Whilst in conversation witfi a gentle man a few days since, he remarked to us that, "the great forte of Charley Murray, as an Editor, consists in this, whenever facts fail him, or do not exactly answer his purpose, he is ever ready to supply their places with the creatures of his own imagination, and so happy is his faculty of substituting the false for the true, and of weaving the two together, when neces sary to his ends, that he is often very apt to deceive those who do not go to the trouble of making further inquiries." We submit this definition as meeting the case of our neighbor with i precision that borders on to ninety. But candor com pels us to say, that the forte is not credit able to any one it is ceitainly not to an editor whose writings are scattered broad cast amongst the rising generation, and whose profession above all o...

JELgTojxxx Topic, Sons of Temperance. Tbe 29th day ot September last was the nineteenth anniversary of the birth of this flourishing Order. No other organi zation iu this country has ever equalled it in magnitude, in the extent of Its juris diction, in the number of its members, or the large amount of funds disbursed for the accomplishment of its objects. No other organization has ever existed which has produced so much real good to com munity, which has earned more joy and comfort to distressed aud heart-broken wives and worse than orphan children, which has built up so many happy homes, and has restored to society so many of. God's fallen creatures, as the Order ot Sons of Temperance. Many thousands of drunkards, who were once wallowing in the filth of intemperance, degrading them selves and beggaring their families, have been reclaimed through its instrumen tality. The Order of the Sons of Temperance is purely American in its origin. In the latter part of September, 1842, John W....
