AXOTUER LETTER FROM BILL
: He Addrcaa hit Constituents.
Uespfctapul. Peei'Lf: I . address you on this
okkashun with a profound admirntion for the con
sideration and the nice discrimination which caused
yon ta honor me by your votes with a seat in the
Siaate of Oeorgy. For two momentus and inspirin
weeks tbe Legislature have been in solemn awsion,
one of whom I am proud to be which. For tere
ml dnys we were engaged aa skout liiaklng a sor
ter rckoiiysance to see whetlier Georgy . ware k
iStnte or a Injun terrytory whether we wero in
the old Un-ion or out of it whether me and my
fokes and yoa and your -fokes were somebody or
nobody, and lastly, - but 'by no means lcastly,
whether our poor Innocent children, born during
the war, were all illegal and had to b borri over
agio or m-t, This , but ,. pint are moxb unsettled,
but our women are advised to be kalin and sereen.
" My tVicnds, our aim hav honestly been to rlt you
allback into the folds of tlia gloryoua old Uakn,
Like the prodygal son, wa had nuthia to live .on.
and leeUu lonesome and buugry, hav been bow in
aod scrapiti and makio apologys for five or six
months. ' We have been seen standin afnr off for
weeks and works, but dura tho calf do they kill
for us. . They know we've got nothin, for they eat
np our substance, and as for putting rings on pur
fingers, we couldent expekt it uu'.il they bring back
the Jewelry they enrryed' away, t cannot say, in
the lnngwidge of the poit, that our labor have been
a labor of love, for we've had nioustrus poor cu
couragciutut to b shore; but we bud all set our
beads towards the stars and stripes, and wo jintly
determined that, come wool come wo, sink or swim,
survive or perish, thunder iitenin, we'd slip back,
or sneuk back, or git back somehow or somehow
elseorweJB stay out forever and ever amen and
beliahged i'o cm, so called, t golly.
Up to this time it have been an op hill bigness.
Tho team was a good one and tbe gear all sound
nnd the wajrin greased, but tbe road, are perhaps
tbe rudest, rosieucst cordyroy in tho world. Its
pull up aud skotch, and pull up and sketch, aud
ever aud anonymous the skotch slips out and the
lung ruts round and aw .y we go into tbe gully.
Andy Jotisin hi the driver, and he suys "Go slow,"
and be hollers "Wo ! wo !" and loses the road, and
tbea W have to go back. to the fork and wait til)
he blazes tbe way. He, soems to be doiit his bc3t,
but then thar is Sumuer aud Satan and Stevens
and Davis and other like gentlemen, who keep
iio.lerm at mm aod crackm his hip, nua oontusin
his. idecj, so that sometimes we don't know whether
he's gec-iu or bow-in. My; friends, about them
fcllors, J don't know what I ort to say. If you do,
or if anybody does, I wish they would say it, I
dou't encourage cuwin In nobody, not at all, but if
you know or a man that can t be broke ot it du
riu his patera! life, it moat be well to hire him by

Now for .the arlice. Tbe main count Iq tha iflr
dictment against me Is thus stated : .
A few years age) party of spiritualists Iri Neve,
York, ' composed chieily of actors and - actrttttw;
held regular sittings foil the prndnctioa of ipiritual
phenomena. One of the members of this circln
was an actor by the name of Stuart, who was ra
eognized by all as tha most powerful . rnudiunv. -'
Tha nianifestationa wltaaased at these teaneto. iretrd
so wonderful as to give, to tha , meetings. Abe dia '
linguished title of the "Magic pircje." Tpev
created so much Interest' thai Tt Was considered a
special privilege to bo admitted to this magtA
chamber., Mr. . Stuart, the nuguvtuer, : or- mogib
worker, than Stuart the actor. , '; .',-., , ,;
The "actor named Stuart" ia now betted known
as tbe "the actor' named Sotheru."' Following
sufficiently illustrious precedents, I used an assuBMd
name when I entered ou my profession, '-and I only
resumed. my own by the advice of a, friend. Tho
"party of spiritualuts" was not composed chiefly.
of "actors and actresses.' It would hare been
nona the orae if it had been, but in reality It waa
composed of twelve gentlemen of high position ia
their respective professions, who, actuated ' by j
common turioslty and tntcrvst, and exhaustive in-- '
vestigntion of. the phenomeuri of "siiiritualljln."
Wa were quite ready for either result; tu believe
it if it were true; to reject il if fbuud iUUe; ana. '
in the hitter case,. I, at least, resolved lutbjotimo
to expose it. For inoro than two years wa had
weekly meetings. At these, by practice, we bad
succeeded in producing pot only all tho wonderful'
"manifestations' of tho. professional 'media," buL
other cflccta still more startling. Wo simply tried;
to reproduce the appearances aod the result which' -wa
liad heard Of, and read of, and seen and w
succeeded. , Pushing our praetiee aud experiment
further, wo, attained the capacity, to execute tcata, -much
more remarkable thaq thoce presented at any
of the 'spiritual ttuucei." An American grntle-1
man, aud myself took the part of the iudta"'
and lha rest of the company assisted I and I do not.
hesitate to sny that we outdid anything aver at
tempted or accomplished by Hume, or the Davcn
lorts, or any of the other more notorloiu -spiritual
exhibitors. -' !. .!( .! ,... :.. ) , p: t
Not the least of our discoveries was that tlietr
wholo thing was a myth,, Wa did all that thu
spiritualists did, and more; but we were our own
"agents," and had no need of recourse to aupef-'
natural influences, had wa had tha power to com-"
maud them. , We commenced our tanet in a spirit
of legitimate investigation j we continued them
for the sake of the a-nu-wrncat they ftv ttri.l.M .
and our friends. We became famous In atmalt
way, Wa hnd to start an engagement book, end '
to make appointments. :. People came from all pnruv
of America, and ' waited for their turn. We got,
into, a larger line of busi oess tbatt any of fh? pro
fess onal exhibitors, and we werer' extensively pa.
troniaed. The only difference was wa didn't charge '
anything. , Wc tookno money Uireutly or indi
rectly. Our entertainment, being free, was liber
ally supported; and when I add that the evenings
iuvariably wound up with a jolly little supper,1
given solely at our own expense, It may be under
stood that "The Miracle Club" was much faroni,
and warmly encouraged. Tho ludulpence of our,
lore ot run rost us tome money but yielded us an '
immensity of pleasure. : To apeak colloquially,' tt .
was an extensive but rxpensira "sell.1' We did
pntpens under the. tahle and get signatures of
Shakesa?are and Carrick and other valuable auuv
grapht;'we did produce spirit hands nod spirit
forms; people did float In the air at least wa made
our audience really believe thry did which waa .
quite sufflciont for our purposoand theirs. V (ft ,.
hlbited phenomena which were startling enongh, '
in all conscience, and we made our visitors believA'" ,v.
ia their reality. . Uow wa tuceeded In doing this ' '
how we made tome of tha moat Intelligent- inert .
lo America believe that J they really taw and, fel,
what they fancied they saw and ' Mt how wa'
produced results tbe causes of which were not ap.'1' '
parent to tbe physical senses nf tha apeotatora-'
How, in fine, we did thing! which mutt bara. -k
seemed to be, and what many of our visitors b
liered fo be (rmernatural and mirsmioirs I do oot
intend to f .plaln. We did tbem, how wi did
thertt i do pot feel disposed lo declare; but I bav A
not tho slightest hesitation in tayina- tbtt wa did. .
not do litem by spiritual agenuie. Yet profession
als and paid 'media' came and saw, and theinselvea
arnwed our superior ovrr 'tho spirits.' ' :
I have been told by scicnliuV persons even in

and very flatlefing to be told that. Perhaps I an a 1
