Rv. Mr Thayer, of the Presbyteriun

Indeed, by admitting that "mediums''
were controlled and spoke by inspiration
of evil spirits, ho admitted nil that it
claimed by intelligent spiritualists : tlst
their faith proves there is n

man occular, verbal und physical

only asserts, nn the evidence of men long

as Mr. Theycr assorted spiritualism will
evidence of immortality, by conversation
with oven evil disembodied ' spirits, nnd
you will havo lifted from tho human heart
u groat weight and have conferred upon
mankind a great Mossing, Aftor such
proof man would bo no longer a gropor in
