Heaven According to Spiritualism.
Mrs. Cora Hatch, the medium, at a recent “Spiritual Reception,” in New York, gave the following account of Heaven and the amusement and em ployment of angels. “She defined the constitution of so ciety in heaven, or spirit-land, and gave her hearers warning that their condi tion out of the body depended altogeth er upon their behavior in it. “The spirit land or heaven, she pic tured as a series of worlds, wherein the sympathies of minds find their precise level; where the mind that gravitates toward gross niatieralisn on earth finds itself associated spiritually with minds of the same bent; where the artist finds a religion of beauty, such as he pictures to himself here; where Mozart, Beeth oven, Handel and Hayfln, and all crea- tors of harmony, find their own class of j associates, all musical and harmonious,! and where the classes of intellect find their congenial spirit, with whom they associate eternally. Moreover, the! •pirits walk the earth. The drunkard, whose idea of plcarnrc is the orgie of : the Five Points, is quite as degrading j hereafter as here. His spirit accord-! ing to Mrs. Hatch, is a worm crawling j about the city’s paving stones —the low est stage of spiritual life, as he was the wotst type of physical degradation.— Heaven has beauties that are only vis ible to the more refined intelliircneos. — It has scenery, rivers full of precious stones, golden skies, things to warm the soul of the poet, and to give the artist a perpetual f'ea -t. So all good men. who follow truth, justice, and love, find boundless sources of enjoyment. Yet the means of reaching these highest and happiest localities, where the poet, the artist, and all good men go, lie within the reach of everv individual.— We who are in the body have the pow er to fix our degree of approach to this supernal bliss, by living holily and truthfully, as long as the corporeal body holds together. “Mr*. Hatch wound up with a sol emn exhortation to live with a view to future elevation. She then paused, and, after a moment or two, requested to know if her <■>. position had been sat isfaetory? There ware some disbeliev ers in tiie seats who were not satis de I. One old gentleman desired to know if amusements existed in the spirit-land? Mrs. Hatch replied that she had tried to answer those questions—-she could fay no more than she had uttered. The amusements of the next world consists of the pleasures each mind finds to its taste here. Somebody had suggested to her that Young: America might pine for fast horses. The amusements '■ such would he few. “Fast” young; men would find hi the spirit-world that their fast practices, in the flesh would come up before them altogether too fast to be thoroughly enjoyable. They would be ready to find their amusement In every thing else but fast life. In short, this class of persons were incontinently con signed to a place, the view of which might be a reminder of the conven tional Heads. Pure intelligences, how ever would find abundant amusement.” Judging Others. —“ Don’t judge others by yourself,” is a common warn ing; and yet the advice is generally nu gatory. Unconsciously every man judges of .others rather as his own na ture suggests, than by the real charac ter of the man whom he judges. One tnay see this in the theological creeds. The cruel man esteems his Maker to be as violent and vindictive as himself, and would not believe him to be God if he wore otherwise. The benev olent and mild tempered man, on the contrary, sees in the Deity a merciful and benignant Father. The worship ad Divinity of all nations represents to a degree the peculiar traits ami tempers of those nations. — George Law and Chauneey Schaf fer, well known K. N. politicians, are reported among the conversions in N. Y. city. We presume many of these Announcements are intended for hoax es. - Woßi.m.v Wisdom.— The editor of the New York Home Journal says; “Blessed are they who do not adver tise, for they will be rarely troubled with customers.” A P hintkr’s Toast. —Woman —tho fairest work of creation. The edition being extensive, let no man be without a copy. A Laugh. —How much of character lies in a laugh. It is the cypher-key, oftentimes, wherewith we decipher a man. P BIN TIN©!

LAW’S IMPROVED SHINGLE SAWING MACHINE! PATENTED JAN. 5, 1858. THE above Machine is now being introduced in the Lumber region; and as it is bv fir the most important immovement that has been presented for sawing Shingles, the attention of all persons interested in that branch of business is particularly called to its advantages. The inventor feels Justified in saying, that It will do smoother work, and more of it in a given time, than any other machine; It has been tested , and found to require far less ■power to drive it; It is easily adjusted , and not liable to get out of order , and may be readily operated by an inexperi enced hand; It works with gn at economy as regards timber , making more shingles than is usual from tlic same amount of bolts; And, what is better, it can be afforded at a cheaper j/r ice, all things considered, t/ian any ma chine in use. One of these machines is in operation at Rab liu s Mill, in Grand Rapids. An inspection of it and its work, by good judges, will at once sat isfy them that the inventor is justified in claim ing for his machine superiority over all others that make any pretensions to public fivor. Orders for machines, addressed to the under signed at Portage City, Columbia County, Wis., will receive prompt attention. 11-ly ‘ ROBERT LAW, Patentee. Call and Examine for Yourself!

Cambridge, April 21, 1844. I have .lead the Prospectus w ith great pleas ure; ami entirely approve the plan. If it can only obtain the public patronage long enough, and large enough, and securely enough to attain its true ends, it w ill contribute in an eminent degree to give a healthy tone, not only to our literature, but to public opinion. It will enable u? to possess, in a moderate compass, a select library of the best productions of the age. It will do more; it will redeem our periodica! lit erature from the reproach of being devoted to light and superficial reading, to transitory spec ulations, to sickly and ephemeral sentimentali ties, and false and extravagant sketches of life and character. Joseph Story. Nett York, 7th May, 1841. I approve very much of the plan of the “Liv ing Age,” and if it be conducted w ith the intel ligence, spirit and taste that the Prospectus in dicates, (of which I have no reason to doubt,) it will be one of the most instructive and popu lar periodicals of the day. Janes Kent. Washington, 27th Dec., 1845. Of all the periodical journals devoted to lite rature and science which abound in Europe, and in this country, tins has appeared to me the most useful. It contains indeed the exposition only of the current literature of the English lan guage; but this, by its immense extent of com prehension, includes a portraiture of the human mind, ia the utmost expansion of the present age.
