Mesmerism and the Moou.
EXPEDIENCE OK A I..UY. I
The Indy said tli.it four minutes
was required to make a journey to
the moon, on account of the diflicul
tv of sundering the tie that binds
a" person to the physical condition.
When the four minutes had elapsed,
even to a second, she said she was
there. This is another peculiar facul
ty of persons in the mesmeric condi
tion, that they know at all times what
time it is, can tell exactly to a min
ute. The first thin? thc mentioned was
the freedom and ease of breathing the
moon's atmosphere. The mountains
she described as being from seven to
ten miles in height. The inhabitants
are of two kinds. Those who inhab
it the elevated parts of the moon arc
very low in stature, being about two
or three feet high, of a brown color,
and very uiiintellectuul in their na
ture. They live on the leaves of
trees, and have small huts, into which
they creep, to defend themselves from
the" inclemency of the weather.
Those inhabiting the plains and val
leys are of a higher character in in
tellectual attainment, as well as lar
ger stature. They have good houses,
and something of symmetry in their
construction :so towns and streets.
In the moon there are valleys, rivers,
lakes, forests, The trees are of
an immense height, with a very pe
culiar leaves. Animals were descri
bed, one species having three horns!
The weather is very variable tue
changes great and sudden.
The moon is inhabited by beings of
a low order of felicity. Besides the
physicial beings of whom mentioned
has been made, there are thousands'
and millions of spirits i:i the Moon,
as in all the heavenly bodies and o:ir
earth. These spirits are an inferior
kind; and the moon is the residence
for those who are of the lowest or
der when living on this earth. The
Pythagorean doctrine of nttcmpsyck'
sis seemed to be very similar to the
situation, as described, of the spirits,
cs they progress from one stage to
another. The powr of ranging is
increased with the mental and moral
Dr. CoHyer remarked, that an im
pression once made ; n the mind
would endure forever; and a person
in tb.o magnetic condition, or a spirit
can recall every action of their lives,
or every impression they have ever
received. The reward of the just
made perfect, is to contemplate, with
self-complacency, whatever is beauti
ful and good in themselves. The
punishment of the wicked is to re
flect on their bad actions, and those
scenes the' had pased through, which
cast disgrace on their nature.

The appearance of Sirius was identi
cal with our sun; and all the fixed
stars, being ceDtres of system?, are
inhabited by being of supreme felicity-
Mercury and er.us are inhabited
by spirits only, but they are not of
so great felicity as thos? inhabiting
Mars, atid the otiier planets more
distant fro-.n the sun, are inhabited by
physical beings as well as by spirits.

size, about 40 feet high! Dr. Collver
asked the lady to speak to one of
them. She said "Man how do you

his ear? Notwithsland their great

a few days since. Willi them came an
express to Mr.St. Wain, one of the
partners, now in this rity. the let
ters to Mr. Wain were mailed by
the express, on reaching Indepen
dence, and at this writing have not
been received. From the tenor of u
note written by the bearer of the de
spaches and forwarded by a boat,
we learn the following particulars:
Mr. Charles Bent was at Taos,
and for romc cause, which is not ex
plained, he and ;:'l the Americans at
Taos were arrested by the Mexicans,
and sent to Santa Fe. Orders had
also been issued, calling in all the
Mexicans in the employ of Messrs.
Bent and St. Vrain, several of whom
were employed in and about the Fort,
and in hunting excursions.
It appears from the note we lure
alluded to, that an express had
reached there in three days, distance
about 200 miles, and the express to
Mr. St. Wain, left the Fort three
days after Mr. Upton's party left,
overtook nnd came in with that par-
tv. From the faithless character of
the Mexican in that quarter, now,
doubtless stimulated by their recent
success over he Texian expedition,!
it is more than probable that the
Messrs. Dent and St. Wain will have
to teach them a lesson to keep them
in their proper place.

Washington City, May 25, 18-12.
Gentlemen: In addressing you up
on this important subject the culture
of Hemp and Water-Rotting for the U.
States Navy and its commercial enter
prise I am prompted by mqtfvcs which
must demand your attention and serious
approbation. I am about to throw my
self amongst you, to become a citizen,
and to give you the advuntages of the
capacity, spirit of enterprise, energy,
and perseverance which prompts me
forward to the ultimate attainment of the
patriotic object I have in view viz: the
supplying of the Navy as well as the j
commercial enteprisc with Water-rotted
Hemp of American culture.
To effect this object, I have bent the
whole force of my mind towards your
State, and as the course pursued by me
shall be dictated by the highest sense of
integrity, I flatter mssclf that in time I
shall have the utmost confidence and ap-
probation of you all, as one who is cal
culated to promote the interest of your
State, as well as to demand your prompt
co-operation. To effect this object is to
begin right, and we will continue and
end right. Let all your preparations be
permanently made so as not to last a
day but years.
There are 12,000 Tons of Hemp re
quired yearly. Therefore, a market is
always open for you, and you have the
land adapted for its culture, and also the
climate; and the higher the latitude, the
more congenial to its culture. The sta
ple is superior and yields heavier, and
j as there is sufficient room between you
'and the Rocky Mountains, press for-
ward. Five acres of land sowed down
in Hemp and Water-rotted, will pro
duce $-100, if properly rotted and well
handled; and I trust that every gentleman
who undertakes this business w ill adopt
such methods in the preparation of clean
ing and handling, as will set an example
to the present and to a future generation,
so that our article may not only com
mand the heighest price at he me but like
Samples of Russian Hemp w ill be dis-

ger than the Russian; all that it requires
is to be well handled tu n:uke it superi
or. Therefore, you have even- encour
agement to prosecute this business with
diligence, and to watcr-rott your crops.
In doing this, you w ill tend to enhance
vour own interest, and advance the ob
ject I have in view the prospcritv of

reasons given in the debate in the
House, and familiar to the general
Mr. Crittenden replied in a short
a. u mgemous speecn. He contend
cd that the House, ns it was, was too1
numerous to act in a compact and
convenient manner, and too few to
represent the masses. Mr. Critten
den said thnt the legislative power
was not too large but that the Execu

; Representatives in all its excesses,

Mr. Linn thought the power of.
the present Executive was not such.
If he had any power in the Senate,

REPORTS FROM COMMITEES:
The balance of the Standing Com.
mittees not called upon yesterday,
for reports, were called upon this,
morning. The following were the'
only b I s re 101 ted:
From the Committee oh Territories,
for establishing the boundary be
tween Missi u'i and Iowa.
Also, a bill for completing the Peni
tential y in Iowa.
A report was made from a select
commit ire, by Mr. Hall, of Vermont,'
npoii the subject of the Commercial
Bank f Boton. A citizen of Bos-
I li t), in a ii'cmoi nil to l ongres, stated
I that this b;.nk, by collusion with the
Goteinm? nt rgents. has cheated the
Government of the Lnited States out
of one hi. mired and fifty thousand
ilollais. Tl:v fr;.i:d id lege d was by
I lacing a higher tulue upon property

Mr. Hi ll accompanied his report
with a resolution that the fiauds
should be invt st'gnted upon the spot.
It was objected to by several of
the members, and the yeas and
r:a s c.-e :derrd upon a motion to
siispr r.d the rule.".
Two thirds were r.rccssary to sns-
end, ; i.d the ndfs wee suspended
by a vote ol 123 to 43.
Theicot was brought forward
and I oe:.me Me ewry other subject,
a matter of immediate debate, in
which several members took part.
One of tl.e questii ns in controversy
was, whether the comn i.tee should
go t Boston to investigate these
fraud, as ;:s dt cbmd to be neces
sary, or whether they should carry
on the investigation here.
?lr. Saundis, of X. C. moved at
amendment to the resolutii n, the pur
poit of which was, that the commit
tee having charge of the subject,
honI.! iirsne the sxbject hcie.
Mr. Adams spoke at considerable
length, and favored the investigation
upon the spot. He contended that
it would cot less for the committee to
go to Boton, than it would 10 bring
persons and pap rs here. The sub
ject had long been before Congress,
nnd several years ago, when the
House were less disposed to investi
gate frauds than they were now, Mr.
Bond, of Ohi , had reported in favor
of doing what was contemplated bv
