From the Boston Investigator.
Mr;. Euitqr: Thc challenge put forth
in voir last issue by the Mormon, Mr.
Bernard Snow, is hereby accepted. Mr.
"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

; Nothing can be more false than this. They

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
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
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
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

Now for a few words concerning "spir-
itnal wifery" among th2 Mormons. 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

L?t it be inscribed upon the broad heav

mon nrdvwnmv. and ihe worst form of 1a-

farce to call such practices "a sacred re-

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

of State Bonds, in the first place, for the

and when even kind of real estate was sought
after with avidity. 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

Wc extract from the report a suggestion

Thc Tower of Babel.
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

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.
