Every body should read it: From the Boston Investigator. Mr;. Euitqr: Thc challenge put forth in voir last issue by the Mormon, Mr. Bernard Snow, is hereby accepted. Mr. Snow says: "What I wish more particularly to speak of, is, the impression very comnun in the minds of the people at large, viz.: "That the "Mormons" are living in open violation of the laws of our country, an I bidding de fiance to the powers of the United States!" ; Nothing can be more false than this. They , evef ,. f j I a law-abi ding people, anl I defy the; world to pro duce the first instance where the Mormons as a people have resisted th2 laws of our country. The italics are Mr. Snow's. Whcthorhe be really honest in making this deüaiit statement, or, whether he b no' la king in information of Hie history of Mormonicm, the reade must juh?e. 1 can prove the Mormon lea lc; have held tha: they or their sect were justly entitle 1 to the tempo ral domin on of these United Stat-; an 1 that they are to gain it by tho swp4 if not by pea -eable m in. Nay, more, 1 can prove that the High Priest of Mormonim. "Joseph Smith, Jr., Hiram Smith, Sidney Bigdon," and about fifty other Mormons, "were arraigned be I ore the Hon. Austin A. King. Judge of the fifth judicial circuit in the State of Missouri, at the Court House in Richmon 1. in a criminal Court of Inqui ry, began Nov. 12, 1 v:is. and charge I with ths several crimes of hiyh treason against the State, murder, hnryJury, arson, ro'iLery and lar cny," and of which they uvre guilty, according to the testimony OT a large num ber of unimpeachable witnesses, mot ot whom were or had been Mormons! Here is the proof: 1. In th? Mormon Creel, entitled "Doc trine and Covenants of the ChurA of the Latter Day Saints, carefully seleete 1 and compiled from the lievelation of lo hj&y Joseph Smith. Jr., Oliver Cowdry, Sidney liiglon, F.G.Williams, (Presiding El ders of said Church,) propiictorojivirt lan l. Ohio. Printed by Williams St Co., 1835. This book is of Divine authority among Mormons. Now turn to page 138, and we find the following language: "For behold I say unto you, the Lord willeth that tlie disciples Mormons and the children of men persons not Moimöns should open their hearts even to purchase this who:.e mjmoi or OOCXTKY as soon as time will permit. "Behold, here is wisdom; let them do this, J.sr they receive mine inheritance, save it be the sheddirrj cf Mood." "Wherefore the laid of Zion these United States shall not be obtained but by pureJoase or ly blooJ.' lb. page 143. "And now 1 Fav unto yon, keep thest things from ooing a'road unto the ux rld, until it is expedient in me that jra may ac complish this work. ke., in the eye o! your enemies, that they may not know your voks, until ye have accomplished the thing which I command you." lb. page 132. Here, then, is proof, such as no Mormon can consistently dispute, as it is from the Book they consider Divine, and of binding and paramountocthoritv with them. And this Book tea-ties, what all Mormon-: be fore, that it is God's will that they should vrain pessessioa of this whole country, ! either by purchase or by con (liest; an I, il our Government stanl in th.ur wav, they s W arebounl to destroy it. That tho Mor mons in Missouri so understoo I Mormon ism, when they robbed post offices, com mitted theft anl murder, is proved by documents publish? I by ihz Congress of these Unite I States, llcnee, I oSaei 99 2. My next p oof is "Cong cssion.il Do2um?ut No. 189 20th Cong. ess, Sac on l S;ssion. published by order of the U.S. Senate, Fe1). 15, 1841." This is aa 8vo. pamphlet of aoout 50 page, and con tains the testimony of a large number of Mormons un ler oath, proving that the lead ers and others of the seet had robbed the post office, engage I with a gang of counterfeit ers, coiners and blaek legs, cheating and burning property. Indeed, the testimony of the Mormons, proving their High Priest and leaders guilty of "the several crimes of hh treason, mnrder, bnrglary, arson, robbery and larceny," would fill two or three numbers of this paper. John Cor- ro!l, a Mormon, testifies ax follows: "This Mormon Church has been reprc sente 1 as being tha little ston: spoken of by Daniel, which should roll on and crtsh a IX opposition to it, aOd ultimately ho as Th blv religion binds them to ultimately annihi late all Governments that eondict with the Mormon Church; and it was this prjxciple which led to the outrages committed in Missouri twenty years since, an account of which is set forth in the "Document" pub lished by Congress. Were it not for oc cupying so mach space, I would quote largely from this document, showing the ENoaMous crimes committed by ths Mor mon lea lers, who organised "seeret oath hound societies" for this DUroose: -rimes. .1. 1.1a - ' me reci.ai of hieb is enouarh to chill one's blcKKl, and which show what Irin ! i ot a "law a m JstMOg people'' tho Mormon? are, wh-ro th?ir religion and their oaths binl tham to kill and destroy tha Gteatües.

Mr. Snow somewhat naively says: "True, Wh (fee world are pleased to call "Polygamy," exists to some extent in Utah, not however as a civil institution of the Territory, nor will it Ihj recognized in the State, if so be a State is granted; but purely as a sacred religious institution, to whi h onlv the pure and virtuous can be a linkte 1.'"' Mr. Snow's authority for having two or two hundred wives, please, notice, is drawn X.&'from the invisible world! It rests pg "revelations" fron: the unseen! That is the sour-e whence the authority for the "spiritual free love" practice is drawn. It has been a most fruitful source of evil, fana'i.-ism, bigotry and persecution from the earlier ages of the world. And, mark you, Mr. E litor, what a nose of teax this Invisible region is how easily any fa natic may draw ai'TiioniTt from it for any a t he wili feo commit! The Mormon elders tell the Mormon maidens, "There arc multitudes of spirits waiting to take mortal bodies in you, and the poor spirits n a unhappy until yon become a mother!" So t!i? Sniritna.ist, (case reported in the Daily Herald of January 10, under the h a I of "Free Love and Tar and Feaik tra, ) says to a m s lium, "you must be my wife, beeause I have ha 1 a revelation that the spirit of my defease 1 spouse ha come bock aud taken possession of your body! ' L?t it be inscribed upon the broad heav ens in letters of living fire, that all the authority for "spiritual free love," Mor mon nrdvwnmv. and ihe worst form of 1a- naticism" is drawn from the dart, un- kwnen, inoitHAe, imafi'mnry irorld' Of course, no "civil institution' could rojognie such authority's mow than they coulU summ..; spirits to testily m courts ot justice, tiencc mormons may well say. that polygamy is not t(T be al- 1..W ..I ,;,.! of At ,bnr,h Una -h., . farce to call such practices "a sacred re- ligions institution," to which the Mormons only "are to be admitted!" Finally, I con dude that Spiritualism' and Morm onisra will, on the whole, sub- ( serve some goo 1 purpose in this way they et men to thinking, and show, by many sal examples, the dangers and evils in ta king revelations from the iniUihb icorld, as authority tor our actions.

At that time, and in- j deed for some years previous, during which the eastern part of the Y abash and Erie Canal was in the course of construction, no difficulty was experienced in the sale of of State Bonds on favorable terms; and for a a short time the public works were vigor ously prosecuted, the large amount of mo ney disbursed giving a rapid impetus to every species ol enterprise. In loo a re vr.lsion took place, which put a stop to the tp .-illation in real estate, prevented the further sale of State Bonds, suspended op- erationi on the public works, caused sus- pnesion of spe.de payments by the banks, and produced general embarrassment, not in Indiana only, but, to a greater or less extent, in every part of the Union. At that time no facilities existe I in Indiana for the transportation of produce to market except by wagons, over difficult roads and of course it commanded a low price at the place of its production.

Suppose a stalk have two or more ears, why not re-, move all the largest, when partly grown, and thus cause the remaining ear to become more perfect for seed corn? We have nev er tried this system, and may be wrong, but we suggest it to avail of the views of others. Seed corn, when selected, should I never be kept in close barrels or bins, but should bo hung up by the husks, which may be stripped and plaited together. Th Working Farmer. The Ho? Cholera. From the following communication it will be seen that this disease is in Vigo county. Its ravages in this county still continue latai. One person, yesterday. : informed us of three lots, having from twenty to twenty-eight hogs in each lot, all of which died, in the vicinity of this city, and another person, of another lot of about one hundred, nearly all of which arc dead.

Xot long since, a correspondent of the Bos- j ton Traveler, writing from Assyria, stated that M. Place and 6ome other French sa vans had discovered tho remain of Mm j Tower of Babel. This took the newspaper world bv surprise, and -rave oecasinn for j some very fins writing and some learned remarks. But the editor of the Buffalo ! Advertiser, in a fit of wanton malice, has ' spoiled the whole story at a blow, and ; sunk the famous Tower again bevond hope oi resurrection. ine tollowmg ejctract from that paper is a specimen of the malice j prepense with which a good story has been ; spoiled: As the Bible omits to tell how high th- ambitious builders carried that celebrated Tower before their tongues were confused. the rcligous will be duly grateful to Mr Place and his companions for tho infor- mation that they had completed "eight sto- rics" ol the gigantic structure. This ex cites suspicion, not only because thc Bible narration seems to convey the impression that they were confounded at an early stage of the undertaking, the obi ?ct being to pre vent their building a very tall structure, bnt secret was found out. But we are even more astonished to learn how perfectly those proud old build ers baffled the Almighty. The two storks of Babel that remain arc visible on the plain, we are told, at a distance of sixty miles. By a mathematical calculation we have ascertained that an object tobe visible sixty miles away, on the level ocean, mnst be 2400 feet in height! As these two sto ries are only one fourth of the whole height to which the Tower of Babel was carried it is easy to calculate that when the undertaking was broken off, those old build ers had carried, thoir Tower to a height of nearly two miUs. aaf. .
