From Godry'b Lad} 's Book for July
The Battle of Life.
BY sA.7.ItEL b. PA.TrER,ON.
The bottle is raging! Trhy, 'warrior, away!
boat thou listlessly stand from the din of the fray,
With thy head drooping low, and thy hand on thy brow
As 00 Life and its conflict were naught to thlc now?
Why motionless thou, whilst the gathering throng,
In double-mailed armor, are rushing along,
And the clangor of battle around thee is heard,
And the trumpet's loud tone every spirit has stirred'
But lately, thy beam was absorbed in the fight,
13u1 lately. its trophies were viewed ssith delight,
And the might of thy arm,.and thy courage, could vie
With the strongest :slid bravest who nosy pass thee by
Their serried ranks more ; but the noise of their tread
Nlesits thy ear as it falls on the ear of the dead :
strange that a summons, once needless, should now
Wale ut, file in thy eye, and no light on thy brow!
Cr.n it be that, before hyalite's tattle is done,
Ere the contest is past and the victory won,
Thy spirit has shrunk from the strife raging there,
And been blighted, consumed by the touch of Despair
Can It be that the ardor which once led thee on,
In the con of great hosts, towards the prize to be won,
I las chilled and grown weak nt the threntsof the foe?
Ilan thy arm become nezireless ere striking a blow ?
Awake from thy stupor! Arouse thee again!
Take thy part u the strife—be a man amongst men!
Let tji soul shame the impulse that prompted thy fear
In the hour of trial, when danger was near.
i•Woutast thou list to the roman exultingly cry.
That his threats Id:melted thy cheek, his words forced
thee to fly
Wonldst thou sec thy triettils mourning, in sorrow and
O'er the wreck (.1 - thy glory, the brand on thy name?
Thou cunt not—thou dar'st not! Then up to the field!
Keep thy post in the ranks ILK the factuan shall yteld!
Let no timid doubts shake thee, no terrors dismay—
Stand firm for the truth, and thy valor display !
Be stranr, in the right! 'Tis u panoply sure,
Au mgis to guard thee and keep thee secure ;
Wear it ever; and then 'midst the thickest of strife,
Do thy part, ns thou shouldst, in the Battle of Life
The Fate of a Drunkard.
When the dim and misty light of a winter's
morning penetrated into the narrow court, and
glinteggled-through_the begrirnard window of the
wretched room s Warden awoke from his heavy
sleep, and found himself alone. He rose and
looked round him; the old flock mattress on the
floor was undisturbed; everything was just as
he remembered to have seen it fast, and there
was no sign of any one, save himself, having occu
r pied the room during the night. He inquired of
the other lodgers and of the neighbors; but his
daughter had not been seen or heard of. He
rambled through the streets, and scrutinized each
wretched face, among the crowds that thronged
them, with anxious eyes. But his search was
fruitless, and he returned to his garret when night
came on, desolate and weary.
For many days he occupied himself in the'
same manner, but no traces of his daughter did
he meet with, and no word of her reached his
ears. At last he gave up the pursuit as hopeless.
He had long thought of the probability of her
leaving him, and endeavoring to gain her bread
in quiet elsewhere. She had left him at last to
starve alone. He ground his teeth and cursed
lie begged his bread from door to door. Every
' halfpenny he could wring from the pity or credu
lity of those to whom he addressed himself was
spent in the old way. A year passed over his
head ; and the roof of a jail was the only one
that had sheltered him for many mouths. !le
slept under archways and in brick fields—any
where, where there was some warmth or shelter
from the cold and rain. But in the last stage of
poverty, disease, and houseless want, he was a
At last, one bitter night, he sunk down on a
door-step, faint and ill. The premature decay of
vice and profligacy had worn him to the bone.—
His cheeks were hollow and livid ; his eyes were
sunken, and their sight was dim. His legs trem
bled beneath his weight, and a cold shiver ran
through every limb.
And now the long forgotten scenes of a mis
spent life crowded thick and fast upon him.—
He thought of the time when he had a home—a
happy, cheerful home—and of those who peopled
it, and flocked about him then, until the forms
of his elder children seemed to rise up from the
grave, and stand about him—so plain, so clear,
and so distinct they were, that he could touch
and feel them. Looks that he had long forgotten
were fixed upon him once more ; voices long
since hushed in death,-sounded in his ears like
the music of village bells. But it was only for
an instant. The rain beat heavily upon him;
and cold and hunger were gnawing at his heart
He rose and dragged his feeble limbs a few
paces farther. The street was silent and empty
—the few passers-by, at that late hour, hurried
quickly on, and his tremulous voice was lost in
the violence of the storm. That heavy chill
again struck through his frame, and' his blood
seemed to stagnate beneath it. He coiled him
self up in a projecting doorway, and tried to
But sleep had fled from his dull and glazed
eyes. His mind wandered strangely, but he was
awake and conscious. The well-known shout of
drunken mirth sounded in his ear—the glass was
at his lips—the board was corered with rich food
—they were before him, he could see them all—
he had but to reach his hand and take them—
and though the illusion was reality itself, he
knew that he was sitting alone in the deserted
street, watching the rain drops as they pattered
on the stones; and that there were none to care
for or help him.
Suddenly he started up in the extremity of
terror. He had heard his own voice shouting in
the night air, he knew not what or why. Hark!
A groan! Another! His senses were leaving
him—half formed and incoherent words burst
from his lips; and his hands sought to tear and
lacerate his flesh. He was going mad, and he
shrieked for help till his voice failed him.
He raised his head, and looked up the long,
dismal street. He recollected that outcasts like
himself, condemned to wander day and night in
those dreadful streets, had sometimes gone dis
tracted with their loneliness. He remembered
to have heard, many years before, that a home
less wretch had once been found in a solitary
corner, sharpening a rusty knife, to plunge into
his own heart, preferring death to that endless,
weary wandering to and fro. In an instant his
resolve was taken ; his limbs received new life;
he ran quickly from the spot, and paused not for
breath until he reached the river side.
He crept softly down the steep stone stairs
that led from the commencement of Waterloo
bridge, down to the water's level. He crouched
into a corner, and held his breath as the patrol
passed. Never did a prisoner's heart throb with
the hope of liberty and life half so eagerly as did
that of the wretched man at the prospect of death.
The watch passed close to him, but he remained
unobserved; and after waiting until the sound of
footsteps had died away in the distance, he cau
tiously descended and stood beneath the gloomy
arch that forms the landing place from the river.
The tide was in, and the water flowed at his
feet. The rain had ceased, the wind was lulled,
and all was, for the moment, stall and quiet—so
quiet that the rippling of the water against the
barges that were moored there, was distinctly
audible to his ears. The stream stole languidly
and sluggishly on. Strange and fantastic forms
rose to the surface, and beckoned him to ap
proach; dark gleaming eyes peered from the
water, and seemed to mock his hesitation, while
hollow murmurs from behind urged him onwards.
fie retreated a few paces, took a short run, a des
perate leap, and plunged into the river.
Not five seconds had passed when he rose to
the water's surface, but what a change had taken
place in that short time in all his thoughts and
feelings ! Life, life, in any form ; poverty, mis
ery, starvation, anything but death; He fought
and struggled with the water that closed ov'r
his head, and screamed in agonies of terror. The
cum of his own son rang in his ears. The
shore—hut one foot of dry ground—he could al
most touch the step. One hand's-breadth nearer,
and he was saved—but the tide bore him onward,
under the dark arches of the bridge, and he sank
to th • bottom.
Again he rose, and struggled for life. For one
instant—for one brief instant—the buildings on
the river's banks, the lights on the bridge under
which the current had borne him, the black wa
ter, and the fast flying clouds, were distinctly
visible—once more he sunk, and once again he
rose—bright flames of fire shot up from earth to
heaven, and reeled before his eyes, whilst the
water thundered in his cars, and stunned him
with its furious roar.
A week afterwards the body was washed
ashore some miles down the tiwcr,a swollen and
disfigured mass. Unrecognized and unpitied, it
was born to the grave—and there it has long
since mouldered assay.
Origin of Odd Fellows
The origin of the Order of the Odd-Fellows is
of an ancient date. It was established by the
Roman soldiers in camp after the Order of the
Israelites, during the reign of Nero, the Roman
Emperor, who commenced his reign A. D.. 5.3,
at which time they were called Fellow-Citizens.
The name of Odd-Fellows was given to this Or
der of men (A. D. 79) by Titus Cmsar, Emperor
of Rome, from their singularity of notions, and
from their knowing each other by night as well
as by day; and for their fidelity to him anti
their country. Ile only gave them the name of
Odd-Fellows, but at the same time, as a pledge
of friendship, presented them with a Dispensa
tion engraved on a plate of gold, having the fol
lowing emblems, viz : the Royal Arch of Titus
Cmsar, the Ark of the Covenant, the Golden Can
dlesticks, the Golden Table, (weighing one great
talent,) the Sun for N. G., the Moon and Stars for
V. G., a Lamp for Secretary, the Lion for Guar
dian, the Dove for Warden, and the Emblems of
Mortality for the G. M.
It is very probable that the first Odd-Fellows I
made their appearance in North-Wales about that
time, as an invasion was made by one of Titus
Cassar's Generals (Agricola) on North-Wales,
and shortly afterwards on the Island of Mono,
now called Anglesea.
The first account we haveof the Order spread.
ing into other countries is in the fifth century,
when it was established in the Spanish Domin
ions under the Roman Dispensation, and in the
sixth century by King Henry in Portugal, and in
the twelfth century it was established in France,
and afterwards in England by John DlCevilie,
attended by five knights from France, who
formed a Loyal Grand Lodge of Elonor in London,
which Order remained until the reign of George
111., when a part of them began to form them
selves into an Union, and a portion of them re
mained until this day ; on this account the Lodges
which remain, and are very numerous through
out the world, call themselves Loyal Ancient
Independent Odd-Fellows, being a portion of the

Science Confirming the Bible.
The Rev. Dr. Cumming said, at the annual
meeting of the London Missionary Society—
Another fact is that science has been lately com
ing to its right mind. Some time ago, every
man who had a smattering of science, discovered
among its first axioms, that Genesis was a fable,
and Christianity a dream. Some peering fool,
using a very imperfect telescope, peeped into the
sky, and saw vestiges of everybody in the uni
verse, but none of God. Another dug into the
bowels of the earth, and brought up beautiful
gems and sparkling ores; but upon none of the
gems could any one discover the autograph of
revelation—on none of the ores the beauty and
glory of him who made it. Another person
proved that mankind have some half a dozen-.
or perhaps twelve dozen—original parents, and
the notion of our being descended from Adam
and Eve was a perfect joke, a mere myth, the
vagary of a doting person, called Moses. But
what is the fact now ? Lord Rosse, an Irish no
bleman, has directed his " monster telescope"
to the stars, and the vestiges which he saw there,
which others supposed to be the vestiges of
everybody, have proved to be the foot-prints of
a present God. Another has descended into the
bowels of the earth; and instead of geology being
found to be in dissonance with Christianity, it
proved to be one of the strongest evidences of its
truth. Others have penetrated, into the pyra
mids of Egypt, and mummies have come fort*"
from their sleep of two thousand years;
bulls and monsters •net, as we had never
ceived, have been dug up by the enterp,,,:: g

We speak of our civiiizat ion, et: ails, our free
, dom, our laws—and forget entirely :argc a
share is due to Christianity. Blot
lout of man's history, and NV:i.lt would his laws
have been, what his civilization? Christianity
is mixed up with our very being and our very
life ; there is not a familiar object around us,
Iwhich does not saciir a different aspect, becanse -
the light of Christian love is upon it; not a law
which does not owe its truth and gentleness to
Christianity; rot a custom which cannot be
traced in all its holy, beautiful parts to the Gos
pel. Education, to be permanent and true in its
influence, must partake largely of Christianity
as an clement—and our institutions, to be abid
ing and trustworthy, and to work out all the
good beginnings and just expectations of our
fathers, must be leavened with the Christian ele
ment of preservation.
Dom' The human mind has an insatiable curl
' osity ; there is no end to its speculations and re-
I searches. (lad God, to meet its difficulties,
I given a rule of faith consisting of as many vol
umes as there are chapters in the Bible, it would
still have advanced its conjectures. Instead of
setting it at rest, this would, therefore, only
have thrown it into greater agitation. The bet
ter way of arresting the flight of presumptuous
reason, ever disposed to go beyond its proper
limits, and at the same time to render its know
ledge more sure, was not then to enlarge the
volume of revelation, but to oblige man to re
nounce his curiosity and pride. On this account
it is the will of God that a great part of religion
should consist of humility.
117 — In reading the Holy Scriptures, we cannot
be too thoroughly penetrated with a lively sense
of our insufficiency, as this will place us in deep
dependence on the Spirit of God, and induce us
fervently to implore his influences to abide upon
us.' Even then, we shall really know the truth
only so far as we experience its power. To ad
vance in knowledge, new light must be dispensed
by Him who is its inexhaustible source. That
will be given us if we draw it down by profound
humility, and a faithful improvement of grace
already received. We shall lose that which we
have if we proudly ascribe it to our own efforts,
if we neglect prayer.
17:7 - It is an exchange, marvellously advanta
geous, to give up the little one hes in order to
acquire an inexhaustible source of riches. Put
otr self, and God will clothe you with his grace.
