Spiritualism in tub Patent Office ?a ciiriou* application for a patent has been made by a New Yorker for a process to determine the lalsry or truth of spiritualism. In tonsil's of a room closed perfectly, so that all air and li^ht is effectually excluded, except air lor breathing, which is admitted from a stopcock. opened from time to time. Light Is only admitted by being passed through a dark blue, ""lolel, or black liquid, so that the room is perfectly dark to the unaccustomed eye, but be. cones slightly illuminated when .emaiuing lone in it, the Inventor asserting tnat toe particles of common light are much too heavy and solid compared with the innch finer constituents of the bodies of spirits; therefore common light passes through them, and is not reflected from their surface; to see spirits at all, the light must be first filtered. The room is to be painted with spin's of turpentine, or any other spirits mixed with substance akin to carbon. The inventor asserts that with these precautions it may become possible for the inmates ot the room to see spirits, forms or ghosts. He claims the use ol filtered light in a closed room for the purposes of divination. The patent was refused, on the ground that when a company of persons were for some time inclosed in such a room, without sufficient air to breathe, they will not only see ghosts, but also give up their own. Dull Times in N*w York ?The New York correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger writes: The dry goods dealers, who wore cheerful faces about the first of the month, say February is advancing without bringing with It anv increase }f business, while the advicee from the interior continue discouraging.

The reconstruction mil was diacnssed bv Messrs. Harding. Sbeliabarger, Dawes, Hotcbkise, Griswoid, Raymond, Garfield, and others, nntil halt-past three o'clock, when Mi. Stevens rose to second the previous question. He said there were but etgh* days for legislation this side of a veto, aul therefore he deemed it his duty to move the prevlous question. Mr Banks asked Mr. Stevens for permission to make a remark, while Mr. Eldrnige wv> appealing to him from the Democratic sid of the | House. At this moment the members were manifesting Intense interest, and were gathering around the neighborhood of Messrs. Ranks aad Stevens and the excitement seem*.I t.i be shared by the spectators in the crowded galleries. Mr. Stevens yielded to Mr llanks, who said Mr. Speaker, I would not oppose a vote by the House on this question at this time if I did not think there wa* ai I opportunity to do moie toward the settlemeut ot the difficulties in which the country i? involved than we are doing at ibis time. I believe that a day or two devoted to the subiect of reconstruction of the Government wih bung ns to a solution in which we shall agree in which the two houses shall agree, iu which the people of the country will sustain us, in which the President will give us his support. If we shall agree on a measure satisfac: jr v to ourselves, and iu which we shall be sustaiued by the people, and if the resident shall resist it tlipp we i-ball be justified m dropping tlie subject of reconstruction, and considering the condition of the Government in a different sense. [Sensation] Mr. Stevens, (referring to Mr. Hanks, said, sneenngly,) Mr. Shaker, I have no: the advantage which the distinguished gentleman from Massachusetts has of ibe secret negotiations from which he expects such perfect hari mony between the President and the Congress of the I nited States within a few days, if l had that ad vantage I do not know wtiat effect J it might have upon me. Not hav.ng it, I cannot of course act upon it. The gentleman from 1 w isconsin [Mr. Eidridge] says that the decree i has gone foi th that this bill is to pass. I do not know that, sir. 1 have seen enough of this I House, and, as 1 have heretofore noticed, it is ' demoralized so far flaughterj that there is not enough of the spirit that seut ns here to carry ' , out the will of the people and perfect the legislation which the people expect. I have, th*re- ! fore, no sanguine hope that this bill is to oe ' torcad upon the country or upon gentlemen ' j There are woid> and letters iu the bill (alluding to Mr. Bingium's critnism ot it) fro a the > first through thf whole aipUabet, which some 1 I friends object to aud carp at, and mait-; an ex- J | cute for their attacking it. I am quite sure j that much of the opposition on both sides of this Hjute comes frori a modification of vie ws coinci litg with the Presidents vie as, and tnat hs arguments ha yecon viuc#d many geetlemen that bis theory is the true one [Gieat excitement among members, most of who n were standing in order the better to hear and witness what was going on.] I am unaoie to j learn to what extent that has pravailed, but after the previous question shall have be-u voted upon 1 shall be better satisfied a* to w hether it is worth while to proceed further in any attaaipt by Congress to resist the power of the Pre ident, or whether it is our duty I like humble Christians, to submit to the power that hae conquered us, and allow the South- I ern people to remain in their present condition Mr. Banks ?In the remarks which 1 made, Mr. Speaker, I had no allusion to any uego. I nations with the President. The gentleman , from Pennsylvania [Mr. Stevens] knows mora of his opinions than 1 do, and will yield to his policy much sooner than I shall, (expression* of encouragement to Mr. Banks, and ef satis. I faction with the last remark.) 1 spoke in good I iailh to the House, askiug for time to debate this question. My reason for it is based on tbe simple idea, which evary member can under- | stand, that the measures which we propose 1 and one of which is now before tbe House, depend for their efficacy on being enacted by two-thirds of the two Hoases, against tbe Ex- I ecntive branch of the Government. Mv belief I is that we cannot carry on the Government of the United States in that way?that we mast have laws In which the Executive will ao-op- I erate in order to make those laws effective If I after we, the representatives of the people,' have agreed as to what laws are necessary to I aecure the peace of the county and to maintain the existence of tbe Government, aud after the I people have sustained ns in those laws, the I President refuses co-operation, it is our duty to the country to drop this question of reconstruction, and to proceed to the consideration of the position and purposes of the President I himself. 1 repeat my expression of belief that I we c-in, before this*e&9ion closes, come to tucti I conclusion as will compel the President of the | t nited States to sustain us in our action, or I as will justify us in adopting another course if I he refuses. I have no negotiations with the I President, nor do I know his opinion; and in I the vote which I shall give on this question, I neither the gentleman from Pennsylvania, nor any other man. has a right to asMime that I I accept the President's policy in the slightest I degree. I hope for a change of his position, and I think that la not impossible, and \? worth I trying for. The House proceeded to vote by tellers on seconding tbe previous question?the Demo. I crats voting solidly against it, wui a sufficient I support from the Republican ranks to mike I the negative vote 86, against the afflrmauve I vote of 61. The result seemed to give m^re I than the usual satisfaction to the wmmnr I side. * I Mr. Banks intimating that be did not desire and was not prepared to address the House I this evening, the House at 4.30 o'clock ad- I journed. , WA case Involving the right to money I fouud was decided In the Supreme Court, Bos- I ton, last week.
