New York Daily Tribune publishes Horace Greeley's recent interview with Brigham Young:

"H. G. What is the position of your church with respect to slavery?"

"B. Y. We consider it of divine institution, and not to be abolished until the curse pronounced on Ham shall have been removed from his descendants."
