We frequently hear it objected to the in

sphere ofbenes;olence. There is a

you not come out and give it to the world,
so that all may enjly its benefit? Moreo
ver, they cannot endure the thought that
one man should be relieved in sickness and
distress unless all others are made parta—
kers in the .ame benefit, and hence again
they ask, why do you confine your relief
to your own members instead of relieving
all who need ai,l7 In answer to the first
question. it is sufficient to say that it is
based entirely upon a misapprehension of
the order. All that is of service to the
world is made known and may be the pro-
party of any who choose to avail them
selves of its advantages. We have never
intimated that we were in possession of
any great secrets of vast importance to be
known, and a revelation of all the myste
ries•of the Order would confer no benefit
upon society. On the contrary, the secrets
of Odd-Fellows are only useful to Odd-
Fellows in enabling them to detect the
impostor, and preserve themselves from
his_attempts at deception, and they derive
their• utility solely from the inherent pow
er _to du good to the word. To reveal them
therefore would do the world no good, but
it would render them useless to ourselves
and all others.
Hete'then the verist may see the rea
sott, and the only reason why we do not
spread:out to the-gaze of the world all the
secrets of the Order.
The ether questioo, which asks why we
do.not relieve indiscriminately the wants
of the suffering might properly he answer
ed-by asking another. Suppose we were
to Inquire of the interrogator himself; Sir,
why do you not relieve all the distress you
see around you? And why do you not feed
allithexhildreu.you see instead of confining
your provisions to`rinse of your own house?
We presome theta would be no difficulty
in silitaining a definite answer, that the as ,
bilityas wanting. We pray you then allow
us theAreoefit of the same plea. We are
in possession of no philosopher's stone
which is, able to change every thing into
gold, nor are our stor6s sufficiently abun
dant to enable "its to relieve all the suffer
ings of the world. It would be very con•
venient no doubt to have our almshouse
exempt of their inmates to be supported
by Odd-Fellows; and we have little doubt
but it would, be well pleasing to our friend
the objector, himself, when asked for alms
to be able to say; "no, I never relieve the
poor, but yonder is al Odd Fellow's hall,
and there you will be sure to find relief."
Nor are we disposed to deny that it would
be well pleasing to us to be the Remit of
distributing, ao wide and universal relief to
the sufferings of our fellow being. But
where shall we obtain the funds? —Will
our-friend the objector be one who will
furnish- his full quoto of the expense?
Since, then the sphere of our efforts must
of necessity be limited, where shall the
limit be fixed?
The nature-of the institution fixes these
limits at once. It is formed for :natant
aid, and-its funds are gathered tinder the
express-stipulation that each member in
need, shall have not merely the poor
lege of receiving charity-tram the Order,
but a-just, and legal right to specified time

The large attendance of Delegates at the
Convention yesterday, was the best indi
cation that could be desired of the feelings
of the democracy of Allegheny county on
the Presidential question. The morning
was wet, cold and unpleasant, and we did
not suppose tbat there would be any 'rep
resentation from the distant districts, but
when the hour for meeting arrived, we
were agreeably disappointed to find that
some of the furthest off townships in the
county, were represented by men who
have grown grey in the service of the par
ty, and who, on this occasion, were willing
to brave the inclemency of the season, to
testify their approval_of the object of the
Convention. Fifirfour delegates presen •
ted their credentials and took their seats in
the Convention, and if the day had been
fair we have no doubt but every district in
the county would have been represented.
As it was, the convention was much larger
than any that has ever assembled fir a
similar purpcee, and it may be taken as a
sure evidence that the democracy of Alle
gheny have a proper conception of the
rights of our good old state and Cie posi
tion she should assume on the Presiden
The resolutions and proceedings will be

The Philadelphia Times is particu
larly hard on the . Court of General
Sessions over which his Honor, Judge
Barton, presides ; When the Jury in the
Van Vliet case returned their• verdict, i.
was received by a burst of applause; and
when the accused was discharged by proc
lamation, the audience again gave another
round in spite of the efforts of the Court
to suppress it. The Times then goes on
to say—This is something certainly novel
in a court of justice! It's not justice. It
is wrong—decidedly wrong. It indicates,
however, in the strongest manner, the lit
' tle feeling of respect entertained by the
community for the C )urt of General Ses'.
sions. Such a scene could not have taken
place before Judge Baldwin of the United
States Circuit, before Judge King of the
Common Pleas, or either of the Judges of
the Supreme Court. It would not have
been dreamed of. And why'? Because
for those Courts there is ta feeling of res
pect, almost amounting to awe, felt by the
public—a respect generated by dignity of
conduct, and integrity of purpose—while
in the Court of General Sessions every
man acts as though he were in a theatre,
witnessing the performance of a tragedy
or a farce, and fee's himself at perfect
berty to hiss or applaud and hoot as his
impressions prompt him. We only wore•
der they don't sometimes cry encore.—
When is this nuisance to be abolished.
Another Defalcation in the N. Y. May-
We learn from the Union that Mr. J. ii. 'Nerd.
fate first Marshill iu the Mares office, New
Yo-k, was arrested on Saturday on a charge of
having committed frauds and defalcittons to the

Agent of the Health C-munissioners, in making
false entries and appropriating the amounts not
credited, of hospital mimic% received from alien
passengers, to his own use.
The defalcations as charged have been g ling on
for two years, and in one install te, it is stated,
11164 was received tr in pasiengers, he giving
credit only fur $6l, and so on in lesser sums. Mr.
