The English Language.
A fact not generally known, except,
perhaps, to a class of instructors who
have given the subject thought, is that a
remarkable proficiency in the use of
English can be attained without a
knowledge of even the elementary principles
of grammar as taught in books.
Some of the purest and best writers
have never taken the trouble to learn so
much as the parts of speech. One well-known
writer, whose purity of style and
elegance of. expression would grace the
pages of any magazine in the country,
never gave a day's time to the study of
Of course these are exceptional instances
in which a native taste for composition
and a habit of reading standard
authors, have had much influence in
molding style. Some people will never
learn to write well with the best advantages,
while others seem to fall into a
good form of expression naturally.
The English language, for newspaper
purposes, is more easily mastered by a
habit of daily observation and inspection
than by a study of text-books. The new
dictionary will bo welcome, but the
American newspaper will never bo bound
by it, though it will contain 7,000 pages.
SV. Louis Jiejiublican.
The New York Sun is agitating the
guillotine question. It believes it better
chop a man's head off than to pull his
Uck out of joint, but as long as the
victim doesn't complain what's the use
of a change ?

rublic Schools of Salt Lake City.
The public schools are only nominally
so. rIha school houses are oi'tener
spoken of as -ward meeting houses, and
are used indifferently for Mormon worship
and for schools. They were
originally built by donations as meeting
houses. The title to the land on which
they aro situated is hi trustees, but
whether these are sub-trustees for the
Trustee in trust of the Church, or
whether they act for the school district,
is one of those things that "no fellow
can liud out." It U openly charged
here that these buildings aro all owned
by the Church, aud iio chargo is not
disputed. But one thing is sure; if they
are not owned by the several school
districts, then there are no school houses
tit all so owned. They tiro repaired,
added to, and renewed out of the public
taxation. The teachers aro all r quired
to bo Mormons; tuition fen.s are charged
all the pupils, additional to the public
tax; the grades of study are extremely
low, and the teachers iucompetent; the
text books aro carefully selected to see
that nothing inimical to Mormonisin is
in them; and the Mormon doctrinal
books are read and taught in these
schools. They are, therefore, simply
Mormon sectarian schools, supported
largely at the public charge. Under
these circumstances it is impossible for
Americans to have their children educated
in these schools, nor do they pretend to.
Yet none the less is their property
heavily taxed to maintain and support
them, and tho tax is much more a
church tax than a school tax. In addition
to this, the Americans have to pay
for the schooling of their children in
private schools, established and flourishing
here under the control of the
Episcopalians, Eoman Catholics, Presbyterians,
Methodists. The local taxing power is
exclusively in the hands of the Mormons.
Tho consequence is that Americans are
assessed much higher than Mormons on
similar property, and the latter receive
large concessions besides, in the shape
of remissions of taxes, which the county
court is empowered to make, to the extent
of $10 lor each person. But taxes
on Americans are not remitted. Neither
are they able to obtain any showing of
what is done with their money. In addition
large blocks of the finest property
in the city escape taxation under the pretense
that they are owned by the Mormon
Church, but not used for church
purposes; and the collector's books
show, besides, long columns of taxes
paid by James Jack, Territorial Treasurer,
probably out of the public moneys,
on assessments against the favored ones
of the faith. It is substantial grievances
like these of which the. Americans of
Utah complain, and to which they point
whenever the Mormons put forward
their usual claim of good and fair administration
of Territorial affairs. We don't
hear of them putting forth any claims of
this kind at home, reserving them for
the outside world, where the knowledge
of tho facts is limited. But -we submit
that this is a showing which entitles the
people of Utah to relief at the hands of
their fellow citizens. They have long
asked it, but have either got nothing or
something ineffectual. Many other
things might be named in tho way of
abuses in Utah, and many nullifications
of Congressional law cited; but all can
not be given in one newspaper, or in
limited space. I quit here, with the
exx)lanation that I have used the word
American as the reverse of Mormon. It
is a distinction taught the Indians by
tho Mormons in past years, and many
an "American " has been killed simply
because ho could not claim to be a Mormon.
There is no reason why this distinction
of their own should now bo
dropped when the conditions are changed.
