y of Utah was, for the most part, withdrawn from the Territory, and the Saints were left to their own devices. As soon as the pressure of the troops was removed, the voice of the Prophet resumed its earlier tone of truculent defiance, blackguardism, and blasphemy. The following from an officer at Camp Floyd, August 11, 1860, gives the changed aspect of affairs: The same game has commenced on the part of the Mormons that was played before the army came here as regards the Gentiles. Brigham preached a very inflammatory sermon last Sunday. He cursed the Government, the President, and the Gentiles. He said he would wipe them all-every one-out, d-n them! that he would let the Government know that he was still here; that he would send every Gentile to hell with wooden legs, and that they had better be supplying themselves now while lumber was cheap. With the further history of events in Utah this memoir has no concern, and hence it may be dismissed with the remark that the

He had a severe skirmish, losing sixty men killed and wounded; but he held his ground until the next morning, when he received reenforcements. The enemy, however, withdrew from his immediate front before daylight. The enemy obtained possession of Reed's Bridge on the afternoon of the eighteenth. At daylight on the morning of the nineteenth, Colonel McCook sent Lieutenant-Colonel Brigham with the Sixty-ninth Ohio Infantry, to surprise the enemy, and gain possession of it. He gallantly charged across the bridge, driving the enemy from it, and, in accordance with instructions received from General Steedman, destroyed it by fire. As the enemy were gathering in force around Colonel McCook, I sent him an order at six o'clock on the morning of the nine-teenth instant, to withdraw from that position. This order was executed by seven o'clock A. M. I now posted Colonel

t collection, and must be mildly persuaded, for his own good, through the potent logic of an indictment. ‘T is a curious world. Here at the East, hundreds of wretches are clamoring to the courts to rid them of one spouse, and there at the West, Brigham, and other much-married saints, are struggling for assorted lots, numbering from a dozen to a gross, of the same article. Thus it is that human nature is most inconsistently asinine. Thus it is that the barbarous Mormon Bible, which is notoriorities of Slavery are mixed with others which are so much more revolting, and which appeal so much more directly to human sympathy, that we forget the lesser wrong (if there can in such case be any comparison) in our indignation at the greater. Brigham's polygamous institution is bad enough at the best; but it is free from that taint of remorseless and calculating selfishness which makes Southern Slavery an almost unmitigated evil. Nobody can calculate how many children call Brigham Young b

wenty-second, Colonel Kidder, at the right centre; and the Sixth, Colonel Ames, on the left. Colonel Holman's small brigade formed the second line. In this order the troops struggled through the swampy and tangled and almost impassable woods, the rebels shelling them furiously all the distance. As our line emerged irregularly from the woods, the rebels threw canister with terrible effect. The Fourth received their whole concentrated fire. Captain King was instantly killed, and Lieutenant Brigham mortally wounded. The whole regiment suffered severely. Both wings were forced to return and remain in cover for a short time, until the lines could be reformed; but, at the word, the right wing charged with exultant shouts up the slope and through the murderous fire. The rebels fled in confusion to the woods in their rear, leaving one gun behind, which was instantly turned upon them by some of the negroes of Colonel Kidder's regiment, under the direction of Private John Norton, of

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 striht of Mont d'or, from which we slide by way of Humboldt Wells and the American Desert direct to Brigham in the land of Zion. Ten years ago, this line of country, four hundred miles by road, belonged me to keep it. Brigham Young might use these words. The Lord has given Salt Lake Valley to Brigham and the Saints, just as the Great Spirit has given Nebraska to Red Cloud and the Sioux. The Lord has told Brigham to keep that valley, and Brigham will hold it so long as the Lord gives him strength to keep the Gentiles out. Whatever I do, says Red Cloud, in the tone so often heard at Salt Brigham will hold it so long as the Lord gives him strength to keep the Gentiles out. Whatever I do, says Red Cloud, in the tone so often heard at Salt Lake City, my people will do the same. Whether asking or refusing, Red Cloud is but carrying out the wishes of his people and the will of God. Brigham Young has done something to appease the feud
