BY SURGEON-MAJOR JOHN K, PDttDON, M. B. The high and representatlve position occupimi by the UKi.iitio-PiiiLosoriiirAi, Journal must compel It in justice, alike to the sup' porters anil opponents of the great body ol fact mid theory, for which It «lands sponsor, to disease the phenomena of modern Spirit- tutllseu from all possible -point«of view. Assuming, then, as a matter of course, that the account of the glance, written by Or. Charles Holland and published In the J o u r n a l of May 3d, la substantially correct and physically trne so far as regards objective details of the appearance of visible and tangible figures not produced by any of thetiu- merouh methods at the command of the conscious or unconscious deceiver assuming, In fact, that those honost. truth-seeking Spirit uallsto were engaged lu an experiment, and no more, the present writer asks for permission to lay before the scientifically educated Spiritualists, some thoughts to which he has been obliged to turn, aaailordlag acer tain amountof eat Infection in peculiar cases. The editorial comment upon the manifestations question, is guarded, and concludes with the following sentence: We wilhsay, however, that tbe experiment as written out, was not free from defects, and that tbe record has no particular value from a scientific stand point, as data In tbe study of spirit phenomena." The present writer begs respectfully to differ from the editor-in-chlcf. nod to point out that Dr. Holland has, in his account, perhaps unwittingly, afforded internal evidence of great moment to the physiological psychologist, and that bis written statement possesses a very particular value from a scientific stand point, as data in the study of eplrlt- pheuomena. Dr. Holland says: It may not be improper to state here that the night previous (to the day on which tbe adanee was held) 1 was suddenly taken with an extreme,hemorrhage of the bowels; it was exceedingly profuse and weakened me greatly, so much so that I was somewhat alarmed. 1 involuntarily, as It were, called upon my spirit friends, to stop tbs flow of blood, and It ceased as suddenly as It came I woe alone in my room at my hotel, and did not take any medical remedies, but obtained very tittle rest during jhe night. The following morning, the morning of the day of o f f seance, I consulted iby spirit friends upon tbs propriety of attending the stance in my present condition. They directed me to dd so, and my unde said he would materialize himself and care me." The account goes on to yav that among the numerous materialized figures at tb* stance. Dr. Holland's uncle appeared and manipulated him,saying: Charles, this l# worth a hondred magnetic treatments by a mortal. I have great power in this direction; besides there are several spirits in the cjrtil urt-who are assisting me. You have too/jbttfn blood you have been making bloodtoo fast recently; change your diet for a while to cereals; but 1 will care yon." Dr. Holland here makes tbe remark;. His hands produced a burning sensatlon> which seemed to penetrate clear through my body. ~ Dr. Holland, from bis public description of those minute and private details, invitee discussion, and, therefore, regarding all be nyx in bis printed account as so much evidence in support of hie thesis, that open communion *w!lh the departed Isa physical possibility (a metaphysical or ultra physical possibility is to US, while still necessitated to realize through the agency of a physical brain, n mere abstraction, whatever il may imply to those occupying a It-ss restricted sphere of existence), the present writer will venture to conuect some of his own investigations, by the aid of analogy, with the purely physiological mutter of fact Introduced by Dr. Holland. Hemorrhagic fluxes from the nose, bowels and otherwise, in the cases of both males and females, have been repeatedly observed by him in illm-t relation with psychic manifestations, the connections being so close and evident, qs, for Instance, In the case of the celebrated medium of ten i earn ago. Florence Cook, studied by William rookes, K. K.9., that the writer has obtained from her, when she was stepping ont of the cabinet after a successful materialization, a handkerchief saturated with blood; the seat of the congestion on the brain bsldgdetermined by an optical analysis, which showed the organ of color sensation to be profoundly disturbed. By the aid of a judiciously selected aeries of cases, the writer has been able, link by link, to construct a chain of psychical sequence, the Individual members of which were more or leas medlumlsllc In temperament and expression. The extreme links of this chain may be taken as represented by the above case on the one hand, while on the other the type case was that of a young man suffering from a functional neurosis of the sympathetic system manifested by a periodic hemorrhagic flow from the bowel», treated as u case of dysentery until it was shown by the present writer that the periodicity of the attack and the absence of the graver symptoms of dysentery (by the light of sex analogy) pointed more particularly to a derangement of the sympathetic, that department of the nervous system presiding over the emotional side of conscious existence, a diagnosis which was confirmed and acknowledged to be correct from tin» subsequent study of the case for a period of eighteen months. This case is taken as the inferior limit of the chain of extraordinary psychical manifestations; for though notbidg at all of what might be dalled either objective or sub- I eetive spiritualistic^ manifestation wad mown to be related to the case, the trained naturalist will appreciate the fact that fits of unconsciousness, preceded and accompanied by marked Intermittent action of the heart, were a common feature, directly related, of course, to the sympathetic tension, and so far ^apparently, purely organic in Character; but having great light thrown on its Inner nature, from the fact that during true sleep, and the suspension of consciousness, proper, the action of the heart became normal, no matter how marked the intermissions may have been before tbe, patient went to sleep. The s u b je c tiv ity o f the o rg a n ic n ervo u i system Indicated by this case (a subjectivity which cannot be dismissed by clawing the rase as ep ilcp to id. or by making useof any descriptive term whatever),constitutes its great value to the psychologist; It indicates the phenomenon of deranged force«in the nervous operations, induced by to m e definite d is tu r b in g cause, which il appeare must be the fundamental postulate in the phrsioiitu 'F a case os related to the general subject of medium,ship, the writer has little doubt. In support of this view ho may mention that one of the most powerful Loudon mediums of his acquaintance, whose ease he studied professionally, informed him unsolicited, that he suffered from periodica] fluxes of blood from the bowels,his ease being analogous in many ways to that above described. Between theee limits the writer has studied tbe cases of male aod female snbjects, where undoubted relation existed between the appearance of subjective, visual and anral Images, and (he occurrence of cougeetlon, which was relieved by hemorrhage, and he believes that in all the case«so studied neurotic variation in the behavior of the heart could be traced. Borne of these persons could not tell whether the appearances presented were real or otherwise; there is here, however, always to bo considered the difficulty of determining.the existence of the real by the action of the senses alone. The writer feels justified In fat any rate provisionally) considering Dr. Holland's special rase In reference to his own special «tody of the «abject of physiological Spiritualism and, therefore, since Dr. Hoiland-has put himself before the public as a 'professional Illustrator of a profoundly important scientific truth, he must be content to excuse any re'f- erenee to what the writer considers the moat important part of his communication. ' The present writer discu»^d the question of solid dreams some years agio in the London.VpirifvoJi*f, and it was there pointed out that it might be quite possible, without vlo- latipg any of the recognized analogies, to conceive that tbe establishment of stream«lu the ether of space, depending on the radiation from the body of a less degraded form of aneny than that of beat, might.be the physical cause of the formation of what may now be called a spiritual or psychic field, the direct consequence of this nenrie Induction being thepiwctlcabillty ( so-called mate rial- i; it was hinted that, in certain states of thi nervous system, tb* blood might directly furnish what may now be called, to fix Ideas, tbe p tych o -p ta m n a, or stuff which constructed tbe materialised figures; and It was shown that such a stuff might be compared to milk la its physiological properties (L Capable logical treatment of tfie problem of medium- ship. That he is right in Introducing such of being re-ahxorbed by the organism ] If the nrocc*«wiif-reby it was secreted were reversible. By this, ii was intended to to* ronvpyed tfiat n trem endous am ount of m anifestation of spore-occupancy m ight t»»ke place with Very little true irreversible dissipation of energy. if the reader will toke tbe trouble-'to calculate the equivalence of the burning of a few grains of hydrogen in the living bodv. In terms of furniture moving about, he willfind that, the possibility of a reversible process being granted, one «uch as has just been hinted at, very little true physical exhaustion on the part of the medium need appear under the form of work done or matter moved. Constructions maintained by stresses In the space filling ether, L e.. materialized figure«, would certainly demand for their longer or shorter continuance an expenditure analogous to that Incurred when a mass Is held In position against the earth Hattraction, when, though no work is done In the technical sens*, 1, matter moved, or resistance overcome, yet " molecular work " under the form of tension maintained, has to be accounted for with a necessary expenditure of energy. Within the ordinary conditions of animal activity between the expression of energy under tbe form of work done, and its expression under the formof radiated heat, mechanical science lias Uttle knowledge of possible vital activity. Mechanicians have yet to inaugurate the birth of a new branch of their science under the heading of transformed vitalities, the resnlt of the inductive method applied to the empirical Spiritualism of the present day. It in claimed by the present writer as a legitimate induction, from the data offered by modern Bplrltnallsgi, in extension of recognized physical and physiological principles, that between the above two modes lies an expression of energy not so completely reversible as mechanical work, and not so completely Irreverslbly-as heat energy. and that this expression furnishes the condition for spiritual manifestations; physical. where the accompanying form of intuition Is that of the external, end mental or impresslona). when the form of intuition is that of the Internal world of the sense», and mixed with, or partaking of. the nature of both, when both the external and internal forms of intuition are available to the subject. Some interference with tbe ordinary system of nsrvotis controls and Inhibitions, would account for the unreduced energy tem porarily placed at tbe disposal of the individual, or of some other Individual acting upon him, so that mesmerism and Spiritualism must in lime be recognized as departments of some grand science of homan enlargement, tbe science of the nltlrbate solidarity of the race. The new reality, tbe result of perturbations, manifest«on the external world of the «en«ee. taking npou Itself the properties of matter, if only a condition for such manlfe*tatioiis be furnished, a condition which, in He' purely mechanical aspect, the great mathematician and electrician. Clerk Maxwell, proves might be given In the assumption of strseseq and rectangular pressure«inaspaee-fljhngetber; the practical gffcund or working hypothesis upon which Faraday accounted for the results of all his experimental researcheirin electricity. Space is the plen u m to the mathematician and to the physicist, and must be resorted to wherever dearness of Ideas Is desirable In tbe discussion of psychical problem«. Why. when an attempt is made to work at Spirit- ualism on ita real and objective side, should the metaphysician decline to make use of tbe «ame bountiful «npply of energy as is placed at thb call of other naturalists? Since verbal metaphysics have given place to experimental psychology, why should the student, who «till pursues the introspective method, longer refuse to recognize the fact that substac.ee and space are correlatlvely the uni versa! p}6- viders, outside of which- nothing can exist; feeling and motion being In a last analysts the respective properties of their contrasted contents, while matter exists but in sensuons recognition, according to permanent rules of a normal organism, and energy hot the guon- fust, tbe reality at tbe basis, of all possible effort? The writer calls attention to Kant's distinction between space and time, his external and internal forms of Intuition; that whereas only the real and permanent exist in space, all things whatever most exist in time, since time la a condition of their being perceived by the»abjective consciousness. It may.be said that both the trie and the false, the real and unreal, may exist in a conscious lie««, and hence that the content of the Internal form is more general than that of the external. The fact seems to he that the content of the external form is a restriction, a projection In fixed terms of the variable content of tbe Internal. Berkeley said that the space content as given through the sense of vi»lon was the fixed form of tbe spirit; or, to uae his own words, that Mvision is the language of the autbor'of nature." When this id- a is grasped, either in Its general or It«more restricted sense. It 1«seen that the mere external Object may have its spiritual essence so completely cat off from that of the observer, that the sign may entirely replace the spirituality which it repreeeute. the sign plus the consciousness of spirituality being present when the subjectivity la active. Tb# opening up of the subjective caasdouaneas Into the otherwise merely space content, lu Itself a mere sign. Is tbe great achievement of modern 8ptritualism from the point of view of agen- erallxed Berkeleianlsm. The vlvlfieation of tbe sign, tbe recognition, through perturbation, tu t we an still In direct, though sleep- lug ffdatiori'hip w ith.the en tire space con- j tent,' i.c., th e universe, is the tru ly grand outcome of the despised physical Tnnrmcsla- >linns, w hen properly interpreted, in the term s of modern psychology we may say that the ' sign given to consciousness 'a n d, which (» laneuag» in its com pleted process employs! quite a difterent part of the organism from th a t working out the detail«of th a t jixoces*), becomes Itself endowed w ith life when corn- I m nnirations ore opened up between those different parts of the organism ; but this, as before rem arked, involve«an interference w ith those conservative restraint«known to- the physiologist as nervous Inhibitions. It 1«most respectfully submitted that there is no proof of the Identity of the Individualities manifesting themselve«to Dr. Holland- at any rate In the scientific sense of the word proof. We are «Imply Jiffered physiological disturbances on the one side, with a presumably related extraordinary space content on the other. It 1«not attempted to controvert or deny what he knows to be true. Love orarleapa tto rlu language and natrktkmm of science, and. therefore, no reference whatever is intended.to be made to those of bis own flesh and blood, who have so frequently appeared to lilm. But oil the grounds of edmmon sense and as a matter of mere probability, the writer, as one of the public, feels that he is justified lu raising the question of psychical waxworks with regard to the Kmpress Josephine," "Queen Bess," and such like fantastic portraitures." a«shelley has it. of wandering human thought." A* a Spiritualist, the present writer decline«the Invidious posijlon of appearing to kick against the existence of matter of fact, or of endeavoring to explain It away. " The true contention 1». that Dr. Holland was in such a condition as to lie himself a prolmtde factor in the production of the manifesto Hon*, and as such, accountable as a causal agent, to au Indefinite extent; i,t-, not only to some extent the source of the physical energy involved In the manifestations, tut to some extent al«o the source of the guiding Intelligences.

The second term or psychological zero remains so as long as the molecular force«of lbs organ- ism'are allowed to neutralize each other and result in an ezpresnlon of physical energy lower than that which 1«tbe essential basts of conscious feeling; but when the energy thus permitted to pans through the organism without conscious expression, awakes, as It were, on account of the withdrawal of eon- Mtr xponent of the Individuality, is invaded, the subjective as well a* the objective eotj*»*- quenee of such invasion*, have to be considered; and here attention must be drawn to the Immense difference existlng between the term««abjective and conscious.

The causes at work Jn the removal of thewt Inhibition«are various, viz.: emotional, qnasi-vnlitional moral, pathological. and. In face of\the every-day occurrences we read of. extraordinary that is to»ay, spiritual.' To a full understanding oft he theory of spiritualistic manifestations MU-e sketched out, it is necessary to offer the rvader a few remarks on the Berkeleian philosophy of objective existent«in ihe word* of the great Irish mathematician, Sir-W. K. Hamilton: "Physical science treats of the causes of facts, the rationale of observed appearance«, It alms to discover laws of nature, which are. to us, only law«of human thought, such that by submitting to them we can foreuse appearance«, that is.correctly anticipate and expert involuntary states of our existence. Among these laws of nature or laws of thought, those which relate to force and motion are eminent in utility and interest. We are çonscfous of sensations, and irresistibly attribute them to some cause out of our setve»; this conviction being as strong as the eon«clou«qmi- of th«v Henaationa which it ae- cnmpaiiie«. But Berkeley maintains that we have no proof noi; analogy to make us believe that the cause of our sensations 1» different In ««nee from onraelv#«, from the beings on which it arts. Indeed, this cause of sensation appear» from al] ordjoary experience to art not only without caprlc**, but with perfect and underrating regularity according'to dtocoverable law«: and so far this cause or power seem«different in kind from our wills. But the experience of miracles makes Ible the before unseen analogy of this ower to will, by giving example* of an interruption In the usual connection «of jme- Ypmeûis, or sequi-nre of sensations. Miracle«do more; they»bow that tbe being or powèr which the study of our aensahuns has led us to acknowledge as the physical governor of the universe, b also the moral governor, tbe power which' produce«in u«involuntary emotions of remorse or peace; of blame or approbation; and mlraej««have shown that certain men were commissioned by the Great Baler to make known by word«and books his.will and his intentions to ns, on many important aubject*. on which we could not otherwise bave discovered that wilt and those intentions so clearly, if we eonid at all have discovered them-----he (Berkeley) only attacks the doctrine that tbe cause of our sefi- aatlon Is something quite unlike ourselves, unlike all minds, inert. Inactive, unthinking. Thb» doctrine he considers as not oft] destitute of ail proof, hot in a high di improbable; and I confess I think so too. And i am well Inclined to adopt the opinion which he substitut* although one might admit the former reunite, and yet reject or doubt of this; that the immediate causeof all onr sensations U the Supreme Spirit, lo whom we lire, move and have our being, acting on subordinate minds according to rule«which he has allowed them to discover." It will be seen that the aathte mind of Hamilton perceived that the Immediate intervention of the Deity did not provide tbe only possible solution to account tor interruption in the usual sequence of senaatiooe, asm study of tbe last paragraph la the above quotation will «bow. He would not have denied ihe intervention of Intermediate agencies, provided they were of tbe same nature as tbe finite spirit of man on tbe one hand, and the infinile gpirit of the Creator on the other. The writer will not enlarge upon this»abject, but b^wul at once claim this modification of thé d*ft#l»lan theory of causality as tbe necessary and sufficient basis upon- which to rear a cou»!»ten; theory of Spiritualism. T&* prime postulat* 1» that niin. in tor median: spirits and the Dtvlae.Spirit, are of the same nature and that, consequently. substance being one and eingle,.a possible subjective continuity may exist In varions decrees and to as indefinite extent In the mean time we mart by prepared to ealargt our knowledge by an -xtenrioa of tbe rational methods of»rteoc-*, and to accept an explanation u»nairiest, not because toan or angel aayg so, but because soeb explanation la found to fit In with the established and accepted body of natural knowt- * edge.

Ho was not bound legally, but his name had helped lie credit, and he felt that he must make nil jrood. To the creditors lie said: "Give tue time and I will pay yon ali; if you disturb me I cannot do It. In len year* every dollar was paid, thousands more than he was worth on the start. He was a simple nucljmpretending man, plain in hfs mays, of remarkable sagacity and tire leas Industry, ills Integrity and sincerity the highest, his moral courage unsurpassed, his kindness and wise benevolence beautiful, his sound judgment remarkable. He became the leading owner and manager of the Nonotuek Sewing Silk Company, enlarged their works, filled with finest mechanism and employing over four hundred persomi. All that he took part tn must be honest and thorough. There wan no shatu In him, and there should be none in his mills. His word was his bond, his credit undoubted, ills promise unfail lug. j As the village grow tha school house was too small. He said to the town committee: "Givwjne the old house ami I will build a better one, In a year his building was comp le te ^ cost of $35,000. The upper story of a wing was a neat hall, for the use of the Free Congregational Society, and a library and reading room freo to tile factory workers and others, and he paid largely to sustain both. At a later time when all the school house was wanted, he paid over $20,000 toward building Costa Inn Hall for the Society, and helped to sustain this nnseetarlan effort for the presentation of different opinions In religion, the advocacy of practical reforms by representative men and women, and the moral instruct 1ob and innocent recreation of the young. He also paid $1.000 toward a kindergarten school, open to all children. Other men have paid money freely for public purposes, but few have been so unwearied as he was in well doing not known of men or so fatherly in their constant care for others. If sickness or misfortune came to any, ills help lighted their path as quietly and cheerily as the sunshine. If weakness or vice brought the trial, his warning was as faithful as It was kind; hi» sage suggestion was help to a better life, and not self-righteous rebuke. He helped the deserving to help themselves, and opened ways upward for the faithful and capable, Instead of nslng them, and Ihen pushing them down as Belll-di men oftetrdo. He was singularly tboughlful of all that might help the comfort or cultore of the people. The factory girl had from him the same quiet respect any lady of the *t»nd would have; boarding houses were planned for comfort and good bobarior; the atmosphere was everywhere permeated by a fatherly in line nee, a sense of protecting kindness. In his good efforts he had the ready help of co-workers of like spirit, hla son Arthur, A. T. Lily, manager in the mill, and others. The skilled labor needed called for good wages, and this helped to build up a tasteful village or some 3500 people, intelligent and well behaved beyond the average. A few years ago a Christmas party,was made for him In the Hull, Not far below the village was a large cotton mill, owned by another company on the rivfir, and many Irish Catholics were employe^there; but they bad felt a kindly wisdom that knew no limit«of creed, and they camé to tieef Prates tanta and heretics in all good will. They asked Father Hill to go to the foot of the stairs, and there was a nice sleigh, the gift of warm and honest hearts. -~ He whs so quiet and unpretending a* not to be appreciated by Btrangere, but his goodness and greatness grew with intimacy. In the " martyr days" of early anti-slavery, he wa* an abolitionist; among rigidly orthodox people he was a heretic, but with fidelity to conscience aa firm as that of any Pnrltan. Thought of reputation or business prospects never turned his course or sealed bis lips, and by this nobleintegrlty he won the respect and confidence of all; nls success a lesson to all time-servers and moral cowards, hla bravely persistent Industry aud courage a lesson to all weak and aimless soni».

One of the best things for a young' man sometime# Ls to find out bow little be knowb. It take# down bis self-conceit aud settica him Into deeper thinking. At the Association I had that lesson. I was at the ago when self-. esteem is active, and was looking forward to the study of theology. Of course 1 felt wise! A Massachusetts youth who was a Whig, a Unitarian, and a prospective clergyman would naturally have a fair share *of complacent belf-satlsfaction. I had a room In a house G irtly occupied by Mr. Stetson and his fam- y, from Brooklyn, Ct, Mrs, Stetson was & superior woman, a personal friend of Samuel J. May, and other early anti-slavery leaders. One evening in their room the talk turned on antl-«lavery, and she quoted nome Bible text«favoring freedom. Gravely and with oracular aspect I spoke of Paul and Ones) mus, and of the apoiitfo sending the slave back to hla master. I can Bee yet the shade of amused pity that spread over iter fine face as she heard me through. Then she took up' the matter, and expounded the scripture In the light of liberty. As she expounded I became utterly con founded, perplexed and ashamed at my want - of knowledge and moral Insight. That l.one of the lords of creation, should bo made to feelk? by a woman! T, who hoped some day, like Bcott a Domina Sampeon, to wag my paw In the pul pi t,nshou] doe so hum I Hated by this woman, unlearned, as I supposed, in clerical lore! She was kind, but that made tall the worse. My conceit was,alt gone, r id there really seemed nothing left of mo. could not sleep half the night, thinking of my confusion atidt chagrin, -but at last It dawned on me that it was all right, and the next day. I went and heartily thanked hor for her words. We became cordial friends, and haring 'come into a teachable mood, I learned a great deal more from her. A VITI 13 EXPERIENCE THEO LOG ICAL STUDY ENDED. Another experience of that year la yet vivid. It woe one of those gleams of41the light that Dover wa* on Jand or sea. I boarded with my nods, Calvin Slebblnt, who came only tostay a year. He was a reader of realty great boo«, and one day he asked me li t bad ever seen Barelit b Apology," a Quaker work. I did not know of the book, and bad never met a memher of the Friend's Society. He handed it tome and told me how It* author.

I read the book with greal Interest. Its quaint language attracted me; Its noblesplr- lt and clear argument and insight held me and stirred my soul. 1 read It again, omitting some minor part«, but atudying his views or the inner light, of present inspiration, «f forms and ceremonies. Sabbaths, set-prayers, holy places, and ordained priests. A tide of new thought seemed to fill my whole soul, A Hood of light seemed to Illumine my inmost being. It was a lovely Juuo afternoon when I reached the last page of the book. I sat alone In that large, square, west chamber Its low ceiling and hare floor, with my pwa- table covered with oil doth, and my old Boston rocking chair In th«centre, I can see all; not us through the dim haze of years, hut as of this very hour. I paused ho If-way down the page, sat and thought, looked out of the windows, as though the grass and fiqwers, the sparkling stream, thp great hills beyond, the hum of the mill, and the blue sky, might Help... I read on slowly to the last word, aud then came au inward assurance, a new tide of spiritual life and light, i closed the book, luld my hand on 11, and spoke out with firm voice: "There! 1 shall never be an ordained minister. From that hour all plans and studies for a clergyman s career were given up without hesitation ortegipt, I have some good friend«among tliri clergy; good and true men, but my own pajir is clear. The world will need, and wilt -have, higher religious teachings In the future. Jluw they shall como la not for mo to say. We can air work and wait for the divinity that shapes our ends." \ CHAPTER III. * ANTI-SLAVERY GARHI80N WOMAN-BOT/BAGE TEMPERANCE. While at the Northampton Association 1 first knew William Lloyd Garrison, and began to understand tho anti-slavery movement. There was to bo a convention In the old church nt Northampton, aud notices wore sent to the towus near, to-be read iu the pulpits. This was a good way to test the clergy. The ttboll- tioulsbi said their effort was religious In thu deepest sense, their aim " to Drench deliverance to the captive, and that the church and clergy were In duty bound to help, if a clergyman read a notice from his pulpit it showed his sympathy; if not, he was held os blind or time-serving, practically au ally of slavery. They said to the ministers: "If our way does not suit you, show us a better, hut do something. Don t bo like dumb dogs. In this histones a notice vyas sent to Hatfield, and I was at home with my father thu Sunday U was read In the pulpit. It was handed to the young pastor by one whom he did not like to offend, yet he knew its reading would offend others; so ho coupled It with u warning not to go, as dangerous men and infidels were to be there. This facing both ways Bulled nobody. Before we were fairly off the Hieps of the meeting house, one of the best church members said: " I shall go and hear for myself," The warning was au iuvltatioh accepted by him and others. My father'd advice to bear all sides, sent me there, and 1 found a go- d au dim ice. whose general intelligence ana decorum surprised me. Among the group of speakers on the platform in front of the pulpit was one quite bald, with a genial face, strong and hopeful, wearing gold spectacles, simply but neatly dressed, of substantial clean-cut form, rather above the average slxe, his attractive and inspiring presence giving an impression of a clear sighted man who would go straight to the mark. This wa* Harrison, the incendiary, traitor of politicians, the arch-infidel of pro-slavery preach- orat He spoke with intense earnestness, and great moral power, but with entire self-poise, and In the beat spirit. I thought, "Verily, the devil Is not so black as he is painted. But the old prejudice was not gone. The next day my friend, Mrs. Stetson, my Paul and Ouesimn* expounder, asked me; "How did yon like Mr. Garrison? I replied: "Ho spoke well. I guess be wasn t in one of bis black moods." She laughed nnd Bald: " You will never see him la a black mood, and 1 never did. Soon after this came a great convention In Boston, and I wanted to go, but did not wish to ask my father for money to pay my expense«. Fortunately, Just In time, a message came to me from the great button- factory store at ilaydeuvllle, tocotueand help them take tho yearly account of stock, I w«dt, worked hard a week or more, came away with twenty-five dollars in my pbeket. independent as a millionaire, and went to Boston for a week. In the old Marlboro chapel I heard Phillips, Garrison, Abby Kplly. Parker, PHUbury, Pierpont and others. Such impassioned eloquence; such moral and spiritual power; such bold rebuke and warning; such exposure or iniquity in high places such tender pleading for the wronged and plundered! I felt that they were right, and went home under conviction. But I thought that possibly this splendid eloquence had swept me of! my feet, and resolved to wait a fortnight, think it over quietly, and then decide. The resolution was good, but the end of my appointed time found me an avowed abolitionist. This avowal la easy to tell of now, but It was not easy to make then. The rising generation can form but a faint idea of tha sway of the «lave power, the prejudice against abolitionists, and the contempt and hatred of the negro nt that time. Tho pest reached everywhere, like the frogs of hgyot in the plague of Pharaoh. The majority of the cler- B t of oil sects and sections, from Texas to nine, held slavery oh a1divine institution, sanctioned by the Bible, and those who did not, were overawed and «Dent. James G. Blrnev tells of a " PaetoralLatter of the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 183d. lo their churches and minister«, exhorting them; * To abstain from all abolition movements and associations, and to refrain from patruu- Itlng any of their publications....from every view of the subject which we have been able to take, and from the most calm and dispassionate survey of the whole ground, we have come to tho conclusion that the only, safe, prudent, and scriptural way for ns, both. ohministers and people, to take, is icaoiig to rtfrain from thu agitating M»y«f.

Edward Everett, when governor of Massachusetts, recommended the legislature to pass a law against anti slavery agitation. Grave orthodox doctors of divinity In New England, were the clerical defenders of the slave system, and a ünlulriau Alvino would send his mother (or brother) back Into slavery to save the Union. The lesser lights did their part. I remember once giving an anti-slavery talk on a packet boat on the Erie canal, at the request of the passengers, and after Us close noticing a serious looking man. with the clerical white neck doth, talking quietly to single persons, book In hand.

In the lljthl Oí a wrortd'n Ilbertf." Garrison was once expostulated with by hla friend, Raquel i). May. a man mild but fearless, on hlastrength of expression. Mr. May aald: " WhÿrnarrNon, you are a perfect volcano.'* and the answer was: " I am surrounded by monntalns of ice, and It needs a volcano to melt them." On the first of January In the first number of his Li hern for, in Boston, Mr. Garrison said: " I aot aware that many object to the severity of my language; hut Is there not cause for severity? I will bo as harsh as truth imd ns uncompromising as justice. I am In earnest. I will not equivocate I will not excase I will not retreat a single Inch and I will bo heard. The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from Ils pedestal, amt to hasten tho resurrection of the dead. It Is pretended that I am retarding the canse of émancipation by the coarseness of my Invective, and the precipitancy of my measure. The charge la not true. On thla question my Influence, humble as It Is, Is felt at this moment to a considerable extent, and «hall be felt in coming year«not perniciously but beneficially not aa a curse but as a blessing; and posterity will bear witness that I wa* right. The soldier from the confederate army, glad of the death of elavery, will Join with the soldier from the army of the Unlon.tobear wllness. that this trulh speakiqg pioneer was a true prophet. To day we see verified the poetic vl«inn of Whittier: The am»» crew creen on tattle-plain*. On swarded war-mod!«!* graced the cw, The»Isvo «nod forcing from hmcnaini, The spade and ptuugh." The pioneer abolitionists were devmpd. plain In speech, uncompromising and stern in rebuke. To make out judgment of them complete, to discern clenrly, not alone the spirit nod temper of Garrison, but of the early anil-slavery advocates, whether Garrisonian* or liberty-party men, we mustkput In connection with these stern rebukes of wrong Komethlug'to show their feeling toward the wrong-doer, n feeling void of all ygirgeance or haired, and ready lo overcome evil with good. Here again Garrison^«words are In place:. "The slave-holders have impeached onr motives' libeled our characters, and threaten' ed out lives, No Indignity is too great to be heaped upon us; no outrage too shocking to be perpetrated on our persona or property. And now wo will have our revenge! God helping us we will contlnae to use all lawful and Christian means for tho overthrow of their suicidal slave system. Ours Is tho agitation of humanity in view of cruelty, of virtue iu opposition to pollution, of holiness against Impiety. It la the agitation of thunder and lightning to purify a corrupt atmosphere, of the storm to give new rigor and freshness to field and forest. Ours ls the incendiary spirit of truth, that burns up error, of freedom that melts the fetters of the bondman, of im partial love that warms every breast with-the sacred fire of heaven. Could any men. bht those ot extraordinary moral courage and endurance, sustain unflinchingly a contest which requires such toss of reputation, and such hazard of property and life? They'are tho wtuuowlng of the nation. When that slave-system falls^ra' fall It must we will repay them with rich blessings. We wilt remove from them all source of alarm, and the cause of all, insurrection; increase the value oí their estates ten fold; give au Eden-llke fertility to their perishing soil; build up the old waste places aud repair all breaches; make their laborers contented, grateful and happy: and Ilia dormant spirit of enterprise; open to them new source# of affluence; multiply their branches of Industry; erect manufactories, build railroads, dig canals; establish schools, academies, college* and all beneficent Institutions; extend their oommerce to the ends of the earth, and to an unimagined amount; turn the tide of Western adventure and Northern capital into Southern channels; unite the North and the South by indissoluble ties; change the entire moral aspect ot society; cause pare and undefiled religion to flourish; avert impending judgments and secure heavenly blessings, and fill the land with peace, prosperltkand happiness! Thu*, a n d rkuton/tf. will we vie revenged upon them for ail tha evil they^re now doing, or may hereafter do to us past, presen t and to comer i tinned. 1 Spirit Children Speaks us past, pres (To be continuo a Vl.lt i W i to HI* Grani.Cemetery, and One dm o tti ft. grandmother, who doe* not claim to be a Spiritualist, says that about 4:30 or 6 p. or about the hour tho school children find the vision, while out Id the door-yard, she happened lo cast her eyes tdward the house. As she did so. she plainly saw her little grandchild sitting on the door-step. He got up and ran toward and near her. She says she saw him so plainly, and ho looked so natural, that for the moment sbefforgot that he waa dead. Addressing him she said; "What do you want, Willie? I want my mamma. replied the child. At this he turned around and started toward the house, and In n moment after vanished. \ Tho grandmother, I learn, persist* In declaring that she caw the child plainly and heard him sneak audibly. It is further stated to me that ene has, on one or two subsequent occasions, seen the same spirit grand-child. The above are the' fact* substantially a* stated to mo by a credible and in evejy way. trustworthy gentleman. Tlio Incidents at the time created considerable comment In the neighborhood where they occurred. And now a few word* of a general D&ture: A few days agu I followed the mortal remains of a friend to their last resting place. A* I was leaving the cemetery my attention was attracted to a woman who was weeping bitterly over a newly made mound the grove of her child. Moved by a feeling of sympathy, I hesitated a moment as I passed her. Her lamentations wore not loud, hut were deep and agonizing, I did not question her, bat I know full well that «he had received little or no consolation from the orthodox religion, III whose schools she had been taught and whoso dogma* she conscientiously trie* to bellevo. How I yearned. to say to her: Como away from that grave; your darling child Is not 'Imprison«! there. The grave cannot hold the Immortal, divine part of man, There Is no death. So-called death is bnt a temporary separation of friends; nay, it Is not always a separation, for the departed can atid do visit us, bud sometimes wo can hold sweet communion with them. Lookup! Look within! Turn away from the dry husks of a dismal theology formulated in the dark ages, and embrace the soul-elevating truth of spirit communion and the Harm on I al Philosophy, If a man die,' he «AaH li ve again. Million* have proof positive of this; nil may have the evidence. Respect and beautify, without oatentatloua display, the cemeteries the lost resting place or the departed, but think not of your already resurrected friend* as residents of the narrow, cold grave. They are not there, unless like the spirit children mentioned above, they go for a brief visit or from motive* of curiosity, or are led nnd directed by wiser minds for study and Improvement.".

Your late corespondent was not fully informed re* spectirfg her unfortunate surroundings and.circumstance* upon her arrival in this distant land. Being the first professional materializing medium to comii to this colony, great expectations were indulged in by many anxiously seeking for the crowning evidence of a future life, but quite unacquainted with the best mode of arranging sittings and providing (he necessary conditions. The matter of proper conditions ia very Important with some mediums, and of each Mis* Wood None. Having sat with her more than thirty times, occasionally with very gratifying result«, an deratrict and eatlsfactory tests, yet not In frequently without the occurrence of anything beyond simple trance, I think I am In a position to Bpeak «omewhai confidently. She needs the psychical assistance of an Inner circle, the sympathy of tbe major portion of her sitter«, and the exercise of patience, with the repreaeinn, for the time befug, of a tendency to active, ont-epokon skepticism. Upon more than one occasion have I been present where undoubted materialised spirits bare presented them selves, and lo! -Adverse comment has bean openly made, when tbe form«bare retreated predpltantly, perhaps with a remark upon the destructive effeet of the " cold biaat proceeding from the querulous spectator; and that baa been-the end of the night's phenomena. Her «lance* arc mulnly held at tho residence of a gentleman, fresh in the spiritualistic ranks, who with great kind, nesa has mada her a welcome guest and placed rooms at her service when nccded/'ratret, tho ' Hitting* wore held In the dining-room, au office communicating therewith nnd extending upon thu veranda, being made uso of ns a cabinet.

A gn at hnbbab wa* made about the cabinet. It was alleged that accomplice* entered from the veranda, although Mias Wood is á stranger, having neither relative nor acquaintance here, but how either medium or accomplice penetrated through tha netting wa* nut deemed worthy of explanation. Now, however,. when sitting at the house in question or elsewhere, MJaa Wood dispense* with a cabinet, and is tied, or tied and wtltched, lo a chair, need In a corner, with blank waits on either ind, aud curtain* a couple ot pace* away, in froojof her.

Besides,. this, I have seen Pocha go through the process of dematerlabzatiou; lu front of. bat away from, tbe curtains; and she has several times drawn aside one curtain while materialized, so that we might see tho medium as well oji herself. These excellent proofs of the separate Identity of spirit and medium are only afforded when conditions are good, and that state of goodness seem* not to prevail coln- ohnntly with the presence of nnfeaflonablo and very skeptical individuals; consequently they give no heed to what others witness, of which sight to them is denied. I have been more or less mixed up with tho advocates of Spiritualism for the past twenty years, and am somewhat susceptible to mental impressions coming as Lthluk from tho Spirit-world. Some three,weeks or so after your late correspondent'«'decease, at an extemporized sitting for physical manifestations, at which Ml*» Wood was present, l felt that friend Cavenagh was Indeed by my side, nnd was moved to make a declaration that ho was determined to appear to us soon as a materialized spirit. Subsequently at one or two séances rocha described a gentleman with n long dark beard a* making great effort* to build himself up. and what purported tq represent him was indistinctly seen projecting n short distance fropj the curtain.

Much more liberal laws prevail, and In 1870 girls were admitted to the university, where they can take university degrees. It is against the custom, though, and the?*' old countries are curiously averse lo leaving the beaten path. There are now but two girl-» at the two foremost universities of the kingdom. It is considered mi feminine for girls to study with boys, and Mr. Stanton says that the ideal of womanhood is to be remarked as little as possible and never to leave the beaten path. Holland, Belgium and France are about equal lo bestowing privileges upon woman. In the latter country, the universities have been open since 18*11 to women, but Inasmuch as they were unable to secure the necessary preparatory training, U was of little advantage to them. Switzerland, proverbially free, Is niggardly and sever«upon women. Most of those yrho lire educated at Geneva and Zurich, are from Russia.

The prehistoric savage trembled before everything that eoctnoil to exhibit a power greater than his own, arid the manhood of today Is uncomfortable before the knowledge that the unseen contains greater powers than that which to visible. People have been afraid of ghosts, because the apparition was supposed to wield these unknown powers. In reah-. ty their fear was of some harm to themselves, since no one is afraid of being made happy. Nowadays familiarity with spirits soou destroys fear of spirit power, but there to a wide spread belief in the ability of spirits to do a great deal In earth life, which to impossible to mortals. As I deem this one of the most serious mistakes of investigators, i propose now to Inquire into that phase of spirit power which constitutes what is called roediumship. " The eye of God Is upon yon," ha» been an ec clestottical thxoaptrom the days of the uredl- ciue man to khat of the Pope of Rome; and Investigators children of pious ancestors have a feeling Intentor expressed that unseen intelligences see nil that they do and hear all that they say. Having this belief they an constantly wonderlbg at the failure of spirit controls of mediums, to give them the exact truth they are seeking. It seems to me that it would be wise for the investigator to determine where spirit power begins and ends before jcryltig fraud or growing disheartened over mistakes. Of course we know that Sensitive organisms respond to a will power stronger than their uwn. The mesmerist proves that upon the public platform, aud the unseen mesmerist signally proves it through the mortal he entrances, who becomes his medium; but the power of the niesjnerlzer Is limited to a use of the faculties posseispd hy his medium. He cannot make the dumb speak nor wield any spirit power, lor which hto medium does-bot supply an organ, Whilst here on earth the mortal is dual. The vitalized form hy which we recognize one another, and which form we mark as our.friend or foe, to nutted to a form unseen hy Meeting at (jmsadaga Lake. The annua) meeting of the Uaxsndnga Lake Association was field on June 71 h and Kth. The weather was lovely, and on Saturday (tie meeting 1vas opened hy O. F*.K>nqgg, who spoke of the "Law of Compensation. He alluded happily to the generous friends who had built the amphitheater and a pleasing group of cottages, lie thought that the consolation derived from our religion would compensate them for all their toll? Mrs. R> S. Lillie followed, and with inspired words she gladdened and cheered many hearts. On Sunday morning the»on looked down upon us from a cloud less sky, Damon's band, of Dunkirk, N. Y., enlivened the morning with sweet music, and at an early hour the worshipers began to assemble, and at the appointed time a large audience was convened in the pavilion. Mr. J. H. Randall, of Jamestown. N. Y was Introduced, and in a few well chosen remarks, lie showed that lie was a thinker, and comprehended the vital Issues of the day. We were then addressed hy Mr. Kellogg ami Mrs, Lilli«?, and nobly they did their work. They Are BjdriluultotH, with the right ring, and all who heard them will remember their efforts with pleasure. ' I can nut speak too highly of the marked improvements that have been made on the camp grounds during the last year. The devotee of the new faith has built so wisely and»o well here that, for years to come, a benign influence will gn'-forth from this consecrated s i s t o hies* the world, and thousands will be attracted hither to listen to the gospel of love aud purity. It was easy to note a satisfied took Upon the genial face of Brother- and Sister Skidmore, as they stood and " viewed the landaqnp» over, so full of promise of the good time coming, PERSONALS-. Mr. D. K. Bailey, of Buffalo, N. Y-hfis Just completed 0U«of Die finest houses on -the ground; it is on Cottage avenue m-ar the entrance of the ground». As we pass «long the avenue we come to Sister Loti s cottage, wjtidt Is completed, and awulls it» venerable and respected occupants. Next we meet Mr». Judge Cook, of Jamestown, N.

Mr. Lynn- Sure I m given,* new coat of paint to his house, which adds greatly to Its original beauty. Brother Whittaker Is adding a new veranda and fresh paint, which is a marked improvement. Next, we see Mr». Putnam's ami Raynor's, two little Gothic cottages, which are situated on the same lot, and we must say that they are ornament» to the grounds. Mr. Walter Wait; Mr. Wadsworth, of Randolph, N. Y.; J. V. Mather, of Bear Lake, and J, J. Akin.C. W. Judd, and B, F. Webb, of Blooming Valley, Pa., have fine cottage». A. J. Damon ha» put up the largest house on tire grounds. Mr. H. L. Rowe and Mrs. Ldrlna Baker hate also built» very handsome cottage, and so the improvements goon., l,he o f f ic e r s of the Association have neither spared pains uor money to make the camp meeting which commence» July "ii ith.a grand success. Damon's band lias been engaged for the entire meeting, and It will not dtoap point the high expectation of their friends. Mr. 0. P. Kellogg wilt have charge of the grand pavilion. The best talent in the country lias been employed as speaker», and we feel that an appreciative public will respond- hy coming up In moss to the worship of the living God. nnd this year will be a glorious Magazine» for July not before Mentioned.

The five chapters devoted to England are specially valuable, headed, as they Tire, by a report from the wife of the blind Postmaster General. Mrs. Mellicent Garrett Fawcett. Mr. Stanton exhibits the fact that women have come nearer to political emancipation In Austria and Hungary, than In any other /continental country. Iln that empire a duly authorized citizen casts a vote for them in municipal, provincial and national elections,.whenever their tax rate reaches a specified amount. In Bohemia, although the number of females exceeds the males by 200,000. the chief institutions of learning are closed against them, though within a few years high schools for girls have been established at Prague. In Russia similar law to that of Austria exists In regard to women who own property. The peasant *omen bear heavy hardens and hove few opportunities. In the middle clasa. gymnasia or Intermediate school» do not afford a sufficient course of Btudies to enable girls to enter the universities whietr have Adopted co education for several years. So eagerly do the daughters of the better class avail themselves of this opportunity, that 900 girls annually matriculate at ln*\bul venmy of St. Petersburg. At the first exftm- iuntion for graduation, two year» ago. nlu'e tv-nine young women obtained degree» In the literary and historical department, sud sixty-four in the scientific.

In some State» the illltorato number one half the population, and in the TwoSiciUee pine ty-lhree per cent, can not read. Those who have seen the utterly hopeless and degraded women who toll In the field like, and frequently with, beasts of Harden, wilt realize how much there Is yet to be done for one half of humanity. There is no law to prevent women from taking any degree In the universities, and we ihay expect a good deal from this liberty, when the state of development has reached a higher level. is Dip true self, the Immortal manhood which play» upon Die wondrous instrument we call human, and nil through earth-life acto a» control to 11«mortal medium. This spirit, though bound to the earth form by a magnetic chain, whose»everance means death, ha«a freedom of movement of which most of us little dream. The oft-repealed appearance of the double, and the control of trance medium» by the spirit of a mortal, are sufficient proofs of this. We are thus facing two fact# of great Importance: first, that our spirits Have the same menus of acquiring knowledge pofl»e»ned by spirit»out of the form.and on the same sphere of aspiration aud development; and, second, that spirit«, whether In or out of the form, are dependent upon the susceptibility, of a human brain yet In tbs form, for passing this spirit knowledge down into mortal life. Bat I hate already shown in a previous ar.u- -cle that the Spirit owner of a mortal brain has a faf more complete control of that sensitive organism than can he wielded by any foreigner, and I wish now to point out the very limited power of the spirit out of the form to see into the details of our daily lives. I have recently tried a very InterestingExperiment Intended to put this to the proof. I proposed to the control of a trance medium that she should come to me in the quiet of my own room and. If possible, manifest her presence. She was to take careful note of what ehe might see,»o as to report to me through her medium trie next day. To my surprise she claimed to bare rocked a- chair Id my room.and then to have palled my fingers apart one by one. Now, to my mortal sight Die chair gave no evidence of motion, and my fingers were not consciously pulled.although I did experience a burning sensation In the palm of my hand. We hers discover a very important fact, and may leam an equally Important lesson. The spirit believed she v u visibly rocking that chair, and tanaibiy grasping my fingers, one hy one. Most likely a spirit chair and spirit fingers re»jxmded to her touch: bnt»lie not only overestimated Jier power over material object»,but absolutely failed to realize-her own relation to myself and to the objects around me Of coarse she might have discerned more accurately had I supplied medial power, but that Is not tb»*point here. I learn as a positive fact that the communication between the two worlds.to-far leas perfect than many enthusiasts believe. I note that my dearest spirit friend yea, my guide nr guardian angel can, under normal clrcum- ptancesjwe only my spirit form, and is unable lo judge as to the effect he I* producing upon TU» hy his utmost effort; although my earth form niay be practically invisible to him, it *1* quits possible be may at a glance discern that di-'hxrmow ofepirit w ih matter. wwch w» critl diseaserafid It la tj&ry probable onr kcnfsl troubles sretsfleetad upon our interior form.

Britten had given to the cause, and invited Mr, J. T. Lillie to give some rnuilc, both vocal and Instrumental, which he did with fine effect, and it received a hearty appreciation by all present. MRh A. M. Beecher made a short address, and iu word«well spoken, she gave expression to earnest appreciation of the work of Dr. and Mrs. Britten. Mrs. Britten, under control, spoke of the trial» and difficulties which surrounded all true and faithful mediums, and more particularly Dio itinerant lecturer, wjio often nret cold, unsympathetic audiences, and when they found kindnese and love and were taken Into the homes and hearts of earnest and Bvrppathlzlug friend*, like Judge Dailey and wile, It diode a red letter day Qj their live».

Last Hoars Orthodox and Heterodox. Thomas Carlyle well said: " To die decently In a small thing; to lire truly Is man s highest work." Lif^ia a bettor tent of char actor than thb change which we call death, and to prepare to live righteously each day is the best preparation for that great change which awaits as all. Pitiful, It 1. toseo what large stress the Christian world puts on the death of Jesus, and wj^t little on hie life. Ills death was bat tho rrealtjuid completion of bis earthly career. That prayer on the cross: " Father forgive them, they know not what they do, was tho sweet utterance of the spirit that had animated and inspired his dally actions,and wltliont thoae actions wonld not hare been possible. A good beginning, a faithful persistence In;well-doing and a peace- fnl transition will come in natural succession, the last largely dependent on what transplr, ed before it.. Why, then, make the last so much and all the rest so little? We can judge a man by his life fa? better than by his death, because that life tells a long story of persistent faith and tenderness, of courage and Adel' ity If It he a true life that la; If not, the story Is of weakness and darkness of faith while hta death only telto the mood of a short hour In which pxlu or dullness of bodily senses often play a large part. Other things being equal the death of tbs righteous Is moetpe&ce- f nl, yet sometimes the bad man may seem to sink calmly away, while the good man s last breath may be drawn In agony. Moat absurd la It to think that none die peacefully except those who believe in Jesus," In the narrow evangelical bo use who have been "redeemed by his atoning blood." Doubtless glimpses of the glory beyond tbe veil and the spirit presence of frlende gone before, often light up tbe last earthly hour with a heavenly radiance,, bnt these do not some to the orthodox Christian only, but to Pagan, Jew'and Christian alike, In all ages and lands. Tho assurance of a blessed future Is not for the follower of Christ alone. The hymn reads: Jesus can oak«a dying bad. Feel soft as downy pillows arts' but Cicero, in Pagan Rome, in his charming essay, Dt Senectnte Of Old Age tells ns how, aa he draws near to death, he seems to be getting eight of land, and about to enter a pleasant harbor After a long voyage. Looking for the delight of a reunion with friends he toys: " 0 glorious dayl when I shall go to that divine company and assembly of spirits." To him his frienda are in an existence more truly living than when here. Socrates, quietly waiting for the fatal cup of hemlock, serenely told to his weepiug friends: No evil can happen to a good man, either 1n Ufa or after death." Those whom orthodox professors count as tost heretics and luqdets, die In joy unspeakable. Alexander Pope, In his wonderful hymn, said; Hark, they whlsperl angels mj, Rtetsr»ptrtt ooroe swayp What la this «tootle ma quite, Stasia my unsaa, shut* my tight. Drowns my spirit, draws my breath, Tell ma, my tool, ran tbla bedeethr Bnt the spiritual opening of the inner life which these* golden words give some faint lest hour on earth. Bnt they come with dearer light where there le natural spiritual culture and education. Nat long since we heard of the last day of a veteran Spiritual- let, a man beloved and honored by all, and greatly loted by his family. Hie Illness was sudden and unexpected, hie pain at times severe, hut in intervals of bodily ease he told hts children he must leave them, asked them to be of good cheer for their own Bakes, and that his passing away might be cheerful, lie gave directions for hto funeral, told them.he should bo present to see and hear all that was done or said, and ehould ever do voice failed and he Bank Into a trustful rest like a weary yet happy child no fear or i loom, yet "the blood of Jesus " waa of no loment to hlm^he had no faith lif atone, lent, or Trinity or an Infallible Bible, but he illd have Inspiring faith and sustaining knowledge of the future life and of Spiritualism. Of him on Ills deatfi bed. as of many of like views, It might bo said: a HThe lowly chunter of Uiy rest Shall beam Willi many su angel-gnost. And Nature lay her tribute sweet Of health and beaut; ml thy feet. No creed»hall hind thy froe-born might Nor shadow veil the heavenly highl. Rut sorrow from thy soul shall cease, And God» own preeeunvglte thee peace." A young man passed away some years bidcjj lit Western New York, a Spiritualist, and tho only eon of a widowed mother. He was of excellent personal character, apd was the skill ful m anager^ tlieir largo farm, f bought- fulness for others was hla marked trait. On his bed. when he felt he had bnt a few brief hours to live, he was quietly suggesting plans for the future good of the family, and told his mother be wished to see their hired man a person.whom he respected and trusted. The man came, and his dying friend said to him: I owe you a hundred and fifty dollars; when I am gone It may take yon months to get It, and you Bhould have It now." His mother,brought the money and paid it over- The duty done so quietly and pleasantly on his part gave him new peace. In two hourb he had entered tho llfo beyond as easily as one would pass into a lighted room. He was not helped,or hindered by any thoughts about "salvation by Christ," for Bueh Ideas were no part of bis education. A Persian poet, far from Christian teaching, centuries ago on his own death bed gave a golden poem In which he s.tld: v Let the bouse forsaken perish; Let the shell decay: Break the cage, destroy the garment*. I am faraway. Call not this my aratb, I pray you; Tis my tlfo of life, Goal of nil my weary wandering«, End of all my strife," Tho Immortal Jlfe Is In aa, and gleams from the regions beyond the grave, come to the good and true of many creeds. We would not dim their radiance In life or In the lost hoar, but let ns pat aside tbe false conception that none save those " ransomed by tbe blood of the Lamb, can live religiously or die in sweet peace, or In such Joy os no words can tell. To Your Tents, V Israel! This was the universal war-cry of the Jews, When an obnoxious law was made, a tyrannical act done, tho gathered people looked In silence from under bent brows, till some one voiced their unspoken thought- and shouted, " To your tents, 0 Israel." It meant war, rebellion, letting loose Qerco and bitter passions. We have changed all that. The cry to hosts of people in alt oar cities, with every recurring summer, Is hot a call to flerco and prolonged activity, to dally combat, but to peacofal rest, to social enjoyment. The dwellers In tbe cities discover that their thoughts are getting less clear, their motions less elastic than they ought to be. and turn from the noise, dust and smoke to the pure and peaceful scenes of tbe country from the fierce antagonisms, the Intense rivalry of trade or polities, to new and quiet thoughts; from the care and orderly arrangement of home to the free tent-life. In tbe shadow of the woods, where the summer breexee whisper of peace, and restfal communion with nature restores 'wasted energies. The camp meeting Is a purely American Institution. The gathering In scenes of na tnral beauty of a mass of people with similar tastes and purposes, tbe free, unconventional life, where the very want of some accustomed things even seems to add a east to life, is an experiment never tried out of the tinned States, and not even here by the very rich. The different religious denominations learned from their early efforts the eed and the use of camp meetings. While the country was yet young, when no large buildings eouty be had, camp meetings for a few days at a time, were a real necessity. But soon It was discovered that health to the body as well as a new life to the eoui could be had by a little wholesome neglect of business, a lutle suspension of accustomed activities, a little dt. version of attention, If not to new thoughts, at least to a study of the bearings of old ones In new directions and under new Influences. All over the land, as summer comes, la provision made for the assembling of tho crowds needing health, restand recreation, and every year thousands go for a shorter or longer perl od, and return refreshed, better fitted to take, np the burden of life, stronger, happier, wiser because for a lutle white the/ have communed with Nature, and shaped their life more In accordance with It, The Spiritualist doe*not like the ordinary a Whose supplications, seem too >a renewal of the excitements they tlons, tbe much like have (led from; besides other vital objections which exist. But a Spiritualist camp meeting is, not only to thousands of Spiritualist*, but to other thousands.oueof the most delightful spots upon earth. No long rows of dingy, silent tents, all alike, no gltom or stiffness, but each cottage or tent made os pleasing In exterior, as comfortable wllliih, os Is possible for (he taste and means of tis occupant. A walk through the ample, well-kept street» of Buch a meeting Is full of pleasant surprises, kaleidoscopic changes of color, and new all he wisely could for them, and then hi«fo'ftos of decoration continually presenting themselves. Then, too. such a camp meeting Is not meant for the mortification of the flesh, but Its building np. There Is always a good hotel, alwyjys excellent.provision for physical needs. Ilis not strange that, year after year, people who don't want to have anything to do with Spiritualism,.visiting one of these camps on business with some tent dweller," with grim resolve to leave as soon as the business Is done, forget their resolution and stay to tho end of the meeting* and come again the next year. Nowhere are men and women more natural and unconventional, nowhere does Spiritualism take on a more varied aspect, nowhere does tho enthusiastic prophet of the good time coming, meet with such spontaneous, hearty appreciation. Are there any evils springing from these gatherings? Yes ; what mortal thing can be free from evil? Have not orthodox camp meetings Keen denounced sometimes? There is something In tho freedom of the tent-life, the relaxation of the bonds of city restraint that la easily taken advantage of by those of the baser sort. In.some of the Spiritualist camp meetings they have sometimes been plagued with the presence of men.and women who were morally foul, and there did not seem any way to cure the evil. But the better class were determined their pleasant summer gatherings should not be under the control of a class whose teaching and example were vile, and most of the Spiritualist camp meetings are now as free from all offensive things as those of the rigidly orthodox, while they nre far more pleasant to dwell In. Die gathering of the clans will soonbegla; the people are already preparing to flock to the camps. On every hand ijiay be heard-tho modern equivalent to the old Jewish cry: Are you going to camp meeting?- The Immortal Life, religion* camp meeting. The atmosphere to Idea, U no partial gift bestowed only on o r-: apt to seem slightly sulphurous when some tbodox pietists.

This is called a materialistic age, sud it Is, but It la also a spiritual age. The foundations of faith are shaken by new Inquiries, the supremacy of the senses over the soul Is proclaimed, the agnostic doubts all that his hands cannot touch, or hla dim eyes see; but ever the soul assert* Itself, the old questions are asked with new light to help their answering, the old fono- datlodh are shaken, and thus settled down firmly to solid bed rock, and so the lloht of. Immortality etili shines all the brighter In growing nnmber of open souls. John W. Chadwick, a gifted and earnest liberà!

But the majority of ('hrlauasa bore to long regarded the resurrection of Jeans u tbe exclusive ground for such s hope that a long acd weary time must necmsarily elapse before the force of other argument«cod be apparente- Nor Is this ill. In order to Inert«*# the rettene* of mankind upon the.rwurrecuoo of Jeaua as tbe pledge of personal Immortality, the Church hi* studkmaiy and pendfteuuy depreciated the vaino of all other arguments.....the eon of s Unitarian minister, himself one of the noblest of our younger men, told me not long ago that reading carefully his father*» book» and manuscripts he was astonished to find that the total»tree» or hla argument T O on the despair of any knowledge of God h r Immortality without the B3 bte revelation. If a Unitarian minister, of date so recent, esteemed hr hto contemporaries one of the (Dost spiritual of liriraect, ooulft thus disparage every nolani argument, the overage tone of Christian thought «down tbe cantari«is not difficult to imagine. \ In view of these oooatderatlootlt may well be that tbe deep lr of Immortality whlciaha* of late settled upon *o many mlsite, la not a etetewf mind that wtu penm for any length of time. It only marki the violence or the reaction from the Unsubstantial pageant of the popular creed; this anitre inability to at once economize * field ot argument which has»long teen «yetenulucally disdained or disregarded. The reearrectlijn of Jean* may be a legend, or It may be a natami occurrence, far there are those living to-day who know that their friends have arisen. Bat how painfully true la the statement of Mr. Chadwick, that the Church has sthdloualy depreciated the vaine of all other arguments." The church does not give man faith In his own soni or In hi* healthful senses, only faith la a book which they ciato as infallible, but cannot prove the claim. In this transition stage of thought, we want **to economi» a field of argument," and gala facts aa well o* argument to emphasise \ n d put on sure foundations tbe trutfi of personal Immortality. Here let us say that we think such Spiritualists as base their (kith solely on phenomena, and Ignore the" voice within," ara bat shallow and a l ternai la their thinking.

The accounts of great battles will always have an Interest few other themes possess. Bright nnd glowing things, terrible and ghastly ones, belong to a battlefield. The enormous coa cent ration of power la the moling masses,the pitiful weakness of the wounded, the tlaah and the sraoke, the triumph and the death, human passions, hopes and fears, raptures and tortures, are all represented by great battles. It to these that make up the fascination belonging to tho memory or the description of a battle. Yet we see only a part of the picture. Bo many killed, so many wounded, a great cause won or Lost, helped or retarded, those are ull that remain In our thought when the smoke of battle has cleared away, when the thunder of the cannon has^eosed, the ehot-torn flags have boon furled, &hd the llfo, the glory, the furore of the deligfitvof conflict hare passed away. Yet for long years after, from Bhat tered hearts that stood not In range of bul let or bayonet, will go up a wall of agony; desolation will brood around crushed homes that were far away from the battle field. No one can tell where the effect of a great battle may reach, or where Its Influence shall ceaf^. All this to true, too,of those battles of opinion through the ages. Not nnseidom has the conflict of Ideas been transferred to the field of perainni combat.^ It Is not hard, perhaps, to trace how the conflict began; not djfflcpu to find record of the Incidents of the campaign, but we must wait long before alt the results of the contest can be-^athered up. Tho shock of the battle we know; we cqn tell how tho forces wavered or rallied, the victory or defeat to perceived; but wo-do not know all the wounded, nor all that are saved; we cannot toll of the myriad live«of those, seemingly not In the flghi, which have been modified, or wholly changed ny two schools of thought coming lato collision, and tho ran- qulshment of one of^jhem.

The Ro#fen llerald' talks plain tod stroug about a late sermon by the Park SLreel preacher under lire heading quoted above. It says: The Perk Street Congregational Church, oi It I* known in eecto-lasilcnl circle*, or BrimstoneCorner, me It Is spoken of Iij the unconverted, has recently published n written entitled Some Permanent Truth,* which was delivered by the pastor, Pr. J, L. Withrow, oir the occasion of Its seventy-fifth odd I venon, nod deeerm some notice. Pr. Withrow la the leader of the men In hls denmnlnnllgn hereabouts, who atnum* theiuselrra eml the religious public by striking at windmills, intrenched In their secure CalvinIvu, they are as ronfm/mt or theirposluoa as Uie people tarn In liostoii wh«do not feel the necessity of being born again. They stand looking backward and think (hey vire looking forward, nn>l are»mazed because men do not accept their leadership. There Is something ludicrous lu the position and In the seemingly sober earnestness omhora who have declared their adhesloh to IL I'iitJ«Street Church was,uot started originally to ptesentthe whole gospel, but, In Hr. Withrow s words, to * build together certain great truths of the Bible and the Christian system, and thus give the church a creed which should be as»acred as Ihe memory of the Just aud as enduring In Its'Integrity as Ha doctrines are unchangeable In their truth fulness. This (selected gospel he again stowks of os these dearly bought and much beloved belter«. In nnolhst place, he says that the Puritan fathers * were not so, ranch concerned to include all religious truth In their creed os to exalt and emphasize certain leading doctrines of grace which were at that time ei *need to great despite and dishonor. In neither cruel nor covenant aid they name regeneration, sanctification, repentance, prayer. the resurrection,or the Dual Judgment. They put their stress upon the liability to future punishment. This explains why, md bow Jmtly, the church got the name of Brimstone Coiner.' It was built an eulpluir, not on 1 he full truth which Jesus taught. I*r. Withrow soma years ago recast I hls creed, making the Bible the only infallible rale of (sithand/ practice,1putting In the resurrection and the final Judgment, hiding his doctrine of damnation under tho cloak of Scriptu rtf phrase«; hut In this sermon, which U chiefly remarkable for lie reading of the signs of the Urnra backward, he throws aside the veil and'reveals enough sulphur stored away In the sccre- sfastlcal t h IU of" Brimstone Comer1 to damn the whole world. If taken lu urge done«, or, If gtvon In homeopathic pllla, to be something more than a mild cathartic. Hr. Withrow deserves to be called a follower of Don ( ulxote, nod to be pronounced a striker at windmills, When he soberly urges that ttmh a narrow creed as he Is tied up to, one in which Calvinism Inspires both thought and action, Is a fair rep-, mesa tattoo of Christianity or deserves the attention of LnteJHgnl American Christiana, * #. The Intelligence of tho CongregatlouiiUst body to-daj I* almost entirely It) one direction. Tbe leading men are like chickens that have Just broken thetr slietla They do not any longer propose to hug th d r Isolation from the rest of Christendom and rail It superiority. The attempt to hold up Calvinism at the present day, or to main lain n religion which makss eln the centre of Christianity, la a solemn ro- cleetssucal fart», If Is too ridiculous to be esrloualy entertained,.religion Is from above, and reaches through the Christ Into nun's Ilfs. It does not find Its chief cause In the alienation nf men from Gad, although the restoration of m u to God Is a large factor In the work of Christianity. When Dr, Withrow suggest» that hls brethren or* contradicting tho fundamental truths nf evangelical religion because they do not stand with him, or that they tak* money for deceiving the people In their religions bellefe.be need* to be reminded that, on hls own confession, Ua creed'is no bearer to a statement of the whole truth about Christianity than theirs may 1» and that he la not In a position to impute unworthy motives to hls brethren. If Us eves and the eyes of those who agree with him could only be restored from tbe back part of Us head to tbe place where they naturally belong, hs might no longer see men Os trees walking.

He argued that the relations of the two worlds were very close, and that nil reform* In Urn past bad originated In spiritual realms, and that men, active [n all ages lu the line or progrens, had been Impelled to action by direct spirit Influence; that ell events In Ilfs were largely shaped by thsee unseen powers and Intel llgenwa..11«argued that old creed* and form» of faith must give waj to a natural religion hosed upon human rwuoo, man s Intuitions aud the direct Influence* that nrisever coming, from the Spirit-world; that these Influence* from the Spirit-world have been of vast good to Individual«ami the race; that orthodoxy can not satisfy the demand* of the human soul He urged bright New Italy" of the Western world; aud more particularly' am I dreaming of Berkeley, the Athens of California, for there U my borne.

This town has many natural advantages, and at this season of the year Is a very Kden or beauty. The early spring has passed, that Uuw when nature calls out her forces from their winter sltep, making one glad refrain of bud- iliijg, "prlii,ring, Pe.uily, wlieuvln'.ilr I* fragnipt with renewed fife, and the bloom that foretells the fall fruitage!

In make the continuity, must loin tho last and future, llow small the point In time, yet Low pregnant with powimhuiw. What though we wander, lone and sad, through tbl* earthly pilgrimage, not knowing the why! Do you not know that in the great tieyond, where the law of life Is love, that under the while light of truth we shall look Lack over Lbw*> weary Jlvse and read the manning clwtr? Even though bur upward,^ path has tel through tangled, winding ways of human bittern*», over the steel«of human progress, and «cross barren, loveless dreeris of human endurance, In that clearer light of the soul we shall»ee that no «xj»ri- enc«his been to vain; be life a failure In lie mission, and no soul stranded in It* struggles In overcoming material conditions. Then, too, a* now, nur retrospect will picture the good and lire beautiful lu the past, while tbe lasohs learned will he the soul s wealth In garnered wisdom; the discipline required to bring those leesoos lo ui will fade Into dreams, end the good which ts eternal will be onra forever. This tnu'l be true else there Is an Infinite evil. If good does-pot finally come to etery Individualized soul,then good la Die lesser power, and evil supreme; that cannot be, for only In good Is found the key to harmony.

A Dtieription o f the Venial Froceteof Healin g -B o w Wonderful.C*r«s Claimed for fae Method in Hoiton Hutory of the 8ye- tem and the Manner oj He Practice. (Boston Dalit Journal The "mind-cure " la called by people outside of New England a Boston craze; nooilier city ha» developed the system to each an extent as Boston. and probably In no other place are there so many disciples of mental healing.- Four recognized heads of a«many different schools reside In this vicinity, while dozeoh of practitioner» of more or leas»kill, and hundreds of followers swell the list of believers. A system of healing, claiming so many adherents, and recognized so largely by many eminent men, deserves at least to Be better understood than it 19 at present by the large majority of people. The system la a difficult one,to explain. Even those who have»ladled it lougest admit that they do not comprehend its full force, and are unable to describe the exact method of the healing process. The process Is essentially a spiritual work. It Is held that there la p part of ns that 1» never sick, and this part Is mentally worked upon so as to-control the. sick person's consciousness, and this destroys the sickness, for Mmind cores flatter." A disciple oil this school Ih sick no, he Is not sick, for that Is something which he will not. admit; he hoe a belief that he Isalck; he then says mentally to the rebellious body, **What are y6u? You have no power over me; you are merely1, the covering given to me for present purpose?: tt Is an error to suppose that I am alck; I recognize the great truth that I myself, my individuality. my pereouallty, my mind, cannot be sick, for It In immortal, made In the Imageoitiod, and when I recognize the existence of that truth there Is no room left for the existence of error; It Is unequivocally proved that two (things cannot occupy one and the same place; error canoot exist to the earns place with truth, therefore error fs not J n existence, and I am therefore not sick." And the mind, thus utterly Ignoring the ex * ' * «, keep«matt Is leu co of error, of slckhess, > a state of health. It Is hot similar to Will :e«pe matter tn Jm tlar to will power, for will power admits the existence of sickness, but drives It away by the superior fore«of the will, while the mind core denies the existence of sickness, and Instead of con-, q tiering merely Ignores It entirely. It 1» not similar to faith care, for faith relies on the action of an outside jxhver, the God-power, while the mind cure relies entirely on the power, or more properly speaking healthful- new, of the Individual's own mind. Uany and remarkable cures are said to have been performed by this mental healing process. The practitioners themselves say little about them; they are reticent to an unusual degree on this matter except when talking to their own followers, and declare that they do not wish to advertise* re doctrine in any way. Their patient«, however, tell marvelous»tori«. One young girl, for Instance, bad b«n- sick for twelve years, unable to lgh*«nier room; a lady mind practitioner treated the girl, and in a short time she was able to go out, and now Is apparently In the best of health. Another lady, who la only a student In the doctrine, nude red for years with the severest rheumatism. She became convinced of the truth that mind roles matter, and declaring to herself, " 1 hare no rheumatism; I have only believed that I had rheumatlem; bow can 1, my Immortal self, be 111, that is, be in errort I am not sick, «ovlneed herself that she did not have rheumatism, and dace than baa not suffered the least. This eque, like ninny others, is one in which there In no motive fur lulliug anything except the truth, as the self-curer in hot engaged in the practice of mental healing, and is moreover a lady highly esteemed in the social circle where she uioveh, At ijulncy Market are u number of markelmen who willingly testify os to the results of this treatment, one man said: " I suffered for weeks with the most acute rheumatism, and any one who has bad that'knows how painful It Is; 1 put myself uuder the mind doctor's treatment and be cured mo completely. The cure«are not confined to such light cases as transitory pains, but are claimed fo effect contagious and hereditary diseases as well, In fact every kind of 111 to which mortal man is susceptible. One patient hod a limb so diseased that! t had turned black; three doctors were consulted and decided that it must be cut off. but a mind doctor held otherwise, aud after a longer treatment than it-oiil; for the rane wax severe, brought the JUnb back to its perfect condition. In Chaflea- town resides a gentleman whose eyes were covered with cataracts, and who had been told by on.e of the most eminent eye doctors of this city that he would be blind, that nothing could help him. The patient went to a mind doctor at that time being so blind that he could Dot-~c iid,l}i -'stjins on the streets through which he paused end In a 'ew weeks both cataracts had disappeared. Auother lady in Medford, after a treatment of 123 sittings, was relieved of au even worse blindness; tlie cataracts gradually disappeared, and lire returned to the eye. Cases or diphtheria, ulceration of tlie brain, cancer, asthma. Indigestion, congestion of Mie brain, fover^ were curdi by the influence of tile mind. In many of these canee the patient bad been given up by the doctors of the regular school; in fact.'if was a common saying of Dr. Quirnhy, the founder of the mind school, that people would send for him nod the undertaker at the same time, and the one who got there first would hare the case. The method of treatmerit Is a simple one and likely to try the faith of the patient to the utmost. It consista in silling qnlet and doing nothing. The practitioner faces thp person who believes himself el«,'for about half an hour, silently communing In his own mind the same as he would dola caso he himself was supposed to be ill, or else explaining to thtr patient what the truth really is tn regard to disease. This is all that Is necessary. Sometimes a harmless, outward application is made, merely to give the patientconfldence, since tue test of belief l.i hard when nothing Is apparently done, but tills has no bearing upon the method of enring. in Boston there are four schools of this»y»- tem.nnd all of ihwe hold as their fundamental Idea that disease does not come from God, and that he has mqhlug to do with Its perpetuation, but that It la one of the errors of man which can he cured by truth; the application of this truth Is not by faith, but by an Intelligent understanding. The schools, however, disagree in regard to later developments, some claiming to be farther advanced thau the others. Of the few heads of these schools one, Dr. Evans, now residing In East Salisbury, Is a venerable gentleman of GO odd rear i of age, who was formerly a clergyman for twenty five years, before he visited Dr Qnlmby as a patient tweiity-ooe year» ego, and foliow'ng which he left -preaching and practiced healing the alck, employing rub- blnffand manipulating os a part of his system. Another leader and head of a school la Mrs. Eddy, who reside«on Columbus avenue, and who was a patient with Qnlmby twenty- two yearn ago. Her assumed title Is Christian Scientist," and her followers bear the same name. A third le Dr. E. J. Arens, residing at Union Park, who practice«and teaches under the name of ' metaphysician.' The fourth leader Is Dr. J. A. Dresser, residing on Columbus avenue, a pupil or Dr. Qulmby, who follow» out his teacher's system, pure and simple. Besides these four practitioners there are about a dozen other», who practice the 'mind cure as a profession, and who-teach to classes of yonng and old the methods of curing. Generally, free instruction Is given once a week to alt who wilt come- Among fools who have attended these lectures are many Boetonlans, who, though decidedly averne to having the fact publicly known, for fear of ridicule, yet are Imbued with, faith some with a little, some with a great deal In the truth of the system, and who often practice at their homes on the husband, father or son who bappepa to believe that be is afflicted with a headache, toothache or «ore finger. And they claim Bucce Su curing. Ab an lllu»tratlon of thè ground covered In this instruction given to educate tbs mind up tq a position where It can grasp the Idea of troth, a* conceived by the mtad-curers, the following questiona, asked with masyothera, of the scholars at a recent lecture will serve well: 1. What le Being?, & What la metaphysics? 3. What La science r i. Ia **whatever la right? L. What is the accept«! vie w of '* what la"? 6. Is wrong an entity?»?. What la a concept? 8. Are right an^ wrong inseparable eon- (T of mind ilnd practl an: "The credit of Iti discovery and edentlfle development In mod era times i due to Dr. P, P. Qaimby. native of Belfast, Halo*, who practiced hie ayatem for the cure of Uta alck for many yean In Maine, and waa located In Portland from t8w to lvw. Dr. Qnlmby was n man sonii-what peculiar in bin muk*> up. With u ml rid of largo romprehen»iou. he >ia«i a wonderful power of conceniratian of.thought, and he was so extremely practical and mathematical in hit mode of reasoning, that it vfa» with difficulty thdt he could entertain an opinion, or any proposition that wai hot fully demon-»trated by proof. Such a mind, being of an Inquiring nature, would certainly find out the truth of thing» If It were possible, before entertaining n mere belief. I witnessed many of Dr. Qnlmby'» cures, of auclr caw» as paralysis, cancer», tumors, con sumption, rheumatism, ncrvoua disorders and other minor complaint». Upon opening a cto-set door in the doctor's rooms, at one time 1»aw an armful of crutches and cane«that bod been left there by.people who had como to the dobtor In various crippled condition», and had gone away without the need of the««support». It wo«viewed as a most»peaking eight. Dr. Dresser was asked to explain the theory of Ms process, **Perhaps,»aid he. **I can tell you better by,means of an illustration. Only the other day I saw In tlie Joum alan aeeonnt of a man in Nashville, Tenn.. who was accidently hurled toward a circular»aw. The saw was hi motion, andthe fear of being thrown npon it ho affected bls mind that wh-u he fell he was dead. Vet he fell several feet distant from the»aw. and when picked up had not a single»cratch on bis body. Now,. If the mind can kill, wbv can it not cure? You yourself hate heard of people sick in bed, who, affrighted by the house cafehing Are, or by some sudden cry of alarm, have risen from that bed. where they were supposed to be lying helpless, and hastened oat to a place of Safety. The mind cured matter." "And you bold that the system can be taught to others. Doctor? "Certainly. The mind can be educated to realize this truth of lla superiority, and the more thoroughly it realize«this truth the atronger Its power," A lady practitioner of IV.i city, who, though not at the head of any particular school, yet has won considerable attention from her almost miracmons cores, tell» In these words her history In developing the mind: " l was jmbjeet to cold» from my childhood up, she»aid, " but finally I realized that I was made in the Image ana likeness of God; God Is spirit, and man, his Image, Is. therefore,spiritual and not material; this mortal body of mine had no power tobe III, for matter cannot know pleasure or pain; when I supposed I had a cold it was merely an m o r of the mint in n I lowing a belter of power in matter. Bo l held myself entirely aloof, from any belief of having a cold just as you sometimes, listening to magniilc-nt music, become so wrapped up in It that you forget your whole bodily eilot- enee, and when touched by a friend are suddenly and rudely called bark to earth os If from another atmosphere. I oaid: I have no cold: and since then I/have never had a cold, excepting two or three thne when, t rough sympathy with another, my mind allowed the Idea of cold to penetrate it," " And yon find the satire power of curing others as you did of curing yourself?" Yes-. I will tell you an instance. My little boy had broken bis leg. and after it was set 1 relieved him, by the mental process, from all pain so that he did not suffer at all." Did you keep him from pain while it was being set? That I did not try. We gave him ether. I could have relieved him if Ihad been anyone except hie mother, but frar would take pos- eesslozi of my mind at nueh a time and then I could, of course, do nothing. At another time I remember the little boy awoke In the middle of tdf night suffering terribly from the colic and hacking in an awful way. Under ordinary rircnmstancea one would be grestlywlarmed, but I quieted all fear and cured him so that in an hour he w*s fast asleep. No one In the house knew by his appearance the next morning that he had been sick." "There ia no difference, you Bay, In treating any dhwkne? They nre all alike due to fear. It la fear that kills. The great demand for all the«e quack medicine» comes largely from people who read tt e descriptions of the disease symptom-s and then imagine they can detect the symptoms In theouefves. I read recently the statement of an eminent English nhysf clan who «poke of the large number of spe- Mied; " Frankly, I do not know. That there draws the veil from the Holy of Holies of the» something in it cannot b*- doubted,* hut»»id system, and u>v«>his the»uerrd place us a dalle 1«who die by the very disease which Is their special study; this fact, be held, was doe to their»tudying and brooding upon the symptom» so much." *, " What, theu, «trf you sty of death? W"by should not a man live forever? Why should be die?" " Hb do«not die. His mind, his self, cannot dtb, just as it cannot be 111. Death 1» merely the easting aside of the material «hell, which baa aervaa Its purpose. We throw H away joet as we would an old1suit of clothes for which we hare no further use. Tbs life continue«, and that which can live, livqe. This question of mind ovsr matter has attracted the attention of many eminent scholar» oi Boston, prominent among the npmber being those clergymen whomre broad minded enough to look Into a system which though they may feel cannot be accepted by them in Tt«entirety yet borders npon ther-tog.eaf E and so closely that It ought not to be care- ly ignored- Bev. Dr. Bariol's opinion has been freely given la reesot eermooi devoted to the «abject, fiev. 0. P- Gifford is equally candid in stating bis opinion. Is a conversation last night. Rev. Mr. Gifford when «eked what there really was is the system, rs- Isughter say», her mother started no, ng»he would go to church. Thedaugh- I her it was absurd, she could not reach what that something is remain» to be, devel oped. " I believe you have studied into the eys- tetn. Mr. Giffordr *' Yes, some; aud I have seen a number of my friend» apparently cured of such III» a» catarrh and headache, by It» application. Such result» cannot b«lightly brushed aside. The method of curing seems to be like the use of will power. I know they deny that It is will power, bat still it seeius akin to it. Doubtless you have heard of many case* where a strong will has exerted Its Influence. Dr. Parker, for Instance, had such will power over bis wife that he could call her tint or ten mile». One time he preached at a church iu Washington ; It was raining that day. so his wife decided not to go with him. After the doctor had reached the church,oome five mil««away, he found a relative there whom he knew his wife would like to see. 8o he sat down and willed her to come. At that same time, so his daughter «ays, her mother etarted n declarlu ter told the church until service yras over, but th lady persisted lu going! and reached the church just In time to meet her relative a» they all were coming out. Then I know of a gentleman who (msseesw the will power to make his wife sit In a chair, Incapable of rising, or make her stand, Incapable of Hitting. The mind care se«m» to have some relation to this power. " But the mental practitioners hold tliat their cure He» )u believing that the Illness doe» not exitu." " Ten, 1 know they say that strychnine, for Instance, kills, because we believe D will kill. If it is taken-unknowingly and kills, then they say that Is because the strychnine holds lu itself ttrts long establi»hfd belief of death dealing properties, a belief which comes from It» former results. But, what about the (im time It was taken; It could not then hare pos- Dewwd any established belief, for Its qualities were not known; If It 1» not death dealing in Jtself, how did that belief ever become e»tab- lished? If we went back to the Supreme Giver of all this power and effect, then perhaps the truth might be approached. In another case, when s boy is playing br working in a field and suddenly become«stricken with severe headache from the effects of the»tin's rays, bow did he acquire that headache, acy cording to their theory. Inasmuch os be had. no belief of a headache, and perhaps never' b e f o re knew from experience what a headach< was F* "They would say, hnwaxer, that thi? we.«all an error of the mindfuist the material body had not power to feel the painful sytria tion«-" " I know they hold that matter has no-sen-' nation. Well, tt ha» none in Itself o» mere lifeless matter; but when vitalized Into the fchape of a dog, a horse or a g u n then it does have sensation. 1»trlki* thl«chair, und the chair certainly doe» not feel-the blow, put doe» not my habd feel It?" " Thl» new theory is certainly attracting considerable attention, and appears to bare given sotmt. benefits at least. It Is a great mystery. Their philosophy 1» a mixture in Itself; a part of It is good and a part of U is unlutelligltile. SonyHirtfte practitioners acknowledge a God; oqtprs are»aid to corse and»wear, and-ye* seem to keen on curing. As to the whole question, I know that some ministers are mortally embittered against it; they would rather seethe! r friend«die than subject them to this system. I do not feel that way.

It has been and still Is the' habit of people to believe or profee«to believe thus and so because some divine teacher has said so or requires it some Christ or holy prophet commissioned of God to lead men in the way of salvation. The consistency of the doctrines taught, or their adaptability to the need» of moaklndrmust not be taken Into the account, only the status of the author, if a prophet said the world was created and clothed with all manner of vegetation and peopled with all the various orders of living things, in six litoral days; that a woman was made from the rib of a man; that the ran and moon actually stood still at the'command of a prophet, and that the watts of a city fell at the sound of a ram's lion], those statement» most not be questioned, because made on the authority of a prophet 4f God, and of a- book revered *» God s book.

Mankind have plodded on. bampervd by this sort of mental and religious siavefy, until the spirit of the present intellectual age has uttered a protest against this sort of servitude; and the dry bone«are shaking premonitory of a complete resurrection of mind into a freer world of life and thought.

II would hardly bo possible to put in Ian* guage a better statement of the benefits already beginning to be «allied in the new South benefits nailed and helped in fraternal spirit by the North. In the support of slavery all sections of our country had their «hare of guilt and blindness, and all can now join In repentance and reconciliation. In the ttp building of right and freedom. Wisdom la Justified of her children," and the good which we begin to realize from the downfall of chattel-slavery shows that the abolitionists were right and wise. That downfall to«by a terrible civil confli.because tite*. people - paid no timely heed to the noble company of men and women whom Garrison fitly called "the winnowing of the nation." These few glimpses of the early stages of the anil-slavery movement, uro all that chn be given. It Is mainly of Garrison as b bi- loved friend that 1 would apeak. His remarkable history, from tpelng mohbed In Bcntour imprisoned lu Baltimore jail, and called by all manner of evil names, to walking dally. In the very streets where the mob sought his life, as an honored citizen, and being seen and heard everywhere with marked respect and reverence, is written elsewhere. 1 met him first at the Northampton Association, and his buoyant happiness surprised and delighted me. He had the heroic cheerfulness that CO111US-from unwavering faith in the couqner- ing power ol truth, and from tlevptedness to a high purpose. Good health, a happy temperament. and a well-ordered home, full of sympathy and affection, helped this unfailing joy of the spirit, which grew brighter amidst trial and abuse, and became a flame of heroism lu hours of danger. The play of a fine humor, the brightness of a sunny heart, and the strength of a great soul, gave varied Interest to bis conversation. He used to apeak uf owing much to fils mother, who was turned out of doofs by her Episcopalian parents In New Brunswick, because she Jollied the unpopular BaplUt Chnrch, In obedience to- her own convictions. To know that anything was right was to be sure of its triumph In Jit time, and to be ready to endorse It. To fiu'd an error, no matter how sacredly revered, was to know that U must die, and to bear testimony against It, at whatever cost. All this was without empty boast or vain scoff, but with eelf-polsed assurance, taking no council of *' the fear of man which bringeth a snare." Orthodox in bis views from early education, he paid less heed to creeds and more to deeds as years went on. The wicked use which the clerical upholders of slavery made of the Bible, as the bulwark of that "sum of all villainies" as John Wesley Oily catted thesis ve- eystom led him to study It more carefully, and to use with great power Us truly inspired utterances In favor of freedom. Many times I have heard him read: "Cry aloud and spare not, rebuke my people for their transgressions and the house of Jacob for their sins," and other like warnings of the Old Testament prophets, and the New Testament words: I am come to preach deliverance to the captive, and the opening of tho F irlaon to them that are in bonds," in a most mpreoslve and beautiful manner. It was worth going miles to hear his Bible readings, yet the book was not Infallible to him. Ho said that bis new and rational views gave mors force and meaning to its nobler parts and made it of more value. His moral power with an andience was groat. Hi old FatienU Hull, lu the presence of three thousand people^ I once heard him read a resolution severely condemning an eminent State official for acme pro-slavery act. This mm was popular, a good tuan In many rwpecta, hot tacked fidelity and courage for the crisis. The hall rang with outcries and hisses. Garrison meanwhile standing with folded arms, erect, resolute, quietly waiting hie time. At last he was able to say: "Hear my reasons. The.tumult quieted, and for an. boar bis wordb were like cannon balls heated at soma glowing fnrnace. In closing, hesald: If any one questions my statements, let him speak, and he ehall have fair hearing. All waa quiet as the grave while be waited, standing like a strong tower, and his final word rang out In the «Hence: "My charge 1b true; no man dare deny It," There were able men In that audience, ready in speech, and who were In sympathy with the person denounced. But for the ablest to take up that quarrel would have been as though some rash knave, without horse or armor, had entered the lists against Richard the Hon hearted, on bis war horse, clad In steel and armed with spear and sword. Tho blows of the sword of the uplrlt are more resist I eds-and terrible than the sweeping strokes of king Richard's trenchant weapon. Emerson well said: " Eloquence is cheap In anti-slavery meetings." This visa true, forlhe theme was an inspiration; but in every meeting where Garrison waa present bis word was wanted to give completeness to the work. An early apprentice in a printing office, type-setting was always an enjoyment to him, end he was a rbpid and correct printer. I have seen him.set up Ills editorials without manuscript, as he often did. Ills home in Boston was in Dix Place, nedr Washington Street, Its rear windows looking out on Hollis Street Church, where John Tierponl preached.,, It was a hospitable home, and the pleasant days there are well remembered. He was very thoughtful of the comfort of others, and hts wife equally bo. In that household, so full of cheer and of simple and genuine kindness, one would not dream of the storm of abuse without, of the $G,000 reward of the State of Georgia, for the person of the happy husband, or of tho mobs howling at hie heels In the streets, bat a few years before. It was a clean homo, simply furnished and beautifully wall ordered. There was no taint of wine«or tobacco In its air, and a fine sense of moral purity, pervaded Us sacred precincts. The children.four sons and a daughter, were fuu of life, and their buoyant spirits were never crushed.bnt they were admirably trained and dutifully obedient. While of necessity, the great work of bis life waa for the abolition or elavery. he waa not Of narrow mind. His delightful home talk showed healthy and wide interest, and enthusiasm for freedom of thought, the equality of woman', non-resistance and temperance, and his early public Advocacy of these and like reforms is well-known. In later years, since the abolition of slavery, his home was in Roxbury a part of Boston the house high up on a pile of granite rocks, with the wild pines rooted in their crevices, yet the street ears not far away. There I made several visits, and had hours of Inspiring talk. His wife was an invalid In her room, his own health uncertain, but his mind as clear, and his spirit as noble and sweet as aver. We talked ranch of Bplrltuol- Im d, wlrich he bad believed tor more than ' K ^ S K d to bis faith, knowledge, and that faith became, as an Intimate friend told me, absolutely unshakable, ' and was o 'or brother«living secluded from tho world source of great light end peace to him. Many incidents of Ids experience be gave me; one of them, as he told It to me, may Interest many persons. Henry C. Wright, Ills old and valued friend and co-worker, had phased suddenly away, and Wendell Phillips and himself were made executors of his will. His body was put In a vault at Pawtucket, awaiting a permanent burial, and several offers came from friends who wished to erect monuments In Mount Auburn and elsewhere. These were not accepted, as Mr. Wright was known to be averse to any funeral display. Mr. Phillips had said to Garrison; " Bo oh you please, and I shall be satisfied." One day ho visited a medlnm near Boston, with ns thought of Henry C. Wright in his mind, but with a hope that another friend might bo heard from. A spoken message came through the medium, purporting to be from Mr, Wright, and Garrison was told he would aoiik be sick and would go to Providence for medical aid. He was naked to vhlt the cemetery of that city, to buy a certain lot carefully described. mid bury tho body there. He was 111 soon after, and went to Providence as foretold. There ho saw another medium, n stranger, and n message was uttered, purporting to be again from his old friend, describing the lot, the trees and scenery about It, and n single tree on its border exactly as the other medium had done, aud he^was again urged to buy the lot un1 hasten the burial. He went to the cemetery, found n young man la the office. and asked to be shown the corner tnorth- east,i think) where this lot had been described. They went out to the place, and no such scenery or lot was there, llo wept away thinking It all a strange mistake, and gave it up, yet was not easy 1u mind, *A few days after he went again, found lhe Superintendent; ogked If any small vacant lot for a single grave was for sale, and waa told there was none. He then asked to see the north-east part of the grounds,, and. as they started, policed that they tootna different direction from that of hla former search. As they reached near the borders of the grounds, he began to recognize the scenery, soon saw the very tree, ah described by both mediums, and just then the Superintendent said: I had forgotten. There Is n single lot for sale under that tree. Tho lot waa exactly as described; the former guide had taken a wrong path, the Superintendent's correct guidance led to tho right snot, thp medium'«words wore Verified, the lot bought, and the mortal remains of the veteran reformer rest there. Peace to III«dusl, and joy to his arisen spirit! In many minds religion is associated with conformity to popular outward standard«with belief in on Infallible Bible, a holy Sabbath, a church creed and the word of it«ordained teacher«. These are held as Its bulwarks, to weaken them Imperils It; to destroy them would be Its ruin. Ho who conform«is religions. He who does not -in Irreligious. Garrison was a non-conform 1st, yet one of the most truly religious men. He had knowledge and Insight of spiritual realities, rational faith, natural reverence, noble inspiration, n daily life, beanllful and heroic, a transition to the higher life, sweet and peaceful.

Whit are the random ratal principle«ot Theaaophj, or more partlculvrty. wherein lies ihe greatest point of dlltrrence between It and hptrituallsmr-jociuiil Btra- wnnieh. Jr From the Inception of the Theoaophic movement under Ihe leadership of Madame Blavat- sky, some ten years ago, tt baa been brought in opposition, more or less, with modern Spiritualism; and at present, through the publication of Mr. A, P. Blnnett s works aud the progressive and aggressive nature of the Tbeoeophlcal brotherhood In India, the field of Spiritualism Is being intruded upon, and its fundamental principles antagonized by the later school of philosophy. In view of the inevitable conflict between the twb, It is well that the Spiritualists be informed of the precise nature of the principle«of their antagonists, and tho vast differences.imminent In the two philosophical ay stems respectively. A brief outline ot this is the object of this paper. Owing to the ever-shifting andveon- dlctlng character of the Theoeophlcal doctrines, It ha«been no easy task to formulate them and point out accurately their specific variances from those of Spiritualism. At least four different expressions of Theoeophic doctrine, each In contradiction to the othiiv have been given to the world by Madame Blavatsky and Col.Oloott. Soon after their first meeting at the Kddys* home In Chittenden. Vt they published the first edition of their peculiar theories. In a year or two, the second edition, widely differing from the first, appeared. In Isis (Jn eilm we have the third, largely discrepant from the other two, while In Mr. Sin nett s two books and lathe articles of Blavatsky and others In the Thoosophist. the organ of the Society, now published In Madras, India, atlll another is found. This Utter (the fourth) tsso much lu contradict!po with that la f»l» Unvoted, that a new edition of that work I*announced, rewritten from the new or,fourth stand-point. In which tbe contradictions between ft and the now Theosophy will be expunged, aad hanneey be established between It and the teaching of Mr. Bin- nett and Scot Hoorn 1. MUetow cwnedthm the beelsof Theosophy in tho Himalaya Mountains. Olio of thorn, Koot Hoornl, has selected Mr. Slnnett as the exponent to tho world of the sublime troths of their philosophy, sad a summary of their touching«is found In Mr. Slnnelt's books, r iarllcalariy in Ksottrie Buddhism.

Mr. Sltmelt has never boon at- owed to see Koot Hoornl, and no positive evidence exists that any one else has over seen any of thee» mystic recluses. These adepts, Mr, Slnnett tolls'ns, are omniscient as regards mundane affairs." Their clairvoyance.furnishes them with a knowledge of everything on Hip mirth; and an udiqit cun project his soul from his body " to any place ho pleases with the rapidity of thought. From her first enunciation of Theosophle principles in America, te n, years ago, Mad. Blavatsky hips been theageutand mouthpiece of these Hiiuaikyan Brothers, wo are told; and her hook, Isis Unveiled, was written In New York by dictation of the Tlbetityr Brothers, parts of the manuscript being actually written by them through magic power while Blavatsky was asleep at night. Pertinent to this, the following queries arise: If Mml. B. studied under the Brothers «even years, in a Himalayan retreat, a«hh-erted,mid came to America as their mouthpiece,how can we account for the widely contradictory character of her four revelations? The Brothers are omniscient, and have a perfect knowledge of nil philosophic and scientific truth. If the fourth editioa be the true philosophy, whence arose the sorlous blunder«in tho three preceding editions? Especially, If "Isis f/n- rei/m " was inspired and partly Written by them, how Is it that It contains so much In contradiction of the present Koot-Hooml- Sinnelt philosophy? Fro» Mr. Sin nett s Etoteric Buddhism, the authorized exponent of the latest phase of Theosophy. I summarize Its teachings con- eornlng mankind, Hi".Spirit-world,»ml Hu: epiruunlphenameiitt. Man has seven principles; (l)tlie Body;(2) Vitality;(3)AstraI Body; (4) Animal Soul; (5) Human Soul;((1) Spiritual.Soul; (7) Spirit. The first three being altogether of Hie earth, are done with by man at death; tho other four pertain to his higher nature, lu most men the fourth Is prominent, the fifth not being yet fully developed, and Ihe sixth Is in embryo. All men pass through a series of lives on a chain of seven planetary worlds, or rather a number of series of lives on an endless chain of worlds. Through the cl)alu of seven worlds each human monad makes seven rounds, that is he live«a number of live«nn each world for seven successive times. After finishing on* round-through ul] ilhi1world-i, h" come«hack to tho first world again and gees another round all through,and so on seven times. Each world develops seven races, all of which each soul passes through, and each race has forty-nine, sub-races, through all of which man passes more than once, aggregating on an average nearly 800 lives or incarnations each soul experiences on each iror/cf, or nearly 5,000 lives In all. Between each Incarnation, each soul lives an extended period In a peculiar spiritual condition, to bo described hereafter, the shortest possible length of each period being 1,500 years, while to most souls its length is many thousands of years. It appears from this, that while mnn only Uvea m his 5,000' material bodies something less than half a million years, his duration In the spiritual state between the successive Incarnations, may run up to a hundred milllqli years; children dying In Infancy are, however,re-incarnated at once; for others, 1,500 years is the shortest possible time elapsing before re incarnation ensues. The conditions of each of man s spiritual existences between the re*incarnation aredeflti-, ed by the use that he baa mode in his noxt preceding physical existence; so that the Spirit-world is the world of effect», aud the material world the world of cause*. Man Js now making his fourth round in our chain of worlds, and od our ntenet, the earth, the fifth race-ha» been evolveotttfa white Aryan race. The true Chinese are of the lost or seventh sub-race of the fourth root race, whose highest civilization wasattained millions of years ago. The evolution of the fifth race began on earth a million years ago. The proper home of the fourth race was the lost Atlantis, which began to sink In the Miocene period, and finally disappeared only 11,000 years ago. We are told that Greek, Roman,and Egyptian civilizations were nothing compared with the civilisations that began with the third race many million years ago. Although man 1«now on his fourth planetary round, yet there are a few artificial fifth-rounders. A fourth- rounder may, by process»» of occultlo training. or by virtue of the total number of previous incarnations, convert himself Into one having nil the attributes of a fifth-rounder. I presume Mod. Blavatsky and Koot Hoornl are fifth-rounders, while Ulcott Is in training for that desideratum. At the commencement of an objective life, or re-lncarnatlon, the Karma of the previous life determines the state into which be shall be born. "Karma Is a Collective expression applied to that complicated groupof affinities for good and evil generated by a human being during life, aud the character of which inheres in the molecules of Ills fifth principle all through the Interval, which elnphcn between his death from one objective life and his birth Into the next." At death man» four higher principles recap* Into the world just above our own, the astral plane or kama loka. Man s fifth principle Is a complex entity, separable Into superior and inferior elements. Tbeslxtb and seventh principles draw the fifth In our direction, while tho fourth draws It bock earthward In the other. The best and f rarest portions cling to tha sixth, and the ower Instincta, etc., adhere to the fourth. The latter, associated with the fourth, floats off in «Orth s atmosphere, while tbe best element«, the real ego or individuality, follow the sixth and seventh into a spiritual condition called Devaehan. Devaehan ta a state rather than a -Ideality. It (»subjective, Ideal, unreal, though seemingly objective and real; It ut a state of eohmlete subjective Isolation, In which the prreomtnant Impulses and predilection of the mind are ideally enjoyed and developed, a rosy sleep,a peaceful night with dreams more vivid than day, Imperishable for many centuries"; Ut fact, Devaehan seems to be a dream-ilke existence of tbonsands of years duration, at the termination of which rebirth takes place into objective life, with loss of all recollection of Devaehan and previous Uvea. At death the soul does not pas* at once to Devaehan. After the division. In Aama loka or the fifth principle, the real ego passes Into a period of aaeonacdotu gestation, of lo ajr'or abort duration, In proportion to tbe ««o «spiritual stamina. At Its Mom it eaten Devaehan. la antfunalx to Devaehan, which la a felloi- tona condition. Is Aritehl. a state of the moot Meal spiritual wickedness, akin to that of Milton s Lucifer. Very few, however, reach this condition, the mass of mankind entering Deraclian. Tbe bulk of mankind lu kama toka and ail lu Devaehan are deprived of all objective consciousness,- os at death man s consciousness leaves him, as the (lame leaves the wick when It Ls blown out. In certain exceptional cases consciousness 1«revived )u tamo lokti, nod in this we have tho secret of much of the spiritual phenomena, which are the production o f" elementarles. " Elementarles " are of two clames. When the lower elements of the fifth principle remain behind In kama ioao,united to the fourth,»semblance of consciousness inheres therein. These floating elements are called astral "shells * or "elementarles." Coming in contact with a medium on earth, a "shell" is liable to be galvanized Into a state of consciousness and life, of a confused, bewildered character. A medium "is a person whose principles are loosely united and susceptible of being borrowed by other beings or floating principles" having an attraction for them. These "shells" assimilate part of the medium?» fifth principle, and with it In conjunction with their own fourth principle, they produce phenomena, rapping, slate-writing, etc., and give messages. The "shells" are not Immortal, and gradually fade away intq non-individuality. The "shell of a lonrnpd, unspirltnal man will IasI longer than those of weaker mentality, and the shadow of his memory helping, ho may deliver through tranco speakers creditable orations. A second class of elementarles" are these. Person«committing sul- hlde or killed suddenly are not liable td hhvc their fifth and fourth principles sepa rated. They are not shells, but are, as a whole, tho same persons lately alive, minus only the body; they are not dead at alt. "Elementarles " of this cl a««use mediums extensively. gratifying their desires and low passions vicariously through tho medium's. In addition to these, many phenomena are caused by the " elemental»/ entirely distinct from the luiuinn kingdom. Many of the greatest physical phenomena of tho stance room are occasioned by them; and by command over the " elemental»," adepta accomplish some of their greatest feats. Hesldes the inhabitants of fcamofoan above mentioned, another class is sometimes found. Persons totally devoid of spirituality, having lost their sixth principle by the time death comes, cannot enter Devaehan or remain in Aomo fojta; so they are relegated to the eighth sphere," the earth'«moon, whence they never return. It is Impossible for the soul in Devaehan to be cognizant of what Is going on on earth, so Us Inhabitants never communicate with earth. It happens rarely that clairvoyants have vi«iocs of Devaehan, but those In Do- vachan are unconscious of it. Distend of tho Devachanlc spirits coming to earth, the clairvoyant s spirit ascends towards Devaehan. In some rare cases of psychbgrapliy, the spirit of the sonslttve becoming ouyllzed by the aura of the Devachanlc spirit, become«for a few minutes that departed perdona 11 ty, nnd writes In his hand-writing nnd in his language and thought during earth-life. At the end of each of the»even rounds of planetary life, the soul passes into a higher forra of the Devachanlc life, or state of partial Nirvana, In which for periods of Incoirtbivabie duration It reata before resuming its klrcnlt of tho worlds. At Ihe end of the last round, the perfected spiritual being reaches a condition In which a full recollection of ail lives lived at any time in the past returns to d iitn. Tills state Is tho threshold of Nirvana. From It ho emerges into Nirvana, described as a snhllme state of conscious rest la omniscience." Every'Spiritualist can readily perceive the wide dissonance between these theories and the spiritual philosophy. If trne, they overthrow the resentía! principles of our beautiful faith. It behooves the Spiritualists to be prepared to meet tho encroachments of our roe. The charm of novelty will attract some from our ranks, And the intellectual vigor of its propagandists will secure ttaratieution and favor of others. Let Spiritualists consider tho many startling contrasts between Theosophy and Spiritual ism, and ponder well the reasons for the faith that is within them..theosophy tells us that this world is^he realm of causes, the Spirit-world of effects; the groat hulk of mankind at death pass into a dream- state of thousands of years'duration, in which they are totally unconscious of everything on earth, and never communicate with earth; the only completo spirits that communicate with earth are those óf «nlcide» and persons suddenly killed, who obeess mortals for selfish purposes; ^11 other spiritual phenomena nre caused by ncut*!)uman *' elementáis " and tendering- shells," ihe debris of ascended spirits in De ruchan, except in a few rare cases of delusive clairvoyance and psyehogrnphy, caused by temporary rapport with the De- vochanlc region; there la no progress in tbe Spirit-world, only protracted dreaming between nearly fl.000 different incarnations; all f irogresa pertains to the snccessive earth lirre, n each of which we develop a new karma, with which we start again at onr next rebirth. I know not what others may think of this complicated and ingenious system of philosophy given us as highest truth from omniscient sages, bat for myself I am convinced that it is destitute of foundation', n figment of the imagination, the offspring of the fertile fancy of Mad. Blavatsky, and a few oriental mystlca I bare no faith in the existence of Koot Hoornl and the other Hítflñ- Jayan Brothers. It is possible that there are some so-called adepta possessing some weird occult powers, and perhaps Mad. Blavatsky may be so endowed; but much of the assorted occultism Is charlatanism and trickery, and the greater part of the marvels narrated anent Mad.

Few, Indeed, can be found who will aot acknowledge, that wo ought, at all times, and under all'rircnnistances, to be governed by the spirit of truth, uf purity, of hollures, of Justice, fidelity aud love; and yet. lu our Inmost soul», we do know that we are not always faithful to our conviction»; but dn the presence of «elf, and under tho Influence of appetite, passion and desire, we are quite liable to swerve from the spirit of tho virtues, and thus bring upon ourselvesasense or condemnation, railing for some disguise, like tlio fig-leaf apron. Those who engage la the commission of crimes, and who live lives of criminal Jn- S ence, know better; know that they are ding every principle of justice, goodness and right livlug; aud, while they have any moral sodse, parry with themselves a con- Mfousness of guilt, which deserves reprobation, and which Is at war with the best interests of society, and which deserve pun* IshniihiL Few. indeed, engage in. vicious or crlmlrianjiritctico«of any kind, who do not know that Daso doing, they are at war with every prlucipotaswullal to the well-being and happiness of mankind, and they also know that one, who Will thus engage in that which 1» evil and. false knowingly, 1«not to ' bo trusted any further than self-interest prompts. Those who engage i/a n y kind of business which tends to demofallze the individual or society, us In Hip business of manufacturing, or selling intoxicating liquor» as a beverage, do so for tho purpose of self-gain and selfr advantage, and not for the benefit of their Individual customers, or for the benefit of society. Every intelligent and reflecting dealer know# that he ts doing more harm than good to every one who patronize«him. Ihat among his customer», very many of them are quite liable to become ruined In property, la character, in their domestic relations. in their social «tending. Of this there is no room Jeft for doubt. Evidences of such a tendency and such results are tod abundant on every hand to admit of question by the dealers themselves. Why. then, do men engage in such euterprlare? As morn), upright, good citizens, what excuse can one offer for opening o/llquor saloon in any community? What 'good to tho individual citizen, or to society can be promoted by It? What evil to the Individual and to community, can be equal to it? No morally thoughtful and religiously conscious man can engage in any sncii enterprise; and, therefore, one will not expect to find hucii characters in such business. Then. let us look to these men as n class, and ascertain the motive which prompts them, individually Aud collectively, to engage In the liquor traffic. Whateverthe motive, w&can be assured that there Is nothing of _vlrtue. of morality, ol religion, qt-pstriofisui, of humanity; of churityfimd-tfood will to mankind, entering Into it. There are some tilings which they do know in respect to the results of their traffic; aud that is, that many, very many, sober respectable nwn, will be made drunkards by it; that many happy families will bo ruined by it; that many loving and trusting hearts will ho crushed by it; that many crimes will be committed under lls Infla- ence. and much of poverty and wretchedness and woe will be gathered a» Its legitimate harvest, and that there will not he for all this one redeeming influence, one saving virtue, one foyotis blessing, conferred upon tbe individual or upon community as the legitimate fruit of snch traffic. Why. then. I inquire again, do men engage in this business? and what must be the moral and religions status of those who do engage in U? It can not be said that it is because they do not know any better, for they do know better. They do know that every drinking saloon In a community becomes a center of influence tending to poverty, vice aud crime in such community. Thev do know that ike whole business has to do with men s appetite.«and passions, stimulating to Instfal conditions and practices. There Is not a man or woman of common sense Uring, who believes that the practice of drinking, fostered and encouraged by these saloons, tends to promote order, pence, virtue and happiness in»oclety. There is no one who does not know that the legitimate tendency of all tippling Is to vice, crime, degradatlom-dlsease and death. And yet men of standing atad of influence in society engage In It; Invest their millions in It; do everything in their power to bring Individuals and community nutter Its influence, and form associations to streagthen and perpetuate their power for evil overall men. KnostHurlhese thing», why do they do it? why does community permit them to do It? * The answer ta plain. Mankind are wanting la that quality of Impulse, which demands that one shall, in au things, act np to his highest conviction» of right. They are wanting la that which comes from supreme loyalty to the true, the pure, the holy, the jubt nod good. They are lacking In va high resolve to seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness, by striving to te-come perfect in moral virtue». Mankind are in bond- age to, self, and its pleasure«and gratifications, and In its presence, the virtues go to the wall. What Is said of the liqnor traffic ts also applicable In some degree to many other occupations and professions. Mankind,in their rush after facie, woahh, power and aggrandizement. are In bdhdage to eetf-intereet, selmndnlgeoce, self-gain, and solf-gratlfle*- tlod, in some form; and, hence, habitually fall to act tip to their convictions of right. In respect to the virtues, they are saying continually, I pray thee, Lave me excused. Therefore the great need, looking to the end to be accomplished fn bringing the human soul to tiomphtenesa, to the stature of perfect manhood, Is that motive «power which will cause the Individual, at au times, to be religiously conscientious for the right, the true, pare and good; and which will canoe him earnestly, to seek to know, and strive to do, bl«whole duty as a loyal subject of the heavenly kingdom. Is man, con a tl in t tonally, tbe subject of such -a motive impulse, one which will command hie obedience according to his eodvte- lloae of duty and right, no matter how great tiis sacrifice required; even If. It b* a right hand, a right eye.*or even life lte«h? There is bnt one source from which snch an Impulse can come to command the obedience of the heart, for any other than the obedience of the affection», will not be sufficient. The obedience which Ismbeolute for the right has Its source in the suprems love of the soal, and that love mast be colled Into existence by means of faith and trust in the Absolute Good. Tbere must be to the soul that which 1«dearer to It than ita own pleasure, enjoyment, or Individual good, or It can not be made to make the sacrifice sometimes demanded. This loyalty of tbe heart matt find a supreme and perfect one, clothed with the perfect attributes of tbe affections, be- I

Hence, religiously, the only hu Met out motive impulse which can, under all circuntnlanre«, cause man to obey l»i^ convictions of right, is to be found in a supremo lovn of the perfect attributes of a supreme and perfect.being. Without faith in such ii Being, urn! without a supreme love of the character of such Being, the sou! can not be made absolutely loyal to the right, the good anti the true. Snch faith and such love, then, become the supreme need of the soul, and without which, Jt will not become entirely loyal to the eternal right, good and true. It In this need width Hes at U*< basis In man, of all Ida religious aspirations, and which Inducea In him. a desire to ascertain and to know the Infinite and tyerimi Why? How? and What? of all things A* soon as the mind of the child Is capable of perceiving any relation between cause ami effect, Jt becomes a standing interrogation point; and it commences that search which will never end, until it finds its ultimate answer in the revelation. to it, of a Father Spirit, who has given tolls spirit, a destiny which Is to be accomplished by an attainment of oneneas of Jlfe nnd character with that Father Spirit. Therefore, the religious nature in man Js that which has supreme control over the individual and which causes him to&eejt completeness iti every department Of his existence. It is that supreme nature which can not be Huthdled with anything that Is mutable and perishable. No amount of wealth, or fame, or power, or honor, or aggrandizement. can satisfy its aspirations. All sublunary pleasure*, no matter how ex rjuh'ue, fail to giveji rr-t and pence, content nnd happiness. It must know all there is to be known, it must become, iti»talus and recipiency, receptive of, and responsive to* all 'that exists and Is, In Its love, as the foutt- tain of affection. It must embrace the universal being, and thence, universal existence. Therefore, the religious nature demands that one become perfect as the Fattier ip heaven is perfect; and hence It is to the Individual the only source and fountain of that power, which can compel se f to surrender to the right, the true, the pnre and the good. Men mistake the nature of religion, and the part it performs In those who are subject to Its influence. I grant it ii the moultiou of this nature, which causes the devotee to make such terrible sacrifices of self and It»' enjoyments, ns are seen id the Pagan, Hindoo, nnd sometimes In the Christian world, so-called; that It is the religious nature which enables the Individual to rise above self and it* present enjoyments, and to submit to such sufferings as are self-inflicted by Ignorant and blinded devotees. I grant that if is under the Influence of this nature, that the Hindoo widow burns upon the funeral pile of her husband; that the Hindoo mother give» the bubo of her bosom to the crocodile, or drowns it in the Ganges; that the Hindoo devotee throws himself beneath the juggernaut, and that the thousand other forms of self-tortore and death are submitted to. The power of one to cause self to submit to these denials and afflictions, 1» from the religious nature; but that which gives such direction lo It, Is not of the religious nature. The directing agency In all these cases proceeds from the Intellectual nature, and becomes n revelation of the intellectual status. It Ih according to the dictation of the individual intelligence, that places the Hindoo.widow* upon the funeral pile of her husband, rather than to tell her to be trail inspirit, pare in heart,holy-anil self-faithful in life, if she seek to please her heavenly Father. It is the weakness and unreliability of her intellectual and rational faculties which tells the Hindoo mother to feed her babe to the crocodiles, or drown it in the sacred river, rather than to obey her maternal instincts and affections, and care for it tenderly, and brllig It up In the nurture and admonition of that which Iq true, pare, holy, Joet and good. The supreme power of the soul, misdirected, can not fail to bring ruin, misery and death. Upon the principle in physics, the greater the power wbefi directed E rpperiy, the greater the blessings conferred y It. but misdirected, Its power to destroy Is commensurate with its power to bless. The power propelling a train of cars while everything la In order and the cars keep the track, is the same power that hurls everything on board to destruction, when a broken rail or an opposing train are Interposed. AH the powers of the universe work to bless the orderly and'obedient, hut the name powers most work to curse the disorderly and disobedient. Therefore, in the religious nature Is to be round that power which, when properly dl rected. giv< i losl the spirit dominion orer self and its loam* and enables It to aay with an- premo authority to every tempting influence, "Get thee behind me, Satan/' The power of this ultimate'patnre most be Invoked by installing that nature in the soul as supreme. And that, being supreme, it mast have for counsel the pest, most Intelligent and rational adviser possible. Instead of suppressing the Intellectual and rational faculties, as ha» been the jsnstom Of the theologian, they must be cultivated with the most scrupulous exactneea.'so Ah to be qualified, under all circumstances, to act as the moral and religious engineer of the soul on its way to the kingdom. To me, such adviser and engineer la Jesus, of Nazareth, when«life and teachings reveal the union of the Intellectual, themoral and the religious, acting lu perfect a'ceprrt; bringing the son] by a straight line, directly tw completeness, and hence into the kingdom of heaven. Taking his life as an Illustration of the way leading from the earthly to the heavenly. I find both chart and compass, with every rock, shoal, sand-bar and dangerous coast; plainly marked, and the signal of danger timely given, so that the earnest seeker, the honea navigator, the faithful traveler, -can pursue his course without danger, and be sure of reaching the heavenly haven at lost, to enter upon the possession of his spiritual Canaan, and find' It a land (lowing with milk and honey. The religious unbeliever, therefore. Is not Justified in making his war upon the religions aspirations of the soul. He may make war upon the theologian, who denounce«the intellectual and rational faculties, and Is striving to bring the mind Into bondage to authority, based upon the commandment of men, but he should not be guilty of as an error, and as mischievous an one, confounding the dogmas of the theologian with -the supreme Impulse«of the soul, calling the Individual to completeness; demanding that, in all things, be become loyal to the spirit of every virtue, and with all his powers, strive to become perfect as the Father In heaven is perfect.

One ohiie great disadvantages which women labor under, In entering any avocation, is generally the want of steady drill and discipline. They are amateurish, fitful and not persistent. Yet they are no more so than men would be with, the same want of training. The success of-^hoee who have passed through regular preparation, show«that the difference is in the training and not In the character. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, la the.vi.

In what I have written for young women about farming a taste for some avocation or bqrsnit in which they attain skill, it has be^n chiefly that they might have the mean* of self-support, For life is so foil of change every one is liable to reverses, and a large percentage- of women at some period are placed in position«where tho power of self- support would be an Inmtimabie blessing.

I X A D VANC E. Summer Campaign. To all who arc «of now and After hate been flrbjicrltiprs, the«journal will be sent Twelve week«, on trial, for fifty cent». At tlie ex plrntion of the trial subscription the paper Will be stopped nn less previously renewed. The rapid Increase of Interest in Spiritualism among the educated, both Iruide mid outride the various religion» denominations, makes the need of an ansectarian,' independent, fearless, candid and hlgli-closs paper a greater dciideratf/ntuim ever before. The J ournal will tre^kept up to the highest standard possible with the faculties or the publisher and editor, and he hopes for the hearty and continuous patronage of the hotter and more Intelligent elasa of the great pablic,botb with- la and without the Spiritualist ranks. Inspiration. Shallow and narrow is the self-styled orthodox view of inspiration, limiting the gift, In Us highest sense, to a few Jews in a distant age; taking It for granted, and not to bo denied, that God spoke to man then and there through prophets and apostles, but has not Bpoken since and will not again; that all troth needed for guidance hero and for reaching heaven hereafter was there given us; that It 1» hot possible to odd " one jot or tittle to that ancient * word of God," and that the thought qf doing so Is evil, the effort blasphemy. What difference between the Hindoo Brahm brooding over Infinity but withdrawn from all work and from all intercourse with mankind, and this orthodox Deity, who will never again speak or reveal himself? No more divine truth or 'inspiration! No more angel visitants, or trances, or visions of the Ufa be- yond! for ail these were in a day of miracles, and of an open heaven of which mortals could get glimpses, and' that day has gone, never to return. Gur dim light comes from that Hebrew past; none to-day, none In any to-morrow, and that to which alone we can turn, growing fainter In the increasing distance. Where there Is no vision the people perish* No wonder that waiting souls tarn to Spiritualism. No marvel that the churches are honeycombed by donbt. Bonis must grow or die, Light, more light!" is the instinctive cry. Not merely such quantity or Ught as the words or a few Hebrews can give us, but light from Pagan or Christian; light to day; light.from the Splrlt-world; Inspiration fresh ifid dear from an ever-opeh fountain; the unity of our souls with the Soul of Things, now ab In oldea days, not by miracle bat under unfailing spiritual laws. This broader and mors vital idea of Insplr- atlou makes the Bible more and not less to us, or rather tdore in a true and rational aetue, but less In a dogmatic and belittling way. Its Teal Inspirations, its trances and visions that reason and intuition can mecept, glow with new light, because not obscured by It«errors, and then we reach oat beyond Its pages, and look within our own souls, Hading everywhere what we need. The absurd conception that the Bible la infallible truth, without mixture of error, truth mlraeplouriy given and peculiarly of anlhor- lty each as no truth has elsewhere, must fade way. The hopeless and chilling error that the day of open vision and of Inspiration as full of dlrlrio power as ever came to any Hebrew prophet, is past forever, mast also fade away. As these disappear the world will be the better. Put Bible trnth above all other, Bible inspiration alone as divine, and how much we lose. Put all truth on a level, hold all Inspiration na a world-wide gift, and we gala greatly. The old Hindoo, of the Vodlc age said; Die vulgar look for their godi In water; the Ignorant thloi they are In wood, brick or atonre; men of more extended knowledge aeek them Id ml ratio! orb»; but wise men worth!p the Universal Soul. That Alt-pervading aplrlt, which gin* light In the vialbte Min. non llie tame In A-fodam I though Infinitely distant In degree. The way. to eternal beatitude U open to blm who, without omlaalon, sprekelli troth." This 1» Inspired truth. Just as dlvln? as the words of Isiiah or J psuh, uttered centuries later. Buddha taught: Better than sovereignty, better than going to heaven, better than lordship over all worlds, 1» the reward of the first step In holiness. Let a man overcome auger with love, let him overcome evil with good, let him overcome the greedy by liberality and the liar by troth.' Surely no word of {jlble teacher Is higher than this. The wise Socrates aaid, while waiting cheerily for his la*ri hour soon t<> come: "The soul, returning Intoherarlf, relied*. Than be {xiam* into lire realm pf purity, end eternity. And ImmortaiLh, which are her (ludrrd, and with them slio ever litre when abe a by bereelf amt not let nr Voyaging to V Erdarctt. hlndetrd ; then *lre Venae* from her erring wav«, atid bring In communion with the unchanging la uuc hanging.' Here Is a clear loner-vision, an introspective right ot the soul s capacity to know the trutji when iu fit condition, all aa good, and oh really inspired, from Socrates as from Moses or Paul. Harriet Beecher Stowe says: Wby do the children of a plmi* mother, whore gram has grown green and smooth with yearn, twin often to walk Ihrougli peril* and danger* fearful ntul Imminent ns 111» crossing Mohammed* flery gulf on the edge of a drawn»word, yet walk unhurt'. Aht could we tee that glorious form, that face where the ang«] conceal* not the mother, our uurouon would bo aniwe red.", Here 1«open vision, glowing witfi'thesame celestial light which inspired the Hebrew prophetess, and just as precious from this daughter of the Puritans as from the child of some ancient Rabbi. Achsa Hprague comes through Lizzie Dot on to any; I tlvf! O yo who loved me! Your fnlih was not In vain; Hack through the shadowy valley t come to you again. Sab* in Ibelove ihat guide* me. With fearlew feel I treed - My home i* with the angels I), «ay not 1 am dead!" Not dead, U in*, but lifted A Vivo all earthly airlfe; Now find I know lire meaning And feel the power of life." Here Is the realization of Emerson in *" The Soul s Prophecy:" Angel* on the slanting ray*, Volos* from the opening aklre." Heavenly inspiration is as real in Boston as in Judea, the 111 vine Life sill).pulses In human hearts, gospels are being revealed daily. Slowly Hi«Hilda of the raca la writ Karb age, each kindred add* a vers* to It" * words Organization. There comes to this offico three papers, geographically w ide-separated, but In close, agreem ent as to th e needs of the hour. The Pacific Leader, a new S p iritu a lly paper, published at Alam eda, Cal., and edited by '. S. Ingham, has the following editorial: Could Spiritual!*!* fnllr redi re the erred Importa n» and perfect practicably of acting uj*on lire old mnxloi, "In Union there la aireogih? andtinlle lo- golbt-rlu organization* haring for their object, lire promotion ot the cauae of Sid ritual lain, by Intelligent, persistent, commendable action, Urey would be urprtwd and gtaufled at Ure remit; for. in Ire* than twelve-own Ui, la uumbereand lufluen«s ttrespir-.uali»is would lead all the other deuomlnations or the l ulled State*.

We jib not think the eplrll* drain» we should lee to the work entirely wllb th e m.,. We ooraider the great work ot orjpmbauon to b# for, flr»l the derriopmeot of the Spiritualist*, In order that they may be able to teach before Urey assume to do ao, and. aeoond, to give opportualuw for sock- era to LnveaUgate....The tlmre demand some nuloa of purpose.

" Let ua get out of town on the Fourth, away from the Intolerable Chínese fiend, the Irrepressible nmall boy, and tho mob of noise producers who, with aspiring politicians, compose the army of patriots la time of pence! " That la exactly what I would like; where shall we go?" "Our old friends Mr, and Mrs. Wm, Drury, of New Boston, have Invited us to visit their home; that I» the thing to do now." " Agreed! wo can be off at noon to-morrow." Had tho conversation of two rellglo philosophers been overheard on Thursday of lost week, the above would have been very nearly a verbatim report, " High twelve " on Independence Day, saw-tho couple heading west by south with a hundred and ninety miles to make before the aun should set and they bo landed beside Jhe " Father of Waters," whose broadycurrfent Is the congenial home of the catfisithho gambler, the raftsman nu-1 other useful living things. The Chief of the Weather Bureau had most fortunately turned'on the sprinkler tho night before, and there was no dust. The Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad runs through one of the finest sections of farming country In the world aud taps many of the liveliest mamifacltirlng towns In nearly a half-dozen States, While the J ournal folks are eating nn excellent meal lu tho dining car, the train whirls through Hlnsdulc whore Jives the good old veteran, Joel Tiffany. Aurora Is reached, Fox River crossed,and away we fly. rapidly entering the region of corn aud cattle. At Giilva, one hundred and forty tulles from Chicago, wo collide with a considerably animated section 0/ the "Glorious Fourth; the symptoms are strongly suggestive of a mixture of corn Juice and patriotism. Here we change cars, and It is In tho local train that the need of Miss Frances Willard and her Temperance Union is apparent. The cars fill up with a boisterous, hut fairly good-natured crowd, who having helped to make Galvá merchants and enbxm-keepers happy, are going home, leaving a few behind who have become Inspired with a desire for a big drunk, or in the more expressive language of the gentletexim cow* boy, are bonhd to paint the town red before morning!"

While these reflections ate passing, tho train man yells out, " Woodhulir und li> wlnit a change; In two minutes the train 1* nearly em pty. This sets us to querying: Can there be anything In a name? At each station beyond the passengers pour In, and they are a brighter and more attractive class. At last In the edge of the evening the two hundred miles less nine, are accomplished without fatigue, and wo cli&p hands with one who landed at this identical place fifty years ago, before UiU land had come Into market, before the county (Mercer) whs organized and while tho Indians still abounded. In a moment more Mrs, Drury, who for forty- four years has been a faithful helpme^and adviser of the old pioneer, greets us vkhh a hearty welcome and cheery»mile, and soon we are two miles away at Vlrdnrett. the splendid estate of Mr. and Mrs. Drury., In tills congenial horns on the Mlsalealppl bottoms, In thftjcqmpany of these earnest, philanthropic Spiritualists, surrounded with a profusión of hooka on science, philosophy and religion, the- familiar names of Davis Tuttle, King, Watson, Deaton, Stebblns.

Dr. Pozzl. in an article In the Bevuc et An thropologic tie Parti, dwells on tho third frontal convolution of the brain In man, which he says waa first definitely shown by Dr. P. Broca to he the seat of the organ of speech. This function In thirteen out of fourteen cases, Is associated with the left frontal, and In one case out of fourteen, with tho right froptai, as has been proved by the loss of the faculty of syeech known as aphasia, or more accurately, as aphetnla, which la due to lesions of that portion of the brain. It Is suggested by Dr. Poxzl, that as a recognition of the scientific importance of the discovery made by Broca, the third frontal convolution should henceforth be named after the man wbo had determined its function. Charles Dawbarn, whose able lectures and articles have appeared from time to time In the Journal, will lecture at the Lake Pleasant camp meeting.

At a Baptist mlnlfder*' meeting In Chicago lately, several of the speakers severely condemned the New Congregational creed as lacking In definiteness relative to the doc- trlui*» of tha atonement, inspiration aud probation, One speaker, the Rev.

Concerning the history of the subjoined curious narrative, the original manuscript of which, written (n now faded Ink on the rough, dingy paper of sixty years ago, wan pieced In my hands In the course of a recent visit to America, only a few words are neces^ sary. The uarratlve is addressed to "Airs. Rodgers and sister," and appears to have been written at the request of the former Judy, after author's return from sea on the termination of his services as surgeon on the President frigate, the famous ilghllug cruiser of the American republic 111 the war with England of ^812-i-L Commodore Rodgers, who commanded the President during the war, and who was the husband of the lady for whom the account was written, gave to Dr. Turk's narrative his endorsement of Its perfect accuracy. Or the authenticity of the document there can be no possibility of doubt. Some lime In the latter part of December. 1813,*' says Dr. Turk, a man by the name of William Kemble, aged about 1 (a seaman on board.of the United States frigate President, commanded by Commodore John Rodgert», on a cruise then near the western Islands, was brought to me from one of the tops. In which he waa stationed, having burst a vessel In hie lucgs, being at the time In great danger of instant death, the blood gushing in great vloleuci froiu his mouth and nostrils. Wjth much difficulty 1 succeeded in stopping the discharge, and he was put upon the use of remedies suited to his case. I visited him often, nnd bad the (wet of opportunity of becoming acquainted with his temper, habits und intnliectuni attainments, and under all circumstances, during Ills Illness, found hts language and behavior such as stamped him the rough, profane, and illiterate sailor. It is my belief, although i cannot positively assert It, that he could not either read or write, it is certain that hid, conversation never differed In the least from that of the Croat ignorant aud abandoned of his associates, constantly mixed with oaths aud the lowest vulgarity. Rad he possessed talents or learning he must have betrayed It to me during bis iortg confinement. In the early purl of January (1111),. a vessel boro down upon iw with every appear ancs of being nn English frigate. A11 hands were called to quarters, and after a short And animated address by the commodore to the crew, all appeared to do their duty. Before 1 drscedded to t}ie cockpit, well knowing Kemble's spirit aud bow* anxiously lie would partake in the glory of the victory (defeat never entered our thoughts), I thought It best to visit him. After stating to him the peculiar situation lie was in. and the great danger he would be exposed to by the least emotion, 1entreated him uzid entered him not to stir during the action, which he promised to ob serve. Wo were soon obliged to fire. At the sound of the first gun he could restrain blmfor a few hours my llfehw* body, commissioned by God to perform the work [ am now J engaged In.'

His speeches occupied about three-quarters of an an hour, and if the whole could have been taken down at the time they would have made' a considerable pamphlet, which would, no doubt, have beeu In great demand.

Lansing, Mich., Ju^y otb, ikkl many hours after Kemble luid been laid self no longer, but regardless of my Admonitions and his own danger he rushed upon deck, and tlew to his gun. laying hold to help run her out. A fresh aud tremeudous dis- charge from his lungs was the consequence, and he was brought down to me again in a most deplorable state. 1 apprehended immediate death, but by the application of the proper remedies I succeeded once, more in stopping the Iisuuirrtiagev.^y which he was reduced to a state of /the inospextrerae debility, Doing ri.-ur l!... iilu<t an 1 «ufforlinr much from heat, Ris hammock was swung on tho gun deck botvieen the ports affording the best circulation of air. "He continued for some time free from hemorrhage, but was under the constant use of medicine, und was confined to a particular diet. This made hiiu fretful and he would frequently charge triy mates with trying to 'Starve him, at the same time damning them in sailor fashion. After some time, being agoiu called to quarters at night, he was necessarily removed below to the sick berth, commonly called bay. This was followed by another discharge of blood from his lungs, which was renewed at Intervals until bis death. "On Jan. 17, In the afternoon, Dr. Birch- more, my first mate, came to- me on deck and reported Kemble to be dead. I dlimttd him to see that his messmates did what was usual on such occasions preparatory to committing his remains to the deep. About two houra after this Dr, Blrchmoro again called on me. Ho said that Kemble had come to life, and was holding forth to the sailors in a strange way. 1 directly went down, where I witness* P of the raikt re markiib b^ind unaccountransactlons that, perhaps, had over full- be tot of man to behold. Kemble had awakened, a«it were, from Bleep, raised him- self up. and called for his messmates in particular and those men who were noton duty, to attend to his words. He told theta he had experienced death, but was allowed a short «pace of Ain» to return and give them, as well as the officers, some directions for their future conduct In life, la this situation I found hlm.'qmrrotmded by the crew, all mute with astonishment, and paying the most serious attentioa to»very word that escaped from his lips. The oldest men were in tears; not a dry eye was to be seen, or a whlsaer heard; all was oasolemn as tho grave. Ilia whole body was aa cold as death could make It. There was no pulsation In the wrists, the temples, or chest perceptible. Hls volce waa clear and powerful, his eyes uncommonly brilliant aad animated. After a short and pertinent address to the medical gentlemen, Fie told me in a peremptory manner to bring Commodore Rodgers to him, a«he had something to say to him before he finally left us.. truly : indescribable, and calculated to fill with awe M L oa*>i when a scene was presented, truly novel and indescribable, and calculated to Oil with awe tbe stoutest heart. The sick bay (or berth) In which he lay 1«entirely set- apart to tbe use of those who are confined to their beds by III- ness. Supported by the surgeons, surrounded by his weeping and astonished comrades, a crowd of spectators looking through ths lattice-work which Inclosed the room, a common japanned lamp throwing out a sickly light, and a candle held opposite bis face by an a t tendant, was the.situation of things when onr worthy commauder made his appefipawce; and well ooea he remember theefleefprodac- ed by so uncommon a spectacle, especially when followed by tbe utterance of these words from the mouth of -one long supposed to have been dead: " Commodore Rodgers, I have sent for you, air, being commissioned by a bjgtw power to addre«you for a short time, and to deliver the message Instructed to me when I was permitted to revisit the earth. Once I trembled in your presence, and was eager to obey B ur commands; but now I am your superior. log no longer an inhabitant of tbe earth. I am not permitted to make known what I have beheld; Indeed, were 1 not forbidden. language would be Inadequate to the task; 'tia enough for you and the crew to know that X have been sent back to earth to reanimate by. I was called out of bed to visit a man tukeii suddenly la bis hammock, hanging near Kemble's apartment, it was nu hour when all but the watch on dock had turned I In; general silence reigned, and all the lights below wpre put out. with the exception of a single lamp In tho sick apartment, whore lay the remains of Kemble. I entered the sick room before 1 retired to n-plaru something, lin'd was turning round to leave It, being alone, when suddenly 1 was almost petrified upon beholding Kemble sitting up in Ills berth, with hi«eyes (which had regained their former brilliancy and iiftelllgeiire) fixed Intently upon mine, 1 became for a moment speechless and mot Ion lens. Thinks 1 to myself, what have I done, or left undone, la this man's case, that sllytild cause him thus to stare at me at till«late hour, am) alone? I waited a Jopg lime in painful suspense, dreading some horrid disclosure, when 1 was.relieved by his commanding me to fetch him some water. With what alacrity 1 obeyed can cosily be imagined. - 1 gave him a tin mug containing w ater, which he put to his mouth, drank of the contents, and returned It to ink; then laid himself quietly down for the Inst time. His situation was precisely the same iu every resppet as before described. The time was now expired which, he had said, was given ijtift hymnal n In the body. The next day by nooval) hand«attended as usual to hear the funeral service read, and see bis remains ronslgned to the grave. It waa an unusually solemn period. Seaman are naturally superstition«, and on this occasion thejr minds had been wrought upon in a singular manner. Decorum Is ^always observed by sailors at such times; but now they were all affected to tears, and when the body was'slid from the plunk Into the sea every one rushed lust!actively to the ship's side to take a la-t look. The usual weights had been uttached to the feet, yet, as if in compliment to their anxiety to see more of him, the body rw perpendicularly from the water, breast high, two or three times. This incident, added greatly to the astonishment already created In ibe minds of the men. 1beg leave to remark that It was not thought proper to keep the body longer in thf warm latltthje we weroln. " I have now given a short aud very Imperfect sketch of the important events attending the last Illness and death of William Kemble. At is submitted to the ladies of thlsstate.beg- glug they will excuse haste aud Inaccuracy. The change produced upon ths crew was for a time very remarkable. It appeared a«if they "wotild never smile or swear again. The effect wore pitby degrees; except when the subject was renewed. * W. Turk. A. Fori** in London Ilebjrai-ia.

Our valuable lecturer. Mr. Charles Dawbaru. ha«been prominently before tho public, by his Instructive and hlghlyentertalnlng lectures, some twenty of which he gave during the winter and spring while we were convened in Frobisher Hall. I am glad do know Mr. Dawbarn Is receiving colls from abroad to Instruct the,people, a«he Is so well qualified to do. Mr. Dawbarn Is also one of ths finest psychometers In this city. Our tittle me< ting has also made its power felt for the benefit of tho sick, by sending Its combined strength and magnetic life, coupled with tbe angel powers, out to those prostrate«) on beds of disease and suffering, we receiving their testimony a,«to the efficacy of the power received on such occasions.

Joy Blanchard, of Delplios. acting u President. The time was well occupied with nurtures, slnglug, lecture» and conferences. Dr. A. D. Ballou delivered two of his grand scientific lecture«, which were well recelred. Sul«Jed»: -.Matter and the forces governing H;'' Tbs Spiritual In the Untvrrae," Chas. H. Moody. nf Jewett county, addressed the meeting in tbs afternoon of each day. Bro, Moody U on inspirational speaker of floe Magnetic power;" he reofchw down, Into Use souls of his audience, touching the floor feelings of man s heller nature with the inspiration b* receives from outside forces, HU lectures were prefaced by reading from Lizzie Do ten's beautiful poems, which I wish had a place in every Spiritualist household, Bro. Moody remained with us ten days, and succeeded to creating more harmonious and charitable feelings among the fraternity than existed here before. In departing we can but say: Ilay God's gtsd angels hires him In hl» work for humanity., I often read In your paper of premonitions of danger. I will relste Bro. Moody's exiwrtence on Sunday, the 15lh of this month. Wien ready for me«ung, he objected to ride in the buggy because be bad a premonition of danger, but having perfect Confidence In my hone, I joked him out of his granny notion," by promising to lead another home I «hind to my mother's ptare, and then hitch to the two-boras wagon, which would Insure bis safety. He»till said be didn't feel safe, hut hod the same feeling he bad a year ago while riding with a friend, when he was Impressed to Jump from,the buggy. His friend assured him there was no danger, when suddenly the hone shied, tipping them over, the wheel running pcenito head, cut off his ear doss and clear as with 4 knife, and bruising him nearly to death. He hid scarcely Ilntobcd bis narrative, when the horse w i wet* leading became frightened and Intuited Into the wheel of the buggy, throwing us out and hurting Bro. Moody severely. He related that two yean ago he was called away to make a political speech, on reaching the depot the train was Just starting. He and a mend ran to catch on. Aa he reached out fats hand to grasp the railing some unseen power suddenly seized him and the words Stop, Charlie," came Just as bis companion slipped, and was instantly crushed to pieces by the car wheala I know w» might often avoid danger If we would listen to our Innilbt* guides. Our cause It progressing here, We expect a grand rally at our August camp meeting, ' Minneapolis, Kansas. JS. A. Sharp. M e d iu m s. -to IM EdlMr ot u>e IMlcko-Ptdlabonhkat Jounrtli Allow me to ask: Most mediums necessarily be more perfect than the average human being? It they are not so, but poesess organizations that spirits can control to demonstrate the fact ot Immorality, should even three Imperfect agents be ignored when the knowledge of the after-lire,» strongly desired, can he obtained through them? In every department uf life we find venr crude material used for the production of essential things, and while It would be very gratifying to the honest luresugator to know that the medium 1* pore, would he or ins be willing to sacrifice the good obtained because the Instrument Is an imperfect one? There are none perfect, no nob one," and my plan would be to surround lb» medium with truthful, honest purposes, thereby giving a backing that good sense always should give to Ibe weak. Mediums are not always subject to highly developed controls and If there Is djaeoead mentallly or corrupt habit*, an effort should be mads on the part ot the more favored to assist the belter class of spirits, so Uiat lbs agent as well as sitter may receive mutual benefit* I do not believe In encouraging dishonesty anywhere, or In any place, bat I think substantial truths ran be gleaned from every grails of life. AH hare their good qnal- luea aa well as had one*, so far as my knowledge of bnmauuy is concerned, and If eadi Individual would cultivate his own Utile garden of self, there would be Imb weeds everywhere.

We mentioned'last week the decision of Mr. Boggles, New York State Superintendent of Public Instruction, that all religious Instruction, and exercise* most be excluded from the school room during school hour*. This decision was male upon the application of a school board that stated a number of Catholic families bod asksd that their children be allowed to remain <wt»id«until tb«devotlonal exercises are concluded"and that tblainterference causes much disorder outside qf the room, and the subsequent entrance of thaw pupus causes a la* of time And disturbance to clan w ort The fallowing paragraph from the CtIAoUc Examiner, shows lit at the efforts of the New York autborlliea to make the public schools acceptable to Catholics are not very successful: "State superintend eat Buggies hue decided that the only proper course for the school author! lire to pursue (a to exclude all religious teaching, whether Protestant or Catholic, from our school*. Prom this, wo lofsr that Mr. Boggles has drunk of (be trerhlugs of Paul Bert deep and to some purpose. Even Protestant» vrili now admit the schools to be godless.

16 R E L I G I O - P H I L O S O P H I C A L J O U R N A L. JULY 12, CüoUa o*d Irota fin i PU * ince Id Nature In the realm of Intelligent Sedngs, for a being endowed as he IsHiipposed to he, God the Father, until Ills cliild where Is the place for another order ol being between these two. Tbetvon of God, the anointed of Üod, tho superior In the heavenly kingdom in what consists this soiihhlp.this superiority by the true lawï Every mail Is an heir of God by virtue of sonxhip, nud as such is joint heir with Jesus, who could have been no more than a child of God, ns every human being K This superiority over others of his race, if he possessed ally, was in coll sequence of spirituality. which is ihe legacy of every human being. in the measure in which he will receive it. Spirituality is the anointing oil which initiates into the priesthood of God which confers the function of prophet, or teacher of spiritual things. The Christ of God, then, can only mean one spiritually developed to the status where he is fitter! to *o comprehend spiritual things, and so conform lit* nature to- spiritual laws, ns to he aqnaltfleil teacher and exemplar of truth; one who 11vas In such ah atmosphere of spirit that hi* nature Is nbov<\ contamination by unholy desires, that Is, while the effort Is to maintain this status; and he is pure in heart, and sees God in alt things as un une of Inferior»pirUu.il»tutus Bees him. What was Jesus s conferred " status of unrlinn," as referred to by Brother Tiffany in the JotutsiL, which gave him the character of the Christ of God," but that which every subject of splrltiisl powers, in striving to conform his nature to spiritual laws, receives us n baptism of spiritual Influences, which ill reality, elevates him above his former MlatiLis? Jesus lived up to the law of spiritual untoidment and hence, lie wa* spiritual in all lifkjiajure. and tilted as a teacher of spiritual truth; possessing within himself by nature Ihe Inherent cavabllily of being so developed. lie received the baptism of the Holy Ghost when he became so susceptible to aplrlttial forces that he could receive Into hi» wliute being an overwhelming influx of spiritual influence from the fountain of divine light and love,and henceforth his nature was turned to godliness, partly, and»elf-ubncgatioii became as hi«second nature, and he was a light unto nil that would heed hla teachings. This experience In all this, judging by the record wo have of him, and by the knowledge we now possess on the subject, was but a type of that of every one who devotes himself to spiritual unfoldment, prompted by his own dpflire or by the powers above, who over stand ready with spiritual gifts for those wild seek them, and who choose from among men Instruments, upon whom they will, by their methods, confer the gift of a high spirituality, as a preparation for teachers of truth mediums tor the use uf spirit teachers. Admiring, as I do. thé spirit of Brother Tiffany's articles, and agreeing wilb him aa to what constitutes Urn true religion and the truly religious power, 1çannut find lu Nature and reason any authority for making of Jjwna the head of. or superior in, the heavenly kingdom. a* he seems to make him. I cannot conceive why be, with his rational views, hla fin«apiruual Insight, should hold to tfie super natural lam that makes Jesus * word'niore authoritative than that of any other one developed as a prophfct.eeer, or teacher In any former age or in these days. Admitting that the Neurone taught the pure ami exalted truths that are calculated to elevate mankind by their application toevery-day life,as thebroth-, or believes, how many others have there been and nre there at present that teach the same things. Inspired as lie was to utter the same truths? These truths are iulultlve with the spiritual minded of all ages and people. The nomenclature of tue snlritual philosophy. aa I believe, should contain no names or æ Hâtions that mislead,or tend ton perpet- >n of reverence for n&mw and authority, or of the mistaken noting that God has made of Jesus a special -mediator or high priest between him self and mankind. The appellation, " the Christ of God, applied to Jesus is misleading, as It is a term belonging to the old theology, and meaning more to mankind In general than wo as dissenters from that can concede. Were we to apply it according to brother Tiffany s explanation of its meaning, to every one spiritually exalted, we should he styled blasphemers by a class of believers. Tne unction conferring this tille we can style, while dropping the title, a spiritual unfoldment by the application of certain lawd the adoption or a certain mode of life and certain practices which spiritualize the nature. This will be a pjaia statemeut of what Spiritualism proper demands as a fulfillment of the taw of perfecting the belng.of bringing nlsnit true regeneration. We can revereuce the character, of one bo single-minded, so s e lf; sacrifie in g and devoted to good works, and reverence the truths he taught, but we cannot make either more»acred at deserving of imitation aud ac- jwas this everlasting law of vlcariousuess ceptation, by making of the man Jesus more that gave him bis own rank or degree In the than God made of aim; more than nature scale of exaltation. The apostle said lu made of him.when lie w«x conceived and born by the samo law by which all men are, living by th,e same law, sustained In his double na-, ture oh all men are, and dying a martyr to h(a fidelity to truth and his fellow men. aa myriads of his race have before and since Ills time. If we call things by their right names, names which we all understand, give ing honor to whom honor is due. we shall he doing a service to humanity, by helping to loosen the chains with which superstition has bound men, and helping to disseminate'' the light of the true, the natural religion The Heavenly World, Its Conditions, Occupation«and Recognitions."

And God «ball wipe away all tear* from their ye».**. But now they desire a better country, a heavenly. 1 Those and many similar passages are foregleams of the future. We do not have dear ones, we have the glimpses and not tbo.details.. We have area from which to describe the circle«; ai Agassiz described the animal, given one of Its bones, or the fish, given onn of Its fins or i^ale«. Necessarily our idea of onr future condition must be vague. It is due, first, to the..narrowness of our sense*. A man reared in a cave In not fit to entertain extended views. Our perception* of the future are not clear, and our environment I* also against ns. It Is largely matter not vary good data from which to study mind and spirit states. We know men In organised forms, but the disembodied state is not eo easily comprehended. It U difficult for an Infant to describe or rtallse manhood states. Our presei. stale 1» to the fntnre what acorns are to oaks, and whnt eggs are to eagles. An eagle In the egg is not prepared to npprerinte a hlg world of cliffs and skies, with depths for soaring and lofty flights. In this world we are all unhatched. Here we fio not see things as they are. We see them as we see the rainbow ami the sky as we pee ships In the fog and slicks in the water. "Bnt there we shall see him as he is." Wo see here as through«glass, darkly. We see things os in enigmas or riddles half solved. The most rational way to hop the future is to project the present life over there. Make heaven much as earth Is, only of belter material and more beautifully wrought. Think of this world and the soul as passing on amt no higher, ami you are the best prepared to form ideas of our possible and probable future. The Scripture* represent by correspondences tind "laws of correspondences;" hence they «[leak of heaven under the thought of a country or Canaan;" under the thought»f mansions of a great city decked with valuable minerals and precious1 stones, as the new heavens and new earth," or a heaven of fairest Bowers, loftiest hills, grandest oceans and most beautiful rivers, many believe tills earth, when* purified and perfected, will he. the home of the redeemed. ir. Dick believes It will he in the Pleiades, which our astronomers believe to be tlie canter of the universe. ( believe with the most lecentaml rational school of thinkers, that our heaven pill be the universe, ami our earth the Pleiades, and that an the planets are our many mansions. The whole universe Is God s house, and all worlds his mansions. In the future world we shall have Immortal bodies. Incorruptible and glorified. Hence an improvement on the bodies of the present ami baby life, ap advanced state; and it is reasonable to believe, tt prefore, that the power of»nr faculties will correspond to such bodies there. We shall have exalted- senses, and, therefore, more noble ami exalted conceptions over there. Our lowness on the earth and heavy atmosphere impede onr vision. Now, matter of'tho courser sort is an Impediment to our seeing. Then ami there we shall see, it may be, with ease aud without limit from world to world. The telescope allows us In our present slate to see the moon as only 300 miles away. To the perfect eye there are gems and beauties yet to be revealed in blade, and leaf and flower. Huxley tells us if onr hearing were more perfect we ' could djscern the music of the ripples In the running sap of, every leaf aud flower. A body without Bears, blemishes and weakness will, with the harmony of all its faculties perfected, revel In the consciousness of perfect health, strength and heauty forever; A body not weighed down hy gravity can rise through an eternity of worlds of surpassing grandeur amlscenesof magnificence and brillianry. Without doubt we shall carry our minds wllh us through the gtave and into that future. We shall have, therefore, the powers of learning, reasoning and memory over there. These faculties carried over there, God will complement with the things that feed and gratify them. Reason feeds on cause and effect, and on cause and effect mathematics, philosophy, astronomy, mt»lc and science are founded. H Is reasonable we»ball have all these over there, and with our powers of learning aud memory almost Infinitely increased, what stores of knowledge are awaiting the future man possiblo and highly probable, over there. These facts give man something to do In heaven. For man, hnman nature, must be aptlve to be happy. The Savior gave us the earn» thought when ho taught us to pray; "Thy will be done-on earth as It is done in heaven." I' love to think that lu the future 1 shall grow forever; forever lay hold on facts, truths, loves, beauties ami harmonies, and grasp and hold them in Ihe grin of a deathless mind nnd memory through the endless ages. What thoughts and joys, and loves and experiences will be treasured up In a memory that shalt ftfrget nothing through the everlasting years. These powers will appreciate accordingly as they have been developed lojlt and understand and enjoy; and tills is the principle that shall "grade" iih and make our "degrees" uf happiness In the future. The Savior himself recognize«this great principle of prepared receptivity in order to enjoy heaven. It Is not for me to give yon a place on the left or right hand of my king dom. God gives them to those for whom they are prepared," and they are prepared to receive them who have drunk from his cup nlid been baptized with Ills baptism of suffering. And hence Christ replied to his disciples, if you would have high place» of rank In 'degree" above others, you must fit yourself by experience and suffering love. It view of Christ s sufferings: Wherefore. God hath highly exalted him and given him a name above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Unnatural that there nre degree* In heaven. Vegetable aud animal Hie exist lu varying specie» and hence of degrees. There are some 3U0 species of the rose; some 200 species of the dog. Men are made differently one superior to the other. Food, climate, soil, sky and education have much to do with the different types of men. But as to genius and native faculty, some men are euperior by creation to others; anil It Is not In tne power of education to make the inferior man by creation the equal of tho superior genius. Yoii can not make eagles out of geese. God l* the author of their degree* and grade*. This law of variety we witness in the star«. "Ono»tar dlffercih from another in glory," and the holy Scriptures teach that men shall ad differ in the resurreiuon, The old theology taught we should all'be a'lke o* so many moulded caudles, one scarcely distinguished from another. The Savior»aid to bla aponues, that they who should foffowjln the regeneration, when he should sit on the throne of hi* glory, should sit upon twelve throne* Judging the twelve, tribe* of Israel." Here la a remarkable superiority affirmed, and hence degree«of prominence In the everlasting kingdom of God; and that they of his disciples who should rule well over a few cities,»hottld be made rulera over many cuies. And here he puts in a figure, degree of trust and prominence among men in the life to come. Men in heaven, a» they are on earth, are like sponges of varying capacities, Each bolds till full, but some being larger, hold more than others. And the eame great law measures our.enjoyment* here when epplisd to mueic, painting, architecture, oratory, all science and philosophy. ~ Thsre are "weight*»eight* of glory" In la that world. But Paul Iron a hi* great Buffering* and eacrl- Dee* and thei consequent capacities for' enjoyments.lool... fced "forward "to T a far more exceodlog and eternal weight of glory. Batnt* and alaggirds will not, by virtue of their differing culture, r«elve the «m e glory. God hang* premium* on Industry and faithfulness here, nud he Hay* he will do It hereafter. And Ulsjnet that he should do so. We shall Uko our heart-life over there, ne slinfl love over there a* we have heart capacity, Big heart* will love more because capable of more; heiice there will be degrees and nlonen of affection nud friendship* there. The Uw ol " nfllnlty will, therefore, obtain there ns here. We will love some people more because they nretnore lovely nnd more of them to tovet There men will love right forth«love of right. And it will be w> of truth, goodness, righteousness, liberty, justice and the eternal beauty. The loves of life will be carried over there, and somehow and in same wav we shall know each other there. Our Savior said: I go to prepare a place for you." If we shall realize that promise, we must know ourselves a* ourselves, and tint a* others. and others will do the same; and. therefore, income sense, there wilt be mutual recognition. lu the son*» of personal Identity, This fact obtained at the Transfiguration. TJifro Moses nnd Elias from the Spirit-world appeared, and were jn-nonihly -recognized, and talked with Jesus Christ, and ho himself said: "Many shall come from the Kart and West, atid North and South, and sit down in bis kingdom wlfh Atonliam, Isaac and Jacob. Hives and Lazatns 4 uslrate the»am«fnct. There was then littue Hplrlt-wnrld a recognition of personal Identity and individuality, fives also remembered the world he had left, and desired that messenger* should be sent to wnrri hie five brothers " noj to come to that place of torment, lnstluft demand* that we»hall In some sen-«renew our friendship nnd love» over there. InstIJivt you know, I* the word of God cut in the-constltutlon of the human soul. God ha* /complement» for instincts, else why did he make them? Did he make them to deny their demand* that lie might work cruel disappointment ill the»mil» of Ills creatures? The law of Identity will not he found In the flesh. " Flesh and blood «hall not enter the kingdom of God," Well, then, How can such thing* he?" They can be as the resurrection can lie. The Corinthian* denied the fact, tor they could not eee " liow it coaid be; and Christ'* disciples could not see how these relationship* and recognition» could be! They were told that "they erred, not knowing the Scripture* and the power of God." 1 confea* 1 coold not fix up the difficulties, for 1 am not capable of running a world." Bnt the power of God can bring them nil about. Wo cannot seo how. Bnt there 'are many thing* that exist whose philosophy nod reasons we do not fathom, and yet they are and will be! Our»plrltual, worshipful natures we shall take over there, for we shall take ourselves over there, and the religious factor Is a part of man. This fact mental philosophy aud universal history attest. Man is naturally a religious being. We»hull worship, therefore, over there. This fact also the Scripture* teach us. HI* redeemed people will unite in a song of blessing, glory, honor and power to him 'that sltteth upon the throne and the Lumb forever and ever. Thy will be done on earth hh it I* in heaven. The will of <ivl is done in heaven, It will be a great, active world. We»hall have more to do than stand ill long, white robe» about the fhronejmd make bow* and sing anthems, it will bo an eternity of thoughtfulne**, love,_frltindshlp. purity, art. architecture, oratory, poetry and worntep. There, with strong, healthful, 5maiorial bodies, and minds open to truth, and heart«free to the sweet dictate* and Impulse* of love, and with spiritual natures ever drawing vis closer about God and his great white throne, we shall live through endless age» of progress! Here we have not time to travel and study the records of all nation» and tribes and tongues, There, we shall have time for enjoying the finest libraries nud largest galleries of all worlds. We shall meet tho travelers from qll' planet*, and the pure hearts, great thinkers, artist*, historian«and phllanthroplhte'.

A Lecture JJelirvred by Charles I hue barn at Frobit her Hall, Sew York City, r[{sported forth* lm tcurl tdloaopblf«journal.) Mao ou earth must lit» true to his conditions or he will pan«out of exigence; but he has conditions of the body and conditions of the soul. The perfect man Is one grand harmon-, lal whole, but the cottage In which that uip known one resides, has not yet been discover od. if we are not fanatics we are ready to acknowledge that man s duty to himself and the world demands that he shall so live os to remain on earth as long as possible. It is at once obvhus thaj the conditions of a nation surrounded by coarse, grasping, sensual foes, is very different from that of a people seeking the greatest happiness of the greatest number, and with neighbors of similar desire. If we as sensible men and women acknowledge self-defense as a necessity under the first named conditions, It la equally obvious that oar dqty is to defeat our foe at the least pos- «1* le coat to ourselves; and bo we lay our plans to make him believe our attack is to be by daylight upon yonder fort, while we mean really to surprise his camp In midnight darkness. Just as the quail runs before you with drooping wings and halting stew to lead yon front her young, so we with the lie of deception entice onr foe to his ruin. If the conditions of our life fee such that the horrtjrs of war be a necessity, then all but the fanatic Will see that with shot, shell and bayobet. Ilea go aa a part of the paraphernalia of ^ar; ana the greatest general will be the one who moat successfully 11«the enemy into deadly ambosh and total defeat. But mark this: It 1«only becaaae war la a brutal necessity that lies become justifiable ns weapons in the conflict. As soon as your object tie pepce instead of battle, your lies must be pnt sway with yonr shot and your shell, or peace becomes Impossible. If your opponent be deceived into peace by a tying treaty, war is sure to again break out. It Is irtvii good; hut when the patient discover«this lmbit, lie will place the doctor an tt professional liar, in the same school as the Jesuit and the i hrlstinu Fathers. The coming physician will scorn a lip ns much as he will avoid blood Idling, or impregnating a healthy child with rotten pus, to save him from small-pox. True manhood means honor lu word and deed. Give me only candor. Open-hearted sincerity of word and action, and my friend ami I will clasp hands through life, even though differ Ing tastes bar close companionship. The true man Is full of charity. He will not hastily impute untruth and deceit when a statement is made that seems Incredible. It 1«well for us to remember that truth Is many sided, and like the Obelluk (n Central Park, though the writing may vary, It over stands on the same pedestal. Now, remember to what we have committed ourselves In the beginning of this lecture. We have acknowledged that if war be a necessity, we must no more object to lies than to shot aud to shell, because they go together, and are sworn brothers In arms. Hut notice, the lie works harmoniously with war, a Imply because war la itself an outburst of manhood s hell of passion, and therefore the lie accompanies It every time. The lie not only springs from man's lower nature, but U proves that for the tlrtnrtkat lower nature is uppermost. The only possible' Justification of a lie, as of murder, ib that it is a horrible necessity springing from man s Ignorarce how to accomplish hla purpose m a belter manner. Some hate a Ho, as we hate war, disease and everything that pulls mao down to heaathood, It Is also well for ua to notice that the world furbishes greater variety in individual manhood shown In separate races. The lower- down the man, the inore certain aud/natural the He. J^he more elevated the manhood, the more repugnant becomes every variation from truth. * The wondrous bond of sympathy existing between mortals and spirits Is based every time on mental level, and not at alt on education or social refinement. That la one grand fact, and another Is that death does not necessarily effect any change in a man s nature or disposition; so thn earth liar becomes the spirit brother of all who iove a He and glory In deception. It seems to me that thongh- our subject he with reference to lies we are already extracting from it some important truths, of which I propose to make practical application. The Spiritualist Is blessed with the grandest -flluiosodhy to which human nature Jim aspired. No grief need merge into hopeless sorrow now, lor the loved one lives, and can assure you of continued love and a natural immortality. This is the truth the human heart has sought from the beginning, and It Is the joy and glory of the llhh century. It is asserted that Strae human beings now on earth are so horribly at war with themselves aud society, as to delight in making fun of the holiest feelings of the human heart. We can understand the position of the man who demands the easiest possible living and ehooees fraud to accomplish that end; bat the other seems so horrible, so positively devilish, that we have to listen to the confession of the miserable wretch. In order to believe it. A work has recently been published by one Truesdeli. of Syracuse, N. Y called " Bottom Facts in Spiritualism, actually written to establish hls/own eminence in fraud, or to exhibit hla lore of practicing deception upon mothers, daughters, husbands, wives, brothers and slaters, who have sought, or hare been Invited by, this wretch, to hold holy spirit communion through his medlumahip. He takes os the matter for hla book: If I am deceived, 1 pray that I may not know it: but If I kuowttt, I pray that I may be able to laugh at the whole affair. In nls work, he not only magnifies the long exposed frauds of real or pretended media ms. but casts a lying slur on the thoroughly proved facts of Spiritualism. He describee, for instance, most minutely, how he got the memorandum in war that man? lowest propensities come- book out of a gentleman s pocket, who bad to the front, and it is with just those faculties of human nature that a lle ls in harmony. Aa he gradaally rises Into a nobler man hood, truth comes to the front, and it is an essential of this progress that the lie be Ipft b e h ld d r- Notlee how some national disputes have recently been settled by arbitration Instead of by war. This has been a grand advance towards crowning the soul as sovereign over the body; but arbitration demands truth as^ the first and all-lmportaat condition of success. It has been discovered that lies of trade and commerce don t pay. Yon will find every large buslncim In the world conducted on priociples of honor; only the huckster and the pettifogger lie now a-days, because they or* too Ignorant to tell the trn»ji. whea yon wish to proclaim a man as honorable yon say: His word la aa good as hla bond I What do we find ourselves proving? la It not, first, that the lie 1«the product of the animal In man; and next, that as man progress- ea he outgrows the.he, and discovers that troth la an element of advanced manjiood? Our definition of a He U very tm p tf: **A misrepresentation with Intent to deceive. The early Christian Fathers preached that It U right to He to the glory of God. Aa a necessary consequence onr thinkers of to-day count them as professional Liars. A similar principle is attributed to the Jesuits, and. they are always suspected of working la the dark for an unlawful end; yet they five self- sacrificing, devoted lives, and possibly accept the brand of suspected liar aa an element of martyrdom. Not long aloes a learned doctor told ma that be often deceived his patients for their called for a sluing, and need the names aud information so gained to forge spirit communications which delighted hla visitor. I merely speak of this as proving to yon that there are human monsters now on earth, who.have no respect for the **Holy of Holies *TIn the human heart, and who rejoice with fiendish glee, as they publish their Infamous deceptions to the world. If there be now tn our midst men aud women, living like ghouls, feeding upon human hearts, remember that they pass unchanged Into spirit life, and watch-eagerly for conditions which will enable them to return and ridicule human affection. We have now submitted two facta that will assist ua In getting onr subject Into clear and distinct form. First, that a lie is a necessity of those gross conditions that force men Into war, quarrels and bloodshed, and Is just as true to Us conditions as the noble development which impels a man to sacrifice his life that others may be saved. Tbs second fact is: There are men even -to-day In clvllixed society, whose life Is on that low level, that a lla>ls positively truth.to their conditions, and accords with their sense of enjoyment. We will now add an equally important fact: There are amongst ns, men and women, who love truth with their wusle tools, and whose lives are beacons pointing io the grand possibilities of true manhood. ATYof-vtia know such men and women; and with all your admiration yon have to acknowledge that they are better fitted to mingle with angels in heaven than to match wits with the wicked ones of earth. They may have gained the harmiesa- ness of the dove, but they have lost all the wisdom nf the serpent. Truth! <ih absolutely an effect nf the sphere in.which they ilwqjl as a " lla " 1«In harmony with the lowest conditions of life. Ho here we see two distinct «pharos of life opposite as. the poles each true tn itself and each unable to understand the other. The higher sphere sees good In all. things, puts n charitable construction on thedmibtfnl, and bsttfvss in the Inherent «r-, 1ri t i.f Unman- nature; the lower speaks, act«and believes lu the virtue of a lie, and considers human nature as one vast field of fools, tn which the smart can find»port and great gain, Kxtreinlsts are unsafe counsellors at all times and under all circumstances. Fortunately forth«world the most of men In which I modestly Include yon and myself straggle for a foothold on a plane midway between these extremes, which we believe to be the realm of common-sense. We recognize that there are those thoroughly unprincipled by organism and conditions, who are lying In wait to swindle ns at every opportunity; and we claim the right to protect ourselves and repress the scoundrels. On the other hand, we listen kindly to the appeal«for universal charity made by our brothers of the '* bright extreme, * for we admire, respect and love them, one of tha objects of this lecture Is to show these gentle souls onr true stand-point, and prove it to ba founded upon justice both to ourselves and to those w*> blame. Notice the old troth: "All men are In harmony with spirits of their own nature«. The " Truesdeli" sphere, outside earth-life, 1«tn eager harmony and accord with the " Tnies- deh*' nhedlum«in cabinet aud circle. On the other hand, there 1«no Influence so bright and pure that it will not be tn lore and fellowship with natures-for instance. Ilka those of our brothers, Thos. K. Hazard and the late Robt. Dale Owen. Yon and I are. of coum-. particularly disgusted with the "Truesdeir sphere of falsehood, and mean to protect ourselves; but we are compelled to acknowledge that many of t lmf earth saint«live In r, sphere altogether too angelic and unpractical for earth life, under the conditions of. to-day. We crave communion with the Spirit-world, and are willing to submit to any reasonable condition«to attain our object; and we now propose to have a talk with spirits and mortals from this platform that shall «bow just what we require, acid prove that we are dwellers In the realm o r common sense. Spirit«have claimed for a long time that they have the power of matenallxatlou; In other word«, can now make themselves visible and tangible to mortal«. I am one of those who beljet«this phase to be a truth, as welj attested u«most other facts of earth life, necessarily rare and exceptional. Yet we all know, and none can deny It. that there are continually exposures of outrageous fraud, perpetrated by mediums of great notoriety, spirit«give u«a clue to thl«, for they always tell ns that the more gross the spirit, the greater bis power over crud> matter. Necessarily such spirit«will find.(he most harmony In worklug through mediums of their own moral stand-point,which you perceive Is the claae In which man «lowest propensities are uppermost. Therefore, as common sense Investigator«, we know that when we enter the public miscellaneous Inharmonious dark circle or materiahzation stance, we are placing ourselves in thatspbereof sensualism which reeds war and fra lid. and where "Trnes- dells are particularly at borne. It Is at this point that common sense comes to the front, and «ays to the medium: "We don't accuse yon of fraud just because you are a medium. We do not accuse your spirit controls of frand until such a charge 1«grounded upon suspicions clrcufnstances; but aa both medium and control, by the very necessity of the case, belong to a sphere wherd fraud -Is possible, we intend, to take every precaution against bfingfopted by a Truesdeli." 8o far 1 am snre I have your warm approval, and you will agree with me that any Instrument capable of being used by the Bpirit-world Is of too great value to be lightly trifled with. On the one hand, onr friends of the "brightextreme-are shrieking, "Sacrilege!" when we count the medium as a responsible mortal; and on the other, we have "Trnee- dells" watching every opportunity to mark ns aa "plucked geese. With singular Inconsistency, we are told atone time of the necessarily unprogressed spiritual standing of the medium s band, and almost in the same breath we are exhorted to leave everything to the sagacity and wisdom of the spirit*, and when a bare-faced fraud is exposed, It is always the modi am poor thing who has been the victim df "TrueadeH" spirits brought therp by the sitters. A*ay with such atrocious nonsense Away forpver with the aksertion that the Justifiable and necessary suspicion of dishonesty felt by tbs investigator, Is be cause of any fraud in which the medium may be detected! Gentlemen of the "bright extreme," we have shown you that you regard us as fools when you aak us to give up our auspicious under present circumstance«; but we will meet you in the ance on a platform of perfect candor. We have a right to our suspfeioos. and ao we avow them. Now, we demand of the rsplrlta that they meet ns with equal candor.

Colon.;, Central Hall, in Fulton street, was crowd- ed to snffocation last night by an audience composed partly of those wtjo believe in nio- ytern Spiritualism and partly of those who do not. and who had come to listen to a continuât ton of (lie discussion began aiweefc ago on Spiritualism. Colonel John D. Graham, who said he was a Spiritualist, presided, aod the meeting wa>-opened with a prayer by the Rev. William Werandia city missionary. The question reported by iqe committee for discussion was: Are modern spiritual manifestations sustained by science and revelation?" The discussion was opened by Mrs. T. J. Lillie. Her address wan quite interesting to listen to, bat It was far more-eloquent than It was argumentative. Bhe claimed that Bpir- ttuattsm Is a science and that tb* power which produced the first rap was a spiritual power. She also claimed that the writings of Andrew Jackson Davis were as much a spiritual revelation to hlm m were those of St. Pan! and St. James to them, and said that his writings were as sacred to the Spiritualist as whs toe Bible to the Christian. Revelation means the Christian s Bible aud all tbé spiritual revelations, of to-day are foretold by the revelations of the Bible. Had she.time to cite chapter and terse Bhe could prove that the revelation of God was the revelation of a spiritual power, and that the revelations of to-day were sustained by the revelations of the Bible.'

He said: **How cheerfully»he took up the dally burden of life and effort. With what werene cour* age she looked Into the face of peril to her own life, and to those dearer to her tluin life. Trained mining friend», with the blood of martyrdom and se)f-«acriflce In her vein», she came m> naturally to the altar! Sheltered in th i jail, a great city hungering for his life, how strong her husband must have been When, they brought him his youtig wife's brave words: *I know my hunbaud will never lie- tray liie principle».' Helpmeet, indeed, for the pioneer In that terrible fight! The most nose I fish of all human beings, she poured her strength Into the lives of those about her A youug mother, with the cares of a growing family, not rich lu means, only her own hands lo help.-yet never fulling In cheerfui welcome, with rare executive ability, doing a great deal, and ho easily a» never to seem burdened! She made a family of their friend», aud her roof was always n homo for all; yet drtidgery did not check thought, or caia narrow Her Interest. She was not merely the moturt or the head of a borne; her own life anil her husband'» moved hand in hand In eurii loving accord, seemed so exactly one. that It was hard to divide their work. At the fireside, la the hours not frequent of relaxation, in scene» of stormy debate, that beautiful presence of rare sweet ness rind dignity, what an Inspiration and power it was! And then the mother fond, painstaking and faithful...she Is not dead.

She works on n higher level; ministers to old ideas, guards loving-' ly those «he went through life with." PERSONAL INCIDENTS AND ACQUAINTANCES Tbe anti-slavery movement was a signal illustration of the power of truth. Here wa» the slave-system, strong In Its control of over 11,000,000.4KX> Invested in human beings a great and hideous monnpoly. Parties, sects, office holder», and pulpits were In It» hands. The people were Inert, unless aroused, ami then their prejudices were largely with Hie slaveholder. For one poor man to demand the immediate overthrow pf this system seemed absurd. Daniel Webster denounced Hie anti-slavery movement as a " rub-a-dub unite Hon." Tbe poor world, then even more than now. saw power only in money nml iu the machinery of'party and sect, and had tynall thought of ii mightier power, spiritual ' ami Invisible. A few saw deeper; James Russell Lowell said: " Men Ot a thousand»hi Its anil wiles, look beret Bee one MmtjrhMorwrjnl eonielenee put In pawn. To win a wurtili sen the obedient *pb*n\ ifr bmtenr's Simple irmvitatl»q Urawu.*' Conscience won: politicians and pulpits f ave way; parties broke In pieces; gold was tit dross as against justice; shivery went down, and the planter in Georgia joins lhe abolitionist In Massachusetts in rejoicing at its downfall., In the pioneer anti-slavery lecture field, from Maine to Missouri and Delaware, I spent J eare In cities, towns, aud country byways. great book coujd be mortrthhn filled with Stories ot hospitable homes, mu) warm welcomes, golden conptinsnhonf for prejudice and contempt elsewhere, and Inspiring helps in the'great contest. Misunderstood and disliked or hated by the outside majority, the abolitionists had a warm side for each other; and this, with their Intelligence, moral courage and fidelity, made their society both delightful and Instructive. I hnve often heard It said, and truly, that if their efforts never freed a slave, the benefit* of moral education ana the culture of character for themselves wonld more than pay for all their troubles and trials. People marvel at the growth of Frederick Dougins» from the Ignorance of slavery to his present eminence. He had twenty years of the best education in America. ho University could have given such scope for mental ahd moral culture as the society of the eminent anti-slavery advocates, the hearing of their great speeches, and the reading of such books as they, or his own genius, might BUggeat. In the light and warmth of «neb an atmosphere his large faculties gained wealth and freedom. One of my first Journeys in this field was in 184ft, from Hatfield to, the Western Reserve In Ohio, to Join Stephen 8, Foster aud Abby Kelley, for three months. I reached Ashtabula with five dollars in my nurse, and with the supreme Independence of youth, which made much or little of small moment. The great grove meetings were full of novel attraction. Eq one place 1 remember, where thousands gathered, a farm wagon used as a speaker's stand, was taken to piecesju the night end its wheel«and frame scattered over the ten acre lot. In thecwornlug, after it was again pat together, Mr. Footer stood up la* It and said he had seen some courageous act«, but the bravery needed to mob an old wagon In tbe dark was most wonderful!" There was a great laugh, and tbe wagon was thereafter safe. A young man once came to me, led me carefully aside So a fence-corner, and asked anxiously: "Does Mr. Foster believe in marriage?" 1 answered that I never asked him, but he had told me he was to marry Abby Kelly lu a few months, at which Hie young man was greatly relieved. Prejudice breeds strange fancies. All that Foster had said of marriage was to rebake ite.vlolation in slavery. In private life 8.8. Foster was gentle and true; one of the very kindest of friends;, in G blle hie word» had tbe directness and an- tiding sternness of the Puritan. He was a Puritan, in grain' and temper, nml early training; and study for the ministry in an orthodox seminary in New England deepened his Inherited quell ties. Their creed he did not believe, bnt he scourged the upholders of slavery, aa John Kook In bis Scotch pulpit scourged heretics, aud like John Knox he called thing» by their right names. The communion tables of Presbyterians. Methodists and others, reached from the sunny south to the Dine woods of Maine, ail were "brethren In the Lord together. The 'Southern brethren" held and bought and sold slaves, were "man stealers," the Northern brethren fraternised, with them, kept silent as to their crime, aud called them Christian», He charged the American Church and clergy with being u A brotherhood of thieves, and made that the title of a widely-read pamphlet of fearful facte. This terrible logic startled the duuect, and.was hard to escape from. If a good church member or preacher denied it, and wished a bearing, he was fairly and fully heard, hot than earns the crushing vejoiatier. In Marlboro chapel, Boston, I saw him go to the platform carrying a pair of heavy slave-shack les and au Iron collar, Lhree- protig*h and ugly looking, in due time he spoke, rattling Hie shackles he said: " These are your bond* of Christian fellowship:" holding up-1 he great collar arid clnspltig ft about his neck, with its prongs standing oat above ills head, he continued: And this 1» one of your token» of Christian lover and told where these carue from, that iioue might doubt their genuineness. He was nn agitator aud did a needed work. Ktnerson s description of a strong orator well applies to him: "He mobbed the mob, and was more audacious than they;" but ho was not recklessly destructive; he wn» only smiting down the had, that the Í ;ood might live all the belter. Few did more or the final triumph of freedom than Ihis strong.and excellent man. In New Lisbon one night s hundred of ns stayed at tho (junker homo of Mr. Garrolson^ sleeping in row» feet to feet on Hie floor, which' was strewn with straw covered with coarse cloth- About midway in the rows were two \lall Virginians, slaveholders, who had come Over to Sear tbe abolitionists. Their feet almost touched, anil-one laughingly said: "Gen- tlfimen. this Is Mason and Dixon s line. No man crosses this in safety" They were manly characters, greatly interested, ami well-behaved. The next day a riot broke up the meetings for a time, and filled the streets with dire threat». In tilts the Virginians took no part, hut expressed a lofty and genuine contempt for it. Boon came a reaction, and great audience» kept the best order. Soon after this 1 visited Massillon alone, and a mob crowded the entrance to one hail, with tar kettle and a bag of feathers ready for nse, us I came out. A group of men guarded me. I walked near enough to tbe kettle to tourh it; oaths were plenty, but no act save ii fusliladoof bad eggs spattering the side walk, but hitting nobody. I never feared a mob. I have no courage to boast of, but have several times walkedtanletly through groupsdf angry men, shaking their fists in my face. A ludicrous Yiew of It always came up in my mind, which kept fright away, ami It Is almost impossible for a mob to touch a fearless person. In I hllilpsville, now Belmont, among the hills of Alleghany County, New York, an egg thrown through the church door, struck me in tho left eye. All night long a kind Presbyterian minister, Mr. Van Antwerp,watched by me ami kept wet and cool cloth on tho swollen and bleeding eye, and in two weeks I wns happily well, and past what seemed a serious hurt. There was great indignation among the people, and that poor egg was as good as h dozen able speeches. Going back to Ohio, a visit to the home of Joshua K. Glddlugs, nt Jefferson Ashtabula County, 1» well remembered, lie entertained U» ami others, and took part in our meetings, giving frank assent, and criticism a» frank and fair. He was a strong, brave man. unpretending and genuine, his manners those of a plain countryman who luid seen enough of the world to be at ease. A strong man physically Phi, with an aspect and carriage showing that he knew no fear. Au elderly mail came to his door on a warm afternoon, whom he greeted a» a friend. He seemed a little weary after along rid«from his farm. Mr. Biddings asked: "Where is your horse?" "At the gate," was the answer, "and I'll put him In your bam if there's room." "You don't know about the stables. I ll put him In for you," said Mr. Glddings, and the good man rested while the really honorable Congressman stabled ills hóree. It was a simple act- of neighborly kindness, and showed what manner of man ho was. Ip tho morning our host said after breakfast:' Wo have family prayers, but,if any of you prefer to bo in your rooms, there is entire freedom here. This was probably said, because he.thought that Abby Kelley a (junker education might urake stated seasons of prayer distasteful to her. If showed a largeness that we liked, and we all stayed through the sincere family worship. He after wards became a Spiritualist, and his daughter Marla, who was with him In bis last days ot Montreal, told me that his faith and knowledge gave him great light and strength, to the last. I liked the Western Reserve the northeastern Ohio counties. The really^best blood of Now England went there emigrants from the middle olas», upright and thoughtful working people. On Lodi plains, Ju Michigan, five miles south of Ann Arbor, lived Captain Laurie who found a new way of preaching the gospel. Over the gate to hi» yard, fastened to posts high enough for a load of hay to pass under, was a wide board, on which was painted a white man at one end, and a black man at tho other, holding between them a scroll with these words: Are we not all brethren?" This sermon, ba he called It. went far and wide. The daily stage would etop for passengers to read it; travelers would go that road to see it; every neighbor's child talked about jt, and so the gospel, which the pulpits failed to preach, went fprth from over that gateway. Had he been a weak mao, it might have been torn down, hut he bad a sturdy will, and broad acres and full barns, and was an upright man of a sort not safe to tamper with, and so it stood for years. One man at least, enjoyed it greatly, if I could jndge from Hie satisfaction wrti which Captain Lourle fold me of the talk it made. Id an interior town In Michigan, I gave their first antl-blavery lecture to some thirty men in a small hall over a store, while a larger number were in the room below, to bear through the open doors. The next day the talk on the streets was that the marriage institution bad been attacked, while only slavery, aa destroying marriage, had been-al- luded to. Fifteen years later, I went to that town by Invitation, spoke in a large hall filled with its leading people, audtfutered the same sentiments with their hearty applause. Odd great leason the kntl-sjavery reform Impressed upon me never to advocate or fek lows hip what 1 did not believe. I saw thir shipwreck of character, the trifling Instability. the toss of all moral power and self-respect that borne with such Infidelity the dry rot eating ont the heart. ITobe «mttaimhu A Communication from Andrew Jackson Davis concerning the United States Medical College. Conveying Some Intereiting Itemi of.spiritual Tnterconne, lit II» EtUluf L.JUi«l-tiUu»,t40au Juurakb About four years ago, while delivering a discourse before Hie ilarnionlal Association of New York City, I was "Impressed" to explain the nature and importance of human magnetism. At that time Allopathic Medical orthodoxy had succeeded in obtaining r proscriptive law, bearing heavily inni with tbe wide-spread tyranny of injustice upon all "Healing Mediums." "Clairvoyant Physicians," and Magnet 1st.» generally, practicing in tho State of New York. If they had not a regular orthodox diploma, and if this was not properly recorded In office of the County Clerk, then r o The Rev. Henry V. Plummer, of Maryland, who was appointed by the President to the Chaplaincy of the Ninth United States Cavalry a day or two ago, is a colored man, an ex- e lave, who was a field hand lu Prince George s County, Maryland, till he was emancipated. He wee appointed to a position In the Post- Office Department by Postmaster-General Cresweil, and remained in the place till be had saved enough money to pay for a course through Howard University.

In explaining tho principles and therapeutic application hf human magnellsm.aml advocating the emploraiprit of intuition and Induced culrvoyancem the treatment and detection of disease, I urged the desirableness ot trained faculliet oa the part of mediums and magnetic physicians. I suggested and urged the establishment of a Chair of Psychological Science and Magnetic Therapeutics Jn some college of liberal medicine; and the United Slates Medical College was designated by'meas the institution most likely to entertain sucha novel proposition. In response to a committee of application appointed by the Haruionlnl Association, tho College accepted our proposition with the understanding that the salary of the Professor would be annually paid by tbe Association. Thereupon I commenced exerting my influence among mediums and clalrvoy an Is, counseling them to avail themselves of practical instructions in each of the essentia I branches of a medical education; especially to become educated lu physiology, chemistry, pathology, psychology^«? the brain and nervous systems), nml lastly, to understand the history and uses of magnetism the whole effort in the college to be crowned with «legal diploma, which would give each a firm footing Independent iff the proscriptive medical law instituted by Allopathic orthodoxy. Iu substance 1 «aid; "Como with me! I will go into the College myself; I will.become a fellow studept with you, and If I can I will graduate." Thus encouraged. autt thus companionntcd aud stimulated by my personal example, a large glass of magnetic healers, mediums and clalrvoy- ants, matriculated and became students, nnd finally they graduated creditably, and with much satisfaction to themselves, being thereby armed with a legal right to practice us physicians on a footing equal to the most or- tlmdoxlu the profession, Luting the collegiate term, the old school opposition to our Eclectic corporation corik- tueucod lu earnest. First, the euemies induced the Commissioners of Charities and Correc lions, who had legal management of RelUvue, Blackwell island Hospital, to refuse to the United States Medical College, the bodies (of paupers, etc.) for purposes of disxertion. We were all In great trouble. The oilier Colleges could get their quoin of cadavers without difficulty. The President of our College being a personal friend, naturally asked me If 1 could discern a way out. One morning, about day break, I observed a group of faces in the air. (These faces. Jet me say in passing- are artistic productions. Symbols and prefigura- tlob-s of events come W ore the vision of "seers" and sensitives out of the mental energies and will-power of superintending celestial Intelligences). Apiong these faces that I beheld were twowhlph beamed encouragingly into my eye»; one was the kindly countenance of ex-judge F. J. Fithlan, of this city, and the other was the energetic face of my old friend. C. 0, Prole, of Metuchen, N. J. Immediately! visited the President of our College (saying nothing to him of what 1 had seen), and said: "There are two men who can overcome our troubles with the Commissioners of Charities and Corrections." I named them. Together we went to the office of Judge Fithlan, and made an arrangement to put our case in his hands. Atoxice I notified Mr. Poole, and he did Rot need urging, for he proceeded immediately to write and visit our counsel, and to encourage him to take hold of the case, giving him hint«from hta own store-house of legal knowledge aud practice. In a word. In due course of some legal transactions best known among lawyers, we obtained all the bodies required for purposes of dissection. * Our College was duly incorporated under the general law of 1X48. a» amended iu 1870; and we had no reason to doubt our legal existence, ButThe Allopathic New York County Medical Society instituted a suit against us, which was argued anil decided adversely iu the Supreme Court, Special Term. The ground taken wns that the law of 1848, with its subsequent amendments, was not broad enough to include a Medical College, From this Interpretation we appealed to the general term of the Supreme Court, arguing that tho additional law ot'1882, which provided for tbe incorporation of\literary-and Scientific Colleges," did cover, and was meant by the Legislature to cover, a^iedical College, Inasmuch as the very foundation of ail physiological, anatomical and pathological knowledge la based upon what Is, nnd has been scientifically demonstrated. \ Bnt just here, dear reader, in order that you should understambmy own private and personal relation to all these struggle» in behalf of the moat perfeqt medical principles, ideas and p ra c tic e s system oh broad and a plan free as the most liberal Institutions growing ont of our American Government I must relate to you another ««/mhofir vision, which the providential guardians artistically constructed in the air, early in the morning of Jniy 4th, The scene was this; Amid a rushing and crushing flood of many waters, was a prick building, which was shaken and tottering almost to its downfall, while the volume aud terrible energy of the tides increased every moment. Meanwhile i seemed to be standing upon a higher»trip of ground, a little elevated above tho raging, roaring torrents. And beside me, both to the right and to the left of me, I sawmany persons who also where looking withe threatening flood. Some of these persons were acquaintance» living In this world officers ot the College and members of the Faculty but others In the group, whom I him recogoueil. were citizens of lute skies in the Summer-land. Suddenly, and while looking at the building, which was seemingly about to fall and disappear in the overwhelming waters, I saw one ot the front wln- dowi quickly thrown up. A man appeared at ed Dean, Professor Robert A. Gunn. Recognizing this fact, and taking in at a glance the entire situation, the vision ended. Where was I? When this symbolical representation wa» given me, 1 was in Orange, N. J. I had nestled down in the family circle, enjoyiug the first few days of u very much needed vacation. What did I do? At the breakfast table I related tuy vision. Next I prepared myself as soon «4 possible, and took an early train Into this city. -Then I proceeded straight way to the office of the Dean. Knowing him to be intellectually a full-blown scientist, with a decided agnostic tendency to gravitate away from things ami symbol» spiritual, 1 said to him nothing of my vlalon. But he was very glad to see me. He handed me some important papers that a gentleman had left with him for me. Instantly, I saw my work nnd, in a word, I gave up my entire vacation, to engage iu its accomplishment. Pending the decision of our appeal from the Special Term to the General Term of the Supreme Court. 1 proceeded lo raise? an endowment fund of #50,<i00, with a view, in case of an adverse decision, to going before the Board of Regent» of the State of New Y'ork, asking them for a charter for our College under a new name. By much personal influence, some traveling, and a good deal of visitation, I succeeded in obtaining (with Prof. Gunn's indispensable aid In some Instance»} tho amount«which each friend of tbecoliege had subscribe ed to tho jmrehane of the handsome property, No. 0 Kost Twelfth Ht., for the uses of the College. The nmounts for thl» purchase were originally subscribed as au Investment for a profit at six per cent, per annum. But in ob- lalning from each subscriber the ftihnmnuat of his subscription as n free gift to the endow- ment fund, the Trustees received a property which a prominent real oatate dealer in tills city estimated at 125/00. This work was proceeded with during July and August of last year. Thus wo«ram i the College building. whliffi could be appropriated to the uses and benefit of the College, hut which, otherwise, would Inevitably have-beeu put upon tho market and sold, aud-the money returned to the original subscribers, for this proceeding was the avowed purpose of the three Trustees to whom the title was conveyed lu trust for the College, The decision last autumn of the Supreme Court sustained the Court below; and thus our only course was next to appeal to the Court of Appeal»; and, in the meantime, lo work hard to procure a charter from the Board of Regents. Hoping that we should certainly obtain a charter with our #50,000, which had been partly paid in. aud the balance subscribed; nnd, pending thpse effort«, and not wishing to be " shut up " by the dominant Allopathic County Medical Society, which held the Supreme Judges under its thuinb.we resolved.to keep the *oliege "open" to a small, class during last winter and until the usual time of commencement. In the meantime Hie Hoard of Regents met in solemn session; Kiev duly received and acknowledged and considered our application; they lifted up their hands, and said: " YVe require the #50,000 Mia I) be. not In property, etc., but in muney>qr It» equivalent, etc.; therefore, a» your moirpy is already invested, except #7/100 represented by a bank certificate with the affidavit of the Deau to that effect, ice deelinef which Is another way of saying that the Regents, like tlio/judges, live and move and bare popularity' among the tnog- nates and nabobs of tbe distinguished Allopaths, with a Homeopath thrown in now and then just fontbe sake of spice, pellets, and good fellowship at the clubs. Rut a new trouble confronted the Board of Trustees jnst here and now namely; If we were not, aud If we had not been, duly Inrnr- K rated as a College, then we coaid not con- r diplomas of legal value. The Clerks of the Counties in different States would not recognize our degrees ns legal; hence our qjie hundred and twelve graduates, truly educated women and men. would hpve no legal stand - -lug, would be subject to arrest, and thrown head long out of practice. To meet till» exceedingly serious trouble which, if not remedied, would lead bo'h tho Trustees and our graduates into endless con filets we resolved to introduces bill Into the Legislature asking for the legalization of all degrees and diplomas granted by the United State«Medical College. But we did not wish to introduce this bill,' until our case had been argued before tho Judge«of.the Court of Appeal«. lu order now, dear reader, to understand the force of wligt follow«, you should bear in mind that Ufteitimtlon was this: (I) The wfard of llegegts had refused n«a charter. although we had the required #50,(100,for the most part In money and in property; (2) the case of our Dual appeal from the lower Courts hod not yet been reached and argued by Judge Fithlan and Senator Clinton in the Court of AppeaLs; (3) and, although, we had a bill prepared to legalize our diploma» to go betere ihe Legislature and Governor, we hesitated, waiting and hoping tho Judges would decide in our favor, aud thus settle with one stroke all our troubles. And yet It was already late,in the session of the Legislature to Introduce a bill, with hope of getting It passed. This wa» the situation when the following communication was vouchsafed. It was imparted psychophonically;that is, by impressions of voice, or sound«conveying words, plainly heard by the internal ear. It occurred oa Bundav and Monday mornings, between five and six o'clock in the still hoar before sunrise. I was at tho time in the home of Mr. C. 0. Poole. MeAuchen, N.

He answered; They can and they will evade all fulfillments on yonr part, so long as by you tbe people are kept la Igntwaace of tho superior educational ends contemplated by your College. They hnve the lognl power to circumvent your compliances by declining to 'approve,' and so on and ««forth." Mentally I said; 1 do not understand you. Please explain. " Regents (he replied) have Indefinite, and, therefore, unlimited power, embodied and concealed in these word»: *//ir ihall appear to the latiifactlan o f the Urgent«' also in these: In»ueh manner at the Urgent* mag approve.' With these phrases they can keep you out standing a life time at their closed door returning for answer, not to our «atis- faction: therefore, ice do not approve, Yes, believe me, Jackson, you all now walk in liie wrong path." Mentally I asked: Shall wc take no more steps to be legally organized? " It may be done In iho wisest way in response to the wishes of the people. To the people present, explain all the superior educational ends sought by your system, aud exhibit te them all the trial» yon haveencount> ered,"m'ou should know this: Judicial and Legislative functionaries, when at times they meet in^irtvate social conference, agree with one anothevslo oppose the inception and the muluphcatlolivm more orilinarg/ medical Colleges of any sjsirtol or class. Many Insti- tullons of inedicinehnw existing they desire to obliterate. I sympathize with them In this desire." Do the Judges regard our College as of this ordinarg class I asked in thought, * Bo you not. all of you. mean that, in ultimate development«, your Gbllege shall be superior to those exl8tfng?'r I answered: We certainly do mean what you say. " Then," he rejoined, "Why do yon not ex- plcltly and fully «furate fa<r jwopte teach them to grasp and to adopt your plenum of meaning. Before Regent«you appear asking them to institute another ordinarg College ot un'dli ijie (trut r-urgery; nml they uw m, that, seelug nothing in your avowed purposes bfr- yond selfish and ambitions tntereets nothing out of the usual path of collegiate education (in -which they wisely conclude too many medical HChoots already exist), they easily find something In your application for a charter which they do not approve. [Mr. Green was silent here. Next morning the subject was resumed as follows): Jackson! I say to you npw, fear not, because clouds of Injustice have gathered over your chosen word ' Eclectic!' Retain it. You mean Hint you (ail of yon) have discovered netr light, freedom of choice, liberty of judgment in prescription, The new light, your higher liberties, your better ends in medical research, you should offer to the people in public ashomnllcs; In free conventions called for the purpose, you all should combine lo signalize and emphasize your superior system and purposes. Instruct the people. Go to them. Tell them how, at what time, and by whom, you have been and are opposed. Explain tbe principles of unteeraat selection in Hie making and j)5**'t?f-'mt:aieine. Inform the peopla-fntiyr^expladi to the people the well-ascertained principle» you 'adrfpt.- Kx- pore the errors of your opponents. Conceal nothing. Secret things shall be revealed. Say your College Is needed because it is really E'cltelie; because It is. iu all departments Vo-educational: because It is vitally pro- ( retlive, and will eventually overthrow the Allopathic corporations In Ite onward march. Do you not soe that such a College cannot ho at this time incorporated in the State of New York? And still the people are ripe for a positive step with determination to Light. Take the advance step without concealment. Move openly among the people with perfect faith, nonsuit no policy born of fear. Love your fidlowmer. Appear iu no disguise, instruct the people. At some time, the Legislature of your own State, influenced by the people, will give you an act of Incorporation approved by the Governor. Take tho path I show you. Do not turn either way. Thus yonr trouble.» for your graduates will terminate iu a pronounced victory. Yonr uuccesafnl work for them will be the first triumph over organized and influential opponent*. They are strongly entrenched. Y'our own scattered forces will be far stronger and more uni led as you advance." In thought I asked here: Shall we go before the Legislature with our bill for benefit of our graduate»? *' Yes, he «aid. " But do not appear wjth arguments in Court of Appeals pending efforts in the Legislature." What do you say about our money-effort» *f last summer? I asked. 1 - And he replied: Do you not discern, Jack- son. that you all possess a property of value, which, as you all will see, can be disposed of or held to promote future use»?". Thus MUlilbepHychophon ie interview. Now, since that communication was received the Court of Appeals has decided that we are not an incorporated Medical College. But on tho 23rd of May, 1884, the'people of the Empire Htate in Legislature a»semuled declared, and the Governor approved, that all degrees and dl- K un* granted by the United States Medical ege prior to tula year, are equal in legal.value to the diplomas*conferred by any law fully constituted university or College in the State. This act of the Legislature became a law by receiving the Governor» signature. Bnt Jr Mr. Green from his high home is a true "seer," then we mult conclude that neither the Board of Regents nor the Legislature of this Stale, can be induced to place our College upon a corporate foundation. In conclusion I will say that Mr. Green's communication to me last March, I have not divulged to the Trustees, or to any member of the Faculty. They are of all shades of belief and doubt fa both politics and religion. 1 am, perhaps, the only thorough bred Spiritualist among them. So I intentionally concealed from them all the words of wlsdpni given from the supernal life. My own conduct In the '.premise*, I confess, has been largely Influenced by the spirit'«faithful Instructions. In justice to the membent-of the Harmonial Association at Steck Hall to show the world that they are true practical friend«of liberal medical education I will say that to sustain the Psychological Chair In the College, they have paid the Professor tbe annual amount promised: they have purchased and paid for #ljooo of College stock; tb*y bare subscribed 12,000 toward the endowment fnnd, of which sum they have paid in cash nearly #8,000; and beside«* this they generously aud cheerfully sustain the meetings at Stock Hall from September to June, now for several years. Of myself, allow me to eay a word, since the LogisUture Ind Goverbor have ie^atteeil my speelal degree and the uaualdlploma. Candid ly speaking, for personal uses and benefit*. I hod no need of the college discipline or study; but I had need of jnst sbeh a schooling for the sake of more effectiveness in matter* which in the near future may ennge some or my time and energy. My sta g in g os a student was only fair; nevertheless the Faculty an-d Trustees felt lawfully Justified in conferring upon me two degrees one Doctor of Medicine. the other Doctor of Anthropology.

Stebblns of Detroit, is active as ever in every work affecting the welfare of woman. In an open letter to the Detroit Journal, just before the Republican. Convention In Chicago, slie appealed for a suffrage plank In the platform of principles. The letter dosed thus: The higher and humaner civilization can never be reached without the recognition aud the help of woman. Morally yon perceive this, intellectually and logically vou acknowledge It, but practically, heretofore. In a place like this, jrtnj have stood dumb before the question, which' IW'V BM/WJ UUUIV Uv IVIP Mir UlivollDUi WUlvU., «ria0 i. it *». Is no longer a question.

After the convention and the bolt from the party by the Independent Republicans, Mrs. Stebbins sent to the Detroit 1 oit and Tribune, a letter on the " Inconsistencies of Certain Reformer'. which was pertinent and timely.

There Ik, without a doubt, a grpat social ferment taking place within society, n ferment which is only partially visible upon 11» snrfilce. This Involves such question* as are treated under various lo ad-, ilk»- labor ami capital, progress and poverty (see Henry GporgPTTifTr-Kellogg, and others), social reform, etc. Among these most important ones.

It goes without saying that there will he much useless dlsciisslon-and many mistakes. It cannot be that society will ever result from n mathematical arrangement, as figures moved upon a chess-board. For there is the outgrowth of the soul within, which constantly puts out surprises. Like a shoot at the top of a young tree, no one can tell at what point a leaf nud will develop into n strong branch, or where a whorl of leaves will nt first give great promise only to wither and drop off.

But jwe can study the tendencies of its organic growth, and learn more uud more of the heav. only plan which*must be archetypal in the spiritual realm.

There Is something peculiarly soothing in the Military reflections of elderly-and spirit- iiully-nilnded people, which I am certain the mere church creedlst and worldling cannot aud do not enjoy; or. in other words, the Spiritualist Itl his woliutry rambles never feels alone. Of late I treated myself to n solitary stroll in the suburbs of Brooklyn. EJl».. glad to escape the noise and bustle of the city. I found myself again, hut with Infirm footsteps, treading the same grassy sward of my boyhood. My rambles brought me in the vicinity of the obi " Brook.School House, still in a good state of prtttrv&tlon, owing, no donbtrto ItH having huig since been occupied as a humble dwelling. Now, there is nothing In it«present appearance to attract the attention of an ordinary passer, hot to me, the.reminiscences they reproduced after seventy-six years fi80i>>. were very Interesting. I could* tell Incidents of the boyhood of the elder lliixpers, James and John; of their wrestling within it» sacred walls with the difficulties of Noah Webster'»»pelting book, and the arithmetical problem* of Dilworth. But no! HuBst not tell tales out of school. James find John have tong since gone where the good printer* go. Hut the incident that struck me most forcibly on the present occasion, was the following, as it certainly had a»ptr itual basis, now belter understood. It was one of those pleasant oay* la autumn, when sminner, as It were, wa* making».spasmodic effort to prolong her waning supremacy. The hour of twelve bad arrived and the school for the morning wa» dismissed. and the window* were thrown open for ventilation. The boys, myself among them, had betaken themselves in a cluster, to an adjacent apple orchard, to gather falleu, half-frozen apples, and the girls to gambol on the still remaining sward surrounding one portion of the school house. Looking In the direction of the house, one of "the girls exclaimed: Now, look at that. Now, that is too bad; there Is Edward Jones walking ovt*r our desk* with hi* muddy shoes, and now he Is looking ont of the window and toughing at uh! f t would like to know what right he nas on the girls side any way? - **1*11 just go lh and give him a piece of roy mind," said Marla M., and all the girls followed, no donbt, nursing their wrath to keep It warm. Arrived at the school house, what was their surprise to find it noiseless and empty, and hoys nor Kdward Jones within; but they osed he Was in, hiding somewhere. ie afternoon school gathering brought the -boys and girls again together, and the girls opened nnsparlngly upon my playmate, Edward Jones, accusing him of disobedience to school discipline. Dispute* ran high, the boys, with myself, testifying that be had never left our company In the adjacent orchard, and the girls os stoutly asseverating he was laughing at them out of the raised window. The old Quaker lady with whom 1 was boarded, and to whom these wordy contradiction* of the children had been rehearsed, solemnly remarked to her neighbor: * 1 have heard of such things before,*' and shook her head and I know it-mean* some- next day wintry, fid ward feeling seriously sick. the teacher improvised a las) for film near the store. At dismissal at school* he returned home to his widowed mother, about a mile distant, and wa* found.lead in bed by her side in the morning. Their family doctor announced that the bor had died of mortification of the bowels induced by eating excessively of frozen apples. Another spiritual evenjconnected with tbe recollections of this humble, unpfetenuons seal of learning, was the magical core of one of Ita pupils, Richard Burrows, who, through some Injury to bis foot, was stricken with this stubborn affection, lockjaw.

The church has taken no note of advancing knowledge. Geology, evolution, psychology and Spiritualism, with their knowledge so deep and high are all denounced, because, it Is Bald, they prove parts of the IHblo to be false. Men demand that their questions bo answered, their doubts removed, the authenticity of tbe book proved, the Tory right of the church to an existence to bo tested and the church is silent. It answers all questions with a text still, and only admits debate about the meaning of such text, when tho questioner Is known to bo orthodox. The Inquirers do not generally leave the cbtricli, but they doubt, always doubt. When 6Bms one like Ingeraoll conies, they gladly pay to hear a clear, vigorous statement of what they have already thought, and then back to the church again,- believing no more and no less, but really afraid to leqve It. Though reason condemns the dread, they are tinder the Influence of the old teachings; but their faith has gone; their delight in the church Is now only the support of a party; the Christian hope has become more and more shadowy; they are Christian Infidels, the natural outcome of the church's false teachings. The church teaches doctrines that cannot be true, proclaims as facts things domonstra: lily false, glories In a materialism which It calls spiritual; and he that doubts is d&fnn- ed. la all the answer given to open-eyed observers of facts in external nature and In their owwjconsdousnoss, men who want those deductions tested and error pointed out. If error there be. Right there the church leaves them. It will not answer because, perhaps, it cannot. It Is true as Mr. Beecher electrified the church by say lug a few years ago, "The chief hindrance to the apread of the Gospel, has been'the Christian Church. The Democratic Convention. Mosaic Varnish. Who makes the Infidels? Probably the best abused man among the churches to-day le Robert G. Ingersoll; for he Is, deemed a power In the land. It la as nothing to the church that here aud there In this and other countries, ministers hitherto orthodox, reject this or that doctrine, doubt this or that Interpretation. These are only Isolated outbreaks of a deep-seated disease. The entire supporta oî the church areliodey-oombei^ with skepticism, ready to yield tinder the fluperabundeut weight of dogmas quietly ignored by many church members, openly rejected by many more, contemned and derided by those whom the church would win from the world. Universal skepticism reigns, a paralysis of faith outside and Inside, the church 1b beset with active and passive foes. For this the church wrongly holds Ingeraoll and his school responsible. It Is a mistake; for as one preacher said recently: Where Ingeraollmakeson^ infidel the church makes five hundred." Little use would It be for the genial orator to laugh or sneer; vaip alike bifl hamor or hie pathos if ho did uot volco the unspoken thought of hh hearers. Because he does this, and does it better than they could hope to do, men and women flock to bear him. lugereoll and every one who has power over the people, only has it in proportion to the degree in which he ntterathelr unspoken thoughts, or brings chaotic perceptions into something' like order. Hence the huge crowds that flock to hear the great Agnostic may well appall the church. Church members are there, already mors than half lufldole, mads so by church teachings, and alt the orator has to do la to group their thoughts, and give them a reason for the unbelief that Is In them. The church begins the work, lugersoll only shows the reasonableness of their doubts, and he does It clearly, mirthfully, pathetically, effectively. What has the church done to thus destroy lia prestige, what have been the instruments of Its moral suicide? It has taught errorl Tea, but chiefly It bis refused to answer attacks on the errors it has taught. Looking ever away back to the dim past for Ha Illumination, pinning Its faith on records of doubtful authenticity, known to have been BOmetlmea ** theologically translated, re. vised again and again, bat, la their English drew at least, always doubtful; then insisting that no absurdity, no contradiction, nothing The warning given by the J o u r n a l to the press and people of Iowa, together with the circulation of the Personal Experience" letter from Woodhuli s UrrAfy, made It highly necessary for the freo-iove Invader«to attempt to break the force of the crushing blow. Through the efforts of Hull, Severance A Co., and another brass baud, a motley crowd of curiosity seekers and small boy«, Including Dobson, D. P. II., and his squad, were gathered at the opera house on the evening of June 10th, where thsy were harangued at length by Hull aud Severance. Referring to the "Personal Experience" letter, Hull concluded the best way was to declare ft had been mangled aud made to misrepresent him a barefaced falsehood, not a word was changed. Then after rambling over a field of falsehood, he seemed to think he.must further varnish the letter, and this is how he did It as reported verbatim In the Makouol^eta Excel Hot; She (Mr*.

The desirability of, even the urgent necessity for, a new deal wss unanimously urged; but os to who should bo the leaders la this saving work, there was great diversity of opinion. The Convention woe made up of bh lino looking a body of men os over came together and the proceedings were In many respects a vast improvement over similar gatherings In the past. The platform baa some good honest planks, and some that are oak or one side and cottonwood on the other madd to suit the varying tastes of voters. Grover Cleveland for President and T. A. Hendricks tor Becond place was the result, as all the worionijwb ere this. Now the contest between tlioitwo great contending parlies will begin In earnest. There 1» just no^- more " kicking" among tha wire-pullers of the Democratic party than there was among their Republican brethren after Blaine and Logan were nominated; whether this disaffection will culminate In open rebellion against the machine " remains to bo seen, but probably when November arrives It wijl see these recalcitrants repentant and with the straight ticket In hand inarching up to the ballot box. Cleveland was not the choice of the fossils, and this very significant fact will make him etronger at the polle; forfefhe average voter, whatever his politics may be, ts dally growing more restive nnder the party whip Bnd more inclined lo assert his Independence.

Many people are likely to be attracted to this show of moral monstrosities through morbid jurloslty. His aggregation of spiritual dwarfs and frauds will excite the same zest for a sight as does the side show of a circus, with Its two-legged donkey, boa-constrictor and trick monkey; and the average standard of Intellect and morals of the patrons of the two shows wilt bathe same.

It is stated that on the afternoon cf July 12th, Mrs, Langtry tested the powerq of Lula Ilurat on the stage of Wallack s Theatre, Now Yo^k City. She stepped upon the. stage wear* inern-wiiito dress and a sea-green tinted sun shade, with green trimming. She was gracious Bnd stately with the Georgia girl. *W1I you give me a mild test of your power?" she sold, after a little space. Yes," sabl'miss Hurst s manager, thegentlest test wo know of." Mrs. Lanotry held n chutr-wlth Its back against her cheat. " I am vefy strong, yoq Jl find," she said. Miss Hurst put her hand* over Mrs. Langtry, touching the chair with the tips of her Angers. The women looked Into ouch other'«eyes for an lurinnt, then there wss a rush. Mrs. Langtry was forced backward, and before she bud time to cry ont, she fell against the lower upright In the ballustrade In the stairway leading np ont of the kitchen scene In,May Blossom. The column broke, and Mrs. Langtry fell to the floor. Half a dozen men, supposing she was badly hart,' ran to her assistance. She wo«quickly on her feet again, however, and when noted If she would like any further test, re-" plied that she was satisfied. Meeting a frieifit ut the theatre exit on tho way home, she exhibited her torn dress, ripped acroos the back aud on tho right sleeve. " I ve been with that girl just two set^nds," she said, laughing. > Dr. William A, Hammond says that the performances of Lula Hurst, the young woman from Georgia who mores heavy objects against tho efforts of several strong men to press them down, are dne largely to theinfla- enee of suggestion In the minds of the men, and to uncommon mascular strength. Before attempting to explain what occurs In her presence, It will be well to ascertain definitely just what does take place. Dr. Hammond Is something of a theorlzer, and Is liable to adjust his facta to his theories rather than hlb theories to his fact«. Index. Yes! Hammond Is more " than liable to adjust his facts to his theories; he is not worthy of credence In these matters unless supported by thestrongestdollateralevidence. GENERAL NOTES. Tlcky s».vicar.

Dr. Koch, the eminent German physician, summoned to the aid of France in resistance to the spread of the disease, now proclaims that tho scourge raging at Toulo» and Marseilles Is undoubtedly of the true Asiatic type, and that ho has abandoned all hope* of confining the ravages to tbe Toulon district.

The man tig oment ha* made apod al arrangement* with the railroads of that section, and a large attendance Is expected and a good time anticipated. Good speaker* have.been engaged, and good mediums are expected to bo in attendance. The prediction of Prof. Kocb. the cholera expert, that the French scourge would reach Germany and ultimately spread throughout Europe, was partially verified on July bth, by an official announcement that one death from the dread disease had occurred at Constantino, in the Duchy of.baden, and two other cases have been reported. The announcement has created considerable alarm throughout Germany, nndiyrira sanitary pro- cantionaandjjtrirt^lm rahtlne rule* are being KHtfoFcTir In order tp prevent tho Introduction of the epidemic In other parts of the empire. At a Into meetliig of Spiritualist* at the Court of Appeals room, Town Hall, Saratoga Spring«, N. Y President Horn delivered a fine Inspirational lecture written by Mrs. Horn In an entranced condition. The address gave n rations! and delightful description of heaven from a Spiritualist stand-point, sharply contrasting with the current theological view of the great goat toward which humanity i* «trnggllng. The Saratogn Eayle says: "Mrs. Horn has reason to feel proad pi her fine development, as the lecture throughout was an able and scholarly production, rich In imagery ond vividly descriptive." The exercises were admirably supplemented by platform testa through the mediumshlp of Dr. Mill*. Boston has had In court tbe case of a gentleman of high social friending, the son of a great Jurist anil an eminent lawyer and scholar, who had been Imprisoned in an insane asylum, but had regained his freedom.

The only delusion under vvhleh ho tabored wan his belief that he heard Incessantly the voices of unseen penkers. Two men. he declared, whom ho had disobliged, had conspired to annoy hint In this way, and by means of elec- trlc&i-twwef'conveyed the sounds to hi* ear.

21 JU LY r e l i g i o -p h i l o s o p h i c a l 7j o u r n a l. For ft* Baílalo Fall wiptilcal Journal. Ur. tí. W. King1* Itcpljr 1«Hudson T attle» Ylews la Reference to tlio Regular Practitioners. I join Brother Tattle In hln Hregret that we do not more fully accord In our views, and am with him against anything distinct lrelv personal, 1 am sorry, however, that he has "neither inclination nor tim e to tully discuss what he has provoked and called extremely detrimental to public welfare." If a system, theory, practice or organization, which has, in the opinion of many sound pcof )Ie, been the direct dr Indirect cause of sen ting several presidents of the United States and millions of other cltlzemt to premntnre graves, and of the death of more union soldiers than rebel# caused, and of plncing moro upon tjiepensionlist than the combined hardships of'tiaftdoefl not demand the attention of a writer, what should? I will close this paragraph by stating that 1 do not wish him to take oil or put on any qualifiers of his wonlh, or do anything lo particularly Í fleas«me; but 1 desire him to do all be can, or the public welfare. I do not wish to bo understood, as I have been charged, os claiming that ail improvements in medicine came from the Irregulars." if 1 know anything abont myself 1 cannot be ao unjust. When I ask. What the condition of regulars'* would be,if the Irregulars had not caused a change iu public opinion? I expect the same answer that would he given if I should ask. What would orthodoxy be to-day If there never had been any heretics? Mr. Tuttle has expressed a great point when he says that * the great body of regular physicians are governed by a stringent code of ethics. fie should be equally as well informed about homeopathic and eclectics. as classes, having no more secrets than allopathlsts. The published transactions of their societies are proof In this mat- 'ter. The great body of regular physicians" do not test a physician s worthiness of professional fellowship by asking; is he honest. moral, intelligent, successful and quail- fled? bat ask: Has tie subscribed to a striu- gent code of ethics? With such code and unreasonableness, such body of regnlar physicians walk Into legislative halls and a-jt to monopolize the medical business. They profesh to have conscientious scruples about advertising, yet want to be legally advertised at the public expense, now can Brother Tuttle not favor Doctor's Laws, and bo opposed to 'selfish greed "ashe claims, and. at the same time, praise " a stringent code of ethics for.doctors, which embraces neither love. Justice uor the- public welfare? It is not fair to claim that a party of men are not selfish, secretive nor wrong, who will not consult,. at the request of a third party, with other men who are morally, intellectually and legally qualified as physicians. As I wish to have the readers of our articles compare the pharlftalcal code of the American Medical Associating, which Is againjt consultations with irregular practitioners and has received the approval of Mr. Tattle, with the liberal, courteous codes found in the transactions of the homeopathic and eclectic medical societies of the State of New York, I quote from them as follows: No difference in views on subjects of medical principles and practice should be allowed to influence a physician against consenting to a consultation with a fellow practitioner. The very object of a consultation Is to bring together th o s e who may, perhaps, differ in their views of the disease and its appropriate treatment, In the hope that, from a comparison of different views may be derived a just estimate of the disease and a successful course of treatment," " We believe that knowledge makes Its possessors liberal and fraternal, aud not partisan dr exclusive. We accordingly accept no code of ethics which Is at variance with the golden (UFixitu, Whatsoever ye would that men should do to yon, do ye oven so to Ibein;*" Mr, Tuttle claims that at the best medical colleges" (without doubt meaning those that endorse a osle of ethics which is too stringent for human beings) hydropathy, homeopathy and all other systems are reviewed, and everything permanent aud true In "them is retained and forms a part of regular practice to doy, as before being drawn out of ft. Bow, yes how did new sects or systems spring up If the old one possessed and practiced everything permanent and true? My dear brother must have neglected or overlooked quite a chapter In medical history. He should think that reformers of every kind have helped to make the beet part of history. To claim ail reformatory or progressive measures for obi school physicians. Is as weak as his claim about their stopping lift» practice of blood-letting without an Imperative public demand. The bleeding lancet was laid Bálde becaqse its ban effects were made so apparent, and while its friends were contending for Its/ nse. I do wish Brother Tuttle had told-our. readers, when on that point, what Injnriousor depleting agents (which he calls 'remedié* ") his style of doctors " discovered " abontl the time they gave up the practice of killing with the lancet without -» '" t to the 'Meast change " in their theorv " of killing. It Is an just to not glte reformers or irregulars" the credit of substituting curative things for the killing lancet. Reformers did not become reformers merely for opposition, any more than Spiritualists become such In order to tear down orthodoxy. If the students rrom Mr. Tattle s best medical col* -'leges" have learned all about everything permanent and true" In medicine, why do they not manifest more*common-sense In their practice, or notecase the slaughter that may be noticed In th e lt pathway? Take quinine, whisky and morphine away from the mwt of them, and they can do bnt very little in the practice or their profession until they get some Instructions from reformers; True reformers will profit by sad experience, bnt regular bigots or stupid conservatives will stick to their blunders on no better gtound tban a He well stock too Is as good as the truth, and because they are governed by a stringent code of ethics * which never relieved a pain or prolonged a life. Such are bad facts to look at. and did Irregutars cause them? I f IftufoAn TrtttlA ivilltri hflyb tuvan w h a t I rejected and curative articles should be put In their places, even if the huge saddle-bags are required to hold them. Too powerful drugs are foolishly called curative because patients often endure them. A child once swallowed a quantity of hooks and eyes without any bad effect. There was a planing result, as they caused the expulsion of a large quantity of worms, yet, who would think of prescrlbingjiooks and eyes os a vermifuge? A physician should*not prescribe what Is very liable to injure or kill If It does* not care. With a hammer, when a boy, iu trying to kill a fly upon a jng. I spoiled the Jug. Such leason of experience 1have often thought of since I became a physician, and consequently have kept from Retting desperate and spoiling diseased bodies while trying to aid nature In the removal of disease. I have been thirty-four years in the practice of medicine niiif never Have prescribed a dozen doses of morphine. I prefer to quiet than to kill pain. Pain never killed a per sou. It is the cause of pain that kills, if the patient dies without taking morphine or any other deadly drug. 1 am satisfied that it does pot cure, but weakens the recuperative powers of the system. By noticing tha good effects of nervines and removers of obstructions, and observing many cases like the following! I have objected to the employment of opium, except in incurable cases; In Decern ber, 1881, a *regular " and trained.physician " who votes every time he has a chance to In favor of " a stringent code of ethics," gave a strong man two hypodermic injections of morphine for neuralgia, who was consequently put to sleep and slept abont forty- two hoars. lie has been a physical wreck ever slues, without enjoyment and of little use except to demonstrate false science. May, IS83,»pother strong man died from the effects of an overdose of morphine because It was not prescribed by a physician. In July, 1883, a lady fell from some steps and was unconscious for a short tiqie. When consciousness returned there was some puhi/ A doctor, who never learned nor practiced the theory that pain better be'endured tban to destroy the power of the system to remove the cause of suffering wnacalm, and he gave the patient a hypodermic injection of morphine. Quletand sleep followed,which proved to be the quiet and sleep of death. After receiving the morphine she had two Injuries to endure and could not endure both. If the physician had done what some Irregular physician, who thinks moreof common sense than he does of the nonsense taught about pain and morphine in most of the regular colleges, would have done, probably his patient would not have dlpij. If most ql4rugg «le were to speak out about opium, they would slate as one did In New York City id a newspaper reporter, and from whose report I extract as follows: "You would be greatly surprised if 1 should show you a list of my customers who are in the habit of purchaslug'tbls drug- I do not mean those for whom -it is prescribed by physicians, but thocqnrho use It as regularly as they would tobacco. These slaves of, the opium habitcoiiiprise lawyers,artists, Breach- ere, merchants and all kinds of mechanics, tradesmen and laborers. Women, as well ns men, are slaves to the opium fiend. 1 think physicians nre much to blame for people acquiring the opium habit. They are so willing to prescribe it to patients who could get along without It, Should not the world awake to the importance of such testimony, and not remain for ever stupid about the effect* of opium? Where Is the evidence that "At the best medical colleges, referred to by Mr. Tuttle, there Is anything being done In a permanent and trne"form to stay the ravages of the "opium flen<tr Although Bro. Tuttle s views and mine do not fully accord." I hope we hqve excited some-gopd thought* among our readers. - - fi. W. Kin»;, M. D. Saratoga'S prl rigs. N. Y. Mr. Franklin H.

Mr. Westover Is a prominent lawyer of this city: ^ The following touching address was read by eioulient tribute to lier memory: life, must ever further argued that atty form of faith to be successful, must lie one of Ideas; that lie facts must be demonstratable once. He aald that a century ago John Murray advanced a new problem nr Idea In religion, tliat every human soul will progrem la a future life and ultimately become happy, and tliat the Fnlveranilrt denomination hail dung to this one Idea. Intrinsically true la lleejf, hut not having any other truth that essentially differ» from orthodoxy; In the last i uorter of a cealurr It had wen lla cardinal dogma accepted almost generally by various orthodox clergymen, and ns a power Unirep«]Ism ta> *th«intricate strai fast succeeding among other eltele forma of fakir: He argued that Spiritual!«!* would neter Ire a powerful ecclesiastic organixatlon; that those who attend our public mewling* are compose«! of people who have become dissatisfied with the dogma* and the creed* of orthodoxy, and n epiril of unmet had led them to our spiritual meetings to «eo If there was any truth In Die claims of 8 u ritual I»in.

Ho argued that if Spiritualism I* to be respected Jn the future ll must eliminate from it* fold all per- eons who shnulat- mndlmtvdiip, and not encourage or endorse such ;terson* in any way.

S Ä are regarded by many -Spiritualist«In Jan Francisco, 1 would be deceiving my reader*. In a ca*«like this. I felt that the whole tniih should be elate«!, or uooe, It Is an undeniable fact, tbit a Hum tar of Ibfl better daw of SplrilHjiJLittji in San Francisco are very susplrimis of the phenomena occurring In presence of these two ladle«, anil are of opinion that I wo* deceived by I Item. Prior to the publication of my article, I was cautioned by several to l* careful in my endorsement of [heir iiie>tiuro*)ii[i1the manifreliition* luring In their opinion fraudulent; and «luce I la publication others have told m* Hint, In their opinion. I was impoaedupon J»y their hum buggery. In every case I find, though, that tho» so asserting hare never seen the phenomena characterized by hem at 1>ogus. They J udgtt lb e parti» according to Ihrlr past associations, which' have not lieeit of an eminently favorable character, oousorltug, a* they have, with the fraudulent ele- mcnlsor San Francisco Splrituall*in, Fonrfnced as I was ofttin genuine character of Ihe phenomena «n by me, It tiecame my duly to publicly avow the fact ami glee the parch In«tturtvlMilch wa* Justly duo them. Justice to Ihetn demanded this, but justice to the nubile and to mysrif domaodsd IhatUio unfavorable «Id* of the matter be also unseated. and «o I slate] both; the favorable luring given In detail and the unfavorable, In case of Mr*. Reid, very»lightly, omitting much of the details. Examining my article. It is seen that the only thing narrated of Mr*. Reid, lured on my own knowledge. Is the proceeding» or lb* n-anos therein deecrll<e«l H r «oilier few Hu m cuicftmlug her a re simple statements of thing«told me by other*, and I uulinclty»tale that I had been thus inform**! My words are three: **I have been credibly Informed that Mr*. Jbrid has been known to personate spirits,... Other things,seriously reflecting on her moral character. arecoufldenuj alleged against her." Th*ee sulemeuu are true, I have been no luforme«!," and such are confldenuy alleged against lier." 'Wbellier the allegations are true or not, it waa Im- ihiwdble for me to elate, as I «lid not and do not know. I simply stated the fact of their existence, and did not vouch for their truth. Almost any one of the leading worker* of the hell«cloaa of Spiritualists In this dty con testify to the existence of these allegations against Mr*. Reid, nod an subs Lon Hale" what 1 Bid concerning her. Parties whom 1 had sver fonnil truthful, and In whom 1 had confidence, bad told me, In a positive manner, of various mailers reflecting on Mr*. Held, and I had found similar narrative* largely current In the community both among Spiritualists and noa-splrituallsts. I knew nothing of her of my own' knowledge, and. very naturally, the wide prevalence of.three unfavorable opinions concerning her, rendered me very auspicious of her t«ychic power* In spite, however, of liieae unfavorable circumstance*, 1 Wo* convinced of her genuine nee* u a psychic, and In Ju*ile«to hot ao etatm, at the earn«time making brief reference to the unfavorable accounts in circulation in tbe community, and which had reodfred me-very suspicious of her genuineness. I purposely -refrain*-1 from giving the details of the thing* alleged against her, merely making a general statement I presume n<> one will deny the existence of these opinions ana stories about her In Han Francisco, ana that existence was all I stated aa true. Therefore my state- men la need no aubetanuatlon, as I never vouched for.the truth of the allegations. Tbe iadj 1st«be congratulated upon having such warm champions In Han Jo»' where she bos lived so long, ncnl such positive testimonials to her good character. It la much more satisfactory to believe good than evil of any one, and I am always pleased to learn of the good conduct of any medium or psychic, especially of a lady. I am sure I sincerely hope that the excellent diameter given her Is rully deserved, and that the same may lie truthfully ascribed to her daring ail her future Ufa. It 1^ well that the JocuRAl, baa published the statement of the allegations (gainst h*{, though they may be unrounded, sin«* Unas afforded an opportunity of their public denial and the presentation of rebutting evidence In her favor. These stories are certainly In wide circulation In this city, greatly to the lady * disadvantage If nntnta and by thl* means the bae Iwen given the fit of a widely-read denial. Since the denial has been made I have made diligent term Irle* as to the ertesi facta In tbe matter. Those making the allegation* adhere to their truth, and otben have repeated and cred-. I P 1...>ie partita to San Francisco tel! me that they ara positiva that them, evidencing an extensive circulation enoe. On toe other hand, other reliable pirtlm In they are false, and that Mr* Retd Is a good, tone woman. In this conlllrt of evidence I find It very duucull to arrive at any decided opinion, 1 aineere- r hope and wuh that the latter are correct, and the 'Iona false. In the matter of tbe charge i _t her character, we should, I think, render the hvetdirt,"not.proven." If ebete Innocent, it Is probable that tbe nature of her awociauons baa bad much to db with Ux origination and circulation of Um stori» about ber; tbe' elemento surrounding bar were bad, though she, herself, was not of that character. My reference to ber aepanmon tram her husband w ianot intended M atty reflection upon bar, sin«many excellent women are similarly situated.

24 RELIGIO-PIIILOSOPHICAL JOURNAL. J U L Y 19, Continual from rim Po#* day u e the same hand write n likecondetnoa ttod of thtwo who were «coffers of modern Spiritualism. Mrs. Lillie asserted that she had seen six mediums, controlled by six different spirits, «peaking In six dilterent languages, and atnof them uneducated in any of the language» which they ^ *oke. Table tinning was another roan If es.latio u of modern spiritual power, and it wan ii manifestation or the «ame power which enabled one of old to spit upon the day and upply It to the eye* of the blind man. thus reuorlug his eight. It was not the mud I hat worked the cure, hut the spiritual power of the operator There was not a Christian present, Mr*. Lillie said, who did not believe that story, because It was old enough to be believed. Hut hnlrlluallsin is said to be too new to be believed. 11 must be laid away between the leave* of a book for 1 soil years or more, and then It would be easy of digestion. "Who rolled away the wloue from the door of the sepulchre?*1 asked Mrs* Lillie. 'Some say two angels, some say two young men. I believe both, because 1 believe' that they were the ministering nugels ap- polnted to roll away the stone." Mrs. Lillie closed by assuring her hearers that the day was coming when they would be glad to clasp the hands of the Spiritualists and would eagerly ask for an explanation of. the mystery of materialized manlfimtation*. The Hev. Ktban Whitney then took the pint- form and look up the argument for the negative-side of the question. Ho began by m - nounclng his adherence to the command of Fajit, who hsim, "Preach the Word, am! wdd he pro M»*edtn try the arguments they hod heard nytîiè-word of God. He did not deny the' manxestjitions, but claimed that there were two Kinds of spirits. The Hlble said there were false prophets, and these are they that have gone after false prophets, misled by false spirits. "Let us go back/ said Mr. Whitney, to the creation of man. How did God make man? In Ills own Image, out of the dost of the ground. And there ho lay, a ner- - - * l - - *- la, fc body, and the clairvoyant sees, the angel hands of those who are (driving to release the spiritual from the natural body.until the work Is completed.and the spirit Is carried away to rest in the Spirit world." This closed the discussion, and the Chairman aputfunced that Mrs. Lord and Mr, Matthews would give a few manifestations of spirit (lower. Sirs. Lord, after a brief address, stepped down from the platform and said ehe would speak to a few only In the audience. She asked those who wanted her to tell them about their friends in tho Spirit- world to raise their hands, saying she wanted only those who were strangers to her. Dozens of hands went up all over the room. Stepping In front of an old gentleman, she "Seven spirits come here tonight to see you. a father and six children. One died of consumption, one by accident, one of fever far awiy from home, and one went away ami was never beard from afterward. Your uioth-^ er wore her hair very plain, llkoaljuakcn.1».- nnd a little apron." The gentleman said the lady was right; that he did not know her, and that he was hot a Spiritualist. To a Indy Mrs, Lord said: ythere comes the.spirit of a man who says he wants to talk to his wife. He bring* a beautiful child with him-»that has not been long In the spirit laud. Here comes four of your father s family. The original family consisted of eight. There are five in the gplrlt world. n v,, Tho lady said it was all true. Mrs. T.ord spoke to a number of others, la most of which cases she wns said to he mainly correct, but in one or two instances she failed, notably with an old gentleman who bad been invited forward from the baek part o r the room by the Chairman, and with whom she labored long to convince hint that fthe could tell him nil about seventeen of his friends, some ui whom lilid beeu dead twenty-five and thirty feet man-head. body, limbs, eyes, hands, feet, heart, lungs jnst as perfect a man as he was before Godureathed into him tho breath of -life and he became a living soul. And wlmt did God do to set the machinery in motion? Breathed Into his nostrils tho breath of life. That was all. Take out the breath, and what i# man? The body returns to the earth Just aa It was before the creation, and the breath returns to God who gave it. That to where Adam Is to night-mingled back with the dust of tho earth.",... Mr. Whitney, proceeding, declared that there was no hope for mankind except In the resurrection of the body, and said that there was not a single sentence in the Bible that said that man ever died and went to heaven, or ever will go. Yet ministers tnlk of friends, tn heaven, while the poor, heart-broken mother weep» for them In the grave. Christ died and was burled. After three days he arose from the grave. At the tomb of Lazarus he said, Roll away the stone. And when the atone waa rolled away, he said to Lazarus. "Come forth." If Lazarus had been In heaven, and not In the grave, would lie not hav^said, Come down." Instead of "Come forth? bo with the resurrection of the widows son a genuine resurrection. And what said Jesus to his sorrowing apostles? "VYhlther I go ye cannot come." in the acts, it is said of the good David, who had been dead hundred» of. years, that he ww not yet dead. Mr. Whitney Baid that the word soul, which waa synonymous with body in the original, occurred 3o0 times in the Bible, aud that it waa applied to men, fishes, birds, beasts, reptile», and every living thing. It was also said in the Bible that Christ gave hla soul aa a redemption for Bln. Abraham afeo took wltb.hlm all the sonis he had gotten. Th«r-word immortal, Mr. Whitney said, occur/ed only once In the entire Bible, and that Was ia the first chapter of Timothy and the sevinteenth verse, yet In prayer meetings men were continually talking about ''immortal souls never dying, immortal souls," and all the preposterous nonyefhen Mr. Matthews took the platform and closing hl» eves he «aid; The first object l see is the spirit of a man with light hair, blue eyes, and prominent cheek bones. He says he passed away with con mint pt Ion. He brings the spirits of three children with him, and says he has left three behind for Ills wife to care for. And ho says he wants to say to her thgt he is satisfied with the steps she has tbken for the children, and Is glad he was able to Impress her mind so os to cause her to take the step. 1» there any one here who recognizes the picture? A lady dreased m deep mourning said she recognized it, all but the description of her husband. Mr. Matthews modified the description somewhat, and said that when her husband died she put her hands on his forehead, and that was the first she knew he was dead, l!e asked her If that was true, and ehe buried her face in her hands, too much overcome to answer. Subsequently the lady told a Union reporter that what Mr. Matthews said was all true, that he could not have known about It and that she was not a Spiritualist. She sahl it was not so much the description of her husband as U was the telling of the exact number of children she had lost, because nobody bnt herself Bnd her dead, husband knew that. Mr. Matthews then described two more " intelligences which he said ho saw In the back part of the room, bat In both instances when he called for tho recognition of the picture. ho was told that such a person had been there, but had gone. There will be another similar meeting next Monday night atrthe same place. man Is to He In tbs grave, or In a seml-som- noient state, until the last great day. when our hid frames are to he brought forth from the tombs, or nut of tho depths of ocean, or gathered from the winds ami element«, and quickened by tho return of the long absent spirit. Hence has arisen the dread of dentil. We are chilled by the prospect of the gloom of Hades, a dismal region of shadows, with no real life, nor aught of the joys that make life a pleasure au abstract existence- mere self-consdousnefis, and nothing more, a memory atnl an anticipation. But wo do not so understand eternal truth. We never really cease to live. Death Is not an accident which has befallen the race. It Is a process as purely rial oral as when the butterfly emerge» from the chrysalis. It Is no more fraught with strangeness or mystery than when the grain bursts forth Into the tender blade. It may. indeed, be unduly precipitated by accident, violence, or disease. Hut when normal, it comes not until the ripeness of age, when all tftlftgs are ready and nature Inis riwrlls course. The spirit Is ripened and the form is dropped, like the husk from ripened fruit. But even when the change comes iu the earlier years of life, thi' I in iiriturei spirit is received, nurtured and fully tovelppeil In conditions favor- Htile lo progreh/«.n'and may we not hope that the sins and folllea of life may ho finally overcome by that divine love which ncvertaileth, even In tli" world to come? All of u* have friends upon thflfjrilter shofiu to greet us as we. In turn, gather with them there. They are hidden from our view, bnt still they live hi the sunny dime of the Morning Laud, In homes beside the streams that ever flow upon the heavenly landscape. There Is no death. Perhaps a few days or mouths of sickness, in which tho outer man periaheth perhaps a tenumrary unconsciousness, from which we awaken to sleep no more. It t* difllcnlt to dwell upon this theme In a tame and prosaic strain. The spirit Is elevated aud inspired oh we think of human do«tiny in all its greatness. How carefully sjiould wo live, that wo fall not to gather the best fruits of our immortality, bo that when our work Is ended, we may be up and away. "Wlieje Ihe faded flower «tall freshen, freshen never more to fad«. Where the shaded sky «tall brighten, Brighten never more to fade. There Are Xo Dead. But M touching the resurrection of tho dead, have you out read that which was ipoken unto you by I indorine, I am the Godot Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jnoob? God Is not the God of the d«d, but of the living. Word» of Jetut, sense Mr. Whitney s half hour expired before he had got half through, and he wanted more lime, but the audience refused to grant it to him and he was compelled to stop. ' Kx-Surrogato Abram H. Dailey closed the argument for the Spiritualists, The entire argument of Mr. Whitney, he said; was hut a repetition of the arguments he had used h week ago, and might be summed up In the one idea that all of man died when the breath left his body. Two thousand years ago. Mr. Dailey said there lived aman named Julius Crnsar. He was an ambitious man, and he carried the prowess of the Roman arms all through the surrounding country, and conquered many nations. For fear that his fame.would not be known to future generations, he wrote liis "Commentaries. In, the opening of Ills book lie declared that the world was divided into three parts-- Kurope. Asia and Africa.- That was true of Cwsar s time, and C*sar was Ignorant that there were two sides to the world. Mr. Whitney was very much like Crosar, and was Ignorant that Spiritualism bad discovered another slde-^the spiritual world. It reminded him of the man who had one talent, who buried It In his, own eoncejt. wrapped It up'lnthe mummy cloths of euperstulon.ftnd let it lay In the darjcuhis of benighted big- _A.. It I it,.

It will he a boarding and day school, and will fit pupil» for any college to which women are admitted. We have known Dr. Willard for years and regard him as a man of broad culture aud liberal view«, thoroughly coosden- tlous in alt his work nnd especially adapted to make»och a school In many respects superior to any similar Institution In the city. Dr. Willard will, from his nature and training, be very critical In life selection of assistants. His institution will be a safe home, as well as a good school, for young women, and this feature Is of the utmost importance. The Doctor may be addressed at 15 South Sheldon street, Chicago.

Let ns raise a solemn protest against the use of the epithet " dead," as applied to the departed. It has a chilling, ugly sound, and must be as repulsive to them as It Is to us. Let us drop its use henceforth and forever. To the disembodied, existence is as real os with us ye«, even more so. The earth-life Is superficial, arbitrary, accidental aud conventional. The life of the world to come lsreal, spiritual aud substantial. Here we may plnck the shadowy semblance of a roe«, constructed by the forces of nature out of juices and elements of earth, and colored by the soblows bis trumpet In the morning-' He thought he heard the-trumpet of Gabriel blowing, and that the crack of doom was coming, for such as Mr. VUiltney, at least. My friend says "continued Mr. Dailey, that Mono» wrote the first five books of the Bible. But he cannot prove tt. What were the people for whom those five books, were written? A poor, miserable tribe or wanderers, who went down Into Kgypt. where they were taken Care of for -too yearn, when they repaid their benefactors by plundering them of all their Jewel» and making a bee line for the wilderness. They talk about the pillar of cloud that, wont before them by day and the pillar of fire by night. Thex were nothing more than the Ore«with which any euo- ceeefnl General of to-day would guide his army on a march through a wilderness. Everything In nature is Indestructible, and God himself is but the highest manifestation of nature. He Is God of tbe universe, stretching millions and millions of miles away. That is the God we would have..

God is indestructible. The sonl of man lathe spark of divinity pat Into him by God Almighty Himself,and it Is absolutely indestructible.

The superstitions which wo have Inherited from a darker age, haveburrounded the death bed with anguish, and decked tho hearse with tho sombre trapping* of unutterable woe. This, a better philosophy seeks to dispel. The heavenly world 1» drawing nearer to garth, and wo feel Its influence more aud more clearly from year to year, Itia rather a matter of knowledge than of faith, that our departed loved on«are living still, living In all tho exuberance of eternal life, and that the veil 1b bnt thin that divide» us f om them. For ages the world has lived between hopes and fear»! feare of death as the grim destroyer, and hopes that after all, there might be a life that outlives the silent tomb. In remote age«, when divine Inspiration first waa felt, a dim and uncertain light began to shine upon the pathway to the tomb. It has proved to be a light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The seers of antiquity saw and spake their-vlslons of that which Is to come when death shall have broken the seal. The same was more lutly revealed by the Prophet of Nazareth. Before him tt waa dimly shown to the few whose hearts were attuned to the melody of heaven; but he was the first to demonstrate openly and unmistakably, and in such a way aa to enlist the affections of the race, that death baa no chains for the Immortal nun; and since bis time a well defined assurance lia# existed in the hearta of mil- llona, baaed upon faith in him.

KM MA HABDINGE lituttkn. Tim first question that present* itself to an lu this connection lu: VYhal 1» the worth of our Spiritualism, either lo ourselves or to huomtihy nt large? WIioii we remember the impenetrable myetery lu* which all uubjeete of ati occult or epiritual character wen* Involved. before the udveut of Spiritualiain, 1 think we need pt> uo further to prove the value of that great uioiemeut. The mere conversion of our dim faith in immortality into eettled knowledge, the solution of the awful problem, Want has ileutli done to ~*us *y the restoration of all we have mourned art dead to a better inn! higher life, utid the complete elucidation of our owu, den liny beyond the portal«of the grave, are subjects of eucti luime&hurablo grandeur uud importance, that I have scarcely any patience to listen to the platitudes of those who, from any motive, strive to depreciate the value of the, spiritual movement with the imbecile cry o/: What Is llu-use of it"v Hid time serve, f con Id»how you that the greatest revolution that has ever been effects lu public opinion hra been due to Spiritualism, ether religious 'bodies have produced a certain amount of, influence on the few followers who accepted their oplolous. Spiritualism has produced au Influence upon all sects, and all peopjml Other reforms aud other sciences have appealed to special classes of thlnkars. Spiritualism by demonstrating the truth of tban e personal responsibility here and hereafter, stimulates every reform that makes mah wiser and better, whilst its phenomena, by' engaging every aenae, Involves eïery phase of science and by connecting intelligence with phenomena, covers the origin of all causes and stretches away into the realm of all >ffeçta In the universe. Volumes would fail me to expatiate upon all. that Spiritualism is, and could do. All I can now find space to say Is. that I know beyond, a peradventure that it has. partly by open. Influence and partly by psychological contagion. effected the most profound revolution In human opinion that the pages of history have ever recorded. n Leaving these statement* for further elaboration. 1 next proceed to call your attention to the fact, that this gredt rerelator, liberaliser and stimulus to mental progress, has, within the last few years, manifestly and injuriously deteriorated in He beneficent influence upon public opinion. I do not propose to Illustrate this statement by referring to other countries than America, where the genins of the people is essentially different om that of auy other land. In America, the spirit of republican lem Induces a tend eacy to a comity of * " oat ' thought, and opinions and ex STM tl is Uaged with the spirit of repabuggirtsm, hence, whatever In new or unprecedented most at once become the property of the community. and people rush Into print or proirope rt family elrcle. It la, a rl believe, this specialty of the American character, which has tended so largsly to popularise the facts and Philos' opby of Spiritualism, and hence It Aos been, and still It, to America that we must look to see the most striking effects of Spiritualism upon the life and conduct of Its votaries, and yet 1 grieve lo notice, since my return to this country, a greater amount of apathy Indifference prevailing amongst the Spirltu î and alists themselvea to the advancement»f their CitlBe, than 1 have observed before in a missionary work of nearly a quarter of a century's «landing. In this remark J desire to emphasize the words mno*(/*f the Spinhutltilt thrmeelvee, for I have good reason to believe, that with the general public, the doctrines of Spiritualism were never so well received as nt present, whilst the development of phenomenal powers see ins to be making greater Inroads than ever Into the acceptance of the thinking part of the community. U may bealleg- ed that If these assertions are true, 1 have nothing to complain of. " Spiritualism fa progressing," you say, and if it does not move onward In the ranks from which it originated, It matters nothing, provided it la doing its work with other clasbes of the human family/ it may be that lu this very remark [ have answered myself, and that I ooght to pause here and cease lo urge any other plea. A* one-out of the very few remaining now of the old guard, who in this very city helped to raise aloft the standard of the faith, I am free to say. I am not satisfied to rest here. On the contrary, if I could make my voice heard by. the united sense of every Spiritualist -itr'amerka. Î would cry: Are you then satisfied to see the standard of your faith plucked out of your hands and given to the strangers, who have hitherto only labored for Us downfall? Bat, again, my listeners may nay 1 exaggerate the Imminence of the danger and I answer Xo! 1 do ngt. The phenomena on which we Met. and ever moat* rest to prove our spiritual authority, is so thoroughly honeycombed with shsuis and fraud/*.that the publier are beginning to lose all confidence in medlumlstlc revelations, and honest mediums suffer alike In consequence, with the dishonest, in reputation and means of living. For myself I have always maintaln- intthe use and necessity of public and professional mediamshlp. Those who have traced out the history of the movement as I have, will acknowledge, that but for the patience, fidelity and high endowmehp* of onr public mediums, we should never have had any spiritual movement at all. Private medinm- 'liip and family circles are the sequence and outgrowth of public Investigations, and even when they precinte them, ft is at last to the public medium that the perplexed Investigafon tor most resort to obtain guidance, direct.. and t -oolutloi] of many of the mysteries of the early communion. It Is In view, therefore, of the highly Important position occupied by the public medium, that we must all notice With equal rei gret and surprise the continual recurrence of chargee ami Cjiynterchargcsnu the subject of fraud, with whifch our journals are filled. To the Sjdritnallst tills must be n subject of humiliation as well as regret; to the public it Is one of disgust and repulsion. Letters full of rancor and recrimination occupy the space that shonlil be devoted to philosophy and spiritual communion, and Imbecile attempts to cover ap palpa1jp exposures of fraud, are only rendered more Injurious when the writers descend to violence and abuse. It la only when public propagandists like myself are compelled to meet the scorn and sneers which these repeated exposures excite frotnjthe world, that the ill odor In which the name of Spiritualism Is held, can be fully nnderatood; It Is only then that we can begin to comprehend why thousands of earnest minds that would rejoice In the assured facts of eptrit communion, are repulsed from the investigation of the subject, whilst scores of really honest and capable mediums are branded with the disgrace which virtually belongs only to the few. As to the doctrinnl portion of tbework.lt Is even worse off than the phenomenal. Whilst the public wi/l come, do come, and would cotne In «till greater numbers than ever. If fair opportunities were afforded them to hear the beautiful teachings of Spiritualism, cither tlje apathy or meanness of too many of those who once upheld th«cause, ha- become so universal that scores of place* In which the public listened every Sabbath In serried masses to soul Inspiring doctrines from the splrltnal rostrum of former times, have either now ho such gatherings at all, or else sustain them by the aid of a few zealous workers of the old school, many of whom are tin- able to make financial sacrifices- themselves, and hence throw the bnrden of both work and expenses on the luckless speaker. I know whereof I speak, when t repeat that in at least twenty, or even more, of the prominent cities of America, where spiritual meetings used formerly to be held with unbounded success and benefit to the public, there are now no meetings at all, and that, wbilsthundreda of believers In the spiritual cause are paying liberally for pews in churches-and listening to teachings wbleh their burn ascended spirit friends have proved to be false or worthies*. Iu the meantime, when those mediums and speakers who really love their work, realize the stupendous mark It has made on the age, and the good that might be effected by ft, attempt to carry on tbelr labors of propagandist» alone, they mnat either be prepared to pay outtheipselves, sthgle-handed. ill the expenses that used formerly to be undertaken, knd hhired -in by large cbnmn{i.tee«or they are driven by sordid necessity to malntain their meetings in small stifling balls, unattractive locations, and with each marks erf poverty labelled on tbelr attempt«as serve to repel, rather than attract the refined portions of the community. 1 know at this present moment of at least twenty well educated, highly inspired and capable speakers, who are positively barred out of the Held of usefulnpssthey might have 111led so Wi ll. I know of others who are about to retire, and that from sheer lieceswily, and all the wlii lo the world 1* eagerly seeking for just such a standard of fallhias these willing missionaries could give; and all the while when their last cent ia exhausted iu attempting to niept alone alt the expense* that were formerly divided amongst large committees, und they, the unaided medium*, seek for means of support in other jllrections, a loud outcry is raised by the do-nothing lookers on, and Mrfaud Mrs. illauk become the subject of universal spiritualistic denunciation, because they have abandoned the cause. I do not hesitate to shy,moreover, that nine-tenths of the frauds that have been perpetrated amongst mediums, and that by highly gifted and genuine mediums, have beeimrinuced In many instances by the insatiate appetjte of gaping wonder-seekere for spectacular display, but still oftener by the desperate necessity of Ill-paid and iil-rnstaiued workers in a field of effort which did not yield them dally bread. And thus It Is. that though the Spiritual- 1st* have th&nobie*t doctrines that were ever preerlied, and are the only set of people on earth who have the means of practically demonstrating the truth of what they preach, yet are they also the only set of people holding religious views, who allow their workera to scramble for a living as beat they can, who make mi provuioti for those who lire worn- oat iu tl eir service, who have uo scientific organizations for the Investigation of the wonderful phenomena in their midst, and who trust wholly to the single-handed efforts of a few brave and noble men and women, here and there scattered through the land, to uphold a cause, which it -hnuld be the per eonal interest, honor and glory of every believer In Spirit nil Hm throughout the world to help support, strengthen and advance the Interest* of. Now. friends, let it not be supposed that In complaining or the amazing apathy and.cu Ip- able Indifference of the wuisy tu our ranks. I am ungrateful enough to forget the indefatigable efforts of the fete. For example: in this very clly. the Empire t'jty of America, I find Habhathslay meetings, conferences, a Spirit tialists Alliance, aud a Lady s \ld Society; hut oil the other hand, how are these efforts sustained? The whole of Ihese undertaking«lire carrier! forward hy the personal efforts and personal sacrifices of those whom vou could count ou your fingers, whilst New York City numbers lo my certain knowledge Us thousands, if not its tens of thousand«, of believers 111 Spiritualism. 1 have trespassed so long on your time, friends, that although t am hound to say 1 have not'made one tithe of my charges against the present broken, effete and scattered nm dltionof our cause.yet I feel ldare not claim younndulgence any fnrtl»er- AH that 1can now aek permission to add, lsra few word* of very concise stateinent concerning the means by which I deem our noble cause might be placed on a belter basis befoie the world, and by. which Spiritualist* might. If they would, right themselves, and do Justice to that world of spirits from whom mankind has derived euch inest!mahle privilege*. My first proposition will, [ know, be equivalent to sounding the trumpet of war..still it will have the one merit, at least, of promoting unity of thought amongst an immense array of the Spirltualiati-even if that unity is mauifes ed In unsparing denunciations against the propounder, for 1 prop»«nothing less than wide-spread and national organization. I shall say nothing. at the present time for or against organization, save to claim that it Is nature's law. whilst disorganization Is the Snlrltoaltst's failure. Briefly, to state the mode In which I wojild de-1 sir* to Me organization operate, I wolild say. flret, that we should found a college where young persons trained in the highest school j of moral«and educational attain men ts.«hou Id be taught how to unfold the gifts of medl- nmshlp, and prepare to become the prophets and spiritual teachers of the fntore. Next. I would form an American Spiritualist Mis «Senary Society, from which well qualified speaker* should be sent out to fill the rostrums and educate the people in town, county, village and hamlet, throughout the length and breadth of the United States. To save these devoted laborers from the sordid necesjiuy of starving, beggiug, or diriractiog mind and health from tbelr'dutie* In the effort to procure dally, bread, 1 would have them decently provided for, and decently paid, from the Central Bureau of the movement. I wopid, next, have a well conducted and thoroughly efficient Healing Institute, deeming. that If Beth-shans amf faith cure* can perform the beneficent work of healing at- tribnted to them without the much vaunted aid of medical -plrlts or spiritual magnetism, those who do claim to b*tbo* endowed ought to work with leu-fold power, and doubtless would do so. If they would only follow the example of the Beth-shans aud faith cure* in the ardor of their work, aod the rasults accruing from unity of force aod purpose. Let If be rememembered that although 1 dp not continue to extend this over long paper by entering into detailed plans for the organizations I propose, I do not talk Utopia when I thus concisely al polntment was an agreeable one, and I am truly (lad to say to you, my friend. 1 still live/ Your friend, as of yore. Wm, J. Knox" Now. this medium dlil not come to thl* State until some three years after the death. of my friend. It l* not lit all reasonable that he should have known him, a*! am confident he did not, and certainly not reasonable that he should have known of our compact.

I wall rpnutibar holding my father's hand when a child. a«we walked tip the hroad street of Hatfield to the uuvtiiig house one pleasant summer afternoon more than fifty yearn ago, to hear a la (»per mice lecture by I)r.

Ami no marvel for drinking distilled Bplfltn was reputable, unt the most pious Indulged in It without rebuke. The old minister and the deacons kept pace with the wicked, nod the toper quoted Hcrlpture and held up the preacher as his pattern in moderate drinking. A substantial townsman strongly opposed these now temi»trance notions," ami told me his boyish experience. The minister then had a) farm the parish properly, which lie worked and used after the old fa*>hion«-mid the stout old Squire said to me; When 1 was a boy I used to work for the minister some times. He drove,things sharp, but he used me well. I used to turn his fanning mill while lie shoveled In ami took away the grain until my arms ached. Hut about eleven o'clock he'would set down his Imtf-hiisheJ on the barn lloar-nqd say; 'Come Elijah, let us go Into the tpms4 and take something to cam fori our heart*/' 1 knew what that meant. and was glad to go. I would sit down in the kitchen while he went to the old cupboard to get out the black bottle and the sugar, and tiled a mug of toddy. Then he would say; 'Come, my lad, take hold,' and that was good stiff toddy, nnd plenty of It. I slick to the old way." And stick he did, with the story of the minister's toddy as a stronghold. Cider wo* freely used. I knew farmers who drank up forty or fifty barrels yearly reputable citizens, not at nit intemperate! It was bard work to make these men give it up. They Would plead against the great waste of apples In their orchards useless save for rhler-tnafe- Ing-aud make that waste,an argument for their llery thirst, growing as crabbed as their old elder, if too much urged. But h temperance lecturer reached their hearts by turning their stomach! He told them that the nine bushels of poor apples knotty nnd wormy that made a barrel of elder had a goad half peck of worms In them, which were ground and pressed in the pumice,' nnd made about two quarts of worm juice (ogive thclc elder n smart iangl There was no getting away from this, and it made more impression than all other arguments aud appeals. They had an Internal sense'of Its truth when they heard It! Years before my parents had taken the old fashioned square cii**» bottlesof liquors tlien a part of the outfit of every hospitable family from their sideboard, nnd ended the drinking custom In utir home. When we moved to Hatfield it was the common custom to offer mm to neighbors when they called, and our omission was a great rudeness, about as marked as hot to Invite the caller to sit down. They found that f was piled with rum and sugar in this vvay, and were obliged to forbid my tasting liquors or cider, which was thought a queer prohibition. But a change came. The young minister was a temperance man. Habits altered, so that the son or on old farmer, whd had nsed up a barrel of elder weekly," tofd me ho did not use a barrel a year, with a farm and family larger than li by-fathcr's. The temperance movement had wrought tins change.

Ills rt» iieit «a. compiled BlttlK It is one of nature's immutable laws that the living forms of earth must,sooner or later, return to dust whence they came, and man's mortal body is not un exception to this rule. It must dissolve, crumble back to Its mother earth. This process of nature, the taking down uf our earthly tabernacle, is called death, and II is that death which the apostle speaks of when he sqys: "It is appointed unto mint mice to die"- pot throe time«as some have taught, We believe that nothing which transpires on our earth has been more misrepresented than the change callpd death. No oilier scene has been represented ns being so horrid and heart-rending. The death of man*«hotly la designed In ho a blessing, and not a curse, and it is reasonable tu «oppose that his condition will biftaltcr in the future state than it was during earth life. The scripture represents man as having ;i body,«soul or spirit, and we are taught that Hit* physical organism Is only a tabernacle for the soul or spirit to occupy during the time of Its sojourn on earth. It la of the earth, earthy, and cannot epler the spirit abode. The spirit ik immortal, and nnturally belongs to the spirit-realms, and when the garb of llesh shall have been laid off, the spirit-laud will appear toth«enraptured vision. Thus truth robs death of its terrors, and converts the so-called dreadful monster into a smiling angel, and then the change becomes simply the door through which we enter the spirit land. If the future slate is bettor than this, death 1«a blessing Instead of a curse, as some would havens believe. We die, as il Is called, that we may live in a more exalted state of existence. We cense to live here as men and women, that we may begin to live as angels in the celestial regions. By dying one emerges from his mortal, suffering body, and at once possesses a more glorious one, like the resurrected spirit-body of Jesus; one that is not subject to suffering oy dying. We lay off our clay-tenement«, which are consigned to the grave because they cannot be of any use to us in the Spirit-world. Our physical bodies aye only needed while we remain on earth. They cannot he taken to the spirit-land; they could not exist there, lind we do not need them in that world where all In spiritual. Let them perish, t lieu, will unit mg rot. rouhzlug that they arc only the casket that held heaven s Immortal jewels, the ungels of the hereafter! We learn from nature as well as from the blhle, that mankind are progressive beings, and will not lose their identity as they pass from ilia mundane to the,spirit-spheres. They will bear the Image of spirits, and their course will be onward nnd upward forever. The immutable laws of oar'own being will transfer us to the ever green fields of the Summer- land, and we do not go beyond tha proof of»scripture and nature wheu we say that all wilt be taken there to live eternally, for all are immortal. The blble states that all will be resurrected, and Jesus tolls us that the resurrected shall die no more; and nature maintains that 1( one lives on after the death of bin mortal body, all will, for God work* through the instrumentality of natural laws. So we see that what we call death» is. only a change. Panl nays: As to AdanYkll di?, ao In Christ shall all he made alive." -Thus he speaks of man's resurrection, proving that all will be raised. Jeans says of the resurrected ones; "Neither can they die any more, for they are equal unto the angels, and are the children of God, being the children of IhertB urrectlon." Now. that the dead are raised, even Moses showed at the bush when he call- rd the Lord, the God of Atnilmni. I-mie run! Jacob, for he la not a God of the dead, but of the living, for all live unto him. Jceua and Paul hare thus plainly told «that all will be resurrected; all advance beyond death, and are Immortal, for remember Jesus said they «halt die no more. Thee«words of Jeatpi show that those patriarch«had already been resurrected, proving that the resurrection taken place wnen each one lays off his mortal body. The following' words of Jesus 'prove the same thing: "The hour 1«coming, and now la, when the dead shall hear the voice of the adn of God, and they that hear nhall live.". Mankind are dying every hour, as Jesus well knew, and he said this to teach os that the resurrection takes place in the very hour the body dies. Be assured, than, earthly ones, that your departed*friends are not dead; they have risen to a higher lire, and noware numbered with the angels, are the children of God, Incorruptible and Immortal, M Pan! has said, and as Jesus said, they will die no more. Thus we have the proof that we do not lose our consciousness by-tlie death of our mortal bodies, nor does the grave hold the real man, the spirit, that rammt he cmfined in the i rave, that cold dark place set apart for man- liid a perishing bodies. We onty leave, then, in the grave, our wornout bouse, or tabernacle us Pant regard* tt, and enter our spiritual house, which i.e said Is eternal In the heavens; for which cause we faint not, hut though our outward man perish, yet the inward mail will be renewed day by day; that 1«, lives on. The learned Paul, in beautiful language show«that the resnrrectloi) simply conaista of the inward or spiritual man passing from Its earthly tabernacle to the spirit-realms. Speaking of the death and burial of the out-, ward man, he says: "Thou sowest not that body that shall be." Certainly thenotir earth* y bodies are not the resurrected ones. The im morinl spirit of man only «urxivehj)l which JF«fis said. It shall die no more. "For we that are in tills taberuaclo do groan, being burdened, not that we would he unclothed hut rlollu-d upon, thstmorlality might be swallowed up of life. \ 1 our earthly hodiouna often a burden to ns, for they bring pain, sorrow, disease anil Uriah ly what we call death. But Paul say«that we are to he elotheil up'it wtlli a spirit body, which has no disease; pain or death; therefore we are always confident, though while we are at home tn the body, we are absent from the Lord. These passages show Hint the spirit,of Hum can he absent from the mortal body, nnd tie conarinusly present with pome one else. He «peaks of Ills change ns a happy even!, mid that it would bo (o him a gain. Moses and Kllas appeared to Jesus, Peter, James and John on the mount. They n>n versed with Jesus, wliieh prove«rnnclindvely That those we call dead are alive, and that there I«no rent death. Tlmusniid«of earth'«departed have returned and identified them selves, as did Mose«and Ellas, and a«did Jesus among h$a disciples In that supper room, the doors being ahnt. lint they knew him, conversed with him until he vanished, -and by tills appearance, ho proved his resurrect Ion. a«all «la who appear to mu rials. As we have proof that [here is an endless «tato of existence for the human family, it Is right and propf r for us to inquire about that state. Wilt the greater part of, mankind suffer endlessly the keenest torments, a«many of our teacher«bau* declared.or will God annihilate some, as others have declared he will? -Such doctrines appear to me ns Inconsistent and rontrary to reason, Justice. Mble and nature. Is It not better to assume that all will be finally happy? From lublft quotations we learn that the resurrected are the children of God; that ail are to he resurrected, and equal, finally to H i p nngejs. and cannnt die any more; conse- quently hll are immortal, and cannot be annihilated. Vfocanuot believe It possltilethnt John s God of love can he mi cruel as to punish hl«children endlessly in hell torments as has been preached to ns. Lately, hell has been left out of the revised blble hy able scholars, who lu. their work of translating dare not render the Greek word hattet, hell, as did King James s translators, for It la well-known now that haikt means the grave. There are many texts which prove that ail mankind will finally become happy, but for the sake of brevity I shall quote but few: "And 1 heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold the tabernacle of God la with men, and he will dwell with them, and be their God.".' And God «hall wipe away all tears from their eye«, and there will be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither «hal I there be any more pain, for the former thing«have past away, "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold I make all thing«new,'" If this text he true, what becomes of the hell of torment, when there is no more pain, neither sorrow nor crying. Says Paul: Behold I show you a mystery: wo shall not nil sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the (winkling of an eye, at the last trump, (hr the trump Bhall sound and the dead «hail he raised, incorruptible, and we shall ho changed, for this corruptible must put on In- corrupllou, and this mortal must put on Immortality; then shall be brepgljt to pass the saying that Ihwritten, BootTr Is «wallowed up In victory!'" / AH thus get the victory over death, for all are resurrected. If they were not resurrected, then death would hold the victory over them. Thus denth becomes vanquished, amt the victory of mankind 1«complete. Those we call dead are not rtea<j. They are free from death, free fromaheir tijmrtnl bodies, free from pain, trials and temptation*, free to roam over the fields of Paradise and to hold sweet communion with natntal and angels. We thus find proof that out friends who have passed to the spirit realms are more happy there than they could be here. Let ns, then, be comforted with such gtorloos thoughts, ami Hlrlve to he goed, that we may he Ifuppy here and hereafter, for goodness brings happiness. For God linth concluded them all tn nnbe- lief, that he might have mercy upon all, unbelievers as well a* believer«..and the Lord will destroy Iti this moitotaln the face of the covering cast over all-people, and.the veil that'is «oread over all nations. He will swallow up death In victory, anu^he Lord God will wipe away tear* from off a lf faces. From these quotations we see tlw the bibte does not sustain the doctrine of endless punishment nor that of unnlhllatloox Wonder not that the earth's Inhabitants have stood terrified and troubled before the tomb, for the reason that the beyond, or what Is called death and (he eternal hereafter, hn«been described to be so terrible. The doctrine of endless punishment, though not real, has made man miserable because of Us Imaginary suffering, which he ha«ao mach dreaded. Thus, with bigoted infatuation mankind have been led to believe in a religion of fear In- tstead of a religion of love, which la the only true religion. Religion founded upon fear has canned a vast amount of sorrow and af. fuctiod, and made death man s greatest dread, though it was designed for his greatest good.

But «oitie may ask: Is not death to be dreaded on account of the terrible manner in which it comes, cruelly destroying our earthly bodies atid consigning them to corruption?

Many gold-hunter«believe in dreams, say«an Eagle City correspondent of The Sun, Like the gambler«, they have a great respect for luck, and anything that partakes of the supernatural finds with them the most ready credence., To dream of finding a tula is to them conclusive evidence that such a mine exist» eiuctly as «een In tha vision. If they fait to locate It, that is tfieir misfortune- They never doubt for a moment that they Jin v«}/ been made the medium of some commnnlegation from ou high to Hie children of men. The Droam Gulch, one of the few payuik mining properties in the new Crnur il' Alene district, was so named because its owner, one David, claim«to have been led to search for gold In tliese parts by a vision, A year ago ho was u farmer np in the Falouse region, having no thought of riche*, and well content to grub out a living on hi* not over-productive claim. He look no newspap«*ra,^nd had no mrans of knowing anything about the rumor then in circulation to the effect that the Crnur d'alene country was rich In gold. He put in til«crop* last year a» usual, and awaited the harvest. One fcttufferabty liofn ighl In the latter part of August he had his wonderful dream. He went to work as ifual fa his field, aud thought nothing of his night'«experience until nearly noon, when something brought to hi* mind the first fragment of hi* dream. It seemed to him then like some half forgotten story, and he seated himself, intent upon recalling it all If posnlble. Slowly the whole dream wa* revealed to him with marvelous dlatluet- ness, and he went over It again and again in his mind as something that he was loath to dismiss. At dinner he told hia wife, bat «be, h matler-of fact soal, waa disposed to rally him a little for h k folly tn paying attention to It. Ho said no more on the subject to her. He made np hln mind that the first chance ho got be would scud for some newspapers and see if they contained anything wldch would help hliu to solve the mystery. Iu the meantime he committed hi* dream to paper eveu to the minutest detail, and made drawing* of certain loc&ikiro which be hsd seen in bis vision. In talking about it since then he said: I have drowned many times, as everybody has, and some of my vlnfons have been very vivid, but this one w.'w unearthly. It marie such an impression npon me that I could not begin to make you understand my feelings if I tried: 1 could think of nothing else. Somethlngseemed to be urging me all the lime to do something, but-what to do I- did not know. I actually began to fear that my mind wa* beginning to tatter David's dream, as narrated by himself, was as follows: I found myself In a most desolate locality in the mountains, where to all appearance«no human foot Kcd ever been. Something impelled me on, and I fought my way through thickets tbkl were Intensely dark, oven at midday, over rock«, and through raging torrents. My course was upward, and. though I could see no end to my Journey, and my feet were bleeding and my clothing torn, 1 well remember that 1 was not In the least discouraged or alarmed. At length, when nearly exhausted, I reached the top of the mountain and looked down for miles into the valley below. Aa 1 nee It now It was not an Inviting sight, but I pushed on regardless of the pels the exertion gave me. When I got to the bottom I found myself In a vast solitude, shut in by mountains on either band, and not a human habitation in sight. It 1* flogeai tn hie now fhat I tremble to think of We condition I wa«la, bat at the time I know I felt no concern for myself. I lay down and dreamed again a dream within a dream. I saw the adjacent mountain peaks surmounted by palaces of the most gorgeous description, some of them made of marble, others of pearl, nnd «till others of gold, «liver, and precious sinn>-*, Their Infly Hpiri««ami dnim** pim-i-d tin* «ky and the nuuv rny* wore reflected with dazzling brilliancy from their riwplendont column«. Out of tfistr great gate* cnuie processions of muguillcengy attired horsemen, who rode down Into the valley and gathered' g old and silver In chunk*, aud carried them ack to the iiiuuutalu«. One party came to the point where t w&«sleeping, and being already well loaded they counseled -together whether they would <>jieu the mirth at that point that riay or wait until another time, 'There 1«gold here, «aid one In a voice that I can never forget, *bat we had better not bother with it io«!ay. Let ti* mark tin* place and come again to-morrow.' Under a cedar shivered by lightning, they plied up several atone» and rode away. "I nwoke, looked hastily about me, nnd, though the palaces had vanished, I»aw the bloated cellar and the pile of «lone«. All around in that part of the gulch I saw bits of gold nrptrnding through the *od or the gravel. ^The very rock«seemed burnished with it, aril even the tree* glistened from root to topmo*d8«qiiich. ] «eenieri riveted to Hi»* spot.

In the cuur*e of time Davlfl got a hundleof newspapers, aud almost the first ttihig he saw In them wn* n report of the Cunjr il* Aleiie gold excitement. He rend everything relative to the new place* and sent for more. He believed that lie had found a key to hi* dream. The more he read bout the topography of the country the stronger became hi«conviction that it was the «nine'locality he had visited In his dream*. When his crops wen* gathered he set out alone for this place, then hut just founded **id» mere collection of tent*. HI«wife-undertook to persnade him that Id* mission was a foolmi one, and even hinted that *h» believed he had gone clean drift, but nothing could «top him.

Even the milder formé of faultfinding expressed by "Isn't that horrid?" "I think it is real mean, when Indulged In as frequently as some young girl» do, brings the mind into permanent state* of dissatisfaction and discontent with every thing around them. There is no health in dissatisfaction and discontent. Sooner or later all these various forms of uncontrolled emotions show their III effects upon the physical system. The moral nature Is as'hule trained In filgh. cheerful, hopeful views of life. That relating to sex needs special attention.,... LOWAIMS AMD ftistlmentauty. «The moral nature is also depraved by low aims, by se f-piiy which leads to hypochou- drtaclsm, by certain klud* of aell-glorlflca- tlotl which indulged in tdl* dreaming and an aimless life, by m-utlmenulity which weakens the mind. All that lends to self-brooding. whether In pity or laudation, tends toward physical weakness. Whatever throws the mind bnck upon Its own state», to brood over discomfort» or waste, or unattained longings, or to dream of Impossible happiness founded upon supposed virtues pictured by a morbid self-love, will at some time weaken the physical nature and bring It* po**es#or Into invalidism. Such states are largely cultiva ted by the unhealthy novels read by young glrla. Most of the so-called bayfjalest stories appeal to the emotional nature; The heroine» are represented u awakening the admiration of every one by their wonderful quail tie», or are secretly suffering from a lack of being understood. This \ie w of character Is most false. Honest, true people neither receive nor live for unlveraal admiration; and, on the other side, none ever suffer from being misunderstood by everybody except those who misunderstand everybody. FREEDOM FOB DEVELOPMENT. «The freedom given to the boy has resulted in bis finding much wholesome pleasure for himself, while the false Ideas of womanly delicacy have ebnt off his sisters from many useful sports. She has been driven to seek amusement In several injurious ways, among them the reading of the frivolous stories befnra s[token of,* If mother» would avoid for their daughter» otie nf the most prolific can»* e«of utsrvou» debility, they ruu»i inform lhetn*elves more thoroughly than they do how how those daughter» are learning, from the hook» they rend, to look at Ihelrnwri characters, and lln-tr own relation to life's duties.

The htihil» of alrefi are perhaps the most neglected of any. Children go to [days and concerts, or sit up Inte at home every night, or a few time» a week, or onfe a week, and weaken all their bodily power» for two or three days every, time this Is done. And the mother wonder» why they are not strong, for they exercise out of doors, ami eat whole some food, they are stronger than they would he without any good habit», hut Hie Indulgence in this one irregularity, must prove an Injury.

Not only encourage but provide for every social enjoyment which is entered Into tu the daytime, which excludes the thought of dress, which associate» boys and girls on u purely friendly footing, and which admits of the presence of the older member» of the family. Dlsronfage all that >4hlch demands late hour» and gay dressing, which encourage» the exclusive attention of one bay to one gixl uulil image proper for marriage, and (hat which exclude» older members of the family. This is the kind of social life our children need.. IblME AM( HEMENTS. " A very great evil in the home 1» the leaving of the choice of the amusements to the young people, or supplying them only with unhealthy ones, Instead of providing them with wholesome one», ^ "The home»jinny not be considered a home unless its arrangement» embrace joyous, free day-time, 'g<iod times' for (he younger members. These enjoyment» ahould Include the a»- socialiou of both sexes. The companionship of boy» is of more. Importance to girl» than 1» usually supposed. The love of the other sex is natural to every human being. In it«purity, this quality iu girls Is sweet ami womanly. But because It haa been left without guidance and without pure means of expressing itself, it is repressed by (hp right-minded girl, and degenerates Into sitllne»» and even immorality In those of more uncontrolled emotions of coarse instinct». Let us, then, mothers and teachers, never cease to search for the weaknesses of our ways in the training of our children. Not by one or two good habits shall they become strong. Not until every physical and mental necessity ts supplied shall we see growing up around uh sound bodies which «hail be tbe material forms of strong aud vigorous souls. and make serious mistake» when they think they do.

In my la«t 1 gave au account of an interesting experience,'»bowing a marked limit to spirit [tower. Such experiments throw light upon tbe entire subject of spirit intercourse, Oli* who Is mediumj*tir may supply power to a certain class of spirits, to come very close to earth-life, whilst another class may find no medium-hip la his organism, We must remember that they who return witli the greatest material power, are»pirita of the threflholrt who have nut yet outgrown earth. In this class of spirit» we are aecessarily exposed to trick»teis. but eveu if we cape them we must take note, first, that the mure cluee- ]y any spirit is c«rapport with earth-life, the leed advanced Is that spirit in true spiritual growth; and, secondly, we must remember that without epecial medjumtihip the spirit does not actually perceive the material forms that go to make our life oh earth what- it Lb to-day. Those who are seeking to.make Spiritualism what they call practical" may How learn a lesson of tremendous importance. First, those who run to the Spirit-world for advice lo their buslnees, either come into contact with advanced intelligence«who hare long outgrown 'remembrance of earth business, and. therefore, gan only advlae aa to general principle«; or, eecobdiy, *hey attract f<jbluh and m)-»cbievou3 epirtta, whope motive la purely «elfish; or, thirdly, [hf>fitid spirits who hare not outgrown an interest In the details of earth bnsioe««, and yet remain Interested In stocks, bohda and merchandise, haunting the aceoea of their former life, and u far as may be continuing mortals rather than spirit*. We have already aeen from the recorded experiment that advice from such spirit«, no matter how kindly meant, mneb result dteaa- trousiy, sooner or. later, since they cannot come directly In contact with earth matter, A cnrlfrtj* ts»»k, which jiroiu1 n< I*- on» of gtrsit int*-rr»1, will * ra lm Mblta)»») by M»-y<r».

At the expiration of the trial subscription (ho paper will be stopped unletta previously renewed. The rapid increase of interest in Spiritualism among tho odanued, both inside and outside the various religions denominations, makes the need of an uneectaylan, Independent, fearless, candid antt hlgh-clli«* paper a -greater desideratum than ever before. The J ournal will be kept up to the highest standard possible with the facilities of the publisher and editor, and he hopes for the hearty and continuous patronage of the better and more intelligent class of the groat public,both with-* in and without the Spiritualist ranks. Construct! Spiritualism. One great matter for Spiritunlluto to Impress on tbelr own minds, and then to atamp a trongly on the minds of Inquirers, is that our aim and effort Is not merely to demonstrate the truth and reality of certain alleged spirit phenomena, and then stop. These phenomena are of exceeding value, ns means to a great end. They not only lift the veil between this and a higher stage of Immortal existence, bat they point to a new Philosophy of Life; to a comprehension of our spiritual faculties here, as-well as to the great hereafter; to a finer knowledge of the psychological laws by which we Influence and control each other, for good or HI, erery hour, to the keeping a due balance between the outer and inner life-th e culture of all faint Hies and pow- ers of body, mind and spirit; to the natural, free and harmonious nee of reason, lodgment and Intuition la the discovery of truth a Harmonlal Philosophy; to the wonderful power of will, guided by wisdom and vitalized by lore. In making the rough places smooth and opening an upward path; to the blessed ministrations of healthful magnetism, in healing the sick and giving aurcease of pain to the suffering; to the wonders of clairvoyance our own spiritual eight; to the great truth that we are built to last, our personality to endure and to be still more distinct beyond the grave; to the death of all superstition, miraculous supematurallsm and dwarfing dogmatism; to' hopeful effort In the light of larger knowledge, for righteous dally living, understand- lag righteousness to moan righteousness- being right, and wise enough to live rightly. The world must understand that Spiritualism In this high and Inclusive sense Is a revolutionary movement; not through blood or violence; not by brute force or bigoted per- secuuoo; but by giving deeper Insight and calling oar whole being Into new and harmonious Ufa and liberty,giving us something better than the outworn dogmas and unphi!-, oeophleal errors that the world Is leaving behind. Andrew Jackson Davis (The Seer. p. 153, vol. 3, Great HmrmouU) wrote wisely and eloquently, more than thirty yean ago, as follows; This philosophy.,,.is fetal to all Uieotwkalss- sojbdood* of supenuftotallatn.

The vast utility of such s spiritual philosophy 1* very tuantfeel In every thinking mind. It throws a new and beautiful light over the mental constitution of man. The aoal Is no longer s dreamy vaporous breath, a bubble tn the air, a thin and shapeless emu- tiloalloa of ethereal element* lloatlug otter death Into th* vortical depth* of Infinitude; oontdnu» yet lid destined, meditating yet unsubstantial aa th»i«ra- Ing breeae.

The Tribune of this city lately gave an account of a faith-healing meeting, held at the Adelphl Theater, at which a Mr. Kirkland bore testimony to the power of faith curing certain disease*. He wan followed by Miss Anna Wylie, or Mount Vernon, Hi., a very delicate, nervous-looking woman, who related in a tremulous voice how she had been healed by faith of spinal disease, -She had an injury to her back while young, and six years ago through overwork in a relative'«store tbe Insidious disease began gradually to steal upon her. For fon^ years she wo* very sick, and at.limes suffered the most terrible spasms, from whlel! none of her physicians could give her any relief. She gradually grow worse, and for the lost two years hud been quite helpless and the victim of the most excruciating agouy. She was carried on a conch tho house of a mag-,nolle healer, and his treatment gave her n Sittle relief for a time, but she soon became far worse than before. Her means were exhausted, and when every other hope won cut off site resolved to trust the Lord again for Iter cure. While she was laying'again or her bed praying she heard a voice sny, "Rise and kneel!" Sbp never doubted that it was find s voice, and, obeying the command, she arose and knelt. After she had been praying for about an hour the voice catge to her again saying, "Rise and walkp* She raised her head, but Just then aim claims that the tempter came and she was afraid that she coohl not walk, but site called on tbe Lord to help her, and raising herself straight up, walked a few steps. She had never slept two hours in succession for two years, but this night, in answer to prayer, she bad refreshing rest. Next morning she asked her mother for her clothes, and dressing herself went Into a front room, where she was able to sit in a large chair propped up with ph* io w v Her leg, which the night before had been all drawn up and shrunken, filled up and returned to its normal condition. In the afternoon the voice again whispered to hen "Arise and walk serosa the room, and putting her foot to the ground with her hand she walked three times across the room. Two days afterwards something touched her foot, and being In excessive pain she cried oat: "Lord, stop It, for Christ s sake!" In a moment the pain ceased, and all around her thero was a beautiful light, and she felt the presence of God breathing on her like a gentle wind. That night at 0 o'clock, when she was praying for relief from pain, the beautiful light again appeared all round, and site was lifted up in a floating sensation four or five feet from her bed, and heard the sumo voice saying; "Keep on praying; don t doubt, you will be heated."

"In order to Illustrate the Idea we wish to convey, wo give a few statements of an article that appeared In the New York Horfd, In relation to a prominent character In Utah Jacob namblln who figured conspicuously there several years ago. Odd day the Indians would try to All til* *kln fnr of arrows; on the next they would be around him asking him to make rain medicine. They would talk Momonlsm with him all ( ay and grunt approvingly; us nc.ni u night fill they would steal his horse, He wait always patching up peace between this tribe and that, yet every now and then they would CUtch him, have a rest ^mw-wow over him, ami, being unable Se-Bec I de whether he should be simply Hayed, or be roasted first over a charcoal lire, would let him go. with provisions and an escort for hi* home Journey. It is said ho began life ns a farmer near Chicago, but being baptized, he received at Once, as he claims, "Hie Immediate gift of the Holy Ghost," and then entered upon a curious career. Ho cured his neighbors of deadly ailments by the laying on of hands, and foretold conversions, deaths and other events with unvarying accuracy. By prolonged private meditation, he enjoyed what from his description one would suppose to be a pregiistation of the Buddhistic Nirvana, and after this so-called "miracles" became quite common-glace with him. He witnessed the "miracle" of the great quail fight«into the camp of the fugitive* and starving Sal nte In 1810, aud helped to collect the bird* and to eat them; he saw also the "miraculous" flights of seagulls that rescued the Mormons from starvation by destroying the locusts in But his persona] experiences, narrated with a simplicity of speech and unquestioning confidence that are bewildering, were, even more marvelous. If cattle were tost he could always dream where they were. If sickness prevailed he knew beforehand who would suffer, and which of th*%yvoald die, arol which of them recover. If Indians were about, he- asserted that angel«gave him, in hi* sleep the first warning of his danger. His sympathy with the Indians was, however. very early awakened, and being fully strengthened in it by the conciliatory Indian" policy of Brigham Young, he became before long the only recognized medium of friendly communication with them. Everybody, whether Federal ofllcink California emigrants, Mormon missionaries, or Indians themselves, enlisted his Influence, whenever trouble with the tribes was anticipated. His explanation of this inlluence is remarkable enough'. A* a young man, he say* he wm sometimes induced to join retributive expedition«. tout lie could never bring himself to fire at an Indian; and on one Occasion when ha'dld try to do so, his rifle kept missing lire, while the Lamanjte*," with equally Ineffectual efforts to shed his blood, kept on pin- cushioning the ground nil nround him with their futile arrows. After this, he and the Indians, whenever they met, saved each other * lives with punctual reciprocity. It appears that an Indian boy. whom' he adopted, became a stanch Mormon, and to the last, was In eommunlon^wltti the other world. On one occasion he was at St. George, aud one day when his, friends were starting on a mission to a neighboring tribe he took farewell of them "forever. "I am going on mission, too," lie said. "What do you mean?" Asked Hamblin. "Only that I shall be dead before you come buck. was the reply. I have seen myself in a dream preaching the gospel to a multitude of my people, and my ancestors were among them. So I know that 1 must be a spirit, too, before I can carry the Word to spirits.

Simple Rules to be Observed In Cases of irlfttlc^uholera.. At a recent meeting of the Chicago Eclectic Medical and Surgical Society, held at the Grand Pacific notcl, Dr. Edwin F. Rush presented tbe eobject of Astatic cholera, and the means of personal prevention and treatment, taking the ground that the public should be thoroughly Instructed os to means of prevention. diagnosing the first symptoms and early and prompt application of snltahle remedies, thus rendering It less dangerous and fatal. The Doctor claims that general measure«of prevention mast be carried oat by the municipal authorities, who should use deapotlc powers; ^Drinking water should be boiled, filtered, and led before use; food should be absolutely fresh and wholesome, animal food especially, which should be well cooked;-tbe person should be kept scrapa- lously clean and wholesome; all fatigue should be avoided, and perfect regularity In all habit* be observed; all excesses must be avoided,' Had liquor* shunned. The tiund should be kept at ease, aud the.dress be clean and adapted to the eesdon; the house should be kept In a perfect sanitary condition, the water-cloeet being frequently disinfected. With these precaution* there Is no more danger from cholera than from any other epidemic. The preventive treatment should consist of the ns«of add«which have the power of destroying the cholera microbe, such a* sulphuric acid largely dilute*), taken In small dose* In the morning; tincture of chloride of iron cool'd also bo recommended with great confidence. A fine combination to be kept tn the house i* a mlktnre of camphor. opium, Capsicum, ginger, and rhubarb of each one ounce. These should be mixed and taken In doses of ten to thirty drop«every ten to sixty mtnnten as soon as the firbt symptoms appear, and continue until profesnlonal aid is secured. The «Electric (Hrl. A short time ago we published aa extract from a medical Journal wherein the writer took the absurd position, that Lulu Hurst possesses no force that couid possibly cause the strauge manifestations that take place In her presence; but that the person who takes hold of any object that Lulu touches, " Knocks himself about!" Now comes a prominent physician of New York, who, speaking of one of Lulu s exhibit Ions there, says;" The experimenters seemed to be struggling, ami were struggling, but doing just tbe things they didn t want to. They don't believe It. of course. / don't deny the existence o f some unexplained poicer, but don t care enough about it to begin any investigation.

The New York.Sun says: " He tried to hold a chair while she laid one hand lightly oq it. He could do nothing with It, though he is an immense and powerful man.

Oh, tls most wonderful, said the Major. *1 can t describe it. The pressure Is very great. It s like nn immense weight equally distributed over the chair.

Miss Jlursl hnh been thoroughly tested In different parts o f the country by those who cannot be easily deceived.aud the verdict ha«almost invariably been that she possesses remarkable powers.

A Canada paper stateps'tlial the resident«of a littl^vlllage ribacwontreal, are greatly excited over the strange actions of a young lady who is at preeent stopping at the residence of her uncle, it appears that within the past t e f months she haa exhibited all the symptoms of somnambulism. While apparently asleep she would rise, and with her eyes tightly closed walk down stairs In perfect safety. U was found that after performing these singular feats she woutd.return to her bed, and on awakening In the morning could not recall the circumstance to mind. A short time ago her friends who regard her present state With great anxiety, tried an experiment. One evening recently, when she was found walking in her Bleep, a gentleman, procuring [ten and paper, requested her to write a letter. She obeyed mechanically, and Bitting down wrote a note to an absent friend, correct in every respect, although her eyes at the earns time were closed. A singular fact wo* that tho writing throughout wo* excellent, the word* being written, precisely along the line«,' At flmrshhe converses white in this state tfalte^reely and correctly. Recently,though exhibiting the same symptoms, she has kept her eye* open, which, howerer, only give a vacant stare. On one occasion,* while starting out tor a drive, she became unconscious and the next moment revived, only to be found In her old/tate. She was asked to drive, and at the bladlug of a friend took the reins. On returning home she became herself again, and when made acquainted with her strange action* felt greatly surprised. Tho young lady Is about eighteen years of age. Several doctors have expressed themselves as puzzled with the cose, and she will be taken to Boston to visit some of the lights of tbe medical profession to see if any relief can be afforded. «Dr. J.

A Greek phhofwphet'tflliongtitaf the Bplrit- worhl limy he wen by thifl myth freni itaut* lílt-ptibllc, given by Prof. Good win at thecloae of a lecture et Harvard Divinity School: A certain Kr won «fiuln lu battle; but. after ten day*, his body waa taken home in «mud condition, and. aa he waa lying on h In fuller* a] pile, he came to life and told hie experience. This soul, after leaving hln body, went on with many othere uniti they came to a strange place, whore there Were two cliaame In the earth,and opponile to them twochasms In the heavens above. By two theee souls were continually arriving^ from heaven or from beneath the earth, amt by the other two firmili were departing^!,eamiwnrd or «itili- ward. Between the two yialra of openings, indges were eented, who judged each soul as it aame before them, and sent the Just to the right by the road that led up to heaven, and the unjust to the left by the downward road that led beneath the earth. The non Is. as they arrivisi from heaven or earth, met' and conversed, and told what they had experl- entjeil In tbelr journey of one thousahd years. Those who came from above, clean arid pure, recounted delights and visions df beauty beyond belief. Those from the earth had received punishment for tbelr crimes, tenfold for each, that is once In every hundred year», which period corresponded to the possible length of human life. What he told about children who lived but a short time from their birth. Plato says la not worth mentioning. He does not tell whether these Infants were sent Into even temporary pun- Ish'ment for nqt being Platouista. Great crimínala were sometimes selected for special pnnishment. He happeued to hear one soul ask another, *' Where la Ardiwus the Great?" This ArdiieiH had been a tyrant in Kr's native land of Pamphylia a thousand year* before, and had murdered his aged father and elder brother, and committed other unholy acta,. The replywas: *' Ho has not come. He won't come this way." Then Kr was told that, when certain souls tried to pasa the mouth of the chasm leading from the earth, the mouth bellowed and refined them a passage; and there was no fear so great as this, that the terrible voice might be heard when any soul tried to pass ont. There savage men of ilery aspect, ho was told, stood ready to seize any who were thns forbidden to pass. Some of these were seen to seize Ardía n* and others of his kind and hind them hand and foot, and then throw them down and flog them with whips and drug them on brambles along the roadside, declaring to the spectators what were their crimes and what was to be their fate. Though the punishments of theao great offenders were terrible, the blessings which were awarded to the just were correspondingly great. They passed on, and In foar days came to a point from which they saw a perpendicular column of light passing through the whole heaven and the earth, like the rainbow In color, but purer and brighter. Another day brought them to tilia pillar of light, aud there they saw fastened to the middle uf the pillar the extremities of the chains which hold fast the heavens; for this column holds together the whole convexity of heaven. Prom these ends of the chains extended the spindle of Necessity, about which were made.all the celestial revolutions; and the tower end rested In the lap of Necessity. The whorl of tills spindle had eight concentric circles, representing the died atare, the live planets, the son and the moon. On each circle eat n siren, who went round with it, singing h single note. From the eight together a perfect harmony was heard. Near by sat on thrones the three Fates, daughters of Necessity, dad In while, with crowns on their heads, singing to the music of the sirens, Lachesis of the past, Clotho of the present. Atropos of the future. There a number was assigned to each soul by lot {except to Kr, who was to return.os a messenger to earth). Then patterns of lives were laid before them on tile ground, from which each soul, in the order or the numbers, was to choose a new life. There were lives of all sorts, of both animals and men. An Interpreter made a solemn proclamation in the name of Lachesis: Ephemeral souls, ye are now to begin a new cycle of mortal life. Your fate is not to choose you; ye are to choose your fate. Virtue knows no master: each of you, as he honors or dishonors her, shall have more or less of her. The chooser takes all the responsibility: God takes none. He who had the first number at once chose the greatest tyranny; but. In his greediness, be did not see that it Included the fate of *ie- voarlng Ills own children, lie, like most others who made ffimllar mistakes, had just f from l)eaveui(but those who had passed reary pilgrimage beneath the earth did nake thhir choice so careleasly. Most chose with.reference to their previous The ooul of Orpheus chose the life of a swan, through hatred of the female sex. refusing to be born of a woman. Thamyras chose that of a nightingale, ttheaam e time, he saw a swan choosing'p human life. The twentieth soul chose the' life of a Hon; this wastba eon! of Telamonlan Ajax, who would not be a man again because of the Injustice done him about the armor of Achilles. Next Agamemnon came, and chose the life of an eagle. Last of all was thesoul of itlyesesj-he searched carefnlly nntll he found the life of a private citizen free from care; and he said he»ho.nld have taken this even If be had drawn the first choice. Lacheéis gare each soni the divine guide who was to accompany it to the new lire. The first led the soul beneath the hand of Clotho and the revolution of her spindle, and thùa ratified the lot which each had chosen. Then the soni passed on to Atroppa, who by her spinning mabe the doom of Clotho irreversible. They finally passed under the throne of Necessity, and proceeded to the plain of Lethe, where they encamped by the river of Cnmindfalness, whose water no reseci can bold. All were compelled to drink a certain measure of this water; but those who were not eared by prudence drank too math, and each as he drank forgot all that had pawed. When they bad gone to r*st and it wan midnight, there was thunder and an earthquake; and suddenly they were all carried upward to their new birth, darting like meteor*. Kr himself, who drank none of the water, was yet unable to say how h i came back to hie body; bat be suddenly opened his eyes In the morning, and fonal himself lying on his own funeral-pile. And thus, u I ancon, *says Socrates, "the tale was eared and did not perish. And It may u t «us. if we will hearken to it; and then we»hall safely pass Lethe's stream and not be defiled In soul. And If we take my adrice,belterjng that the «ml Is Immortal and can endnre all that Is evil as well as all that Is good, we shall «Ter hold fast to the heavenly road, and erer practice justice with wisdom, so that we may be dear to one another and to the gods, not only while we remain here, bat *h» when we shall bear awav the prizes of virtue, like victors at the gomes receiving their gifts, and that we may erer prosper hereand during the journey of a thonsand yeare which we have just pawed through," * >i* i t f Drlt«P>Pbllknopbleal Joqnsd.

Jùtm- \Ai, of July m b. is on exceedingly interesting account of the experiences of the above college. Here we have an lu»titntion founded by philanthropist» as n public benefit, and not for private gain, and in which wo* recognized every know nor acce Died met hod of cure for human ailments. We find it hounded and persecuted before the courts by (not the citizens complaining of Injury done them) the old allopathic school-or "»elf-styled regular" medicai society of the county of New York, Its competitors in the healing art, and which trembled in fear of Its micce. We find the legislature of New- York; at two of its session», IHAl 2 and I8H2 3. passing by very handsome majorities bills which it Intended should legalize the charter of this Institution to the discomfiture of its enemies. The Governor (Cornell) approved the first bill, which the courts could not read as the legislature understood It. while the second bill, intended to place the charter beyond all doubt, wa» pocketed by fiovirnorf leveland for l he assorted reason that some other institution, Jess deserving, would be legalized under It. Next we find the legislature still determined that this college shall bo known as possessing Its confidence, passe* a bid declaring that the students educated at that institution shall be recognized over the length and breadth of the State of New York as thorough physicians, qualified to rank side by side wilh the highest and best physicians before the Court* aud before the people. This bill Governor Cleveland approved. Here. then, we have on the one aide theobt allopathic school. self-styled regular fraternity, attacking the college and its graduale». and on the oilier side both brandies nf the legislature at three several sessions endorsing aud sustaining them. Very well, what shall be the result? Shall the college die. aud with U Hie only medical "institution openly recognizing spirit power as u therapeutic ageney? It Is to be hoped not. There can be buttine logical result of another application to the New York Legislature fora pedal act legalizing the Institution. The legislature has asserted, three times, the competency of the institution and Ila desire to do justice. Let, then, the friends of the college again apply for a renewal of Its charter. The only objection which the legislature can take cognizance of Is that there Is a general luw for such purpoeesjtnd that It requires $00,000 capital to*^ -pa id-op and the sanctum of the Regents of iln> University. The reply to this may be that no medical college in the State possesses such a capital and that that feature was inserted In the general law, lid the law Itself drafted by the old school allopathic colleges to head oil competition; that there i* mil In the Statq a i ned teat college whlc.h Is not Incorporated by»pedal act, and that the State of New Yor.ksiili possesses the power to incorporate sudi a college the same way. t B R O N SO N M U R R A Y.

The training of some of three men was favorable to this. An Illustration was once given by an old man with whom 1 used chat la the Deltfhbcrnmd of Boscastle. One evening, iia we sat by the firselde, I referred to the old Minster church, not far oft,ln a romantic valley, and»poke of the curious, ghostly legends that floated about JL Yea, sir. said he, queer things have been said, and queer things h a» been met with, say what we whl I can tell youtotm tblnghfaat I knoyr to be true.

Mr. Th* farm was not far up from Urn valley, Tbe qiiwtion was hew they should know that he bad. been to the church. A plan was hit upon. He was to take a large spike nail and a hammer, and to drive the noli Into tbe church door.
