lt Lake City, studying the system introduced among men of European stock by Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, I wrote these words: What have ,these saints achieved? In the midst of a free people,ng the Mormons living at Salt Lake city, are a growth of the soil, older than the advent of Brigham Young, older than the revela tion of Joseph Smith. Apart from the devotional spirit, the sense known in London and Berlin, Paris and New York, have been adopted by the Saints, not only by Brigham Young and Daniel Wells, illiterate presidents of the Church, but by their learned bishops, compeerll about me. I have but a small spot of land left. The Great Spirit tells me to keep it. Brigham Young might use these words. The Lord has given Salt Lake Valley to Brigham and the Saints, just 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 feuds between Utes and Shoshones; but, as some persons all

Big Elk and Pied Riche saw in Brigham Young, what Red Cloud and Black Hawk still see — a White brother, whose big chief and medicine man, Joseph Smith, was shot ed-skins are of sacred race, no less than for preaching the Red doctrines of common property and plurality of wives. Brigham Young, on the other side, regards the Red-skins, like his leader Joseph Smith, as a peculiar people, chosen though chastiserew in number and the facts became a law. To legalise this system of plurality and incest strains the utmost power of Brigham Young. Are plural families increasing in your Church? I ask Apostle Taylor, as we wander in and out among the Temple shing to the original seer, these critics found good reason to conclude that plurality was one of the additions made by Brigham Young to the gospel taught by Joseph Smith.

Brigham Young. At Green River, in the territory of Utah, we find the details of a recent drama, every scene in which would be a parody on the Mormon pope, if Brigham Young were not himself a parody on these Indian seers. In March last year an Indian prophet came into a camp of wandering Utes near Tierra Amarilla, in New Mexicod than to dethrone a Mormon seer. Sitting Bull has separated from Red Cloud, carrying with him a thousand lodges of his nation; David Smith has separated from Brigham Young, carrying with him more than a thousand families of his people; yet Red Cloud remains the Sioux chief and Brigham remains the Mormon seer. Seceders cannot the kingdom was of God. Fray Tomas governed in the name of his Great Spirit-his Holy Trinity, his Three in One. Such are the methods, such the pretensions, of Brigham Young. The Mormon prophet only goes beyond a teacher like Fray Tomas, where Fray Tomas fell behind such chiefs as Red Cloud. A Christian friar is chastened in his

A private person might be called a steward of the Lord, but his original and abiding steward was the Church. Brigham Young, living nearer to the sacred race than Smith, and having Lamanite examples always in his sight, pushes this pretension of his Master home; insisting that a Sain expulsion from Ohio and Missouri, and was the cause of Joseph Smith's assassination in Carthage Jail. A suspicion that this doctrine of Retaliation animates Brigham Young, involves him in some degree of responsibility for the Mountain Meadow Massacre, for the murders of Brassfield and Robinson, and for many other misdeeds of Roc

it was the case of Utah. It was not only in open and defiant rebellion, but it was composed mainly of foreigners, who never had cherished or professed any feelings but those of ill will and hatred towards this country; and by its brutalizing system of polygamy, and by the most shocking moral abominations, including a legalized system of murder, had provoked the vengeance of God and man. Yet a long period elapsed before any measures were adopted to coerce this refractory and reprobate territory, and when an army at last was sent, Peace Commissioners were sent with it who tied up its hands and prevented it from using the weapons with which it was provided. The country has stood by and seen Brigham Young come successfully out of his conflict with the federal government, and made no complaints of the manner in which its authority has been set at naught, so opposed is the public sentiment of the United States to compulsory measures and to shedding blood in vindication of its authority.

ople to assort their authority by the sword, even though the rebels be the polygamous, incestuous and beastly inhabitants of this modern Sodom and Gomorrah. It is true, that to raise an army sufficient for the subjugation even of Utah, cost the Government an enormous amount; but, even when it was raised and had marched to its destination, it was accompanied by Peace Commissioners, who seem to have been very easily satisfied, and not a drop of Mormon blood has yet been shed. At this very moment they are using the most arrogant language towards the General Government, and at the recent Conference Brigham Young, Kimball and Hyde delivered speeches, in which they expressed the hostile feelings of the Mormons towards the American people. And yet, the New York Times and other kindred Republican sheets, urge the Government to draw the sword upon a Southern Christian community, whenever it undertakes to throw off its authority, and treat it with less consideration and humanity than Utah!
