A slight snow fell in this vicinity on Tues day last. It soon vanished, however, be fore the warm sun of succeeding davs. Improvement. Our citizens have determined not to let the long winter evenings now coming on, pass entirely unimproved, arid have organized a Debating Club, which, if the plan is carried -out, will be productive of much good. At a meeting on Wednesday evening last, a Constitution was reported and adopted, officers elected under it, and means taken to secure a permanent and comfortable room for the winter. We sincerely hope that nothing will interfere to prevent the entire success of this much-needed and praise worthy movement. W. F. M. Amy, of Hyatt, left for Wash ington city on Monday the 9th inst.

Fr-B the St. Louis Republican. - Slaves Kidnapped in Missouri. : j Georgetown, Petti Co., Mo.,) -October S3, 1857. J Ma. Editor : This quiet little village is somewhat excited this morning in conse quence of the announcement made,1 that on last night three of Gen. George R. Smith negroes, and a yonth, who called himself Henry Ward Spencer, left, taking with theni five of the General's horses; Spencer came to Gen. Smith's several weeks ago, saying he came from the East, on his way to Kan zas; and has been' enjoying the. General's hospitalities, until last night. " Said Spencer 13 about, eighteen years f age, small, slender stature (weighing about one hundred 'pounds), of delicate appear ance, light hair, an effeminate voice, and del icate appearance generally. He says that his father lives in Pennsylvania, and his manners and conversation prove . him to be a Yankee, raised in some of-the Eastern cities. He appears to hare been decently raised, and wears a suit of black (I believe cloth) and a cap. . ; : One of the slaves is a man Tinmed HemrJ, of ordinary sizej dark complexion, and very smart ; the other two are young bright mu latto women. It is thought tliat they have gone toward Kanzas Territory, or made for Iowa. Gen. Smith s now absent at a meet ing of the directors of the Pacific Rsilroad at St. Louis. Several friends have gone in pursuit of the fugitives, "and it is to ; be hoped the young Yankee knave will he soon overtaken".

To Chasa and Capture of an -Amari- cau Slaver. . The London Illustrated Seat of Septem ber 19th contains the "following ,account of the capture of schooner, Abbott rJetereux an American vessel which for several years' traded between Savannah' and Cuba : ' v ; r U, m: S. Teaser. Lagos; : T West Coast of Africa, Aug; 6, 1857.f Having sseen in one of voiir recent num- hers an engraving, and likewise a short ac- count of the capture Sf a slaveri I thought, perhaps, this might be equally acceptable. Early on Sunday morning hwt, being off Whytah, and about sixty miles' at sea, the masthea 1 man reported" a strange sail; sail was immediately-made on "our ship, but to no purpose," she made three feet to our two. Steam was now got up, and the chase began in earnest After itbbdt two hours' hard chase we had rieared her very consid: erably'; Casks, boats, hampers, in fact eve ry thin they could throw overboard to light en their vessel thej did. We now fired onr Long .Tom in order to bring her to, but to no purpos?.- The chase now, you may sup pose,4 was very exciting; shot after shot was fired, but she kept bravely on, although our shot (32-pounders) nearly fell on her deck more than once. She tried every means to escape, and kept on to the very last, hoping no doubt," that our machinery might give out. She hove to about 'four o'clock. A loud hurrah proclaimed the event. I took a small sketch (which I have enclos- j ed; it is a truthful one) immediately after thexapture. ' She proved to be the Abbott Devereux, a vessel of .120 tons, with 235 slaves, and a mixed crew, consisting, of Spaniards, Americans, Portuguese and Bra zilians, twenty-seven in all. As soon as we boarded her the hatches' were opened, and such a scene never was witnessed. The slaves had been battened down all day du ring our nine hours' chase, they were all sea sick, and the. stench and filth are inde scribable; perhaps you can imagine 235 hu man beings shut up in a place 80 feet by 0 feet, and only 3 feet 6 inches high, just room enough to clear the top of their heads t wnen xney- are in a sming position. uu. ring the chase we ran a distance of eighty five mile?. - . Impcrtant from Utah. Capt. Van Vleit, Assistant- Quarter Mas ter Us.S. Army, arrived in this city last evening, direct from the Territory of Utah, having left Great Salt Lake City on the 14th ult. We understand that the Mormons are de termined not to allow the h niied States troops to enter Salt Lake valley, and will use force to prevent them, if necessary. They look upon the present movement of the Govern ment as only the renewal of the persecutions which they complain of having endured in this State and Illinois, and are determined to resist it at the outset. Capt. Van Vleit met the troops the 22d of September on the Sweet Water, some two hundred and thirty miles beyond Fort Laramie. They were all well, and in good spirits. Some of the sup ply trains were at Harris Fork, one hundred and forty-three miles this side of the valley, while others were far behind, and it is very doubtful if they can enter the Salt Lake val ley this season. Col. Johnson, with his escort, was met on the 1st of October, ninety miles this side of Fort Laramie, and determined to enter the valley of Salt Lake this fall. Gov. Cum ming and Secretary Hartnett were met on the 8th of this month niuety miles beyond Furt Kearney, all well. A heavy snow fell at Fort Bridger on the 1 5th of September. We hear that Uapt. an v leit passed a week in Great Salt Lake City. He was treated with much consideration, aud invited to partake of the hospitalities of the leading nieu of the city. Uut on all occasions, and from every quarter, he heard only one ex pressiou, and that was, that they, never would permit United States troops, or the officers appointed by the United States Gov ernment, to sret a foothold iu their domin ions. ; In all their public declarations, and in their private conversations, this senti ment is boldly avowed : they will never sutler the troops to enter the city and ifj they do, it wdl be after the town has been committed to the flames, the territory around it laid Avaste, and all the inhabitants have fled to : the mountains. Their fanaticism knows no ' bounds ; they believe Brigham Young to ; be the appointed agent of the Lord, and whatever he commands them to do, they will perform, with alacrity. They say that they have provisions sufficient to last them for three cr four years, and that, persecuted as they have been and are by the Americans, they will resiet to the last ex tremity. These statements being true, as they un doubtedly are, the Government will Lave to make levies of new . men, and to dispatch heavy reinforcements to the army in Utah next spring. - IPrices Current.
