. Mormonism, in its political aspect, is far
from being Bubdued. Notwithstanding the
army sent to Utah, and the vast and costly mil
itary preparations made by Government to sus
tain its authority, those fanatical rebels appear
to be a3 pestiferous as ever. All the late ac
counts concur that in spite of a full array of
Federal officers, backed by nearly three thou
sand U. S. troops, there is neither law, nof
peace, nor security in Utah Territory. Brig
ham Young still maintains his pernicious influ
ence oyer the MormOn population, and there is
not a shadow of doubt but he counsels and di
rects robbery and assassination against those
who opoosethe wickedness and hypocrisy of his
church 1 The authority of the Fecial officer's
h openly sot at defiance, the army, insulteu,
iho regular constituted authorities threatened
with violence. And. all these unlawful and re
bellious proceedings, coupled with many , dark
and terrible, crimes, have' been carried on for
the past two or three years. '
. .This farce of temporizing with outlaws and
rebels, has been enacted quite long enough, be
fore a-disgusted country. All such temporizing,
conciliating measures, as Government has been
carrying out towards, the Mormons are entirely
thrown away, as" experience shows, and greatly
to the public cost If there is any intention
to. quell this disgraceful scene in our history,
jvhy is it not done ? The army has been sent,
civil officers have been sent, but peace is not
maintained, nor the deeds of violence which

ask if it is not so why does the administration

wretched, the conduct of civil affairs worse.
While Indian hostilities keep the frontiers of
Texas in. arms, while powerful bands of sava
ges aro liable at any moment to descend upon
the settlements of New Mexico, Arizona and
California, the best part of our little army is
doing "police duty" in Morrifondom, and gov
ernment is spending millions which go to
support that nest of vipers. If civil authority!
is powerless in Utah, let martial law be put in '
force for a time. We have an abiding faith in
that sort of government for such cases. 0, for j
