The Habits and Every Day Life

NEW HAVEN, May 10, 1867.
Thirteen miles north of this ciH-, on
the old turnpike leading to Hartford,
and about u milo west of the village of
Wallinglord, is tho settlement ot free
lovers known as tho Walliiigfortl Com
munity. Their farm is situated on
the hill side midway up O'o slopo ot
Mount lm, in view ot some ot the
prettiest scenery of tho fetato. Iho
famous Hanging Hills loom up to the
northward, and Mount Cttrmel frowns
down upon Mount Tarn, while the
eastern ciIl'o of theirgrounds isskirted
by the Qumnipiac river a stream of
In this picturesque spot the commu
nity was founded in the year 1851,
when n farmer named Alltn became
impressed with free lovo ideas anil re-
solved to start a household. Ho made
converts of bis own wife and children,
and from less than ten at first tho
movement soon increased to about
forty, arid has since remained near
that number. The exact number nt
present is forty-five. There are many
more women than men is this commit-
niiy. It received ono or two accessions
within ns many years, nnd is soon to
receive a family of five persons.
The land belonging to this communi
ty comprises two hundred and twenty
eight acres, devoted .in part to the or
dinary crops for the uho of the lamily
and the growth of strawberres, grapes
it'itt all the various fruits, tho '.'mining
of which is an important and profita
ble department of indii-lry. From a
a nail farm, originally, the setth ment
has expanded to a cluster of buidings,
ono of which, tho principal mansion,
lately builtnml is very commodius.
The wants of tho community, however
are not ns yet supplied, and another
mansion is to be erected. The dwell
ing house and i newspaper ofllce for
they print a weekly; paper are sur
rounded by gardens, walk and shrub
bery, all neatly laid out. , . 1
..Financially the Wallingford branch
has not ben ns successful ns thoOnieila

money nnd continually increasing
their faeilties for earning more. Sur

is positively denied by them. Tho
attraction of temporary affinities is
probably tho rule.
THE SABBATH NOT SACRED.
They tvush and print on Sunday.
They do not believe in tho sacred
character of the day. The Sabbath,
they say was abolished with tho com
mandments and tho old Jewish laws.
They do not perform unnecessary la
bor on tho day. Tliey print their pit
pur and wash their linen because it is
convenient t: do and does not interfere
with tho regular week day work.
HEALTH OF THE COMMUNITY
It nuiKt not be imagined tlmt tho
men aro (Unutieal looking individuals,
or ascetics, wrapped up in their mon
strous belief. On the contrary, they
are trcnial, happv and hearty, and an-
piirentryin the besf of health. Sickness
is almost unknown in the community.
Five graves record the total deaths in
sixteen years out of an average of forty
members, and some of these were from
chronic deseases contracted before tho
victims joined tho movement. In ease

remedies are used, such as tho applii-a

combine both ho intiinnt ?!y that they
aro ' inseparablo Taking tho Jiible
audits teachings they maintain the
perfection of mankind ns u result of
the second coming of Christ, which
they claim took plaeo within ono gen
eration from the time of his presence
on earth. Matthew i., 21; liomans 3, 4,
and otlur texts which they quote, de
clare, they hoi 1, the object of the mis
sion and sacrificn of Christ to have
been tho salvation of his people, not
merely or primarily from- the conse-
qnciuii of their sins, but from their
Freedom in love, tbeclemcntof their
belief which has given them their more
popular name, is held ns the cardinal
point of their religious practice. Mr.
Xoyea. tho founder . of tho system, in
his pamphlet explaining tho doetrino
of his sulfation li-oin sin, sums up the
mutter in tho following words:
Christ condensed all the requirements
of tho law and prophets into the sim
ple rule: . ,
Whatever yo would that men
should do to you, do you even so . to
them." Matt. 712. Paul said: "He
that loveth another hath lulfilled the
law; tor this. Thou shalt not commit
adultery., Thou chnlt nt kill, Thou
shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear
false wit ness, Thou sluil not covet; and
if there bo any other commandment,
it is briefly comprehended in the say
ing, Thou shnlt lovo thy jioighbor as
thyself.. Lovo worketh no ill to his
neighbor; therefore love is the fulfill
ment of tho law." Rom. 13:&-10. And
again; : "All tho law is full)! I led in ono
word, even in this, thou shalt love thy
! neighbor as thvself." Gill. 4:14 Thus
j the law, viewed through the new cov-
enant. instead of boincr "exceedingly
broad." in aa narrow as one word
love. The question before the mind
; yourg ot both sexes to associate in
j love witli personsolderthan themselves;
jUiid, if possiblo, with thoso who are
1 spiritual and have been seme timo in
tho school of self control, and who are
jthus aide to mitko love safe nnd edify
of ! ing. This is only another form. of the
i ono who Bi'eke)
ono who 8-eki niter uolinvHs, is not
whether ho can duly ' obscrvt all the
ordinances of the Jewish or Christian
ritual, or whether lie can immediately
perform all the good works which may
bit conceived as resulting from the
principle of tho law when perfectly
doveloped in extarnaL action, but sim
ply whether ho can love. If he does
this one thing, tho Word of God author
ises his conscience to be content, for
"Inve is the fulfilling of the law."
.Marriage, therefore, which unites
ono man to ono woman, nnd devotes
tho love of ono individual sololy to an
other, is not af'ulfillment oftho require
ments of holy law. Lovo for one sin
glo person is idolatry, and not permis
sable 111 view ct the command lo love
ono another. They believe that lo'-e
is not it fatality to any one person.

lio" "n J 11,0 borno oul by the
'n''t if Au-t way in which they live.
On the contrary, they believe in the
control, guidance and discipline of the
iiiiections. iSo man can lovo ono wo
num, or vtVe reran, and bo a Christian.
Perfectionism requires a universality
of tho passions. They hold that "the
wholo matter of lovo and its expression
should bo subjected to enlighUned self
conirol nod should be managed for the
greatest good." In tho communities

the fathers und mothers, or, in other
words, of tho wisest and best members,
and it is often under discussion in the
evening meetings, and it also aubordi
ale to tho iiistitulii n of criticism. Tho
fathers and mothers aro guided in'
their nuttiiigc meiit by certain genert.1
prircipli!, which " have been worked
out, and aro well understood in the
communities. One is termed "the
principle ot the ascending fellowship."
'It it regarded as
mucn ueiter lor the
popular principle 01 contrasts, it is
well understood by physiologists that
it is undesirable for persons of simulnr
characters and temperaments to mate
together. Communists havo discover

THEIR VIEWS ABOUT MARRIAGE.
relations ure founded on various texts
of tho Bible, which they freely quote.
They hold that in tho Kingdom
Heaven tho institution which assigns
lie exclusive possession of one woman
to ono man does not exist, because
is said in Mttthew 22, "In the resur
rection they neither marry nor are
given in nutrrngo." Special compan
ionship founded in special affinities
may exist in the world to corao. Hut
thero is no exclusivencss. f The law
tho Jews. The abolishment . of the
marriage system is involved in Paul's
doetrino of the end of , ordinances.
The Sabbath is abolished in tho same
way.' Both marnogo and the Sabbath
are now unnecessary, loth may
defended on the ground of sanction
the decalogue. Marriage in pairs bean
the same relation to universal marriage
of Christ's church that one day in sev
en does to tho eternal Sabbath. Life

It is not an ' inevitable reqrrisitr IT. -1
tho same man should keop 'tho tiz .o
partner throughout tbo festivity." Tho
dunce goes on as well without nch ?
prohibition. Hence the - arguntent cl'
tho original quality of mankind, of :-o
quality of the soxes as Inoyip'ivnlio.
Such an analogy would restrict con
versation nnd every mode of inter
course to pairs. A man could talk on
ly to bis wife nnd the wifo only to her
THE GEOMETRY OF FREE LOVE.
They illustrate their views of mar
rage by the following proposition;
Supposo a. man A is .inurriod to a
woman I), and a man O to a woman D.
In Christ the union of tho wholo four
is first in importance, nnd the union of
the pairs secondary. It is not enough
that A is married to li, nmking the
dual unit A li, and C to D, making tho
dual unit Cl. Tho unit A B ought
to be married to the unit CD, making
tho qtitidruplo unit ABC D.. In tho
approach ond mar i ,go of the pair A B
to tho pair C D, it is tho dictate of the
duulty and self evident demand of
rm tun. that tho man of each pair
should face tho woman of tho other.
Physiologically they deem marriage
productive of great .ivils. They sum
up their chatges against it as follows:
1, It provokes to secret ad ultry, actual
or of tho heart. 2. It ties together en
matched natures. 3. It bunders match
ed natures. (

A Paris letter says of the restaur
ants at tho Exposition: '
Every nationality has a eeperate
building in the park whero its natives
deport themselves airily, and the civ
ilized European gorges himself. It is
a humiliating fact, which cannot bo
explained ethnologically, that - the
amount of patronago at these ' pluccs '
is determined almost entirely by the
girls who disnenso tho viands and
fluids. An Egyptian beauty, with
ardent-lidded flunhing eyes, tawny skin
and ripo voluptuous lips, bad it all her
own way at first. The vilest coffee
was retailed with impunity, and pas
sionato admirers swallowed it by the
pail full, and wished that they could
say a good word for Pharaoh in ' the
vcnacuiar. men more waa an ' im
portation of English girls with a sun
ny mountain gorge of hair on their
heads, and eyes that were blue and
calm and perilously deep. The Egypt
ir.n was deerted, and there was a rush
for nn English restaurant. Young
men of susceptible tomperamclits could
be seen with a sandwich in one hand
and a glass of pale alo in the other,
planting tho seeds of early suicide, and
sighing sadly between each distrrtrtod
mouthful. Presently como the Hol
landers with ustonishing high degrses,
both in the region of the neck and of
the ankles, and a great casqne of 'gold
fastened to their heads, und a vast
quanity of light muslin in unoxpectod
places. The novelty was irresistible
until the Bavarians produced a supe
rior article, and ci mmanded the fickle
patronago of the gallant "aorld. i The
struggle at present is botweer,: the
boauties of tho liuvurian bar and thoso
of Vienna. In the balls of the- latter
is tho dazzling creature supposed to
come from the Tyrol, and dressed In
the pioiurcsquecoslum'eofthat land -a
distracting emanation of bad lasto anal
fine ncedlo-work. Tho Russo, who
hands you a plate with her plump and
and wholesome fingers, had her day of
triumph, and there are slaves who yet
prostrate themselves in her presence.
