The field has been thorough- ly'explored by nien of ripened fnfoHjocV^—thosa \n^possessea the keenest perception Of righf Id Wrong, and tho power of deep and penetra- tingTcseareh.^ Every part' of the legalized sys- tem ha* bcen«xami.ncd with microscopic minute- ness, and *fio world lias been furnished with a panoramic view of its effects upon.tho civil, so- cial and' religious interests of mankind. The •wo pronounced against the man who \ pnttcih the bottle to,his neighbor's lips,''.as well as that Which must rest upon the finally incorrigible drunkard, has been proclaimed' in both liomi- 'wpTioreo. .Pop ua,,therefore, to nttonll>t lUiylldllg riew, would amount to' little, if anytliinff nioie than 4 repetition j>f what 1ms been saitl again and ngitin. For tliis reason it may be mostprofit- able fir us at this time to direct your^ attention to an cxaminatiou, of the dillercnt nieans that' have been, and still- are being employed for the suppression of intemperance, and the importance \of-united ,nlid Efficient action in that directiori which to us shall seem-best adapted for the ac- jomplishmcritof tlie^esircd:end. <* ^Whcn- the subject of Temperance began to be agitated, and men began fo fed! tlint somothing must be done to arrest the unrestrained current of dissipation that Was then •flooding 'the lnnd, the. first idea was\ to erect a standnrd by giving tone to publip opinion, that should say to the fie- tystjjsani, \Thus far shnlt thou conio, and no farUier, and hero shall thy proiid waves be staid.' ? This idea ine.t With approval by n por- tion of community, and wonld have worked, well provided all could have agreed at what precise •point on thifgmduatod scale of public opinion the aundurd ahcrutd be fixed. The community, theui as now, being agitated by conliicting inter- ests and opinions; tho public mind naturally flowed off through the dhfereiit channiAs openod %. ita rtceptiofl; Tlie Manufacturer, being guided byliis interfcht, desired to placb tho stand- ard within reach of all, He said to -all, Come, thy all you can, sell allyou can, give away nil yOu can, spill nil you can, niakei it your moat, dfiiik- aad lodging, The vender then-, as now, being governed By the same principle, could scarcely believe tho applicant at his bar liad enough until I113 money was gone, liia posses- sions wasted' and his family Tjcggnred. The tippler had enough w'heh ho was happy and riefij but as-tlie amount which riinde him ricls yeaterday will not quite do, it fo^day* the stand- ard must be raised a littler apdi so -onj until the :emperafcntip^r ' : -'••-•• uilder the ififlqoiiee of ideop rooted prcjiidieesi it i^ot strange that they should' look with sus, piicjon upon sftfrei societies, '.That ?th.Qoxder : is-mueh-wisdom qpposed by some of ^licrassea in society istrue, ; aiid it is equally true that it Iina njany warm sup-. porters among tfusgoqji, both in and out .of the chirch.

Bachsocicty : tniit has preceded tho Sons, has njfet witlf appEOKaLojid disapproval,, butnoitlier the.OPAftor.tho,.other was an'argiiineni for or agafiist. it. At.tlio time the first society was formed, the cry went *lik\e tho voice of many waters,\ botli ip aud. out of the church, say- ing; Church djid Statt! politics, oppression, car- nage* &C4; At tliefimetne Wnshingtomans took the field, greater fears prevailed. Many good men saw*,with prophetic eyes; clouds ot dense darkness shadowing the- distant^futurcl Their sympathies for mankind^wero greatly excited, anil their very hearts were made to \ shake with the swelling thereof.\ On the *ther.hnnd, ma- kers, venders* drinkors, sots, and all who sympa- thized-avith them, whoso Vciry blood chilicdat the \flionght of a ; cold wjijer beverages, dreamed of leaping ragged thunder, replying to Umhouw crash of locking carthquikes. It is well for the world thatnouo of tlxsethfngs linvo pome to pass. • \1 . \ • When the Order of Sons made \'its appear- ance, reflecting its pure light, many goorf men began to feel ularincd t They, really supposed tli-jt ucmo-iiondislt power bad granted to mason- ry a resurrection, which, by the way,.has never given up the ghost. It was supposed, that that; wicked system, so objectionable in the minds of many, had made iti second advent into the world, and the church would soon be obligedto issue a second edition jO£ suffering. But as tho predictions touching former organizations have never come to pass, wo may reasonably expect their fears of the Order will\ vanish in open air. ' From these remarks it is easy to sec that op- position froni Ijood and bad ineii , 'is riot proof positive that the Order is bad, nor their approval proof positive that it is good. There are but two ways that we can eorrectlyjndge with re- spect to the merit or demerit of an. institution, 1. c-i theprincyi/esihterwovonin the not-work of its constitution, aiid its.jtractkal utility.

It left to nil tho free and unrestrained uso Of ?*tne„ Jeer and cider.— The object of this society was to prevent from becoming intemperate; At that' time it was fashionable to drink\ and the young wore-ex- posed to great temptations, and were almost sure, after a little, to drink to excess, To pre-, vent such from becoming drunkards, tho so- ciety fras formed, \ - The third idea was tho formation of a society under n teetotal pledge, accompanied with the law of'kindness for the reformation of the ine- briate. ThiB society met with general approval j and in its practical workings, produced most hap- py 4nd felicitous results. Likq tho siidden ap- pearance of a meteor, it attracted, general litteri? tion,so thatin a littlo time sooietits were formed hi every village and town throughout tho land. Its saving inf3[\ionco has been felt in both hcmU fphdrcs, and tliousands have boon redeemed both in the nqvyarid the old world..

For the Want of these it lias failed iH many instances of vOachiftg the inebriat4,J»ndof carrying him through his diftieuit work of reform. To re- njove thoao defects, which have been everywhere ftlt, another society has been formed, called the Thfs society, as far as it has been, ablo to sec, has taken care, in its organization, to glean from former societies all that was expedient and Of good report* aijdtosuppjy the defects whistl UaVe\ been so- visible in their practical workings;— Wento it.appears -before the world, baled oh the thei.. ncter'iit tho ono giveis character to the Other.—decido That is to say, if the good persoveringly oppose, tho opposed will always bo found to ha bad', but if the wMeked pe'rsovef'mgly opposp, the opposed will- Always be found to be good. When the purosystc'm Of Christianity made its appearance, tho wliolo vyorld stood opposed. Chuhsh and State; - Jews and Romans, good and bad, high and low; were nrfayod against it.

As Christians, wo are left to upoij tho best means to be employed to carry forward the kingdom of Christ''in tho. world. Individually Or collectively we are re, quired to aid in every boiiovoloftt operation, qf the day,,and \vo claim tho' privilege to choose tho -mjnncr, tinto, and plapo of performing «ur duty tp God arid the world.

The great ob- ject is to do what we cari, and wo all claim tho privilege, granted to ua by our adorable Redeem. er to select our own way 'of-affecting'-tfio ob. ject. The same is true of the Sons. In cpin. mpn. witlr mankind,, they are bound to sayeas drunkards from ruin as they can, and .scat-- ter iidclight in their domestic* circles.

'We answer that' it Was clearly of that kind that has furnished the worfd'with, posi- tive evidence of its truthfulriess. Tho opposi- tion of good men ceased just in propprtion as they became acqmunted with the true interpre- tation of the prophecies,; but that of the wick- ed hits continued to tho present. JJow let ua apply this to the easo in hand.— Good men oppose the Order tlifoiigh conscien- tious scruples, which is tho result of a Miscon- ceived opinion of the onler-T-a misapprehension of the spirit of Ha constitution and its design. Just in proportion as tlicy obtain correct yio\vs of the character of the Older, their opposition ceiiSes. Hundreds of this class who were op- posed six months ago, are now vyith the Sons,, andhundreds whpnpw oppose wiHlbewith thom in six months to corn*. Thosp who Op'fSose through bigotry .are generally of the \straitost 8eet,\hnd havo transferred their conscience to the Church, and have ccijsedto think for them. selves.
