WOODSTOCK, VAr.
THURSDAY, JUNE 28,....,.18GG.
Local Department
Masonic Procession.
Tin* festival of St. Jolm tho Haptist falling upon
Sunday, Saturday the 23d of June was observed
by llunter Lodge, at Edinburg, instead of the 24th.
We had the pleasure of being present and par
ticipating in the proceedings, and will endeavor
to give a brief synopsis of what took place for the
benefit of the order generally .
After attending to business matters in the Lodge,
the fraternity, including visiting brethren from
other Lodges, proceeded to the Herman Reformed
Church, where the procession was formed, at 10
o’clock, under the direction of II. II. lliddleberger,
of Hunter Lodge, chief marshal, assisted by N.
Fountain,- of Cassia and Charles Keyser of Lafay
ette Lodge. 1’ortlons of the Strasburgand Wood
stock bands marched in front, discoursing most ex
cellent and anil-stirring music, appropriate to the
occasion.
After marching through the main streets, the
procession proceeded to the beautiful grove a few
hundred yards southwest of town, where the most.
mnnlejivcparati<#ns had been made for the accum
auodaUonoT the Thtxenntv ami me citizens gen
ially.
■» .Several hundred ladies and gfn (lemon. from ev
ery part of the county, and some from adjoining
counties, had preceded the procession and were
awaiting its arrirai.
The services in the grove were introduced by
prayer by Uev. .1. 1\ Ilyde, chaplain of Cassia
Lodge. The P. \V. M. ot'Hunter Lodge, lb JMill
er, then installed the officers elected for the ensu
ing year, assisted by the W. JI. of Cassia Lodge,
•J. Haas, as follows .
J. \V. Windle, W. M.;
Jno. S. Hutchinson, S. W.$

H. II. luddleherger, Sec.;
dim. 11. Miller. S. ]).;
Samuel Vance, J. 1).:
L. \V. drove, S. and T.
P. W. M. Miller then introduced Uev. J. P.
Hyde to the audience, wh >delivered an address of
about an hour’s duration, wi.h replete interesting
masonic history, happy and forcible illustration,
and sound and logical reasoning. Indeed, for the
edification oP the eager and attentive assemblage,
the speaker divulged many of those beautiful and
instructive '•secrets.” so-called, that have adorned
the institution of Masonry in all ages of the world.
His cogent reasons why the ladies were not ad
mitted as “working members” of Masonic Lodges
wore peculiarly felicitous, and must have given
satisfaction to all present. Put as it is probable this
address will be laid before the public in a more
tangible form, we shall not attempt to discuss its
merits at length here.
After music by the band. U. C. l’ragonier, Esq.,
was introduced by P. W. M. Miller, and deliver
ed a most chaste and eloquent address, in which
the principles and tenets of the institution of Ma
sonry were discussed in a most lucid and satisfac
tory manner. When we consider that the speak
nr is a young Mason, and has had but limited
means for obtaining information upon so vast and
sublime a theme, this address was highly credita
ble to the young orator. Indeed, it would have
W reflected honor upon more exponenccdTTearts! "]
The singingof that most beautiful and inspiring j
production, “Hums’ Adieu,” by several of the
brethren, concluded the ceremonies in the grove.
The procession was again formed and returned
t<> town, to the hotel of brother P. F. Murray,
where the fraternity, numbering considerably ov
er one hundred, and a large number of gentlemen
and ladies, partook of a most sumptuous dinner.
Our energetic landlord seems to have made the
“whole boundless continent” tributary to him mi
this occasion ; for his ample tables literally groan
ed benefiti their choice viands. The garnered
wealth Sfthe land, the most choice contents of the
storehouse, the bountiful productions of the field,
and the most tempting delicacies of the garden—
these were ail brought in requisition to add to the
magnificence of the rich repast. Indeed, time
would fail to enumerate all the good things that
graced the festive board.
For awhile, at least. ‘
inoculative Masonry
was laid aside, and ail devoted themselves to tile i
pleasant and refreshing labor so necessary for the I
reeuia ration of the exhausted energies of the out- I
ward man. And right heartily was this work per
formed. N\ hole columns of meats and vegetables
end pyramids of cakes disappeared before the
• working tools’* of these ‘‘'operative Masons” like I
snow before the melting rays c.f the sun. Fair
hands were busy, in the meantime, in the con
stant preparation of such things as were needed,
end the waiters, among whom we noticed our old
triends, lien Hamilton and Hob .Newman, were
assiduous in their attention to the guests.
Alter dinner, the craft were summoned to the
Kef. Church for the purpose of taking such action
as is customary—the adoption of resolutions of
thanks, the appointment of committees to wait up
on the orators, Ac.
Jn addition to the brethren belonging to Wnod
stocK ami Edinburg Lodges, there was a good at
tendance from Luray and .’New Mai ket, and a few
transient members of distant Lodges.
The entire proceedings of the day passed off
pleasantly and agreeably to all parties. May we I
.all huig lie*- to enjoy such “happy greetings.” -If
the political world i; awry and in < haotic disorde -,
tlie brethren of the “mystic tie” are going through
the process of ‘'‘reconstruction” in a manner that
should put to shame the less pliable material oft! e
‘‘reconstructionists,” so-called, whose fruitless la
bors cast a dark shadow over the “land we love.”
The Wheat Crop.
For the information of our readers we copy from
pur exchanges sucli articles as seem to give most
correct information concerning the crops of wheat
now being harvested. The general and concur
rent opinion is, among the well informed farmers,
that the superior quality of the grain this year
will make the crop almost equal to that of last sum
mer.
We have recently conversed with several gentle
men from Page county, and they assure us that
the crop in that county, upon an average, is much
more promising than it is in (bis section.
We do not recollect ever having seen wheat more
thoroughly matured ami filled than it is in this
county ; and it is therefore certain that the sup
ply will be larger than was anticipated earlier in
the season. In fact, as is too frequently the ease,
oar poeplc were more badly scared than hurt.
Valuable Land for Sale.
We call attention to the advertisement of Wal
ton ami Uirtl, (Jommissionei s, for the sale of some
very valuable land, located in this county.

Woodstock Seminary.
. The semi-annual examination of llic pupils in
(his institution took placeou Thursday last, in the
presence of some oftke trustees and patrons of the
school. There had been no special preparation
lor these exercises}ns is generally customary for
such occasions, but the \ariotis classes were exam
ined promiscuously upon the different branches
taught, embracing sueb questions as those conduc
ting the examination saw proper to propound.—
Those studying the higher branches—Latin, Math
ematics, Dictation, &c.— particularly distinguish
ed themselves. This we say without intending any
disparagement of those in the primary classses.
The promptness and correetnes with which most
of the questions propounded were answered by
the pupils, who could not have anticipated their
character, shows that the instruction must have
been thorough and the manner of imparting it a
daptert to the capacities of the children ; that it
was plain, practical and comprehensive. M i ny "of
our most learned teachers lack this happy faculty
of imparting to others the knowledge which they
possess. This faculty is parti3' natural, but acquires
its full development by long and patient pratice.
The principals of this institution, Mtftsrs. Gra
bill and Magruder, we think, have shown that
they are eminently quaified.for the position, and
we therefore take pleasure in commending their
school to the patronage of tlnyco in nihility.
•The Male Academy.
This building is in smnost dilapidated
condition. DuringAhffiy nrT and since its
termination, the occupied. by
federal soldiers. The windows and win
dow frames, floors, benches, desks, all
have been destroyed, and the basement
has been used for the basest of purposes.
The trustees have no funds on hand to
make the necessary repairs, and unless
something is soon done, it must become an
utter wreck. Would it not be well to lease
the building to some person, or association,
who will repair it and use it for some bet
ter purpose than it is now devoted to? The
upper story is used by the masonic fratern
ity, and perhaps an arrangement could be
made with them to save* the building from
destruction.
i Important,\otice.
J The Clerk of this county, Mr. Fravcl,
has received from the Governor of the
State a circular, requesting him to for
ward to certain parties in Richmond, the
names of all persons residing in the county
who have lost limbs during the war, or
from any other cause, we presume, with
full description of the character of the in
juries resulting from such loss. It is the
design of the proper authorities to take
sush measures as will be necessary for
supplying limbs to this unfortunate class.
Those interested will therefore report at
once to Mr. Fravcl, in order that lie may
report them as requested.
The Exhibition.
The attention of our citizens is called to
the notice of tin/ Exhibition to be given .
by the tTIc Academy in this
place, on jl-At!ay evening next in the
Methodist church. Wc feel safe in prom
ising those who may be present a rich in
tdlcctual feast. The fee for admission is
trifling, yet, if Our citizens generally Avill
contribute a mite, a sum suflicieut to make
all needed repairs to the Seminary prop
erty may be realized. This is an object
that must commend itself to our warmest
approbation and support.
Haste to Hie Wedding.
As faithful chroniclers of what is going
on in our midst, we note the marriage, on
Sabbath last, in this place, by Rev. J. 1\

in that place, which had been greatly injured and
defaced by the soldiers in (lie various armies that
occupied the Valley during the war. This is a
most laudable and praiseworthy object, and will
douhtles he sufficient to say nothing of the rich
intellectual treat that may be expected in the ex
hibition.
