Mplrlttralism an Explained at (lit
Opera 1Ioum?.
A few years ago u man by the name o
Ellis came to thus city accompanied by i
young lady who passed for hi* daughter
She was quite an attractive person inap
pearance, decidedly robust and health;
looking, but nevertheless very spiritual
as the'sequel proved. She was a"inedium.'
She could do things of a very wonderfu
character. No odds how tight her hands
and feet were tied to the chair on whicl
he sat inside of the cabinet, she could, ai
soon as the doors of the cabinet wen
closed, summon around her a spirt
or two, and through their agenc;
ring bells, blow horns, play on the ac
cordcon, beat on the drum, and make it
different ways a hideous amount of noise
Her father claimed that she had
ministering spirit of some sort?the suji
posed spirit of a fellow who had gone toth
war from some town in Connecticut, am
fallen early in the conflict, and before uacl
evening's entertainment he went througl
a solemn speech in which lie recited th
origin, rise and progress (if the wonderfti
mediumship possessed by his daughtci
It was always a great mystery to him. II
had never been able to understand an
consequently could not explain how hi
daughter was able by the aid of he
familiar spirit to perform the mysterie
wrought inside the cabinet. All he knev
was that when the doors were shut thi
spirit was always on hand and the noisi
There were a number ot people who
attended the performances given by Ellis
daughter who really believed in her me
diumehip, and aBtill larger number who
neither believed nor disbelieved, who
were simply mystified and confounded
The fact that all of Ellis' movements it
the city were stealthy and suspicious, a?
for instance the fact that lie never advertised
his performances in the papery, noi
used any of the large halls of the city, bu
put lip little posters with his own hand
in an irregular way around the city, am
gavo all his entertainments in a privat
hall, escaped the attention of many per
sou* who were quite ready to he im
pressed by any species of supernatural
ism, but were carefully noted by thorn
who were on the look out for fraud am
sleight of hand.
Ellis'show had quite a run for severa
night#, and the wonderful performance
of his daughter were the talk of the towr
There soon came, however, reports o
exposures at certain points of the coun
try which they had visited, and where, i
seemed, sharp committees had solved tin
alleged spiritualistic element in thei
tricks, and where the atmosphere had be
come so hot and unhealthy that Kills am
his daughter had found it expedient t
leave in a hurry.
The denouement of their exhibitio
here was hastened by the enterprise c
Mr. Jacob Grnbb ami a few other citi
zens, who found that enough home taler
could bo speedily enlisted to get up th
same sort of performances without an
aid whatever from the spirits. And n
sooner had Ellis and his daughter lei
the city than these enterprising gentle
men did really get up a first claj?s pet
formance, in which the pretended super
naturalism of the business was shown u
in a way that will Iw long remembered i
this community. It was a blow frot
which Spiritualism hereabouts nevei re
covered, l>ecause It opened the eyes of
vast nnmber of people to the hollownei
on which the pretended mysterie
wrought by acceptcd mediums reall,
rested. This Ellis exposure, along witl
the exposure of the Davenport brother
in other parts of the country, devel
oped the fact that the so?called "dar!
uniinr>Aia" it ml "nnltini>l I'ftnilttSnnu" urn*
-imply cpvers to hid triokery and fraui
and that there was nothing what
ever in these mysteries that coul
not he easily explained and imitated i
only bo much as the ray of a candle wa
allowed to shine upon theui.
The great exposure in Philadelphia 0
the Katie King materialisation fraui
wan the crowning exposure that brok
the back, if not the neck, of Spirituals
tic jugglery all over this country; just a
(lie recent detection of the bogusness o
blade's slate aud pencil performances i
England, has about reduced the businec
iu that country to the level of fortun
telling, subjecting those who follow i
to tho penalties of the law ngains
vagrant strollers who dupe the ignorai
by cards and palmistry.
Our Wheeling people harilly needo
the series of exposures that have bee
given by Prof. Baldwin at the Opet
House for tho last two nights to confin
their faith iu tho emptiness of t!i
claims of Spiritualistic jugglery. II
tricks were well performed, am
a* far as they went, exposed vei
thoroughly the cabinet bIiows an
toaterialitation frauds of so-calle
umliuuiH. Tho Katie King raaterlaliti
tion was handsomely gone through wit
by the Professor's wife, and until explaii
ed was really t^uite a puzile. Ono poc
fellow thought he had found thesolutio
iu the person of an accessory who ha
entered the cabinet from the rear, and a
convinced was he of this that he took th
trouble to send up a note to this effect t
one of the committee. But the ProfeasorV

The Katie King trick iithe one that up
- set poor Robert Dale Owen, or rathei
the exposure of it unbalanced him after
he had staked his reputation on a solemn
* and scientific explanation an to KatieV

\ Of course the buainess of mediumshii
? will still go on in this an in other communiUes.
There will still be j?ople
who prefer to follow the lead of their lm?
aginations rather thau of their sober
J senses. Gibbon ban remarked in his
comments upon the early history of th?
Jews that they preferred to believe in
the traditions of their ancestors rathei
H than in the evidences of their own senses.
* This* remark of the great historian describes
the mental condition of many
1 other ]>eople beside the Jews. It in*
f eludes all persons who believe that the
spirits of dead people are going round the
country ringing bells and blowing horns.

General Key had a talk with a South

chance to talk, he asked the man who

"A colored man," was the reply, "who

Mr. Key asked if he mismanaged the

Il ?Then," said Mr. Key, "there are only
ti two ways in which he can be displaced
e without opposition from me. One is by
(j the Army of the United Slates*, and the
other is bv an order from the President

e Mr. Key followed this with the state*

Thompson arrived last night, and called

Democrats from Virginia. The latter nay
they are favorably imp reused with the

< l'roin tliO'fart that a soldier who killed
another, was, by order of Gen. De Trobriand,
turned over to the Superintendent of
i Nicliolls police at New Orleans, some
persons have supposed that this is a recognition
of Nicholls' government, but officials
say there is no political significance'
i whatever, in order of De Trobriand, nor
did any instruction emanate from Washington
concerning the transfer of t he soli
dier to the police.
Senator Blaine, in view of the possibility
that the President may not recognize
Packard or Chamberlain, is very
earnestly in favor of having, by consent
of all parties, a new election in Louisiana
nnd South Carolina, and Iiiih ho exported
himself to President Hayes. This,
Blaine believes, could be had by common
consent of all political organizations, and
could be conducted in a peaceful manner,
free from the entanglement of the Presidential
contest. The result of the elec,
tion, which ever party mighty prevail,
would, in Blaine's judgment, bring peace
and contentment to those, States more
certainly, perhaps, than any other mode
of adjustment now practicable. This
policy, Blaine thinks, would harmonize
all the elements of the Republican party
and secure, at the same time, the co|
operation of all the Democrats in the
South who desire a peaceful adjustment
, of the exiflting difficulties on an honora;
ble basis.
Senator Morton, Chairman of the Com,
mittee on Privileges and Elections, says
the majority report of that committee on
: the Kellogg c^se, although prepared, will
not be presented to the Senate to-day, and
the views of the minority cannojt of
course be submitted before the majority
1 report. The reaagn for delay in conjectured
to be that owing to the absence of
. the Kcpublican Senator* the Democrats
. constitute nearly or quite a majority of
them. Aa there is no other business
ready for action by the Senate, it will now
1 have to await the nominations or other
executive business.

nations to the Senate to-day: Lot M.

from the Court of Claims. In this* case
it is decided that the act of Congress, declaring
that eight hours shall constitute!
a day's worklor all laborers or workmen,
&c., employed by, or on behalf of
tho Government of the United States, is
i in the nature of a direction bv the United

over eight hours as a day's labor. When

is made, another receiver reccipta

the passage of the bill now pending
in that body for the creation of a bu- i
reau of statistics of the mining and in in- ,
eral resources of Ohio. JIe opposed the j

tain. Attention is called to the over- i
crowded condition of the penitentiary, j
and the unsafe and unwholesome character ]
of some of the county jails and recom- \
mendation is made that intermediate ?
prisons or workhouses for the confine- t
ment of the less hardened criminals ,
should at once be provided. The estab- (
lishment of district workhouses is siig- |
gested ax the most practicable solution of
the tramp question Kecommcndation t
is also made that laws should be passed i
to lHjrfect the organisation of the State r
militia, as the best protection against )
riot and destruction of property. The ]
message speaks in the warmest terms of j
President Hayes, and predicts for him a 1
peaceful and useful administration. i
In the Senate to-day a resolution was *
adopted providing for a join convention i
of the General Assembly on next Tues- t

A Memorable liny.
I/on don, March i:i??The Tiwm Bays
to-day will be memorable in the liiatory
of the Eastern question. The Cabinet
meets to consider the termiiol agreement
among the Towers. It does not contain
any engagement to use coercion in any
form. The Foweri will employ their
Diplomatic influence in favor of the reforum
that the Conference his decided
necessary, but further than thin they will
not go. No time in fixed within which
the Powers arc to use their influence,
or after which they are to consider their
efforts to have failed. When the proposals
which Lord Derby submits to his
colleagues have been accepted by the
other European Powers, it is expected
that Russia will declare herself, satisfied '
and demobilization will follow in due I
A protocol to be signed by the Porte ,
and countersigned by the Powers is a '
form of agreement which has found most
favor. The article continues: We believe
if England accepts this all the other
powers will; it then depends upon the 1
temper in which the Porto receive.1} the
agreement, and the acts which follow it, '
to show whether we ure on the path to {
final pacification. Hitherto the Sultan's .
government has show" ?o desire to come
to terms with liussia. We can only hope J
that the Porte will not, by action or inaction,
by purposeless defiance or ill- J
timed obstinacy, frustrate the sincere at- !
tempts of the o'tlier States to avoid war. !
There has as yet been no beginning of *
better rule, and the condition of the prov- 1
inces which were original seats of insur- 1
rection is pitiable in the extreme. The
Powers.will become once more sureties
for the Turkish government, and should
they fail the end must come at last.
Paris, March id.?The editor of Le '
Temp* had an interview with Ueneral i
IgnatiefT. He Bays: Ignatieft' declared *
that his mission was to obtain a formal <
ianction to the resolutions o( the Confer- J
ence. Russia held to their substance, ?
but, as regards form, would accept indif- |
ferentlyfloither a proctocol -emanating j
from the Bix Powers, or a diplo- *
uiatic instrument nigned by Turkey alone, <
but countersigned bf tin; Powers. The <
proctocol by making manifeBt the tirm re
?olve of the Powers to sec the reforms
Accomplished would give the proposals of
the Conference the form of positive assurance.
.Russia would not grant Tur- t
key more than two months grace for ex- t
?cuting the roforins. "When this time ]
expired the Powers would be no longer 1
bound to act collectively, but would be t
compelled in virtue of "the proctocol to ?
allow the free exercise of armed inter- 1
vention by one or more of the Powers. :
The (ieneral continued: Our desire 1
for peace is so strong that even if England 1
mly partially accedea to our views we
?hall not break oft'negotiations, but use
fresh eil'orts to obtain concessions. No
time, however, must be loHt. We cannot ?
leave our army inactive, we must either |
utilize or prepare to disband, lguatieft' |

A letter to the Time* frnm Ppm dnlml 1
March 8th, says: Many of the prisoners 1
vho were arrested tor alleged complicity
n the plot of Midhnt Pasha have been
liberated. Kemal Key, Midhat'a secreary,
is atill imprisoned and examined 1
laily by magistrates. The sudden tit of J
error which disorganized the whole gov- J
srnment and placed the Sovereign at the i
liscretion of a little palace cliquc is ii
lereby shown to continue. f
The Sultan's council is now more than
?ver haunted by fear of plots. The prevailing
popular idea is that the party
itrongly attached to Murml EQ'endi, are s
jusily spreading reports of his complete II
ecovery, and claiming his right to restor- n
ition. Murad's adherents declare that i
jotli Turkish and foreign doctors were o
manimous that two or three months rewee
would completely restoro his realon.
Their prediction has been fully
ealized. Murad is now far more fit for J
he throne than his drunken terror r
launted brother, and it is fully time {
hat they should change places.
