SOMETHING WANTED. The Snow storni of Monday and Taeday has obstructed work on the tjtah Northern. The, suspension of labor is but temporary; As soon as the present cold snap has passed over as we believe it will, giving us good weather again for a short time, prosecution of the work will be re Bamed; and Sapt L. Farr expresses his determination to push it through 3 - to completion if possible. The grad ing up to the old juuctiou is complet ed, with the exception of a piece near Marsh's farm in Cos Polder County, and the track' is laid to a distance of about eight miles. Nothing that we know of will hin der the progress of the road, except the lack of a little more ready means for the support , of. the. operatives. Theso are tight times. Those who 1 0 have ca&h are locking it up, and helpI ing to render the financial pressure more burdensome. Tho stringency f the money market is felt everywhere, and the Utah Northern is affected L y it. in cammon with other A little help just now enterprises. will accomplish a great deal.

Everybody knows taut the Utah Northern is destined to add greatly to the wealth and importance of our city, ta raise the value of 'real 'estate, to bring business jut') our midst, and to enhance cur general prosperity. Yet but . . have invested any capital in the road or assisted to forward the enterprise. At no time in the history tf the Utah Northern would a little bid in the shape of cash have been more opportune than the present. This being the cise, why should not the City come to the rescue ?

Mahon contained in- - his letter which will be found in another column. There is a large number of respectable persons residing in Utah who differ in their relhrious belief from the masses of our citizens, at the same time they have no desire to stir up strife nor They infringe upon our rights. know as well as we do .that the disreputably crowd who seek for Congressional interference with onr local affairs have no object iu view but personal greed, and the gratification of malicious spite. They know that the obstacles in the way of the higher courts of the Territory are of the judges' own making. They know that uuder the laws of the Territory as administered by the lesser courts, justice and equity have been dealt out to all,entirely irrespective of creed or sectional feeling. They know that the Mormon people have been belied by Federal officials and their unscrupulous hirelings, and that the situation of affairs here is not understood by the head of the Government. Under theso considerations it would be an act becoming in them and an honor and credit to their patriotism and love cf' fair play to ex: press their seutiments in a manner that would be heard and noticed by the Government, as an antidote to the and venom of the trouble-breeder- s howlers for special legislation. Our columns are open to gentlemen, who while differing from us in faith have feelings in common with us and with all true American citizens in favor of civil aud religious liberty, and the rights guaranteed to Utah under the Organic Act and the Constitution of 1873.

Lecture We had not sufficient space yesterday to notice the lecture of Gen. E. M. Barnum on Ancient Civilization, before the Yonng Men's Liteaary Association in the City Hall on Tuesday evening. And the press of other matter today renders it impossible to give the ex. tended notice the lecture deserves. It was a masterly effort and was ponounced by intellectual persons present the best lecture they bad ever heard in this city. A large audience assembled to hear the eloquent lecturer, and went away delighted and satisfied. We hope tho General will shortly visit us again when a much larger assembly will be pleased to sive him welcome. N From the this morning au aged couple, in company with their two sons, were among the passengers, returning to Conn., the place of their nativity. They left their village home twenty five all years ago, having traveled over-lanthe way to Oregon, where they settled and accumulated a large fortune. They say that during that time they never experienced a day's Bickness, and their the scenes greatest desire was to of their childhood, where they still have many friends, although advanced in life.

McFarlane have been appointed to labor in the Glasgow Conference, Scotland, under the presidency of Robt. McQuarrie, and Wm. Gectdes has been appointed to Australia, to succeed R.

From this morning's Ttilmne: The Bingham Canyon Railroad sixteen miles in lengtW was built at a cost of 111 psr mile, demonstrating the fact that t he great mineral resources of Utah can be developed in an extraordioary short time, by reason of our ability t9 build railroads at a cost but little above that of any ordinary wagon road. A Salt Lake restaurateur sent to Sau Francisco for two dozen terrapins, for the benefit of the. epicures of that city, who wero some days fasting in anticipation of a rich feast of turtle soup which had been promised.

A correspondent from Cache writes, Nov. 24th, that he was shown seme first-clabrushes which were manufactured iu Logau by S. Isaacke, wlvo does the whole of the work himself. The same correspondent complains of mail irregularities. As an instance, he was shown a letter that arrived at Logan on the 23d ult. from Bear Lake, the envelope bearing date Nov. 15. A man named Frederic Rennor, a native of Bavaria, aged thirty years, is missing. He was engaged in mining operations in Montana, Colorado and Utah Any information will bo thankfully received by Mrs. A. Freutler, of St. Louis, or Mrs. Clara Folkman, of Denver.

Garner, Amos Maycock. your correspondent and some others, are hiring labors on the road, not withstanding the cold shoulder fhown to us by the company which may have been an oversight. We are advancing in improvements, some, although our road from this place to Ogden City, is much below zero, and though some has been done much more has to be done, before we get a good traveling road from this place to your city. Many drive their hauling as long as possible, aud the tithing hay and doj net come as they, would, produc were bridges built over the 8th District canal and ditches graveled forded or made safe to that portion of our community, whose wagons are net the Bain or Studebaker. There is a first rate place to build a bridge on the canal, in question as the bunks are high and solid, but our worthy Road Supervisor,.Ias. Ward Esq.. says he is net the man to build it. There were propositions made to him last payers, to spring by some of the fill to and it up, and tas their go apply thus make a crossing safe to the traveling community. There also have been applications made and remade, to your correspondent to wri'e about it to tie Junction, to find out whose business it is, &c, but it seems to avail nothing, as the ltoad Supervisor informed him that he had seen that company and they did not like it agitated, but when we have to modnt those high banks with loads of lumber or wood, stalled in Jhe narrow pass with teams hitched out and gone home, it is not very pleasant or agreeable to find a wife or child over in the canal. Again, in the winter season to coutinue crossing ice frozen just enough to let horse and buggie through, aud banks each side sufficient to break the conveyance to pieces, is anything but agreeable. I am satisfied, were our neighbors in the 8th District conversant with the difficulties those encountered, they would remedy the evil, were it their business so to do, for they are an accommodating and fair dealing community, wishing to do as they would be done by. Our citizens are not building dwelling, houses this fall, but barns and fences seem to be the order of tbe day, and preparations for (1 we. ling houses next summer are apparent. II. C. Wardleigh, Principal of our day school, called ouyour correspondent, inviting him to a school examination, on the 28th ult., aud 1 must say I was agreeably surprised to see the advancement made, the' progress apparent in the pupils, which accounts for the refine en t and good, general deportment of the rising generation, which hows itself at the meetinghouse,in the streets, at the store, dinner table, iu conversation, etc.;, generally. At the examination the pupils were prepared for the different studies; there was no confusion or indifference. The exercises, consisting of grammar, arithui.tic, mathematics, spelling, reading, etc., were very creditable indeed, and worthy of .appreciation. Mr. Win dleigh is an efficient teacher; his mode of govern inout in school matters is different from tli.it of the old times. InatVad of slaying afar from school, the children desire to go, and think it a punishment to be-- elsewhere. Those examination", if repeated, will result in good, for many who do not value education will see its real worth, und want to be eugaged in it.
