tarifli iu which tfie village of Rochester is situated,and'
through which Morgan was carried. They were par
ticularly and strongly chained by the presiding judge
to inquire into the subject. They called all the witnes
ses before them, who, in that state of information,
were known. Among others, Esra Platt was exam
inrd by them. This man, it will be recollected, fur
nished the carriage at Rochester, into which Morgan
was removed from that which brought him from Can
andairua. He testified, that his carriage had been en
gaged by some one for the masons, ana that he charg-of
ed the hire of it to the royal arch chapter ; but he dkhhad
not know who engaged it, or who went in it. Edward
Doyle testified that he knew nothing; about the trans
action, he could testify without criminating himself,
The same answer was given by another person, whose
it is not proper to mention. The jury could not
find any bills of indictment, but they made a present
ment, in which they state that they had ascertained;
that Morgan had been carried through their county,.
and add: 4 From the great caution which seems tojdo
have been observed in keeping both Morgan and the
place of his destination from the view and knowledge |
of all but such persons as may have been confidently I
intrusted with the design, and who would decline giv- ! (
ing evidence, upon the ground that it might tend
criminate themselves, the grand jury have found it
impossible to establish, by competent testimony, the'its
unlawful agency of any citizen in this county, in that
tran ,action.'
This result only stimulated an enlightened and
riotic people to greater exertion. A county
was immediately called and held, to devise measures
to ferret-out the hidden workers of inequity. A large
number of masons attended, among them Burrage!
Smith and John Whitney. At this meeting a com mit
tee of investigation was appointed, upon which were
placed sevem masons. The other members soon
ascertained that all their proceedings were divulged j
by their masonic associates, notwithstanding an non- (
orary obligation to the contrary, entered into by them;
and those who did not belong to the fraternity, de
termined to act without the knowledge or assistance of
any masons. Up to this time, the outrages on Mor-;wind
gan had not been considered the work of a few
guided and unimportant individuals i but the conduct
of masons, generally, and particularly of those who
had been placed on the committee, excited the »us
picionsof the observing, that the mnsonic fraternity
in some way connected with those outrages. It
long, and with great difficulty that this, suspicion
ripened into belief. Men could not believe that their
fellow-citizens, with whom they were in habits ofdaly
intercourse, and whom they had been accustomed to
pect, belonged to an institution which made the con
ilmcnt of the most atrocious crimes one of the most
solemn obligations of the older. But day after day
added new proof to the new suspicion. 1 hey beheld
the very committee whohad been appointed indiscrim
inately from all parties, and by citizens of all parties,
vilified and traduced for a faithful discharge of their
duties. Men who had no possible motive but the as
certainment of truth, and the detection of the guilty
(for as yet no party had been arrayed, and no political
objects had even been surmised,) for. discharging a
public tjtist, of the most solemn nature, with fidelity:
—these men were ridiculed, misrepresented, insulted
and traduced daily by the members of the masomc
ft atera'ty. Tlmt evidence which cm. I« Urt xcil ..nly
a long course of observation of minor facts and
circumstances, fand which, in its nature, cannot be
communicated to others, was furnished to an intel;
gentandobserving people ; and the conclusion was
produced, that the laws of the country could not
be enforced so 1< ng as ma sonor y held its sway ever
the minds of men ; and that submission to its secret and
irresponsible power, or an open and avowed war of ex
termination, were the only alternatives. Although
somewhat foreign from their present purpose, your
committee cannot forbear from hej-tf pausing, and ask
i«g,-whether to their distant fcllow-cithrens, there is
not furnished strong moral evidence of the banelul n:i
hire of t-te masonic institution, ip fact, that more than
half a million of free, enlightened and intelligent in
habitants of that section of country, which has afford
ed the best npportrnity for judging, have, in language
that cannot be mistaken, expressed their deliberate
convictions that freemasonry cannot cxLt consistently

** In December, 1826, a mcctipg of the citizens of
Niagara, wau helilTit Lcwistown, at which a commit
tee was appointed to inquire into the circumstances of
Morgan's abduction, and to endeavor to bring the of
fenders to punishment. Having ascertained that Mor
gan had been taken to Canada, one of the committee
crossed the river early in January, 1827, at the time
a grand jury was in session. He was before the grand
jury, and proposed to furnish them with the names of
■witnesses residing in Canada, if the grand jury would
agree to investigate the matter. After consulting to
gether, thev resolved to do so : and they were accor
dingly furnished with the names of several inns ms re
siding in the town of Niagara, which is more
monlp called Newark, who were believed to be impor
tant witnesses. The jury adjourned soon after. The
next day the complainant was informed that after the
adjournment of the jury, the witnesses whohad been
designated had been conversed with ; that after the
assembling of the jury in the morning, they had con
sulted the district judge, and, tliereu]>on, had resolv
ed to do no move in the premises. The complainant
ascertained that the district judge was a freemason,
and that the foreman and a portion of the ji
so mason». This fetation is derived from
were al

man who was the complainant. It needs no com
ment.
" On the 30th of December, 1828, Eli Bruce
arrested aiul brought before a magistrate of Niagara
county, on a charge of falsely imprisoning Morgan, &
of secreting him, &c. There was no legal proof be
fore the magistrate, that any one had been forcibly
brought from Canandaigua, and Bruce was discharg
ed. But on the examination, one fact appe «red which
. deserves to be noted. Bruce had requested Samuel
Bniiton to furnish him a carriage, to proceed down the
Niagnr from Lewiston. The next morning, Bruce,
ha ving returned to Lewiston, was asked if he went to
Youngtown the night before. He said lie did. lie
then asked if he took Morgan down. He said he
did; and observed that 'Barton was very imprudent
in sending Fox/(the driver of the carriage) ; that he
had told him his business, and he ought not to have
. sent any buta mason.' It was the gradual disclosure
of such tacts as these, that excited the suspicions, a:.d
. ultimately produced the belief, of the participate
the masonic fraternity in the transaction ; and that
there was something
which justified its me
for assistance, and scqrecy

two years, Chesebro was sentenced to ft like imprls->tinacious
onment for one year, and Sawyer for one month. Shel
don went on the question of his identity, expressly ad
mitting the çrhnes alleged in the indictment to have
been committed ; thus excluding all proof of thé main
facts, which the public had anticipated would btt do
veloped on these trials. He was, however, found
ty, and sentenced to three months imprisonment. In
passing sentence upon the defendants, the circuit judge, to
who is now governor of New York, descanted, in terms'
great severity, upon the nature of the crimes they
dkhhad committed ; and, at the request of several cBi
zens, furnished a copy of his remarks for publication.
rhey were published accordingly, and have been ex- A
tenslvely circulated in that part ot thecountry. Still,
a few extracts, it is believed, will not be unacceptable,
The judge says, 'Our constitution shows it, and the
declaration ot our independence declares, that the un
molested enjoyment of liberty, and the pursuit of hap
pincss, are the unalienable rights of man. So sacred
tojdo we hold personal liberty, that even the impressment
of a seamen from one of our ship« haß been consider
| ed a sufficient cause for national war. * Your conduct •
I has created, in the people of this section of the coun
! ( try, a strong feeling of virtuous indignation. The court
to,rejoices to witness it,-to he made sure that a
person cannot be invaded by lawless violence, without
the'its being felt by every individual in the commnnity, It
jis a blessed spirit, and wc do hope it will not subside ;
that 1* win b ? accompanied by a ceaseless vigilance êc
pat-untiring activity, until every actor m this profligate
meetmg|conspuacy is hunted from his hiding place,and brought
j before the tribunals of the country, to receive the pun
; ishment merited by his crime. We think we see, in
this public sensation, the spirit which brought us into
1 existence as a nation, and a pledge that our rights and
liberties are destined to endure. 1 he point of these
[remarks will be better understood from a knowledge
j of the fact, that the counsel of Sheldon, in their ad
( dresses to the jury, had cautioned them against being
influenced by the excitement that prevailed,—had re
.presented that excitement to have been produced by
ambitious demagogues, who hoped to 'ride the whirld
Mor-;wind and direct the storm,*—and had deprecated the
mis-attempt to connect the masonic institution with such
foul acts as were charged. The remarks of the judge
were intended as a rebuke for this language ; and the
praise which he lavished on «the blessed spirit* was
thus intended and understood as an encomium on anti
masonry. The truth and force of his observations are
not diminished by the circumstance, that when he ceas
ed to be an independent and impartial judge, and be
came a political partisan, associated with masons, and
depenehnt on them for success, he himself sought to
discredit this ' blessed spirit/ to check * the ceaseless
vigilance* and to rebuke and paralyze 'untiring activi
ty,* which he hail commended. Its only effect is, to
establish most conclusively the contaminating influence
of freemasonry, and its vast power, which could com- j
pci a public offrir thus to proclaim his own incousis
tency.and repudiate sentiments which found their echo
in the bosom of .very American who was neither'liood
winked nor cable towed.*
" In the month of Februar}', 1827, a grand jury for ,
Ontario county again assembled at the Court of Gene
ral Sessions of the Fence, and renewed the inquiries for
the detection of the offenders against Morgen. They
found a bill of indictment against 17 persons, for a con
.piracy to kidnap sml carry away thSt person, .mlfor
falsely imprisoning and carrying him to parts unknown,
These persons were James Lakey, a physician,Chaun
cy H. Coe, a stage proprietor, Hiram Hubbard, the
keeper of a livery stähle, John Butterfield, whoseoc
cupationis unknown, James Ganson, an innkeeper,
and formerly a member of the state legislature, Asa
Nowlen, an inn-keeper, Harris Seymour, Henry How
ard, Joseph Scofield, and Mosqs Roberts, who have
been before mentioned, Halloway Hay ward, a consta
ble, James Gillis, a rcspectable<irqier,John Whitney,
a respectable stone-cutter, 1'urrage Smith, a grocer,
Simeon B. Jewett« an attorney and counsellor at
law, and Willard Eddy, whose occupation is un
known.
" At the same court, the indictment against Harris
Seymour, Henry Howard and Moses Roberts for con
spiring to charge Morgan with stealing, which had
been found, as before mentioned, was brought to trial,
It was in proof that these persons had gone with Chese
bro trom Cenand iigua to Batavia,to arrest Morgan on
the warrant which had beei\,fraudulently obtained a
gainst him, issued bv the justice, Chipman, for steal
ing a shirt and handkerchief ; that he had been taken
in Batavin, and hurried off with great severity and ru
deness, ancl without giving him an opportunity to ap
prize his friends of his situation. But it was held by
the court, that the warrant was evidence of probable
cause, and that the defendants could not be convicted.
Thev were accordingly ucquited.
" In March 1827, another grand jury assembled in
Monroe county, at the Court of Oyer and Terminer.
A majority of them were freemasons. Very faint ef
forts were made to obtain testimony,and no indictments
were found.
"In April, 1827, n grand jury assembled at the
Oyer and terminer, in Niagara county, and a com
plaint was made to them against Eli Bruce, then Slit-r
iff of that county, by one of the county committee, It
seems to have been anticipated that this grand jury
would enter upon an investigation of the subject, and
preparations were made accordingly. It is stated
ted by Hiram B. Hopkins, a royal arch mason* and at
the time deputy sheriff, that he was instructed not to
summon any grand jurors but such as were particular
ly friendly to the masonic institution At that time

diabolical murder was committed in Temple

Short, an apprentice to a brazier in that town

Nevin was serving process*» for the Quarter

Extract of a private letter from Madrid, da
ted the 10th inst:—" Immediately after a coun
cil of Ministers, an order was despatched to the
Military Commandants to retain only the troops
strictly necessary for the different garrisons,
and to send all the others towards Galicia and
Estramadura. Orders have been sent to Pam
peluna for two of the regiments from that gar
i ison to be marched to Galicia. The intention
of this is to keep bodies of troops upon the
frontier of Portugal, readv to enter that king
dom in case the expedition of Don Pedro
should effect a landing—for in spite ofthe cab
inets of London and Paris, the King is resol
