In discussing Odd Fellowship, in
its relations to humanity, I must first
give a brief analysis of this animal
that we call man, and when I Barman
I mean woman also. . •
Man, in his composition, bears some
comparison to the steam engine.
Both have a physicalerganiiii and a
The locomotive, with its massive
wheel , its polished cy li nder, its pis
ton, its pipes, its ponderous boiler
and huge furnace, is a superstructure
of inert matter, and is as incapable
of motion as the rocks imbedded in
our everlasting hills. But put water
into its boiler, fire into its furnace,
and it becomes a thing of life and
power. And why? You have en
dowed it with physical elements of
a higher nature ; you have given it a
Man, also, has - a physical caper
structure and• a' motive power. And
here comes in another simile. The
motive power of each is the all im
portant part of their composition.
And still another: the motive power
of both is the unseen part of their
Steam is as invisible as the human
mind. Steam proper is as transpar
ent as the air we breathe, and only
becomes visible when in contact with
air and changed to vapor. And it
'seems to be the rule, that those ele
ments in nature that are the farthest
removed from our senses, or our com
prehension, hold the more important
offices in the economy of the universe.
Inert matter, or solid earth, conies
directly within ,the range of our
senses. We can see it, feel it, mea
sure it, and weigh it; yet it is but the
loundation,‘the site on which is rear
ed the orpnin superstriictures of the
world. - And is not-the city of more
importance than the location? Aid
as we ascend the scale, and view the
city, the first step from the solids is
the liquids: - . We fiffilthera

enders-along our beautiful "streams;
like a thing of life, on their inclined
beds to the, °ern. They rise in ira
per, encom pass our earth in clouds;
',descend in' ram, and perform an lin-
I portant part in the: building tip of
earth's productions , . -
And as we take another step, and
contemplate the fluids, we find them
less comprehensible and more impor
tent. "I%e wind bloweth *here it :
listeth, than hearest them:mind there- ,
1 of ; but canst not tell' iirlieruxiiteem - -`
etb, or whither it goeth."

are• divisible, and correspond in num
ber, to.all the various faculties of the
human mindl , any one of ;which can :
command the action of the physical
organism, unless counteracted by an
' other power in the same mind. To
illustrate thii point, 1
that in your life experience you have
often found your acquisilivenen hold
ing fast to the, pi:metal:rine, while
your benevolence would fain give alms
to the needy. And this contwidic
, tion, this discord in our natures, is
an anomaly that cannot be found
again in all animate matter.
We find no other animals engaged
in moitatcombakto-day, and to-mor
row visiting their ni lased ana fallen
foes, administering to their wants,
trying too alleviate their sufferings,
and expressimg sympathy and sorrow
for their situation.
This is the block on which many a
student of man: has tloluidered..- :and
fallen. The only solution of' this
question is, man is an embryo, and
yet to be developed.
Beside these numerous minor di-
visions of mind, man has two grand
divisions of mental power.
These are his moral,• or man na
ture, and his animal nature ; these
are the source of _conflict, and when
ever two or.more of these faculties of
mind come into collision, those giv
ing the strongest, -the most intense
feelings will control the action.. And
It isjust as natural as
_. it is for the
weathervane to turn with the wind,
or the heavier weight to raise the
lighter one. Mental power is men
Man has also the faculties of vind
that the lower animals possess, and
their natural influence or tendency is
the-same in one as the other. Above
these, man possesses other powers of
mind that the lower animals do.not,
which distinguish him from them,
and constitute him man. These are
the reasoning and moral faculties.
We possess the power to trace cause
to effect, and effects to their cause.
This •is reasoning by induction, and
we call the faculty causality.
We also have the power of com
parison,-by which we compare this
thing with that thing, this event with
that- event, and draw an inference,
which. is reasoning by analogy.
Our moral • faculties, are benevo-`
lence,.consciousness, ideality, spirit
nalityr or veneration. But among
these benevolence towers abovethem
all,—her only object is the good of
her fellow beings ; she hai3 no regard
for self, and can only be called into
exercise by the needs, the wants, the
stdferings of other beings'.; her only
objeCt is,their prat:thew happine:w
This .is an element of the DiVine
mind, bestowed on us, His sentient
beings, and constitutes those golden
chains of sympathy that bind noi-all
together, and all to Thin. This is
the lending faculty in the minds of
angels, for they .are continually on.
messages of love and mercy. And if
we would have the enjoyments of an
:gels, we must live the lives of angels.
These higher :faculties of our na
ture, that distinguish us from the
brute Creation and constitute us hu
man, are the sources of all human ex
cellence, the foundation of all good
among men. You may call them the
religions or the moral faculties ; they
are one and the same "thing. The
rose by any other name smells just
as sweet. They produce good—they
were bestowed upon us by. our Crea
tor for good—they are of Divine ori-'
-.-. This brings us all on a natural
equality • we - have -all one Father ;
we are all ushered into being by the
same humble process.; we are all
sustained through life by, the same
natural laws ] and - the' to mb is the
- coil:upon leveler of all. -
Now if there are any that still

every faculty of the hunian organism
= physical or mental. We know that
if we exercise our organ of tune,-we
increase our musical powers.. If we
.exercise our organ of Ideality, in the
decoration of our persons, or our
houses, in beautifying our grounds,
in the cultivation of flowers, or what
ever is beautifitl in nature or in art;
we become more and more enamor
ed with the love of the beautiful. If
we exercise our reasoning powers, we
become better reasonera. If- we ex
ercise our moral faculties, we become
better men—better women—better
citizens—better Odd Fellows. -
To cultivate these higher qualities
of, our natures', by action and exero
ciao, by precept and practice, is the
true province of Odd Fellowship.
And who that attends our lodges,

Our opening charge by the N.G. is a
conception of the highest morals.

from the same source. Our initia

truth and candor among <men the
disinterested benevolence that Leks
the good of others, all breathe forth
sentiments' that are worthy the con
ception of angels. And last, though
not least, the distribution of our
funds to the needy, our donations of
kind services in the hours of sickness
and bereavement, all tend to culti
'ate, strengthen and build up „the
good within us.
Odd .Fellowship seeks the elevation
of human character on these natural
principles. And with its beautiful
moral emblems (that constitute its
unwritten language), its precepts and
its practice, combines within itself

difference to our active county Sun

tenden, I must beg lief to say, that
the sb called Union Sunday Schools
are-failures; that is in • making the
Sunday School a permanent institu

tion of the country, there is not S.
single Union Sunday :School, alive
and . working during these winter
Sabbaths. However; 'there, may be
some, but RS'a general thing they
live but four months in the year.'
. Since we have different Aenomiia-
lions, and no doubt,always will hive,
I believe in denominational Sun lay
Schools. Not, however, for the pur
pose of teaching a denominational
dogma. F'or, I believe there is but
one doctrine which should be`ear
lastly insisted upon in the Sunday,
School, viz, Salvation through' thit
blood of Christ—in this we all agree.
Then they have denominational
schools? Simply for this reason, that
there may me a head, or a denomi
nation that feels responsible for the
What is 'everybody's business is
nobodys business, is just as true in
regard to Sunday Schools as any
Now I believe that the foresent
plan might be improved, viz, when a
Sunday School is organized the first
question should be, what Denomina
tion will take the school and become
responsible for its success? Then
whether it be Congregational, Bap
tist, Presbyterian or Methodist, let
thorn work it according to their own
plans, not four months in • the year,
but from year to year.
Religion is the same, hence we
need not talk union to unite chris

- - A FORTUJATE in& _ -
The following pretty little story is
narzsted:by Fre& Wks Bremer, who
vouches' for its tnithiehtess.:`
In the Univerlit'y of Upeals; in
Sweden, lived a young student, a no
ble youth, with great love for studies,
but without means for pursuing , them.
He was poor, without connections.—
Still he atudied,living in great pover
ty, but keeping a cheerful heart, and
trying to look at the future _which
looked so grim at 'him. His good
humor and excellent qualitiei made
him hawed by 'his comrades. One
day he was standing on the square
frith some of them, prattling away an
hour of leisure, when the attention
of the young man became arrested
by a 7onfig and elegent lady, who, by
the sidtt j hf an older one, was slowly
walking over the place. It was' the
daligliUr of the Governor of. Upsala,
living in the city, and the. lady was
her governess. She was generally
known for her goodness and gentle
ness of character; and looked at with
admirathm by Ail . the- students. As
the young man stood gazing at horse
she passed on like 'a graceful vision,
one of them suddenly exclaimecl.—
" Well, it would be worth something
to have a kiss from such a mouth :
The poor student, the hero. of 'onr;
story, who looked on that pure, angel
ic face; exclaimed, as if by inspiration,
" Welt, I think I could have it."
"Well!" . cried his friends
chorus, "axe you .crazy? Do 1 yon
know her ? "
"Not at all;" he answered- "liwat I
think she would kiss xrie if I asked
" What, in this, place, before all our
eyes? " r
Freely ? 7,
" Well, if she would give yowa kiss
in t h at manner I will give you a
thoumnd dollars! " exclaimed one of
the - party. - •
" nd I," " and I," exclaimed three
or four others, for it happened that
several rich men Were in the group;
and The bets ran high - on so improba
ble an event.,
The chal l eng e trig made, and re
ceived-in less time than are take to
tell it • .
Our hem (our authority tells not
whether he 'was plain or handsome—
I have niy peenhar reasons for believ
ing that he was rather plain, but
eingnlarly good looking at the same
time) immediately walked hp to the
yolnig lady and said, " iteine fraulein,
my fortune is'now in your hands."
She looked at him with astonish
ment, but arrested her steps.. He
proceeded to state his name and con
dition, his, aspirations, and related
simply what had just now passed be
tween him and his comrades.
The-young lady l4tened attentively,
and at his ce_as ing to speak she said,
blushingly, but with great sweetness,
"If by so little a thing so much can
be effected it would be:foolish for me
to refuse your request ;" and publicly
in the open aqitare, 'she kissed hiui.
Next day the student - was sent for
by the Governor. He wanted to see
the man who dared to seek a kiss
from his daughter in that way, and
whom she consented to kiss.
He received 10m with a scrutinizing
look, but aftelan'hour's conversation
was, so pleased with him that ha or
dered hun to dine at-his table during
his studies in Upside.
Our young friend pursued r his (
studies in such a manner that it s oon
made him regluded as the , nost prom
ising student in the University.
Three years were now passed si ce
the first kiss, when this young MAD
was allowed to give a second kiss to
the daughter of the Governor as his
later, one of the most
noted scholars in Sweden, and was
much respected for his character.—
His works will endure 'while time
lasts among the " works of science
and from this happy union !prang - a
family whose wealth and high posi
tion in society 'are regarded as trifles
in comparison with its goodness and
love.—Happy Hours. .
