on the list Her love for the prophet
is unrequited. Harriet Barney won the
tnatrimonial prize as wife No. 8. ;She
is represented as n sad, sweet woman.
" Sh$ was formerly the pure and spotless
wife of a devoted husband. No woudcr
f ghe is sad. Wife No. 9 was the po
sition assigned to Eliza Burgess, of
Manchester, Jogland. She has blessed
lirigbam with fife Young additions to
his family. Klleii Hockwood, a New.
England girl with considerable personal! '
beauty, was selected as his 10th wife.
She is sickly, and, as a consequence, is
of little importance in "the hou?eliold..
Susau Suively is the llih light. She
is of New England origin and devotes
herself to knitting warm stockings and
mittens fur the prophet Jtinirna An

No. 12. She was a widow, aud is rare
ly visited by Brighaoj. Margaret Alby
became his 13 th wife, but she died, in
1853, leaving two .children to the care
of her Brigham. Margaret Pierce ac
cepted the position of wife No. 14. She
has several children, but she and the
prophet do not live f.apjaly. When
M r. Campton joined the Mormons, at
Nauvoo he had a very pretty wife.
Brigham coveted her, and shn became
wife No 15, leaving six children to the
care of her real husband. Wile No.
IG was Mary Biglow, the sister tf wife
No. 5. Mormanism did not agree with
her and she left. Wife No. 17. was
Eliza Body Snow, a poet. She lives
elegantly and dresses chgantly. His
18th wii'j was Zona 1. Huntingdon
Jacobs. Amelia Partridge became his
10th wife. She is said to be beautiful
an the uiotlier of four children. Mrs
Augusta Cobb left a comfortable home,
children and friends in Boston to be
come wife No. 20, Wife No. 21 was
the wilb of the late Joseph Smith.
Young did not want her, but gave her
a place to strengthen his hold upon the
Church. Wile 22 was Clara Chase,
who died a maniac ; she left four child

her affections only after u hiti! and de

who indignantly repelled his advances.
In the sad history of all these mar
riage there i an rvidenee of that im
plicit faith vvhieh every wonati evince
in the fidelity ol mm. Every additional
wife seemed to bo convinced that all
the preceding ones were to be aban

only loved one of all. In no cae did

A Nor.LK Fi.rmon. The Newark,
N. J., Advertiser has the following :
" The Bev. Father Hennessy, pastor
of St, Patrick's Church, Bergen City,
delivered a terrible and bitter sermon
on Sunday last, leveling his thunder
bolts against the gin mill keepers of his
missiou. During his discourse he said :
' I am going to get a list of all the grog
shops and gin mill proprietors, and if
they don't close their houses every Sat
urday night a': 12 o'clock, and not open
till Monday, I wiil not allow them nor
their wives to come to this altar. They
must give up their unholy work. Let
them be content with selling groceries.
It's better to make fifty cents a day
honestly, and justly, with the blessing
of God upon it, than ten dollars a day
with the curse of God upon it. Re
member, that the money gained iu this
dirty work will not profit you long. It
will vanish like the froth on the river.
You are carrying souls to destruction
and ruin ; you are robbiug the widow
and the orphan: the poor and the needy.
Cease, cease your work, then and re

The New York Herald of the 20th
February has the following short edito
rial : " The British War Officer esti
mates for the support of the army during
the military year from April, 1872, to
April, 187-, shows u reduction iu the
Government demand from that of the
la'st but still current year, of a million
of pounds sterling. This does not look
like war. A few such item of retrench
ment at home would soon make up
thirty millions of dollars in gold to ten
der for a discharge from the American
bill of damages in the Alabama case."

Couldn't Spell fu
A Yankee from the G reen Mountains
visited the city ot London. While pass
ing through one f the thoroughfares,
his attention ws arrested by some speci
mens of writing paper exposed for sale
iu a shop window. Seeing the proprietor
of the establishment standing in the
door, the Yaukee asked civilly, what he
did with those nice bits of tiapcr.
" We keep them to ti s irp gape seed
in," said the cockney, snappishly.
Oh, yedu-r-du ye?" said JohnatlHin.
Passing down the street a few steps,
our tudiguaut Yaukee saw another mer

that feller does for a living what keeps

"I reckon he is a small dealer and

Rich Quartz. We saw on o day
last week, says the .Bed Rock Democrat,
a piece of quartz from the Virtue Gold
Mining Company Quartz Ledge that
for richness exceeds anything ever
struck io this locality. Experts iu
quartz matters assure us that a ton of
such quartz will pan out S50,000 at the
lowest calculation. The great trouble
is that it, together with considerable
more like it, was found iu a "pocket,"
and these geological " pockets," like
most other oekots, cneiallv become
emptied very- suddenly. We hope,
however that this quartz " pocket" may
bo an exception , and if it should! yield
any more than the Virtue Gold Min-.
ing Company know what to do with, wo
respectfully suggest that we can man
age the surplus without inconvenience

Arms to France
The New York Times of February
20th says :
Mr. Conkling yesterday replied to
Hie elaborate speeches of Messrs. Sum
ner and Sekurz, on the sale of arms
during the French and German war.
His exposure of the motive for the in
troduction' the preposterous preamble,
which no .Senator could Vote foi without
declaring tbe country disgraced, was
very scathing, aud added to the discom
fort already brought on the authors of
the resolution. It could not have been
pleasant to Mr. Sumner to have had the
fact published that the Democratic Com
mittees are flooding New Hampshire
with his speeches, but that is a slight
humiliation compared to the growing
popular conviction that he has utterly
forgotten patriotism iu an unsucessful
attempt to gratify his personal and pol t
icaTresentmut ; moreover, "he bids fair
to have his fill of investigation. His
scandalous preamble will ba voted down
by a majority that will further mortify
him, but the investigation he called foV
he will get with the addition of an in
quiry as to whether he or any other Sen
ator has been 'committing a penal o fTeu.se
in carrying on a C3rrespondenee with
the ageut of a foreign government to de
feat the measures of the United States.
No one doubts that the conduct of
Messrs. Sumner and Shurz has been
disgraceful. The question y;t remains
whether it has not been unlawful.
PnuNicioi s Effk ts of Chkksr.
Many persons cannot eat cheese with
out experiencing. serious derangement of
their digestive organs. With many it
is quite indigestible With others only
a small piece will cause severe constipa
tion. Pr -f. Daniels says : It is a well
known fact that chees; when cat?n of
ten produces all the symptom of a?i ir
ritant po'son, and that this effect may
be produced by one or two cherse if a
dairy is perfectly whokMmo. The na
ture f the p ji.-on and the cause pro luc
ing it are unknown. In o:ms cases it
has oc n fcupr-ti,ej to rsuir inuu me
cons having eaten vegetables contain
tng poionou principle. It most prob
iluy results iroui s-oue org inie poim, J
generated by feruieuiat on, or put refac
tion, caused by improper sooth-i !- of
curing. But ehi mi-try has. to the
prest nt. tint, failed todetecf the p-ion-ous
principle, so that no sure means oS
prevention can be given. In some
ca-es, where the chee-e has not been
properly pressed, and the casein ha un
dergone a chctii'eal change, there poison
ous elleets h ive occurred. In such in
stances the chec.-e is found to be strongly
acid, an 1 yields, when treated willt
ether, an acrid, irritant oil. These facts
make it probable that cam and skill in
preparing the curd for the press, in
pressing properly, as well as in curing,
may do much to lessen this evil, which
is ot far too ft tquent occurrence.
Wood-hull-ing the Children This
is what the Louisville Ledger thinks
"Mrs. Wood hull claims the right to
choose the father of her own children.
We have never quarreled with the
Mrs. Woodhulls for exercising this
right freely, frequently and capriciously,
but for never exercising it until it's
too late. This way of selecting a father
out of a dozen suspicious characters,
and long after the child is born is what
wo complain of."
