e high council, with seventy wagons drawn by horses, proceeded as pioneers to take possession of the country. They passed up the north fork of the Platte River to Fort Laramie, crossed Salt Lake City. that stream, followed its course along the banks of the Black Hills to South Pass, which they penetrated. Along the rivers, through deep canons, over the lofty Utah Mountains, they toiled on until, on the evening of July 20, they saw, from the summits of the Wasatch Mountains, the placid Salt Lake glittering in the beams of the setting sun. It was like the vision of the Hebrew law-giver on Mount Pisgah. It was a scene of wondrous interest. Stretched out before them was the Land of Promise where they hoped never to be molested by Gentiles, or the arm of Gentile government. The pilgrims entered the valley on July 21, and on the 24th the president and high council arrived. They chose the site for a city on a gentle slope, on the banks of a stream which they called Jordan, connectin

and were already in active progress of execution before any communication from me reached California. If the proposed constitution shall, when submitted to Congress, be found to be in compliance with the requisitions of the Constitution of the United States, I earnestly recommend that it may receive the sanction of Congress. The part of California not included in the proposed State of that name is believed to be uninhabited, except in a settlement of our countrymen in the vicinity of Salt Lake. A claim has been advanced by the State of Texas to a very large portion of the most populous district of the Territory commonly designated by the name of New Mexico. If the people of New Mexico had formed a plan of a State government for that Territory as ceded by the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, and had been admitted by Congress as a State, our Constitution would have afforded the means of obtaining an adjustment of the question of boundary with Texas by a judicial decision.

ants we had on board the Alabama, and whether we fed them on live Yankees, as they had heard. The boarding-officer, who was a bit of a wag, told them that we had made the experiment, but that the Yankee skippers were so lean and tough, that the giants refused to eat them. Whereupon there was a general grunt, and as near an approach to a smile as a Mohammedan ever makes. They then said that they had heard that we were in favor of a plurality of wives. They had heard of Brigham Young and Salt Lake. The officer said, Yes, we had a few; three or four dozen a piece. They now insisted upon his smoking with them, and plied him with other questions, to which they received equally satisfactory answers; and when he got up to depart, they crowded around him at the gangway, and salaamed him over the side, more reverentially than ever. I have no doubt that when these passengers arrived at Mecca, and discussed learnedly the American war, half the pilgrims at that revered shrine became good C

Chapter 19: Red Mormonism. From Winnemucca, an Indian camp in Nevada, to Brigham, a prosperous Mormon town in Salt Lake Valley, we race and wriggle through a mountain district, not more striking in physical aspect than in human interest. Rolling on the level of Ben Nevis, with a score of snowy peaks in front and flank, we climb through woods of stunted pine, ascending by the Pallisades to Pequop, at the height of Mont d'or, from which we slide by way of Humboldt Wells and the Americannders, Delegate George Q. Cannon, and Professor Orson Pratt. In the camp of Red Cloud, a chief of the Teton Sioux, you hear the same talk of divine help, and of standing face to face with God, as you hear in the Lion House and Tabernacle at Salt Lake. I will consult the Great Spirit, says Red Cloud, when the Indian Commissioners press a point. In speaking to the Whites, Red Cloud never drops this tone of priest and seer. Whatever the Great Spirit tells me to do, that I will do. Red C

n-twentieths of the territory, says Daniel Wells, mayor of the city, still belonging to the Saints. Yet every one must see that a Gentile feeling, hostile to the Mormon theory of domestic life, begins to reign in store and street, in mart and bank. A Gentile banker may not seem so great a personage as a Mormon bishop, yet this bishop's daughters cannot be prevented from turning their eyes in female envy on that banker's wife. The Gentile lady is more richly dight than any other woman at Salt Lake. The Mormon ladies wish to dress like her. Riches are entering into strife with grace, and fashion is pushing sanctity to the wall. In other days plurality was a rage. You heard of nothing else. Ladies affected to be smitten by the spell, and boasted of bringing in new Hagars to their lords. To have a plural household was a sign of perfect faith and walking in the highest light. To be a member of the Church, and yet refrain from sealing wife on wife, was a discredit to the priesth
