WIUVTIK GTON EXPOSITOR.

Democratic Anti-masonic Candidate
FOR PRESIDENT,
WILLIAM WIRT,
KAivun.
POR VICE PRESIDENT
AMOS ELLMAEER,
PK*jr«rT.vAi«iA.
Ov^We would respectfully remind those of our sub
scribers, who are disposed to pay their subscription in
advance, that the time for doing so, will shortly ex
pire. Early payment therefore, by those to whom it
may be convenient, will be thankfully received.
In to-day's paper will he found the letters of Judge
Rochester, and Mr. P. B. Porter, in reply to a letter
addressed to them, by Messrs. Potter, Follet, Camp,
Townsend, and Barker; concerning the subject of ma
sonry. Those two distinguished individuals have fully
and explicitly avowed their sentiments concerning ma
sonry,—and sentiments, which will ere long univer
sally prevail amongst the wise and good of every sect
And denomination.
The doleful cry of «* Persecution and Proscription " :
may echo from every Lodge in the Union, hut the
sound will be suppressed by the triumphant shouts of
"Long live liberty and Equality," whose immortal and
immutable principles shall recieve the praise, sanction
und protection of every honest freeman, when the ve
ry recollection of " secret midnight conclaves "
will be erased from the human mind.
Why do our opponents, when speaking of Anti
sonrv, persist in calling it " proscription and persecu
tion?" Have we not in word and deed given a satis
factory refutation of those fabricated allegations? Must
not every unprejudiced mind be convinced, that "lib
erty and equality" form the basis of our opposition
secret associations? All v/e ask, is an abjuration of
the blasphemous , illegal, immoral .unnatural and de
grading oaths of Freemasonry—a renunciation of
sonic allegiance. This concession, and this alone, can
satisfy the Anti-masonic party, and regain their confi
dence. To acknowledge and renounce our errors, is
an obligation we owe to both God and man, and is con
sequently a duty of the highest earthly character.
The principles and practices of masonry nave been so
fully and correctly disclosed, that wc can easily form
a just estimate of the character of the institution. We
lnow that the antiquity, religion, science, &c.,'ascri
bed to masonry, are fictitious, and that ils basis are er
ror and delusion. We know, that intelligent men,
who have bcch initiated into masonry, and made it a
subject of study, must have discovered this worse than
"Gil Bias" imposition. These persons are mordlv
and politically bound to disclaim their connexion with
nn institution, by whose hypocritical professions and
pretensions they have been seduced to join. These
things arc worthy of a passing notice; and we would
recommend to all (and wc know there are several in
this plucc) nominal masons.
t"
We have recently " got a peep" into the columns of
that common receptacle of indigestible matter, called
the "Upland Union,"published in Chester, Pa. The
Editor (Mr. Lcscure) pronounces the term, "Democ
racy" with peculiar grace and emphasis—-implores a
blessing in behalf of the " Wceklv Visitor," and mo
destly denounces Dnct. Geo. Smith, a "political trim
mer." We have the pleasure of being partially ac
quainted with Doct. Smith, and although he nmv not
be acquainted with the miraculous " resurrection of
Hiram Abiff," wc believe him tobe far superior to the
44 Fraternal Knight" of the Upland Union," particu
larly in point of modesty. Probably after Doct. Smith
shall have passed through tl\c masonic ( vans modifica
tion , he will he as pure a Democrat r.s Mr. Leucure.
What virtue there is in a " Cabletow."

We discover that the nomination of Messrs. Wm.

QUERIES.
Wonder, when the * Grand Chaplain* of the ' Grand
I.odgc* of the 'Grand State' of Delaware, Inst 'im
plored the Throne of Grace' in behalf of the Devo
tees of the 4 Bible, Compass and Square.*
Wonder, if this Rev. Gentleman (Grand Chaplain)
attends the Lodge regularly—if he does, what his
g re gat ion think of it—what the emoluments and hon
of the office are—how much he would take for his
appointment, &c?
Wonder, how many applications have been made to
* the Worshipful Master, Wardens and Brethren* of
the Hiram Lodge of Free and accepted Masons—
No. —, within the last twelve months—how many
' black balls' have been put in the ballot box—how ma
tty visual orbs have received the « three great lights
iritnTeTwÄÄ
been received &c?
Wonder, if ' Brother Secretary* occupies the seat to
thc 'left-hand of the Most Worshipful* yet—if *Bro
ther Senior Warden,* pays the Craft their wages pune
tually —if all visiting brethren have been clothed with
sheep-skin aprons?
Wonder, what the «Craft* think of things in gene
nil, including Anti-masonrv—whether masonry is as
old a. Creation, and
worn by our * first parents' were really the hierogly
phiesof masonry, or were used merely to hide their
nakedness? . ... . ,
Wonder, if the « Brethren* think there will be 'much
help for the 'Widow's Son* in a few years from this
time_that the 'world in arms could not stop mason
rv" &c? .
• Wonder what was the reason that a certain soap
factorv in this place was not removed, after it had been
presented to the Grapd Jury as a nuisance—whether
not some wonderworkeyingc in the case.
Wonder if a certain weighty « Limb of the Law* of
this place, who is said tobe a 'bright Mason,* thinks
that Anti-masonry is'dying away, and if it is, wheth
IT it will not die a hard death, or perhaps recover—if
Us indisposition results from *a weakly constitution, or!
ancient
there
(an unhealthy climate, whether a trip to the South
might not restore its primitive health.
Wonder, if the terms * Hambug and Chili Mein
tosh' found in the columns of the * » * * » are indige
nuous or exotick—have been recently coined, or were
m King Sdomun-stime-whether there are any
more where they come from, or, is the source exliaus- !
ted—what kind of genius is favourable to the produc*
tionof such sub time and beautiful phraseology: wheth- !
er the art is intuitive or logical? !
Wonder what party was best satisfied with the result :
of the last general political amalgamation meeting,
held at Hare's comer: if such meetings will hereafter •
be fashionable.
Wonder if Anti-masons generally, arc desirous of
^crushing the Clergy" or establishing a Hierarchy, or

OLIVER CROMWELL. -
The following is the Speecli of Oliver Crom
well, when he dissolved the long Parliament,
20th April, 1653, after sitting twelve years,
six months, and fourteen days:—
"It is high time for me to put an end to
your sitting in this place, which you have dis
honored by your contempt of all virtue, and
defiled by your practice of every vice. You
are a factious crew, and enemies to all good
government Ye are a pack of mercenary
wretches, and would, like Esau, sell your
country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas,
is'betrav your God for a few pieces of money.
Is ^ere a single virtue now remaining among
Is Jjrere one vice you do not possess'
Y ou have no more religion than my horse:
gold is your God. Which of you have not
bartered away vour conscience for bribes ? Is
, „ .... i a . ot
theie .1 man amongst y ou that has the least
care for the commonwealth? Ye sordid pros
titutes! Have ve not defiled thi 1 sacred place,
and turned the Lord's temple into a den of
thieves, by your immoral principles and wick
ed practices?—You, who are deputed here by
the people to get grievances redressed, are
yourselves the greatest grievance. Your coun
try, therefore, calls upon me to cleanse this
Augean stable, by putting a final period to
your proceedings in th'19 house; and which, by
God's help and the strength he has given me,
I am now come to do. I command you, there
fore, upon the peril of your lives to depart im
mediately .out of this place. Go! get you out:
make haste, ye venal slaves—begone! So!
take away that shining bauble (the mace) there,
and lock up the doors."
