SEPT 7th 1847 Dear Codding The following question haa been put some of our in ibe Ministry who are members of M E Rock River Conference What was done wilh address aud documents relating to lUe slaving of two yaung women by Mr Mitchell which the Liberty Association of Wisconsin forwarded by a committee lo your Some of of the Conference simply return to thia question the following reply The com- who presented after the ness had progressed somewhat withdrew them j This answer involved mailer in some obscurity to the mind of at least one of our leading brethren Rev N A brief of the fads of the case however removed the lhat were settling il and as other minds might labor under the same ty and might be relieved by the same process 1 propose by your courtesy lo present to public I made to him not intending by this however to anticipate Ihu which committee on the case will malte at next annual meeting of the Liberty Association During the session of Conference in August I visited Chicago and through kind agency of Br Peck of placed in hands of Bishop Waugh the address and documents agreeably lo the arrangement of the committee and the der of Liberty Association The op staled from his chair to the Conference of documents and address which hi had received and by a of the Conference they wece referred to a which committee had been previously appointed lo a matter of difficulty existing between Mr Mitchell and the official members of the street Church in Chicago stage of proceedings a nent member of the Church one who is an active Liberty man gested to me of my drawing the documents which bad been presented to the Conference slating aa a reason fur my so doing that a committee pf the Church broughl in be- fore the committee to whom the documents were eight charges against Mr Mitchell and that specifications under one of charges were lhat he had sent two free young women from Wisconsin into chnllel it was possible lhat Mr Mitchell denounce whole ment as being persecution bul lie could not do this if the documents were withdrawn and they might then be called up by of evidence In reflecting on the subject it appeared to me that the efforts of the Clark street Church would secuie Conference action which the Liberty Association ing to hence that ing of documents would be justified by Association il il tended to thul provided that no unfavorable j would be produced by such dru There was danger however lest some minds should seine upon the fact of the withdrawal and use il in such a manner as to biing odium on the Liberty tion by asserting thai it was unable to maintain the position il had assumed in re- lation to Mr had backed out in a disgraceful manner and they might possibly adduce of as a proof of innocence of Mr Mitchell For the purpose therefore of ing on the one hand as far as I could con- wilh our brethren who hau undertaken in behalf of God's poor I consented lo withdrawing of menls fur two or three days and lo guard on the other hand against any ble impressions which evil-disposed or uninformed persons might endeavor lo produce 1 f expressly that the Inight be considered as withdrawn fur two or three mly and ut the eud of thai tune they would be presumed again and thai if il was necessary to obtain a vole of Iho Conference in order that I might do this then 1 would on no account draw them as 1 feared the impression that such a vole would create The member of the church who proposed the withdrawal agreed wilh this sentiment and I proposed to him to lake charge of mailer and act for me as agent On entering the Conference the morning 1 was surprised to find a spirited debate going on a motion before the body thai leave be given lo the committee lo withdraw the documents Very ly however to the relief of my the molion was 1 informed that a tion passed in tbe that be and then returned to the committee who presented them In debate above referred to James Mitchell John T Mitchell end Slebbins strenuously advocated the sity of retaining the documents and having a thorough investigation When er the committee came to lhal charge in the list of Mr Mitchell staled that he not prepared to go into a trial reported ibis matter to stating that to Mr had declined going in- to an of the matter and the appointment of a committee to try the case The Conference ed to appoint a committee of five before whom the trial is to take place when Mr Mitchell in ready as parly preferring the charges were ready at the Conference Mr Mitchell has been superannuated for one year This 1 believe is the first instance in history of the Methodist body where a member has been wilh charges Which he was not prepared to meet standing against him It is duly of the committee on his case to henr the of bulb parties make a record of them and report to the next Conference when each parly will additional testimony if they desire it and address the body and then will the of the Conference be taken One additional thought Three ears spoke in favor of the retaining of the documents and urged aa a reason for so doing the of the mailer and ils extensive agitation Three other speakers urged the appointing of a committee of five to try case each of whom argued the necessity of it from the agitated of the public mind relative to it From this it will be seen lhal the ments are lo be copied and the copy is lo be reserved by the committee to be used in the trial Yours for Liberty EDWARD MISCELLANY POUGHKEEPSIE We have been anxiously wailing to see the book of young Davis or some notice of it ever since seeing in the New York pers the glorious and almost impossible objects which il promised to realize The following candid and able we lake from the Weekly It must interest the curious among our readers Our readers will remember that our New York Correspondent announced some weeks ago a remarkable book an ing lo be The Principles of ture her Divine Revelations and u Voice to Mankind by and through SON DAVIS the Seer nnd Clairvoyant Published by S S Lyon William The bonk is an octavo of about 800 pages and the of we shall now of il will bear no sort of proportion lo the labor il has cost us We have searched through these 800 pages wilh aid of midnight oil and without lhal of any foregone conclusion and have uot been able to find any thing believing which was not revealed before Nol lhal there is nothing in it worth believing on the contrary it contains a vast amount of glorious in att admirable spirit but expressed in an bose anJ almost insufferable We are ready lo concede lhat it must go to form a part of the Mesmeric in our days which so far as il has gone is surely worthy After u examination of book not u thorough one but as much so as a week's leisure permit nnd some with circumstances thai have surrounded the up of it we see no way ing conclusion lhal Mesmerism does put its subjects into a condition more able than tilts natural or normal one as il is technically called for the exercise of reflective How far it can confer new powere of perception or enhance the far it can enable its subjects lo see in past present or future out use ol corporeal senses what they could nol see wilh we gut not much light on from book Mr the scribe of much on this point He would have us believe that young and uneducated Davis has in Ibis book slated a vast number of fuels which he had never perceived in his slate and the knowledge of which owes entirely to the new condition in which he was placed by Mesmerism But to our mind the book as a whole does nol prove t that he lo Ibe knowledge of any new facts by his perceptive faculties while in Mesmeric slate We iire inclined lo admit that he was in in which he could remember nnd reason better than in his state We know not how to avoid he conclusion thai elevation of reasoning faculty was caused by an almost disjunction from the body for a lime This is admitting a great deal Establish this and a strong light is thrown on greatest of future but it can not be said to be new tight nor does it come now wilh any er than heretofore Great pains is taken in the quite able in- to show lhal Davis was a ple unsophisticated of good moral character bul of very humblest ry pretensions And abstruse lations and scientific lenns which form the staple of his are referred to as proof that Mesmerism conferred on him the power of perceiving that of which hn was profoundly ignorant nay of traveling in a moment lo the most worlds and even back into past HOI Ids not tfi say forward into future ones and teeing occurrences iti We think ibey prove no such sincerity of any of parties j concerned we believe are entirely mistaken The book just whal one would from such a enormous size is no matter of der for it embraces all possible subjects de ommbat rebut el as they say at and is no more ihao have entered at this age of world into the mind of any lad of age and from conversations preaching tic and especially into of a Mesmeric subject thrown as mailer of course inlo company of ultra There U a certain thread of order in the general arrangement of thu book but in the particular lectures then is tautology and the important siona are mixed up with nonsense It is evidently work of an uneducated mind in remarkable elate of mental mind full of which ii does not know how to express and of remembered of which il not know he use by side with the most important truths first developed in commonly called or in those of or Fourier Of Dr Channing or Theodore Parker are the such might bo looked for in a school composition by way goes lo convince us that Mr thu scribe has been ful and if lo make the book arid readable he had used the erary acumen which he displays in his in- lie would have pruned it of at half ils wordy exuberance As il is the book has not the chance in lo become even so much as and prolix of which in spile of their very interesting doctrines have lain buried in for a couple of generations The of popular Theology may smooth down their hair and unfasten tongues from of fur there is not slightest danger lo creeds from when done up in a book as this We fill our for weeks wilh most satisfactory of what have said copied from book bul we lo leave our to read lor themselves If it should turn out that we are ken and lhal Mr Davis has added lo the stock of his knowledge and as tlie book will not lhat we by proved any better worth A- a deal which no doubt the honestly believed he vpirilually saw nnd but which we set down as idle and dreaming there is n deal of important fact and rational conclusion There is a moral tone and temper a calm catholicity of spirit which is admirable The motto of tbe first part of the book is itself worth its price ever that may be But if some mailer of English had taken io hand the leading of the great writers which thine through the misls of Davis's Revelations and thrown them into a compact readable of one quarter the size he would done a much greater service to We look upon Davis's book as an effect than as a cause It shows what tin great seeing and minds are doing for Ihu world They make a far deeper impression upon the mass than is perceived Mesmerize any fair recipient mind any where in broad Christendom under nny false creed or system and er it from the old surrounding influences anil we presume you will find in it lhal calm faith in God lhal hope ot progress and deep brotherly love which have been in young Davis In ibis sense the book before us is a revelation The world gels leal as fast us it is reaHy to receive them it is ready to receive false ones much faster than it gels When WB say this book will not win a popular reception we the that H is nol whal may be called nn imposition except so
