FOR 1865:

A Journal of Romance, Literature and General Intelligence;

also an Exponent of the Spiritual Philosophy of the Nineteenth Century.

William White & Co., Publishers and Proprietors.

William White, Isaac B. Rich, Charles H. Crowell.


Assisted by a large corps of the ablest writers.


THE BANNER OF LIGHT has now entered upon its ninth year and seventeenth volume; and the Publishers earnestly solicit the co-operation of Spiritualists and friends of Reform, to enable them to keep it afloat in a healthy condition, so that they can not only continue the distinguishing features which have heretofore characterized it but to even make greater improvements, as the advancing condition of the time may require. As in the past, the BANNER will still continue to be the Exponent of the Spiritual Philosophy of the Nineteenth Century, and a fearless advocate of all Reforms which the good of humanity demands.

We know that the BANNER has done a vast amount of good, and can yet do much more, if our thoughtful friends so decide, and will individually lend us a helping hand. Therefore, as it is paramount to secure as many Subscribers as possible, we ask our friends to place this Prospectus in the hands of non-subscribers, and solicit them to subscribe at once, which they can do by remitting the price of subscription.

The BANNER is published weekly, at 158 Washington street, Boston, Mass., and contains, in a handsome quarto form, of large size, FORTY COLUMNS OF ATTRACTIVE READING, classified as follows:

LITERARY DEPARTMENT.—Original Novelettes of reformatory tendencies, and occasionally translations from the French and German.

MESSAGE DEPARTMENT.—A page of Spirit-Messages from the departed to their friends in earth-life, given through the instrumentality of Mrs. J. H. Conant, from the educated and uneducated, the developed and undeveloped, tending to prove direct spirit-intercourse between the mundane and super-mundane worlds.

EDITORIAL DEPARTMENT.—Subjects of General Interest, the Spiritual Philosophy, Current Events, Entertaining Miscellany, Notices of New Publications, etc.

CHILDREN’S DEPARTMENT.—Original Stories, Poetry, etc., suitable for children’s reading, by Mrs. Love M. Willis, one of the most gifted writers in America.

ORIGINAL ESSAYS.—Upon Spiritual Philosophical, and Scientific Subjects.

REPORTS OF SPIRITUAL LECTURES.—By Trance and Normal Speakers.

All which features render the BANNER OF LIGHT a popular Family Paper, and at the same time the harbinger of a Glorious Scientific Religion.
