From n recent letter to tho New York Times, from Halt Luke city, we citract ilia following: There are three governments in IJLdi, each of which extends over (he whole Ter- ritory, in form, if not in Territo- rial Government, organized by of the organic act uf Congress; the government of the so-called State of Dcccrct, of which llrigham Young is Governor; and the gov- ernment of the Church, of which lirighani 1'ouns is First President, the aueiuttJ of the Lord, and thu bujiremc head. The Church its control not (o things eternal and celestial, but extends to all tho relations of life and business; to fam- ily affairs, and to the fixing of the price of commodities for eale. Nothing is beneath care, and nothing ia above its This Church haa larger and more positive powers than v.tre by the Churuh of Itomu in the dark ages. So far as relates to power, it by irre- vocible revelation, been placed in the hand of ono man, the Lord's unuointcd. The Terriloiial Ooieminent is n fiction; it is vitalily and power. Kone bat Mor- mons are sjnt to thu legislature. If the Governor XLlO'-s laws the Legisla- ture of the Slate of Dcserct can pass them, and Governor Young gives them Im sanction rnd tuey art- laws for the State, when they failed lo be for the Territory. The laws of the State of Descrct arc not published, but kept among the secret archives. A Territorial Supreme Court was an in- convcniunt thing until the ingenuity or in- spiration of tho anointed, aided by the flei- ibltf morality of a Territorial Governor, the inconvenience, when the bhaeklea of the law fell from every man in thr Tcrritiry. A court of paramount jur- isdiction, called the Probate Court, was es- tablished by Territorial legislation, and Congress haa never iiitcrferred with it. The court and its juries can be trusted, and the Supremo Court is without business. s A M i i YAJL-V lloataurnnt nnrt Saloon, s UlucA. niHimore itrcct. CLOTHES WRIJfGER'.

As I rods up to the door there came from the cabin three negro wc- men and eight or ten children. In this ono small room U., with her husband and chil- dren, were living, in addition to the others. She was lying'on a small bed in front of tho door, exposed fo every passing gust of wind. Just above her head was a wide, opjn spica at the cavca of the house, through which whistled a strong draught. She had not taken a particle of medicine since first taken feiek; her hearing was nearly gone; bhu could scarcely articulate, and her poor, shriveled, wasted hands, were of the icy coldness of death. Xever ihall I forget her team nf gratitude when fhe saw a 'home said, 'Thank God, thank God.' Aa I remembered alt the affection between us from our childhood up to the, time of her release from bondage, I could only ssy, and weep too.

Though she hai gnno with her husband to be freo and independent, I could but an- ticipate her future with sorrow, and regret, on her account, that she had left a kind mas- ter aud mistress, comfortable home, and the attentions which had nlwajs been shown her in eickncaa."

A party of Irishmen once conlraclcd to clear a very deep well, but having none of the usual conveniences employed for Fuch purposes, they were al n loss to get one of (lie party on a ledge near the bottom, to as- sist in tho proccsv of getting out water, mud, At last Jimmy Phclan, a hcr- culi'aii fellow, proposed plan which was coniidercd just the __ Jimmy was to clubp his biir fists around the windlass; then another of tho parly was lo clamber down and hold on by hn legs and so on until the last man t-hould be able to leap upon the Ictlgc.

With bared breast and blecvei tucked up, Jimmy seized the round portion of the windhi-i directly over the well and swung himself over. Another of the pirly crept donn Jimmy's body ami grasj-rd him by the boots. After several more had followed suit, and tho human chain began to stretch far into the well, Jimmy became lo one great difficulty; the wind- less did not afford him a pnod bnhl in the Dri4 place, and the weight was gelling intol- erable.

The following will be read with interest by the curious I will mention but one Or two items. A graphic writer upon Japan Bomo time since made the world acquainted with tho most graceful and beautiful, and at the sitbe tinie wonderful, of all the feats performed by'.thc' jugglers of that country. They were too top and butterfly trick. A top is set spin- x ning in the air, on its descent it is caught on the point of u sword, wheru it whirls merrily; then it is brought along the keen edge to the handle then it renews its flight to bo again caught, nnd ultimately it ia scut, like minaturo Blondin, n silken thread which is invisible to the audieuce some- times it descends tho clack sometimes as- cends tho bill, but ia always sure of foot, and waltzes its' way over tho narrow path, from the bores of a theatre to the back of the stage, aa readily' as crossing a drawing room. The butterflies arc cut out of many colored paper, and fly about cs if endowed with life. In obedience to the wars of a fan they fly high or low; now they flutter over a lady's bouquet, now" they light upon tho spray of a wreath, now they gyrate, mott- lil.v, around a gas jet. This feat alone 13 sufficient to take the town by storm.
