UTAH.—Mines of silver and gold, previous-ly known to exist in the valleys on the eastern slope of the Sierre Nevada, have turned out so rich and productive, and the district so exten-sive—two hundred miles in length, that a stam-pede thither from California has already com-menced, and will, i tis thought, equal that for Frazer river. Nor does this intelligence seem to rest on mere report, for large quantities of silver ore continue to arrive at San Francisco, for shipment to Europe, while the dirt at one of the gold districts yieids from $500 to $2500 per ton. To estimate properly the vast import-ance of this news, we must bear in mind that these mines of silver and gold are in the terri-tory of Utah, now under the dominion of Brig-ham Young and his Mormon hierarchy. These mining discoveries, therefore, will afford the means of solving the Mormon problem. With-out changing any of the county divisions as they now stand, the territory must fall into the hands of patriotic citizens of the United States and be relieved of the domination of rebels and outlaws. Thus providential interposition is about to do for us what the national govern-ment has been unable to do ; for these mining discoveries must be regarded, by every Chris tian man or woman, as truly providential at this time. By the time another congressional election is to be held, there will be people enough in Utah to defeat the Mormon candi-date, and give his place to an enemy of Brig-ham Young and his despotism.—Exchange.
