The family of Joseph Smith claims
to be of Scottish extraction aud to
have lived iu New Eugland ever since
LOO. The mother of Joseph was
tortuno-ieiier. isotti parents were
illiterate aud superstitious. They
were among the peoplo in Vermont
who, during the first decade of the
present century, followed a strange
delusion uuder the leadership of one
u iiigniu. aj mo use oi an insiru
ment which they called "St. John's
Roil" tho followers of the impostor
claimed to be aula to discover gold,
silver, currents of water under
ground, and medicinal roots and
herbs, and to cure all manner of
dieases. Like the victims of all such
delusions they banked with unlimited
impudenco upon the "Lost Tribes of
Israel," aud promised a gathering of
the favored people of God. and a
"Latter-day Glory" far exceeding tho
glory of former days. The whole
movement proved to be a scheme of a
band of swindlers. Win gate, the
leader, was arrested, but escaped
from justice, and the movement came
to an end.
