t r- o.ly equal to a Mormon sett! meat.

di-patch sv.v.-: Tn rela
tton to the hrdieiK'O :m 1 rc;ejtion ot
Klders Georv'' Cannon, II. B.'Clawon,
and James Townsetid as grand jurors,
they having te.-tilied that polygamy is
o:e of the fiindamental doctrines of the
church of which they arc members;
that they believe that polygamy is a
revelation (iom God to that church, and
that thev do not beiieve tnat a man hv
ing in t.olvgamy i gi
"i',!f i" of" ?i.l:i!rerv.
Chief Justice MeKean has
the following oj iriion.
"The sophi-m by which polygamy is
sought to be justified as beitii in har
m tiy with American civilization is that
polygamy is a iciicdous practice; that
religious toleration is one of the funda
mental principles of Americau institu
tions, and of the Federal Con.-titution;
that, therefore, polygamy is protected
by the Constitution, and that the laws
enacted agaii.st it are unconstitutional.
If the n.a-s of American people were
barbatous, or if the patriarchal or tribal
system of government prevailed among
them, it is m
iloss to say that our Con
stitution an 1 institutions e.tti.d not ex-i-r.
It is not a little humiliating that it
should seem to Lo t.eeesary to add that
our Cv:..-titu:ioti and institutions do not

of purchase money paid to the enterpris

which was charged to the company, but
as the sellers were very well satisfied

you hanging around unless you mean

hurry up, for 1 can't be kept awake

A lady writer blames the men more
than the women for ridiculous fa-hions
now in vogue, She says: "If all men
possessing S10),ono and upwards should
form a league not to marry any woman
who mounted a chignon, how long do
suppose the ugly monstrosities would
continue to be in vogue?"

Wiih a view to answering the frequent
inquiries emanating from citizens of the
various European nations respecting the
quality and extent of the unoccupied
lands belonging to the United Sta'es of
America, and the maimer of acquiring
a title thereto, the Commissioner of the
General Land Office has prepared, and
is about to issue, a pamphlet, iu Eng

of the pceuli.-tritias of the soil an 1 cli

manner ot aco'i riiig tiiics, and uitii, ot
our naturalization laws, or the manner ot
acquiring citizenship. In treating these
subjects, the leading feature wid alone
be given, and each subject will be di
vested of all minor details and technical

phlet is also designed to take the place
of the annual report of the transactions
heretofore used for distribution in Eu

Europcan mails, received at
York on the HGth inst. , bring ample evi
dence that the condition of ('iocn Vic
toria is more serious than is generally
anticipated. The London 7'iints grieves
to-day that her Majesty has suffered
from a severe and painful attack. It
commenced w ith a grave and general de
rangement of health. This was followed
by a violent affection of the throat,
which rendered swallowing or speaking
above a w hisper very painful and tlilli
calt, and the attack ended in very se
vere absce'os under the arm. The ab
scess was opened and proved much lar
ger than anticipated. This, however,
docs not begin to tell the w hole truth. The
Queen is &ti!l in imminent danger. She
is suffering from a scrofulous disease of a
very persistent and malignant nature,
and fatal results may arise at any mo
ment. When the (ueen is more than
usually affected in her mind, they al
ways send for Lady Churchill, and that
lady is now at Ralmoral.
