MORMON ORGANIZATION Constitutes the closest corporation of any on earth—either military, civil (W religious. It is the most ab solute despotism extant—Brigham is the Great 1 Am over the Saints both for this and the world to come. But he goes everything on this world— for making the most of it as most in accordance with the general tenor of the Bible, which the Mormon mind interprets almost wholly in its lite ral sense. The organization may be compared more nearly to that of a regiment of soldiery than anything I can think of The Presidential Triumvirate ; the Twelve Apostles ; and Elders, or Seventies,—answer to regimental officers, captains, lieu tenants, sergeants and corporals. While the police foree may be con sidered the same as privates, for all bands are in a manner implicated to a certain extent in running the ma chine,—directly or indirectly. The intention is to have every male indi vidual hold himself in read ness to go where, or do whatever the proph et says ; and that every person must do something in the community for the materai prosperity thereof ; and ■every household -be subject to the supervision of the church, os respects cleanliness and good order. Schools are established throughout the set tlements, and I believe a certain amount of education is imperative ; though as a general thing I doubt if the system is as beneficial or liberal to the rising generation a* the Amer ican. To give yon an idea of the absolutism of Brigham, while I was in the city it so happened that he conceived the notion that a new set tlement was necessary. They rail the outposts or far-out settlements stakes. miles, in Bear Lake valley, one Sun day afternoon, after service in the Tabernacle, a list of 100 names was read to the congregation, of persons selected in some manner at head quarters. who were to pull up as they could well arrange and go to the new " stake " and build it up. No milter how much hard work these people may have done, or where ; how good a home they may have established,—a call of this kind compels them to dispose of their property if necessary, or even rifice it, and leave for the sagebrush again. 1 understood that young men w( . r( . j n g certain sense preferred for expeditions of this sort, as it sort of compelled them to take a wife with them -an appendage deemed every wav essential to the greatest good to tli<* community as a whole, member there was quite an amount of gossip over the call in question for a week or two before it came ofT, and no little anxiety expressed on the part of the young bucks.

This fcllew was back at the city finishing uri settled on up ills business remaining He was an elderly man, and bail to abandon a comfortable homestead and go off on that wild undertaking. Instead of complaining at his lot. he appeared to be perfectly content ; and on the question of the religious dogma he was at least an undying adherent, ordered out of a good home, after working half a lifetime to acquire it. to be compelled to do the same work and more too over again, lite rally discounted all my stock of the ridiculous.

Brigham's photo graph shows him very well, was born in year one, consequently he is not far from three score and ten, though he don't look older than ] fifty.
