PEACE IN UTAH.
PRESIDENT of the United Spates last night transmitted to both Houses of Congress the sub-joined Message, communicating, on the authority of an accompanying despatch from Gov. CUMMING, the agreeable intelligence that our difficulties with the deluded population of Utah Have, as it is be-lieved, received a pacific termination. The whole country, we are sure, will share in the feelings of satisfaction with which the President communi-cates to Congress this gratifying result of the mea-sures which have been taken by his Administra-tion for the suppression of revolt and disorder in that distant Territory: WASHINGTON, JUNE 10, 1858.
To the Senate and House of Representatives:
I transmit a copy of a despatch from Governor Cum-ming to the Secretary of State, dated at Great Salt Lake City on the 2d of May, and received at the Department of State on yesterday. From this there is reason to believe that our difficulties with the Territory of Utah have terminated, and the reign of the Constitution and the Laws has been restored. I congratulate you on this auspicious event.
I lose no time in communicating this information, and in expressing the opinion that there will be no occasion to make any appropriation for the purpose of calling into service the two regiments of volunteers authorized by the act of Congress approved on the 7th of April last, for the purpose of quelling disturbances in the Territory of Utah, for the protection of supply and emigrant trains, and the suppression of Indian hostilities on the frontier.
I am the more gratified at this satisfactory intelligence from Utah because it will afford some relief to the Trea-sury, at a time demanding from us the strictest economy, and when the question which now arises upon every new appropriation is whether it be of a character so im-portant and urgent as to brook no delay, and to justify and require a loan and most probably a tax upon the people to raise the money necessary for its payment.
In regard to the regiment of volunteers authorized by the same act of Congress to be called into service for the defence of the frontiers of Texas against Indian hostili-ties, I desire to leave this question to Congress, observ-ing at the same time that, in my opinion, the State can be defended for the present by the regular troops, which have not yet been withdrawn from its limits.
The accompanying despatch from Gov. CUMMING is of great length, and gives a full and satisfactory account of his reception among the Mormons; but states that the people of the Territory are remov-ing from every part of it towards "the south," and have determined to destroy their houses and abandon the country. The late hour at which it was received, and the limited time allowed our Re-porters for examining the document, prevents a more extended notice of its contents.
