eye rested upon us in an intensity or antici
"Do you believe in spirits?"
Our answer was not immediately to the
point, nor by no means satisfactory; wo
intended as much, in order to have him dis
course upon his delightful speculations.
"We are living almost continually," ho
remarked, "fn the spirit world; wo are in
constant communication with it, but unfortu
nately for us, there are two classes of spirits
good and evil. They exercise a will over
us, at times, for vice or virtue, and often

or more of these are broken over tho heads
of any person who may happen to bo on

been remiss in making enquiries, of persons
whom we supposed would be the most likely
to afford us tho necessary information on the

this: That a Turkaskcd a Spaniard at
