THE TROUBLE WITH THE MORMONS.! ,—The intelligence in relation tolhe Mor mons is of the most exciting character.. Brigham Young has unfurled the standard 1 cf rebellion, and openly defies the author-. §f the United States, lie has issued a Proclamation, in which he declares mar-. tisl law, and forbids the Government troops from entering the Territory ot, Utah, without his especial permission. The language of the Proclamation is de cidedly hostile to the national authority, I nci ainouuts in fact, to a Declaration ot "War. What run be done under these circumstances? The idea cannot be en trrtaiued for a moment, of permitting Brigham Young to resist and defy the na- U*>ntl arms with impunity, andyctappre- V,p/>-f33 may vil be felt, that the fcrrc* whii.li has been sent out thusj'nr, by no meat.- =ufnrent.

But it is also a fact, that this county possesses advantages which are not yet fully appreciated. We think it is now pretty generally conceded, thai every person who b?r a home here, would Jo wed to rcta'Ti it— that it will not pay [ to sell cuA and go West. This being con-' i cod' 1, it is our duty to devote ourselves '' io the improvement and development of hour adopted homes. ; i The Educational movement id so well - under way, that we trust it will go on i prosperously and triumphantly. But this . can only be done by the action of the peo . iple themselves. Let them take an in terest in the election of the best men for , School Directors, and cooperate with them : , —the Teachers and the County Superin , tendont; and the Eedueational improve-; incuts of the county, will soon be as con spicuous and as fortunate, as our Tem -1 peranee reform. What the county most needs at this - time, is a better system of husbanding her ' resources, and improving her advantages.; - T-'O much money is spent out of the ■ county, fur what might be produced in ' it. and too little is accomplished, with the ' money brought in and used here. Thousands of dollars are every year sent out fur provisions, that might be raised here. Beef and mutton can be raised in this county as easily as in any part of the United States, in this latitude, and they arc mora healthy than pork. Why them should our bard earnings go in thousands to the west to pay for that greasy billions article of food, that is, to say the least of , it, not a necessity to any lxody. Let (every farmer raise his own meat and a I little to sell, and see how quick an im provement will be made in the prosperi ty uf the county. We think we note a favorable feeling on this subject already, and we desire tuj j strengthen the feeling tenfold. Sheep 1 will gruvy fat on briers and patches of grass that would be worthless without them, and every farmer in the county' who has not a small flock, is suffering a loss which he ought to stop at once. Ihe present fail should bo a lesson to! be improved. It has been very unfavor- < able for securing crops and doing ordinary fall work, but it lias been highly favorable for fattening sheep and cattle, In fget they have almost fatted themselves.

Of course this afforded the national dema gogue* a line ehance to get up a big howl about aliolifionisuq and to persecute a Protestant church. Jim Green, the agitator, delivered a spluttering nigger speech on the oceasiun, when Gen.

Wo ask ail persons who read the hand bill fur the Buchanan mass meeting at this place, and who remember the appeals made to Free Kan-as democrats to vot o fur the Cincinnati platfortu, to digest the 'significance of the lowing Telegraphic 1 uisputeh 1° thiQ .17 Tribune : Washington. Tuesday, Dec. 1, 1 s'f>7. , At the Cabinet meeting to-day the Kan 'sas question was discussed. A number of leading Southern Democrats have ar rived wit Liu a day or two, and thrir in fluence upon the counsels of the Admin istration is always very manifest. The Lecoinpton Constitution is to be lbrced upon Kansas if it can be got through Con i gross by the most stringent party drill. The H'.uth insists upon it, and the Ad miuistratiun acquiesces. Personal as well as party considerations have tended to produce this decision. It is'consiJered : a good opportunity to check the aspira tions of Governor Walker and Senator Douglas, and to purify the narty from the remnants of Free-State sentiments. Gov -1 crnor Walker, if not removed, will have a policy in Kansas prescribed to him ' which he cannot follow, and which will compel his resignation. " The South insists upon it, and tijir' Administration acquiesces," and thus it has been ever since the election of James K. Polk. Whatever the Slave Power de manded, the admin! ffralion granted. I'uder the Leeompton programme, the people of Kansas are no l allowed a single word upon the general spirit or the par ticular d' tails of their Slate Co verm nt. J.V regards tf>e ho-1g of the Constitution the people of J\ ins'ts are not alio iced (fa- S aflernalict of adopting or rejecting it. And )et James Buchanan, the idol oi'tuc; Pennsylvania professing democrats, in the face of his oft repeated declaration that the people of Kansas, should have a fair chance to form their own Constitution in their own way, now accepts this Leoonip ton fraud berausc the South insists upon it. What does he earc fur the people of the North. Have ti.ey not submitted for years to the rule of the South, and wiil they not continue to submit ( Mr. Buchanan is sold, body and soul to the slave holders, and will acquiesce in whatever they demand. i'hc TriitEi From an I nexyt'cteil quarter. Tho Chicago limes, said to be the mouthpiece of Senator Douglas, tells more truth iu the following extract than we ever knew Douglas to tell iu a four hours speech. The Times is comment ing on the exultation of the Washington C Union at the Leeompton Convention,and thus replies, with true Anglo-Saxon pluck : "if the person conducting the Union were a tune man, he would know that Mr. Buchanan would never have been ['resident, nor any of his cabinet now in office, had the Democratic party in lssb hinted at tho possibility of the people of Kansas being denied a vote on their con stitution ! and yet the Washington Union. in its issue of the 18th, 19th and 20th lilt., can hardly find words enough to ex press its gratification that the principle* ( ui the Democratic party have not only ( been yhaiuelully degraded but actually , trampled under foot iu Kansas, The Union may exult, but the Union is not 1 the administration, and the / uion is not the Democratic party. The Democratic party stands pledged in every hamlet in 1 the I nited .States to secure to the people of Kan-as the privilege of making their * own i onstitutiou, and that pledge, though ' a I i> ion newspaper and a cabinet officer 1 stood at every cross road throughout the land forbidding it, MI ST BE MADE HOOD."

TIIR; WAY IT WAS DONE.—A Bhiladel plibn writes to the X. i*. Tribune 2l:d inst., as fellows : "The relief law of October list was paid for with money. It readies only in to April, just long enough to make more ■ legislation nc-cessary tire com. in or t "s-;.,n; so a uew hue and ctv .s g >t up in antici pation, and if the banks expect more in uulgoncQ tliov must pay more money. The banks in till- city were told in the terms that if they would pay -o many thou.-and dollars they could Lave what legislation they pleased. Put they sturdily refused ,to pay a dollar. Message after message was sent to them from Karri;.burg, otier ing to do the -j<;b at a greatly reduced price. They telegraphed back their do tern inatiou not to pay a cent, and the bill then up was iiuuiediatt.lv defeated.' II TO was a great muss. Certain Lieut's oft he banks happening to be at Ilarri*- burg at the moment, took round a bat on their own responsibilities. Money must be had*, and. the next day was the last of the session. One distinguished gentle man put in tiie hat a thousand dollars ; a merchant of this city pitched in another thousand ; then there were turns of al! sizes from a hundred dollars down to as low as ten, thrown in by different elas.- •>. until the whole amounted to the magni ficent pile ot ?G,OO'J.

Just at this moment, our own, and all 'other Christian Missionaries, are in emi nent peril in the blast indies. jhe sym pathies of Christendom are very properly excited by these unlocked for dangvrs.— Cod forbid that we should not weep with: tiio.se that weep, and be in peril with ' thosC that are in peril. Bui while ic is •dearly our duty to be in warm sympathy with missionaries in that di taut region, it is no less our duty to remember the perils of holiest men in our own count , v. Great as are the dangers of a residence in India at this disturbed juncture, they are not as great as in the Southern States of this confederacy. It i- safer to preach tiie (lospei among tiie infuriated .S-.-puvs, than among Southern slave-holders. No Christian minister can safely preach a ' whole Gospel south of .Mason and Dix- ; on's line. Christianity in its fulness i> j more effectually excluded from the slave | States of this nation, than from any otli- ' cr region on the globe. Lot a man preach against the sin of slavery in tho slave States, ami his life is at an end. .So " deadly is the pert-couth n maintained against this part of religion, that silence everywhere prevails. The Gospel is ( abandoned for the sake of peace. It is | safer to preach a whole Gospel in any other country on the face of the earth than in this where slavery has swav. If . . an India abounds with murderous heathen, thirsting for tiie blood of Missionaries of , the Cross, so also do thc l nited States: • we have them blood-stained and ferociou* - beyond all precedent at our own doors. — . 1 nstead v therefore, of exhausting our sym- i pat by on foreign missionaries, we must reserve a portion of it fur the martyrs on our own ground —for the anti-slavery evangelists in our slave .States. — Xorth- ° trn Independent.
