If the constitutional rijhls which appertain, unto us as American citizens, were extended to Utah, according to the spirit and meaning thereof, and freely and impartially administered, that is all we could ask, all that we have ever asked; Onr opponents have availed themselves of pi,eja< dices existing agniost us, because of our religious faith, to send out a formidable host to accomplish our destruction. We have had no privilege or opportunity of defending ourselves from the false; foul and unjust aspersions against us, before the nation. The Government has not condescended to cause an investigating committee or other per- sons to be sent to inquire into and ascertaiu the truth, as is customary in such cases. We know their aspersions to be false, hut that avails us nothing. We are condemned unheard, and forced to an issue with an armed mercenary mob which has been sent against us at the instigation of anonymous letter writers, ashamed to father base slanders and falsehoods which they have given to the public—of corrupt officials who have brought false accusations against us to secure themselves in their own infamy—of hireling priests and howling editors who prostitute the truth for filthy lucre's sake. The issue which has been thus forced upon u6( compels us to resort to the great first law ot.self- preservation, and stand in our own defence and right, guaranteed unto us by the genius oflhe in- itituions of our country,' and ou which the Government is bastd. Our duty to ourselves nnd families requires ue uot to lamely submit to be driven and slain, without an attempt lo preserve ourselves. Onr duty to our country, our holy religion, our God, to freedom and liberty, requires law requires the register and receiver to adjudicate such claim.

The first of January, 1858, will be, here, and with the day appear the members elect to the Legislature. They wil1, for the tirst time in the history of our State, find the Treasury prepared to meet all demands which may be drawn upon it for the per diem of members. In consideration of tlie State paying cash, we trust the Legislature will cut down the pay oi its officers, clerks, pages, etc., to the very lowest sum which is deemed a reasonable compensation. Heretofore, hangers-on about the Legislature for a good winter's job, have been paid far too liberally. To some extent last year was an exception, and the coming Legislature in point of enonomy, ought to far excel all which have gone before it.

Upon the discovery of a good road between the points first iheutiotied depended the success of this great thoroughfare, from Fort Kearney to the California Slate line at Honey Lake. The opening ot this new route will save many miles of travel to' both California and Oregon emigrants. It is thought the expedition will get through to California by the 15th December.

About one million dollars has been subscribed towards the two millions necessary, (within 18 days) to save the N. Y. and Erie Railroad.

J\ Imfoktaxt Information to Pebsoks Desirous of Purchasing Puhlic Lands.—The Washington Union, of Octobep 10th, publishes the following directions for the guidance of those who may desire to purchase public lands. As a lar&e quantity of government domain has been recently offered for Bale in California, our readers may find the information contained in it of great value: — '•When an individual applies to tho register of a laud district to purchase a tract of land, he is required to hie a written " application." On such application the register endorses his certificate, showing the land is vacant and subjeet to entry. That certificate the applicant carries to the re. ceiver, and it ie the evidence on which the receiver permits payment to be made', and issues his 1 "original receipt,'' the duplicate of which is handed to the purchaser as his evidence of payment, and which is required to be surrendered when a patent is forwarded from the General Land Office for delivery. The - original receipt" is banded to the register, who indicates the sale on his township plat, enters the same in his tract book, and it is transmitted by the register to the General Laud Office, with the monthly abstract of sales aud certificates of purchase. This is the formality prescribed to individual purchasers, and must be observed not only for their protection in securing titles, but for the protection of the interests of the government. The law has established two officers in a land district—the register and re. oeiver--and prescribed a mode of proceeding to serve as check upon each other. II a claimant tails to observe the requirements, he does it at his 1 peril. If he deposits money with any person con-' nected with the district office, even with a receiver without having first filed a written application with the register, he does so at hie own risk, government not being responsible for any loss whore I the terms on which the law authorizes entries are departed from. Mmtm&ERS Caituued.—Two of the Chinamen ... a mistake. The charges against him have noth ng to do with the Cheyenne expedition, but relate to transactions at Fort Leavenworth before going nut to meet the Indians. They partake rather of the character of insubordination, and «__- out of a conflict: between Col. Sumner and another officer charged by Gen, Smith with the execution of certain orders. —-—1*1 ■ ^ » ■> «■»■ ... Gloomy Prospects.—The New York Tribune predicts that by the first or middle of December, one hundred thousand persons in the city of New York will he out of employment and nearly out of means. The ship yards in New York are nearly itfle,- the founderies but half working, aud the great clothing stores doing very little. It is stated that women have recently come to New York from places three hundred miles away in quest of work from the clothing stores, only to be turned off with none, and compelled to beg Iheir way home again. I Powers' Statue of Webster.—The Florence correspondent of the Newark Daily Advertiser, says that Powers' noble statue of Webster has h'eeu-.transferred to bronze at the foundry iu that city, and is about to be shipped for Boston, The casting is quite worthy of the model ; admirable for tone and accuracy. It was visited by tho members of the Royal family, the Ministers ol State, and many of the cotmoi^eurs of the country, who concur in ascribing 40 it the highest merit. The San Jose City Hall.—lo the case of Pio- chc, Bayerque & Co., vs. the Mayor and Common Council of San Jose, a judgment was rendered in the U. S. Circuit Court, lately in favor of the plaintiffs for $24,000. The plaintiffs loaned tbe city ot Sau Jose the Bnm of $13,000, at 24 per cent, per month, in January, 1855, to build a City Hall with. The defendants made default in payment, and hence the suit—S. F. Bulletin, 2ith. Resiux_i>.—Hon. W. B. Norman, says the Stale Journal, Senator from the l&tb District, compos- id of Calaveras and Amador counties, on Friday last presented his resignation to the Governor. The resignation was accepted and an election to fill the vacancy ordered to be held on Saturday, December oth. Senator Norman was elected in November, 1850, and has held the position one year ; this, however, being his second term. Tue Utah Expedition.—The Little Rock Gazette has seen a letter irom an army officer of this expedition to a friend in Arkansas. The] letter gives the strength of tho expedition, as follows: 5lh infantry 10 companies, 480 men 10th infantry 8 oompanies, 590:men | (Uh infantry 4 companies, 320 men 1st cavalry 4 companies, 240 men i tth artillery..

From India the news is morecheering, although Delhi t-tili held out. Lucknow had not been taken' by the insurgents. In Yucatan, a horrible massacre hy Indian, had" taken place—the victims number over 500. Gen, Walker and his forces are lying perfectly quiet. He says his departure.will not he delayed: more than a month. The Bank of the State of Missouri and the Mer-' chants aud Southron Bank at St. Louis, suspended' specie payments. Hon. A. O. P. Nicholson, editor of the Washington Union during Gen. Pierce's Administration, has been elected to the U. S. Senate by the Legis-' laturc of Tennessee. In Great Britain, the potato disease has assutn-' ed a violence equal to that of 1846. It now appears that the Administration do no* propose any retrenchment in the public works. Complete returns from Minnesota give Sibley Democrat) 123 majority. 29th.—The Persia, with 3 days later news from Europe, reached here yesterday. She brings a million and a quarter in specie, aud more of it is' on the way. The bullion in the Bank of England had fallen off, but £2,000,000 had arrived" from Australia and Brazil. The India mail had reached London'with detail. confirmatery of the good news telegraphed pre-" viously. It is confidently predicted that Delhi would be taken during the ensuing foroigkt. There is nothing of interest from France. The maritime prefect of Brest had forwardecTto ! a bottle containing a paper purporting to have been thrown from the steamship Pacific, when' fast sinking, after collison with an iceberg.

Tho city of Baltimore had been placed under, martial law by the Governor of Maryland, in order to put a stop to the outrages of the Plug Uglies and other gangs of rowdies. Besides specie, the Engliih .teamen are bring. ing out considerable remittances in the shape of acceptances bearing a bank guarantee, and which are forwarded on from here to New Orleans, for the purchase of cotton. The President's first diplomat!, dinner was tt splendid affair. Senators Gwin and Bright were present. 31st.—The Pcstraaster General has offered the Corporation of New York $250,000 for a lot in* the Park, for a post office site.
