TROUBLES AMONG THE MORMONS. The Salt Lake Fidette of June 15 gives the follow- ing information On Sunday afternoon Brigham Young preached a lengthy sermon, boldly and openly announcing that Amara Lyman, Orson Hyde, and Orson Pratt had apostatized, and were cut off from ihe Church. Orson Hyde had been chosen President of the Twelve Apostles last, April. Pratt is one of the twelve, and Lyman had been one of the apostles also. Young was severe 011 H/de, but particularly so on Pratt. He denounced the latter as an unbeliever, and a3 now in possession of the devil. A correspondent of the New York Tribune, writing from Salt Lake City on June 18, says There are palpable signs of dissolution in the Mormon Church. The .rosephites (the followers of Smith) pronounce polya-amy a sin, and they claim to be the true Mormon Church and entitled to the Church property. When Brighatn was south this spring he had to cut off several huudred mem- bers for heresy because they adhered to Smith, aud over 100 waggons of emigrants are now in the mountains on their way east to escape his fearful vengeance. The Morrisites are another class of dissenters, and have no fellowship with the Salt Lake Church. They denounce polygamy, and are constantly receiving acquisitions to their number:). They have a strong settlement in Utah, at Soda Springs, under the very shadow of the Prophet. Every sermon I heard from the Mormons betrayed nervous fears as to (livisioI-i- some appealed, some unfolded the duty of submission, and Brigham thundered his fierce anathemas against the faithless. Gentile dealings and associations are forbidden, because Mormonism cannot bear contact with virtue and truth, nor can its crowning crime of polygamy bear contact even with vice. Virtue and vice are alike its foes, and equally fatal to its perpetuity. Thus is the Mormonism of Young beset by schisms, perilled by growing intercourse with Gentiles, and soon the Pacific railroad will pour thousands of population into all the fruitful valleys of the West, 31111 in but a few years the distinctiveness of this people must fade away. .u=:cr
