The position of Utah

--Brigham Young's Prophesy.--"Ion," the special Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, Nov. 29, says:

Utah has substantially declared her independence as a State, and has taken the position of strict neutrality between the South and the North in the present contest. But it appears that the delegate from that Territory will resume his seat in the Federal House of Representatives at the coming session. A statement from him as to the peculiar attitude and policy of Utah will necessarily be elicited. Meanwhile, however, I learn that Brigham Young, as autocrat of the Mormons, has more thoroughly than ever obtained the confidence of his people by the fulfillment of his remarkable and often-repeated prophecy of the dissolution of the Union. Not a single United States soldier now remains in Utah, and the travel across the plains is much diminished. There is no trouble whatever between the Mormons and the citizens of the States. The National Electric Telegraph passes through the territory, and it is a matter of boast with Brigham that it is scrupulously protected from injury.
