On D FE1.low's Fu NERAL.-On Sunday morning last th officers and brothers of the Loyal Victoria Park Lodge, Marl borough Tavern, together with o: officers and brothers of the vari ous lodges in the Bath District, assembled, to the number of 140 at the Lodge-room, and formed themselves into a procession to pay the tribute of respect to their late respected brother, Thoma Ostler Page, of No. 4, Gloucester-place, Burlington-street, by accompanying his remains to their final resting place in th: burial-ground of Walcot Church. The brethren wore their funeral regalia, and the proceedings assembled a large number of specta. tors and private friends of the deceased. The highly respectable appearance of the fraternity, and the esteem evinced by them towards their deceased brother, made a most favourable impression respecting the Order, whose benevolence and philanthropy are always extended in support of its members in sickness, when in distress or old age, and in the maintenance of their widows and orphans.
