MORMON HISTORY.
MORMON HISTORY. The Chronology of the Latter-Day
Saints.
The existing crisis in Utali
lends interest ta the follotviiig
sketch of Mormon history, fur
nished to the N. Y. Herald by
Elder Ernest Lisle:
Joseph Smith, the prophet
and founder of the Church,
wai bom in the State of Ver
mont, in the year of our Lord
805. The designs of Heaven
were first made known to him
;it the early age of fifteen,
when he was informed in the
vision of the utter apoitacy of
the primitive church. Sept.
22, 1827, Joseph Smith reced
ed from the hands of a messen
ger from the Lord the golden
records containing the aneient
history of this continent, writ
ten by various prophets, and
concealed by Moroni in the
year 420. -Joseph was then
informed that he was to be an
instrument in the hands of God
to re-establish Hit Church on
earth in its former purity and
holiness. The prophet then
proceeded to translate golden
records :
1830 The "Church" was
organized.
1833 Our people sutTered
great persecutions in Indepen
dencs Missouri. - t
1837 Elders and priests
were sent to the different na
tions of the earth in order to
fstablish the "Church" through
out the world.-' L'c
1838 The Persecution again
