I. MATIUHOSY. A Sonnet, in which Moral Insanity is accounts for on strictly moral grounds. Matrimony is a nut For every man's digestion ; When the shell is fairly cracked, Pop goes the question. Pretty girls will sigh and blush-1—; Simper all they can, sir— Till from out their pouting lipa, Pop ! goes the answer. Cupid fans the holy flame- Rankest kind of arson— When it gains a certain height, Pop ! goes the Parson. Quite throughout the honeymoon"— Moon of losy colors— Iuto sundr}r dry good tills, Pop ! go Ihe dollars. When a year has shown its tail Round the corner (may be)- Out upon the world, Pop! goes a baby. Mother gives it catnip tea,- Father gives it brandy, And adown its gastric tube,- Pop ! goes the candy. All the sweets that earth can yield Won't suffice to calm it: 3>addy screws his lips—and then Pop ! goes a d—u it." Madame lets her husband swear, She must be the whippet ; And about the youngster's keela: Popl goes a slipper. Bachelor, who lives next door, Bears it for a season ; But before the year is out,- Pop ! goes his reason.- Maiden lady, up the stairs. Stamps, each moment, faster,- Till, from of? the wall beneath,- Pop I goes the plaster. Birty, ragged little boy,. 'Neath the window lingers ;: Thumb applied unto his noes— ■Pop!- go the fingers, Al! around the neighborhood, Such antics are enacted ; And while mamma is scolding him, Pop goes distracted, Tlie Mosquito Hunt. Kot a aound was heard but a terrible hum As around the chamber we hurried, In search of ihe mosquito whose trumpetaud drum Our delectable slumbers had worried/ We sought it darkly, at dead of night, Our coverlet carefully turning, By the struggling moonbeam's misty light,- And our candle dimly burning. No useless garment confined onr breast, Bat in simple night-dress and slippers, We wandered about like spirits distressed^ Or the sails of piratical skippers. Short and few were tho words we let fall, Lest the sound should disturb the mosquito, But we steadfastly gazed on the whitewashed wall. And thought how we had been bit, oh ! But&alf an hour seemed to elapse Ers we met with tlie wretch that had bit us, And raismg our boot gave some terrible slaps, And made the mosquito quietus. Quickly and gladly we turned from the dead, And left him ali smashed and gory ; We blew out the candle and popped into bed, Determined to tell you toe story. u Jfrmrasw IMcrfetnmtts.j San Jfraiukcr ^ferfentnk \Su $xmtim' %%ktxmmte TO FARMERS. ■a? o :o .a <o c o.

The Gazette de Lausanne relates the following romantic story": Prince C , one ofthe principal boyards ot Moldavia, and having, it ia said, Imperial blood ia his veins, had iu his household, as child's maid, a youug woman of Friburg. As she was a very handsome girl, the Prince after a while became smitten with her, and not only paid her at tentioo but gave her a number of presents. As. however, he'was married, the young woman con- Bidered it imprudent to remain iu the house, and left Moldavia. But absence only increased the passion of the Prince, and be followed her to Switzerland. There as a proof of his affection, he placed securities to a large amount iu the hands of a banker at Berne, and directed that they Bhould be given to the young woman at a future period. He, it appears, formed the design of marrying her, and took measures for having his exiting marriage dissolved. These measures necessitated his presence in Moldavia, but he contrived'nevertheless to pay frequent visits to Switzerland-. At length the young woman, fearing her reputation would bs compromised by his attentions, consulted some clergymen, and thej told her that her marriage with him would be impossible, for various reasons, and especially on account of the difference of religion :-so she determined to marry a young man who had fallen in love with her. When the marriage was celebrated, she informed the Prince of it,-and of her motive for marrying. The Prince was greatly exasperated, and a long and angry correspondence ensued. He at length arrived at Friburg, to ascertain, as he did, that the marriage really had heen celebrated, he entertaining doubts about it. When satisfied that the youug woman was irrevocably lost to him, he brought an action against her before the tribunal of Friburg, to obtain the restoration of the donations which he had made her, amounting to about 300,000 or 400,000 francs, on the ground that they had been conferred the condition of future marriage, which conditi she bad not fulfilled. The young woman on her part, contended that the gifts had been made without any conditions at all; and that besides she had not married until Rhe had ascertained that a marriage between her and the Prince was impossible,. Eventually the tribunal dismissed the action To increase the romantic interest of the affair, it; iff stated that after the commencement ofthe suit, the Prince succeeded in obtain Jog a divorce from his wife, aud it is added that he has just married a young lady of Belgium. —Ml * » t »■■ Improved' Shaksfeareas- Reading.—A teacher in one of the schools is in the habit of giving his pupils in composition extracts from poems, the Bible, &c, which scholars are required to transpose into- their own language, making; all the blind or doubtful passages clear.

Baths, have decided the vexed question in regard to the notorious National Hotel disease; one victim having been fortunate enough to try the baths, as a last reeort, wherein the "test-plate -showed a lieavy deposit of arsenic." This tells a dark tale on somebody, and shows how the people choose to be humbugged, even to death, rather than be cured by aa unpopular agent. The Electro-Chemical hatha were in use and Within the reach of those victims, but they were in the hands of Reformers, hence, but one of tho many victims, it seems, resorted to them. I do not claim that the baths are a cure-all, but that they are a powerful agent in renovating the human system generally, and that they will expel from the system murcury, or other mineral poisons, so as.to be seen by the naked eye ; showing clearly the absurdity ofthe Alopathic practice, and why the Doctor* decry these tell-tale machine!. Should there be any in this community, independent enough to Investigate these things for themselves, they may find it to their advantage to call on the undersigned, who administers the hatha, and is a dealer in electro-magnetic machines for family use, giving all necessary directions.

[From the Deseret News.'] Remarks Ity President Urtylmm Vowiff, (Tow. *ry, Sunrlwy morning, September 13, 1857. "I do not often get angry, but when I do I am righteously angry, and the bosom of tho Almighty burns with anger towards those scoundrels and they shall be consumed, in the name of Israel's God. We have borae enough of their opprpssion and hellish abuse, and we will not bear any more of it, for there is no just law requiring further forbearance on our part. And I am not going to have troops here to protect the priests and a hellish rabble iu'efforts to drive us from the land we possess, for the Lord does uot want us to be driven and has said, " if you assert your righta and keep my commandments, you shall never again be brought into bondage.-' "The officer in command of the United States army on its way to Utah detailed one of his staff, Captain Van Vliet, who is now on the stand come here and learn whether he could proenre the necessary supplies for the army. Many of you ftre already aware of this, and some of yoii; have been previously acquainted with the Captain- Captain Van Vliet visited us in Winter Quarters' (now Florence) and, if I remember correctly, he was then acting as Assistant Quarter Master ; he is again in our midst in the capacity of Assistant Quartef Master. From the day of hia visit to Winter Quarters many of this people have become personally acquainted with him, both through casual intercourse with and working for him. lie has invariably treated them kindly, as he would a Baptist, a Methodist, or any other person, for (.hat is his character. He his always been fouud to be free and frank, and to be a man that wishes to do right; aud no doubt he would deal out justice to all, if be had the power. Many of you have labored for bim and found him to be a kind, good man ; and I understand that he has much influence in the army through his kind treatment to'the soldiers. He treats them as human beings, while there are those who treat them worse than brute beasts. Well, the inquiry is, " what is the news ? Wha* is the conclusion V1 It is ihi-fi, we have to trust in God, I am not in the Jeast concerned as to the result, if we put our trust in God. The Administrators of our Goyernment have issued orders lor marching of troops and expending much treasure, and all predicated upon fal^elioodf, while eve:y honor ble mau would have first made an economical and peaceful enquiry iuto the circumstances- And even now every honorable man would use all his influence to avert the present unjust and en? tii-ely groundless movement against us, but Captains. Majors, Colonels and other subordinate officers hove not the power. Wicked persons, solely for the accomplishment of tiieir unhallowed schemes, have had the power to array the Government against us through their lying and mis- re pr**«entation, but giSizens, unorganized iuto cliques and parties, no matter how good tiieir intentions and wishes, have not the power to avert the blow when the Administration of our Government is arrayed against us, unless they will also unite agaii.st the few well-organized scoundrels who are plundering onr treasury and fast urging our country to dissolution. We have got to pro" tect ourselves by the strength of our God. Do not be concerned in the least with regard to all the affairs that are belore you, for we shall live and grow finely, as said a certain woman, who weighed but two pounds when an infant and was put in a quart cup. upon being asked whether she lived, " O, yes," she said, "I lived and grew finely ;■' it will a'so be said of the Latter Day SaintSj " they lived and grew finely/' '.'You arc' taught from Sabbath to Sabbath what to do, and il' you do that all will be well. There is only one thing to fear, and that Is that is that yon will not be faithful to the kingdom of God. We have that kingdom, and It will spread its balmy wings over thousands and millions who have not yet heard the gospel; and they will find Israel to be ,; the head and not the tail." "They say that their army is legal, and I say that such a statement is as false as hell, aud that they are as rotten as an old pumpkin that has been frozen seven times and then melted in a harvest sun. Come on with your thousands illegally ordered troops, and I will promise you, in the name of Israel's God, that you shall melt away as the snow before a July sun. "There is one thing that t want, for the satisfaction of Captain Van Vliet. One of onr old Senators, Stephen A. Douglass, recently said, before his constituents in Illinois, that nine tenths of our people were aliens. We hats a larger proportion of foreigners in this city than in any other part ofthe Territory, and there are a good many here to-day who have just dome in from the plains. I want those who are native bom and naturalized American citizens to raise their right band. [Over two-tbiids ofthe congregation raised tb,eir hands.] You who haye not yet received your naturalization papers will please manifest it in the same way. [Less than a third of the congregation raised their right hands.] Now, Captain, you can see for yourself that over two-thirds of this coogregntion are^ither native borri or naturalized American citizens. "I have called thiR vote that Captain Van Vliet may be able to do as he always does, speak the truth boldly and tell them of it next winter iu Washington ; and, that he can, if he sees Senator Douglass in Washington, tell him that his statement was false, for he has seen for himself. "When I was written to in Nauvoo by the President of tbe United States, through another person, inquiring, "where are you going,Mr. Young?" I replied that I did not know where we should land. We had men in England trying to negotiate for Vancouver's Island, aud we sent a ship loatlof Saints round Cape Horn to California. Men in authority asked, "where are you going to?" "We may go to California, or to Vancouver's Island.'? When the Pioneer compan^ reached Green River, we met Samuel Brannan and a few others from California, and they wanted us to go there. I re- i marked, let us go to California,- and we cannot stay there over five years, but let us stay in the mountains and we can raise our own potatoes and eat them, and I calculate to stay here. We are still on the backbone of Ihe animal, where the bone and the einew are, and we intend to stay here, and al! hell cannot help themselves. "We are not to be persecuted as we have been. We can say, "come as a mob and we can sweeten you up right suddenly." They never did anything against Joseph until they had ostensibly legalized a mob, and I shall treat every army aud every armed company that comes here, as a mob. [The congregation responded, "Amen."] You Blight as well tell me that you can make hell into a powder house, as to tell mc' that you can let an army in here and have peace; and I intend to tell them and to show them this, if they do not keep away. By taking this course you will find that-every man and woman feels happy, and they say, " all is right, all is well;" and I say that our enemies shall not slip' tho bow on " old Brlght's neck " again." Remarks by president Brlgham Ynnng, Bowery. Sunday ntftcriioon, Sept. 13, 1857". "It is a pretty bold stand for this people to take, to say that they will not be controlled by the corrupt administrators of our general Government. We will be Controlled by them, if they will be controlled by the Constitution and laws, but they will not; Many of them do not care any more about the Constitution and the laws that they make, than they do about the laws of other nations. That class trample the rights ofthe people under their feet, while there are also many who would like to honor them. All we have ever asked for is our Constitutional rights. We wish the laws of our Government honored, and we have ever honored them, bnt they are trampled under foot by administrators. "There cannot be a more damnable, dastardly order iEsued than was issued by the Administration to this people while they were in an Indian country in 1846, Before we left Nauvoo, not less than two United States Senators came to receive a pledge from us that we would leave the United States, and then while we were doing our best to leave their borders, tbe popr, low, degraded curses sent a requisition for five hundred of our men to go and fight their battles! That was President Polk, and he is now weltering in hell with old Zachary TayIor,'where the present administrators will soon he, if they do not repent. "Liars have reported that this people have committed treason, and upon their lies the President has ordered out troops to aid in officering thi Territory;■ and if those ofrioers are like many that have previously been seut here, and we have reason to believe that they are, or they would not come when they knew they were hot wanted, they are poor, miserable blacklegs, broken down po'it- ical hacks, robbers aud whoremongers, men that are not fit for civilized society, so they must dragoon them upon us for officers. I feel that I won't bear such cursed treatment, and that is enough to say, for we are just as free as the mountain air. "I do hot lift my voice against the great and glorious Government guaranteed to every citizen by our Constitution, but against those corrupt administrators who trample the Constitution and just laws under their feet. They care do more about them that they do about the government of France, but they walk them under their feet with impunity. And the most of the characters they have sent here as officers cared no more about the laws of our country and of this Territory than they they did about the laws of China, but walked them ttuder their feet with all the recklessness of despots, "I do not want to be angry, nor to haye my feelings wrought up, but I cannot keep quiet under the continued outrageous tyranny of the wicked. "I have said that if the brethren will have faith, the Lord will fight our battles, and we will have the privilege of living here in peace. I have counted the cost to this people of a collision with our enemies, but I cannot begin to count the cost pill be to them. I have told you that if this people will live their religion, all will be well; and I have told you that if there is any man or woman that is not willing to destroy anything and everything of their property that would be of use to an enemy f left, I wanted them to go out of the Territory, and I again say so to-day, for when the time comes *y waste our improvements, if any man undertakes to shield his he will be sheared down, for judgment will be laid to the line and righteousness to the plummet." Now the faint hearted can go in peace, but should that time come, they must uot interfere. Before I will suffer what I have in 3S gone by, there shall not bo one building, nor one foot of lumber, nor a stick, nor a tree, nor a particle of grass and hay, that will burn, left in ch of our enemies. I am sworn, if driven to extremity,- to utterly lay waste, ia the name of Israel's God. I know that the Saints, both the brethren and sisters, pray that our enemies may not come here, for their entrance is designed by our Government to be the prelude to the Introduction of abominations and death. And you cannot talk toa brother or even to a sister, but that she will teli you that ie consents in her feelings to have our enemies come here she feels uncomfortable and her heart sinks within her. Ii I consent in my feelings to have them come here my heart sinks within me, my buoyant spirits are gone, and I have no comfort, for I know the hellish designs concealed under the present movement. But we are free, and every man says,."staud by the kingdom." When this is the case every man is like a troop, they are like lioue. "Admit of corrupt administrators sending troops here and what would be the result? All hell would follow after. I naturally dislike to have any trouble, and would not were I not obliged to ■ but we are obliged to defend onrsclves ainst the persecution of our oppressors, or have „„r Constitutional rights rent troni us aud our- se'lvtis destroyed. Wc must either suffer that, or stand up and maintain, the kingdom of God on the . eartfev "Suppose that our enemies send 60,000 troops . here, they will have to transport all that will be requisite to sustain them over one winter, for f wifl promise them, before they come, that there shall not be one particle of fonige nor one mouth-' ful of food for them should they come. They will have to bring all their provisions and forage, and though they start their teams with aa heavy loaflS as they can draw, there Is no team that cau bring enough to sustain itself, to say nothing of the* men. If there were no more men here than there are in the Seminole nation, our enemies never* could use us up, but they could use up themselves and they will do so. The ScmiuolcB, a little tribe of a few hundreds, in Florida, have cost our Government, I suppose, in the neighborhood of a- $109,000,000 and they arc no nearer being cori' quered than when the war commenced. - Ancl what few have removed have been induced to do so by compromise ; and it would be far cheapest for the-Government to pay thedebts they honestly owe us, and leave us unmolested in tho peaceful eujoyment of our rights. "Would not our enemies feel well In going to the canons for wood, the first night, to cook their suppers with? The idea puts me in mind of aa anecdote told by ore Brown, about the mau whn took the first barrel of whiskey up the Missouri river on a log raft. "They might stay amid blackened desolation, until they ate up what they brought, and then they would have to go back, "It has been asked, "have you counted ttfe cost?" Yes, for ourselves, but I cannot begin to count it for our enemies. It will cost them all they have in this world, and will land them In hell in the world to come, while the only trouble with' Us is that wo have two or three times more men than we-need for using up all who can come here to deprive us of our rights. "As I said this morning, ten years ago on thifl: ground I stated that we would not ask any odds of our enemies In ten years from that date, and the' time I thought of it was ten years afterwards to a day. "They are now sending their troops," waa the news, and it directly occurred to me, " will yon ask any odds of them V No, in the name of Israel's God we will not, for as soon as wc ask s we get ends of bayonets. When we'have asked them for bread, they have given us stones ; and when we halve asked them for meat, theyhava m us scorpions ; and what is the use in our asking any more? I do not ask any oddsof those who are striving to deprive us of every vestige of freedom and to destroy us from the earth. "Suppose that we should now bow down and they should order their troops back and then send a Governor and other officers here, how long would it be before some miserable scamp would get into a fuss with the the Indians in Utah county,.- or in some other county, and get killed? Then the Governor would order out the militia, pro'ca- bly two or three hundred men, to kill off those Indians. Well, the brethren, knowing that the aggressor is a white man, do not want to turn out aad, like Gen. Harney, kill the squaws, and they say, "we shall not go." Then the Governor would say, " they have committed' treason," and it would be, " send an army here and shoot and hang them." Our enemie? are determined to bring us into collision with the iGovernment, so that they can kill us, but they shall not come here. "If the troops are now this side of Laramie, remember that the Sweet Water is this side of that place. They must have some place to winter, for they cannot come through here this season. We could go out and use them up, and it would not require fifty men to do it. But probably we shall not have occasion to take that course, for we do not want to kill men. They may winter in peace at some place east of us, but when Spring comes they must go back to the States, of at any rate they must leave the mountains. "We have no desire to kill men, but we wish to keep the devils from killing us. If you hear that- they are near the upper crossing of the Plat'%, they will probably stay there until they can collect 50,000 troops. We will say that 9 and 3 equal 17, and if that is so, how long will it take to get ic troops here? Let an arithmetician figuro out how long it will be before 9 and 3 will make 11, for that will be just as soon as ou? enemies will get 50,000 troops here. i -^ 'Our enemies are constantly yellihg, "rebellion,- ' treason," no matter how peaceful, orderly and loyal we may be. And now to come out in open ppositiou to their curstd corrupt practices, will f course be counted treason. But let me tellyci that tbe real, actual treason Is committed in Washington, by the Administrators of our Government sending an army to take the lives of iunoeent cit- zens. Every man is allowed by the Constitution to have what religion he pleases, and to^professr ' what religion he pleases. That liberty is guaranteed by the Constitution, " but you, "Mormons," an army must be Best against you bceause you aro Latter Day Saints." Yes, an urmy must be sen£ to drive us from the earth. There is high-treason in Washington, and if tho law was carried out it would hang up many of them. And the very act of James K. Polk in tak-1 ing 500 of our men while we were making oue way out of the couutry under an agreement forced upon us, would have hung bim between the heavens and the earth, if the laws had been faithfully executed. And now, if they can send a forco. against this people, we have every Constitutional and legal right to send them to hell, and we cal^/" culate to send them there. ~^ "When I get over being angry Imaypieaelr .„ nothing else, but the past travels and sufteringn "of this people through mobneracy are before me. "I am not speaking of Ihe Government but of the corrupt Administrators ofthe Government.-, . They make me ','ciub of a sign iu New York upon which was lettered, " All manner of twisting rind turning done here." B is just so in Washington City, they can twist and turn in any and every way to suit their hellish appetites. "Our enemies bad better count the cost, for if they continue the job they will want fo let it out to sub-contractors, belore they got half through with it. If they persist in sending troops here, I want tho people in the West and in the East to1 understand that it will not t oross the plains.'' s safe for thenar W / <^

A Sonnet, in which Moral Insanity is accounts
for on strictly moral grounds.
Matrimony is a nut
For every man's digestion ;
When the shell is fairly cracked,
Pop goes the question.
Pretty girls will sigh and blush-1—;
Simper all they can, sir—
Till from out their pouting lipa,
Pop ! goes the answer.
Cupid fans the holy flame-
Rankest kind of arson—
When it gains a certain height,
Pop ! goes the Parson.
Quite throughout the honeymoon"—
Moon of losy colors—
Iuto sundr}r dry good tills,
Pop ! go Ihe dollars.
When a year has shown its tail
Round the corner (may be)-
Out upon the world,
Pop! goes a baby.
Mother gives it catnip tea,-
Father gives it brandy,
And adown its gastric tube,-
Pop ! goes the candy.
All the sweets that earth can yield
Won't suffice to calm it:
3>addy screws his lips—and then
Pop ! goes a d—u it."
Madame lets her husband swear,
She must be the whippet ;
And about the youngster's keela:
Popl goes a slipper.
Bachelor, who lives next door,
Bears it for a season ;
But before the year is out,-
Pop ! goes his reason.-
Maiden lady, up the stairs.
Stamps, each moment, faster,-
Till, from of? the wall beneath,-
Pop I goes the plaster.
Birty, ragged little boy,.
'Neath the window lingers ;:
Thumb applied unto his noes—
■Pop!- go the fingers,
Al! around the neighborhood,
Such antics are enacted ;
And while mamma is scolding him,
Pop goes distracted,
Tlie Mosquito Hunt.
Kot a aound was heard but a terrible hum
As around the chamber we hurried,
In search of ihe mosquito whose trumpetaud drum
Our delectable slumbers had worried/
We sought it darkly, at dead of night,
Our coverlet carefully turning,
By the struggling moonbeam's misty light,-
And our candle dimly burning.
No useless garment confined onr breast,
Bat in simple night-dress and slippers,
We wandered about like spirits distressed^
Or the sails of piratical skippers.
Short and few were tho words we let fall,
Lest the sound should disturb the mosquito,
But we steadfastly gazed on the whitewashed wall.
And thought how we had been bit, oh !
But&alf an hour seemed to elapse
Ers we met with tlie wretch that had bit us,
And raismg our boot gave some terrible slaps,
And made the mosquito quietus.
Quickly and gladly we turned from the dead,
And left him ali smashed and gory ;
We blew out the candle and popped into bed,
Determined to tell you toe story.
