JNEW YOiik KEUALl). 1>w vork, Sunday, April 3, 1S414, '1'hr Jloriiiom- ILtaffrum Joe Smith. We give ia this day's paper, a very curious chapter from the "Hi o'c of Abraham," which we find published in the Inst number of a weekly journal, ailed the "Tunes and Seasons," conducted by JoSmith the great Mormon Prophet, in the city Nauvoo, Hancock county, Illinois. The Prophet says that it was found :n thecaticombs of Egypt, but he is mistaken in this idea.? Tne article was discovered, we presume by Joseph Smith, the grandfaiher, near one of the propylons of Medtnet Abu,'in the "City of the Sun, in L pper Egypt. The same city which Homer says had one hundred gates. Champollion, ^oung, llosseltni, and various other aot:<|'iariuas give notices of the magnificent ruins, in red granite, that are strewn ovsr the banks of the Nile. Be all this as it may, the Prophet of Nauvoo has given the chapter, and it is set down as a revelation among the Mormons. This Joe Smith is undoubtedly.oue of the greatest charactersol the age. lie indicates as much talent, originality, and moral courage as Mahomet, OJin, or any of the grea: spirits that have hitherto produced the revolutions of past ages. In the present infidel, irreligious, material, ideal, geological, animalmagnetic age of the world, some such singular pro phet as Joe b.mth is required to preserve the prin ciple of faith, aud to plant some new germs of civi1 zation that may come to maturity in a thousand years. While modern philosophy, which believes in nothing but what you cun touch, is overspreading the Atlantic States, Joe Smith is creating a spiritual system, combined also with morals and industry, that may change the destiny of the race.? Joe believes himsell divinely inspired and a worker of miracles. He cures the sick of disaases?so it is said:?and although Joe is not aware of the fact, w e have been informed by a medical man that his influence over nervous disorders, arises from a powerful magnetic influence?that Joe is a magnet in a large way, which he calls a power or spirit from heaven. Jn other respects Joe is a mighty man of God?possessing large stores of human naturegreat shrewdness, and as he has taken the management of the Mormon newspaper organ, the "Times and Seasons" into his hand, we look for many revelations, and some curious ones too, pretty soon. We certainly want some auch prophet to start up, take a big hold of the public mind?and stop the torrent of materialism that is hurrying the world into infiedility, immorality, licentiousness, and crime. Professor Lyell, Richard Adams Locke, Dr. Bris Dane, roaster fenmersoo, i'ropnel lirownson, Horace Greely, and all ihe materialists of the age, ought to take a leaf of common sense out of Joe's book. The steam'inr or War Mishocri.?The Taxisg Her to Sea ?y a New Yore Pilot.?On Frirlay last,one of our expert NewYork pilo's, Gregory Thorr.as, of the pilot boat Washington, took the steamship Missouri safely to sea in fine style ? When off the point of the Hook, Captain Newton asked the pilot to point out some place where he could obtain some sand to scrub the decks with. The pilot pointed out a spot; on which the captain had the engines stepped, and sent a boat on shore, to get a boat load of sand. In the meantime the ship remained of! the point of the Hook, and made a circle of a mile, ctine back to the same point, picked up her boat, and went otl on her trip triumphantly. And yet, out of ibis circumstance the Journal of Commerce, and other Wall street pspers, manufactured a most infamous falsehood?stating that the pilot ran the Missouri ashore on the point of the Hook, and that she remained there one hour- This scandalous story is characteristic of the impudence and ignorance with which the Wall street papers make assertions against the New York pilots and those who support them ; and is characteristic of the whole of the impudent, reckless ignorance, and unblushing conduct of the Wall street prees. We advise the pilot, Mr. Gregory, to commence an ac tion against the Wall street papers; for if this is not a case for exemplary damages, then we don't know what is. And now is the time for Congress to attend to this subject; this is a specimen of the way in which the I whole of the slanders agaiast the New York pilots have been get up; and the above is also a sample of what foundation there has been for the whole of them- Congress must do them justice. More Libels.?In the " Commercial'' oflast evening, there is a long, bitter, malevolent article, written by Col. Stone, in u hich he utter* probably a dozen libels against courts, juries, individuals, and every thing. These indictments seem to annoy the Colonel very much?and he i9 evidently afraid of the result. Well?he must lay in thtbed he has made for himself. But it is amusing to hear Stone talk of 41 persecution," and blubber like a school boy?to hear such a man do so, who tor years has been one of a clique that carried persecution against us, merely because wa wera successful in business, to the uttermost end of a bitter and malignant heurt. Will not somebody send Stone a bottle of wine and a b< x of seg.irs, to cheer up his spirits 1 Will bis neighbor, the Prince of Coney Idand, think of this suggestion 1 Spr.ii, the War Steamers.? It has now been ascertained that the Missouri, built in this city, with American inclined engines, is superior in speed to the Mississippi. The two Bteamers started on piiday morning last, the Mississippi about one mile ahead, but by the time they reached Sandy Hook, the Missouri had passed her companion and carrying less steam?the Mississippi thirte*n and the Missouri eleven i^iies So the Missouri is the fastest steam ship.

They commenced running in December, and since then the life has been lost?the Clyde driven ashore ?the Tweed forced into port wiih loss of fuel?and now we have to chronicle a disaster to the Med way. We learn by the Pedraza, arrived last night, that she run ashore, about eighteen days ago, on a small island two miles to the windward of Porto Cabello.J and had not been got off when the Pedraza left that port. _ Chatham Theatre.?Thorne soars on from enterprise to enterprise, regardless of expenses, aiming only at amusing that public which so generously supports him- He has now effected an engagement with Jim Crow Rice, who appears on Monday night in two pieces.

His second veto was sent in to the Senate yesterday afternoon, with the Criminal Court repeal bill. It was not wholly unexpected, however, and therefore did net excite much surprise. Judges Noah and Lynch are, therefore, safe far another year, at any rate. We shall have another document of a similar character from him, in a da] or tws, in ,the matter of the bill pro* vidingfor the Pub)iC|Printiug. Mr. O'Si'llivan's bill for.the abolition of Capit 1 Punishment,'was rejectsd in the House yesterday. Mr. O'S. moved a reconsideration tf the vote, but Mr. Hoffinan moved that the question of reconsideration lie on the table, which was agreed to. Although Mr. O'Sullivan's long speeches on the subject had completely wearied the patisnee of the house, and prubablyjtended as much as any | thing else to defeat the .measure, I cannot but think that tha" Admiral" departed from his nsual courtesy, in his treatment of Mr- O'S. on this occasion. He might, at least, have allowed the question on reconsidering to be taken. The State Prison bill, had its third reading, and after some debate was passed. It^ will most undoubtedly receive the .sanction of the Senate and become a law. In the'Assembly to-day, a large number of reports from standing and select.eeniraiitecs were re eeived. Mr- Lott called up the question on agreeing with the report of the Select committee in relation to the support of foreign poor in the county of Kings. Mr. Tow.nsexd had no objection to the Lill re* ported by the committee, if it provided that foreign iiaupers who lauded in any port in the county of tings, and came upon the city of New York for support, &.C. He thought the 'principle shot-Id be inade universal. Mr. Lott remarked, after alluding to the former laws on the subject of foreign poor, that in the poor house of lh- county of Kings,there were 7<KJ foreign paupers, of which number 1( 8 had been commuted for, and the monty paid to tbu city of New York. This money was levied for the suppoit of foreign poor, and all the county of Kings asked was the right to notify the city of New \ork of this fact, and to icquire them to support these paupers, who were thus commuted lor and bonded for. He hoped, therefore, the report of the committee would be agreid to. Mr- D. R Jones thought if this bill pa??ed, that a provision should be added providing fer the levying ol more taxes. The tax bill had already been passed, and there was no funds in the treasury ef the city to, meet the additional expense that would fall upon the city by th- passage of (his bill. Mr J. offered an amendment to that effect. Mr. ?coTr repiieu.and the question was taken first on the questiua of recommitting the bill with instructions so to amend, and lost; then on amending the repo.t, lost also. The house then agreed with the report of thee mmittce. The House then took up the bill for the improvement of the Militia System. Mr. Ohiffi.v took the floor in favor of the bill In explanation of the bill, he remarked that it propos-'d to reduce the term of service requirtd of uniform companies from fifteen to twelve years Congress has passed laws for arming the militia, and h is appropriated money for that object. The arms were to be distributed amonf the militia, and not shut up in the arsenate Tbif ? what this law proposed to carry intocflect. This bill requires a inau to do two days service in each year, and ihen exempts him from one day's highway labor,leaving onlv one day lost in military duty. Mr. G alluded to the Albany Hurgesses Corps, as an example to what perfection the volunteer corps had arrived in their drill, and argued from that the advantage to be derived from encouraging and festering the nulitia Mr. Dxvesvc advocated the bill. Ho ctmplimi nted and eulogized the services and value of the militia lie was in favor of encouraging the formation if volunteer corps.

The debate was coutmued at length, when the.question was taken, on the final passage of the hill, and it passed Daring the debate, the house was convulsed With laughter by an incidental occurrence, at Mr. 11 would say. Mr. (.'uracil, of Orleans, was, in the course of his remarks, somewhat severe in his allntions to the rutll? shirt gentry, and federalism.

Upen discovering it, they were speedily replaced, and the gentleman overwhelmed with confution. Mr Simmoiv* alluded to the circumttanee, and the Houte were completely overcome with the ludicroutneis of the incident, and throwing dignity n*ide for the nonce, abandoned thrmaelve* to the cachiaarory motion, from which they did not recover until repeatedly called to order by the^pesk er.

In the land of the Chaldeans, at the residence t' 'I my father, I, Abraham, saw that it was needful for if me to obtain another place ol residence, and finding thete was greater happiness and peace and rest fot me, I sought for the blessings of the fathers and thr right whereunto 1 should be ordain-d to admini.-ter it the same; having been myself a follower of ri^hi- c eousnese, desiring eNo to < who posse Mod w great knowledge, and to b greater follower ol w righteousness, and to posse greater knowledge, h ana it> oe a lutner ol main nations, a prince 01 i u peace ; and desiring to receive in-tructions, uid ' keepihe commandments of God, 1 became a right ful heir, a high priest, holding the right belonging ' the fathers, it was conferred upon me from the 1 theis; it came down from the fathers, from the be ginning of time, yea, even from the beginning, 01 u before the foundations of the earth, to the present m time, even the right of the first born, on the fi st w man, who is Adam, or first father, through the fa- ai there, unto me. II 2. 1 sought for mine appointment unto the Priesthood according to the appointment of God unto the pi fathers, concerning the seed. My fathers having in turned from their righteousness, and from the holv tl, commandments which the Lord their God had H given upon them unto the worshipping of the Gods ni of ihe heathen, utterly refused to hearken to my s? vo ce ; for their hearts were set to Jo evil, and were th wholly turned to the God of Klkenah, and the God G of Libnah.and the God cf Mahmackrah, Hnd the I God of lvorash, and the God of Pharaoh, King of vc KgypJ ; therefore they turned their hearts to the ri sacrifice of the heathen in ottering up their children h< unto their dumb idols, and hearkened not unto my sti voics but endeavored to take away my life by the th hand of ihe priest of Llkenah ; the priest of Like- ah nah was also the pr.eat of Pharaoh. ni 3 Now, at this time it was tie custom oi the m priest of Pharaoh, the Kiug of Egypt to offer up upon the altar which wai built in the land ot Glial- l': dea, for the i ff ring unto these strange Gods, both men, women and children. And it come to pa>s Jj1 that the priest made an offering unto the Godot Pharaoh, and also unto the God of Shagreel, even ? alter the m inner of the Egyptians Now the God 'r of Shagreel was the Sun Even the thank offering '? of a child did the priest of Pharaoh offer upon the hi altar, which stood hy the hill called Potiphar's f? H ll, at the head of the plain of Ohshem. Now, ct this priest had offered upon this altar three virgins at to one time, who were the daughters of OnitaTi, oue "I of the lioyal descent, directly from the twins of th Ham- These virgins were offered up because of of their virtue ; they would not bow down to worship Gods of wood or ot stone, therefore they were srJ killed upon this altar, and it was di#e af er the man- 1 ner of the Egyp'ians. to 4. And it come to pass that the priests laid vio- ar lence upon me, th*t ihcy might slay me, also, as 1' they did those virgins,upon this afar; and that you 'el might have a knowledge of this altar, 1 will refer you to the representation at the commencement of E' ibis record. It was made after the form of a bedstead, suc h as was had among the Chaldeans, and it ^ stood before the gods of Eikenah, Libnah, Mali- CI mackrah, Korash.and also a God like unto that of 8'J Pharaoh King of Egypt. That you may have an *' understanding of these Gods, I have given you the lw fashion of them in the figures, at the beginning, ca which manner of the figures is called by the Chal- ve deans Kahteenos, w hich signifies Hyeroglyphics. 5. And as iliey lifted up their hands upon me, '' that they tn'ght offer me up and tHke away my life, behold I lifted up my voice unto the Lord my God ; and the Lord hearkened and heatd, and he filled l,r ine with a vision of the Almighty, and ihe angel of m his presence stood by me, and immediately unloosed my, bands, and his voice was unto ine, Abram! ua Abram! behold, my name is Jehovah, and 1 have P'1 heard thee, nnd have come down to deliver thee, be and to take thee away from thy father's house, and su from all thy kin-folks, into a stiange land, which . thou knowest not of, and this because they haie 1,1 turned their hearts away from nte, to worship iiir God of E kenah, ?ltd the God of Lihnah^ jan(j ,pe God of Mahmackruh, ftmi the God ofshorasli, and the Gud of Pharaoh King of Egypt; therefore I have come down to visit tlient, and to destroy liiin who hath lifted up his hand against thee, Abram, ?, tny son, to lake away thy life. Behold 1 will lead thee by my hand, and I will take tliee, to put upon tliee my name, even the priesthood o| thy father; J* and my power shall he over tliee ; as it was with j Noah so shall it he with thee;that through thy mir.- Jc istry my name shall be known in the earth forever, *n for I am thv G,,d. PJ (>. Behold, Potipher'a Hill was in the land of Ur, 5 of Clialden ; and the Lord broke down the altar of I * ' Llkenah, and of the Gods of the land, and utt< rly I eestroyrd them,and smote the priest that he died; j SJ! and there wes great mourning in Chaldea, and a'so .. in the court of Pharaoh, which Ph-raoh lignifies King by royal blood. Now thin King of Egypt was ?! a descendant from the loins of Ham, and was a par taker of the blood of the Canaaniteg, by birth.? From this descent sprang all the Egyptians, nnd thus the blood ot theCanuanites was preserved in I the land. 7.
