The news that "Bishop" John D.'
Lee, of the Mormon Church, has de
termined to turn State's evidence against
his accomplices in the Mountain
Meadows massacre, September 18, 1857,
on account of the efforts of the faithful
to impede his defense and thus sacrifice
him that others might escape, is by no
means unlikely, says the World, and it is
.probable that Lee will soon publish a
full and critical statement of the terrible
affair. It will bo looked forward to
with much interest. The following story
of the massacre has never before been
told : .. , . .. , y ,
According to the Mormons the train
of immigrants, so ruthlessly massacred
contained several families from that part
of -Missouri whence the Mormons had
been driven ; one member claimed- to
luive" been at Carthage when the
prophet, Smith, -was killed, and another
displayed a pistol which, he said, "had
f;liot Jog Smith and was loaded for old
J righam, ' m These . in the then excited
stato of Mormon religiouseeling; whose
first element was a superstitious rever
enco for tho living prophet, and a burn1
ing desiroto ayengo the martyrdom of
tho dead one, would 'furnish at least a
pretext for popular violence. Again,, the
train contained several Arkansans, neigh
bors of McLean, the man who killed the
apostle, Parley P. Pratt, for robbing him
of his wife, and one of their number was
said to have been concerned in the kill
ing. Among tho minor reasons that the
Mormons declared had excited hostility
against the train were the naming of two
oxen "Brigham " and " Heber " (the
latter after Heber C. Kimball, first coun
cillor) ; the use of profane language, an
olfunso against the Territorial laws, for
which, indeed, it was sought to arrest
some of the immigrants at Cedar City ;
tho harboring of apostate Mormons ; the
wanton destruction of fences and grain
and killing of stock belonging to the
paints, and the poisoning of a spring at
Corn Creek, to kill Indians. Another
potent reason may have been found in
tho excited state of the Mormons at the
approach of Albert Sidney Johnston's
1- army, and their intention, after having
been driven from Illinois and Missouri,
to fight for Utah.
On the other hand evidence is adduced
to show that the immigrants were orderly
and respectable folk ; that they held
religious services on each Sabbath, and
that i the. poisoning of the spring was a
hhcer invention and a physical impossi
bilityindeed the Indians at Corn Creek
afterwards gave them thirty bushels of
corn, tho solitary evidence of kindness
that they received in Utah.
Theso circumstances impartially re
lated, the character of the hostile de
monstrations may next be examined.
At Salt Lake they were refused pro-1
visions and ordored away. Similar re
fusals met, them all along the southern
route, and they were summarily driven
from the customary camping grounds at
at least two . stations, so that they were
literally starvinsr in a fertile land, at
harvest time, in a season of unusual
abundance. Inasmuch as the Mormons
were invariably hospitable to such trains,
thjs circumstance indicates that the
universal hostility towards this train was
not .spontaneous, but had its origin in
official circles. Indeed we find that
George A.-Smith, now first councillor,
had preceded the train and warned the
Mormons, junior penalty of expoinmuni
cation, hot to aid its members! This the
Mormons admit, though the motive they
declare jto have been that of making
preparation for , possible emergencies.
At Cora Creek Smith met the train, and
when asked advice by its leaders as
to ,& 'camping ground, recommended
Cane Spring, the spot where they were
attacked. - " -

seventeen immigrants and wounding fif

September 10, 1857. The immigrants
promptly formed a corral and, throwing
up earthworks, repulsed the savages, of
whom three were wounded, twr mortal

at Cedar, and by Bishop Bigbee anointed ,
with the sacred oil on which, in connec
tion with prayer and the laying-on of
hands, orthodox Mormons depend for
the healing , of wounds and curing of
diseases. Ah Indian runner brought
back the news of the repulse to Cedar,
and militia were sent on. Subsequently
Lee called for more re-enforcements from
Cedar and Washington. Meanwhile

The other day I went on a wild duck
hunt with my interpreter and one guard.
We started , early, and, proceeding
through the rice fields for some distance
crossed a low line of hills lying to the
north, and passed up a fertile valley
about four miles. Here was a village
where the people had mado prepara
tions for a grand duck hunt in anticipa
tion of our coming. Near by was a
small lake, snug among the hills and
near the base of the mountain called the
"Dragon's Clan."
It was a most picturesque place,
with a pino grove skirting the margin of
the water, and clumps of bushes and
reeds scattered along in various places.
The entire surface of the lake was
covered with ducks, while clouds of them

The Indians were at once put on their
track. One was killed while sleeping
between the Clara and Bio Virgin; the
letter was taken from him and some time
afterwards destroyed, though its contents
are known. Forty miles further on the
other two messengers were taken i
stripped and made to run for their lives;
One, wounded sorely, made no effort to
escape, and was tortured and burned to
death ; the other, though wounded, dis
tanced his pursuers. The Vagas Indians
whom he met fifty-four miles further od
gave him some clothing and food; eight
teen miles beyond, at the Cottonwood,
two ; Calif ornians,, jthe 'brothers' Young,
gave him a horse. He, however, was so
much exhausted that he took the desr
perate resolve of returning with themj

and his throat cut.
On the 18th the ummigrants ,were in

them. They laid down their arms and

great many. De Murska, also, is impro

Preservation of Timber.
For the preservation of timber from
decay, so J many and different methods
have been introduced, that the best en

doubt as to which is on the whole to be
preferred.! t It is, however, found that
one of the most effective of these curi-
ous processes consists iu subjecting the
wood to a temperature above the boiling
point of water, and below 300 deg. Fah.,
come with his gun and join in the sport.
The men had constructed low mounds
of pine branches, resembling Esquimaux
huts, along the edge of . the : lake, and
at the points most frequented by the
fowls. As soon as each one of us got
fairly settled, either under a mound or a
tree or bush, we began to blaze away at
the innocent ducks which lay in thick
masses before us. As the first shot
echoed among the hills, a myriad of
quacking creatures rose in one great
cloud from the surface of the water, and
for a time the air was completely filled
with them.
I never before saw such a spectacle;
the sky seemed darkened with feather
ed fugitives, and the noise made by
their wings was like that of a mighty
rushing wind. Especially wild was the
noise as one flock after another wheeled
directly over my head; then they sud
denly turned a short curve, their white
breasts flashed for a moment in the sun,
and the rapid motion of their wings made
a breeze like a great fan upon the face.
They had not learned yet what the
sound of a gun meant, and as no person
was to be seen they ere long settled
again quietly on the water.
Another volley soon started them up
again, however, and they rose into the
air, leaving many of their dead and
wounded companions on the surface of
the lake. Now their flight became swift
and broken, and as they passed close
over our heads we fired mdiscriminately
into their midst, causing the flocks to
scatter in frightened confusion. The
poor things knew not what to do; the
lake had always been their quiet home,
and they knew not whither to flee. So,
as none of their cruel enemies were in
sight, down they came again upon the
death laden surface of the water. They
were completely tired out, and as shot
after shot skipped along beside' them,
they only "ducked" their heads and
remained where they were. The firing
continued the whole morning, and the
waters around their formerly peaceful
retreat were reddened with the fruits of
the bloody slaughter.
At one time during the day, while
somewhat withdrawn from the party, I
heard a peculiar " whir:r " of something
in the air, and turning quickly saw a
bullet strike the bank beside me. A
shower of mud was spattered over me,
and at a little distance a Japanese man
