Freedom ot conscience and of
speech are sacred domain, which
even government has no right to in
vade, so long as they are confined to
i heir proper sphere, parties being
rightfully responsible only for the
abuse of the same. With this limit
ation, one may believe or disbelieve
any thing whatever, and avail him
self of every occasion to advocate
the same, both by tongue and pen
and he commits no crime, but on the
contrary, exercises a right inalienable
and indefeasible. We may do any
thing we please so we do not injure
others, and the law has no right to
interfere. It is the right and duty
of govt rnment, however, to protecl
its citizens against the wrongful' and
injurious acts of one another, and
this, too, even it such wrongful or
injurious acts were prompted by the
dictates ot an honest conscience or
the supposed obligations of sectarian
creeds and formularies.
The right, therefore, of congress to
enact such laws as will effectually
suppress and prohibit po'ygamy, is as
clear as any proposition in logic or
arithmetic. The piactical question
lobe determined now is, whether
or not the bill recently passed by
congress will accomplish this praise
worthy object.' It is well kown that
the provi.-ions of law and appli
ances ot courts, having tor their
object the suppression and punish
ment of Mormon crimes in Utah,
have hitherto been little less than a
broad farce. Mormonism is a pol
itico-ecclesiastical despotism, and lis
adherents recognize a higher alle
giance to their so-called church than
to the government itself. This be
ing so, the difficulty of enforcing any
law for the extirpation of polygamy
is apparent. If, however, it shall be
found impossible to root out this
green-eyed monsier of iniquity,
owing to the perjury, machinations
and deviltry of Mormonism, congress
having "the right to rrake all needtul
Miles and regulations for the govern
ment of the territories," maybe forced
to the neeessityot subjecting the ter
ritory to martial law, or to the adop

Two Tears in Oregon.
Two years in Oregon by Mr. Wallis Nash
is a well written book of .310 pages printed
on tine book paper containing several illu -tratioiis
of different parts of the state. The
author criticises in a very pleasant manner
the customs and habits of our people viewed
from the standpoint of one who has until
recently been accustomed to the ways and
manners of a foreign people, and many of
these suggestions might be studied with
profit. A thorough description of many
portions of our state with a general review
of the resources, industries and general de
velopment of the state is given, and exhib
its a more thorough knowledge by the
writer of Oregon than many possess who have
been here for a much longer time. The
climate and agricultural progress of the state
is quite thoroughly discussed with valuable
hints upon variety farming, which, if pur
sued more thoroughly in Oregon, would
prove untold benefit to the country, and
add materially to the profits of the produ
cers. Our limited space forbids a further
notice of the many other interesting sub
jects treated of in this book. It would,
however, be well for au persons wno can do
ao to procure and read it. It will be found
for sa'.e on the counter of Mi-. C. H. Nash
