Til 12 TERllITOIlIES. The "ring" onjan at Salt Lake baa just opened its bleared and eyes te the fact that section 1,845 df the Revised Statutes of Utah, approved last June, gives Territorial JLcjasliituved power to pass bills oTer tho Governor's veto. When we this provision of the Revised Statutes, several months ago, the foul birds from Kansas croaked out jibes yice-puff-e- d ed at the Junction for its discovery of what they called "a mare's nest." they are startled off their perch and feel weakened in the claws. That clause in the R. S. has done it. Now a case of clause against claws, and other birds of prey feel the effects It's thereof. The Kansas scallawags employed so much time in tho scavenger busi- against the legally elected officers, wasn't worth the paper or parchment ou which i was written? V- Section 1887 provides that if any United States offieer is absent from the dutiei of his office, no salary shall bo paid him for the year during which such absence occurs. This leaves no time for officers drawing Uncle Sam's monf-- to go to Washington and wire-wor-k fjr legislation against the people whom they for are paid to serve, nor to log-ro- ll bills to bring them additional fees. How do the birds of prey like these provisions, take them altogether? Are they not at least equivalent to the mischief they imaginod they had put up for tha "Mormons" in the shape of the "Poland" bill. We rather think so, and will take them as an offset, acknowledging the hand of Providence in all these enactments, and believing that the issues, are in the control of Omnipotence. Yet the people of this Territory are frequently, charged with illiberally, and the uninformed imagine that "Mormonism'' is the State Church of Utah. Such a notion is as false as it is absurd, ar.d has sprang from such wilful fabrications as the following, clipped from thh riDg org.n at Salt Lake, which calls itsclt the Tribune.

The horde of adventurers repre nted by that disreputable eheet would havo this whole Territory at the mercy of ne officiil appointed by aibitrary Federal power without any consultation of their wishes, but rather in opposition to their ex pressed desire?. They wish to per pctrate the monstrous and despotic authority of a stranger, witbjan evil reputation from his former official post, to destroy ,by a stroke of his pen or the redemption Rut tho carpet-ba- oue-ma- withholding of hisbignature, tie wo k nf the people's representatives from all parts of the Territory for a whole session allowed but once in two years Aud they call themselves "Liberals." They profess to bo Republicans. And tUey want to redeem the people of Utah from bondage ! It is evident that if they had their will, they would tio the whole community up iu one string and put that string into the hands of the Governor, and then they would all fight to ace who should be Governor. The section alluded to is simply an act of justice to the Territories Rut it is an indication that their an omalous coudition is understood and deplored, and that there is a prospect of further steps towards giving them the rights of American citizens.which are denied them uuder the Territorial system. The Revised Statutes have other provisions, which will make the foul birds of Kansas blink and shed their feathers. Ry Section 1344 the power ot' the Governor is limited to such offices as he has the right to nominate or appoint. Elective officers need not ask him for a commission, and it isn't worth anything if he gives it.
