Ap IK tf THE SEARCH QUESTION IN ENGLAND. W?giv? tc-d.y what will be regarded an a lull presentation of the search question in England. Wo boo J- ?? -"do?ftpftillool iustificatiou of our pusitiou 1(1 UiW 4 upon the rights ofnierchant vessels upon the high seas; and an en Jorsement, more than forty years after the close of the war of 1812, of the principle which guided the American people iu that memorable struggle "Free trade and sailors' rights" was the signal that roused us to defence ; and although we closed the war without gaining what we ought to have had?the disavowal of the pretension of visitation?we have never since failed, when an occasion ottered, to warn the British government against its exercise over our interest. We trust now, on the exhibit which we pre sent to the reader, that at an early day we shall be able to anmmnce the final settlement of a controversy which has done nobody any good, and has served only as a perpetual source of irritation and alarm. AN UNFORTUNATE I'ARTY. Any mere fugitive party?any organization in this country which relies for its support upon mere trifling expedients?is sure to be an unfortunate political miscarriage. What would be thought of a religious sect that should proclaim its foundations to rest wholly upon exposiug the errors of other denominations ? What would be thought of a preacher who could promise uo eternity to his hearers?no system of religious government?no moral standard of right end wrong; but was eloquent over what he might regard as the inconsistencies of existing organizations and pulpit logic ? What would he Maid of a cook who could detect blunders iu the work of his neighbors without being able himself to serve one savory dish ? Ho it is with our political opponents. They have nothing to otter themselves. Their power is confined to exposing errors in others. They are looking out for mistakes. They are tearing down ; they know nothing of building up. Their old ishuos having died out this year, a ruonth or more ago they opened upon us a new campaign, confident that the great work a hich had fallen upon the admiuistra tion would call 1'or a large increase in tne cirreni expenses of the government. Mr. Secretary Cobb had estimated the actual requirements of the service for the current year at about fifty millions of dollars. Considerable additional expenditures were required on account of extraordinary army service. Without stopping to inquire the extent of those expenditures, they assumed the current payments of the year to be about ninety millions of dollars; and forthwith resolved to open the next campaign against the democratic party on the distinct ground of its extravagauce. Unfortunate men! The appropriations by Congress exceeded the estimates of the able Secretary of the Treasury about three millions of dollars only. That excess neither the Secretary nor the President had any control over. It was exclusively the work of Congress. The amount, however, if it could be put into the hands of the opposition to enable them to carry on the elections, would be insufficient to effect any great results in their behalf. They made a fearful blunder. They did not succeed in voting away near as much money as they intended. There was a feature in the legislation of the year ; it was not extravagance, it was retrenchment. Unfoitunate party! They had scarcely opened the new campaign before they discovered that the point they proposed to attack was one of the strongest in the works of the administration. How important it is that a party, like an individual, shall be governed by some fixed, defined principles I No mere device, however ingeniously ur ranged, will answer the purpose. THE ARMY, COURTS, AND POLYGAMY IN UTAH The United States found it impossible to execute the laws in Utah, and heuce, in order to main tain the integrity of tho federal government, despatched last year a considerable military force as an atd to the civil authorities. We knew aud regretted the existence of polygamy, that the pluralitywife system prevailed at least amongst the Mormon priesthood. We believe polygamy to be a frightful social evil, and we wonder exceedingly that it could be established anywhere on thia continent, under the predominant control of the American mind. It * TTi.L .? J emu, nowever, ui t mu, uuuvuwoi). But we did not send the army to Utah even to beat down polygamy. We have an abidiug faitli that it can be done otherwise, and that, in any possible contingency, to nae force to improve the moral condition of a distant people like the Mormons would simply be to set the army to the discharge of a duty which they are not wel) qualified to perform. We an not yet advanced far enongh into the intensity ol civilization to enter upon the work of religious crusades. What we want, and what we will have at any cost, is general obedience to the couatilutiou ami laws of the United States. When our good mission ary people shall aee a fit time and place to entei Mormondom with the vital principles of the Chris tian religion for the purpose of overthrowing polygamy, they shall have our hnmble support. We are led to these remarks by reading the charge of Judge Echols to the Grand Jury of Utah, which will be found in another column. This is an inter esting chapter with whicli the new force introduces itself to the Mormon people. We are no friends ol the plurality-wife system ; but we deny that we hav? or may exercise any rightful power over the sub ject. The whole system of Mormon religion belongs exclusively to the peonle of Utah. If we may nol look to them for the needful correction, we may surely rely upon the energy and moral force of tlx American neonle to aDDlv anoroDriate remedies We have no faith or confidence in mere crusadeh We have had enough of that kind of moral diain fectaat in the history of modern temperance and an tHriavery reforme. It is far better to suffer undci the operations of a disease than to seek its retnova by violent and unauthorized means. Blood-letting! I even is <piiie out of fashion ; there are a thojisami remedies by which that fluid of the body can be re- | turned and purified. Polygamy in exotic, ami it never | can be thoroughly acclimated on thia continent. It cannot survive for any considerable time a pure moral atmosphere such as belongs to our system of free inquiry ami judgment. We have a small army?a mere citiacu-soldiery? j officered by gentlemen of great intelligence, probi- ! ty, patriotism, and high character. We have the fullest confidence in the army. On the face of the earth there is 110 body of men of like numbers and profession who combine as much intelligence, integrity, uud high-toned character as the officers of the United Htates army. Their duties are severe and often involve great responsibilities, which they never fail to discharge with the utmost good judgment, energy, and skill. We would trust the army in Utah, or anywhere else on our extended lines, always confident of their blameless conduct, and that they will discharge every duty assigned them with a scrupulous regard to the character of our free institutions. FROM UTA1I. We subjoin a short letter from Gov. Cumming on the subject of aifairs in Utah. It is evident to us that Gov. Cumming is exercising in Utah great good judgment; and we have great hope that he will be able to solve that extraordinary problem in American policy. Gov. Cumming informs ns that the route to California is now open. Ex scum x Omos, Ubkat Salt Lake Citv, (U.

FKOM OUR OWNt'ORRRRFONDNAl. N*w You, June 20,I86f-~12, p. in. It seem* to bo conceded that the Vanderbilt has made the "quickest paaaage on record" across the Atlantic. She arrived here yesterday at lialf-past ten. a. in., from Southampton, having made the paaaage in nine < lay * and filteen bourn apparent time ; and, allowing live hours for difference of longitude, Lu nine days aud twenty hours. ' The Baltic, in June, 1864, made the paaaage from liverpool, which ia seven heur* shorter than tliat from Southampton, in nine days aeventeeu hours and twenty-five minutes. But when the seven hours are deducted for the ! greater distance, the Vanderbilt's passage is reduced to nine days and thirteen hours?four hours and twenty-live I minutes taster than that of the Baltic. These <-alalia I tiuns and figUMS are not my own ; they are only what I hear, and I suppose that they are correct. 'Jhe debate in the House of Lords on the right of I search question on the 8th unit., ia which the Uarls of Clarendon and Muimeskury took part, is not considered quite satisfactory It is true that her Majesty 's foreign secretary has sent out orders to stop the visitation of American vessels in the West India waters ; that tke assurance has been given that, if it prove that the British officers have acted as is alleged, they will be punished, and that it was not the intention or desire of her Majesty's government that her cruisers in the gulf should molest or stop Amerioau merchantmen, whether for the purpose cf search or visitatiou. But it can be easily inferred l'rom Lord Malmusbury's remarks that he seeks to retain a inodiffed right of search under some sort of agreement, and on the pretext that the American flag is used by dishonest traders ; and he will make the couscnt of tiie American government to this agreement u sort of condition precedent to granting us the required satisfaction for the past, and the uecessary guarantees for the future. We want no right of search in any shape. We are fully competent to be our own policemen on the seas us well as on land, and we will not suffer any volunteer supervision, no matter for what purpose. With regard to the conduct of the Uuited Htates in reference to the slave trade, there is no nation in the world more free from even the shadow of reproach. That a few unscrupulous traders should use the United States Hag to protect their illegal traffic with the Cubuus is no reproach to * 1--> A.M..M/U..I tvutl.kit ?.??/! itn unffiouinf rofuum U'liv ji rlfflit should Ihi conceded to a foreign government to HOarch our vessels indiscriminately. Wo must hare au unconditional surrender of this unjustifiable assumption?practically at all event*, if not theoretically; but it would bo better that there were no more "temporary adjustments," and that the question ut issue was settled forever. Let Lord Mnlincsbury 'pitch into'' Spain as much as he pleases. She connives o|>enly at the prosecutiou of the slave trade, and derives a direct profit from it, in flagrant violation of treaty obligations, lord Malmcsbury lias a right to insist on the Spanish government exorcising proper vigilance to put an end to the slave trade in their colonies. This would obviate all necessity for blockading squadrons and visitations, and would be not dtily a far more efficacious but nil infinitely cheaper means of attaining the object which Kuglish statesmen and philanthropists profess to have in view. The Ixrndou Times of the 8th instant seriously remarks: "It is madness to go ou asserting pretentions to which 110 strong and independent power is likely to submit. The practice of searching vessels under the American flag ought to be brought at once to au cml." The jury iu the Canccmi murder case brought iu a verdict of guilty of murder at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, after being locked up from six o'clock 011 Friday evening, it is thought that exception will lie takeu to tho regularity of the trial, 011 the ground tliut 0110 of the twelve jurors was withdrawn, aud that a man cannot consent to anything which may prejudice liiiu in a trial where his life is at stake. It is thought that the fuctof the counsel for the defence having agreed to the withdrawal of the juror wilt debar theui from pleading error in the trial; hut it is doubtful whether the court of appeals will take a similar view. The law positively requires a jury of twelve. The common council committee for the removal of the remains of President Monroe ln-nce to Kichraond have accepted the services of the eighth regiment of New York rnilitia to escort the eoflin from the 2d avenue cemetery the city hall, and those of the National Guards (tth regiment! to escort, them thence to Richmond. The solemn I ceremony will commence at four o'clock on Saturday, July J, and the interment will take place at Richmond on Monday, July 5. The steamship Jamestown, of the Virginia Steam Ship Company, will convey the remains contained in a metal burial case furnished gratuitously by Messrs. Huyle & I'utnam, of Broadway.

THE SEARCH QUESTION IN PARLIAMENT [Kiuui Prucsttiuigs in HurlUuiu-ut, June ttlli.J The Kail of Clahuikjh wished to put a question to his noble friend opposite. the Secretary for Foreign Affairs, with reference to the subject to which the noble and learned lord [Brougham) had just alluded. He wished to know whether his noble friend oould afford the House any information that might tend to allay the grcut uneasiness which hail prevailed 'u the public mind during the last few day* with reference to certain alleged proceeding* ou the part of British cruisers, and the prcparationk it was said the linited Hlatea government were making to prevent acta which they tcgardod as equivalent to that right of search which had never been con- j ceded bv the United Htctou, and whicli were looked upon in tlrat country us national insults. He fliord Clarendon) [ tielieved that no information on the subject had yet been received in this country beyond certain or parte statements i which have lieen published in the United Htates, and the . alwtract of some correspondence which had been laid before the Congress by the 1'resident. There was, therefore, no means of judging how far the cruisers of her Majesty had exceeded their instructions by stopping some American vessels which were engaged in the coasting trade, and by tiring into otheis lie not tmly hoped, j but expected, that it would be found there had been a ' great deal of exaggeration in uio siaieiueuni wnn ii hail I appeared on thin subject, and he hail no doubt that if hia I noble friend had received any information he would not heaitato to lay it before their lordships. At all create, bin , noble friend would probably inform their lordship* whether i he had any ooinuiunication from the United Stated government on the Hubject, and iu what Htate matters were If, an lie (Lord Clarendon) had uo doubt wax the ease, no other or more stringent instructions had been sent out than those under which cruisers had been iu the habit of acting, he felt assured that not only were there no grounds of quarrel between the two governments, hut that the irritation which would be justified if the statements that liad been put forth were true would he hut momeutary. There were no instructions of which he had any knowledge under which the commanders of British cruisers would ho authorised to do what it was said had lieeu done, and if they had exceeded their instructions Her Majesty's government could have uo hesitation in stating that that was the case. This was a question upon which, iu his opinion, it was requisite that great forbearance should lie exercised by both governments [hear, hear] to prevent a state of thiugs which neither of them would desire - -an extension of the slave trade, or a rupture of political relations. The United States government were the first to declare the.slave trade piracy, and he was therefore convinced that the President of the United States and his government wore 110 more desirous tluui were the government of this country that that trade should lie extended. 11 could not be concealed that vessels belonging to the United States had curried on the slave trade 011 the coast of Africa; and he did not see how, unless some right of search was given, the reul nationality of the dag of suspected vessels could be ascertained. [Hear, hear.] Such a right had been admitted by all maritime nations fur their common protection, for without it the most atrocious deeds might be perpetrated and yet remain uupuuishod. But the possession of such a right was a very different thing from the exercise of it. He was certain tiiat no officer commanding a Biitish cruiser, whatever his suspicious might u_ ...... 1.1 ii... ,?r 1.1..., a Ut, ?UUI<* IAUIIIOV ................. vessel if he was really convinced that it was bona Jide Aurcriean. [Hear, hoar.J We were as proud us the Americans were of the honor and independence of our flag, and just as determined to protect it whenever protection was lawfully claimed and could bu legitimately given, | hear, hear ;J hut we should consider our Hug tarnished if it were made a cover for nefarious transactions such ns lie hud referred to ; and, so far from finding fault with any forelgu powers which Bliould interpose to prevent the perpetration of sueh offences, wo should rathsr lie obliged fo them for their interference. [Hear. | He did not think the American government would differ from us on that point, and he therefore hoped that both governments would calmly consider the matter, and, continuing to entertain towards each other friendly feelings ami sentirncnts of mutual res]>ect, come to Boincgood understanding on the subject. He wished to ask his noble friend whether any late communications on this subject hud passed between her Majesty's government and the goveri merit of the United States, and whether anything occurred to justify the apprehensions which liad been entertained ? [Hear, hear.] 'lire Earl of Malxchbury. I am extremely glad that ray noble friend opposite bos prefaced bis question with the judicious language which he has used on this subject. It is of great advantage in a moment of difficulty, when a difference arises between this and auy other country, that mi eminent member of the opposition should rise in Ids place and express sentiments mid views like those to which my noble friend lias just given utterance. I am not in a position to give the House any ascertained information upon this subject. Up to this time our information has, in a great measure, been derived from ex }>arte statements, mode ou the side of the American government. If these are correctly reported, and proven to have really taken place as described by the American government, certainly her Majesty's government ure not prepared to justify them. [Hear.] 1 trust that a greutdeal of exaggeration lias taken place in the descriptions 1 have seen, though, at the same time, i must confess 1 fear that some acts have been committed that ure not justifiable either by international law or by the treaties that exist between this country uud the United States. I am informed that, on one occasion a laxly of men were landed from one of her Majesty's ships on the coast of Culm, though that is of course a Spanish question, which can only be incidentally mentioned when speaking with regard to America, Statements liave also been made that considerable annoyance has been occasioned to American trading vessols lying at imclior at Havana from a system 01 rowing arouuu muse vessels, waicuing wieir cargoes taken out and taken In, exercising surveillance anil espi ouago over thcui, and fin illy dinning tiiein out to ?oa after they left the port. It has also Iteen stated that many American ship* in tlie Gulf have been hruiight to hv our cruiser* and searched. Now, 1 say I have not the least idea whether these statements are correct or not, hut these are the statements made, and yogr lordships know that neither international law nor the treaty of 1843 would justify us in taking such measures as these. I entirely agree witii what my noble friend has said as to the American tiag being constantly prostituted to cover the slave trade, and other illegal ads, and I think it is highly desirable that some agreement should l>o made between the two countries, by which it may lio distinctly understood what proceedings ought to be taken liy their officers respectively for effectually discovering the impositions to which I have alluded, and which will not he offensive to honest trader*! [Hear, hear, j It is to that point I have directed the attention of tlie government of the United 8tales, and that no later than in a conversation which 1 bad this morning with the American minister, and 1 think J" may say there lias not !>ecn any great difference of views between us. [Hear, hear.) | After that conversation has been reported to the United States government, after the delivery of the despatdi which J have written to Lord Napier, and after the orders that have been sent to our officers in those seas, I hope there will lie no repetition of such acts as have been described to us, whether truly or not. [Hear, hear.] in these circumstances I feel that this country need remain under no apprehension that anything will occur to break the alliance that so happily exists between the two countries. [Hear, hear.] The Karl of Iiurdwick said, if any excess had been committed by any of the officers commanding in those seas, it was not in consequence of the instructions that they hod received. [Hear.] The House then adjourned. THE TIMKK ON THE RIGHT OK SEARCH. [From tlio Inmlon Times, June 0.] Home of tlie New York journals suggest, witii laudable candor, arguments not altogether connected witii international luw for resenting the alleged proceedings of the English cruisers on the const of Cuba. Their foreign commerce is, they say, in a state of stagnation, in ami .1..11 ..i.i ?i * would at once, by excluding foreign goods, give an impulse to domestic industry. It might be arged with uot less force that the Indiau reliellion still causes a drain on : our military resources, that the operations in China occupy ? jwrtlon of onr navy, and that It bos recently been thought expedient to provide additional facilities for manning the cliaiuiel fleet. There can lie no doubt that all these circumstances are taken into consideration by writeis who point out the expediency of conquering Cuba and of abrogating the Ciayton-Bulwer treaty under the excuse of , a convenient rupture. England, indeed, has never l>een | involved In real or apparent difficulties without immediate : manifestations of ill will on the other side of the Atlantic, : for, with ptisaling impudence, our national spirit of en ' croachment always seems to display itaelf at the very mo1 ment when additional enmities are more than ordinarily : embarrassing. The patrons of fillibustering expeditions discover with horror that half-a-dosen Irish immigrants have listened to the temptations of an intrusive recruit lust agent, or, as in the present instance, merchant raptains supply the popular demand for a grievance by re- ' porting the so-i-olied outrages of lui|ui*iti\? English o? eers The damorfor reprisals which immediately ensues in the mure popular because experience bat) shown thai the difficulty in always act tied without resort to actual hostilities ; bo that conscientious advocates uf |? acc led themselves juntitled iu making all tile profit which luevilahlv accrnea to the ostentatious champions of u warlike policy. '1'he federal government is never now to echo the ostensible indignation of the conununity ; hut Mr. ituchauan is, fortunately, an aide man, tirmly seated in ; the presidential chair, and he is exempt from Lhu teuiptu lion which induced his predecessor on tlie eve ot an election to hid for a renewal of his office by the dismissal of Mr. Cruiupton. It is a redeeming feature, iiut at the same time an aniinoyiug peenliarity, iu these |>eriodicul quarrels, that American politicians, with an astuteness ci|ual to their puguueity, generally suoceed iu bitting an undeniable blot. Instead of resenting attacks wtiieti ate certainly neither friendly nor generous, we are obliged, at the risk of mis construction mid misrepresentation, to ie|*tir the unintentional irregularity which iuts called forth a mipertlu oiialy iiieuacing remonstrance ; ami patriotic i'reaidents naturally claim as a tribute to their powerihe concessions which are really imposed upon us by the strict letter of the law. It is extremely troublesome to lie couue? ted with a litigious neighbor, but there is uo security against liis attacks excent in the exercise of the utmost caution. Tile lust answer to a blustering complaint of tics pus., is ! it tender of the damages incurred by a thoughtless deviu tion hum the footpath, for if the innocent wrongdoer puts himself on liis defence, the magistrate will lie compelled to vindicate the rights of pro|? rty by u sentence corres|toud ing to tiie chargtnaml probably carrying costs, if ali internulioiml transactions were criticised witii equal sever- j ity, no Stale would ever be disentaiigleti from some threat euing correspondence ; hut the question tor the Knglislt government to consider is not whether lien. Cass's Inn guiigu is conciliatory hut whether American navigators have any lcgul ground of complaint, it wil! pruiuihly appear that the cruisers in the (Suit of Mexico have, in one or more instances, visited ships under the flag of the Union without sufficient justification. The monstrous allegations of tiie individual complainants cannot lie lreld to disprove all tiie statements which they have made, although it is certain tliut m> Kuglish olliccr hoarded a Hits|H i U:d vessel iu a state of iutoxicatlon, that no Kuglish boat's crew took the opportunity to commit u theft, and even that the description of ail officer's trousc.s as mode out of an old bhuiket is due to tiie ingenuity of the angry merchantman, it is highly p reliable that the noisiest complainants are interested itt tire slave trade, now carried ott almost entirely uudcr the American tiag ; hut their manners and their moral character concern their countrymen alone, und if any of tire alleged facts arc possibly pruned the Kuglisli cruisers will proliulily la; found to Iravo exceeded the law. The slave trade treaties, by creating a mixed relation between war and peace, have introduced an unexpected difficulty In tiie maritime law. lielligercut ships-of-war arc undoubtedly entitled to visit neutral lucrchuut vessels for the purpose of verifying tliuir right of exemption from capture ; and, as a right of seizure lias liecn s|>cciully conceded by Spain tuiil Ity some other powers in the case of slavers if. follows thai, vessels of those countries arc also liable to visitation. It is agreed on ull hands that no such liability existed as to her nationality. It is only when the stars and str^ies are supposed to be fraudulently hoisted that the cruiser can protend to visit a vessel which is suspected to be Hpauislt or Portuguese as well as to be engaged in the slave trade. If it is true that several American vessels have beeu stopped ou this grouud of suspicion, it enuriot lie denied thut a series of offensive mistakes may require explanation, and possibly redress. General l'ass seems to be justitied in saying that the ease is analogous to the arrest of a suspected criqpinal by a policeman who is personally res|K)nsible in ease of error. If instances of false imprisonment occurred in rapid succession, a further question would probably arise as to the good faith or discretion of the officers, and it is barely possible that the commanders of the English cruisers may, in their indignation against the American slavers, have misunderstood the extent of their (towers, but neither Lord Malmesbury nor Admiral Stewart will venture to justify or support any attempt to claim for England the invidious right of exercising a general maritime police. The Is-st excuse for the presence of the squadron off the ports of Culm is to lie found in the suggestion of the American government, that the blockade should be transferred from Africa to the West Indies ; yet it might have been foreseen that the vicinity of the unpopular flag would serve as a cause or excuse for irritation in the Union. A Russian fleet in the North sea would not put un end to all suspicion by explaining that it was engaged under some treaty in suppressing the contraband trade of the Norwegian fishermen. The police exercised liy the cruisers In the Gulf is partial and habitually legal, hut std > It is carried on in American waters and it is a police. JC it cannot be withdrawn at once, in immediate defer etwe to menacing complaints, the present state of affairs ought to compel an early termination of the most anomalous system which ever gave gratuitous provocation to foreigners. It is (leeuliarly unfortunate that the antislavery crusade should alienate from England the portion of the American community which would otherwise be drawn nearer to us by interest and liy inclination. During the enlistment dispute the only temperate or friendly language used towards England proceeded from the southern senators, and the journals of the slave States proclaimed with amusing extravagance the superiority of the old country to the hated Yankee territories in the North. Anglophobia is adopted by conflicting orators mid factious princi|ially because it is supposed to involve a sentiment of unanimous suspicion nnd dislike. 11' the cotton-growers were by the suspension of the slave trade agitation left to the natural operation'of their syuqiathies with the cottonbuyers, quarrels witli England would liecoinc doubtful party questions, instead of furnishing a common fund of popularity .to conflicting demagogues. It will be highlydesirable to confine the Impending controversy to the facts of the alleged aggression. Any general discussion of the policy of America in regard to the slave trncle will only give unprofitable offence. U in certain that the existing treaty bus not licen vigorously executed, and still more certain that no American President will offend the most influential portion of his constituents by emulating the zeal of the Knglish cruisers on the consts of Africr or of Cuba, but prudent governments, like men of sense in prhate life, look for no efforts of extraordinary zeal from those who comply against their will. MEWS FROM CUB A?ANOTHER VESSEL VISITED. The mail steamer Black Warrior arrived at New York on the I Dth instant, briuging news from Havana to the 15th. The United States steamers Fulton and Sea Witch luid boon cruising for file Styx and Buzzard, but had not fallen in with them. At last report they hod touched at Cardunas and resumed their cruise. The American shipmasters in Havana were to hold a meeting on the 15th, to pledge themselves to sustain the Sickles resolutions, and to make arrangements to put their vessels upon a footing to resist insolence and assault upon the high sea... The Daubs!) harque had luiuled 502 Asiatics at Havana a large nuuilier having died on the voyage. Information readies us by this arrival of the double visitation of the American barque Munition, ('apt. .lames H. Salter, by British cruisers. The subjoined is Captain Salter's statement: ' On the passage of the barque Marmion from Havana to Sagtia la Grande on the 17th of Mny, at 11, a. m., a British num-of-war steamer,called, to iuy best knowledge and belief, the Styx, fired a gun, and soon after came within hail, tuul ordered me to heave to, which 1 did, at the some time setting my colors. An officer on board of the steamer asked me the linmc of my vessel, where from, where Uiund, Ac. I responded, and then asked them if they hod got through. To which question receiving no reply, I filled away and stood on my oourse. On the 22d of May, at 11, p. to., a strong breeze Mowing from northeast by north at the lime, and lieing under single reefed upper court*'* and mainsail brailcd up, on account of heavy squalls passing during the night, within three miles of Key Verde bank, standing off shore, a shot was fired across the Marmion'a bow, and soon after a boat came alongside. As soon as the boat arrived withi in hail I asked what boat it wan, and received in responstt I that it was a man-of-war's boat, and was ordered to buck ! my main yard, which I complhd with. My vemcl at the time being in ballast, drifted at the rate of two and a half miles per hour towards shore. The officer commanding the Iwat came on Itoard, when 1 asked him if be came to take charge of the American bnrqne M arm ion, and he replied in the negative. Whereupon I filled away to keep off shore. The officer then came aft on tho poop, demanding in on authoritative tone the name irf the vessel, where from, where bound, her owners, and the flag under which she sailed, and other similar questions ; furthermore insisting upon seeing the colors, which were shown to him after the various questions had I wen answered. After the officer had exhausted his catalogue of questions, I inquired ot him to what man-of-war and nation he Iwlonged, in answer to which he informed me that he Iwlongod to her Britannic Majesty's war steamer Buzzard 1 therefore protested against their proceedings as illegal anil unauthorized, by causing useless detention when the ship was in a dangerous position, putting in Jeopardy the lives and property under my charge, to avail myself hereafter for indemnity, Ac.

Yet on the very day Gov.

R jroot; rcbol's chargk to tiir ukasu just. We cannot conceal from ourselves the knowledge of the fact that certain domestic arrangements exist in this Territory at war with those which pertain to all other Christian communities, and destructive of the peace and good order of society. Polygamy exists in Utah to a very considerable extent, while it is forbidden by every other State and Territory of the Union. It is not for you to inquire where this institution hail its origin, or when or wiint were the cousequcnees resulting from it. It is our duty to inquire whether it is authorised by law, and if not, by what statute, if any, it is punishable. It is understood that the United States acquired alt of this territory that is inhabited by treaty from Mexico. As the law of Mexioo stood at the time of the treaty, polygamy was prohibited in this country. The municipal law in this respect was not changed by its cession to the United States. Has it, then, been altered since wr acquired it! After the moat diligent search and inquiry I have beun enabled to make, 1 have found none, and presume the law is therefore unchanged; and hence all marriages after the first, whilst it remains in full force, are illegal and void. Is there any law in force in this Territory under which this practice is punishable ? I find no statute punishing polygamy, but there is one. how ever, for the punishment of adultery, and all Illegal in teroourse between the sexes, if either of the parties have a husband or wife living at the time, is adulterous and punishable bv indictment. The punishment prescribed by this statute is imprisonment tor a period of not less than three nor more than twenty years, or by fine not less than three hundred nor more than one thousand dollars, or Itotki by tine anil imprisonment, at the discre tion of the jury trying tho cause. No consequence* in which a large proportion of this l>ooplc may be involved, in consequence of their criminal practice, wiH doler you from a fearless discharge of your duty. It is yours to find tho foots, and to return indict incuts, without four, favor, olfaction, reward, or any hope thereof. The law was mode to punish the lawless and disobedient, and society is entitled to the salutary effects of its execution. AHK1VAL OF THE SALT LAKE MAIL IN SIXTEEN DAYS. [From tho St. Joseph h (Mo.) Journal, June 144b.J The Halt lake mail arrived in thi* city yesterday about noon. We are indebted to the conductor, Mr. James E Bromley, for the following particulars : The mail left Camp Scott on the 29th of May. Gov. Cumilling hod been escorted into Salt Lake City by the Mormons, kindly treated, and then eacortad back tu General Johnston's command. He waa at Camp Scott at tho time the mail loft. The Mormons were moving theii women and children out of the city to Pravo, about fortylive miles south, in the valley. The Mormons sold they would surrender to the civil officers, but the troops should not enter. Seventy families of Mormons had arrived at Camp Scott, asking protection. General Johnston re ceived them kindly, and promised them an eacort into the States. General Johnston's command had only two days' rations in camp when the mail left. The men had lieeu living on eight ounces of flour and one-half pound of beef per day for two weeks past. They had suffered greatly through tho winter both for food and raiment General Johnston intended entering Salt I aire City soon as Colonel liolfioau arrived, leaving enough men to garrison Fort Bridger. Coining in, the party met Captain Haws, of tho 2d dragoons, with 250 head of beet cattle, at Ham's fork, only fifteen miles this side of . Camp Scott; met lieutenant Smith, 2d dragoons, on | Green river, fifty miles this side, travelling at the rate of forty-eight miles |?er day; and seventy-five miles further on, at the east crossing of Kig Sandy, met Colonel Hotl man's command with full supplies; met Colonel An drews, of tho fitli infantry, ut the crossing of South Platte; Colonel Sumner, of the 1st cavalry, at Oak Grove, on the little Blue ; Colonel May at Big Blue, and Hie last troop* 2d dragoons, at Nemaha. Mr. llroinlcv. the conductor, renorts the road in on a* ful condition, Several of the streams were scarcely fonl able. Grass good. A passenger came in from Fort laramie. The only Indians heard of on the ion to was a ?ar , j?nrty of forty-five Arrapahocs, on the l.iUle Bine, The mail party ]w?8t)il there in the night, and conse<iiu",1T did not see the Indians. Mr. Hroiniey reports tiiat lie met Col. Kane and party coming on aa he passed out with the mail, 2ti0 miles this side of Camp Scott. He went on to Camp Scott, remained the whole of one day, ami then returned, arriving only one day behind Col. Kane, not withstanding he had to lay by a day and travel Us 1 .111" miles further. Mr. Bromley, coming in, some days trav died as far as P5 miles, and averaged over sixty-five miles the whole trip. Having come through from Fort llriilg< r to this city in precisely 16 days, which is the quickest trip on record, he is justly entitled to the reputation of being the Aubrey of the present day. [from (lie St. I/nil* Ko publican, Juno lHtli ) Tlie Marmans, it will be observed, have stopped in their tiiglit at Provo, one of the strongest of their settle ments, about forty miles from Salt Lake City.
