
cessity bold theuiselve3 aloof from the com?
munion of the altar. Under what are known
as personal governments, they ure suspected
simply because they are a secret fraternity.
On either account the interposition between
the political and military combatants at
Paris, however well intentioned, was ill
advised. "The banner with its strange de
"vice" wa3 not made to be lifted in the lurid
itlare, or borne through the rolling smoke, or
dipped iu ihe crimson tides of battle.
