Actnal Surrender of Joe Smith?Fanny Seen**, Ac Ac. According to St. Louis papers of the 23ih ait., Joe Smith has actually surrendered hinisJf a pn soncr to U-ov Ford, of Illinois. What he will do, or whet will be done with him, remains to be seen. The excirement against hint was very great; at Carthage, it was hard work to keep the people oil him. A correspondent of the St. Louis Republi can speaks of a scene which occurred at Carthage on the 25th ult. thue:? " A serious difficulty like to havn occurred this morn ing, and which ban aomawhat disturbed the harmony thut haa existed. When Joe arr.ved last night, a great crowd wa* at Hamilton's, anxious to see hint. The Gov ernor requested them te leave, aud that he would gratify them with a sight of Joa this morning. Accordingly, this moruiDg, the Governor and Gen. Deming. with Joe and Hiram, passed in front of the McDonough line: Do ming introducing Joe and H. a* General Joseph anil Hi ram Smith, the Carthage Greys accompanying them by orders of the General. Ry the time they got rousd, the Greys conceived that they had been appointed as an escort to honor Joe, which insulted them m much ; and aa soon as Joe got to Hamilton's, they marched past the house, raising a shout ol hisses and groans which made Joe taint. The word went round as soon as they reached their camp, that they were to he put under arre>t, and their arms taken from them, for this insult to Hit Holiness. Their blood was up in a mo. ment, their muskets charged with ball; and they declared that they would die before they would give up their arms. The excitement in the camp was ntense tor a few mi nutes, and until the Governor was sent for. He addressed them, stating that they were acting in the capacity of guards to Joe, end not as an escort; and that if an order lor their arrest had been issued, it should be instantly counterananded. They applauded him, and quiet was re stored; but it has created a feeling of dlsaotistuction in the minds of the McDonough troops, who would have been directed to arrest them. The Governor is, I think, firm, but disposed to be prudent, and, as is proper for him to do nothing contrary to law. The Warsaw iorcea arrived here a c >uple of hours ago, and are now returning, ra ther dissatisfied with the prospect of a fracas. It will he mostly those who volunteer of the troops, who will go to ' " isih" Nauvoo It is, I think, the design to provoke, il possible, the Mormums there into some act of imprudence that might justify an attack, and Uie destruction of some pro as a lei perty, as a lesson to them. This, 1 think, will be the re suit. How far it may he carried, who knows? Smith and his Council started for Carthage on Monday, 24th ult., arrived there at midnight, and were to be exa mined on the 25th. Joe will be set free on hia giving bail; but it is said a body of 200 horse troop mean to fol low him until they kill him. In consequence ol the present excitement attend ing the Mormon outrages, and in connection with the. above news,we give the following as a piece of history for future ages. [From Nauvoo Neighbor, June 12.] An ORDiMAncK Concsaninu Liar.is, aud for Other PuRrosKs ?Whereas the saints in all ages of the world, have suffered persecution hnd death, by wicked and cor rupt men under the garb of a more holy appearance of re ligion ; and whereas the church of Jesus Christ of Lat ter day Saints Irom the moment that its first "truth siraDg out ot the earth" till now, has been persecuted with death, destruction, and extermination ; and whereas men, to lul til the scriptures, that a man's enemies are they of his own household, have turned traitors in the church and com bined and leagued with th? most corrupt scoundrels and villians that disgrace the earth nnhnng, for the heaven daring and damnable purpose of revenge on account ol disappointed projects ol speculation, fraud and unlawful designs, to rob and plunder mankind with impunity, and wheieas such wicked and corrupt men have greatly faci litated their unlawful designs; horrid intentions and murderous plans by polluting, degrading and convert ing the files,ings and utility of the press, to the sin smoking and blood stained rain of innocent communities, by publishing lies, false statements ; color ing the truth, slandering men, womeu, children, socio ties, and countries, by polishing the characters of black legs, highwaymen aud murderers, as vlrtuous;and where as a horrid, bloody, secret plan, upheld, sanctioned, and largely patronized by men, in Nauvoo and out of it, who boast that all they want for the word "go," to exterminate or ruin the Latter day Saints, is, for them to do "one" un lawtul act, and the work shall be done, is now fostered, cherished, and maturing in Nauvoo, by men too, who helped to obtain the very charter they would break ; and sooie of them drew up and voted for the very ordinances they are striving to use as a "scare crow" to frighten the surrounding country in rebellion, mobbing and war; and whereas, while the blood of our brethren, from wells, holes, and naked prairies, and the ravishment of female virtue, from Missouri, and the smoke from the altars ol infamy, prostituted by J. C. Bennett, and continued in the full tiJc of experiment and disgraceful damnation, by the very self called fragments of a body of degraded men that have got up a press in Nauvoo, to destroy tho cbaiter of the city ; to destroy Mormonism, men, women, and chil dren, as Missouri did, by force of arms ; by fostering laws that emanate from corruption, and betray with a kiss : wherefore to honor the State "f Illinois, and tiiose patrio,Q. who gave the charter, and lor the benefit, con vene. c, health, nun htq.pines* ot mid city ; bee. 1. tie it ordained by the City Council of the city ol Nauvoo, That it any person or peraoua ahall write or publish, in said city, any false statement, or libel any ol the citizens, (or the purpose of exciting the public mind against the chartered privileges, peace, and good order ot said city, or shall slander, (according to the dehn'ticu ol slander, or libel by Blackstone or.'vnt, or the ret in the statute ol' Illinois,) any portion of the iuuabitants of Said city, or bribe any portion of the citizens of naid city, for malicious purposes ; or in any manner or form excite the prejudice of the community against any por tion of the citizens of said city, for evil purposes, he, she, or they, shall be deemed disturbers of the pi ace, and upon conviction before the Mayor, or Municipal Court, shall be fined in any sum not exceeding live hundred dol lars, or imprisoned six months, or b ith, at the discretion ot said M a> or or Court. Sec 3. Be it further ordained,That nothing in the fore going section shall )m> so construed us to inteitere with the light of any person to be tried by a jury of his vicinage ; with the lieedom of speech or the liberty of the press, according to the most liberal mearuugof the constitution, the dignity of freemen, th? voice ot truth, and the rules ol vntue. Sec 3. And be it further ordained, That this ordinance shall be in force from and after it! passage. Passed, June 10,181-1 G?0. W. HARRIS, Pres't. pro tern. W. Richards, Recorder. This curious and remarkable ordinance which caused the destruction of the Nauvoo Expositor, and the subjoined extract from Governor Ford's proclamation, were the means of bringing Joe Smith to what he now is?a prisoner in the handx oi Gov. F. [Krom the St. Louis Republican, June 30.] In hit address to the Mayor and City Council uf Nau voo, alter reciting the lacu the Governor uses the follow ing deprecatory, expostulating and threatening language: 1 now expieM to you my opinion, that your cor.uuci iu deiiioyiiig the press was a very gross outiage upon the luws and liberties ol the people. U may havu Linen lull ol libels, hut this did not auihouse you to destroy it ,'i here are mauy newspapers in this State which have beeu wrougluiiy abusing me lor moruthau a year; and yet such is my regaid tor the liheitiesol the press, and the rights ol a tree people, iu a republican government, that 1 would shed the last diup ot uiy blood to protect those presses tiom any illegal violence. You have violated the constitution in at leuat lour panculars. You have viola ted that part of It which declaies mat the printing presses snail Lie Iree, being responsible lor the abuse iheivot, and ihus the iruili may be giveu iu evidence. This aiucle ol me constitution contemplates that the propuetors ol e libellous press may be sued lor private damage, or may be luuicied criminally, and that upou trial Uiey should havaaright to give the truth in evidence. In this case the proprietors have no notice of the proceeding. You have also assumed to yourselves more power than you are entitled to, in relation to writs of habeas corpus, under your charter. I know that you have been told by lawyers, for the purpose of gsioing your favor, that you have this power to any extent In this they have de cetved you lor their own baso purposes Your charter aupposea that you may pass ordinances, a breach ol which will result in the imprisonment of the off nder. Kor the purpose ol ensuring more speedy relief to such persons, authority was given to the Municipal Court to issue writs of habeas corpus in all cases arising under the ordinances of the city. It was never supposed by the le gislature,-nor can the language of your charter be tor tured to mean, that a jurisdiction was intended to be con ferred, which would apply to all cases of imprisonment, under the general laws of the State or of the United States us well as the city ordinances. It has also been reserved to you to make the discovery, that a newspaper charged to tat scurrilious or libellous, may he legally abated or removed, aa a nuisance. In no other State, Cuunty, city, town or territory in the United States, has ever such a thing been thought of before.? Such an act, at this day, would not be tolerated even in ICngland. The result of my deliberations on this subject is, that 1 will have to require you and all persons in Nauvoo, accused or sued, to submit in all cases implicitly to the process of the Courts, and to interposa no obstacles to an arrest, either by wnrrant or habeo* corpus or otherwise ; ami that all the people of the city of Nauvoo shall make and contiiiuo the moat complete submission to the laws of the State, and the precepts of the Courts and Justices of the Peacs. In the particular case now under consideration, I re quire nny and ail of you who nro or shall be accused, to submit yourselves to be arrested by the same constable, by virtue of the aame warrant, and be tried before the same magistrate, whose authority has heretofore been re sisted. Nothing short of this can vindicate the dignity of violated law, and allay the just excitement of the people. ?????? You know the excitement of the public mind?do not tempt it too far. A very little matter may do a very great fo.i"ry, and If you are disposed to continue the causes ol excit* ment, and render force necessary to cause submis sion, I would say, that your city was built, as it were, uiion kegs of powder, which a very little spurk may ex plode. It is my intention to do all 1 can to preserve the peace, and even if obliged to call the militia, to prosecute the war so as not to involve the innocent, and comprehend all in the aame punishment. But excitement is a matter which news very last upon men when a#?embi*d. Th atfjirt, 1 much feer, may miumn a revolutionary charac ter, and the men may disregard the authority of their ofticen. 1 tell you plainly, that il ever auch aubmiiaion ia not made, aa I In vc indicated, I will he obliged to call out the militia, and it a few thousands will uot be sufficient, many thouaanda will be. U the individuala accuse'! cannot be found when re quired by the Constable, it will be conaidered by mo aa equivalent to a refusal to be arretted, and the militia will be ordered accordingly. More Particulars of toe (treat Flood.?The St. Louis papers give the following additional par ticulars of the terrible flood at the west [From the St. Louis Papers, June 38 ] Taking into view the whole region within the range of the inundation, we find that the length of the line affected by it ia, on the Miaaouri, MX) milea ; on the lllinoia ISO ; on the Upper and Low er Mississippi, 1,400, and on the se Miaaouri, auch aa the " ?eral affluents of the Miaaouri, such as the Kansas, "sage, Grand River, Re., some 300 more ; making the total of linear measurement not lest than 3,44)0 milci. This length multiplied by 3} miles, which expresses the average breadth of the flood, would give, for the whole country ? usually dry, but laid under water?a auparflciei of 0,000 lilea, i " square miles, or three millions, eight hundred and forty thousand acres. There are over five hundred persons ut present In our City, who have been driven from their homes by the flood, and others are hourly arriving. The greater portion are in the most destitute condition, and many el them quite ill from the cxpoaure they have already experienced. The committee ot relief have acted with great prompt ness, and are doing all In their power to alleviate the sufferings of these unfortunate people. Six hundred dol. I art had been collected during yesterday, and one hun dred appropriated tothose in the most immediate necessity. We imagine it ia hardly necessary to nuke an appeul to the benevolence of our fellow citizen* in aid of these suffer ing strangers, for St. Louis hat never been found wanting in charitable feeling or action. [From the St. Louis Republican, June 38] The accounts of the Aood are moat disastrous. Kaa kaskia, Chester, Sic. are ruined. The office of the Repub lican at the lormer place has been undermined, and the press and materials lost in the water. Thu business of Missouri and Illinois la sadly deranged. Farmers, me chanics, gardeners, all have suffered : and brickyards, woodyards.?and the necessaries of life along tha rivers have been destroyed. Millions of dollars are lost by the flood. The F.ditor went on a tour with the Mayor in search of La Bute a Reynard, the only point of land out of water, in 1784. At Bon Secour, there are encamped, nil in open camps, one hundred and twentytwo persons. Several of these families left their homes with from four to nine children, and with less than fifty pounds of flour and a small quantity of meat?some of them have been six and eight days in their encampment. They have gi?ne rally lost the most, some all of their clothes, and when the flood subside* they will not be in a better condition. In all, we believe wo may say, that we ascertained some 'hing ot the comlitiou of full three hundred persons. Hence up to the Cantien, end how much further we had not the means of ascertaining, they are scattered along the Bluffs. We saw, yesterday, a sight which would have drawn pity from a heart ot stons: A large family of young children (six in number.) without lather or mother, who were dependent on the charity of those who knew their parents. How they subsisted before we did not learn, but to see them without home and dependent for shelter on the hand of kindness, and that shelter only such as boughs, or under tents can afford, with scanty covering, and all the attendant evils, made us feel deeply how much those who are subject to thesa privations, should sympathize and minister (o the wants of others There were many other settlements which we had not time to visit. A few are lodged in houses, a large num ber in the same room, hut generally they are in rude tents, erected on the spur of the moment. A few we found with Indian or Sioux tents, but in general thay have no other covering than branches of trees laid thiok on polls or sheets made into tents. Yesterday morning, the Indiana brought up from Kas kaskia the Sisters of Charity at the Convent, the Priests connected with the Churcn at that place, and several families, and tueh furniture as they had saved. The town is from ten to twenty feet under water. At V o'clock r. M. on the 37th, the river was at a stand. Outrageous Conduct at Annapolis.?We re gret much to be informed of a disgraceful riot which took place yes'erday at Annapolis, between some fiersona who proceeded there on board the steamboat Co umbia and a portion of the Annapolitana. Several boat* went down irom tbia city taking with them two or three thousand person*. Some time alter dinner a difficulty took place, which gave rise to excited feeling. When the bell of the Columbia was ringing for the last time preparatory to putting out, a large party ap proached the wharf, much enraged, and commeuccj throwing stones, brickbats, 8cc. into tha boat. These wero returned with equal force from those on board, keeping up a regular lire until the boat, with diffi culty, made out into the water. Several persona were hit and considerably bruised, though not dangerously in jured. Pistols weie also discharged from the steamer, end muskets from the shore, but fortunately the bails did not tako effect, except one, which, when nearly spent, struck a pcrsenger on the cheek, leaving a slight scar. We learn that several of the lingleaders, bo h of Balti more and Annapolis, have been arrested utui imprisoned The Columbia was compelled to come to Baltimore, leav ing behind many of those she had taken down. T he military were called out for the purpose of preserv ing order and quelling the riot. We learn further that the regular soldiers at Fort Severn were alse ordered out. ?Italtimore Palriut, July a. Cattle.?The Chdiireton, Kanawha, Va , He publican of the 25th ult. hue the fo.lowing paid graph, interesting to dealers in cattleThe season of the year is fully come when the tutrchasers of catliu from the Fast, till within a lew years past, were in the habit ot visiung the neighboring counties in this part ol the State, gathering large droves of tine cattle, and distributing ameug tiie people pretty sums of the needful. The dru vers at the Fust or West ate informed, that there are, in the counties adjoining Kanawha, a large number of the best cattle, from three to seven j ears old, in prime order for driving. In Logan county alone several droves might tie purchased upon reasonable terms. It is a well known lact, that stock cattle raised in our mountainous country stand the drive over the Alieghanies better, and more readily take on fat, than the cattle purchased in Ohio, on the prairies of Indiana or Illinois. The stcclc ol cattle here fur two or three years is now mostly ou hand. The nerds have not been culled. We can, therefore, confident ly say to Fastem men engaged in the business, that they con here readily make up, and on reasonable terms, as fine droves ol cattle as ever crossed the mountains.

In diatresa Makes the trouble less," the people of New York, as regards the police ar rangements of the municipal authorities, are not quite so bad oif as they suppose, if we are to judge by the complaints of our neighbors in Philadelphia. But we must not give credit to our police for more than they deserve; we think it is more owing to the good sense of the inhabitants themselves that we have not had similar outbreaks in this city to those which recently disgraced Philadelphia, rather than to the vigilance of our police. In the latter place, to the disgrace of the Authorities, " The creatures are at their dirty work again." Very recently, the (iremen in the neighborhood ot South wark have been creating disturbances and threatening the destruction of lde und property to such an extent, that the military have been obliged to be called out to prevent the threats being carried into execution, the old women, called police, not being found sufficient in energy for the purpose. This, and previous occurrences, have aro some ot the most intelligent of the residents t tion, and a large portion ol the community are loudly calling for reform in the police,as well us in the tire depuitir.en? of that city ; and, it they only unceasingly persevere, they must eventually suc ceed in their wishes, it is the only thing that can secure them for the future from such dia bolical outrages a3 have of late disgraced them. The only effectual remedy will be found in the establishment of a system of police calculated to emuruce the county as well as the city; m the re organizat.on of the fire companies, and the ap pointment, in sufficient numbers, of such men as are willing and capable of doing their duty when called u, on?not par'y tools and political paiti'/.ans, men who, at ttie end ol every year, will be liable to be discharged trom their situations, no matter how well they may have done their duty in the meanwhile, because those who were the cause ol their appointment have been removed froin office by the wi I of the people. Nor should a parcel of idle youths, with all the impudence and black guardism of the greatest rowdies, be Allowed to usurp the places of the more advanced in years, wise and good inen. Upon no occasion are greater toresight, judgment, and coolness required than hi cases of fire; yet what is the tact 1 that it is quite a novelty to see a man upwardi of 20 years ol age accompanying an engine on one of lliese deplora ble events. " Oh, retorin it all together," not only in Philadelphia, but iiearer home. They manage these things better ia other places; why cannot it be done in this cay as well as in Philadelphia, and other places where the evil ex ists! The injury to person and property occasioned by t ic frequent riots among firemen, or among boys who are permitted to drag the engines through the streets at pleasure, demands that the hie de partment be differently arranged. It is the interest ol property-holders, and of all who desire to have peace and order preserved. This Bubject has been trequeiitlybroughi under the consideration of the ci'.y Councils, and yet there Iibs beeu little or no change. Are the Members ot these boards at raid to act? apprehensive, perhaps, that they may lose a few votes at coming elections. The citizens ot lioston were subject to these firemen's riots tor a time, out the Council took the matter in hand firmly and resolutely, anu by judicious enactments, have pro vided a most efficient tire department, unaccompa nied by the scenes which so frequently disgrace Philadelphia and Baltimore and this city. Ih ^"8 lon the lire Ri Ptt,atus is under the control of . " city authori'1?*, and men are regularly paid their service8- Let the same rule lie adopted . other places, and they will have the like benelic . result. The city authorities should take charge ' the lire engines, tec ?provide engine houses with pair of horses and! a keeper to each?organize companies to wi rk the engines, the members ol winch shou'd be compensated for their services; arid prohibit, under severe |ienalties, all persons other than those regularly employed, trom taking the engines out. The proposed reform would cost little, if any thing, aoove the sums now paid ; for there would be no wear and tear of apparatus by uselessly drag ging it through the streets, or wanton destruction ot it by riotous contests, and the dreadful disturbances which have so very recently disgraced our country, and so frequently set all law ana order at defiance, to a considerable extent, be put nn end to. Some of (he lire companies are not only efficient at fires, but orderly at all times; and they merit ap probation. We are confident that the members of those companies feel solicitous lor such a reforma tion nt the Hystem as shall secure the public tran quility; and that they would aid in bringing the matter to this much to be desired consummation.

[From Philadelphia Papers, July 6 J A rumor became current yesterday afternoon, that a car load of muskets had burn taken into the church of Ot Philip de Neri, in Queen street. This caused great excite ment, and as dark approached crowJs began to gather about the corners ot the streets, in the vicinity. This crowd had increased to such a degree that, at 8 o'clock. Alderman Hortz despatched information to the Sheriff Mr. McMichael came to the spot Immediately, and with Alderman Hertz and Palmer proceeded into the church ; watchmen were posted in front, aided by a posse of citi zens who had volunteered. Atter a search of about half an hour, the Sheriff and aldermen came out with aliout twelve muskets, which they had found in the interior. These were given to the volunteer posse, who stationed themselves in iront of the church, and tried the guns with the ramrods, and proved to the crowd that they were not loaded. They then marched off to the Commissioners' llail, where tney de posited them. The Sheriff' then addressed the crowd to the following effect "1 have, in company withJAlJermen Hortz Rnd Palmer, been into the church,'and have taken possession of all the arms we were ablo to find. A number of your own citi zens, selected by your own aldermen, arohereto prevent any more arm* from being taken in, aa well as to protect the church from injury. I therefore beg of you ail, as good citizens, to disperse, and retire to your homes. Kurther measures will he taken to-morrow to alley the ex citement and to preserve the peace." A portion of the assemblage here cheered the sheriff,and a few of those around retired, but *he great body remained upon the ground as late as eleven o'clock. Before pro ceeding into Southwark tho Sheriff called upon General Patterson, who Issued the necessary orders, and about eleven o'clock, Cant. Hill's company of City Guards ar rived on the ground. They soon cleared the street, and placed sentries at tho corner of Second and Third streets. At half past eleven, the crowd of persons had nearly dis perse). Some excitement occurred at St John's Church, In 13th street, near Market, caused by the ringing of the bell, and about 300 persons gathered upon the ground. In a short time, however, the crowd dispersed. Several volunteer companies are under arms, and the late peace police in almost every ward in Moyamensing and Soutkwark, have reorganized, and hold themselves in readiness to uusll any outbreak. A report was Drought in to the Sheriff yesterday morn ing that a party ol rioters had made an attack upon the tents and persons remaining on the ground occupied by the American Republicans tor their grand display of fire works, and had committed gross outrages. The report was coupled with statements that the attack was of a par tizan character and had been premeditated, and would probably be followed by other excesses. The Sheriff im mediately despatched an officer to the place, who insti tuted isquiries into the mstter and ascertained that a dis turbance had occurred, but that the accounts of it were greatly exaggerated. A party of rowdies, under the in fluence of rum, got skylarking among the tents and re freshment tables about two o'clock on the morning of the Sth. and by way of giving a point to their lawless and riotous sport, threw tragments of ham at the female atten dant* at the tablet, and greased their fsces with them af terwards. They upse- some ot the tables and comported themaelTes otherwise in an outrageous manner. Capt. Hill's company has just arrived, and the crowd hat dispersed. We learn that the firearms belonged to the State Arsenal, and had been placed in the church agreeably to the orders of Governor Porter and Gen. Pat terson.
