::::::SEPT. 14, 1865. BATON THURSDAY,««::::: lifjT We had the pleasure of a call yes terday from oar friend R obert H all , for merly a typographical attaché of this and the Advocate office. We welcome him to the privileges of our establishment. S pecial N otice .—We are requested by Meurs. A rcher & H kndkrson , Commis sion and Forwarding Merchants, to give notice that they are prepared to receive cot ton on storage, and to ship the same when ever required by the planter to his factor in New Orleans. Mr. Wm. U akio , of this parish, is now associated with the above firm, and will give bis personal attention to all orders for receiving and forwarding which may be en trusted to him. C heap E noooh .—As will be seen, on re ferring to tho notice in to-day's paper of B abillier, P aban & L anue , those vendors of fresh meats iu our market, have agreed to furnish the public with good fresh and fat beef at the moderate retail price offen cents per pound, at their stalls; and butch ers will be furnished with the t;amo article at six cents net, wholesale. This comes of the healthy competition recently introduced among the butchers here—a competition which wo hope may long continue to the benefit of both butch ers and consumers. A National Masonic Convention. A CONVENTION CALLED TO MEST IN LOUI9 VILLR IN OCTOBER— APPEAL TO TUB MASONS OF THE IIN'ITJBB STATES—THE INFLUENCE G * MA80KRT TO TUA N yUIUZK THE COt'NTKT. To the Present and Past Chief Grand Officer* nf tbe Grand Lodge» and Grand Chapters of Ma soiiry of the United State« of America : Jl> other* and Companions —Four years ago, in common with others, 1 addressed you a circular, asking a convention of the representative men of the Order of Free masonry, to assemble for the purpose of consultation, and, if possible, of suggest ing some mode of assuaging the temper of the times and averting the horrors of eivil war, then opening upon our hitherto pros perou» and happy land. I then said that 1 believed that if there was "any body of mou who might form a nucleus around which tho peace-loving and peace-seeking conservatism of the nation might rally, you were that body of men;" that "you were not politicians, but patriots, loving your whole country, its glory and pros perity, and embracing the whole American people in the outstretched arms of an ex pansive love." I believed then, and still believe, that there was no necessity of drenching the land in fraternal blood, and that the sweeping besom might have been stayed. But the direct opposition of some, the indisposition of others, the inability to procure safe conduct, and the rapid pro gress of warlike movements, prevented the assembly. Since then, we have passed through the fiery ordeal and scathing power of the most terrible civil war which has afflicted any people. There is now a cessation of hostilities, and men »re no longer muster ing their energies to mighty and dire conflict. Various questions of an exciting char acter, however, remain to be settled, or continuo to augment the chafed animosi ties of the nation. Those will require tho utmost wisdom and energies of a high and noble statesmanship, and if that shall bo wanting onr whole people must yet expe rience the bitter results of misrule, never again to be united in heart, and in the universal patriotic desire of building up a great nation worthy of the love and ad miration of our own and other populations. Instead of a common desire to pursue peaceful avocations and to cherish per petual emulation for the universal good, we will exhibit little eine than a miserable and constant struggle for domineering mastery. In the war which we have passed thou sands have perished; thousands maimed and half must be pensioners upon indi vidual and national bounty, and multi tudes have been bereft of affluence and plunged iuto wretched poverty, even to the loss of the great necessaries of life food, raiment and shelter. Tho ruin and desolation of many districts of country, before as fair as ever the tmn shono upon, have been most dire, and all have been more or less injuriously affected—if not in tho direct ravages of strife, it has been in onerous public debt and burdens, in vitia tion of moral character, in diminution of i education, in deterioration #f industrial labor, and in suudering tho bonds of unity and pampering sectional animosities. Whilst many are hopeful that what they consider great evils have been swept away, and entertain high hopes of futuro unin terrupted progress, many others are en tertaining gloomy forebodings that tho days of the purity of tho Republic are passed away forever. Very many are experiencing the bitter ness of a radical change in society. Many, steeped in povorty, are groaning under the weight ol misfortune, and the fearful look ing forward to what is yet to come. They are at least bowed down and lowly. The wail of the widow and orphan is heard far and near, and the signal of distross is up raised everywhere. What is to become of all this? Will it work wrong, oppression and general ruin, or will it renovate, elevate, and lift high , ^ ***a^A 11A w Jli£U :ip above all others our former great, mag nifloent and happy country ? j To restore the country, or to advance it j high above its former prosperous and ' honored position, ought to be considered ! the grateful duty and exalted privilege of every man and order of men within its j broad territory. Especially so should it ; be considered by those who are peculiarly taught that they should bo true to their j Government and just to their country, at | every stage of their progress, from the ; portico to the innermost recess of the ; «rand temple of human happiness. | There is a work for us to do. We may cot stay our hands and fold our arms, while a great moral and social revolution in progressing among us, which must re dound in general good or general evil. Warn«. _ » 1 .1 . e may not see our brethren in anguish ; and distress, and hear their bitter cry, and j retuse to bring them deliverance. Years ago i wrote what I then believed was I truth—plain, palpable truth—and is as true now as then, and I beg leave to quote from an address on Masonry : "Oar order lias been guided steadilv on ward by it« owii bright star of fellowship, luminously emitting from every point the warm and cheering rays of brotherly love; yet it has never failed to embrace all hu manity in the outstretched arms of uni versal benevolence. We have thought our country and tho world was one great neighborhood, and that wo should 'love our neighbor as ourselves'—not with a feoiing that wastes its life in u signing, sickly sentimentality, but which exhibit» itself, as occasion niay present, in useful and ameliorating activity. In the depart ment we prescribed for ourselves much may be accomplished in exemplifying our doctrines of morality and the exercise of a heaven-born charity which is ever going about doing good. I know of nothing in life more consoling to the feelings, more delighful to the confidence, or more noble in man than doing good to others in the various forms of relief which may be sug gested to our sympathie». It is not only noble, but godlike, to lift up the lowly, the weary, and the forlorn in life's great high way. When John tho Baptist sent a mes senger to Jesus, to know if he were the Chriwt, Jesus replied, 'Go tell John that the »ick uro healed, tho leper is cleansed, the lame walk, the blind see, the dead are brought to life, tiHd the poor have the Gospel preached to them. This power, exercised, in benevolent acts, was his argu ment to prove his divinity. Let ns then contribute in an increased degree our as sistance in all earnest undertakings in be half of those who may need onr kind offices, and manifest that we possess not merely the show of philanthropy, but that with us it is an active, living sentiment. In all things that may tend to the ame lioration of our own race, let it be to our order a'crown of rejoicing,' that, whilst others are bringing their contributions, we have not been a whit behind tho chief est of all. By thus doing good to others, and being good ourselves, we bear about us the sweet reflection that, like the sun in the physical world, our institution, ven erated for its hoary antiquity and esteemed for its excelloncios, is distributing, every where in the social aud moral world, light and warmth and peace and joy and bliss. "If our great doctrine of fraternity, jus tice in magnanimity and mercy, univeisal benevolence and pure charity, were only generally comprehended in all their bear ings, and felt as sentiments beneficent and active, and realized in actions, what a change would come over this world. If thi» could occur iu an instant it would be like that efl'uigenco which burst upon the darknesB of chaos when God »aid, 'Let there be light." The trumpet would no longer be heard summoning hostile and belligerent»quadrons to the field of carnage and death, but the songs of the affections, in soft and dulcet strains, would regale the ear of smiling and contented peace with their sweet and liquid melody. The mad and restless spirit of selfish ambition would n<j longer stiuggle for preferment and ag grandisement at the sacrifice of probity and honor, but a noble emulation would incite all to make most valuable contribu tions to the general welfare.(Envy, malice, hatred, anger and revenge would go howl ing down to their native hell, and friend ship,sympathy and lov» would so harmon ize mankind as to lift th»m up to as high an elevation as human power could effect and would proclaim in songs of rejoicing a perennial and uni versai jubilee." You, brethren, are a body of representa tive men of an order, which is and should be dedicated to these high callings, and, as such, 1 propose to you to assemble at some central locality at an early day, for the pur pose ol consultation upon our duties and responsibilities in the present state of af fairs of a common country and society. I would suggest the second Monday in Oc tober, at Louisville, as the time and place. \ ou will, of course, convene not as poli ticians, ambitious ol place aud power ... . . • . ... . mastery, buta» patriot»and humanitarians ftrtYimiM All It? In ram f-/Lf» hnvtrinnn anxious only to restore harmony, pacifica tion, unity, order and amelioration, upon principles consistent with the magnanim ity, moderation, honor and dignity of the highest civilization and Christianity. If yon should thus assemble with hearts and minds intent upon the high objects in dicated, you may achieve much. Separ ated, you can accomplish little; but, as *ociated,you may perhaps agree upon some mode of action which will redound in im mense benefit. Upon calm, dispassionate and kindly conference and discussion, the chances greatly favor the presumption that yon may advise and proclaim some just, liberal and elevated propositions upon which all may unite in adjustment and amelioration. 11 so, the grand desired ob jects may be tranquilly and honorably and magnanimously achieved, and you may have the consolation of being great contri- j butors to a great and general good. It j would be to you a permanent happiness, and the rulers of the land and the people 1 and posterity will rise up and with one i heart call you blessed. I trust 1 shall hear from all quarters the ! gratifying news that the proposition I j make meets your hearty concurrence. Yours, fraternally, CllAS. C. wlntkbsmith. j P. G. M. and P. (jr. H.

J.'iwitvilU Journal, , 1ST A party of ladlos from Newport, Pa., went out a few days since to gather whortleberries. One of them placed her little child on a flat stone near where she was picking the berries. Shortly after a dog, which accompanied the party, set up a loud barking around the child, and smelling at the edge of the stono. The child was taken away and the stone turned over, when a large rattlesnake was found under it. The dog attacked the snake, was bitten, and died shortly after. 2SfT° The Savannah Herald don't believe newspaper correspondent» are doing much for authentic history : "A large body of them cannot be deemed better than paid slanderers, who are corrupting the sources of intelligence, and injuring public moral« by the violation of those lesser moralities which owe their existence te the purity of the press.
