The Cbroniole claims to have discov ered a moat odorous mare's nest in the circumstances of a recent sale of fine silver made to the Mint by the Nevada Bank. That journal haa worked op the case with its usual perspioacity, and this morning boldly charges that the Bank having been "oaught out" in a ailver speculation in London, was compelled to seek relief from Dr. Linderman, whom it incidentally mentions as the bonanza men's serviceable agent. This relief came in the purchase by Linderman, of 1.000,000 ounces of silver at a rate so far above tbe market as to demand seoresy from an outraged public. Unhappily for our contemporary's sensation, tbe truth was simultaneously published by another journal. Tbe so-called sale of 1.000,000 ounces, dwindles down to 300,000 ounoes nd tbe terms were withheld only by tbe Bank. Tbe Mint officials make no secret whatever of tbe fact that tbe price paid was $1.22 per ouooe-tbe New York rate on tbe day of sale.

JOHN D. LEE'S CONFES SION, MADE AFTER SENTENCE OF DEATH BAD BEEN PASSED UPON HIM TO BIS ATTORNEY, W. IV. BISHOP, ESO,., OF PIOCHE. The "Mountain Meadow Massacre," at Mountain Meadows, Washing ten County, Utah Territory, September 16th, 1837, Brlgham Young, JohnD. Lee, Iaaae C. Batfrht, Colonel Dame nd John M. Higbee. Monument, Mountain Meadows, Utab, March 23. 12 p. m. At 45 seconds to 11 A. lit. preoisely Lee was brought out before tbe exeouting party, seated on his ooffin, about twenty feet from the shoot ers. After the order of tbe Court was read to him and tbe party present by Marshal Nelson, Lee made a speech of about COO words, bitterly denouncing Brigham Young, and oalling himself a soapegoat for the sins of others, and he hoped God would be merciful, Lee de nied that he was guilty of bloodshed to tbe last, and maintained that his mission to the Meadows was one of meroy. Af ter Lee's Bpeecb, Parson Stokes, Metho dist, made a prayer commending the soul of the condemned man to God. Immediately after this tbe handkerchief was placed over Lee's eyes. He raised his hands, placed them on top of his head, sitting firm. Nelson gave tbe word "fire!" and exaotly at 11 o'clook five gnus were fired, the ballets penetrating tbe body in tbe region of tbe heart. Lee fell sqaare baok upon the ooffln dead. Death was instantaneous, The body was placed in tbe coffin and tbe crowd dis persed. There were about seventy-five persons, all told, on tbe ground, and not a child or relative of Lee's was there. The best order prevailed, and all pro nounoed the exeoution a success. Lee's last words to Nelson were: "Aim at ray heart." The body is now passing to be given to relatives at Cedar City. Mountain Meadows, Utah, March 23. After Marshal Nelson concluded read ing tbe order of tbe Court at 10:31 a, m., he asked Lee if he had anything to say before tbe execution was oarried into effect. Lee said: "I wish to speak to that man," pointing to Mr. Fenneinore, who was fixing bis canvas near by to take bis photograph before the shooting. Fennemore replied, "In a seoond, Mr. Lee." Lee waited until tbe artist as sented bis readiness to listen. Lee said : "I want to ask yoa a favor. I want yoa to furnish my three wives each a copy of my photograph, (meaning tbe one being taken) a copy of tbe rame to Baobel A., Sarah C., and Emma B." (Mr. Howard responded for tbe artist.) "He says he will do it, Mr. Lee." Lee repeated the names over again oarefully saying, "Please forward them." He then arose and said : UK's SPKXCM. "I have little to say this morning. Of oonrse, I feel that I am upon tbe brink of eternity, and tbe solemnities of etern ity should rest upon my mind at tbe present. I have made out, or endeav ored to do so, a manuscript and an abridged history of my life that le to be published, Sir, I have given my views and. feelings with regard to all these things. I feel resigned to my fate. I feel as calm as a Summer morning, and have done nothing adversely wrong. My conscience is clear before God and man, and I am ready to meet my Be deenier; tbia it is that plaoes me npon Ibis field. I am not an Infidel, I have not denied God or bis metcy, I am a strong believer In those things. Tbe most that I regret is parting with my family. Many of them are unprotected and will be left fatherless. When I speak of those little ones they touch a tender chord within me. (Here Lee's voioe faltered perceptibly.) I have done nothing designedly wrong in this affair. I used my almost endeavors to save this people; I wonld have given worlds were It at my ooinmand to have avoided that calamity, but I could not. I am saorifioed to satisfy feelings, and am used to gratify parties, but I am ready to die. I have no fear; death has no terrors, and no particle of meroy have I aaked of Court or offloials to spare my Hie. I do not (ear death. I shall never go to a worse plsoe than the one I am now in. I have said It to my family and I will lay it to-day, that tbe Government of the United States sacrifices their best friend, and tbat is saying a great deal, bat it is true. I am a true believer in tbe Gospel of Jesus Christ; I do not be lieve everything tbat now is practiced and taught by Brigbam Young; I do not agree with bim;I believe be is leading tbe people astray, but I believe ia the Goepel as was taugbt in its parity by Joseph Smith, in former days, I have my reasons for saying this; I was u-ed to make this muu's will my pleasure, and did so for thirty years. See bow and wbat I have come to tbia day. I have been sacrificed in a cowardly, das tardly manner. There are thousands of people in the Church honorable and gcod-faearted, that I cherish in my heart. I regret to leave my family; tbey are near and dear to me. These are things to rouse my sympathy. I declare I did nothing wrong designedly in this un fortunate affair. I did everything in my power to save all the emigrants, bnt I am tbe one that muBt suffer, and having said thin, I feel resigned. I ask tbe Lord my God to extend bis meroy to me and receive my spirit. My labors are here done." The following abstract of tbe confes sion has been furnished to us by the kindness of Mr. Bishop. It may be re lied upon as correct, as it bas been cop ied from tbe original confession now ia the possession of W. W, Bishop. CONFESSION. ' As a duty that I owe myself and niau kind at large, I propose to give a full and true statement of all tbat I know and of all that I did in that unfortunate affair known as the "Mountain Meadow Massacre." I have no vindiotive feel ing against anyone, no enemies to pun ish by this statement, no friends to shield by keeping back any of tbe aots performed at that time or place. Those who participated in tbat transaction as my accomplices were acting under orders from their Church Leaders, wbich or ders tbey believed their religious duty to unquestioningly obey. I bave never doubted tbat they acted from a sense of tbeir duty to the Cburcb, therefore, I have never exposed tbem from tbat day to this. It bas been my intention to die, if die I must, without giving a word or making a statement tbat could harm any of my former associates, but at the re quest of a few remaining friends, and with the consent of my counsel, wbo bas defended me thus far notwithstanding my want of money to pay for bis scr vices, I feel it a duty to bim as well as to others to explain tbat which has so long been shrouded in mystery. I can not go before tbe Judge of tbe Quick and he Dead without revealing all I know as to what was done and tbe motives that led to tbe commission of that bloody deed. Tbe Mountain Meadow Massaore was the result of the direct teachings of Brigham Young and those direot in authority in tbe Mormon Church. Tbe Immediate orders tor killing tbe emi grants came from Isaao C. Haight, Presi dent of that stake of Ziou at Cedar City, and ' Lieutenant-Colonel of tbe Iron Militia, and be told me tbut be received his orders from Win. H. Dame, Bishop of tbe Choroh at Parowan, and Colonel of tbe Iron Military Distriot and Com mander of the Mormon foioes in South ern Utah. Utah was tben vnder martial law, and at war with the United States I and those who acted with me at tbe Mountain Meadows, acted by virtue of positive orders from Isaac C. Haigbt and bis associates in authority at Cedar City. I had been on aotive worker in tbe Mor mon Cbarob for twenty-one years, hav ing jcined that Cburob at Fair West. Missouri, in tbe early days of Mormon- ism, I acoumpanied tbe Cburoh in all its wanderings, from too time it was driven from Jefferson county, Missouri, during all its trials at Nauvoo, Illinois, its perilous raarob across the plains to Salt Lake and during its efforts to re olaim Utah from tbe savage. Very little was done in or for tbe Church unless I was consulted. I was one of the first that-waa initiated into tbe order of Da nitea. I was early aud thoroughly in structed in all of the secret mysteries of Mormonism. I wa among tbe first oat side of tbe Twelve Apostles, who was in formed of the doctrines of polygamy, I believed and accepted tbe dootrinea as true, and I have been sealed to eighteen women, aoaordiog to tbe forms of tbe Cburcb; two of them were sisters of my first wife, and one was the mother of these three wives; I was sealed to her for the Eternal State, for her soul's sal vation. I have held many important of floes in the Territorial Goveromsnl and stood high in tbe Priesthood. On ao count of my long servioe in tbo Churoh I was considered a safe repository for Its most dangerous seorets, I was therefore selected as a fit person to carry oat tbs orders of the Church so as to destroy Its enemies and tbrow tbe blutne on tbe In diana. Early in September, 1857, a train of emigrants, known as Fanober's train, or tbe Arkansas train, were pass ing through Utah on their way to South ern California. At Salt Like City tbey had trouble, with the authorities and were forced to leave Salt Lake City. Every person belonging to tbe Mormon Church was forbidden to sell them pro visions or assist tbem id any way, as tbey were considered the deadly enemies of the Church. This feeling was strength ened by tbe faot that some of tbe emi grants claimed to bave been participants in the murder of-the prophets at the Carthage Jail. When tbe emigrants ar rived at Cedar City tbey bad violated some of tbe City ordinances and defied the Mormon authorities. This gave Haight and his associate leaders of tbe Mormon Choroh a pretext for destroying the entire train. Tbe subject was brought up in tbe Council at Cedar City, and after full discussion for aud against the murder, it was decided that tbe In dians should be placed upon the war path and given sufficient arms and pro visions by tbe whites to enable them to destroy our enemies, as we then called all Gentiles or opposers of the Mormon religion. I went to Cedar City on tbe 7th of September. On Sunday evening I was met on the edge of the town by Isaao C. Haight. His word was law to all people in that locality; to disobey bis orders was certain death. He said he wanted a long talk with me. Vfe took some blankets and went to the old iron works and slept there that night, so we could talk in private. He told me all about the emigrants, wbat orders be bad received from Dame and others in au tbority, tbe decision of tbe Council, bow tbe emigrants were to be killed, and the reasons of tbe Church authorities for this BCtion. I then believed that Haight spoke with an inspired tongue; all that be said I believed was true. I asked Haigbt what authority we had for the massacre? He said "it is the will of all in authority. Tbey have no pass from any one and are all liable to be billed as common enemies for the country is in war dow and no one has a right to go through Utah without a pass from Brig bam Young, Col. Dame or myself." He tben gave me full instructions. I had to obey or die. I bad no wish to disobey for I then believed my superiors to be the mouth-piecos of tbe God of Heaven. My orders were to go home to Harmony, Btir up tbe Indians around there, put them on the war-patb, sent Carl Shirts to tbe Southern settlements and outlying Indian tribes, and bring tbem nil at once against the emigrants. I was to have general control of tbe In dians, but tbe Indians were to do all tbe killing, bo tbe Mormons oonld not be blamed for it. He said this bad been agreed upon in council and was the wish of tbe entire people. I asked bim if we had not better send word to Brigbam Young. He said: "No, we are acting by orders. Tbe Northern Indians are now on tbe war-path following the train, and not one of tbe crowd can escape. We will call it an Indian massacre and do white man Bball be known in tbe matter. There is do danger of shedding inuooent blood if tbe whole damned paok are killed, for they are tbe worst lot of rut fiaus and outlaws tbat over visited Utah." Monday morning I started home to carry out my orders, and on my way I passed several bands of Indians following tbe emigrants. I promised to go with tbem next day. Tuesday morning, about day light, about three hundred Indians at tacked tbe train where it was camped at Mountain Meadows. Tbey succeeded in killing seven men and wounding six teen more of tbe emigrants. One Indian was killed and many wounded; some of them afterwards died. An Indian run ner reached my house early Tuesday morning and told me of the battle and repulse of tbe Indians, and demanded my immediate presenoe on the .field. I crossed the mountains and reached tbe Meadows about noon. The emigrants' cattle, about four hundred or five hun dred, were toattered over the Meadows, and the Indians bad already killed about seventy bead of thim. Tbe emigrants' camp was about one hundred yards from tbe spring. They had corralled tbeir wagons in a oircle, chained tbe wheels together, and dug a rifle pit in tbe cen ter of tbe oorral large enough to hold and prottot the entire company from the oonstant fire which tbe Indians kept op both night and day against them. Tbe Indians demanded tbat I should lead them against the emigrants and seoure tbeir revenge for the death of tbeir "braves." I promised to go and bring other friends to their aid. I went about twelve miles south and met Carl Shirts returning with a large body of Indians and a number of Mormons from the Southern settlements. Bunners from Cedar City bad notified all tbe settlers in Southern Utah that tbe emigrants were to be killed. The whites oamped that night where I met tbem, whilst the In. dians rushed on to tbe Meadows and took part in tbe battle, whioh was eon-. Btantly going on. Wednesday I reached tbe Meadows in company with the bites and camped about balf a mile from tbe emigrants. Soon afterwards quit a body of men arrived from Cedcr City to take part in the work. I sent a runner to Haight for further instructions. Tbe instructions were brought back by John M. Higbee, Major of the Iron Militia, wbo then took command of tbe party on tbe field. The orders were to decoy tbe emigrants from tbeir strong hold, bave tbe Indians kill tbe women aud larger children, the Mormon troops to kill the men who were able to walk, tbe drivers of tbe wagons and myself to kill tbe sick and wounded, wbo were to be'placed in the wagons. Tbe orders ar rived on Thursday night. There were fifty-eight whites ou the ground. Many of tbem were leading men in tbe Cburcb. A meeting was called and speeches made by many ot them. Higby stated our orders as follows: "It is tbe order of the President tbat all tbe emigrant be put out or ine way. Haigbt has reoetved orders irom (Joloncl Dame tbut none wbo are able to talk shall bo spared. Tbey are our enemies and enemies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; tbey are tbe advanoe of Johnston's army; tbey must all die. A flag of truce will be sent to tbem in tbe morning; we will promise to save tbeir lives and lake tbem back to Cedar City. When they surrender, Brother Lee will take charge of loading the children, sick and wounded and tbe arms of tbe emi grants in wsgonB. Tbe wagons will take the lead, the women and larger children to follow in single file, men to follow fifty yards behind tbe women. Indians shall be placed in ambush in tbe cedars I (John M. Higbee.) will command tbe troops. Two men will be stationed on horseback to capture any who escape, One of our men will march by each emi grant on the right hand side, holding their guns across their left arm.' When tbe women reach the ambusb, the word will be given, "Do your duty!" The men will then shoot tbe emigrants, tbe Indians kill tbe women and children, and Brother Lee and tbe drivers will kill all in the wagons wbo are old enough to talk." Tbe bretbern were tben sworn te secresy, death to be the penalty for telling anything that occurred ou tbe field. We then knelt down in a circle and many prayers were offered for Divine guidance. Ou Friday the orders for the massacre were fully carried out. Tbe flag of truce was sent, the emigrants sur- rendered, and all of them but 17 Bmall ohildren were led out and killed, accord ing io programme, ine Doaies were stripped and left caked on tbe field un til tbe next day. Ou Saturday morning Haigbt, Dame and others arrived on tbe field. When they came to where tbe dead were lying Dime and Haigbt bad a quarrel. Dame said: "I shall report this." "How will you report it?" said Haigbt. "Just as it is," was the reply, "Yes, I suppose so, said Haight, "and implicate yourself with tbe rest." "No, I will cot implicate myself," said Dame, "for I bad nothing to do with it, Haight said: "Colonel Dame, you know a damned sight better; yoa ordered it done, and it is too late for yoa to back out now and prove a traitor to tbose who have carried out your orders. I will be damned if I will stand any foolishness about it. I have only oboyed orders and you know it." Dame was confused for a while and tben said: J'l did not think there were so many of them, or I would not have had anything to do with it. Haight said: "You ordered or ooanseled me to do it, and nowyou want to go back on it and lay it on those who obeyed your orders.' I will Mow you to hell before yoa shall lay it on me; yoa have got to stand what yoa did, God damn yoa.' More was said to the same effect, but I interfered and got the parties to make up with eaob other, The dead bodies were then gathered, thrown in a pile and covered with loose eartb; tbey num bered something over a hundred. The brethren were then oalled together, and speeches made by our leaders. We were all again sworn to seoresy, binding our selves under horrible penalties to remain silent until death concerning all tbat happened at Mountain Meadows. Some ten days after the massacre I was ordered by Isaao O. Haigbt to ge to Salt Lake and report the matter to Brigham Young. He promised me a Celestial reward for it if I was faithful. I reported the mat ter fully to Brigbam Young, giving bim the name of every person engaged, tell ing him fully what each one did and every faot oonneoted with the massacre as fully as I knew It myself. He ap peared to know all about the emigrant train and was not surprised at what I told bim. Alter I had finished my re port, be said : "This is tbe most unlor tunats affair tbat ever befell tbe Cburcb. I am afraid of treachery among the brethren who are there. If anyone tells this thing so as it beoomes publio it will work us great injury." He laid: "I t yon to distinctly understand nn. tbat you mu9t never tell this again, not even to Heber C. Kimball. When you SO nomeyou must write ms a letter giv- ing an account of it and charging it to Indians; you sign it as 'Farmer,' I direct to me as 'Indiun Asent.' T thi au can make use of that kind of letter in my report to the Government to keep off damaging inquiries." I afterwards wrote ib loiter tbat was introduced in evidence my trial, in obedience to the orders Brigham Young. Ha knew it van Ise as well as I did. I said : "FresirW 'oung, the people all felt, and I know I thought I was obeying orders and acting in strict conformity with our teaching. and tbs oaths tbat we bave taken to avenge tbe blood of tbe Prophets. Yon must sustain us or release us from tbe oaina or ouiigatioua we have taken." He ordered me to to return next day when be would give me bis report! When I went baok uext day he uaicl: -'I have made that a subjeot ol prayer.' I aBlied tbe Almighty to show me it was right. I bave positive evidence from God tbut the act was righteous and well intended. The brethren aoted from pure ubi Buamiu juu sdq iqb Dreturen in all you did.
