Title Appropriation for Prison-Mail to San Diego_page 219
Description 219 MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS FOR AN APPROPRIATION FOR THE ERECTION OF A TERRITORIAL PRISON. To the Honorable, the Smate and House of Representatives of the United Slates, in Congress Assembled. Your memorialists, the Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Utah, would respectfully suggest to your honorable body, the necessity of a suitable building tor a Territorial Prison in this Territory In doing this, we would remind your honorable body, though our locality is quite remote from the exercise of Judicial authority in other states or territories, still we are not beyond the pale of frequent and multiplied crimes and offenses which demand the retribution of imprisonment. The expense of building a safe prison, sufficiently large to meet the liabilities of convicted criminals in this Territory, is greater than a distant observer might readily appre hend. This more than ordinary expense arises both from the extraordinary cost of labor and materials, and also from the multiplication of criminals thrown into the Territory by a transient and wayfaring population, as well as our own. The early erection of a substantial prison it is believed would not only tend to prevent crime, but also to reform the offenders and put them in the way of self support. The infancy of the Territory renders the erection of such a prison, at present, without, the aid of Congress, too great a work lor the iinaiv ces of your memorialists. Your memorialists therefore respectfully pray your honorable body, to appropriate the sum of sixty thousand dollars for the speedy erection of a Territorial Prison for Utah Territory; and your memorialists, as in duty bound, will ever pray. Approved Jan. 30, 1852. MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS TO ESTABLISH A SEMI-MONTHLY MAIL FROM GREAT SALT LAKE CITY TO SAN DIEGO. To the Honorable, the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress Assembled. The Governor and Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Utah, respectfully memorialize your honorable body for the following purpose, viz: Whereas, the locality of Utah Territory is such, as to render it in accessible to the mail from Missouri during four months in the year, previous to the present winter; and also, for a period of six months in the year, it is inaccessible to the mail from Sacramento and Oregon
