Chooe to bo Hanged.
A murderer recently convicted in Salt Lak
Utah, was niven, under the provisions of th
law, the rtrivileee of choosine the method of
death, and said: " I have been talking witli
ine marsnai auoui it, nnu.naii not lully de
cided, but now I will say that I prefer to b
hanged." The iudee thereupon sentenced
mm to lie nanged on rriuay, June I. lh
Salt Lake Herald says the reason of his se
lecting hanging in preference to shooting was
understood to dc tnat ne uui not want to I)
"mangled by men who are his enemies.

It IS pretty difficult to imagine any villainy
the prosecuting witness Carey has not sworn
he committed, or had a hand in, and when
the English Government is through hanging
others upon his testimony, let us trust that it
will not fail to hang him upon the same evi
dence. It is said of the revolution in Hayti that
"the insurgents are desperate and will fight to
the last man." They have only thus far
fought their rations to the last man, and
wholly discomfitted them, there remaining
but a mass of bleached bones. Solomon is

Cincinnati has a deaf and dumb lawyer
named Parkinson, who has a good practice
and is an able lawyer. Most of his advantage
is said to lie in his inability to hear what the

case, and his great suavity and amiability,
usually obtains judgment.

The West Indies are made storehouses of
American bonded whisky, the purpose of the
owners being to escape the operation of a

provement of the whisky by the sea voyage
far more than compensates for the cost of
freight to and fro, and foreign storage.

The Mormons In tlio South.
From tho Now Orleans Tlnios-Dcmoorat.
The Mormons see in the South an inviting
field for missionary work and proselyting, and
bop to recruit the forces of their church from
this section. The following, from a recently
published addressed of one of the dignataries
of the church in Salt Lake City, shows what
their hopes are :
"While this European force is so success
ful, our missionaries, durinp two vnr.
"l"; icpuii great progress Deyond ex
pectation in the former slave states ; not
among the blacks, but among the poor whites.
Among that numerous class, with adequate
"'"'i 1'iumisc ncany a clean sweep,

and spiritual guardianship."
we regard tins .Mormon boast as a serious
threat. It is true that the Saints have nni I,.
gun to draw off very many emigrants from the
Sou'h as yet only some 500 or 600 a year
but they have met with sufficient success to
encourage them to new endeavors. They
propose to increase their missionary forces in
the South this fall, and to make new en
deavors and exertions to win converts.
This evil, which is a small one now, threat
ens to become a serious matter in the near
future, for these Mormon missionaries are
growing bolder and bolder. We called at
tention, a short time ago, to the fict that a
party of them had invaded Panola county,
Mississippi, and were proselyting secretly
and quietly in that county. We may expect
to soon see them in Louisiana.
Is it not the duty of the Southern States to
protect the ignorant classes and it is con
fessedly among these that "the Stints" are
working against these false and dangerous
doctrines which, propagated as they are, se
cretly and without contradiclion, and without
a word about polygamy being said, are win
ning hundreds of converts ? Can not the
South show these people that they are selling
themselves to a so-called church, whose main
pillars are murder and polygamy t Unless
this is done the South is likely to face a very
troublesome Mormon question in the early
future a much worse exodus than that of the
negro laborers to Kansas, an emirration of
the poorer classes of the whites to Utah.
