It is a well established fact that the moral and intellectual status of a nation, is indica ted by the position and influence assigned to its women 5 but it is only since the full and benign rays of the Sun € of Righteousness have shone forth upon the world, that the mission and influence of woman have been clearly de fined. The sanctity of the marriage relation ; the ennobling influence of a Christian woman —her sabred duties and rich rewards have been clearly set forth in the teachings of Christ and his Apostles ; and yet, in the f aee of these teachings, and in the light of the civilization of the nineteenth tentury, the '■Latter Day Saints ?''of Utah, have instituted the heathen and horrible practice of Poljg amy. In the center of a Republic, we have set up a Theocratic Monarchy, arrogating to itself ail power both human and divine. In a free Republio we have an Absolute Des potism binding both the souls and bodies of its subjects. One man sits enthroned, and as "Head of the church,'■ "Prophet, Seer and Revelator," rules his subjects with despotic power, and as Govenrr of the quasi State of Deseret,entirely disregards and overrides the laws of his coun try, and casts insult and contumely on those appointed to administer them. The mouth piece of the Almighty.—his word is law to iiis deluded followers, and hi3 anathema ia- re garded as the worst of evils. This i& the man, who, among all his other viilaiaotts schemes, has put in operation a system which degrades woman to the heathen standard— induces suffering equal to the inquisition t rolls back the tide of civlization foe centu ries, and educes a state of society, containing all the essential elements of barbarism. To. add to the enormity of the system, he covers it with the mantle of religion and blasphe mously proclaims its principles in the "Name of Jesus Christ." Following in the footsteps of Mohammed, Brigham Young declares that women are not responsible beings; that a woman to be saved must be "sealed" to some good man who has the Priesthood; he will save her, and if she does as she is told, her sins wiil be on her husband's head. Woman is created expressly for the glory and exaltation of man; hence, the more wo men and children a man has, the greater will be his "exaltation" in the " eternal worlds." Said Brigham, Sep. 20th, 1856 ; "It is the duty of every righteous man and woman to prepare tabernacles for all the spirits they can ; hence, if my women leave me, I will go and search np others who will abide the 'Ce lestial Law." The object of marriage, is sim ply to add to their kingdoms and glory in the "Celestial worlds," and any exhibition of affection in the family relations, is regarded by the authorities of "the church" as squeam ishness, and promptly discountenanced. Wives are to he regarded as any other property, and held subject to the will of the Prophet, ready to be sacrificed for the good of "the church," if occasion require. Said Brigham one Sunday afternoon ; "A man must value his wife no more than anything eUe he has got committed to him, and be ready tQ give her up at any time the Lord calls him." J. D* Grant, then one of the First Presiding, (since deceased), arose and said, "If God; through his Prophet, wants to give my women to any . more worthy man than l am, then they are on the altar of sac rifice ; he can have them and do what he pleases with them." He had five very pret ty women, one of whom said to me, in the a ly of of <6 $u & , R ° O K„ C AR D; AN D JOB Printing CW^ eK Eaet,lR¥,,ld«b*> City. : TofI^Tfq?t° ra !? r ' g l ? a « Tcto wnQWCft the rcopl* A of Idaho City and vicinity, that they lava, a vai led •And complete assortment of ^ PLAIN nnd JOB AND CARD TYPES, which make their facilitiesJbr executing all kinds.a."

JOB WORK MUST BE PAID FOB ON QBHWERY utmost simplicity, " We are all the of one man." Few privileges are allowed.the Women «t Salt Ljtke, particularly, those of the harem*-, I*. is rar,e to see a. woman onjt riding, either on horse-baak or, in.a carriage.. Brigham's motto is, "no. daoaas in. the hive," accordingly every woman is ex-pecled to support herself and assist, at least, in rjij -l porting her own children. Many dp more, and the two or three wives of one man, are frequently seen at work in the field or garden, while their lord and master reclipps at, hi* ease. Many of the harems are surrounded by walls £uom eight to ten feet in bight, while the j.eaLoosy and tyranny of the master effectual-, ly debar th.e inmates from the society of the outward world. Many, however, break over these restraints, and cases of infidelity are namesous. Women may be "sealed." to one man for time;, that is, married, aaid to another for eternity, or they may be sealed to- the same man both for time and eternity. If a young woman is engaged to be married to a man and he dies before the ceremony performed, she can still be.'f.sealed ":to bini_ for eternity, if any good brother will act as" proxy. , The children of such a marriage will belong to the deAd or spiritual husband, or; In ath:et words tA the man who died before bo was unu-Tied,: Such, wives are regarded as meye secqtj(J^ry affairs,, a ad are a good deal abused, hot(i by the husband and the other wives. They are put off in onp corner qf the house.-they and their children rationed, and only visited by the husband semi-o.ccasion.al ly. ()n one occasion such a one, with whose sad history I happen to be familiar, said to iler husband that the other " women " were whipping and abusing her children and de priving her ol every little comfort. He re plied t "Susau, you know you are only my wife lor time, and your children belong to another; you will add nothing to my ex<ai tion hereafter ; it was op.ly to accommodate Bro. Kimbull that l " took " you, so you must get along as well as you can, and don't let me hear you complain any more." Wonaeu at Salt Lake are allonved one priv~ ilege not usually accorded to the sex ; that is, the free choice of a husband, or au undivided fraction ot on«. If a " respectable u woman wishes to marry a man, he is not at liberty refuse. The matter being rather a delicate one for a lady to manage, it is usually entrust ed to one of the "heads." The Allowing is a case in point and entire ly reliable: Bro. Heber, 2nd President, better knoira at Snlt Lake ns Brigham's echo, in quite an adept in such businsss. Meeting Bro. T. q^e dav he said : "Bro. T-, are ypu doing well?" f Reply : " Yes, sir." Then ypu do well for the church too. ' How manv have you ?*« "-Two, sir." " That is not enough. You must take a.eoaple more. I'll send them to you. Do you hear?"' Reply: "Yes, sir." On the following evening when the brother returned home, he found too women sitting there. His first wife said : 'Ladies, this-is Bro. T. (all the women call 'heir husbands Buother,)'these are the " sia ers " Pratt. They were two widows of P. P. Pratt.), One of the ladies, Sarah, then said ; ' ft Ri-o. T., Brother Kimball told os to call op you, and yo,u know what for." "Yes, Ladies, ' replied Brother T,, " but it as a very hard task for me to marry two,.' 1 The other remarked: "Rro.. Kimball told us you were doing a very good business, and could, sup port more women." Sarah again took up the conversation, and enunciated the following proposition : M Well, Bro. T., I want to get married any how." The good brother replied, Well, ladies, 1 will see what I can d.o and let yo,u know," whereupon tb.e ladies afore said retired. Through the influence of his said retired. Through the influence of his Bishop, Bj-o. T, Anally compromised the mat ter apd married Sarah, it being ascertained that Bro.. Kimball wanted the house Sarah lived in, for the residence of his- daughter, who was soon to be married to a son of Par ley P. Pratt, . ,j; While we find some women willing to do anything which is '"counseled by the au thorities," however much it may outrage their sense of propriety, we find very many who would rather dieithan submit to such humil iation. As in all religious delusions, so in Mormonism, there are many noble souls, who have been grossly deceived and led, step by step, until they have sunk to the moral level of their deceivers. There are at Salt J^ake many noble women, who despise polygamy, and deplore its terrible effects—many who can exclaim, in the language of the Apostle Paul, " J die daily." Some are on tb* verge of insanity, others endure d&iij torture in the fear that their husbands will take more wives ; many suffer in silence and " Sit like Patience on a monument Smiling at Grief." Many believe in " plurality," as they term it. us a means of Salvation and exaltation inn. future state, aad expect to be made perfect through suffering, but I have never yet beard a woman say that she was happy in polyga my. The suffering and down-trodden women of Utah call for our warmest sympathy, our deepest pity. Deluded, no doubt, but as I believe sincere in their delusion, martyrs to their ideas of truth and duty, following blind ly and aoalously tbe infamous scoundrel wbp oaving arrogated to himself the prerogatives of the Almighty, works upon the religious element in woman's nature for her destruc tion, these Mormon women present a picture of heroic- devo'ion and sublime endurance rarely equalled in the world's history.
