AntiReligious-Poiltico Mountebank!
A certain Mountebank, going over
litis lection of Ohio, who calls Himself
Alexander Henry, as wt are informed.
has been lecturing in McArthur against
Popery, as he adieiliscs in U'u bill?,
but which is a lie in fact, as lie abas

listen to one ot his lectures without
discovering in liim, personified, the
diiAefniakir. lus secret thrust at '
the Democratic pirtv aud the Admin-
istratiofi of Mr. Pikhcr.
We give one of his argument? against
the Catholic Church, which is some
tuv hiuiii; umiriij, which issorne -
thine like the following words: "An

time, in the life of the Parrot, a Hawk
came hovering over Poll's head; when
Poll, keeping a close eye on his Hawk-
ship, sings out the Hail Mary, where
upon, tne Parrot's (being the servant
.of the most high) praters were heard,
Ind the Hawk fell dead at Poll's feet."
The saving grace of the Hail Mary
had killed the Hawk, and saved the
Peot. ' .Whereupon, this travelling
Mounleb&Sk exclaims, "what think

"NEVER MIND THE EXPENSE."

Very recently, at a war meeting in
England, the Duke of Richmond made
a speech, in which he said that the war
against Kussia ought henceforth to be
carried on vigorously, and on a grand
scale. "Never mind the expense,' he
saiu; "inai is now a secondary matter."
And this, if the war is to be carried on.
was wisely said, Verydifferent.though,
was every ooay s language and thoughts
at the commencement of the contest,
ana lorsome monlliVoIterwards. This
war was to be carried on by taxation,
and that not very onerous.except to the
receivers of incomes; and they were
able to sland it; anJ, for the first time
within the last two hundred vears. the
English nation was to be treated to a
pny.ns-you-go-along war, without sad-
dling posterity with any part of the ex-
penses. oo said, ana so believed, ev -
erybody, with the exception of Mr.
urigni, ana tne uakers.and Manches
ter statesmen. So said the people, the
Parliament, the Ministry, and last, not
least, that very able financier, Mr.
Gladstone, the Finance Minister; and
last, not least, the London Times,
which is a sort of fourth estate in the
reahn.indorsed this very agreeable idea,
that all expenses were to be paij as the
war proceeded.without arrears.or loans
or postponement. And there was at
ions liiinK oi a surplus ol fourteen

present day, nouody Knows, except
those who do not like to tell.
We,t hough doubting whether a great
war can be carried on now-a-days, by
any nation, without resortinir to loans.
. I i a
still believe that all (he great British
statesmen, economists, and calculators
knew, to some extent, what thev were
saying and doing, and if they had 61
last to borrow, it would not be certa h-
ly within the first year of the war. We
are not a little surprised at th very
brief existence of the system of incur

getting along without loans -says it is
a fiction, and "that it is right that, as
posterity is to De benefited by the war,
posterity should pay the expenses of it."
These are the words, and very intellig

necessary to effect the purpose for
which the war was begun, (wo or three

Exposure of the Mormons—A Letter
from one of President Young's
Wives.
CHICAGO, Jan, 16, 1855.
Editob Boston Daily Times:
Allow me to trouble you with these
few lines, which I wish you to insert
in your Daily Timet. My object ii
this: : I bare been, lor the last ten years,
a tirm believer in the doctrine of the
Latter Day Saints, or rather Mormon
ism. My parents became followeis of
the celebrated Joe smith in an early
day and emigrated. After the death of
Smith and his brother we were , driven
from thence. The scociety split.
There were two who wished to take
their leader's place, and stand at the
head of the Church, but . could not
agree. Therefore they separated. . Col.
lute and ins lollowers that is, such
as believed in him went to Texas.and
are living in peace aud, prosperity.
Col. W. i a worthy man, compared
with our great, or rather notorious,
Brigham Young, notwithstanding he
has been tor the last three years my
lawlul husband that is, accord in to
their own laws and rules. But for the
last twelve months I have seen enough
to satisfy me; for what I don't know
about Mormoniiru is not worth know
inr. They have secret plots and ob
jects that they mean to accomplish.
l ney censure tne uovemment for not
protecting them in their hellish works.
For all tliis they mean to have satisfac
tion. My object in writing tin's is to
warn my female friends to beware of
the false prophets who are dailv sent
out from, the Great Salt Lake City to
deceive the people. It is my intention
'to travel inrougu tne United States.and
visit all the principal cities, and tolec
ture on this great and important subject
to caution all young people who should
be so unfortunate as to be led into the
ungodly trap. Beware!
lu Boston I shall deliver my first lec
ture, as that i my native city. I have
one young lady in company who also
left the Mormons with me. She lias
renounced the doctrines, and will help
me in my lectures. We chall both be
present, and show Mormonisni in its
true colors, which you never have had
in your enlightened State. Had it been
represented in its true lurht. and in oh-
. .-u .i .'
ijeci ioiu, mere would not have been a
follower left sweet New England to
tojoin8ucha set of impostors, for 1
can call them nothing else, knowin
them to be such. If there should be
any elders or followers of Mormonism,
1 hope they will come to the lectures,
and dispute what we have to say if they
can. We have and shall fetcli docu
ments to prove our assertions.
We shall be there in a few weeks.
We are at present staying with friends,
and as soon as we are refreshed from
the journey we shall start for Boston.
It is near two months since we left the
Salt Lake City. You shall hear from
me again, with more particulars. But
no more at present from your humble
servants, , .
Mrs. SARAH YOUNG,

The Whigs tnd their Know Nothing

faith, are now in a quandary tt to which
creed to idopt, tt the church of the

In New Hampshire, the Universalists
appear to have borne off the palm, the

equally with the proscribed Catholics!

it fairly consumated, before the Catho
lics are banished, their bodies burned,
and theirproperty confiscated, a stauge
difference of opinion arising among the
majority, is to which ' church shall be
united with the State.
It is meet that til Whigs and Know
Nothings define their position, and make
a choice of the sectarian banner under
which they will hereafter fight.
