An Interesttnc Lectara by Bt.
, D. U. GeU-
Rev. D. H. Gttissinifer.late of Lancaster,
new of New Yerk ciqt, delivered bis lec
ture en "Delusions," in the lecture room of
Grace church last evening, the entertain
ment being given under the auspices of the
Yeung Men's society connected with the
church. A geed audience was present te
hear the lecture, which was the first
in a course of three discourses te be given
at the same place and under the same
direction. The next lecture in course will
be by Rev. Dr. Greenwald en "The River
and Region of Jerdan," and the third,
and last will be delivered by the pastor
of Grace church, Rev. C. E. Houpt, en
"Sound." Before and after the lecture
last evening Miss Leila Bear, of the
Mozart quartet, sang with admirable
voice two very beautiful soles. Following
is an abstract of Mr. Geissinger's interest
ing and instructive description of the de
lusive whims and superstitions that have
filled and are filling men's minds :
Things are net always what they seem.
The world is full of delusions, cither be
cause we think that things are always
what they seem te be, or because we try
vainly te discover the hidden secrets of
the natural aud supernatural around us.
Fer instance, the ancients supposed the
rising ana setting sun was moving
around the cartli ; that the stars were
mere points of light ; that the
world was flat. Dante placed purgatory
in the ether side of the world te him, which
would be where we new live. Se, tee,
Columbus, when he discovered America,
supposed he had reached the East Indies.
Indeed, a geed definition of all science
would seem te be "that which is true
te-day and a lie te-morrow." Incredible
delusions have fallen te the let of men in
every agCj simply because they sought te
penetrate the mysteries of the spiritual
One great delusion is alchemy, a strange
name te the masses new. It is the science
of changing the nature of one substance
into that of another. There were believed
te exist two substances a metallic earth
and "sulphur," containing pure geld when
combined. AH substances contain these.
Separate all ethers out from these and we
have pure geld. One substance was the grand
elixir vita;, a red liquid. If this fell upon
any metallic substance, it changed the
substance into geld. The same wonderful
elixir could, if used in smaller quantities,
cure any disease. Anether substance was
the philosopher's stone of the second de
gree, whose use turned baser metals into
silver. After giving a long list of names
of the alchemists of ancient times, together
with somewhat of their history, hew that
even the most noted kings were patrons
of this science, and relating many quaint
and curious anecdotes and ridiculous
recipes of alchemists, the lecturer proceed
ed te the delusion called "astrology."
The science of prognostication, of pen
etrating the darkuess of futurity.
Stars, it was presumed, watch ever,
and typify by their conjunction the
joys ami sorrows of humanity. Geed
Queen Bess aud all the English rulers
down te William and Mary trusted te
prognostics. Cromwell patronized them.
Leuis XI., King of France and Catharine
de Medici most superstitiously believed in
them. The mode of castinir a horoscope
was described, and the drawing by a map
of all the stars visible one degree above
the horizon. Astrology disappeared,
however, with the advent of the Coperni Ceperni
can system of the worlds, leaving us
vestiges in the medical sign Rx and the
fearfully maltreated man en the first page
of the almanac. " Divination " next came
in for a share of consideration It referred
te all omens, signs, and arts of interpret
ing dreams. Hew often de foolish signs
insensibly sway the feelings! "What a
dread of Friday exists te this day !
Four days unlucky for marriage were
spoken of. But if we regard these things
at all, we should leek upon all signs as
geed signs, all bad signs as evidences of
lack of skill. The great "witch-mania,"
a subject of common credence for
250 years, was also portrayed. The sen
tence "ennzicta et cembusta" (found
guilty and burned) was often passed
against peer, old, inoffensive persons. As
many as 500 a year weie
burned in many places. Popes hurled
their anathemas against them, aud papal
nmippniiiii.-i ..a4- 4Vlalla "!, 1, . Cflillrinif
discovering and destroying their victims
with relentless ferocity, for whom the mere
charge amounted te conviction and
death. The intensity of affairs was
heightened by the fact that many of
these peer wretches, when put upon the
rack, would actually confess that they
were witches, or at least through fright
imagined that they were such. Iu the ex
tent of the terrific enormities thus prac
tised, the history of our American " Salem
witchcraft," in which nineteen persons and
une deg were hanged, sinks into utter in
significance, and yet it was a part of the
same spirit of superstition that possessed
the minds of almost every one in these
days. And we have new vestiges
of the things the horse shoe, the broom
stick, haunted houses, and the like, the
latter usually the work of living rogues.
Anether delusion briefly alluded te was
magnetism, mineral and animal, in which
the lectured showed the source and progress
of mesmerism. In conclusion the lecturer
touched upon financial delusions such as the
Mississippi scheme, and pointed out hew
in stock speculations there is a tendency
te set false values, and te held appear
ances as realities. But geed h as come out
of these delusions. Frem darkness we
arise te light. Chemistry has come out of
Alchemy, Astrology has given us astron
omy, the queen of scieuccs, and divination
has yielded place te the true revelation of
Reading Railroad Official.
About neon te-day, the dummy engine
"Transit" passed south through this city
ever the Quarryville railroad. It had en
beard J. Lewrio Bell, general freight agent
of the Reading company, William Lerenz,
chief engineer, and several ethers. The
car stepped at the Stevens house; depot for
a short time, where Maj. It. AV. Shcnk
was taken en beard. It then started towards
Quarryville and the party dined with
David Bair at Iless's station and took a
leek nt the ero mines in that vicinity.
The coroner's inquest ou the body of
Isaac Knight, who was killed en the cars
at Columbia, en Saturday night, was con
concluded this afternoon at the coroner's
office in the court house. The jury found
that the man died from injuries received
by being struck by Columbia accommoda
tion. The employees of the railroad were
xeneraUd from all blame.
Menty Plenty and Trade Quiet.
Te-morrow will be the First of April,
the day in the year which in this aity and
county has from time immemorial been
fixed en as annual settling day. Fer some
years past innovations have been making
in the custom, and owing te the great in
convenience resulting te everybody where
everybody wants te be waited upon
at the same time, the mere prudent
portion of the business community, who
have bank or store accounts te settle, at

April, thus avoiding the crush and an noy ney

Thus far this year everybody appears te
be happy and nobody greatly hurried.
The banks have millions te lend en geed
security, but the borrowers are few.
Where 10,000 was wanted a few years
age there is net $1,000 wanted new. Man
ufactures are prospering, but need lit

people are net doing business with a rush,
most of them are en a geed financial basis
and are net troubled with bills payable.

There is no doubt that the generally 1
geed crops of last year, and especially the

and traders, must be credited with helping
te bring about the geed times and easy

born in West Lampertcr township. His
early life was spent mostly in that town

Strasburg, where he was apprenticed te a
Mr. Connelly and learned the hatting busi

years in Strasburg and also carried en the
manufacture and sale of hats in this city,
doing business en North Queen street,
near Orange, in partnership with Jacob
Hess. Returning te Strasburg he carried
en business there for some time, and about
1849 was appointed postmaster, which po

Netwithktanding "the hard times"
many new buildings aie being erected in
Fulton township. Jehn Wright is putting
up a residence near Miller's tanyard;
Tem Jenes a new barn near Eldera ; David
Deeverone near the old "Black Bear;"
Rebert Clark a bam near Fulton Heuse ;
Mrs. Grell a residence near Pcnn Hill ;
Mrs. Harlan a residence near Arcadia;
Timethy Haines, near Peach Bettem, is
erecting a large tobacco house, and C.
Bradley one at his residence, near Wake
field. In Fairfield several persons are
putting up large houses in which te store
tobacco the coming season.
The new county bridge across Peters'
creek, near Peach Bettem, is completed,
and is ready for inspection. We doubt
very much as te whether the stone work
is' a first-class job. Stone were abundant,
and larger ones than havn been used iu the
walls would have made it better fitted te
resist the rapid current of the creek in
times of heavy freshets.
The report that the "Narrow Guage"
was likely te go into the hands of ether
parties, proves te be incorrect. There is a
prospect that means will be found te ex
tend the track down te both banks of the
river during the present season.
There will net be as many first of April

It has been suggested that the colored
fraternity at Arcadia station held a ' big
talk" with C. Henry Haines, the father of
the name Arcadia, and have him decide
whether their church shall be named "Mt.
Helly," "Ham Hellew," "Rigbey's
Turkey's Roest " or "Arcadia."

It can almost be asserted that St. Jacob's Oil
works wonders. Shortly before the Xew Year,
when I visited my family in Mitchell, I found
my son Edward, a lad little mere than ten
years old, very siek. He suffered with Rheu
matism, and se terribly that he was perfectly
stillin his limbs, could net possibly walk, and
had te be carried from place te place. At once
I sent for seme St. Jacob's Oil, used it accord
ing te directions, anil in a few days could sec
evidence of considerable improvement. On
the tenth of this month I again visited my
family and was astonished te find him well
and hearty. He ence mera has fresh color iu
his face and ean go te school again. When
ever the old trouble threatens te return, relief
is immediately secured by the use of the cele
brated St. Jacob's Oil. Frem sheer joy ever

NEEDS OF NEW YORK DEMOCRATS.
Ex-Governer Deraheliner Explaining the
Presidential Chances In Hts State.
Er-Governer Dersheimer, of New Yerk,
arrived at the West End hotel, Philadel
phia, from Washington late last evening,
where he had been arguing a case in the
supreme court. He looked tired, but con
sented te say what he thought of the pos
sible Democratic candidates who may
carry the vote of New Yerk.
"Any candidate who can concentrate the
Democratic vote of New Yerk can carry
the state beyond perad venture," he replied
te the opening query.
"Can Mr. Tilden de that ?" was asked.
"Don't ask me about Mr. Tilden. I
knew nothing about him and have net
spoken with him for two years, " he re

" Simply in his senatorial record. That
has been such as would necessarily attract
te him the confidence of business men. "
"Has he net cultivated a following

than political. "
" Would Mr. Seymour concentrate the
vote, or would he run even under the
" Mr. Seymour, I believe, is in that po
sition that no political ambition would
tempt him. He is 70 years old and his
highest desire is te exert an influence en
national affairs without taking any office
that would cause him te renounce his re
tirement from active life. Yeu must ex
cuse me from talking further, as I have no
further information outside of the news
papers and ever since I have been in Wash
ington have talked politics only casually."
The reporter accordingly left the ex
governor te his bath.
