There will be three discourses, one each by President Geo. A. Smith and Elders Orson Pratt and Geo. Q. Cannon.

Will Be Published Shortly.

Considerable enquiry is made by the public for the reply of Elder Orson Pratt to the sermon of the Reverend Mr. Newman, against polygamy, preached some time since in the City of Washington. We take this opportunity of informing our readers and the public generally, that we are about to publish, in pamphlet form, Mr. Newman’s discourse and Elder Pratt’s reply. They will be ready for sale in a few days.

Church Publications.

In answer to many enquiries about certain Church works we have to state that the Book of Mormon will be ready and on sale in about eight days from this date.

The Book of Doctrine and Covenants, now out of print, will be ready, if nothing unlooked for occurs to prevent, in two months from now. The new edition is revised, re-arranged, according to the dates upon which the revelations were received, and is divided into sections and verses, in a somewhat similar style to the construction of the Bible. It will also contain several revelations that have not appeared any former edition.

The pamphlet, “Does the Bible Sanction Polygamy, a Discussion between Elder Orson Pratt and the Rev. J.P. Newman,” is in hand and will be ready in about a month from now.
