Trouble Among the Mormons.
The Cleveland Gazette of the 26 ult. says -- "We hear from a source to be relied on, that the Mormon Society at Kirtland is breaking up. Smith and Rigdon, after prophesying the destruction of the town, left [with] their families in the night, and others of the faithful are following. The Reformers are in possession of the Temple, and have excluded the Smith and Rigdon party. An exposure of the proceedings of the Society is in course of preparation by one Parish, the former Confidential Secretary of the prophet. He has records &c. in his possession."

THE MORMONS IN CARROLL COUNTY. -- Notwithstanding the co-operation of Jo Smith and his followers with the Loco Focos, they do not seem to [so obtain] a very good relationship with the people of Carrol county. A meeting was held at Crrolline, in Carroll county, on the 30th of July, at which James Standley presided, and T. H. Freeman acted as secretary. A preamble and resolutions were presented and accepted. They recite, that David Thomas and Henry Root had encouraged some of the Mormons to settle in the western part of the county, and had sold them lands, &c. Whereupon, a resolution was passed, requesting the Mormons to leave county; and a committee was appointed to wait upon Thomas and Root and communicate to them the sense of the meeting. The meeting thus adjourned until the 7th inst.

We cut out the following communication from the Boonslick Democrat. Let the reader bear in mind the fact that these Mormons, most of whom we believe are abolitionists, with this same Joe Smith, who has compelled the officers to swear allegiance to him, are members of the Van Buren Locofoco party, and supported at the last election the whole Locofoco ticket, but two men in Smith's county, having the courage to disobey his commands and vote against his revelations. That "they are unfriendly to our government" is very evident from their conduct on that occasion. Their interests, which are the same with the Locofocos generally, are associated with the abolitionists and Fanny Wright disciples in New York. It is rather a strange spectacle to see members of the same fraternity thus abusing each other, but it is said 'when certain persons disagree the truth is apt to look out.'

We learn from the Columbia (Boone Co.) Patriot, that a gentleman of that town has received a letter from Livingston county, stating that some cutting and stabbing was perpetrated by the Mormons of Daviess county, on the day of election, and, that some companies had been raised in Livingston with a view of going over and assisting in drubbing the Mormons; but that, before they got quite ready to march, they learned the strength of the Mormons which suggested to their prudence the propriety of remaining at home till they could be assured that reinforcements would join them from other counties, sufficiently great to cope with the combined force of the Mormons
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Monday, September 3, 1838. No. 1636.
We have every prospect just now of a fearful commotion between that sect of religious fanatics (the Mormons) and the citizens of Daviess and some of the adjoining counties. We give below the remarks of the "Western Star" and the proceedings of a meeting in Ray county. The tone and temper of the resolutions adopted at the meeting in Ray are such as every one will highly approve. Let the law have its full course and then, if there is not power in its officers and mandates to protect the rights of the citizens, let the appeal be made to the last of all remedies -- the right of self-protection! The Mormons are a troublesome and dangerous set of people, and a curse to any community in which they may be located. We have known of them personally; they are generally a low, dirty, ignorant and degraded class, who look upon their leaders with the most explicit confidence, and whose biddings they obey with the most abject servility. Still, bad as they are, they have some cause to complain that our laws have not protected them. The report that Jo Smith had surrendered himself to the civil authorities is not confirmed by the latest accounts from that quarter. The remarks of the "Western Star" are as follows:
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Thursday, September 6, 1838. No. 1637.
MORE MORMON DIFFICULTIES. -- A meeting was held by the people of Saline County on the 21st ult., at which, after expressing the opinion that a present the people of Carroll county do not need their services in expelling the Mormons, they resolve that they are ready and willing, whenever it shall be necessary, to assist in the work of expulsion.

MORMONS. -- The latest information from the Mormons is, that Jo Smith had agreed to surrender himself to the civil authorities, but that Lyman Wright [sic] still held out and refused in surrender. We do not learn that any further proceedings have been had on either side, and the prospect now is that the whole will pass over in smoke.

The committee appointed by the meeting held in this place on Saturday last, and instructed to "repair to the scene of recent difficulties and aggressions" with the Mormons, have just returned from their mission, and we learn from Mr. P. M. Jackson, one of the committee, that things do not [present] a scene so very alarming as has been represented by various reports from that quarter. Some of the leading Mormons have intimated their willingness to submit themselves to the legal authorities; hence we may infer that no serious difficulties will arise.

More Help For the Loco Focos. -- The Terre Haute (In.) Courier says that upwards of sixty wagons passed that place in one day, containing the families of emigrating Mormons, all bound for Missouri.

We had hoped that this difficulty was at an end; but more recent intelligence leaves no doubt of the quarrel being of a more serious character than was at first anticipated. Below we give an extract from a letter written by a respectable gentleman of Lexington, and addressed to a citizen of this city. This account of the state of affairs is truly alarming. The writer says: "Great excitement prevails the other side of the river against the Mormons -- they are all up in arms and have, we understand this morning, had some fighting, which resulted in the killing of a few of both parties. The citizens of Ray county sent a wagon load of arms and ammunition, to the citizens of Daviess for the purpose of defending themselves. On their way out they were captured by a company of Mormons, and taken to Far West. A Committee has this morning arrived from the other side asking for men to assist them in the protection of their property."

THE MORMON DIFFICULTIES.
We have nothing later from Daviess county than the 14th. At that time the militia from Clay, Saline, Jackson and some other counties were collecting in Daviess and Carroll, but no decisive steps had been taken on either side. We copy below an article from the WESTERN STAR, (published at Liberty, in Clay county,) of the 14th, which shows the origin and progress of the difficulty. We have heard a number of verbal reports, but nothing that can be relied on, so we prefer waiting for more positive intelligence. The remarks of the STAR are as follows:

MORMONS.. -- The latest accounts state that the difficulties are in a fair way of amicable adjustment, without further disturbance.

Information has been received by express from Judge King, who [resides in the Circuit where the difficulty exists that an insurrection is now actually on foot in the counties of Caldwell and Daviess. -- The same information has just been received from Gen. Atchison, who is now at Richmond, with 250 men, and intends proceeding immediately to the scene of difficulty. Gen. A. has ordered out 400 more men from his Division. In consequence of this information, the Governor has, by expresses, ordered Gen'ls Grant of Boone, to have 360 men, Clark of Howard, to have 500 men, Lucas of Jackson, 400 men and Crowther, of Cooper, 400 men, organized and to march immediately to the scene of doifficulty, to suppress the insurrection and restore order to the community. Gen Atchison states that the men now under arms in Daviess and Caldwell, are not less than 2000; the greater part of whom are Mormons, and the balance citizens.

We have no certain intelligence of the movements in the vicinity of the far west. What all the fuss and martial array of troops, their marching and counter marching has amounted to we know not. The western papers received by last mail are silent on the subject. A letter from a gentleman in Randolph county, dated the 21st, contains the following postcript -- Strange and absurd as the ideas are which are here expressed by this Englishman, yet, when we consider the fanaticism which possess[es] these deluded beings, it is not strange that they should entertain such foolish and absurd notions of what the future has in store for them.

THE MORMON WAR.
This war, which has kept a large portion of our citizens in an excitement for the last thirty days, is now at an end in every thing, except payin the piper, which the people have yet to do. The war, it is estimated, will cost the State at least fifty or sixty thousand dollars. We are told that the [whole] was easily arranged by General Atchison, in the following manner: Gen. A. -- who by the way, has the confidence of the Mormons to a very great degree, and is deserving of general respect, with about two hundred select men, in the character of conservators of the peace, repaired to Far West, where he held a conference with the leading Mormons, and was assured by them that every disposition was entertained, on their part, to abide by the laws. They stated their willingness to submit to the judicial decisions of the county. and claimed nothing but the protection of the laws. A full investigation by General A. of the whole matter, satisfied him that the Mormons were the injured party, and that the statements of Justice Black and others, of the Mormons' threats and attempts to force persons to sign a paper, and to swear allegiance to Jo Smith, were entirely false and groundless. General A. easily succeded, after learning the whole facts, in restoring peace and quiet to the county, and in dispersing all the armed forces in the neighborhood.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Monday, October 8, 1838. No. 1663.
We did suppose that this war, alike disgraceful to all partie concerned, was at an end; but the present prospects are otherwise. We learn by a gentleman who came passenger in the steamboat Kansas, on Saturday, that when at the Mormon town above the mouth of Grand river, he saw about two hundred of the Mormons armed and prepared for conflict. -- About eighty wagons, containing a number of families, had just arrived at the village. This passenger states that some of the citizens of the adjoining county had given notice to the Mormons to leave the country, and that if they did not go by Saturday, they would be driven off. The Mormons had refused to go, and were expecting every day an attack from their opponents, whom they represented as about equally strong with themselves. -- It however, was the opinion of our informant, that both parties dreaded a conflict, and he thought it most likely that nothing serious would grow out of the excitement.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Wednesday, October 11, 1838. No. 1666.
The following intelligence is quite alarming. The letter which we give below was received yesterday by the Saint Peters, which left Glasgow about daylight on Monday morning, the 7th instant. The letter was written about the hour of the boat's leaving. The writer is one of the most respectable citizens of the upper country; his statements may be relied upon.

FURTHER FROM THE MORMONS. -- We learn by the Pirate, which arrived at noon to-day, that, on Tuesday night, the anti-Mormons were still in force near Dewitt. The Pirate lay at Greenville, seven miles above Dewitt, on Tuesday night. At that time, information had come in, that the anti-Mormons had given their opponents notice that they must take up their line of march next morning, at 8 o'clock. This the Mormons refused to do. It was reported, also, that the Anti-Mormons had sent word to the Mormons that, if they would collect their women and children in one house -- that house should not be fired on. -- As the Prate passed down on Wednesday morning, by Dewitt, a flag was seen flying over one of the largest houses there. From all appearances, there is reason to believe that a conflict took place on Wednesday.

MORMON DIFFICULTIES. -- Late yesterday, we recived from our esteemed friend at Glasgow, the following letter in relation to this difficulty, which, for the present, seems to have ended bloodless. The writer will please accept our thanks, for his attention to our wishes. At some suitable occassion we hereafter may express our opinion of the lawless measures which have been pursued by the citizens to the Mormons; at present, we have no time for comment.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Saturday, October 20, 1838. No. 1672.
... There is a report in the city, said to be on the authority of a letter, that the Mormons had burnt the Court House, clerk's office, Post Office, and two stores in the county seat of Daviess county, and that the war between them and the citizens had actually commenced. There is some probability in the report, as we were informed that an effort was making to expel them from the country....
Vol. ? St. Louis, Monday, October 29, 1838. No. 1679.
MORMON DIFFICULTIES. -- There is said to be a gathering of belligerants against the Mormons in Davis county, of near two hundred. It was hoped that the approach of winter would allay the avenging spirit of persecutors of this deluded people.

ALARMING STATE OF AFFAIRS.
The following letter, from a highly respectible individual, has been politely furnished us by a friend, for publication. The statements are confirmed by many verbal reports in the city. We have lately conversed with several intelligent individuals from the vicinity of the Mormon disturbance, and, whilst we have found it difficult to arrive with any certainty at the truth concerning many things, we are well assured that the hostility is more deeply seated than has generally been supposed, and we feel assured that bloodshed and devastation only will terminate the struggle, unless the Mormons remove from the country. Every account from that quarter shows an existing state of agitation in the public mind truly alarming. Every stranger is watching with jealousy, and every man compelled to take sides for or against the Mormons. In truth, there appears to be but little division on the part of the citizens, in their opposition. We are told that the two men who laid out the town of De Witt, and, as a matter of speculation, invited the Mormons to buy lots in it, have been given leave to pass through the country three times, after which they are informed that a return there will be dangerous. They have already removed their goods into another county.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Friday, November 2, 1838. No. 1683.
MORMON WAR. -- We give a large portion of our paper to-day to the contents of an extra, issued at the request of the Governor, by the Missouri Watchman, containing the evidence on which he has ordered out the troops. We had several reports from that quarter yesterday. The most authentic is, that a skirmish had occurred between the Mormons and citizens near the line of Ray county, in which ten of the citizens were killed and a number taken prisoners. This is but rumor, however, and may or may not be true. There are so many reports it is almost impossible to know what to believe or what to reject
N.S. Vol. 2. St. Louis, Saturday, November 3, 1838. No. 80.
MORMON WAR. -- We have nothing further from the scene of difficulty. We learn by the Far West of the 25th instant, that General Atchison had ordered out the militia of Clay to repair to the field of dispute. Such is the influence of Gen. A. with both parties, that we are disposed to hope that his presence, aided by a sufficient force, may restore peace to the country. The western mail brings us nothing. A postscript in the Missourian says:
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Monday, November 5, 1838. No. 1687.
Just as our paper was ready for the press yesterday, we received the following letter from Mr. Ryland. To those abroad who do not know Mr. R. we can say that he is the judge of the Circuit Court. The picture which he gives of the prevailing excitement may be relied upon as strictly accurate. We are glad to find that the account of Capt. Bogard's defeat is not as bad as was represented in former accounts. The letter is post marked the 30th, up to which time, we presume, nothing of importance had occurred.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Tuesday, November 6, 1838. No. 1687.
MORMONS. -- The Steam Boat Dart came in late yesterday evening from Fort Leavenworth. We are indebted to the officers for a copy of the manifest, upon which is the following memorandum. --
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Wednesday, November 7, 1838. No. 1689.
We have seen and conversed with several persons from the scene of difficulty, but such is the excitement prevailing, and the difference of views entertained, that we find it wholly impossible to arrive at any satisfactory conclusion concerning the origin or objects of this contest; and probably there is as much truth in the simple statement, that both parties are in fault, as any other that at this time could be made. Of this fact we are well satisfied, the alarm has created much individual suffering on the part of the citizens, and, if the disturbance continues, as the Mormons are disposed, which now seems to be the prevailing expectation, there will be suffering to a very great extent. There is no question but the destruction of property in Daviess county has been great, and the loss of crops and stock will deprive many of their expected winter's subsistence. The Mormon emigration has been large this fall, the [amount] raised by them small. It is believed that, from what they have gathered from the adjoining country, they now might subsist, if suffered to remain where they are until spring, but this will not be tolerated. We confidently look for consequnces of the most fearful character from this cause.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Thursday, November 8, 1838. No. 1690.
THE MORMON WAR AT AN END.
The steamboat Pirate arrived at our port last evening from the Missouri. We learn from her passengers that the war with the Mormons, about which so much anxiety has existed, has been brought to a termination, by the surrender of the whole Mormon force to the troops under the command of Major General Clark near Far West. No resistence was offered by them, and Jo. Smith, Rigdon, White, and three or four others of the leaders were detained by the commander of the forces, to await such proceedings as may hereafter be instituted against them. It is reported, but we think it will turn out to be as erroneous as the statements about Capt. Bogard's engagement and defeat, that some seventeen or twenty of the Mormons were killed after they had surrendered themselves prisoners, and that other acts of violence were committed. A few days must bring authentic information upon the subject, and also of the disposition which is to be made of the Mormon leaders. It is also stated that General Atchison, of Clay, had resigned his command, because of some disaffection which he felt towards the Governor's orders.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Friday, November 9, 1838. No. 1691.
We copy the annexed perspicuous statement of the Mormon difficulties from the St. Louis Evening Gazette, being more full than any we have time to prepare. To the Gazette's statement we can only add, that the editor has faithfully embodied the substance of the reports now in circulation in the city. In several instances the statements conflict very much with each other.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Saturday, November 10, 1838. No. 1692.
The Western Mail of yesterday, brought us nothing further in relation to the Mormon difficulties. The troops under the command of Col. Grant, we believe from Callaway, were on their way home. The Western papers say nothing of the slaughter, after the surrender, which has been reported here.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Monday November 12, 1838. No. ?
FURTHER FROM THE MORMONS. -- The account of a bloody butchery of thirty two Mormons, on Splawn's Creek, is fully confirmed. Two children were killed, we presume, by accident. Considerable plunder -- such as beds, hats, &c. were taken from the slaughtered. Not one of the assailants was killed or hurt.

PROGRESS OF OPERATIONS AGAINST THE MORMONS.
The Western mail yesterday, brought us the "Missouri Watchman," of the 8th, from Jefferson City. -- The details which it gives in regard to the Mormon war, have been in part anticipated, but it is nevertheless throught proper to insert them here. Some portions of them are very curious.
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Wednesday, November 15, 1838. No. 1695.
...We likewise learn that another engagement has taken place in Caldwell County, in which 36 Mormons were killed on the ground, without any loss on the part of our citizens. This report was brought to this office (unofficially) on Wednesday, by a Mr. Herriman; who says the Mormons were attacked by a company of Rangers of about 50 in number, while guarding a mill which they had seized and partially destroyed. The Mormon force is stated to have been about the number killed...
Vol. 15. St. Louis, Saturday, November 17, 1838. No. 1697.
THE MORMON WAR. -- The Western mail, yesterday, brought us some additional particulars in regard to the disturbances in Caldwell county. The Far West, published at Liberty, states that Gen. Clark still remained at the town of Far West, having under his command 1300 men, who were employed in guarding the captured Mormons. The General had despatched an order to Gen. Lucas, commanding him to return Jo and Hiram Smith, Rigdon, Wight, Robinson and Hunt, for trial in Richmond, Ray county. Gen. Lucas was on his way to Jackson county, and, it is said, refused to obey this order. A great many of the Mormons had made their escape from Caldwell county, leaving their families.

THE MORMON PRISONERS. -- We learn from the Western Star, of Nov. 20, that the examining trial of the Mormons, before Judge King closed at Richmond on the Wednesday previous. That paper says "Some twenty-five or thirty were discharged, and about thirty-five are retained for indictment and trial -- some for treason against the State, some for murder, some as accessaries to murder, and some for arson, burglary, robbery and larceny. We are informed the testimony discloses many facts, which have not yet been published to the world, but not deeming it proper to make them the subject of newspaper comment before the trials of the accused, we forbear their disclosure. We are not apprised with certainty what steps will be taken for the safe custody of the prisoners, but think it most probable they will be divided and sent to the jails of the most convenient counties having jails. They are at present under the guard of a part of Capt. Bogard's company of militia, Gen. Clark having disbanded all the troops by order of the Governor.

THE MORMON PRISONERS.
It will be seen by our correspondence, that the examination of the Mormon prisoners, at Richmond, Ray county, and the [sic] resulted in the discharge of some, and the retention of many others, to answer various crimes, from treason down to larceny. The same letter gives us some rumors in regard to the conduct of a portion of the anti-Mormon party, in the purchase of lands at the recent land sales at Lexington, which if true, will have a tendency to excite public sympathy in favor of the Mormons, and create a strong prejudice against their oppressors. Much as we censure the course of the Mormons, there is no act, of which we have any knowledge, which will at all compare with the unrighteousness of those who, it seems, got up this crusade in order to obtain possession of the houses and lands of their victims. We will not, even now, believe that any considerable portion of the anti-Mormon party are obnoxious to the charges brought against them, and hope that it may be found to apply to few of them.

We have to-day given up more space to the debate in the House of Representatives upon the Mormon memorials, than is to our liking; but it could not well be avoided. These sketches from some of the parties concerned are probably the only memorials we shall have of the cruelties inflicted upon and the injustice done to a class of men whose greatest offence seems to have been, that they inhabited fair lands and stood in the way of those who coveted them. We think it certain, now, that no investigation, except it be a one-sided one, will ever be made by the Legislature; for, where the right of petition is refused, and all manner of reproach is visited upon the petitioners, it is not likely that they will be allowed to be heard if a more formal and searching examination were to be ordered.

THE LEGISLATURE. -- At a late hour last evening, we received a letter from Jefferson, giving the proceedings of the 20th, a portion of which day was occupied upon the Mormon difficulty. The two first resolutions reported by the committee were adopted. The third was amended, by authorizing the committee to report to the Governor so soon as all the facts of the case have been collected -- whereupon the Governor is to issue his proclamation for a meeting of the Legislature. The committee on the part of the House is to consist of three members. In this shape the resolutions were passed and sent to the Senate.
