U.Ia none of it paid to Bishops end ether digultarios of tbe Church 1 B. Y. Not one penny. No Bishop, no Lldcr, no Deacon, or other church officer, receives any compensation for his official ser vices. A Bishop is often reqnired to put Ms hand in his own pocket and provide there from for the poor of hit charge ; bnt he never rereive anything for his services. II. U. How, then, do your ministers live ? II. Y. I$y the labor of their own hand, like the Erst Apostles. Every Bishop, every Elder, may be daily seen at work in the field or the shop, like his neighbors ; every minister of the Church has his proper calling by which be earns the bread or bis family he who cannot or will not do the Church's work for nothing is not wanted in her scr vieo ; even our Lawyers ( pointing to Qen.

Just as any one else would ; the clerks in the ti thing-store are paid like other clerks, but no one is ever paid for any service pertaining to the ministry. We think a man who can not make his living aside from the Ministry of Christ, nnsuited to that office. lam call ed rich, and consider myself worth (250,000 ; but no dollar of it was ever paid me by ihe Church or for any service as a minister of tbe Lverlasting Gospel. I lost nearly all I had when we were broken np in Missouri and driven from that State; I was nearly stripped again when Joseph Smith was mur dered and we were driven from Illinois; but nothing was ever made up to me by tbe Church, nor by any one. I believe I know ho to atqnire property and how to take (merit. S. O. Can yen give me any rational ex- yrawatioa or the aversion and hatred with which your people are generally regarded by those among whom they have lived and with whom they have been brought directly fa eontactr B. Y. No other explanation than is af forded by ihe crucifixion of Christ and the kindred treatment of God's ministers, proph ets and saints in all ages. II. G. I know that a new sect is always decried and traduced that it is hardly ever deemed respectable to belong to one that tbe Baptists, Quakers, Methodists, TJniver Balitts, &.c, have each in their tnrn been re garded in the infancy of their sect as the offscouring of the earth; yet I cannot remem ber that either of them were ever generally represented and regarded by the older sects of their early days as thieves, robbers, mur derers. B. Y. If yon will consult the cotempo rary Jewish accounts of tbe life and acts of Jesus Christ, yon will find that he and his disciples were accused of every abominable deed and purpose robbery and mnrder in cluded, fcucn a work is still extant, and may be toond by those who seek it. II. G. What do you say of the so called Danitea, or Destroying Angels, belonging to your Church? R. Y. What do you sayf I know of no inch band, no such persons or organization. 1 hear of them only in the slanders of our enemies. II. G. TTlih r?jard, then, to the same qacs'.ion on which yonr doctriue and practi ces are avowedly at war with those of tbe Christian worlds that of a plurality of wives is tbe system of yonr Church accep table to the majority of its womeu ? B. Y. They could not be more averse to ft than I was when it was first revealed to ns as the divine will. I think they general ly accept it, as l do, as the will of God. II. 0. How general is polygamy among you? B.Y. -I could not say. Some of those present (heads of the Church) have each out one wife; others have more; each deter mines what is his individual duty. II. (. hat u tbe largest nnmber of with belonging to any one man ? B. Y. 1 have fifteen; I know no one who hi more; but some of those sealed to me are old ladies whom I regard rather as Bothers than wive, bat whom I have ta ken home to cherish and support. II. G. Does not the Apostle Paul say that a bishop should be " tbe husband of one wifer B. Y. So we hold. We do not regard any bat a married man as fitted for tbe office of bishop. But the Apostle does not forbid a bishop having more wives than one. U. G. Does not Christ say that be who pats away bis wife, or marries one whom an other puts away, commits adultery ? B. V. Yes; and I hold that no man shonld ever put away a wife except for adultery not always even for that. Such Is aty individual view of the matter. I do aotsay that wives have never been put away in our Church, but that I do not ap prove of tbe practice. II. G. How do you regard what is com monly termed tbe Christian Sabbath T B. Y. As a divinely appointed day of rest. We enjoin all to rest from secular la bor on that day. We would hare no man enslaved to the Sabbath, but we enjoin all to respect and enjoy it. Such Is, as nearly as I can recollect, tbe tbstanca of nearly two hours' conversa tion wherein much was said incidentally that would not ba worth reporting, eveu it I eoold remember and reproduce it, aud wherein others bore a part ; but, as Presi nt Yonng is tbe first minister of the Mormon Church, and bore tbe principal Cart in the conversation, I have reported is answers alone to my questions and ob - cervations. The others appeared uniformly to defer to bis views, and to acquiesce fully in his responses and explanations. lie spoke readily, not always with gramatical accuracy, but with no appearance of hesi tation or reserve, and with no apparent de airs to conceal anything, nor did be repel any of my questions as impertinent, He was very plaiuly dressed in thin summer clothing, and with no air of sanctimony or fuoaticitiin.- In appearance, he U a portly, frank, good-natured, rather thick-set man cf fifty-five, leemiog to eujoy life, aud be in no particular Lurry to get to heaven.

I do not believe Freaideut Young h'tnself could pre sent them in terms calculated to reuder them less obnoxious to tbe Gentile world than tbe above. But I have a right vo add here, because I said it to the assembled chiefs at tbe dote of the above colloquy, that the dcgredafion (or, if you please the restriction) of Woman to the single office of child-bearing and its accessories, is an Inevitable consequence of the system here paramount. I have uot observed a sign in the streets, an advertisement in tbe jour nals, of this Mormon metropolis, w hereby a woman proposes to do anything whatever. No Mormon has ever cited to me his wife's or any woman's opinion on any subject ; no Mormon woman has been introdu.-ed or spoken to me ; and, though I have been asked to visit Mormons in their houses, co one has spoken to bis wife (or wives) de siring to see me, or his desiring mo to make her (or their) acquaintance or voluntarily indicated the existence of such a being or beings. I will not attempt to report our talk on tbisjsubject, because, nnlike what I have above given, it assumed somewhat the character of a disputation, aud I could hardly give it impartially; but one remark made by President Youug I think I can give accurately, and it may serve as a sam ple of all that was offered on tbat side. It was in these words, I think, exactly : "If I did uot consider myself competent to transact a certain busiucss without tak ing my wife's or any woman's counsel with regard to it, I think I ought to let that business alone." The spirit with regard to Woman, of the entire Mormon, as of all other polygamic systems, is fairly displyed in mis avowal, .bet any such system be come establishcdaud prevalent, and Worn an will be couuned to tho harem, and bcr appearance in the street with nnveiled face will be accounted immodest. I joyfully trust tbat the genius of the Nineteen tn Century tends to a solution of the problem of Woman's sphere and destiny radically H. G. WEEKLY TELEGRAPH.

Locofocoism seems to be losing whatever remnant of rjropriety it may have left, in its hilarity over the discovery that tbe slaves of Judge biioLsos, when that gentleman left the land of bondage, some 15 or 20 years ago, were old, instead of being manumitted. They first charged him with being a practical abolitionist; and, worst or all, proved it by his having eman cipated his slaves io Mississippi and moved to a free State. This was enough to deprive him of every democratic vote, for there is nothing a democrat hates so much as the idea that a man should be free; and to have anything to do with freeing a man is enough to secure a democrat's OQdviog hostility. Now, we suppose tbe dis covery only remains to be made, tbat he is in favor or sending back into"scrvitude, npon tho authority or tome juggling power or attorney, Issued by a second or third deputy clerk of a Southern county court, any one or dusky com plexion found north of tbe Potomac, to induce them to give the Judge their cordial snpport The anloity between slavery and modern demo cracy has become almost as marked as that be tween democracy and public plunder, tbe only features of any boldness io the protraiture of the party. Th Senatorial War, is becoming some what interesting. There are four candidates io tbe field, instead of three, as we stated a week or two since. These are all located at Paioee villo.

Tb hurrah Ibat went np from the more windy portion of our Sham friends, at the announcement of J ml go Ranney's intention to stump the 8tate, seems to be hardly justified by his bearing since the ball has been opened. II is effort at Zanes ville oo the 16th, Is reported io bi been a decided failure. Stat affairs, he Indulged a very natural Inclination to Igoore, though even on tbat subject, it was hardly wise to make a show of courage and general information, inas much as the office for which he is running has no Immediate concern with other than home matters. He occupied his time almost exclusive ly with rather commonplace remarks on popular sovereignty and the fugitive slave law. He was understood to take the aide of squatter sover eignty and expressed himself in favor of sustain ing tho fugitive slave law, notwithstanding his seal, nine years ago, for nullifying the same. The Courier says : " He told how the delegates from the fret Stat in th Federal Convention inserted in the Constitution the provision, ' that when a slave escaped into arre State, (these were his words) he should be delivered np upon claim, Pray, Judge, will you tell us how many free States there were at that time; and in what edition or the Constitution the words 'fret State" occur T One other point, noticed by tho Courier, de serves attention, as showing the degree of can dor and honesty which Judge Ranney manifests while soliciting the suffrages of the people. Referring to the presence of Gov. Chase at the Cleveland meeting : " He said in effect, ' that a meeting number ing 10,000, composed of men or all parts of the Reserve, who had gone there nnder the promise that they should tear down the jail in which were incarcerated a nnmber of men who had violated the Fugitive Slave Law, met at Cleve land, a short time ago, and he was sorry to say, that tUb Chief Executive of the great State of Ohio was present encouraging them." This is a grave charge. Now let us see how Gov. Ciusa "encouraged" tbis unlawful riotous proceeding. The following ex tracts from his speech on that occasion, will show : " He was not expecting to bo present to-day; but had felt it bis duty to come. He bad not, however, come to advise them to do anything which tbey hereafter might have occasion to re He bad not come to counsel any violence. Tbe American people, having the control of all power by the ballot boxes, it was for them to do in their own legitimate way. "It was not necessary that we, the sovereigns the land should resort to any measures which could not be carried out at all times, and under circumstances." " Let the Courts be appealed to, and let them in accordance with their own conscience their duty between themselves and their God. Tbe great remedy is in the people them selves at tbe ballot box. Elect men with back bone, who will stand np for their rights, no matter what forces are arrayed against them." we cannot put a high estimute npon tbe moral iutegrity of a man who would so wanton pervert history, and utter so palpable a slan der against the man whose place (in tbe lan guage of Douglas) he is after. If we are not mistaken, Judge Ranney will find very few audiences in Ohio, whom be can profitably at tempt to impose upon in tbis unscrupulous manner.

Dear Sir: We find it necessary to call your attention to tbe assessment levied on your Pre mium Note on tbe 2d of July last, and which remains unpaid. We desire to collect the as sessment with as little expense as possible, both tbe members and the company; aad to avoid any extra expense and trouble, we hope yon will, on receipt of this, remit the amount due from you at once. Members will bear in mind that the amount due from each, respectively, is too small to jus tify the expense of sending agents all through the country to collect, and consequently tbero oo other alternative only to send an account unpaid assessment to the propor officers for collection. Tbis will be done unless tbe amount forwarded without further , delay. After re ceiving this notice, should members allow their assessments to remain unpaid, they will have no occasion to complain if costs are made. Tho amount duo from each being so small, we be lieve there are but few members who cannot as well pay now as at any other time. Yours H. H. HATCH, Secretary. Our opinion, we believe is the common one entertained in tbis quarter, that an Insurance company that pays no losses, and the principle business of which is laying assessments upon every new victim, who signs a premium note, is essentially a swindling concern. Tho menaces the company, therefore, have no terrors, end fail of the object, so far as its scrtio upon is concerned. The Washington Union Insur ance Company can just go its gait, and fortune favoring, we will endeavor to go onrs.

Whilst the Committee were absent the old warriors compaired notes and told their person el experiences of the war of 1812. The committee oo Resolutions reported the following which were discussed and adopted : RESOLUTIONS. Rcsohtd, The first duty of a Republic is gratitude and generosity toward her gal lant i;c!enclcrs in hours of danger. Resolved, Tbat a Government that is able to expend $20,000,000 yearly to sop- port a standing Army and JNavy should not be too poor to remember her aged and decrepid .soldiers the men who in the vig or of their yonth promptly answered their Country's call, and bravely sustained her rigbta when the enemy's fleets lined our coast, and his savage allies raised their war cry upon her frontiers. Resolved, In the opinion of this meeting of Old Soldiers, tbat it is the duty of Con gress to amend the Pension Laws so that those who served in the War of 1812, and their widows, shall be entitled to a pension the same as those who served in the Revo lutionary War ; and that where any of our comrades have been killed in action, or died without receiving land, the nation owes to their heirs, without regard to age, if their be no widow, 160 acres of land. And it is the duty of Congress to author ize the issue of said warrants under the same conditions as the heirs of tne Mexi can War are now authorized to receive land warrants. Resolved, That we know wo are right, and we will uot give np our cause until tbe gratitude and sense of justice which we be lieve lives in tbe hearts of the American People, shall make itself felt among their servants at Washington. Resolved, That we recommend to the Old Soldiers throughout the country to hold meetings and to enforce this subject upon the consideration of Congress. Resolved, That we tender our hearty thanks to the citizens of Painesville for their generosity and atteution to ns ; also those Railroad Companies who have reduc ed their fare to facilitate our coming here ; to all editors of papers who have or will advocate our just claims, und those of our compatriots of the War of 1812, and their widows und children.

An excellent dinner at the Cowles House and Franklin House followed the adoption of the resolutions. After dinner the convention again organized, and, after short speeches, adopted the following preamble aud resolutions : We recommend to oar surviving com rades uud the heirs of those who are de ceased, in every State and county of the United States, to organize and appoint competent and thorough men, who are not politicians, whose duty it shall be to con fer with the Committees in other States, and with all candidates for President, Con gress and Legislatures of each State, and ascertain the views of all candidates, and communicate them to every corresponding Secretary of the country, by circular let ters ; and we hereby pledge ourselves to vote for no candidate fQr any such office who is not known to be an open and avow ed friend to equal justice to tho survivors of 1812, and the heirs of those who are deceased.
