EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: ? AllKDAY PUvtmbrr IS, 1?|6. W iKnTwmiiTi i??n? ?? at hi Orrici >t Twiiti ?'?trf, M . DTIIIVm T?BT MAT MOT kfTUAn THE WEEKLY STAB. Our weekly iwue of to-day will bo found a capital camber replete with interesting Wash ington and other news of all description, for eign and domestic, as well as oapital tale?, Ac., for family reading. Persons in Wash ington desiring to keep friends at a distance posted with reliable information as to how the world wags here, cannot do better than to step down and subscribo for the Wekklt Star to be mailed regularly to their address. SriKITOF THE MORNING PKMSiS The Union argaes to show the fallacy of the reasoning of those who deem it possible ttat a southern confederacy, embracing our Southern States, Mexico and Central America, can ever be formed and flourish. From the same paper we learn that the plurality of Bu chanan over the Fusion ticket in Pennsylva nia is (cfficial) 27,162, and bis majority there over all the opposition votes and tickets com bined frro5. The Intelligencer elaborately discussts, in a very interesting article, its position in the late Presidential canvass. It repeats its for mer disclaimer of sympathy with either Know Nothing or Republican partyisms. The Opera We never before witnessed so universal a display of enthusiasm in a Washington thea tre as last night attended Louisa Pyne's im personation of Lucy Ashton, Mr. Harrison's Edgar Kavensw^od, and Mr. Gnillmette's Henry Ashton, in " Lucia de Lammermcor.'' The house was crowded; being the best, so far, of the season. As performed, the opera took the audience by storm. The principal per formers were not only vociferously applauded after their every effort, but were called out at the end of every act. We have beard this opera, in Italian and English, perf rmed by e7ery opera company that has been in this country in tho last ten year?, and never before hoard it so well per formed. From the opening scene to tfcc fall ing of the curtain it was faultlessly and most brilliantly acted and sung, cs was testified by the delighted public of Washington. Jenny Lind herself created no such real furore hero as LouUa Pyne, Harrison and Guillmetto gen last night. Wo know not who prepared the score for Mr. Harrison's English version ; but it has been better done tban we conceived to be possible. Whoever tho arranger may have been, Mr. H. could not do a wiser thing than to place in his bands for revision the ori ginal of every opera represented by hi3 ac complished troupa. To-night, for Louisa Pyne's benefit, they perform the Child of the Regiment, by par ticular request, that having been the opera in which Miss P. first won great professional fame. The occasion is for her benefit It is the last night of the Troupe here They per form neat in Baltimoro Our hope id that they may be induced to return to Washington from thence, ere commencing tho winter eeu son at Niblo's, New York, for which they are said to be engaged Wo heard such hopes expressed by many last night Indeed, the wish was evidently universal throughout tho house. A noteworthy circumstances attending list night's representation of the poetic, pathetic, graceful and rich music of Lucia, was the re markable eppreeiation of its beauties by the audienee, tban which no other on this side of the Atlantic can be more capable cf ccmpre hsnding the beauties of the science of music; for the divine art has indeed become a science venture to say that a seoond representa tion of the same opera by this accomplished troupe will draw together in Washington an audience twice as large in proportion to popu lation, as ever yet attended the performac.-e of music in the United 8tates. Let us havo Don Paaquale, Mr. Harrison, also, on your return, and II Barbiere, re-arranged from the original Italian by the mastcily arranger who pre pared Lucia so admirably for the style and strength of your company.

Troubles in D??eret.?The last mail from Utah brings the De??ret News, published in Great Salt Lake City, up to the first of Octo ber. We cuU from it several extracts indi cating a stato of affairs there of the most ex tra >rdinarj and unexpected character even for Mormondom. It Is plain that matters are getting to extremities, and that Young and his coadjutors in misrule are almost at their wits end. They are preparing the minds of their deluded, but, in many cases, pitiable followers for a change which can be deferred scarcely any longer, and which they distinctly psrccive may eventuate inauspiciously for ( themselves and tho grinding despotism in whose meshes they have entangled so many thousand of moo and women gathered from many nation.-. What must bo the pressure of these cxigcncies may be inferred from the na ture ot thoir propositions, as conveyed in the discourses of Presidents Jediah M. Grant, Brig ham Young and Hebor C. Kimball. The b'aspbemy and cruelty betrayed in these pro posals wc should not expose to tho eyes of our readers if tho aims of the "prophets" could ba told in any language as appropriate to the subject as their own. Sunday, the 21st of September last, seemed to be the day on which the spcc;al work of breaking their purpose to the pet pie was to be dono Brother Kimball prepared the way for Grant and Young by extolling their apostolic authority : " When our President, our Leader, our Prophet, speak3 unto "8 from week to week, end from Sabbath to Sabbath, do hi3 teachings reach our hearts? Do the people bear ? Do the people understand ? If they do, they aye not nil careful to practico. "I have told you a great many times, that tho word cf our Leader and Prophet is the word of God to this people, and you play with those word?, and you ueglcct them. You ne glect the voice and word of God, and it will fall upon you in a way that you never expect ed, and y?u don't expect it now. But there is yet a chance for us to redeem ourselves g ? * ?# ?4 Let us lise up as a people and turn unto the Loid our Gcd with full purpose of heart, and peradventure our sins may be remitted and forgiven and blotted out This is whit the Lord ha3 placed men to load you for. Ycu cannot see God, vou cannot behold him and hold converse with him, as one man does with another; but ho has given us a man that we can talk to and theroby know hi3 will, just &3 wed a> if God himself was present " Thi3 address wajs followed by one from Youag himself, delivered in a tone of fierce denunciation, and suggestive of what might be oxpecttd from his hands if the rising spirit of insubordination to liis insufierablo tyranny should jet m >re distinctly develop itself. It apjonrs th-t in order to be able to discrimi nate between those who aro still willing to submit and those who may bo contemplating a disregard of hi3 rule, President Brigham Young ha* cttuscd a baptismal font to be erect ed in a public place at which all the faithful arc called to renew their vows to the true church." It is to this ho makes reference in the extract from his sermon succceding tla* of Kimball, lie says: 44 When we get the font prepared, that is now being built, I wi 11 take you into the waters of baptism, if v< u repent of your sins. If you will covtrant to livo with your religion and to S.tir.t? of the Mcsl l!igh, you shall have that privilege, and I will have tho honor of baptizing jou in that font, or of feeing that it I is done. 44 As for living here, as I have done for a length of time, hid up in the chambers of tho Lord, with a peojle that are full of conten tion, lull of covetousnesa, full if pride, and full of iniquity, I will not do it And if tho people will not repent, It t tho sinners and hypocrites look out.. I will repent with you and I will try with my might to get the spirit of my calling; and it I have not that spirit now to a fullne?? I will get m >re of it, bo as to enjuy it to its fullness. And if I ihould be filled with tho power anl spirit of the mission that i ? upon me, I shall not spare the wickcd ; I shall be like a flaming sword against them, and to will ail those that live their religion ; it is not to bo suffered any longer. * * * 4* It tho people are disposed to awake out of their lethargy and walk un to their religion, to their duty to tho highest privilege ihat ever was or ever can be granted to mortal man upon this earth, which is eternal life, and will do go, tben wo will bo brothren. And if not, the thread must be severed, for I cannot hold men and women in fellowship that serve tho devil and themselves, and give no heed to tho Almighty ; I cannot do it " After the civil Governor of the Territory and chief of the Salt Lake hierarchy had con cluded. Brother Grarit mounted the pulpit ana aldressed his bearers in terms yet more harsh and pointed than his predecessors. lie first opened the schemc of personal immola tion, a rcscrt v.hich no doubt took even the soundest '* saint" by surprise. Tho News g ves no intimation as to bow this astounding proposal was received. I 44 There are,'' says Grant, abominable characters in < ur midst, and they will seek uuto wizards thai peep, and to star-gazers and soothsayers, because tboy have no taith in the holy prieahood, and then when they meet us they want to be called saints. * ? # '? I say that thero are men and **omen that I would advise to goto the President immedi atidy, ai.d ?tk him to appoint a committee to attend to their case ; and then let a place bo selected, and let that committee ehed their blood. 4- Wc have thoscs amongst U3 that are full of all manner of abominations, those who need to have their blood shed, for water will not do, their sins ere of too deep a dye. 44 You may think that I am not teaching you Biblo doctrine, but what says the apostle Paul ? I would ask how many covenant breakers there are in this city and in this king dom. I believe there aro a great tunny, and if they nre covenant breakers we need a place designated, where wc can ehed their blood " It has been the steady habit of the Mormon publications in tho cities of the United Statc9 and elsewhere, to boast of tho happiness and contcntmcnt of the 44 spiritual wives" of Utah, but the following paragraph discloses a vory different rtate of facts. Grant goes on to say : ??And wc have wtmcn hero who like any thing but the cciestial law of God; and if they could break asunder the cable of the Church of Chria'. H ero is t-carcely a mother in Israel but w.'Uld do it this day. And they talk it to their husbands, to their daughters, and to tueir neighbors, und say they have not seen a week s happiness since they becamo acquainted with that law, or sinco their husbands took a sec ond wife. They want to break up the church of God, and to break it from their husbands and from their family connections " That the rulers of the church meditato no thing short of the wholesale murder or expul aion, at the very least, of all who hesitate to run with them to every length of tyranny and crime, is evident fr>m the extracts from Grant and Young which immediately follow : ' We have been trying long enough with this jeople, and I go in for letting the sword i of the Almighty be uniheathod, not only in word but in deed. "I in for letting the wrath of the Al | mighty Lurn up the dns> and the filth; and if the people will not glorify the Lord by aanc tifying themselves, let the wrath of the AI mighty God burn against them, and the wrath of Joseph and of Brigham and of ilober and of high heaven ? * ? # * " Brethren and sisters, wo want you to re pent and forsake your sins. And you who nave committed sins that cannot be forgiven ' through baptism, let your blood be shei and ' let the smoke ascend, that the incense thereof ' n> j iobio up beforo (Jod as an atonement for j Cur sins, and that the sinners in Zion may j afraid. ? ?????( " I would advise those persona to repent of their sins forthwith, and to trj with all their might to get the Spirit of their religion upon them; and if they cannot do that, to take their own course and go where their hearts desire, for doubtless there is some place where you would wish to go. ? * * * " There are sins that men commit for whioh they cannot receive forgiveness in this world, or in that which is to come, and if they had their eyes open to see their true condition, they would be perfectly willing to have their blood spilt upon the ground, tnat the smoke thereof might ascend to heaven as an offering for their sine; and the smoking incense would atone for their sins, whereas, if such is not the ease, they will stick to them and remain upon them in the spirit world. " I know, when you hear my brethren tell ing about cutting popple off from the earth, that you consider it is strong doctrine ; but it is to save them, not to destroy them. The last quotation we can make from these blasphemous and fanatical but significant dis courses, indicate the sentiments of the femalo members of Mormon society respecting the thraldom in which they have so long been held by this surpassing superstition. The great Brigham says: " Now for my proposition; it is more partic ularly for my sister?, as it is frequently hap Eening that women say that they are un appy. Men will say, " My wife, though a most excellent womun, has not seen a happy day ficco I took my sccond wifo;" "No, not a happy day for a year," says one ; and an other Las not seen a happy day for five years It is said that women are tied down and abused: that they are misused and havo not tho liberty they ought to have ; that many of them are wading through a perfect flood of tear?, because of tho conduct of some men, together with their own folly. ?' I wish my own women to understand that , what I am going to say is for them as well as others, and I want those who are here to tell their sisters, yes, all the women of this com munity, and then write it back to the States, and do as you please with it. I am going to give you from this time to the 6th day of Oc tober next, for reflection, that you may deter mine whether you wish to stay with your hus bands or not, and then I am going to sot every woman at liberty and say to them, Now go your way, my women with tho rest, go your way. And my wivc3 have got to do one of two things; either round up their shoulders to endure the afflictions of this world and live their religion, or they may leave, for I will not have them about me. I will go into h?p.7en alone, rather than have scratching and fighting around me I will set all at lib erty 41 What, first wifo too7" Yep, I will liberate you all. * * * * ? "Now recollect that two weeks from to morrow I am going to set ycu at liberty But the first wifo will say, "It is hard, for I have lived with my husband twenty years, or thirty, and havo raised a family of children for him, and it is a great trial to me for him to have more women ;" then I say it is timo that you gave him up to other women who will bear children. If my wife had borno mo all tho children that sho ever would bare, the co lestial law would teach me to t*ke young wo men that would have children." The Isthmus Riot ?The following remarks upon the testimony taken by the American Special Commissioner, Mr. Corwine, in the matter of the great Isthmus riot, aro from tke Panama Star and Herald of the 30th ult. They are important in view of tho necessities of Americal travel and trade across tho Isth mus. \Ve doubt not they are true to the letter: " It will be recollected that when tho United State? deputed a special commissioner to re pair to Panama, for tho purposo of investiga ting the facts and circumstance? connected with the horrible massacre of their citizens on the 15th of April last, although the amplest opportunity was afforded to tho authoritios of this place and its native-born citizens to tes tily before that oflicor, only one Panameno, be it Paid to his honor, came forward and deposed what ho kBew respecting this dis graceful affair. " True, it waa not expected that any but eye-witnesses to the transaction would give testimony, and therefore what we have to say applies only to such as were personally cogni zant of what occurred at the Cienega and the railroad station. " The report of the Commissioner ha3 been published, embodying tho substance of the testimony taken by him. All tho witnesses who deposed before kim did so voluntarily. There was no coercion uped to got them to make their declarations; upon the contrary, we are knowing to the fact that the utmost precaution was taken to elicit fair and impar tial statements from the witnesses, and from the known character for veracity of thoso who came forward and testified (no community can boast of better men,) the most implicit reliance should be placed on their statements. For in stance, where can a moro reliable or better class of men be found than Captain Allan McLane, A. J. Center, Wm Nelson, David M Corwine, Arthur McKenzie, Frederick An soatigue, S. K. llolman and Edward Allen, who were tho principal witnesses who deposed before the Commissioner. They are all well known and highly appreciated in this commu nity for their moral worth and integrity ; no one can question their veracity. They all testified to what they saw, not to what they heard, and this fact viewed in connection with their characters, should have great weight. "The repjrt of Commissioner Corwine, as we expected and indeed predicted, reflects the sentiment of every foreigner on the Isth mus, if not of every intelligent native of the country. Many of tho latter are in favor of the United StatesexMvtsicg jurisdiction here, and so expressed themselves, in the strongest terin3, upon the occasion of the reoent revolu tion, declaring that their only safety dependod upon the protection of that Government. At that time the natives as well as foreigners in voked tho strong arm of tho United States to shiold them and their property from dostruo tion, and tho naval forces stationed in these waters promptly gave the desired succor, otherwise there is no telling what tho conse quences would have been. 14 The tact is, and it cannot be disguised, we need not hope for security or protection until the United States give it to us, and the eooner that protection is extended the better both for the country and the people." Tne State of Affairs on the Few Grana. dian Isthmus ?Wo take from tho San Frcn chsco Bulletiii^ttit following letter, which plainly shows tho unsettled condition of af fairs on tho Isthmus of Panama : 44 Tho following is translated from the letter of a Spanish lady to her husband?an Ameri can?in this city : " On Board SL00r op war St Marts, ) Panama, Sept 15, 1856 I "We are in the midst of great trouble A conflict is expected between tho two political 5parties on tho gubernatorial question to-day ?ho St. Marys is discharging marines to pro tect the whites. Myself and children, as alto my mother and sisters, havo taken refugo on board the sloop of-war St. Marys?as also sev eral of our lady relatives. My fathor, we hope, will come on board, as his life is threat ened 44Mr J. iiawes's wife and children, late of San Francisco, are also on board. The St. Marys has hauled close into thoro, and is im bedded in tho mud, with her broadside to the town, in order to protect the inhabitants. All the respectable inhabitants of the town desire and ardently w'rh that the United States would assumo the protectorate of tho Isthmus "J. D A D? R." Nicaragua ?The last news from Nicaragua may be summed up in few words. Vis: there has been no more fighting there since the bat tics of Maesaya and Oranada, which were both disastrous affairs for Walker. The loss of all his munitions and every thing but the arms bis troops had in their hands and tho clothes on their backs by the saok of Granada, it oonfirmed. The enemy eeem not to have subsequently attacked him, and he hai made no movement against them. Be had received rceruita, Ao , from the States, but in the mean time had suffered greatly from deaertioas. Disinterested writers from Baa Jaan del Norte represent that of late his looses from that eoaroe have equalled his accessions from the Unitod States. Tha problem to be solved in his oase is how long he can hold on there Wo do not see in the last advices any thing leading to the eon. elusion that his enemies have as jet effected any thing likely to hasten hie exit from Central America. Removal and Promotion!.?Thoa J Cath oart has been promoted from a third olasa ($1 ftOO) clerkship to be Chief Clerk in tho of fioe of tho Second Comptroller of the Treasury, vice Tobias Purrington removed. Wm. A. Evans ot Maine, has been promoted from a second class clerkship ($1,400 ) to a third class clerkship ($1,600,) vice Cathcart promoted. Wm. S. Fort of New Jersey, has been pro moted from a first class clerkship ($1,200,) to a 6econd class clerkship (51,400,) vice Evans promoted. W. F. WiUon of Tcxa3, has been appointed to the first class ($1,200 per annum) clerkship made vacant by the promotion of Mr. Fort mentioned above. We understand that the removal of Mr. Pur rington was based wholly on political grounds, and that he deservedly bears a high character for integrity, capacity and faithfulness. Kansas?The re-established Herald of Freedom, published at Lawrence, Kaasas Territory, proclaims that peace reigns in tha Territory, and praises Governor Geary for his energy and the fairncs3 with which ho treats the Non slaveholding State party thero. Illinois.?The Journal of Commsree shows that the vote of Col. Wm.
