JJrothkh Xickkrson. Tho following
circumstances were communicated thro'
mo to you by the ."pints, or iu other
Tords, 1 am
a medium oi the urat water;
fori took my pen in hand to day, and
the fipiriti dictated me to impart to you,
aud hence to your readers, the iojlowin
stranre facts in " Harwonial Philosophy."
It sec ui3 to me to bo almost more than
believe, but whtu we cou-jdir lint
the spirits "aro around" tluve dy.s, bik
ing slap-jacks, moving tables, bedstead
and trunks, talking with the dead, heal
ing the sick and wounded, pratti-eiug den
tistry, and conversing with distant rela
tives; why should you, or I, or anybody
else, doubt their ability, or disposition to
get up marriages, or divorces, or cause
the Lovo-fVcsf of V-ma!es to desert her
Husband, her children, and her friends !
I think, with the amount of evidence
before us, of these thiugs, that we must
be entirely spiritless to say thce is noth
ing in spiritualism, I, myself, have al
ways, up to this time, been an unbeleiver
in the medium business, but when the
spirits make me write things that I knew
nothing about before, I must s;iy that I
"cave." Hence 1 take thii iuethQ4 of
making the fact public.

There dwells iu the land of Clarendon,
over against Xatville, a certain chief Mag
istrate, a ruler over many people, wh j is
well skilled in law, politics, surveying,
and above all in 44 Harmonial Philoso
phy!" Now this chief Magistrate is a
firm believer in spiritual mesmerism, Joe-WallcT-km,
Mrc.-Tuttle-iepi, and other
non-cntitcs. Now, therefore, owing to
the Kftrpme devotion and obedience of
this di&ciplie and his hand-maiden, Chloe
to the mandates of the spirits, through
their mediums, they were blessed with a
greater manifestation of regard than has
fallen to the lot of a,nv one mortal since
the days of Elijah, or lSeclzebuh.
Now it happened near thp 8th hour of
the 15th dav of (ho 5ih month of the!
year A. D. 1855, this chief ruler hear 'i
great knocking at his gate; whereupon
he looked tin atnl beheld not far nfT n mm
clothed with (he hpirit nhd'lou fJcartt.-
And the rakr spake and asked him con
cerning the nature ol ins visit ; and he
auwsered aud said, behold I am the great
High Priest, in the order of the spiritual
mediums, and am come from the east,
from whence enjauatcs all true light, and
trarelmg to the ret in search fa
star of beauty ; tell me, is thy haudmai-
en Mary withiu thy gates? And the
Chief Kuler answered and said : How
inowost thou that I had a hand-maiden
oy the nanrc at jlnvvc And the High
Priest answered and said: Verily I sav
unto vou that it was revealed to me when
a deep bleep was upon me, by the spirits
of the departed iu.-.l. made ierfi-ct bv be-
ievingin harmonial Philosophy: of which
L am the author ant teacher atiKwig ihe
nations of the Earth. And the Chief Ku-
er cried aloud and said, Allah ! Allah !
God is great, enter in at the tjate, shake
the dust from thy sandels, for my house
.hall bo thv house: and straiuhtwav he
ntercd the house of tho Chief Kuler,
washed the High Priests feet, annointed
ns beard and gave him meat to eat and
water to driuk, that it might be said of
iim. that as he had dout Lj others even
so would he expect it to be dono him in
i ice Kwjner,
And it c&vryo lo m tiiAt wh?n the
High Priest had eatno, tlw Chief Hulir
sent for his hand-maiden Mary, who was
i believer in Spiritual Manifestations and
Harmonial Philosophy; and h came to
pas3 fnat y-kan .lary JvencJJ the great
High Priest, she fell upon her face and
went, and prayed that she micht find
favor in his sight, and that she might i
glean where he gleaned, eat where he ate,
sleep where he slept, and that she might I
bo permitted to wash his feet, annoint his j
beard aud call his people her people, hiv
house her house, so Jon& as their pirii'. i
dwelt in harmony. Kut if it should come
to pass that there should arise strife, con
tentions or the least warring of their spir
its, or if she should behold another man
more comely than tho High Priest or one
lyith a longer beard and the spirits told
her to leave the High Priest and cleave
to the other than she would feci con
strained to do so jnasuiuch as she is a
strong n;itidcd woinnn and gifted much
above her sex, in fcpefvh, manners and
intellect. Then tho High Priest answered
and said; arise beautiful virgin for thou
ljast found ivir in my sight go honiu
array thyself in biidal habiliments, for r
is tljc cipruss command of the spirits thui
we should be united during their pleastiM
and our own. And straightway she nnM
grid vent away to put on the bridal dress,
while the Chief Kuler took counsel of
Kcncdicts treatise as to the precise form
And ceremony of & Spiritual Marriage.
nd it amcto pasthat in a few minxes,
Mary the kinswoman of Chloe appearad
before the High Priest and the Chief
Magistrate, arrayed in garments of white
&ik ; ?notlcss as the lilly and a wreath of
white hoses crowning her expansive and
iutcllcctnal brow. Thrn the Chief Ilulc
commanded the High Priest and Mry ii
stand up bi foie him, might unite
by law, Wvj-io. i! Spirit had joined
together iu harmony of feeling. And
fter the Cuk;f Kuler had called iu the
witnesses from the field, he spoke unto
the Ili'di Tricst and said : wilt thou take
i Mary the kinswoman of Chloe to
: lan-tul nnd wedded wife, so Ion" a
i of yi:; sus
nail live. And the Ilicrh Priest
and said; lam a man of the
fcp:nt, guided by the Spirit, hence 1 put
the long accustom usages f sotJj fa;
from infl; neither do, I icycreuce thj'prc
cepis of Vhe liibjc enough to let tiem pre
vail with uu against the manifest teach-ing-s
of the Spirits; .hence I promise tu
take lor my lawful auQ wedded wife, until
the Sprits shall reveal to me, that our
Spirits do cot harmonize; or until the j j
reveal to me one, more lovely man sue;
to all of which I dj most solemnly prom
ise. Atjd the Chief Kuler answered and
&;iid; Allah! Alltdi! God is great, so
niuU It be. Then the Chief Kuler spake
unto Mary and said; wilt thou forsake
and renounce the vain things cf hU
wr.-rld and cleave unio this High Priest,
K'i Icig as thou o cither of you shaJt ivc.
A nl she auswered and said; yea verily I
will forsake and renounce all the vajn
things of this world, even unto my former
husband ; yea, and my two lovely child
ren, to become this man's wife. And I
will remain faithful to him so long as our
spirits harmonize, or until I sec a man
that finds nore favor iu my sijrht when
I will go from the east, the place of light,
to the west, the place of moral darkness,
obtain a divorce, leave my family and
and friends, and do tho entire bidding of
the Spirits, even if it should be to marry
again. Then the High Priests answered
aud said ; Mary ! howbeit tliat thon art
arrayed in spotless white, with a wreath
of white roses on thy head ; those being
the emblems oi' vinrintty, -when theu hast
alruujy $ husband, and also children.
Then she answered aud said ; verily verily
I say unto you that that was a marriage
of the Kody and convenience, and not of
Soul or Spirits, therefore I consider my
dress as an emblem u( the condition cf my
Spirit spotless a3 the lilly. Thou the,
IJjgh Prieit answered an-i si 1 Eureka!'
" 1 have found" orjo tlt is born of tho
Spirit in whom I am wdl pleased.
Whereupon the Chief Kuler pronounces
- llie: v.v'r mc .firrli. And trairhtyrav
Chloe spread tho table and set before
them meat and eggs and wine and tea and
cakes, whereupon they did eat and drink
and wcro satisfied, when they soon took
their departure for the cast, the residence
of the High Priest and the excitement
produced along the highway as they were
leaving town can best be described by a
verse from John Gilpin for:
Tbe dogs did bark, the children screamed
I'p tiew the wilidowH all ;
And every Soul cried out woll dene,
As JlU 1 . N.r could bawl.

A Runaway Couple,
runaway couple, "true lovycrs," of
the taost fervent Yankee stemp, arrived
at a small inn near Koston, aud wanted
the landlord to send for a minister to
" splice 'em," and to be" quick about it."
The landlord complied, and the " licens

The Yrvilree stood up with his lady

"Yaas !" said the bridegroom.
" To be your lawful and wedded wife ?"

" No, you won't no, you don't ! You

with this he, turned the key and put it
(amidit tho Vitteringof the witnesses whom
the landlord had called in) in his pocket.
Seizing the baud of his truijdiii'j bride
he said :

After reflecting a moment, the parson
concluded to run the risk of the informal

The truth of tho following story is
vouched for by the issottri correspon-
dent of Harper's Mi,Klllj :
Not a hundred miles from here, some
six months ago, lived a fair widow, pos
sessed of those chamiing qualities that
most dazzle and charm the bachelor. She
was young, handsome, and very wealthy.
.Mrs. Jackson took an eastern tour last

Their officer rode into tho court-yardt
which, being partly roofed, formed tho

These raw levies, hastily and ill-equipped,
