MR. HOME, THE SPIRIT MEDIUM, IN ROME. Perhaps the most exciting incident of the week is that Mr. Home, of spiritualism notoriety (writes the Times correspondent from Rome), has been ordered to leave Rome in three days and that I may not err in my statement of a fact which has occasioned a great sensation, I give you a report of the proceedings in his own words :â Jan. 2.âReceived a letter requesting my presence before the police on the 3rd inst, between the hours of ten and one. Jan. g.-Weiit, and was shown to the room of the ad- vocate Pasqualoni. I was accompanied by my friend M. Gouthier, Consul of Greece in Rome. The questions were as follows:â The names of my father and mother? Have you published a book ?â Your profession ?-An art sttident.-Yes. Your residence ?âS5, Via del Tritone. When did you arrive ?-Six weeks ago. How many times have you been in Rome 1âTwice. How long did you stay each time ?âTwo months the first and three weeks the last. How long do you intend to remain this time ?âTill April. Have you a fixed residence in France ?âNo. How many books have you written?--One. How many copies have you sold 1âAs I am not my own publisher, it would be Impossible to gay. After you became a Catholic did you exercise your power as a medium ?âNeither before nor after did I exercise my power as a medium, inasmuch as it is not a power dependent on my will, I could not use it. How do you make these things ?âI think the reply I have just given is sufficient for this. Do you consider your power a gift of nature ?âNo; I consider it as a gift of God. What constitutes a trance?âA study of physiology will explain this better than I can. Do you see the spirits asleep and awake ?-Both. Why do the spirits come to you ?-As a consolation, and to convince those who do not believe in the after existence of the souL What religion do they teach ?âThat depends. What do you do to make them come?âI was about to reply that I did nothing, when on the table where he was writing there came clear and distinct raps. He then said "But the table also moves?"âJust as ke was saying it the table did move. What is the age of your child?âFour and a half. Where is he ?-At Malvem. With whom ?âDr. Gully. Is Dr. Gully a Catholic ?-No. When did you last see your child ?âTwo months ago. When do you expect to see him again ?âIn April. He then said, without assigning any reason, that I must leave Rome in three days. Do you consent ?" No, most decidedly not, inasmuch as I have done nothing to infringe the laws of this or any other country. I will consult with the English consul and be guided by him." On Monday morning the British consul saw Mon- signor Matteucci, the Governor of Rome, and com- plained that any British subject should be interfered with in consequence of his opinions. He stated that Mr. Home had conducted himself during his residence in Rome in a strictly legal and gentlemanly manner, and demanded that the obnoxious order should be rescinded. Monsignor spoke of dangerous powers of fascination, of the prohibition by the Government of all prac- tices of the black art, and finally assented to Mr. Home's remaining, on condition of his entering into an engagement, through Mr. Severn, that he would desist from all communications with the spiritual world during his stay in Rome. An agreement to that effect was drawn up and signed by Mr. Home, who will hence- forwards abstain from all communication with the upper or lower world, as the case may be, during his residence in Rome.
