Gentlemen; Sine my return from the
country, tvher I have been ipendiiijf some
puriiuii of llio summer, my attention lu
Uen culled to an article, copied into your
paper oflhe Slit Auui.l, which reflect no
wriou-ly on the religious fuith which I, in
common willi many others, liavo embraced
mid do dearly cherish, that I am confident
touisli, as if lie Imd passcj uiikiio ii you wi uot regard ino us impertinent or

au.Tered any passion, nreu'ii any passion to
rufllo it calm; a strength of understand
ing which worked rather than forced its
way through all obitntli, removing and
avoiding rather than overleaping them,
If profound aagncily, unshaken steadfast-
. ness of purpose, and entire- aubjnjjalion of
all tho passions which carry havoc through
ordinary minds and at times lay waste the
fairest nrotpecu of greatness nay, the din
cipline of those feelings which aio wont to
lull or seJuco genius and to mar and to
tdoud over the apectof virluo herself, join

aolute sclfdcnial, the most habitual and ex-
elusive devotion to principle if thee

The article I refer to professes to bo an
account of the "C'eresco Union," so called,
and of loiters from Mr. Warren Chase nnd
Mr. T. L. Nichols, defending the principles
of. that "Union," as legitimately (lowing
from Spiritualism and tending to the doc
trines of Socialism and Freo Lovo, nnd in
which it is said, among other things : "(jl-
course, as Pouricrists, or Individualism, or
Spirilualiitts, they repudioto mnrriago ns
mi nibiirary institution, and accept more
or less the "free-love philosophy."
It may be. for aught I know, that these
yi'iilleimn and their associates of the "Co-
reco Liiioii (Jo entertain I lie doctrines
here imputed to them, but I utterly deny
that they are, or can be doctrines embraced
by any "enlightened Spirituulist," or that
they can find any warrant In tho pure and
elevating teachings of the spiritual philoso
Spiritualism has from the beginning had
to encounter much of misrepresentation
from its opposers, and it is not to be won
dered at that it should also huvo to encoun
ter much real injury from ita professed fol
lowers. As lonir as we were few in num.
her nnd generally contemned, ihcre was
but little inducement for insincerity, to
covet our wealth nnd profen eur doctrines ;
but as our numbers are rapidly augmenting
all over the country, wo must not be sur
prised ut our experiencing tho fate with
which even the pure religion of Christ has
been visited by pretenders. Nor have wo
n right to expect, umid tho dillicultiea nnd
discouragements attending the inaugura
tion of a new faith, that all who are willing
to embrace it, can be ut ouco imbued with
a full knowledgoand understanding of all
itssiiblimo and beautiful truths, however
honest may bo their purposes or intelligeni
may be their searches after truth.
The most patient, the most untiring and
the most intelligent of tho investigators of
Spiritualism known full well, that wo huvo
but entered on lis threshold that ns vet
the groat object has been to demonstrate to
man tho reality of intercourse with tlJ0

else has yet been attempted thut a few

lamenting tho injurious effects of a great in

deemed there was no rodress but in a com
