TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—ln your issue of to-day I find an account of a mesmeric seance held in the Athenieum Hall, Melbourne, before a large and select audience, presided over by the medical faculty, when strange things took place, and men could swallow baneful drugs with impunity. Surely beneath this lies the secret of the Apostles' immunity from the evil effects of poisons, being assured that "if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them." "He that hath eyes to see let him see."
Truly, knowledge is power, and once we grasp the method of illuminating and using that subtle influence that operates in mesmerism, I fancy we will have put forth our hand and have taken of the " tree of life." Even now we can by the new system preserve dead bodies ; yea, even though they have commenced to decay. The seeking is bringing forth the finding; importunate knocking is opening the door into tho world of mystery.—l am, etc., A Seeker. Dunedin, May 17.
