The following extract from the proceed ings of the annual session of the Graind Lodge of Georgia, will give our readers some idea of how the Color question is be ing handled in that State. We, your committee to whom was re ferred that portion of the G. W. C. Tern plar's report relating to the " Color Ques tion," beg leaf to report that we have care fully considered the matter, and ask to sub mit the following preamble and resolu tion. viz : WHEREAS, we believe that the i. O. of U. T. is a world-wide institution, and in tended to benefit all nations, States and classes; and whereas, No race or people ' needs more the benefit and good influences -oftthis noble Order than the colored people in the Southll ; and whereas, We believe that it would be better both for the Southern whites and blacks for the Southern whites to aid them (the blacks) in getting charters, ,organizing Lodges, aid teaching tihem the principles of our grand Oirder. Therefore, be it Resolved, 'Thalt hereafter the Grand Lodge <of Georgia will grant charters to worthy colored persons upon the' following condi -tions, viz: 1. That the charters granted to colored people shall people shall be separate and distinct from the whites, and that the col ored lodges organized shall not have repre sentation in the white Grand Lodge. 2. That when the colored" lodges in this State shall be sufficient in number to entitle them to a Grand Lodge Charter, consent will be given to the R. W. G. Lodge for the institution of a Colored Grand Lodge. 3. That while in the past we have devoted our time and our energies to the carrying out in good faith the action of the Madison session of the i. W. G. Lodge, in spreading the truths of Temperance among the colored people in a separate order for them, as pro posed by Joseph Malins, G. W. C. Templar of England, in the establishment and intro duction of the United Order of True Re formers to the extent of the organization of a Grand Fountain that now has a member ship of over five thousand to this State, be 5id,1s introducing this order into the States of Tennesee, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Florida, Virgin ia, Louisiana, Texas,:Mississippi and the Dis trict of Colunabia, three of the above named States having Grand Founitains, all beilg established under the supervision and through the direct influetic of this Grand Lodge and her membership--il conformity with the above voluntary action, we will use our influence to induce the Grand and Subordinate Fountains to accept the Inde pendent Order of Good Templars in lieu of the United Order of True 1feformers; we further pleading ourselves to aid them in all things consistent with honor in the es thblishment of the ordor of Templary.aiuong tIrh.p ople. .. The foregoing action of the Grand Lodge of Georgia was submitted to the Grand Fountain of the United Order of True Re formers, by the G. W. C. Templar, JAmes G. Thrower, in person, accompanied by State Deputies R. A. Varnedoe and Rev. iH. K. Shackleford, on the 31st day of October. The deputation was received with the hon ors of the Grand Fountain, and the propo sition to change the Grand and Subordinate Fountains from the United Order of True Reformers to that of the Independent Order of Good Templars was received amid great applause, and accepted, a very large major iry voting for immediate change-some, however, preferring to submit the matter to the Subordinate Fountains. This was con sidered the most proper way. In the mean time, Fountains send in their applications for charters. Grand Lodge of Good Temp lars for the colored people on the second Tuesday in December, in the city of At lanta. The indications now are that be tween thirty and forty Lodges will be rep resented. It is also believed that all the Southern States will adopt the same plan as Georgia has. She being the pioneer in the Whole movement, the rest will, it is hoped, follow. The following statistics are said to be cor rect; if they are, Cincinnati certainly takes the lead in drinking : " New York, with a population approxi mating 1,000,000, has 5,700 saloons, or one to every 175 inhabitants. Chicago, with nearly 500,00 population, has about 2,000 saloons, or one to every 250 inhabitants. Boston, with 300,000 inhabitants, has only 1,200 saloons, or one to every 250 inhabi tants. Cincinnati, with 225,000 population, has 2,100 saloons, or one to every 107 inhab itants. Philadelphia, shows, with a popu lation of about 800,000, 2,700 saloons, or one to every 296 inhabitants.. Baltimoree leads off in having a population' of 300,000; 2,000 saloons, or a drinking.place for every 150 of its inhabitants. THE GREAT REFORM. We notice, with much pleasure, the indi cations of a more general and public advo cacy of total abstinence by the so-called se cret temperance societies. Many opportu nities are presented for reform work in the everyday walks of life; and the fact that the best and most effective labors are accomn plished by those who take but little interest in the secrets, gips, and passwords hias aroused the slumbering ideas of some of our Associations. Public addiesses and public meetings are now the order of the day, and those societies who have adopted° these measures are meeting with gratifyiug results. T'he great masses of the community are ieady to endorse all measures tending to check this greatest of evils; and before anotlheryear rolls by we shall, as a people, rise up in the strength of our convictions, end demand a law which shall secure to us the.enjoyment of perfect freedom from the traffic in all that can intoxicate. The tem perance cause has assumed a new phase, and it is now the recognized and avowed duty of all honest men, irrespective of par ty,to protect the interest, the homes, and the families of the reformed men in our Com monwealth. Friends of temperance every where are anxiously watching the reform movement, and hopefully considering the prospects of its permanence. Nothing but earnest, watchful labors will keep, at its present'high position, the temperance senti ment of this State. Nothing but absolute prohibition will save to the people the ben efits which hate accured from the temper ance reform of the past few years.-Ex.
