Fifth Avente Hotel,

A change has come over the spirit of the
dreams of the womon of New York. A
more independent gait is noticeable among
them, and an air bordering on disdain, as a
member of the opKisite sex, accidently
crosses the line of their vision. A new dig
nity and self respect sit enthroned on each
countenance, all since last Saturday week,
when the Evening Post announced through
its Iondm correspondent, tho wonderful
discovery of Harriet Hosmer, consigning
Ellison and all tho great male inventors, to
a secondary rank, while she takes the head
of the class, if having been left to a woman,
one of tho despised sex, to discover tho

A case of the development of remarkable
genius, or something more, has recently re
vealed itself in a young girl of
this city, Miss Ida Estelva Hutchings,
daughter of the mathematical genius, Prof.
Hutchings, known as the lightning calcula
tor. This girl who owing to delicate health,
has never lt n tilde to attend school to uny
extent, a year and a half's tuition, probably
comprising all of the instruction she has
received, and consequently almost without
education, has suddenly developed a power
to do a thousand things, which she has
never learned. She sieaks different lan
guages, both living and dead, produces
beautiful poems, sings like a nightingale
although her voice is said to have always
been -weak, and sfie never received any in
structionnot only soprano, but contralto,
tenor and even bass, and in different lan
guages, and in a manner, generally attain
ed only after years of study, improvising
both words and music; and she recites like
a queen of tragedy.
Her own explanation and that of her fam
ily, is, that she is taken possession of by
spirits. She doesn't go into a trance, but a
silent invocation of any of her familiar
spirits, is supposed to bring them. While
under their presumable influence, she also
assumes their peculiarities to a great
extent, in appearance. For instance, as an
Indian, her features are drawn, so as to
hxik like an uWigincj as a Chinese, her
face is transformed into the countenance of
a celestial, almond-shaped eyes and all. She
and her friends claim that these manifesta
tions arc of a higher order of spiritualism,
and they repudiate the regular spiritualists,
who do not believe in Christianity w hich
they rigidly maintain. Her poems, sho
claims are inspirations, from Poo,' Bryant,
Mrs. Sigourney, and others. As I am not
a believer in spiritualism, I simply tell the
tale, as it appears on the surface, giving
her claims, and leaving it toothers to deter
mine the causo of the phenomena, which
is certainly remarkable, if what is said of
her having no education is true, and in
deed would be remarkable if she had re
ceived clalmrate training.
