PROSPECTUS OF TUB BOTABICfl-MEDICAL HI The undersigned feeling confident that the wants of the people of Mississippi, as well as their liberality, would justify the publication of a Medical Journal in their midst that a Journal devoted to the consideration of the di8isfcasekof their peculiar climate, has long since lx?en called for, has, therefore, determin ed to commence the publication of the above named Journal, in January next. Tub Companion will contain, thirtv- two Octavo paes, printed on cood pa Ier, with (at the end of the volume) a tine page ana index. Tun Companion will contain accurate and critical investigations of the differ ent theories of disease now extant, and with a bold.and independent firmness, ! csign to each, their proper and just merit, ft wrfi, at the same time, Witt an unrelenting determination, advocate a Medical Tlt'orm, BasJed upon princi ples of truth and philosophy. The dif ferent remedial aaests TfUl be described, and such other information jven on this important subject, as to form a Y?'" liable Materia Mediea, both of the old and new school, contrasting the safety and utility of the latter, with the poi sonous and deathly effects of the former Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology will not be over-looked, and such a mass of facts will be collected and placed before the people, as will serve to place these branches in their proper niches The importance so surreptitiously ap propriated to them, will be awarded to that department, to which it of right belongs, (viz) practical medicine. This latter department will be ren dered, both interesting and useful by original Communications, Editorial cor respondence, and reports of cases treat ed according to the reformed practice or system. Much valuable information will be given at the request of our cor respondents. The nature of disease under all its various modilications will be critically examined, and the means best calculated to meet the existing ex igency, and at the same time to remove the cause, will be pointed out. In fact, no effort shall be wfinting on the part of the editor, to make the Companion one of the most valuable and useful Family Jolunai, in the South. Hence, the Proprietor trusts that he will receive a liberal patronage from an intelligent and generous public. o o o OB 5i &X SB The Companion will be published monthly, at $2 per annum, invariably in advance.

Editodm : At your request, we will devote a minute to examining this vexed sub I ject, and furnish the result of our investigation? 1 promising that such has not been as satisfactory to us as we had wished. We determined t; unfold the mystery, to unroll the (iordian knot but Alexander like, are forced to upc our sword or leave the task to thespititsof the old scholar i data which spurns laborious iuvcstij-niion, an ' slow induction, Fatisfied that our young pliiles ophy needs mending much, before we convince the world that these tappings are simple of ex planalion, or subjects unfit for the disciples of Alexander, of Halis, of Thomas Aquinas, or JJunscotus, to couple with their studies. To account for them, we hae wrought many pret ty theories, and have been charmed as each re vealed its beauties to our minJ. We have dreamed them over and again, dwelling w ith pride upon our ingenuity, seJ excee, the coiwlv air-castles have disappeared, or have been eclips ed by others of more summing truth, Yet, as the snow-flake delicate, They're vanquished by a single ray. At one time we are ready to exclaim with one of old, "Eureka I Eureka !'' as we reach forth to grasp the key, but, will-with-the-wisp like, it evades our touch, and the lovely flowers ol im agination are left to wither on the waste of memory. Now for our experiments and conclusions. Is the rapping the result of rickets in the able? Is it the effect of electricity ? Is it the result of Animal Magnetism? and if the result of either, can it be explained upon known principles? In answer to the first, we unhesitatingly say no, since we cannot believe that such would have escaped the reseach-of the learned, nor an we willing to offer lliem such indignity, or at tribute to them such an over share of credulity. notwithstanding it is the opinion of some learn ed gentlemen who have investigated the subject quite as wc have done. One feels certain that rickets in the table is quile a satisfactory an swer, and thinks that the tappings cannot be produced by contact on a solid stick of tim!er of any size, and as wood is a conductor of sound, they ought to be heard with as much distinct ness as when made on a table or other sonorous body. Sound is the result of vibration we ad mit, and wood is elastic enough to transmit it; but the gentleman who makes this suggestion, takes it for granted that those who differ with him, attribute the rappings to spiritual, or actual nisftiifestations, which we positively disclaim, as the sequel will show. We admit wood to be a good conductor of; sound, when produced by forcible contact ofi some other body, but artificers have yet to learn that solid blocks are the best for Violins or Guit ars, or that he would not be laughed at, who would appl his ear to a plank road, and exp ct to hear the fury Of a thunder-storm at a g:eat distance. The noise or rappings may not be heard so distinctly on a solid mass, as on a more sonorous body, from the fact, that shape, as well as ab sence of weight, has no little influence over its sonOriousness. Again, we have placed our hands on the table. with hers piaccd on them. Now, if the rapping were made by rickets in the table, we having nur hands in immediate contact with it, bewildered would we be indeed, if we should fail then to delect her in attempts to produce, the noises, by moving the same, since, in this position they are as distinct, as when her own rested on it. s it the effect of electricity? As far as we can udge, it cannot possibly be such, since they con tinued, after we had isolated the table by stand ing it in four glass tumblers. We then placed her chair on four pieces of glass, expecting to put a stop to it, but as signally failec ; leaving the medium and table both on the glasses, we proceeded next to place a pane of glass between her hands and the table, after which, to our as tonishment, they were quite as distinct as when no non-conductor was used to break the current. s it the result of Animal Magnetism, or Mes- mensm; we uunK it is, as can oe snown Dy an article of some length. Animal Magnetism is an agent of a peculiar and mysterious nature, having a powerful influence on the subject when acted upon by contact, or voluntary emotion on the part of the operator. Its existence has-been established by the declarations of hundreds of truthful men, who have witnessed its effects as demonstrated for some months past. Those who have witnessed its practice, declare and as sert that the subject magnetized, beholds the most distant objects, propia persona, but with the mind's eye of the operator, who at his pleas ure perverts the taste, nay, all the senses, to suit his fancy, the magnetized being entirely .subject to his will. He takes with him the subject's mind, or sends it by his volition to the most dis tant countries, whe're it describes with perfect correctness, the locality, the shape, the plot, the landscapes, the city, ah! the very hearth stones, as he, the operator, saw them last. This is done though the wide ocean is spread between space is annihilated or reaches only to the impress left on the brain of the operator. When these facts are considered (and there are few better attested) cannot our credulity be stretched a little farther, to admit new wonders, (or fictions if you choose.) to understand the effect of Animal Magnetisrr a knowledge of Anatomy is not only essential, but absolutely necessary. It teaches that there re two important surfaces in animals, known as the serous and mucus. The first covers -ach "organ, nerve, and foscia of the muscles, mclu dinc the whole of their surfaces." The latter . constitutes the inuer of every organ, nerve and Vxisung on the nervous medium, hence it re ives impressions irreii$libUf. It rxMkr within itself the ponitive and negatin pole, or greater and leer part"?, the one coutroling the other subject ; the one receiving power, tin- other transmitting and exeicising power. This ethe real substance u hir.h serves as a medium, may -termed MagnHtfyi. The muscular motfon of the system being performed through the medium of the sjstince which may be termed electrici ty. Between all organic beings this medium exists, placing man over the lower animal crea tion. "Man is positive, all cist, negative must yield to his contiol." One individual jogscss ing a greater share of this ethereal fluid or mag netism than another, becomes a positive pole, and when brought in contact with one contain ing less, absorbs by on effort of volition, or aA ers urilhin himsfef the minor quantity pn. . I by the weaker, thus bringing him (hi.s mind) under his control as in the subject of Mesmerism It is the passage of this magnetic fluid that gives out the noise or rappings, just as a magnclittA bail does when the knuckle is presented to it. But you ask. why do the rappings stop at a given number, or how are questions answered by them with surh correctnesses to number? It has been assumed that the. Magnetizer has control not over the body alone, but over both the body ami the mind of the magnetized. Again, it has been proven that conten t is not es sential to bring about this state of c'airnnan r The medium, by an effort, passes herself into this state, as is evfcfesQCed by her sleeping over the table, in a ft-w minutes after seating herself at the same. Being in a state of clairvoyance be eomcsa jKirt of the interrogators mind, or thrONgh this stale, brought alvml by her absorbing this ethereal or magnetic fluid from tha subject or, interrogator, fathers to herself a part of his mind, MM with his eyes and by this influence of Ani mal Magnetism, or this etlrercal fluid connecting the two, but passing to the medium from the subject, she possessing the grealerattractive quan tity. She, consequently, knows his thoughts, and tire rappings cease at her pleasure. The medium was requested to produce a given number of rappings, and ilien by diverting the train of thought to discontinue them, which she did without ever failing, thus establishing the gratifying farts (for the safety of the weak) that the spirit supposed to be under the table, if any there were, was but the spirit of the performer. Claiming lenity fiotA critics, we leave with them this vexed subject, having furnished in a leeble manner, the results of our experiments, with sufficient clearness we hoi e, to beget in others, a more minute im estigation. Yours, &r, PAX. Tiik ytkh Ai. Piu'Fing. The following critique is a grand burlesque ulpon modem dramatic flourishes. It is graduated to suit the style of exaggerated descriptions of men and things so common in tfifil country: "On last night Mrs. , about whom all the world has been talking, exposed her beautiful, adman t ine, soft and lovely person, for the first time in the Theatre Royal, in the bewitching, melting, and all-tearful character of Isabella. The house was crowded with hundreds more 'han itqpuld hold, with thousands of admiring spectators, that went away without a sight; This extraordinary phenomenon of tragic excel lence, this slar of Melpomene, this comet of the stage, this sun in the firmament of the muse this moon of blank verses, this queen and prin cess of teais, this despot of the poisoned bcwl, this express Rusty Fusty of the pistol and dag ger, this chaos of Shakspeare, tliis world of weep ing clouds, this Juno of commanding aspect, this Terpsichore of the curtains and scenes, this Proserpine of fire and earthquake, this Katter felto of wonders, exceeded expectation, went be" yonu Detiei, and soared above all description. SHe was nature; she was the most exquisite of art; she was the very daisy, primrose, tuberose, wall flower, and cauliflower, the sweet briar, furze blossom, gillyflower and rosemary. In short she was the very boquet of Pnrnasus. Sev eral fainted before the curtain drew up the very fiddlers in the orchestra blubbered like hungry children for their bread and butter ; one hundred and nine ladies fainted; forty six went into fits: and ninety five had strong hysterics. The work wiU hanlly credit the assertion, that fourteen children, five old women, a one handed sailoD and six coniniori couilcilmen were actually drowned in the inundation of tears thai ftbwedf. from the boxes and galleries, to increase tie briny flood in (he pit. The water was three feet deep, and the people, that were obliged to stand upon, the benches, were, in that situation, up to their alleles in tears. Nature, surelv, in one of her humane leisure hours, in one of her smiling days, in one of her all sorrowing years, made this hu man lump of clay perfection. Capt.
