The beam and the mote. A vigorous attack has been made in Congress upon the vigorous Brigham Young and his disciples. Two New York delegates have initiated proceedings — the object of which is, first, to allow no man "in Utah" to hold office who will not disavow the "theory and practice" of Polygamy; and, second, to allow no compensation to any officer in that territory who will not make said disavowal. On behalf of Brigham, we move to amend these motions by extending their operation to the entire United States. The "theory and practice" aforesaid is not confined to Utah.

His first wife was living at Georgetown, D. C., when the second marriage took place. She went out there and had Robinson arrested for bigamy. An examining magistrate dismissed the complaint on the ground that Robinson thought he was doing no wrong. Robinson, however, is not yet clear of the meshes of the law.--The Grand Jury will have the matter before them at their next sitting. If the courts sustain a divorce granted in this manner, there will be nothing binding in the marriage relation, and discontented husbands and wives can get rid of each other without the least difficulty and at trifling expense. If the laws of the State in which they reside happen to be too stringent, they have only to write to Brigham Young's courts that they wish a divorce, and the divorce is forthcoming as soon as it can be transmitted.
