Invoked by the recent sharp criticisms of the Boston Courier, were commenced in a room in the Albion build ing. on Tremont street, yesterday afternoon, and are to be continued for several days, or until some satisfactory conclusions may be reached.. We have a sketch of the session 'this morning?from what we will term a " clairvoyant " source?it being entirely independent of all persons present ?but which we know to be perfertly reliable. The spiritualiats formed a 41 circle " compris ing thirteen members, including the celebrated Fox girls, Mr. Allen Putnam of Roxhury, Mr. Robert Carter, late of the Atlas and Traveller, a representative of Judge Edmonds of New York, Mr. 0. A. Redman, and others. The "skeptics" present were Profs. Pierce. Agaasiz, Wyman, Horsford and Gould, and Hon. George Lunt. who represented the Courier, hav ing (according to our correspondent) a check in his pocket for &5t4), payable to the spirits in case tbey fairly triumph in the contest. It will be seen that the " circle " have the nu merical advantage over their opponents by more than two to one After some *' tappings'" ha?l been heard, one of the Profess4^ asaed how they were produced, and the answer was that the spi rits could not account for them. Prof. Pierce then called In oue of his students, who, without pretending to be a spiritualist, also firoduced the "rappings" quite as successfully as he other side. 1 Some attempts at moving a table withont visi ble agency were made, but failed?as did also some attempts at gettlflg written communications from spirits?the excuse being that the latter were overawed by tbeopposing elements present. From all the doings this forenoon our "clair voyant1" was not specially Impressed that any re markable feats were performed, and has very nearly already come to the conclusion that ??the spirits" are ha.dlyupto the standard of Blitx and Alexander for marvels. He is free to say, however, that the Cambridge Committee act with the utmost fairness towards the performers, allowing them every facility ask ed in any form for the sake of arriving at the tiuth. Barton Transcript, June 26. Dosoiso a Pistol Ball.?In the Mayor's court, an the -23d, George Booth, quite an old inan, was charged with shooting a pistol at James Thayer, on Mondav evening.

Bostom Pott. fTT" Estates in the environs of Boston have been sotd at a very low figure, and in a great many cases at a ruinous loss to the owners. The causes of this decline are manifest, the principal cause being the dullness and almost complete stagnation of business, then the rise of fares on the railroads, the severity of our last winters, and the great buildiug operations at the south part of the city, which have supplied the new demands fur houses. A LI of these causes operate to lessen the demand for suburban property, and forced sales at the present lime are at low rates .? Boston Traveller.
