William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 2, Chapter 28: Philadelphia. (search)
t now of public buildings of exceptional character and excellence-such edifices as Girard's College, the most perfect classical building in America, or of the new Girard bridge, over the Schuylkill River — the widest, perhaps the handsomest, iron roadway in the world --but of ordinary structures-clubs and banks, churches and law-courts, masonic halls, hotels, and newspaper offices. Two or three of the new banks are equal to the best things lately done in Lombard Street, while the great Masonic Temple puts the residence of our own Grand Lodge to shame. The new churches are mostly in good style and rich material, nearly all being faced with either rough green-stone or polished white marble. The new buildings of the University of Pennsylvania-partly completed — are fine in exterior, built of the rough green-stone peculiar to the .place, faced with red sand-stone, as well as rich in apparatus and collections, the department of physics being particularly good. Broad Street is not yet

interview had not been more placid, but feeling no unkindness, but rather much pity, toward him. I fell down on my knees, and besought the Lord to forgive him for all his accusations against me, to open his eyes if he were in error, and to grant that no ill — will should be left to rankle in our hearts. I also earnestly besought forgiveness for myself, if I had said or done aught amiss. My mind was very tranquil. The meeting was finally held in the lower hall of the Lib. 4.123. Masonic Temple, in spite of direct incitement to violence by the press and by means of placards. In his debate with George Thompson in Glasgow, in June, 1836, Mr. Breckinridge accused Mr. Garrison of having concocted and printed a mobbing placard (Lib. 6.135). Mr. Garrison was present, and, during the slight interruptions which ensued, besought the chairman, Horace Mann, to do Lib. 4.127. his duty by the disturbers; though for his own part he regarded the Rev. John Breckinridge's speech as feroci

[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.]another Secession Flag raised — dedication of Masonic Temple. Harrisonburg, Va., April 6, 1861. On Friday morning our submission friends sent up another groan at the sight of another secession flag, which was thrown to the breeze from a tall and majestic pole on Thursday night, amidst the shouts and hurrahs of many citizens and firing of salutes by the "sojer " boys. So, my prediction has been verified that "other secession flags would go up bthe first one put up would come down." So it is, and so it will be again. Truly, "Southward the star of empire takes its way." Old Rockingham will be all right, and so will Virginia. Let the State Convention take notice. To-day the new Masonic Temple was dedicated. This Masonic Hall is, very probably, the finest in the State. It was opened last night, and a public reception was granted to all to see its beauties. The building is a very fine one, and reflects great credit upon the breth
