Is the dullest thing ever conceived j on earth (or in heaven if you will.) ; There isn't money enough to hire ; me to read it connectedly, and no I man living or dead ever did or could j make a bit of sense of it. It's the ' merest bosh ever written or printed, and the Mormons know it as well as anybody. I couldn't learn that any use was ever made of it except as ! to occupy space on a table or in a ! library—as the old and new Testa- ! ments do in most Gentile households. ! If there is anything original about j the Book of Mormon, it is of the j Mark Twain style—excessive stupid ity. That is the way of Mark's hu mor—it may be the point to the Book of Mormon. Everybody has heard of Joe Miller's joke-book ; I beg leave to insist that Joe Smith's i joke-book is the Book of Mormon, j As a joke, it may be a success : as j anything else, it is a nuisance. Said I to have been transcribed from two j dozen plates of brass ; to have pub-1 lisbed it, I should think would have j required more brass than that, There are many passages in this book which are almost literally cop ied from the Bible, yet. they are ren-1 dered absurd by the association. ! The Mormons use the common Bible, and like every other creed,—inter prêt it to suit themselves. By read ing and inquiring, I tried my best to get some sort of an idea of what the Mormon creed consists of in the ab stract, but the attempt was barren of results ; I don't know as much about it as a Chinaman. Perhaps not as much. I remember that an enthusiastic old believer in Mormon prophecy told me that the chapter in Revelations regarding the six hundred and three score beasts TUB BOOK OV MORMON meant the number of religious de nominations that were to precede the coming ot the Mormon church, &c. As 1 never counted it up, I am not prepared to refute him ; but if he insists on designating these creeds and churches as so many beasts, I will classify the Mormon institution with that species of animal frequent ly alluded to by Rabelais—''the two-backed beast,"or"two-beUieil > " as you like. Rabelais called the church of Rome, in the days of its excessive licentiousness, the "two backed beast, - ' which the monks, in their "indulgences," could feed on to their heart's content. I think the idea of Mormondom is made amply In the plain to the dullest mind, same connection, I may say that as nearly as I could come at Brigham's notion of revelation is, that there are innumerable souls or spirits beg ging about for entrance into this life through the fleshy avenues and tem ples made and provided here to re ceive them ; and it is fulfilling the Divine calling here below to the greatest extent by preparing as many temples for that purpose as possible. There is no joking in this—it is un doubtedly the corner-stone of tbe Latter-Day Church. The proposed Temple at Salt Lake is to be in re ality but typical of the human tem ple being erected in the modern Zion. I heard Brigham preach on two set occasions, and either time he alluded to a remark made by Beecher to the effect that the great est misfortune that could happen to man was to be born. Brigham, on the contrary, said it was the greatest blessing that could happen,provided a mau made the most of this world after being born into or on it. He enlarged on tbe material beauties of nature and things, aDd concluded that, where folks lived as they ought to, it was good to be here ; in other words, it was a bully place to be. To enjoy life, be agreed ihat happi ness depended on health and tem perance in all things. He made a : good poinl on Ihn utmost utter ab- , sen ce of doctors and lawyers in j Utah. His preaching amounts to! little more than exhortations to la I bor, temperance and quietude—ex- j cept in the matter of the simpler : amusements. Dancing is universal j and indulged to a great extent. The children are taught it at school, and tl * s common to bear music and dancing in the different wards ; va cations, etc., are usually heralded through a heel-and-toe exercise of this kind. The theater at Salt Lake is a prominent institution for divert mg the Saints from too much study of civil and religious government, It is a comfort to get into a comtnu n 'ty lor a lew weeks where one is not bored by precinct statesmen on j every hand ; church and state are • entirely left to Brigham, and all j bands have no abstractions to mud-1 die their brains about, but go along j —eat, drink, sleep, wag his tail, and i die when the dog has had his day. Most all matters of dispute are left to the church, and Mormon lawyers ' will often tell those seeking advice I to go to Brigham, or the Bishop, as j the case may be, and settle it there, j Did you ever know a Gentile lawyer j to send his client to a minister of the gospel in the neighborhood? 11 would like to see a set ol Gentile j lawyers and court give up all claims j to lees, and advise their clients to go betöre the nearest minister, muke triends and the whole be dismissed j with a benediction ; I should cou- | sider it better than a menagerie 4of j trained annuals. The Mormons come j nearer this sort of thing than any religious sect 1 know of, and thereiu they have more nearly established their boasted millenium on earth. 1 j would like to see Brigham try his i hand on the Irish and Chinese ol j San Francisco —I think be .would conclude that he had just reached instead of succeeded the six hund red and odd beasts of Revelations. For further particulars, I refer to the Book of Mormon—con I ! i you turning the history ol Moroni, Nephi j and other illustrious dead beats too numerous to mention. J.
