The Origin and Early History of this
"Then let ns throw all enre aside,
Let's merry be and mellow,
May Friendship, Love and Truth abido
With every true Odd-fellow.
The origin of Odd Fellowship is
wrapped iu some obscurity. There are
those who claim that the Loyal Ancient
Independent Order was founded at
Rome during the reign fifty -five of tl'at
royal fiddler and matricide, the Em
peror Nero, perhaps the only good thing
done during his wicked reign. Bolton,
a marble mason, however, came from
London to i'Laiicliester ih 180!) and
established an Odd-Fellow's Club in
imitation of one with which he had been
connected in the great metropolis. The
association was a success, and in 1812
became the parent of the Manchester
Society of Odd Fellows, which in 18C4,
numbered 258,556 members. The ob
ject of the organization was first con
vivial, then merged into benevolent.
Some wag once ' described an Odd F el
low as like "a fox fur cunning, a dove
for tameness, a lamb for innocence, a
lion fur boldness, a bee fur industry and
a sheep for usefulness." To-day, how
ever, the Order may be described to
the general reader as one which aims
at benevolence, charity and care for the
widow and orphan, or those members
in sickness or aflliction. In no sense
is it an Insurance Company. No sta
ted or special amount is guaranteed the
heirs of the deceased member, yet the
rites of christian burial, care for the
orphau and widow ate rigidly looked
Baltimore, the great sea port of the
State of Maryland, justly claims the
honor of being the birthplace of Amer
ican Odd Fellowship. Just after the
close of the war of 1812, when Balti
more had a population of sixty thous
and, in the year 1818, Thomas Wid
ley and John Welsh, both Englishmen,
being fellow-countrymen, conceived the
idea of starting the organization. Wid
ley had been initiated in 1801 into a
T . l O - it l i 1 1 t . t
times Welch had also been a member
of a London Lodge, and had passed
the chairs before emigrating to Ameri
ca. The two friends sadly regretted
that emigration, while it had bettered
their condition, had deprived them of
their loved brotherhood. They de
termined to form a lodge, and tried in
a quiet way by asking their associates
and friendd to discover, if possible,
brothers. Unsuccessfully, February
13th, 1819, the Baltimore American
contained their advertisement: "Notice

Seven Stars," a public house kept by
Willinni Lupton, and then there was
solemnly organized, April 2Gth, 1819,
the Washington Lodge of Odd Fellows,
which was the first organization of the
kind in America. Thos. Widley was
installed as Noble Grand, and John
Welch ns Vice-Grand. Within two
or three weeks the members were in
creased to fifteen. About this time
one Henry M. Jackson arrived at Bal
timore from Liverpool, aud learning of
the existence of a Lodge in the city
expressed great surprise, was iuvited
to attend, and as a compliment was in
vited to occupy the chair as Warden
at the opening of the Lodge. Tbi
position enabled him to ascertain that
the Lodge was not worked on the re
formed plan of the Manchester Unify,
aud to the consternation of all, he an
nounced : "Nobody in the Lidsre is
correct." A recess occurred, aud all
were requested to withdraw except
Widley and Welch. Jackson then
brought forth his documents and ex
plained how the changeable password
was operated in conjunction with the
old one. Trobably he submitted all
the improvements madp by the Man-
Chester Unity, which had been framed
in 1813. Jackson appears to have
been a designing man, and did every
thing iu his power to supplant Widley
and obtain the credit of having estab
lished the Order in America. He was
finally suppressed, and Widley stands
forward as the founder of Odd Fellow
ship iu America. In early days beer
and rum drinking were the features of
the gatherings; but, owing to tho
trouble that ensued, and hostile feelings
that it engendered from Lodges of op
position Orders, these carnival dis
plays were dispensed with.
' From this diminutive and unostenta
tious beginning Odd Fellowship has ex
tended and grown until to-day the In
dependent Order has four Supreme
Grand Lodges, viz : In the United
States, the German Empire, Australia
and New Zealand. It has forty-eight
subordinate Grand Lodges in the Uni
ted States and four in the German Em
pire; thirty-nine Grand Encampments)
in the Uuited States and one in Aus
tralia. In tho United States jn 1878,
there wore 6,734 subordinate Lodges;
iu the German Empire, 41 ; in Aus
tralia, 93; in New Zealand, 20; ma
king a total of 0,859. I'm. Enquirer.

Its Beneficent Influence Upon the Minds
Rev. II. A. Jones, pastor of the
Court street Cumberland Presbyterian
church, preached a brief but interest
ing sermon Sunday night from Luke
24, 29: "But they constrained him,
saying abide with us; for it "is toward
evening, and the day is far spent."
Iu tho opening portiou of his dis
course the Fpcaker developed a liue of
thought that was not only impressive
from the force and clearness of its eluci
dation, but adorned with illustration
and metaphor at onco beautiful and
appropriate. After explaining at
length the conversation between Jesus
and the two disciples, from which the
text was drawn, he suggested that Je
sus had chosen that hour to meet them
on the road from Jerusalem to Em
maus, because ho knew that their ruiuds
would then bo in a state favorable for
the reception of the light ho was to
give them.' Evening is the time when
the soul is most easily aroused on the
subject of religion. In the earlier part
of the day the secular cares of life oc
cupy our attention and leave no time
or opportunity to look beyond them.
Men engaged in all tho different call
ings m lite find full employment for
body and brain in the struggle for gain
or subsistence,, while women are en
grossed by the not less imperative du
ties of the household; aud the pressing
claims of the present, thus crowd out
consideration of the future. But when
the day's work is over, und the family
are once more united and at rest, the
mind is freed from tho dead weight of
worldly thoughts aud the pructical
gives place to the speculative. Then
it is that heart and mind are alike open
to the impressions of religion, and ret

the day in their true light, opens the

was an individual who once belonged
to the command known as the "Louisi
ana Tigers." His lawless conduct made
him a terror to the country where be
operated. Dr. Saddler by some means
became an object of the Tiger's hatred,
and one day meeting the Doctor, with
out any knowu provocation, he shot
and killed him. Mary's only brother
was away in the Confederate army, her
faiher was an aged and feeble man and
could not aveuge the wrong that had
been doue in the death of her devoted
lover. She resolved that the murderer
of Dr. Saddler should die.
Not many months elapsed when one
day she was informed that the desper
ate Tiger was then at a neighbor's house.
Putting on her sun-bonnet and taking a
navy pistol, with the use of which she
had become familiar, preparatory to the
hostile meeting, she repaired to the
place. When she arrived the Tiger
had left the house and was in the yard
with his pistols buckled around him.
She accosted him, told him that he was
the murderer of Dr. Saddler and that
she had come to kill him. Before the
steady gaze of her impressive gray eyes,
expressing a resolution not the I mis
taken, the Tiger fled..,; 'E. corner of

to the place where he lay, and satisfy
ing herself that he was dead, she an
nounced to the neighbor and family,
who had come out of the house on hear
ing the firing, "that she was avenged
for the death of Dr. Saddler." She
recaptured some small articles of per
sonal property which the Tiger had
taken from the person of Dr. Saddler,
and quietly returued to her home.
A few months after the occurrence
the writer happened to meet with
Mary; being in good practice, and
thinking myself a good pistol shot, I
bantered the young lady for a match.
The result was an inglorious defeat for
your humble servant.
A fow days ago at Kingston, after
transacting my business and bidding all
good-bye, I took my scat in the hack
with the driver and a strange lady
dressed in mourning, to return to
Emory Gag, for the train. John was
a new driver and not a very good one.
Thoughts of being left by the train in
duced me offer my services as a Jehu,
which were accepted. After having
cone some distance I drove loo
near the brusb and one of them struck
the bonnet of the strange lady. I vm"
tured an apology, which was accented.
A conversation ensued, and to rayi sur
prise I discovered, that it was theVver-
itahle belle heroine who slew the Tiger.
Many years had passed, but from con
versation I learned ehewas stiljl the
victim of misfortune; yet she wis on
another errand prompted by lovej and
affection. She had loved again, married,
her husband had been drowned in the
Emory river, and she had come from
the State of Kentucky, still wearing
the weeds of mourning, to place a
tomb-stone over his last resting place.
Time had changed Mary's appear
ance in many respects; but the gray eye
which denotes as much resolution as
Napoleon ever possessed is bright and
unchanged, and if she were to tell you
that she had come to kill me, I would
have no hesitation in believing every
word she said. I inquired if she still
kept up her pistol practice ? Without
giving a direct answer, she intimated
that she could still use one if necessary.
Gen. Andrew Jackson, a few days
before his death, sent for Mr, Mc
Combe, a Nashville undertaker, and
said to bira coolly : "I have sent for
vou to give you some instructions about
my funeral" Then, saya Mr. Mo-
Combs in a recent letter to the Cen
tennial Committee on Invitations, "as
calmly as he would discuss the most
ordinary business matter, he gave the
moot minute instructions relative to it"
A few dap after the General was laid
quietly to rest at the lionnitago.

of 18G2 he was iu command of all the
Confederate forces in Virginia, and was
severely wounded at the battle of Fair :
Oaks, near Richmond, May 31. In
November, notwithstanding the person
al hostility of President Davis, he was
assigned to the command of the milita
ry department of Tenuessee, and in the
following spring made an ineffectual ef
fort to relieve Vicksburg, which was
then besieged by Gen. Grant. After
the defeat of Gen. Bragg at Chattanoo
ga, Nov. 25, 18G3, Gen. Johnston was
assigned to the command of all the
Confederate forces in the South-west
Early iu 18C4, his forces were concen
trated at Dalton, Ga., and at the be
ginning of May, Gen. Sherman moved
upon the position with a greatly superi
or force. Gen. Johnston fell back,
making a stand at each defensible pint,
from all of which he was necessarily
out-flanked by Sherman, who continu
ally threatened to interrupt his line of
communication with Atlanta, which
was his base of supply, and otherwise
a place of great military importance.
Gen. Johnston reached Atlauta about
the middle of July, and had resolved
to hold the place to the last, but the
authorities nt Richmond, altogether un
derstanding the inferiority of his force
tp that of the enemy, were dissatisfied,

when Dherman, auer capturing Atian-

Savannah and thence into South Caro

sume the command of the rerammt of
the Army of Tennessee and of all tb
forces m bouth Carolina, trebrgia an
Florida, and "to concentrate all avail
able foroes and to drive back Sherman."
The force which he could concentrate
was greatly inferior to that of Sherman.
and he was unable seriously to check
the march of the victorious army. Hav
ing learned that Gen. Lee had surren
dered the army of Virginia to Gen.
Grant, he rurrendered to Sherman at
Durhams Station, North Carolina.
April, 26, 1865. In his farewell ad
dress to his troops Gen. Johnston said;
"I earnestly entreat you to observe
faithfully the terms of pacification
agreed upon, and to discharge the obli
gations of good and peaceful citizens,
as well as you have performed the du
ties of thorough soldiers on the field."
Since the close of the war, he has
been actively engaged in agricultural,

living in Savannah, Ga., and subse

the notion of gettiug married in a gar
den. It is in good taste. We like
private weddings. Adam's was private.
No envious beaux were there; no
croaking old maids; no chattering auijhj

birds of heaven were the minstrels, and
the glad sky flung its light upon the
scene. Une ftiDg about the wedding
brings queer thoughts to us, spite of
spiritual truth. Adam and his wife

of support, nor has a rich father to feet

limited to getting up b time to eat a
cold breakfast, is said to have u& a
good match. Will the female at the
