The (bllowing is an extract of a.leltor to. i gentleman of this village, respecting the 'araous Clairvoyant wc rnentioned last .vcek. ' I would say tbat the 35 lectures (a vhicli }'ou refer, comprise but a small nrt of the book that is now being prolucod - certainly not óne third. They onstitute merely the"key"to ihe secndand most important part. The "revlalion " nnd llio whole is lo he followed y a third part; the u applicatipn" and ali a form one book. The Sö leclures to which you refered have been completed, but nol publishd. N.r will any portion ofthe work ie pubÜshed until the whole is complete, or. the reason that all tlie paris will form i perfect whole, vvliich should not bo dis-, onnnctëd.

His Uea?, phüosóphy, seience, and all ihe phenomena connected u-ith their pii.1sèntalióft, are profoundly astonishingand nteresting ; and you may well judg--, my friend, that " something of immense imporiance to the human race will gro-.y out of these Jectures." I cannot now judge of the probablo cost of the work when published, except from the probnbiüty that it will ba comprised in from 600 to 700 octavo pages. Rut it will be sold as low as possible, whilst it maV nfibrd a reasonable compcnsaiion for The labor in getting it
