Brigham Young a prisoner in his own house... Fate of the slaves on the slaver Echo...



Item # 683647

September 08, 1858

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Sept. 8, 1858  Page 3 has: "The Prospect In Utah" which reports on the rather dire prospects of peace with the Mormons. One bit notes: "...Brigham Young and his elders have overshot their mark and are feeling the recoil of their own guns. They probably thought that the government would leave Mormonism to itself..." with much more.
Also on page 3 is: "The Recaptives Of The Echo" which was a rather infamous slave ship recently captured. The article is  lengthy & notes in part: "...Though the return of the captured Africans may be right in principle, it is certainly of doubtful humanity for they will only be thrown into the hands of new oppressors & will be sold again and again..." with much more.
Four pages, nice condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
