(tr"Orrl and fte^( l jg o. ODD FELLOWSHIP.-Much has been said and written upon the subject of Benefit Societies, but no argument has been able to upset the fact of their utility; they are ,o doubt the result of a wish to provide against the unforseed contingencies of life that may at any time plunge an operative and his family into all the horrors of extreme poverty, and we are much mistaken if the moral restraint, imposed by rule and ex ample, and strengthened by admonitions, does not tend to elevate the mind, and better the position of those who band them selves together as brothers, for a purpose not the less charitable because it is mutual. We are glad to hear that an attempt is being made to establish an Odd Fellows Lodge here, and we hope it may be suc cessful. Mr. Thomas Semmens, of Cale donian Gully, has received the necessary information to enable himself and friends to take the proper steps for obtaining the necessary dispensation for establishing a lodge.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 14 August 1863
As with individuals so with nations, the man who after battling with the ocean surf in escaping from a vreck, is greatly relieved by reaching some rock away from the breakers, and for a time he disregards cold and hunger in the happiness caused by his escape. And nations that have suffered by violent revolutions and counter revolu tions-whole races of the human family who have seen their country become the victim of anarchy, rapine, bloodshed, and misery, have been known to welcome a despotic and tyranical ruler-in such cases anything in the form of government is calamities produce a proportionate leffect; the avowed Walpolean theory of corruption --that " every man has his price," and the open practice of it in the British Parliament, produced a feeling of disgust that evinced itself in every possible manner. The splen did talents of Pitt, his sagacity in making common cause with the great middle classes of England, and his wonderful oratorical powers would not have been sufficient...
(To the Editor of the McIvor Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 14 August 1863
(To the Editor of the Acvlvor Times.) SiR,--This " weeny" township of yours seems to be exceedingly prolific of fop pery; if a strange lady present herself in your Street, she is stared out of counte nance as she passes along by certain would-be gentlemen, whose chief employ ment appears to be nobbler drinking, cigar smoking, and the cultivation of enoimous appendages to the chin, giving them.a striking resemblance to the horned quadrupeds, which are similarly endowed by dame Nature. In the meantime, I commend to their notice a little salutary and honorable labour, which might improve their physical, mental, and above all, their moral development. I ask, Sir, the protection of your pen for-mysex-irom this nuisance, and shall take the liberty of claiming hereafter, a place in your columns for the publication of the names of those who may persevere in their ungentlemanly conduct. Yours, obliged, ISABEL. Heatheote, 4th August, 1863.

(To the Editor of the McIvor Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 14 August 1863
(To the Editor of the Mclvor Tin-es.) SSR,-Far be it from me to write in any unnecessarily disparaging tone of the conduct of dur own citizens, but when Heathcote presents such a sad contrast, in many respects to other towns of minor importance, I will surely be pardoned for attempting. to arouse our leading men from the deep;trance into which it would appear they have fallen. Do we indeed live in the nineteenth century ?-I must be dreaming; for we have no town clock, no public founts, no fire-engines, nothing worthy of note, except thistles, and where they abound Life's path is only rendered more thorny still. Are we ever gratified, now and then, with the sight of.a plough ing match ? Do we ever enter into honor able rivalry with each other in exhibiting either agricultural or horticuliural pro duce ? No, nobody can be found to at tempt by such excellent means to excite within us a laudable desire to fairly test the capabilities of the soil. Mr. Donald Mathieson-whom, I am sorry to...

To the Editor of the Mclvor Times. Sm,--Whilst our Municipal Council, as custodian of Public money, is under obliga tion to see that the Works in connexion with the erection of the Town Hall are faithfully carried out, and whilst under ordinary circumstances, it would be con formable with established custom to receive the ipse dixit of the Architect for their guidance, they are not the less under obli gation to guard against being made the unconscious mediums for gratifying the spleen of an offended Architect in an at tempt to ruin an offending Contractor. A querulous Architect has the power within his grasp, to subject a Contractor to serious inconvenience, delay, and pecuniary loss, and under a mutual consciousness of the existence of such power, the one exacts, and the other concedes, in many instances, a truckling subservience, amounting al most to servility.. The Contractor in this case seems short of that amount of pliancy so requisite for his position, and in an' un guarded m...

Our Column. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 14 August 1863
For those who have had a bad crushing, those who cannot get a crushing, those who have been puddling unpayable stuff, those who have been sinking shicers, and those whose business will not permit them to laugh without a cause:— &nbsp; ------o------- What is that which belongs to yourself, yet is used by everybody ? — Your name. There is a phrenologist up town who can tell the contents of a barrel by examining is head. The English soldiers in the Crimea in- variably called the general on the Danube, Got-such- a- cough (Gortschakoff. . A country newspaper says: " On Wed- nesday we shall issue a second edition, but no first edition."
