From Utah. --A letter from Great Salt Lake City, dated October 8, states that the "Saints" on the 6th of October opened their semi-annual Conference, which lasted two days, and was attended by the most prominent members of the Church. On the second day Elder Orson Hyde delivered a lengthy discourse, and gave his views on the present political condition of the United States. He predicted that the Union would be dissolved; that the South would be compelled to call in the aid of Great Britain, who, in her turn, would be compelled to call in aid from some other quarter, and concluded by prophesying a great and terrible day of wrath for this country for their injustice to the Mormons.--The Conference was the largest ever held in the city, some thirteen thousand persons having attended it. Judge Kinney, and Mr. Rogers, the Indian agent, had arrived at Salt Lake City.
The Prince in Richmond.a British view — our Vulgarity — brutal Crowds, &c. The London Times' correspondent, who visited this city with the Prince of Wales, and received a variety of friendly attentions from members of the press and others, has written the following cheerful views of our city: Richmond, Virginia, Oct. 8. --The Prince has paid a flying visit of some forty hours to this legislative capital of the Old Dominion as it is called, for Virginia was the first English colony in North America. Here the first slaves were imported in 1620, and at this hour Virginia remains one of the most uncompromising supporters of pro-slavery in all the Union. The Royal party left the White House on the morning of the 6th. The leave-taking between the Prince and the President and his niece, Miss Harriet Lane, was marked by the most warm expressions of regret on both sides that the visit had been of so short duration.--The carriage of the Prince, followed by those of the chief member
Conviction of a murderer. --Mortimer S. Videtto was tried before the Superior Court at Litchfield, Ct., on Tuesday, for the murder of his two daughters in Bridgewater, on the 8th of October. The defence urged a plea of insanity, and proved for the prisoner by those who knew him, a character for sobriety, industry, peaceable conduct, and affectionate disposition toward his family. The jury returned a verdict of murder in the second degree, and Videtto was sentenced to State Prison for life.

nd grog in pails. We got to Cambridge the day before the battle. Oh, it was a terrible affair to me, for it was the first time I ever engaged in fighting. I served with the army through three campaigns, and was present and on guard when Burgoyne surrendered. I don't think I deserve any special praise for the part I took in the Revolution. I felt and acted only as others. I receive every year my pension of $6166 though I have to pay $4 to a lawyer in Portland to get it for me. I have many things to comfort me as I journey along through life — innumerable are the mercies I am surrounded with. As to temporal matters — kind loving children, faithful friends. As to spiritual the Holy Scriptures and the various institutions of religion — all of which are designed for our improvement here, and to prepare us to dwell in that better world above. If a kind Providence spares my life and health, you may expect to see me in Boston about the 8th of October Ralph Farnham. Your frie
From Lynchburg.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Lynchburg. Va., Oct. 8th. Notwithstanding King Abraham's blockade, our merchants and manufacturers still manage to keep a considerable stock on hand. The progress in manufactures is developed to a greater extort in the clothing line than in any other branch of business, probably owing to the very necessity of the case, as our army must be clothed, and the uniforms are not to be had until they are made! It is gratifying, however, to state in this connection that, owing to the exertions of their officers, several of the companies from this city have been provided with winter clothing, though a number are still to be provided for. The greatest difficulty exists in procuring the material, which, when it is to be had, can only be purchased at the most exorbitant prices. Yesterday was the first day of the fall term of the Quarterly Court in this city. The Court met at the usual hour, and after the election of two Ald
The Prize schooner off Stone bar. Augusta. October 8. --The Charleston papers of this morning, report that the schooner reported on Monday as a prize of the Federals, was taken when at anchor off Stono Bar. The battery on the bar fired at the Federal steamer, but she was too distant for the shots to reach her. The Federals sent four of their boats with armed crews, and took the schooner.
[from the New York Times, Oct. 8.] Jefferson City, Tuesday, Oct. 1, 1861. Notwithstanding the very small attention with which Western operations are regarded, (unless a defeat occur,) this place is just now one possessing military elements of the greatest interest. Not only is it a point at which Gen. Fremont is to demonstrate to an anxious public his fitness or unfitness for the tremendous responsibilities he has assumed, but it is also one at which are being created events and circumstances which ere long will decide the long- disputed question as to the fate of Missouri. Here are concentrating all the talent, the material, the energies, of the Department of the West--here are the actors rehearsing their parts preparatory to another drama, such as was shown at Springfield, Carthage, Booneville, Lexington. One Thursday of some months ago, Jackson issued his treasonable proclamation from this very place. Friday Gen. Lyon drove him a fugitive from his Capital, and the
Latest from Europe. American affairs — the Cotton question. Farther Point, Oct. 8. --The steamer Norwegian has arrived. She left Liverpool on the 26th, and brings telegraphic dates from Liverpool, via Londonderry, to the 27th of September. The Paris Patric denies, but English journals reassert, that France and Spain intend to interfere in the affair of Mexico. The London Times says the intervention is with the full concurrence of the American Government. The issue of notices for the adoption on short time in working hours in the Lancaster Mills is becoming more general. Under these circumstances, spinners and manufacturers are showing an increased confidence, and abstain from pressing, their goods on the market until prices rise in proportion to the value of the raw material. The city article in the London Times attributes the continued decline in the funds to the feeling and disquiet of the prospects of the operatives in Manchester the coming winter
The Cotton trade in New York. New York, Oct. 8. --The cotton trade was more active and firmer. The sales were ,800 bales. mid ling uplands 21 to 21¾ cents.
Further by the Norwegian. Sir E. Bulwer Lytten's opinion on American affairs — Russell favors the Northern idea — the Mexican Intervention question. Farther Point, Oct. 8. --In consequence to recent events in Japan, the English war vessels on the China station had been ordered a Jeddo. The steamer Great Eastern was less seriously damaged than at first represented. She will repair and resume her trips to New York. Edward Bulwer Lytton said at a dinner in Herefordshire that he had long foreseen the rupture in America, but he thought it would lead to happy results, both for the safety of Europe and the civilization of America.--The breaking up of the American Republic was not a failure of Democracy. Any other form of government would have equally failed in keeping together the sections of a community so geographically vast and will interests so antagonistic to each other. Mr. Russell, in his last letter to the London Times, says he has no doubt
