To the Subordinate Lodges of the State,
by a Committee of the Grand Lodge.
For some years past, the Grand Lodge
has been engaged in the effort to raise the
funds necessary to put into successful ope
ration a Masonic College, to be under
its control and supervision. -
Some differences of opinion have exist
ed amongst us as to its location ; but, up
on that point being determined, all dis
sensions have subsided, and we now cordi
ally unite in the common effort to carry
into full effect this noble enterprise.
It is the intention of the Grand Lodge
that their Institution shall be able to fur
nish all young men with as full and com
plete a Collegiate education as can be ob
tained at any similar Institution in the
Union. It is not to be disguised that, in
most of die Colleges of the Union, the sys
tem of education has not kept pace with
the improvements of the age. At one pe
riod, all learning was contained in books
written m the dead lansruajres. When
that state ef things existed, it was essen
tial that every educated gentleman should
acquire a thorough knowledge of those
languages. Without that knowledge, he
could maku no progress in the career of
improvement. Almost the whole . time,
therefore, of a young man- devoted to his
education, was employed in learning those
languages ; and this custom lias been fol
lowed, by most of oui Colleges to the pre
sent time, notwithstanding the wonderful
changes wrought by modern discoveries in
the condition of the world. No gentle
man's education can be regarded as com
plete, nor ought to be regarded as com
plete, without a knowledge of the dead
languages ; but it certainly is impro er
that two-thirds of a young man's life
should be occupied in this one branch of
education, to be forgotten, in most in
stances, very soon after he engages in the
busy avocations of life, to the exclusion of
those other more useful species of knowl
edge which will better prepare him to act
his part a? 'a man. -
Masonry is eminently practical in its cha
racter ; and a College established by Ma
sons, and supported "by them, should fur
nish a practical education. It should par
ticularly acquaint the student with' those
Arts and Sciences, the results of modem
inventions and mdoern discoveries. Most
of our young men,- educated men, re
gard with too little respect the Mechanic
Arts ; and, in consequence, most of the
talent of the country is devoted to those pro
fessions which are regarded as the high
road to preferment and honor. One prime
object of our Institution should be, to ele
vate the practice of these Arts, by making
a knowledge of their theory a part of Col- j
legiate Education. Most of the sciences,
too, are of modern origin ; and a young
man graduated at one of our Universities
of the highest character goes forth into the
world expecting to find it like it was in the
days of Homer or Virgil. He is taught,
it is true, something of Astronomy, Natu
ral Philosophy, Chemistiy, Geology, Elec
tricity and Galvanism, and a few other
kindred Eciences ; but nothing ol Archi
tecture, which gave rise to our Order
nothing of the power of feteam, and its ap
plication to machinery ol the various pro
cesses of Manufactures of Metallurgy, of
Natural Histoiy, of Engineering and his
knowledge of the modern languages, so
essential to every gentleman in the pre
sent state of the world, affording so many
facilities of national intercommunication,
is exceedingly imperfect. Tins, we think,
can, in a great measure, be remedied, by
devoting more attention to what is vscjiil,
and less to what may be called ornament
al more to what will prepare a young
man to succeed in the great business of
life, and less to that which will enable him
to shine in the walks of literature.
The precise plan and system by which
these desirable objects are to be attained, it
is not our present duty to suggest ; and,
were it so, the limited time at our com
mand would have prevented our present
ing any, even satisfactory to ourselves.
This is reserved for the luturc considera
tion and determination of the Grand Lodge
Every Mason may rest assured, that the
Institution about to be established at ux
ford will be one at which his son shall have
every advantage to be obtained at Colleges
of the hixrhest character in the United
States ; and where, free from sectarian in
fluence, he shall have instilled into his
mind those principles of Morality, Brotherly
Love, and Charity which constitute the
chief corner-stone of our beloved 1 empie.

will be to advoeatf the ca 11 of a 11 unrestricted Con

into cousideiation 1 lie propriety of ann-nding 'he

may desire, a nd to shew the danger to which our in
stitutions will be exposi'J by permitting t' at instru
ment to be amended or a Ik red by the Legislature.
The suhseriutT believes that this is tin- most impor
tant question which can eiigagi' tin- attention r
the people of Noith Carolina. The cliur .i t' r aiji
prosperity of t!i -who e St ite dpndu 11pou.it A

of liberty, which 1 fleets evi ry ritizi 1. of 01 r 1 ri 1

not against the action of the General Goy-rii nru;
