This was a product of the time and of the Ascendency in Ireland. With occasional nods to the current Animal Magnetism, the journal created a garland of the curious and antiquarian: old stories of Dr. Pordage and Benvenuto Cellini, more current apparitions (the Laird of Cool, and Duncan Campbell),and Count Gabalis's conversion. In an article on “The Rosicrucian Brotherhood" in the August issue, the author opines that the the Rosicrucians had disappeared only to arise in a new guise: “politics took the place of metaphysics, and produced the secret societies of the revolutionists."
