To the People of the Tni ted States: The recent action of the maiorit? nf the legislature of MiasiseisDi. in oalliw- on the Presidect of the United Sta'cf for troops to suppress an alleged Ku,,-- rection in Warren conntv. in tb'sif.f demand from the unoersitr were a minority of that brj:. & ' .1.10. ment to vindicate their r ' CT.i.T? difcenUng from suo. nr.K18 good name and mme of the peor- - th Kf.,B fram . ha oa.nmuiuus - :..tt., tained in t' r ; X T ' and rei -JT-TT?!.."' j'awi the true condition of things here, w.tbout making this statement too long tor pjftular perusal. We shall make it as brief as possible; endeavoring ln the main to give a general summary, suffi cient, however, to afford a fair view of the present situation. The resolution of a majority of the legislature, calling on the President of the United States to suppress what it al leges is domestic violence, is acoompa nitd by a recital of supposed facte, which there is not the slightest evidence to sustain, and which there is the best reason to believe constitute a studied and unfounded calumny on the people of warren county, reflect peace aau or der reign iu that county now, and theie nas been no violence or bloodbed there, except what was occasioned by a manly defense of tbe people of Vicksburg against armed bodies of men. who, as we believe, werj, by tbe connivance of me governor ot tbe state, marcniug on that city tor the purpose of brincini; on a coaflict of raose.- When this attempt to i Evade the city was defeated, the citi zens ot viCKBourg laid dnwn their arms, and have since been quietly engaged in their ordinary business and avocations, and there has not been rince, and is not now, a scaoow of a suspicion of violence in their midst, l'he holding of the courts, and the regu lar process f law, have not been, and are not now, in anywise onstrueted in that county, or elsewhere in tbe State. There is not even tbe slightest resistance to the eoileotion of the most oppressive ana ruinous iaxarion, wnicn is now De nis reieutlcesly enforced, and which. when collected, will, in tbe main, be drowsed tor no public good whatever. We do not heutate to affirm that never, In the past history of the State, has there prevailed among its people a stronger love of Jaw and order, and a more patient submision to wrong, and a firmer determination, under all cir- onmstances admitting of legal redress, to seek for it only through legal means. The result of the recent elect tous in the northern section of tbe Union, has held out to us tbe hope of a speedy return to the rule cf an honest ana just looal gov ernment, and a full redress, by legal means, of art oar loeal grievances. And we have not been unmindful that anv irregular attempt on our part to redress grievances, however great, and to resent; wrong, however ItritaUng, would be represented by our eneraks (ud from these we do not feel authorized to ex clude hi any of our present nuaw), as the mantfeetatMB of a spirit of rehantoa and disloyalty to tbe national government. aim nence, tacuju we are now suser lag from a misrule, which is day by day wasting oar substance and paralysing the energies, and crashing the hopes and aspirations of our people, fa threatening anarchy by tbe banishment of all public spirit and private virtue from official life. We have fortorne to seek ndress other than by legal moans, when such means are attataabie. inspired by the hope furnished by recent maaifestatiens iu ine norm of sympathy and good wttl, that we were no longer to be treated as aliens in the land of our birth, or as uu wortby of tbe protection and confidence of our common government, and that once more fraternity and a feel union were to be established between the dif ferent sections of the country, aad that the old flag should once more be to us an emblem of national power aad glory. We have striven, and are now striving, ho to act that tbe expiring fUmes of sec tional animosity and hate shall not be kindled anew. The action of a majori ty of tbe legislature and of the governor, before referred to. places as, and as we believe desicnediy so. tn a false not-ttJou. and is an attempt to blacken the name aaa nunc 01 me people of tbe State. It is even more than tbis, being a deliber ate effort to Introduce into this State maruei law and the army of the Untoa, for the purpose of continuing in power tbe iireaent corrupt sovemmeat. bv stimulating into unnatural activity the pieiwiice 01 race against race, waie hsppiiy had becun to wane.

Tbe ojv- ixxmBiiy 01 law ieoau atta remon- wurftMoe and inv- ttglon was dsn led by (the .)perata previoaa que-1 Hon," nor was this action the result of the uwlbsratlons of the representatives of the people. Both the preamble and the resolution passed bv the msloritv wore oonoocted xs a party measure ln a seeret caucus of the msJorUy, and were then put through the legislature under toe pressure of party discipline and for ptrty ends, without the examination of a single witness, and against the evi dence furnished by tho written etale- roentoi peaceiul and law-aWUIng citi zens of both political parties, and of the ujgnoK cnaracter and standing, wlio were eye-witnesses of the transactions amut which thev testified. To show conclusively that th's action of ihn ornor and ofa majority of ihe legislature was conceived and carried out purely party considerations, we need but osil attrntlnn In tho fnt that the travernor himself, under tlm --oubunatou and laws or the United States, had amnio warrant and author ity to call for troops from the United States government when the legislature a not in session, ana neocn tbe call ing ot an extraordinary Session of that body bad no other ne than to make this action, whleh was taken as a party measure and to furnish to tho world a needed support for an unwarranted act by the. nu.uber of names nod officials committed to it. The msloritv who uisiaiueu tuia action was composed largety m coiorea metaoers, wnose pas sions had been aroused and whose nrpln. dice had been excited by the inflamma tory and caluminous proclamation and message of the governor, and in part by white men who were strangers to our people and alien to them in sympathy and interest, and in part of honest, though misguided men. who had not tue puoiic spirit to disobey in the inter est 'A truth and juatico the edicts of a party caucus. The governor, who Insti gated this action, is not even a citizen of the State, and is an utter'stranger to our people, and wholly ignorant and un mindful of their interest He was a United btates army officer and military governor of the State at the date of ita reconstruction, and while occupying ooui uiese positions, ne was elected to the United States senate. The ludiciarv committee of that body, composed of uis party menus, reported tnat ne was ineligible to the seriate, beeaosa he wa3 not a citizen 01 me state. He Is here as a mere political adventurer, with no other interest than such as results from nis belne an office-holder, and we nrn. sunie he would not deny that his Me- kuucu viiiriDui(j ill 11113 Dtate WOUld end with his official career. He !i sympathy for the peonle ovfwhnm ho rules, anu no otner mouvs to guide him " '""aujuira iuauu auvauce his privitO and nolitlcal fnrtnnp. nr.il that of his personal supporters. In more than one instance he has flagrantly vio- mieu iue coDsutnuon dv annolntlnsr tiia suppliant tools to office, whidi. bv the constitution, were elective by the peo ple; and in ono instance .made an ap pointment to such an office after the senate, a large majority of whom were his party friends, had refused to confirm his appointee, npon the express ground that be had no power to make the ap- wiuimeni nor me senate to connrm it. He has attempted to defile the pure er mine of the judiciary by assuming to control, before appointment, the action of his appointees to chancellorshlps in the distributing of the judicial printing among his personal friends, who, on the strength or that patronage, were to es tablish newspapers to advocate his cl&ildi to office. This has been done in oe instance, and, it Is believed, in others. He has on one occasion attempt ed ( though he failed) to control tbe de cision of a chancellor by allowing threats to be made by his friends that a decision adverse to his wibhes would cause an omission to send he chancellor's name to tbe senate for confirmation. He usurped the power to remove a chancel lor, in ex(.re-w violattou of the constitu tion, because that cbaneelier had made decision that he did not approve of. And he refused to appoint, dur ing the session of the senate, to nU the chancellorshlps but three, which would be vseant before the next session, in plait, violation of law, so that, as we have reason to be lieve it, he might retain bis control over them by the exereise of his assumed i power, not to send in their names for confirmation. And in no single instance. so far as wo are able to learn, has he in any official act or expression of private sentiment been betrayed into an exhi bition ot tne slightest concern for the in terest or welfare ot the people of the State. Under these calamities, with a hostile executive and legislature, who seem to be willing at any time to sacri fice the public interest to personal and partisan advantage, we feel that we arc autnorlzed to appeal to our leliow-citi-sens of all sections of tbe Union not to credit there calumnies, and to ask them to investigate tor tnemseives. Tne peo ple of Mississippi are utterly power less to defend themselves against tnese constituted rulers, unless we shall have the sympathy and irood will, not of any particular party, but of our rtiiow-citizens mrougnout me union. We are too much concerned here to save ourselves from local misgovernment and oppression to participate in the partisan contests which agitate other parts of the Union. We do not deny that there are occasional disorders in our midst, but we solemnly aver that in no part of the worio, anu in no age, nave mere been so few, under oppression so severe, and under circumstances of injustice, wrong anu insult so irntatinr; anu try. ins;. In conclusion, we beg to be al lowed, on behalf of the people of Missis sippi, to assure our fellow-citizens of all parts of tne union or our earnest desire for the restoration of fraternal and mu tual confidence, and that our people have no more ardent wish, nor sincerer aspi ration, than to be treated and trusted as equals in tne union, ana to be allowed to contribute their full share to tbe pros perity of our common country, and to tbe glory and -honor of the American name.

The cotton ring began buying early in September. on assurances whicb, it is believed, em- auaieu irom tne agricultural bureau. that the crop had been greatly iDlured by the prolonged droueut and bv the Intense heat of August. About the mid die of September the report of the ajril. cultural bureau of the condition of the cotton crop at the end of Ausuet was issued, snowing a determination of from thirteen to forty per cent, comn.irprl with the July statement, as seen in the annexed comparison: CONDITION 0F THE COTTON CROP PEK CENT.

Si These preposterous fimires were receiv. ed with indignation and contempt ty both bulls and bears. The former were disgusted because the aid whioh they expected from the bureau 'folks was so overdone as to defeat its intended effect. and which a more moderate statement of the effects of the drought would un doubtedly have produced A moment ary rise, caused by tne ellect of the bu reau report upon .Liverpool, was follow, ed by a steady decline, to which repeat ed efforts have failed to interpose more man a temporary cuecii. tt win be in teresting: now to take a look at the course of prices (which are madeon the basis of low miaaiinir uplands), commencintr on ine jionuay following tne puouoatlonof tne cureau reporu Kxcha'geU& THIS SPECULATIVE EFFORT at a recovery of prices was very strong in rovemoer, in tne expectation mat receipts in December would show a arge tailing off as compared with last year, but with the effect of little more tnan sustaining prices. The weather was at times so bad as lo prevent nick ing, and the rivers of the south and wtst, from the effect of the nrtlonced drought, were so low as to retard the marketing ot the crop. It must be ad mitted, however, that the monttarv fa- uuiues uiive ueea ample anu iue neces sities of the planters verv treat. At any rate, the receipts at the porta for toe past tnree montns nave oeen greater iuau ever oetore ror tne same period in the history of cotton. The short crop iiieorisis nave nau tneir iaitn sorely tried, as well as their purses eadlv de pleted. The bureau man has received sueh a shock that he has taken to his bed, and his November report was not forthcoming. He declared in October that the crop cooid not exceed three and a half million bales, and probably hopes that tho developments ot December will put him in better countenance.

They staited trade for tne season about the first of August, on a very high horse, but have seen their goods undergo a decline since that date of fully twenty per cent on an average. Many cotton fabrics are now sailing all lower prices than before the war. Standard sheetings have been sold at from nine to ten cents, and full mad der prints from seven and a half to eight cents per yard. But while the bureau cotton speculation has not checked the decline in goods, it has stimulated buy ing by English, American and Gkrmm spinners. France alone lias taken lesa cotton than last year. French mnnu- raciurers nave not appreciated official integrity and wisdom at Washington. But notwithstanding tho reduced de mand from France, the Quantity taken I out of the market exceeds by 186.000 bales tho quantity taken in the flint three months of tho lst cotton year. In another sense, however, tbe bureau reports have operated adversely to the speculation for a rise. Tney have pre vented a large "short interest" betas: made and kept out. J THE WEAKNESS OF THE IfABKET in tbe past few days, in which the long expected falling off in the receipts seems to bave actually becun. is due to the ab sence of any such stimulant as a "short Interest" would atlord. Thus the bureau ( seems to have stuck Its friends all around. The problem of the quantity of cotton grown in the United btates in 1S74 must soon be solved with a reason able degree of certainty. An Augusta paper compares JNoveinber, 187-1, with November, 1S39. It has been remarka bly dry throughout the south. It No vember, 1S39. our cotempoiarysays, the bed of the Savannah river at Augusta was plowed upand sown to turnips, upon which, when they stouid have been ready for gathering, there were thirty feet of water. Tho year 1839 was a re markable one for cotton. Tbe croo was swollen to the tben unprecedented ag gregate of 2,177,835 bales, against an av erage for the three preceding seasons of 1,524,980 bales. Tho averaeo of the crops of cotton in the years 1871, 1872, and 1S73, is 3.673,160 bales. A similar in crease in 1874 will swell the vield to 4.- 621,382 bales, and many estimates are placed as nigh as 4,500,000 bales, but probably 4,000,000 may bo accepted as tbe average of estimates. CROP ESTIMATES. It has been customary to take the re ceipts at the ports to January 10th, and double tbem, as affording a reliable esti mate oi tne wnoie crop, nut mo move ment of cotton overland, which is not taken into the account until the end of the year, has rapidly increased. The receipts at St. In) uis and Cincinnati to November 23th were 80.000 bales, asainst 34,000 bales for the corresponding period last year, xne total overland move- ment last year was 237,000 miles, an in crease of 40 per cent, over the preceding yeur, and it is reasonable to put1 it for ine current year a; 3bo,uuu bates.

A NBW ELEMENT MUD) his thlsyear entered Into the speculation in eotton nam ely.renorta monthly from Committees on statistics of the several eotton exchauires of the south. Upon the condition and prospects of tbe growing crop, -inese nave been luguonous to tue last degree. Even tbe Uai veston cotton exchange had the audacity to put forth in 0 ;t.ler.au estimate of the diminished yield of cotton in that State. It was with reference to these reports that a Liver pool paper remarked tnat "li me cotton crop dU prove to bo a full one. the sea son bat developed an unusual amount or mendacity. ' There has. however. been no unusual amount of croaking from the south, but it lias been organ ized, concerted, and consequently it nas appeared to oe greater, 'mere Is a nat' ural explanation of ail this. The south em planter, when his cotton begins to mature, and me time appicaciies wiien he must take it to market, begins to shout "Short crop," and the rivalry be tween the cities of the south, to attract cotton to themselves, induces their com mission merenants to take up. echo and re-echo this cry. For example, if Sa vannah were to say that the crop was a large one, and Charleston were to de clare the contrary to be true, Charleston would get tbe cotton at the expense of Savannah or, at least, the Savannah poodle think this effect would be pro duced, which causes substantially the same result. THE CROP OP 1874. Probably that section of the United States north of the thirty-third parallel never raised a oetter or a larger crop or cotton than in 1874. Much of the land wai enriched by overflows, and that section escaped tbe severe droueht which undoubtedly did cause much damage in tbe northern belt of the cot ton district. In that section, now so fa vored, the" cotton crop was last -year more or less a failure. And yet it has been impo-sible to get southern authori ties to admit that even there the yield has increased. The outherner is natur- ally-sbnll in cotton; he easily dece'ves himself in respect to me extent of the crop; and mis propensity nas cost nim dear. A southern newspaper recently Qxpmned tnat one cause or me impov erished condition of the south was the fact that her small capitalists had es hausted their resources in bulling cotton on tne JNew xots cotton exenange. SPECULATION NOW TURNS upon tne quantity or cotton to be re ceived at the potts in six weeks from Jnovemoer30th. They were for the cor re ponding period last year as follows: 1873. Bales. 1S71.

Cir cumstances do not favor during these ix weeks so large a voiume of receipts as tnat above indicated. In fact, a slight railing cu la already indicated. dry autumn was lollowed bv cold weather, which froze the head waters of the southern rivers and prevented sueh a rise ns is necessary to their free navigation by steamboats. The southern planters have marKeted a portion or tlielr crous sulnel. eut to provide means to meet their more pressing need, and, believing in a short crop, as most o' them do, they will naturally hold back the remainder of their product as lone as possible, in the nopij or realizing tne expected advan- tss Besides, the appliances of the .'outh for ginning cotton will not admit of the crop bing prepared for market mncti in excess or recent receipts.

A BOLD BAKU. Cnr Thieve ArreMl at West Point, 3iulpp! I heir Sodnj Operandi Cotton Tliftr G.ime. From the Went Point Times of Friday. During the present week our eneraetie oity marshal, Wesley Gore, has been kept busy assisting Professor De Faysen and Thomas Meally a couple of expert detectives in the employ of the Mobile and Ohio railroad In making arrests of a number ot well Known colored people of this place, charged with robbing cars on the road in this neighborhood of cot ton and other merchandise. Tho names of those so far arrested are as follows: George Warren, Wm. Kingsbury, Jor dan Ivy one of our city aldermen Van Hatfield, Henry Hoot'. Carv Young, and Vincent Petty, our county treasurer, tbe latter charged with receiv ing and selling come or the stolen goods, knowing them to be stolen property. This gang has been perating for some time past, but at last uas been unhoused throuirh the skillful management of the detectives above named. It seems that the mode of operating by the thieves was after this fashion: While a train of freight-oars would be on the track at the depot at night, receiving or discharging cargo, two or more of the rascals would force an entrance into a car. then close the door after them and thus be concealed until the train was put in motion, when they would open the door and throw out cotton bales or other packages of merchandise, while their accomplices would come along with wazuns and pick up and convey the stolen property to their storehouse.wbere tne marsed Heads or the cotton-bales would be cut out and new ones inserted. The cotton next day would be put on tbe market, and at once sold and 'the proceeds divided. Some eight or ten or more oaies navo been traced mat were thrown off at different times lately bo tween the depot and Colonel Mhoou's crossing, a mile below the city. Two of tneee Dales were, day belore yesterday, found secreted in the back-room on the premises of Vincent Petty, who has a store on Columbus street, and who is, we beliove, the aareut in this place of the colored mutual aid society. Other stolen oods were round in tne ttore or shop of ordan Ivy. After William Kingsbury, rho had served a term in tho peniten tiary, had been arrested add placed in jail, be made a confession to the officers, wiiicu leu to ine arrest oi nis conieuer ates. One or more, perna.s all, confessed the truth of Kings bury's statement, and made a clew breast of it, implicating others who have not yet besn arrested among whom the names of some white men are mentioned, uf course we re frain from mentioning the name3ofanv of those who are at Targe, but we have no doubt they will all be captured when proof enough is found to warrant their arrest. Vincent Petty, after spending Wednesday night in jail, yesterday gave two bonds in the sum of eicht hinnlrpi! dollars, to appear before tho grand jury, to account lor nts naviug in possession tbe two stolen bales of cotton found on his premises. The trial of the otherfive is progressing this morning, In the city hail, before Justice Taylor Squire Bap tist declining to sit on account, wele'arn, of his party relations to some of the priners, and deeming it more proper in him to let the trial be had before an other justice. If any new facts are brought to light, we will give tho par ticulars in our next. William Bodifer. a desperado vlmwsn serving out a sentence of teth years for ro Query anu attempt to murder, escaped from the Indiana State orison shnut daylight yesterday morning, by placing a ladder on a platform near the outer wall. Beaching tho top of the wall he decended a waterpipe on tho outside nnd made good his escape. Two other pris oners, his confederates, were attempting to follow him when discovered by the guard, who fired npon them, preventing their escii.e. The warden, Colonel Shu ler, has offered a reward of two hundred dolt .for tho capture of Bodifer. All the powers having accepted an in vitation to the International code con ference, Russia bnj issued n circular ask ing all to pretent their recommendations as to the lime of meeting. On Hie Way from JJf itirlstn-TlisTrnnes- steaud Centra Unllroil-3f tuf phi li rnmmtrs. From aa oceaaloual CorrepOnJn(.i Grenada, Miss., December 21. We left Memphis by the Mississippi and Tenntiee railroad, and not wishing to flitter its officers, but it is the smoothest and best toad In tho south. At Hernan do we found the platform full of cotton: cot much Irzprovernehtf the merchants, as elsewhere, not anxious to sell eoods except for cash. At Cold water the im provements have been great, and tbe merchant sem to have more vim. Our old Memphis-ratted Dr. Gabbert and lady preside over the destinies of the hotel, and know how to furnish the necessaries cf life in such condition as to be inviting. The platform was full of cotton at eenatoota more cutton man thev could shin. At Coma the mer chants were buying corn from the coun try at sixty-five cents a bushel. We fear some of them may have to buy it back ere another crop, and pay a great deal more for it. Como nas arisen PcreMX' like from the great fire only a few months asro, and has Intentions of rival ing her competitors. At Sardis there is a great stir about cotton, of whieh there Is a large quantity on band. It has Im proved greatly within a few years. Our frlentl Cook's c lurtbouse sets the town off, and her merchants are wide-awake men. Batesvillo has more than recover ed from the fire of a few years ugo, and is as important a point us any on the roau; nas as goou a set or merenants as cm be found, iota or cotton in and around their depot. From a glatice at all the depots there are over five thou sand bales on the road. At Grenada tho streets are blockaded with cotton looks like itdid during the war not less than two tticujand rive hundred bales. Tbe grangers and others are talking about Paving the Tallahatchie river cleaned out so steamers can again come to i'anoia and urenaila. ureat loss and damage most occur to cotton if not moved scon, as it lays on the ground. Grenada is im proving more than any place I know of. At all points Memphis drummers are met selling ail kinds and description of goods. Before reaching Grenada, we heard of accidents and delays on the MiifiUsippi Central railroad. There Is something wrong Jn the management of that road, as numerous accidents have happened to the trains; fortunate ly no lots of life. The employes of the roiul have not been paid for several months. Cotton lays for weeks with no transportation to carry it to market. Superintendent Burke, of the Missis sippi and Tennessee road, says be will ciean up nis roau or cotton in ten or tu reen days. Unless the Mississippi Cen tral furnish transportation, Memphis win get nan tue cotton at urenada. K.VTIC KING. ltio 2'Ii!ladlpbln Inqairer'H Statement or ma Recent Developments In tbe Katie King Affair. The Philadelphia Inquirer, of the eighteenth instant, published its prom ised statement in relation to the "ma terialization of the spirit of Katie King." It declares that a gentleman of means in that city name not given had regularly attended the Holmes's seances, and became convinced that the materialized spirit was very ordinary flesh and blood, and tbe whole affair an imposition, lie tuen determined to find the earthly habitation of the so-called spirit. The Inquirer says: Liitue by little lie ouietiy pioEediun in formation tnat enabled him to 11 ml a young lady whom he thought verv much resembled Katie King. Using the most detective-like skill, he followed his clew up successfully. By certain pe culiarities which he observed iu the Ka tie of me other world at the seancei, he found that a young woman who resem bled Katie generally, and had her pecu liarities, took ber meals with great regu larity at a cersin nouse which ho had "piped off," in detective parlance. He then shadowed this woman, and found tnat sue attended ail tbe seances at the Holmes's house. He ultimately concluded to scrane aa acquaintance witn ivaue m me neaii, cnoosing, as an auspicious time, an hour when the lady or materializing tendencies Had been rendered happy by a good, square, world ly meal. The first interview was a fail ure: the supposed Katie protested that sue "did not believe in spiritualism: declared that she "had seen the mani festations at Holmes's but once, and, so far as she knew, they were all right." These assertion0, however, did not satis fy tne earnest seeKer alter, truth. and - various schemes, devices, plans and promises were resorted to in hope of discovering some of the many "ptesents" that hud been made to Katie- Through patience, perseverance and certain considerations one present was prouueeu., this satisued me gentle man that he was in the right place. more patience, perseverance and prom ises, and out dropped another, and so on until a small table was covered with rings, lockets, crosses, beads and robes worn in tie different "spheres" from which "Katlo had so kindly descended to visit mertuls at so much ver cavila. The oiiject of the gentleman's efforts was to bo narrow down the evidence of fraud that he might be ablo to "knock the bottom cut" of the humbug at a blow, and here was his object attained. Here was not only the veritable Katie ivtng weepingly acknowledging her du plicity, but producing "material" evi dence of it in the shape of all those little tokens of regard which she bad been fondly believed to have borne off In her spirit shape to her abode in tbe other "spear," as mo3t or tue "allected" term It The presentation of these conld not possibly fall to convince the per son who had given them to the spiritual Katie that the latter had a place of deposit on this planet for her valuables, so that course was deter mined unon. All who are acquainted with Hon. Bobert Dale Owen and Dr. Henry T. Child, of this city, will not hesitate to say that they are honest, up right, truthful men, but, like tho rest of humanity, they were liable to be de ceived. The party who had made the discovery consulted these gentlemen. showing them the "presents" which Hallo had kindly loaned him. They having beeu identified with the mani festations from the flrst, wero considered, when the fraud was discovered, the proper parties to denounce them. One word irom mem casting a doubt on tbe reality of the thing, would have more ellect upon the public than flfty expo sures gotten up by outside parties. More over the spiritualists, who wero the real victims, were supposed to have unlimit ed confidence in the integrity of these gentlemen. With commendable prompt ness they immediately sent to the Ban ner of Light the curds recently copied into our columns announcing the with drawal of their confidence in the mani festations. In order to make the con viction absolute on the port of those who bad hithei to indorsed the manifes tations that the "materalization" pro cess was a most barefaced humbug, the gentleman improvised a seance. Pro curing a suitable apartment, to wnicn he invited a number of Katie's friends, the gentleman prearranged with the lady, who now acquiesced in bis sug gestions for her appearance, dressed in tne gauzy lauries and otner trappings she uoed to disport herself in at Holmes's shows. She did so, a sort of cabinet be ing hasdy improvised, and the exposure ww rendered complete, beyond a chance of cavil or dispute. As a result there are a few spiritualists who are better and wiser men and women, and, aa a still better result, a check was administered to a most dangerous excitement, which was beginning to affect the minds of thousands of superficial thinkers, as it had already weakened those of many men anu women wno believed all too willingly In the trickery of designing. greedy New Yorkers, of the true "Yan kee stripe." Tho woman who person ated Katie King has already returned, as far as possible, all the presents she re ceived to those who gave them to her. She deeply regrets her part of the swindle, and If all the facts In the case could be made public,she would be freely forgiven by those who wero duped by herald. So ends one-ofthe most suc cessfully conducted swindles thaT hna ever been imposed upon the American phbllc. From every part of tho country and the Canadas persons came to this l . . .fit. -rr t . , ft 1 - l uiijr iu ose ivauo xung. uiuwiiik ac counts of what they saw and heard were sent to their local papers, ami the "phe nomenon" was publicly discussed acl talked of until It formed one of the lead-; Ing topics of the day among persons of an classes, tuo narm mat nas been done by this wicked humbug fafflcaleu la&1r, the happiness of whole families having been, in some instances, de stroyed. For causing a termination of these disastrous influences, the gentle man to whose keen intelligence, cool ness and persevering effort the exposure is dne, has placed, not only this com munity, but those of other cities, under lasting obligations.
