Uul our New York thieves are uot only criminals that urc in lrfpM«lion. That "iwin relic of barbarism" is iu danger, imminent danger of a downfall. Riig- bam YouuR.ils prophet, is a fugitive, Ilaw- kins, one of bis prime ministers, is a convicted criminal iiud thrse years service in tne penitentiary is his punishment; better bave been for lift;. ludicttnents have been found against Brigham Young's son for murder and oilier crimes. Oilers are also in equal danger. From all ol which it is evident [bat a crisis s impending mormondoui. The march of civilization mado great inroads upon tbla peculiar in ilitutiou within the last two years. Tho "Gentiles" are fast out numbering the Saints. The 1'ueiDc Hailroad was the death blow of Mormondom, but its disniples escaped their impendim; f«ie till now. Now we hope- the Isst vcsiige of polygamy Will bu swept nway, and the nation be freed from this foul stain whicb it baa long harbored within ila borders.
