The United States Government has sent a letter to its Ministers in England, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, protesting against further Mormon emigratian to America. The letter declares that bigamy in any part of the United States is a crime, and that the Mormons destined for Utah go there with the avowed pmpose of violating that law. The letter recites the laws on the subject, with convictions thereunder, and declares the intention of the Government to prosecute every one in Utah against whom evidence is obtainable of his violating any law in this respect. This letter is believed to be preliminary to Government action forbidding vessels from landing Mormons in its port,-,, in pursuance of its obligation to prevent the immigration of lawless people.
