B e has counted rank and position as nothing, and without a thought sacrificed Ms wealth, feeling more than re paid. l i the cause he loved prospered, and bestowed on others the happiness he had found. Alexander Aksakof wits b o n In 1833, at Replolku, to the fortune of bis father, t i e overmnent of Penza, Russia. After havjg completed bis course of studies at the Imperial Lyceum of Si. Petersburg, an In. stitutlon privileged to the ancient nobility of-buraia, he entered oh a political career which, with little Interruption ho has fol lowed to the present. He Is a descendant of an eminent literary family f his Iffante, 0, Aksakof, is the author of many works which ore regarded os classical productions; his two sons, cousins of Alexander Aksakof, S Is proficient in the; Slavonic language, which has formed a distinguished feature In E ussibb history; the second, Ivan (John!, is one of the most dladngulshea literal ears and writers on pnblic law In the country. Notwithstanding these predisposing drcumatancea, and his love af the classics, Alexander Aksakof remained another year at the Lyceum, engaged In the studios be most delighted In, which were not those relating Ito literature and politics. lo his early youth by the exceptional droomstaneesot bis family, his attention was attracted to religious and philosophical questions.

Swedenborg bod applied this method only to certain parta of the Bible, and M. Aksakof extended his research, applying the science to the interpretation of the Evangelists word by word. He explained the lirst bin chapters of Bt. John which was a most difficult work to prepare himself to extend his reeearohes in all directions, And the better to teat the Old Testament, Be studied the Hebrew language. He found in the work of 8shre d'oltvet, Lo Larnnu hibrdiyi«restitute, the elements of a philosophy of the Hebrew cruel mar, widen he appropriated to devoted himself with the same Ardor with S T w W b enraptured sens«. Endowed by nature with a harmonicas character, philosophical and Intuitive; preeminently positive and systematic, whatever he studies he Is never oontent un---- 'y masters his subject In dings and details; hence when he entered thlscarrent of thought, he Latin. Swedenborg himself wrote to Latin, end M.Aksataif, when rendering the ideas of hla author Into Ttuaeian iottnd the knowl edge of the original absolutely necessary; and hero a new difficulty presented Itself. The style, o f Swedenborg Is peculiar, abounding In unique forms, and IS often obsoar». To make a perfect translation into Simple Hessian, M. Aksakof pursued for many years a thorough coarse of special philologlcal Studies, and of his native tongue. Ke began by a profound study of the B ia simi lo rig; age to assist him in thla research ; oeside toe liv in g language of t b r he had th e assistance of sm lnenl men of his country, and M. Dahl, eographer of Russia. Little by little thin eminent scholar exchanged his received, ideas for the doctrines of Bwedenborg, and became an adept In tbeir profound mean ing. It was on bis account that M. Alisakof published bis first work In Igei on Swedenborg: A Consistent Exposition of the Spiritual Sense of the Apocalypse, after "L'apocalypse B lville of that author; a work written In French but immediately translated into Itneslan by M. Dahl. An intimate friendship was the natural result of this nnlon of science and convic. to which ail bis studies r ritmi and theological, was ions of Swedenborg s works Into Russian. In thla task, he was assisted by the Interior sense of the works which an swered the supremo problem of our ex ist enee, ana and rewarara rewarded ano and ausiam«; sustained by oy the cne graffi; i Ideas by which... he was inspired. 1 In translation of Keavetf and-hell IBM Ms was published at LeipzE-. but It was compolled to await for more propitious times for its appearance in Russia. Swedenborg being the first of seers. It was natural that M. Aksakof ebonld take up the study of animal magnetism, and enjoy all works on spiritual revelations obtained In tbia manner, agreeing an they au did in essential poinla with Swedenborg. In w 1while searching the libraries, be came by chance on "Nature's Divine Revelations." by A. J. Davis. Tbe title did not attract his attention bat tbe cualiiicatlon otlu.e author, The Seer and Clairvoyant a t onoe impressed him. He was rejoiced to find most remarkable proofs or tbe principal points In the revelation offiwedenborg con cerning the Spirit-world. They dlflercd in dogmas concerning Christianity, it wss true, bat all Important, that only in dogmas, while (bey agreed In the great facts of Bpirit-exinenee. In order to form a correct judgment of both pbjslologjagl and psychological phono, menu, M. A k salffstones saw the necessity of a tborougb understanding of tbe exact sciences: the perfect comprehension of the spiritual man, necessitated the Understand ing of man physically. With this object In view, In 1SS5 he Inscribed himself as free student of tbe faculty of Medicine of the university of Moscow, and for twoyears pursued the studies of anatomy and physiology, and as supplimestary, chemistry and physics. He soon departed from the re straint Imposed by sdenttae authority, the resort o f bis experiments' in human magoet* a translation Into Russian and i at S t Petersburg In of paryl work entitled, Magnetic He-readily understood and eompreheoded by Intuition. This, with tbe French works on magnetism, gave him the first, and Incomplete Information of the jpiritual move ment In America, and with bis accustomed habit he at once sought all works Dealing on the subject, but fiunil in Russia an ab sence of all such books,and great difficulty In procuring them. Not until the end of ie(7, did he procure the works of Edmonds, Hare and the Revelations of Davis. The tendency of bis em men»ted Intellect had been progressive. Began by Swedenborg this tending received new Impulse by tbe Revelations" of Darts, and nil the corres ponding revelations from the ecstatic realm of the human soul. He studied with particular rind continu ous attention the v/orke on magnetism, philosophy and Spiritualism of Cahagnet whom in ifvgl he met St Pans. The reading of the consecnttve volumes of Davis and the grand works on Spiritualism completed tbe emancipation of his mind. In his preface to tbe translation of Swed enborg, ho gave the status of modern 0plr Itualiem, In its relation to the revelations of tbe great seer whereby be justified their puhllcatlue. The following Is an extract from this preface: Tbe theological works of Sweden borg have engendered a sect-n common and unfortunate- occurrence to tbe trans mission of grelrt Ideas, so much does man love the 'Jursre in verbs mujbbll1 Not withstanding all the spirituality and all the broadness of the philosophy, Ids disci ples rest with, tbe letter; astounded by the Immensity of bis revelations they will not go farther; for them It Is not a step advantlng to higher altitudes but, a finality, in the present work tbe tbeologlcd-dog. malic side is nos presented, but the more important Information of Swedenborg In regard to bis personal experience In tbe Spirit world; for us be Is not s theologian but a seer arid medium." This preface drew on I t Aksakof from the little circle of devotees to the doctrines of Swedenborg-of Grim he had been a member the moat violent recriminations. He was thus compiled most explicitly to give the reasons tor bis apuilacy. The result of this discussion was the publication of "the Rationalism of Swedent-org: a criticism of bis doctrines on tbe Bible. Leipzig, To this work was attached as an supendlx, the gospel according hr Rwedenborg. five chapters of tbe gospel of fit. John, and an exposition of tbelrspirltual sense according to the doctrine of corres pondences, M. Aksakof devoted himself during the years or IBM to 1887 to this exegettcal labor, which became a powerful lever of criticism for the perfect under standing of Swedenborg s theology. The object of his ileal work on Swedenborg, was to prove that bis rationalism was not imaginary; that the principle argument of Sweaenborg to prove tbe divinity of the Bible, was not rational, for this same method o f exposition which proved the excloatvelv divine character of the Testament, was alike capable of appucatlon to many other books of poetry und prose. In litastratlon, M. Aksakor, presented Dante, and the history of Nestor, of whom he gave tbe spiritual sense; and fartbermore not onlyon this cardinal pt-lnt.but otirer capital poeltions he showed, a» the ground ot Ms own proposing to lw iriatlonahand bv him self refuted,-'id coaxesueutly logically in consistent. We quote tbe last tin «of this work: My only object has beed to erclle re search, after truth: to cast Into tbe minds of the dlscip!«o first spark df doubt in tbe Infallibility of tbeir Master, and to deliver them from the magic circle, in which they are bound by tbeir faith In-the divinity of his revelations, which is the principal cause for tbeir melancholy Immobility, and eh genders intolerance and fanaticism in All. (P. 5187)» With all his prof-rand studies of Sweden borg. M. Aksakof did not cease to in vestigate tbe fundamental principle of religion In general, and of psychology in particular; one thing he regarded as inraniestable. that If the mystery which enshrouded the tinman soul was ever penetrated, aad-tbe fact of Individual Im mortal! ty ad mitted tn to the ranks of «dense, it must be bvtbe.assidnoos study of the phenomena cf Spiritnahtm. The works or Hardee began to penetrate Russia, and M- Aksakot had something to offer bis countrymen Bed although in s foreign language be promoted tbeir wide circulation. The materialistic tendency of the times led bfm to give a higher vs us to facts. With this obfeat In view be trans lated tbe work of Prof. Hare,and published it at Leipzig tn IS». Through this means he discovered another translator of Davis s works, H. Wtttig who at tbe prompting of tbe eminent naturalist and phllmuphah Fees von Esc-nv.-eck, bad translated many of Davis s works, but had nut yet found a pub Usher. The translation of Davis by M. Aksakot not yet receiving tbe Unction of the censor, bta attention while tn Parte tn IBdO, was called to Che stranae fact that not a single volnine of Davis s works was elthertnparisotlouduu.andtbetmpoasliiutty of providing anything for the Spin tuallst of hit own country. Induced him to effar Mr. fgbt ouig ^sks a ^taring. l%.z ZZr.o*m. I of this preface was given in Memoranda. Tbe first letters of M. Aksakof to Davis are reproduced. In Idrpi the Magic Staff" waa published, followed in 1 by the Revel ations." In hs7;; the Physician appeared with a leilgihy preface by M. Wlttigand another by M, Aksakof. Impelled by his unconquerable zeal to propagate the doc trines of Spiritualism be secured M_ Wlttlg to translate tbe principal works on that subject; of Hare. Orookra. Edmonds. Wal lace. Owen, and the report of tbe Dialectic Society. Finally, In order to Inform tbs Germas public of tbe progress of the movement, he In 1-71 began the publication of the " P ty M bbuc Htudiett," a Monthly devoted to tbe presentation of facts and tucorlej of Spirit, uulis»:. This journal has been favorably received by (ns scientific associates and is one of tbe must able, ' philosophical and scientific exponents of the cause it advoeut bowwere the new doctrines and Ak oakof received In Ruant»? The status of spiritualism may be tearnbd by an article written by him in i m, under tbe title Spiritualism In Russla. tind published in Humas Nature, and Which waa, after a time reproduced by M. Pierart In his "Councif of Free Thought, In M. Aksakof received no obstruction from the Russian censor, either in regard to Ms many German publications or his journal. Most fortunately the aclentifio class to whom he apianled. were much tetter ac quainted with German than English. Thanks to this circumstance.htagerman publications exerted a great effect In prop agating in their minds a true understand ing.of Spiritualism. In this manner be be came acquainted with it Yourkertteb, Professor of Philosophy Inthe University of Moscow, who Is not only ah admirer of Davis, bat also a zealous defender and ardent propagator of Spiritualism. He nev er e io w sb bis convictions, nor loses oc casion tospeak In public, and in the midstof bis colleagues in the university urges tbe importance or this qeertbra, Hu rook a dreo and v>tal interest In the publication«of M. Aksakof, and brought them all to the attention of the censor of the University. Unfortunately for the cause this eminent roan is no longer of this world. M. AfcsaJciif paid tribute to tbememoiy in anartlc.'e which he published In 187«Jn the Revue Russe, under tbe title of Medlumsblp and jclenee." In IB70 be -1 reposed lo M. Bontlerof, Profesaor of Chemistry In the University of bt. Petersburg, whose sister in-law, tbe cousin of M Akaidref. manifest«!! some degree of medlumslnn. to form a c irc le for lire Investigation of Spiritualism la an ex perimental manner. This noble scientist and lover ot truth, did not hesilaiek or«' moment. The circle was formed nsiullv of tour persons: tbe Professor..bis»Uter-tnlaw, Mrs. Aksakof, who was endowed with reoisrkakbte mediumfelic powers, and M. Aksakof, This was their first experience In Spiritualism, und they took no personal part >n tbe excitement of table turning. Tbe result of twenty «dances, attended by M. Buutlerbf, was the admission of tbe reality of thé phenomena. In 1S7L Mr. D. D Home arrived In fit. Petersburg; for tbe first time So the life of M Aksakof wss evidence of tbe grand and beautiful spiritual- msatfeatatton given through Mm, the truth ot which be has no doubt, hiving faith In tbe reliability of bumao testimony presented to him in such a manner that be.could out doubt. He was not tardy in furnishing 41 Routlerof the occasion to assist in similar séances ; and as the result, be was fully convinced, and a stance was given by Mr. Home to the Profew. /«of tbe University of»t Petersburg. The details of this «(once and tbe «m e r sien of Pr or. Boiitlcref b&s been raiotei by M. Aksakof In the Spiritualist," So. Ï1, ÎB71. When tbe experiences of Mr. Crookes, were published in tbe'quarterly Journal of Science.

Questions of the Life Within and Beyond. Wide Indeed is the range and rich Indeed Is the field open for the research and study of thoughtful men and women. Tbs motto over the portal of the temple In anelent Greece, Know thyself, appllee not only to man as a physical and Intellectual being: but still more to man's Inner life and to hie Infinite relations and far-reaching powers as a spiritual being; for the real wo, the man that hub and lit*«, In not the outward form that perishes, but the Inner life, ' the Immortal soul, the everlasting Individuality and personality. W ith man's Infinite capacity for Interior growth and development he cannot fully map ant or describe himself, Beyond h(s largest thought, above his loftiest Ideal of to-day, reaches out and towers up the larger thought and loftier Ideal of to-morrow, and so owh-day Is filled with new light aud life, and so comes the Joy of larger attainments l Ud finer Insight. Correspondents in our columns give th e ir own views: we do not nek or expect perfect agreement. Their dufereqcea stimulate thought and Inquiry. Many facta of clairvoyance and psychology and spiritpresence we give, from many quarters, and along with them the views and conclusions of the Writers, leaving the reader to "prove all things and hold fast only that which Is good" in the light of his own re a so n and Intuition or as tested by experience.. Last month an article from the English Herald of Progress: A clairvoyant Interviewed," found place in our pages, aiul ealled oat, hr the J ournal of June 18th, a protest and Inquiry from "Wayne, a valued Contributor and a clear and competent thinker. The. English article seemed to, convey the Idea that a malignant spirit, or a band of such, might blast and destroy the alms and hopes of a life on earth, and against such extent of malevolent power Wayne makes protest, cogent and true as It seems to us. The first article called i the second, and no gave us that timely and nw A d word. That Is the value of a "free patmment of varied thought. R H i L i a i O - n i l L O S O P H I O ^ L L J O U R N A L. JULY 2, 1881/ Here comes en epistle from John Covert1 and others, In Indiana, telling of some tallc with a Christian Spiritualist en the body, soul and spirit, In which they sa y : "The spirit or spiritual body, la composed of the five senses. Wo deeire especially to know what the spiritual body la composed of, and If Itandtbesonl are Inseparable, The beetanswer perhaps that the present state of spiritual science makes possible Is given as follows: "One great result of peycho-physlolegleal research Is to verify and establish the feet that man has a dual body an outer and physical form w ith Its external senses, and an Interior form, real yet Invisible, with Its finer spiritual senses; and that death destroys the outer body only to release the Inner form (which It does not and cannot touch) th at i t may enter the upward path to a higher life. Whan the m aterial eye la closed the clairvoyant eye opens, when the outward ear la sealed the clalraudient orspiritual sense awakens, and these Inner sensations are farthest-reaching and meet delicate. Sometimes they are active In this life (as In clairvoyants and spirit seen), In the next life they m ay' give broader range and finer perception-to the spirit. The coexistence of these two bodies In this life pn earth, their separation at death, and' the continued organic existence of the inner or spiritual body, make a rational psychology possible, and open the true relatione between mind rad matter, the visible and the Invisible, ei nothing else cun. * Spiritual science.and peyeho-physlologlcal research have made the greatest addition of our ago to our knowledge and systematic conception of tha life of man; lie phenomena, relations, and future continuity. They are teaching ns th at the spiritual life and thought of man Inheres In an Interior and lasting organization, a fine body, of a substance Invisible and aupra-physlcal. not In any gland or vessel,or tlbsueorstructure that death can dissolve." By this statement (for whloh ece "After Dogmatic Theology W hat, by 0. B. Stabbins, pp, 71-74), life am n e w lose our personal and individual being, can rarer be reincarnated, tint will be ourselves in immortality. ' What Mew York Preachers Think and Say.

That place la a thriving village, b ut It is "a grant ways from Chicago, as a modest auctioneer once said here, yet too village m ust not be slighted, even In Now York there are souls to save. On the. Sunday above named, Talmadgo waxed hot hgalnst prevalent bribery and the notorious Justin D. Fulton groaned over the metal collapse of the land; as both these gentlemen bays had their divinity doctored, are both given to making a big else, and are not any more honest or moral than average pagans In the streets, their talk Is of no special moment. W ard Beecher come to the conclusion that "God did not make men to damn them," Of course he knows that If men act badly they reach the ragged edge of the golf of despair; yet hope still abides, contrition and good works bridge the chasm. Dr. John Ball bald forth lb his 8200,000 untaxed chapel of ease for rich Christians on the fellowship of man and God; good words In his discourse, but the poor want the gospel and can't pay to have It em that gorgeous plan. Dr, Bellows talked sensibly on the error of claiming verbal inspiration for the Bible, and hoped for a Unitarian version some day, Dr. Newman, Method. 1st, treated of life beyond the grave.about as the Spiritualists do. Dr. Lusky, Methodist, held that God made man as the Bible teaches. In a Unitarian church Rev. B. N. Bellows taught that future suffering was of the troubled conscience and sedbibly anld th at we live In heaven or hell here as we elect and act, Baptist clergymen held a tent service in'the street, a worthy effort to reach the "poor In spirit," and Robert Collyerhad fragrant words on the wild lilies that Jesus loved. Such Is a glimpse or what passed In a fsw of many churches. It Is a good sign that sermons are thus reported, leaving readers to their own judgment. Who Is It?

Who can this flexible me n na?. ' Flippant Falsehood la Chicago Tribune. Here la more of the filppant Impudence of the Chicago T ritons wise man. In a contemptible article on "Societies for th e ' suppression of Man, he tells of A certain olasa of females who spend the major portion of their tim e In hiring hails for the purpose of holding conventions, and denouncing as abandoned villains au persona who venture to think that woman's proper sphere Is her home. * Women who take a part In matrimony and motherhood are not the kind th at wfll find congenial spirits in the ranks of the woman suffragists.

Whataoeoree Insult to such women a«elizabeth Cady Stanton, mother of six manly sons and a daughter, beloved by them all In the home made delightful by her; Luoretla Mott, beautiful amidst her ekldren who bites her deer memory : and Mrs. Wallace of Indiana, honored wife of ex-governor Wallace, la this grots falsehood. And this In the Chicago Tribune/ Rev. Stopford Brooke Is an English Episcopal clergyman whohau left th at church and come out as on Independent preacher. Ho is a man of thqggbt and ability, and his Independent step Is good. He has published a volume of sermons on "Truth and Freedom," In which Is much of value, but his views on Spiritualism araelmply absurd and shallow. The Alliance, of this city, gives a synopsis of them, as follows: "One of the most Interesting sermons In whloh makes spiritual truths dependent on w hat speaks to the senses. Miracle Is discussed, sensations!ism In literature, the t after exalting sermons, ritualism and. valient. B ut open nothing are truer words said, and words which American society needs just now, than upon the m atter of Spiritualism. 'The mblancboly super. Btition which is called bo Ixonloally Spiritualism,' says Mr. Brooke, 'unfits Its votaries for their dally work. Some play with It and It does them littlo harm : hut others but impossible. In which duty becomes a bimleu If It separate them from their experiments. In which It seems better to sit at a table slothfully waiting for a spiritual duty there against tbe evil. I t is there,, in faithful following of him, that we shall have spiritual com munleatlous; It Is thorc. In self-sacrificing action, th atw e shall feel inspired by God to sot and speak; it Is there that we ehall realize our communication w ith the host of dll groat spirits, In enduring like thorn nil things for the troth. Spiritualisin Is not spiritual, but material, and It does not ennoble. The true supernatural is not the mlracu!ous,but tbe purely spiritual; ndt tha manifestation of things which astonish the tenses, but the revelation of things which ennoble the spirit. "Every day, however, fewer persons are likely to be swept away by tblo spiritual quackery: for as the ozone of scientific knowledge Is added to onr social atmosphere, these corrupt growths dwindle and die. B ut It is Important to say th at they enfeeble the Intellect aud do harm to Christianity. No man can long float In the misty region of pale speculation.bn which these exhibitions Involve him, speculation which etartsifrom no fixed point and aims at nothing nor be tossed about by the Inconsequence of the so-called phenomena, w ithout leeling his Intellect ebbing away and bis manliness departing. They render the reason a useless h a rt of our beldg. "One of the greatest evils whloh arise from the encouragement of charlatanry of this kind In connection with religion and period K,,_j, lon, by» consent of their several profesm, will advance together. I t causes scl- jtlfln men to think that everything-"connected with religion la Inimical to the mathto the thought ting before them a false BupetnaluraUsm. I t thro ws contempt upon and degrades the notion of a spiritual world. I t increases a credulity on the one hand which leads to a groas n Ism. "One element of good hope, however, attends Its appearance among us. The spirit In society which It feeds bos almost always In conjunction w ith. a spiflt of unbelief with which it Is connected, preceded a revolution of thought. I t was so before the teaching of Christianity, I t was so before the rise of tbe Reformation. It was so before the outburst of new Ideas which gave force to the early days of the French revolution. I have hope th at this blind confusion, this tossing together of the elements of oredullty and unbelief, will oreate, In a reaction from them, a rational and liberal faith." No donbt there are Spirite«llat8, who get into an excited, Inoperative unhealthy condition," b ut does that make Spiritualism "a melancholy superstition?" Rev. Mr, Brooks colls himself a Christian preacher, yet "the excited and unhealthy condition" Into whloh u great many Christiana have fallen, groaning, sitting in idle raptureajastingdrilling heretics for Christ's sskababbllng and abonting for bell,the.dev- U, the w rath of God, and-the blood of Jesus, as dogmas to be believed or damned for unbelief, make the alleged vagaries of Spiritualists sober sense and delightful charity In comparison. Why does not this clergyman call Christianity a melancholy superstition?" His assertion about Its votaries being "unfitted for their dally tasks, is a bold misstatement, barren of proof, The margin of fanatics or fools, aucb as hong on the verge of any new movement, we grant; the solid body of adherents ore and women 'UlUgnnt in business" as well "fervent to spirit," kings and queens of fa, dustry. masters in Material things, builders of mechanism, intelligent and thoughtful men and women., He says: "The tree supernatural is not the miraculous. Not a Spiritualist teacher can be found who believes In miracles facts under natural law make op oar phenomena. Ignorant Indeed Is this preacher on these matters. We say Ignorant as mildest; for If not that It is worse. His talk about scientific quackery la shallow to the presence of Wallace, Crookes, Zotlner and their peers, and his poor babblesbont floating in the misty region of pole speculation, tho "Inconsequence of the so-called phenomena and "reason a useless port of our being," reveals the narrowness of his knowledge and tho perverxlon of hie prejudice«. When he tells how It Increases an unbelief which leads to gross materialism' he glvee most signal proof of bis superficial views, for the meat bitter anemias of Splrttohllsm are thoa^ yei j m aterialists on the one side, and the bigots In the dogmatic chorefcoa on the cther.rer. Stopford Brooke being In their company and using bare assertion to backup false statem ent as has bean the way of prejudiced bigots In alt agee. ' Instead of this "charlatanry" being a barrier to the way of the unity of science and religion, It Is to spiritualize materialistic science, to rationalize and break up dogmatic theology and so wed a larger science to natural religion. Had Mr. Brooke criticised the follies and external tendencies of certain types and abuses of Spiritualism, it would have been a different matter, but his assault Is wholesale lifipudont and prlcetly backed up by assertion without proof. The Alliance has no word of dissent, but rather gives endorsement. We have lopked to It for larger views and a different spirit. Is it about to take a backward step? In eueh assaults on Spiritualism It will be to unity w ith all bigots to the dogmatic sects, and all bigots among materialists and atheists an unholy alliance. Isgerooll s Copyright, I t appears from the New Y ork Herald th at " Col. Ingersoll's suit for piracy against a Chicago publisher Is likely to bring up one of tho most interesting copyright questions ever raised to this country. We say likely, for while it does not yet appear on what ground the alleged offender will claim the right to traffic In thé orator's brilliant periods, It is safe to assume that he will seek to rout h is,assailant by (claiming that the literary wares of the great heretic ore ungodly, and, therefore, without the pale of the law. Whether the tow will recognize and protect property fa blasphemous publications, la a question that bae come before the English courts several times, but has never been passed upon by an American judge. When Chancellor of England, Lord Eldon, declaring 'T h a t tha tow does not give protection to those who Oontradlct the Scriptures,' refused to restrain the piratical publication of Sir William Lawrence's lectures before the London College of Surgeons, for the reason th a t they were said to throw doubl on the doctrine of the Immortality of the eoul The same judge also refused protection to ' Cato out of scrupulous doubts as to Its religious tendency, which appear not to have been shared by Sir Walter Scott when he wrote, In accepting'tbe dedication of a poem, th at Byron had certalnlv matched Milton on his own ground."1 The Herald goes «m to say : "O fcourse,as Judge Story has pointed out In Criticising these decisions of Lord Eldon. If the right of property Is left to depend on questions of religious belief, the decision of the court may turn on the theological bent of the judge, Just as equity was once said to hinge on the length of the chancellor s toot, indeed, a case that gives point to this view has recently, arisen In a Scotch court. A 'L ife of Obrtat, written by a Unitarian minister, was pirated by a brothor dlvtae of the Trinitarian faith, who, wnen sued for piracy, answered that the work was blasphemous and heretical, because It denied tbe doctrine of tbs trinity. The J udge did not concur In this view, and i judgment against the- misguided de- lout. B ut another m agistrate m ight have been led by conscientious convictions to a different conclusion. "W e donbt if the Middle-Age doctrines of Lord Eldon will find much favor In any S toned American court. AU who are t th at godless man among us, have :ht to unite In denouncing him - and hie blasphemous preaching. His more devout enemies may labor to p ut him down by argument, may damn him with righteous Indignation, or. as did the pious haters of Theodora Parker to too Boston Park Church prayer meetings, may pray toe Lord to put a hook to his jaws th at he be silenced UDUCWIUUliaiUlJ PUD WUUO uin govern his right to be paid for lecturing o toe title to hs house in Washington."

Hall took b flask from his pocket and offered some whisky to the lad. Aa he refused, Mr. Halt, to tost him, offered him twenty-five cents, then sixty, then a dollar, then five; but toe boy, though his Jacket was ragged, remained firm, and pulling a temperance medal from h u pocket, said: '"Tor all the money your honor Is worth I would not break my pledge," The medal bad been given him by a father on hie dying bed, who used to be a drunkard, bnt hart become a sober man through tbe total abstinence movement. Mr. H all threw tbe flask Into the lake beside which they stood, and both were ever after devoted teetotalers, working with voice and pen. The llnhness of a boy brought two noble workers Into the ranks. Conyregattonalist.

KELIGZ OPHILOSOÌ?HICÀL JOUK^ST^L. -* Abase of Quinine. E.M. Hale, M, D. Of this city, writes the Chicago Tribune on this Important subject. Bead anil think of what he says, partly reported as follows: B utjet me say th at l a s notone of those s abusa by the profession mony and m ercury I t ought to be known that quinine is much a poison In over-doses ns arsenic. In massive doses it will cause all the pheubmena of collapscipernlclons congestions and serious lesions of the brain.

It often precipitates jks of apoplexy, mania and.lnmnfty, which milder treatemeut could ward i ff; In my own personal experience, I can point to hundreds of persons in Chicago who lave been irreparably.injured by this drug. There Is a worse aspect, however, than li occasional abuse, 1 allude to Ira continui - use, Wbc.Ta person has been subjected to Its abuse for a length of time.

The enormous amount Of the rinrirana alkaloids which Is used In this country calls, we think, fop some special attention on the part of the medical profession. It la asserted by a writer in New Hemedlte that the total annual consumption of quinine throughout the world la two hundred and thirty thousand pounds. Of tbls.over one-fourth Is consumed In the United States alone. Yet, for every prescription of quinine which a doctor given, the druggist receives ten or twelve calls for the drug by persona who ars treating themselves. If a man her it cold he procures quinine; if he feeia'blflons' he buys quinine. If he has eaten too much or cannot eat enough he takes quinine.

If wo are to havo mil itary men of strong bodies and steady nerves, to bacco must be kept from them, at lou t during tbo period of growth. Tobacco is *!«o prohibited to tbo Undent* of Girard College, Philadelphia. General Grant wbon vuittog there, being toformed of tbta fact, said, That * right Tboy aro not so apt to take It after thoy get out then/ Most men who are tbemselve* tobacco user*, would, Sf, possible, provent tbelr tona and all other boys from getting loto tho same habit While tho oso of tobacco undoubtedly Injure«meo, It Is much more injurious to those who havo not yet attained their growth. It outs off from tho height of datnc, also from the length of life. "The British Me&kal Journal say* that a certain doctor, noticing that a very large number of boya under fifteen years of age wern tobacco users,was Iod to Inquire Into tbo effect the habit had upon their general health. Ho look for his purpose thirty eight boys, sgod from nine to fifteen, and carefully examined them. In tweety-aeven of them ho observed injurious trace* of tho habit.

In i thoro was frequent blcedli -_d disturbed sleep; twclvo.h lion of tho mucous membrane of tho mouth, which disappeared oa ceasing from tiro use of to bacco for some days. Tho doctor treated thorn all for weakness, but with little effect until the smoking was discontinued, wbtm health and strength wer«soon restored. flclentlfio Investigation shown also that the use or tobacco by boys la decidedly Injurious to tho brain and mind. In lfwi tbo Etnporor Napoleon, learning that paralysis had Increased with the Inorojuic of Ihe tobacco revenue, ordered an exam ination of the schools and colleges, sad flndlpg that the uveragustanding In both scholarship ana character w<w tower among tboee who used tho weed than among the Abstainers, issued an edict forbidding Its uso In all the nation al.

In this article Dr. Mansfield's character for honesty and truthfulness In severely condemned without extenuation: and the errors and failures that occurred In swers given by him to the Inquiries contallied la sealed letters are represented «a due to Ibis own personal dishonest contrly&uce, a Bel hoi tfia result ot inilueucea or circumstances duo to the exercise of ibis tiiedluinshlp. and the action of general laws governing all medlnmaup.1 f have read of ; mc«t remarkable testa ol bp:: It Identity given through Dr, M, have toon told by personal friends of others, and havereceived several myself; and I scarcely think any fair-minded, reasoning men, who Is acquainted with Dr, M-, and the facta connected with Ms mtotnmihtn will deny that he is a most remarkable medium for spirit* wrltlng, and Impression, being clairvoyant and clalraudlent to ft meet singular extent, and thus capable of receiving all the testa that are giv en him by spirits coming within his sphere. But, It Is eald, he falls sometimes. Well, suppose he falls five or ton times as often aa 'be succeeds, for the general purpose of his rcedliimslilp that would be immaterial. It cannot be'denied that he does succeed quite of ten In what proportion of esses, proba, lib, no one knows. He himself doss not know I be, obviously, cannot know. Mr. Coleman docs tint Bay tbawbr, tl. never succceds In Writing a genttlnateat communleutlon, but he seems desirous of giving Impress ions that such Ii\the case, and that to is "propagating an extensive delusion all over the lurid,r If tbl* Is true, it behooves all lovers of truth to unite against him. and endeavor to atop the spread ot this and all other Spiritualistic delusions. But what dees Mr, U.say in order to explain away whut hove teen regarded as Indubitable testa V He confesses and avoids by alleging Impoaltlou,of various kinds: (l) Should Mr. Mansfield, In the course of his lobgexpwience in spiritual matters m a wah Spiritualists have toepmo acquainted with the names of any firfeadi of the party writing the letter for answer of of the eplrlt addressed, or Is possessed of any Information concerning the writer and his eplrlt friend not referred to In the sealed letter, such names or such information fs opt to appear In the answer to the sealed letter. (2) Should the party 'sending the seated letter, of hie friends or ralatlvea, and" letters would require ««small amount of time. The guarded expressions In this arraignment attracted my attention as they will that of others: Apt to appear'' In almost, i f not quite all, such omm"(hundreds of thousands) tuarly olioaps," etc, Now It is obvious that no nuoh nllognttoua can resmaabiy or Intelligently to made. No person can know enough to make them. All that can to known is: (l) That Dr. Mansfield writes spirit communication«; (a) that some are ganulnoi (Ur. Coleman cannot deny this); (3) that some are not genuine (or rather do not contain any team of genuineness): (I) that he bos written n vast number ( 'several hundred thousand," Mr. 0. eays) of such letters as well as ana were to'queetlons propounded by sitters, ra, during the last thirty yoare, Now, how can any person undertuke to say, exby a rude estimate, or according to his gwu limited experience! what proportion of these weretreeor entree» Undoubtedly, It would "to Interratine to know this ex aoti; but it Id not at all neoeuam It would prove nothing aa an inde pendentif act; for we cao» aa Í have found* come to no reliable conoluaion In regard to ftsplrit communication, unless we kuow (1) the medium who gives & g Ä Ä S S Ä toi l " Urte nee e In profeafllonal----- r o f e _ ~ pa) mg anything like homage toauyr.,» tommiinïoitturitaeif to In subsequent letters, it ie found that very often ouch previously stated names etc., appear in answer to these subsequent letters.

Under certain circumstances, as the condition of the medium, the nature of the inquiry, the object of the communication, the power of the control, etc., tbia may easily be accomplished, ns Investigators have often experienced; and, 1 need not say that some.of lower, fun-loving, mlachlevdua spirit«are very smart t for ofl takes a great deal more than, and something very different from.

Of course, there are many Other points to be considered, but the space dees hot permit We need a whole volume. greperly to treat thoi subject of spirit Men- I should like to discuss.the sloven polnte of Mr. Coleman's article in the light o t my own experience; but I do notttenk they are relevant to the queatlon of Issue-, The remedy for the difficulty complained to an increase of intelligence aa to thenatare of spirit Intercourse: for this will prevent an overweening confidence In the ability of aoy medium to give Invariably correct answer to spirit letters.

They maw get a correct anower: each things freqoentiy happen: but It to uot alwaya the result; and When there is a failure they are not justified in condemning the medium. I have written the above in the Interest of truth and Justice.

This la true, also, of Mr. Flint, who Is a good medium, but at conrea cannot do Impossibilities. People must atvray these tilinga and learn to be reasonable; and mediums flhoutd be careful not to undertake more than they oan perform. I certainly agree with Mr. Snow, when be says of Dr. Man»Belli: There to every reason for believing that this well and favorable known individual to a germine almost perfect mechanical writing medium, hto hand moving without Jilo consolons agtmoy; he cm oven convenio freelv then, of what to written oan be rightly attributed to Mm except In a subordínate sense as the accessory instrument through whom the work is done.

A Boston Jonrnal,having quoted from» lecture of Joseph Cook, in Dumfries, Scot land,in which that brazen falsifier tried to make out that Uobert Baras was essentially ethodox 111 religion, Her. Dr.Cordner (Unitarian) gave the facts In the Boston Transcript as follows. We recommend Cook, to read the Transcript. A paragraph published In a morning paper has informed the publie that Joseph Cook lectured in Dumfries, Scotland, on the 3dalt., to a great audience, and took occasion to use the following language pertaining to Hubert Burns: "Robert Bums was in conviction, whatever lie may have been In portions of bis practice,tolerably loyal to your Scottish Evangelical Confession/ And. by way, I Boppose.of confirming this slatemont, Mr. Cook refers to some simple reiigious note of Burns, all of whloh, however, are of a kind acquired or sanctioned by all confessions, whether Evangelical or non-evan gullcal.bo called. The Westminster Confession, notoriously Oalvlnlstlo, is the recognized standard of Ucotttoh orthodox theology. Mr. Cook, of court» to familiar with Confession; but whether he Is equally familiar with the mind and thought ot Burrs lauoabtfol. Burus's attitude toward Orthod. xy wan regarded in quite a different light from that of loyalty by the orthodox folks of Me own time. Allan gtrnnlngham tells us that he spoke of Calvinism with a -laütudo of language which grieved pions ItApers: An orthodox preacher discerned a manifestation of Heaven's wrath on the day of the poet's funeral. In theology as 1m polities. Hurra was a libérai. Tbs Scottish Church, In hto tlme.was divided Into two partira,old Light, or orthodox, and new Light or liberal. Burns ranked himself squarely with the new Light party. The Church had an alarm aa now, on the score of heresy. Burns -----part in it; and this to how he writes in the Klrk e alarnrv Orthodox. OKhodox, Who believe Ir.Jobh Knox, Let mo iogml m atora Vo Jour conuclenco; Has boeu blown in Ui«vrul, That what to not sonso mnflt be nousonre, Doctor Mac, Dueler Mu, reehnll stretch on a rack.

M y friend, Mr, Wm Ernm etle Coleman, I sea has dw n ud it tent to. practice gome surgery upon.mr. 1. V- Mansfield o f N ew Y ork. FesHdg deeply now sacred are the rights of personal character and especially or medicinali ip which the world at largo so tsmstaamy misunderstands and abuses, 1 desire to say som ething on this yéfy case. Mr Coleman, no doubt, desires t o warn t he public against deception and fraud and to root o a t overjtl.u.k falso from our imeni! ranie, which Is commendable, as there w ill alw ays he a great deal of counterfeiting of that Which is especia'ly good find attractive.

A lthough 1 have known Mr. Ham fiel 1 for years, I o f course am not In- fallible and cannot say that h e nas never p-acflced a singla deception, b a t. 1 know that be has m anifestada great deal of remarkable toedlum shlp as attested by Judge Edmonds, Prof. Britten, Rev, Samuel Wat. son,-judge Carter and a host of others. Judge Edmonds speaks o f h is w riting In fourteen languages and J udge Carter, whose office is neat to mine says he has received messages lo Swedish -nod other It w ith w hich Mr. Mansfield w ss r l acquainted. Several years ago question In h is office and folded the paper tea tim es so th at no mortal eye could read It The question was oorrectly answered before toy eyes and the n mes and relationsh ip o f several relatives were given, although these nam es were not on th e paper, were n ot in m y.thoughts and 1 believe were not known by any person In Now York City. Think o f th e thousands o f persons w ho have received am * teats from him and the multitudes who have bean brought Into tho joy givin g gospel of Bplrltuatopi by fats mean*. When Hr. Cotetnan signifies that Mr. Mansfield has written "several hundred thousand bogus tetters, for each of which he tun received five or three dollars and four postage stamps." the rolrew cnient is Immense. 1 urn Informed by hiiusrir that he esu answer only from three to five nf these letters per day. and I know.

Had ho atiswer-d five letiera every day In the jeer f r ih in y years the ziumrer would he only 1,-1 7«7 in stead of moi-tof these b ein g bogus leilers.'' Induing from a Bomowhai esten -lve «rs-rieoee w ith reference to them, 1 le-lleve that tt m sjorlly of I hem have contained genuine testa Mr. Mansfield adm its that In some cases Ins guidre can not gel. into the sphere of certain persons so us to give cor rent tests, htid a person m ust be very Ignor- s in of m edlorashlp and Its subtle law s il he does nut understood how It la that such things occur.

Mr. Mansfield saw how exactly this and otlmr ease* which 1 gave, fitted Into his own experience and wrot* a letter, warmly thanking me for my unim e. Dome years sun. seven men la N ew York City, the tmoretl even, as they m ight be called, io-,k It lore their conceited in-ad- hi explode tho fallacy of Bplrltiialiam and save their friends from being doped. A s they stated In the N ew York World,They were determined to put down fiptriluallstu and destroy its mediums, hut did not g iv e the least hint that they desired to learn w hether it was true or fir true. They w ent to Mr. Muosll-ld with he to their words and ui their actions and so psychologlz-d the medium and m ix d up the controlling spirit that they g<itfai-e- huod as they m luht have expected, bad they not been Ignorant of there subtle tews. Then tney brought him before the courts for g aining money on fats- pretences. They hob-nobbed w lih the Judge wlio was an Irish Catholic, Sept him well liquored tip Iind-Uiu* worked them selves into hts g.aid grecre. J remember that Brick" P -m rn y, who w as a w itness on Mr. Mansfield's side, utterly non-ptused their lawyer and the.riacreil seven.' by turning all their guns agaiu it them selves by means or his ready w it end bis know ledge of the case. Finally when they declared that they could d o e very, thing that Mr. Msusfield could, Mr. Mansfield witn an uncontrollable burst of indignation rose and told them that he could take the whole audience and tell the natm-s o f their fathers, m others or other friends In spirit life, sod challenged bis persecutors to do the sam e, right there end then. The Judge asked tbelr law yer if he would he satisfied to have the m atter tested on the spot, a t w hich the law yer began to quibble, the "seven," throw s evidently Into som e consternation, whispered to 'th e ir lawyer and they backed dow n m ost fgnom lnlously and completely. Truth and Justice were not w hat they w anted, but victory, and victory they dually got by m eans u fa Judae. whose bigoted religion would not tolerate a spiritual manifestation. Me. Coleman quotes from a Psychom etric delineation o f his character m which it is stated that h e has an ax e to grind." "will- in g to work for money," etc. Yes, I think be has a fair love of money, lint 1 think the expressions glv e a n incorrect Impression of him, as be is also very liberal w ith his m oney and is still a poor loan. I asked him once it it would not be w ed to return the money whea he felted to gtve correct tests. He signified that the labor was as exhausting when ho felled as when he succeeded ano that he oonld not afford to give the tim e w ithout compensation. I t seem s to me, however, that in such cases it would be fair for him to divide the m atter w ith bis customers and at least return h alf o f tb* money to them. Mr. Coleman signifies th a t-in different letters there is a certain almilari ty of expression. T his I edm lt,asfor Instance, the double xpreasion "blcaa you. bless you, Is eome- tim ss given when purporting to come from different epirtts. T his is sad ly accounted for when w e remember that th e different spirits m ust work in connection with the m ental aura o f the m edium s brain, using more or less the vary word channels that he finds impressed thereon. A spirit that la cot positive to the medium cannot control him sufficiently to g iv e so arbitrary a thing as a nam e, and m ust forget som a of tbe most fam iliar things while enveloped by the radiation» of the medium. On this account a communication may be three- fourths m edium and onefourth spirit, and a t other tim es d m e m a, and this to eases of perfect honesty on both rides. And j e t m m of the world get! fing a communication w hich they- find inaccurate, will at once denounce the medium as a freed and bring Sn a M thing». The psyebometrist quoted by Mr. Coleman ssy sa r Mr. Mansfield, "he can hear anything In th e world and keep os immovable ae th is stove.

Hut they must be allpwod to mark ont their own work Bfif! Iho problem as presented by lira twenty miff loo does not come In echsposulta. bln to bo dealt with by rigorous scientific methods. Tiro men of science begin by doubting, and cultivating tills state of mind os a virtue; they continue to doubt until evidence extorts acquiescence, while assent even then goes an further than to thlnge regarded as actually proved; the twenty million on the contrary, begin by believing, hold this state ol mind to he a virtue, snd go on believing with, out much perplexing themselves over- questions of evidence.

There have been miselonoiy scandals before. now (we recall toe first English mission to toe Sonto Bea Islands); but It Is a long time since so had a case has come to ligh t as that at toe Blaatyre Mission, near the southern end of Lake ripassa, In Central Africa. Tho atrocious cruelly with which the missionary lo charge ot this elation o f toe Established ieoteh Church has exercised civil authority, Inelsdlng even capititi punishment, is beyond conception. It is fro toe repente of toe in vìi ligating com- mittec sent ont by the General Assembly of this Church that we oblatn.toe tecta. It baa aotabielded its own agents. The Am biam o must rest on the Scotch cerilmittca in charge Of the mission. It was their business to know that It was contrary to an A ct of Parliament, and, yet they Instructed Ihelr agents to exercise unlimited civil authority in toe territory vfhjoh they had purchased and where they bad their adulón and colony.

I f other missions In sav- age countries have similar Instructions, w s - had better koow i t. But the chief fault belongs alone, but the arthransand trade» connected with them. Allowing toot It was their butl- n*ss to preaerveoivll order acdptm lsli crimes, their method o f doing, this wei shocking lo toe extreme. An innocent man waa charged with-stealing besda. Without trials t o was stripped en o u egged" moat frightfully with new - rhinoceros-hide whljra. He was put to stocks «ever el day», to make him confess;, and Uteo flogged again, till hla body and face were horribly cut and swollen- A mao convicted of murder was executed by having half a dozen rlltoahota fired at him by natives, la toot toe way to^reach(koodtmtog»! to toil Christian.

Hplrltnaltooi An Outside View. On oar first page 1«an article headed Spiritualism, by George B. Uerrlam, from the Chrirlicn Register, the Boston U nits rlnn Journal. We give It place because It Is w ell to m o bow we appear to on outside observer and thinker who almo to be fair, and because it Bhowe not only a fair spirit but also the im perfect conceptions and know ledge o f a candid observer. It'm ay be. too, that come crudities and imperfections of oor ow n have helped to some of hlo m isconceptions, In w hich case that w ill be a stim ulu s to care nnd character on our part The 'bitter prejudice and flagrant Injustice toward the facte o f splrlt-preeenco slow ly wearing away. A s there deoreaaeta better conception o f the philosophy o f I Ife and the spiritual culture and natural religion toward which those facts point and which they emphasize and vortfypwlll come. N o m arvel that the prejudlca-figalnst spirit phenomena breaks away, (for they nre. everywhere penetrating oil classes and teaching tho hom es of poor and rich, of Ignorant and educated alike. Private modi- umshtp is spreading w ith a silent and subtle InOuetK». and many o f our best public m ediums are Invited among people high in octal life and leading In Oh arch and Brute, for confidential circles. A few m onths since, a medium told ns of going to tin eastern city for a week, ospeolally to m eet shme tw enty m en end women, alt loading church members-und all greatly interested In wbat they witnessed. Snob persons cannot forget su ch experiences. Sittin g under the drone of the dull pulpit they wlu think,and w hile they m use the sacred spiritual fire w ill burn. Our books and journals, too, go everywhere, and are eagerly read; our Ideas run in the air and are more coatagloub than hoy slokenlug miasma. Tho daw ning o f a new m orning Is over the world, and the growing radiance of spiritual ligh t drives away the mlbta and fogs, and Inspires w ith new life and hope» Unitarians have been slow to appreciate Spiritualism. They are kindly and broad In thought, yet fsstldioos and tim id, especially toward whatever Is opt rvfiued and respectable. F or them to be low fastidious nud for us to be less crude m ight bo well. Their churches ore.w ell sprinkled w ith BpIrUnatlrts, w ho enjoy their fine social life and w ho nre apt to keep their' Spiritualism to the background to a way not creditable. Y et their viowa ore know o, they begin to ope ah out more, and all th is la a m odifying Influence. &o It Is In other churches. N ot long since w o were told o f an Episcopal lady, cultivated and excellent and o f h igh social position, who sold: O h,'! don't fool bitter against Spiritualism. I don t know m uch about it, bu t a good many o f my friends enjoy It greatly, and it can t be very bad." So truth w in s and wo h ave only to work on: WWnmt huts tad without rest * B u t w e wonder from the a rticle' by Mr. MerrUm. Ita opening statem ent* of the decay of old faiths, the opening for Spirit, naltsm and the reasons for lta grow th,need no comment and ore worth reading; especially Wa statem ent o f "a m aw of striking ' facte, o f which th e solentiite have notably tolled to d v e a n explanation." Then he speaks of *a.phuo«opunal difficulty of the gravest character;....the ab- eolutely trivial character o f the communication s....o n ly the Intelligences w hich ore feeble, or a t best, w oond and third rate.... eommunleate with ns." That m essages o f affectionate remem. branoe'end based on memory o f household idoldeuto, should heflrat given, Is no wonder but is natonii; and In most eases persons Investigating go no farther nnd of course get nothing beyond. Let a man only learn the Greek alphabet and his verdict m ight be that the language was a Jumble of odd soil ode; but let him persevere In his study and he would be entranced by the m ajesty of Ita noble periods. The highest things afe reached only by highest aim and persistent effort end finest care, and these spiritual gifts surely are loftly. 8o loog as the cultivated and faatldloua Unitarian,the learned scien tist and tho aocompllshed eoholar pass by on the other side, or pay a little hoed to spirit facts as the recreation of ah Idle hour; so long w ill the friends of plain men and women come to ns from "the other side" sod speak lusuoh sim ple pbrass as was their w ont on earth, and so comes the blessing to those w ith hearts open for It. w hile tho others, cumbered w ith much service to fine society and physical research and pleasant books, fall to get their share. L et a company o f Unitarian truth seek- era, select, refined and thoughtful, seek w isely and patiently for these things. Let such give as much rime and thought and fine method to them as they do to some things pertaining to their household of faith, and they would Had unseen Intelligences ready to m eet them halfw ay tmd to bring them lofty thought with fit eloquence. The bust and nobleat m essages from Uib life beyond come In private circles, where conditions are beat for highest thought,but of theso/thopubllo knows little. Take the spirltijat literature as It Is.aud If such men as Mr. Merrlam would study It they would find ample proof, In D avis and Tuttle, to Finney, Doten and othere, of communications far from "feeble or ' trivial.' Tho messages for Instance given by A, J. D avis as from V ictor WllBon In the Hplrlt-world, In the "The Philosophy of 'Spiritual Intercooree;" o r a poem by Lizzie Doten.given as from an unseen and Inspiring intelligence, on Tne D ivin e ideal," from which we quote as follows!

Barely In these I leas, uttered In each ma- jestto verse, and dt f jr high place,, thore Is no trivial feebleness. Wo ere told that' Spiritualism I* not a religion, it«tacts pertain to a spiritual science, of which Huxley and Y eom ans have yet to learn the olpbabett the thought* to which those facta give rise, lead to spiritual philosophy and natural rellglun.aud ore to sw eep aside, like cobwebs, the flimsy m eshes of agnostic and m aterialistic sophistry. Mr. Merrlam says that "the Intercourse w ith departed friends Is devoid of all noble and t/pltfung q u ality;'a pitiful assertion nnworthy su c h * man; contradicted by the aspirations of hum anity for ugea, and beat answered by Lizzie Doten, In a verse from her Guardian Angels:" Mover till our bovrio sro dost, T1U uurboule ebsll com«to trust, love btcomoe tin, r uplrntlon, die, - --use wits hope,to gnu, 11 «fnvafjarljina ha»«aod oc Bbill * v Oo tbkt v.eli n ofuterlmii hue, yfcjjjmptrif i o-aww u? *U, Oo thy bcoddlom lots we call; Bend tby meueegor ol light, Touusenl our toward otgbt.

Mr. Merrlam n criticism to good faith and spirit Is welcome, and may help us to rem ove som e Imperfections to our view s and methods. In turn wo frankly and to like good-faith, suggest some mistakes o f his. - "Tests or no Teats.

This army of occupation did not allow any wrathful or bloody spirit ; nobody wo* hurt, no boom of cannon or rattle of musketry rent the air. The sur- render was so compiste that flgbtlog was needless, find the strange thing was that neither conquerors of conquered wanted to fight, but seemed on the beat terms, exuberant even In friendship. Fur tw o days this Invading arm y w as massed in and around the Expuelllon building, and the captive citizens mingled w ith them aa though glnd of th e ir presence Everybody was Jubilant and expectant, the "captains of fifties and hundreds'* filed into the great building with their serried ranks in solid masses, the groat comm anders ranged the companies and divisions In due order, and w hoa the great army w as to place It was Indeed a eight to marvel at.

It is therefore In no sp irit o f dogm atic disputation or personal hostility, that I propose to eiarolne this paper on Medium- ship, I t seem s to me te n u te esparte character, Inadequate statem ent o f facta, uncertain reasoning, and Implied inferences ere calculated to do great ln jesttee to Dr. Mansfield and to many other mediums.

T b e w ise ere u nw illing to be wrong, and Bro. Coleman w ill not thin It m e hi a enemy because I see tbe subject o f M ed lam ship ln a less lurid light, and am led to view it In its nobler features and more inviting aspects.

In another brief epistle this im pecunious but hopef ul seeker after a sign thus renews his assurance of fidelity to truth and the Doctor: ' You, shall not ban anyth ing fry anrlicr; in yriu tu ticrt, I intend lo eturt in the lecture field." In still annuier totter he repeats his empty prem ises fa :emphatic Lortes as'fid- tows, end-up w ith an uarneirt supplication for an additional favor i f miff lie a iv» f <Miw f a r g m hers. l e u wilt fin d me a ll righ t.

Why, then, should Spiritualists so constantly violate this principle of common Justice In tbelr-hsnih Judgment of persona whose raedlumehlp they have never questioned. The tdroted dogm atist condemns, but It U the province of the philosopher to reason. When will the sublim e philosophy of Spiritualism assert Its power In the sphere of oar dally life! In our un- r -usojiitig haste and childish petulance we dlsregaid our noblest convictions and dishonor the humanity which suffers for our sake. In many instances the answers I rum spirits.are declared to be false, when it Is quite S ble that a more deliberate and rational ry would find them to be a -listautinf- ly true. Let us illustrate the subject by a citation of facts. In a free cuu versatios am ong friends the person speaking Is often Interrupted by the im pulsive haste of some olio or more of the circle. In such cases we readily perceive when ooe speaker yields the lluor to another, end we notice every remark that may chance to be interpolated by the members o f the company. The comm unicating spirit a t a circle Is often interrupted in a sim ilar manner, by some other spirit w hose at-ong desire to be beard w ithout d elsy prompts this interference. As a rule these changes and Interpolations aro-not observed by the persons present, forth*reason that their powers of perception are subject to mortal limit», tlous. It Is only when some member of the circle Is gifted with tbe vision o f the seer, or an unusual rrqsceptlbilhy of im preaslone from spiritual sources, that the real facta in tb e case ore made to appear. From the num erous examples In my own experience I w ill offer a single illustration: It w as to tba year soon after the me- dlum sblp o f Daniel D. Home began to at, tract public attention, that I devoted some weeks to an investigation o f the astonishing facts developed in his presence. Mr. Hom e accompanied cue to several pieces in N ew England and w e w ere together a t rail hours of tbe dsy and btgbt; To render my opportunities m ore r-rsplete, I Occupied tho sam e room and shared the sam e bed with film. I held long and most satisfactory conversations with the spirits while tbe medium gras to a sound sleep aud personally unconscious of anything that transpired. Th* Incident I am about to relate occurred a t Greenfield, Mass. A circle was formed In the morning at which the phenom ena were of a startling nature and greatly diversified. W hile one of our number was repeating the alphabet and recslv. tog a communication through the ordinary sounds, suddenly tbe rapplngs taeam e very loud and the signal was given for the alpha b e t Bo m e one remarked that there was no sense to the spirits calling for the alphabet w hile It w as being repeated. The same signal w as then given by a pow erful m ovement of tbe table, which elicited the observation that dire confusion had succeeded heaven s first law-" Perceiving the real state of thecase I assured tbe r that there was,-necessarily, n o ec, that another spirit hail com eaud Interrupted the former mestssgr, doubtless because he had something to say o f more Immediate importance. Tbie w as Instantly r e spoused to affirmatively by loud sounds to different pan s of the room, so d by the moat vigorous handling o t the table. The w riter then repeated the alphabet and re- calved the following telegram: You are w an leitat home: your child i> eery ric k ; g o a t w ax or you u fik b t left. Seizing my carpetosg I storied instantly and w ithout ceremony. 1 had but jdst reached the street when I beard the whistle of the approaching train the last for the day by which 1 could reach home. The depot was a: a distance o f about oaaelghtb p t a m ile. By running at m y utm ost speed 1 arrived a t tbe station w hen tub train w as m oving out. barely to tim e to get oi the hind end of the last car. On reaching home I found the statem ent o f tbe spirit literally verified Dy the facta. I w ill here offer a single hypothetical exam ple such ns Xbase often witneaeed in circles. A n investigator, w ho has little or no knowledge of tbe laws o f spiritual intercourse, takes a seat a t the medlnm s table and calls for som e spirit. A t length be obtains a response from som e one sad several questions are correctly answered. Then tb e relation Is disturbed by a com vernation with tbe medium, or from som e other cause the channel o f communication is tem porarily dosed. The attraction which bold the spirit, or easbled.him to remain, being thus Interrupted or broken he retires, either from necessity oreholce. When tm t, a t least to their rotation to tbe first sp irit whom b e on*antes to he present eu the w hile. I h iv e som etim es observed that several spirits have follow ed the first, each to turn answering one or m ore questions, often correctly a t to them selvse, but o f conine falsely to respect to the original spirit. The spirits of meo are hot omnlseiani, and It la to be observed UaAtbejf»often answer various-hftjnirtea precisely as we do, os ia/orm olim which they prerottwto to reitass; tbe nature of the case being such that a special tovmtlgattub Is not pre I N -.a r a o f ts a wbota œ s s d a r s g g h s g "' to WaU Street, c a f r e s m a t t o» o'clock to the morning and attcr a few m ente conversation leaves, ss 1 naturally infer, to go to bis ow n place or business. A t noon a mutual friend cornea to and Inquires if A B. is to tb s city, and I answer, Jr«, w ith tbe utmost conildmice that I am telltug the troth. A few m inutes later tins sam e friend receiving a telegram from A. B- forwarded from Philadelphia, proving conclusively that he was to that citv at trie tim e 1 stated he i s In N ew York Tbs trip from oue city to the other Is mad* in three hours, but when m y friend Called on m e In the morning f never suspected that he w as on Ire w ay to the traili. In- such a cose If I had the m isfortune to subm it the qaestion of m y.veracity to the un griimitus.and unm erciful Jurors, who sit to judgment on spirits and mediums, 1 m ight be branded as u common liar and pointed st by Che [removing,linger of the public Hut are we to Inferrim i there ar-... divrlng spirits" and "/alee teachers" in tire next sphere o f human existence? N o; we certainly cannot say that all the liars are In this world, sin ce the fact Is so- well thenticated thatsev-nrt have gons over other side. J)ut really If the other country is largely peopled by such folks, a s many persons are led to suppose, w» must acknowledge that th ey have graciously kept on; of our way. The w riter has neither been required to associate w ith this class, nor, consciously, subjected to any SaUunc iufrsiutlun. After thirty-fire years experim ental intercourse yrith spirits. I have not m et with a single Instance to which Xcould conscientiously affirm, t h a t a spirit had told m e a w ilful falsehood. T h is has been my experience which others wilt only cept for what It Is worth. For one I satisfied that if we snbstraci from the ah toyed falsehoods of spirit» the full sum of popolar misapprehensions and tbe numerous mistakes due to onr ow o Ignorance,»oral obliquiti»*, and a too precipitate judgment, w e m a i require a sharp detec liv e to enofile ns to discover the Euro. N ow soppose we credit the hypothetical assumption, that the uuswers from spirits are neither always nor generally satisfactory. If it be so. tbe fact contains no p t» stole evidence of fraud on the part of either spirits or mediums. Bach an admission would not dim inish tbe. public confidence to D t. Mansfield. Tho answers to a vei large proportion of the attera addressed! persons to this world are anything hut sa. isfactory, se a few examples would plainly show ; but we should never think of teeming Bro, Goiernan any 1m s on tills _ count. Let ns Illustrai* our view of ib«subject by a few examulea. A ntau, whose paper Is not to the parlance of the' finon- t a r - g ilt edged.'' w rites to a capitalist to lend him one thousand dollars and this favor Isrefused. H e then writes to the creditor and solicits the renews! of a note that js about to m ature; but th is request lx also denied and the note goes to protest. A n.am bitious young man write» to so heiress soliciting her hand in marriage, and is not at A l satisfied with tbe slgnifi canee of her negative answer. A wild adventurer to the domain of the affections pota a notice among the personali H erald. H e Invites bis fair a me m eet him to the pork at tw iligh t, where he encounters the father Instead, from w hose presence lie retires.w ith a lively sense that bis pursuer Is the only party likely to obtain satisfaction A thouiasd persons advertise for situations In ail kinds of business, but perhaps not arty ni them obtain answer» which are every way aatlsfsctorr. Are all who fail to satisfy our unreasonable demands to be regarded.as trauduisot compii» tors against the peace- ol society and the requlremsuts o f the mutai law? Oil th* contrary, there is bére no tenable ground for the im peachment of a single so»l Iteierrinx to bis corresoondenoe w ith J V. M.. Mr. Coleman says: "My sealed letter was returned to m e broken opaur and Mr. Mansfield testifies that It m u open when it came Into h ù posetaioa. The fact duns nut Juitify the suspicion that Mr. M. hod any agency whatever In breaking the seals. A t most tbe evidence is merely circum stantial, a n a to m y judgment, -it w ould 'b e contra bm ai m o ra to attem pt to convict any mv* of respectable reputation cm ansò uncertain evidence.

Here let os deal w ith tb e facts to the case.. The examples lllititratlv* of D i. Mansfield s m edium ship have been witnessed by thousands of the m ost intelligent observers from every part Of tho world. The Inter- spherical correspondence baa often been carried on In languages, ancient and modern. erf which the medium baa no knowledge. The conviction tiurt his nsod is moved and his mind Informed toy tire agency of spirits from another world rests an an in, destructible foundation of fasts, and la too deep to be shaken by any number of ad- verse satismêoss from persons of iimitod experience There is no objection whatever to the publication of the eocoliod f a il. U ta. or o t any facts w hich disappoint the expectations o f tbeinq uirer, provided they are not made the basts of unwarranted conclusion* aud un just atrimad version. Th* facts which follow to the im m ediate con- Deottou all occurred under the personal Inspection of the writer. Arms twenty-four years avo. having beard much of the peculiar medium ship of Dr. Mansfield, I addressed a letter to D r.

Som e time after, beteg to Button, i prepared -a letter addressed to the spirit of k young iady whom I-had known in m y yonth. The home of her childhood was to a distant city, and there, after a brief cueewaion o f seventeec summ ers, te* violeta and DU o f too valley btosaomed on an early grave.

W e give a large apace tbia week to arti- cles on medtomohlp, and oe the personal traits, the merita and demerita of m edium s, by 8. B. Brittan, o f Now York, and Dr, A. a Hayward, a noil-known magliette hosier o f Doetoo. Some woeka ago an article by W. E. Coleman, m ainly on tbe tnedlnmahlp o f J. Y. Mansfield, found plfloe in our col* n a n e. W hile it la not true to say o f Mr, Coloranti that he is "nothing If not critical," it la well-known that be te a clear and keen «ritto w ho pares o f all extraneous m atter p o m a fact, and so makes It stand out distinctly, ugly or beautiful a s-th e case may be. Bocae call him hypermrlttcal, but without givin g judgment aa to that w e notice that be often acta as w hat the doctor» call a counter Irritant," serving an excellent purpose to call out tho best that ran be Held on the other a ld i/ This present dia-.cuaslon turns a good deal on the methods and merita o f J. V. Màaafiéld.not from, any Bpeoial dlaiike to him bo ranch &a because be Is n prom inent and widely-known m ea t- urn, end eo serves a good purpose for examination and crltlclam. Surely It la fair to g iv e these differing view s, and wo m ay pu t it to the credit of Ur. Coleman that he has called ou t the others. I Those w riters, starting w ith Mr. Mansfletd. range ou t Into an Impersonal region of psychological in veetlgetlon,w here It Is w ellteffollow them, comparo their views and Judge for ourselves. We all agree on the g n a t vaino o f medi- (Unship, and a common want to for the beet and m ost reliable. M edlum ahip bee tw o uaes which m ay bo called esoteric and exoterio, aa a help to psychological study and research by the spiritual m ien tlst; and, oa a means of awakening, convincing and converting the ekeptlo and Inquirer. Measra. Brittan, Hayward and -Coleman, for Instance, could Join ns in a study of modlnma, of the facts they bring and of their physical and psychologic conditions, and pay little hood to tbslr habits or morato t none Indeed, save as they were helping or hindering faeton In our experiments. If the medium had-been intoxicated the day before, end w e bad caught him and/ kept bina from liquor, end theo he had lied to os all an hour previous: yet sia to-writing. givin g proof o f unseen personal Intelligence, had com e to us w hen bo and all others were aw ay from the clean slates, that fact would stand o u t aa proof o f eplrit- preaenco, irrespective o! the llqnor-drink- lug or the lie. Io auoh Investigation how- evef, bad habits or m orel obliquity w ould be disturbing elem ents, and w e should find that, although good m edlnm ihip m ay exist w ith them, yet the highest and beet to w here para life, finely balanced physical health and high morality go w ith the delicately receptive temperament tb attb é unseen personalities can Impress and control. B u t when w e come to the exoteric to e o f mediumshlp, to reach and Impress skeptics and honest Inquirer», that to a different m atter. V ile batata and w ant o f oommon honesty stand o p like a w all o f granite In their w ay, and It to o f amali use, w orse than neelcss often, to commend to them T h e tnedlnmahlp of the eot or the liar, aa w e ouraeivet can m ake it of little use, c ave for tom e curious experim ents. W e m ay, fa r convenience, divide medium s into, three The honest and splrltnal-mlnded, soli-. poised y e t receptive, consecrated to their work a s sacred and o f high v a in e tone In thought and U fa O f these there are many known to the pnbllo, or known and greatly prised In private life. -a, T hoeaof average conduct and character, dared and surprised by their own strange powers which they very Imperfectly understand: good In Intent, usually true yet not always stron g against temptation \ perplexed and weakened by the eonfllottog sw ay Of untoward influences from sitters In their circles end from luvlelule powers, and so eomeutaes falling Into deception end than 111 tod w ith sincere regret. a Fentons law In morals, selitoh In nlmn, having som e laodlimitatlo power but little Integrity and no devotedness to a good cause, and eo becom ing ahrewd and persistent tricksters. For the flrat class let us Join In comm endation and respectful appreciation. For the second olaas lot us have the charity wo should give to the errors of dally life In all ; yet. If need he aomotim*«, the exposure of their wrongs, joined w ith efforts to point out the bettor w ay and to keep them in strength of good purpose and good w ill. F or the third class exposure and warning and rebuke. Bnoh has been, and to, the aim and Idea of the BK Lioio-PittLoeoi'in- oal J o u r n a l, and this because i t to the beat and truest friendship to dod iu m s who w ish to do right, and the best service to mediumshlp. The perfecting and w ise unfolding and culture o f o n r 'o w n Interior powers, a know ledge of clairvoyance and m agnetism, the reaching to that solf-potsa by the medl- um w hloh w ill m ake him, or her, receptive of'good and repellant to evil Influence«, all this and m uch else opens In the wide range o f payehoiogleal research. / A word of comm ent on a few of Mr. Brittan» atatemente In his article on onr Bret page. Much else that suggests comm ent and commendation m oat bb passed by and le ft to the good sense o f our readers. Ho says o f mediums: "T hese sensitive natures need education and protection.'1 T ee, education- they and w e all greatly need on this m atter; protection, ftom abuse and injustice, as a help to right doing on their part, m edium s need; and their own righteous conduct Is due to us In return for the friendship wo surely should ebow them. T h e duty la m utual. L et them do their duty w hile w e fall not to do A gain he says: "It la little short of the moat flagrant In Juetloe to jntiot that snob people (passive medium«) are amenable to the ordinary rule» for tbe regulation of human conduct, They are no more responsible for losing their d u ral moorings, and drifting aw ay, than the powerless w aifs that float w ith the current of a deep and rapid river... Whenever the voluntary powers of the medium are held incom plete subordination by tho volition of the spirit, there enda the moral responsibility o f the mortal instrum ent... -The m edium may bp forced to do whatever the governing spirit may aim to accomplish." Ctasaa may occur In which passive and unconsolons m ediums are "forced'* to do whatever w ise or otherwise good or bad too governing spirit" may wish. A ll this does not rid- tho medium of responsibility. H a should not allow him self to be so cootrolled, for bod purposes. If he Is ae weak of will and unbalanced as to lose power of reslptance, wblob m ay poealbly occur oometlmee, but far lees often than is supposed, be-should bo pu t under w ise treatm ent and bis moral strength renewed, but never recommended as a reliable medium. A man In comm on life geta into bad oompany, Is led down, psychologized by the strong w ill of knaves in the body, and becomes a burglar or a murderer. HI» career, beginning In tooughtlesa weakness end ending in crime, snbjecte him to the penalty of t o e law, and tbe judge In toe oourt and society ontalde hold him responsible. If too medium ntlowa him self to be blindly swayed and need for falsehood or e vil folly by spirits of a low grade, he cannot escape responsibility. I t Ishla business to avoid these evil Influences, to break toe spell, and not m ake to e poor plea: I did not do It. 'Twaa too spirits through me," The moral responsibility o f too a o r ta l Instrument" m il«bold him to ao- count to resist he devil (or evil) and he wiu flee-" Spirits fa the body are m ighty powers w ho can rally boats ot good angeia to their h e lp -a s' too Testam ent tells us the Son o f Man" did and so rise o u t e r weakness Into strength, c u t of darkness. Into light, The poor creature floating like "a powerless w a if needs rousing up to stem toe Ode that drags him dow n; needs to bear to e voice of doty sounding out like a trnmpcbcall to an inspiring sense of J)mt "moral responsibility" from which he cannot escape, but whloh wilt be h is scourging N em esis or his guardian angel as h e electa by bis ow n tbougbt add act. M ost dangerous and pernicious Is to e Idea that m ediums are not responsible I t saps the foundation of all ethics and motnls plunges Spiritualism Into moral void and darkness and mental Imbecility as well. - E ven In esaes of unoo&sdous acts w e m ust look back and look w ithin. Tbe man In hie dream etabs the Innocent w ife by his sid e; that dream waa th e balefol shade o f too thought o f blood In hla degraded soul. The m edl am low to type and weak lrf* moral w ill,la used by beings of a lo w type-a far like cem ee to like, and, hla mean acta, even when nnoonadoua, are shadows of id s own meanness. D o.w e want wisdom, sincerity, fidelity and inspiring Ideals lrom toe Ufa beyond? W e roost let all vulgar'triok- stera and weakly vlelona persons alone, and give generous strength and support to toe mediums whose spiritual qoauhea w ill attract these higher touchings and give no n diytuer senes o f our moral responsibility. We do not say that Mr. B ritten Urns to lower the standard of thought or Ufe, Our aim la sim ply to 'give onr view s, as contri- button to an effort, w ith him, for ligh t on this Important subject. A s 8 com m ittee of m edical Jurisprudente, exam ining a caso of Insanity end crime, might Say that the responsibility o f toe criminal la not to ba Judged by the same standard as that o f a sano man guilty o f like offer.era, so it may be said that unconscious m edium s, or each aa are thoroughly psychologized, m ay be judged by a different standard from poteens In a norma) state, But, suppose toé medl- cal jurisprudente learn that the criminal w as Insane only when hé visited a special place, or ato certain food ; that he had Been no informed and told too that his Insanity, so caused, led him to crime; and that after such knowledge on hla part, he voluntarily visited the placo, or ate toe food, and again became Im ane, That would change toelr view and they w ould put the rasponalblmty on him. I f too medium finds him self led to wrong doing by any Invisible Influence his Heat d u ty Is to w rest him self from that fearful peril, and l( he makes no effort he Is responsible for losing" his moral- moorings." W e are not sitting In lodgm ent on Mr. Mamfleld or charging him w ith fraud, hut sim ply giving toe varied view s o f others to g e t ligh t on an Important qnes- tlon, not as affecting him only, bu t many others. This w e say decidedly; If Mr. Maosfleld, or any other medium, is led by m edium shlp to fraud and untruthfuteesa they are responsible, ore In a perilous downward path, and tbe sooner they leave It the better for their moral and mental healtb, and to afly this la the best service and friendship to these persona. Salden J. Finney, one of the beet medium s nnd grandest speakers, told us, years ago, how be awoke to consciousness one night sittin g by a table in Ohio, and a group o f friends seated w ith him looking on In wonder. Ho naked In amazement: "What does this m ean?" sod was told he had spoken eloquently for an hour. H e thought It over and resolved to go on so long as he waa not led to flo or eay any evil thing, and was not Injured, mentally or physically. H e w en t on, grew robust in body, vig- oroustu m ind, grand in his spiritual nature. H e learned to cnltlvate his own faculties snd yet be receptive of spiritual Influx, and so grew to be a normal speaker, Inspired and helped by high intelligences and m edlum lstlo In remarkable w ays. H e held dose to his Own moral responsibility, os all must, m edium s or net,. I f medlumahip 1«a loophole of escape 'from allegiance to right; If mediums are to subm it to each moral weakness and death. It la too perilous a price for them to pay, or for ue to ask o f them. B u t It need not bo so, and the higher we and they hold toe standard of accountability, the greater w ill be the blessing that w ill come to usai!. This view of this im portent m atter may serve also as tho b«at answer w o can give to the thoughtful questions of car friend Dr. Hayward. H e thinks M rs. Huntoon a m edium. W e never saw her, but m ust fake exceptions to Mr. Coleman's criticism of our editorial eorrespondeaca about her, W hen Intelligent persons toll-ns that they saw trate of power and Intelligence while Mrs, Huntoon w as held by a lady and In their eight, and tola In their own home, their word offsets Mr. Oo] ási»'e denial and m akes It of small m oment. T h at Mrs. Huntoon has weakened whet medium power sh e m ay have by f rands and tricks Is asserted by many good witnesses; as at presen t advised w e could not comm end ber to any one. Spiritualiste would do well to g iv e their countenance and support t o our many good and true mediums. W hile helped sad in- spited by tho facte of spirit-presence we m uet keep In mind the wonders and wide relations and great powers o f our own- Inner-life, and not think chat spirits ou t of these mortal forms do It all." F acte may be wings or clogs, sa w o use them. The great fact of spirit-power should he ft reminder and aid to the cultivation o f our ow n powers, and so the grandeur of human w isdom and will, the depth of Insight! the clairvoyant virion, nnd ourgllm psra through the gates ajar w ill Join to give the beauty o f holiness" to a divine life nn earth. From Mr. Britten's able book, "Stan and bis Halations we sbal] get m aob valuable thought and faetón totee groat-tópica. While watohf hi o f error w e w ill do w ell to think of toe toild m nssot foot, the strong array of proofs and teste of medinmahlp and epirit-preeeuce compared to which t h is margin o f doubt and dispute Is sm all. Back o f these logs and miste tower up toe mountains o f truth, tinged w ith a heaveoly vid J anee from tbe hoipes o f tho dear Immortals. Let ue work and w ait for "toe m iste to clear awav to a t to e great mountains may stand before our unclouded vision, and the golden ligh t greet onr w aiting eyes. James A, Barfield and Lauretta G «-Held The Beauty of Homan Affection a fit and significant testim onial. In t o e presence of a great trial, title and position, em inent os they may be, ate less than personal character, and eo w o put toe simple names of too President of the United States and hie w ife at the head of this article, Mr. Garfield still gains; hla trust la the Infinite Goodness, his quiet and cheerful courage, his strong patience, hie royal w ill, all help him " to poll through." Mean- w hile, from all over the land, Irrespective of rank or eeotlon or opinion, from all too wide earth, Indeed^como messages of sympathy, T his painful peril lies given ns som e Idea of the beauty of too fam ily life of tblb wedded pair. T h e W ashington correspondent of tb e New Fork Times, tous flcsorlbee Mrs, Garfield's arrival a t tbeelok room : Tho alm ost heart-broken w ife wea m et by her eon, Jam es A Garfield, Jr.. Mrs. Jam es end A ttorney General Mao Veogb. She placed hcr banda In thnseof Mrs. Jam es,,hto her ' Oh. every thing Is going on beautifully," oald Mrs, Jam es In reply, "only be m ust not be exoltod. Y ou m ust be very calm when you meet him." Mrs. Garfield bod nerved herself for tbe ordeal, and sh e answered sim ply, but w ith great flrmneaa: M1 can do i t T h e party then w en taad lv up the stairs, young Jam es A. Garlleld w ltb hla arm about hla mother'«waist, Arrived In the Library, every body bu t Mrs, Garfield paused, and the doctor» withdrew w ith bowed heads from too President s chamber. Mrs. Gar- fleli^paased qulokly In and tho door was O f that solemn m eeting bbtwebn husband add w ife no record will ever be given. Tho tw o wore alone together w ithout witnesses. A t the end of about fifteen m inutes th e door ow ned and. Mrs. Garfield came slow ly o u t There were HO TEARS IN TiElt EVES, and ebe walked w ith a firm step and took her scat In the library. Bhe wad very brave and bore up nobly under toe great blow which had fallen upon her. A s she le ft the rcom M rs. Jam es pmaed In. The President w as sm iling, and he beckoned w ith his fln- 8b ovor OHM VlOMl IO kuo UU1.UU U/ WUtW President always speaks of her. "Yea; I have m et her," said Mrs. Ju " And hoar does Bhe act; how did she bear It t" was the next eager question. She bore it like too true w ife of a true soldier," answered Mrs. James. "A b, tbe dear little woman I" exclaimed the President, " I would rather die than feel. Advancing steadily toward her father, as h e lav on w hat was supposed to be Me d eatbbed, she said : Ob, papa, I'm so glad to get took to yon, but Fm eo sorry to see you In thin way. Then she kissed him, and the President, putting ble arm around hnr neck,exclaimed ; "M bilie. you re if brave, good little girl. Well I m not going to talk with yon now," eald the stout hearted little girl, ae abe tenderly removed hla arm from her neck: Walt till you get well. A nd w ith these parting words abe kissed him again, and turned and walked from the room fallow ed by abeam lngam lle from the Presid en t A n attendant phy sician w hen asked It to e visits of the w ife did not excite and injure the husband, said ;, H y ao moane, they eeem to have THE HOST S00T1IÍN0 tnfljiskoe...j w : hands, anjl then ' Ld, and iibdd&rai contented". B ut be keeps bin eyes fixed upon her w ith a loving tenderness, and scarcely rem ove«them w hile abela w ith him, I never witnessed more noble conduct t hou I have seen In M rs. GfiTUeia daring th is sore trial. There seemfi to be a singularly suto- tle bond of sym pathetic union between tola husband and w ife. It la a lif e bound up to 6 U fa T h e one rallies and Improves apparently for the sake and under tbo rougnotlc Influence o f the other, i f Mro..Garfield w as absent1,1 totok there wouldba farlessohance than there la of the President's recovery. Should a fatal result ensue after all (which I believe w ill not be the ease), I should tremble1for M raj Garfield. Y et ana haa such remarkable qualities, that 1 have no d o a * under tbe heaviest affliction that could fail upon her, her bravo heart would enable ber to bear up If ahe though" * ' ere to subdue her grief deed, a model woman.

Tbe Spiritualist's doctrine has been, la now and will always be, simply: Tbe dead do Itve, they can and do communicate. Spiritualism does not want to add to cr abate one tittle of that creed It could not, If It would. In n o manner Is the change to thought so manifest to tbe.cnrtotlan church as to-perhaps, tbe accidental and occasional ur ersncea of Its clergy. Dr. Andrew F.

I have often found it necessary to vlndl. cate the character Of our mediums when It seemed to me they were subjected to unjust suspicion and aulmsdverslun. A quarter of a century has elapsed since clreumstan- cea constrained me to defend ltev. Thomas h. Harris, that most Inspired man among the early apostles of Spiritualism. Hah ad given to the world ids grand Improvisations «Ari Eplo of tbe Starry Heaven, "Tho Morning Band," null "The Golden Age, ex- tending altogether to some twenty thousand linee. The actual time employed in iholr delivery was less than one hundred and sixty hen tal These Keyelatlona from the Spirit-world are surprising Illustrations of the capacity of bur Isuguuga to reach tbe highest thought and tho greatest power ot poetic expression. The trans mundane authors uncover the evils of this world and especially ot the church, with a bold and unsparing hand. The essential spirit of these poems Is a pure and lofty Spiritual Rationalism, lo n g before and during the recitation of these remarkable spiritual creations, Ur. Harris was surrounded by the social inlluence of people who enter- talced enlightened and rational views on morals, theology and religion. Bo long ns he was In suoh society spirits of congenial views were drawn to him : he wan Inepher- ed in their emanations, and the Influence of rational minds on earth and in tbe heavens shaved his inspired thought and expression. Thus Ml bis poorvs and bis public dlb. courses ot that period were all cast in the matrix of tho rational mind, and I may add, that they are Illustrations of sopra-mortai eloquence and power. But all this was changed so suddenly as to greatly perplex and offend-tbe namer- ous friends of the medlunrt Hr. Harris was engaged to go to New Orleans to deliver Sunday lectures for period of some months before the Society of Spiritualists In that city. He accordingly entered upon his work and was extremely popular for a short time. Very Boon, however, there was a manifest change In the general drift of hla-teachings. Hla rationalism paled and disappeared like»he dissolving views. Tbe truth was the great medium through whom wise philosophers and noble orators Of datale lands had spoken, and Horn whose Inspired lips the more Illustrious b u d s of Em.land had hymned the sod giof The Golden Age,1* had found a homeda a f amily of Romanist*. He-soon after married an Intelligent lady wbo was a devotee of the Catholic church. The change which came over tbe spirit of bis dreams was naturai and inevitable, in such society the Jesuitical hosts of the*sj?lrlt-worm were drawn around him, and be, alas, was lost; not to Bplritnallsm in Its most comprehensive senee; but lout to alt tho gnat interests o f universal progress. He became, a little Inconsequential hlerarob among tho greater ones wins still uphold the spir- ltuftl despotism af the world. Owing to the obaogeof his preaching Mr. Harris was fiercely denounced by Spirita- Mists la the New Orleans papers end elsewhere, as a dishonest man and a traitor to the cause. It Is true that ho bad imbibed. so much of the spirit of tonatimi Loyola as to want a little eoclety of Jesus all to himself. This bo organized a t Armenia, N.

If for this reason we rudely charge tbs medium with a lock ol moral principle and Irtalsb that he 1b depraved at heart, that he Is vacillating aa tho wind, inconsistent with himself and eaprlelous to the lust possible degree, wo should only yield to a blind Impulse (the pesslona f ways blind) Iiioteud of Judging tho c wisdom.

We might as well commit a child under tbe law for felony because a giant grasped Us arm and used lie band to hurl a firebrand Into a magazine. Of course there are phaaee of medium- ship, In whlob consciousness and all the volantary faculties of tbe Individual are left to perform their normal functions. Hut there are also numerous cases In wbiah these are either partially or wholly Busied, the power over the medium being...fibtable and supreme, Bomo of these examples have been of such a nature as to edllot tbe deepest human sympathies In behalf of the sufferers, at the same time they have- furnished Important opportunities for solenllfle observations. As a practitioner for many years In the 'treatm ent of Dervoua diseases, and especially euoh os are peculiar to tbe female const Itutlon, [have nfbt with several eases which, while they wore painful to contemplate, were nevertheless full of Instruction. Of these I can not write at length and "will only make a passing reference to the examples wbloh fallow In this connection. Mrs. P waa a modest New England woman of most amiable disposition and blameless life. When I flint met her, tome 37 years ago, sko wae an exemplary member of the Presbyterian church. A t an early period olio be. came a Spiritualist and a medium. For many years her medium ship was only productive of pleasant results. A t length,however, her husband's business calling him here; tbs family moved to New York and lmd the misfortune to locate In a neighborhood where there were many disreputable women. Among the persons who visited tbe medium were several ot this description, who came as they expressed it to have tbe Sibyl tell their fortubee." A t length the visitors of this class became somewhat numerous, and of necessity spirits were attracted who were most tn sympathy with tho frail aisterbuod. By degrees the medium was completely environed by tbelr atmospheric emanations. This became painfully apparent In her changed de- S ortment and conversation. Though a won- erfol test medium,.whose - powers have seldom been equaled, her Influence for good was utterly destroyed. A t last she came not only to offer unclean suggestions to her visitors, but under tbe Impure inspiration and baneful control of the spirits of courtesans sbe was made to indulge lb tho grossest obscenity. Several years ago a lady of rare natural Intelligence and no littlecultore was brought to me by h er husband who desired a professional djsgooula of her case. Sbowassub- tendency in her strong desire to die. There was nothing lb bor domestic relations to suggest a cause for this unhappy state of mind. Her husband treated her with the utmost tenderness, an d wss In all respects a worthy example of devotion to' the Interests of hla tomtfy. Tbe patient was often reckless and occasionally violent. At such rimes, If not restrained, she would rush out of the house In her night, clothes w ith a determination to end her unhappy life by Jumping Into the ri ver. She waa once placed la a lunatic asylum,but was mercifully removed.when It was found that the restraints Imposed upon her aggravated, ber malady. The first, second and thlrdfvmlrfoeoupylng One hour each, were chiefly devoted to a careful observation and drittoni analysis of thepayóho-phjbloioglcal phenomena exhibited In the case of this lady. Haying satisfied myself I frankly told her husband that It was a case of Spiritual infestation. I bad discovered that some man, much older than herself, bad loved her; that this affection was not reciprocated, oo account of which he had lived and died a disappointed man; that the rullìi Kpataian" waa not onjy"skong in death, but that this domination often extended into the life beyond, that the force of.the old attraction bad brought him to her, as we all naturally Beek the places and the objects on which onr thought and affection are most concentrated,, There was no evidence that the spirit bad any malicious purpose, but he was so little Informed respecting the laws of psychological science and rim philosophy of spiritual intercourse, that he deranged tha cerebral action and tbe conditions of the nervous system.

We muet discover a deliberate purpose to deceive. The weakness which fans to reslat a strong current of spirit-influence, setting In any given direction, wi'l not warrant such impeachment. Much of the language of Mr. Coleman's article seems to be unnecessarily personal and unwisely disrespectful, when employed In reference to an amiable gentleman whose medlumshfp Is one of the best mtested foots In tho hletoryof Modern Spiritualism, I am not aware that Dr. Mansfield has an everlasting axo to grind In any sense that Booh language will not as well apply to any and every man who regularly goes to his own beelness. He may not be wanting In tbo acquieltlyencss which makes mon provident; but he would neither obtain money by Immoral moons, nor hoard it to gratify a miserly disposition. On tbe contrary, wo know of no man who is more ready to contribute of his limited means for the benefit of others, or for the promotion of any wor- thy objeot. To "rlug toe changes'» on tils Maoincd mercenary tendencies is unfurl, nor does 11 accord with the dlgoity of friendly- criticism and phllo-juphical discussion. I hove no desire to conceal the imperfections of medlumshlp; I am nut disposed to limit the freedom of rational Inquiry; I am not an apologist tor Urn people who practice the arte of deception; nor would 1 soften the public judgment ol those knaves aud trifiora who deliberately counterfeit the real facts of Spiritualism by tbo arte of tho juggler. No; such deliberate deception m the simulation ot tbe most snored realm «of all human-experience, fa a crime which colls for'merited retribution. I t Is objected that Mr. Mansfield is not accustomed to return the money forwarded to him with sealed totters when It Is ascertained th at toe answers to the same ore not satlafaotory. In the article before me this fact lo repeatedly referred to as a mattef of more than ordinary gravity. But tiffs la not so man Heat a violation of justice aud honores to make no return far tha time and services of the mon whom we may choose to employ In the pursuit of onr own Interest and pleasure. I l l s not my object to ptovoko unfriendly controversy with i the moot dispaoslonate.and friendly manor. I am for peace always; but not faith,.a t justice. 1 must faithfully respect the equul rights and privileges of all classes of men and women. l am never n.confedorate of tho dominant party, when its aggressive policy means war upon humanity. Mediums ore exposed to 'numerous hostile assaults from the outside world. They are regarded as objects of suspicion: tuoy ure defamed from pulpits, and by- many conceited scribblers for the papers, who are atm bo Ignorant aa to believe, th at where- ew r there te a rip, there is a royue." This treatment Is sufficient tb try tbe patience of the most exemplary saint. Wbo shall sb leld ear mediums from, such peroroution if Spiritualists will not defend them! T shows th at we con not look t o Market and Bow Street far tbelr vindication. Shall we offer no plea, when the Innocent Bofferi Shall we encourage the persecutors by silence I Not When the strong oppress the weak, we have no choice but to be tree to onr highest morel convictions. Accordingly, wo take onr stand- between the persecuted class and tbe brawny arms that would strike tbsm dawn. Now In toe name of justice why attempt to force upon mediums the observance of rules of conduct wbloh no sensible business man would entertain for a moment? W hat offense bave they committed that they most be lohded down with disabilities. The State makes them no lees amenable to law than other citizens, and Is not that enough? Only toe vilest despotism wonld visit them with extra-judicial penalties for imaginary offenses. I t is a recognized principle In au civilized society, th at toe Individual In ao- Bumlog the direction of his own affairs» septs the responsibility of the results, whether favorable or adverse to bla Interests.

The reader will not fall to perceive toe force and apprehend tbe proper adplioatlon of three Illustrations, In seeking reliable Information from the Spirit-world our sac- cess may mainly depend on ourselves and our moral nod material surroundings, Vatber toon on tho medium.- All be can be expected to do, is to give na hls time and supply ouch other condihona aa are within the compose of hla'powers. Beyond this too result will inevitably depend upon ourselves and toe Intelligences- we may attract to our presence by toe exercise of our mental powers, toe force of a morel gravitation, nod toe more spiritual affinities on which the higher developments of this Intercourse are made to depend. We ask no spec'nl privileges for mediums, but tae boldly emphasise their claims to trjtcal rights with other citizens. It lsn o less tbelr privilege lo mind their own business and to manage the same upon ordinary business principles without being subject tn reproach. I agree with Mr. Coleman th at we should 'Strive to rid ourselves of toe errors aud fancies enveloping our faith und philosophy;'* but how to do this is the pertinent question. Wo make no objection to the demolition of false gods. I f toe blown of the iconoclast should reach toe pedestal of hls own individuality, wo shall not innr- mqr. But we can never purify Spiritualism by ecoldlbg at the mediums, nor strengthen their power to resist evil by the most per- Blatant fault- lied log. This is not the method of the true Reformer. Medtiure are surely no woim than other people. If they were totally depraved, they would not be moral y accountable, and denunciation- would still be out of place. Bat we may do much to elevate the charooter of this class, and hence to purify toe channels of spiritual Intercourse, in another way. I7i«i> senrihw natures need education and protection. We want less suspicion of their motives, nod more confldence In toe essential nobility of human nature; leas of bitter aspersions, ami more patient Instruction; less asperity of feeling, and more of toft aweet milk of human kindness. Only as' we lift some lower friend can we hope to rise to ft higher moral altitude. Out of the unselfish love that supports toe weak: that kindly admonishes the wayward, and mercifully lifts up toe fallen ones, must come, at last, the sweet harmony which shall realize onr highest hopes of Henven. This will clear toe skies ubove ns, and make onr hearts and fives toe fertile fields of ongello husbandmen.

Liberal ProteilanUam endeavor» liy sucli imtiostorcb to deceive by false appearance, a* If there ex. filed an historical continuity w ith positive Cbrlillaolly. while la truth Ibi» continuity baa been forever destroyed by abandoning the belief in revelation and the authority of tho Bibite There no longer osisi» any good reason for such a minister to fon ad bla sermon» on Bible1 taxis, since bis reason Is the only and highest measure for the estlmnta of everything o florid him. If he wauls to trrut In the dogmatic opinions of others he Is entitled to do so, and It depends only on policy and conitderetlons of rhetoric, whether he choose» his toil for illualratlon from modern or classical ; profano òr theological ; Chinese or Buddhistic; Jewish or Christian authors. He only wants a suitable, concile expression o! the Idea which he intends to advocate In hla sermon, end not as authority. The only reason why these ministers refer only to author» In the How Testament, la because they Insinuate a nearer oonuoclloa with It than any other book, This Insinuation Is, however, umruo, os all Ihe principal dog. matte view» of the leaching af the New Testament are discarded by them. A ll the! la positive In this acrlpturnf eclecticism of these - ministers la limited to subordinalo matters, and la completely distorted by unhistorleel Interpretation of ihetrmcanlog. Negatively Ihoy uiropt from such Authors only that In whlab the dogmatlo principles are expressly or tacitly denied. For example, they point to Fan! for negation of tho hfosale lawi) to S t John far their complete separation from Judaism (and Indinotene» lo Ihe Lord s supper); to Jeans for tbhir negation of the metaphysical, fundamental Christian dog, maa, whlohcodlt^onl^ have bad their be^lnreligion deviating from Judaism could only he established alter hla death. Evidently such «negative eoleetlolsm cannot d a to the least positive Interest, as It serva» duly ee a means o f disintegrating and destroying erluoism. It nan only Bo of anv Interest for the timo: when the positive object to be destroyed t i l sis in historical vigor necessitating a coullncatloa of the, combat. The question now ariana a What right bava Liberal Protestami to o d i themselves Chrla, liens abstractly because their parents had them baptised and confirmed» In all past Urne there hat been one visible sign common to.all professors ol the Cbrlttlan religioni The W fn Christ." Jews and Mahons- medana believe la the Cod of Christ aa mtsnh aedo Christiana, and Maliommedans believe alto to Christ u a w ise and virtu one prophet who wee favored with the love of Cod, i f this were sufficient they s is better Christiana than ourselves. To make us Christians, Ihore- fore, we must accept Christ In» broader lé si*. But as wo have now seen, the Liberal Protestante do not bollavo tu Christ aa Luther, Thomas Aquinas, Bt, John, Fani, or Poter be- 1 laved In biro, aad-iettn lnly not as- Jeaua believed In himself; as CbrWt,lhe anaolmed,- Ihe Meaflab. H o n do they then believe In B t o f They bollavo In him ee the founder o f the CbrlHlan religion. But Jeans cannot be considered aa the eootelocs willing founder of a new religion and bean«tba only form In which Liberal Preteelants do believe In Christ Is thereby proved to he anhlstorlcal. '. T titlf»«even leavo tbie natouehed.we can not admit that tho formal quantica of tho founder of «religion, would suffice to obtain a membership by the «topic belief In those formal qualities. For all ncnchrixtlra* who bava heard about Christ as related la-tho Christian tradition, do believe In him ss ibo founder or the Christian, religion. It would be unresaontrntbfbleasi when thoy Wish to bo acknowledged aa Christians because thby pretend lo be so i all! maintain It that inch persons have not a clear undemanding of Uie Protestant principle, or they delude themielvea about the results of orluoal historical research, and I furthermore saaerl Ural at ihn present rapid rate of progress of aolenoe, this doluilon will become untenable by their consciousness. It can be plainly seen how unconfutable thoy are In their present position. This may explain why the negative reply of Blrauss, "Ate, wo still Christiana I" orooiodsnch a passionate attack irom tho very, ranks of Liberal Protestants. It Is tree that the argument or Straus» In Ibla p u l of Ills work, la very inperflclal, because It does not consider In any manner the position of Liberal Protestantism, and la satisfied with Ibo endeavor showing our es- trangcmenl from the orthodox conception of Christianity ; but the roiults of hla erlllclsm are Iho only Impregnable onea of hla ' confession, 1and thoso cxjiouat their value In Ihla bold dooluallon. The remarkable passional* feeling again«! Strauss, and Intolerance against liberal views In general mny be easily explained by the in, arawity of the position of Liberal Protestant». The leas Ibolr Christianity, and the more artt. Octal Ihoir relation tlioreto, with more eeger c u e have Ihoy lo watob Ihe narrow boundary which keeps them separated Irom the noehrla- tinn world. They Uiemselvca admit this. Christiana who have «till to dispose of rich and positive treasures, may bo to a certain extent, tolerant, but when somersaults u s ap. piled lo sustain the Illusion o f Christianity, then la toleranoo within tho domain of-chrls- lien views, towards radlcei Idea«, Impossible, It la well known that all religious parties E arn only tolerant and advocate tolerance, when ad, and oppressed by overruling raajorl- hut as soon as they bold the reins In own bands, Ihoro Is no more talk about liberality; on tho contrary as a ruin they be- come more Intolerant then Ihoir prndcoeaaoil. T ils historical phenomena would he repeated should Liberal Protestantism become the railing power, and 11 would surpass In lalnleranee 'all Its predecessors. U to-day Ill-humoredly tolerates the unchristian philosophy, In so far Ural it borrows from 11» armory weapon» to locreasa the work of critical destruction. Yet should Liberal Prolcataoliamsucceed ladle-» the orthodox from fla seal o f power, loaopby would never And amore bitter enemy. The Liberal Prolcstanllsm of Independent congregations" a generation ago took a far more straightforward course, nllhough ft was likewise mistaken at to II) Christianity. It was convinced that It could not remain in a national church, which reals on a positive Christian foundallon. B lfleul! would ll bo to decide whether those aoolelloa would have made good use of worldly power If tbere bad been a fair prospect lorthcm to attain supreme authority within Ibo national church.

True w e have tool even from the rem ote past o f India and European Middle Agee som e gleams of light, occult research, intuitive statem ent and wonderful Incident, yet little that la system atic or satisfactory.

A s w e look at this it opens o a t to som nam bulism,'clairvoyance, psychology, psyohometry and.spirit presence links In the golden chain ttiat h -ld e us to Immortality, In a few cases, lik e At- klnaon and Harriet M artlneun, m agnetic or iommerie etudles seem to lead to materialism and step there, In tb e great majority of eases they lift us out o f dogmatic theology. show u s the Buper-semsuone w orld far more vast and Wonderful than all the. Senses can grasp, demonstrate the existence and power o f mind beyond Aitd Independent of, all bodily organisation, and leave materialism and lead to the supremacy o f mind, the away o f the Interior and Invisible, M agnetism as a healing agent ta Open lug tbe w ay, for the sick seek relief Brat, and the touch that soothes and heals 1s welcomed and the health, it brings helps to drive all devils away. A lm ost seventy years ago M. Delease, an em inent F rench scientist, wrote a "Critical History of M agnetism, the result o f t'wen- ty-ntne years o f careful research tarried on w ith th e fidelity and care that m arked all the aeta o f one o f tbe brat o f m en, H is biographer tells us bow he show s that Its effects have been attested by thousands of Witnesses o f all grades " who have not been afraid to brave ridicule la obeying conscience and doing duty to h u m a n ity... w hile am ong Its adversaries n et a m an can- be f e t e d who baa examined the subject hi the only proper way, by experim enting for him self w ith the m is t scrupulous attention, and In exact accordance w ith the prescribed directions." V erily the ancestors o f the Y eom ans, the H ammonds, th e H uxleys and the Carpenters w ho Ignore the facta of spirit presence or see them la like shallow -wayabnst have lived In bta day. H e concludes after his thirty years' study "Magnetism presents phenomena which m ay enlighten us upon our physical organ!-. rations, and upon the faculties o f our.eoul I t tilth action in human'beings resembling attraction In reanimate m atter. T his action bath Its laws. Let physicians, physiolog ists and m etaphysicians u n ite to study them, and they w ill, soon make a seteooe whoso application will add much to the various brooches of knowledge which are destined to strengthen tbe tleaghat bind men together, and diminish the Ills to w hich they are exposed." A t a later date (I8W> ho wrote "Practical Instruction In Anim al Magnetism," a- work remarkably d e a r and sim ple In style yet w isely practical. A few extracts- give Ides of. Its utility. "When the magnetlzer nets upon the patient, they are said to be In communication (rapport). That ta to say, we mean by the word wmmunicomon, a peculiar and Induced condition, which causes the magne- tlzer to exert an Influence on the patient, there being between them a comm unication of the vital ptlnolplo, "The perfectness and benefit of this depends upon tho moral and physical condition of the persons. Experienced mugne- tlsera knew In themselves when this takes piece. Magnetism ut a distance is more eoothl ag, and som e nervous persons can bear no Other.... -The fingers ought to be a little separated, and slightly bent, so that their ends be directed toward the person m agnetised:...w here any one has a local pstn It ta natural to carry the m agnetic no- tlon to the suffering part It ta not by passing the hands over the arms that w e undertake to euro the solatia: or by the hands on tho stomach that we can ease a pain on tbe knee, The m agnetic fluid, w hen m otion la given It, draws along w ith it tho blood, the humors and the cause of the com p lain t If one hna a pain In the shoulder, and tbe magnettzor makes passes from the shoulder to the end of the fingers, the pain w ill descend w ith the hand: it stops som etim es at the elbow, or at the w rist, and goes off by th e hands, in which a slight perspiration ircolvodi before it la w holly dissipated In ta som etim es felt In tire low er p a h of bowels. I t acorns to chase aw ay and off with Itwhittever disturbs the equilibrium, and 11s action ceases w hen the equilibrium 1s restored. "The follow ing rule, w ith som e exceptions, earns to be established: "Accumulate and concentrate tho mag- js tlo fluid on the suffering paint: then draw off the pain toward the extrem ities. F or example : tor n pain lu tho shoulder, bald your hand an It same m inutes: then d o scend, and having quitted tbe ends of the Ungers, re-commence patiently the sam e process.",. These are but a few of the many directions and suggestions of this em inent and careful man. In the appendix of the trans. lation o f hta w ork by T, 0. Hartshorn Is n single curious fact one of many well authenticated: On a clairvoyant girl In this country a few years ago being asked by the operator: "Can you tell tho time?" answering. "N o; our clock does n ot gq," On look. Ing the clock had stopped fifteen m inutes tw o hours altonsh e had been In a m agnetic Bleep, and w ithout her normal knowledge o r th a to f the operator, Here w as vision Independent of any action o f m ind over mind. Leaving the great Frenchm an w e give a word from A. J. DaVin, the Intuitive view of the som e im portant subject, w hich-all Spiritualists should sorely understand and think of. In the Harbinger of Health, pp, 87, etc., Mr. Davis eaya: "There la a very common superstition among popular medical men o f theantede- luvlan school, that the phenomena of mug- nettam {arm sem ertamjaretheconcom ltnots o f hysterical states of the nervous system, It Is, however, very generally believed that the majority of diplomaed physicians are w ell supplied w ith ignorance concerning m any o f the vital processes or the physical organisation. B u t thereto, here and there a broad hearted and knowledge-loving phv- slolan w ho ta capable of putting a rational question w ith an h onest Incredulity. A loss o f vital action ta nothing but a loss of balance between inherent forces, which are positive and negative,or magnetic and electrical. Y e t w e do not hold that currents generated by the melaltlo or m ineral battery can ever be made to a c ta ; a substitute, because the principles of Houl.lLfearessmuoh more flee than atmospheric electricity as the latter 1s more delicate than the water ot our lakes. Therefore w e recommend the Judicious uncf'of hum an m agnetism In nearly all cases of disease especially the use of your ow n m agnetic energy on different parts of your ow n body. Y ea r le ft side can treat-year right sid e; year right side can magnetize your le ft side; youf vital centres can give the surfaces a thorough m agnetic sw eatin g; your hands w ill do the bidding of your brain; and your brain w ill act obedient to tbe commands of a w ell ordered judg- monk a s the em inent I t D e Frey segue said: "You m ust have an active w ill to do good, a firm faith In yonr power, and an active confidence In employing It." Magnetism ta a useful, a spiritualizing, and a sublim e agent for energy and health. It la th e all pervading tgm pathg w hich connects us w ith the absolute condition and sufferings o f our feilow men. Owing to the delicacy and BubUme uses of this power It ta susceptible of rem arkable, m ii nppllcatlona, muoh to the annoyance, psrhupe injury, of both operator and subject.*' These practical directions and excellent suggestions m ay help to awaken thought on on Important subject.

In him there w as to be found, to quote John Woolman: "No narrowness respecting soots and opinions, but he believed that sincere, upright hearted people in every society, who truly loved God ware accepted of him." From the com m encem entof tbe agitation he w as an unchanging abolitionist, a firm einporler of Garrison, and In Ills quiet, usefu l way did a great deal more to help tho cause practically tknn m any w hoare known by ih elr high-sounding declarations only H e kept the even tenor of bta w ay, kind, _jrene, gentle and harmless to the lost, alw ays forgetful or self and thoughtful of others, his lamp burned serenely, abed a cheering light around and w en t gently out.

"A Spirit'* Opinion of tbe Bible Revision." th e Olive B ranch comes m onthly, bearing Sta tldtagb of peace and hope. In the July Issue Is " ASpirit s Opinion of the Revision." from w hich the follow ing ta worthy of note, as one of tbb beat things said on this much discussed subject; " Y ou never hear of men attempting to readjust the m ovem ents of tbe planetary bodies, they never attem pt to change the law s of nature; tbe seasons continue to come and go in accordance w ith the docrees of the powers w hich set them ta m otion; m en study the law s of natareas they study other law s; they track the ouu la lie orbit, and they mark ou t th e revolutions of tho earth, and thsy are satisfied w ith w het they aw enabled to discover. N o ono bos ever cri ticised the law s o t attraction and repnl- eion; they are; so far as reason teaches and m athem atics can demonstrate, fixed facte. B u t the discoveries of satronomera are not regarded as infallible; they may bo Improved upon. B u t the word of God, given for the guidance o f men, w>teb has been d a dared infallible, m enbw fe proved to be very tumble, sad there ta but one con elm Ion to arrive at; that either God never dictated the w riting of the book, or If he did. It was before he had become posmosod of inlluite ta. teulgenca. " The men w ho hate done this work have set the seal of death upon the dogm as and creeds of the church: they have indirectly assisted ns In th e work we, as spirits, have undertaken to perform, which ta to rem ove the ilm o f mental death from the eyes o f I he living. There Is in old prophecy in existence, that tbe world would com e to an end in eighty-one. There have been various opinions expressed regarding the authentl- city of th is crude prediction, y e t w e see w here th is prophesy m ay be applied, and before the c losing of tbe year, it w ill be adm itted that there was a m eaning to this hom ely prediction. The beginning o f the end o f dogmatic theology, has made its appearance; the pnhiioation and lattiingor the first edition of the reviled work,"was the death knell to all creeds: still, like a strong man, the church may-wrtetle with the destroyer ot its pow ers;but rime w ill reveal the fa ct that the only sershlance o f life left, ta in the outer forms: the foundations are gone, the spires are tottering, and soon there w ill be beard the trumpet blast o f reason calling her to judgm ent "F or the pact thirty yeats the Spirit- world has kept repealing the necessity of m en axexetatag the potrara nature has efr doweddheni with, in matters of rfflgion; the church has as determinedly protested against the exerctad of teaaon.and demanded that strong unswerving faith wae all that was necessary.

A Good Teat In an Illinois Farm House. From an Intelligent Illinois woman, a Bplrituallst, as are her husband and mother, nil pleasantly at home on tbetr prairie farm, comoo a good statem ent of m ed luu shlp In the family. A lm ost thirty years ago a brother, on a farm near by, was so singularly affected that many supposed him Insane. H e spoke ta w hat seem ed to be strange.tongnes, acted nnllke himself, but did no bfirm and w as w isely cared for by Jita friends. One day, at her house, a R ussian peddler opened his pack In th is brother s presence for the sale o t hta goods. The brother addressed him In an unknown language, the peddler replied, greatly surprised, and for a half hear they carried on a rapid and earnest talk, until the man, In a rago, tossed hta wares Into hta pack and left. H e w en t to the neighbors and said th a t m an hod talked very strangely to him, in R ussian, bu t did not toll what be had said. / A nother brother w as a medium, ns was tbta lady, our inform ant, and she said.the tw o brothers often talked to French and German, neither of them know ing any lan- gosg e b u t their own, w hen in the normal state. t. They became eutlsflcd all tty s waa m edl- umshlp, tho brother regained hta usual condition by degrees, and.lived for years in strong health, and w ith occasional flashes of these powers. -Years after a strange lady, a m edium, sa t by hta bedside as he w as sick, told him of bta past experience, hta R ussian talks, end said that It w as the spirit or a French physician,a distant kinsm an, who thus Influenced him and bad guarded him a good deal from hta. youth. This lady hod no outward moans of learning these facts. A ll this conies from a person of high repute for good sense and Integrity. Loire Staff Camp M eeting A Plena Lie.

N iter Itiil when praallcablo, ask the up Dakar to sot the time, within «given limit, when ho or phe can attend,- Many times a speaker could at* tend *13*. *f. whan ho could not bo present at tho railroad and dopot nearest the place, and If far from depot, name tho distance, 8, If the appointment N made before sending for speaker. If you are anxious to have his or hot services, make the time as long aa possible, for a speaker Is not always ready to start on an hour s notice» 4* Telegrams are often delayed, sometime«twonty fenr hours ln sending, especially if aont on Bundsy. fi. I have received calls that did not reach mo act!! after tho last train had gone only a few hours before tho time appointed for funerals. Dispatches reaching Fredoota after B r. M* are not received until after 8 a. u. next day. Those ecu t Sunday are delivered Monday. From S a. U. to 8 p. Mn except Sunday», messagea are promptly delivered. By observing these points much confusion aod uncertainty can ho avoided. Oob point more: by asoounclng In the dispatch Ihe hour trains ar. rive at tho nearest station a sneaker can Judge the time and ohances of getting thoro in season. Tho Items which rotate to Frudonla telegraph office may uot apply else where, b«9 the main points herein given will apply in most cases alt ovor Ibo country to all epcakcre and funerals. Ltsuw 0.

The external form, ule, the outward cloth Inn In which rovolai g w S S c S i r S g f f l a w. i i s i i. a a f t. f f i s s fall, they nave had their interior peryepdegree which baa caused them to become mew outward formula, destitute of the power and destitute of the spirit. Bence* there has ever been the necessity for another illumination for [toother dawn for the uprising agate of the Spirit of Right, eousneu and Truth, lo dispel by its golden beams the darkness of the night of Ignorance, cad falslly, and churohal perversion. It m atters not whether wo turn to India, Egypt, Persia, Qreooe, China, or Great Britalt,; We Dud In all a divine accommodation to their opinion of truth,aufllctout to enlighten the mind, and cause it to expand and unfold Itself, and seek to become endued with the enlightening r a j 9 of the glorious enn of the splritual-world. The religious ceremonial becomes externally ritualistic. Religious life, so to speak, Is relegated to ex ternal position, and becomes solely or comparatively an objective rellglon, and just to th at extent, the church that has been the objective churoh, has «rumbled to decay. Instead of being the embodiment of true religious life, ft wo take popular theology as being the only embodied form of true religion, about minetenth* of the human family can have no knowledge of It, because they are totally Ignorant of Hie existence of such form or of such theology. You find Hurt In India they have legends of Krishna and hie mother! In Egypt they have legend* of Osiris and Isle, and you find a wonderful nlrol- Inrity exists In sutheae forinuliia with your Bible history! In one, the centre Is M a hometi In another, Krishna; In another, Buddha 1 In another, Confucius. But yon Dud In all the sacred writings of the ancients and of the present time, beautiful allegories, poetry, good codes of morals, and, mixed np with them, much Of that wjllch Is mythical In its character, nod, dead. George was the soul of the enter, prise, into which ho east a fortune which would have saved him from a life of toll tto less entailed. This commune was a gathering of great hearted Idealists, fall of life and enthusiasm. After studying a fe w notices of their life which the mini bora have placed on record, the render le Inclined to believe th at the Brook farmers looked on the whole affair os If a communal life was n prolonged picnic, with some philosophy to sublimate the earthllneas of plowing fields and milking cows. Brook Farm-was an Innocent community; every one did as- seemed right In his or hbr eye*,yet the breath of scandal ever touched George Hipley'a community. About the year 1310 was a time of pence, and there was a.kind of ferment heating up the 0*d world and the Hew. Tne Americans had got over their Drat bursts of patriotic ardor, and were discovering that life ought not to be wholly spent In pursuit of Individual interests.. With them socialistfortunately for the church of the present day, she has adopted that which 1b outward, Instead ot that which Is spiritual In Its tendency. Jesus said of the church In his day "Ye have made the word of none effect by your traditions, And, Indeed, the promulgator of Modem Spiritualism may alro say to the churches of this day, "Yè bavé made the word of God o f effect by your traditions," Thus ail ar outward embodiment o t some Interior truth for which It la necessary to lift the veil la order that mankind may perceive the underlying truth In Its dear brightness, and thus remove the clouds that now obscure the more perfect manifestation of thé son of divine inspiration. The m e, indeed, does not Cease, to shine when mankind experiences darkness or in winter, but when men experience darkness It le because the position of the earth, or that por tion of It upon which ho lives, has changed Ite relation to the aim. Precisely the same Is It with man's condition when be experiences spiritual darkness. It leoecause his position towards the Sun of Righteousness and truth has changed. BUB, the sun continues to shine in all its beauty, and i t la only for man to ascend Into that spiritual condition, from which eminence he may natch ft jfumpee of Its rays to réalité Its glory and Angels from the Interior; heavens have Illumined their torches from the flies nf Sod and are descending to all lannsi and where the heart s aspirations are to goodness and troth, there the Angels seek to kindle the real Dry. ~ In the Christian Church, there may prevail among the minds of the people that underlying principle of truth, which everywhere Is tree Inspiration. If you go to the poor Parse», whom yon designate such, you rcsentatlve of the enn. Well, then, say you,perhaps you Worship the sum f No; says he, we do not worship the sun the eon Is an external embodiment of Jlght nod heat. The light Is spiritual truth and beat Ia heavenly love. We only, worship Love and Wisdom. Troth and Soodncsa Where you find the truth worshiper, there you find one who worships the Father in spirit and In truth. Thus you find also that In all systems of religious thought, there are the devotees who have an Interior perception, by which they arc enabled to see. underl objective, the mere cutbnrste of the Interior. The external becomes, as It were, an outward expression or symbolical representation of interior devotion. This may he so In your land today, and to that exlent, perhaps, the outward ceremonial ts not objectionable, b at does not men today In hts religious observances rely more upon more outward ceremonial for his redemption and solvation, than to the operation of principles within the soul W hat dona It meltef whether Jesus, for Illustration, did or did not exist upon the oxteroal plane,did or did not die the Jgaomlnloua death upon theorosa The all im portant cuestion lo - Doee the principle, o f which he was the outward embodiment; live in you), A» a man asoonds into the spiritual state of life, and from the mount of tranr figured MLATO&A'TwSS «MTObt^'ofSe9^ realms of thought, Mid receive their trap!- ration more directly, and tiros be In a more religion ira relation-to love^and^birilfe of man from 18 u th o may see til them all, and -underlying.them M r T h fd «^ ^ ik tt «. tel with tala children because one calls lihn by a different name to another, But w henever there Is an aspiration to goodness, that good which Is In affinity to the aspiration, will pour itself from the Divine Spirit of the Universe to the Interior spirit of the on# who.yearns for its lundis wherever spirits yearn for truth there Is an adoration of the fa th e r in spirit and In truth.

Qu the death Of (leorge Itlpley, founder of.he "Brook Far m Community,'' the Ltmihn Standard discourses thus: To those wlinse memory extends back forty years the death of Georgs Ripley will recall the famous experiment with which his name will ever he connected. We refer to the Brook Farm Community. ' It was a socialistic attempt to make the world better." - A commune, that numbered among members Emerson, Thoresu, Bowth and Margaret Fuller, could scarcely fall to leave 1U mark.

Thu members chopped wood and talked of the Influito, peeled appi» and reoojiotrneted the universe; and so Hawthorne ew~ prem d "felubey were leading a righi and beavbb.btessed way of life Bi breakfast he chopped hay to r the cattle, brought w ort end replenished the llrespmd then went down and ate a huge mound of buckwheat cakes,, A fter breomtet George Ripley, himself,and another member armed w ith four proceed tools made a gallant a t tack on a heap of manure, The novelist jocularly iatim atte riha. _ ter this hard work and plain fore, that be felt the original Adam reviving within him. A life of labor tor the good of the community at first had Its cbsnns,but when lent, too good for the nineteenth century. Its founders were noble men and women, but they left out o t account that Important factor -human nature. They Indeed tried d e d _ the melancholy troth Is, "the natural man" docs not love his brother he eats him. Bence George Ripley and bis faithful followers went forth into a Stormy, Jeering world, poor, sorrowful, but unconvinced..

Being la New York In November, 1810, fa company with a most c toe mad friend, A. E. (sites, ve were both exceedingly gratified by the reception of a pressing Invitation from Judee Edmonds to pass the evening with him. We found him In his library as unassuming and gentle In his ways as a child, and delighted ns with bis genial frankness, benevolence and charity, which seemed extended alike to enemies and friends. IM was particularly argent In m aintaining th at Spiritualists should not organise, but that tbelr doctrines should permeate and exalt existing institutions,«it were infusing new life intothe did forms. This is a question having two wen defined sides, from both of which strong argn- ' lured, and < ~ paralysis, and re fe rn _ forts of IliB spirit friends. Ho»aid when his phyalelans despaired, he did n o t He knew th at he should live, for bis spiritfriends bad told him the exact time of bis death, and It bad not come. Hls fond of aneodotes In relation to Spiritualism was J aubtlble, Wealthy and infiuenttst citizens!, ns, he r e " were constantly... consult- I him on the subject. Onoe a celebrated bishop Of South Carolina, attended by on equally celebrated Doctor, visited him. and desired to converse with some advanced minds" in the Splrit-world. A circle was formed, and the eplrit of a little negro boy, a former slave of the Bishop, manifested himself, "and by no effort of «rare." said the Judge langhlngly, could we receive answers from any one else." A t smother fu se a Lieutenant-Governor and several Judges desired to have communicattons from Lord Bacon and Bwedenborg. I told them." said he, "that they m ost begin where I did and work their way op." As we parted with him at a late hour, he took both oar hands a t the door, and still talkies Stepped oat cm the steps and remained several minutes as though be could not - n a rt Bach was hls hospitality and genial warmth of heart. I t w u the lin t and last tim e we met, 'yet our interview bound our hearts in closest fraternal bonds. The Hon. J. W. Edmonds was a mao of peculiar character, firm la hie frleadehlpe. and equally firm l i hls opposition. He was 1 agiate ed anation, he began the study or law a t CooperStowu, will: George Morrell (afterward Chief Justice of Michigan), and subsequently a t Hudson with Morrell and Vaii-Bnren.

By hls exertions corporeal tonlebmedt was removed, and a series of rewards for good conduct were Instituted. He *lso adopted measure* for enubll charged criminals to gain an h o n est hood. From 10«to 1853 be occupied the positions of Oirenlt Judge, Judge of the jiupiem e Court, and Judge of the Court of Appeals In 1833 be retired from the bench on account of hls having declared a religions belief in Spiritualism. Three years previous to his public declaration In D a camber. 1830, he said he distinctly beard the voiceof bis wife with whom he had lived for.over thirty years and who bad died a month before, calling to him while he lay on the sofa. This canard him to investigate the subject of spiritual Intercourse with humanity, and soon he became a be- Ilever In tbe theory. During 1851tbe - alon for this doctrine, and In conseqn of the high position he held as a judge, brought upon him no small amount of criticism. Notwithstanding this he regularly attended si an res of "tabletipping and rapping, and traveled over the country to meet any one who bore tbe name of medium." Every thing In favor and against æ & j g t ë s s t t d varions positions in the Bute militia, rising to the rank or Colonel.

From this "Appeal we extract thè following passag«as they set forth In hls own wards tbe manner of hls conversion: I t was In January. 1831, that my attention was first called to the subject of 'Bpir- Itual Intercourse.' 1 was at the time withdrawn from general society; I was laboring under great depression of spirits. I r» re In reading cm nmn'a cita Lecce afterward. I nad in the coarse of my Ufe read end heard trom the pulpit so many contradictory and conflicting d octrina on the subject, th at I hardly knew-what to heitere. { could no ta ti would, believe whst TOIIN VVOKTH EDMONDS seeking!» Jtnowflf after death iweshcusfs again caret with those whem we had Invert here and nudar what Invited by a friend to wll ter knocking*.' 1 compiled, mote to oblige her and to while aw ay a tedious hoar. I th o u g h ts good deal on w hat I wlt-iires 1, and fd jte rm ln e a to Investigate the m attar and find ont what'it «ras. if it was a deception, or» delusion, I thought I could deall l witnessed, and from time to time compared them with each other, to detect inconsistencies and contradictions. 1 read all I could lay my hand on. on the subject, end sapeoially all ton.professed exoosnrrs of the humbug.' I went from place to place, seeing different mediums, meeting with different parties of persons, often with persona whom I had never seen before, arid sometimes where I was myself entirely noknown sometimes in the dark and sometime» in the tight often with Inveterate unbelievers, and more frequently with zealone believers- In fine,! availed myself of every opportunity that was afforded, thoroughly to sift the m atter to tbs bottom. 1 was all this time so unbeliever, and tried tbe patience of believers sorely by roy skepticism. my csstioueness, and my obdurate refusal to yield my belief. I saw around me eome who yielded a ready faith on one or two sittings only; others again, under the same circumstances, avowing a determined unbelief: and some who refused to witness it at ail, and yet wereoonflrmed unbelievers. I could not Imitate either of there parries, and refused to yield unless upon most irrefragable testimony. A t length the evidence came, and In such tome that no sane man could withhold his faith. "To detail what 1 witnessed Would far exceed the llmita of this communication, for my records of It for to o «four months alone, HU at least one hundred and thirty closely-written pages. I will,however, mention a few things, which will give a general Idea of th at which characterised interviews, now numbering setera! hundred. Meet of them have occurred in the presence of others besides myself. I have preserved thedr names in mv records, but do n et give them to the world, because 1 do not desire to snb- Ject them to the obloquy which teems,meet strangely, to be visited upon ail who look into the m atter with any other feeling than a resolute and obstinate incredulity, whatever the evidence. But these consider»- Usns grow out' of this tact: 1st, That Wave moots; uue,xnu, i n a u i u w «ueeuueiuued, and have not seen and heard what 1 think I have, my delusion hot been shared by many ae shrewd, a* intelligent, re honest, and as enlightened people as are to be found anywhere among os. My attention was first drawn to the lntereoarse by the rapping*, then tbe most common, but now the most Inconsiderable, mode of communing- Of conn* I was on the look out for deception, and at Oat relied upon my senses and the conelasuras which my reason might draw from their evidence. But I'was at a less to tell how the mediums coaid cause w hat 1 witnessed under these dreomstonees: The medtpma walking the length of a suite of parlors, forty or fifty teat, sad tbe tappings being distinctly heard five or six feet behind them, the whole distance, backward and forward several times; bring heard near the top of s mahogany door, above where the median: could reach, and as if struck hard with a fiat; being heard ootfee bottom of a ear when traveling, oo a railroad, and oa the floor and the table, when seated at room, som etim e several feet lustaqt from tbe medium, and where sbaerald h at teach sometimes on th e tebjs and Immediately after on toe floor, and then a t different pan* of toe table. In rapid succession, enabling us to fee: to«vibration i s writ es bear thesonnds: sometimes whsc the bands { r a table when r one touched It. "After depending a] these various phases o. invoked the eld of science, slstence of M accomplished electrician and bis machinery, and of eight or ten intelligent, educated, shrewd persons, examined the matter. We pursued onr inquiries many days, and established to our satisfaction. two things: first, th at toe sounds were not prod need by tbe agency of any person present or near us; and, second, th at they were not forthcoming at our will and pleas- "in toe meantime, another feature attracted my attention, and th at was 'phyeic*l manifestation*,' as they are termed. Tbna. I Lave known a pine table with four legs, lifted bodily up from the Boor, in toe center of»circle of six or eight persons, turned upside down trod laid upon its top a t oor feet, then lifted np over our heads, and put leaning again*! the back of the sots on which we srtk Xhave known tb it name tahle to be tilted up on two legs, its top at an angle with the floor of forty-five degrees, when it neither fell over of itself, nor could any person present put It track on ita four legs. I have seen omahogany table, having only a center leg, and with a tamp burning upon it, lifted from t:,e floor a t least a foot, In spite of the efforts of those glass pendente rang again.! have seen-toe same table tipped np with the lamp upon It. so far to st tbe lamp m ast have fallen off unless retained there by something else than Its own gravity, yet It fell not, moved not- 1 have known & dinner-bell token from a high shelf in s claret, rang over tbe heads of four or live persona In that closet, then a around the room over the heads of e or fifteen persons in the back parlor, and then home through tbe folding doom to tbe further end of the front parlor, and there dropped on toe floor. I have frequent iy known persons pulled»boot with a force whleb it was impossible for team to resist, and ones, when all my own strength was added In vain to to st of toe one thus affected, I have known a mahogany ebairtnrown on its side and moved swiftly back and forth on the floor, no one touching it. through a room where there were at least a dozen people sitting, yet no one woe tonched. and it was «repeatedly stopped within a few inches of-me. when it was coming with a violence which, if not arrested, must have broken my legs. Thu is not * tithe nay! not a hundredth port of what I have witnessed of toe same character, hot it is enough to ebow the general nature of what was before me." to hit reply to Bishop Hopkins be presents hi* views of the inleresmanisliin of spirits us resting on the rid frith : And now may we s e t ask, if man Is toe olden time could see and toof with -angels if, in former ages, the spirits of departed mortal could ajtpfcac to /wmirttmcv with tbose jw ilving-njay we not, t say, ask wherein has man's nature so changed that the same thing may sot happen to him now? Why I how often in the ceremonies of tbe Bishop s own chnreh does he coil upon bis people to sap, 'X believe in tbe commonlira of saints! which the article* of hi* religion say, may be proved by most certain warrant* of Holy Scripture;' and ret that communion which is holy when only spoken of, be woold fata have us believe is evil when actually practiced 1 "Briefly then, to tom up toe argument: Spiritualism prevents hypocrisy; it deters from crime; It reclaimstheiofidel; it proves the Immortality of toe'eeul-.rtt recognises our God. and man's responsibility to him; it enforoea to* great law of the Creator, by Inducements hitherto unknown to man; It heals tbe sick; It gives sight to toe blind; It cures the lame; It comforts the mourner; it enjoins upon all the utmost parity of life; it teaches that charity winch rather mourns over than rejcrises a t toe falling* of oar fellow mortals; and It reveals to na our own nature, sod what la the existence into which we are to pass when this life «hall h aw ended- Daring a trip to Centra: merle*, in 185S. he declared that by Spiritualism hls friends In the -circle to which he belonged knew dally of his movements.

Orlate there 1* a great revival ot Interest in prayer. N e t only la this shown In the way ot dental o t the efficacy of answers to prayer by a speolal providence granting personal petitions, oa In Tyndall s tamed preyer-gange discourse, but It Is equally, or even more apparent, In the statem ent of alleged facts and the p utting forth of argn- menta In favor o f prayer. A rgum ent, opto- Ion and Inference from facts vary, and out, o f all this will come good and truth. The m iracles ot healing In answer do Catholic «application'to the holy V irgin, com e from LourdesandK nocltiour newspapers abound In reports o f th e sick made w hole by some m arvellous power; and now som e of our clergy ore saying that the healthfol progress of President G wáélá Is largely helped by the striving Infprayer of good Christians all over the land. A ll this sh ow s not only that this Is a day of mental activity but ot spiritual life as w ell. The Chicago Times, not'especially a devotional but surely on enterprlalng Jouw no), Benda out its reporter to see leading preachers and others, In tbla city on this BUbJect. f lin t he m eets Babbl Htraoh, o f the Binal Synagogue, w ho saya: ' Prayer offered in b e h a lf o f tne wounded President, w e bold to be merely an expíesor in vert uae mwo or isju.o r u... they are som etim es colled. 1 am hot a believer In m iracles, and hold the socalled mlraclee described In the Baripturos to be sim ply legen ds and traditions associating the nam es o t national heroes or fam ous characters w.lth certain places.

The benefits o t prayer are show n Ih th e changed condition of the auppltoant e mind. Prayer seconds, not only to God, but through the spiritual world above us. It la naturally antagonistic and repulsive to evil lnltuencesi A whole nation In prayermlght he the meana of rooming nod directing good agencies Bud Influences Into one channel, and of a concentration of favorable causes for natural effects., The spirit Influences for good would be working on the minds surrounding tbe President, and upon bis ow n mind. I would not dispense w ith the four good physicians who are attending upon the President, neither would 1 dispense with prayer. Rev. E. P, Goodwin, of F irst Congregational church,declares faith la the curative effect and efficacy ot prayer as a Bible doctrine:' Would you be w illing that a test of the curative power o f prayer should be made on yourself,or one you loved? N o, that would be fanatical. God bos endowed us w ith reason, and he expects us to exercise common sense. It would not be common sense ter m e to discard doc torn, If I were to be taken sick. Doctors ore one of tbe m eans Gad haa provided. I should pray nt the sam e time, and 1 have faith in the efficacy of the combination. Prayer lias a tranquulzing effect on the m ind o f a elok person, and in that way promotes the chances of recovery, Tbe busy reporter next visited certain physicians. l>r. Byford declared "I have no faith In the curative power of prayer. I do not believe that prayer any effect on physical things. In all your professional career did you ever see or know, personally, or a cure having boen wrought by prayer? N o; I cannot say that I have. I w ill say. however, that 1 have known of a patient s condition being Improved by prayer. 1 have seen Instances where prayer Ima been offered In a slok room, whleh resulted In making the patient more cheerful and hopeful a fram e of mind; that Is in itself beneficihl. I am a Methodist. Dr. N. B. Delomater said: T do not know anything about It Pray-,r Is not on my llet of r e a r ' prescribe It as a medicine. Dr. 0. V ilas stated: It baa had a beneficial effect on the condition o f patients. W hen the patient him self joined with hla friends and prayed earnestly. a sort of exaltation of Spirit boo followed which greatly aided in effecting a cure..... shot or token dangerously sick, 1 should call In a Burgeon or physician before resorting to prayer. Dr. Wlckersham declared: T never prescribe prayer, and am not an expert in that sort ot treatm en t If I bad a patient w ith a broken leg, I should put BijUnta on I t The covers o f a good family Bible m ight answer for that purpose, pds- - v. Mechanical appliances are more re- le agents for the extraction of a bullet from a m ao s anatomy than prayer. BUD, prayer does no harm that I knew of. Dr. E. H. Horsey thus gave his view s: W hile net wishing to be quoted as talk- - * v m ust adm it that er hod a grtot Jent s oure. If tbe cold lead had penetrated bis heart, neither prayer nor saltpeter could have roved him. I w ill say this, however, that I have had cases In which 1 am positive that prayer w as a material aid to the recovery o f patient«. 1 have noticed this more espe- elally la my Catholic practice. On several oconaion» w hen, priests have administered the extrem e u nouon to patient«under my charge, they have got w ell. I attribute this to the fact that the giving of absolution for sin relieves tbe m ind of the patient from all uneasiness, and produces a state ot tranqnlllty that Is very favorable to recov. cry. This could- not have been brought about by any peraon excepting a priest* A legal gentleman, Em ery A. Stores, said : I n the ease o f the President J- think the efficacy w as delayed too long.

It Is liable to work wonders. I t Is llkq the m an who. tried sm oking for corns. Smoking and loose boots, he subsequently remarked, is the best thing I ever took for conto. 1 Gen. I.N. BtUesaald: "Christians have aboutcenred pretending > believe Id the theory o f direct answers so prayer. T hey have now figured It down to the point w here It Is shown th at th a answ er to prayer is a sort of a reflex influence; that the effect produced depends more apon prayer h a s est effect one w ay or the other, and th a t in m v case it would be»imply a w aste o f tim e, which l could employ to better advantage In w orking for th e thing petitioned for, w hich I w ould have to do, any way. Plainly enough these varied opinions Indicate that the old conception o f a special and m iraculous answer to personal petitions, by som e power above all law, lb fading from cum y m inds, and just as plainly It Is r evivin g and being Intensified among a d ata o f devotees. There ore m any too w ho d in g to the old faith because they coo nothing bettor, and such.are n i t satisfied w ith the bald m aterialism o f the prayer- gauge" theory.

Glimpses of the coming ideal ot prayer are seen In the statem ents w e give, especially In tb at of Rev. L. F. Mercer. Spiritualism w ill make* this conception more complete. Wo «hall lock on prayer, whether spoken or ellont, as tbe up lifting w ish and effort for strength and hope, for ligh t and tranquility, not moving any m ysterious power to act aside the divine and eternal law s,.but liftin g up the prayerful seeker Into harmony w ith those law s, Into unity w ith the great currents of ligh t and life that sw eep through all space and flow through all tim e, ami Into that unity w ith tho Infinite Life of which the poet se y a : "NouerrajU«! totbool Then, In w ays wo know little or, "the soul s sincere desire attracts to us unseen friends from the life beyond, and they help us, not miraculously, but naturally. Magnetic strength, tranquil peace and hope, clairvoyant glim pses, visions of beauty, and help from the Bpirlt-world, all come as answ ers to prayer, as helps to such as help them selves by reaching up. A ll this w ill not stand In the way of the use of outward help, of m edical aid, of labor for support. Spiritual strength aod common sense go hand in hand. Misrepresentation a s a F ine A rt.

That our readers may know w hat the Danner says *we give the mala points of Its cdltorlal.as follows: ' "Mr. G. B. Blebblns called at our office In a perfectly open way and informed ns that he had taken Mr, Bundy s place as editor of the J o u r n a l because 51r. Bundy found rest necessary jiu t as ho would have taken' ear place had w e needed rest, and bad he been Invited to do so. The alleged mtsstatemente of the Jo u r n a l on this m atter arespoken of as anoot which passes even the boundaries of our expectations of w hat that paper would descend to In the w ay e f w ilfu l m lsrepm ontntlon'and tho suppression of facts, etc,, and w e have Its m ention o f May 2-Bth that''g.b. Btebblns, the new editor of the U su o io -P n il o so r n - io al J o urna l was la tow n tho present week. He spoke i t the Free Religions Convention Friday tbe 27th, and tblb comm ent, on sum m ing up. W e can look at the m atter In no other ligh t than that he designedly perverted our m eaning In order to deceive the J o u r n a l readers aud please his employers. It further saysi "We w ill, however, pat It oh record, since the Jo urnal hoe, ever since hla decease,persistently claim ed that the late Epos Sargent was hand In glove w ith It, In Its efforts to destroy m ediums and besmirch the faithful worker«w ho would n ot follow where It led, that Mr. Sargent w as not a Bundylto in any sense ot the term : and a s proof of t h» they have, In hla w riting an Indignant protest, as print! Ia 4 h g, Banner, against our cowardly and eodrrlloua attack on T. R. Hazard. These are the main points, In the charmingly courteous style and Crater- nal spirit of the Banner, w hich close«its long article by saylngi "He «pedal service Is marked out by the unseen workers lu the higher sphere«, and Its space Is too valuable to be devoted to persona! explanations. which are only made Trem the glaring nature of the meretrioloua treatm ent" bestow ed op IU The final Bentcuoo states: Wo bave repeatedly advocated harmony Ih our ranks, for which m ore than ouoe have Mr. A J.

N it un til patience oeased to be a virtue did w e feel it our duty to u n m ask the Injustice of the course of the Re- l io iu P hilobopitioal J ournal.". These extracts need som a brief comm ent. It la editorial nsage and courtesy w hen a person connected w ith a newspaper calls at the office of another Journal to moke.manuod'-of the fact- F or Instance: a few mouths ago, IsOao Rich of the B anner of L ig h t made a pleasant call a t this office, and It w as menttohed In our n e x t Issue. The Banner did fiotjmention Hie call of Mr. Steb- blna until auch m ention w as necessary to servo Its purpose, bu t stated that he "was In the city, e tc, (sob B an ner May 28to),and flee weeks afterw ard, July 2nd, first revealed th e fa c to fa e a lljb y h!m,*tth e office. Btni more; looking In nt the D anner book store, Mr. Btebblns w as told that a sp eolal, Invitation and request had been le ft far him t o call at the editor s Yoom. To have said that he called by Invitation would have been the truth. In answer to a question, Mr. Etebblna cold that he had gone in to the J o u r n a l.office to g ir o Mr. B andy needed rest and travel to t a tim e, by taking his place-as ha would relieve Mr. Colby lu like dreum stencesjf naked to d o se; but he sold m ore la th is connection,efe, That Is, on th e sam e conditions and w ith th e sam e free- dom, and this sentence, w hleh the Banner does not give, w as added becauee Mr. Btebblns w as never told or Instructed w hat to a w or not to say In these colum ns, hu t was left to consult others here sis to fasts, etc.. In the paafcaod to a r t a«th e g n opened and os truth demanded. The Banner never mentioned the Bluets end transient absence a t - tho editor and proprietor of this J ournal until July 2d,, but on May 28th spoke o f the new editor." Many of Its readers' w ho are not readers o f the J ournal, w ould suppose, o f coarse, that l i t : Bundy had le ft hla place here as editor, net to retain. W hy did n et too Benner, on May astir, tell toe plain and sim ple truth tost the editor of tho R e lr}- JO PUlLOBOl'llIOAL JOURRAL, being Over- done and needing rest, had gone on a sea voyage of som e months duration, and that mennwhilo Mr. Btebblns had gone Into the editor s room to carry on the paper In oon- neotlon w ith other«hers, and had oalled at Its editorial roome lu Boston? Where is the wilful misrepresentation and suppression of faots? Who haa' designedly perverted m atters? Complaint Is m ade of our om ission of Its statem ent that Mr. Btebblns would speak In Boston at the F ree R eligious m eetings. T hat omu- slon was sim ply because toe matter bod no bearing on the m ain question at Issue. I t seem s to charge the authorship o f our cdl- torial of Juue 11 to-w h ich It criticises, to Mr, Stebbina. That w eek s Issue was In press the day after he reached here from the East,after six weeks absence. H e m ay, may not, have written it; that 1«Immaterial as the J ournal la reaponalble.' Aa to Mr. Epea Sargent w e only say, (as be has passed beyond these poor controversies), that for the last tw o years of his life he frequently contributed to our colum ns (his usage being not to moke his nam e known) and hla private comm endations and crltidsrae were ever welcom e and aro aacredly pieserved. The elegant e p ith e t: BtmdyUe used by the Bonner in thin connection, It om itted (Inadvertantly no doubt) to credit to Its real author, the conductor o f a dlsrodotable Journal In Philadelphia charaoterized os a ribald sheet by Mr. Henry Kiddle of N ew Y ork,'and named by thbt gentlem an T h e Modern Blunderbore.

If be has w ritten anything for to e D anner In the past tw o years the pu b lic do n et know It. If he boa commended their course to that tim e, they can give hla words. D ates are of some consequence, as we are dealing with what toe Bonner Is note. Manifestly these em inent m en w ould n ot have favored us had they disapproved of - geheral course and leading alm s and Ideas. Those aim«and Ideas w e hold aa beat for trutltknd justice and thus tar, the spiritual m ovem ent. A ny m istakes as to special facts are open to fair criticism in our column». "If the special course o t the D anner la marked out by tbe unseen workers, ' they som etim es get off toe track into to e m ire aud fog. Its editorial on "misrepresentation floe art Is abundant in epithet, pitifu l In Insinuation, rich In assertion, but paorlodoed In foot and proof. In almple troth and justice these plain statem ents are given and they m ake comm ent or epithet superfluous. If tbe Bonner geta over ita hallucination as to the real position and aim of tbe RELinid-PniLOsopniOAL Jo u r n a l It may do bettor; if n o t it may possibly do w orse, to its ow n harm.
