PRESENTATION—BY JOIIN SCOTT,Jr.
Brethren of Standing Slone Divioion :
I owe to the Ladies of Huntingdon, the honor of
being delegated to present to you, in their names,
this beautiful banner. To meet you at any time
fur the purpose of congratulating you upon the sac
ecsa of the came you have espoused, and inciting
you to persevere in youroirorts, would be a pleasing
mission. Every circumstance connected with this
occasion contributes to render more agreeably the
discharge of that duty with which I have been en
trusted. I address brethren, clothed in those pure
emblems toward which the heart of every "Sun of
Temperance" leaps kindly. We meet on tha natal
day of American Independence, devoted to the cul
tivation of feelings of national gratitude for deliv
erance float the dominion of a civil tyrant; whi!e
at the same time we meet clad in the armor of hos
tility to a moral tyrant, and rejoicing in the progress
of the contest waged against him. We are assem
bled in a Temple of worship, from which ascends
praise for the blessings that have been showered
upon our nation and ourselves, and petitions that
Our Father who is in Heaven" will preserve vir
tue in the son, to cherish the freedom which his
father won. You aro assembled to receive from the
band of woman, a bright testimonial of her joy at
the success of that mural warfare in which you are
engaged. Sho strewed flowers in the paths of him
who had bortio the bannerol his country in trithimli
over her foes, and von receive this gift from her ac
companied with feelings much akin to those, which
on that occasion, welled up from the deep, pure
fountain of her grateful heart.
Why comes this cheering gift to you from the
hands of woman ? 'Tis not that tho magic influ
ence of your noble brotherhood has snatched the
poisonous chalice from her lips, fot the wine cup
breathes a pollution too gross for woman in our
age to slisre. We need but a law like that of en
tient home, denouncing the penalty of death upon
the woman who drank wine except at n religious
ceremony ; for were a Virgil to sing in our time,
he could not with propriety represent his Lido us
touching it with her lips. •
Why then cetera this gift fruni the hands of
woman ? She has looked around at those stricken
sisters who have experienced all the ills that fellow
in the wake of intemperance, and that benevolence
which led her to be • first at the sepulchre and lest
at the cross" lies gushed forth frern her feeling
heart, arid dirployed itself in efforts to pluck out the
barbed arrow, and administer healing to the wound.
:dark the life of woman and ask yourselves, could
it bo otherwise? See those cempanions who be
come more than sister-like in their intimacy, and
almost blend their beings one with the other. To
gether they share the joys and bear the griefs oldie
present, and togeiher they g;lii the future with
blight visions of happiness.
The destiny of one of theta is linked wick
of a man who an yet has learned but to taste of the
pleasures of the wino cup. Elie noon learns that
she is doomed to that worst of sot rows, to lies in
unavailing grief him in whom her fondest hopes
are centered, around whom her warmest feelings
cling, step by step approach the goal of is sad and
disgraceful destiny. That • levely dark eye in
woman" which once sparkled with delight as she
viewed each feature of his face, now in sorrow
traces there the progress of that flame of winch wo
may say at first:
"Ms the fire fly's light at oven
'Tie dim us the wandering stars that burst
In the blue of the summer heaven,'
but of which wo shall cro long be compelled to
.."I'is the flame that curls 'round the martyr's head
Where tusk is to destroy ;
'Pis the Lump on the altars of the dead
Whose light but darkens joy."
Once commenced, the race to ruin is a rapid one,
and cre long, she is forced to keep painful vigils for
his return from scenes of dissipation and riot. As
she sits by the flickering lamp, memory broods in
sorrow over the happiness once enjoyed, now fled,
until her troubled brain conjures up the grim tra
ditionary shadows of the night, which dance round
her as if in crockery of the visions fancy once had
painted. All that was once bright is obscured by
• :En. Lib. 1. 737,
L - 1-3.1 - c.L7I,Zt
gloom thicker than tho o blackness df darknese,"
and her promised glittering joys have proved
Like to the ripples on the Dead Sea's chore,
AU ashes to the taiti,"
Can she, who was the partner of her Youthful
joys and woes, view this scene of sorrow and not
feel that strong affection of her youth prompting
the tear of sympathy, and en elfin' to restore the
peace that has fled if it be true that woman's
love "like the ivy round the oak, clings closer in
the storm," ear. she view as attempt made to re
store to her early friend the husband who has drag
ged her as far down in misery as himself in guilt,
arid not lend all the aid that woman can give in
such a cause—her prayers, and herappropriation ?
You are a band of brothers engaged in making
this noble effint, and to you collies her voice from
the bright fold of this beautious gift, speaking in
tones of gratitude for whit has been done, and say
lag "Cod speed" to your future efforts.
Had you no other evidence that the enterprise
ill which you are engaged is one which finds a re
sponse in the heart of every lover of moral beauty,
an offering of this character, corning from the source
whence it does, would Insufficient to assure you of
This is an earnest to you that as long as there is
sense of moral duty in society, tho temperance
reformation will have its friends and advocates. It
may like the tlde, have its ebbs and its flows, but
just as certainly as that the sive!l of the ocean
shall return again to lash tho shore from whence it
flees, will that tide of Moral feeling Which may ap
pear for a tithe to be sealed tip in the cold heat t of
a selfish world, again burst forth in its season, and
rise still higher than ever it went ',cram.
The disciples of that cold skepticism, which dis
trusts the success of all efforts of this character ;
those who uro unwilling to connect themselves with
any endeavour to make them successful, and some
of whom perhaps are not very anxious that they
should prove successful, may view with derision
such a display as you this day present. They may
look over this host of true and loyal "Sons," and
feel disposed to say as did Bauquo of the witches,
"The earth both bubbles, as tho water has,
And therm are of therri,"
but they will one day find that they have taken the
wrong position in an age whose watchword is
" Onward;" and that as the tide of moral sentiment
rolls on, they will be forced to retreat from its ad
vancing waves, or be swallowed up in its victories.
A retroap ect of the past must convince any obser
ver that such will he the result. A few years ago,
and tine wine cup graced, (we would now say die •
graced) the social circle and the festive meeting.—
It glittered upon every sideboard, and ho was a
churl who refused to partake. Even the models
of morality, decorum, .d religion weie not con
sidered as departing from the line of duty, if they
warmed their sodal feelings into boisterous glee by
the genial influence of the flowing bowl. I need
not depict the change that has been wrought; habits,
opinions, practice, all have changed, and were men
iti our day to adopt Master Slender's resolution,
"I'll no'er be drunk again unless in honest, civil,
godly company," your letiorri would he near their
close. But while I congratulate you upon your
success, I know that I Will Ito but speaking the sen
timents of those whom I represent, if I raise the
warning voice to all who rlespise the influence of
this generous fraternity, and yet ettnit their ruin
in the convivial glass or drunken revel. If there
be such present, to you I may say, look at the bit
ter hate ,ith which you will ere long vie., yoursel ,
and all who have been instrumental ire y 0.., rtiu ;
look at the foul pollution that entrails earl, step of
the drunkard—look at the broken vows and forfeited
honor, the fruits of intemperance, then turn and
view tore in hold opposition to that bitter hate, foul
pollution, and utter faithlessness, the bright motto
of "Lore, Purity, and Fidelity." Father, son,
husband, or brother, who would yet raise the spark
ling tempter to your lips, there comes to you from
the folds of this gorgeohs banner the voice of daugh
ter, mother, wife, Or sister, saying to you, as says I
Manfred to the peasant's proffered cup,
"Away ! away ! there's blood Upon the brim."
Could you brethren ha:o n. more inspiring incentive ,
to adieu than this? It; in days of yore, troubadours
contended with the sweet pen of poesy, and knights
with the bloody lance of chivalry, for the passing
smile of woman, certainly, the gift that you this
day receive, unsolicited, from her hands, should lead
even the sons of this unchivalrous age to break a
lance with an enemy that plucks beauty from hoe
broW, and supplants nor smile with the melancholy
hue of grief.
Without aspiring to that Quixotic devotion to
her cause which characterized the ages of errantry,
you have paid, and will continuo to pay her, a more
grateful homage than was ever paid by the verses
of the bards of Provence, and have rendered, and
will render her better service than was ever render
ed by the mailed heroes, who, fur her sake, entered
the lists of the tilt and the tournament.
Persevere in your comae. Despair not because
at times the strong ties of the order seem too weak
to cope with the strength of bunion passions.—
This organization, as well as all others earthly, must
leave its defects. It were nut human wore it other-
wise. Ono fallen brother,--ten fallen brethren
would not be any prod' that all would fall, neither
would their dereliction detract arty thing horn the
worth of the principles embodied m the order.
As you enter the pure precincts of your hall, you
see upon its stand the holy word of God. Do you
put less confidence in the teachings of the beloved
disciple," or of the Son of Clod himself, because a
Judas "stole the livery of the King of heaven to
nerve the devil in? Is heaven itself less pure be
cause a rebel spirit once marred cehstial harmony
And was expelled forever. No,
" Angels are bright 0111, though the brightest fell."
The flag of our country now waves in the sunny
Routh, over the proud sons of freedom who have
"sung the loud song, and dared the deed of war."
Side by side With its glorious stripes and stare,
glitters the gift of warden confided to the Warrior's
hand, when he left his home end sought the tented
field. He has pledged himself never to see it ills=
honored; and, if he amid C.lloll ' d roar and sabre's
stroke, raising his eyo to its bright folds, "catch
war and vengeance from the glance," will not you,
also, be stimulated to esertion, when hereafter you
look upon this splendid memorial which she gives
into your hands? Receive it brethren, preserve it
undishonored by any acts unworthy of the brother
hood to which you belong; preserve in all their
purity those principles and usages in approbation
of which it is presented.
As long as you do so, the smile of woman will
cheer you on your way ; the tunas of Heaven will
RECEPTION-BY I. A. HALL
I have the honor to accept, on behalf of rry
Brilthren of the Order of the Sons of Temper once—
th is, your beauteousgtft, the offering of benevolence,
pramted as an evidence of your confidence in our
principles and devctioti to .our cauce--.. , the cause
of all mankind."
Appearing, undcr circumstances
which, inm a ny
n.:.pects, are peculiarly unfavorable, I shall claim
the rustic's privilege of departing from the rules
us.!ally observed on complimentary occasions ; and
eym at the hazard of incurring learned criticism,
preface my credo remarks with some little explana
Being, as I am, entirely unlearned in the lan
stage of refined compli.nent ; having passed, too,
that paritid of life, when poetry and romance lend
the aid of their magic inspiration; and not having
yet attained those hoary honota which entitle man
to appear in public as woolen's cduitsellor. I feel,
painfully seit4ible, that I can not address you in terms
suited to your enlightened taste, or expressive Lt ray
own feelings, or those of the Division.
For myself, as I make nu pretentious to crud
and have no reputation its a pUblit.: speaker, I need,
of courre, offer no apology or excuse. But In jus
lice to those who have confided to see, a part of the
interesting and important duties of this day, I feel
bound to tell this audience, that the glowing inter
' est of the circumstances by which I urn surrounded,
is almost tire only preparation I have for the occa
stun; and that the only thoughts and feelings I will,
or can present for your consideration, aro those
which these cireumstances have inspired.
Happily, the scene before roe, is well calculated
to awaken thought, and arouse to some degree of
action, oven the most sluggish intellect. To a think
ing mind, the day, the occasion, and the place will
naturally suggest many solemn and interesting re
flections; which, by combining the future and
present with the past, Must swell each feeling heart
with tender sad joyous emotions.
The day! The lomat day of July What
American can hear it named without thinking el
glerlo;as distinction Whet patriot cnn breathe
the air of that liberty which was cradled in its light,
without emotions of virtuous pride, gratitude and

interests of the hornets race? Other days base
been distinguished by the birth of philanthropists,
or sages or heroes. This day stands without a rival
on the records of faine—the birthday of a mighty
?lotion—the jubilee of fi•e^dam—of mental and
moral emancipition, to a whole continent! The
events of this day occupy, a proud place on the
historic page; imperishable glory covers the au
thors of those events, and a benignant providence
ha's permitted us, their sons and daughters, to lion
tsr their memories, and enjoy this fruits of their
On this day,seienty, years ago, the Declaration
of American Independence—that Great Charter
of human liberty—was adopted ; and, with the
Bves, for Canes and sacred honor" of ifs anthers,
pledged in its defence, sent forth to revive in the
breasts of our oppressed ancestors, the embers of
expiring liberty. l`tobly was that pledge redeemed.
In the contest which followed—a contest not waged
for national plunder or renoWn, or the fanCied faMe
of some ambitious btit involving the
hopes and interests, the natural and inalienable
rights of man—in that contest, memorable for its
origin, its progress and results--victory perched
upon our standard—the power of our oppressors
was humbled; and the British Lion cowered be
neath the piercing glance of the American Eagle!
The fire of liberty now burnt bright upon our coun
try's altar; its pure light irradiated the Western
Hemisphere; its incense arose from every valley ;
and from the summit of every hilltop, was wafted,
by the winds of heaven, over the monarchies of
Europe, conveying hope to tho toiling end oppressed,
but striking tyrants and despots, with consterna
nation and dismay.
This was no vain contest. For the same At.
mighty Being who inspired our forefathers with the
' love of freedom and a wish fu independence: who
controlled the efforts of their arms and conducted
them to victory ; also presided at their councils of
peace, and prepared them to enjoy its ,
Ijnder the guidance of his kind providence, the j
broad foundations of our permanent Imllientlence
were securely laid, and tkr wfder portals of Ftee.l
dein thrown open to the oppressed of other nations.
Liberty invited emigration. Industry converted
the mighty forests into fruitThl field,. tinterprisy
built cities and eetahlistied commerce. Intelligence
endowed institutions of learning. Piety erected
temples of religion. And this vast Iced—a wilder
, nese, over Which, a gloom, like the pall of death,
' had bro Oded for centuries—veils, on a sudden, trans
formed into a giirden cf the Lord, with the fresh,'
tress of Eden covering the scene, and the 8111i10 of
approving heaven gilding the prospect: To Woman
the Guardian Angel that watches, with a spirit
aver wakeful and benignant, over the happiness of
mortels—are wo mainly indebted, under God, for
this mighty change—this amazing revolution!
From the lips of a pious and FAITHFUL Minium,
Washington, the Father of his Country, learned
those lessons of wisdom and virtue, of prudence,
perseverance arid fortitude; that patriotic love of
tountry and devotion to his country's cause;--in
short, all the public and private virtues, enthroned
in his heart, and exemplified hi his life; end which
so eminently qualified him to conduct, successfully,
tl:c great enterprise, which crowned, with unfailing
honor, hisorni Pero name, and secured for millions
I of his kind—/'re priceless boon of LIBERTY!
To some extent, the same interesting truth applies
to nearly all the pat, iota arid leaders cf the revolu
lion. In the qiiietudes of home, (ai n mother's knee,
listening to maternal teaching--they hid:Hied iltoe's
sentiments rind feelings, those views end principles,
so gloriously disphiyed, hi the achievenients of their
manhood. Thus is lung, no less than virtue and
morality, indebted to Ow:Jule:, all csu!r cl!in~ in
fluenee • • • . .
Indeed, es if to clone for being first in the , 4 trans
' grUssion"--n leader in man's rebellion and fall—she
has been in all ages pant, and must continuo to be, I
through all coming time, the chosen instrument of '•
his restoration. Hence every enterprise of bencv
olence, every scheme of moral renovation, originates
in woman's sympathies, is encouraged by woman's
eppoliation, advanced by her exertions, and hal.
lowed by her prayers.
In the temperance referniation, inure particularly,
interest tide aided inclinetlen, and urged her on to
action. In a private capacity, how often have her
patient sufferings subdued the fierce passions of the
fallen inebriate; taught him to overcome his burn
ing thirst for liquid poison; and led him back to
drink, once more, the pink beverage that pons from
heaven's gurgling fountains ! How often have her
bitter, but unr»unnured wrongs, has ne with heroic
fortitude and unshaken firmness—touched the al
-1 most lifeless pulse of rum-debased humanity,
aroused the better feelings of man's nature, and
made him strike for freedom, and cast of a brutal
bondage! Many a social circle, shrouded in gloom,
and buried in sorrow, by a husband's intemperance,
tins, through the resistless influence of a pious and
heroic wife, been brought from darkness into light;
front the shadows of death to the fount' of life;"
.d front the depths of misery to the heart-felt joys
of a !nippy home !
Man;• a way ward and ungrateful Son, hurtled,
by / iiiipiqous passion and the fiendish allurements
of the sellers and lovers of strong chink, on the
broad road to ruin—has been arrested in his mad
career Of by a sister's kindness or a mother's
. . .
N es, even he who wee so debased as to sunder
ry kindred tie, and loatho the kind endearments
cf ha t er; to resin the sweet blandishments of a
sisters's love; spurn a fathers count el and mock a
mother's tears: oven that sunken being, so lust to
honor, dead to the ties of nature, and almost fur
sateen of God—has been stretched front despair's
dark brink, restored to life, his friends, and " hope
renewed ;”—a monument of woman's self•sacrill
ring love, her saving power, and moral strength !
hie said flue much of woman's butvidual
efforts, in behalf of Temperance, because human
nature is so coned , uted as to require more stimulus_
to the discharge of retired than public duties. And
because, after all, it is at house, in the el:ire:eta of
sister, with and mother, and in her private inter-
course with society--that wenian'a most efficient
field of labor is found, and in her inappreciable
power and mighty influence, for good or evil, are
put forth. ror, rio associated moral effort
can prosper without her public aid and approbation,
still, it is from the little throne at the fireside, she
sways that Most relent 'sceptre which shapes the
moral .les•iny of man.
But her expulsive benevolence is not confined
to this limited sphere of action. Nor own happi
ness secured, but half satisfles rho generous fet lings
of her nature. No sooner has alto trimmed the
lamp of Temperance on her altar, than she instinct
ively yearns to see its pure light illuminate the
altar of her neighbors.
In obedience to this charitable impulse, she has
uniformly borne a conspicuous part in the various
temperance movements of the times. In every
phase of combined action on the subject, she has
been firm in her allegiance and faithful in the dis
charge of every duty. Under the old organization,
we find her fervent in zeal and indefatigable in ez
ertions ; attending the meetings and circulating the
pledge; encouraging the timid and restraining the
imprudent; instructing the young by her sweet
I counsel; alluring the foes of temperance oy her
kindness; and cheering on its friends by the light
cf her smile and the music of It* vetee.

the prohibition—we find her doing--as did the wu
men of the revolutiun—. good service without tha

clothed ninny Divisions in a Cal of Mails, the

prePered ours, at least, to fight girder a DANNEIL on
which the Emblems significant of the three great.
principles on which we rest—Loos, PCIILTT and
Finctrry—are tastefully inscribed, by woman's

What christia:: crtn condder this fact, contemplate

walls of his own sanctuary—and, cver after doubt

Brethern of the Order: In receiving from the

and respect, I indulge the pleasing hope, that the
pledge, now given in your name, to preserve its
purity, unsullied by the fall of a single member,

who shell hereafter be enrolled to fight, under its

the further hope, that while our hands aro strength

mark of woman's regard, adds one more to the
already multiplied and solemn ot•ligations, resting
on our Order; adds one more bright link to t h u
Golden Chain which unites our social Brotherhood.
A chain which no member of this Division may

donee, desecrating womart'a gift, and doing violence
to the gentle op:TA:lnes cf woman's heart.
Can any Brother so yip against his flister. and

into the service of the United States, one of Cap
tain Talker's company, from Evansville, lost
handkerchief. On setting down to me., he obser
ved it sticking out of the bosom of one of his com

that, being very poor, and wishing to go to her
Lathes, who resided in Texas, she resolved to join
one of the volunteer companies, She afterwards
went to Louisville, and her fellow soldiers raised
subscription to carry bet to her father.
