SKETCH OF MORMONISM.|
Joseph Smith, the founder of the organization, was born in Sharon, Windsor
county, Vermont, December 23d, 1805. His father's name was Joseph and his
mother's Lucy; and their family consisted of six sons and three daughters of
whom the future prophet was the third son. When he was in his fourteenth
year his father moved to Manchester, Ontario county, New York, having
previously resided in Palmyra in the same county. While in Manchester,
during a religious revival, he was, as he states in his autobiography, the
subject of religious impressions, during which, while praying in the woods
one day, he had the first vision, two glorious personages appearing to him,
who communed with him. Some three and a half years afterwards, on the 21st
of September, 1823, he had a second vision and received a communication
relative to the plates upon which the Book of Mormon was inscribed. These
plates, his history states, he obtained possession of on the 22d of
September, 1827, from the place of their deposit, on the West side of a hill
convenient to Manchester, the village where he resided. The plates were
enclosed in a b ox, covered with a stone, and had been there for some 1400
years, having been buried by an ancient inhabitant of this continent named
Moroni. The characters on them had been principally inscribed by Mormon,
hence the title of the work.|
Being poor and with the work of translating the records before him, in his exigencies he obtained assistance from a gentleman named Martin Harris; and in April, 1829, he made the acquaintance of Oliver Cowdery, a school teacher, who became his amanuensis, and the work of translating commenced immediately. The Book of Mormons, was put in the hands of the printers; but before it was published a church was organized on the 6th day of April, 1830, in the house of Mr. Peter Whitmer, Fayette, Seneca county, New York. Thus the Empire State not only produced the plates, from which the book was translated, but can claim the honor of the organization of that society which is the greatest problem of the century. Six members composed this church on its organization, a small beginning for the thousands into which it has grown and the power and influence it has acquired in the short space of thirty-eight years. The Book of Mormon was published, preaching and proselytizing were prosecuted with vigor, though the missionaries of the new faith were mostly uneducated, and churches were raised up in a number of places in a few months.
Early in 1831 a settlement was made at Kirtland, Ohio, and this may be called the first "gathering place" of the church - a central point to

wards which all who received the faith should converge. In July of the same
year a lot was selected and dedicated, for a Temple, at Independence, Jackson
county, Missouri. Here a printing press was set in operation and a
periodical, the Evening and Morning Star, was published by Judge W. W.
Phelps. Trouble broke out in Independence between the settlers of the new
faith and others inhabiting that region, and a mob tore down the printing
office, tarred and feathered some of the prominent Mormons, abused others,
and inflicted losses on the fraternity, in the destruction of property, to a
very large amount. The Mormons were obliged to leave, and most of them fled
into and settle in Clay county, in the same state. The Jackson mob
influenced the citizens of Clay county, and after a time the refugees had
again to leave, this time settling in unoccupied territory, which received
the name of Caldwell county, as well as in Davis and other adjacent counties,
in Missouri. In three years they made wonderful improvements in their new
location, for industry has ever been a prominent characteristic of the
organization. At this time they were viewed with suspicion by many
pro-slavery citizens there, who classed them as abolitionists, many of them
having come from states where the abolition theory was gaining ground. For
this cause, and because their industrious habits conflicted with the
dissipated customs of a class always too well known in frontier settlements,
as well as for religious reasons, troubles again broke out and the entire
Mormon community was compelled to leave the state. Their next settlement was
at Commerce, Hancock county, Illinois, where in a short time they built the
city of Nauvoo, which was duly chartered by the state Legislature. They had
built a temple at Kirtland, which was an immense effort in its size and
costliness for so small and poor a body of people as they then were. But in
Nauvoo one was commenced on a scale proportionately greater to correspond
with their increased numbers, wealth and importance. This they finished, but
before it was completed, their Prophet, Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum
Smith, the Patriarch of the Church, were murdered in Carthage, where they
were imprisoned on a charge of treason. The Missouri enemies of the Prophet
and his followers had never ceased their efforts against him and his people,
preferring charge after charge which were disposed of by the courts, he
always obtained an acquittal; until this last charge, when the mob would not
wait for the result of a trial, but shot him and his brother dead while in
prison under guard, wounding at the same time Elder John Taylor, one of the
Twelve Apostles. They held Governor Ford's pledge for their safety at the
time. This was on the 27th of June, 1844.|
Soon after the Mormons were compelled to leave Illinois, and took up their line of march in February, 1846, for the then almost unknown west. That Fall and Winter the main body of the refugee Saints located in the neighborhood of the Missouri River, near what is now Council

Bluffs and Omaha, where temporary settlements were formed. Next Spring,
President Brigham Young started westward with 143 pioneers, broke a road,
forded streams and built bridges from the Missouri over the great plains and
through the Rocky Mountains, arriving in Salt Lake Valley on the 21st of
July, 1847. As soon after as possible the main body followed, a provisional
State government was formed, gentlemen were sent to Washington to represent
the new colony; and in 1849 a Territorial government was granted to them for
the Territory of Utah. Since that time they have prospered exceedingly,
their cities, towns and settlements number about two hundred with a
population of nearly 150,000 souls. Besides these there are branches of the
Church in many parts of the United States; and in Europe the communicants of
the faith number nearly 20,000. Their missionary efforts have been directed
to every country where religious toleration would permit them to carry and
disseminate their views. Most European and some Asiatic nations, as well as
Australia and several of the Pacific Islands, have given proselytes to the
faith; and almost all the old members of the Church are native born citizens
of the Union, which still adds largely to the believers in the latter-day
The Church is organized with a First Presidency of three; a Council of Twelve Apostles; a Patriarch; a quorum of High Priests of indefinite number; sixty-four quorums of Seventies; and Elders' Quorum; a Presidency of three and a High Council of twelve for each Stake of Zion; a Presiding Bishop for the Church with two Counselors; a Bishop for each Ward; a Priests' quorum; a Teachers' quorum; and a Deacons quorum.

TERRITORY OF UTAH
Utah occupies an area of about 65,000 square miles, which includes large tracts of wild and mountainous country. It extends from the 37th to the 42d parallels of north latitude; and from the 109th to the 114th degrees of longitude. About 130,000 acres are under cultivation; of which in 1867, over 80,000 were planted in cereals; nearly 2,000 in sugar cane, from which molasses was made; some 6,800 in root crops; nearly 200 in cotton, 900 in apple orchards; 1,000 in peaches, 75 in grapes; and 195 in currents; while 30,000 were in meadow, of this about 94,000 acres had to be irrigated, at a cost during the year, in making canals, dams for irrigation purposes, cleaning out ditches, etc., of nearly $247,000. The result of the grasshopper visitation in 1868 presents details far below the average of other years. Even in 1867, the loss to the cereals, and part of the fruit and root crops, averaged over one sixth of the whole, as compared with former years and with the promise for harvest before the insects appeared.
Correct returns of mineral operations in the Territory have not been made. Gold has been found in small quantities in various parts of the Territory, as the result of extensive prospecting, but not to an extent that pays for outlay, although during the summer of 1868 a number of men were at work in Bingham's Canon, in the Oquirrh range, on the west side of Salt Lake Valley. Silver has also been found in the Wasatch Mountains, east side of the Valley, in Cottonwood Canon, but it has not paid remuneratively for working.
Iron ore exists in vast quantities in several parts of the Territory. In Iron county, works were erected in 1852, and, a small quantity of iron was made, but the lack of proper fuel compelled a cessation of the works, which were ultimately abandoned. In Summit county, iron ore exists to a considerable extent.
On the Pinto, Iron county, the Union Iron Company commenced operations I June, 1868, with Ebinezer Hanks, president; S. M. Blair, Peter Shirts, and Robert Richey, directors, and Chapman Duncan, agent. On the first of January, 1869, they had two furnaces in operation, with another in course of erection; and had a fair prospect of being successful.
Coal is found extensively, but principally in the neighborhood of Coalville, in Summit county. Fresh veins were discovered up Echo Canon during the construction of the grade for the U. P. R. R., in August of 1868. An excellent quality of coal is also obtained in Sanpete, which is used extensively for blacksmithing purposes.

TERRITORY OF UTAH
Copper, lead, bismuth, limestone, etc., exist in considerable quantities in the Territory.
The following, with some slight and necessary corrections, is taken from the Great West and Union Pacific Railroad Guide, published by The American News Company, New York:
"Settlements were made in Utah as early as July 1947. It originally formed part of Mexico, but by the treaty of Guadaloupe Hidalgo, in 1848, it was ceded to the United States. the comparatively small beginning in 1847 has grown and lengthened, until now the settlements extend to a distance of three hundred miles north and south; and whatever a valley can be found that can be watered, there you will find the industrious, uncomplaining settlers, making an honest living in a way most congenial to nature and most conducive to health, by the cultivation of the soil. Not only are the ordinary vegetables and cereals produced, but in the southern part of the Territory they are raising cotton, the product of free white labor, thereby removing the objection of some of our eastern friends to the use of this necessary article. In a word the desert has been converted into the fruitful field, and the frowns of nature exchanged for smiles of gladness.
"The country for the most part is mountainous, interspersed with valleys, which can only be cultivated by irrigation.
"The melting of the snow in the mountains affords in ordinary seasons sufficient water to cultivate the valleys successfully.
"The summers are very warm and dry; the winters generally mild and open. The fall of snow is light in the valleys and heavy in the mountains. The climate may be said to be invigorating and healthful, fevers and pulmonary complaints being almost unknown.
"The soil, which, to a very great extent, is formed of the mountain washings, consists principally of gravelly loam, and is well adapted to the growth of wheat and other cereals.
"Wheat is indeed the great staple product of the Territory. In good seasons, the average yield per acre is about twenty-five bushels. Sixty to seventy bushels are not unfrequently obtained; and in some instances as high as eighty bushels have been raised from a single acre.
"Oats, barley, rye, and flax are cultivated with great success.
"All kinds of vegetables grow astonishingly large and of a superior quality.
"In Washington county, in the southern part of the Territory, large fields of cotton are cultivated, the growth of which will be sufficient in a few years to supply all the wants of the people. In 1863 quite a considerable quantity of cotton was exported to the States at remunerative prices.
"Madder, indigo, figs, grapes, and other tropical fruits are also raised in this part of the country.

"Timber is scarce, and being found only in the mountains and 'kanyons," is very difficult of access. As a consequence of this. houses are costly to build, and rents are proportionately high.
"The climate and soil of Utah are particularly adapted to the production of fruit; and her citizens, no doubt, feeling the promptings of an internal as well as external nature, have improved their opportunities for cultivation. Apples, pears, peaches, apricots, plums, grapes, currants and other fruits are produced, not only in great abundance, but of a superior quality.
In addition to flouring and other mills necessary for the support of the Territory, woolen and cotton factories are being established in different parts of the country for home supplies."
The property value of Utah, according to the Territorial Auditor's report, for 1868, was $10,533,872; and the amount of tax assessed on it, for the same year, $52,669. Of these amounts, Salt Lake county owned property assessed at $4,379,652.80; and was taxed, for Territorial purposes, $21,898.26. The Territory has no debt; but in the Treasurer's hands, at the close of the last fiscal year, was a balance of $17,000, not dawn for the purposes for which it had been appropriated.
There are in the Territory 186 school districts, having 226 schools, on the rolls of which are the names of about 13,000 pupils. The teachers number 306, who received for the year $61,839.
The population of the Territory is estimated at 130,000.
The government is vested in Executive, Judicial and Legislative departments.
The Executive consists of a Governor and Secretary; the Judicial of a Chief Justice and two Associate Justices; and the Legislative, of an Assembly composed of thirteen Councilors and twenty-six Representatives.

SALT LAKE CITY
Salt Lake City is situated at the foot of a spur of the Wasatch mountains, its northern limits running up to the "bench," or elevated portion of the valley, which reaches to the base of the mountains. It can be approached from the east by two canons - Emigration canon, through which nearly all travel formerly passed, and which debouches in the valley between three and four miles from the city; and Parley's canon, through which the stage road runs. The mouth of the latter canon is some six miles from the city, in a southeasterly direction, and the road between them runs past a tannery, two woolen mills, and a paper mill, all worked by the water of the creek that dashes down the canon hollow. The scenery in each is bold and impressive, the mountainsides of these passes in the Wasatch range rising with abruptness from extremely narrow gorges, and covered on their summits with pine, maple, oak, and other kinds of timber, extensively used for lumbering purposes and fire wood. Nearly thirty miles to the south the mountain range juts across the valley, partially separating it from Utah valley, which contains the lake of the same name. To the west of the valley rises the Oquirrh range of mountains; and north of them, about twenty miles from the city, in a westerly direction, lies Salt Lake, with

several mountainous islands jutting out of its bed, which have been utilized for herd grounds, sheep ranges, and salt boiling. The streets in the main portions of the city are laid out at right angles, and run north and south, and east and west. They are 132 feet wide, with rivulets of water running gurgling down each street, used for irrigation, and for culinary purposes where wells are not sunk. The culture of shade trees, which have a rapid and healthy growth from these streams, is much encouraged; and as almost every lot has an orchard, when the summer foliage clothes fruit and shade trees with a full covering of green, the picture which the city presents is then exceedingly pleasant and beautiful. The blocks contain ten acre each and were originally laid out to contain eight lots to the block; but the growth of business, and other causes, have changed this design in the centre of the city, where the buildings are erected closer together. In the 20th ward, the northeast portion of the city, which is a survey of more recent date than the first settled part, the blocks contain only two and a half acres each, and the streets are proportionately narrow; and a portion of the 17th and 19th wards, in the northwest part, contains crooked and irregular streets, caused by the peculiar character and irregularities of the ground.
The city contains about 25,000 inhabitants. It has several tanneries, grist mills, the woolen factories mentioned before, the paper mill, a pail factory, steam wood working factories, furniture factories, large adobe yards, brick yards, etc., etc. Its City Hall, not long built, cost $70,000, yet the corporation is entirely free from debt.
