The peli'ton oc Mormon women in favor of polygamy, reported from Washington, i. an artifice of Brig.-ham Young. But. -to the Government officers heed this document, tliev shoad ascertain how many legiiima e wives have sign ed it. It will be found, wo doubt not, that few if an Muc h have dishonored their womanhood by pairing tbei names on the r3por. Of course, the illegitimate- wivos, concubines of the Mormon harems, would sign it heartily enough. They havo usurped the places and rights of the legal wives; and the administration of tho law, by J usiieo MeKean, vindicates the latter by ousting the former. This petition is then simply an at tempjt of the guilty to oppress the innocent. It should have no more significance with the Government or tho public than a memorial of the prosti tutes of Washington City against tho execution of the laws of the city for the suppresion of licentiousness.
