Stephen S. Jones, tne editor oi tüe Beliqio-Philosophical Journal, who wa s f lately killed in' Chicago, lias been heard from in tlie spirit land. Jones' name . still stands at the head of the editorial , column of the paper as editor aöd , prietor. His son-in-law,John C. Bnndy, announees, over his own name as actmg . editor and bttsiness manager, that the courSe of the paper and its tone will be unchanged, and ihat Mr. Jones, bemg i'reed from the trommels of ílie flesh,will be able to do more for the paper íhfhe has done heretofore.
