The lights and quarrel* in the Mormon eouitir) promise to be much richer than any thing that ha.* occurred here since the days ol the Revolutionary war. We give to-day extracts front the letters ol Gen. Bennett, relative to hi- charges against Joe Smith To-morrow, we may probably give the additional charges of Joe Smith against Gen Bennett. The latter has reached St. Louts, and has charged Joe with instigating the man who attempted to kill Gov. Bogga. The ?iovernor ol Missouri has made a requisition ..it the tiovernor ol Illinois lor the surrender ol Joe Smith, and a very elegant quarrel is likely to grow out ol the atiair. I ll-' whole thllll? IS tllll Ol nli'ilrwm.liv In religion, truth, falsehood, fanaticism and philosophy. Head the following extracts, put your trust in the Lord, and learn how to restrain your passions:? ith. Mr*. Sarah M. Trait, wife oi Professor Orson Pratt, of the University ol the city 01 Nauvoo,?Joe Smith stated to me at an early da; n the history of that city , tiiat he intended to muke that amiable and accomplish* I lady one ol his spiritual w iv cs, lor the Lord had given her to him and he requested me to assist him in consummating his hellish pui poses, hut 1 told him that I would not do it? that she h of been much neglected and abused by the church during the absence ol her husband in Europe, and that it the Lord had given her to him he mint attend 10 it himself, i will do it. naid he, for there i* uo harm in it, it her husband should never f ul it out. 1 called upon Mrs. Pratt, and told her that Joe contemplated an attack on her virtue, in the name of the Lord, and that she must prepare to repulse him in so inlamous an assault. She replied, " Joseph cannot be *tich a man ; I cannot believe it until I know it tor myself, or hpveit i.-om his own lips; he c in not be so corrupt." Well, I replied, you will see, unless he changes his iniud. Accordingly, in a few days, Joe pro)>oied to me 10 go to Ramus with nun. 1 consented 0 go, and we started from his house libout 4 o'clock. 1'. M., rode into the prairje a few miles, and leturned to the house of Captain John T. Baruelt, in Nauvoo, about dusk, where we put up tne horse with Harnett'? permission. He. Joe. pretended we were looking for thieve*. We then proi ved.'d to the house where Mrs. Piatt resided, and Joe commenced discouise as follows Sitter Pra t, the Lord nan given you to me as one ol mv spiritual wives. 1 have the blessings of Jacob granted me, a* he granted holy men ol old, and I have long looked upon y ou with favor, and hope you will not deny." She replied, " 1 care not for the blessings of Jacob, and I believe in no such revelations,neither will! consent under any circumstances. 1 have one good husband, and that is enough for no ." Joe could not come it', he tuen went otf to see Miss ?.' ttln house of Mrs. Sherman. He remained with her on i two and then returned ti Barnetts's, harnessed < a. ..dlur Ramus, and arrived at Carthage at vV'eth o went to Ramus, and returned to gt? . an 1 put up at the house of F.?q. Co.1 returned to Nauvoo. I called upoi In r v hat she thought ol Joseph ) .1 a bad toiiti beyond a doubt." Mrs. sn ii will Mrs. God lard, wife of Ste. -an, " Sister Go. Id aid, Joseph is a corrup ., n , I know it, for he made an attempt upon me." 1 hiee times afterwards he tried to convince Mrs. I'ratt ol the propriety of his doctrine, and she at last told him :? " Joseph, if "you ever attempt any thing of the kind with tne again, I will tell Mr. Pratt on his return home. I w ill certainly do it." Joe replied, " Sister Pratt, 1 hope you will not rxnose rue it 1 am to sutler nil tiirti-r . ... expose me. Will you agree uot to do so1" " If," said she. " you will never insult me again I will not expose you, unless string circumstances require it.'" "Well, sister 1 rati," says Joe, " as you have refused me, it bi comes sin, uoi-ss sacriffce is otfemland turning to me, he suiJ.

Joe replied,' I i did not deeire to kise her; tinaitl mi aae do it 1" Jo., , you can't come it ! .Mrs. I'ratt is far uIkjvc your foul and polluted breath, your calumny and detraction. 1 now ap peal to Mrs. Pratt if this is not true to the very letter. | Just speak out boldlv. ftth Miss Nancy kigdon, daughter ol Sidney Kigdon. 1 Esq.?Joe Smith said to me last summer, " If you assist me in procuring Nancv as one of my spiritual wises, I will give you five hundre i dollars, or the best lot on Main street." i replied, " I cannot agree to it. Elder Rigdon is one of my best friends, and his family ure now pure and spotless, and it would be a great pity to approach the truly virtuous.'- " But," says Joe, " the Lord has given her to me to wife. 1 have the blessings of Jacob, ami there is no wickedness in it. It would be wicked to approach het unless I had permission of the Lord, but as it is, it is as correct as to have n legal wife in a moral point of view." It may l?; so, said I, hut you must see her yourself. I cannot approach her on a subject of that kind. Then I suppose I the matter had ende ; but at the funeral ol Mr. Kphraim K Marks, .Mrs. Hyde told Miss Kigdon. that Joeph desired to see her at the printing office, where Mrs. Hyde resides, on special business. She said she would go, and accordingly did, but Joe was busily engaged at his store : Dr. iVillard Richards, however, one of the holy twelve Mormon apostles, whom I had long suspected as being up to his eyes in the business with Joe, came in and ! sai 1, ' Miss Nancy, Joseph cannot he in to-day, please call again on Thursday " This she agreed to do ; but she communicated the matter to Colonel Krancis M. Higher. < who was addressing her, and asked his advice as to the ( ?. con I visit. I then came to a knowledge of the facts, and w ent immediately to Joe, and said to him, " Joseph, you 1 are a Master Mason, and Nancy is a Master Mason's datigli ( ter, so stay your hand, or you w ill get into trouble." Joe replied," you are my enemy, and wish to oppose me." ' No," said I, " I am not your enemy, hut you had better stop where you are." I then went to Col Hislu's n,i,l isl.t Uim J?1 ami requested him logo immediately and see Miss Rigdon. and tell her the infernal plot?that Joe would approach hei in the name ol the Lord, by revelation, Ike., and to put her on her guard, but advise her to go and see for hersell what Joe would do. He did no, ami she went dots n. Joe was there, and took her into a private room, locked the door, and commenced by telling her that he had long loved her, and had hiked the Lord lor her, and that it was his holy will that h< should have her?he told her that it would not prevent lier from marrying am other person?that he hail the blessings of Jacob'granted to him?and that all was right , he desired to kiss her, and wished her to kiss him, but Joe could u't come it. She sai I she w ould alarm thi neighbors if he did not open the door and lei her out?he did so, an 1 requested Mrs. Hyde to explain matters to her. Joe swore her to eternal secrecy. >1r*. Hyde told her 'hat these things looked strange to her at first, hilt she would b> come more reconciled on mature n flection Miss Rigdon replied, " I net er shall " Joe agreed to w rite her, an ' did so in a few days through Di.

Joe came up to Mr. Rigdon's, accompanir . by his fligh Priest, George .Miller, of sable sister notoriety for a w itness, and by boisterous words and violent gesture 1 tried to deny the attempted seduction and alaim the girl ' but she told'him he u as a cursed liar, and that he i out not face her to it. Joe then made a full acknow ledgmru ' of the whole affair. All the family, and many other tier , sans were present. The holy George observed, " Vol must not harm the Lord's anointed? the Lord will no' suffer his anointed to fall 1! Now call upon Miss Rig i ion lor the truth of the foregoing.

Ni uvoo Lodge, U. D. The original records show that Joseph Smith, Job Snyder.

That record w as seal (1 up, uiul u new one commenced,?the second wns sealed up, and a third commenced,?and then a new record liooh procured and such parts copied as they were willing should go to the Grand Lodge, and such only. Let the original book lie proJuccd und all these facts will appear?1 stand pledged that they shall appear. A part ol the original record is in my hand writing, as all know ; now if they will produce a record that has any ot my hand writing in it, (for the new one has nothing bm my name,) I win show all the facts, unless the leaves have been torn out. Mr. Stoddard was suspended for blackballing Mr. Sessions, but it was not put to record. The charges ol 11. G Sherwood and Samuel lb Smith, against Robert D. Foster, during the trial of which roster received such a severe rebuke by Joe, never appeared upon record, and Joe said, as the case w as likely to effect ins bro'her Samuel, " I will see the records in hell and burn this bouse, before it shall be said that a Smith ever failed to accomplish any thing he undertook, or before any thing hall he recorded thnt may ever operate against Samuel? and if we can't get a charter without that the Grand Lodge in.iv go to the devil." Is this not so ? I appeal to George W. Robinson, Francis M. Higher, and Hiram Kimball, all Master Masons. These are only some ol the actings ami loings of the Nnuvoo Lodge, l". D., under the Supervision of Joe, and his servile priest George Miller?that little creature mat does Joe's dirty work Let the Grand Lodge look to this. Why does not Nnuvoo Lodge, U. D. deal with Joe lor the attempted seduction of Nancy Rigdun. n Master Mason's daughter and for the actual seduction ol several Master Mason's wives, sisters and daughters I ? Simply because they say Joe is a Prophet, and the Lord's annotated must not be harmed, the Lord will not suiter his annotated to fall! O, tempora !

The celebrated tier man band of yeurcity, under the lead of Schneider, the prince of music, hns arrived, and we were " tripping the light fantastic toe" last evening to their inspiring strains, at the United States Hotel They are engaged exclusively, as I understand, tor this magnificent establishment, and play at dinner, tea, and every evening, either in the|asscinblv or drawing room?its effect, through its shady groves and spacious halls, cannot be njipreriatcd, without being heard. The distinction among the visitants, at the different hotels here, is more marked this season than ever. Congress Hall has given up its rivalry with the United States, and lias gone into competition with the smaller and more common houses. The result is, that it has more company than any house here, except the United States, and of the same class I lint unit i'r.niwrlv cuw .1 Innunf tin* Montgomery, American, and Adelphi hotels.? They consist principally of the substantial yeomanry, from the neighboring States, Vermont. Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and are, to all appearance, a family of real " beef eaters." They will put more |>ork and beans and Congress water inside their laekets, I'll warrant you, than they will either old port or champagne. It is amusing to see some of your city chips, who stop at second and third r.ite hotels, sit, and smoke, and walk about the garden of the I 'nited States, und to see how quick porters and waiters can detect them. 1 discovered a couple of these young men, smoking upon the lairtieo this morning, enjoying the halmy atmosphere ol its grounds and garden, with suen apparent complacency and self satisfaction, that 1 had the < uriosity to ask our sqnmt-eyed porter their names; he replied, " they were Mr. L n and H y, of New York, slept and cat at Congress Hall, anil picked their teeth upon the stoop of the 1'nited Stales hotel.

variout Routes?The Expenses, Sr<~. Mr. James (>. Hknneti ? Liear Sir? i propose to Pgive a few extracts from a journal and sonic account of a trip to the Virginia Spring last season. If deemed of sufficient interest to th< travelling public to meet an insertion, you are a liberty to do 90. i shall inflict only some half do /en papers on the indulgence of your readers. There are three routes to the Virginia springs each of them desirable, from the points of interestthe mountain scenery and landscape views present ed by them. The first and most expeditious is Iron Baltimore to Harper's Ferry?thence to Wincher ter by railroad. From this point accoiniiindatioi coaches are furnished, and you have an excellen turnpike l?y the way ol Strasburg, Woodstock ant Newmarket, to Harrisonburg, pissing down th< beautiful and highly cultivated "Valley of the She nandoah," and through the far-famed domain of tin celebrated beet speculator, Steinberger, extend ini I six miles on either side oi a stream by which it i watered. The valley iaperhape a mile or a mile an< a half wide, gently undulating, and near the cen i tre is an eminence and a beautiful grove, on whicl is erected the Mansion House. The property ha been recently sold, and is now owned|bv Sir J. ft I Meein, of Lynchburg, at a cost of $85,(NM). Fron Harrisonburg, leaving Staunton some fifteen mile to the left, you pass through the most highly eulti vated and beautiful portion of Augusta county crossing a branch of the Alleghany Mountain at o near Cloverdale, and reaching the Warm Springs Six miles farther are the Hot Springs?thence at easy day's ride, fortv-five miles, to the White Sul pliur. The railroad from Baltimore to Wincheste is an excellent one, and is built on the banks ol th< Patapsco, a branch ol which it follows to its source The road passes through a highly cultivated, unt amidst the mountains, a picturesque country. Llli coil's Mills and Harper's Ferry are the chief point of interest. Of this last, however, though much tc admire, those who have read "Mr. Jefferson' Notes on Virginia," will he disappointed. The second, or middle route, viz: Washington Fredericksburg, and by railroad to the junction o the Richmond and Charloltsviile road, the travelle stopping one night at the Junction Hotel, (by tin way, a common building, but excellent fair and at tention,) the next morning, at 6o'clock,by railroad to < Jordonsville?thence bv stapes twenfv.twi miles, to Charlottsvillo. passim; through Staunton,t< tlte Warm Springs. The hotels on the route are wel kept, and sufficient time is allowed lor sleep and re Ireshment. The stages are northern built, large an< comfortable, and not unlrequently six horses are at tached. The finest grain growing portion of th< State is traversed in this route, and the crossing o the Blue R idge and the Warm Soring Mountaii alone is well worth the trip, jn either route, how i ever, you cross the Warm Sprint Mountain. The third route is front Richmond by canal t< Lynchburg, thence stage, dining at the Nature Bridge, and stopping all night at Dibbrell'ssprings the next day dining at the junction of the northeri route?the celebrated Callaghan's?at all thes< places company is to be found, more especially it ! the month of August and September, when the ho i tels at the Springs are crowded. The accomntodu ! tion on this line is equal to any in the Union, ant the traveller will ever remember with pleasure th< polite attentions and sumptuous fare of Messrs. Pan Jones of the Franklin Hotel, Lynchburg, Dibbrell Callaghan, and Col. Frv of the Warm Springs. Th< comparative distance and expense as below:? Front Baltimore via Winchester to Warm Spring; 140 miles rail road, 145 stage?285 miles. Expensi 22 50. From Baltimore via Washington, Fredericks burg and Charlottsville, rail road and steamboat 192 rail road, 107 stage?299 miles. Expense $19. From Baltimore via Richmond and canal t< Lynchburg to Warm Springs, 317 rail road, 11! stage?429 miles. Expense, $29 50. The two first named routes can be accomplishei from this city in five days. The above are th< charges without meals and incidental ex|>enses. Roanoke. Portsmouth. [Correi|K>utlriice of the Herald.] Portsmouth, N. H., July 15th, 1842.

Mr. Edwin Skinner, whose restience is at Oswego, in this state, was arrested yesterday 1 e ind held to l>ail in the sum of $-L000, being charged by j ' Lewis S.

They were seen to commit the desperate act by Mr. Edt ward McDermot, of 60 Barclay street, who upon exjiostur luting with the ruilians for their conduct, was significantj ly told by one of them, that " if he did not trudge along and mind his own business, they would serve him in the r same maimer." He took their advice, and in company with Mr. Lynch secured the aid of watthman Wm. C. Thompson, who succeeded in arresting both the\illains ' soon alter wurds, they liaving remained near the place ^ where they committed the act, as is presumed to repeat it , on some other person. On being brought to the watch . house, it was discovered that their names were Richard U. Morrison, recently out sf state prison, and David 11. I'latt, tw o of the most vitiations looking rogues that have ' graced the police lor years. They wore fully prepared r with the implements of their business, as a loaded cane or " hilly," and lead knuckler were found in their pockets. The proof against them is of such a character as to ensure > conviction and punishment in the state prison, which i cannot be less than ten years each. One of the tickets ' taken from Lynch, wus found in the pocket of I'latt when I searched. An isiroktant C*?r.?A case of an unusual character , is now pending helore Judge Barton of Philadelphia, on a writ of haheat corpui. It sprung from the following cir' cumstances : In October, l?3H. a man, named Alexander 1 L. Clark, was convicted in this city of obtaining goods upon false pretences, the indictment being framed under a statute of that State similar to the act ol' our Assembly j abolishing imprisonment for debt?the latter, indeed, be| ing but an imperfect copy of the former. In pursuance of the verdict he was sentenced to an imprisonment of five ' years in the Penitentiary, at Sing Sing, Kut while on his way thither he escaped from the custody of the SherilLaud was lost sight of from that time. A few days since, how1 ever, a man calling liimsell Alexander Denny, who has " been trading with several houses in Philadelphia for the - last two years, and has at the same time been carry ing on j business as a merchant in one of the southwest, rn States. f was arrested at the suit ot a creditor for the?sum of $9000, ) and while in custody was recognised by an individual as the man Clark. Information was immediately sent o i to ' Governor Seward, a requisition obtained, ami the prisoner was about to be conveyed to this city as a fugitive from justice, when this writ of habeas corpus was issued by ' Judge Barton. The prisoner denies his identy with Clark, uiidliis counsel also insists upon his discharge, on the ground that the requisition can only take elfect upon a person oharged with an otfence ; in w hich case he can be sent on for trial, and not upon a person convicted and sen' tenoed, and demanded for the sole purpose of punishment. The clause in the Constitution of the United States, which j requires persons held to labor in one State and escaping to another, to be surrendered upon a requisition, it is contended applies only to the case of absconding slaves ; that I the surrender of criminals is anly by virtue of a State law ? or usage, and that there exists in Pennsylvania no law or usage which empowers the executive to send persons into i other States upon a requisition disclosing the tact that the individual is wanted for the mere purpose of inflicting punishment upon him. The ingenuity of counsel, if not its inherent difficulties, has so involved this question that it will require long and patient examination, and the judge win nearer a wrmen opinion, wnen it is ready to l>e ile- l r lirered. Monr. CounTrRFEiTKm Arrested.?In addition to the large number of counterfeiters arrested on Thursday and Friday, Samuel U. Barrett, a seaman, who lately arrived in this city from Matagorda*, was pulled yesterday for attempting "to pass a f>3 counterfeit note of the Oreenwich Bank, at the Box-ottice of the Chatham Theatre on Friday I evening.

I' Very surprising to relate, one of these birds vv as killed in Blandford, (adjoining retrrsbarg) on Thursday last. It appears that a negro observing the bird on the road, threw J a stick at it and broke its wing. C oming into the hands _ of a gentleman in town, he compared it with the plate ol the I'etrel in Wilson'* Ornithology, and found it to be identical therewith. The Petrel is seen far out at sea, flitting rapidly near the surface of the water. They ar* R commonly noticed on the eve of a storm?hence they are r regarded somewhat superstitiously by the mariner. The French term the Petrel " I'oittau trmutlf^ihu storm-bird. V It has also been fancifully supposed that the name Petrel is p taken Irom St. Peter, because he w alked on the surface ol e the water.
