Improved Order of F. of I.

Bnai Bcholam Lodge, No, 37, under the jurisdiction of the above-named Order, was instituted bare in Brooklyn on the 3uth ult, at Halmy Building, fur which purpoaa the Grand Master, Mr. H. F. Back man, Grand Secretary, Mr. a W.

Goodman, Grand Treasurer, Mr. M. K. Cohen, President Court of A Jipoalt, Mr. Joseph Coons, as Acting Deputy, were present and inaugurated said Lodge.

i This being the first Lodge of this Order instituted here, or in this State, it became necessary to organize from raw material tha aixty applicants as charter members, from whom must emanate the future of this Onlor in. this State. Bnai Scholom Ledge is, to all intents and purposes, the pioneer Lodge the Empire Btate, and much is expected, we trust, not in vain, from, the Lodge, for It has laid the foundation under favorable auspices. 1 The composition of its members and the number of which it is composed bespeak volumes in favor of a grand and glorious future. i The essential merit of the improvement referred to in connection with this Order, is baled unqualifiedly upon the simplicity with which its candidates are initiated and the cogent logic its lectures import.

These characteristic features simplicity and cogency predominating throughout its entire proceedings must recommend it to the favorable notice of every intelligent man, and it is hoped will bid fair to spread a wholesome example and revolutionize the entire system of secret organization. Degrees there are none, excepting the one connected with the initiation. Implements are abolished and oaths are discarded as relics of the past and as belonging to an effete and obsolete period. It is claimed by the adherents of this Order that it has been obviously demonstated, on more occasions than one, that some Orders are responsible for the creation of embryo perjurers through the custom of administering oaths that are violated, with rare exception, almost upon its inception, The adherents of the improved Order also claim that, living as we do in this advanced age and enlightened country, the intelligent mind is vigorous enough to comprehend or receive impressions without the aid of ceremonies that long before this have lost their efficacy and have universally been pronounced as superfluous, brevity and simplicity will eventually be substituted in their stead. The brief and simple manner made use of in initiating a member in this Order, devoid of all ceremonies, leaves a good impression, and enables him to recollect its simple teachings and admonitions.

The hope baa been expressed that Bnai Scholom Lodge, With its bright prospects, may be the means of the laying of the corner-stone of the Second District. It must be remembered that the Order inculcates as one of Us tenets the diffusion of knowledge among its adherents in connection with the practice of those cardinal virtues, Charity and Benevolence. eettme, 1ft vl awe to eof n. uli.

Before tlie contbct had ended, she returned to her literary labors, and completed urarift believing It would help the side ahe had so vigorously espoused.

A professional humorist in New York printed an el a I ki rate burlesque of it, and was much annoyed to see that the parts he had taken literally from the book were considered the cleverest satire.

Ah' Evans is wedded to a very estimable gentleman, it is said, and it is sad to think that she has spent the first months of her matrimonial bliss in writing what no one outside of a lunatic asylum would pretend to understand, ARTS PKRFICnON. In one of her superhuman romances she describee her heroine aa attending the dying bed of a man who had long adored her. Just before he breathed his last, the following conversation (I quote from memory, but do not intend to exaggerate) ensues between the wonderful pair: Can I do anything for you, my beloved, this agonizing hourl Yes, my angel.

Melinda Smith state I was in a neighbor's boo oa Locust street, between First and Hecond. The chanty wngon No. 1 stopped, anil I thought it had broken down. A mend called me out into the street to eee.

I went do up to th wagon, and there 1 aaw two oullina one (or a baby, th other tor a grown pen a. The coffin for the grown person was open, the lid being pertly off. I saw distinctly the man on the inside of tlie coffin moving hia hand, trying to push off the lid. The driver took the cushion off his seat and put it on the man's face and on hia head. In this position be still ou him while he going a ajuare, and between Second and Third streoto lie stopped again, and took a hammer and tried to nail doom tlie lid.

Here the driver took the babys coffin, and put it no top of the. man' feet, and then sat on him again. The driver, wbeu I first went up to the wagon, hi an angry tone, aud: What do you want? and I said, I want to sea He answered, II Urt away from here, before I ftliip yt)U in the mouth. I said, You ore carrying a live man to the graveyard. He then arove on.

I followed the wagon to the graveyard, but we were not allowed to go in. The driver is a tall white man, and wore a white hot; hod a red face, and I have seen him often passing the door; I would know him if I saw him. Mary Thompson, living on Locust street, next door to the atove, states: I was putting my wash clothes on the line, on Wedneeilay, about A 30 P. and I noticed the charity wagon No. 1 standing in the street in front of my house.

1 went out to see tlie cause, and when I got up to the cart I saw a man in the coffin, with his teet up trying to get up. The man then raised his arms, put out nis hands, and tried to get up out of the coffin, but the driver pushed nun down back into the ootfin with great force, and put the babys ooffln, which was in the cart, too, on top of him, and sat on his head. I followed the wagon, telling him I wanted to see what he (the driver) was going to do with the man in tfie coiliin. I told the driver TH MAN WAS ALIVE, truly alive; but he would not say anything to me, but drove on fast. I am positive that the man put np his hands and feet, but he was too weak to sit up straight.

I am certain of this, for I saw it plainly. The man had broken the lid open, so it looked. The driver 1 saw put his pillow or cushion on the man, and then sit down just where his head was. Rose Johnson, residing on Locust street, between Second and Third streets, makes the following statement: I saw the charity wagon stop just in front of eur gate. I saw two coffins in the wagon; one was that of a child and the other that of a man; the lid of the large coffin was off; the driver of the wagon got back and put it on again; it slid off again, rose up, and I the arms of the man the coffin raised the driver took the pillow on which he sits and placed it in the coffin and sat on it Ellen Burns, residing at the same place, stated: The man was not dead, he raised his arms, and the driver put a pillow on him aud tried to smother him.

Henderson Burch, same residence: I know what they tell you to be true; I saw it. There was a small coffin and a large coffin in the wagon. I went to the wagon and the driver ordered me away. I followed it to the graveyard, but did not stop to see the body buried. There were a great many people around there, white and black.

Andrew Jackson, who came in just after Burch bad given his statement, on being questioned, said: I live between First and Second streets. The charity wagon stopped in front of my house. I heard a noise in the wagon. Panda Smith ran out I heard the driver say to her, Do you want to catch the small-pox? What do you want? She said, I am not afraid of the small-pox. The driver then threatened her; I did not hear what he said, but I knew, from his tone, he threatened her.

I do not know the number of the wagon, but it was drawn by a gray mSb Louisa Weber, reeiiyng at the comer of Locust and Third streets, stated: I heard that a man was Being buried alive, and I went to the cemetery and Bpoke in German to the gravedigger. I do not know his name; he was a mall man. I asked him about the man being buried alive. He said the driver was a kind of funny man, and no doubt did it all as a joke; that the man was dead enough to be buried, and that he had a doctors certificate that he was dead. William Harrison states: I first saw the cart at the graveyard called Locust Grove.

The wagon drove into the yard, and as I heard they were burying a live man, I went ifL notwithstanding they tried to put me out. I went up close to the coflln in the graveyard. A young man there asked me to look in the coffin, and 1 moved the lid and looked at him. The coffin was on a stretcher. The man was still breathing, and there was a cobble-stone on his stomach.

His toes were twitching, and his breast moving. The man was naked. I saw all this plainly, just as I see that tree now. There was a big crowd running after the wagon women and boys living round there. Jackson, aged fourteen, says: I first saw the wagon in frout of my house, on Locust, near Kiret street I saw the man in the coffin raise tba lid of the coffin he was in and put both hands outside the coffin and try to lip.

I was close to him not five feet off, and I saw tlie mans face. It was thin, and his fingers Were thin, too. The driver put the lid down again quickly, and pushed the man back into the coffin, arid then put a baby's coffin, which wss in tha wagon, on top of the man, and then sat down on him. The man then groaned in the coffin. I followed the cart to the graveyard, hut they would not let me in.

The crowd following the agon was mostly women and boys, about three hundred in alL at locust drove cemetery. Repairing to the Lodust Grove Cemetery on Sixth street, between Freret and Locust, the reporters were hardly prepared for the sight which met their gaze.

The not fluttered down upon the table, while, Danthrop, man like, was well pleased at the flattering allusion to hlinaulf, looked smilingly up. i Coming to Darlington I that will ha a treat! Her sprightiinem and merry wit will ba justly appreciated in our quiet little nest here.

If her voice trembled as she replied, her hind Kind in his excitement failed to notice it. There will be no trouble about the accommodations, but she paused with an involuntary sigh. I but what, Vesta? Danthrop asked in evident surprise. had hoped to paa the summer in quiet among ourselves, wdtfiout the intrusion of any visitors. Bhe laid a slight emphasis on the lart words, we have had much company lately.

I know youre the queen of hospitality, of love I Viliaira answered, his eye kindling ith fond affection, but Maud would be almost like one of tlie family: It wifi be her first visit, too, although she has been such an old and Ultimate friend. Indeed, Ive no doubt that if you should want to rest for a day or so, she would even take your place in the family affairs. A most singular expression crossed the wifes face at her husband's last words. Very probably, she added quietly. I would uke to know the probable extent of ber visit.

As lone as she thinks shes welcome, I sup-cnee, said Danthrop, raising, and coming to ins wifes chair. As youll write one of those nice Utile notes such as I used to get when we were courting, Vesta to tell her shes welcome to come as soon and stay as long aa she can? Vesta lifted her eyes to ber husbands face with a moments wistful scrutiny, then taking his hand in hers, she answered slowly. If you wish it, Danthrop. Thats a darling! he bent and kissed her. Ive no doubt that shell prove so agreeable that well want to keep ber as long as possible.

Shall yon require any extra help? Oh, do, there is not much to be done. Very w.ll, good-bye love, good-bye, Queen Mah. He lifted the childs rosy face to his, and with; a buoyant step left the house, humming almost unconsciously the words of a song Maud had sung for him years before, Ever of thee Im fondly dreaming. Slipping from her chair the Utile girl nestled to her mothers side, and gazed earnestly into her pensive face and tear-dimmed eyes. Mamma, you dont want that Maud Percy to come here, do you? she said at last.

Mrs. Vifiairs stirred in momentary surprise. Bhe bad forgotten that she was not alone. What makes you think so, Vesta? I Because you look so sad, the child answered, regarding her mother keenly: and I dont believe shes your old school-mate and dearest friend, even if she does say so; is she? Bhe was a school-mate, certainly, Veeta, several years we occupied the same room at school, and were in the same class. I used to think quite a good deal of her in those days.

And why dont you now, mamma? Mrs. Vifiairs smiled and lifted her little girl to her lap. What a sharp little thing you are, Vesta. I dont dishke her, exactly; only it interferes with some plans I had for this summer. Bhe was trying to speak composedly, for she could not breathe into the childs pure mind the weightier reasons for her uneasiness, But as papa wishes her to come, we must try to make it as pleasant for her as possible.

But the explanation failed to satisfy the child; and as her mother paused she shook ber curls decidedly. No, mamma; I know what to do. Well all keep away from her, and then perhaps shell get tired and go home. That would be a very inhospitable way to treat a guest, my dear. As a visitor she is entitled to our best attention- besides, she may not stay at any rate, and a wish that was almost a prayer rose from her heart that it might be so.

And now ring for Martha to come in, while I write a note to Miss Percy, and then you may help me arrange the rooms which she wifi use. Vesta kissed and embraced her mother fondly and then skipping from her lap, summoned the maid, while Mrs. Vifiairs seated herself before a writing desk that stood near the window, and penned a few courteous lines, extending the hospitality of her house to her prospective guest, and namiug an early day upon which to Tract hfiir Accompanied by her llttlo girl she next proceeded to add a few refreshing touche to the gueHt-chamber, and anxious to eradicate any unfavorable impressions tlie child might have received.

The third utinnui pic-uic of th Carroll Park Methodist Sabbath-school wss held on Wednesday last, June 9th, at Oriental Grove, on tho Sound. Notwithstanding the disadvantages of a stormy day, there was larg attendance of scholars, parents and friends.

The sail up the river, through th, Gate and on the Soimd wss delightful, but upon reaching the grove rain commenced falling, and thus many of the ex enrsionists were debarred of tho pleasure of visiting the grove. However, there were those who, despite all drawbacks, were determined to enjoy themselves, and who, taking their boskets left the boat and proceeded to the grove, spread tables, and enjoyed a hearty repast. After par. teklng to their hearts content, games were in order, and although a drizzling rain was falling, -base-ball, croquet, pitching quoits, were Indulged in. The game of base-ball, which was to have taken place between'George Allens nine anc the heavy weights under the direction of Alderman Trowbridge, waa dispensed with on account of the condition of the ground.

This interesting match will doubtless be decided upon some future occasion. 1 One of the most thrilling spectacles witnessed at the grove was the ponderous form of the genial superintendent, who, with face wreathed. smiles, amused a large party of boys by batting the base ball to them. The instrumental music was conducted by Messrs. Wylie and Welder, and was excellent.

The singing was under the direction of Prof. William Russell, and as Is usual, where he is leader, was of the best. Too much credit cannot he awarded to the committee, consisting of Chester Bedell, Charles T. Harry Du Bois, William H. Eiley and Mia M.

J. Kerr, for lie satisfactory manner in which they discharged their various duties and their untiring efforts to please all who were present. Among the gay throng of pleas- ure -seekers we noticed E. P. Alword and C.

Uobilh, June. All young nation and young Statea are natu-pally aeolous of their claim to culture and taste, and especially of their reputation lot literary ability. Our own country for many years re-genbod the statement that she had no literature, wliich was true enough half a century ago; and before, and since the war, the South has felt very uncomfortable, because its author! have been lees numerous and generally inferior to those of the north. 1 THK BXSSmVK BOOTH. The South is rarely logical.

If it were, it would see that a people mainly agricultural, in 1 a thinly-settled country, with few large cities or libraries, would not be likely to create or support authorship to any extent, and that clover books would appear only sporadically. But not being logical, aa I have said, it is perpetually indignant at the opinion that tha most of the eminent writers and scholars of the re-' public are from what were formerly known as the free States, Its journals and periodicals delight in defending the South from the acousation of literary poverty, end in making comparisons between the two sections. If the North has Longfellow and Bryant, they say, we have Wiggins and Bogstock (or persons equally unknown to fame). If it claims Hawthorne and Holmes, we can point with pride to Toodles and Huggins, or other gifted persons that few people out of their own county have had the good fortune to hear of. If it boasts of Prescott or Bancroft, we may sing the praises of Pilkins and Plp-1 kins.

The Southerners were made quite different from us by the existence of slavery; bat independent of that they are intenser and more ex-' citable, less reflective and less critical. What 1 1 they like at all they laud to the stars, and they are predisposed to admire whatever has a Southern origin or Southern sympathies. When-' ever an author appears among them, they almost smother him with laurels, and blow praises in his ears until he is unable to bear the 1 voice of discrimination, When the author is feminine their professed gallantry, blinds them completely, and they welcome in their sophmorical rhetoric as a combination of As-paftia, Sappho, and Hypati, with rhapsodical allusion to Browning, Bronte, and De StaeL HXBVEL OF MIND. One of the marvels of mind that has dazed the Southern public is Augusta J. Evans Jirs.

Wilson now who introduced herself to America, some twenty years ago, by a novel called fl Beulah. It attracted much attention and gave evidence of considerable power. Though crude, it promised far better things. The novel was published anonymously, and the fact added to its reputation by furnishing opportunity to attribute it to every clever writer in the country. It went through numerous editions, and its succera prompted the author to avow herself.

From that day here tiecame a name to conjure with in the South, and even the ears of Northern publishers were opened to what might be her future cnes for prmters ink and press-work. I BXUXftH.

A very enjoyable reception took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Marsh, No. 11 Jefferson street, near Broadway, on" (Saturday afternoon and evening, on the occasion of the ninth anniversary of the birthday of masters Charlie and Freddie Marsh, twin sons of our host and Charlie and Freddie are bright boys, and if they grow in goodness as they have begun, society has the promise of men. They have many friends indeed, multitudes of them, who gathered in upon them on the occasion in question, until the parlor presented a scene of Juvenile brilliancy.

Charlie and Freddie were as jovial as could be, and, aided by their elder sister Mary, left nothing undone for the pleasure of their guests. At six oclock an elegant supper was partaken of and thoroughly enjoyed. Later in the evening, when it came time for the little ones to return home, the jollification assumed a more staid and sober-sided aspect, bqt all finished up in an eminently satisfactory manner, and certainly creditable to those in whose honor the affair was given. Among the guests, present were: May McCnun, Annie Monk, Lucy Dawson, Alice Barringer, Louise 8cott, Willie Powell, Harry Dawson, Angie Bunce, Susie Barringer, Ettie Powell, Marty Porter Scott, John James McCrura, and Freddie Dawson.
