JZMqr Rutland OMe: Several commtl
location liave rcceutly nppearej In your
paper in regard to the " wonderful man!
festatlotn" witnessed by those vvholiave
viItrxl the " Eddy family," residing some
few miles cast of Rutland. I never had
any belief in spiritualism ; yet It must lie
conceded that the believers arc quite mini
erotis In this and other countries, nud cm-
brace some learned nnd able men. Alisurd,
as I believe modern spiritualism to be, I
have no disposition to abuse or ridicule any
one who accepts Its doctrines ns true ami
genuine, acUnovv lodging Uielr right of
opinion or belief as good as ray own. But
Inasmuch an tlio Eddy family nre so largely
visited, and drawing so much attention,
and believing as I do that many arc. being
led Into error nnd delusion by their do-
monstratlons, I ask a little space to give
my own views on thesubject of spiritualism,
hoping I may be followed by others more
capable than myself.
I have never visited the Eddy family. I
have no acquaintance with them, or any
one of them, to my know ledge. That their
"manifestations aro wonderful," Is very
likely nnd that they cannot be explained or
accounted for by thoso who havo witnessed
them U quite probable ; but it does not fol
low from this that they arc spirit manifes
tations. What is known ns spiritualism
seems to be understood as of recent origin,
and to have had Us beginning with the
"Fov family "alioiit 18(8. The history of
the. Vox lamlly nnd the mysterious " rap
ping " In that connection fully appeared
in the newspapers at the time and need not
lie reicnted here. Spiritualists do not, as
I understand, concede thai from thence
spiritualism took its rle, but claim that
disembodied spirits have for nil time held
communication with the living. But I
understand that the "rapping"" rom
menced with the Foxes, and I understand,
too, that the organization of spiritualists,
If organization there Is, was had after the
time of the Fox demonstration ; at least I
shall be sustained when I say that before
the day of the Foxes there were no persons
known as spiritualists In this country,
though I shall not deny that there w ere
those before that time who believed that
the spirits of the departed held communi
cation w 1th the living. Svvcdcnbourg lived
before that time, nnd if I mistake not
Andtew Jackson Davis wrote before then,
but nf this I am not positive. But 1 believe
there were manifestations two hundred
years ago and more, and I believe, too. that
they were produced by the same causes
that the so-called spirit manifestations are
now pi odueed purely from natural rause3.
Anyone who has read tho history of what
was called "the Salem Witchcraft" well
knows that the manifestations were no less
strange or wnuderltil than the manifesta
tions of modern spiritualism. Some hun
dred years or moic after the day of hanging
witches, mesmerism, ns it was called, had
its rise, and for many years astonished the
world with Its wonders. After mesmerism
subsided then came spiritualism.
Spiritualists deny that there is any siinl
Inrity in spiritualism to mesmerism and the
witchcraft of olden time. True, theieliave
!)cen different phases in manifestations, but
the wonderful phenomena has been pro
duced by the same causes, by forces exist
lug In nature, and not by the spirits or su.
pernatural agencies. Without intending
any offence to the large number of adherents
of spiritualism in this country, many of
whom hold positions In society ns good as
the bod, I must express It ns my opinion
that spiritualism is but n ictinemcnt of
those other erroiu named.
Sufficient space for n full nnd thorough
discussion of this subject lu a newspaper
can hardly lie nllovved. I must then cou
deuce us much as possible, and will pro
ceed to inquire ;
1. Ale the "woudcitul manifestations"
reported, a reality 't
3. If so, can they be account's! for from
natural causes ':
0. If they cannot be accounted for or ex
plained, docs it follow that these manl.es.
tatlons come from n spirit agency ?
That there has been more or less decep
tion practiced by mediums, psycologlsts,
clairvoyants and witches, I do not doubt,
but I am disposed to admit the faelH with
tills qualification ; Persons who have at
tended such exhibitions are often so wiought
upon that their imaginations produce the
facts ; they sec and hear what ouo present
In his right mind would not see aud hear.
But manifestations too well authenticated
to admit of a doubt have been wituesaed
which to one Incapable of understanding
the caue would Indeed appear to him won
derful and mysterious, and Inexplicable.
perhaps on any other than the spirit theory.
I know well that a large majority of dls
believers In spiritualism deny the facts;
that Is, they deny that unppings, movlug
of tables, chairs and other objects, the
ringing of Ik IIs, playing ummi musical in
atliimcns, and the thousand aud one sights,
sounds and antics without visible cause,
are not In fact produced. But 1 believe
they are, though not always to the extent
icpoilcd. Sometimes deception is used,
and nt other times Imagination creates the
facts, I have, myself, within the last
fifteen years liecn present nt several circles
and have no occasion lo doubt the fact of
manifestations, ye! I believe 1 nm as far
lemovrd from a Iiellcf that they were pro
duns! by spirits out of the body as any ono
can be ; so far removed that I believe them
Is not n shadow of evidence to suppoit tho
spirit theory, nnd that the whole, thing is
senseless and absurd.
Substantially admitting the fads, then,
ii9 1 do,-can they bo ncconntisl for 1 Ik".
llevo they can yet It may Iio dtlllcult for
ono not versed in certain sclent es to give
such explanations as would Is satisfactory
to others. I was once present when a man
lu a fit of delirium saw suakes and other
liideotiB reptiles, none of which were visible
to nny other pne pre-ent. Now, it vv-ould
require a man of science to give a lull ex
planatton of tlis, I knew as well as the
m,an of science that pol-oned, liquor was

prepared his mental vision for such horrible
sights could doubtless be better given by n
man well versed In medical science. The
mahy phases of Insanity me n wonder,
even to the scientific wmld. Every Intel
llgent person, however, welt understands
that lnanlty h the result of disease, Uitiallj
of physical as well as mental. Thcie U
much about the manifestations of many In
sane persons that seems Inexplicable, yet
no one Is left In doubt as tn tho moving
cause of the Insanity ; to wit, disease.
Some twelve years ago, by Invitation, I
called at the house of a frknd to witness n
spiritual circle or sitting. There was n
gentleman prccnl who was known nnd
claimed to bo a "personating" medium.
There were some twelve other persons pre
sent and perhaps half of them linn be
llcvcrs in spiritualism. When the time ar
rived to form the elide the medium invited
those, and those only, who vvctc believers,
or at least nol opposci j, lo sit In the circle,
when himself nnd five or sit othein were
scaled around a centre table. Aft( t ill.
reeling theve In the r'uclc to keep their
minds steadily on Iho subject by h'.m
named, nnd the spectators to keep still,
those In the circle each placed their hands
upon tho table ns tho medium directed
Before sitting down the medium had been
requested to personate a well known gen
tleman n short time, previously deceased.
The circle had not sat over two minutes
before It became evident lo mc that
they were developing a power of some
sort. The medium oon closed his ov'es,
and seemingly became uneoncious. His
breathing became rapid, and his heart beat.
so that the motion was seen from tils cloth
lug. One of the circle lost control of his
hands, ami they struck the table v Identic
and as rapidly as drum sticks iu the hands
ofn skillful drummer would a drum. All
the circle with cue exception were more or
less nuectcdi and nppirrntly each In iu1
ecrdancu with his or her physical and men
tal organism. After sitting some fi tccn
minutes (les or more,) the medium feemcd
Involuntarily tn raise both hand an 1 strike
the tal.lo with great force, anil Imm.'iliately
thereupon seemed r.lsed from tlio chair
to his feet, without cliort of Ids own. Thin
ended the circle, and then commenced tlio
personation. The medium stood there for
fifteen or twenty minutes, personating as he
claimed, the deceased, and did indeed close
ly linitnte the voice and manner of the de
ceased when In life. During this trial the
medium was evidently in an abnormal con
dition. The electric forco or power which
tho circle had developed, together with the
influence of his Imagination upon his ner
vous system, had produced tho efi'ect the
inanilestntlons. W lie personating the
deceased he talked all tho time, and while
the voice and manner were a good Imita
tion, there was no point or sense to what
he said. A strictly temperate man always,
he appeared at tho time more like a man
intoxicated than anything cle. But It
was not rum that affected him.
Not long after I witnessed the foregoing
a lady then residing In Rutland couiry was
announced to speak in a certain town in the
county at the time named. She was known
ns a "franco speaker." At the time ap
pointed she was present in n commodious
church which was filled lo its utmost capa
city. I wa fortunate to get a seat near the
deik that sho occupied, which gate men
good opportunity for observation. Soon af
ter she was cated, she apparently subsided
Into a kind of stupor, and In this condition
I should judge she lemalind for nearly a
half hour. All nt once she opened her
eyes, rose to herfeetnnd cotnmcncid speak
ing; her eyes, voice, manner, the full view s,
all showing intense excitement. She oc
cupied an hour or more in speaking, and
said to a friend after she left the desk that
he had been under the control of the spirits
and did not herself know w hat she had said.
I am quite sure nobody else knew what situ
said, ns the words rolled out from beginning
to end without regard to order, meanuig or
construction ot sentences, and from her en
tire speech not au idea could havo been
gathered, The almost universal opinion of
those who heard her was that she feigned
those appearances "manifestation-," but
I had this opinion; that shu had the power
to throw herself into that alinorin.il condi
tion which I believe to have been lilt e less
than temporary Insanity. I believe that
her peculiar nervous system and menial or
gnnism enabled herto do this; certain it i,
if there aro any spirits tint will cause mor
tals to utter such gibberish n she did for
an hour, I would say, from such. Good
Lord deliver no.
The lat communication in regard to tho
Eddy family, appeared In the Oi.obe of
Oct. 10, over the signature of J C. Wi.-Hams-,
from which It appear that Mr Wil
liams has visited tho E dy's and gives in
detail of what he saw and heard. Mr. Wil
liams intelligence and character are well
known, and I shall not dispute what In
states n facts. I shall only deny what
might be Inferred as his conclusions.
He says, "the circle was then formed con
slsting of sixteen persons by joining hands.
The light was then extinguished, uml hu
mediately the musical liisirumtnt began to
play." It appears that the nui'l 'al bistru
ments consisting of a violin, giiltar.tambour
Ine, bells, tc, were upon a table, nt which
Horatio Eddy, tho medium in that circle sat,
This nf Itself In my judgment furnishes tho
explanation. The medium with the circle
of 111 persons developed or collected the
electric force which produced the sounds
There are many Instances of the kind
on record In which muslc.il Instruments
havo been made to give forth musical
sounds. A man In Vermont once thought
that he had succeeded In an Invention to
play pianos and organs by means of elec
tricity, and 1 heard r. parlor organ or
mcllodcon for an hour sending forth sweet
soundi when no one wni within kevcral
feet of It, no other power but electricity
was operating It. It did not succeed It
would give fine musical sounds but could
not he controlled with that force so as to
be practicable as nn Instrument of music.
I am occupying too much space, and
must hasten to a conclusion, but would ad
vise our friend Willi ims, the next time he
visits tho Eddy's not to bo at tho trouble li
tlo the medium, or to cxatnlno the cellar or
