A GEKTH.K OJi THU SITUATION. The following correspondence we clip from the Omaha Jfcrold :' Oodkn, Utah, Sept. 2'.', i7". To the Editor of the Ilemld : Unusual complication exists here. The United States judiciary have set aside, you may say, all Territorial laws in existence, and they will be governed solely by the United Slates code, which they often interpret to suit their owu special inclination. In a case nuw pending, where the municipal authorities authori-ties of Salt Lake City, according to their city ordinances, desrroyed the contents of- an unlicensed liquor establishment, estab-lishment, the Uuitcd States Marshal summoned none to make up the two juries but Mormon J mioses or Gentiles, Gen-tiles, all of whom were known to be in favor of judgments rendered against the city. You would have beeu amused, amu-sed, Mr. Editor, to have witnessed personally per-sonally the ways of justice and juris-pruueuce juris-pruueuce displayed, here in the far western country, on theoccaaiuu of the Said men being impannelied and sworn in to act as jurors.. They were a set of very ienoraiit men, but the Chief Jus tice overruled all objections by the defence, de-fence, and accepted them as good and lawful meu. . Your space would not permit me to state circumstances that transpired here, which would bo also too ridiculous, and iucrediblc to mention.- One fact, however, I eiiunot omit to allude to : One of the jurors, before he was sworn, was asked by the defence ii'his miud was not prejudiced in the case now to be tried. Vc. "Yes, much, so,'-' was the answer. . lie was then asked by the prosecution if good evidence coutd not remove such prejudice. preju-dice. ''No, sir," was the reply. Governor Gov-ernor Shaffer thereupon issued proclamations procla-mations appointing P. E. Connor .Major General over the militia, ordered all arms to he given up by the Mormons, Mor-mons, and permits no armed gatherings by the people, even in cases of sudden outbreaks by Indians, to which the people of the Territory are much exposed ex-posed iu many places. P. K. Connor is veiy hostile to the Mormons, and the Governor has begun to remove other officers of the 'territory ; and in i few days, according to what, is said and expressed, there will not be left even a water-master or a fence-viewer, or any other officers elected by the people under Territorial laws mid regulations. regu-lations. The Governor will bless us Gentiles and Mormon Judases with offices. It will bring debt on the Territory, Ter-ritory, of which it was always clear. But since Congress has iailcd to solve the vexed Mormon question, the Governor Gov-ernor and aids are bound to Jo it. Alexander the Great found some way to untie tl.e mysterious knot, and so will his Excellency iu case of the Mormon Mor-mon problem. Said proclamations seem to have created a ueib spirit among the I nited States soldiery here. A few days since, about filly soldiers descended on a small village, called Provo, in the silent hours of midnight, fully armed, itc, and 'Spread honor among the citizens and marked, their path with destruction.

Since the packed juries were sworn and charged by the Court at ' Salt Lake, tho citizens munilest great inditlurenoo about learning any further news cf Court procrecdings, as judgment against the city is a foregone conclusion, but an appeal will be inndc to the U. S. Supreme Court, which, however, the officials will try to delay and hinder if possible. Mr. Hollinter is rejoicing indeed. lie has finally been admitted as a veritable correspondent corres-pondent of tho Chicago Tribune, whose precious columns will be enriched en-riched by his pen. I am not hereby favoring the Mormon faith, and especially espe-cially polygamy. Who could a.'eepl such? But 1 would at any timn "give the devil his due," aud don't like to sec gentlemen condescend to his level. The Mormons have rights which should be respcoted iu a republic of bii-h character. Their industry, thrift, aobriety and desire for general advancement can no, longer be ignored, ig-nored, liow-ver objectionable their peculiar religious views may appear, to us. We live in an age of tolerance. I've been here for years. The lilc and property of a stramter is protected bv the Mormon police as much as if he lived in Broadway, N. Y. All indignation indig-nation from the Mormons felt by the Gentiles has invariably been caused by invading the domestic circles of men, and seducing, or trying to seduce females, fe-males, and such has been done by nl-venturers nl-venturers wdio have homes everywhere. Thoy arc but little belter than "Holder Ruffians." Jilill, their testimony, nnd the testimony of Mormon J udascs, elc. , is admissable to our republican party now in power, who, like I hit King, can do no harm, while a Mormon of good sound sense would not be heard. One of the li i .-t questions put to n witness summoned before a Congressional Committee is this: "Arc you a Mormon Mor-mon or a friend to the Mormons?" George the Third's Parliament condescended conde-scended to summons the illustrious Franklin twice to hear him on the si.lc of the despised colonists. In mh!i, and In all oilier case, our Republican paity will only hear (he one side of any question if I hey ran possibly avoid the other, but they will not rule the nation forever, I hope.

I have already seen great tendencies in such a direction. But, for the last year, it don't seem as though a collector collec-tor of revenue, or any other officer who is duly respected, have time to state their special business to the poor Mormons for talking about bayonets, long rained cannons, etc.; etc Please forward the Daily Hrrald for a while for the currency inclosed.

I would spend all I own for my country in any emergency, but not. a dollar will I spend, or run any risk, to carry on a petty contractor's war to enrich a few of my friends.
