This article from a leading independent newspaper in New York edited by James Gordon Bennett reports on the apparent acceptance by Brigham Young and the Mormon community of the new federally appointed (and non-Mormon) Territorial Governor of Utah, Alfred E. Cumming. General Albert Sidney Johnston’s troops, which had accompanied Cumming to ensure his installation, had subsequently turned their focus toward quelling Indian uprisings in the Far West. The article refers to the earlier, shocking defeat of Lieutenant Col. Edward J. Steptoe’s troops by Snake River Indians on May 17, 1858 in the Oregon Territory. (By Anna Lovett)
