THE END OF THE MORMONS COMING. A raid upon the Mormons would not be looked upon with disfavour by the mass of the American people (writes a New York correspondent). There is a deeply-rooted opinion in the States that the Mormons are the inciters of the numerous forays by the Ind-ans upon the caravans of emigrants and upon the mining settlements. The notion is also general that the Mormon leaders hold the key to a vast treasure house, mines of gold and silver inexhaustible and that these riches are kept for the sole benefit of future generations of Mormons. Congress has already shown a dispo- sition to attack Mormonism. A bill introduced by Senator Howard which, if passed, will practically ex- tirpate Mormonism, is now before the Senate, with a fair chance for the passage. Briefly, this bill, makes polygamy in Utah a penal offence. A few months since one Dr. Robinson, editor of the Salt Lake Vidette, was murdered in Salt Lake City by a party of men, supposed to be Mormons. Dr. Robin- Bon was a native of Maine, and the legislature of that state is about to institute an official investigation, and to summon the aid of Congress. It is unquestionably true that the lives of "Gentiles" living in Utah are in constant peril. Even the general (Viele) commanding the military department is compelled to remain within doors after nightfall, and Federal soldiers never singly venture upon the streets of t • after dark. A few months since cer- tain Gentile merchants, suffering under the perse- cuuons of the Mormons, addressed Brigham Young offering to leave the territory if the Mormon leaders would purchasetheirstocksatafair price. To this propo- sition Brigham returned a characteristic answer. He avowed that nobody was persecuted by the Mormons on account of creed or social opinions, or of any reason whatever. A certain class," however (meaning the merchants), had always persisted in misrepresenting the Mormons, and stirring up wrath against them. With these men the Mormons would not trade. He (Young) would not resort to coercion or intimidation to drive Mormons away from the stores of such men but he would use his influence" to keep them awav. Y o'wg informed the merchants further that they might go or stay, as they pleased.
