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.
Immense Counterfeiting Operation --Arrest of the Parties.--James McLean, Cashier of the Boone County Bank of Lebanon, Ind., J. B. Hussey, Albert H. Hager. Miles A. Bidley, and J. P. Chipman, connected with the same institution, were arrested at Indianapolis, Ind., on the 2d inst., charged with forgery and circulating the money fraudulently issued, and were committed to jail in default of $5,000 bail each. It is supposed that these parties have circulated from $300,000 to $500,000 in counterfeit bills of the Boone County Bank, in Indiana, Iowa, Illinois and Missouri. Forty-five thousand dollars in genuine notes were issued by the Auditor of the State. The spurious and genuine notes are from the same plate, while the Auditor's and Register's names are counterfeited on the former. A. Spooner, President of the Bank, made his escape from Indianapolis, Saturday. About $100,000 of this counterfeit have been received by the bankers there from correspondents in the West. Several hund
Our Foreign relations. --Dispatches from Mr. Clay, our Minister to Peru, inform the Secretary of State that the government of Peru had rejected the ultimatum of the United States for the settlement of the claims against that country, and that he had demanded his passports and would leave at once for the United States. On the 10th, the day the steamer left for Panama, the demand had not been complied with. Advices from the flag officer of the Pacific squadron gives all the facts in relation to the arrest of two naval officers at Panama, from which it appears that the officers were to blame in refusing to answer the challenge of the sentries on duty. Dispatches from our minister to China state that all claims of the United States against China, extending from 1840 to 1857, have been fully discharged under Mr. Reid's commercial convention of 1858. The Governor General speaks in the highest terms of the Americans, and of his desire to continue friendly relations with this country
Among the passengers who arrived at New York Monday, were Rev. Bishop Kip, of California, and Col. Pickens, U. S. Minister to Russia. Brevet Major General W. S. Harney left Washington Monday to take command of the department of the West, headquarters at St. Louis. Joseph Hernandez, who tried to kill Fanny May and himself on Tuesday, is now in a fair way to recover. The St. Louis (Mo.) Democrat states that a total of 80,000 buffalo robes have been received in that city during the present year. Rev. Z. G. Henderson died at Pensacola, Fla., on the 19th ult. The Winans, of Baltimore, are about building another "cigar" steamer. Thanksgiving in Wisconsin, November 29th. This is the twelfth State.
Further Foreign News. By the Prince Albert, from Galway on the 23d ult., we have the following items of foreign news: The Emperor of Russia, the Emperor of Austria and the Prince Regent of Prussia were all at Warsaw together, with Prince Gortschakoff, Count Rothberg and other prominent Ministers. Nothing had transpired as to the conferences. It is asserted that Russia has positively refused to enter into engagements with Austria which might lead to war. The Constitutionnel announces that the Emperor received an autograph letter from the Czar of Russia explaining the nature of the Warsaw meeting, depriving it of any significance hostile to France. The Bourse was flat and drooping, at 66f. 75c for the rentes. Naples dispatches of the 21st of October announce that the vote on annexation was then being taken; much enthusiasm existed and immense crowds had assembled at the voting places. All was quiet at the latest dates. The King of Naples had issu
California and Oregon Polities. St. Josephs, Mo, Nov. 6 --The Pony Express, from San Francisco on the 24th ult., has arrived. The result of the election in Pennsylvania had been received, and the Republicans were betting that they would carry California. The Oregon Legislature had before it resolutions to adjourn on the 10th and hold a special session in the spring. The two Houses disagree about the bill rendering null the recent Congressional election, and it is doubtful whether the resolutions will pass.
Execution of a Matricide. --Ezra Brainerd was hung at Three Rivers, C. W., on the 25th ult., for having murdered his mother some months since. Since his conviction strong efforts have been made to have him pardoned on the ground of insanity, and the wretched doggerel which he has had published in a paper at Three Rivers would seem to indicate that be was far from being in his right mind. A correspondent of the Montreal Gazette sketches the closing scene of his life. He writes: Shortly before 11 o'clock, a door leading to the convict's cell was closed, and the hangman proceeded to pinion his victim in the dimly-lighted dungeon, screened by the closed door from the looks of the people in the jail hall. The constables who accompanied him state that while being pinioned Brainerd requested Sheriff Ogden to convey his body, after execution, to Melbourne, in the Townships, for burial, and that the twenty dollars in gold among his effects be appropriated for the purpose.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Politics — Religious Conference — Crops, &c. Isle of Wight Co., Va., Nov. 3d, 1860. Notwithstanding the extreme inclemency of the weather, there was a large attendance of the sovereigns at the great Breckinridge mass meeting at the Court-House, on the 30th ult. Unfortunately, however, the distinguished speakers who had been announced were deterred by adverse providence from being present--ex-Gov. Wise by an accident on the railroad, and Mr. Leake, we learn, by illness in his family. The only address on the occasion was by Dr. Rives, of Surry. The Eastern Virginia "Christian" Conference is now in session in the adjoining county of Nansemond. This Conference is composed of churches embraced in the limits of this Congressional district, and represents about 2,500 communicants. Though but little known in many sections, this denomination is one of the most numerous in this and adjoining counties, and has increased rapidly within a f
