So suddenly was the fire brought upon the encampment, by a change of the wind, that head of cattle were burned to death or died very soon afterwards. The Indians were quiet all along the route. At Fort Laramie, the barracks for the accommodation of the troops were progressing with great rapidity, and began to assume a very handsome appearance.
A treaty of peace had been concluded between the Pawnees and the authorities at Fort Kearny, and the Indians had gone out on a hunt. The following Republican paragraphs were excluded in the Sanduskian's reprint: Pomeroy remained there some time, in the enjoyment of the confidence of the Mormons.
Wilson was not only not badly treated, but he was recognized as a Government officer, and was consulted as to the best plan of obtaining a political government for that territory.
Pomeroy, Infelt of St. Joseph, and Lee of Lexington, were to have left between the 10th and 15th of November, for California, taking the Southern route, in the expectation of being able to accomplish the journey by early spring, and without much exposure. It is represented as remarkably fertile, and the climate as being very fine.
About one hundred wagons were dispatched hither, with provisions and property, and from fifty to one hundred families had accompanied them. Cleveland, Ohio, Thursday, January 17, The New York Tribune gives the following notice of Bennett, and summary of the offence charged against him: The case of Drury, nothing of which has yet been legally developed, still lies like an incubus upon the public mind -- that of Joseph C.
Ashley is hardly less important -- when another bomb explodes at tbe Tombs, and the smoke clears away,we behold, to our utter astonishment the widely known Mormon General James Arlington Bennett, indicted by the grand jury for a heavy forgery.
This man was the proprietor of a fine estate and magnificent mansion, near New Utrecht" L. He is an Irishmnn of obscure birth, but had interjected "Arlington" between his original names, and assumed to be of noble blood. He was formerly a teacher of book-keeping in this city, but at the time of the Mormon exodus from this quarter, he took up his staff and turned his feet towards the New Canaan at Nauvoo. James Arlington Bennett remained sufficiently long among the Mormon community to prove his shrewdness, for he became a general.
He returned to this quarter in , or thereabouts, covered with his Mormon honors, and put up the mansion at New Utrecht. No one doubted his honesty, while the style of his living raised him above suspicion, by its evidence of the abundance of his means. His extravagant habits, however, soon disposed of his surplus funds; and he was forced to mortgage his property to supply his wants.
Sometime after this, however, Jas. Anthon, and offered to loan Bennett at the rate of 6 per cent. Bennett then left Anthon and gave a mortgage to Mr. Foster raised his interest to 7 per cent, whereupon Bennett threatened to leave him.
These loans, however; did not relieve Bennett, and it was while he was thus floundering in his pecuniary embarrassments that he fell in with Drury and Ashley, and became a party to many of their plans. Bennett, however, had an advantage over the other two. He lived in good, odor with the world, and none would have dreamed of looking underneath his princely style for the figure of a felon.
The circumstances of the suspicion and arrest are curious, and seem to be a sequence of the arrest of Drury for the torpedo business. In the course of the investigations which led to Bennett's arrest, developments were, made which point strongly toward a premeditated murder of Foster by some of the persons who are now in the hands of the law.
Athon on a mortgage of the premises; that to make Mr. Anthon believe the reconveyance to be all right. One Eyed Thompson personated Bennett's son, the latter being a minor and unable to make a legal transfer of the property on that account. Altogether this is one of the most intricate and important cases, in connection with the Drury and Ashley operations, that have ever claimed public attention.
See the Defiance Democrat of Feb. Reported for the Ohio Repository. All kinds of merchandize are high and scarce. There are only two small stores in the valley, which contains a population of 15, persons. The snow was on the mountains all around the valley, and at the South Pass it was 4 feet deep. They had a battle with another band of emigrants, subsequently. The grain crops had been good, and the country was prosperous. Defiance, Ohio, Saturday, February 2, The monetary notions of the Mormons at their Great Salt Lake settlement, are no less peculiar, it appears, than their ideas of society and religion.
We have a verious curious coin in our possession, which is manufactured and extensively circulated among that remarkable people, and quite to the disparagement, travelers tell us, of every other species of gold currency. Of all the fanciful forms into which our golden wealth is wrought, this sainted shape excells in singularity. Its weight is about 15 pwts.
Troy, its current worth, among the Mormons, twenty dollars. Its circumference is that of a Spanish half doubloon. One side bears the inscription 'Holiness to the Lord,' with the All-seeing Eye, surmounted by the prophet's cap; on the reverse appear the initials C. It is clumsy, and in execution without merit.
The precious metal intended for gold coinage requires the admixture of a small percentage of base metal, in order to give the soft gold some minimal durability. The Mormons, it is reported, were rather overgenerous with copper, etc. Cleveland, Ohio, Thursday, February 6, The New Orleans Delta publishes a letter from the Salt Lake, the capital of the Mormons of Deseret, in which the writer confirms the statement previously made, that under the Mormon narital law, a man may have as many wives as he can support.
This is not a large number, considering he had to take all the wives of Joe Smith that could not get other husbands. Some that have come under my observation have had eleven, five, three, two, one. These are facts, beyond cavil; and the only tie that binds these people together is bigamy.
See the Huron Reflector of March 19th for a more complete reprint. Defiance, Ohio, Saturday, February 9, James Arlington Bennett , formerly connected with the Mormons, has been arrested for forgery in New York. Several others are implicated. The morals of New York must be in a precious condition, as would appear from the following.
The New York Mirror, speaking of 'more astounding developments' of crime in that city, connected with recent arrests, says 'lawyers, merchants, and even clergymen' are suspected of being mixed up in 'business transactions' with these counterfeiters, thieves, and assassins; and there is no knowing where the lightning of justice will strike next. Bennet or Bennett was reportedly baptized by Brigham Young, on a beach of the Atlantic Ocean, during the mids.
Bennet later repudiated the event as a sort of joke upon Brigham. Bennet's baptism as an LDS came in Bennet was Smith's initial choice as a running mate in his ill-fated bid for the U. In the Quincy Whig said of Bennet: James Arlington Bennett,' is the brave and skillful officer he boasts, why does he not stay with his valiant friends, the Mormons, and control their actions?
His Generalship is all displayed on paper. The President of that interesting Republic is said to have thirty. Elder Pratt, from Boston, more moderate in his matrimonial notions has only seven, and even one of them has run away with a California soldier. As far back as the public press was accusing top Mormon leaders of practicing bigamy, adultery or polygamy, under the guise of "peculiar" religious teachings.
The Church officials denied these allegations prior to their leaving Nauvoo, and for several years thereafter. But, while on the trail west, and once settled at Salt Lake, the saintly leaders could not well hide their "patriarchal order of marriage" from prying Gentile eyes. The years must have been particularly embarrassing ones for truly honest Mormons, in that reports of LDS polygamy spread through the popular prints much faster than the "Lord's Anointed" in Deseret could issue sundry denials of their secret marital practice.
Eventually all of this "lying in the name of the Lord" ceased and by plural marriage was a topic inciting zealous defense among the Mormons, rather than uneasy refutations. Canton, Ohio, March 6, Snow, brother of Z. The Mormons appear to be prosperous in their new home at the Salt Lake. Defiance, Ohio, Saturday, March 9, Norwalk, Ohio, Tuesday, March 19, Late accounts have been received from the Mormon Country. They speak confidently of their success in these countries and where they place before the laboring population, such as that in England, pressed down to the earth by both Church and State, the prospect of a home, a portion of the soil to cultivate, and of a sufficiency of the common wants of humanity, it is not wonderful that they should be ready to embrace the doctrines of faith even as extravagant as that of the Mormons and be numbered among the "Latter Day Saints.
The estimate of the Mormons is, that their number in England is now 50, It is thought that very few of the emigrants to California will winter in the Valley of the Salt Lake; those who were too late for the northern route, took the southern, and but few are left. Goods of every description are needed much in the Valley, and would meet with a ready sale. There is gold enough among them to pay for all goods sent to them.
Cows and sheep, if young and healtrhy, bring a good price and are much sought for. Chickens and hogs they have in plenty, but not many turkeys or geese. The emigration from Iowa to Deseret will, probably, next summer double its present population.
The Mormons of Salt Lake. A Correspondent of the New Orleans Crescent , of the 18th inst. They are from every state of the Union -- healthy, though pale and poor about the face, cheek [bones] apparent. They are industrious and temperate in the use of ardent spirits. Probably one reason is the high price of it as one-half of the selling price of liquor sold here has to go to the city. They claim no allegiance to the United States, but call themselves Mormons and many think they are in a Mormon country.
There is a great number of settlers from Alabama and Mississippi, who have come to this place with their negroes, and hold them here the same as they did formerly. The successor to Joe Smith -- Brigham Young, is about forty-five years old. He has the largest number of wives of any one in the settlement, only Some that have come under my observation have had eleven, five, three, two and one.
The spectacle is revolting, and in the course of a few years there will be a dozen children, all of the same age, having the same father, but different mothers. To what part of the world can they go and be respected?
To be a Mormon is to be all that is base and vile. All the ties that bind the opposite sexes together in mutual confidence and affection are trampled under foot by designing men, to gratify their own lustful passions, and the ignorant think they cannot be doing right without following the example of their high-priest, Young, and their twelve apostles.
The Mormons have to give one-tenth of the products of their farms or other business to the church, and also the tenth working day the whole year, making twenty per cent, -- a pretty heavy tax most people would think. The object is to get as much money into the treasury as possible, so as to be able to carry out their plan, which is to have a line of settlements to the Pacific from this place, having its terminus in the southern part of Upper California, hoping to be able to diseminate their religion in the newly acquired territory.
It is interesting to see that the top Mormons' polygamy was being openly reported in the public press at almost exactly the same time that prominent LDS missionaries operating in the eastern US and in England like Apostle John Taylor , were denying the existence of any such thing among the Saints. The Mormons, soon after the death of Joe Smith, divided; the Mormons remaining in the States of the Union being violently opposed to the Mormons of Salt Lake, and charging the Salt Lake Mormons with having taken an oath of eternal hostility to the Government of the United States; pledging themselves to overthrow this Government whenever they shall have the power to do so.
There are many patriotic Mormons in the States of Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, who who have formed many churches, and who are all firmly believing that the Salt Lake Mormons have taken the oath of hostility to the United States. When the memorial from the delegates of the Salt Lake settlement was road on the floor of the Senate of California, accompanied as it was, most mal apropos, by a verbal message from Gov. Burnett, a member of that honorable body quickly arose and offered a resolution to lay both documents on the table, which was adoptod with a proper show of resentment.
In the House the petition and message fared no better, and although we suffered this action to pass uncommented upon at the time, we cordially approved the spirit of our Legislature, and now applaud the prompt, decisive and dignified measures by which its indignation was made manifest.
We had little, faith in the State government created by the the Salt Lake people, and were reluctant to credit the voluminous reports which had found their way into the eastern press long ere the tidings of conventional deliberation by the Mormons had come to our ears.
Our delegates had assembled at Monterey to frame a State Constitution, and it is possible, indeed quite likely, that a fore-warning of this political movement had reached the auriculars of the saints on Salt Lake shores, before an organization of any kind was contemplated by them.
Certain it is, that the proceedings of a body convened for purposes similar to our own, scarcely without the rocky environs and natural boundaries of California, were prevented by inexplicable causes from becoming known to her inhabitants until four months had elapsed and a distance of over five thousand miles had been traversed. And now that tho 50, people of Salt Lake and the adjacent territory have created a State government, and defined the boundaries of Deseret, as this new aspirant for political honors has been styled, it is proper that we should express our convictions.
It comes with a very bad grace from a people who renounced the government under which the greater part of their lives have been passed, but in view of the astonishing events which have occurred since their separation from the Union, to live as outcasts on the lonely shores of Salt Lake, it may scarcely excite surprise that the Mormons should seek restoration to the protection of our government.
The sweep of emigration to the Pacific coast dwelt not in the prophetic vision of the Latter Day Saints, and dumb were the oracles of their peculiar faith in the foreshadowing of a destiny so mighty. But the strong arm of the republic had girted them about, and but the alternative remained to assume, the importance of a State and enjoy the priviliges of a distinct representation in the halls of our national legislature. Simultaneous with the framing of our Constitution, one was also prepared, with indecent haste, by the Desereters.
Their boundaries have been proclaimed, and their representatives despatched to sue for admission into the American confederacy of States. But now the perplexing question seems to have arisen in the minds of the Mormons -- how is the new State of Deseret to be maintained! Occupying a position removed from the highway of commerce, without one single outlet or channel -- its rivers flowing into the vast brine, from which there is no visible escape; shut in by an almost impassable mountain range -- a formidable barrier to communication with the Pacific for nine months in the year; boasting but indifferent agricultural resources, even did there exist a market accessible -- these are but a few of the disadvantages possessed by Deseret which might be enumerated.
It is not to be wondered at then, that delegates from the deluded Salt Lake people should appear in California on the mission which has honored Gen. It is unnecessary to advert to the absurdity of the memorial presented by them; our Legislature have effectually and properly dealt with that.
The Washington correspondent of the Journal of Commerce writes: The present population is only fifteen thousand, and the emigration for the next year is estimated at twenty thousand only. Norwalk, Ohio, Tuesday, April 23, Burnett sent a message to the California Legislature in February, that caused some talk.
It appears that the Mormons in the Valley of the Salt Lake elected two delegates to the California State Convention, but they did not arrive until after the convention had adjourned. The Mormons avowed themselves opposed to slavery and teh delegates advanced this as a principal reason why they desired Deseret to be included in California.
They stated that a provision in the constitution prohibiting slavery would save the Congress from much turmoil and therefore urged the including at once of Deseret. Burnett's special message on their petition gave many reasons why their request should not be granted, and the Legislature disposed of the petition by laying it on the table.
The Mormons will have to form a State Constitution and come in on their own hook. Although the full details and exact sequence of events leading up to the rift between William Smith and Elder Isaac Sheen remain very obscure, it appears that about the middle of May, , William sent for publication in the Cincinnati Commercial, a notice declaring that Isaac Sheen was excommunicated from the Smithite church.
Stanton, disassociating himself from William Smith's various remonstrances against the admission of Mormon Deseret as a state of the Union. The Commercial had previously called William "a noble fellow," and perhaps he felt the editor would be a little sympathetic to his cause. Isaac wrote his letter to Stanton, from Cincinnati, on May 4th and it was published, in Washington.
In this May 4th letter Elder Sheen had some very hostile things to say about "the hypocrisy, licentiousness, treachery, deceit, slanders, and lies of William Smith. Isaac Sheen's turbulent dissatisfaction with William Smith appears to have come to a head after Sheen received a letter from Smith, dated Apr. This letter, which was published in the Cincinnati Commercial of May 22nd , attempts to justify the "spiritual doctrine" with the explanation that "the ancient patriarchs had more wives than one," etc.
Sheen's reply to William Smith has been lost, but it must have been so hostile and damning as to make William repent with words like "I Sheen did not accept William Smith's repentance. He went ahead and wrote his letter to Congress, and Smith retaliated by excommunicating the disobedient elder. The context in which the split between Smith and Sheen occurred is explained a little on pages of a booklet written by Sheen's son, in Through the visit and death of Otis Hobart it was learned that the 'devil' [polygamy] was in Texas [in Lyman Wight's group] and that William was not above suspicion.
Father laid a plan to entrap him, and succeeded in getting a polygamous letter from William, who was then in Illinois. William's wife, Roxy, came to Covington and the result was that she gave into father's hands a lot of papers and books. Cincinnati, Ohio, May 21? Smith -- The Imposter. The subjoined letter will show that the statements which the imposter, Wm.
Smith, is now circulating concerning me are false, and will in some degree explain the cause of my renunciation of him and his Church. The iniquity spoken of in the letter is a vindication of adultery and fornication by Wm. He claims that he has authority from God to raise up posterity from other men's wives, and says it will exalt them and their husbands in the eternal world.
His repentance is base hypocrisy, which he proves by his late conduct. Covington, May 20, Sheen, I claim protection at your hand; If I have done wrong in any respect I am willing to make restitution to the last farthing. I claim a right of trial according to the law of God face to face; if I have committed an offence show me my error in a christian spirit -- not the spirit of a savage. I can do no more than offer my body and life as a sacrifice.
I shall come to see you -- I must have a talk with you. As to the letter you refer to, like many others, it was written with a view of your correcting what was wrong in doctrine. I am not a good scholar, nor am I a good writer. You was appointed my counselor not to destroy me, but to save me by counsel, and counsel is what I ask of you; and then if I commit an error in judgment I will retrace my steps.
I will, upon my sacred honor, make all things right. I was wrong, and confess my error; will you forgive me? I ask it in the name of Jesus Christ. I have always esteemed you as an honest man, and have therefore entrusted you with my affairs and with my letters. I am more inclined than ever to favor your opinion about many things, yet it seems that I must learn by experience, and by the things that I suffer.
I wish to do right, when I am made sensible of what is right. Sheen, I ask you again, give me a chance for repentance. I am determined by the grace of God to set my face against all sin, and do the full works of the law, God being my helper. I will do as I have said in this respect, if it takes my life. Every evil shall go by the board. I am resolved, so give me a chance, and I will do all that is in my power to reconcile your feelings. My letters, Brother Sheen, do not open them, but keep them safe for me.
I do not wish that my wife should have the perusal of all my letters, She is easy excited; keep then those things sacred until I come.
I hope that none of our difficulty will be named to her; that all may remain in quiet. As to the letter on marriage, I wrote it when I was quite sick, and I wish you to correct the errors, if any, and do it for my good and not for my injury.
I can do no more than to offer my life as a sacrifice, which I am willing to do, and claim your protection. The exact date and the full content of the above article is unknown. Probably it appeared in the Cincinnati Daily Nonpareil on May 21, The text is taken from a reprint which appeared in the June 26, issue of the Council Bluffs Frontier Guardian. Cincinnati, Ohio, Wednesday, May 22, The statement of the Commercial this morning, concerning me are incorrect.
Smith has not cut me off from his church. I have cut myself off, and intend to remain cut off eternally from such a hypocritical libertine. He has professed the greatest hostility to the plurality wife doctrine, but on the 18th ult. He said it would be an honor conferred upon them and their husbands, to allow him that privilege, and that they would thereby be exalted to a high degree of glory in eternity.
He said that the Salt Lake Mormons had no authority to do such things, but that the authority belonged to him, and that I might have the same privilege. He offered me his wife on the same terms that he claimed a partnership in other men's wives. I told him instantly that I would have no more connection with him, and that such damnable iniquity, I never had, and never would participate in.
I did not wait for him to cut me off, and he has no church in Covington to cut any one off. There is no person that acknowledges him in Covington except Mrs. Smith says that I have become a Salt Lake Mormon.
This statement is false. I acknowledge allegiance to no church, neither Mormon nor anti-Mormon. I have witnesses to prove that Smith's statements concerning the Church Records are totally false; his wife, who has left him, in consequence of his licentiousness, has either taken them with her, or has disposed of them. I can prove that A. Babbitt was an enemy to me at the time that I renounced my connection with Wm.
I find that Smith has caused me, by false representations, to misrepresent Mr. Babbitt and the Salt Lake Mormons, but I have no connection with their church, and never intend to have. I have in my possession a letter written by Mr. Smith, in which he advocates the plurality wife doctrine.
I have another letter written by him on the 29th ult. Recent events show that this pretended repentance was base hypocrisy. Subjoined to this communication may be found an extract of his Fornication Letter. I have told her better, but all to no avail. The ancient patriarchs had more wives than one. This was allowed by the law of God, or it would not have been so, and for priesthood purposes in propagating a multitude of those to whom the promises were given.
There are two kinds of marriages -- first marriage by the law of God, and secondly, marriage by the law of man. It needs no argument to convince you that marriage consumated by the laws of man have no binding influence upon us, no further than our discretion is concerned, and is a part of the subject that I will notice in another place.
But one thing here I wish you to notice in the argument, as I pass along, and that it is no where said in holy writ, that whatsoever man has joined together, let no man put asunder. The works of man you know will not stand when the refining fire comes. God is able to break our bands asunder, that have not been cemented by the sealing power of the gospel.
In Mark, 10 ch. The question is -- has a man a right to marry her that is put away. My views run with the text in this respect, also to marry her that is put away, for the crime of fornication, as named in Matthew, 19th and 9th, he is guilty of adultery; in case this marriage was consumated in celestial order, or by the law of the authority of God, the holy Priesthood Marriages are made in heaven; if they are joined together on earth by God's own authority, hence a departure from this covenant would make the crime [of] guilt.
Thousands in this world live together on contract, and call it marriage, and now for the solution of the text, Paul, to the Corinthians, says, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife.
Then, of course, she must be his wife -- sealed to him by the law of God; but if she is unequally yoked and disunited in spirit, she then is not a wife, for no lawful marriage exists when the spirits are disunited. But it seems that Paul in the 1st verse of this 7th chapter, speaks of a crime, in its modified sense a little crime, and a little crime in the following manner: It is good for a man not to touch a woman, yet if he marries her it is no crime -- he avoids fornication.
But in the 28th verse, he supposes a covenant to exist, as in the case of the thousands that now live, as they suppose they do, in marriage, yet are not married, not by the law of God; yet it seems a man has his virgin if he keeps her as well, but if he defile her, has committed no sin if he marry her. I condemn this saying, because they are unequally yoked, and this contradiction is too plain and palpable to believe that both sayings are from God, in fact, Paul says, that the Lord does not say these words.
I say that if a woman lives with a man in disunion of spirits, they both of them are in transgression, and are guilty of the law of fornication. Elder Isaac Sheen located in Cincinnati, Ohio in Following this rupture with Strang, William expended a good deal of effort in visiting different branches of disaffected Mormons, including a group living in Cincinnati and across the river in Covington, Kentucky.
In Sheen joined the Reorganization and became the editor of its new publication , The Saints' Herald, which he published for several years at Cincinnati. In his Mormon Polygamy: A History, Richard S. Van Wagoner says of William Smith: Both he and John C. Bennett were excommunicated for immorality in the summer of Shortly afterwards, Smith formed his own church, in Lee County in northern Illinois. But his followers saw his religious polygamy as a cover-up for licentious promiscuity.
Isaac Sheen, who severed himself from the movement in early , referred to William as a 'hypocritical libertine.
Sheen's booklet Polygamy, or the Veil Lifted. There the younger Sheen says of his father: William was not above suspicion [of wicked acts]. He immediately exposed 'the Elijah of the last dispensation;' Sheen also says in his pamphlet: While there probably in the summer of Roxie gave Isaac Sheen William's trunk full of old papers and books. It was this valuable set of documents which William discovered to be missing from his home in Lee Co.
Babbit, Sheen's notable Mormon brother-in-law. For more on the disposition of these papers, see John K. Cleveland, Ohio, Tuesday, June 4, Recent advices from Council Bluffs state that the California emigrants at St.
Joseph, Kanesville and other points had, with few exceptions, left for the plains on the 1st. A Mormon train consisting of two hundred wagons and between six and eight hundred persons, would leave Kanesville for Salt Lake about the first inst. Alarming reports relative to the small pox and cholera almost daily reached the frontier towns from the emigrants on the plains.
The reports were mostly brought in by emigrants who had become discouraged, and were returning, and were not generally believed. A party of six emigrants returned and reported that Sullivan's company from Brunswick, with exceptions of three had all fallen victims to the cholera. The Callfornia caravan extended between two hundred and two huudred and fifty miles and always in sight of each other. Grass und water was abundant. On the 27th ult. The crops not sufficiently advanced to suffer.
Norwalk, Ohio, Tuesday, July 2, Stansbury of the U. These plains are but little elevated above the present level of the lake That it has no outlet, is demonstrated beyond a doubt, and he feels convinced that it can never be of the slightest use for purposes of navigation.
The water, for miles out from the shore, is bit a few inches in depth, and if there be any deep water, it must be in the middle. The Utah river, -- the Jordan, as the Mormons call it -- is too insignificant and too crooked to be of any use commercially.
The greatest depth of the Utah Lake that Capt. The river connecting these lakes is 48 miles in length. Defiance, Ohio, Saturday, July 6, It was finished by the Mormons in , was nearly destroyed by fire in , and on the 27th of May a tremendous hurricane demolished the walls.
The Icarian community of socialists, under Cabet, had purchased it, and were engaged in repairing it, with a view to fitting it up for schools, studying and meeting halls, and a great refectory for a thousand persons.
The workmen were engaged on it, when the storm burst forth with such violence that the walls came tumbling down, and the workmen had to fly for their lives. Those walls that remained standing had to be pulled down. The community are going to undertake the erection of another large and fine building.
Sandusky, Ohio, Thursday, July 18, The Pennsylvania Historical Society have just published a discourse by T. Kane giving an interesting account of his visit to the Mormon encampment in the western deserets.
The shores of the Salt Lake are infested by a sort of insect pest, which claims a vile resemblance to the locust of the Syrian Dead Sea. Wingless, dumpy, black, swollen-headed, with bulging eye's in cases like goggles, mounted upon legs of steel wire and clock-spring, and with a general personal appearance that justified the Mormons in comparing him to a cross of the spider on the Buffalo, the Deseret cricket comes down from the mountains at a certain season of the year, in voracious and desolating myriads.
It was just at this season that the first crops of the new settlers were in the full glory of their youthful green. The assailants could not be repulsed. The Mormons, after their fashion, prayed and fought, and fought and prayed, but to no purpose. The 'Black Philistines' mowed their way even with the ground, leaving it as if touched with an acid or burnt by fire. Vast armies of bright birds, before strangers to the valley, hastened across the lake from some unknown quarter, and gorged themselves upon the well fatted enemy.
They were snow-white, with little heads and clear dark eyes, and little feet, and long wings, that arched in flight 'like an angel's. The gulls soon grew to be tame as the poultry, and the delighted little children learned to call them their pigeons.
They disappeared every evening beyond the lake; but, returning with sunrise, continued their welcome visitings till the crickets were all [exhausted].
Cincinnati, Ohio, July 20? Smith, the Mormon Prophet brother of Joseph, was arraigned before Esq. Snellbaker at the instance of Isaac Sheen, who alleged that the Prophet was a dangerous man, and it was feared that complainant's life would be taken, ere long, by said Prophet!
An anonymous letter, supposed to have been written by Smith, was presented by Sheen and read; the letter warned Sheen that he should "die with the cholera, or some other loathsome disease," and further stated that if said Sheen interfered again with the writer's family affairs, he, the writer, would shoot said Sheen and no mistake! The lawyer for complainant made a speech, after which the Prophet rose to reply but the weather being hot, the Court cut the matter short by informing Mr. Smith that there was no need of his saying a single word, as the complainant had not adduced evidence that could by any possibly justify binding over to keep the peace; so the prophet walked forth again free as air.
The exact date and content of this report remain undetermined. The text is taken from a reprint which appeared in the Springfield Illinois Journal of July 24, By July of the personal relationship previously shared by elders William Smith and Isaac Sheen had obviously deteriorated beyond repair. Six months earlier these two noted Mormons had issued an ambitious political communication entitled Remonstrance of William Smith et al. In early May , Elder Sheen had withdrawn his support for that joint effort and began to openly oppose William in the public press.
This revealed secret knowledge helped clarify the nature of some suspicious advances William had made among female members in the Covington-Cincinnati area -- evidently including a certain "Mrs. Caldwell" and the proffered seduction of Sheen's own wife. Sheen the couple's son later related his father's reaction: He immediately exposed 'the Elijah of the last dispensation,' withdrew his name from the petition against the 'State of Deseret' and pulled up the 'Stake of Zion'in Covington William flourished the scalping knife and even 'little Johnnie' got a slash.
For more on "Mrs. Caldwell" see the Covington Daily Union of June 5, See Orson Hyde's Kanesville Frontier Guardian of June 26 for the Brighamite response to William's having "invaded" Sheen's "domestic circle" -- likely an oblique reference to the planned assault on Mrs.
Kyle Walker has pointed out these additional Hyde remarks, from his April 25, letter, addressed to Brigham Young: Their prejudices have been greatly strengthened by the lying villany of 'Bill Smith' who has been untiring in dogging Congress with remonstrances, petitions, and the most foul and bitter falsehoods against you at the Salt Lake.
The reports which emigrants have sent back concerning your enmity to the Governmant, and the precious morsels concerning polygamy Defiance, Ohio, Saturday, August 3, We have been furnished, says the St. Louis Intelligencer, with leave to publish a letter from an intelligent gentleman now in Deseret to his family in St.
The writer dates his letter April, We extract only his description of the Mormon city. The members of the Mormon persuasion are liberally encouraged to agricultural pursuits. They are allowed to improve as much [land] as they choose to have surveyed and enclosed in the "commons" near the city, and the pre-emption title they assume, is held indisputable.
One man can, in this way, accumulate immense quantities of land, but the privilege of selling it is not extended to him. Either to reserve the right in the city Every square has its Bishop, whose powers temporally correspond to our justice of the peace. The officers of the general city government are: The power of the President is unlimited -- his word in almost every instance is the law of the land. In the event of the perpetration of any crime, however, the council of twelve have a right to depose him.
Since the murder of the famed Jo Smith, Mr. Brigham has ruled among the Latter Day Saints. He is much beliked by the people for honesty so called in office, no less for his social democratic deportment out. He need never apprehend a revolt among his people -- they are ever disposed to wink at his little errors, and to award him a full measure of praise for his virtues. I have known him pretty intimately since my arrival, and assure you, that if not a saint, he is at least an intelligent, energetic business man, and a very pleasant companionable gentleman They do not, so far as my observation goes, profess to keep the Sabbath holy, nor despite that the apostles pretend to have secret interviews with their Maker, do I perceive that religion has much influence over them in any circumstances.
The followers of Christ they pretend to regard as heathens who stand the least chance of salvation. Indeed the Mormons regard or pretend to regard the creed of their sires which they themselves just forswore, as the most deceitful of all creeds -- they abominate it. The dislike they bear to Christianity is divided with [that] which they bear American Christians.
The United States is seldom alluded to in other than an unfriendly, rancorous spirit, and Missouri and Illinois, you may rest assured come in for a round share of hate.
In the councils of the people, this feeling is, from politic and prudent motives, in a great measure concealed. In society and in full business transactions, however, the allow it full play. I hear daily predictions of the most frightful calamities that are shortly to befall the United States. Its cup of wickedness, they say, is full, and the Lord will now visit it with deserts -- his vial of wrath will be opened upon it. It is firmly believed here that the cholera was only a forerunner of the greater evil which will follow, and I hear it ridiculously enough stated, that when the worst does come, 'Zion' -- the Salt Lake City -- will be the only one which can be looked to for security.
Cleveland, Ohio, Monday, August 5, They number about six hundred, and have a farm on the island, which is cultivated by them. They have also engaged to a limited extent in taking white fish and trout which constitutes their chief means of subsistence. The Temple, by 60 feet, is in progress at their settlement, one sixth of the labor of the colony being required upon it weekly. At present this labor is directed to the building of a Printing Office, the press and materials for a weekly paper being on the ground.
Semi-occasionally the portion of the Temple which is finished is used as a Theatre! Adams, one of the leaders, acting as manager, and we are informed the "Lady of Lyons" has had a worse "Claude," and an inferior "Pauline" upon Boston boards. This room is also used as a ball room, where the faithful chase the giddy hours, and also a place of worship on Sundays.
Strang is at present deeply engaged in deciphering the plates found by him, as indicated by a vision, back of Kenosha, sometime since. They are of copper and are engraved with cabalistic characters, supposed to relate to the interests of the "church of the latter day," by his followers.
He is described as a hard working, and industrious man, but most of those on the island are indolent and evasive to labor. Sandusky, Ohio, Thursday, October 10, Sir, having reached this point on my trip to California, I take the liberty of addressing you a few lines, which, if you please, you may publish.
We arrived here the evening of thr 4th, and have remained here till this time for the purpose of recruiting ourselves and our horses.
We made the journey from Council Bluffs in 49 days, the distance being about eleven hundred miles. The road most of the way is very fine; far better than I supposed any road could be without the application of labor. For more than a thousand miles the hand of man has never been raised to strike a blow, yet the road is better than can be found for the same distance in any part of the states I had supposed that the country from the Missouri to Fort Laramie resembled the prairies of the western states; and indeed this is the case for about miles, except that there is a greater scarcity of timber.
Thence onward, bordering the Platte, there is a strip of bottom land, generally from four to five miles in width, but sometimes disappearing entirely. Then commence sandy bluffs. How far they extend, I cannot say But I come now to speak more particularly of the place and people among whom we have found ourselves. I cannot describe my feelings as we emerged from the narrow defile or canyon of the mountain, and found ourselves in an open valley smiling in verdure, and blooming beneath the cultivating hand of man.
We had travelled a thousand miles over desert, mountains and wilds. But here was a perfect oasis, with rustlibg wheat fields and green meadows, where folks lived, and the voice of women and prattle of children were heard.
The Mormons are indeed a most peculiar people. They possess many traits which one cannot but admire. A more hospitable people I never saw. The emigrant is welcome to their houses, and if he is sick, out of money, or deserted by his partners, his wants are supplied and he is welcome to remain with them as long as he pleases. It is not quite three years since the first emigrants arrived in the valley, themselves and their cattle worn out, scantily supplied with provisions and the winter approaching.
But they went to work, and they have supplied themselves abundantly with the necessaries of life, and furnished thousands of strangers with food, teams and health to resume their journey with safety and comfort. The valley contains about 12, souls, and 5, more are expected this summer; besides this there are several settlements north and south of this, making in all about 20, They live generally in small houses or huts of unburnt bricks.
Each man can occupy a small portion of land within the limits of the city, and as much as they please to till without. Their government resembles somewhat, that of the ancient Jews; and, in fact, they seem to imitate as much as possible in every respect that people.
In regard to their religion, I have not learned everything. But they claim to possess in their priesthood the power and spirit of prophecy and working miracles.
Having lain dormant since the death of the apostles, it was revived in the person of Joe Smith, who was ordained a priest forever, after the order of Melchisedek. Polygamy is indulged in freely, and some other practices which Christians generally consider contrary to the spirit of the New Testament.
Brigham Young, the high priest of the church and president of the state, has at present 27 wives, and all others in proportion to their rank. They certainly are increasing very fast, and are destined at some day, to wield no mean influence in the nation. I do not believe they can ever be a state by themselves, and belong to the Union. Their customs, laws, religion and inclinations are all opposed to it. What they ardently wish, and at some time expect, is a separate dominion where they can maintain a monarchy, or rather a pretended theocracy to suit themselves, for the revelations which their priests are continually receiving pertain not only to religious faith and practice, but to their temporal affairs and their whole policy and conduct.
But they say that Mormonism is destined to overspread the whole earth, and not till then will be the Millennium of the world. See also the Huron Reflector of Oct. Norwalk, Ohio, October 22, Interesting Sketches of the Mormon Settlements.
Mormonism, whether true or false, has gone forward in gigantic strides, being aided by the help of persecuting priests and biogoted people who will always aid in building up any delusion which the cranium of man can invent. It has brought into its fold many thousand thinking people from various sects of the day, who seem from their appearance and energy, to be people of understanding and enterprise, who really believe their religion to be true, however unpopular, and are showing by their works the faith which they profess to have.
Of all the gathering places the Mormons have had, Beaver Island is the best. It possesses the best natural harbor on the lakes, where all kinds of vessels here lie in perfect safety during the severest storms. It is very comodious and beautiful. There are some five or six hundred of the church already gathered there, having set good stores and one nice steam saw-mill on the Island.
The interior of the Beaver is good farming country, well timbered with pine, hemlock, mountain ash, beech, birch, spruce and maple, and a great variety of other kinds of woodland. There are three of the most beautiful crystal lakes ever beheld by man. They are building a Tabernacle one hundred by sixty-two feet, in which they expect to receive their pentacostal endowments, which their prophet promises them, that God will give them when it is finished.
The people seem to be very industrious, active and enterprising. Their prophet, Strong, is a masterpiece of intellectuality; a thorough going man of good information. He was once the postmaster of Ellicottville, and editor of the Randolph Herald, of this State [copied from a NY paper] -- was a regular lawyer of considerable eminence before his appointment to be the Mormon prophet. Since which time he has had nothing to do with either law or politics.
He and his people seem to be very much devoted to their cause, and say they shall make Beaver Island a second "Eden' for beauty and privileges. His people, each, are presented with from 40 to acres of land, as an everlasting inheritance to them and their children for ever. The Mormons are regular free soilers, but not politically so, for they say they have never been protected in their rights in Missouri, or Illinois as citizens, and therefore they will have nothing to do with politics, but "will be subject to the laws that be," and be governed by them, but will not help make them, and thus bring upon them another persecution.
Beaver Islands are blest with the most extensive inland fishery there is in the United States. White fish and Mackinaw trout are taken in abundance. The Mormons own two good sail vessels, and can do a good business in the lumber trade. Propellers and sailors are continually going and coming into their port.
The first class of large steamers do not stop there regularly; yet a pier will soon be built at the head of the Island, where they will all call regularly. Garden Island, six miles square, is one of the richest and most beautiful islands upon the earth. The Big Beaver is six by fourteen miles in extent. There are several more beautiful and well timbered islands which surround the Big Beaver; each about six miles square.
The people have sent to Congress a petition for a grant of these Islands, and it is hoped that the government will give it to them that they may live by themselves and enjoy their fanaticism and delusion, if it is such, without molestation from any one.
Taylor, writing to the New York Advertiser, at the city of Salt Lake, on his overland route to California, gives the following account of the Mormon valley: We had traveled a thousand miles over deserts. But here was a perfect oasis, with rustling wheat fields and green meadows, where folks lived, and the voices of women and prattle of children were heard.
The emigrant is welcome to their houses, and if he is sick. Each man can occupy a small portion of land within the limits of the city and as much as they please to till without. Having lain dormant since the death of the apostles. Judging from her Mybook or FaceSpace pictures, the girl is sexually confused. Get her to register here and you keep your jobs. Carlos, go plan out the tour route for tomorrow.
Pasadena is on the verge of winning our fourth straight state championship, as we only need one more point to secure victory. She sets it forward…no wait she does a quick back set and Jo Sutter spikes it down for the kill!
This girl is much sought after by the big volleyball colleges and no doubt has a bright future ahead of her. A minute of your time? Actually you were quite amazing. Congratulations on the victory. We want you at our school badly. We know you have had other offers to equally good schools so allow us to do our pitch to you over dinner tonight.
Our hotel has a 5-star chef who is a former alumni and will cook you anything on or off the menu. What do you say? See you guys later tonight. The short blonde had dressed herself in a classic little black dress that should off her modest cleavage and incredible sun-kissed legs. They would like you to meet them in their room now. Here is a room key, so just take the elevator, swipe the card and go to the penthouse room.
She was happy that the elevator was fast and ascended the 13 floors in relatively no time. Stepping out into the hallway, her black heels clicked on the tile flooring as she walked to the only room door on the floor.
She knocked twice before using the key card to unlock the door before entering. That place can be a bit stuffy so we figured we would just eat up here. Adding you will go a long way to becoming a championship-caliber team.
I mean just look at what you did to your high school. You could have gone to a number of established prep schools but you choose a team that needed rebuilding. Leighton was her type of girl; wavy brown hair, beautiful face, fit body, medium boobs and long legs. Leighton also seemed to be really into her and that was another turn on for Hayden; she loved being lusted after. She adored how men embodied strength and power. Like giving me a car or something? She had always heard of the tug-of-war some schools got into for top athletes and was wondering if she was in the middle of one now.
Secondly, athletes are treated like gold at Highland. A lot of girls have gone on to represent the country at the Olympics and so our student body recognizes that the players are like gods. Everyone on campus will know your name. Being the top dog on campus would make me feel so sexy.
Knowing that every single person looked up to me and wanted to do all kinds of naughty things to me would really motivate me to go to that school. Hayden had a lot to think about and was quite happy when the food came.
As the trio ate, they talked of more general topics and less about the sales pitch. The food was delicious as the meat was seasoned beautifully and Leighton and Wayne let her wash it down with some red wine to increase the dining experience. That type of motivation is much different than just a frat boy wanting to add you as another notch on his bed.
She was even more surprised when the hunky Wayne walked over and started sucking on the other side of her neck at the same time. Hayden was experiencing a massive rush of adrenaline as the two sets of lips worked over her sensitive neck. Her mind was barely functioning as an overload of lust enveloped her. She was loving every detail of the embrace including the set of strong hands clutching her ass and the noticeably soft pair playing with her medium-sized boobs through her dress.
Wayne moved his hands up from her amazing ass and grabbed the volleyball player under her arms and hoisted her into the air. Instinctively Hayden wrapped her toned legs around his muscular trunk as she was carried down the hall and through a doorway until being gently placed on a large bed. Wayne just simply watched as the sexy women kissed each other and rolled around in the bed until an opportune time presented itself.
As he got turned on from the sight, he started to unbutton his dress shirt and remove it from his well-built chest. Next to go was his black dress pants, which were quickly joined in the crumpled heap of clothes by his boxers.
Finally the girls on the bed stopped rolling around and settled with Hayden flat on her back kissing Leighton who was on her side. Wayne quickly seized his chance on getting into the action by reaching up under her dress and pulling down her tiny white thong and discarding it.
Hayden was busy kissing Leighton but felt the satin material pulled away from between her ass cheeks. Next she felt her dress cluster up onto her stomach as the cool hotel air breezed across her shaven pussy. The normally modest Hayden made no attempt this time of covering her nude body from the pair as they continued to work over her body and deal out as much pleasure to her as possible. Leighton grabbed the younger girl by the hand and helped her off the bed. Hayden was led to the foot of the bed and watched as Leighton got down onto her back between her legs.
Hayden practically started salivating when she saw the inch dick Wayne was swinging between his legs. Hayden reached up and started stroking the cock with vigor before slipping the thick head into her mouth.
She transitioned from twirling her tongue around his tip and was now taking half his rod between her fat lips while fondling his heavy balls in her hand. Wayne helped both women to their feet before slapping them both on their shapely asses. Hayden was surprised when he stopped her from climbing on the bed and instead helped his partner on. The brunette was draped over the bed on her back with her head just hanging over the edge.
The blonde nearly erupted in a sex-crazed fury when Wayne then started to face-fuck Leighton so hard and deep that his sack kept smacking the sexy recruiter on the forehead with a thud each time.
Listening to the more sexually experienced Wayne, the short blonde jumped onto the bed and swung her leg over Leighton and backed up. She crawled backwards until she felt his muscular chest smack her smooth cheekes. Following her advise, Hayden pushed her thighs further apart until a shiver of pleasure ran through her body as Leighton found her clit with her powerful tongue.
With a little pressure he slide smoothly into her snatch and started working up a good rhythm. Keep screwing me hard! Kept licking right there YES! Wayne sped up his thrusts as the blonde squirmed underneath him as her tiny body was rocked by the strongest orgasm of her life. Her moans also made her tongue vibrate and that was enough to push Leighton over the edge as well.
Hayden sunk further down onto Leighton as her body was too tired to support itself anymore. The high schooler thought she was going to pass out completely but she could still feel Wayne ploughing into her with furious speed. Have you not tasted this sweet twat of hers yet? Hayden stirred slightly as she felt something intrusive happen to her ass but she was already experiencing a sensory overload with the brunette still ravenously lapping at her sensitive pussy.
Because of Leighton continuing to do her business to the blonde, Hayden felt no pain of being sodomized for the first time. Actually after a few minutes of him slowing pulling himself in and out of her, she was starting to enjoy the feeling of being full. The minor is whatever course you chose to concentrate in. The major for everyone is fucking. Everyone at schools fucks once a day at least. Wayne had continued to fuck her hard as he had two hands on her hips so that he could force her backwards to meet each of his thrusts into her.
Leighton was waiting long as the blonde erupted with a geyser of cum flowing into her mouth, which she gulped down with pleasure. Freed from both the attention of both recruiters, Hayden was able to roll over and off of Leighton before landing on her back and nearly falling asleep instantaneously. Wayne and Leighton chuckled inwardly as they watched the naked blonde be flat out exhausted after their intense lovemaking threesome.
With lightning speed Leighton was off the bed and running naked to her briefcase. Once there she opened the leather bound bag and pulled out the papers at the top of the pile along with a pen. Hayden found the few spots where she had to sign, applied her John Hancock and passed out the instant she was finished.
That way we can hand delivery Scarlett the good news. We can re-up our mile high club membership in the process. I could really use a good hard ass-fuck.
Every T is crossed and I is dotted sir. Yes sir I know that this will help re-establish us as a power in collegiate volleyball. I will let you know when I hear back about Ms. You have the highest amount of kill shots in the state at the community college level. I was hoping that would catch some eyes. Carlos was a little taken aback by her change in attitude. Taylor had went from such a bubbly and flirty personality to now of one slightly colder.
Since then you have refined your technique under the brilliant coach at Giggstown and have added some weight to your frame. I guess you sensed I got upset about not getting recruited straight from high school? The room was a classic dormitory with a large square room with a bed in each of the front corners, a couch in the back corner and a joining hallway at the back of the room that connected it to another 2-person room.
I mean sometimes a girl likes to have company at night so are the mattresses able to handle two bodies? The whole afternoon the girl had been throwing herself at him mercilessly but he wanted to get her to the point of begging for it.
Are you hinting at something sexual? It was a huge turn on to him when the girl had to state her desire. She chose to where a short grey skirt today to show off her incredibly long legs and the Argentine ladies man was thankful for the view. Every since he first met her that morning, Carlos desperately wanted to get with the tall blonde. She had the face of an angle, legs that went on forever and B-cup tits that exhibited a good amount of cleavage in her low cut shirt.
The blonde had his pants off in no time and bundled in the corner as his 8-inch cock nearly slapped her in the face. Her mouth fell open as she saw the thickness it had and was nearly drooling at how much his rod would stretch out her tiny pussy.
In that respect, he and Taylor were destined to meet. It turned him on beyond reason as her throat constricted around his cock while her nose was buried in his pubes then the next instant she was constantly impaling herself up and down on him with gurgles resonating loudly from her mouth. Taylor had lost the ability to anything but moan wildly once her South American lover started using his tongue on her snatch.
She went from running her hands through her own hair then through his short black hair as he took her to new levels of pleasure. The way he used his tongue and fingers in unison was too much for anyone to handle for any longer than a few minutes.
Once his broad shoulders touched the bed, Taylor had her leg swung over his thick torso. Using her hand to direct his monster cock into her delicate folds, she sat down once it budded against her opening.
It only took her a few moments to grow accustom to his width before she was easily gliding up and down his long rod. It helped that she was so wet as his thickness had her pussy stretched to the limit. Using his strong hands, Carlos dictated how fast the younger girl rode him and even would hold her hips down and make the her grind his entire cock in her snatch. Carlos used his strong arms to wrap around the thin girl and held her up by her fleshy ass as he bounced her up and down.
The change of position had opened her up to a new angle that rubbed her in a new and different way, eliciting loader moans from the teenage volleyball player.

William Smith, brother to the founder and Prophet, now the self-styled head of the church of Latter Day Saints, asserts in a communication to the Cincinnati Commercial, that the Salt Lake Mormons will not be content with anything less than a free and independent government.
