Tho following circumstances were communicated thro' mo to you by the ."pints, or iu other Tords, 1 am a medium oi the urat water; fori took my pen in hand to day, and the fipiriti dictated me to impart to you, aud hence to your readers, the iojlowin stranre facts in " Harwonial Philosophy." It sec ui3 to me to bo almost more than can believe, but whtu we cou-jdir lint the spirits "aro around" tluve dy.s, bik ing slap-jacks, moving tables, bedstead and trunks, talking with the dead, heal ing the sick and wounded, pratti-eiug den tistry, and conversing with distant rela tives; why should you, or I, or anybody else, doubt their ability, or disposition to get up marriages, or divorces, or cause the Lovo-fVcsf of V-ma!es to desert her Husband, her children, and her friends ! I think, with the amount of evidence before us, of these thiugs, that we must be entirely spiritless to say thce is noth ing in spiritualism, I, myself, have al ways, up to this time, been an unbeleiver in the medium business, but when the spirits make me write things that I knew nothing about before, I must s;iy that I "cave." Hence 1 take thii iuethQ4 of making the fact public. SlIHT i:. L Cq m m u n i c t o n . There dwells iu the land of Clarendon, over against Xatville, a certain chief Mag istrate, a ruler over many people, wh j is well skilled in law, politics, surveying, and above all in 44 Harmonial Philoso phy!" Now this chief Magistrate is a firm believer in spiritual mesmerism, Joe-WallcT-km, Mrc.-Tuttle-iepi, and other non-cntitcs. Now, therefore, owing to the Kftrpme devotion and obedience of this di&ciplie and his hand-maiden, Chloe to the mandates of the spirits, through their mediums, they were blessed with a greater manifestation of regard than has fallen to the lot of a,nv one mortal since the days of Elijah, or lSeclzebuh. Now it happened near thp 8th hour of the 15th dav of (ho 5ih month of the! year A. D. 1855, this chief ruler hear 'i great knocking at his gate; whereupon he looked tin atnl beheld not far nfT n mm clothed with (he hpirit nhd'lou fJcartt.- And the rakr spake and asked him con cerning the nature ol ins visit ; and he auwsered aud said, behold I am the great High Priest, in the order of the spiritual mediums, and am come from the east, from whence enjauatcs all true light, and trarelmg to the ret in search fa star of beauty ; tell me, is thy haudmai- en Mary withiu thy gates? And the Chief Kuler answered and said : How inowost thou that I had a hand-maiden oy the nanrc at jlnvvc And the High Priest answered and said: Verily I sav unto vou that it was revealed to me when a deep bleep was upon me, by the spirits of the departed iu.-.l. made ierfi-ct bv be- ievingin harmonial Philosophy: of which L am the author ant teacher atiKwig ihe nations of the Earth. And the Chief Ku- er cried aloud and said, Allah ! Allah ! God is great, enter in at the tjate, shake the dust from thy sandels, for my house .hall bo thv house: and straiuhtwav he ntercd the house of tho Chief Kuler, washed the High Priests feet, annointed ns beard and gave him meat to eat and water to driuk, that it might be said of iim. that as he had dout Lj others even so would he expect it to be dono him in i ice Kwjner, And it c&vryo lo m tiiAt wh?n the High Priest had eatno, tlw Chief Hulir sent for his hand-maiden Mary, who was i believer in Spiritual Manifestations and Harmonial Philosophy; and h came to pas3 fnat y-kan .lary JvencJJ the great High Priest, she fell upon her face and went, and prayed that she micht find favor in his sight, and that she might i glean where he gleaned, eat where he ate, sleep where he slept, and that she might I bo permitted to wash his feet, annoint his j beard aud call his people her people, hiv house her house, so Jon& as their pirii'. i dwelt in harmony. Kut if it should come to pass that there should arise strife, con tentions or the least warring of their spir its, or if she should behold another man more comely than tho High Priest or one lyith a longer beard and the spirits told her to leave the High Priest and cleave to the other than she would feci con strained to do so jnasuiuch as she is a strong n;itidcd woinnn and gifted much above her sex, in fcpefvh, manners and intellect. Then tho High Priest answered and said; arise beautiful virgin for thou ljast found ivir in my sight go honiu array thyself in biidal habiliments, for r is tljc cipruss command of the spirits thui we should be united during their pleastiM and our own. And straightway she nnM grid vent away to put on the bridal dress, while the Chief Kuler took counsel of Kcncdicts treatise as to the precise form And ceremony of & Spiritual Marriage. nd it amcto pasthat in a few minxes, Mary the kinswoman of Chloe appearad before the High Priest and the Chief Magistrate, arrayed in garments of white &ik ; ?notlcss as the lilly and a wreath of white hoses crowning her expansive and iutcllcctnal brow. Thrn the Chief Ilulc commanded the High Priest and Mry ii stand up bi foie him, might unite by law, Wvj-io. i! Spirit had joined together iu harmony of feeling. And fter the Cuk;f Kuler had called iu the witnesses from the field, he spoke unto the Ili'di Tricst and said : wilt thou take i Mary the kinswoman of Chloe to be tin- : lan-tul nnd wedded wife, so Ion" a as either i of yi:; sus j .iwcrul nail live. And the Ilicrh Priest and said; lam a man of the fcp:nt, guided by the Spirit, hence 1 put the long accustom usages f sotJj fa; from infl; neither do, I icycreuce thj'prc cepis of Vhe liibjc enough to let tiem pre vail with uu against the manifest teach-ing-s of the Spirits; .hence I promise tu take lor my lawful auQ wedded wife, until the Sprits shall reveal to me, that our Spirits do cot harmonize; or until the j j reveal to me one, more lovely man sue; to all of which I dj most solemnly prom ise. Atjd the Chief Kuler answered and &;iid; Allah! Alltdi! God is great, so niuU It be. Then the Chief Kuler spake unto Mary and said; wilt thou forsake and renounce the vain things cf hU wr.-rld and cleave unio this High Priest, K'i Icig as thou o cither of you shaJt ivc. A nl she auswered and said; yea verily I will forsake and renounce all the vajn things of this world, even unto my former husband ; yea, and my two lovely child ren, to become this man's wife. And I will remain faithful to him so long as our spirits harmonize, or until I sec a man that finds nore favor iu my sijrht when I will go from the east, the place of light, to the west, the place of moral darkness, obtain a divorce, leave my family and and friends, and do tho entire bidding of the Spirits, even if it should be to marry again. Then the High Priests answered aud said ; Mary ! howbeit tliat thon art arrayed in spotless white, with a wreath of white roses on thy head ; those being the emblems oi' vinrintty, -when theu hast alruujy $ husband, and also children. Then she answered aud said ; verily verily I say unto you that that was a marriage of the Kody and convenience, and not of Soul or Spirits, therefore I consider my dress as an emblem u( the condition cf my Spirit spotless a3 the lilly. Thou the, IJjgh Prieit answered an-i si 1 Eureka!' " 1 have found" orjo tlt is born of tho Spirit in whom I am wdl pleased. Whereupon the Chief Kuler pronounces - llie: v.v'r mc .firrli. And trairhtyrav Chloe spread tho table and set before them meat and eggs and wine and tea and cakes, whereupon they did eat and drink and wcro satisfied, when they soon took their departure for the cast, the residence of the High Priest and the excitement produced along the highway as they were leaving town can best be described by a verse from John Gilpin for: Tbe dogs did bark, the children screamed I'p tiew the wilidowH all ; And every Soul cried out woll dene, As JlU 1 .

Nc. 1 A Runaway Couple, runaway couple, "true lovycrs," of the taost fervent Yankee stemp, arrived at a small inn near Koston, aud wanted the landlord to send for a minister to " splice 'em," and to be" quick about it." The landlord complied, and the " licens ed minister-came. " 13e you the minister?" asked the bridegroom. " 1 am," ho replied. " O, you be, eh? What's your name?" "Stiggins." ( WC Sliggins," said the Yan kee, ' du it up brown, and your money is ready;" and fourwith the reverend gen tlcfjiun pomnifcnced : Vo will p'ase join hands." The Yrvilree stood up with his lady love, au 1 jeizrd hv'r fervently by the hand. " 1'qu promise, Mr. A ,"said the parsan, " to take this woman " "Yaas !" said the bridegroom. " To be your lawful and wedded wife ?" Va- Yaas!" Ts v:u will tuva and honor her in til tl.i " S.:rtin yaas, I tell yer !"

You dju't consult lioth.m' nor nobody, until this 'ere business is concluded!" And with this he, turned the key and put it (amidit tho Vitteringof the witnesses whom the landlord had called in) in his pocket. Seizing the baud of his truijdiii'j bride he said : Go on, now straight from where you left off; put us through, and no oiging. It'll be all right; if it oiu't right, we'll make it right in the morning, as the wav ing is." After reflecting a moment, the parson concluded to run the risk of the informal ity. So ho continued : "You promise, madam to take this man to be your lawful husband ?" " Yaas," said the Yankee, as h. lady bowed. "And that you will love, honor and obey him ?" 4 That's 'cm !" said Jonathau, as the lady bowed again. " And that you will cling to him as loTvg ns you both shall live ?" 44 That's the talk stick to oe3 another allers" and the lady said 'yes' again. " Then, in the presence of these w it nessess, I prot:r,s:ce you m$n and wife." " Hoirah !" shouted Jonathan, Reaping half way to the ceiling with joj.

Ar. Y. Picayune. llepqedly Cod, " The truth of tho following story is vouched for by the issottri correspon- dent of Harper's Mi,Klllj : Not a hundred miles from here, some six months ago, lived a fair widow, pos sessed of those chamiing qualities that most dazzle and charm the bachelor. She was young, handsome, and very wealthy. .Mrs. Jackson took an eastern tour last summer, and was beset hy many suitors ardent, anxloijs lovers among whom tho mast persevering and devoted was a Kentucky lawyer, quite a promising man, but so cuamorcd did he become of this fair widow that he left a lucrative practice at home, and followed hcrthrcugh the en tire route of fashionable travel. Ho met her at Kaltimore, Philadelphia, and New York; he danced with her at Saratoga and Aewport; ana wncn the season was drawing to a close, he hqipcncd to be with her at Niagara, and ou the Ohio river, and even at St. Louis, when she was almost ( homo.. Ue always pleading profes sional business as tho reasons of hts ex cursions here and there; bat Ire managed tc plead his own suit out of court when courting the widow, though he saw no ev idence of a verdict in his favor. At length Mrs. Jackson stepped on board the boat j at fct. Louts, to go up the .Missouri to ffcr j own rcsiuence, waen, to ucf suf prise, uie indefatigable advocate presented himself, as fresh as a May fc;oniiug. Tho widow cxcIajV.ed as she met him : u Why, Mr. Johns, I thought that you were going to return to Louisville !" " Mrs. Jackson, my deir madam," re plied tho lawyer, " I am hero to renew the offer of my hand, and to beg your ac ceptance. " " Keally, sir, I think I have been suf ficiently explicit, and you had no encour agement to pursue tho matter. " Uut I hope madam, that my devotion and perseverance would finally be reward ed" " Do you mean, then," said the widow, evidently softened, " that you really had no other business in going this journey with me to prosecute this suit ?" " None in the world but tho hopo of winning you." " Then vou shall he rewarded," idie re plied, with a rogush twinkle in her beau t i ti 1 1 tfves which the tho lawyer mistook for a sweeter passion ; " thea, my dear sir you shall bo rewarded. Tell me now as a geutlcman, how much money you have spent on this tour?" u Do you really wish to knoT?" " Certainly, 1 do." Mr. Johns LoA oit his aotc book, and soon reported that he had spent nearly five hundred dollars. Well' said the lovely widow, "I do net wish any one to lose by mr," extending her purse to the lawyer. " Why, what do you infar, :in- d irk'- (son vas G$ te hordes of- lkc,fe Hani) " I mean what I say ; tako it, and pay yourself for your c ummer's work on my a-ccount, and let us be iiuitd."

Some ten days ago, im mediately after the publication of & gene ral political amnesty, there was a rumor ofgns concealed in tho city, and im pending dangfcT. B'ft tfye cry of wclf had been raisoso often, that few were Alarm ed, and it did not deter me from going to. Las Adjuntas, eomo fifteen mjks from the capital to shoot deer. Uut, as it happeur cd the keeper of the iun had gone to give the government notice that he kad v4U-d a box of muskets cenceajed in his house, and on arrival I fiaw some sity sergeants thero fine lookiug, for that country, al though mostly half-breed, but rathcx bet ter equipped, and secmjng tu have-woro fight in them than the government troops. Their officer rode into tho court-yardt which, being partly roofed, formed tho dining-room of the hotel, and demanded brandy lor tho men, which was given him. After having remained there half an hour, possessed tVteutsvit t$ the guna, and threatened to kill two offieiaJs wha refused to join thein,, hut whom they finally released, they rcreatc-i A jonnctj the detachment under Colonel Krito. Th? government tioonsj -00 strong, rived at nightful, eight invars tos lave. Aa tho hills around were said to bo filled with guerillas, uuder young Pcnto, whosa brother was executed hy outer of Morra- gas some four years ago, and the report of a gun might have drawu a xloir tsbola upon lac, 1 gave up hunting, and return ed the next day to Caraccas. Upon the morning of the 8th, one of the foreign ministers acting npoa ajparr ently rdtfUe iHjrmaticn tVat the Presi dcnil's life Vrruj iu duc, eoaved thd diplomatic boily, wishing them to advise Morragas, on personal considerations, ta resign, and to tender to him aud his fami ly, the hospitality and protection f tin legations. So strong were his proofs that ho seemed likely to gain his point, whc$ a very manly and sensible gpeech ftosx our able representative, Mr. Eames, en forcing the doctrine ot nov.-interveiitioo, convinced the wavermg diplomats that they had better let the internal airs of Vcueiteji alcue. Meanwhile General Inas, a man just before branded as a coward, hy a printed circular signed 3(af;y Officers of the Army," for not resisting a gross and pub lic insult, had been sent out. Ho has bceu clamoring for reiaierecmcnts ever since, although ho announced a victory ia which three men were killed r.ni four taken. Al the peasants for twenty miles around had been brought in droves by an armed force sent to scour the country. These raw levies, hastily and ill-equipped, many of thcia carrying their c&ttndges ia their hands, have been dispatched to tho scene of action under General Castclli, arc old soldier of Napoleon's who supercedes Irias. He will have in all some twelve thousand men, to oppose a force stated aa four thousand. At the last accounts Vah encia was in the possesion of the insert gents. Irlas had advanced to within seven miles of it, but had been oblicod to retreat and entrench hinjsclf in tho mouu; tains. provincial pGvcrnmant had keep formed and General Castro, who is sup posed to control the important provinco of Carahoho, had given in his adhesion to it. Puerto Ca hello had pronounced, and tho steamer which had run between thero and Laguayra was seized, and acut to Curacoa to be bortid for guns, private iatcHigonco of this fact was received here five days ha fere the government knew of it. The chiefs of the revolutionary party arc mostly men of high standing, aud in the event of their success is little fear from violence. Mun.agiLs is universally hated, and his downfall seems certain. Ho has ordered no quarter to he given, and tried to excite the recently liberated negroes to arms, by the announcement that tho other party would re-ciislaro them. Those who have peon a black army in full swing will Appreciate the effect of this threat upon the white portion of tho iuhahitant3. Caracca is inalinost a state of fcige. Provisions have raised to- famine prices a the country jvx)plo will bring nothing to market for tear of impressment. Tim st.ablcs of the foreign ministers are filled with horses, sent there to save them from scizuro for tho troop, and their houses with fugitives.
