Two Thousand Table Tippers in the
Speeches of Cot. TaDmadge, Rev. T. L. Harris,
Judge Edmood*,
&c., Ac., Ac.
A call was published la the duly paper* for a mass
meeting of *pirituall*t* ? 1. e. persons who believe in the
new theory of communicating with departed spirit* by
means of tipping* of table*, knscks, and other physical
demonstration*? to be held last evening at the Taber
nacle. It was further announced that Mr. T. I.. Harris,
the autbor of a spiritual epic, Judge Edmonds, Mr.
Dexter, and other well knewn lights in the world of ma
terial eplrlts, would be present.
The announcement created a great deal of curiosity,
and at an early hour the Tabernacle wan crowded to
excess with sceptics and believer*. It wa* the largest
meeting of tbe season, and included all sorts of people,
impelled by all sort, of motives. At leant one-third of
tbe audience were women, from which susceptible sex
the new spiritual party draws its best media and Its
firme.t adherents. Some of the regular attendants at
the women's tights and anti-slavery meetings were
There was some dtlay In starting the meeting,
which seemed to be under the direction of
Mr. Partridge, editor of a spiritual newspaper,
and during this time a middle-aged woman in the
audience favored it with some remarks, more severe than
coherent. She denounced tbe spiritualist* and Judgs
Edmonds as a sit of devils. She had quite an audience
at first, but after ("peaking a few words she complied
with the request of a young man who earnestly urged
her to " simmer down."
The audience was getting rather restive, and somo
rapplngs, not spiritual, were heard in the gallery. At
this juncture Hr. Britton, a spiritual publisher, cams
forward and made an apology , for tbe gentleman who had
betn engaged to preside at the organ, but had not
appeared, lie called on Mr. Harris to supply his placo.
Mr. Harris did not appear, and there was a long pauae>
with more stamping and tome hlsxing.
Mr. UftrrroM again came forward, and said that the
vocal mu.io would be gives without an accompanimnnt,
and be done as well an it could under tbe circumstances.
Thereupon several ladies and gentlemen came forward
anri gave the chant?" How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of him that brlngetb good tidings!"
During the last part o( this performance there was
some disturbance in the gallery, caused by a pugilistic
encounter between two highly excited young gentlemen.
A large cumber of per.ons expressed audibly a wish that
these belligerents should be put out, an! " order reigned
in Warsaw."
The platform wa* occupied by some of the recognized
leaders of the movement, including Judge Edmonds,
Governor Tallmadge, Dr. Hallock, Dr. Orton, and others.
Rev. T. L. Hahrjh, a clurgyman of the Vniversahst
persuasion, came forward ami delivered a prayer, lie
blesred God for making spiritualism known on earth, and
prayed that further developement* m'gbt be wide, an I
that great good to men might rosult from tbeui.
Mr. Britton introduced ex-Governor Tallmaihir, who
Lamkh ant) Gk.vT1.kmbi? It ill with the greatest reluc
lance that I undertake to say a word this evening up in
the subject ol spir luliam; not a reluctance to apeak
upon the subject, but because my time :? ao necesiur iy
limited that 1 can neither u justice Ut the subject nor
to myself. It in, therefore, proposed merely to make
f me preliminary remark* before the gentlemen to whom
this duty ia aligned will speak; and these remtrk*
miiht of course be very desultory. The subject uf spiritu
alism has not been generally understood by a large por
tion of the community. There are tiro reasons, perhaps,
why it has not been wholly understood, and why so
many pre.,udices exist against it. The Grat is the course
taken by the public pn-sa in not presenting the fact*
connecter with it to the publie mind. In saying this I
do not aay it for the pur |"M?e of catting censure upon
the press, but merely to express my own regrets. Tee
conductors of the press have had reasnna satisfactory
to themaelves for withholding this information. Facts
bare been developed, in tbe course (f the investigation
of spiritualism, of the most aatouuding character.
They have exhibited phenomena the most extracrdinarr
in tae history of the world, and whether It be spiritual
or philosophical, it ia worthy the inveatigation of every
practical and intelligent mind. (Applause and hisrea.)
The time will come? and I predict that that time ia not
far distant? when the conductors of the public pres-i
will feel and know that thtir course has not been a cor
rect one, although they believed it to b* aucn; bat they
will feel the truth of what 1 aay on this occasion. There
ia another reason why spiritualism haa not b;en under
stood ? why the prejudices of tbe public mind hare been
so wrought upon ? it is because it has bet n denuuncod
liom the sacred desk also, and denounced by those who
have acknowledged they never luvestlgav-d the aubject,
who profess to know nothing about it, and who a'.ill have
undertaken to give, what they call light, in regard
? to it. Now, I undertake to aay that tb-MH spiritual
manifestations are in acn rdanre with the Ilible ? that
the Ilible proves thn manifestations, aud the nauifesta
Hons prove the 11 hie. 1 therefore maintain in allthia the
truths of the Ilible, although they have been ignore!
and denounced by many. We have had mo instance ? I
allude to an occasion iu the city of Washington? where
the It** v. I r. Butler? I speak of him merely because he
put Ins vie*s before the world, undertaking to contra
dic< these manifestation* ?
A Vmrc? A curious coincidence.
Mr.TALLMAUue? Aa I remarked, I will nut occupy more
than a lew minutes, and it is not my wish or intention
to go into a formal investigation of the subject. If I
had one or two evenings I would be enabled to do that
indie* to it which 1 find it Impossible to do now. 1 mere
ly intend on this occasien, during tbe few minutes al
lotted me, to read one or two communications on this
subject. It purports to be given through tbe rapping*
ami tipplngs. and is signed 'John the Moved," and you
will dud what ia pnt forth in it to be worthy of aertoua
consideration, and of the source frym which ft ccmes ?

The Rev. Tiiom>?j) i? Hakrci wrh the next speaker. The
following li the enbatance of hi* speech ?Freud*, hs
eaid, in the remark! I am aboat to make, I nhall try to
give you a compact atatement of what spiritualism in.
Spiritualism 1* twofold? subjective and objective. Under
the subjective there la that realm of pure thought
which tie intellect operate* on in all time*? that realm
from which genius ha* come forth to do It* mighty
work. There i* also an objective spiritualism ? an ex
ternal territory? sensible demonstration* of spirit* ?
facts? colld facts, and these facts serve as the bail* of a
grand inductive philosophy. (App'ause.) 1 a?k no
applause, aud seek no appiauae, for tne word* 1
utter aie worthy of silent thought. Wlen the
dltciplt* asked Jesus? '? Art thou be that should
come, or look we for another f" ? he pointed to
phyaical facts? to the blind made to see. the deaf
to hear, and so forth. Thus do we to ui^ht.
We siioply point to realities? to fact* which aidieai
tliemiehen to all; and we ask to be judged by the evi
dence* we produce. The facts of spiritualism are its
beet angummt. First, we a**ert our faith in mod?rn
splritusli-ui, becauae it is proved by rapping* which cau
come and do come from no other source than the world
of spirits. Much as them; raspings nre spit upon, in
formation is conveyed from the .-pint* through their
mean*. It is the speaking ej e, the letting heart, and
not the diapery of the persou we b> hold. You do not
judge of the stability of a thing by t tie mode in wuick it
is expret'ied. To us these spirit rapp ng* itomu as burn
ing and potent fact* fforn departed fiieuds. Thus
it was with thone who stoo l in the UleffrapK office
waiting to liesr news of the lost ones iu the wreck
of the Arctic. Have not our heart* been torn
by opposite theories as to the ev rUsting ungdiib of
the loved and cherished rues ? whether they had
?oue to heaven or paused to thi lake of fire ?
i hen we assert that a that a telegraphic wire runs out
and counects us with the world beyuu I. imny say that
if the spirit* will only help them to build up souu) eccle
siastical tyranny of their own, they will believe. But
the spirits cannot be used in Such away. The spirit*
prove that man it better then liin accident* and superior
to hi* creeds; and because they do tht*. men contend
against the-ui with appeal* ti the passion* and the fears
or multitude*. The question I una is whether iny de
parted friend* arc sate or not? We want to have light
on this subject. We have thousand* of paths arouud us
in all the confusion of Christianity, and do not know
which road to take As fathers snd mothers, a* wive* and
husbands, as children and li'.eudi, we go to the ipuitual
manifestations, and if our friend* do but speak, it is
enough. I stall be told that, after all, tlii* i* not practical,
I imy admit that the iplrits will n >t tell of tueh things
a* the accession of i.ouis Nepoleeu oi the storming of
i-obastopol But 1 ask whether It is not practical to
know that a dear departed friend ha* gone up to heaven
forever ami ever? And you, ye spirits above, ye deem
it prnctlcal to come hack to men and communicate the
ravishing realitit a of a better life. There are 300, 00<)
intelligent, n.en in America, who have publioly asserted
that the phenomena of Hpiritualhmi are occasioned by
spirits. We canuot explain the rationale of tne mode,
but we appeal, a* Christ did, to the fact* of tbe cane.
I ask, a* wan asked of old, has this thing been done in
a corner.' Not only in America, but iu Europe,
the man.fi statin* aro believed in. These be
lievera are gray haired men and woia*n ? they are
clerg.vu.in, physicians, im reliant*, mechanic*, anil
philosophers. Every cla.s iu soc ety, from the h>gae*t to
the lowest ? all bave yielded up their testimony to the
tiuth of these facts. 1 he rapping* have l?en hearl in
tl e moat crtw led assembles, and in the lonely midnight
cl amber. And what has been said through these com
munication- Millions of test answer* hare been given
to heart qut*lion* from the mill on* departed to the
millions jet iu this mortality. Deipiie it a-, some may,
it is as il the mighty heart of all ill parted spirits im
p? lied it ? love Urop? to our mortal spl ere, and left them on
the kite and bere.ived ones in this lower earth. It la said
that ?10, (M 0 k< nll? men ot Am. rica who did net believe
in the in.mt ? tailty of the soul, have been converted,
tlnough ecmmunicat ons with Hpirita, tub l.e! iu tbe
resurrection of tl e dead . I ask, if (tod's blessing i* not
then en tb.s caiif* '? We assert also that sp rit* actu
ally communicate without any visible intervention o
nied inn. One of the mt st scientific men in the world
told me. not long rince, tl at he lia l seen five sheet* of
paper laid down, atd five pencils grasped by Spirit >,
wrltiig out communic ation* untiled by mortal hanl.
(Exclamations ol incredulity ) If we relieve in the testi
mony of Ave hundred person* who lived eighteen hun
ured year* ago that Jesus Clir'st died, are *e not hone 1
to accept testimony to kindred facts coming, not from
Judeans, but from Araeri'-in*? ni"o wbo have gr"wn

not to eniesvor to demonstiate to you the reality of

Such it n9t my purpose. How tain, how futile would it
be for aoe to attempt it !? how idle and presumptuous tbi>
task when Clod himself has planted the testimony ia y our
midst, makes it spring up at your own fireside ! I come
not, therefore, now to attempt to demonstrate that, but
merely that I mar say to you wnat It U that we who have
Investigated Ihink wi- have dlse?>vered In relation to this
mighty subject, and I cam* In the hope that many who
haee not yet Investigated may new be Induosd, by the
result* or our labors, to begin their investigations.
There Is much tr learn kven the most forward among
us bare learned l.ttle of that which la so freely prollered
to us. The harvest la immaiue ? the field is great ? la

cation?the violence of religious dogmas ? the active hos
tility of fear- against tie most unhappy and palpable
ignorance of the sub. set, not merely of the world at
large, *>ut even nmongst ourselves. \Ve have to con
tend with our own fanaticism; for I assure you, from
my own experience am' observation, that the fascination
of this lutercour e in so great that Its ten lency ia to
lead tbe mind nwav from Its proper judgment, and instil
a spirit of lauKtici tn most revolting to tbe calm a ad
natural mind. We have also to contend again.it the
proclivities of the age to build theories. Theory after
theory is built In our ignorauce, and yet all
these things we are eomtsntly called upon to
struggle against, ana In t-.o doing we forget tnat all
truth is slow in Its progress with mankind and tbe more
impoitant aud vast the truth. th? more dillicult it is for
the human mind to comprehend and theorize upon.
How many thousand yeaw paused sway before one
truth ?a* acknowledged. wuich mankind were building
theories upon in regard to our4planetary system? How
often were w?ll established in ts thrown aside, In order
to sustain the theory that the earth was the centre of
the universe? A* length fact* tn?ugh were adlaced to
give the true philosophy to niatwiot). la I we ask now,
In reference to this grest subject, such aid ia its investi
gation that we msy obta.n facts enough upon which we
ran build some theory in repard to this mighty truth
It ia no matter In what form that investigation may be
prosecuted? wlietb. r a'. tke tabic with its uuiet rap

le it' In what foim it may. it Is the number of minds
I we wish to enlist In this matter. [Hie planetary dls
1 roveries made by thousands of telescope, were here
alluoad to as au illustration of this principle.) We ask
that intelllgint Bands of this country and of Christen
d< m shall devote to this subject also the same atteation.
that out of this wide spread invu.tigation, truth
may come There are many i|uestions in reference
to this whole subject of spiritualism, that the verv best
