A Convention to take into consideration
tlio political affairs of Arkansas was ad
dressed bj General Sherman, during lm re
cent visit to Little Kock, as follows :
Gextlemts: Yon are fully informed of
the reasons why I am here, which i by
special invitation of yonr committee. . I am
a military man. and as Mich it is not expect
ed or desired that 1 shall engage in any po
litical discussion, or give you any advice
politically. "We military men dislike to
mingle in political movement. Wc are
sworn to obey tho Constitution and laws,
and in this country the laws govern.
I have not stopixsd to inquire by what
authority vou come together, nor do I care ;
for citizens of any neighborhood, county or
State, have a right to meet together and con
sult as to the best mode of promoting the in
terest of the community, but be sure you
represent the sentiments of the people. I
think ycu ought to be very careful that you
reflect tho opinion of the whole pcopje of
ArkansM. I know the people of the South,
and I know no Southern gentleman would
willing. or intentionally represent himself
to be what he is not But I understand you
are citizens of Arkansas, and delegates of the
Icople, therefore you have a right to be here

to consider your grievances, if yon have
anyarld to petition the President or Con
gress for redress, ana I Dciicvc nicy win uo
But yon haTC a more important work. It
is not political. Your State needs attention
in other directions. I conic here from a dis
tance, and I tell yon I find yen for "behind
, all other parts of the country. Givo your
immediate attention to those tilings which
will make year State invitinjr to tho stranger
to come and tlo among you. You have
not fifty mllea of good roads in Arkansas;

any system of internal improvement, or
developed any of your vast resources.
You uro wciootuo bad: into the Union,
which is to-dar stronger than ever, and tho
United States is now more highly honored
abroad than Lcrctorore, and beloved at home.
But you thuJ: you havo not all the rights
yea aro entitled to, yet you now have more
riglits and irivilegej under existing circum

country cicoj t Axjaica. Had, you dope as
yea did in this land, ur.'jcr the blcody flag

would not hava been permitted to assemble

A SPIRITUAL REVELATION.
From the Dciroit Iribuncl
Last spring, a Mrs. Leonard left her hus-band-at
Ytwilanti and went to Rattle Creek,
takingwith her five children, two"by' Leon
ard and three by a former husband. It seems
that she was a lndicvcr in the doctrine of
modern spiritualism, and was led to desert
her husband through instructions from the
spirit world. She herself possessed the pow
crof communicating with epiritSj being, in
the parlance of tliat sect, a "medium." By
advicc from the same suiernatural source,
she drop)cd the name of Leonard and, be
ing matrimonially joined, according to the
ordinances in vogue in the spiritual world,
to her first husband, again assumed his
name, and called herself Mrs. Haviland.
Vhcn she reached Battle Creek with her
children, she had $-500 in money, and setup
in.housckceping by herself. About this pe
riod, another character appears upon the
stage, in the person of Dr. Baker of Adrian,
who was also a spiritual medium of great
repute among his sect.
Doctor Baker boarded with Mrs. Havi
land. The house was a great resort for spi
ritualists, there being many of that sect in
and about Battle Creole, and "circles' and
"(-cances" were the principal occupation of
the gifted doctor and his pupils; for it ap
pears that the Haviland house was a sort of
spiritual academy for the training up of
female mediums through the superior knowl
edge and iriftt of the doctor. A Miss Mcr-
ritt, of Ionia, a medium, was of the house
, hold, and a Miss Hadnas, of Battle Creek,
a voung lady of seventeen years of age, was
a boarder in the family. She was develop
ing her gifts, witli the help of the other
mediums, as a "test medium;" that is, the
vcracitv of snirits in ceneral, and loquacious
once in particular, was tested through her
superior irifls. It was said that she "devel
oped" more rapidly than anv test medium
ever known in these parts, being quick-witted
and shrewd. This academy went on with
swimming success through the summer and
fall, and furnislicdincontrovcrtablospiritaal
evidence for the conversion ol tlie unbcliev
About four weeks ago the doctor borrowed
SG0O of Miss Mcrritt and bouaht a lot in
the outskirts of the town, upon which he
built his castle in the shape ot a board shanty
with one room. Into this shanty with one
room the doctor moved the three women
above mentioned, and the five children and
they all . lived together, continuing to
develop ' the voting lady as a test me

ilund had procured a nlacc for the two chil
dren named Leonard, and had told the other
three that she would take care ol them. On
Saturday afternoon last some children living
in mo iieigiiuoniooii were piajinjj near me
shanty, when tho two iconara children
made their anncarancc. On beincr asked
'where their older brothers and sisters were,
thcr said they were dead. Ihe children
ran homo and told their parents. Some of
them visited the shanty and found the re
j:or be true. The woman Leonard, alias
ila i, said that the youngest, a gilr
agi ! years, died on Ihursday about
nooi t j second, a boy aged Bix years, died
on i t.i..y morning at ten o'clock; and the
third, boy about eight years old, died 'oh
Friday afternoon at livco clock. Miss Mer
rill says she asked the doctor what they
should do with the children if they should
die, and ho said ho would make a box and
bury t.icm in bis lot. They claimed that
the children died of scrofula. It was cren-
crally believed, however, that these medi
um", wishinir to travel and not be encum
bered with the children, determined nuietlv-
to roraovc them to a better sphere. Consid-
enne that thev con hi uo with tnem nnd ci-
joy their society quite as much in the spirit
ual world, without the inconvenience of tak
ing care of them and providing them with
bread and butter and clothes, tlio plan, no
doubt, seemed a very sensible one.
A jtoft mortem examination of the bodies
of the children was made by Doctors Cox,
French and Saunders, the result of which
was that the children were healthy, and had
