In order to actor up so this object As i the March of the army to Salt Lake City through the Indian territory has had a Iki Wuerful effect in t unjust and unequal  straining the hostile feelings against the United states which existed among the indians in that Region and in securing emigrants to the far West i against their depredations. This will also be the 1 Means of establishing military posts and promoting settlements along the route. I recommend that the benefits of our land Laws and Preemption system be extended to the people of Utah by the establishment of a land office in that territory.

Necessary to withdraw irom the territory. To protect these civil of icons and a a Foril them As a posse com talus in the execution of the Laws in Case of need 1 ordered a detachment of the army so accompany them to Utah. The necessity for adopting these measures is n w demonstrated. On the september 1857, governor Young issued his proclamation in the style of an Independent Sovereign announcing his purpose to resist by Force of arms the Eury of the United states troops into our own territory of Utah. By this he required Ali the forces in the territory to hold themselves in readiness to March at a moment s notice to repel any and All such invasion/1 and is were informed by my last annual message that our minister had been instructed to occupy a Neutral position in the hostilities conducted by greatl3ritain and France against Canton. He was however at the same time Din noted to cooperate cordially with the British and French ministers in All peaceful measures to Sec ire by treaty those just concessions to foreign Coia Merce which the nations of the world had a right to demand. It was impossible for me to proceed further than this on my own authority without usurping the War making Power which under the Constitution to Longs exclusively to Congress. Besides after a careful examination of the nature land extent of our grievance i did not believe they were of such a pressing and aggravated character a a vex null have justified Congress in declaring War by our successive diplomatic representatives.
