We have received torn the publishers,
Janscn, McClurg & Co., Chicago, "Mem

ted from the German by George I'.
Upton. This little volume Is a marvel of
beauty, typographically, ami In a literary
sense "is a wonderfully beautiful
tlou, pure in tone, exquisite in thought,
antl breathing through the spirit of ideal
love the thoughts which nearest touch
the higher life. The character of the
heroine, which Is founded upon Goethe's
'Uebcr Allcu Glpfeln 1st Huh,' is drawn
with charming simplicity and power. It
RatiMics tiic highest Ideal of womanly
loveliness, and the purest t-euse of poetic

Tnig colored people of Louisville sufler
by the failure of the Freedmen's Savings
Bank to the extent of f 105,000. They
have memorialized Congress for aid, but
ills not probable that anything can be
done for them. The report of the com
missioners of the bank show grievous
mismanagement and fraud on the part of
the managers. The funds were lent to Irre
sponsible persons on worthless securities
and are Irretrievably lost to tliedcpoltors.
"Under existing conditions the negro
votes the Itepubllean ticket because he
knows his friends are of that party" said
President Grant in his message. The
Freedmen's bank was a Itepubllean eon
cern from stem to stern and the colored
depositors, seventy thousand of them,
who have lost the fruits of ten years'
free labor, can now reflect on tho good
turn their "friends," ail of the Uepub
JJcan party, have served them.
Wo do not sympathize witli the move

THR KATir. UIXU I ltAlK.
Certain of the Spiritualists of this city
declared yesterday that there was "noth
ing in the pretended cxpoMirc of 'Katie
King, " and that all we had said In I UK
ItULi.ETi.s- was an "Infernal lie." With
people of this kind there is no Use to ar
gue, and they cannot be persuaded to re
turn from following after the mostfooll-h
ofsuper.-tUli)n. They arc wedded to their
Idols, and it might be the
part of wisdom to let them alone ; but It
docs us good-tn see them quirm in their
efforts to believe what Is unreasonable
and exceedingly foolish.
"Katie Mug." whatever tlto Spiritual
ists may say, lias been exposvd, and only
very stupid oriery foolish people will
deny the fact. And tills U the manner In
which her ghostly robes were stripped
from her comely body :
Mr. and Mrs. Holmes, of I'lilliuiclphia,
arc .Spiritual mediums. All good and
true SnlrltualNts reco'mlc them as such,
Through and by the aid of their medium
Is tic power, a female spirit who had
lived some hundred years ago, "materl-
all.ed" that is to say, assumed a body
that was vMble to the naked eye, palpa.
ble to the touch, and endowed
with the abllltv ot locomotion nml oi
speec .rjl0 m0,t Mile Spiritualists
l.i tic I'uuilirv KiM HiU niatiri.illzi'il
P'fr, touched her, and spoke to and with
.HBkJhcv were all convinced. Among
tliCMKobcrt Dale Utvcu nnd Dr,
Chlldi. TWitics saw the spirit walk
out of the cuTKict and disappear into it.
They wereduintfoundod, if they were not
convinced. Visitoigavo to the spirit ar
ticles of jewelry, and'vthcr present, with
which she vanished into thin air; she
talked; and told strange things about
the life to come ; she was a wonder and a
Uut now comes the sequel. An Incred
ulous gentleman succeeded In tracing the
spirit to a boarding lioit'e, nnd after long
contlnucd effort succeeded In persuading
her to confess the deception site had prac
ticed, aud to produce the gauzy dresses
she wore at the manifestations.
These dresses were shown, with a largo
quantity of the jewelry that had
been presented to tho "spirit," to Mr.
Owen aud to Dr. Cliiids ; they were w"
. i..i ......w ., h.iii lies) aud
"blood, and they had tho moral courage
to say mi, and acknowledge that they had
been deceived. Our very wise Spiritual
ists may bellevo they can help their cause
by denying the exposure of Katie King,
butlnfacttliey will not they will by such
stubbornness prove themselves to bo
unreasonable aud very foolish people.
Now, 'hen ; since no sensible person
can doubt that reputable spiritual inedl
mu8,""bcon caught practicing materi
alizing tricks antl iue them off for
genuine manifestations, what confidence
can we place In any of the so-called
manifestations of spirit power? May
they not all bo as tricky as the Katie
King trick ?
Tin: itoss Ainii'i-rio.v sm.sk.
After long waiting there appears to be
good reasons for believ lug that Charley
itoss, the child nbducted from his par
ents last July, in Germantown, a suburb
of Philadelphia, will lie returned to them.
The circumstances of Ids abduction are
fresh In the mind of the public: One
day In June, Charley, with his brother
Walter, were playing In the neighbor
hood of their parents' house. Charley
was four and Walter eight years of age.
Two men, loitering near, talked to the
boys ami gavo them toys and candy. On
the llrst of July, In (lie afternoon, be
tween four and live o'clock,
these two men drove up in
a nugL'y where the two liovs
were again playing or walking and Invi
ted them to ride. The boys went willing.
ly into the buggy; alter riding some
time, one of the men told Walter to get
out and buy some lire-crackers. 'i't,L,
boy got out and went Into a store, tho
buggy diovo on, and Charley Itoss lias
not been epen or heard of since.
Mr. Itoss, the father of Ihebov, search-
ed diligently for his lost child, evoked
the aid of the police and advertised, with
no success. Tho loss of the boy and
myttery attending ids carrying off ex
cited the sympathy and the curiosity not
only or tho people of Philadelphia but
of the wholo country. Mr. ltoss him-
Eclf offered threo hundred dollars
reward for him and tho authorities
of Philadelphia twenty thousand dollar?.
These rewards Induced tho abductors to
make known through tiie personal col
umn of the l'lilladelpha Ledger that they
were ready to negotiate, but nothing
definite was arrived at, owing, most
probably, to their fear of detection and
punishment' Many rumors ol
the iMdlng of the missing boy
j,a" ocen put In circulation In all parts
of the, country, but they have all proved
false and Ills whcreabouU has remained
an unsolved mystery.
On the morning of thellth lnt . two
burglars were discovered In the summer
house of. Judge Van llrunt, at the village
of Hay lildgc, not far from llrooklyn.
The houe was unoccupied, but a burglar
alarm extended to tho next house
owned by Judge Van llrunt's brother,
Mr. itulef Van llrunt, nnd by
this means the family of Mr. Van llrunt
were made aware of the presence of burg
lars In the unoccupied house. Mr. Van
llrunt, his son and a workman, armed
with shot guns, proceeded to tho house,
and after waiting nwlillc concluded to go
In to the burglar. The turning of the
lock caused them to make a rush for the
cellar, and fhortlv after, In their ef
forts to ccape, one was nhot dead almost
Instantly und Iheotherinorially wounded.
The wounded man lingered about
three hours, lio gave Ids name as Jo
seph Douglass; when Informed that his
companion was dead, aud knowing Ills
own wounds to be mortal, he coufcssid
that they were the abductors of Charley
Ko;S. When prcsccd to tell all about it,
he answered that "the boy" but fear
or pain or stubboruess kept him silent
further than this, nml he died without re
vealing the whereabouts of the lot boy.
Uut the burglars were noted characters,
nnd since the tragic occurrence It lias
transpired that they have long been sus
pected of living the abductors of Charley
itoss, and inspector Walling, of New
York, has for months been engaged In
"working up the case." Douglass was
an unmarried man aged twenty-eight
years, nnd Mis companion, t llllam
Moshier wasforty-llveam!!ias a wife nnd
five children. It is thought that through
this woman all the mysteries of the Itoss
abduction ease will be made mam.
It Is now elvar that money anil only
innncv wait the niiisn of the nliiliirtlon.
