For On Sunday evening last Mrs. Cora L. V. Tappan delivered her the two previous Sunday evenings we have given the first and the second letters namely, the Divine Spirit, and the individual usual discourse on Spiritualism iii tho above place. London, so I human spirit, embodied and disembodied; to-night we wish to proverbial for wet, almost outdid itself in humidity on that occa- \ speak upon mediumship a question which more intimately son, one quarter of it seeming to vie with another in raining. The. connects you, more than any other, with the philosophy of attendance was in consequence thinner than it has ever been before,. modern Spiritualism. As the existence of the Divine Mind' has though there was still a good house. been conceded by all religions in every age of the world, varying only in the outward form and expression, so also ha3 the existence On the conclusion of the introductory hymn (48 in tho Spiri- ' of the human spirit been conceded in the various forms of tual Lyre ), Mrs. Tappan rose and, as usual, gave one of her i revelation and religious belief. Mediumship is that distinguishing beautiful invocations. phase of modern Spiritualism that divides this belief from the I nvocat ion. i past religious movements of tho world, and reduces the spiritual Our Father and our Mother, God! Thou infinite Spirit 1 Thou philosophy to a science. Understand u s; we do not say that life. Thou source of being! Thou ineffable delight! Thou light ; mediumship has not always existed ; we do not say that there have amid the darkness of time! Thou perfect good, above all human not always been instruments, not only for the Divine Mind, but error! Thou transcendent power, surpassing wonderful, even in the for disembodied individual minds; hut ii is only to-day that the midst of human weakness thy strength doth abide! Thou that, term <! medium, as applied to individuals who are chosen a3 the from all eternity into the future eternity, art tho only unchangeable instruments of communication between two worlds, has been ower! Thou that hast seen neither beginning nor ending, but only discovered. For instance, of course you know that between Efe for ever! how can the finite mind grasp thy being? how can any two elements there must he a means of conveyance. Between the finite essay to understand thy vastness? O God, we may only your sense of hearing and tho voice that vibrates upon the praise! Upon the altar of thy being we may bring our offerings, atmosphere, there must be an intermediate atmosphere; this is our infirmities, our shortcomings, our weaknesses, our imperfections,. called tho medium of conveying the sound. A letter is the and tkv great perfectness will enfold the whole. O Father, we i medium of conveying ideas. Human language is in itself a would conic to Thee as children, to a kindly and indulgent parent, 1 medium ; and whomsoever you may employ to hear a message to seeking thy counsel when we are at a loss, to ask for wisdom in our 1 a friend is a medium. Y ou have the atmosphere as the great varied strivings for tlie good and for the truth amidst the errors medium not onlv of sound, hut of light and, indeed, of all the and falsities of tho finite mind, pressing beyond the sophisms of essential properties of life upon the earth's surface. Y ou know sense and intellect to the one true spirit that never misleads. O sound itself is the medium of conveying intelligence, whereby one Father, each spirit has its own burden to bring Thee ; every heart mind, through the voice and organism, expresses its thoughts to has its own cares and sorrows. Some are bowed with anguish, another mind. Now a medium, in the modern acceptation of with the misfortunes of life ; and there be those that walk in the that term, is that person chosen by organisation or by gifts to be great darkness, struggling with poverty, and striving in tho midst the instrument of communication between your world and the of their sorrow to find Tliee. Oh, let some guardian angel of light spiritual world. Because it must occur to every intelligent mind bid them look above, beyond tho earth, beyond physical suffering that beings of a different order from yourselves organised and sorrow, and find comfort and rest and peace. Some there be differently, inhabiting a different atmosphere, and having no phvsieal bodies wherewith to transmit their intelligence must that look with fear and shuddering upon death. Let these know that life is endless that the being born of Thee, the living Spirit, employ some instrumentality whereby they may reach your cannot perish, but is immortal, even as Thou art. Some there be minds. Now ibis instrumentality is, first, the spiritual atmosphere which they inhabit and which surrounds them ; secondly, certain revel in luxury, and go blindly on through eaithly life imagin ing that all of pleasure lies in the senses and in the splendours of properties and elements of your own atmosphere, finer than material power. O Father, open the avenues of their souls! let electricity, more subtle than magnetism, different from Od force, them behold tho brother or the sister that is in w ant; let them see and different from that psychic force which has lately been discovered or supposed to have been discovered but an element the misery that is often by their very firesides, and at the very of such a nature that they can operate upon it and produce pal doorways of their dwellings; and let them know th a tlh o u hast pable results. Then the next means of inspiration or mediumship said through the lips of thy inspired one, Even as ye do it unto is your own physical organisation. the least of the.-11, so also is it done to me. O Light and Life, let Certain persons are endowed by nature wirii a physical organi us look beyond and above to find t he strength that comes from sation that permits them to be used as mediums between the two Time. Let us aspire to all truth ; let us search earnestly for (he worlds. Now, tho varieties of mediumship are as great in number best gifts of the spirit : let us strive to understand the mysteries that have Is cn v e i l e d and shrouded in human ignorance; and Gb, let us all remember that in thy sight there is no preference: allure as one with Tliee, and ev rv child of earth is a child of thy care, Let. mankind be bound tog rlln-r bv ties of love, of kindness, of affection,.1 charity, until tin y may feel that they are allied to the fcojtf*d-w<u Id, and chirp Itund i with tlm that sing thy praise for wit/tht'.

Sometimes mediumship is wholly of tho mind, belong ing to what wo term impre.-sional" or inspirational" mediumship.

For be sure mat wnen -once this gift i- bestowed upon y< tt. r when once it is unf.ied from y our nature, i: is ik light matter. It is t t a timing thing a something to be solicited, as the pastime of an. hour, and then cast aside : it is for the advancement and development of one of the most important principles that have been given to the human, mind. If true, it em bodies all that pertains to immortality: if false, it enfolds the wi. 1- ; Id m materialism. See to it that you do not covet spiri tual gifts lightly, or in a trifling manner. The m ost external form of medium-hip, as 1: is called, that which appeals to the senses, and through the senses to the intellect, and dually, to the spirit of man. ie that which produces these tappings and mis uplifting of material bodies, occurring in the presence of certain persons. Ii is not always with these persons, nor is it true that they can draw it to themselves, although they may cultivate me gift. It does not come when a person ask- for it; but it is found on experiment mm certain t*ersons possess this power, tle cultiva te n and guidance of which is the first step in the scientific investi gation of modem Spiritualism. It therefore behoves all th >se who i-ut etui- gift, to inquire carefully into the conditions that are best to surround the medium. It is claimed by scientists that electricity -it -e tee agency employed, because electricity is the most sub-tie element of which the human mind knows anything. But it is not true that electricity is the agency employed: on the contrary, the manifestations occur 'under circumstances that altogether preclude -he possibility of their being produced by electricity. The emana tion from the medium's body that the spirit employs to produce the rappmgs or other physical manifestations, is not of the nature of electricity: it is more subtle. Take an instance: Some mediums have produced these tappings, when isolated from table and chair and room, by glass plates. You know electricity will not penetrate g-a;-. and that it is impossible for it to be generated in a table or chair when isolated by glass balls or plates: yet, notwithstanding this isolation of the medium, the sounds Lave been heard, conse quently it cannot be electricity which produces them : hence you must look to a more subtle element, and an agency more universal than electricity, for an explanation of the phenomena one that does not require such circumstances for its creation, but is produced from the human organisation, and is therefore amenable to the spirit; for them to direct their force by. Sometimes one person alone cannot produce sound;, but two- persons sitting together, or three, or more, will receive the sounds not one is the medium, but all when united form the medium of communication between the spirit-world and vfiurs. Yew there is no name known in the scientific vocabulary that we can give to this substance or element, that i- an. mauction from the form of the medium: but be sure, *i- science advances, it will acquaint you with a term whereby you can be. igjiav this Free beyond psychic force, and different from n g i v e n t o >ou. - Is jm.wtr. or this clement, to produce those ext*nal manifest nti' ns. and ii anv -ne of you is desirous of becoming a m< dinm, or lather of develf/piug whig,, well to f a llt S il ^01 when by placing your hands upon the s t 7 i,j : > object, you will soon discover whether iov?

' " :ho intluence of this control, which we call obsession, not 1 'o-ulvving anything, since, when the spirit which takes possosr-l.'enters, it is the control of another mind other than his own, " 'v person manifests all the characteristics, uses the various language, and exhibits the peculiarities of manner that 1., ne claiming to speak through him did on earth. This is a i 1?0 of the subject that opens up a vast range of thought,!. there are many persons in your world that are the victims \,i> jsion, who arc not aware of it. Sometimes this is what tills, ir.-iute asylums; sometimes this causes those singular forms jf mental disease that have bullied the treatment of medical science. A thorough investigation of the laws of spiritual control would lead everyone to know that mediums are sensitive, susceptible, and oftentimes extremely delicate, possessing external organisations that cannot resist, especially if not aware of it, an untoward induence. Now, entirely disconnected from Spiritualism, there are sranv eases in your insane asylums that could he treated by spirit ual _r.etic healing, because it. is the control of some disembodied i'.'iri; who does not know the fearful power that it can employ over mortals. We say this especially as a warning, because those of you who want mediumship should take very great care that you Kek earnestly tor the best gifts, and in seeking lor the best gifts, that you seek also for the host influences, and that such intluencos is you sometimes have about you be not of a nature to attract irks who are undeveloped, and who do not understand the delicate laws ot'controlling another human mind, by which means many persons aro driven to insanity. We say this, not because eases of in-arrity are common among mediums, but because cases of insanity outside of Spiritualism may frequently be explained bv I his same subtle law. You seek to become the instruments of the spirit: but there are three conditions you must, guard against. You must seek, first, to have full knowledge of the laws that govern spiritororol; then see that your material surroundings and your associates are of an aspiring nature for if not, they cannot draw ta yon spirits of nu aspiring nature. Then, when your spirit con trols you, or a guide leads you into spirit-life, your first questions should bo: Aro they advanced? Do they know the power they are using? Can they use i t to m y benefit, and th e advancement o f "ihoi's?" Having an answer to these questions and by their fruits you must know them try the spirits and see what manner they we of. Then, under the intluence of harmony, of privacy, of the Kin-ion of the fireside, of every circumstance that is favourable, find ot no circumstance that is unfavourable, then you may prayer fully give yourself up to their control, seeking ever the highest. Hut k-sure that it is a most dangerous power in unskilful and in.i udoped hands; he sure that it ever brings unhappiness on i!i iv who are not aware of its wonderful and potent mysteries; he suro vuu may not lightly enter the lists and covet the gifts of the spirit as the instrument lor the means ot other communications; ami I* sure ud> that you cannot adapt it to any unworthy purpose any Merely material or physical desire; but be sure that, in that "ill nut satisfy you, bringing you, if you use it lor that purpose,rather kii-erv than happiness, liut, it the spirits that are around you par take of your own nature, if you attract such spirits as those that \Yv ".'illy a<' crate with v. u. th n vou rm>t be siumuhi. jor >1 world i* made u\ of just such beings a> are coming ni vonr mi Ut dailv. 1; vou. mire to the jgh. noble, and lotty. just as surely as one atom attracts another, or one chemical property attracts another that has an atliuity lor if, so surely will you attract spirits that are like yourself or your sur roundings. Guard alwavs against those physical depression* arising from more immediate surrounding that oftentimes draw unde- 1 veloped spirits. You stand -omowhat appalled on eutering upon the investigation of a subject where undeveloped spirits are! > bo considered: but you must remember there are undeveloped spirit*. i:i your world, that humnuitv is a vast sea of undeveloped souls, but that far bey ond am merely temporal or external influence there is the Divine Mind : and there be angelic ministers that may not K» down to anv service of morel v vvovl iiv entertainment. S i 'i arch earnestly, inv, -tigate c.uefullv." If the medium bo ot a very sensitive, nervous, and susceptible organisation, let him h> sur rounded by influence* of family and friends that wii! be conducive to his cultun\ 1 fatty iudiv i buds consent to hi e me the unmthpie» <» of spiritual di es not thereto;- follow that their own individuality is lost; by no means - vou are otilv under the influ ence of teachers, friends, or guardian spirits who are drawn about vou. and these, with your own earnest \v.*h for truth, will lead you in the paths of knowledge. When you once have found your position, when you once know vonr platform, when you are coco aware of the powers you po-soss. then vou mav be guide' and directed for the use of mankind ; for it is no ILht -i t to be the means of conveying messages from one world to another; it is no trilling matter that the tongue may speak and the ey e may > e tim thought* of those regions that lie hevond the r aim of mortal vision. You will not boatraidof the influence* of fa: her and mother.ot\ arid and friend: and there is no human being who goes out into the spiritworld that is not somebody's child, and all are amenable to the intluence* of kindness and charity. So win n there c m e voices of discord, overcome them with gentleness; when there come spirits in prison, perchance yours mav be the voice and yours the hand to release them ; for it was sard of desus that, after hi* crucifixion, he was absent and visited the spirits in prison th e who wore disobedient in the day* of Noah. Oon.-ider what spirits go i ut from your earthly prisons in spiritual darkness. lyrclianoe -. nm member of your own family for every tttvsido has its sorrow, and every house ha* its skeleton -some member fallen from the fold and wandered from the flock; and you. a- the earthly ml: v or mother, brother or sister, have wept and prayed for that orm, and there has come to you from theology the thought that that loved one may have gone down, down into endless perdition ; and it has sent a thrill of horror through y our hearts and tircsid. s. D sure, however, that is not so : the God of intitule love is iutinite in love, and your pravers, and tears, and aspirations can reach that spirit in prison and draw it up to light. Oh, there are more things in this philosophy than ye wot of! Yet ye go on in your usual way, and the wounds that death and care have made arc healed up; but remember that many a restless and perturbed spirit i- wandering, asking for admission to your hearths, and seeking for a ray of light to lead it. to higher realm* of spiritual guidance. Yes, when vou remember that the spirits in prison a.-k for and come that you may give them forgiveness: if any soul* have injured you, I and have gone out into the other world unforgiven, see to it that you do not harbour resentment against th em - not even it they remain here : for tire spirit is often impeded in its upward flight by the remembrance of some one that remains on earth, some iiijury that lias boon done, some evil unforgiven. Let them all be forgiven. Sometimes the spirit comes to your fireside asking tor this forgiveness: your daughter may be the medium for manitea- ; tations: if, therefore, the name of your enemy be giv en to you from the world of souls, see ye cherish no hatred. If the Most High Christ, in the supreme hour of life and death, could say : " bather, forgive them," meaning those who reviled, those who condemned, and those who crucified him; if lie could do this, how little is it for you to forgive vour petty foes! It the mother has tollowod her erring child, even to the ignominious death outlie scallold, be sure that her love forms the very chain that binds that soul to the Intitule, and bridges over the great chasm ot despair that otherwise might divide them. Spirits arc thronging around you ; the air is full of their breath ; your lives are largelv made up of their influences : they impel you in one way, they impel vou in another: seek, therefore, the good influences" the soft voice of angelic ministration. You are often angry : anger attracts undeveloped souls. You are often envious : envy does not belong to the higher influences. Mete out to others that which you would have them do to v o u r -it docs not draw the brighter spirits. I ho soul must be made tree and pure and garnished; seek the best light the holiest influences; then you may benelit. others and lead them also to the light. The gift of mediumship, as we have stated, belongs to each one of you, more or less. Each day and hour, strange beings walk by y our side : one withdraws you from the danger, another impels you towards it. The guardian of your lives the appointed spirit, that has been by vour side from infancy finally prevails, for the light is greater than the darkness: it always conquers; for love is move supreme than hatred ; for Cod is love ; and error shrinks away before the light of his divine countenance. Ye are mediums : between your lives and the spiritual world is an intricate and an I absolute stream of thought interwoven ; it rests with you to culti vate it, to nuke it subserve the highest and loftiest purposes. I, if vou remain wilfully blind, it goes on, even as some of those blind elements in nature, unguidod and unresisted, doing its work iu

Sir, Anyone who had ever read any of Allan Kardecs books would probably answer to the question, What do you think M. lvardec s spirit would reply, if asked what is most wanted at many English seances?" why, those who have read his books would probably say at once, If we are to judge Kardec s spirit by the man, he would 6ay undoubedly, plu-s dc rccucillcmcnt more prayerful research, more holy meditation. There is no word perhaps so frequently repeated in his writings, tending to produce anything of lasting value, any teaching of any high import, as this word rccucillement; for the above reason there seems good cause to suppose that tho spirit who has sought out Dr. E. B. Boulland as a co-worker is the spirit of Kardcc. L ambda. Mr. W. R ic h a r d s, 7, Tachbrook Street, Pimlico, will be glad to receive the names of persons desirous of forming a local association.

In spite of the fact that 1 had vr:::ied myself for the occasion by a perusal of all the comic j-ioers per'uars as a consequence of the melancholy that deed ongend -red), the strange and mysterious errand on which I was bound made me recall the wish of Shakespeare s doughty knight, Would it were bedtime and all well." and it was with a sense of relief that 1 met on my way a gentleman of the press with a similar purpose to my own. On arriving, we were ushered into a fairly-sized room, nearly square, and here there were seated Mr. and Mrs. Tommy, whose names, having been already before the public in relation to this subject, may he fairly mentioned; a medical gentleman, who supported Mr. Monck at his lectures: a lady (this gentleman's wife), and a young man. A third press-representative with a friend, and another young man, arrived soon afterwards, and Mr. Monck, who was the last to arrive, completed the company. We sat round an oblong table, sufficiently large to allow the eleven persons ample room to place their hands upon it, and sufficiently heavy that it required an effort for one person to move it three or four inches. Light was afforded by means of a tube connecting a lamp with an ordinary gaselier ; and, although the gas was not turned on to tho fullest extent, the light was clear and bright, and the room in no part darkened. At ihe request of Mr. Monck we (the outsiders of the spiri tual circle examined the table and surveyed the room, and we all agreed that, so far as we could tell, there was no possibility of trick. Wo then sit down nt the table, Mr. Monck at one end, faced by a young man who wis found to be a medium. I was sitting at the table to the right of Mr. Monck, my companions being one on each side of me. Mr. Monck then, in a conversational tone, spoke of the subject which was upper most in the minds of all present, ami argued that from all persons, more especially from persons of a nervous or sensitive disposition, there emitted a something (they termed it nura, others magnetism) with which an intelligent spiritual agency clothed itself in order to he manifest to humanity. In the midst of the conversation I was atari led as, indeed, were all the company by a sudden peculiar rap almost immediately under my hand. All our hands were resting on tho table, and, after the lir.-t emotion of surprise attendant upon hearing tho first notification of the presence of this outside something, wo listened for more Io folio,i. Xor had we long to wait, for raps came with frequency from till pirts of the table; and I can vouch that none were produced by either of t.lio three rather sceptical persons pilling on my side of the table. It would not have been soothing to any very nervous person to notice Mr. Monck about this time, for in tho midst, of a sentence ho would over and agiiu g:v. a sort of twitch, apparently involuntary, his explanation lining that it occurred when ho fell a cold spirit-touch. JI is i.h'-h-e/s also at I raeb'd s >nte attention; his hands were fearfully colt), and one of them was trembling greatly, although ho seemed to try to c ntrol himself. At last Mr. Monck inquired whether spirits won; present, and three raps (the affirmative) coming in reply, three or four questions were put, with a view of finding whether the spirit was an intelligent one. I forgot what they were, for Mr. Monck suddenly observed, in an ordinary way. IliaL he saw a spirit hovering over tho head of one of the reporters present. We were going lo have a manifestation indeed. Jfow another change in Mr. Monck ex -it'"! our curiosity, for his hand was travelling rapidly as if writing, mid a large sheet of papa and a pencil being given him, lie dashed off, without once looking at. tho paper, booi j words which could not be well deciphered by any present. The words were then repeated, and tho question (not a little lo my astonishment) was, Will these gentlemen fairly report? SI., j fined together, concluded this question, and this Mr. Monck said ho believed to be the sigtivture of the spirit that generally makes him ils medium, SI.' standing for Samuel. (This was tho Christian numo, ho said, of an the light was put out, mid we were in darki ess that would i, total bad not the last, dying embers of the tire been just vis I.!, the bars. Now, of what, follows 1 pretend to explain nothing, but to of my recollection record tile tacts. There was sileur 1 fur as wo sat with joined hands in the spirit-circle, mid lbo 1 hissing voice, unlike any 1 have ever heard, but which 1 l,u Monck's, speaking from the other end ot th * table, 1 c.u what, was said. lie's m a trance, whispers someone; aim the thing I recoiled is, after a silenoo, hearing t he fall ns ot a li, r., and Mr. Monck, in his natural voice, saving, I ton t do tint:. don't. 1 have been told that he was suspended in 11- t ime before the fall, but as I could sen nothing, I cannot c my own responsibility. T he spirit-voice -I use the b riu tinguish between if ami the medium's ordinary vow 1 a and, from the direction of tho sounds, judge that Ihe in.-.i-.,[ entered the cabinet.

We all suv it,,,. watched it until it gave way to what, tho voice claimed to lv a -, face. I did not myself recognise this so distinctly as fee li;c..i...;,i tho light appeared to me to bo merely oval shaped, and il, -,,.1 marked features. Neither did I notice, I am glad to say, an earl y smell, which soino present noticed at the time. Looking r a moment at the gradually-expiring fire, which was alumsi on my r, I was aware that a person Imd passed between mo and il.iind 1 aim >! immediately heard Mr. Monck (still in a trance) spaiking behind in', llo said there was present the spirit of a Bristolian, who..> irum hi mentioned (it was, I think, recognised by somo o.ic nt tbe other end of tho table, I mil not sure), and said that, lie hid been drowned in sailing from this port. A loud voice a direct voic it. termed ihmi shouted Ship, ahoy!" and, to the best, of my belief. Mr. Monck v. e either speaking at the time, or instantly alter. Mr. Monck t i returned to tho cabinet, and wo saw more lights. About ties line m sang various tunes nt tho request of the spirit-voice, inehnhng n'i different selections as Auld lnng svne, " Abide with in.'

Wiisti are tub Spir it -Va ults? An engine driver and stoker on the M dland Railway, a few days ago, oalled at tho shop of a well-known temperance man in Wirksworth, Derbyshire, and asked him to show thorn where Messrs spirit-vaults were situate.

It does always appear to me very unaccountable that the state of the soul after death should be so completely veiled from our serious inquisitiveness. That in some sense it is proper that it should be so needa not bo said. But is not the sense in which it is so, the tarns sense in which it is proper there should be primitive circumstances, privations, and inflic tions in this our sinful stats? For one knows not how to believe that tome revelation of that next stage of our existence would not be more influential to a right procedure in this first, than such an absolute It is true that a profound darkness, which we know we aro destined ere long to enter, and soon to find ourselves in an amazing h-" '- is a striking object of contemplation. But the mind still, again and again, falls back from it, disappointed and uninstruetsd for want of some defined forms of reality to seise, retain, and permanently occupy it. In default of revelation, ws have to frame our conjectures on some E ;ue of analogy, which is itself arbitrary, and without any means of ringing it to the test of reason.
