Winter just bidding good-bye and the weet spring time with U* opening opportunities coming to toon. There Is a steadily gathering concourse of humanity in front of and about (he large brick bouse No. ft o Curtis street, in this, the city of Denver, so close to the great uplift of snow-capped mountains whose lops are so often among the clouds, and which rise as the Great Divide. The doors that pen to the house from the gate in front are wide, so that perapns can enter. On theside hangs a scarf of black and on the other side earf of white crape. Somebody ha«assort o to the plains that are beyond the Great Olvld "gone over the Range into the new fields. We cuter as a friend and meet those whose voices are low, whose heads are lower and whose eyes are wet as their cheeks are stain- *d with tears that mark fho agony of hearts truck with great sorrow. We step Into the parlor, open to those who will enter. There tends on Its btnek pedestal a black casket overed with flowers, and therein is the life- tefl«body of a man. The body b at rest. The man himself has passed on. We look into the askrt and there, as though taking his rest afur a painiul effort. Is all that Is mortal of ode wo knew as a brave, liberal, generous, progressive man a friend. The house In which his spirit ror rattier he /ilraself had Uved for more than a third of a century, had goq'* to rack hud tumble, and, the good man who, from his birth had occupied It had gone. The temple was there, tisoletu); Ita ffusfdon ended, and as»q fleet the works of men back ' l<> earth again, ancient and holy things fade as a dream** was tho temple returning a* Uu* oft rouysed pathway of. nature to t agultt at the proper lime, with other life In keeping, till U. too,»hail be relieved.

Thereon, like a beautiful child of iheolhfjrht light, aa the black amt while caskets so ctose together held the silent forma of father and eon whose lives hail gone out so near together. Ko near the junior on earth was hardly the senior In hcavuii. Years ogoue, with others who were children, we often played at hldc-aud-seek. The several would blind nud tbe one would hide, Then came the seeking. About tin* grounds, in the wood-shed, cellar mid outbuildings, while the one «ought would tie iip-htnfrs, out ou a roof, or up among the limb.«of sumo good friiit-.benring tree -higher up than we generally looked for, 8o, too, have gone the loved husband and father, the affectionate brother, the patient, thoughtful intin and his youngest born. The last look given to the deserted templed, and then a long funeral cortege to the river side. Men, women and children stood with lear-wei eyes, while the companions of a busy, useful life lowered tho casket«that were filled to their rest In the bosom of our great mother earth. A man of good life and full of sympathy for those who mourn, spoke words fit for the occasion, end those who mourned looked into the graves to see. side by side, the caskets that held mortality at rent. As limy looked, the tears, the sobs, the plaints of anguish told of the depth and sacrwlnem of sorrow. But why look lull the grave. The ones who are mourned an not there.

The Christians with all their numerous denominations prof«««to take the Bible as a rule of faith, yet strange to say they all bend the rule to suit their respective nud conflicting creeds. Now, sir, my object in thua obtruding ruyself upon your attention, Is to compare the churches or today with the bonk from which they claim as n rule to fabricate their fundamental point«of doctrine.

From the Catholic Church down to the last dissent, they alt claim to b? founded upon divlno revelation and even apostolical sucoe-hlon; but lotus bring this claim to the rule and see if it will stand thé test. He whom they claim for their Lord and Master said in his last commission to his npobtlcs; Go ye Into all the world and preach tlio gospel to every creature.

(Mark, chap. 10; v. 1ft, 10. 1?, Vi.) Now If they have apostolical succession, wluieesire the signs that should follow them? They sky the signs wore only Intended to conhmr Christianity when first started, and that they hud to cease with tho apostolical Age. But the mio says emphatically that the signs thall follow them that believe, hence we c.in very properly conio to tho conclusion that the signs ceased when thoy ceased to believe. The apostle Paul speaking of these signs in the 12th chapter of the Klr»t Epistle to Ihe Corinthians, oavs: Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, 1 would not have you ignorant. The writer In tbe above chapter describes the spiritual gifts, and also gives tho source they come from. But the manifestation of the spirit Is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the spirit the word of wisdom; to unothcr the word of knowledge by the «Amo «plrlt; to another faith by the same spirit; to another the gift of healing by the same spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongue«; to another the interpretation of tougucs. Now, bow many of tho modern churches have those spiritual gifts? Not one! Thoy say thoy are not necessary, and thus rest contented with the form or godliness, but denying the power thereof." The present condition of the sectarian world 1«graphically described by one of Hie ancient prophet«;,rtinw ealth tbe Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bile with their teeth and cry peace, and he that pnlteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him; therefore bight shall be unto you that ye shall not have a vision, and it shall bo dark unto you that ye Abati not divine, and the suu shall go down over the prophets aud the day «hall be dark over them. Then shall the seers be ashamed and the divinerà coufounded. a*, they shall all cover their lips, for there no answer of God." (Micah, chap. 3; v. ft. The above la a perfect picture of the Christian churches from the Church of Homo Mown to the lost dissent, and where are they? Their own rule «hall answer the question by ths mouth of the jutostto Paul: Teased to and fro and carrledfhbout with every wind of doctrine by Clio «(eight of men and cunning craftiness whereby they He in wait to deceive. (Ephesians, chap. I; v. 14,) Thus millions of the human family are deceived and led astray and fall into sectarian ditches because the blind are loading the blind. They talk about tbe "unity of the faith," and at tho same Limo they are marching In the opposite direction and in the midst of this confusion new sect«are yearly springing Into existence, and each or these claiming to have their authority from tho Bible. Now granting this book to havecome through divine Inspiration, It copul only be a guide to those who received It n'hd the nge It was given in; but when wo take Into consideration that the Bible has Wen handed down from generation to generation, through some of the mostbarliarouaand tyrannical wyxtoms that ever disgraced humanity, it Is almo«t a miracle that there Is any of It loft to be claimed at all. The Bible itself makes mention of fifteen different books which are not to be foundin It. We rend in the Bible of "The Book of the Wars of tbe Lord." buht has dittappe»red. It refers to The Rook of Gad, the Seer. but the hook is lost. Ths Bible also refers to The Book of Nathan, the Prophet," «ud this also is loet. Good, honest old Jude, whose plain talk has caused his Kptotlo to ho whittled down to one «mall chapter quoted from "Enoch, the seventh from Adam;" but wo have no book of Enoch In the Bible. The apostle Paul ill Ills First Epistle to the ' rinlhlans, refers to a former Epistle which hi wrote unto them, but we do not find Jt in the New Testament, yet these creed makers have tbe audacity to sdy that the canon of tho books of* Holy Scrip- Info are full, and that they need no morn revelation for their guide. For upwards of eighteen hundred years they have Wen feel- lug their way In the dark with noothcr light for their guide than the oral traditions of has been dragged through river«of human gore. Men aud women have been dragged from home«and dungeon«, tied to «takes and burned to ashes with flaming fagots. The rack, the thumbscrew and o her diabolical Instrument* of torture have been resorted to. to enforce Wile! la the tradition«of what the? call the Holy Father* These Holy Fathers" formerly held in their bands the controlling power In the government]«of all Christendom and their followers at the present day only lack political power to u«e the same mean«to enforce their creeds upon the people. Now, air. In concluding these remarks, you will allow me to say that what ta called orthodox In religion ha«been the greatest enemy to progrm in all ages of the world. Na matter how far they disagree amongst themselves, no sooner than a progressive movement Is set on foot than orthodoxy begin«to scrape all its scattered forces together for the attack not of the fnnda- mental principles of the movement, but the moral cha actor of those who promote it..the Jewish Pharisee* and the Soddncees differed materially in their religious opinion«, yet they were one lo raying that John the Baptist nod * devil«and that the- Nameast out devils prince of the.... MV ll>lim:w%io Phnrlseas of the present day never stop* to Investigate the truth of modern Spiritualism, but like their ancient brethren, they cry,"- Demon»I The while buslnera Is froi the devil." There is no «iicli thing as progression I orthodoxy. As it wa«in the bciriiinlng h it»hall bo evermore, world without end," I the stereotype old song of tho Church. Tim progressive light of Spiritualism h no light nt all to tho Church. The Church has tlm law and the prophet«for n guide, but. alas! what little there 1* left of them, utilauipered with, only goes to prove the apostasy of the Church. But 1 should like to knowwvhichor the many existing churches, 1«The Church, limy nil claim the definite article, and use the Bible for a rule of faith, but unfortunately each one ha- Ha own interpretation of the book, and thus the rule Is twisted out of nil shape, to suit their numerous creed«. The true light is a direct and immediate comm uni cat (on with Hie Hplrit-world, but the churches have not only lost all sight of this, hut they also condemn modern Spiritual ism because they profess to have it. Without «topping -to Investigate, thoy come to tho conclusion that all spiritual mediums are iteslltuie of character nnd Instruments In the hand* of evil spirit«to deceive the world. Surely this Is an old argument; the orthodox have always used It against the truth, but Spiritualism will go on and conquer all the same. The loved ones from beyond the vail are bringing a tueaitage of love to all who are willing to receive It. mid the harbingers of truth are abroad In the world proclaiming thh glud tidings of great joy, and throwing tho beams of heavenly light upon nil corrupt systems aud tiiuklug manifest their fallacy.

Easter Thlflight*. The Easter Day has come and gone, and the preachers of various sects have done what they could In the way of explaining, "resurrection. We have watched the papers carefully to see what now thoughts the season would evoke; what now discovery of evidence there Is of man's Immortality, but find only the same platitudes repeatedr.man Is immortal, because Jesus said so, as If front earliest âgé», the truth had not been known, though never definitely and clearly till modern Spiritualism arose to answer the question of the ages. If a man die, shall ho live again? and that othert asked some centuries later, aid as yet unanswered. by any revelation the Church has received, "How are the dead raised, aud with wliat body do they come? We*note attempts to answer these, The Rev. Dr. Holland, of Trinity Episcopal Church, preached, as reported in Chicago Tribune, March IlHli, a sermon on the text. "Because I live, yo shall live also." Ho said: "Materialism says that tnau is immortal, but his Immortality is that of matter, which, though changing Its form, can never perish. Hut such Immortality»atiNiles no hope. It is a fraudulent usifof thcm^rd. It is a series of deaths, but no continuous life that feels.its continuity. Fqptheism says that man ia immortal, but his immortality Is* that of Hod, in whose Spirit his spirit I* absdrbed. But this is God» immortality, not man's. Man cau be immortal as man. aud each individual only as himself, Absorption that leaves not distinct personality is as much death as were annihilation. The theory contradicts our consciousness of Identity aud our moral con vieil (Jbs..Positivism, too, promises immortality. Individuals die, but the race Uvea on.

This constitutes a reasonable hope, but he wishes ipora some fact that will pledge Ha fulfillment. H u death ever proven itself to be life? Has history any comfort for hbpei* Our religion answers yes. There is an empty sepulchre, opened from within. He Is dive forevermore. 'Because 1 live, ye shall live also," We have better evidence than an "open sepulchre." To us come those, who were called dead, and testify dallp that they live. Not on one resurrection. but thousands of them, do our declarations, our sure knowledge of immortality, real. We always have thought our theologians in error In their exegesis of the text-used as a bask bv the Reverend Doctor. Jesus was conscious of hla Immortality. HU iotuitions were confirmed by what he «ate clairvoyantly of angel life, hut arguing from hi»conviction-of his own immortality, and perceiving tike conditions In those around him, he said: "Because I live, ye shall live also;" just as each one of tiq may say to-day, "I know I am immortal; I believe you are." This, we think, was what Jeans meant not that their llfo depended upon his, hpt that they being under similar conditions, were as Immortal as he felt himself to be. For illustration of the antiquated, well- nigh obsolete Idea of the resurrection of the material body, we take a sketch we find In the New York Herald of a sermon preached In New York by Rev. Father Halpcne, S. on Faster Sunday: "He contrasted the materialistic opinions of the day which sneer at religion«doctrine and which ridicule the idea of the body's being revivified in another stale of existence. And yet, said the preacher, there Is noth lug In science to controvert any religious dogma of the Church. The idea that the ashes of the world, the atom* of the lardy which have ill the lltpscof years formed other organisms could he brought together by Almighty Cower and reinvested with their old functions, offords food for laughter. Why, science teaches that this very thing Is going on day after «lay. No man Is composed at one minute of the same matter he is the minute before. It Is ndinilud that yon ami I nre now composed of entirely different atoms from those which formed us seven years ago. Yet do either of ns question uur Identity or believe the body we now posse** h net our own? Rut skepticism sneers at the Almighty's doing wliat religion leaches, because forsooth It cannot understand how the prodigy is to be effected. How much is there In the world It cannot understand? lias It learned all the liner processes of life and vegetation? Hus It solved the mysteries of the growing forests? linn It discovered the system on which the butterfly passes through its changes and from the chrysalis soars away a winged bln&tom? It admits them all. Yet because It cannot umlerstaild how It can be done,.it denies the power of an Infinite Hod to rehabilitate with his breath the dead of generations and gather into the parts they once filled ashes of a de- par toil world, It has been calculated that If the bodies of all the dead could be collected, they would cover the face of the whole earth thirty miles deep. The same matter has entered Into thousands of bodies. It is not possible, even for Almighty (lower, without a new creation, to reproduce all the bodies that have been ou the earth. A man may pay a thousand dollars, which shall enter into hundreds of transactions, involving many thousands of dollars, but it Is only a thousand dot tars lifter all, and would be Insufficient to simultaneously act Its part ngain in nil the transactions in which it figured. Thnt one or a thousand or a thousand millions could be raised by divine power and have the same bodies they had on earth, is conceivable but Improbable, because useless: but that all who ever have lived on this earth could be raised again, 1«absolutely impossible there Is not material enough on the eorurhv do it with. Ttew bodies can be made, perhaps, but they would be new, not/the bodb those who diej. Paul nob wrote "Thou fool, that wjhch b _ that which shall be." "INa-Sown a natural body, It Is raised a spiritual body. Dear as the thought of Immortality Is to the churches, it Is still dearer to us, for we know what ft means. Bearing with us always the spiritual body, Paul wrote of knowing that our life here Is determining the quality of that body, which shall serve to express the spirit action through eternity; the idea of resurrectiou, inevitable, immediate resurrection, Is not the promise of a far off glory to which none have yet attained, hut the fact of to-day. It is not what may he, hut what surely shall be, what we know certainty Is. It realiton demonstrations of hosts of real occurrences, We note, positively know, beyond possibility of doubt, there is life beyond the grave; "the dead are raised, as Jesus said, not "shall be. Knowing this, we need no "open sepulchre, turn away ffom the gross muter iafom of the Jesuit father, and exult with a "Jqy unspeakable and full of glory" that "if ourrarthly house of this tabernacle be dissolved, we have a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." Spiritualism is Christ!auity purified aud glorified. A Strange Funeral, The Moon Magasine. We remember reading a Swedenborglan Hsxtk some years ago, on the Relation of Insanity to Inspiration, and reading a journal published In Brooklyn, N\ Y,, a materializa* t Ion-pay charnel rlcal - phy aka t - m au I fest a lion paper,(of.which as yet we have scon 'only one number, sent us by one of those "good-natured friends,"everyone has, because Itcontaln- ed dn attack on us and our friends*, we Unni gilt wp dolerteli evidenti} elthey Of in»unity nr ln«id ml lo il In Us punen we1were which luit were toierably c<erlain Hint It It were Ispiratimi, we didn't want to be tini» inspire«!. Some of tlieine days, when we have ilutili a go De to «1o,ntidcan't sirep.we may hold up for the admirhtioii of our read- It appears from an exchange that the burial lately of K. G. Stebblns, who was for twenty years editor of the Cuba (X. Y.) Paid* of. has caused a sensation in Western New York.,Stebblns was what might be pronounced an Ingereollite.",. For years he has been dying of consumption, and for months past has brooded over his approaching dissolution. He was much impressed with the refusal of Chhrles It. Thorne, Jr., the deceased actor, to have any religious services held over his remains, and prior to his death exacted from his family a promise that no minister of any denomination should be allowed to hold religions serviced over his body. He was a member of Lodge No. 553, Knight* of Honor, gud asked that the obsequies should - be conducted by the lodge. He desired the Knights, when following the remains to the grave, to sing ^Marching Through Georgia, repeating the song as the earth fell upon the coffin. On leaving the cemetery they were to slng*'good- by, My Lover, Good-by." Stebblns /icd a few days ago, the funeral, taking place at Go wands, N.Y., Friday, March. 11th. Twenty-eight Knights in full regatta attended the funeral; they sang the song which the deceased bad requested both in going and coming, and created quite a sensation In the quiet town, the citizens of which dig not understand how such songs could be tolerated at a funeral, The mourners, however, did not seem to mind the strangeness of the burlal The scene at the grave when the earth rattled on the box and the Knlghta'started up the old war song was quite impressive. As Lhe sound of the last words died away the cortege moved on, and when outside the cemetery the sentimental song was taken op and sung with spirit. IU turgid editorial«, its uubouudcd credulity, Its false philosophy, and as It claims to be a Spiritualist paper, show how it has stolen the livery of heaven to serve the devil in. But Jmrt-uow we will not advertise It; per* haps^omd would take il if wc did, as. many years líjfo, people used to take the jvcíp Tor A: Herald "just to see how bad it could be. and so we should be helping to spread Insane utterances as true, or. If they were in»pirations. those of a demoniac order. But this is not what we meant to write about. There Is to be issued from the insane Asylum, Ward's Island. X. Y. City, a monthly magazine, written entirely by lunatics. Possibly the delusions may be of a different class from those produced in the journal we have mentioned above, hut we will warrant in advance that the peculiarities'of some of our Spiritualist paper«will be produced with startling verl-situillludc. We shall expect to find the bad logic, the inconsistency, the faith lu folly, the earnest defense of delusion that have so long been familiar to ns in the Banner; perhaps, if the editor Is careless we may find the saute coarse denunciation, the same profound ignorance and pretend of knowledge which a limited number enjoy In a Philadelphia paper whose name we need not meution. Possibly, a religious lunatic may be permitted to write articles Huchas our Peck hii i filan acquaintance issues out in lowa, All these things are possible, and If we find these parallel-«lu the forth-coming number of the Moon Magasine, remembering that the writers are lunatics, and don't pretend to be anything else, we shall begin seriously to doubt whether it would not be better that some of our writers who Piar Mich tnntanoc Irk*«before liurli htimn, ** make ibf impel* were. ' duly relegated tn the class they belong; if their so-called Inspiration be simple lunacy, a knowledge of the fact would do tich to prevent their insane utterances being accepted a* true, ap*l$o dofug harm, "A lunatic," says Bfickstnne In lib "Commentaries, "is'onoi that hath had understanding. but by disease, grief, or other accident, hath loot the use of lila reason; he is Indeed one properly that hath lucid Intervals, sometime* enjoying Ills sensea and sometimes not, aud that frequently depending upon the chauge of the moon." This exploded theory is embodied Jn the word "lunatic, which comes from the Latin /wiiti, the moon, and in the English phi struck." A very completqjdascription this It fits many who are not 'confined. We do not see why the' lunatics should not make a«readable a magazine, as some of our editors, whose sanity has been more thau suspected. Dr. Macdonald, who originated the idea, tellrf a reporter: "I have a whole bundle of manuscript already. There Is a very pretty poem To LoiiIm*,' written by a patient to Mine. Ixmlse M , the actress, who delighted the pet^ pie hero when she visited us lately. There b also a story by a clergyman who was once a missionary in Palestine; and we have a good article on "Moon Blindness." One feature of the paper will be a sérica of descriptions of the various Institutions on the islands; ami another will be editorial articles in reply to correspondents. We shall look /or thd first number with considerable interest; It will undoubtedly be of benefit to the writers themselves, even if It fails to furnhh valuable hints to cditqrf of other publications. C. 11. Murray of LeadrHie, Colorado, writes: There is quite a revival and a new Interest in Spiritualism In this place. There is no public organization, but many private circles that meet regularly, and the phenomena are of Increasing Interest with each additional meeting. I believe we shall soon he In a condition to have our own mediums of such strength and character that We need not go abroad for persons to produce the very highest order o f manifestations. Tbs Journal Is on sale at three of our bookstores and sometimes no extra copies can be obtained." Dr. Ct, W. King ably defends Spiritualism la the SaratogaAX. Y.) Sentinel, «gainst the attack of Rev. A. Eaton. In the conclusion of Ills review he says: Instead of Mr. Eaton tearing Spiritualism to pieces he tore hlm- seltto pieces. Of course he does out realize his shivered condition, and never will while be has a disrelish for common sense, fair dealing and truth. Hi* charitable friends will probably give him food and clothing for his body until tils soul acquires or Is forced to have an appetite for th* real bread bf life. We regret to learn that Misa Basle M. Johnson is suffering from IU health, and will be compelled to give up lecturing for a short time. The Revised Version. A i>#6*n*c reporter has been visiting dif- ferejifplaceh in this city, making critical inquiries with reference to the demand for the revised edition of the Bible, and he lias come to the conclusion that It has not proved the grent success expected, so far as Its circulation Is concerned. This he accounted for by the reason that the generality of theologians and church-going people prefer to ndhere to the old version, and their sincere belitf that there i* a place of everlasting punl^bcnt, and that place should be called ^ le ll," RoiihtliH'4they consider thnt the book which na* satisfied their ancestors all these htui- dredsof years will In turn serve them, and that there Is no need of their resorting to a more modern revision of the Holy Word. He then goes on to say, be that as It may, the fact remains that the sale of the old version" that has been in vogue for centuries has not been lu the least impaired, except for a short period, while' there is but little or no demand for this revised edition. When tie* new edition was first published by the Oxford Press In England there was an Immense demand for the work, and millions of copies were sold, tjutte an Interest was taken lu the work by theological students,but it proved only trail'dtory, as there Is hardly a «ingle minister jn Chicago who uses the new edition In the pulpit beyond an occasional reference to elucidate more fully the obscure passages occurring in portions of the old verolop. The reporter called on several of the most prominent book dealers, and questioned them with regard to the sales of the revised work, and without a single exception ail of them replied that the demand had dwindled down to almost nothing. Jansen.McClurgA:Co,stated that there was a small demand fur the new book, although the sale did not in the least Interfere with that of the old version. When the new version first made its appearance there was au Immense demand for it front people who wished to obtain a copy, as much out of curiosity as anything else, and they experienced considerable difficulty In obtaining snfficlent quantities to fill their orders. But this did not last over three months, although duriug that time they disposed of nearly 2&JU00 copies. The present demand was chiefly from customers who wished it for reference, while those who did not posses* a Testament invariably preferred the old version. The Methodist Book Concern was visited, and the reporter was infornfed by the Secretary that they did not have a call for the new version more thou once or twice a week, although the Bible trade was exceedingly brisk.- lie stated that they had sold only about 1,500 copies altogether, most of which were of a cheap edition that retailed at JO cents, hey hnd published wcostly edition of the wofk, which wof. sold only by subscription, but it had not proved a success, as the demand was principally for the standard version. A Reverend Thought-Reader. We learn from Light, England, that the Rev. K. H. Sugden has been exhibiting Ills powers as a "thought-reader" before a large audience at Bradford, after the fashion of «r. Irving Bishop aud Mr, Stuart Cumberland. Having been blind-folded lu another room, he returned to the hall where certain objects had been hidden in his absence, atid taking the hand of the hldcr he found the secreted articles in most cases without much difficulty. In the same way he successfully followed a chalk track that ha^j been drawn on the floor; und correctly Indicated the number of a bank-note. At the conclusion of his experiments, the reverend gentleman said that the whole secret of the affair was that the thought-reader obtained a direction in space from the person whose hand ho held, lie followed the line of least resistance In every instauce. It was necessary to push the hand of the - medium first one way and then another to discover this direction, but the mind so worked upon the muscles a* almost inevitably to give the required indication. The whole tiling was done In the purest uneonscloufmes*. He selected the medium's left hand in preference to the right because that baud was the most automatic. Light says that if the reverend gentleman s object was to show that Mr. Irving Bishop's thought-reading* Is nothing better than a trick, we are content to leave him and Mr. Irving Bishop to settle the nutter between them. If hls purpose was to suggest that all thought-reading is of the same character. he had better place himself at once at the feet of the Committee of the Society for Psychical Research, from whom he may learn something that will UiDgliten and surprise him." The exercises corn me morn ting the Jblh Anniversary of Modern Spiritualism at u5 S. Ada Street on last Sunday and Monday passed off to the entire satisfaction of all. The Hall was beautifully decorated with evergreens, flowers and spirit picture*. The singing, addra ea, inspirational poems, recitations, tests, etc., were all that could be desired. No event of the kind la Chicago ever passed off more pleasantly or with greater feeling of satisfaction to those present Mr. Howe will prepare a brief report of, the exercises for oar next fane.

It is assumed as part of the orthodox faith, that the Scriptures are to be regarded as a work of plenary Inspiration; that the providence of God codtrofs all events, and that his 'omniscience can alone pierce the dark future, and hence that a prophecy can only be uttered under hi* inspiration, and that the-prophetic gift is confined to those favored with that special influence, it is furrier held that the age of prophecy has passed and that the divine gift was confined exclusively to*the Jewish prophets, andthey were Infallible exponents of the future.

If it can he shown that the gift of prohhecy still exists, it will prove either that uodn reveals the events of the future to those of the present age, or that the inspiration Jhat is necessary to the perception of future events was not derived directly from Deity, either in the put or present age. Among the Jews it was not every one that was capable of being the supposed mouthpiece or the Almighty. Indeed, there existed ip that country (Judea) what were called schools of the prophets, in which many persons were trained and educated for that purpose. Borne persons that were anxious to pry into the mysteries of the future, kept several hundred prophet». Absb is reported to have had 450, and Jezabel 400 prophets. They did not always speak the truth, and they frequently upbraided each other with charges of speaking falsehoods. Indeed, God himself is accused by some of the authors of the Old Testament, of sending out lying spirits. On some occasions, it ls said, he sent out many lying spirit* to utter false statements.

It Is a well recognized fact among thinking people that Spiritualism is here, and as a distinguished hpiscopaj clergyman said in a discourse on this subject a few months ago, It has come to stay. The efforts made to stay its progress are known, but he would refer to one which was supremely ridiculous, showing the simplemindedness and ignorance of some people. The A'«f York JIrrald has conceived th 'notion of stopping the progress of Spiritualhm by excluding the advertisement# of spiritual meetings as Religions matter.

Spiritualism came because the human race needs it. and Nature provides for her offspring. Dr. Newman and Dr. Meber Newton have some of the premonitory symptoms of Spiritualism, like so many others, not counting the Nieodrfmuvev. I would like to report progress of this disease, but will only say tli^ are not convalescent. After a solo by Mrs. DeWefr, accompanied on the piano by her husband, a lengthy but scholarly address was delivered by Mr, lionry Kiddle, in part as follows. Subject: The Present Position of Spiritualism before the World: By the term Spiritualism I do not mean «Imply the facts and phenomena,or the various, doctrines that are comprehended under the name, but the great spiritual movement of this time, the object or which seems to be conversion of mankind to a system of thought and belief, not on! regard to spiritual things, tut to aclenl ethical, political and social principles The manifestation from which this movement started, as you all know, commenced athydeevjlie, March 31st. 1B43, and It t» that event which we this afternoon celebrate as the beginning of modern Bplrltualism; and It Is right to do so; for, though spirit manifestations are as old as the world, modern thought had become almost entirely estranged from them previous to tills revival; and this movement is to be distinguished from nil others of the kind, although the phenomena are doubtless governed by the name laws that have controlled similar phenomena in the pajt. For more than a generation have these demonstrations been given to the world, making converts by the million, and establishing the troth of spirit intercourse by evidence as strong as any facts accepted by the scientific schools. You are familiar with the method# of the earlier years, with the persecutions to which the mediums were exposed, and not only the mediums, but nil who dared to defend them. If the injustice land cruelties done them could be recounted In full, they would make a record of the same kind, If not quite so horrible, as that contained in Fox's famous Book of Martyrs/' The Church, when compelled to acknowledge the verity of Um? phenomena, lias usually advanced the Beelzebob theory, and this is now the settled position of Rouutn Catholic priests, Protestant clergymen see the dan -,*-* jon Jof M Dr. Buckley. i rfiifrocafc, Let the Chmalist# then have two-thirds of the Uttli. How prone is human nature to generalize rashly and irrationally' The mind thkt ha* accepted perhaps a hundred well-attested, thoroughly proven facts, supporting the reality of spirit power, often gives them all np, on reading some newspaper account or a socalled exposure of a medium. And the mi ilium whose honesty has been proved in _ hundred test «ranee«, is often condemned in toto a# a fraud, on account of the incident* of a single occasion, gt which pritiapa the conditions were totally unfavorable to genuine manifestation*. tiecenlly the well known medium Mrs. Miller, ha# been exposed, and the Rev. Dr Watson ha» been compelled to w i^ a vindication. as Alfred W. Wallace was obliged to do In England, In relation to Mrs. Wood, and a# several of us have done in Juffticejp «iher* here. And this injudicious eouiw orratalu Spiritualists in rashly condemn.sy tue strongest and best mediums In try has, f thing, been laiimoua^fothe prog res«of the movementy^ It Is Qot strange that among the Ignorant and aometimes depraved who have been drawn Into the movement, low and debasing practice«should exist, such things wen common among the Christians of St. Paul i, time, and have disgraced Christianity at every period of its history. The excesses and UeentiouAJiea# of the Anabaptists are an instructive example. These Illustrate certain phases of weak human nature, and show themselves among the adherents of eveir system, however pure and good. * / The profitable use of spirit communion reauires the elimination of the selfish spirit, that looks only to thegratifleatlon of earthly desire*, pride or ambition, the spirit of mar relousne«or curiosity, ever craving won have had me in tow (or the U it d»j or two. ut» 1 th ill h a t, a v.ry lir e, bill against tha aba,at aptakfr.

I wish to make an acknowledgment, tardy, though It be, of a vpry remarkable cimunstniice that occurred irmnetjmtriy after the irahllcallon of that ronitdunlrailoii of mine fit the Journal. A lady ltvlag In Georgia r**d it ami wrote me a letter Imploring u* -my wife bud myself to ask our guide to cure her son, a young man. of a very serious illness from which ft was thought ho wowd,<1ie. My impression i«that the disease was consumption. Of course we determined to do all we m ild and laid the matter bofore our guide at our next stance, which happened to be the same day on which the letter win received. We received a very beautiful mid important communication from our guide concerning the law«of thenire of disease by spirit agency mid jsiwor;finishing with saying that we must write to nnd comfort the mourning mother." 1 wrote to the lady the next day, but with a misgiving as 1o whether we would hear from her again ns I thought It quite probable from Hie tone of her letter that the son would die before my letter reached them or *wm after, particularly as our guhfe said, Comfort the mourning mother." We inferred that it was too late to restore the son to health, as it was likely the vital organs were too much affect- ed. Several weeks afterwards we received another letter from the lady, saying that her win began to recover immediately after receiving my letter unit that he was soon restored to health and returned to his buslnes*, in a neighboring town. We were niuctphtlfled at thé result, especially us It was almost entirely unexpected to us. My attention has been particularly recalled to this case At this time on account of another almost equally remarkable cure* of myself of a very severe attack of acute rheumatism. The circumstances are these: About the middle of last December 1 took a severe cold from which I was confined to the bouse most of the time for elx weeks and nearly all that time suffering with a painfully swollen hip. the form rheumatism usually takekjvlth me. After I had about recovered I went on a business trip to New York. Albany and Troy. While at Troy 1 took additional cold ami the rheumatism, which had not eutirely left me, began to be very serious and painful again, and all the symptoms indicated that I was about to be laid up for several weeks, which was not at all pleasant to contemplate ns I was among strangers and at a hotel under heavy expense. The' second morning after taking the cold the difficulty bud increased to siicli au alarming degree aud my bip was inflamed and swollen so much that I could With great difficulty dress myself aud could scarcely walk across the room. As It was necessary for me logo to the post office. I determined to do so and tried to put on my overcoat for that purpose but fourni it -utterly impossible lo do so. I sat down awhile {to consider what was best to do, and directly felt a spirit Inlluence coining over me and pretty soon I recognized a familiar iutcrnal voice directing me to lie down on the.bed. 1 did so, having llrst put down the curtain of the only window of my room. (After laying a few minutes in earnest nmw to flod that I might lie cured, the spirit influence at onre became nulle powerful and yet gentle, calm and inspiring. Presently it appeared to be very light in the room and I opened my eyes to see if the sun was 'shining into the room In any way, but it was quite dark, the curtain was down, and It was storming us it had been all the morning. 1 again rloaed my eyes and again It became light all about me as before, and 1 then knew It was the effect of spirit Influence on my brain. I soon fell - asleep and awoke about two hours afterwards»feeling stilt the calm and gentle spirit influence, but the pain had entirely left I arose and walked across the rnon»sever. The swelling in njy hip w. and the cold in my helul had disappeared! 1 thanked (iod for h s goddpets and mercy, put on my bools «fid coat and was going out, but the internal voice said, Not to-day. Stay In the house to-day." I did so aud felt no mm of the rheumatism. The next morning, Feb. 24th, was very cob one of the coldest of the winter. I felt a 11*- lle of Oio rheumatism after getting up. but it soon passed away and I went out Into the city, and attended to ihy business and félt nothing of the difficulty all the day and have - experienced no trouble in this direction since. N^medldne ot any kind was taken. Spirit power, under thé direction of the highest in- teuigencé I believe, was the only remedial agency at work In the case. But,more than this, as though to mata a more ^narked* and distinctive casé and to give move positive or striking evidence of spirit powhand agency iu the healing of disdaw^tatiln d my guide if he would restore my wife rhealth and especially to cúre her of a pal of el affection of one of her eye«from which she has been suffering for about a year. He replied that he would. I asked if she would be?ured soon? The voice answered, "Yea." I fell confident that it would be os promised. I returned home to Philadelphia in lesa than two weeks and found, os 1 expected, that my wife's health. was -much improved. Id fact quite good, belter tlua for o y r a year, and.that ber eye was so -unc 4 improved ahe could use it J>r^ty well. ' Here was a marked change. The affection of her eye was brought on by a ««rere cold about a v>ar ago and was at first inflamed, but as this subsided it. gradu- «ally weakened until she could «uirrely bear any tight upon it at all and was not able t> it to read or sew or for hardly any other parpóse. Professed healers had operated on it but with very little effect; and one of the ablest oeculists of car city, a professor in one ol the medical Inotiturions here was consulted, but with no good result, so that It was really a wonderful care performed by the spirit agency. She is now at this writing sitting near me and reading by a strong gas light. She could not have done this three weeks ago for a million of dollars. I have uot-the shadow of a doubt that, under proper condition of medtumsbip,'advanced spirits who have attained.to a high degree ^knowledge and power ean, act i n r In the will of the Infinite Rule?, and In accordance with hu Jaws, hear all kinds of disease# to which mankind Is liable. 1.do not mean to a y that every case of disease can be cured; for, where a vful organ is destroyed. U la extremely doubtful if even spirit power can effect a cure. But i boldly oudtruke to a y that'there is not a disease or ifialajy from which a human being Is suffering which may not be made to yield aud utterly disappear by the direct agency of spirit power. Providing K is oven in the remotest degree curable. Distance between medium and patient need not make any material difference; for, judging from the curative effects produced on trie son of the lady In Georgia, and on my wife, the one about n thousand miles away and the other over two hundred miles distant, and from what I understand are the laws controlling in hucii eases, I am led to believe that distance h not of much importance, and that by spirit agency disease ran be cured whether the patient be near or far away from the medium. But, It may be asked, can you affirm that disease can or will be cured through your mediumship in thin way? No! t rannnt so affirm. I only state what has been done, with my full belief In what ran be done under favorable conditions. 1 fenr that myovvn mrdiuiit'diip Is not (if a sufficiently'high order to have disease cured through me in the way Indicated. K may be asked fu rth er, a re there any m e dium * tlir i of evil spirits, and urged their friends Li give them another opportunity of proving the genuine** of the lady's medltimshlp. Mr. Phamplon s justice and generosity yielded to their Importunity, and the same party that had gathered on the previous occasion again assembled. Mr. Allen, who had offered to submit to aiiy tret, proved obstlnata that evening, and failed to make good his own offers, and his wife when taken Into a private apartment hy seven ladles, permitted.the examination of all her clothing except her hoots, the llrsbfew buttons of which (t was noticed were unfastened, When one of the ladles attempted to examine these, the fair medium threw her dress over them In such a way as to conceal them, at the same time trying to kick something under a bureau or other article of furniture neajr which she was standing. The ladles, however, were too quick for her, and some very pretty rosebuds, neatly done up In crape, were found reposing snugly inside the leather. There was m> stance that evening.- 1'AHtutijphin Intjiiirli thd fh whrou way?1 1 (j il Irre a JO till*. 11 iroy disci 2 high on! a lung ih to lw wary to r tltl* irre have work. Sn Leen ritorte«!

An arousing exposure has just taken plare in Spiritualist circles In this city, dashing the hopes and staggering the faith of sonic of the believers, and delighting others, whose creed i s so Hr in I y based ns In be beynn d Hi e in lliuuice of such trifles as the unveiling of one Ingenious party after another.

In the city promised to emulate Sir Janies Hliss, ttiough, with modesty and cun' tlon highly creditable to them they hml not ventured to aspire beyond inateitiillztug flowers. Forms were shlf a toueh above their ineillurolstlr powers when the exposure came, and now It seems probbtde that they will ever remain so. Mr. Allen, who Is a painter by trade, found that the profession of a medium was much easier nnd nrore genteel than»eliding tin brush, and accordingly had seizures possessed, obsessed and entranced, while Mrs. Allen was favored hy tier guides with rare hot house flowers brought from Hie vales of Paradise. She appeared nt various houses laboring, among other,, the residence of Mr. Samuel Wheeler, on Francis street, above ttldge avenne; of President Champion, ai No. ;*X> Sooth Tenth street, and of a personal friend on North Twelfth street, near Berks, not to mention tiro elegmil homo of President S. P, Ka.se, of the I-ehigh and Fasten! Hail Tiro si'anees were nhxpys dark ones, nnd as Mr. Alien, through tbevioniblimtlon, radiation and conservation snf Ids magnetic force, was of great assistance tn his spirit guides In bringing Hie flowers from the tropics. or from some point stilt more distent, the husband and wife wereaccustomedtoneeupy a sofa, while the 'circle" sat In a semi-circle some lijhtnnre in front of them. Mre. Allen's hands were always left free; but her husband, to show that the lady received no aid from him. wan accustomed to put his left baud on his next neighbor's right, and then his right hand on hts next neighbor's left, and so on very much after the fashlou.of children at play. The "coiidlilons" being thus in readineea, flowers began to drop from the celling or somewhere else, Into the laps, on the heads, Into the hands, and down at the feet of the members of the circle. The most singular feature of the exhibition was the profusion of flowers, a point which failed to be urged against the cavils and doubts of skepticism, for when anybody else approached the sofa he or she was warned away, less the magnetic Influence should be interfered with and the current broken. To demonstrate the genuineness of the manifestation the clothing of the new flower me- dinm was subjected always before the ocunee to a close and careful search hy a jury of matrons, who fatted on several occasions to find mny flower» concealed, and who. when ilie'flnral tokens were subsequently distributed among the andlenee In the dark, vouched enthusiastically tor the genuineness of,the manifestations. Home of the scenes were very affecting. as tokens from dear ones beyond the tomb were received by one and another of the company, and no things might bate gone on hail not the Jury that assembled on the last evening, at Hiceresldence of Mr. Champion been rather more inquisitive than their prod sc sapors. The eoneeguence was that they lid discover, it to alleged, a eonningly concealed India robber bag. tightly imied with dew-be- sprtnkled flowers n surprising quantity. The announcement of the find w u a thunderbolt to the assembled company, and the whole story has just leaked oat through a confer- enea which w u held the other evening at Ninth and Soring Garden streets..

He would print whaulio deemed to be infidel book, though he hated infidelity, he said, but ho could not and would not print any thing a* bad as Spiritualism. The natural result of this torrent of obloquy followed. To the Attack, the Spiritualists of that day opposed, at first, defence; and ae they came to know their power, as they gathered the facts, and learned how to reason from them, defence turned Into attack, arid they repaid blow with blow, scorn with scorn, and Christian and Spiritualist veritably hated each other howerer forbidden such a feeling might be by the creed of one and the philosophy of the other, and however unfavorable such a feeling might be to the calm equipoise needed for a correct judgm ent on the points In dispute. There are many (not so many as of old) among us to-day, who exult la the memory of that time, and rehearse the sharp utterances of their favorites with infinite gusto, and think the construct!* tendcucy now discoverable in Spiritualism a thing to be deprecated, a confession of weaknew. They deem nothing active t halls not aggressive, believe strong negation the best form of affirmation, always harp on the need of tearing down before rebuilding is possible. To them destruction Is divine, while as to construction, they have not got to that yet. We respect the opinion of the battie-eearred veteranlof the past the thing they did was the wisest thing they were able to do lu their time; but as we look over theflyld to-day, it seetns to ns that gentler counsels, less yielding to passion, more reliance on reason and lew on Impulse, would have bad wider, more listing reeulto. But'we have not to do with the past, only the present, and to protest as beet we may, against Spiritualism dwelling in the past, acting cm the traditions of the past, acting us If the past, with Its bitterness of denunciation and persecution were here now. when certainty it is not. Now, hero and there, one attacks (aud that oiie only, because he knows nothing of the matter,) when of old the Spiritualist was completely surrounded with enemies.' Now, evaffgclicul preachers do not hesitate to publish the facts which demonstrate Spiritualism to be true. The philosophy based on those facts has penetrated, up-heaved, vitalized llie whole church. Now, Spiritualism Is no bar socially; a man I* not universally denounced as either a fool or a criminal, because he believes that spirits cau and. do communicate with us. Now our conferences hold more inquirers than continued Spiritualists, and every earnest investigator Is sun to become a Spiritualist. Now almost without the old enemies, is it wise to be always trying to make new ones? ' Negation without affirmation, destruction without any purpose of reconstruction, denouncing old faiths rather than proclaiming the new and better oiie, if it were ever wise. Is not so now. Be it our task to lead men from wrong thought and practice by showing a more excellent way," overcomiug them by reason, not overwhelming them by ftbttsp. n HJJs hard, however, to keep within moderate bounds when denouncing fraudulent medium*. We can respect those who, honestly differing In opinion, oppose us, but to feel that these traders in our holiest affection*. those who stab Spiritualism In the dark while professing to be its apostles to know they are held up n* the highest exponents of Spiritualism, while they are Us most deadly foes, und not utter some of the «qorn that every honest man and woman must feel, l* a tn*k indeed.

Peter Cooper, who passed to spirit life a few days ago, once had a remarkable experience with an Episcopal Bishop, lie gave the following account of it; "I have just had a curious caller; an Episcopal Bishop who came to see if,1 would not join some evangelical church,' so that, when I came to die, nobody should say that (lie Cooper Union was established hy an atlirt«or Infidel. I told him 1 wa* not nn atheist or infidel; I was a Cuitarían In belief;4 knew no object ot worship except the one living and true God; and ] considered religion nothing more nor less than a science by which the movements of the material and moral world could be regulated; and that I knew no better teacher than the opinions of mankind. He politely said thnt he perceived that I was a scholar. This compliment I wa* obliged to decline, and I j told him I had never been to school than three or four mouths in all my life. If I had my way, I told him, the worst of the human race, the most depraved wretches, should wake up In another life, not In torment, but in the midst of loring friends and beautiful tilings. The good Bishop did not even try tocouvert me to any better theology, but he went away with every expression of kindness-kindness which I auiaure he felt." * Thurlow Weed tells of a similar visit he had after he wa* (SOfrom a complacent young sprig from the divinity school, aud how lie received him. It was a very interesting interview indeed, but the venerable journalist did most of the talking, and the seriousminded youth retired moreserlous than ever. How absurd and how incomprehensible it Is," said Mr. weed, "that clergymen *hopld Imagine that a thoughtful man can pve to years of maturity amid death and suffering without having given grave attention to the puzzles of this life and the problems of the next," *4Preacher Hell's Case. A special to the ('hitago Tribune from Tarboro, X. C., say* that intelligence was received there of a terrlbit affair at Scotland Neck. It seem* that a short timo since Mrs. Bell died suddenly and was burled by her husband. Suspicions were aroused as to the cause of her death, and parties went to the grave to exhume the remains that an examination might be had. Bell met them at the grave with a shotgun, and threatened tosbootthem If they attempted to open the grave. The crowd went off and got reinforcements, returneé, took Bell s gun,and dog op the corpse. The neck had been broken. Bell has been arrested and lodged in the county jail, it Is said that he kilted his wife because she would not sign a deed he told her to sign, and upon her refusal he became so enraged that be assaulted her, with the reeau above stated. BeR has lived in that section many years and is known as "Preacher? Bell. He wa* formatiy a member of the Primitive Baptist Church, but he has long since ceased to member of this church, from -which he expelled for his misconduct. How Funerals should be Conducted from a Crematory Htandpolnt. ** We learn from an exchange that the Xutjpnal Cremation Society was fully organized April 4th In Philadelphia, the preliminary meeting about a month ago having been attended by six gentlemen and one lady, who thought a popular move in favor of cremation could be better induced through an organization than by mere individual example. Otto Gautzer, who wan one of the most active lu advocating the Idea, wo* made President, and after some rules had been drawn up, the official organization wns completed by ejecting a full hoard of officers. The rules referred principally to the methods In which funeral* should be conducted, and provided thnt the society should furnish a coffin, hearse and one carriage, and pay all other expense* of transporting the body from the late residence to llu* crematory. If the retatloi the deceased wished to Invite their friends or make any of the usual display of a funeral, they were to havo the right to do no at their own expense. Comruunicatlon with the own ers of the crematory at Washington, Pa., brought hack the answer that they would reduce bodies to ashes at the rate of f!5 a piece, and It wa* decided to make the Washington institution the active agent In carrying out the Society s work. To provide a fund for expenses, a classified entrance fee Is provided, based on a similar expectation of life to that In use by life insurance companies, ranging from Afl to f 10. Members over sixtyfive years old will have to pay the full expenses, and a class of member* w ho will not take active part in the society's affaire will also be charged full price. Converted by Seance*. Under the above head a.special dispatch from Cincinnati to the Chicago Tribune seta fort!) that nearly two hundred members of ftt. Francis' aud St. John s Roman Catholic Churches there ha Ye suddenly developed Into Spiritualist*. Their action in attending the 'ancee was severely denounced from the pulpits of both of these churches, arid during the week active efforts have been made to persuade them to escape from the influence of the mediums. Families have been divided, and the regioihn and vicinity of thechurche*. named is much wrought up over the matter. To yield to Spiritualistic teachings lsconsidgrave transgression hy the Catholic*. The Rev. Maximilian Bliaeffer and Vicar General Otto Jair, who are in charge of the churches in which th^strange doctrine has taken root, state that those who have yield d to It have been as a rule the unstable members of their congregation*, and they think that the class of people who can be affected by Spiritualism Is nearly exhausted." Thus the good work goes on. The Catholic Church can not even withstand the illuminating influence of Spiritualism. Richard Wagner's Belief. No. ft of Spiriiunliittiche Blatter, contains i article by J. U. Cavlezal, in memory of Richard Wagner, and concludes the same with the great master s own Confession of Faith, as follows: T believe In God, Mozart, and Beethoven, and In their disciples and apostles. I believe in the truth of the one indivisible Art, I believe that this Art come* from God, and lives *ie hearts of all enllghtened.people. I be-... 1thnt whosoever indulged but once In the HUbllme pleasure* of mis graud Art, Is bound to her in devotion for all eternity, and can never deny her. I believe that through this Art all will be blessed. I believe in the damnation of all those who In this %orld dared to practice usury with the pure and noble Art, whom they disgraced and dishonored, because of the baseness of their hearts, and of their vile eager ness to gratify their lust, "On the other hand, I believe that the true disciple* of Music will bo glorified in a spiritually fine texture of sunlit, fragrant euphonies, and united with the Divine Source of all harmony in eternity." Wong Chin Foo, the editor of The Chinese American,.will publish in a short time his English translation of the greatest historical Chinese drama, "Fan Ton; or, The Royal Slave." The work of translating the play wa* begun about two years ago. "Fan Ton; or, The Royal Slave," ranks in Chinese literature as Homer's "IHad" and "Odyssey" do in Greek, and Shakespeare's historical plays do in English literature. It was written twelve hundred years ago by Rung Ming, a direct descendant of Confucius. At that time civilization was at its highest point. Men and women studied at the same universities and competed for the same literary honors, Since that time the play bait steadily, held Its place on the eastern; stage. The Christian Union says; *' Co-edocation does not involve treating girls asjf they were boys,* or boys as if they wei e gifts. It involves opening the fountains of knowledge, and all fountains of all knowledge, to»j1 comers, and leaving nature to assert herself and provide for her own wants. In other words, co-education and a wise optional I*m must go together. Girls are educated in Cambridge University, England, to a limited extent, in 'the same place, from the same book, by the same teachers,* and are not unsexed by the process..

13 APRIL H, through the instrumentality of an unvarying law which, directly or indirectly, la under the guidance or control of spirit working In obedience to the infinite intelligence -God. There is, said the speaker, such a tiling as volition; all animate nature give* expression to that grand truth. Why not, then, expect it to exist in the universe outslije of the organic structure? If derived directly iron/ nature, why not suppose that it must exist therein, or otherwise It must have betu a special creation. There 1* apparently something self-existent in the atom, that can will. You can not grasp that which is commonly designated a* nothing; even If you think, contemplate or consider, nothing can not be a factor thereof. However, if every atom has volition, why does not ( ach one act as if an individual entity and endowed with certain line* or marks of intelligence? Man as a combination of atoms and molecules, poasense* volition, and the *ingle atom may possible possess In degree what the aggregate do In the physical organization of man. All atoms constitute in the aggregate an infinite number of atoms, nud combined therewith may bo Infinite Intelligence, bo atoms love, hate, feel thrills of ecstatic joy or the sad emotions of sorrow? Combined they do? Why not, then, the single atom possess the attributes to a certain degree of all? Materialization consists simply of a combination of atoms, forming a figure; aggregated they become visible to the sens* of.sight. Atoms thus collected together are obedient to the will of spirits, and assume such a form as they may dictate, and are dissipated a«easily as united. The body which has been gradually evolved or developed, is simply a materialization around the immortal spirit which U envelope* as with a garment. That which Is the most tangible nud real of each one, t* not the physical organization, the outer body. It can be easily dissipated, but the soul, the Immortal spirit, is so enduring aud substantia) that it lives forerer, and rise* superior to ail the adverse condition*.of earth. The higher one ascend* in the scale of existence, the more real and substantial does everything become. The speaker then considered the polarity of atoffm, and the mystery of their varied combination, and the part they act in materialization. A spirit may not be present when a form is materialized that contains his facial expression and peculiarities. He may be hundreds of miles away, yet through the Instrumentality of his will, a figure of himself is evolved and move* temporarily There «HI be a Lime Social and Musical Entertainment lielipat Martiue * Hall, K, Ada St., ou Wednesday everting, April Ibth, for the benefit of Cite Second Society of Spiritualist«, Misa Julia f.tebcrkn»?cht, Geo.

He took for hi* text a drawing of a tree with its foliage and route, and showed by analogy how the young could lie taught spiritual truth». Mrs. A. K. Cooley, Mi 1» and Mr. \Vm*C.

The spirits through Mr. J. t legg Wright,»poke In a very able manner on The present and future outlook for Spiritualism from the spirit aide of view." The closing addresses Sunday evening were on "Spiritual Lam, retrospective and prospective, by <. P, McCarthy. P. M. Cole. W. C. Bowen and J. Clegp Wright, all were able aud were well T*Mra.

The dolly papers gave full nud fulr report», and the immediate result will he aeon in the additional respect shown for our faith by the outside world. Hon. A. B. Hailey presided at most of the meetings, with dignity and grace. We were favored with line vocal and instrumental music by the choir, and solos by Mrs. Mary K. Wheeler, Miss Ida Albei to, Mrs. Winters, Miss Minnie Smith and Prof. Noye. The ladles of the Society furnished * refreshments to all who desired to stay from one meeting to the next.

Marline's Half was beautifully decorated with evergreen wreaths studded with sparkling Bowers gracefully suspended aud woven through the air above, making a web of beauty; flags and pictures, Interspersed with wreaths ana mottoes graced the walls, among which were some of Mrs. Blair s trance paintings and a large picture of K. V. Wilson. It aeemed like an enchautcd spot, hallowed with beauty and lighted by the love of heaven. All who entered there seemed to feel the VKden around," which evoked the heaven within tlieuj and made this a day long to be remembered. The commemorative exercises commenced Saturday evening, March 31st, at the parlors of l)r. 8. J. Avery (continuing over Sunday and Monday at 65 S. Ada street), and consisted in singing and recitations of a high order by James G. Clark. Prof. Dixon, and Dr. Avery; and an exquisite poem Improvised by Mrs. Kmmn Nichols. The music throughout wo» the best that could be desired. The Home choir more than fllled the bill. "Where are you going so fast old man?" rendered by Dr. Deo. B. Nichols, was impressive and Instructive. The journey of life, fía trials aud triumphs, the valley of death and the glory beyond, hi vltlng his trembling»fops toward the shining strand, the deep pathos and tender nadence», all touched the sensitive son! as with the Anger of prophecy. i The address of welcome, ip the absence of 1 the President was ably given by Dr. Thatcher, Vice President, tie expressed deep regret* at the necessary absence of Col. John C. Bundy, our esteemed President, whose place he was called to All. He grem eloquent as he advanced, urging us to life by the broad and holy principles of Spiritualism. It Is not a religion to be ashamed of. He felt Its exalting power and the world mint grow better under Us benign Influence. Dr. u. H. Geer s address wai vigorous, radical and brimming with sense, bristling with good points and made a marked linpresslr the office of medium ship, but criticised the - Extravagant pretentious of some.

Let us abide by the facts, not try to force them to our theory. W'e are immortal by nature, not by miracle or any divine favoritism. We must ilve. - We may abuse ourselves, but we cannot die. We must leant to make the best use of our lives. If Spiritualism was aggressive, it had been lighting in,»elf-defense. It is tor educate the world and must remove false iuinressjons tirsi.

Chicago Quartette Club and Miss UalboutiDixon, the elocutionist, and M r r Emma Nichols, being the chief attractions.

Nichols improvtaod a poem, while entranced, which was received with hearty applause and was superior to most Improvisations of the kind. It was a? agreeable surprise to many. The Monday meeting was well attended and devoted mostly to conference and rood l- umshin. Excellent remarks were made by Mrs. Bamnels-Shepard. Mrs. Fellows, Mrs. 8'tupson and others. Mrs. Nteholsgave nome interesting descriptions of what1 she saw, which were recognized as flue testa. The ball and sociable on Monday evening was a pleasant affair and seemed to be enjoyed by all present Much credit la doe the Secretary. Mr. D. F. Trefrey, to whose earnest and persistent.yfforts in organizing this jubilee we ar-e indebted. Sunday was the royal day replete with in- 8^ration aud good feeling, and though the ret day of April, no one.was- fooled by coming to our Jubilee. TbosE who did not attend fooled themsolves out of what they cannot sopplv in the whole year elsewhere.

Now and then. It 1» true, an individual whose religion Is unsettled, inaulfe»u a little froth upon the surface, hut as the evidence of both past and present is so easily made available, that which is pure aud peaceable can quickly bo chosen. We expected to have public exercises here in commemoration of our 35th Anniversary, but speakers from abroad could not bo had, so we had a private gathering of a few In a private parlor. About twenty-five of our little band of workers assembled on Sunday evening, April 1st, at the house of the writer, to take a little survey of the past and to plan for the future. Original poems ami essays were called for. and with the mediums present who spoke under control, nud by tfiose who could see and describe the spirits, the small hours of the night were hastening upon us before they wore welcome. We feel assured that we have made some progress since our last anniversary. Mrs. Brigham's ministrations have boon of a character (o command respect. We expect to he better accommodated for a hall than we have been. We hope also to have our lectures more frequently. Not having the financial strength that the fashionable organizations have, we must be content to be regarded in a worldly sense on a low plane. There is more vitality, however, In a few who work for conscience sake than In the many who may be influenced by other motives. We have met with a great loss in the removal of the late Dr. Bedortha. Earnest and conscientious, eminently practical, his integrity and intelligence undisputed, and having so long occupied such high standing In the church, that when his conversion to the spiritual took place it made a profound Impression. Mrs. Brigham gave a funeral discourse to which a large number of hla former church brethren listened, most of them expressing enthusiasm of Us masterly It Ie pab ' * power. a painful to see what efforts a j t o m.

Saratoga Springs, N. Y. P. Thompson, The Illiterate Cobbler.- "There are stranger things In heaven and earth,. Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." I have lived In the world for quite a respectable number of years. My origin aud family do not concern the reader; nor would It interest him very much were I to enter into a minute description of them. It will not stretch the reader s credulity too much to fnfprui him that during the course of my life I have met many things which I could neither explain nor undemand. It Is presumed that this la pretty much a common experience, as the prodigy who knows and Understands all things ha* not yet visited these "glimpses of the moon." I am now about to rewe an incident In my experience which 1 caihiot explain and must leave to the Ingenuity your readers. Doubtless there are some among them who may be able to give the explanation which is beyond my power. Among my acquaintances was a young and Interesting gentleman. the son of well to do parents, around whose life wealth threw all luxuries and omforts. But the boy was the victim of an abscess, situated on tne neck, which resisted the highest medical skill aud threatened the lad's existence. Every species of medication hod been tried; the most talented medical mo oi'ii th- whole routiufjit had been visited; change of clime and scenery had been sought aud money had been lavishly expended; but nil In vain. The caae grew worse and Vrorae; the abscess persisted and the boy was reduced to the very extremity of life. In the neighborhood there Jived an old cobbler whom rnmor represented as having been successful tu performing many cure«in eases that had foiled the best medical talent. This man was a clairvoyant. Now most people pronoucea clalrvoyaucy a humbug. It may be so; but it has given manifestation to certain facts which cannot be overborne even by the philosophic cry of humbug." Nor have the (Usputers of Its claims been able to show us now Its phenomena have been produced. To cry "humbug" is about the easiest way of escaping ao Inexplicable difficulty.' But then the stubborn fact remains notwithstanding, and wlu not vanish before the contemptuous humbug," Fbople in extremity will grasp at any thing which promisee even a shadowy relief, and the faith that hopes against hope will clutch with wondrsus power even that against which the understanding struggle*. A drowning man will grasp a straw. A dying mad will clutch at any thing which presents a hope of life. We know not what' we will do till circumstance«enforce upon ua necessity. It occurred to the mind* of my friends that as a last extremity they would consult the cobbler clairvoyant regarding their boy. The father hesitatingly communicated his Intention to me, and invited me to go with him to the consultation. I agreed to go. bat felt much shame and humiliation In the contemplated mission, and we entered into an agreement that none of friends should ever knew that we had ever been ao degraded as to go on such an errand; or had been so lacking In common sense as to descend to the foolishness of consulting a clairvoyant. >Ve hail consulted educated medical talent; we had put ourselves under the guidance of the highest neiontlffc education; we had consulted educated and cultured medical skill; whatever the highest medical endowments had explored of the caring of disease had been made tributary to our necessities; and now wo had fallen to such a degradation as to consult positive ignorance and mind In it* most animal type, In the form of an unlettered cobbler, Ignorant almost as the very animals with which he shared a common life; aud acquainted with nothing outside of wax, nails and leather. A cobbler, and clairvoyant at that, fudge! It 1» too ridiculous; everybody will laugh at us, and our friends will have no end of fun at our expense. We shall so become the butt of their ridicule that we shall never he able to»how our faces; our absurd escapade must never be*known; we cannot afford to let It out. We agreed however to test the*capacity of our renowned Ksculapius. It was agreed that we should visit him and not com muni cate to him either which one of us was sick, or what was the disease. The abscess in tl.e boy's neck was in -such a position that it could he covered with lit» clothing, so as to remain absolutely out of sight. He was instructed to so keep his head erect that no suspicion could be raised as to the concealed from view. We went tori house. Wo found him r apartment, eiigagednu ms waxy occupation, surrounded by pmtfgs of leather, the various irifttru- meuts or III» profession, aud old and badly smelling shoes. Ills wife was evidently trying to help him In his vocation. She was a true helpmeet, was that wife of the cobbler, an we discovered before our Interview ended. She was his fair counterpart lu physique but somewhat his superior lu mental culture. She could read a little, and write less, but he could do neither. 1 sat aud looked on the man in dazed bewilderment and despised myself for the folly that permitted me to come on such a fool's crrbnd, the bare idea of consulting that ojuti on a question of health, or of any thing else, was too absurd. As he sat on his cobbler s stool, he appeared to me to be an incarnation of the sheerest animalism, he was bullet-headed, grossly chubby, hog-necked, club-nosed and squinted. Ills heavy face seemed never to have been on lightened by one intelligent idea; and yet we had come to consult this man on the curability of a case of disease, on which the whole sclentlflc medical resources of the world had expended Itself In vain. It was too absurd, too ridiculous, too prepostetous, too degrading for anything! But there I was In it and obliged to await the Issue, which I could have given any possible or impossible thing to And an exit out of the disgraceful position. We Informed this unique specimen of humanity tliot we had come to seek his advice concerning one of our number who was HI of a supposed Incurable disease. We neither indicated which wb» 111 nor what was the nature of the trouble. The cobbler laid aside the old shoe which bail been exercising hi* Ingenuity In Its repair to address himself to the consultation which we sought. His wife now proved herself to be a true helpmeet. She immediately supplied her- dr with pencil aud paper, and sat down ^ ;a table in preparation to record the sentence»: that might fall from the oracular lip» or her lord. During this time my»tate >f mind had changed, and I was Ailed with jn Irrepressible amusement. The scene became so ludicrous thatfnwas with difficulty I restrained my laugnlor. The cobbler took his wife's hand, formed a circle of onr bands, and almost* immediately fell Into extraordinary and violent muscular convulsions. Ills limbs were now violently drawn up, aud Immediately, as violently stretched out, while his face took on the most horrible contortions. These twitching» and convulsion* continued for a short time and were evidently beyond the man's control. He seemed to be suddenly cut off from connection with his surrounding* and to be brought under the influence of some mysterious and invisible power. Tbcn a condition of calmness succeeded; the convulsions ceased, and a peculiar plltcldlty and calmness spread over the hitherto expressionless face. My amusement vanished a* soon a* the first convulsion had shaken Ills stalwart frame. I was now filled with a species of undefinable fear, aud listened with a kind or respectful dread to hear what sentences the man might utter, while In a condition appearing to mo unearthly. This was hi* first sentence.,j-my boy there is a very bad abscess on your neck." Need 1 say that oh hearing thi* Hoiitence, I was amazed; that I was no longer inclined to treat the matter a» a ridiculous joke, to be engaged In which very first sentence was the uttorauce of _ fact of which the man had no previous knowledge and which he could not know dhve by some mysterious communication which I then di«l( not understand, and which I now do not binderstaud. His next sentence. "It i* badrvery bad." "Can yrtucure It?" we asked. "0 yea, quite easily. What' is the cause of the trouble?",we asked." "It arises from a disorderly condition of the stomach." During this conversation this illiterate cobbler made use of technical.medical term»; he also prescribed the proper medicine* to effect a cute, using technical terms In the prescription. His wife setting at the table wrote down every word which fell from her husband's Up», but her «pelting was of the Isaac Pitman type. It was phonetic, but produced by an orthographic Jaw which was peculiarly her own. She imitated no speller that ever lived, and certainly she shall never have an Imitator. But the apothecary to whom the perscrlptlon was presented was able to make it out, and to furnish all the ingredients save one, a peculiar kind of moes which could not be found in any of the drug stores. The father of the boy went hack to the cobbler, to inform him that the moes could not be procured. The cobbler again took hands, again convulsed, again enthused, then.quieted down, and In this apparent trance state actually told the place where the moss, could be found growing at the roots and on the trunks of tree«. The place was fborteen mite«distant; it was visited and the moes procured as the cobbler had said. The prescription was mode op and the boy took the medicine according to directions. Yon are anxious to hear the result, you are, perhaps, laughing lawacdiy at our folly; you ate dismissing the whole thing with a contemptuous humbug. But stay; In five week s time that abeceas was gone, and health, and life wept through the veins, which fire weeks before were the channels of disease and death. This U the (act; can yon explain It? Medical science failed. The accumulated experience of centuries of scientific investigation afforded no relief, but a prescription from an unlettered and Ignorant cobble clairvoyant wrought a cure of what was pronounced incurable, audit really saved from death-* Ud of promise, who otherwise must have perished under the irresistible power of an incurable disease. 1 may remark that outside of this apparent trance»(ate, the cobbler knew nothing either of disease or medicine, and after his return to Ills normal condition, he knew nothing of what he had said or done In the clairvoyant condition. The boy is now u young man. financial managing partner In one of the largest and most powerful commercial houses In one of our cities. The story of hi* cure 1» a solemn fact: he will yet show you the scar of tint death-threatening abceas from whose power he was saved by a clairvoyant s prescription. Tlajrvovancy may Itself be the most gigantic of glghiitic humbugs, but the abet*»«was healed, and Ihe boy s life was saved, This stubborn fact resists (lie cry of "humbug" and will not away even at the philosopher s sneer. What was it? A. M. Morrison In Grand Fork» Herald, \A Strange Case. A notion Girl Subject to Trance» Ilring» Salt Again»! a Catholic Trie»! fo r Taking from Her Her Angela and 8ub»tituting a Rotary, The civil suit of Lizzie M. Gannon, by her next friend, against John 11. Flemming, Homan Catholic Priest, was begun In court tost week in Boston, Mass., damages alleged ifi.fid). Archbishop William», of the diocese, joined a* a defendant, and tho case excite» much interest among Catholics throughout the country. In August, 187d, tho plaintiff, then about 13 year» old, became subject to "trances" or swoons of an epileptic nature. These came on involuntarily, aqd not the sunie flort of trances familiar to tho believers in Spiritualism, Still, this girl, when In this semi-conscious condition which the epileptic swoon induced, claimed to soe and talk with certain spirits of the dead, particularly that of her brother Frauk, deceased some years prior. Those trances came on at Intervals of about a month or two months till April, ItiTU, when, having been overcome by one of them, she flrrtt showed to the member» of ihe family a little box containing two Images as they were called, each being a representation on a semi-transparent card of the form of a cupid. These forms appeared more distinctly when the card was held before a light strong enough to pass through it. The girl colled these Images "angels, and said that they had been given to her by this spirit of her brother. 'Hie spirit, a*»he related, tojd her that sho must-carefully keep them, And If she did bo he would give her something better after a while. Where, In fact, the cards or pictures come from no one seem* to know, nud the conviction of several members of the family, a* well as of the girl herself, was that they were of»upernatural origin. When the trance passed away the girl was so far restored to health that she could walk about the streets and attend to ordinary duties. At such times she gave no attention to the Images, but whenever Ihe trance came over her again she would call for the Images and these, when in her hands or within her sight, had a quieting effect upon her which promoted her return to n normal state of consciousness. On one of these occasions a member of thwfamlly thought the girl to. be in a dying state, and sent for the curate, Kh'imnliig. Eventually. Flemming took away ana kept the two images against the girl s consent and substituted a rosary. De- K rived of what she called her angel»,"»he ecame more and more despondent, and the epileptic or hysterical conditions became aggravated, so that «be is now sightless and speech I e*«, and hopelessly prostrated. Members of the family made repeated efforts to recover the images from the curate, and sought the Intercession of tho Archbishop. These effort* were met with a refusal to take action on the part of the defendants. Three witnesses were examined to-day, the mother and the sister of the sick girl, and the Archbishop. He was taken out of course by courtesy. The two sisters and the mother were brought ud Catholics. The father l* a Protestant. Various beliefs peculiar to the Catholics, regarded as superstitious by Protestant«, appear In the testimony. The priest Flemming seem* to hare encouraged the business for a while, hoping to draw oat some preternatural or supernatural doing» or saying* from the girl which might help the church in shoeing that miraculous power»till remains to it. He wanted everything done through the con jury of the rosary, however, and not by the cupid». Tho sick girl, though a good Catholic, stuck to her cuplds, whicn.she called angels. There Is testimony that five bleeding wounds appeared on the girl In the place* - corresponding to the wounds of the crucified Savior.* The physician who was called did not see these wound.*, which were mere puncture* and closed up from time to time. The mpther did not see them, but saw spots of blood on the girl s clothing. The Archbishop denies all re*j)ou- sibiluy, saying that the management of pariahes and the consolations administered to the sick and dying are wholly at the dia- cretlon of the local priest. AJi the power the Archbishop ha* is to remove a priest if he abuses hla trust, aud he did not then thlbk this such a case.

Beard, the Agnostic* As to Thorne, Ills last words were: "No preacher, toll Bobeon." In accordance with Mr. Thorne s request, th> re were no religious ceremonies,but Stuart iiobsou, Mr. Thorne's most intimate friend, made this brief address: Twelve years ago Thorne, Robert Craig and I made a compact that whoever of us survived the others should do what could be done to keep the preacher «way from the funeral. Tliirne went to Europe and Craig died suddiudy. fits family insisted on having the usual religious services at the funeral. I told them of Craig's well* kuown wish tu the matter, but they insisted. The minister who conducted the service ha^ all the prejudices commou then In his profession, and he began to apologise for the evil which this young man had committed In adopting aprofeaslouthathadso many evil associations, while his talents iu u respect*. able calling might hare brought him great honor. He thought that he was justified In averting that in spite of this Mr. Craig might have a hop«dflieavtfn. I told Thorne this when he returned'from Europe, and it increased his feelings against such proceedings. He said he did not wish all sorts of people to be running to his funeral at the Little Church Around the Corner just because, he was an actor, and the last words he said to his wife were: No preacher, tell Robson.' " Dr. George M. Beard was au Agnostic. He hud do belief in a God or a future life. Wheu he died his widow said: Let there be such a funeral as George would Have preferred." But his two brothers were Congregational ministers, and they choose a Congregational service in church, with; Dr. Taylor to preach the sermon. The clergyman stood over the cibiket of the distinguished scientist and knew not what to say. He hidlno wor& to meet t&e exigency no thought fit for the occaelou. He stammered out that he had tried nc,t to tw present, and wouldn t have been if the friends bad not beeo no urgent. He looked down it the widow weeping quietly lu the front pew. and said: "1 am here to offer consolation to bis bereaved companion: and to her I iqould sav that, if her dear departed husband vr^s» Christian. It js well with* hint!" From this the New York'correspondent says, "he went from bad to worse, preaching a long sermon which was a eulogy of orthodoxy, with a Uttle of Dr, Beard thrown In, and ending by warning his auditors of the peril of dying In u&bellef. If he had thought about it six months, he roulcl not have conceivqji remarks which would have been more inappropriate or Incongruous, ilow much better would have been a funeral where the add reaves could bare been made by Dr. Beard's distinguished scientific friends, who had worked with him and loved him, who knew the great service he had performed for the world, and conld toll how he had acquitted himself f" How will we be burled Vdepends altogether on the honesty arid religion of those Who assume charge of the east-oil garment If they are deeply imbued with a belief in orthodox teachings, and consider that nothing can be Mfely substituted for aa orthdox sermon at the funeral, they will determine how V RELIGIO-PHILOSÖPIIICAL JOURNAL. APRIL yopr mortal remains uiay be disposed of, independent of any request that might have been made by you before the vital spark had vanished. If you desire to be cremated, mummified as the body of Makzinl was by Dr. Marini, or buried under the Inliuence of charming music on the violin, as was i eminent lawyer In England at one time, have your body exposed to the ravages of wild birds, os practiced by certain Indian*, you must so stipulate In your will, and make your bequetu contingent on the fulfillment of your wishes. If you nre poor, however, you had belter let tbe "drift of drcuiustauces" determine the nature of the dual disposition of your body, and thereby prove as little trouble to your surviving relatives as possible. If, however, you are of a philanthropic turn of mlud, mid wish to benefit humanity, one of the best method* to dispose of your mortal body, Is to bequeath It to some asplrlug but itupecunions medical student, and let him carefully dioaect It, and leagi something by so doing of the wonderful mechanism of the human system, and thereby render hluiself better prepared to master various diseases which ho may be called upon to treat. The question of choice os to burial should, some claim, be left to each oue; each one should be allowed as much freedom lu de^ tcrmluing the niotlual of disposing of his lifeless body, aa in the indulging«; the taste1 while blooming with tlie vigor of health. But those who are opposed (and nearly all are) to cxjiosing the body to vultures and other ravenous birds of the air, must bear In mind that if buried th e, body becomes the food of worms, which is as luscious a morsel to them undoubtedly, os au oyster stew or ripe fruit is to you In your most healthy momenta,and todeprlve tlieuiof the privilege of feasting on youi remains, might be coin «trued as cruelty to "auiiiials." The contemplation of myriads of worms satiating their ravenous hunger by eating the lifeless ganic structure, is not pleasant, hut lu view of the fnct that each person while life lasts ls engaged in the agreeable gastronomic duty of omslicatjng some animal that Has beeu cruelly slaughtered for that especial purpose, the equipoise of nature may possibly be buj tained by allowing hideous worms to ulake repast of your mortal remains. Really, the question with each ouo should not be, How shall I bo buried? but the difficult problem is. How can-the survivors most ually And expeditiously get rid of the disease-breeding and worthless physical organization that each one leaves behind when the spirit shall have taken its flight to the supernal realms? The rights of the Jiving should be respected In this matter us much, if not a great deal more, than the whims of one dying. The convenience ami health of the survivors should ho carefully considered in disposing of the d e a d h a t systj adopted moat conducive fo the publlj fare, regardless of the fishes of the contrary. Lyman C* flowed On last Sunday morning Mr. Howe delivered a very able address on "The Possibilities, Limitation and Philosophy of Prophecy," the main points of which are as follows; He critically analyzed the term; alluded to the constant tendency of the human mind to anticipate the future; referred to the grandeur of the heavens and the prophetic powers of the astronomer In fortelllng the movements of the celestial bodies; gave a glowing picture of a moving universe, aud the possibility of new laws being evolved by the intertill ng^ng of different worlds; portrayed the existence of law in every part of God's vast domain; exhibited the fallacy of any part of the universe being ont of, or away from, the parental care of God, for if such a place.there only could the atheist find his legitimate home; traced the renkjon of cause and effect, the cause carrying withjtself a prophecy of the effect, and portravednhat golden age of the world when the future could be predicted with unerring certainty. The lecture throughout was an admirable one oue of the beat we ever had the pleasure of hearing. At its close Mr. Howe alluded to the presence of n remarkable man. a genius, one of the finest orators on the rostrum, and then pointed out A. B. French, whose presence elicited cheers, aud he was called upon to make some remarks. He responded In his usual felteitons style, complimenting the lecture he had Just heard, and ulluding to his own efforts In first establishing the society; he then for ten minutes charmed every one present with his sparkling humor, pathos and brilliant sentiments. Hk peri merits which have been conducted by Dr. J. II. Long, chemist of tbe Chicago Medical College, throw considerable light on two very Interesting questions the condition of the air we breathe and that of the water we drink. It has been shown that the city breweries exercise a deleterious influence upon the atmosphere, buj their evil influence Is ten times exceeded by that of Bridgeport. The purest air in the city la on the North Side, and the air is at its best when the wind blown from the lake and immediately after thunder-storms. Dr. Long found that during the recent floods the drinking water contained a dangerous amount of organic matter. At that time there was a marked increase in the number of reported cases of winter cholera, diarrhea, and kindred* diseases. The experiments now In progress contemplate a comparison between the condition of tbe air and that of (he public health in various districts, and their result will be watched with Interest both by medical men and the general public.

Roberts stands as a falsifier and low, vicious /Hsturfref. JIe I hr cairns to get even with Air. Tice i f he has to kill him. Continuous readers of the J ournal will remember some resolutions passed by the Board of Directors of the New England Spiritualists Camp Meeting Association last August and published by request of the Board in the J ournal, and several other Spiritualist publications. Those resolution* were made necessary by the gross conduct of one Jonathan M. Roberts,editor and publisher of a low, vile and scurrilous sheet. The action of the Board was In the Interest of public morals "ohd for the general good of Spiritualism. In _piiter that our new renders may know the merits of the case we republish those resolutions, ns follows: Whereas, One Jonathan M. Roberts, the editor and publisher of a newspaper called Mind and Matter and published In Philadelphia, has during the past few days, while upon the grounds of the New England Spirit* uallsta Camp Meeting Association, grossly Insulted the President of the AaaoclalTojt, by shaking his fiat In His face and the us profane language; aud in another ens. suited Judge Patton, of Penney 1vanla, by loud and obscene language too vile for record or publication; and lu nllll another Instance attacking the editor of the RKunio-Pmi.ox d'hu Ai.JuritN AL.and in a public place.uulng obscene and profane language, such "Yol " ,Hetc,,* aud only. lng when the police laid Iibd Jh ou him, and all these outrages having been commuted upon the open streets of the camp aud iu the hearing of numerous ladies and gentlemen; thus not only bringing disgrace upon the cause of Spiritualism, but violating the rules of decent society and endangering tin* good name of this Association; therefore it is hereby Resolved, That we Instruct the police to arrest said Roberta promptly upon repetition of any such offense against any person, and expel him from the grounds of this Association. Resolved, That we exceedingly regret the necessity which compels us to take this step, and in order that it may be generally known that no such conduct will be tolerated upon the grounds of this Association, we hereby request that the proceedings of this meeting be published in the columns of the Spiritualist newspapers of the country ana of the Lake- Rteasant Siftings, aud In all other papers having an interest in promoting the welfare of society and the peace and good order of camp meetings iu general, and thnt a copy be furnished to Judge Patton aud Col. «I MI ini E HtMm M - Ai- ; : 1, I*I XM.-S4 I" rmymfm u Jt <4 ufcln* U. bui Daw do not r a t 1L Across the face of this letter was the following endorsement: " Take this loving letter and * *dfh it.j. At. Roberts.* After reading the above letter, which wai written to Mr. Church, and by him sent to Roberts with the best of motives, Col. Hopkins handed another to Roberta and asked if the endorsement aud signature were his. Roberts admitted they were, whereupon Col. Hopkins read tbe letter and endorsement as follows: uinnih,tn.,i)m., ills. Bundy respectively. T. W. Coburn, Clerk j»ro tem, written on your impudent forehead In lettere Roberts characterized these resolutions as of glittering breue. J..V. Soberti, a "tissue of vdindmus misrepresentations and positive falsehoods." He says in a three column article in bis paper of September 2nd 1882, after quoting the resolutions and commenting at length: Ui* publication 4 lb««out* defmwtort and llbtllou ywrobs and rrwijuih.hu ms» tln> rwull of a dviuwal* CunlaaltriMU and frwuudfmt ikttack upon wii fowl nun«and Roberta got the directors indicted by the Grand Jnry and the trial took place on tbe 2i*th and 30lh ull. From the language of Roberts It was expected that he would at least make such an attempt to sustain the prosecution as would render It uecessary.for the defendants to produce all the wruemea o be found who could subfltiniuate the truthfulness of th^allegations made lu the preamble and resolutions. Heuce parties were present from several SUtee, some of them having to travel a thousand miles. The temptatlon to enter into a description of the trial which was graphic and sensational, Is great, but we forbear, lu accordance with the well settled policy of the J ournal, not to devote unnecessary space to this man Roberts, who' for some Inscrutable reason has beeu permitted to pollute the^/huseof Spiritualism with his filthy venom. Suffice It to say that the evidence in support of tbe truth of the charges eel forth lu the preamble and resolution«was proven to the satisfaction of the jury by au overwhelming array of evidence. Roberta was proven to be a foulmouthed, obeeeue disturber;* part of the damaging evidence being his own admissions forced from him under the skillful cross examination of Col. Hopkins. Under oath he was asked: "Are you in the habit of using such language?" (Meaning obscene and profane.) "No," he replied. "Did you ever write anything of the kind?" "Never," was his reply. Never?" Inquired the lawyer. "Never!" asseverated Roberts in a manner meant to be moat Impressive; whereupon the lawyer drawing from his pocket &'couple of letters handed of them to Roberts, and calling his attention to an endorsement across Its face said r is that your writing?" Roberta admitted it was. Col. Hopkins then read to the jury the letter and endorsement, which were as folk ;; <T 'IL ' Pitie«L Ij UK VJ LI!*! * I* dltru'ubc f bini la II«fur Mm. «od PUAI» MMMgm s n M w ljhì.knim. tmtvtl *>j««i«fmmrtdèa winspiii i Hi g g f»««n<j Ih»* hftrnxiol'im lrri«.ritk.*j ( «w rute«t rrtifln u i la p ft.v.rilw t»pn*p«cttm i<» <ir«l {>«pw Jiu( il«rted 1 f " 1 -ii - -r: i - > : safse ^ j. a. souths.

The only person In the closely packed room, who secerned to be wholly oblivious to the diegraceful nature of the endorsement», was the man who had penned them, and now upon tbe witness stand bad confessed it. When the arguments were closed thejndge directed the Jury to assemble at lu o'clock at,, Tuesday, April 2nd, when ho would d liver his chargs. At the appointed time the case went to the Jury, and a verdict of.\ot iicilty! was most promptly returned. Thus ended tile case In a complete victory.for the N. E. S. Camp Meeting Amociation. Hereafter It will go without saying that the officers of the Association are Ju,tilled In taking such action In tbe Interests of their camp and of good order and public morals, aa shall in their judgment best accomplish the object, whether such action be in tbe nature of an order of arrest or of preamble and resolution». Bat how about Roberta, who stands before the country as a victoria, brutal libeller and fal-illy: who from week to week is beellmlng good men and women with hts filth'/ Caa the cause of Spiritualism afford to endure such a curse without protect? Is It not time that every reputable Spiritualist, however much his views may differ from 'those of others on questions relating to tbe phenomena of Spiritualism, should nose to give aid and comfort to suefi a"man as this Roberts has shown himself ' to be? Where Is the decent, reputable person who will have tbe temerity to lift up his voles In defence of this monster of fsoatlclim and OIRi? It Is hardly poasthlc to imagine a human being sunk so low as to be oblivious to ths disgraceful position In which the proeecub lng wltnees was placed by this trial; an Ignorant, brullab, unlettered savage would, it seems, have felt some sense of shame, and driven to bridle his tongue and reflect npqn his sitnallon.

Here Is this man Roberts threatening to murder a man whom he has willfully and persistently libelled: and for what? Merely because after long and patient efforts to get redress without recourse to law,he le finally driven to luvnko the nld of the courts to get justice. Justice being the last thing Roberts will give, he threatens to kill Mr. Tice for seeking it. What a noble representative of Spiritualism! How proud Spiritualist» should be of such a standard bearer who, not content with cruelly aud willfully misrepresenting and alms lng private cltlxens, loading them with the vlleet epithets In the language, must foraooth, threaten to kill.

Ishment In spiritual darkness, Roberts testified that he considered such letters aa that of Mr. Norton "gross Insults," and that he got such every day. The Judge before whom the case was tried slated, after the verdict, to one of the defendants, that the case ought never to have been brought, and that he had so said to the district attorney; meaning evidently that the bill of indictment against the directors shoulif not have been returned by tbe Grand Jnry. lu addition to disturbing the camp with his rowdyism, Roberta by bringings groundless suit, caused the directors several hundred dollars expense, which tbe Association is m oraliyud In honor bound to pay, saying nothing of tha eaperfee to tbe State.

This anecdote conies from Scotland: Two fishermen Jamie and Bandy belated and befogged on a rough watery pldatlon teat they should ' never get ashore again. At last Jamie said; "Sandy, I'm steering. and 1 think you d better put up a prayer." Saudy said; "1 don't know how," Jamie said: "If ye don't Pll just chuck ye c board.'* Bandy begun: "O Lord, 1 never ed any thing of Ye for fifteen year, and if Ye'll only get us safe bock I ll never trouble Ye again." " Whisht. Bandy." said Jamie, "the boat s touched shore; don't be beholden to any body." The f/atircamaji discourages the attempt to discipline the Rev. R. ilebcr Newton. While it doe* not mention him by name, it speaks of tbe attempt on the part of certain clergymen " to present one of their brethren for trial because he has displayed a certain lack of scholarship In some of his recent sermons, or because that lock hoe ted him into error." This is considered a very mild way of putting the ease, and It will very probably surprise that gentleman and his adherents to have it hinted that be. who claims to hav*expended much profound research and careful study his Biblical JuTeetigatiou*, should have displayed "a lack of scholarablp," Tbe Churchman regards ecclesiastical trials os productive of unwholesome sensationalism, and says that the religious journals which try to stir people up to engagfag in these trials are like tbe " men of an Inferior sort" who " urge on dogs or boys to fight." * A very ancient collection of writings is the Vedas, the oldest books in the Hindoo literature, and dating far back of the time of Christ.

There was a large audience, hut amongst tin** pnwut was a man who put Walker down as a fraud, HI* name was John Haunders, and he determined on investigating the matter for himself, During the latter part of the evening a favorably opportunity presented inelf. mid Mr. Sounders, instead of sitting quietly In his seat, grappled with a spirit which hod made Itself visible a few minutes before. The so-railed spirit turned out to he a very material one, and In fact no less a personage than the Spiritualist him*e f. He had thoroughly disguised himself, and by the judicious application uf phosphorus hi* clothing shone In the darkened room. In the tussle with Walker Mr. Hauuder» hands and feet were mi badly burned that it was found neee**>o*ry to remove him to the hospral. where after suffering terrible agony fie died the next day. t orouer Riddel held au inquest, and the jury returned a verdict of murder against the Spiritualist. The detectives for some reason or other l)«d not arrested him during the time hetwuen the occurrence and the conclusion of the-inqiiot. When they, did call to apprehend him they found he had 1 fled, and until a few days ago hu whereabout* lias been a mystery. "last week Coroner Riddel received a letter from a gentleman in Australia, who was iu ' Toronto at the time of the tragedy. His letter stated that Walker was In that country 1 where he was making money with hi* old i trick*.,'the wriier asked If Walker could not still be held responsible for Saunders death. Dr. Riddel lias forwarded a copy of the evideuce to Australia, And al*> other informatiou concerning Walker. Whether the spiritualist 1* amenable to the law on the charge of murder or not lias beeil referred to Mr.! Fell too. This Walker U nut a Spiritualist, end never was.

The professor has found that the colored race whom we have been told for half a century weald die out If not for the fostering care of the whites, now that they are left to theiu«elvtw>f4wrea«e out of all proportion. While the white«increase at the rate of twenty per cent, in ten years, the black«increase thirty-five cent. At these rates of Increase the white population doubles Itself every ttilriy-fivo years, and the black every twenty year>j. Applying these figures It Is found that in there will be i&.ono.non black«and 2IO.OOI1.QOO whites In the t'rules States. As this vast preponderance of the black«will he In the South, the gravest political complications will arise. The negro element Is one which does not, nor cannot assiaiilnte, says Gilliam. Whatever may he said by way of sentiment, of the equality of races, the fact remains that the white element will not deceive the black on terms of equality. The negro Is as distinct a factor as the Chinese, and cannot become au American In the broid sense of the word. Hence, when Increased to such vast numbers an 1 enabled to overbear by his vote, there is no question of the complications and antagonisms which will arise. This certainly Is an alarming picture; we have not mvtg-a negro in the national wo ul- pile, we are. tom *e 192,0)3,00) of them!

Rev. Wm. Hiller gave a lecture In Ctevo- taul to a targe audience, detailing his twenty year«experience as amissionary In Zululnnd. His account of the Zulus Is interesting. lie says there are m thieves there. Dr. Livingstone left a quantity of valuable goods In one of their villages on tin* Zambezi for «even year«, and when ho returned for them he found every thing as he left it. Th«re nre among these «Imple people no * safeguards against) thieves, as locks and burglar alarms. Kef. Hiller say«: "A thief would be killed. Ilo cannot be put in prl«on to b» pardoned by a benevolent Governor, There Is no profanity there bo- cause the negroes do pot know how to swear. There Is no immorality. Street walkers would be put to death or driven out of the country. *I never saw a drunken man there, unless he had been given some of the white nan*«whisky." Vet ho urgently advocates sending missionaries among them, and begs for money to carry forward that enterprise. Moral as they are they know nothing about (iod, or Jesus, and he «ays are "absolutely without religious belief. In which he makes an absurd mistake. \ t What good can missionaries do such a people? They would teach them.to swear. He, cheat. steal, drink and nameless immorality. But the poor Zulus shock the modesty of Hr. Hiller by their simplicity of dress, which consists of HUle more than a fig leaf and a necklace. He stayed there twenty years and was shocked every day aqd all times of day. The children In that hot climate do not even always wear the-fig loaf. Must shocking! Hr. Hiller wants them Christianized,so they.w ill wear hats, and bonnets, and pantaloon» and gowns. If they wonlil do so there would be a broad field, opeoud for Yankee trade! The Zulus now want nothing of us.

But tlie fact of "snake charming" was obtruded up ui the reverend gentleman In such an unmistakable way that he could not help acknowledging U ns a fact, frhlch on request he tol l as follows to the reporter in Mrs, Van Calcar*«monthly. Wo now give this»«port In a literal translation: "On a certain day u snake charmer'came to his house, who tpld him 'you have a stranger In your house? By this expression n snake was Indicated, hut this word is not used by the charmers. It Is indeeda general popular belief, that every house has a snake which watches It a* a house ghost' or home demon, The stranger,* continued the charmer. 'is a poisonous, Injurious one, which does not belong here. The charmer was answered that there was no business for him there, and was «ont away. But the next day he catted again with the same notice, There 1«a stranger In your house? He received the same answer, and this was repelled five days In succession. At last the wife of the reverend gentleman made the remark, that Go I perhaps may use this man in order to save them from some great danger. "ltpon this the charmer was allowed to do his work, lie at once requested that the lady should retire aud thereupon he undressed himself completely naked. In order to prove that there could be no fraud In the juatter. He then took a bowl with water, with which he mixed hi«spittle, aud sprinkled with this all the corner«of the house. Then with a little wand he struck the walls of the dwelling room. Nothing was discovered there. Thereupon the striking of the walls w&j repeated in a side charmer»aid the snake ws od the missionary to stand denly a tremendous snake j. out of the celling and/the chan were, welcomed it by UHlng It all friendly word«, to wlrfch followed Intelligible inulterlig. stepped toward«the snake, torfirft by the neck and pulled it out of the ceiling, which as In the rest of the rc«idence, con isted of reed covered with loam, a bind of celling which serves a brooding place to the snakes, scorpions - -d Insect«of which Egypt 1«an prolific. While he was holding the snake by the neck he spat upon It«head, and then cast It violently to the feet of Mr. Splliennar, where it lay mo'loaiess. The monster was a meter long. "But the ta«k of the charmer was not yet at an end. «Title 1» a male? no said,'there- fore a female must yet be skulking? The second snake was discovered In the snme way and captured and cast upon the floor at the side of the first. And here a remarkable coincidence appeared. The female snake was nor entirely unconscious, but began to wriggle, whereupon the charmer ran toward«her and spat again upon her bead and back which brought on complete rigor. "The charmer then dressed himself again, put the two snake«into a bag and left after having received a small reward. It could be seen that the female *&{ike had a big knot of eggs In her belly, niluf which would have -» -. \o life. From what danger the honest missionary and icrefore were hi» wife saved?* It may be questioned how the charmer came to know that snake» were brooding In that house, and by which Influence did he subdue these dangerous animals? Some may suggest that a few days previously two snakes had been seen by the Fellah«in the village and perhaps in the neighborhood of the missionary*«dwelling, and that the charmer may have»pled their traces by certain sign». In all this we could not discover anything mysteriou*, hut nevertheless we stop at some unsolrable point«which baffle any natural explanation. The striking the liali«with a little stick had the unmtstek- able end to wake the snakes from their sleep, which hastened to pat out their heads in order to spy whether there was any near danger. The kind words directed to the dangerous guests may have had the same effect upon the snakes a«the soft sound of a loving address tuay exert upon a dog or a ler-jjiprse. or even a lion or a tiger.? The muttering has certainly been nothing else than the reciting of some Incantation, formulas or sentence«, which have been found in use with all nations, among which as Grimm ha«it fa his German Mythology the Germans were not the last. As to those Incantation«In themselves no power can be ascribed; the question arise», whether the monotonous muttering may not have had an effect upon the animal, and then whether lot by this some Interual ecstasy may be *au«ed In the charmer, mastering his faith and will, of which the combined action upon the animated world and matter Is hard to define^ We cannot here expatiate any him by spitting upon bis eyes. It required some effort to persuade the Emperor to do this, But before the eyes of the people surrounding hi«seat, the blind man*s vision was restored to lilm by the Emperor's spitting at him. (lice Luetonlu«In Vespas. ML, and Tacitus llistor, book IV., 81.) Denon, the celebrated member of the Commission of Scientists which In 1703 accompanied the French Expedition to Egypt, was offered by the "Grand Master" of the *T»ylH" to initiate him into their Order, but he shrank from accepting tho offer because a part of the solemnity was that the Grand Master had to spit into the mouth of the novice. Denon relates that one day "Psylli" were brought before Hlie General Bonaparte. He wished to pul them to the test, "Caq you know," the General asked them, "wheth-r lin*re ate any snake» Iu this palace, and If there are. are you able to force them to com«out of their hiding nlace?" To both q Hon» they answered In the affirmative.... a proof was demanded, they went through the rooms, and after a few moment«declared that there was one snake present. They renewed their Investigation to find out It» hiding place, and got Into convulsions a» they passed a huge pitcher or vase In Hie corner of one of the chambers of the palace, and Indicated this as the place where the aulinal was hidden, and it was indeed found icra. (flee Denon Travels Iri Egypt, vol. I, 230, of the translation of Bosscha.) Ami wliat was the Impression this event made? "Tills was," says Denon, "a* porfeet higgler's trick! We looked at each other And ladjto confess they were very smart." -Since that happened, lu the "Age of Rea- ion?* whose crowning work wa«the delflca- lon of a beautiful harlot, nearly a hundred rears have elapsed, but the position of so- alled "Science toward«fact«which do not exactly fit her Infallible last, has not materially changed, as 1» demonstrated by the stubborn ignorance and condemnation which the gross of the "scientific" people oppose to the proven phenomena of Spiritualism. Tlie discovery and mastering of poisonous reptiles seem«to be the principal knowledge and art of the "Psylli" of Egypt, and this art 1«practiced now as It was thousands of years ago The ancient Greeks and Romans make frequent mention of it and refer Its Jrlgln to a people who were overwhelmed In primitive age«. If it be true that the "Psyl- 1 existed already at the time of Moses, are may assume with Strabo and Eu«ebius that this sect reached as far back a«the worship of tho god Kouphls at Klephanta, who was called the architect of the world; till«the Egyptologist«may decide! A» to our opinion, we cannot believe, that a spiritual sect, which was based on supernatural or secret natural force», should have maintained Itself through thousand of years by mere fraud, and least, of all, under so vastly different government» and civilization«a«those of the Uyksos.the Persians, the Romans and the Arabs, Du, G.

Is, In several respect», remark n r i aiiuuv npfo eiphiinu* any more upon Fie Influence of voice. The most remarkable in this case seem«to be the anion of the spittle, perhaps the noblest fluid of the human organism. The ancients believed that the Pay HI could heal the wounds from venomous snake bites by sacking them and *"1ng them with their spittle. (See Salma»- PUnlanw'KxeroetaUoaes la Salt vatu? , a 24A.) When Vejpuianu*, soon after hisbwng proclaimed Emperor, v u In Egypt, a man blind on both eyes, appeared before his seat, who had been commanded by the fod Seraph to beg from the Emperor to heal the sun) tho sun'«angular diameter is ouiy :tt minutes and Id seconds of arc; this being within about M spe-qid» of the smallest size tin' huh ever appear» during the year. t%n the contrary, the moon, while passing between us anduhe sun, and creating the eclipse, happens to be wlttiln about one day of her perigee (the nearest point to the earth) and her angular size Is 33 minute«and Id second«, or within one second of It«greatest; and she thus covers the sun with a complete eclipse, much longer than 1«common.. The average tlmu of totality In the solar eclipse», la not more than two miqute«, but lu this case, owing to the favoring circumstances Inst named, the time of total obscuration will be unusually long. The conical shadow of the moon will travel darkly and ominously across the Southern Pacific Ocean, like a dying spirit of evil, and the total darkness will continue at all point«on the central line, for nearly dminute». The shadow will fly about six thousand mile«in three hours and seven minutes; that 1«about 32 miles a minute,aud the diameterof the,more or less, eliptlcal section of It, measured from north to south, as It speeds over the surfact of the ocean, will not vary much from ] U mite«. Those persons who have witnessed total eclipse«, speak of the swift approach, pa» sage and retreat of this great stalking shad ow, *extending from the earth to the- moon, as jrery impressive. In this Instance the full shadow will strike the earth at sunrise about 800 miles eastward of Sydney* Anstralia. lu latitude about 35»oath, thence flying at an angle aomafso* north of east aiirt curving somewhat te the right, It will lu about one and a halfmodr«, pass by the Marqqesa«Island«and, soon after, reaching IpCliudt about 5 south will commence curving south ward. It will finally depart from tbe earth at sunset in latitude about 13 south and fioi> miles from the Coast of Peru tn South America. Thu* those who observe the eclipse in the earlier part of Itspaosage will mark the approach of the column of darkness from a point south of west, and, If Imaginatively fncliued, will doubtless feel the impressive- pea* above mentioned: The darkness palpa b y limited at first to a comparatively smalt portion of the horizon and rising swiftly, towards the zenith, devouring the sun-the ominous chill and hurl of hit living th in g i- tis said oven the winds die away. An»wful pnuh*. prupbeuc of her end,1 A few minutes, however, of breathtle«i suspense, during which the astronomer reaps his harvest, and the awful shadowy form, has flown over and h> in retreat as swift as its approach. Unce, tt«wing was that of a dark bird of ill omeo. ow, thank* to the all penetrating eye of science, we know It is but the harmless shadow of our own intimately attendant moon, ever reaching ont from her on the side opposite tbe sun, and' once In a while glancing like the shade of a hanuta»«cloud, across the bosom of her earthly mother and queen. Thus does science ever drive back into their caves the votaries of error aud supcr«tltlon, "Ho mote it be" always in every field-.of human thought and human Interest. Aside from sentimentality, what of the this notable eegpse? Unfortunately the shadow path, or relgoo of totality Is wholly om the Southern Ocean as abore *described. We In the Uxiited States will see nothing of U- Eastern Australia, New Zealand, Bouth- Mexico, Central America, New Granada, Kuuador and Peru will witness only a partial eclipse. Unfortunately again, along and near the track of tbe full darkness or umbra, even the Islands are few*and small, -'fliero being fonnd only two coral reefs named FHut Island and Caroline Island, to accommodate the astronomers. To the latter of these (not tho Caroline Islands, N. E. of New Guinea) ait expedition Is about to be sent from the V. S. by co-operation of Government, the National Academy of Kclences, of the Naval Observatory and of the coast survey. The Island, or collection of small reefy Islands, contained in 1871 about thirty native inhabitants and one stray Englishman, so far as known It has not been visited since. The party is to consist of Prof. Holden of the Washburn Observatory, Madison, Wisconsin; of Prof. Hasting«of the John Hopkins University; of Prof. Pierce of the Coast Survey; of Lieut.

What is the use of bclifving in any forn. of religion that Is founded upon supposition? Is it not enough to endorse that portion of our established faith which is founded in reason anil supported by adequate evidence? Why should we consutfi^lhe chaff with the wheat? tan we not bo Uajghtto distinguish between truth ami error,>tght and wrong, without having to pa** through a most trying school of graduation* In belief. We have been obliged to accept a thousand false doctrines, and yield to the insensate twaddle of whlnndral potentate* of new ideas, and what ha* been the result? Simply contention, confusion* contradiction and reaction of the popular mind. Spiritualism Is no more perfect or sacred than the old forma of religion. It has only one distinguishing feature not manifest in the common sentiment of the church, and that Is it* asserted recognition of the presence of the so-called dead, aud their near relation to and possible communion with us. ft cannot be said that Spiritualism la a doctrine of recent^orlgin. It Is as old os humanity Itself. U has ever been recognized a* au Integral part of the religion of all nations. The Bible contains a sufficiency of this vital element, but the Christian world j has neglected to respect U. The spirit remains In the book, but I* not practical in the faith. A popular conservatism of ideas confront* and seclude«the truth. Arp we not likely os Spiritualist*, to event* ually fall Into the same morbid state of Indifference to the question of fact* and evidence, through the force of transcendent habit. Is not our simple faith or knowledge of thd nearness and conscious influence of tho departed, likely to be supplanted by stern mod unbending autocracy of opinio sentiment and social anion? As a clam of believers, Spiritualists are divided, They, re not at variance on the subject of spiritual Intercourse, but on collateral Ueues. It is only where poshive knowledge Is wanting that men differ. Where Questions are to be guessed *t, we are all selfish enough to satisfy ourselves with some superficial not ion-of This is all wrong in the light of true principle* of logic. Why should we Mlev«before we know? It is a matter of doubt hether Spiritualism Is a form of religion, whether it will bear to be characterized by the meaning attached to that word. In «l.

Two huge wbaden crosses, weigh* Ing 230 pound* each, were placed on the ehouldersof two of the self-torturers. Tht sharp edge* cut Into the naked flesh, caused the blood to *pnrt out and drop to the ground.

Issuing from the house the procession re-formed and turned to their house of worship, and so the horrifying exercises continued, one band of pent Leu tea succeeding another until night, when a grand procession and chant wound np the exercises for the day. During these marches to and from the bonne of refuge the seen«at times waa too sickening for description.

Mary K. Bowen, testified before the Inventlgatiug Committee 1 hat she could not eat tho food furnished, but lived upon that bought with money furnished her; thirty more women were bathed In the same water; many of them had had skin diseases, and many were infested with vermin; when there was time carbolic acid was poured on the heads of such patients; vermin were all over the place, rats being so abundant that patients would call the nurses to drive them away; one consumptive woman was utiaute to call for help, and her feet.wefc badly bitten; this linppened every night until she died; the closets and everything were filthy, hut ifhen visitors were expected things were cleaned; one woman who died was lar}«, aud her body was crowded Into the box by men standing on It; she hod on the same bonnet worn when alive; another patient occupied the bed on which this woman died that night, no change olclothtng being made; an old Insane woman was beaten with sticks and tied with ropes. In the course of the examination Gov. Butler said that the investigation would interest the whole eonntry where there were Institutions like the Tewksbury.and ought to go before it. Already it had aroused exam-, liutlons in other States, fie had never had a political thought in connection with it. The only questions to be decided were law, propriety and humanity.

After this, Mr. Colby having had his wounds-droused, again lectured In the»ame hall and reiterated the statement that had Maggie Shield* had proper'medical treatment she would now he alive. The fighting pill-vender further satiated his vengeance by publishing a libellous article on Colby, nearly equal In It* spirit and language lo the effusion» of J. M. Robert*, which Is saying much. Mullen was Arrested, charged with assault and buttery, plead guilty anil was fined the ridiculously»limit sum of one dollar. If Hit» Mr. Colby is George P. Colliy, he, i* known nt ibis office nml by thousand* in the Northwest as a most estimable young man, quiet, iinobtruilve,conscientious to the hist degree, and tho last pereon who»liould be made the victim of a brutal assault. Wo trust the Spiritualist* and all lovers of fair play in Michigan City will see that Mr, Colby lias Justice done him, ami that reparation is In»orne way mode for the disgraceful acts of Mullen the mauler. It goes without sayílig that If Mullen was slandered by Colby he should hare redro»», but na he I* an educated man and an officer of the government, holding the position of County Coroner, It III becomes him lo set such an example, and Ills unseemly conduct will not add to hi* fdniidiug asa citizen, nor increase hi* professional reputation. The experience of Mr. Colby suggest», however, the extreme necessity of great n a tion in uttering tuesenge* from»pirit* where the Interest* of the living are Involved. In this Instance it Is probably almost Impossible tomibstnntiale the allegation of Hie spirit, even If trae, Mullen charges that Colby was the toot of Ignorant and designing people, and while Mullen * conduct in the cane is not such as to entitle him to respect nor fits word to implicit acceptance, still it i» barely possible that Colby apd his spirit control rnay have been uuriuirtloujdy infiuenced by rumor* afloat. Similar Instance* are not at all uncommon. A few year* ago, a number of mediums in different part* of the Dr. D. P. Robbins, ftn officer of the Aneienl Order of Workmen, of Krle. Pa., recently published a long letter renouncing hi* former belief In the Christian religion. The Andefit Order propose to bring him to trial for violating the constitution, which require*of every member a belief In God. The lodge met lately for Investigation.and Dr, Robbins reiterated hi* disbelief. He contended that the eon* stitunonstop* not lay down what particular God he shathworshlp, and therefore be is not amenable to (n^dpltne. The proceedings have been transmitted to tha Supreme Lodge for instruction*. x Light of LcmdonVrays: "The absolute demonstration of the ^deuce of spirit which Spiritualism affords 1*. without doubt, tho greatrst fact the present century has produced and tt is also equally certain that Spiritual 1st*, as depositories of tfiat knowledge have certain responsibilities and duties Imposed upon them with regard to the dls- y semination of what has proved so great a boon and blessing to themselves. It appears to us that the practical value of Hplritualisni Is solely to be measured by,its influence on daily life and thought, and only so far as It induces men'to tarn their eyes fcoin self, and fires their hearts with a desire to do good lo their fellows, can its worth be estimated. This practical standard of vain«is the only one we care to insist upon, and we would earnestly desiderate I to personal application. Were this done there would be no need to nrge the claims of this worker or that agency ip the sympathy and support of Splritualisis, for those whom Spiritualism had brought out of the depths of doubt and unrest would hasten to nphold any endeavor to disseminate knowledge of Its facto. f g TheHapreme Court of Iowa on last Satur day, confirmed the decision of the lower court that the Prohibition amendment to the Constitution is void. «

Itecent circumstance«have directed attention to certain reimirkahludcliisiou«of w hich females of unstable no hour equilibrium are subject, either through liyaterlft or through similar disorders of the nervous system, Charcot and HournevilJe give instances of The world tha extraordinary self lieceptious that are frequent among hysterical patient*. Dr. Le- gruude da Suulle, physician of th«halpetrlere, Paris, descrllwh in hi* Htnndard work, "Les Hysterfqties. some remarkable rases of hallucination, where females labored under the belief that they have been «truck or stabbed by other«, even after having inflicted blows or wound» upon themselves, lu one instahre a young woman was found by her hu*hniid lying on the floor of her room In a fainting fit, her fac«covered with blood. On reviving her from her swoon she stated she had been attacked by Armed men; the Paris newspapers related the case, and within three weeks three similar cases occurred In the French metropolis. All these case» proved D be fabricated by the supposed victims. ) young girl wounded herself «lightly with i pistol. She gave Hie notice authorities tin mo«l minute detail» about an Imaginary a«wisin, who, according to her account, fired the weapon, but she was found to be highly hysterical, and it was proved that she bad willfully wounded herself. In a third case In Dr. du Saulle s-experience, a young woman was found in a railway carriage, slabbed In the left side. The iucldeut caused great excitement, hut it was proved contrary to her assertion«, that ahe had inflicted the wound herself, and wa«'a hysterical subject, A housenuiid was found lying behind a d<*or, bound, gagged and covered with bruises. She stated that she had been brutally attacked by two burglars with blackened fare*, but she was a-highly hysterical woman, ami there appear«to have been strong evidence that she bad contrived to tie her own hands and to gag and bruise herself. Perhaps the fitraugest case of all occurred in M. Tardien'a practice. A young lady living atcourbevole wished to make herself an object of public Interest-by passing a ss victim of a political conspiracy which «lie pretended to have discovered. Due night she was found In a state of greatest mental perturhitloa at the door of her apartment. She could not talk, but stated in wrltiiigttiat she had been attacked outside her house ny a man, who had attempted te gar rate her, at the time striking her twice with a dogger. Only the lady s clothing was injured, and the bodv vf her dress and her corset were found to ho cut through, but at different levels. She tried to make put that the attempt at strangulation had caused dumbness. M. Tardieu remarked lit her hearing that this Infirmity rapidly disappeared when produced Under circumstances of this kind. She soon managed to regain her speech, and in»short lime admit «ted that (he whole narrative had been developed out of her inner consciousness. Eccentricity lu relativee Is ever strong presumption of self-deception when a female makes any statement or charges of til-treatment of any kind. The constant fear of ansaseiaa-* Uon, especially if based on reasonable grounds, Is particularly liable to predispose' nervqua'or excitable subjects to extraordinary delusions of this kind.
