THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1868.
It has, perhaps, been the crotchet, of
each generation sinc Aihim to reirarJ the
era in which it played a part as the most
important of all history. Certainly we
tihall say nothing-, at any rate, just now,
to do hurt to so fine a fi r.cy. Egotism
fits so nicely on us all, and (in our own
conception) makes us such important crea
turcs, that it's a pity to burst the beauti
ful, though evanescent, soap bubble. Yet
we do lire in an important era, if for no
other reason than that it is an era, and
one in which everything seems to be
doubtivl, always excepting our own impor
tanceto the universe and everything
else. We live in an important era for
another reason we are making changes
hy the wholesale, whether for the better
or worse in the lon run, probably no per
son now born will live to know. Of course,
we all say they arc for the better, meaning
thereby that we are trucly convinced they
arc so, and our hope is as buoyant as a
fish bladder. All the political changes cf
our age, we might say within the confines
of truth, the world over, really constitute
but one change, a drifting towards and a
practical application of the idea that all
political power is inherent in the people.
Our own country, within the past seven
years, has undergone a revolution as wide
spread in its nature and thorough in its
results as any that ever happened to any
people, irom the moment tho rebellion
began, the avoidance of a revolution
(judging now horn past events,) became
impossible. After the issuing of the
emancipation proclamation, the success of
the national arms implied a revolution in
the legislation of the country, and in the so
cial structure and the political theory of
a great part of it, so great, so wonderful,
and far reaching, that probably no single
mind in the land is able to contemplate all
its necessary results. The success of the
rebellion would have made two nations
where had been but one, one founded
on slavery, the other on universal free
dom. Iho suppression of the rebellion
maintained the one original nation, but
d estroyed slavery within its limits, and
in fourteen States uprooted a social condi
tion that was the growth of two hundred
and forty years. For 'cars previous to
the rebellion, the coming of this revolu
tion was present to every philosophical
mind that studied the signs. This gener
ation, and the last, had witnessed the eon
test for the domination in the national
councils of ideas on the one hand that
grew out of a society founded on human
bondage, and on the ether, of ideas found
ed on freedom, or, rather, on which free
dom itself h built. The lite amendments
to the constitution played, in one sense,
Imt a small part in the great drama. They
merely fixed as part of the statute law
what had been before decreed by the logic
of events. He is either a coward or an
imbecile who approves the great fact of
this revolution, and yet shrinks from fol
lowing it to all its necessary and logical
We now stand, as we never stood before,
on a plain trial of Republican principles.
Had we failed in the rebellion, and had
our country sunk forever, tho world would
have called it the failure of pnpu'T gov
ernment, although, in fact, it would jW.
have been so, but merely the death of a
republic from the contest of two great sec
tions, fighting for the supremacy, on the
one hand, of true Republicanism, and on
the other, of a landed, slave-owning oli-ga-chy.
In 177G we asserted the truth
that ali men arc created alike free and
ctjual. and in 1SG7 we gave it its broadest
implication by bestowing upon all who
ch'joso to avail themselves of it, the priv
in revolutionizing the English G ovcrnment
That government has hitherto been a gov
ernment of the aristocracy, in which every
man was guaranteed civil and politica
freedom. Not far in the future it will be
a government of the people, and for the
people, m which every man will hold civi
and political liberty and the widest relig
lous irccdom -not mere toleration as hia
That is the way we read the portents.
Lan it be said we do net read them
aright ? We do not mean that England
will be a republic. She will likely be a
monarchy still, whose monarch is an hcred
itary president. The dis-establishmcnt of
that lazy, corrupt, aristocratic, ecclesias
tic hierarchy, the Church of England, will
be no small step to that end. The dis-
bandment of a standing army will be an
other. The chantrine of tho laws nf .-.
scent, by which the real estate of the
kingdom passes to the eldest son, so that
it shall be more equally divided among
the various heirs, will be another. Nor
will those Englishmen, who, themselves
disfranchised, have beheld the enfran
chisement of their brethren, be likely to
long remain quiet before asking for their
own enfranchisement. We are not a
prophet, nor the son of one. We see
these changes. We reirard the teachings
that underlie them as theoretically rMit.
We know they bring new privileges and
new perils, and we know this "The longer
a people govern tJtcmstlces. the more fit
they become Jor self-government."

It is even proposed that an era of good

in the Electoral College, and give him a
unanimous election. This would all be
very well, excepting the consideration
which would be claimed by the Democracy,
and that, every one knows, would be a
good, generous share of public patronage.

The tone of the Democratic people to
wards Gen. Grant has wonderfully changed
since the election. During the campaign.
he was attacked with all the virulence of
party malignity, and ridiculed as deficient
in military genius and possessing no qual
ifications for the Presidential chair. Now
the papers are filled with flattery and eu
logies of the General, advising him in the
most condescending manner to pursue a
magnanimous policy toward the South, and
promising him the support of the Demo
cratic party if he will be a little conserva
tive and will make Congress repeal the
offensive portion of the reconstruction acts.

A meetiner of Mormon hierarchy has
been held at Salt Luke City, to take into
consideration the a-ivent ot close commu
nication with the "Gentile" world, in
consequence of. the approaching comple
tion aud opeuing of the Pacific Railroad,
and the expected intercourse likelv to
ariso through the enterprise of commerce.
Tliiherto the Mormon settlements have
remained isolated, aud the general migra
tory mases who pour into so many other
districts have left but a faint impression
upon the stranire rjeonle at Salt Luke. A
, cj 1 - -
few bold and adventurous persons engaged
in trade tncre, but when the racilic Kail
road became a certainty, the Mormon el
ders organized a proscriptive movement
against these Gentiles, which resulted in
driving some of them away.
lhc meeting just held has acted upon
this spirit in regard to the emigration an
ticipated from the completion of the Rail
road, and it has been resolved to expel
irom the Uhurch any Jlormon who shall
be in the habit of makinir his ceneral nur-
chases of tho Gentiles. This seems like
a shrewd device of the Mormon business
men to set rid of the competition of their
- 4- - -
rivals, and to compel the Saints to bny
of the Church members, whether it be to
their interest or not. Doubtless the fol
lowers of Brigham Young will find or in
vent excuses enougn for purchasing where
goods can be had cheapest and best, with
out regard to religious affiuitie?; but the
power of bigotry and intolerance in all
such cases is far too great to be despised.
If it should be carried into effort at. the.
Salt Lake vigorously, this system will
have one peculiar effect that niav oncn thn
V z " ---w
eyea of the Mormon elders. As a trading
centre a.t that point,or near it, is necessary
for the business of the Pacific Railroad,
the company will have to foster one of its
own, if the Mormons persist in their non
intercourse league. In a country like
ours, where such communities are created
as if by magic, nothing could be easier
than to build up a Gentilo community,
either at Salt Lake City, by the side of
the Mormon one, or near it, Bay a few
miles off, east or west. That town is now
the centre of a very considerable trade
with Colorado, Montana, Idaho, Nevada
and California, and if the partios engaged
in that business agrea to concentrate in
such a new settlement, it would Boon ri
val, if not eclipse, the Mormon city.
