Spntuaiirji at Saratoga-Gen Webb and
Professor Hare
[From the New York Courier and Enquirer J
Saratoga, Sept. 5, 185fl.
W a had a strange scene here yetterdav in
the ladies parlor. Protestor Hare is here
and mad as a March liar* on the Ufaject of
hIii'Tw'h' ll* ,ectarc(1 at Metropolitan
?Wednesday evemng epon what he
fans tbe evidences of immortality and I
saw among tbe audience Mr Joseph GriaLell
and Gen. \V ebb evidently listening attentively
and yet laughing at the exhibition
1 esterday afternoon the Professor, who is
scventy-f veyears cf ago, and has, all his life,
been mi open and avowed skeptic, ridiculing
and batthng against all religion and revela
tion, proposed to give a lecture on spiritual
ism m the ladies parlor. Nobody objected :
and old and young?christian and atheist?
? t down to listen. The age and high stand
ing of the Professor, and respect for his pa*t
i character, commanded the respect of all pres
ent; and when he solemnly assured ihe au
dience that be embarked in the investigation
of the subject simply to expos? and destroy
wba* ho considered an absurdity, but that the
spirits ef his father, brother, sister and friends
. a entreated him to listen to them
whilo thoy gave him evidence of its trutb. he
evidently made a deep impression upon all
present, especially the youthful and those wh?
did not know that he is, and ever has been
the open scoffer at all revealed religion.
At this stage of tho proceeding, lien. Webb
arose acd inquired of the Profossor, whether
la his lecture the evening previous, in his
pub.isned booK, and his conversations on the
piazza of the hotel, he had not proclaimed,
that spiritualism as understood by nim, neces
sarily involved a renunciation of all hclief
in tnc lit hie and in revealed Rihgion ' At
this the Professor flow into a passion, declared
the interruption impertinent, and said ho
would not be catechized (Jen. Webb aid
that in his own lecture-room on tho prcceain,;
evening, ho bad not presumed to interrupt
him ; but that here, in tho par'or of a joit l
common to all, it was his right so to do, and
to put the unsuspecting and tho youDg per
sons present upon their guard. The Professor
was very angry, but finally promised that
when through with his lecture he would an
ucstions Gen. Webb replied, that as
tho Professor had proclaimed it to be the duty
of every honest man, to inquiro after and
elicit truth, eo in his judgment, was it tho
duty of every Christian man, to exp'-*o and
correct error ; and that having given tho cau
tion, he was content to wait until the Proles
sor had finished.
Upon tho Professor's closing, (ion. Webb
xo5o, when immediately the Professor insisted
that he should not be heard because he had
interrupted him but finally was compelled to
be quiet Gen. Webb then said?d<? not
intend to a.-k any qucetionsof Pr<>fe.sor Hare,
whoso ago and position eutitlehim to our pro
found respect; but I desire t'> make a st it?
inent to you 1 heard tho Professor lecture
l ist night. On that occasion, on tho piazxt
ot this llotcl. and in bis book now lying on
that tablo, he has proclaimed on the author
ity of the spirits of Washington, Franklir,
Adams, Chalmers, Clay, Jackson, his own
lather and a host of others, that there i3 not
<?no particle of truth in the Bible or revealed
Religion ; but that the whole fabric of Chris
tianity is an imp'.-ition upon the credulity of
mankind It I misrepresent tfao Protestor 1
hopo ho will correct mo." The Professor rdm
ply bowed. Gen. Webb then contiuael,
" Early in life I was in tho same law office
with Judge Edmonds, who is the head and
Iront of this offending "
Profes>or Hare?I deny that
Gen Wkbb?I yield the point My brother
married Judge Edmond s sister, and i have
known and respected him from boyhood I
mention these facts to show that I speak ad
visedly when I siy that Judge Edmonds, who
is at least an older convert to Spiritualism
than 1 rofessor llare, and who is considered by
the public as the chief of the sect, has always
assured his friends and relations that be too
has consulted the spirits of Washington'
rranklin, Clay, Kent, and, in short, all tho
worthies named by Professor Hare, and thnt
they, one and all, assure hint that there is
nothing in Spiritualism which conflict- di
rectly or indirectly, with ike religion oj ike
hihle. Now, I have the gre.ite-t possible
respect for the veracity of both Judge Ed
monds and Professor Hare, but, -when I ficd
them differing so widely in regard to what the
opiritd declare, I have no alternative but to
believe them acting under some strange delu
sion or to supposo them guilty of falsehood
and deception, or to assume that the spirits
with whom they commune are lying spirits
whose testimony is not to be relied on, and'
more particularly, when all their teachings
aro at war with the teachings of the Saviour
oj the world. I have nothing more to say
and leave the Professor to make any exnl mo
tion he pleases *
Professor Hare then proceeded to explain
that the spirits with which Edmonds cc.nversos'
are lying spirits ; and that they had tried to
deceive him also, but that he was too much
lor tLem He had told Edmonds so, and tried
to convince him that Spiritualism proved the
falsehood of what we call revelation !
Duelling.?The South Side Democrat has
some sensible reflections ia regard to " public
sentiment in Virginia on the subject of duel
ing. The inconsistencies of that public sen
timent are happily pointed out. If. for exam
pie, a challenge is declined, it is regarded as
evidence of want of courage, no matter
whether the party challenged has the imperi
3us claims of family pressing upon him, and an
acceptance would wring the devoted heart* of
loved ones dependant upon him for subsistence
md happiness. If the challenge is accepted
and the parties figtit, but do not wouud or kill'
the public considers itself swindled; if one
falls, the survivor is eternally damned aj a
murderer.
The wuger of battle in theso dayj is about
is reasonable as the old modeof trying witches
The accused was thrown into a pond, and if
she sunk she was innocent; if the came to the
top, she was guilty, and forthwith hung If
wen decline to fight, or fight and do not kill
Lhey are pronounced guilty or oowardico ; it
Lhoy kill, guilty of murder.
Woman.?Tho obstinato woman goes to sea
in a band-box.
The patient woman roasts an ox with u
burning glass.
The curious woman would like to turn a
rainbow over, to see what thero was on tho
jther side
The vulgar woman is a spider attempting to
spin milk.
The cautious woman writes hor rromisc: on
i slate
The envious woman kills herself in endea
voring to lace tighter than her neighbors.
The extravagant woman burns a wax can
dle in looking for a lucifer match.
Tho foolish woman loves golden dress better
than sparkling diamonds of the heart.
Ho, for Nicaragua !-0n Tuesday evenin
there was quite a display of the new company
raising fur Walker's Empiro. The line *i'
march was formed on north Cumberland street,
no. ill, preceded by a violin with a long bott;
each membor was smoking three segars at the
timo. We admire their boldnesa, considering
only eight persons composed the company
No doubt many fell in the ranks ere they
reached their quarters Having a oauseway
of pipe stems to cross before reaching their ul
timate destination, some of the party will call
on the Insurance Companies to-day to guard
against pedal extremities.?Norfolk (Va.)

Teach and Honey a Gentlemanly Drink
Old Judge Cole, of Texas, was character
ized by his attachment to that soductive be
verage called peach and hnney, and by bis
hatred of whisky and whisky drinkers Whi!?
holding a court at Austin, two oes were
brought up on a charge of a drunken affray.
It was a plain case , the row had oocurred in
the public street, in open day, and there were
fifty witnes.-es to the whole transaction. S>
the ?wn delinquents pleaded guilty, by the
alvico of their counsel, and threw themselves
on the mercy of the court They were then
brought up for sentenoe separately
" You are guilty of an affray," growled the
Judge.
"res. your Honor," whined the offender,
thoroughly frightened.
' i>runk, I suppose," granted the Judge.
" Yes, your Honor." murmured the priso
ner, with some faint hope that having been
drunk would mitigate the punishment.
" Drunk on rye whisky, too, I'll warrant,"
roared the Judge in a voice of thun-ler
" Ye?, your Honor, drunk on rye whisky."
il Mr. Clerk, record a fine of fifty dollars
against this man," cried the Judge, "send
him to jail for sixty days. I shall fine the
next one who is guilty under such aggravating
circumstances, a hundred dollars, and send
him to jail for six months ''
This was poor comfort for the unfortunate
fellow who was waiting his turn, and now
came forward with fear and trembling. As
he passed along by his lawyer, that thought
ful gentleman whimpered in his ear : *? When
the Judge asks you what you got drank on,
tell him on peach and honey " He took his
stand.
"You, too, are up here for an affray,"
growled the old Judge, gnashing his teeth, as
if he would like to bite tne culprit at the bar.
'? Yes, your Honor "
" Drunk, too, 1 suppose."
" Yes, your Honor; sorry to say it?drank?
very drunk."
" Drunk on rye whisky, too, I suppose?"
44 Oh, no, your Honor , 1 never drink whis
ky. Ig ot drunk on peach and honey "
The Judge's featuros relaxed in an instant.
Leaning forward and raising his spectacles, he
contemplated the offender with interest, and
then with something like tendernoss.
"Ah! sir," siid the Judge, blandly;
" peach and honey, eh ! that's a gentlemanly
drink, sir The oourt sympathises with you,
sir, and does not rogard your offenoe as very
serious. Mr. Clerk," he continued in a soft
ening tone, " enter a fine of one dollar against
this gentleman, and discharge him on pay
ment of cost."
ty* The following quotation from De Wuin
cey e " Literary Reminiscences," miy admit
of a moral signifisation :
"The native Dale<man. well aware of the
fury with which the wind gathers and eddies
abwut any eminence, however trifling its ele?
vation, never thinks of planting his hou*e
there ; whereas, the stranger, singly solicit
oni about tho prospcct or the range of lake
which his gilt saloons are to command, chooees
his site too often upon points better fitted for
a temple of EMn? thsn a human dwelling
plaoe; and he belts his house with balconies
and verandas that a mountain gale often tears
aw ay in mockery."
The King of Naples has become &o
strict with regard to outward signs of rerubli.
can ism. that he will not allow the ladies of
that city to wear plaid with red, white atd
blue stripes, nor ribbons ot the same colors;
and he has even ordered all the turkeys, bens,
and chickens, which have trio? lo red feathers,
to beaaiaad and slaughtered."
