This is according to the express language of Argus himself in reference to Odd Fellowship in his sec­ ond number. “ The widow of a worthy brother,\ says he, “is reported to the lodge to receive what is her just due in the right of her deceased husband.\— Again, speaking of an afflicted member, he says, “This afflicted but worthy bro­ ther, receives as a matter of right of charity, his weekly benefits.” Now, if neither the Worthy brother nor his widow receive benefits as a matter of icharity but as a matter of right, and what is their “just due,” I should like to know who does receive of charity, or on whom is charity bestowed? Where are its objects 1 It must be rather a .itrange charitable institution which dispenses its favors only on those persons who have claims on it on the principles of justice, and from which none receive any thing only what is their “just due.\ This must be strange charity, and the must indeed be “ odd” from other peopi who call it charily. Perhaps the fabu­ lous being of antiquity with his hundred eyes can see charity here, but the “ Old Watchman” must confess that his sight is so dim he cannot see any thing like charity here. •Does a Fire insurance company le- , DON’T FRET. Of all disagreeable persons, Habi­ tual F retters are the most so. You never can do anything that will please them. If they should ever be found to laugh over a good joke, o r a thrill at the recital of some noble deed, should for a wonder, run through their frame they will not commend the no­ ble soul that did the act. But let the same person camvnit a triyial er- ror, and they will hear from the fret- /There Jane, 1 told you would spill the water 1 W h at did you get the jpail so full far ?” And the next time if Jane should fetch the pail half full, it will be,—“There Jane, you havn’l got half enough .gll the tea-kittle i You never do anything right.

She scarcely draws a pleasent breath from morning till night; and even in her sleep, a fretful word will come out accasionally. She never can keep any “help.” But what is worse than all, her children, under the influnce ofher example, are apt to grow up selfish and bad tem­ pered. “Tom,” says the man, “Why didn’t you shut the gate when you go through it, You always leave the bars down or the door or gate open ! But Tom, on the whole, was a preetty careful boy, yet one day seeing farmer Fret­ ful coming towards him, he resolved that he would do right that time, so he shut the gate tight. But it happen­ ed that the farnaer \ wanted to go through it. Therefore he cries out, “Tom your’e always shutting the gate when a person wants to use i t ! You ’ ’ ’ rofil!

Now why this everlasting pleach, w charity in reference to Odd Fellowship, ^ when its own advocates declare that it bestows no charity, neither on its mem­ bers nor on their widows, but only pays what is their just dues ? I really hope lar as \ juu x * . appear a benevolent institution so far it must commend itself to the favorabfe notice of Christians, and so far it should be regarded as an auxiliary and hand­ maid to religion. It is doubtless m view of its being a charitable institution that lined that the pious Christian will not suffer himself to be decoyed into a union with Odd Fellowship under the idea of its being a charitable institution.
