CONCLUSION OF THE ZOIST.

believed in scarcely one instance out of a hundred-nor indeed ever believed unless they are free from the possibility of lucky guess or trickery and are verified by ascertainment of the facts. A host of clairvoyants are impostors, and no money should be paid to a clairvoyant unless on the understanding that he or she cannot guarantee you a true clairvoyance; for even in the genuine the power is uncertain. We have also to regret that some mesmerisers are impostors, pretending to superior power and knowledge which they do not possess, talking, flourishing, and perhaps pouring forth religious sentences, and cruelly making pecuniary victims of their patients. But let society remember that quackery pervades all professions and all occupations: that there are many professional mesmerisers who forego a portion, or even the whole, of their just remuneration from those who are poorly off: and that many persons mesmerise silently, modestly, and assiduously without any recompense. The practice of mesmerism tends greatly to heighten sympathy with our suffering fellow-creatures and is a source of true happiness to conscientious mesmerisers. We have presented satisfactory proofs that mesmeric phenomena, though they may be produced artificially, may all occur without artificial means, and are due to a peculiar condition, of which we are as ignorant as of the true nature of gravitation, electricity, heat, light, &c. We can only observe phenomena, and ascertain to what they are or are not owing. We have proved that mesmeric phenomena are independent of imagination, suggestion, fixed ideas, &c., though every mesmerist should be aware that imagination often plays a powerful part in mesmeric phenomena, and has thus proved a stumbling-block to investigators from the time of the first commission of enquiry in Paris in the last century to the present hour.

Were the Zoist continued longer it would be replete with useless repetitions of facts; it would be too large to be purchased and too extensive to be useful. It must be regarded as a complete work which has come out in fifty-two numbers, one for every week in the year, though the issue has been slower. It is a rich store, and will be a solid work of reference for years to come.

London, December 31, 1855.
