EditorPost : Besides the pleasure^of study ing Mormon character and their^dechri^tianizins; creed, this city presents^several other objects of interest to vis^^itors, prominent among whieh is the^\ew Tabernacle. This gigantic struc^^ture, calculated to hold about 12.000^persons, is built in the block adjoining^tj,e ^^ President's ^ mansion, immediate^It in the rear of the Old Tabernacle, and^towards the northern portion of the city.^We imagine that the Saints never^signed to boast of the beauty of this^ftructure, for there isn't anything in its^interior or exterior that approximates^toward beauty; presenting a huge, tur^^tle shaped appearance; or, resembling^tt a distance, one of Koss Winan's cigar^jhtped ocean steamers, built upon a^large scale, and uj^on approaching it^eloeelj- the numerous doors leading into^it look like cattle stalls iu a lair ground.^Conjparisor.s, whether ^odious^ or not,^are at least suggestive, and this is the^Wavour fancy was struck with it at^first sight. A huge organ, the third lar^^gest i^ t'ie ^n'te^J States, is now in^-,,urse of construction within its walls,^md will, when completed, be a master^piece of workmanship The Temple, in
cellentorchestra, completing a pen pic^^ture of the worldly spot where the Holy^Priesthood, who claim to have the keys^of heaven in their keeping, spend their^evenings. The parquette is reserved ex^^clusively for the elect.and such obsequi^^ous, sycophantic Gentiles as desire or^may be invited to a seat with them.^Brigham's wives occupy seats about the^center of the room; the children, ( and^their name is lpgion.) to the right of^them, while he sits in the box with his^favorite^Amelia, his 43d^^ The light^of the Harem ^^and who now wears^the diamond necklace indicative ot the^honor. Many of the women come alone,^buy their tickets and find their seats,^while many of the men sit with their^hats on^a Mormon custom even in^church. The actors are good, and pood
Eiecesare rendered with a fine effect.^Ir. and Misa Couldock are now here,^and are, of course, sustaining their usu^^al prestige, the latter gaining additional^laurels daily.
Sali.Lake City,Dec. 12, 1867.
Wehave received the following note^from Prof. Ward, and are gratified to^learn that the seriously implicating ru^^mors have no foundation in fact. Who,^may be the ^parties^ referred to, we^are unaware, as like an infection, the re^^ports seemed to be all around as soon^as started. \\ e are pleased to bear wit^^ness that the conduct attributed to Prof.^Ward was singularly at variance with^his established reputation as a gentle-^fDibryo, now building just east of the I man of law abiding proclivities,^new Tabernacle in the same squ^re.will , Editor Post : Oncoming into Vir-^be a magnificent structure when com- j ginia yesterday evening, I was much
surprisedand chagrined to hear in the^mouths of many of your townspeople
Thefoundation is already laid,^md workmen are busily engaged with^I hammer and chisel at the beautiful^granite ^rom which it is designed to^^mild it and which is hauled some 20^miles or more. It is in th^s edifice that^..- i.- ( hri.-: will take up his abode when^lie makes hid appearance at the end of^|time, and from, this place will rule over^11 nations and people who have accept-^|^d the true gospel. This gospel, as it is^niiw taught by the Latter Day Saints,^I will be proclaimed by angels to all spir^^its in the intermediate prison between^Ibeaven and earth, to which they believe^the immortal pari, ot all who die go to^lihide the day ot judgment, and as many^Us believe and accept that gospel will^|be saved, and all who reject it will be^mined. All who accept the new gos-^Ipel among the Oentiles, will be gaiher-^|^1 together in Zion, (Salt Lake City,)^rliicli will be the New Jerusalem ot the^Hen tile world.^It would be impossible to arrive at^ictual cost of either of these build-^ajs. as Mormons have a peculiar way^if getting their labor performed, which^,...ns the expense materially. We in^quired of one ot the workmen at the^I-uTjde altout the probable cost of it^^hen completed. ^ I can't tell,^ said^for we do not receive payment for^rar services in money ; only in flour, ba-^r^n, potatoes, cabbages, ^c, which the^lOiurrh receives as tithing.^ ^ Is that^tind of currency agreeable to you ^^ we^Inquired. ^ No. not altogether ; hut I^iivn't anything else to do at present;^^n even if I had, I coukln't leave, for^hay wouldn't pay me till next year if I^Kid.^ He informed us that all the work^^men v ere paid in this manner, and we^Dpine tin- mateiiul required is procured^rithout cost.
TheHot Springs, about which there^iiu been considerable litigation and one^entile. Dr. Robinson, killed, is another^object of attraction to the city. It is an^exceedingly valuable piece ot property,^ad well worth contending for in a le-^itimate way, which course was the on^jJ one pursued by the Doctor, although^this cost him his life. His blood rests^Brigham's door, and sometime oroth-^, he and his .Destroying Angels will be^'id to account for it. The Springs are^toated about a mile and a halt north^prom the heart of the city, a hack run-^hg regularly to and tro. The ^ City^fathers,^ are now in charge of it, and^Irwenne derived from it goes to the^^upport ot the corporation and Church,^|^ltho' no one doubts that Brigham di-^controls the funds.

reportmost prejudicial to myself and to^my character as a law-abiding citizen.^Report said that I had gone with a force^of men, armed with guns and other^weapons, to a certain mining claim, had^forcibly driven away the workmen there^engaged, and had taken possession with^my own men. This report, circulated^with great assiduity .and with seemingly^malign intent, by a party who had every^opportunity to be aware of its falseness,^is of too serious a nature for me to pass^in silence. Let me at once deny it in^tutu. The facts are these :
Myneighbor. Mr. Isaacs, had express^^ed his intention to go to work immedi^^ately on a certain part ot the Boaz lode,^which he claimed us belonging to him^by virtue of a certain tease, and which I^claimed as my ow n by purchase. Wish^^ing to gain a point by being myself first^in possession ot the property, I repaired^there at the early hour of five A. M., ac^^companied by nine of my workmen, car^^rying picks, shovels, and other necessa^^ry tools.and went to work on the ground^wh^re we have been in busy labor and^peaceful possession ever since. We^fo.ind no one whatever at the mine, and^thus did not, as stated of us, drive any^one away. Early in the forenoon, three^men from the other side did come to^work there, but they comprehended the^situation at once, and with much good^humor acknowledged, as does Mr.^Isaacs, that we were far too matinal for^their style. So much for the story.
Therewas no attack made or intend^^ed, nor indeed j^ossible, since none but^ourselves were there. Ami I wish to^state distinctly that not one man of my^little party had any gun, pistol, wword.^lauce, spear, cannon, Tlub, bomb, rocket^or other weajxm of offense or defense,^with him or. the occasion. This is a^thing which I would positively have^forbidden. I note this with some em^^phasis and feeling. Has not the mor^l^sense ot our Montana community bet-n^too often and too rudely shocked of late^by heart-sickening rencontres and mur^^ders which have followed the free dis^play ot fire-arms, anil their us*; in en^^deavoring to conquer by brute force,^rights which the iaw ever stands ready^to vindicate. God forbid that I should^add the influence of one man towards^countenancing these proeeedures. My^business as agent of the Midas Mining^Company, is mining. At present I am^working the discovery claim on the Boaz^lode. Yours truly.

Mr.II. O. Morrill, ot Baltimore, ha*^constructed a marvelous clock. His ex^^tra time for the last fourteen years has^been devoted to its perfection. The^space necessary to display its capacity^and oj^eration is nine feet by eighteen^feet, it runs eight days and performs^as follows : It wakes up a household ;^strikes the quarters by four automatons^on four bells ; sounds the alarm to awa^^ken the master of the house ; lights a^lamp and kindles the fire in the stove ;^a carriage is seen coming along a moun^^tain road, calls at a place of business,^and gets a clock lett tor repair ; the bell^is rung to awake the servant, who rises^in the presence of the audience, and^draws the curtain of her chamber to^make her toilet: the carriage is again^seen upon the road ; when near a rocky^covert a robber springs in front of tbe^horses, and a fight ensues ; a farmer by^the roadside, not seeing the robber.com-^mences to l^elabor the horses, when a^hunter in the distance comprehends the^situation, fires his rifle at the robber.who^escapes to the mountain, and the car^^riage, with it* inmates, drives on to its^destination.
Ur.Jons Brougham, in a parting^speech at the Olympic Theatre, New^York, ^reflcected, in a charming vein of^satirical humor, upon the present taste^fer sensationalism; and he was under^^stood to intimate the design ot searching^the records of local atrocity, and furnish^^ing the public with a drama sufficiently^horrible to be remunerative.
TheSalt Lake Telegraph of the 12th,^says: Wells, Fargo ^ Co.. turned out^yesterday some splendid sleighs for the^route north of this. Supt. Taylor is^going to have that route splendid this^winter. The sleighs are numbered and^named after Parsons, Gillespie and Hen^^derson, three very efficient agents on the^route. Those sleighs ought to be fast^^idiously elegant.
