this opportunity to express the feelings
of a grateful heart for the many favors
I have received at your hands for sev
eral years past. You have been pleased
to elect me every four years to a Dis
trict office by overwhelming majorities,
and I have, as you are well aware, just
entered upon another term of office,
which, if I should live to its expiration,
will inake twenty years that I have
held office, a term tufliciently long to
satisfy any reasonable man, I at least
so feel it, and announce to you fellow
citizens that I am no longer a candidate
for the office of Ordinary of Sumter
District, amid give you this early notice
of the fact in order that you may have
full time during the next four years to
select the proper individual from
among you to fill the office. I need
not tell you the office is an important
one, and the man who fills it and per
fornis its duties, should understand
well the law. Fellow citizens as a

Tuas MoaoN OUTURRAR AT SALT Tr
LARE.-We find the following com- ;
munication in the National Intelligen- a
cer of the 6th inst: I read the other ,
day a remark of yours that you sup. e
posed the late news by the way of Or
egon, that the Mormons had declared
themselves absolved from the inde- t
pendent of the United States civil au
thorities from Salt Lake. In this sup
position you are in error. I left Cali- t,
fornia on the 16th of December last, f
and we knew of the nature of the civil
authorities with the Mormons at least
eight weeks before that. The trip be- e
tween Salt Lake and Sacramento is t
often made in less than two weeks.
There is a monthly mail between
Portland, Oregon, and Salt Lake; also
between Sacramento and Los Angeles,
and Salt Lake. The communication
between the Mormon settlement in 6
Los Angeles and Salt Lake is kept open
the whole year round. t
Although the Delegate f.om the p
Territory of Utah disbelieves the state- g
ment brought by the last steamer from (
California, yet I am satisfied that he is i
in error. In fact, it does not surprise i
the people of Oregon and California. t
We had all been looking for news of
open defiance on the part of the Mor
mons to the authority of the United I
States. The great body of these peo
ple are English chartists, and the rest
are made up of fanatics and enthusiasts
of our town country and other parts of
the world. I have no hesitation in
saying that the statement brought by
the last mail wvill be confirmed, and
that the government will have ke
soine very decidq l
mFans to subdue
do immense damage t~ ''life and piroper

number of warlike tibes of indians,
their numbers will be reatly augment
