ATPEABANCE OF TIIK PABTT KK HOtTS ?PfKITUALI8M Y8. MA TERIALISM ? THE PICKNIv*mtAN FESTIVITIES ? BPKBCHE8 OF THE MEDIUMS, JMC. The organ ol? the persuing who have faith in what la called Modern Spiritualism, contained', lu>t week, the fol lowing notice:? The Spiritualists of N*w York and vlclnttypropoae hating a reunion on Tuesday, the22rt July, at Ht. K?n?n'? Well, war Flu thing, L. I. The iwuumlttrr have selected the shore place a* one commanding a beautiful view of the bay. ana pun Kenning -ill the rout cnivni-ea that make a retreat tor a large liarty desirable. Ticket* t5 eenta, children half price-, may be had ?n board the Inland Olty, which leaves Fultm market slip at 6!-J. Hand 10 A. M , and at 1 and 4 I* M. Return1 at 4, hall past 5, and 7 o'clock. Ten o'clock found a spiritual r* i>orter for ttw Bwuid, with two and sixpence worth of material sandwiches, at Fulton market, slip, from whence he waa, ic com pany with about a hundred and tifly other drtmnty individuals, steamed to Hunter's Point. Ho Uben took the cars on the gigantic achievement o I xing bland science and enterprise, the Flushing Railway, and In due time arrived at the terminus of tke road, about six mile*, and was landed in Flushing, dis tinguished for mosquitoes, marshes, gardens, creeks acd cottages. We had a rather good looking party. There were, to be sure, some queer looking chaps with lunatic asylum sug gesting eyes and beards, which sadly needed the shears of Delilah? some very thin maiden ladies with pover ty struck ringlets and red tipped noses ? some ladies who write for the papers and shave their toreheads under the mistaken idea that it makes them look intellectual ? some clumsy, ugly boys who bullied their mothers and bored everybody clic; bst to make up for that there were many l>rctty girls in bewitching summer dresses, .and eyes sparkling with delight when the bass v iol man camc on board. There was only one really disreputable person ( In the party, and that was a baby, who had evidently been brought against his consent? who violently express ed his disapprobation cf the whole a flair, and who was distinguished for a virulent cutaneous eruption aud ex ceedingly vigorous lungs. When we arrived at Flushing the laziest of us finished the pilgrimage by stage. So It may bo seen that it la about as much trouble to go to Flushing as to Niagara. The burghers of Flushing gtzed at us from under their vines and tig trees, with mingled admiration and fear. '?There's the spirit rappers," said one specimen of Young Flushing to a comrade; straightway both lied incontinently and buried their races in the aprons oi their respective mamas. We arc at the grove at last. It isn't a bad affair, but Is not at all brilliant. It will be remembered as the locale of the summer feasts of the Garrisonian abolitionists. The well gives us ^plenty of the coolest and most delicious water ? the view of Flushing bay is pretty ? and if that is not enough, why you may go to sleep under a tree. What more can a reasonable man desire 7 The spiritualists are somewhat material, after all, and with one accord they proceed to pitch into tho contents of tlio baskets, which have attracted so-much attention from the Juveniles during the voyago. Those delicate creatures, who as Othello says, we can call ours, ' but not their appetites," cat in a Ktyle which would disgust any Hyronic admirer. Alter euting there is dancing, in that plow, lugubrious and melancholy stylog which always distinguishes the Anglo-Saxon race when its seeks to amuse itsell. The uuinber ot dancing men is limited, ami somo youi g women distinguished for their saltatory achievements in Bowerv bail rooms, are i>ositlvely driven to the necessity of waltzing with each other, and that is terribly slow. ."*> far, we do just as other picnickers do. We hav# eaten? w e have ctanccil ? we have originated two or three email flirtations, of no consequence to nobody. Where are the spirits ? Tho burghers ot Flushing who have come expecting to see people stand on their heads and root up forest trees, are waiting for Kome phytic*! demonstrations. Can't they be accommodated with an earthquake ? a whirlpool, or some other tits or convulsions ot nature 1 Not a convulsion? not a fit. Ex nihil, nihil Jii ! There Is a little coterie under a clump of trees In the centre of the grove, to which a brother ? brief in stature, weak in voice, but strong in the Ifcith ? Is relating his ex perience. He has been a terrible fellow. He has eaten of meat; he has been carnJverons; be has indulged in the cop which cheers, hot not inebriates; he has jerked bis Mocha and be has "chawed" tobacco. The spirit! told blm, h? says, to purify himself by abstinence from flesh, tea, coffee ami tobacco. The spirits told him that that which detlled the body defiled the soul, and serrated from the spiritual woriil, dragging him down to what was material, therefore low, db-gustful. lustful and hurtful. It was hard work lor him to leave off these habits, but ho bad done it In every case except tobacco. He noped he mixht liave help to triumph over this, whether Caven dish or line cut, howsoever the tempter might assail him. He thought thtt spiritualists should not say to people who arc without light, " stand off, I am holier than thou," but rather should endeavor to assist men to reform and purify themselves. Here another brother, who Is what Is called a speaking medium, Interrupted the tonacco rorsuming sinner. We ask, " What's the diilleulty with that old joker?" He shuts his e>es and deuchos his hands, mi. I other wise behaves In an extraordinary manner. A lady medium tells ns that there is a spirit in him wlikh wants to apeak, and his botiiy wrttbings are caused by the clashing of the spiritual against the material "That's nwful ' wo should think, au<i the lady coincide*, saying when she has one of them spirits into her she don't get over It for a week, sometimes, which must be distressing. The medium speaks witn his eyes shut, and his bat on his head. Hh address is pretty, but not new or vigorous. He lacufcates Chri-ii in rbsrity, ami says, like tho iastspeakcr. that it is the duty of the enlightened to help up the outside barbarians. He argues that men's crimes arc eaused by the circumstances or condition- that surround them, or by some maltbrma. lion nt birth, which induces an abnormal condition ol tho l"Mty, unii thereby inflm lu es the pa<sloli* an.

Tin' mMM who coldn't "top clii'wmg tobacco got the floor Tar (impersonal explanation in regard to that point. He didn't know what made him chew. His father didn't do it? none of his family! did Jt, except bis mother who took a little snuff for a catarrh. But he had an organte disease of the heart, caused by extreme tension of the mnsrics. He desired that some one would reel ot his muscles and ascertain thereby bow hard tbey were; but i.'ii'ody did It. He said be chewed tobacco becaose it cauMtd a relaxation of the muscles and thereby cured his heart disease. Whenever be stopped chewing the disease came back. He then announced that the brother who spoke with his eyes shut, wit lied to say a few words more, as the spirit that occupied turn had an engagement (probably to dine with Belmont) In the Netherlands at six o'clock. Ho that the spirit spoke again, but said nothing of any consequence He might as well have gone to the Netherlands before. That spirit, whoever he was. must have been an immense bore when be was in the flesh. This coterie soon dispersed, and a circle was formed of two or three hundred, which was addressed by several of the brethren, and one lady, evidently of a strong ner vous temperament. The lady put the very pertinent question, ? What did we oomc here for?" and prooeeded to answer it In a manner which made the matter some what more mystenoui than it was previously. The speeches were 'all rhapsodical, and with no particular point, Uiat we could see. After the speaking, the gentleman wbo chewed tobacco for an organic disease of the heart, requested permission to sing. He eiitertained the circle with something be tween a bowl at an Irish wake and the whine ol a con 'umptlve poodle, whtn some one suggested, loudly end abruptly, " there's enough ot that " at whteh everybody laughed, and the minUTel switched oil at once. Ills enemy a|?>logixed by saying that it was th? spirit that possessed him that maile him so impolite. He never would think of interrupting his trlend's song. Tim circle then tried a chorus, which, though rather doleful, was better than the solo cflort. Then the hat was passed around for ma tenal aid. Upon this the circle broke up, suddenly. The next exhibition was one of painful interest. For some time attempts bad been made to get a little Irish girl, six or seven years old, into an abnormal condition. At Isst tbey were successful, or appeared so. The clttld appeared to he in a mesmem or clairroyant trance, and repeated a U ng story, winch was hardly coherent, but very singular.

We thsight it wogld have been remarkable If she or any of the other speakers hsd used good hngllsb. Several men amused themselves by endeavoring to get women Into similar trances. We couldn't sec wby, if the men desired to make lore to the women, tbey did not do It openly and on the square.

I The club, which la composed cf aome or our nnwt respecte<l aad worthy citizens, iB rapidly besoming a popular mat.tution, aad will, wo have no doubt, even tually become the riva>ot the beat In Kngland. It la bu a Tew years aiaee it im organized, and it has already done much towards fbatering the taste of our pecple for yachting. The greatest Interest was manifested in the regatta of yesterday, and a large number of our cUtzena were spectators of it. Tbs elub chartered the steamboat Union for the use of their friends, about live hundred of whom gladly responded lo the Invitations which they liad received. A large number of the company consisted of ladlea, and among these, the beauty of Mew York was well represented. At tea o'clock, tire time appointed for the yachts to start, there was not' a breath of air, aud the smooth, tmrtHlled surface of the water looked like- a vast mir ror. The judges, Messrs. Stephen Yan Nostrand, Ctiaa. Boyce and Stephen Boyoe, all experienced yacht men, con sulted together and finally concluded to postpone the race for another hjur. Meantime the company amused themselves aa best they ooukl, some discussing the merits of the rival yachts, and others, the ladies especially, in pronouncing mild and moderate phillipics against the I>erversity of the weather. But it was all of 110 use, the water maintained an unrullled surface, the wind would not came when wanted, the sails bung heavily against the masts, and the little streamers swayed lazily to and fro on the peaks, reluslng to show their signals. Klevcn o'clock arrived, but no wind, and tbo company unanimously agreed that It should "be bio wed." They were deter mined, however, that the yachts should start at the appointed time, wind or no wind, and at the hour stated ail (bat could got into line and thoae that coukl not of themselves were towed Into position. "Now, gentlemen," said Mr. Yan Moatraad, aenlor Judge, "you will be ready to go aa soou as the gun Is tired." The crews of tea yacht# retpooded unanimously and after the most approved sailor fashion. A row mi nutes alter, the judge waved the signal, the gun was flrcd, and the greatest activity waa visible oo board the rival boats. But it was all of no use; the yachts would not sail; they only floated; aud It soon became evident that there woald be, ao tar aa the awarding of the jirtzoo was concerned, no regatta that day. Ten trim and well mo delled sailers entered tor the prize. They rejoice in the following names:? Kartt'f Big. Owner*. storm Bird Sloop H. I\ Mciiovn. Challenge " T (iraliain. Olivia " \Ym.

About an hour and a half was consumed In floating a mile, which might have been accomplished in I ma time, but the very currenta seemed to have conapired with the wind against it. At one time they were all lying together, and it appeared aa if they had become tangled with each other. After a tremendoua effort tbey succeeded in get ting alongside Randall's Island, where a whole regiment of little fellow were drawn up in military array, with drums beating, colors flying and shouting out their joy ous greetings till the dull, stupid echoes or the East river shores had lo re?i>ond in spite of themselves. Aa the ileet floated by the island a slight breeae sprung up, and aa the olouda gathered thick and fast, everything looked fkvorable for tbo race. But the breeaa died away, aad the yachts, as they oould do no bet ter, want to work at Hoating again, reaalved to ?lake the moat of It Two hours have paasod since they started, and aMboogh thr nhnrii are gathering rapidly, there la atlll no wind, fte oompany <m Hoard the ateamboat are tired of looking at the floating race, so her wheels are put In motion, and in a few minute* more she la alougaide of Rlker's 'stand, where It la de cided that she shall await the yachta. The five hundred gueata walk aahore and s|*nd the time rambling alx>ut the iatand, aome forming themaelvoa Into little pic nlc groupa under the shade trees. They spent about half aa hour in this way when the long wished for wind arrived; hot like tha assistance of doubtful friend*, it arrived too late. The whole fleet are now In motion, the masts bend and creak under tlie pres sure of |the swelling sails, the pfnnauts reveal there loug concealed signals, the sluggish water is glancing aud tparkling In the sun, aad a long wake of bubb.lng and whirling eddies marks the track of each little yacht aa she sweet* onward fn the race. And now the buoy which is a little more than half way between llarlemand Throgg's Neck, is passed, and they arc making lor the flag boat, which lies on a line with it, about a quarter of a mile oil. The Red House Belle Is first close |>ressod by the Orapeshot, the Olivia and the StormbirJ. the other tlx being so tar behind that thi^r have withdrawn from the contest, and are now spectators of the race. Just, however, as they near the flag boat, the peak halliards of the Red llou.e Belle have gi van way, the sail flaps againat the mast, ami it ts reared the the must also with draw. But her crew do not intend to give up so easy. One of them runs up the mast, and In a few inluutes has repaired the damage. Tliev struggle hard lo regain their lost position, and they deserve to succeed; but the delay Is iXtal, and iho Belle takes her place second or third ill the line, c in tending hard for it all the way home Hall |inst ft aad they have all arrl red at the starting |>olnl, having been Kotncthlng less than sit hours and a half out. Curing that time they have Honied and sailed twenty one miles, hut tbey have consumed more time In doing so than the law allows : and so, because tbo wind would not come when wanted, no prize* ware distributed, and the whole rare will have to be gone over again. According to the rulea of tlxvrluh it inuat take place the day after, which la to day. The yachts will start between 11 and 12 this morn ing, when wa trust tha weather will be mora aoapctoaa.
