His ac count of their situation and i 'rejects is not very flattering. .About Sous oc uainiied MorusMis, men, wohm and children, have collected at Zion. Their possessions are small compared with their uumhers, being only about lour sections of land. 1 wenty acres is the portion assigned for each fami ly to improve, but they are to hold no property should they leave the com munity. Their creed appears to nave undergone but little change. Origin ally members of almost every sect, tue cordially unite in detesting all, save Aormons. 1 hey all pretend to tne gift of miracles, of tongues, of healing their sick, visions, dec tnougb, like al otber modern miracles, often told but never seen. Their prophet Smart, is now busy in restoring the present bt vMtara Vuillli soi ill al ti ding mane lost books of great impor tance. A new revelation is also tor up coming, fcjder Kigdon, pretty well known m this vicinity as an arch apos tate, is now the first, best, and great preacher ot Mount Zion. Tne .11 or- nsous stdl profess to talk with angels, visit the intrd heaven, and converse witn Const. We believe their socie ty numbers something more than one hundred souls in tins county, mauy of whom lutend retuoviug to Mount Zion in i tie spring. Jslormouistn was mtro duced by a tew illiterate disciples ol Joseph Smith, in the summer ot 1831. berever M or monism obtained a footing, it spread like wild tire. Scores were awakened, converted, baptised, and endowed with tne holy spirit in a lew hours at a single meeting, in the midst of shoutings, waitings, contor tions, trances, visions, speaking in un known tongues, and prophecying, that require tbe pea of a TroUope to dts- cnbe. The timid were frightened. tne credulous oeiieved, and we were frequently eye witness to scenes of strange and unuatural conduct of Mor mons professedly under tbe influence of the most stable and incredulous. But the storn. passed a catcp followed reason triumphcd-Mormonism waned. As a curiosity, we have carefully exanuiied the golden bible, and pio- nounce it not even a "cunsiiag devised table." Every page bears tbe impress of iu human authorship. Tboou free from vulgar vbscenities, it is an aboard coCUonoiduO, stupid, and foolishly improbutlt stones, which no person. unless under tbe influence of powerful ly excited feelings, can mistake for truth and inspiratioo. With its au thors, the book of .tforsnon cannot survive this generation. Tbe next will remember it only to smile at the credulity of the present. Ohio Atlas. A disorder which is called 44 La Grippe," has broken out in Russiand is said caused general consternation.

In every bouse there are or have been several sick or dead, and in some not an individual has been spared. The few persons who have tbe means of removing, emigrate to distant places abandoning their dweEngs, cattle and other property. Of tbe pour who are sick, the greater part Car, and their bodies remain unburied, which in creases the impurity of tbe atsaospbere. These disastrous efiects are s-ravated by tbe want of physicians, saedicines and subsistence. SATURDAY, APRIL S7, 163. TKMPULSXCB MX3TTX3.

It is now five hundred and sixty-two years sioce Sir William Wal lace look shelter in the tree referred to, and thereby saved his life, yet the tree is still in a flourishing state. Every true Scott cannot but gase with adsni ration on this proud relic of Mauld lang syne."
