We publish to-day from our Utah correspondent letters dated from Salt Lake City which give soma interesting details as to the proceedings of the Peace Commissioners, and the arrangements en-tered into with the Mormons for the pacification of Utah.
Those who expected from the entry of the army into the valley the overthrow of Mormonism, and that henceforth the Gentiles were to have every-thing their own way, will be most grievously disap-pointed, The civil officers commissioned by the President will find it impossible to enforce any au-thority which the Mormons are not disposed to yield, aid as to any aid to be derived from the troops, that will prove but a broken reed to lean upon.
A residence of but a single day or two in Salt Lake City had served to bring the idea pretty clearly home to cur correspondent that the Mor-mons, without the necessity of open resistance and keeping all the time within the limits of their ad-mitted rights, can make a residence in Salt Lake City or elsewhere in the Territory, out of the camp, exceedingly uncomfortable on the part of any person toward whom they may take a dislike. President Buchanan, it is true, can exercise his discretion about appointing whom he pleases to civil office in Utah, but the inhabitants also can exercise their discretion about letting to this or that appointee a house or an office, or even selling him provisions.
The authority and influence of Brigham Young are far from being diminished by the turn things have taken. He acts now a more important par than ever, and it would seem that it has been through his influence that the Mormons have bean induced to accept the terms offered by the Presi dent.
