Wa brought our "batteries" to bear
mainly against slavery. The result of the
election might give us something to crow
over, if wo were not noted for modesty.
Wa may say, however, that our "terrible
battery" probably had some influence iu
keeping you from voting for slavery, al
though you belonged to that party.
Speaking of "influence" reminds us that
your extreme modesty, no doubt, prevented
you from claiming the tremendous major
ity against free negroo as the result of
your "wonderful influence." Well, to
you really belongs the credit of it, for be
fore your assault on Lei and, nearly every
body seemed lo be in favor of "free ne
groes," while after it we noticed there was
an almost unanimous cursing of "free nig
gers" among area the loco-fecos.

that Oregon papers do not copy enough

PROM SALT LAKE !
All accounts agree that ihe Mormons
are very hostile to the U. S. Government
and have made every preparation to resist
the U. S. troops. They bad taken a vote
in Salt Lake City to burn every building
in it and then flee to the mountains, in case
the troops succeed in making their way
into the city. Large bodies of Mormons
and Indians had been sent out to Fort
Bridger, and along tha canyons and da
files through which the road passes, to cut
off the troops.
The following late intelligence concern
ing the Mormons, which we take from the
San Francisco Herald of Nov. 14th, will be
found rather interesting, as showing the
disposition of Brigham and hia followers
toward (he United States ;
"The latest new from Dose ret is of the
utmost importance. Tho Saints are
arms, and eager for the frnv." Outlying
posts have been established, the mountain
passes possessed, ambushes planned, and
localities selected in which io cache the
valuables ef the Mormons. Great Salt
Lake City has been abandoned by its male
population ; the Indian tribes are in arms
and acting as pickst-guarJs to tha Saints ;
magazines of provisions have been stored,
munitions of war prepared and distributed,
and everything has been converted into a
general fund to prosecute hostilities against
the Government. Our citizens have been
waylaid and slain by hundreds on tha
plains, by tho Mormons and their savage
allies ; others have escaped only by being
ia ihoir employ, and supplied with pass
ports from their military chieftains. Their
Tabernacle has resounded with tha most
hostile and treasonable discourses: their
Elders have counseled open aggression
their Governor, appointed by the Govern
ment, has taken the Geld at the head of his
deluded followers, in open and armed op
position to that Government; and who
will say that the Mormons have not de
clared war against the Government I
"We have already said enough lo con
vince the most skeptical, that the Mormons
intend and will commit enen hostiliiv
against the Government ; but, to remove
the matter beyond all doubt, we will slate,
oa the authority of the Deseret News, of
the 16th of September, that Captain Stew
art Van Vleit, A. Q. M. United State Ar-
my, was dispatched to Salt Lake, by
Colonel Johnston, with a letter to Brigham
louag, inquiriag if the Mormons would
furnish supplies to the force under his com
mand, and that he waa returned without
an answer to this very pertinent question.
This silence on the part of the Mormans is
equal to a virtual refusal, and will be so
regarded by Colonel Johnsion, who was at
that time only oae day's march from Fort
Bridger, near tbe Mormon out posts. W
are, therefore, inevitably led to theconclu.
sioo, that actual hostilities hav com.
menced era this time. Brigham Young
Mid, ia his discourse, delivered in the
presence of Capt. Van Vleit :
"If the troop are new this side of Lar-
ami, remember that tbe Sweetwater is
thia aide of that -place. They must have
some place lo winter, (or they caanoi come
through here thia eeaaoo. we couiu go
out and use tbem up, and it would not re.
quire fifty men to do il. But probably w
shall not have occasion to take that cnurse,
fur wo do not want to kill men. Thty
may wiater in peace at some place east of
us, but when spring comes luey muss go
back to the States, or ai any rate iney
must leave the mountains."
Aa the troop will not "go back," a con
flict ia certain to ensue. We, therefore,
argua that, if the Mormons are victoriou
in the first onslaught, tbe war will proba
bly bo protracted, costly and sanguinary.
as their leadera will not fail to poiut out th
"hand of providence" in their success, to
their deluded follower ; and it will also
serve to stimulat tbe ferocity and confi
dence of their Indian allies."
Tbe strength of the command under
Col. Johnson amounted to about 1700 roeu,
with 250 teamsters, dee. The train con
sisted of 130 wagons. The artillery con
sisted of 12 piece, as follows: Four 0
pounders, two 12-pound howitzers, four
12-pounders, and two 32-pound howitzers.
There were about 2,700 Mormon troops
at Salt Lake City and ita vicinity, fully
armed and undergoing a regular course) of
drill. Gov. Young makes no secret of
his resolves, but, upon receiving positive
intelligence that troops would be sent to
Utah, he manifested muoh fueling, and, in
apublio discourse in the Temple, in the
presence of some Califomians on their way
to the Slates, he said: "I do not believe
the army will be able to reach here without
my assistance. I think it quite probable,
however, that all the supplies will be
brought " evidently meaning that- he
would capture the supplies, and prevent
Ihe troops from entering the Territory.
Be further said : " If the U. S. authorities
send a Governor to rule my people, whom
I shall approve af, he will be well recoived,"
otherwise, he said, " I will tend bins to
hell across lots."
We learn, just before going t press,
that Col. Stcptoe at the Dulles has sent ia
word to Portland that he has advices from
Col. Johnsoa to the effect that the Mor
mons attacked the U. S. force near Fort
Bridger and drove them back with th loss
of about 300 of his men.
Brvtrw at Iks Financial Crisis.
The Washington correspondent of the
San Franoisco Herald furnishes ilwith the
following review of the crisis by which all
the Eastern Stalea have been convulsed,
and to which at last datea an utter p rostra
lion had succeeded. He says :
All thoughts are directed to the financial
storm which has swept, with unparalleled
violence over the country, carrying down
the oldest and best established business
houses, banks and brokers, tho manufnet.
urers and ship owners, and railrond com
panies. Even some of the States will find
it difficult to pay the interest on their bonds,
or to prosecute their public works. The
Illinois Central Railroad Company has
made an assignment, being unable to pay
th interest on its bonds. The same is
the case with the New York Erie Railroad
All the banks in the country, with some
few exceptions in th southern States, have
suspended specie payment. Tbe bank
suspension is now considered as general.
The New York banks made a great effort
to maintain specie payments, but finally
yielded to the panic; and then suspension
was followed immediately by the banks of
Boston and all New England, New Jersey,
etc. The New. York bank would, it was
thought, have held out and aflord-d relief
to the business community, by a concert of
action and mutual confidence in each other.
But mutual distrust prevented harmony.
They first broke their customers, and then
failed themselves. The disasters conse
quent on this great revulsion reach every
man in the Northern, Eastern and West-
ern States, who stands in Ihe relation of
debtor or creditor. The South does not so
much feel tbe pressure, for they have not
run into wild and extravagant speculations.
They are not much in debt, and their crops
are excellent and will soon put them in
