H. GODEY A CO. EVENING STAR. [comiriiicATiP. Editor of the Star: Please permit me to reply to Colonel Benton's last published speeob, wherein he slanders Colonel Step toe (Captain he ha? it) and Brigham Young, with reference to the Governorship of Utah Being personally acquainted with Colonel Steptoe, Got. Young, and all the proceeding*, justice to the parties assayed, requires a cor rection from my pen, of the falsehoods of Col. Benton with reference to them. In the fall of 1864 Lieut Col. Steptoe ar rived at Great Salt Lake City, Utah, in com mand of several companies, on his way to California The season being far advanced on his arrival, he went into winter quarters i Col. Steptoe wa> received as an officer and a gentleman by Gov Young, and the people there; and indeed he never foifeited that confidence by act or deed during his stay, which was some six or seven months. During Ccl Steptoe's stay in Great Salt Lake City President Pierce, who was, and had been con tinually beset since he first came into the Presidential chair, by political demagogues and office seekers, like Col. Benton, (not by the gallant Col Steptoe, for he never applied) to remove Gov. Young, or to appoint some one else to fill his place. At last President Pierre consented to appoint another Governor for Utah, as Gov. Young's term of office had then already expired Accordingly President Pierce officially informed Col Steptoe that he had been appointed Governor of Utah if he would accept the office. On the news of Col Steptoe's appointment reaching Great Salt Lake City, I heard Gov ernor Young publicly express himself before thousands, in theso words : ltThat there was not a rran living outside the Church of fhicJi he was a member that he mould prefer for the Governor of Utah before Col. Step toe ; and that if he accepted the, appointment he (Gov. Youug) mould take ?ff 'its hat to him and salute him irith a band of music, for he considered him a gentleman"?and all the people said Amen. But Col. Steptoe, caring little for the (ffice, well knowing that the emoluments of the Governorship of Utah for a few years were a mere nominal consider ation compared to the emoluments from his position in tho arrnv, (which he would have nad to resign if ne accepted the Gover norship,) and also knowing the general feeling existing in the community there, that they would prefer Brigham Young to any other man to govern them, he (Col Steptoe' wrote to President Pierce declining to accept the office. Whereupon Brigham Young retained the Governorship of Utah, and ha-, ever since his term of office expired in lbi-4, under the organic act creating said Territory, which ?ays that " the Governor shall retain his office until his successor is appointed and qualified " Governor Young's successor has never been " appointed and qualified." President Pierce did not appoint Uovcrnor Young, neither has he removed him, nor appointed another in his place that would accept the office. Thus Mr Benton will perieive that the " prophecy" he says Brigham Young uttered when he made a speech to the people on the occasion of Col Steptoe's being Governor? '?that he intended to remain in his place until God should say, ? Brigham. I don't want you to be Governor of Utah any longer,' " is be ing fulfilled. But there were no such words uttered by Governor Young on that occasion, though he did utter them in substance at the time the first judges left Utah some three years previously So Mr. Benton s West Point tactics smuggling, hybemating, ?3 , reminds me of the '?Indian that cursed the King on the other side of the hill " But, says Mr. Benton . " There was some thing else which J did not for see; which was that this Military Governor carried off four dozen of the Mormon Betty Martins with him, to the infinite distress of the saint*, profoundly chagrinntd to find themselves encroached upon by the Gentiles.'! O, mira? bile dictn ' What is Mr Benton's object in misstating and exaggerating every thing he writes or speaks about ? Does he expect to make political capital thus? If he does, let me inform him that such bogus coin will not go in the market; but "drowning men catch at straws," even to making ugly or wry faces, and cramping contortions of the same at generals while sitting in court martial s. Poor old man ; he is certainly in his dotage ! There were eight females in all that left Utah with the officers and soldiers of Col. Steptoe's command, one or two of them were married to the soldiers previous to leaving; some left with the officers, and the balance wont off of their own accord ; and Gov. Young, and all the "Saints'' there were heartily glad they were gone. For, let me inform Mr. Benton, tho lossof such ' Betty Martins" does anything else but " chagrin the Saints.'" I would further inform Mr. Benton that Utah is too hot a place for "Betty Mar tins," libertines, or adulterers to tarry in long; they soon "cu* stick," and make 'Straight wakes," and, bowling, flee rfway. If Mr Benton has everpassel through Salt Lake City lio can bear testimony to it,n> doubt These " Betty Martins" wont off with the soldiers, and some inferior officers under the promiie of marriage, as I understand But Col. Steptoe declared expressly that no female from Utah was going with him or by hio consent; aud if others carried them off, they did so upun their own responsibility. Mr. Benton also says " Utah is in revolt." Revolt against what? Why. against all in fernal scoundrels that wish to contaminate so ciety?adulterers, Ac.,?that ruin female vir tue, destrcy the peace of families, deny their own flesh and blood, and all liars, hypocrites, murderers, and wicked men, that are a dis grace to society, to the very name of man?a stench in the nostrils of tho Almighty and all good men! But Mr. Benton would imply in revolt to the Governmentof the United States He knew better when he made the remark ; and every honest man that has ever been in Utah will bear testimony to the same ; for a more law-abiding people, or one that is^more attaohed to the Constitution of the United States, than inhabit the Territory of Utah, cannot be fouud. But Mr Benton must spit out his spleen againsl Utah and the Mormons whenever and wherever he speaks. To be sure, his influence is not much at present, but ho well recollects, no doubt, what his influence brought upon the innocent and unoffending of the Mormons in tho State of Missouri some years ago. The widows, orphans, and tho maimed now in Utah have not lorgotten it. Mr. Ben ton is like all others of the same stripe. They know the increasing power and influenced the Mormons, and are afraid of retributive jus tice. lience. they keep barking But a '?guilty conscience is its own accuser.' Mr Benton, the Mormons will not hurt you "You are bitting at a hat that has no head in it." Polygamy, too, like "Hamlet's ghost,' is always haunting him; or. perhaps the thought of the feminine gender almost overcomes the old man now, who, po doubt, is like one of the nneienta : i as one dead to the world ami as imp 1 as the grave " It is a matter of as tonishment to me that such a reformer as *r Benton should not, in his celebrated speeches, refer to the existing things (putting polygamy to the blush) almost every where, abounding especially in the large cities of the ktat?s. as he well knows. I wonder he did not advert to it in his celebrated speech, or insert it iu his "Thirty Year's \ lew," and then charge it upon the Administration Does Mr. Benton ever refer to those things ? O, no, they are " too popular." But let me ask Mr. Benton if Abraham. Isaac, and Jaoob, men after God'a own heart, and whose God he declares him?elf to be, were not all polygamists, as well as David and Solomon, and many others. Look at their descendants. Did not Jesus, the Saviour of the world, according to the fleth, come THE WEEKLY STAR.

Benton, and all other* of the same stripe, will no doubt be cast out; for he oertainly would never want to be in company witb polygamistv It appears the Lord think* so much of that old polygamic Jaaob. that be in going to have the i.ames of his twelves sunt (from different wives) "engraved upon the gates of the New Jerusalem the Holy City to co vie down from Heaven " I do not write to advocate polygamy be re, but to reply to Mr Benton, wherein he speaks of Dale Owen being "sent to a foreign court for his election servioes, and says that he must con vey the idea, wherever heroes, that the United States is a whole nation of Mormons returning to the state of forest animals " This is a nut for Mr Benton to erack, by way of keeping himself from again expressing his ignorance in talking of things be knows nothing about. Bat 1 have traced his nonsense far enough? he ts dead in a volttical tense, and his fate reminds me of tue verdict of a negro jury on an inquest of a deceased negro, returned as follows : "We, de underscribed darkies, bein a Ker ne's Juray of disgust to sit on de body ob de aiggar Sambo, now dead and gone before us. hab bin sitting on dc niggar aforesaid, did, on de night ob de furteenth of Nobembvr, come to his def by fallin from de bridge over de riber into de said riber, whar we find be wat sudsemly drowned and arterwards washed on dc riber side, whar we soose he fro? to def " V. I. A , or Utah. Vi Edward McGowan, who is indicted as an accomplice in the assassination of Mr King, w is tried in Pennsylvania, some years since ;*nd sentenced to the State Prison for robbing the Chester Bank. After serving out a part of his -cntence. he was pardoned by the Gov ernor, and came to San Franciaco in 1M8. Here he was made ajustioe, and for two or three years dispensed a base imitation of that article?to the highest bidder. His talents and great cunning were soon found especially a l&pted to political rascality?and the bullies aid blacklegs acknowledged him as the head of their eorps. He was generally selected to preside at their primary meetings, and was a ways a delegate to the County and Stat^Con ventions. "Hon Judge McGowan" sounded ? ) respectable ! In part requital for his emi nent political services, he was made Commis si ner of Emigration, but although the amount of cash he fingered during his official term was very large, the strong box of the Treas ury was naver made one dollar the richer from this source. French women and draw poker were so expensive ! About six months since, a daughter of la belle France came near losing her life by the explosion of a torpedo, nlaced in front of her obamber door, and the Honorable Judge was generally suspected to have been the author of the ingenious plot to get his mistress into a better world. McGow an is very respectably connected in the At Untie states. He is sure to swing, if caught San Francisco paper. An Infallirlk Recite ?At this seaaon when dyseDtery becomes very prevalent, we can recommend the followirg means of cu ring the same, which are within the reach of every person at almost any hour: Take one tablespoonful of common salt and mix it with two tablespoonfuls of vinegar and pour upon it a half pint of water either hot or col J (only let it be taken cool ) A wine glass full of this mixture in the above proportions taken every half hour will be found quite efficacious in curing dysentery. If the stom ach be nauseated, a wine glass full taken every hour will suffice. For a child, the quantity should be a teaspoonful of salt and one of vinegar in a tea cup full of water. For all diseases man is heir to, nature's remedies are simple and sure, and there is no evil in the world without its antidote. We could mention numerous instance: in which tne 6 bove recipe was found effective in the cure of dysentery. UisTs to Frcoai. Housewives?Do not sweep carpets oftener than is absolutely ne cessary. After dinner sweep the crumbs into a dustpan with the hearth-brush, and pick up the shreds. A broom wears the carpet sadly. The oftener carpets ar? shaken, the longer they wear ; dirt grinds the threads out Washleather gloves should be washed in clean tepid suds. Jamaica rum, used to wash the hair, keeps it clean and healthy and promotes it growen. Bxandy dries and heats, while it strengthens the hair. If you are troubled to get soft water for washing, fill a tub or barrel half full of wood ashes, and fill it with water to make lye. A gallon of string lye put into a great kettls f hard water will make it toft as rain water Pearlash or potash is used, but costs something and is apt to injure the texture of the cloth Destruction bt Fire.?The folic wing table exhibits the amouut of pro|>erty destroyed iu tho United States during the past six months, as also for the same peri m1 of time in 1855.
