- EXTRAOIDINARY " SPIRITUAL" D)EVELOPMIENTS. The New York Times gives an account of a sect of spiritualists who have for some years practised a gospel of free love in the city of Newark, N.Y., but who in 1868 determined to unveil their rites to. the world.

About 9 o'clock on New Year's evening the street pedestrians who had occasion to pass Mrs Reeves's house were astonished to find M'Ewen standing in the front of the open window, clad in the habiliments of Adam before the fall, 'while the fair form of Miss Reeves, personating Eve, was seen to flit to and fro. under the gaslight like a fawn gambolling in Eden.

THE ART OFI MESMERISM. From tMe E'npire. WHAT is this wonderful power that is nightly exhibited at the School of Arts? How is it that a man, in no respects ap parently differing from ordinary men, is able to control the wills of others as completely as if they were inferior beings without wills of their own? Night after night have we seen men who appear to be forced by an ir?visible and irresistible agency to go through the most ridiculous antics, to believe, or to act as is they be lieve, that .they are animals, to seem to lose all-consciousness of their own -iden tity, and to think and move precisely as they are directed. At the first view of these exhibitions, the least sceptical natu rally set them down as the exhibitions of a very clever impostor, who is enabled by collusion with others to take advantage-of the superstition and credulity which cha racterise uneducated people. But scep ticism is compelled to give way before the reiterated proofs of his good faith offered by the ...
