No public event in the memory of the oldest person now living, ever elicited such general curi- osityas that which was shewn on Monday last to a Masonic Procession at Monmouth, in consequence of the consecration of the Royal Augustus Lodge of Free Masons, lately established in that town. It is supposed that, including the inhabitants, there were not less than 10,000 present on this interesting occasion; and the splendid costume of many of the principal gentlemen belonging to the Lodges at a 11 9 distance, and who honoured it with their presence, gave the assemblage an appearance of military character's of the highest rank.
