THE CIRCULATION OF THE "DIS PATCH " IS LARGER THAN THE COM BINED CIRCULATION OF ALL THE OTHER DAILY NEWSPAPERS OF THIS CITY. THE ODD-FELLOWS. i ;> .* :: : *7 I SEMI-CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION THE PROCESSION IN PHILADELPHIA. Philadelphia, April 26.?To-day the, Odd-Fellows celebrated the semi-oenten nial anniversary of the establishment of their Order in this country. The celebra tion was the grandest affair of the kind ever seen in this country. Delegations were present from all sections of the United , States, and the affair was one vrell calcu lated to impress the public at large with a favorable idea of the wide-spread influence j of the Order. The weather was fine, and the whole city was decorated with .flags, and Broad street, where the Lodges formed in procession, was alive with spectators. The route of maroh was about four miles! in length. The streets were thronged with citizens and strangers, and a salute of 100 i guns was fired at Penn Square in honor of | the occasion. THE EXERCISES, ADDRESSES, ETC. At about 9 o'clock A. M. the exorcises at the Academy of Music commenced, and were very impressive. The vast building was filled to overflowing. The music was very fine. After an address of welcome by Past Grand Master Stokes, and responded to by Grand Sire E. D. Farneworth, James L. Ridgely, Esq., of Baltimore, Grand Secretary to the Grand Lodge of the United States, delivered an historical oration upon the Order. He reviewed very minutely the rise and progress of the Order, its difficul-1 ties and discouragements in its early days; both in Europe and America. He then spoke of the origin of the Order in Balti* more, and eulogized those who introduced it there, particularly Thomas Wildey, John Welch, John Duncan, John Cheatham, and Richard Rushwood. After referring to thi house where tbey met to form the first Lodge in Baltimore, known as Washington Lodge, he gave a long review of the slow growth and subsequent prosperity cf the Order in Baltimore, and its final increase, against many prejudices and obstacles, in all the States of the UnicD, Canada, &c. Speaking of Odd-Fellowship generally, Mr. Ridgely remarked: * 441 would impress upon my brethren the important truth that Odd-Fellowship is not a religious society'. Let "no mistakes be made upon a subject so momentous and grave a3 this, involving as it does the highest interests of the soul. Our labors concern this world ; the relations of man to man in it; the education and training of the heart to practical beneficence. Whilst we regard our own echeme with special l'avor, and well adapted to the end, we are not arrayed againet other and noble form6 of effort in the same direction ; nor is our work and its fruits vaunted before the pub lic gaze ; yet the footprint of Odd-Fellow ship has so indelibly marked its path duriDg fifty years that its god-like virtue can no more be obscured than may truth itself be stricken from the moral firmament." Mr. Ridgely concluded by referring in fceliDg terms to Meesrs. John Bojd and Augustus Mathiot, of Baltimore, the only two surviving members of Washington Lodge, and to Mr. Benjamin Daflin, for merly of Pennsylvania, but now, and for ( several years, a resident of Baltimore. HISTORT OF TIIE ORDER. The first Odd Fellows' Lodge in the United States was organized in Baltimore on the 26th of April, 1819, by Thomas Wildey ; and although the Order had but a feeble existence for some years, it continued to grow, and it gradually increased in popu larity and influence. The Order is a bene ficial organization, and it carries out in the fullest manner the injunction which forms the motto on the seal of the Grand Lodge of the United States, 44 We command you to; visit the sick, bury the dead, and educate the orphan "?and during the half century which has just expired, the sum of $20, 153,592 has been expended for these ob jects. From this fund, relief was afforded to 684,189 members and to 55,188 families which the death of husbands and fathers placed under the care of the Order. Du ring the year 1868 the sum of $951,556.21 was expended for the same objects, or near-, ly one-twentieth of the whole amount of ] the entire half century. Since the foun dation of the Order in the United States 606,327 members have been initiated, and on the 30th of June, 1868, there were 3,195 grand and subordinate Lodges in the United States, and over 245,000 members. THE PARADE. The procession moved at 12 M. in twenty grand divisions and with forty-two bands of music. There were about 30,000 Odd Fellows in the line of procession; 40,000 reported to the committees here; but in consequence of the heat of the day about 10,000 of them did not take part in the pa rade. The sixteenth division embraced the sub ordinate Lodges of the District of Columbia and New York, and the division was mar shaled by John C. Shafer, of Washington. The entire procession was headed by Grand Marshal Thomas A. Rowley, of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. The appearance of the procession was very fine in Broad street, but in the nar rower streets it was difficult to get a view of it, exoept from some elevation. By the regulations, only the collars of regalia were worn. These and the rich decorations of the Grand Lodges and Encampments, and badges and banners, served somewhat to relieve the sombre black. The men walked eight abreast. The day was obeerved as a holiday; the public schools wen closed; cannons were fired, and everybody was on the street. The Enoampment members were in black aprons and gloves, the Patriarchs who have attained the Royal Purple Degree wearing purple collars onlyK trimmed with lace or fringe. Past Chief Patriarchs, purple col lars. The Grand Representatives wore collars of purple velvet, with a roll of soarlet velvet, trimmed with white and yellow metal, the collar united in front with three links. The Lodges and Encampments of Mary land formed the seventeenth and eighteenth divisions of the procession. Colonels S. S. Mills and Joshua Lynch, chief marshals; and Major Philip M. Snowden, Colonel Robert G. King, J. Peck Dukehart, and John F. Reinicker, assistant marshals. OBSERVANCES IN OTHER CITIES. The anniversary was well observed in j other oities. There was considerable dis play at Boston, where, some forty-six; Lodges, in full regalia, with banners, &c., marched in procession, winding up with a banquet at night. About twenty Now Hampshire Lodges gathered at Manchester from different parts of the State, and an oration was. delivered by Bev. A. A. Miner, of Boston. There was ft large celebration at Coving SfT-T'f TA Tif* 2tH ? 1C- j ton, Ohio, in "which the Cincinnati Lodges joined. A grand ball last night wound up the celebration in Wilmington, N. C. There was a large procession at Alexandria, Va., joined by Lodges from Leesburg. Hugh La tham, Esq., grand marshal, and Rev. James G. McCabe, orator. In the WeBt, the Odd-Fellows of Illinois gathered at Peoria to the number of two thousand five hundred, besides the resident members, and there was a procession, speechesj ball, and supper. The Odd-Fel lows of northern Io tva gathered at Dubuque, with the same programme?Rev. J. D. Hanson and Professor Charles Kretohner were the orators. The celebration in St. Louis, Mo., was a grand affair, with over forty Lodges in procession?Hon. William Wallace, of Indiana, delivered the oration. At Indianapolis about forty Lodges of the city and State were out?Vice-President Colfax was present on Saturday to attend, but was suddenly called away by illness in his family. The display was the greatest ever seen in Indiana.

Shippers and merchants will take notice, and procure their permits, pay their license tax, &c., before that time. We have heard but one expression, and that of regret, at the displacement or Gen eral Mulford. By his attention to business, his kind and courteous manners and gen tlemanly bearing, he ha3 won the respect and confidence of our entire community, and there is not one but would have peti tioned for his retention in the ofhoe. We hope that we may be able to say the same of his successor. Fxecutive.?The Governor has acted breaking into a house and stealing goods of the value of fifteen dollars.

The charges reoently made aga ne . Ward well, and which were published in the Dispatch a day or two since, have attracted the notice of General Canby, and we learn that it ia his intention to appoint a board of army officers for the purpose of examining into them. The board will be appointed f01TheRichmond correspondent of the Pe tersburg Index, in noticing these charges, Wardwell, in reply to these clmges has written a letter, which, leaving the mm issue, proceeds to do up this man Hovev who came to Richmond three years Of the Fre.dm.D-e Bureau, aid achieved hi. first notoriety by receiv inga cowhiding from a gentleman named E?tze, who inflicted this chastisement upon him in the open streets in revenge .or insult offered bis llttle brother. WardwJl says that this comprint is made becausehe discharged Hovey. He namtes how Horey name to him, recommended as a Christian man and a single gentleman, and obtwne employment; and how, soon after, a wo man (with two children) came on from the North claiming to be Hovey's wife, and whom Hovey denied ever having seen be fore ; how, brought down to the point, he agreed to pay her $150 cash and a portion o? his weekly salary to go back and keep " mum," &c., &c. "When this came to Honest Wardweli's knowledge ho sent the school-teacher on his travels. He promises to 1 do up ' Thompson after a little. This is another verification of the good old adage, ' When rogues fall out, honest men get their own.'" United States Circuit Court?Large I. umber of Cases.?The spring term of the United States Circuit Court, District of Vir ginia, meets in this city on the third of next month. Chief Justice Chase is ex pected to be present, and many highly im portant as well as interesting questions wil be brought to the attention of the court. In glancing over the clerk's docket, now prepared, we find sixty-one criminal cases pending. The cases for treason have dis appeared, under the humane proclamation of our former President, and those now re maining are mostly for violation of the in ternal revenue laws. To that docket the court promiees to give special attention, and will no doubt arouse some parties herea bouts who at present seem to be quite in different. The common law docket numbers 215 cases, eleven of which are cases of appeal from the judgment 6f the lower court un der the confiscation act, and eighteen cases which have been removed from the State courts. The chancery docket numbers eeventy one cases, of which are the celebrated bank suto against the Bank of the Valley in Virginia, the Farmers Bank of Virginia, Exchange Bank of Virginia, Bank of Vir ginia, and Central Bank of Virginia. These suits are followed by auxiliary pro ceedings in the nature of suits to the num ber of over 600, and others are still coming in. Theso proceedings are very nummary in their character, and have been resorted to to compel a settlement by the debtors to the receivers for the banks. " The large increase of business in this court, and its important interest to the community, will thus be perceived. The new judiciary bill lately passed by Con gress, anticipating the increasing business of the United States courts, provides for a resident circuit judge. We would sug gest to our lawyers that it would be to their interest, as well as to the interest of all, to be considering the matter, and to settle upon some good and pure man whom they might recommend for that position. Third Presbyterian Church, Church Hill.?We learn that Rev. William E. Hill, at present of the Union Theological Semi nary, has accepted the invitation of this church to become a " stated supply " to it, and will enter upon his duties on the fourth Sabbath in May. Mr. Hill preached twice on the past Sab bath to^ the congregation, and those who heard him were very favorably impressed toward him.
