M.?The Order of Red Men , in tbls city will celebrate tbe anniversary of Tammany's day, on the 12th inst,, by a parade, as will be seen by an advertisement elsewhere. In this con: nection it may prove interesting to our readers to give a condensed account of i the origin of the order which is increasing very rapidly throughout the country : There exists in the recollection of some of the older members of the present day an early tradition, once popular, which points to Port Mifliin, on the Delaware river, as the birthplace of the society, and that sometime during the period intervening between the vear 1812 and 1814, as the lime of the kind3 ling of Its first conncll-fire. The spirit j of hatred, strife, and disgust which em' bittered the feelings of the conflicting factions, was not long confined to tbe t civil community outside; but passing, as it were unseen, by the sentinels, it ' made its appearance and disseminated t its demoralizing influence among the . soldiers of the garrison. Some of the more influential and patriotic of the volunteers within the fort, viewing with apprehension and fear |he threatening consequence of the power ' at work among them to their country - and its free institutions, and rising t above the machinations of party to the true level of patriotism, proposed and effected among the soldiers the organization of a secret society, fortified by ' signs, gripsand passwords, the object of i which was to dispel discord and dls, Beminate friendship. Their efforts, as we are told, were attended with the ' happiest results, for in a very short t time after their organization was completed a marked change was visible in the tone and temper of the garrison. . Where before had beendistrust, hatred, and the manifestations of angry paBSion, was now kindness, good fellowship, , and brotherly regard?amity of sentiment and unity of purpose prevailing in every heart, as tbe soldiers at Fort Mifflin emerged from the Council of ' Ked Men where they had pledged . themselves to patriotism aud frater, nity. At the close of the war their council fire was necessarily quenched, the gar! rison disbanded, and the volunteers rer turned to their homes. But recollections of the past, the charms of an association so patriotic in its origin and purpose, and which had been so productive of good in the past, when the 1 dark mantle of adversity hung like a , pall upon the country, with the natural i desire to perpetuate and extend it, were the incentives to revive the society. Accordingly a call was inserted in one or more of the newspapers of Philadei: phia for a Council of the Red Men, which resulted in the organization of what was subsequently known as the Tribe of Colnmbia of the Society of i Red Men of Philadelphia. ! Such in brief is substantially the traditional history of the origin of the 1. O. R. M., aB preserved (among others) ' in the recollection of the venerable Mr. P. G, I. Marley. Richard Marley was admitted and adopted by the society on | the evening of the 9th of Septeinb r, 1824, and received the name of Moose Deer'x lirother, and, therefore, was acquainted with many of the principal members, utyd familiar with the origin and hislory,,f.hey would ascribe to it. Besides, there is internal evidence found in tbe military character of the organization, which proves it to have been the work of military men. But whilst the I SOUieiy IM IUiiuiittiu 1U luw puoaoaoiuu ui the tradition, preserved in part at least f by Mr. Marley, and verified to some ex i tent by authentic documentary evidence, tolimit its origin to as latea date as the war of 1811-15 is not strictly correct. Indeed, there is in the records of the society presumptive, as well as contemporaneous external evidence, that , it originated at a much earlier day; and it is as probable that it took its rise during the Revolutionary War as during that of 1612-15, and the origin attributed to the society at Fort Milllin may have been but the reorganization of preexisting fraternal elements by the volunteers ; for kindred purposes. , Drake, in his "History and Biography of the North American Indians,'* speaking ol Tammany, says: "The fame of this great man extended even among the whites, who fabricated numerous legends ooncernieg him. * * , In the Revolutionary war his enthusiastic admirers dubbed him a saint, and he was established under the name of Saint Tammany, the patron saint of America. His name was Inserted in some of the calendars, and his festival celebrated on the first ol May in every year. On that day a numerous society of his votaries walked together in procession through the streets of Philadelphia, their hats decorated with bucktails, and proceeded to a handsome rural place out of town, which they called the Wi&wam; where, after a , long talk or Indian speech had been , delivered, and the calumet of peace , and friendship had been duly smoked, they spent the day in festivity and j mirth. After dinner Indian dances ] were performed on the green in front of the Wigwam, the calumet was again smoked, and the company separated. There were two days in the calendar of our early Red Men which were held i sacred?tho22d of February and the i 1 '1th of Mag, Of the first, it is unnecessary lor the purpose of this report to say any thing further. Of the latter, we 1 may remark that it is invariably ob- j served as a feast. [It is worthy of note , in this place that the by-laws of 1S17 fixes the birthday of Captain Williams, ' who Jell in delence of Fort Erie on the < 14ih of August, 1814, as the day for y holding the "anniversary meetings of the society."] The particular day, however, is left blank, in those laws, and subscqent documentary evidence shows their feasts to have been observed on the 1 2f/t of Mag?Saint Tammany's day. On the morning of the 12th of May the Red Men's Society assembled at a designated place, usually at the house of a member, and decorated with the badges and Insignia of their rank, with banners llying, and to the sound of stirring music, } took up their line of march through the streets of the city, and "proceeded to some previously secured rural spot within convenient distance, t where the day was spent in the manner described in the quotation just cited. The fact of their having invariably eel- * ebrated the feast of Saint Tammany in c the ostentatious and public manner , just described, will account for their . having been known to the community outside as the Saint Tammany Society, i Public notice of their assembling on ? that occasion was given in the newspa- ? pers of the day, and by quaint red handbills, worded in the peculiar phra- 1 seology of the society, which were ? posted on the street corners, in public g houses, and other public places.? } "Drake's History and Biography," fixes upon the first of Mag as the feast 8 of Saint Tammany; bus the original t documents in the possession of the chairman of your committee, and which will be considered more at length in their proper place In this report, incontestably prove the day observed to have been the 12th of May. It must be borne in mind that the society rested upon a national basis; that whether the theory be adopted that it originated anions the volunteers at Fort Aliftlin In 1812 14, or regard it as the successor of a still earlier society existing among: the soldiers of the Revolution, national politics formed a conspicuous feature of the organization. Down as late as 1S17, and even to 1S27, this feature is clearly visible in it. An old report of a committee appointed to icGuiro into the character and principle's of an applicant for membership, settles this question in the following emphatic words: "That he is a citizen, of good moral character, and of uniform and correct political principles, and is well entitled to a seat in the Wigwam." In an old copy of by-laws, preserved in the archives ol the Great Council of the United States, the complexion of the political bias, indicated thus early in the order, 1b clearly shown by a pro- ' vision disqualifying persons who were not citizens, or who either owned or held slaves, from becoming members. Thus far the society was no doubt political, taking its rise among military men, who were thoroughly imbued with Americsn sentiments, and prior to the development of the intensely bitter animosity and local prejudices, which at a later day, grew out of the agitation of the slavery question; it was considered national without being considered political in any partisan sense, and hence the injunction already quoted Irom the early ritual. The officers of the Great Council are designated: Great Sachem, Great Senior J ana un Ajuuuaw. . Sagamore, Great Junior Sagamore, Great Chief ot Records, Great Chief of 8 Wampum, Great Prophet. At a recent meeting of the Great ? Council of the United States, the fol- ' lowing gentlemen were elected officers: r Great Incohonee, James A. Parscms, j Camden, N. J. , Great S. S., Geo. W. Lindsay, Balti more, Md. 1 Great J. S., Adam Smith, San Fran- j Cisco, Cal. , Great Prophet, Joseph Pyle, Wilmingion. Bel. Great C. of R., M. H. Gorham, Phila- 1 delphia, Pa. Great K. of'W., Wm. Benson, Balti- i more, Md. a Great Tocakon,, J. W. Herbert, Philadelphia, Pir. Great Minewa, John G. Snyder, Chil- , licothe, Ohio. ' We extract ithe following from the ' report of the Grant Incohonee: i I am in possession of facts which warrant me in asserting that prosperous results of a character not heretofore realized by our order have closed the labors of the closing grand sun. c For a full statement touching the con- t dition of the Wampum Belt, and the uumerical standing of the institution, I must refer you to the reportB of the 1 Great Chiefs of their special depart- J ments.. Hut in reference to the former, E I may say its condition is gratifying; F and of the latter, that our hunting grounds now contain more great coun- 1 ciis and tribes, aud a larger member- e ship by far than heretofore. ; During the past grand sun iu every "assigned tract,''with a Bingie fexception, the augmentation in tribes and 4 membership have been gratifying ; whilst in some hunting grounds the 1 accession, in both tribes and member- t! ship, has been bo rapid and extensive as to increase the number of Red Men over that of one grand sun ago by sev- i eral thousands. Tribal council-tires are now brightly burning in seventeen jur- ( isdictlons, whilst the future is pregnant with most auspicious promises touching their being kindled elsewhere. The t capacityof the orderforthe accomplish- , ment of its great moral aud intellectual purposes has been highly improved c aud its usefulness largely extended, c Tribes have been organized during the c past year in Louisiana, Indiana, Texas aud California. As to the origin of the name Incoho* l nee the report says : c A thorough research ot Indian history aud our own records, aB well as extended iuuuirv of those most likelv to be in possession of the knowledge, Iiub failed to reveal either tlie derivation 6 or Biguifioation of the word Incohonee. v Hence, touching this prominent point t in an institution professedly founded upon the primitive history of ourcountry, we are without information. My impressions that we ought to conform in ull things possible most closely to tbe extant aboriginal history, or furnish some acceptable and intelligible reason \ for departing therelrom, are so Btrong ] that I could not forbear making reference hereto. As the case stands no intelligible answer can be given to tbe . Ked Man or pale face who may seek for 1 the ineaniDg of the name applied to the 1 chief whose duty and honor it is to f preside at the Great Council Fire.? What the effect upon intellectual minds must be, of receiving Buch replies as c the present means of knowledge of the j subject supplies, may be left to conjec- j ture. But as a reasonable question it may be suggested whether as intelli- 1 gent Ked Men, and the supreme trlbn- t nalof the great and growing organisation, we should not introduce some plan to remove the present unhappy condition of that subject, and to thiB end it cannot be inopportune to refer to other names which would be entirely free from the objections resting upon J the one now applied to the presiding " chiel. Tudodaho (Todo-dah ha) was the name of the most noble sachem or . principal chief of the Iroquois. The latter was tbe name of several tribeB who united themselves under one gov- eminent? a veritable institution, occupying a prominent place in history, and justly distinguished forthe wisdom of their laws and true greatness of the people in all moral and intellectual respects. Yeoughwannawago (Yea-o- waunawauga) was the Indian name of Francis Shallus with whose history, and his 1 connection with our organization, all 1 who have read the able report of the committee on the history of the order are familiar. He stood at the head of the organization many grand suns, p and successiully d irerted its affairs until removed by the Great Spirit to the happy bunting grounds of his fathers. Under the able management of J Yeoughwannawago the Society of lied Men acquired distinction, at that early period, as one of the institutions of these bunting grounds, and was assigned a place in history. It is fair to presume he was one of the founders of the -i organization, and undoubtedly was tbe I tirst Great Chief who achieved for it a J foundation and reputation that has resulted in itB permanency and preservation. Base Ball.?We have received the acoro of a match game ot base ball ^ played Saturday last between tbeOaceala and Arctic clubs. Our educationin n such matters was shockingly neglected in early life.

Kew Firm.?It will be seen by refermce to an advertisement in another lolamn that the firm of Dillon, Thomplon & Co. has been dissolved, and a lew one formed by two members of he old company together with Mr. Tacob B.
