Spread of Infidelity.
Yesterday, (March 31st.) was the twen
tieth anniversary of the birth of Spiritua
lism as a form of faith, and was duly cele
brated in Boston—the ismic centre of the
country—in this city, and elsewhere. Im
peachment and other more pressing mat
ters preclude detailed reports of these
■movements in our columns, but the pro
gress of this comparatively new faith pre
sents certain phenomena worthy of record
:*nd of these the strangest is that .Spiritu
alism has made distinguished converts
among those who, a generation gone by,
where the disciples of Tom 1'aine, or in
.üdela believing in no deity and no after
From small beginnings it is claimed
■that the faith now includes a. fold of more
than four million believers, and the works
■of A. J. Davis, one of the leading ex
positors of this faith, are now translated
into German and other European langua
ges, and find numerous readers. By a
curious coincidence the same week which
witnesses the celebration of the Spiritua
listic Anniversaay is marked also by tli
establishment in this country of the
" Church of Humanity" by ono of Com
te'ir chosen apostles, Henry Edger. The
disciples of Corate neither admit nor reject
the existence of a deity and future life.
These new religions, or old forms of faith
new phase-, are signs of the times
whicli merit notice as mere matters of
news. —AY to York World.
Giikat Decrease in Incomes.— The
New York Evening Post announces the
very significant fact, based upon informa
tion received from the assistant assessors,
that there is a general, though very irreg
ular, decrease in the income tax from last
year, and the nggreate tax of that city
will fall off more than twonty-fiao per
cent.

of grains to a hill, and every grain is
