Masonic Literature.
We publish tigs week, on our first
tane, "The Mason' Widow," from
the pen of Bro. Moore, of the Ma
sonic Review, a work that only costs
$2 00 per annum. How so many of
the Craft can admit such a magazine is
published in their own country! and
not subscribe for it, is more than we
can account for, unless it be from
sheer indifference to the principles of
the Order. The magazine teems with
such choice Literary productions as
the one we copy. We ask for "The
Mason's Widow" a careful perusal in
hopes it may strengthen the brethren in
that true friendship and eAary,whicli

Arrest for Robbery of Letters.
The firm referred to in the following
is Messrs. Williams J- Guion, 40 Ful

the Department, to whose vigilance
and address the public are indebted for
the arrest, is J. Holbrook, of New

some which had been mailed at Colum

A young man in the employ of a
well-known and respectable firm, en

Saturday morning last, by the special
agent of the Post OlEce Department,
in purloining money letters addressed
to the firm, received from different
points through the mails, and delivered
through their box at the post office.
For several months past, complaints
have reached the post office here, thro'
the firm, as well as from their corres
pondents, of losses of letters contain
ing remittances to them, and to their
rare. Suspicions having been enter
tained for some time that these depre
dations were committed by some one
in their employ, an acenrate list was
kept at the box delivery of all letters
delivered, when it was discovered that
tjuite a number of the letters thus de
livered failed to reach them. Tha par-

watched and traced on bis way from
the post office to the place of business
of the firm, by the special agent, when
he was soon to break open one of the
letters and abstract money therefrom.
The money was subsequently found
upon bis person, and also the letter in a
mutilated condition.
We learn that he has made a con
lession, by which it is satisfactorily
shown that scores of missinz money
letters directed to his employers have
been taken by him.
Many .of the losses now explained
were sustained by 'persons in humble
condition of life, and some of them of
a peculiarly distressing character.

Temperance Movement in McArthur.
thur. .
Pursuant to previous notice, the
friends and advocates of temperance in
the Village of Mc Arthur and vicinity,
met in the M. E. Church, on the eve
ning of the 4th inst., to devise means,
and adopt measures, to suppress the il
legal traffic in intoxicating liquors,
which, of late, has been so alarmingly
on the increase, in said Village anJ
vicinity. At a very early hour the
house was filled to overflowing. Tits
ent were to be seen the Merchants, Me
chanics and Professional men of the
Village; a I no, the sturdy and honest
farmers of the surrounding country, all
of whom had quit their ordinary la
bors and pursuits at an early hour, and
resorted thither for the purpose of ma
king a united effort in ridding, our oth
erwise peaceable & growing village of
the Lligliti i' :u.l Jfinoraliziiig curse of
intemperance; and it is worthy of re
mark that a goodly number of the la
dies of the village, notwithstanding the
inclemency of the evening.quitted their
parlors and pleasant firesides and graced
the meeting wijh their presence, there
by lending countenance and giving en
couragement to the philanthropic and
laudable undertaking.
Whereupon, the meeting was organ
ized by calling L. G. Drown to the
chair, and appointing John P. Ply ley,
Secretary. The chairman having sta
ted the object ol the meeting, the exer
cises of the evening were opened by
prayer from the Rev. Nathaniel West-
erman, wlio also imerestea ana instruc
ted the audience by a short lecture, in
the course of which, he dweali upon
the demoralizing tendencies of intent
perance, demonstrated that it was 8
fruitful source of crime, wretchedness,
disease, and death; that burthensome
taxation was one of its necessary and
unavoidable concomitants; and in short,
that it was a reproach to any commu
nity, and that it was fast proving such
to Mc Arthur, and concluded by an
earnest and eloquent appeal to the
friends of the cause, to immediately
bring into requisition the means pro
vided tor suppressing the traffic.
Mr. D. J. Edwards, of Cincinnati,
was then called to the stand, and made
a few very pertinent and well-timed
remarks. David Jones, Esq.. also ad
dressed the meeting to some length and
in a very appiopriate manner.
On motion it was ordered that the
chair appoint a committee of three to
wait on those engaged in the illegal
sale of intoxicating liquors in the vil
lage and vicinity, and in a iriendly and
becoming manner request them to do-,
sist therefrom, and report at next meet
ing. Jacob anocsey, u. w. uenni
son, and Jno. P. Plyley, were appoin
ted as said committee.
On motion a subscription paper was
circulated to raise funds to defray the
expenses of prosecutions against all
those who continue to sell in violation
of law, within Elk township; which
resulted in raising some 600, which
has since been increased to $800.
On motion the meeting adjourned to
meet on Monday evening next.

on and responded by a few well-jimed
and appropriate remarks.
The committee appointed at the pre

visited the persons engaged in selling
intoxicating liquors contrary to law,
that they found four persons thus en
gaged in the illegal traffic, that they
received but little assurance that the
traffic would be abandoned by them.

Dowd, and E. F. Bingham, were ap

Austrian Treaty.
We give the followinz svnoDsis ol
the much talked-of treaty between
Allies ana Austria: By the second
article Austria pledges herself to defend
the frontiers of the- Princioalities
against the return of the Russians, and
con?ents to the formation of a mixed
commission for the regulation ot all
exceptional and disputed points arising
out of i:s occupation bv her trooDs:
and by the third, the powers mutually
pledge themselves to sustain Austria in
the event of hostilities breaking out
between that power aud Russia. It is
clear that the contingency provided for
by the last mentioned article is not
likely to arrive unless that contempla
ted in the previous one should come to
pass. For the present, Russia will
take care to avoid eivin the stipula
tions of the treaty force by entering
the Principalities, and therefore Aus
tria will still be virtually enabled to
preserve her neutrality, although osten
sibly committed to the alliance. The
object of the treaty, -as far as she is
concerned, appears to be only to gain
time: and in this respect she seems to
us to be still playing into the hands of
Russia. The tenor ot the document
is not, on the whole, one that is calcu
lated to reassure the public mind in
England and France.
It would, therefore, seem that, the
interpretation given to this treaty ; by
ijord jonn Kussei is me correct one;

Royal Bridal Festivities is Prus

barbarities. One count, high in mod
ern dignities, was appointed to have
the honor of handing the king soup at
dinner, and another of handing him the
wine; other nobles were to render a
similar service to the queen, and oth
ers still to the bridal pair. When the
soup and the wine ale disposed of,
dancing commences, and the king and
queen, bride and bridegroom, the Min
ister of State, and all the royal family,
