THE DAVENPORTS. How They Perform Their Wonder ful Trivka. From P. T. Barnnm's "Humbugs of the WorId."J " Omne ignotum pro merifiou "Wonder ful, because mysteriuus. , " The Davenport Brothers are natives of Buffalo, New York, and in that citjr commenced their career as ' mediums ' about twelve years ago. They were then mere lads. For some time their opera tions were confined to their own place, where, having attained considerable no toriety through the press, they were visited by people from all parts of the country. Uut in 1800 wiey were inauceo. hv John J. Coles, a very worthy spiritu alist of New York city, to visit that me tropolis, and there exhibit their powers. Under the manaeement of Mr. Coles thev held 'circles' afternoon and eve ning for several duys, in a small hall at 195 Bowerv. At the request of the 'con trolling1 snirit.' made through a horn, the hall was lighted at intervals during the entertainment, at which times the mediums could be seen seated at the table, looking very innocent and demure, as if they had never once thought of de ceiving any body. Un one ol these oc mainns. however, a policeman suddenly lighted the hall by means of a dark lan tern, and the Doys were cieany seen wuu instruments in their hands. They dropped them as soon as they could, and resumed their seats at the table, Satisfied that the thing was a humbug, il, audience left in disgust, and the policeman was about to march the boys tn the station-house on the charge of swindling, when he was prevailed upon to remain and further test the matter. Left alone with them, and the three seated together at the table on which the instrument had been placed, he laid, at their request, a hand on each medium 8 head; they then clasped both his arms with their hands. While they remained thus iituated (as he supposed), the room being dark, one of the instruments, with an infernal twanging of its strings, rose from the table and lit the policeman several times on the bead. Then a strange voice, through the trnmpet, ad vised him not to interfere with the work of ithe spirits by persecuting the me diums. Considerbly astonished, if not possibly scared, he took bis hat and left, fully persuaded that there was " some thing in it." The boys produced the manifestations by grasping the neck of the instrument, awinirinir it aronnil and thrusting It into different parts of the open space of the room, at the same time vibrating the strings with the forefinger. ; When sitting with a person at the table, as they did with the policeman, one hand could be taken off the investi gator's arm without knowing it, by gen tly increasing, at the sme time, the pressure of the other hand. It vas an easy matter then to ruie and throw the instrument or talk through the horn. To secure greater immunity from de tection, and to enatiie tnem to exniou in large halls which could not be easily darkened, the boys finally hit upon a " cabinet as the best thing in which to work. They had some time before made the "ropewst a feature of their exhi bitions, and in their cabinet show they depended, tor success in deceiving, en tirely npon the presumption of the au dience that their hands were so seoured with ropes as to prevent thPir playing upon musical instruments or doing what ever else the spirits assumed to do. Their cabinet it about six feet high, MEMPHIS, TEtf N.I six feet long and two and a half feet deep, the fron consisting of three doors opening outward. In eBch end is a seat with holes through which the ropes can be passed in securing the mediums. In the upper part of the middle door is a lozenge-shaped aperture, curtained on the inside with black muslin or oilcloth. The bolts are on the inside of the door. The mediums are generally first tied by a 'committee of two gentlemen ap ptfuted from the audience. The doors of the cabinet are then closed, those at the ends first, and then the middlo one. By the time the end doors are closed and bolted, the Davenports, in many in stances, have succeeded in loosing the knots next their wrista, and slipping their hands oat, the latter then being exhibited at the aperture. It does not take the mediums long to draw the knots close to their wrists again."- They are then ready to be inspected by the committee, who report them tied as they were left. Supposing them to have been securely bound, those who witness the show are very naturally astonished. Sometimes after being tied by tire Committee the mediums cannot extri cate their hands and get them back as they were ; in which case they release themselves entirely front the ropes be fore the doors ' are again opened, con cluding; to wait till alter "the spirits" have bound them before showing hands Or making music. ! It is a common thing for these im posters to give the rope between their bands a twist while (heir .limbs are be ing bound, and that movement, if dex terously made while the attention of the committee-man is momentarily di verted, is not likely to be detected. Re versing the movement will let the hand out. , I The great point with the Davenports in tying themselves is to have a knot next' their wrists that looks "fair and square," at the same time that they can shirt it and get their hands out in a moment. If flour has been placed in their hands, it makes no difference aa to their getting those members out of or into the ropes; but to show hands at the aperture, or to make noise on the musi cal instruments, it is necessary that they should get the flour out of one hand into the other. The moisture of the hand and squeezing packs the flour into a lump, which can be laid into the other hand and returned without losing any. The little flour that adheres to the hand can be wiped off in the pantaloons' pocket. . The mediums seldom, if ever, take flour in their hands while they are in the bonds put upon them by the com mittee. , i . ." The principal part of the show is after the tying has been done in their own way. Mr. Fay, who accompanies the Davenports, is thus fixed when he hypo thetical spirit takes the coat off his back. As I before remarked, there are several ways in which mediums tie themselves. They always do it, however, in such a raaner that, though the tying looks se cure, they can immediately get one or both hands out. Let committees insist upon untying the knots of the) spirits, whether the medium! are willing or not. A little critical observation will enable them to learn the trick. If the Davenports were exhibiting simply as jugglers, I might admire their dexterity, and have nothing to say against them)but when they presumptu ously pretend to deal in "things spirit ual. I consider it my duty, while treat ing of humbugs, to do this much at least in exposing them. A Cinelnaittl Woman Trying; to Die , pese or Her Nick lluabniid. i From the Cincinnati Commercial, Feb. 13.) There is a fearful scandal in circula tion over in the Thirteenth Ward, in which, however, tbo " drug store club " of gossips seem to believe, to the effect that a certain corpulent wile1 appears over-anxious to nasten me permanent absence of her invalid but absurdly tena- cious-of-hfe husband. It is related' by thnRR who have invaded the sick cham ber that she has prepared for him, and occasionally airs in nis presence, the neat suit in which his corpse will be dressed. " if I should bo so unfortunate as to lose vou. my dear." People who hnvn heen culled to sit UD with this ob ject of conjugal solicitude, state their be hef that he is being aiowiy, dui surelv enouL'h. friiiktened and starved to death; that the moment ' his wife re tires for the meht hie weakv noiio voice is heard imploring for just one square meal of cold turkey or. some spiced oysters, whereas he is never per mitted anything stronger man a very mild form of beef tea. Not long since, report has it, the invalid was mean enough to rally in spirits, and appa rently in strength, aud one fine day to ask for an airing on the avenue. Forced hv hiii nlaintive BDDeala. and "by the suggestion of neighbors that it would be cruelty to refuse, the wife took him out for a drive. She improved, it is stated, upon the grave-suit dodge, in this in stance, by driving to Spring Grove and giving him an opportunity to carefully inspect the neat little corner lot that she had purchased for him in case he might need a grave soon. ; -' 1 ' " l ive Witlila Year Heaua. We don't like stinginess. We don't like economy, when it comes down to rags and starvation.. We hare no sym- Dathv with the notion that a. poor man should hitch himself fast to a post, and stand still, while the rest of the world moves forward. It is no man's duty to deny himself every amusement, every recreation, every comfort, that he may get rich. It is no man's duty to make an iceberg of himself, to, shut his eyes and ears to the sufferings of bis follows, and deny himself the enjoyment that results from generous actions, merely that he may hoard wealth for his heirs to quarrel about. ' .,,! Uut there is an economy winch is every man s duty, and which is especially com mendable in the man who struggles with poverty an economy which is consistent with happiness, and which must be prac ticed it the poor man woo Id secure inde pendence., It js almost every man's firivilege, and it becomes hi duty, to ive within his means; not up to, but within them. Wealth does not make the man, we admit, and never should be taken into account in oar judgment of men: but competence should be secured, when it can be, by the praotice of econ omy and self-denial to only tolerable extent. It should be secured, not ao much for other to look upon, or raise us in the estimation of others, as to se cure the consciousness of independence and the constant satisfaction, which is derived from its acquirement and pos session. I 4 FRIDAY EVENING,4 FEBRUARY 17, 1871. FASHIONS. I- Something; Hew Iss Funerals, , : A Chicago Times correspondent writes from New York about funerals: 1 The present innovation is to lay the body upon a couch, dressed in its accus tomed clothing, with a pillow nuder the head. The position is usually that of right or left side, . and the hands are arranged in gome natural and easy position. If the dead is a lady, a handsome shawl Is thrown over the figure, and if a man, an Afghan or silken quilt serves for a covering. Flowers are in the room, but not in such obtrusive abundance as to make the odor of these beautiful things haunt you forever afterwards. The funeral is an nounced, and the friends aud acquaint ances are invited, through the public prints, to be present and take leave of the departed. No hearse and no conin affront the sight and chill the blood with those traditional sentiments which af frighted our childish years. As many days afterwards as the condition of the remains will permit, a few of the nearest and dearest are invited to assist in the sad ceremony of burial. Loving hands lift and lower the casket, and tender ones strew the earth softly above it with flowers, and perhaps some favored wrap pings of the dead are added to lie be tween the dust which usually fulls so heavily and harshly upon that other dust that is so dear. ; No strange eyes witness this last sacred attention to the departed, and no memory of a thought less jar or heavy tread comes back to embitter the remembrance of the sorrow ful event. ; Fresh Bf ewe r Dr. Livingstone. ' Sir Roderick Murchison has sent the following letter to the London Times; , I heartily rejoice to announce to the public that I have this morning (the 24th) received a letter from Dr. Kirk, at Zanzibar, dated the 8th of December, 1870, which bas relieved me from all anxiety respecting the fate of my illus trious friend Livingstone. Dr. Kirk has jost received a letter from the great Arab Shiek Said of Uny-amyembe, dated 16 Rabea el Akbar, which, being translated, is to this effect: ."After compliments, your honored letter has reached, and your friend has understood it. The peo ple (that is of a caravan sent from Zan zibar) arrived in good health, and are going on to Ujiji to our friend, the Doc tor. , The news of him is that he has not yet -returned from Manimcs (the Arabic word is spelt in three different ways), but "we expect him soon, and probably he and the people with supplies will reach Ujiji at the same time." Dr. Kirk adds: "At all events on his arrival at Ujiji from his western journev he will have goods for his present wants. The new gang 'of men with fresh goods has set out, and, the roads being free, we may hope they will reach quickly and safely." We now learn for the hrst time that Dr. Livingstone has made an extensive journey to the west of Lake Tanganyika, and this accounts for the long-continued absence of all in formation respecting him. Any letters that Livingstone may have written and confided to jealons Arabs have probably either been destroyed by them, or lost with some of the caravans that perished on the journey to the coast during the cholera epidemic. There is a colored yonth in the Fresh man Class at Yale College. Mr. Sullivan, of Lockport, N. Y., in troduced a new fashion in suicide by cutting his throat with a handsaw. ' A Chinese thief, having stolen a mis sionary's watch, brought it back the next day to be shown now to wina it up. The Chicago Times, announcing the fact that a man there married to get out of jail, remarks that some men have queer idea ot liberty. The Nevada legislators are in trouble. The treasury is without runds to pay their per diems, and they threaten to ad journ sine die in consequence. . " Chorpenning" ' is a newly-coined word, meaning swindling the govern ment without incurring penalty, much used in Washington at present. Report hath it that General Beaure gard intends to make Paris his perma nent place ot residence as soon as tbe condition of France is settled. General Von Moltke is not a Dane, as has been stated. He was born in Meck lenburg, and entered the service of Den mark early in life, but afterward quitted it tor that ot rrussia. , . . On New Year s day the Pope had reigned twenty-four years, six months and fifteen days just one day longer than Pius VI. tits pontificate has been longer than that of any Pope. ' A London paper expresses the belief that Gambetta is a victim of the opium habit, and that during the war he has seldom been removed from the influence of the drug. ' A kiss, says a French authoress, gives more pleasure than anything else in the world. But Puck declares that that wo man evidently never experienced the childish rapture of descending the parlor stairs by sliding down tne bauistsrs. In the case of Elizalieth R. Coffey against the Home Life lnsuranoe Com pany, which was a suit brought in the Superior Court of New York, on a policy of 15000 on the life of plaintiffs hus band, and which the company refused to drv on the srouud of alleged suicide, the jury rendered a verdict for plaintiff for the lull amount. . m .-'"!. ' ' Ex-Governor Fletcher returned to St. Louis a few days since from the Indian country, where he completed a treaty with the Shawnee and Wyandotte In dians for the right of way for the Atlan tic and Pacific railroad through their reservations. This gives the road the unobstructed right of way front the wes tern border of Missouri to the Colorado river. The New York Herald has a letter from outside Pans, dated "Inside a Shell, January 24.' The writer says: In a few minutes 1 shall be dead. Hits of my dissected body will be splashed against the house-fronts of Pans, .and the splinters of my bones will have be come assistant projectiles destined to slaughter Frenchmen.. At this supreme moment but one human sentiment re mains within we pride at my uncom promising execution of my duty as your correspondent. I am going to be volun tarily shot away in ordtr to supply joe with sensational copy. I do not think any other American special ever went so far as that, and I confidently expect that yoa will retain tbe monopoly of this self-sacrifice." STOVES.
