We highly approve of this mode of testing the character of the MHartdutaia, and the influence of her principles in Sofciety. If the professions of mason ry are based upon truth, her advocates will not dread an exposition of her principles, because such an expo sition will inevitably elevate her character, But if the history of "Hiram AbifF" is all a fictiort,-^-if the bold 'and presumptuous claims of masonry ceptive, then indeed will masons tremble at the idea of a public detection. We hope Freemasonry may become a subject of general discussion, which, if conducted with prop ' ty, Will greatly facilitate the accomplishment of only object we desire, Which is the triumph of truth & justice over falsehood and brimé.
