False arrest rumors of Brigham Young...

Item # 690247

October 05, 1857

NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, N.Y., Oct. 5, 1857 A page 4 item has: "THE ARREST OF BRIGHAM YOUNG CONTRADICTED", which includes in part: "There was a rumor in California that Brigham Young had been arrested on the charge of treason and was on his way to Washington in charge of the United States Marshal. This turned out to be a fabrication."
Additionally, the article below covers the residents of Carson Valley distancing themselves from the Mormons saying they, "have no political communications with the authorities at Salt Lake, and, during the Winter, could have no communication if they wished it."
This issue is complete in 8 pages, a bit closes-trimmed along the bottom, but in overall nice condition.
