Tbacy Robikson, in Harpers Maga zine for April THE ORDER OF ENOCH BIMGIIAM YOUNG'S GREAT CONFIDENCE SWINDLE. The Prophet Spoiling his People The Order Established iu the Country Districts On lyNo Attempt Yet 3Iade in Salt Lake. Salt Lake Chy. Ma th 30. Some mention has been made of the new Order of Enoch which Britiham Young is endeavoring to introduce among his saints. The subject, how ever, ha -not received that attention iu the East W hich it merits, foretell ing, ns it docs, to the minds of all in telligent persons in this territory, the downfall of Mormonism. The attempt to establish the order is, indeed, the first confession of weakness which Brigham Young has made for many years. He sees and hears, ns perhaps no man else can see and hear, and polygamy in Utah is in its death throes, and with the corner-stone of Mormonism pone, the edifice itself must surely fall. What remains then, but for the old man prudent to gather in what he can for the remnant of his goods, and take his departure to hap pier climes, where the Gentiles shall cease from troubling, and he may die at peace? Many things have conspired to seal the fnte of Mormonisni. First and foremost perhaps is the settled an tipathy of the nation to the practice of jmlygamy. The miseries which are its legitimate fruits, have beeu brought home to every intelligent reader throughout the land by newspapers and books. Then again the religion of the Prophet is based solely upon thr ignorance of his followers. To pre serve its power, it was necessary t j keep them still ignorant. lue gentile must be kept from the flock. But the Gentile has pushed his way in, and the time has passed by whec a murder or two judiciously executed served to preserve the purity of the fold. The Gentile has brought knowledge with him that terrible, tite of evil and inany saints have eaten thereof, and their eyes I a e ibaen ope.ied. The ground 'is fairly trembling under the Prophet's feet, and he knows not at what hour at what minute the chasm may be opened and the Church of Latter Day Saints engulfed. Under these circumstances, true to his ancient faith iu the efficacy of worldly comforts, Brighanj naturally turns about to see how he may prepare himself to meet the coming blow. HiR kingdom is crumbling and his sceptre is passing away ; but'it may still be permitted the old man to die in the midst of plenty. His declining years may still be sweetened by the enloy ment of the good things of life. Per haps by some other great Salt Lake and in some other garden spot of this great continent he may pitch his tent and gather around him a new band of saints. Thousands of his followers scattered about in the fertile fields of this lovely valley still cling to him and revere him as an emissary of the most high God. It is still left him to speculate upon their weakness for his own profit, and accordi ugly the Proph et proceeds to speculate. This ia how he does it : Towards the end of Feb ruary the President Prophet held two meetings of the faithful at St. George, and there he first proposed to them the new departure which the saints were to make for the sake of the Churc'i. According to the Bible Enoch was taken up to heaven with out that prelimiuiuary passage through the dark vale which ordinary mortals are forced to make. The prophet. goes further than the Bible, and as sures his people that not only Enoch but the "City of Enoch" entire was thus taken up to God. This, Brigham assures the saints, was an especial fa vor granted to the Eijochites because of their superabundance of godliness. The phrase would somewhat obscure but for the explanation which the Prophet kindly -jives to his people. The first step, according to this high authority, toward attaining to the godliness of Enofh is too deed all their property in trust to the trustee of the Church of Christ of Latter Day Saints. When they have thus impoverished themselves they are appointed stew ards of the Church (i.e., Brigham Young), and are members of the Or der of Enoch. This stewardship, as expounded by Brigham, is in itself peculiar. The saint is appointed to ex ercise hla jurisdiction whither the Church dictates. He may be ap pointed to cultivate his own farm or he may be established on his neigh bor's. Of the fruits of his labor he i held to a strict accountability. The profits belong not to him but to the Church of the Latter Day Saints. In short, he becomes simply a steward perhaps servant would be the better word to the Prophet, to whom he has turned over not only all right to his worldly possessions but the right to be master of his own actions. Where they shall live, what they shall do, and how they shall do It i decided en tirely by the Mormon priests; and k TENNESSEE TUESDAY APRIL 14, thus relieved trom all worldly cares the Enochite will have a single beait to give to the Charch, and at some fu ture day may hope to take a trip to heaven by the easterly current. The effect of this Order of Enoch upon the oor dupes who bow the knee to Brigham Young can be easily comprehended. The man of property gives up his all to begin with, and re nounces his right to acquire iu the fu ture. The man who owns nothing contributes the fruits of his labor, and should he leave the order twenty years from now he must do it without a cent which he can call his own. Iu the constitution of this Order of Enoch a provision was made apparent ly in good faith for the well-being of the members. No money was to be ta ken from the treasury, unless by the common voice and consent of the order Brigham also introduces iu his order this clause. And thli ihall be common roiee and consent of th order : that any man among you ay onto the treas urer. "1 hae ned of this to help me in my stew ardship ;" if It be eve telent. or if it be ten tal ents, or twenty talents, or flfty, or a hundred, the treasurers hall jjir. unto bim tliotara which b' require to help him in his Ktewardship, and to long a be i in fall fellowship, a.id ia faith ful, the treasurer shall hot withhold, This all looks very fair, and is suc ceeding admirably in gulliug the more credulous of the faithful. But does any one who knows Brigham Young believe that one penny upon which he gets his grasp will ever leave it? This whole scheme ia very transparent to those in whom bliud devotion ha9 not blinded the action of common sense. The Prophet inaugurated his proceed ings iu this matter far up in the coun try, where the reigu of ignorance iu perpetual. He well knew that here, where 6ome little knowledge exists among his own people, and where the detested Gentile is protected in free dom of speech by United States mus kets, his litte scheme would not work well. It is doubtful if he will attempt to Enochise the saints here. If he does, it will not be until he has provided balloons for all the country people in his dorniuions. Then, when he has amassed the wealth of which he is sure iu that regiou, he may make some show of establishing the order in Salt Lake if indeed he be uot before that time a fugitive from the territory. All through the country the people are becoming Enochized. It is aston ishing how these poor simple people flock around the venders of hcaveniv balloons Ar. Y. World. THE KOYAL MAKIJIAGE.

From the liiclimoi.d Enqnirer of 7th. "The Blind Preaeher." Never were we so impressed, or rath er, we should sav. never before did we so fully realize William Wirt's well- known splendid description of the 'Blind Preacher'' as on Sunday eve ning last at the Centenary church while listening to the eloquent dis course of the Rev. Mr. Milburn, the "Blind Preacher" of our time. All the evening we caught our fancy cheating us into the delusion that we were attending a' rehearsal of Wirt's prose poem, ami in spite of ourselves our thoughts would continually repeat the refrain: "Socrates died like a Philosopher; but Jesus Christ like a God." The infirmity of the preacher deeply impressed us. His slow and deliberate manner in approaching the pulpit, those sightless eyeballs, vacant and expressionless, with the fixed gaze into vacancy, excited our warmest, sympathy; and the liveliest interest was awakened ere he had even spo ken, when we looked around upon the vast congregation of iutcllisenl ind re fined ladies and gentlemen who thronged the church 10 overflowing, to think that all was a dreary waste of darkness before him, and that his only consciousness of the presence of the vast multitude was from the subdued tramp of feet and rustle of garments. Then he opened his mouth aud spoke ; and his voice, at first low aud sweet, modulated to a modest and subdued measure as be gavo fourth the number and page of a well known hymn, sud denly rose to full round tones, when he lined it forth in a burst of deepest pathos and tenderest expression, so harmonious with our sympathies for his sightless sorrows. The lesson of the evening was Paul s matchless den nition of charity ; and this, too, was feelingly and correctly read ; and then, after a praver, his text was taken In "Ecclesiastes." The sermon was a powerful and beautiful discourse ou the vanities of human J ife full of gor geous imagery, of realistic illustiations, and apt application of his theme, which, while captivating the senses by their beauty; carried conviction to the mind by their force and truthfulness Warming with this subject, he grew in earnestness until lie seemed to com imine with the angels that were dis closed to the vision of his mind aud pour forth his very soul in the rapture . . a ot ins eloquence; ana asne reacneu the climax of bis peroation ana ciosea with a grand antithetical illustration of the vanities of this world contrasted with the substantial rewards prepared for the just made perfect in the world to come, how our thoughts reverted to that "Blind Preacher" of the past, the favorite of our school-boy days, and how we coveted the genius and graces of a Wirt that we, too, might immortalize the hero of this hour and eternize his theme. But, though there may be many "blind preachers," there is but one V irt. and meditating upon the scene ns we left the church, in stinctively we found our heart re-echo ing his grand refrain, "Socrates died like a philosopher; but Jesus Christ like a God 1" Suppliant South Carolina.

He said that whenever he tried to do anything for the South some busybody in that part of the country would forthwith mail him a scrap of news paper telling what somebody or other at the South had said about him. He was beginning to think that it would be a good thins; for the country if three or four of the Uerublican editors of the Soth were ban:od.

It was a strange spectacle, these once haughty but now humbled citi zens of a State of heroic history coming as petitioners and almost as suppliants to the President of the Laited States, as supplicants were a; customed to approach the throne ol an ancient king, and asking for deliverance from the barbae despotism of their former slaves. It was a scene that might well have r kindled w hatever emotions of fraternal feel, ing still exist in the breasts of the conquerors for their conquered coun trymen. It was one, too, in which the ma;i who stands pre-eminent among the conquerors, and whose sword more than any other dealt the decisive blow of subjugation , might have been expected to forget himself in a manly sympathy for his van quished victims.
