From tho Providence, U. 1, Journal, "REMARKABLE PHENOMENA OP ANIMAL MAGNETISM. Having received of Dr. I'oycn, n polite invitation to witness n case of magiictical somnambulism, now under his cliarfja al Pawlucket, wi'.li the assurance that an hour there spent, "would ho ono of t lie most wonderful of my life," I went lat evening, occompanied by n gentleman of the highest integrity, wlio witnessed with mo llio facts I am about to relate, and who would give testimony to tho truth. At half past 7 o' clock, vve went to the boarding house of the Somnambulist, (Miss Cynthia Uleason.) whom wo found "sitting, clothed, and in her right mind," conversing with some twolvo or fifteen ladies and gentlemen. On being introduced, she arose from her seat and very modestly gave her hand, say ing, "I nm happy to wo you." She is rath cr tall and slendcr,--lias large prominent eyes, and an expression of purity, of reli gious thought, rests upon her well-marked features, which arc rather palo than fair. Wishing to observe something in her man Jicr of conversing, her looks, thoughts, and tone of voice, while in her "natural state," I began inquiring into the 6tatc of her health, and whether she had experienced benefit from magnetism ? She replied, "I think I am better than I was last night, nnd feel much better for being magneti zed." Do you like it f one osked. "0,1 think I have been operated upon long enough it is time some ono took my place.' .At this moment, Dr. I'oyon, who stood by my side, bcloro the fire, at the distance of nbout eight feet from the patient, touched my foot with his as a sign that he had com. menced magnetizing her with his will. I instantly looked at iny watch, and marked the moment when tho operation commen ced, being curious to watch every move -mcntof the magnclizcr, whose magic pow er seems not less wonderful than the clair voyance of tho Somnatnbulo. 1 first looked at him. He stood perfect. ' ly still, Ills oyos firmly fixed on the patient, not on her cye3, for tho had slightly turned lier head, which rested on the back of tho rocking chair in which sho was silting, with a deep and earnest look of entreaty nnd resolve of wishing and loilling: It was that fervent speaking expression of the soul, which no one can voluntarily give to his countenance, who has not well learn ed that wisest lesson that most heroic of arts la rule his spirit. In nbout half a minute her cyo-lids trembled anil fell her head nodded her hands dropped lifelessly; and in ono minute- and a half her sleep seemed as profound and complete, save a gentle, breathing, as the lo?t deep sleep that fulls upon mortals ! Thai supernal!) lal going to sleep, to mo, was a moment snlcinly impressive. In that mysterious slumber, that "deep sleep" of the senses, I saw an emblem of the sublimity of death! Standing before thai senseless body that faintly-breathing, half-living corpse, I questioned within myself more deeply than ever before what i? tho human soul ? And what are the true laws of its action nnd existence? Alas! there was no responsive philosophy, which, at such a moment, could satisfactorily explain tho momentous prob jem,' Hut I feel, and there was consolation in this feeling, for the aching want of truo wisdom and soul science, that God nnd Eternity arc only able to answer to these mystcrioiH phenomena these apparitions of tho Infinite nnd Unknown. But this was a time for obiervalion, and not refkc tion. Dr. P. now advanced and stood at about two feet from tho Somnnrnbulisl ; when he inclined his head towards her touched gently her forehead with his ex tended fingers; then drew his hands rapid, ly down her arm", sometimes with a slight friction ; threw them off suddenly at right angles; brought ihem again over to her forehead, frequently resting I hem a moment upon the top of tho head. These gestures were continued about two minute'-, during which the patient drew a lung breath, which seemed more expressive of deep emotion than physical pain. There was "something in it too tranquil for a sigh. Ii was like the breathing which wo some times witness in a sleeping child, when its whole being lies melted into one delicious sense of deepest and sweetest repose. Ho now ceased magnetizing her by ex ternal operations. Her hands grew cold, her pulse was quick nnd tremulous. No impressions could now bo made upon her senses ; she was dumb and deaf nnd dead to all except her mngnclizer ! Tho waim 'principle of Life winch gives sensation to every nerve was temporarily withdrawn from its cage of clay, and left it almost as cold nnd inanimate as the empty sepulchre of the risen Spirit. Her magnclizcr, after we had questioned her in vain, spuko to Iter in a low voice about her case. She replied with true and beautiful emphasis with a calm and eloquent earnestness, "This is the Lord's doing ! but it is not wonderful in our eyes. It is only the igno rant who cannot understand it. If people would only read and study more, they would know more about theso things" "Yes," said Dr. P. "if people spent less time in bar-rooms, and mora in seeking to know what is truth in philpsophy and reli gion, it would bo better for them, much better." "O yes," was her reply, "there is , (calling tho name,) he refused to let his daughter havo a ticket to attend your lectures. When you meet him in the street, you would think he was a gentle man ; but " hero she spoke in strong and unreserved, but perfectly calm unddo. corous language, uf the character of the individual sho alluded to. At my request, I was then put in communication with her, eirnply by the wish and will ol her luaguc tizer, that she would answer my questions and talk with mo. Instantly although her head was turned from me, her eyes shut, and no audible wishes had been expressed slio nodded assent to the mental request of Dr. 1'., rased her right hand feebly and extended it towards me. I inquired, Arc you al rest? bhe Baid Yes. Have you ntlended church to-day? Ans. I have. Whom did you hear preach? An. Mr. Tall. I was going to continue, when she suddenly withdrew her hand, and instantly became to me as one dead. I looked up and saw that the eyes of tho inagnetizer were again upon her. lie confessed, by a tmilo and a wink, that he hud put nn end to our conversation. He afterwards per mitted her to converse with anyone who bad the curiosity to ask her questions. Ho then repeated before her tho former I magnetic gestures, extending his finger? I ireqiieniiy to ttiu cyeurnws anil inrencau in order to effect lucidity wishing nnd willing with all his might. Once ho spoke his wishes aloud, "that her mind would leave tho brain, would come out of the body, and see what should be held ovor or behind her." She answered "I will try." I then took a watch key from my pocket nnd hold it ono or two inches directly above her head. Dr. I'. nkcd what it was. She said "Is it not something steel?" "Hut tell us what object it "I cannot tell ; ii hurts my eyes." I then look a bonk and held it in llio fame position. She answer cd immediately, "It Is a book ;" and with an emphasis that indicated certain know ledge. Before, she had rather, by the pe culiar inflections of her volco, nskud, than told what tho object was. A huge bunch nf peacocks' feathers was held over her. She saiil promptly, "It is a bunch of feath cr3." John Street, Erq. placed a large pencil case several inches above her head ; Dr. 1'. nsked her li toll what it was ; she answered readily it is a pencil." Those experiments wore repealed for sometime : she had failed in naming the watch key, but succeeded in every other instance. She complained to Dr. P. that she "loll confused," lie again magnetised her, with the intention to calm her mind nnd tran quilizc the nerves. I then expressed a de sire as she had told her magnctiscr that she saw tho objects "through his mind," and that, in her own language, "his spirit witnessed with her spirit" to nut her clairvoyance to a father test, by concealing llio object Irom Dr. f . 1 took from my pocket a small knife, very Bimll, and held it in my shut hand over her head. Dr. P. begged earnestly that she would "tell im mediately what it was;" she said promptly, "It is a penknife !" Ho then asked her to tell him the exact time of tho evening ; but her answer was not correct by nny wntch. He then magnetised her more. I held my watch above her head with llio face down. She said,"it Is half past 0 o'clock." It was within ono minute of the truth. Dr. P. ngain wished her to converse with me; nnd having heard that in her natural slate she had expressed some doubts and tears as to the propriety and rectitude of her submitting herself to tho operations of magneti.-m, owing to the sneers ol tho in credulous nnd tho frowns of the bigoted; I assured her I could sec no harm, but much good resulting from these experiments, which she fullered to be made for the ben cfit of her health, and the high gratification nf the wise and good. Thai all true phi. losnphy and religion nre friend-!, and can never operate against each oilier. Don't ynu know, I said, that the perfect ono "went about doing good?" That he re stored a withered hand, opened the nyes of tho Ulmu ami in Ins sympathy nnd benev olence turned water into wmo lor his friends? "Oh ! yes," said she, "it was Jo sus." Well, I replied, none bill the benev olent the good, can do these things. "None can do thrso things except it be given mm ni i no r aider." As I said these words, she pressed my hand ns if she found sympathy in tho thought. I Inquired do you not thin!: il would bo a groal blessing to those who arc sick who cannot sleep, lo bo put to resl asyou are? Sho replied, "it would bo a groal blessing indeed." J)r. P. inquired if sho know the profession of tin: person with whom she was convers'ng. She said, "he reads a good deal, nnd I should think he was n Teacher!" I replied, I am ; and shall take pleasuro in giving my scholars nn account of tho facts I am witnessing. She said, "you may tell them from me, if you please, that I do not these things for money for love of worldly gam but for my own benefit and tho good of my fellow creatures." Dr. P; a-ked her if sue would havo some drink. She said, "yes." A small tumbler of water was brought in. which I presented to her lips. Sho refused to drink, and seemed entirely unconscious. Dr. P. then took tho water placed his fingers on ihocdge of the tumbler, held it a short time in this position, then gave it into her hand. Shu carried il to her mouHi sipped moderately until it was ubnut two thirds exhausted, nnd gave il back to her magnctiscr. He asked her what sho had drank. Sho tan), "it was some ol Mr Fales' sweet wine." He remarked, that that was what he had wished il might bo to her. IIo then said to her, I wish ynu to awake in fix minutes precisely, from this time. He previously had requested her to remember When she awoke, having teen the hunch of feathers, and the word clar voyanic. Several gentlemen held watches lo count the lime. In 5 minutes the sighed brought her hand to her head gave symptoms of awakening. Dr. P. having been out of tho room, now entered and stood about C feet from her. At llio end of the sixth minute she partly opened her eyes, and looked around with a smile of diffi dence. On being asked if sho felt bright, she looked at Dr. P., threw her hand to wards him, and said with much naivete, "I wish you would wake mo up." lie said, 'I will." At tho same lime telling us with n wink; thai he would do the contrary. He looked again steadily upon her, and in a moment she fell back into that deep, mysterious bleep, moro wonderful because less frequently witnessed, than that more mysterious, and sublimely awful sleep of ueam, in which so many ot the living, mo ving, beautiful forms of Life, hourly lie down, in the bosom of their mother, hid forever from mortal eyes, beneath the ample folds of that great, green mantlo.thc wind ing sheet that enshrouds us all. 1 have written what I havo seen, and believe to be true; yet I must confess I have felt the while as though I was recording fiction, and have not faith that thoso who will take the trouble to read, will ragard it as any thing else. A painful reminiscence of the Salem Tragedy, recently revived by read ing the "Life of Cotton Mathor," induces me to withold my nutno until I may be convinced it will subserve tho cause of sci enco to give it. SIllPWRECK-70 LIVES LOST. New Yoiik, Nuv. 23. In our paper of yesterday we announced the loss of this ship, and expressed hopes that the passengers and crow would be saved. Mr Minium, uno of tho owners of the ship, relumed last evening at C o'clock from tho wreck, and gave us tho melan choly account of her loss. The ship Bristol arrived off Sandy Hook liar on Sunday evening at 9 o'clock, but not seeing any pilot boat, stood off at 11 o'clock, tho Highland Light bearing W. N. W. Al a quarter before four, A.M. sho struck on Far Rockway Bar, and we regret lo stnlo that three cnuin and sixty steerage, passengers, and four of the crew were droicncd J The names of the cabin passengers lost were Mr. Donnelly, a son- in-law ot the laic Michael llngan, nnd I wo gentlemen of the name of Charlton tho cook and steward, threw themselves overboard, Those that came nn shore describe the lamentable catastrophe in terms almost loo shocking to record. Mothers calling to their children, nnd husbands fur their wives, nnd on tho next wave thev were buried in the deep. 1 ho ship went ashore, on tho bar, nt 4 A. M. on Monday, the wind blowing o sale from the S. E. As soon as she struck she breached to the wind and healed seaward, The steerage passengers rushed on deck and were swept away by tho waves almost ns 60011 ns they made their appearance. llio cabin passengers remained below, un- till the deck cabin wns washed off. in which time Captain McKown had made preparations for their safety, ns far as lay in his power, by which the majority of them vere savcu, together with many of the 6tcerage passengers. Tho ship had bilged nnd gone to pieces nt our Intest advices. The passengers saved, had nothing hut what they stood in; Their trunks, which had drifted ashore, were immediately bro ken opon by the "toons mr demons" on shore, nnd their contents stolen, Among other things, Mrs Donnelly was robbed of a valuable case of jewels; ionic ot winch were publicly paraded, ns we nre told, by an individual who can be traced "Is lliere not some seciet curfc. Some hidden iliumlcr in llic sioies of Heaven, lied will) uncommon wrath," To blast such iniquity; Where arb wis getting to? Look ing over one ol our c.vchango papers a very handsome, large paper too wo casu ally read nn nrlicle running thus : "The keel ol a now schooner was laid a few days since; by Mr. G. Barber, al his shipyard, &c," Phis, together with nnolh cr ol the "same dimensions, will he launch cd,'' &c, "When il is nscerlaincd that vessels can bo constructed here ns cheap us on the toiccr lakes," 6ic. And another thus : "Fnrly-fivn thousand dollars have been siib-crihi'd, for llio purpose of constructing a steamboat, in ply between this place and Uincago, (i:c.

We Inst week published an article from a Lt.ndon paper treating at somo length on Dr. Buck land's forthcoming work on Geology. We to day publish another nrlicle on the same subject, but taking a different, and in our estimation, more rationnl viewof this inter cslmg science. Wcarc aware that with some this is forbidden ground ; and unless we are misinformed, a distinguished divine in this vicinity not long since published to tho world as his deliberate conviction, that, unle'83 the study of chemistry and geology was arrested, wo should make the rising generation infidels and materialists. These arc sentiments unworthy the man who ut tered them, and the age in which we live Such opposition to the progreis of know. lodge is not only useless, but hurtful ; for, though it may retard, il wi)l not prevent the inarch of improvoncnt ; and by driving scientific learning into even temporary op- positiin to sacred truth, puts it to a task not congenial with its lofiy spirit. Open wide the storehouse of knowledge let us conlcmnjatc the Creator through all hi wondLi, works and we havo no fears for tho causo of truth and religion; fur who is able to retain in broad sunshine the erroneous impressions of senses deceived by obscurity and misled by imagination, unless he wilfully shuts his eyes lest he should be undeceived.

The states that remain to be heard from arc, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana Mississippi and Alabama of which the three first have been conceded to V. B., and the latter claimed by the Whigs. The election in Illinois, however, has been a very close one, and the result is considered doubtful. From tho other states wo have littlo information. J he riEXT Congiiess.

Let the fact bo remembered- One of the North Carolina electors was killed a few days since, by the upsetting of a stage, Gen. Jackson Is not dead, as reported some days since. Texas and Mexico. We learn from the New Orleans Bulletin that a division of the Mexican army left the city of Mex ico about the 15ih tilt, for llio invasion of I'oxas. A large number of Bappors, mi ners, pioneers, &c. it appears, were attach ed to the division, and will in all probability effect much, until coming in contact with the forces of Texas. It was feared that some calamitous occurrences might ensue in the city of Mexico on the departure of tho troops alluded to, in consequence of somo exasperation of feeling existing against the American portion of residents in the city. Nothing of the kind, however, had transpired up to the latest dates. From the Now Orleans Advertiser we learn that several expresses had arrived at Tampico, previous to the sailing of the schooner Lady Hope, announcing the ap proach of the Texan army to Matamoras, probably under tho command of General Rusk. If this rumor bo true, Matamoras will probaly fall into the hands of the Tex ans. A few days, however will bring us some thing conclusive in these matters. LmErtiA Capt. Hitchcock, of the ar my, has been appointed Guv. of Liberia. Texas. David G.
