The Daily Dispatch: January 23, 1861., [Electronic resource], Sudden death of a clergyman in Church. (search)
The Rev. J. E. H. Seymour, a native of Charleston, S. C., and a promising young minister of the Baptist Church, died on Friday last, of consumption. Advices from Utah state that Brigham Young has taken a contract to build four hundred miles of telegraph through that country. Piccolomini, the charming little opera singer, is now the Marchesa della Fargua, and has her "palace." The steamer William Jenkins, running between Savannah and Baltimore, was burned at the former port on Saturday night. The amount of coal annually taken from mines in Ohio is estimated by the Commisioner of Statistics to exceed 2,000,000 tons. A writer in the Atlantic Monthly, describing the Americans, says: "They have skins of ice, and veins filled with burning lava." The cost of the Crimean war is estimated to have been $250,000,000. Rev. Chas. Lowell, of Boston, died on the 20th inst. Joe Jefferson, the comedian, is playing in Washington.
. There being no crisis in the country, nothing going wrong and nobody hurt, the old gentleman seems to be devoting his attention altogether to social reforms, and to the philosophy of the marriage relation, which, together with the Tariff, will form his principal branch of study after he arrives in Washington. It is desirable that he should have the most competent instructors in all those departments, and, for that purpose, Gen. Cameron will probably put him through on the Tariff, and Brigham Young on the marriage question. Among the various "attractions" with which he seems to be more familiar than any other branch of Executive science, he has lately given at one of the Western cities of New York an illustration of combined capillary and passional attraction, which produced a fine effect on the audience, and increased the unequalled reputation for dignity and decorum which he had already achieved. However, there is no satisfying everybody. The N. Y. Express says the idea of the

Bigamy. -- Wm. T. Cummings was brought before the Mayor on Saturday for committing bigamy in this city, in marrying Josephine Donella, having previously intermarried in Washington, D. C., with Sarah E. Holsworth. He was remanded for further trial.-- Laws, as well as people, "are various," because in Utah such an act would have recommended the prisoner to Brigham Young as an enterprising young man. Here enterprise of the sort is regarded in the light of an infraction of law, and the victim of ardor and susceptibility is at one fell swoop deprived of his privileges and made to suffer those pains and penalties which usually afflict the penitentially inclined.
From Utam, Territory. --Advices from Salt Lake city to the 26th ult. state that the fall of Fort Sumter and the secession of Virginia had created intense interest among the "Saints. " The news was read in the tabernacle by Brigham Young, and the disciples were asked to believe that this was merely the prediction of Joe Smith about the breaking up of the American Union. Captain Gardner, of the army, left Fort Bridger about the middle of April, without orders and without handing in his resignation to Colonel Cooke, commanding the department of Utah. This step was supposed to be owing to the captain's secession proclivities. Lieut. Good, another United States officer, at Fort Crittenden, handed in his resignation, and five others were expected to do likewise. Gov. Cumming was to have left Utah on the 15th inst. for the banks of the Savannah, anticipating the arrival of his successor and the other new Territorial officers.
Polygamy. --Brigham Young, who has nearly thirty wives, is said to have only thirty children living. A French traveler makes this statement, not with the idea of reflecting upon Brigham, but to show the moral penalty of polygamy.
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 Elec
ed points. Intelligence from Havana to the 1st of March has been received. The statement that there has been no armed resistance to the allied invaders of Mexico is confirmed.--There is great scarcity of provisions at Vera Cruz. Washington, March 5.--Advices from the lower Potomac state that the Confederates are concentrating a large force opposite Hooker's Division, and it is supposed that a large number of Southern troops have recently arrived. Salt Lake City, March 4.--Brigham Young has been re-elected Governor of Utah. Springfield, Mo., March 1.--On Wednesday night 300 Confederates surprised Capt. Montgomery at Kittsville, and several Federals were killed and seventy horses were taken. It is believed that Generals Van-Dorn, Price, McCulloch and Pike will overrun the country. Louisville, March 4.--Two bridges at Nashville and the Decatur Railroad have been destroyed. The largest boats continue to navigate the rivers. Chicago, March 4.--Columbus was
The New Mormon Complication.[from the New York post, April 30th.] Brigham Young has just been insugurated as Governor of the new State of De et, and Mr. Ashley's bill for the punishment of polygamy has passed the House of Representatives. Here is a conflict at our doors at once. The Mormous have organized their State Government with polygamy as the "corner stone" of their system, just as slavery in the corner stone of the Confederates, intending to demand immediate admission into the Union. While Congress declares their fundamental system a crime which morals and justice alike forbid. That the Mormans — are in earnest in their new State morvement is abundantly proved by the recent public speeches of their leaders — Brigham Young, Hebar C. Kimball, and other "apostolic" Dignituries in Utah, who mould the deluded followers of the Mormon beresy at their will, boidly avow their purpose to make a direct issue with the Government.--In effect, they say that they have suffered
The Mormons. --The Northern papers are p cil cting that their Government will soon have some trouble with the Mormons. Brigham Young was recently inaugurated Governor of Utah, and made a characteristic speech, from which we extract a few sentences. It will be seen that Brigham expects to have a large family. The old chap talks in this way: We are not going to be satisfied with a mere preemption right on the soil in this territory. Should the Government grant to every head of a family six hundred and forty acres of land, and to each w e and child their portion, as was done in Oregon Territory, that would give to me and my sons and daughters quite a scope of country. But shall we be fled with that? No; I am going to have a larger preemption than the Territory of Utah. In a few years this territory will not contain my own posterity. in twenty years from now this spacious hall will not hold my children and in twenty years more they will more than fill this territory.
Brigham Young on Homespun --"The prophet" has been lecturing his followers about the necessity of depending upon themselves for articles of domestic use, instead of upon "strangers" and "enemies," in which categories the people of the United States are placed. He maintains that Salt Lake can produce everything that is requisite in a household. There is as good material for making hats as in any part of the world. "We have an excellent button machine," and the "tons of bones lying bleaching on the prairie" are just the thing to make buttons of. "Some of the sisters wear home-made shawls, and to me they appear far more appropriate than the gandy trap plage of foreign make." The term "appropriate" he must evidently apply to the dresses worn, not the wearers. Then to make spindles, pins, needles, and cloth, "the salutes" have plenty of iron, and necessity will impart skill to use it. "I have not," says the speaker "sent to the States this season for any factory cloth, nor for
