Utah tvnd Women at Salt Lake.
Mr. HEPWOBTH DIXON, editor of tho London
AOienceum, who has but recently paid a visit to tho
United States, has published a book called "New
America." His picttires of Western life are most
admirably drawn. A large portion of the book is
devoted to Utah and the Mormons. Tho social
effect of polygamy receives a practical illustration
among the Mormons, which Mr. DIXON did not fail
to notice. His remarks on this ! subject are very
interesting and instructive :
WOMAN AT SALT LAKE.
|f And wLat, as regards the woman herself, is
the visible issue of this strange experi?
ment in social ami family life ?
During our fifteen days' residence among the
Saints, we have had as many opportunities afforded
ns for forming a judgment on this question as has
ever been given to Gentile .travelers. We havo
seen the President and some of the apostles daily;
we have been received into many Mormon houses,
and introduced to nearly all tho leading Saints ;
we have dined at their tables ; we have chatted
with their wives ; we have romped and played with
their children. The feelings which wo have gained
aa to the effect of Mormon life on the character
and position of woman, aro the growth of caro, of
study, and experience ; and our friends at Salt
Lake, we hope, while they will differ from om*
views will not refuse to credit ns with candor and
II you listen to the elders only, yon would fancy
that the idea of a plurality of wives excites in the
female breast the wildest fanaticism. They tell
you that ? Moonan preacher, dwelling on the ex
. amples of Sarai and of Rachel, finds his most wil?
ling listeners on the female benches. They say
?that a ladies' club was formed at Nauvoo to foster
polygamy, and to make it tho fashion; that moth?
ers preach it to their daughters; that poetesses
praise it. They ask you to believe that tho first
wife, being head of the harem, takes upon hersch'
to seek out and court the prettiest girls; only too
proud and happy when she can bring a new Hagar,
a new Billah to her husband's arms.
This male version of the facts is certainly sup?
ported by such female writers as Belinda Pratt.
In my opinion, Jiormonism is not a religion for
woman. I will not say that it degrades her, for
the term degradation is open to abuse; but it cer?
tainly lowers her, according to onr-.Gentile ideas,
is the social scale. In fact, woman,1 is not in socie?
ty here at all. The long blank walls, the embowered
cottages, the empty windows, doorways and ve?
randas, all suggest to an English eye something
of the jealousy, the seclusion, the subordination
of a Moslem harem, rather than the gayety and
freedom of a Christian home. Mon rarely see
. each other at home, still more rarely in the com?
pany of their wives. Seclusion seems to be a fashion
wherever polygamy is the iaw. Now, by itself, and
apart from ali doctrines and moralities, the habit
of secluding women from society must tend to dim
their sight and dull their hearing; for if conversa
' tion quickens men, it still more 'quickens women ;
and we can loimdiy say, after experience in many
households at Salt Lake, that these Mormon ladies
have lost the practice and the power of taking
part even in such fight talk as animates' a dinner
' table and a drawing-room. Wo have met with
only one exception to thia rulo, that of a lady who
had been upon the stage. In some houses, tho
wives of our hosts, with babies in their arms, ran
about the rooms, fetching in champagne, drawing
corks, carrying cake and fruit, fighting matches,
iceing water, while tho r>f a were lolling in chairs,
putting their feet out of window, smoking cigars,
and tossing o f-beakers of wine. .:*:'.
(N. B.---Abatm?nce from wine and tobacco is re?
commended by Young and taught in the Mormon
.schools ; but we found cigars in many houses, and
wine in all except in tho hotels t) The ladies, as a
rule, are plainly, not to say poorly, dressed ; with
? no bright colors, no gay noun COB and furbelows.
They are very quiet ana subdued in manner, with
what appeared to ns au unnatural calm ; as if all
dash, ali sportiveness, all. fife; had been preached
ont of them. They seldom smiled, except with a
wau and wearied look ; and though they are all of
English race, we have never, heard them laugh
with the bright merriment of our English girls.
They know very little, and feel an interest in
very few things. I assume that they are all great
at nursing, andT know that many ot them ai e
clever at drying and preserving fruit. But they
are habitu*Hy shy and reserved, as though
they were afraid lest their bold opinion ona sun?
set, on" a watercourse or a mountain-range,
should be considered by cheir lords as a dangerous
- intrusion on the sanctities of domestic life. While
you are : in the ' house, they are brought into
the public room ' as children are with us ;
they come in for a moment, conrtsy and shake
hander ; then drop ont again, as though they lei t
themselves in company rather out of place. I
haye never seen this sort of shyness ' among
grown women, except in a Syrian tent.
Anything like the ease and bearing of an English
lady, is not to be found in Salt Lake, even among
the households of the rich. Here, no woman
reigns. ' Here, no woman hints by her manner
that Bho is mistress of her own house. She docs
not alwavs sit at table; and when she occupies a
place beside her lord, it is not at the head, bat on
one of the 'lower seats. In fact, her Ino does not
. seem to be in the parlor and the dining-room, so
much as in the nursery, the kitchen, the laundry,
and the that-shed.
The grace, the play, the freedom of a young
English lady are quite unknown to her Mormon
sister. Only when the subject of a plurality of
wives has been under consideration between host
and guest, have I ever seen a Mormon lady's face
grow bright, and then it was to look a sentiment,
to hint an opinion, the reverse of those maintained
;by Behnda Pratt. r
I am convinced that the practice of marrying
plurality of wives is not popular with the femaii
Saints. Besides what I have seen and heard from
Mormon wives, themselves living in polygamous
families, I have talked, alone and freely, with eight
or nine different, girls, all of whom have lived at
Salt Lake for two or three years. They are un?
doubted Mormons, who have made many sacrifices
for their religion; but after seeing the family life
of their fellow-Sam ts, they have one and all become
firmly hostile to polygamy. Two or three of theso
. girls are pretty, and might have been married in
a month. They have been courted very much, and
. one of thom has received no less than soven offers.
Some of ber lovers are old and rich, some young
and pooi', "sith their fortunes still to seek. The
old fellows have already got their houses full ot'
wives, and she will not fall into tho train as cither
a fifth or a fifteenth ^spouse; the young men bein J
true Saints, willmot promise to confino themselves
forever to their earliest vows, and so she refuses
to wed any of them. All these girls prefer to re?
main single-to five a life of labor and depend?
ence-as servants, chambermaids, milliners, char?
women-to a fife of comparative ease and leisure
in the harem of a Mormon Bishop.
It is a common belief, gathered in a great mea?
sure from the famous letter on plurality, by Belin?
da Pratt, that the Mormon Sarai is willing to sock
Out, and. eager to bestow, any number of Hagars
on her lord. More than one Saint has told me that
this is true, as a rule, though he admits there
?may be exceptions insofar as tho Morman Sarai
falls short of her high calling. My experience lies
among uhe exceptions solely. Some wives may bo
good enough to undertake this office. I have
never found one who would own it, even in tho
pr?sence of her husband, and when the occasion
i might i.ave be9n held to warrw8JWlittle feminine
fibbing;. .Every lady to whom I have put this ques?
tion, fiuuhed into denial, though with that caged
and birken courage which seem* to characterize
every Marmon wife. ,$ Court a now wife for him!"
said una lady; " no woman could do that; and no
woman would submit to be courted by a woman."
The process of taking either a second or a six?
teenth wife is the same in all cases. "I will tell
you," said a Mormon elder, "how we do these
things in our order. For example, I havo two
wives living, and one wife dead. I au? trunking of
taking another, as I can well afford the expense,
and a man is not much respected in the church
who has leas than three wives. Well, I fix my
mind on a young lady, and consider within myself
whether it is the will of God that I should seek
her. 2f I feel, in my own heart, that it would be
right to try, I speak to my bishop, who advises
and approves, as fie shall soe fit; on which I go .
to the President, who will consider whether I am a- |
goodman and a worthy husband, capable of ruling
my lbtle household, keeping peace among my
wives, bringing np my children in the foar
of God; and if I am found worthy, in his sight,
of the blessing, I shall obtain permission to go on
with the chase. Then I lay the whole matter of mv
desire', my permission and my choico, before my
first wife, as head ol my house, and taite her
counsel as to the young lady's habits, character,
and accomplishments. Perhaps I may speak with
roy second wife; perhaps noi; sincoit is not so
much her business aa it is that of mv first wife;
beside which, my first wife is older in vears, has
seen more of life, and is much more of ? friend to
me than the second. An objection on the first
wife a part would have great weight with me; I
should not care much for what tho second either
said or thought. Supposing all to go well, I should
next nave a talk with the young lady's father; and
if he consented to my Buitv I should then ad?
dress the young lady herself."
"But before yon take all these pains to get her "
I asked, "would you not havo tried to bo sure of
youl' ground with the lady herself? Would vou
not have courted her and won her good will before
taken all these persons into your trust ?"
"No," answered the elder ; 'Tshould think tin.'
wrong. In our society we aro strict. I should
have seen the girl, in the theatre, in the taber?
nacle, in the social hall ; I should have talked with
her, danced with her, walked about with her, and
in these ways ascertained her merits and guessed
her mchnahons ; but I should not have made love
to ber, in your sonso of tho word, got up au under?
standing with her, and entered into private and
personal engagement of tho affections. These
affairs are not of earth, but of heaven, and with
us they must follow the order of God's kingdom
This elder's two wives livo in separate houses,
und seldom 6eo each other. While wc have beul
at Salt Lake, a child of tho second wife has fallen
sick; there haB been much trouble in the house;
and we have heard the ttrst wife, at whose cottago
we were dining, say she would go and pay tho
sesond wife a visit. Tr>o elder would not hear of
suchathmg; and he was certainlv right, as Hie
s.ckness was supposed to bo dvpthena, and she
had a ur cod of little folks playing about her knees.
Still tho manner of her proposal told na that she
was not in tho habit of daily intercourse with her
lt is an opon question in Utah whether it is bet?
tor for a plur:.l household tobo gathered under one
roof or not. Young sets the oxample of cnisy, so
far at krjst as his actual wives and children are
concerned. A few old ladies who have been sealed
to him for heaven, whether in hiB own name or in
that of Joseph, dwoll in cottages apart ; but tho
dozen women, who sharo his couch, who are the
mothers of his children, Uve in one block close to
another, dine at one table, and join in the family
prayers. Taylor, the apostle, keeps his famihes in
separate cottages and orchards : two of his wives
only live in his principal house ; the rest have ten?
ements of their own. Every man is free to arrange
his household as he likes ; so long as he avoids
contention, and promotes the public peace.
''How will you arrange your visits when you have
won and scaled your new wifo ?" I asked my friend?
ly and communicative elder; "shah you adopt the
uricntal custom of equal justice and attention to
the ladies laid down by Moses and by Moham?
"By heaven, sir," he answered, with a flush of
scorn, "no man shah teU me what to do except-"
giving tho initials of his name. .
"You mean YOU will do as you like ?"
"That's just it."
And such, I believe, is the universal habit of
thought in this city and this church. Man is king,
and woman has no rights. She has, in fact, no
recognized place in creation, other than that of a
servant and companion of her lord. Man is
master, woman is slave. I cannot wonder that
girls who remember their English homes should
shrink from marriage in this strange community,
oven though they have accepted the doctrine of
Young, that plurality is the law of heaven and oi
God. "I bet?eve it's right," said to me a rosy
English damsel, who has been three years in Utah,
"and I think it is good for those who like it; but it
is not good forme, and I w?l not have it."
"But it' Young should command you?'
"He won't!' said the girl with the toss of her
golden curls; "and if he were to do so, I would
not. A girl can please herself whether she mar?
ries or not; andi, for one, w?l never go into a
house where there is another wife."
"Do the wives dislike it?"
"Some don't, most do. They take it for their
roligion; I can't say any woman likes it. Some
women live very comfortably together; not many;
most havo their ti tl's and quarrels, though their
husbands may never know of them. No woman
likes to see a new wife come into the house."
A Saint would tell you that such a damsel as my
ro8v friend is only half a Mormon yet; he would
probably ask you to reject such evidence as trum?
pery aud temporary; and pload that you can have
no fair means of judging such an institution as
polygamy, until you are able to study its effects in
tho fourth and fifth generation.
Meanwhile, the judgment which we have formed
about it from what we have seen and heard may
bo expressed in a few words. It finds a new place
for woman, which is not the place she occupies in
tho society of England and the United States. It
transfers her from the drawing-room to the kitch?
en, and when it finds her in the nmsery it locks
her in it. We may call such a change a degrada?
tion ; tho Mormons call it a reformation. Wo do
not say that any of these Mormon ladies have been
worse in their moralities and their spiritualities by
tho change ; probably they have not ; but in
everything that concerns their grace, order, rank,
and representation in society, they are unquestion
ablv lowered, according to our standards. Male
Saints declare that iii this city women have become
more domestic, wifely, motherly, than they are
I'among the Gentiles; and that what they have lost
in show, in brilliancy, in accomplishment, they
have gained in virtue and in service. To jpe, tho
vory best women appear to be little more than do-'
mestic drudgos, never rising into the rank of real
friends and companions of taeir lords. Taylor's
daughters waited on us at table; two pretty, ele?
gant, English-looking girls. We. should have
preferred standing behind their chairs and help?
ing thom to dainties of fowl and cake; but the
Mormon, like the Moslem, keeps a heavy hand
on his female folks. Women at Salt Lake are made
to keep their place. A girl must address her father
as " Sir," and she would hardly presume to sit
I down in his presence until she had received his or
"Women," said Young to mo, "w?l be more
easily saved than men. They have not the sense
to go far wrong. Men have more knowledge and
more power ; therefore they can go more quickly
and more^certainly to hell."
The Mormon creed appears to be that woman is
not worth damnation.
In the Mormon heaven, men, on account of their
sins, may stop short in the stage of angels ; but
women, whatever their offenses, are all to become
the wives of gods.

AUGUSTA, March 18--FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL
Tho state of the weather during the past week checked
outdoor business to a very considerable extent, and our
city retail trade, amongst Our dry goods and taney
dealers was almost suspended, but the advances in the
Liverpool and Northern markets in cotton caused quite
an active trade amongst our cotton dealers, and on
adva^o ol fully two cents was paid in the latter part of
the w_r<?, ind the advance was only cheeked from the
difficult;-' of making negotiations. Carron cy waa much
wanted,* and the lack ot additional banking capital was
severely idt Wo trust some arrangement LT additional
hanking capital will be made before the next season.
GOLD AND SILVER.-Gold closed at 137, and silver at
132. Tho demand for gold could not be supplied last

NEW ORLEANS, March 14-COTTON-The market
opened this morning under the encouraging influence of
the New York and Liverpool advices. The offerings were
ample to meet ordinary requirements, and most factors
were disposed to sell, but their views being materially in
advance of the limits of buyers, the latter wore generally
loth to go on, deeming it more expedient to postpone the
execution of their orders and await the effect of twiner
developments. Under these circumstances the sales
wero less liberal than the activity in thi early part ol the

Among tho chief points of excellence of the Ohlcker?
