Olnev, one of the Mormon Klders, containing revelations of tne iniqui ties practised hy the " Twelve" at Nauvoo, from which we make the following extracts Although a* 1 have written that I found Nauvoo a sink of iniquity, I do not mean to be understood that all are so practising upon their own Judgment, but hundreds are so bound up in 'he belief that the twelve are pure, paying no regard to 'to reasonableness of their require ments that it is often said : " If we obey counsel and commit sin in so doing, it will not lie at our doors but will bo answered upon the heads of the twelve for so teaching us." This is the confidence which that people havo in the twelve, to the exclusion of all honor, truth, justice, peace, mercy an<t righteousness. The building of the Nu'tvoo House Is wholly abandon ed, its hare walls and laige piles of brick near by, ex posed to tho weather, presenting a striking contrast to the view which would he presented if the measures of tho martyred prophet were to be carried out as he de siguad. A desperate effort is being made to tiniah the Temple, although hundreds, yea thousands of dollars of the tithing ure appropriated'to the subsistence of the twelve, the bishops and t their prostitutes, thereby requir ing an extra amount of tithing to what would be neces sary for the Use to which it should be applied. In view of such a state of things, my heart bleeds and my feel ings burst forth in sorrow to think of the many who must ibe, as I am, sadly disappointed, when they learn that thsy are led hy those who are utterly destitute of every principle that tends to exalt a man in the scale of being, or make him noble in the eyes of his Creator, in consequence of which, our mites which have been joy fully cast in for the building of the House of the Lord, are applied to the subsistence and aggrandizement of themselves and their prostitutes ; and the honest hearted left no relief or consolation but to mourn over the depra vity of fallen man, and strive to shun the vortex of ruin into which others are daily plunging. And such are the men, influenced by such passions, who have only to speak the word, and no crime is too horrible, no act, however mean and degrading, too low for their police, (as they are called,) to perform, in order to carry out the designs of their superiors. The twelve ofton meet in council, to give advice to any who choose to ask it, and also to give orders to those in authority under them, and on one such occasion I have witnessed where three six shooters (revolving pis tols) where laid on the centre table and one fifteen shoot er (rifle) stood in the corner to protect the persons of the twelve, although an armed guard are posted every night around the city, and every street guarded by police, armed with (some of them) large heavy canes with an iron or steel point, also pistols and howie knives ; and others around the houses of the twelve, thus shielding them from any intrusion in the nighttime, and in the day time they are (unless they are secreted for fear of being arrested for some of their misdemeanors) walking the streets in their broadcloths while their followers are toiling to support them iu their luxury and extrava gance. As it respects the late troubles in the county, I am pre pared to say in truth as follows : The twelve by their unbounded influence over their subjects, and by tea"?,ng that the people round about them are gentiles, and that the saints are to " suck the milk of the gentiles," have created such a state of feeling in the breasts of their followers that they think it is no sin for them to " suck a little," just now, and in fact 1 have heard prominent men, such as high I'riests and Pre siding officers, say that if a gentile comes in their way, the best way to do is to put lnm " out of the way," as quick as possible. Such sentiments thrown out by the people at Nauvoo have not failed to create a response on the part of tho settlers, and the feeling has been fanned into a flame that will ere spring (I opine) burn too hot tor Mormons. Yea,] even to their expulsion from the state, and for this reason. A stipulation has been mutually agreed to by both Mormons and Anties, that hostile operations ana man oeuvres should cease on both sides,and also that]the Mor mom should leave Nauvoo so soon as grass grows suffi cient for teams to subsist upon. Yet still the Mormons have been visited by writs te bring some offenders (of which class there is many) to justice ; which serves as a pretext for the Mormons to send out armed forces, numbering from 60 to 200, who on horseback Jscour the prairie between Nauvoo and Carthage, (as they say,) in search of " Prairie Chickens;" and latterly, as i( this was not enough, a body of these men have been to Carthage, and entirely broke up the court which was in session ut that place, (so I heard one of the men engaged in the transaction declare,) so that none of the brethren could be tried at that court if ar rested; but probably there will be none arrested, foi Brigham says to the people to "give them what is in their guns first, and then use them to the best advantage before they submit to an arrest." Tne judge of court, in company with some of the law yers of the county, visited Nauvoo to inquire the reason of the breaking up of tho court in such a manner, but received nothing satisfactory, except a tirade of abuse from John Taylor, (one of the twelve,) which lie (the judge) carried away rankling and festering in his own bosom. Another evidence of their purity and holiness may he gathered from the fact that at the houses of aome of the twelve, I have teen from three to five young female*, whoie prolific appearance indicate* a great increase of posterity in the temporal kingdom, to say nothing of a ?treat number of married women who ate sealed to ?lif erent ones in high standing in the church, and (as I have been taught from their own mouths,) believe it to be their privilege before Clod to raise up as many children here in the flesh as they can, that they may have a great er kingdom to rule over in eternity ; and on being asked how many women it is one's privilege to beget cnildren with, tho answer was : " As many as he can maintain." Thus making it an object among themselves, (except the twolve, tho bishops, the Temple committee, and some other privileged characters,) who help themselves out of iio funds, to Temple fuods, to enter largely into speculative engage ments, that thereby, upon their income, they may sup port (if they have no husbands to support them) those unhallowed and polluted vestiges of humanity, with whom they practise such abominations under the garb of righteousness, as must make the heavens weep, and the oaithfcmourn to witness the fallen and degraded state of those who arc to l>e a "ligtht unto the world, and also tfee saviours of men." Another important item in the present teachings of tin twelve, is that "at the time of receiving their washii,^ and annointtngs.or their endowments, all marriages will be declared void, and overy person have the privilege ot choosing for him or herself, by a mutual agreement, that ii, if two choose to remain together, it is their privilege to do so, but neither one ran retain the other, if he or she chooies to depart anddive with anothe. Oh shame ! where is thy blush 7" Kutthermore, it is said by tho redoubtable Brigham, that "when the church once gets away from Nauvoo, if any finds any fault with the twelve, their heads shall come otf, and none shall ever return to tell their tales !" i-,Another (of his sayings is, "It is better that fifty inno cent men should sutler death, than that any crime should be proven against any one of the twelve, even if he were guilty !" Another is, "The bible is no more to the people of this generation than a last year's almanac, for I am all the bible needful for the people now, if they will obey my counsel." These ar? a few of the sentiments of the far-famed president of the twelve, and I must acknowledge they are peifectly consonant with his practice and character. Another testimony of the.purity of that people is the fact that a high priest of that place told me that he had i witnessed the deaths of five mobocrats at the hands of the Mormons, on the pruirie, and also that the catfish in i the Mississippi had scraped tho bones of some who had , better have kept away from Nauvoo. The " annointing and washing" as it is jocosely 1 called, is practised frequently upon those offenders who I aie not judged worthy of death, which is covering them from head to foot witn filth obtained from the vault of soma necessary in the city, and then casting them into the river. Another henrt-rending fact in the present history of' Nauvoo is, that hundreds of honest hearted females are there, who have no means with which to get away, and scarce any means of subsistence there, except at the ex pense of virtue, and who are continually subject to the importunities of those fiends in human shape who, after having gratified their passion for lust, will, straightway, upon the public stand, declare before (iod and the An gels, that no system of spiritual wifery is practised or toleiated by them, when perhaps some of their victims are at the very time upon their knees in secret, beseech ing Ood to lorgive them for yielding in an unguarded moment to their seducers, and to open a way lor their escape from the folds of their destroyers, that, perchance, by a life of morality, virtue and piety, they may atone for the weakness of a moment, and at last gain an in heritance with the saints ol (iod. Think not, my readers, that this is a fancy pieco, or the suggestions of an over o?cited imagination, for it is hut a lew out of thousands of tho testimonies that might be brought to show that virtue aud truth have lied from their midst, and vice, in almost every form, has stalked forth, and holds, un checked hy any pure principle, the away over almost the entire community, while their publications? Timn and .Season* and Neigkhor?would lain make the people at a distance believe that Nauvoo is pure as was kden at first, and that the people are the innocent but persecuted people which they once were. The Rath Care in Hoston.?The jury in the case ol Thorium Baldwin, charged with committing un outrage on his niece, aged 13, which had occupied the Municipal^ Court several days, came into the Court on Friday morning, and signified that they had not been able to agree upon a verdict. Counsel for the do fence mude amotion lor another trial immediately. Judge H ashburn said ho would continue the case to the De cember term, und, on motion being tnaue by Mr. Dust in lor a reduction of the hail fixed in the I'olice Court at $1,000, the Court remarked, that as tho case was more larorable to him?the jury not having agreed it would place the bail at only >600. Charles (Varner was next put on trial on two counts, for adultary and lawd cohabitation. Vardict, guilty. Americano-Chinese Treaty.

The Rescue.?The schooner Commodore. Capt. Dorrett, which sailed from Buffalo last Friday evening, loaded with pork and flour, went down as far as Erie, was driven back as far as the Islands,and return ed to make the pier yesterday evening. She drew so much water, and the sea was so violent, that she struck the bar opposite the mouth of the river, lost her head way, became unmanageable, and drifted upon the east side of the east pier, not far from the light-house. She struck violently upon the rocks, and the wind and waves thrashed her around most unmercifully. Her fly ing jib-boom was carried away, and she soon began to sink. The men on board were overwhelmed with the spray and waves that poured in over the starboard quar ter, and drenched them from head to foot. Their con dition was getting to be serious. The vessel reeled about and staggered like a drunken man : the distance from the pier was not thirty feet, yet no human being could have swam through such a surf. Besides, sailors are notoriously bad swimmers. Great sympathy was excited : more than a thousand people gathered on the pier to aid the unfortunate wrecked, although the spray nroke over the pier every minute. A communication was finally made to the vessel by casting a line : the peak halyards were dotached from the foresail gaff, and the lower ond sent ashore. The men were then hauled ashore through the air, one at a time, being fastened to the lines, in a style net uncommon in similar dangers of a shipwreck. The contrivance was successful three men came oft first?then Captain Dorrett, and lastly the mate, though not without getting a dip into the tremen dous waves, which seemed to leap up into the air, to seize the prey that was about to oscape. As the last man, the mate swung out of tho surf, and stood upon the pier, the multitude of citizens that had stood silent in sur|>enso, watching the transit of the poor sailors, burst into one spontaneous and tremendous cheer, which rose high above the roar of the fierce gale and the crashing of the waves. The poor fellows were wet from head to foot, and almost frozen with forty-eight hours exposure to the violence and inclemency of the weather. The t OL-modore soon after sunk on the spot, her deck being still above tho water. She belongs to Wheeler Bar tram, and is nine or ten yeais old.? Cleveland Plaindeal er, 1 Of A rnjf.

As the lenion of Congress draws near, the "chivalry" troops are being muttered and driUed, for the part they are to take in the national drama, loon to be enacted.? The Mercury it the fugleman in all these military exer ci?e?, and it is the organ of the most belligerent claa* of Mr. Calhoun's followers. The talent, spirit, and direct nesa with which it speaks, would give /.est to a bad cause, and that in which it is now enlisted, is esteemed, at least by those who touch its keys, to be the most me. ritorious and patriotic. South Carolina has nevor, and will never forgive Mr. Calhoun's summary dismissal from the Department of State, and more especially as his place was supplied by one so prominently identified with that interest, which he had so long and so zealously combatted. On this act count the blow was made more severe, and the reflec' tion conceived to be more flagrant. From that day to this there has been a systematic organization going for ward to harrass the administration, the first fruits of which are visible in the stand taken against Oregon, the war upou the Union, and the proclamation for a minimum tarilt'aud no compromise,short of a horizontal scale of 20 percent. These,however, are but the initiatory steps to a more public and official stand, designed to be taken at the meeting of the legislature in December, when reso lutions will be passed, affirming in even more positive terms the position of the State, on all tho great questions of the day. Proceedings to this effect are now in prepa ration, and you may look for a " Declaration of Rights," second only to that which shook the palace of George the Third, some seventy odd years ago No opinions will be minced, no opposition concealod, no petitions addressed- it will be language of asserted justice, and defiance in its vindication. The negative hosti lity to the administration will then assume the form of decision, and the mask being thrown off, South Carolina, which so much contributed ill this section of the country to the election of Mr. Polk, will place herself in an attitude of irreconcileable enmity.? She will take no middle course that tho President may adopt upon the tariff, and sustain no extreme one upon the foreign relations. She intends mischief und will have a quarrel, even if put to the trouble of fomenting it her self. One result that will grow out of this movement, will be the election of Mr. Calhoun to the Senate, in place of Judge Huger, who wishes to retire, and who will resign at the proper crisis. If it be determined that Mr. Cal houn should be early upon the ground, then he will be elected as soon as the Legislature convenes if not, Judge Huger will, in all probability, proceed to Wash ington and relinquish his post when the tariff discussion comes up, in which Mr. Calhoun will be called upon to participate by tho unanimous voice of this State and the whole Free Trade interest?an appeal which he cannot resist if he would. Again: he will be summoned by all the commeicial sections to enact the same part in regard1 to Oregon, which he so.patriotically and ably duchurged in the settlement of the Ashburton Treaty. Take it the n as a "fixed fact," that Mr Calhoun returns to the Senate, anil that South Carolina enlists in the opposition against Mr. Polk and his measures. A feeble effort has been making here to put forward tho name of our member of Congress, Mr. I. K. Holme*, as a candidate for the Speakership. To those who know his standing at home, and his position at Washington, it is needless to say, it cannot be intended in seriousness. A great deal of feeling lAis been excited against the collector of this port, Mr. Grayson, for his unjustifiable conduct in removing one of the best, most honest, and competent of his subordinates, alleging no other cause than that the democratic party demanded the dismissal of a man, who most unfortunately for him, has never ta ken any part in politics but by his silent vote. The cir cumstances are such as to cause much indignation in the community, and to bring down the severest animad versions upon the collector. GrayBon, it appears, was appointed by the whigs in 1841, as being the most radi cal of the candidates in his politics, and the most obnox ious to the democratic party. Henry L. Pinckney, the former member of Congress, was dismissed to fulfil this part of the work of reform. After the election of Mr. Polk and the discharge of Mr. Calhoun, the South Carolina Delegation, as I understand, addressed a letter to the President, requesting, in the most positive terms, that no removal for opinion's sake should be made in this State?that they desired the few whig* in office to be retained, because they were trust worthy and reputable, and, in line, solicited that no change of any sort should occur in the Federal appoint ments. In this way Grayson was retained very much against the wishes of tho body of the party. It seems, however, he conceived himself indebted to Mr. Holmes for his retention, and, therefore, made this removal, to give some relative ol his a place. This is the story as it goes in Last Bay, and 1 believe it to be true in every es sential particular, only that the facts are more aggrava ted than I relate them. It is more confirmed too by the general belief, that Grayson is now identified with Holmes' faction, and that of Clapp, editor of the Mi reury , long to the I and some others who belong to the rule or ruin school, ; and who are now making trouble for the administration. It is also suggested that the gentleman dismissed, got his " walking papers" for happening to be a devout Catholic christian, and an adopted citizen of some thirty years standing?for this 1 do not vouch, however, having no other data than report, which I do not entirely credit. It is thought, to-day, that sufficient influence will be ' brought to have Grayson's name withdrawn from the .Senate, and a democrat substituted, as it is believed this breach of honor and flagrant outrage will defeat his no mination if submitted to that body, under a proper repre sentation of the facta. I hope you will be able to publish this for the edifica tion oi our benighted region, where, however, the light of the Herald contrives to perueate. to the exclusion ol almost all other foreign newspaper illumination. 1 will have some very interesting information in my next. Hartford, Not. 13, 1845. S'tw York and Hartford Railroad?Magnetic Telegraph? Screw dissociation?License Law?Governor Baldwin's Vetoes?Lawyers?-Farming/on Canal?Fire?Enter prise of Hartford Papers?Eclipse. After sundry changes and trials, the Hartford and New Haven Railroad Company have secured the services of of Mr. Broadhead, of New York State, as their General Superintendent. Their road being (14 miles in length over 38 of which 3 trains run daily in winter and 3 in summer, and over 36 of which, three trains in winter and four in summer, conveying some 100,000 passengers annually?should have a first rate superintendent, as they now have, for their own interest and profit, and for the security of passengers lives, and the speedy trans mission of merchandise. Mr. Broadhead, the superintendent just appointed on the above road, has completed his survey report, inclu ding estimates, (cc. of the New York and Hartford pro posed road, to unite with the Harlem road at Danbury, which will next week be put to press. The survey is much more favorable, and the route is proved more fea sible, than its most sanguine friends anticipated. Wait until the report is issued, and then?\ous perrons. I regret to say that after one week's dickering and picking at the stock of the magnetic telegraph, there has not been subscribed this city's portion. It is all ow ing to haviDg been placed solely in the hands of "big bugs." The merchants and mechanics of this city stood ready to take every cent of the stock; but as it had been placed under the guardianship ot the banks and insu rance companies, the merchants a and mechanics would not touch ft. But they will have to take hold of it this week, and put to shame the (-300,000 to (1,300,000 cor porations that have made such an abortion in attempting to subscribe only (5,000 to its stock. Shame on such pusilanimity '. After much blustering and agitation in starting two steam cotton mills in this city, the past six months, with some (309,000 capital, at length the mountain has brought forth a mouse, in the shape ot a Hardware Joint Stock Co. to manufacture screws, lee. with a capital of (35,000 ! O, Peterson O, Lowell : But seriously, af ter all that has been said and done in regard to manufac tures in our city, we really expected better things. How ever, the mechanics in tnis city will undoubtedly say, " the smallest favors thankfully received, and larger ones in proportion." This concern is to tie located at the foot of State street?the Wall street of Hartford?in a large four story brick building, near the river. C onsiderable fuss is being made about our license laws having been signed as " assented to," by Governor Baldwin, instead of as constitutionally required to be, " approved." But it is all gammon; for it would have become a law without his signature, if he did not return it to the Legislature within three days after its trans mission to Iiim. Then how can it be null because ho wrote assented and approved .' This is a common sense view of the subject, whatever some of the lawyers may say of the legality of the law. Gov. Baldwin has a precious little sympathy with the masses of the whig party?he soars above them; he is a good lawyer, and undoubtedly a good man in society; but he neither has been, nor can he be, from his naturul feelings, a popular Gov. olConnecticut. Kor instance, at the recent session of our Legislature, he vetoed a bill passed to widen the draw of the Washington Bridge ovor the Housatonic river, which was passed because the present draw is too na row to admit tne ingress and egress of vessels that are now being and to be used in the wonderfully increasing trade on that stream. Yet the Governor vetoed it, because it was interfering with " vested rights." The devil take the accursed "vested rights" doctrine, when it interferes with common sense and justice to the community. And this same Wash ington Bridge Corporation charge 35 cents on each wa gon, and other vehicles in proportion, for crossing a nckety and dangerous uncovered bridge, of about one fifth of a mile in length ! However, the Legislature passed it into a law, notwithstanding Gov. II. appeared before them, and made his plea for " vested rights," in person. He was thus justly rebuked. And of the fifty- | eight public acts passed by that Legislature, one he ve toed?oue.he permitted to become a law without his sig nature?(this I should call a yuast veto)?lour he " as sented to." ,. , Is not this evidence enough that ho has little leilow feeling with the whig parry ' The amount of it is they always select some great lawyer ior Governor, who attends to his profession as heretofore, instead oi select ing common sense, practical business men. It is high time that this outrogeous practice of giving all the of fices Irom I list ice ol the Peace, and all clerkships, to Governor inclusive, to lawyers, should be put down with firmness. It is outrageous that this lawer-menopoly should exist, Irom the twopenny pettifoggers, who are too laty to earn their bread at their trades, turning law yer's clerks, and in two or three years hanging out the imposing shingle ol " Attorney and Counsellor-at-law," to the most successful lawyer at our bar. This, too, whilst the merchant, mechanic, and laboring men are bleeding liberally and continually at their purtea, and in their Time, to aid the election ol men who care not one tig about them, or their interest, no farther than to get their votes. It is time that these men who do the work and contribution to party funds should take a stand against this unrighteous monopoly. Among the lawyers of each party are a certain set, who meet at certain houses in this city, and cut and carve out the nomina tions prior to the Conventions! In the democratic ranks Gideon Welles, Esq., of this city, will probably be nominated for Governor. I no tice that he has been offered a ,$1700 clerkship in Wash ington. This is no go with him. If he cannot have something worthy of his talents from Mr. Polk, the de ? mocracy in this State will reward him. As for the whigs, who they will nominate, I cannot tell not being m their secrets enough to state; but this I do know, if they do not nominate a clean new ticket with a merchant, mechanic, or farmer for Governor, they will nest spring be defeated?mark that! Some malicious persona have twice this fall occasion ed bleaches in the the Earmington canal,the last one this week. This is outrageous. The people along the line of the canal should be grateful, especially the past dry season, when the canal was an excellent place to grow meadow grass-there having been just enough water in it for that purpose -that on the tow path being pretty well scorcued by the sun. But, seriously, the perpetra tors of these outrages, I trust, will he found out and sent to our Wethersfield seminary. Last eveuing two hams were consumed by fire?and therein two cows were burnt?this is the work of an in cendiary. It occurred a little before nine o'clock, and by the promptness of our firemen, not much other dam age was done to the surroundicg wood buildings. The barns were in Washington street, near the railroad com pany's new machine shop. A considerable quantity of nides from the contiguous tannery, was stored in one of the barns, and of course consumed. Although this fire was oi an hour's duration, commencing before 9 o'clock, still the Daily Morning; Courant ol this city, as usual, had not a word about it. To-morrow morning, (two days after the fire,) they will probably have six lines concerning it?judging of the future by the past The eclipse of the inoon this evening at half past seven to half past eight o'clock, was perfect, and would well pass for a total oue, although unheralded by our new spa pers, where we expoct to find all the news from the moon, as well as all the "mung"news ! Varieties. A sportsman in Philadelphia, tired of the slow method of killing ducks in the Delaware, in the usual way, stripped and plunged into the river, and hid him self among the bulrushes, intending, after the Indian fashion, to catch the ducks with his hand, and wring their necks, when the discharge of a gun, which came near killing him, set the birds to fiight. The sportsmen sent their dogs to bring in the game, who seized the swimmer by his hair, and brought him to shore, to the infinite amuzement of the gunners.

Other kinds ol mechanics are wanted, particularly cabinet and chair makers, and manufacturers of edge tools. De Tocqueville, in his recent work, speaking ol American women, says:?" As for myself I do not hesi tate to avow, that, although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, oBe of ex treme dependence, I have nowhere seen women occu pying a loftier position; and if 1 were asked, now I am drawing to a close of this work, in which 1 have spoken of so many things done by the Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought to be attributed, 1 should reply?to the superiority of their women."

The affair is said to have passed off pleasantly. A. Mason, manufacturer of tacks and brads, in Worcester, while adjusting his machinery, was caught by the skirts of his coat by the belt, and drawn up backwards over the shaft, between which and the ceiling there was only a space of lrt inches, and was thrown round upwards of 100 times before the machinery could be stopped Mis back was probably broken the first re volution. He died in a few moments. Mr. Mason was between .10 and t>0 years of age. Last week a boy living in Gates county, N.
