Brigham Young, ««'• ®f 1 *Bh*
This remarkable man, who to compare
things with great, may remind many ot
Cromwell, was, at last accounts, making an ex
hibition ol himself in diveis addresses to his
taithtui followers, in one of his discourses at
the tabernacle, he instructs his brethren in this
4411 y0u wish to know what you must do here
after,'l will tell you in a few words; keep your
powder ami lead*, and your guns in good o der.
Ho about your wo«k, plow your fields, work in
your mechanic shops, and Ue ready at the
morning, at noon, or in the night, that whenev
er you are called upon, you can put your
hand upon your musket ami ammunition at the
shortest notice, "lie ye also ready, lor in an
hour you think not. bebo d the thief comes,"
and take- away your horse from the >table.
How many complaints have been made to
me by men who have had their horse- stolen
ou» of their stables, or out or their corals, or of
clothes being taken trom the line? Thereupon
why people lose their pioperty is because they
do not watch it. Have l ever complained ot
any such thing? No! ^ hs ■ Became l watch
mu coral. Do l lose anvihing out ol my barn.
No! Because l lock it up and keep some
body thereto watch it. Do I lose any clothing.
Not that I know of. I tell my folks not to
leave out their c othrng. hy,” they ask, *lis
there any danger of their being stolen? it •**
none of your business; they will not dry after
dark, theietore take them in, and hang them
out again in the morning. I hat is the way to
live: and that is what 1 wish to sav to sou con
cerning these matters, that your minds might
be al peace. All will be peace this summer if
vou kerw on watch ng. , . f ,
kkliyou want 10 know what to «-o with a thief
that you may find steal'ng, 1 suy. kill /union
the spot, ami never sutfe' him if> commit nil
other iniquity. That is what 1 expect I >haN
do, though never, in the days of my life, have
1 hurt a man with the palm of my hand- 1
never have hurt any person any other way ex
cept with this unruly member, my tongue —
Notwithstanding th;s. if I caught a man stea -
ing on my premise-, l should be very apt to ,
seed him straight home, and that is what 1
wi.-h every man to do. to put a stop to that
abominable practice in the midst of this peo

The(iiiuese in California.
A San Francisco letter ol July 1st, publish*

l»A suit is new pending in one of our Courts,

sum of money deposited bv them in the hands *
of the defendant forsi’e keeping, fie holding

There are no le-s than seven thousand names
