“The Dengerom Edge or Thtnge."
We say we have not advanced so lar as
the Romans in the day of their decline. But
we are not immaculate. The Atlantic
Monthly took its readers to* the dangerous
edge of things in some of Miss P/eseott's
stories; the Round Table admits a very pro
vokiug disquisition on “Purple Women,"
and tells us about their “swimming walk"
as they undulate and rustle up Fifth avenue;
Owen Meredith writes for the polite aud let
tered class of England and America a very
insinuating and exquisite statement of the
sufficient good of sensation aud of pleasure.
The culminating interest and the best wri
ting of “the Apple of Life” is the descrip
tion of the “lascivious Egyptian;" aud of
several dramatic personages, the poet makes
her noblest in the utterance of her thoughts.
Yet more perfect and powerful is a poem by
the sculptor Story, published in a late num
ber of Blackw’ood’s Magazine, aud about to
be republished here, entitled “Cleopatra;" a
poem in which the Shakesperian idea of the
swart and passionate Egyptian is intensified
and the dominant mood of that voluptuous
man-compeller is nakedly and intensely ex
pressed. The fierce energy of its expression
of animal passion is startling to tbe.soft and
fastidious pleasure-seekers of London and
"That was a life to live for !
Not this weak human life,
With its n-li ulous, bloodless passions,
Its poor and petty strife !
Come to my arms, my hero,
The shadows of twilight grow.
And the tiger’s ancient lirceness
In my veins begins to How.
Come not cringing to sue me !
Take me with triumph and power,
Asa warrior that storms a fortress!
I will not shrink or cower,
Come as yon came iu the desert.
Ere we were women and men,
When the tiger passions were in us.
And love as you loved me then !’’
It is manifest that physical life is getting
the ascendant into the world of thought, and
our meu of letters and our paialers have
joined Bacchus and his tipsy crew, and, like
gayest reveflers, sing American odes and de
light in the wild and sinuous dance of winc
fiushed Bacchantes. The stories, the poems
and the pictures of the day express a pas
sionate greed of pleasure, an avid appetite
for all soul-seducing delights and man's
pride of life. In painters this passion for
sensation shows itself in devotion to the
beautiful; iu poets it betrays itself with sen
suous words— words full of voluptuous
suggestion. —N. Y. Eva. Post.
Th* Mormons Rampant. —According to
late advices from Salt Lake City, the Mor
mons are taking higher ground in defense of
polygamy, and even speak of the possible
necessity of employing arms. Thus Smith,
one of the twelve apostles, is reported as
saying, on Sunday, August 38, that “the
South was right; the Northern army burned
and destroyed everything in the South, and
abused by force all their women. They
would be here some day to treat the fair
women of Utah in like manner. Old aud
young should have plenty of arms. God
would fight their battles, and the Saints
would be victorious.” Moreover, Brigbain
Young, himself, in a sermon at the same
time, uttered the following seutences:
“He was ready to fight the government.
He had his soldiers, and rifles, and pistols,
and ammunition, aud plenty of it, and can
non, too, and would use them, He was *on
it!’ The Governor of this territory was
useless and could do nothing. He (Brigham;
was the real governor of this people, and
by powers of the Most High he would he
Sovernor of this territory forever aud ever,
f the Gentiles did uot like this they could
leave and go to hell."
A long account given by Richardson, the
well known correspondent, writing from Salt
Lake City, closes with the following recapitu
1. Brigham and his associates are living in
open, defiant violation of the laws of the Uni
2. They are teaching to their followers in
tense hostility to our government and people,
and the necessity and duty Os resist ing by
force of arms any attempt to make the law
3. They are drilling and arming the entire
people into a compact and efficient military
4. The government places and keeps in
important Federal offices, men who flagrant
ly violate the law and systematically perjure
themselves in taking the oath of office. Not
only does the publie interest suffer financial
ly ; not only are the ends ol justice frustrated,
but our highest law-makiug authority has
solemnly enacted that polygamy is a crime,
and the government makes itself accessory
to that enme.
Obituary Female J^act. —lt is remarked,
says a London reporter, by the police of the
water side, as a characteristic circumstance
that nearly every female who throws herself
into the water, is careful to divest herself of
her bonnet and shawl, which, are placed on
the ground in such a manner as not to be in
the least damaged.
