A recent letter from an intelligent and public-spirit Philadelphian, who is now sojourning in Lon-don, contains the following notice of a late move-ment of these people to ingratiate themselves into favor abroad by falsehood, and make converts to their faith by creating sympathy, by charging per-secution on the part of the United. States. Now that affairs in Utah have assumed a shape that certainly demand investigation by our govern-ment, it is to be hoped that matters will be soon brought to a crisis, and if they have forced the le-gally appointed officers of law and justice to flee from their territory, without any sufficient cause, if they tolerate a particle of the abominations charged to them, and especially if they should be found leaguing with any persons or party in Eu-rope, as would seem to be the case—then to give them to understand in unmistakeable terms, that they must "right about face," and, for the future, behave themselves as becomes one of the embryo members of our wide-spread confederacy. In this country, no church organization should be per-mitted to stand paramount to the laws of the land. The subjoined is the extract referred to:—"The Mormons are getting up here great feeling against the United States. I have just seen an expensive volume, richly bound and gilt, with highly wrought scenes, finely engraved, of their cruel martyrdom. One half the population of Mansfield is said to have become Mormons, and it is spreading among the "Navvies." As the railroads here are nearly all made, these rough customers will probably give Uncle Sam trouble. Do try to get the truth put forth, and let this contagious disease be checked."
