The origin of OJfcllowsIup in the
United States dates from the organiza
tion of the Washington Lodge No. 1, on
the 2Gth d;iy of April, 18 1, in the city
of Baltimore. It is not our purpose to
state by whom that lodge was organized,
but simply to give a fair, aud uubiased
statement of tho principles of the order,
aud the general object and aim of the
association. Whatever might have been
the object i f ancient Odd Fellowship, as
it exists in despotic Europe, is nothing
to us. The question is simply the his
tory of Odd Fellowship from the time of
its organization in the United States
down to the present time. " .-
The design of the order was for the
purpose of associating together individ
uals of various creeds and ideas, whose
business it should be, not only -to allevi
ate each others troubles in case of ne
cessity, but to cement themselves iu the
unity of Friendship, Love and Truth.
This was not from mere pecuniary ad
vantage, as many unfortunately under
stood it to be, but its doctriues teach us
that in all circumstances of life in which
a brother may be placed, he is to receive
the aid, tho council or the protection of
his fellow-member, not as a favor, but as
a rijht a right that ought to be held
saered by all, and dates from the time of
hie membership with the Brotherhood.
Men are not always what they seem.
We should, therefore, judge men by
their conduct, not by their apperance or
profession. lie who p guesses a humane
benevolent heart, who closes not his
hand against his brother in his dark days
of adversity, is a true man, be hi situa
tion in lU'e ever so humble. That man
is to be pitied who can trust to self, and
refuse his aiudly Sices to bis brothers,
for without that brother what would he
le ?
There are several classes of persons
that become members of this most praise
worthy and popular association. First,
we have such men as Thomas Wilde-,
the great founder of American Odd Fel
lowship, whose great heart was filled with
Friendship and true brotherly love for
all mankind, aud whose constant aim and
intense Je.ire was to do good, not only
to the members of his association, but to
all men. lie recognized himself as a
constituent of one universal brotherhood,
having come from the hand of a com
mon -Parent ; and he seemed to accept
the trust delegated to him by that Par
ent, for he was ever seeking to relieve
the distressed aud unfortunate, and to
elevate aud ennoblo his fellow-man and
educate him to a higher degree of man
There is ar.other class of men who, I
am sorry to say, are by far the most nu
merous, who loofc upon the institution as
the proper vehicle for their advancement
in tho social as well as business relations
with the world. They count the costs
with scrupulous accuracy in dollars and
cents, and the various advantages to be
gained personally by being associated
with the beuevolent and charitable men
of the world. Business he thinks, will
be better by reason of hi fraternal ties.
Or peradventure disease my prostrate
him ; in that case he will receive the
kind care and attention of his brother,
besides a weekly benefit of a few dollars.
In case of death, the widow will be
cared for and the orphans educated.
Aud thus it is that thousands become
members if the institution, not that
they may benefit their fellow-men, but
that they may be benefitted, and that
their egregious selfishness may slip
through the world under tho garb of Be
nevolence and Charity. Many times in
the course of life true and false Odd
Fellowship is severely tried by demands
upon them for i'.ie relief of unfortunate
or distressed brcthercn. The true Odd
Fellow's purse strings are ever loose to
the calls of a needy brother, and he
gives readily- to the fulP extent of his
means, -and wishes sincerelj' that he were
able to do more for him ; while the false
Odd Fellow, with many protestations,
pleads his own poverty and gives with
reluctance the scantiest pittance his well
filled purse may contain. "Ani I my
brother's keeper ?" he saysC; If circum
stances have reduced him to poverty it
is his own fault j why should I be re
quired to assist him ? I shall look out
for myself and let others do the same. H
Every Odd Fellow should : remember
the story of the man who went down to
Jericho aud, falling among thieves, was
robbed aud left by them half dead. By
chance there came a certain priest that
"way, but seeiug the wounded man, passed
by on the other siJe, as likewise did a
Levite, who passed by the other side.
But the good Samiritan seeing him had
compassion and immediately bound up
his wounds and ministered to his wants
until he h ul recovered. Is this a fair
comparison ? Will two-thirds of the
brotherhood pass by on the other side ?
Every Odd Fellow can answer for him
salf. "Do unto others as you would that
others should do unto you," is the Gold
en Rule of Odd Fellowship.
Uiiu County Teachers' Association.
Brownsville, Jan. 1st, 1SG0.
Allow me, through the columns of
your excellent paper, to publish a minute
of the Linn County Teachers' Association,
which met at North Brownsville, Decem
ber irOih. Owing to a misunderstanding
as to tho time of meeting, the various
parts of the county were not as well rep
resented as they would otherwise have
bcn. Notwithstanding, enough teachers
were present to make a pleasant and
profitable session.
Tho session lasted three days. Tie
branches were all represented, and the
discussions lively. The purest harmony
prevailed, and good will was manifested
by all prescut. The Institute was never
in a more flourishing condition. The
teachers are alive to the responsibilities
which rest on them, and the people are
beginuiug to realize the benefit of such
The following resolutions were adopted:
Itesolced, That we regard scholarship
and practicability as the highest qualifi
cations of teachers, and that polities and
religious sectarianism never ought to
enter our schools.
Believing that the presence of parents
has a salutary effect on our common
schools, therefore, resolved that we re
commend that patrons vh;t their schools
abd the loacuers Institute more fre
liesfjlced. That we believe the prejud
ice existing against female teachers in
our county ought to be removed, and
that we invite them to the field of labor.
Jiesolted, That hereafter circulars be
sent to teachers and the friends of edu
cation generally throughout the county,
notifying them of tho time of holding
sessions, containing the programme of
exercises, and requesting their attendance
IZesolvcil, That teachers who frequent
saloons snouia not be regarded as poises
sing good moral characters.
Jtesolvcd, Thaf we teuder our hearty
thanks to Mr. Smith for the generous
offer of the use of his hall in which to
hold our session ; and that we tender our
warmest thanks to those citizens of
Brownsville and 'vicinity who have open
ed their homes to members of the Insti
The next session of the Institute is to
be held at Irving's schoolhouse, May
4th, 18C9. Officers as follows : Presi
dent, J.v W. Mack ; Vice President, A.
C. Henderson ; Secretary, R. N. Thom
son ; Treasurer, N. Ilendrie j Executive
Committee, S. G. Irving, J. F. McCoy
and J. W . Mack.
It will be seen that we have an able
corps of officers, and all may expect an
entire success at cur next session. The
Executive Committee inform me that
they will select lectures from the best
talent in the county. Every friend of
education is invited to be present, and we
promise them, unhesitatingly a rare lite

u It! i iiu ,
It was a dreary morning in November;
the rich banker, Mr Brandon, was seated
in his room, busily engaged in writing ;
he was interuptetl by the entrance of a
clerk, announcing that a lady, who de
sired to see him a short time alone, was
waiting at the door or the bauking-house;
she had arrived in a hackney coach, aud
had sent iu a message to this effect, not
wishing to alight uutil assured that Mr.
Brandon was disengaged and willing to
receive her.
The clerk delivered his message ; Mr.
Brandon looked both puzzled aud an
noyed, but gave orders that the lady
should be admitted.
iMr. Brandon was about sixty years of
age;. he had commenced life-as. a. junior
clerk of the establishment ; he had risen
by gradual aud regular rotation to the
seuior partner ; in person he was com
monplace, not to say vulgar, about tho
middle height, stout and clumsily made,
his fda tuxes large and promiueut, his
face red, his eyes round, blue and un
meaning, his thin locks plentifully
sprinkled with grey ; his manner was
precise and formal, his dress plain and
He placed a chair for the reception of
his visitor, aud seated himself gravely iu
another beside the fire, folded his hands
before him and awaited her appearance.
The door opened to admit her; she en
tered ; it closed behind her ; she ad
vanced into the room, and the banker
raised from his seat.
'5he was young and beautiful; tall,
magnificently formed, with a face whose
beauty of feature was its least charm, so
intellectual was the expression, so spark
ling with the light of genius, so beam
ing with the fire of an unquenchable en
ergy. -
Her dress was plain and evidently se
lected with a view to economy, but taste
ful and elegant. There was in her
whole stj'le and manner that decision
and confidence which is the. result of
high fasi ion, and that ease which inter
course with the world alone can give.
The banker sprang forward to meet her ;
he took her hand affectionately. "Mad
eline," he said, "you have retu:ncd at
last ! How glad I am to see you again !
I thought you dead, or lost lost to me
forever. "Where have you spent the in
terval since we met ? Why have vou
hidden yourselt troni me,: Oh, Made
line ! I have suffered much tor you.'
'Do not call me Madeline :
longer Madeline Vernon ; I am
f-Married, Madeline ! Say
Married I" And the banker
gasped with excitement.
"No no!" Said the lady
"but am no more known by that name
and those with whom I reside call me
Mary Clintou."
Mr. Brandon remained .silent; she
spoke again.
"I could not continue dependent on you
I could not live on your bouuty : I re
solved to find subsistence for myself or
perish. I have had my struggles; I
have suffered much ; but I have succee
ded ; and I seek you again, to thank you
for your past kindness to entreat your
continued friendship. I am happy ; at
least, I am content. I have obtained a
situation as a governess ; I reside in an
obscure and gloomy part of the city; but
tho family I serve is opulent. My salary
is a liberal one; end if I have no pleas
ures, at least I have few annoyances, and
no insults "
She spoke quickly and with an effort,
and she ceased abruptly.
"Oh, Madeline ! is this a life foryow?"
"I have no choice," she answered ;
"I must submit to my fate.''
"You have a choice. I have offered
you all I have to offer. I renew my pro
pcsals be my wife."
"No. Mr. Brandon ! I thank you
from my heart I thank; you ! but it can
not be. Pity mo not ; I am happy I"
"Happy I Madeline Vernon, do you
remember what you hare been ?"
V Yes I remember I remember!"
"And I, too, remember I" (And the
banker; rising, paced the room with hur
ried steps.) I remember all I can tell
you all 1 I can recall those times when,
among the proud, your father was the
proudest ; when among the gay and
lovely, you were the gayest the most
beautiful ! I can go further back, and I
can see your mother y u are her im
age, Madeline ! site whom, as a dream,
was ever present to my sight -she whom,
as a dream I worshiped 1 Well, she mar
ried. She hose your father -the gal
lant, and admired Henry Vernon and
they were happy. Then I can recall
your birth you, their only child ! and
from the first I loved you ; I loved you
for her sake 1 I can recajl their rapid
rise from affluence to the possession of
eno-mous wealth their luxury ! Then
"A few years pass away, and you take
her place. You appear, the mistress of
matchless charms, the heireps of untold
riches. Who so admired ? 60 courted ?
How often have I watched you when you
saw: me not ! In the Park, at the opera,
who was so gallantly attended ? who
greeted with so deep a homage as Made
lino Vernon, the only daughter of the
wealthy banker the proclaimed heiress
of the 'Merchant Prince V Your suitors,
aisoi were they not numberless ? ; What
was not offered to your acceptance f what j
did you not reject ? Bank, title, station
personal qualifications that might mate
with such as yours fortunes equal to
your own. Ah ! what might you not
have been ? ah I what arc you now?
Wejl the sequel the. sequel. Ah, uow
you weep ! Your father, he-bocomes a
bankrupt worse, worse a diahonorcd
bankrupt ! But one way lies before him
but one path, dark and gloomy; on
that he enters by that he escapes all
shame, insult, contumely ! lie dies 1 , 1
will not dwell on his death" of horror!
but you were left young; beautilul,
alone and poor, my child, what snares
were . around thee ! Then I came I,
your dead mother's humble lover I, your
dead father's only friend ! I, your own
most passionate adorer ! I -rescued you
from want from insult from despair
and I dared to speak of love ! I was, I
fear, too hasty, too inconsiderate in my
proposals; lay love was despised reject
ed ! You left me. But, Madeline, your
suitors, where are they ? The gay train
of knights, vowed to your set vice the
proud young nobles, who laid their pride
and their nobility at your feet where
are they ? They fled at the first shadow
of your misfortune, or those who remained
stayed but to wound with expressions of
contemptuous pity, or insult with baser
proposals. They fled, and 3'ou were des
olate. Was no one faithful ?"
"Yes ! one!" murmured Madeline, as
she hid her face in her hnds ''one I"
''And that one, Madeline, do you still
hope and live for him ? do you still love
each other ?"
"Yes ! yes !" said Madeline, rising,
with sudden energy ; "we stil! love each
other we still love each other we hope
still ! I will not desert him ! He clung
to me through all. I will cling to hiuj,
and we shall yet be happy I"
"Madeline," exclaimed the banker,
and he knelt before her ; "accept mo !
I offer you a situation equal to the one
you have lost wealth beyond your wild
est dreams, luxuries beyond your utmost
wishes. I will raiseyou above the proud
est of your late admirers the parasites,
the fawners, the faithless ones of former
days. You shall set your foot upon
their necks. Gold, diamonds, equipa
ges these will not bribe j'ou. I offer
you power independence the power
of doing good the independence of all
obligation. Oh, think before you again
reject '. Your lover, too I saw him but
lately ; he is ill. I marked his slight
figure, his thin, flushed cheek ; I heard
his frequent cough, lie is working
hard ; he denies himself many comforts
that he may free you from bondage. He
will not live. Labor, scanty clothing,
and poor diet will do the work sooner or
later; you will lose him ! I offer you his
health his happiness. I will pour gold
upon him, and with gold, ease and com
fort. If you will be mine, Madeline, I
will settle upon him that shall lift him
at once to affluence. Madeline, you will
not now refuse me ?"
She answered mournfully and slowly :
"No, Mr. Brandon, it cannot be; I never
will desert him ! Oh ! believe me, I feel
grateful; he, too, shall thank you; but
ask not, I beseech you ask me not to
deny myself the sweet privilege of strug
gling for, and with him, through the
darkness of the; present hour into the
light beyond. We are1 young and hope
ful, and we shall yet be happy. .Yes, we
shall be happy! Oh! my friend, our
all ; ask us uot to renounce it !"
Mr. Brandon rose from his knees, and
seated himself at bis desk ; there was a
long pause. At last ho spoke but in al
tered tones.
. "Tell me, Miss Vernon, your lover's
present plans. It may be in my power
to aid him."
"It is his intention to procure a situation
as clerk, which he has promised to him
upon the payment of a sum of money,
provided he can raise it in a certain
space of time; during which the place
will be kept ope for him. Our object
is to accumulate this sum ; to do this we
are straining every nerve, and I trust we
shall succeed."
Another long pause, and the banker
raised the lid of his desk ; he touched a
secret spring, and a drawer flew open ;
he took from it a roll of paper, and with
a grave and solemn air handed it to
"Madeline ! are you too proud to ac
cept from one who loves you but too well,
the gift of two thousand pounds ?"
She started from her seat. ,
"Do not speak hastily, Madeline ; false
pride is no virtue. I know not the ex
act sum required, but this sum will go
far toward the attainment of the object
you have in view. Take itgo ! and
unless again thou comest iu distress come
to me no more; but if thou needest a
friend, I am here I am here !"
Madeline, was awed, and pleased, and
pained ; she could but weep her thanks.
He took her arm and drew it within his
own, and led her through the banking
house, and handed her sobbing into the
miserable hackney-coach awaiting her.
He stood, half'-uoconsciously,at the door,
watching its progress down, the street,
till at the corner it stopped to take up a
tall and elegant-lookim youns-man. who
awaited its arrival ; : shiverinsr in the
chilly air he recognized the favored lov
er, and, heaving a sigh, withdrew into
his appartment. There he resumed his
seat at the desk and opened his private
account-book. :Ah I he said, "1 have
no command over myself when that girl
comes- I could make myself a begger
to see her look happy. But she will
come no more I" anil again he sighed
heavily. "Three thousand pounds, too I

Gastronomy.- The following curious
details regarding the gastronomic tastes of
the reigning sovereigns of Europe, are
taken from a Paris paper.
Napoleon III. Abstemious, cautious;
never making the slightest remark to the
servata. Moderate drinker," but great
smoker.' -
Queeu Victoria Abstemious, Pusey
ite, liking beef and pastry.
Alexander II. Hearty eater, connois
seur in wine, preferring Champagne and
Burgundy and fond of game.
His Prussian Majesty Good drinker
(Roedcrer, etc.), beef, mutton, biscuits
aud sweet things. A pleasant and unaf
fected host.
His Majesty of Austria. Silent ' at
table, cats dark meat, especially mutton'
and game, and drinks the national wines
of Hungary and Bordeaux. .
Victor Emmanuel. Mighty hunter.
Capital appetite, eats only white meat
and small game. Kills wild boar, but
never eats their meat; drinks the Cote'd
Or wines. -
Isabella of Spain.- Great appetite j
prefers ' veal and white meats, drinks
Spanish wines and Bordeaux.' .
The Sultan. Partisan of strong meats,
of rice, of pastry, of Eastern fruit, and
of Burgundy.
His Dutch Majesty has the finest cellar
in Europe; fond of . fish, and especially
salmon. His neighbor of Belgium cats
very little, and always small game, and
drinks sparingly of Bordeaux.
The ex-King ot Hanover lives on tho
Bohemian pheasant, the woodcock of
Galicia, and smoked ham. of Styria and
driuks Moselle and the Rhine wines. ' .'
King Louis of Portugal is the smallest
eater in Europe.
Ricn Nobles of England. Speak
ing of the rich man of England, it is said
the Earl of Dudley one of the richest
noblemen of that little island. Of his
wealth it is said ;
II is' territorial possessions and country
seats in Staffordshire and Worchester-r
shire, England, his shooting-grounds in
Scotland and the cast of England, his
mansion and picture gallery in London,
his winter palace in Borne, even' his valu
able mineral estate in Menonetshire, fade
into insignificance when compared with
his mines and colleries, and iron works
around the midland town which takes
his title. The latter estate honey
combed by industry beneath, blackened
by industry on the surface covers an
area of ten square miles. It furnishes
employment for nine thousand working
people, and reckoning in their families,
wholly supports at a moderate computa
tion, something like seven and twenty
thousand human beings. It is intersect-
.J m I-..!.- 1 1 J . 3.
by forty miles of railroad. The horses
employed upon it are numerous enough
to supp'y a cavalry regiment; the canal
boats to furnish a fleet. The steam
power used is simply incalculable, it is
so dispersed. Eight locomotives ply upon
its railways. There are forty boilers in
one of its works, and twenty id anotner.
Every pit and every furnace over and
under the whole ten miles has accompany
ing steam engines. This vast estate
yields seventy thousand tons of pig iron
per week, to say nothing of the limestone
used for flux; and it sends manufactured
iron into all the markets of the world.
Nearly a hundred heads of - departments,
are engaged in managing it, and it takes
over three hundred clerks to keep the
accounts. The annual outlay in wages
does not fall far short of half million
sterling. , i
