EDITORS: TABLE.

“Festivals, when duly observed, attach men to the civil and religious institutions of their country; it is an evil, therefore, when they fall into disuse. Who is there who does not recollect their effect upon himself in early life ?" — SOUTHEY.

The American people have two peculiar festivals, each connected with their history, and therefore of great importance in giving power and distinctness to their nationality.

THE FOURTH OF JULY is the exponent of independence and civil freedom. THANKSGIVING DAY is the national pledge of Christian faith in God, acknowledging him as the dispenser of blessings. These two festivals should be joyfully and universally observed throughout our wbole country, and thus incorporated in our habits of thought as inseparable from American life.

Our Independence Day is thus celebratod. Wherever an American is found, the Fourth of July is a festival; and those nations who sit in chains and darkness feel that there is bope even for them, when the American flag is raised in the triumph of freedom. Would not the light of liberty be dimmed were this observance to cease?

Thanksgiving Day is a festival of ancient date in New England, being established there soon after the settlement of Boston. The observance has been gradually extending; and, for a few years past, efforts have been made to have a fixed day, which shall be universally observed throughout our whole country. The “Lady's Book" was the pioneer in this endeavor to give unity to the idea of Thanksgiving Day, and thus inake it a national observance.

The last Thursday in November was selected as the day, on the whole, most appropriate. Last year, twenty-nine States, and all the Territories, united in the festival. This year, we trust that Virginia and Vermont will come into this arrangement, and that the Governors of each and all the States and Territories will appoint Thursday, the 25th of November, as the Day of Thanksgiving.

The year 1852 would thus be an era from which to date the establishment of this national festival; and henceforth, wherever an American is found, the last Thursday in November would be the Thanksgiving Day. Families may be separated so widely that personal reunion would be impossible; still this festival, like the Fourth of July, will bring every American heart into harmony with his home and his country. The influence of such an American festival } on foreigners would also be salutary, by showing them that our people acknowledge the Lord as our God. In our own wide land, from the St. John's to the Rio Grande, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, every heart would, on one day in each year, beat in unison of enjoyment and thaakfulness.

Therefore, we hope to witness this year the first of these national festivals.

vel than any the mediums have pretended to set forth. But there is one consolation. The folly and wickedness of these delusions are harmless and weak compared with those that resulted from the witchcraft manis of 1692.

During that sad year, the delusion had its beginning and ending, so far as the tragic drama was enacted. It opened in the following manner: Near the close of the month of February, 1692, two little girls in the family of the Rer. Mr. Parris, Elizabeth, his daughter, aged nine, and Abigail Williams, his niece, about twelve years of age, together with a young girl of the neighborhood, named Ann Putnam, began to act in a strange and unaccountable manner. They would creep into holes, and under benches and chairs, and put themselves into odd postures, make antic gestures, and utter loud outcries, and ridiculous, incoherent, and unintelligible expressions. The attention of the family was arrested. No account or explanation of the conduct of the children could be given, and so physicians were called in and consulted. One of these sapient men gave it as his opinion that the children were bewitched! From this encouragement, the delusion went on gathering strength and power in its frightful course, till the lives of twenty innocent persons, accused of witchcraft, bad been sacrificed, a number of others condemned, and over three hundred had suffered, more or less severely, from imprisonment, or by fleeing from their homes.

Such scenes cannot be re-enacted. The rappers may take money from their dupes; they cannot touch those who refuse to be deluded by their mummeries. Thus we find our people have made sensible progress during the last one hundred and sixty years. Still the tendency of mind, which puts faith in marvels of human invention, while rejecting God's Word as the only rule of moral and spiritual enlightenment, is still witnessed ; and the selfishness which uses this weakness for its own wicked purposes of gaining power and money is now manifested in a most disgusting form. The following is taken from the “Boston Courier, ** a paper of high repute in that city :

“ A CONVENTION OF “SPIRITUALISTS. -A convention of prom fessed believers in spiritual manifestations'-men and women-assembled in Washingtonian Hall, Bromfield Street, yesterday morning (August 6th). It was a singular collection of dupes and fanatics, resembling more a congre gation of lunatics than a company of rational creatures, In fact, we have never seen the like outside the walls of a mad-house."

We cannot enter into the details of this revolting spectacle, where men and women seemed striving to outdo each other in fanatical fooleries. But though the rap pings, like the witchcraft delusion, were originated by females, we find the deception encouraged and systematized by men for their own adrantage, in a far greater de gree than by our sex. The officers and chief actors in this “ Spiritualists' Convention" were men.

Our readers have no sympathy with these insane more ments, and our only reason for noticing the subject is that, when our “Book," a century hence, is referred to as a specimen of the literature of the nineteenth century, it may be apparent we did not, even by silence, assent to the humbug-to use a vulgar, but for this folly a most appro priate pame-of "spirit rappers."

DELUSIONS.—It is a mortifying fact that people love to be deceived. Many choose to live in darkness when the light 3 is all around them: it would seem impossible they should be thus blind, did we not have the evidence of their folly before us. How any sane person can put faith in spirit rappings, and the manifestations made by the cunning speculators in this new way of divination, is a greater mar.
