RENEWAL OF THE MORMON WAR. Our western exchangee have, within the lust few days, detailed to us some shocking instances ; ot ntob law. We annex one or two: [From the Athens, Ohio, Atheneum, Sept. 13.] We learn verbally, an well lis by the letter of our cor respondent, found below, that th? most intense excite ment and mob spirit has prevailed at Logan, Hocking county, for the last few day* The particular causes which have given lisoto tin so lawless proceedings (for we ran call them by no milder name) are sufficiently portruyed by our correspondent i ? Loo is, Sept. 9th, 181 i.?The greatest excitement has prevailed in our town for the last two days. Our county lius been infested lor the last six or eight years by a law less band of horse-thieves, counterfeiters, who made Green township, in the eastern pait of the county, their head quarters ond the place of their grand councils. ? Alania Mntheny, the leader of this banditti, became so bold uud impudent that he walked our streets like a lord, urnied with a butchor-knife some 13 or 14 inches in length, together with firearms, threatening those who dared to spenk disrespectful of his profession, with immediate destruction. On Monday morning this Matheny oame into town, walked up to one of our citi zens standing in the door of the post otiice, and whom he had previously threatened with death, placing one hand upon the handle of the betchar-k ife, verv impudently accosted him with, "good morning Mr. Nelson." Mr. Nelson expecting Matheny to assassinate him, instantly returned the salutation with a blow across the arm,which disabled him from using his knife. Ma'lieny run into the post office, but was followed close, and the blows repeat ed with a heavy cane, until ho attempted an escape from them hy his speed in running ; he wa. or<v taken in the middle of the street, lelled to the ground and severely beatuu. It is thought, however, that he will recover.? The work was then begun?a meeting of the c itizens was immediately called, at w hich spirited resolutions were passed, to lid our county ot said Matheny and his accom plices, who are not few in number. A committee was ap points:! to wait on nil those persons suspeotcd of harbor ing, or being connected in any manner with said Mathe ny, and give them so many da'ys to settle their business and leave the county. This committee discharged tneir duty with fidelity and to the general satisfaction of the citizens. They gave Matheny till to-morrow at 3 o'clk, some 34 hours, to make his depaiturc. The buildings ol some have been laid low as a certain indication of whut we mean. [From the St. Louis Republican, Sent. 16] Wo gave yesterday an account of a fresh outbreak among the Mormons and Anti-Mormons in Illinois, and to-day have to udd the follow ing, dated Quincy, Adams county, Illinois, Sept. 14 " We write in hasto to inform you of a serious dis turbance that has taken place in the upper part of this county, belwcvn a portion ot the " old citizens" of this ami Hancock county, and tho Mormons. A gentleman belonging to the city, returned from Lima, in the vicini ty ot the outbreak, last evening, and informs us that on Thursday Inst tho anti-Mormons attacked a settlement known hy the name of " Morley'a Settlement," a short distance north-east of Lima, in this county, and that up to the time he lult, twenty-livo or thirty houses had been burnt, together with several barns and whoat stacks. The excitement was vory great, and large bodies of anti Mormons were pouring in from the adjoining counties and from Missouri, and they were still burning and de stroying property, and were determined to drive the .Mormons out of tho county. Our informant saw about City Mormons under aims within two miles from the set tlement,who appeared determined to defend themselves. It was in contemplation by the anti-Mormons to attack two inuie settlements last evening." In addition to what is stated in the above letter, wo learn by the Die Vernon, that a gentleman who had visit ed the ramp of the anti-Mormons, near Lima, estimated them to be about 300 strung. Ilo was also at the camp of the Mormons, and lound them to number about 100. After leaving the camps, lie returned to Warsaw, where he remained some time, and learned that the Mormons had all moved into Nauvoo, and that Backenstos, the Mormon Sheriff, had ordered out tho Legion, to arrest those who had commenced these disorders. If this re port should he truo, and the Legion turns out, a conflict is inevitable. A letter to Messrs. Mathews auil I'atcb, ot this city, on Saturday evening, from Warsaw, says that business was suspended on account ol the difficulties with the Mormons, and that several houses had been huined, and lives lost. [From tiie St. Louis Republican, Sept. 17.1 We have already given to our readers such informa tion from tho seat of civil war and commotion in Adams and Hancock counties, Illinois, us wo have been able to obtain A long letter in tiie Qizr'ney Daily Courier oi Monday last, confirms all that has been published in re gsi'd to the pretended origin ol the difficulties? the firing upon a meeting of anti-.Mormons, near Limn, assembled to consult upon measures to protect their property from Ike depredations of the Mormons. That such an attack was mane, without injury to any one, is admitted to be true, but, while tho Anti-Mormon party charge it upon the Mormons, the Intter allege that it was a trick of the former, to secure a pretext lor the depredations which they are now making. The meeting, at all events broke up in a hurry, escaping out of the doors aud windows, and some oi them leaving their hats behind them. On Wednesday and Thursday, after brief warning to the oc cupants, the burning of the dwelling-houses of the Mor mons commenced. On Kridoy, other houses were bred In the course of that day, a committee of Mormons, with a (lag ol truce, entered Lima, to treat with their enemies. Captain Newton volunteered to introduce them to some citizens of Hancock county, and did so. They met in council?Kdson Wiutne; , Joel Catlin and Samuel Flem ing, representing tno anti-Mormons, informing them at the same time that tiioy were not authorized by the pub lic to do any thing, bu' acted on their own responsibility. They were ready, however, to receive any proposition tending to nllay the oxcitcment. The follow proposition was then submitted : Adams County, Sept 12, 1843. " We, the undersigned, a Committee appointed by the Morley and Hancock aettlementa, (a branch of the .Mor mon church.) Whereat, aa there ia seeming to be some difficulty between said body and the Anti-Mormona, we, aa representatives of auid body, wish to make some pro positions so aa to make peace. We wish to sell our deeded lands as well also as our improvements, na low as it could be reasonably expected?reserving to ousclvca the crops now on tiie premises?and will take in ex change, working cattle, biel cattle, cows, sheep, horses, wagons,'haratss,stoie goods,and any available property, ami give possession as soon as our crops can be taken off, and receive the pay for the same, tho whole of which muy he purchased from the undersigned, acting as Com mittee, orfrom the respective owners Daniel Tyler, Ho races. I taw so n, MarcellMs McKowu, Samuel Alger." Mr. Whitney remarked to the committee that lie be lieved their proposition would be uusatislactoiy in one particular : that il he had to buy out a bad neighbor to get riil ot him, he would like to know what distance lie wonld remove from him The committee replied they would not agree to leave Hancock, nor would they say in what part of that county they would again settle. It is useless perhaps to ado that the interview amounted to ; and the work of destruction commenced again cat evening. On (toilay) Satui day several more build ings were burned. In passing along a road about three i|uaitcrs of a mile distant, about 3 o'clock, 1 saw the smoke and flames of two rising upon the air. On ar riving at Lima I ascertained the buildings were situated about a mile anil a nail from that place. .Many men were collected in groups in the streets, and the doors and windows of tno houses were filled with women anil chil dren looking in silent despair upon the work of the de stroying element. Where tho work of destruction will stop, (ioil only knows. Tho iceling is deep and intense, and the excitement continually kpieailing. Up to Friday morning, as near as I could ascertain, Iwcnty-tlirce buildings were burned. During lust night and to-day toe number is probably swelled to thirty, or perhaps nine. The party engaged in the woik go undisguised, in broad day light, ami apply the toich. So far no one has been injured, not has any property, 1 was told, been destroyed Inn the houses, except by accident. Sparks fioin some of the buildings leil upon a few gram slacks, which igni ted, and weie consumed. 'J lie party which first commenced the work of destruc tion dm not amount to rnoro than twenty or thirty. What ll,e number is now cannot be ascertained. The Auti o ormons, not engaged in the burning, are collecting and preparing to act upon the defensive. I understood a meeting of aiiti-Mormons was to !>? held at Uarlhage to day. What it will amount to time will determine. The .Mormons aie encamped about three nules from where the scene of destruction first commenced. Their number on f riday was variously estimated, from ono to three hun dred, butan hour's timo may greatly sw ell their ranks. Uoth parties aro well armed, and all the aiiti-Murinons Willi whom I conversed, expressed the boliel that the work ol destruction could not be stayed until tho .Mor mons were driven into Nauvoo. Time will either con firm or negative this belief. Our accounts by the last boate are brought down to Sunday night. Tho woik ot destruction was progres sing, and extending itsell with hourly increasing vio lence. Tho anti-.Murmons, it is understood, have taken measures to secure a general concentration ol forces liom tar and near, and they declare that they will not slop short ol the expulsion of every .Mormon Irein Han cock county - in wnich .Nauvoo is situuted. itissaid, tbiit up to Sunday night, about sixty houses had been burned dow n in Adams and Hancock counties. Captain Duun is at th i head ol four or flvo hundred antiMoimona 1. oin Augusta, and expiesscs a dotei mination to protect the friends ot that party against the Mormons. Mean w hile, we have from Nauvoo the following proclamation of the Sheriff ol Hancock county : ? PROCLAMATION. To the Cititem oj Hancock County--Whereas, a mob of from ono to two hundred men, under arms, have gathered themselves together in the south west pai t of Hancock county, and arc n'. this time destroying the dwellings and other buildings, stacks ol grain and other property, of a portion ol our citi/.oiis, iu the most inhu man manner, compelling defenceless children and wo men to leave their sick beds, and exposing fliein to tho i.iys ol the parching sun, there to laj ami sudor without the aid or assistance ol a friendly hand to minister to liieir w aula, in their suffering condition. i'lie rioters spare not the widow nor the orphan, and w lulu I am writing this proclamation, the smoke is rising to the clouds, and the Hemes are devouring tour build ings which have just been set on firo by the rioters ? 'I houseuds of dollars woitli of property has already been consumed, on entire settlement of about sixty orscienty families laid waste, the inhabitants thereof are lired upon, narrowly escaping with their lives, and ierced to flee heloie the ravages ot tho mob. By the revised laws of our State, under the criminal code, sixth division AH section, page 'HI, the crime ol mi son is defined as follows :?"Eveiy person who shull wilfully an.1 maliciously hum, or cause to bo burned, any dwelling house, kitchen, ottice, shop, bain, ttable, store house, See.. See., shall he deemed guilty of mi .on and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by im prisonment in the penitentiary tor a term not less than one- year, nor more than ten years, and should the life or lives of any person he lost in consequence of any such offence aforesaid, such offender shall he guilty of mur der, and shall he indicted and punished accordingly ." And whereas, the laws ot this State make it my duty as a peace oltiuer of tins county to suppress all lioto, routs, ire., Ate , and all other crimes, Therefore, I.J. 15. lluckenstos, sheriff of the county of Hancock, uud State ot Illinois, in the name of the people ot suidjstute and by tne authoiityvested in me hy virtue of my oilice, hereby solemnly command the said rioters and other peace breakers to desist forthwith, disperse, and ?0 to their homes, under the penalty of the laws; and 1 hatrhy call upon the law abiding citizens, as a pom comitatv* of Hancock county to give their united aid in suppressing the rioters, and maintain the supremancy of the law. J. B B ACKKNSTO.S, Sheriff of Hancock oo., III. P. 3.?It is a part of my policy that the citizens of Nauvoo remain quiet, and not a man from that city leave as a posse, until it he made manifest that tho law and or der citizens without the city will not havo force suffi cient to suppress the lioters of this disgraceful outrage, but that a,COO effective men hold themselves in readiness to march at u moment's warning to any point in Han cock county.

The Court of Oyer and Terminer was not in session to-day, in consequence of several suits demanding the presence of Judge Parker in the Circuit Court. The District Attorney is busily engaged preparing causes for tiial, and one will probably be brought on to morrow. Tho Jay of retribution is therefore close at hand. Tho mm Jerers of Steele, and their misgui ed and guilty as sociates, will ho brought to justice. The powerful arm oft lie 1h w has at length been extended to protect tho rights of the unoffending, maintain its own dignity, and hiiug the guilty to puiii?hment. A melancholy hut cu rious state ul things is hero presented. The County of Delaware declared by the Governor, in mi ofticial and solemn proclamation, to be in a state of insurrection?300 Stuto rroops within its borders?the jails overflowing with its citizens, nearly one hundred of whom have been already indicted for murder, while their homes are left unprotected, their wives ond childron unprovided for, their crops uncut ? misery, want, care ond terror, brooding like a bird of ovil omen on tho threshold of their dwellings. Within these, the wife and mother sits mourning and wailing ? her children gather around her, tint she will not he comforted, f ho husband whom she loved, tho son whom she held dear us her own life,are incarcerated within the gloomy walls of n felon's cell, waning trial for the vilest of crimes. Has she not di aincri the cup of bitterness to its very dregs 1 No hope is leIt her, hut in Him who " feed etli the ravens'"?the partner of her loves and sorrows is;gone, perhaps, for ever, and all that remains is misery. And him? tho man who brought this wretchedness upon his wife, Olid made his county the abode of anarchy, confusion and murder, does he not merit the fate which the law provides! In open day, disguised in a most hideous costume, with weapons of death in their hands, and minds imbued with the spirit of a fiend, hundreds ol infuriated men havo marched foithin hatallious, and re sisted the officers of justice in the execution of their duty, tired the dwellings of their landlords and neigh bors held the whole couaty in dismay?and at length, in mere wantonness, put to death an innocent ond hai m Ic.-s individual "And all for nothing." For tho grati fication of evil passions and kaso desires, tho offspring ot cupidity, meanness, and avarice. For many of these men were rich in this world's goods?worth $12,000, the profits of their leased farms. Tho causes which produced this great anti-rent move ment, have been so frequently dwelt upon?so clearly and faithfully pointed out iu the editorial colums of the Herald?that it would he idle to nttempt a further ex planation. No other explanation can he given; and the views of the Herald nrc, therefore, becoming the settled opinions of all thinking and reasonable men in this quar ter. The "elements ol Inuaticism, of disorganization, ol wild ami dreamy speculation," have, indeed, hoeti at work, nnd anti-Kontism is the offspring. Designing knaves and brawling c-iuzy enthusiasts, have made the press an instrument lor corrupting the minds of the masses, by appealing to their lowest and most brutal passions. Demagogues from all directions, have loudly proclaimed dogmas and creeds which tend towards a complete and entire derangement of the social system? they have visited these disaffected counties?disaffected in consequence oi leading the doctrines of the new school of political enthusiasts and visional <es?and after making inflammatory appeals to the passions and prejudi ces ot the inhabitants, roused thorn to action whilo thus goaded to madnes-~ by a sense of imaginary evilH. Upon these men rests the greatest sin?upon their heads a portion of the just vengeance of an enlightened, but out raged community, should toll. Kven the misguided men now in custody, curse the anti-rent lecturers, and the papers that have so wickedly misled them. But they mint also hear the punishment which their own acts have rendered uec*s?sry to the continued safety of the community. The war is not over and will not be whilo the spirit ot discord and disorganization blooms and flourishes ; Hi rank growth must he stopped?the serpents head must ho eru lied ere its venomous fangs have spread destruction around. Anti-rentism is not dead?the arrest of the prin cipal " chiefs" and the victims of their craft, has struck | terror into the souls of mauy insurrectionists, but there | are enthusiasts enough among them, who, though now silent, are but waiting tin opportunity to arouse the de iiu>n of misrule and again spread terror and dismuj among this once happy people The green and beautiful valleys, homes and happiness of joy?the giant lulls, tan gled wilds and rockyglens?abodes of solitude nnd peace, may again echo and re-eaho to the tramp of armed men ' and the shrill war whoop of " Indians."

The steamers leaving lor the upper lakes hare not been more crowded with merchandise since 1839, and indeed so great is the amount offering for such destination to-day, that some must lie over, although three Chicago boats are preparing to depart. Down freight is abundant too, and prices from the leading wheat points on l.ako Michi gan have advanced to a good living price.

Why is it that you do not locate a correspondent here 1 There s* as much of public interest going on here, us at any other place where you have stationed writers and reporters. Our local papers, are all of i them, ot any note, under the control either of the political, hank, steamboat, or railroad monopolies, which prevents the truth front being published. If a railroad engine crosses our streets at twelve hour speed, and dashes horses and carriages to atoms, kills men, women and children, breaks the bones of drivers, &c , why, a formal coroner's inquest is held, engineers and others under railroad pay arc admit ted as witnesses, and the conductors, breakmen and engineers are exculpated from blame, and the cause of death is attributed to the drivers of carriages?as rnuc i us to say, that the horses und carriages run into und over the locomotive and half a dozen pas senger and baggage cars! Our pa|iers merely men tion the fact that such accidents occur, and invari ably acquit the conductors of the road ot all blame. So it is with the rascality of steamboat agents ; our papers vindicate their conduct, even if hundreds of passengers are injured thereby. So also with the canal ptrutes; their villainies are never ex|iosed through the press?their impositions upon strangers j are rather winked at and encouraged, titan laid be- : tore the public. As the election is fast approaching, the political elements are beginning to agitate ; and it 's certain that in this county and .Senate District, the excite ment will be greater than in any other section of the '< State, in consequence of the anti-rent fever.

Harris, the disappointed candidate, will now he run for the As- i sembly by whigs and anti-renters, and indulges in , the idea ot being Speaker of the next House ; and if , the whigs will drop John Young, why then the In- ! dians will put Harris in training for the Chair ot 1 Stare against "Cato." The democrats met in County Convention yester day, at a place called " Pumpkin Town," and made a ticket, which will professedly be run for the As sembly. A regular flare-up between the hunkers and burners. The hunkers go anti-rent, and suc ceeded in Imaging out a real Indian ticket. The burners are in htghdudgeon, ramping and swearing that this was only done to show Governor Wright thatlliere is a determined hostility against hirn in his anti-rent movements. It is a stab at his Excel lency, directed by Croswell, Speaker Seymour, (who is now here) Denton and Corning, and thrust by Waason, Gallup, Peckhain and little Hilly Smith. Hut the question is now settled?the leading hunkers are ami-rent; every man oh their ticket is decided ly, openly and vociferously engaged in that excite ment. And were I a party man, 1 should certainly deprecnte the union of any party with that deluded faction.

It is a limpid fluid at the ordinary temperature ; but, when heated to a certain point, it becomes a transparent colorless glass, and re mains so when it becomes cool. It is a volatile oil ob tained by distiliiDg the balsam, styrax, or stornx, al though in small quantities. In distilling storax to obtain this liquid, twenty parts of storax are mixed with seven parts of carbonato of soda, and water nut in the retort. Forty one pounds of balsam have yielded 19 ounces oi styrole. It is said that the fresher and softer the storax tho more productive it is. This remarkable property of styrole will no doubt attract the attention ol opticians. The. numerous nnd extensive brick-yards in this city have been unable to supply the demand. Large quantities ol bric.k have been brought over from Jefler sonville. The houses built are all occupied, as fast as tiuished.

Canal the Falls of the Ohio.?The canal around the Falls, or, as they should be called, the Rapids of the Ohio river, commences about 9j miles west from Louisville, Ky , and runs up into the city.? We understood that it cost an immense amount of money some three or four millions of dollars, and that for a long time it was anything but a paying concern, but within tho last few yoars business upon it has so much increased that it is now the best stock to bo heard of in tho south west. The canal is scant 9} milos long, has four or five locks of 185 feet in length by AO feet wide, and will pass steamboats ol over 800 tons hurthern. Tho tolls aie pro bably more exorbitant than upon any canal in this coun try, they being assessed not upon the amount of cargo oariiod through by a vessel, hut upon the tonnngo ol the vessels as shown by her register. Thus a light steam board a bolt pays just as much as one having on board a full car go. The rato of toll is 40 cents per ton a vessel of 600 tons paying $900 for a passage of about three hours.? Two tilths of the stock, we are inlotmud, is owned by the state, and tho balance by individuals, aud the annual dividends leach 4.1 per cent, besides leaving a large lund on hand for repairs. It is but just to state that w hen the river is high, tho stoamhoats never trouble the canal,but run over the fails. It is only nt a low stage of water like that of the presont year, that the canal can control all the business. None of this canal stock is for sale.

Thy first of these now engagements came oft' yesterday. and a gr?at number of persons were on tho ground. The match that excited the most interest was ouu ot single wicket between Iliue, E. Hardy, Horn buckle, J. Buckley,and Southern on one side ; and F. Nash, T. Dent, Pidcock, Berry and C. Smith on the other side. They w ere to play two innings each, with a con dition that if both could not he con luded before "sun down," the first should decide the wager, lime, tho hero ol the Star Cluh, got sistoeu runs for tiis party, and his colleagues did not make a single score. Nash's snlo made only nine runs, and the second innings not being finished when time u as up, tho Brook yn men,of course, won. The next match to be player, is one of single wicket betw een David Price and T Dent on one side, against Messrs. Hine and Julieu. We are not iuforme I when it will come oft". An oiler was made by a gentle man or the giound to hack (he great gun of tho -Star Club, ugaiu-.t .Mr. William ilusseli, onool'the most cele brated play ers in the United Slate-, lor a large amount of money ; and a friend of the latter agreed to take up the challenge, in the event of Mr. Russell's accept ing it. Another offer was mado by a well-known sporting gentleman to back the Star Club ol Brooklyn to play tho entile stiength of the New York Club It remains to be seen whether the New Yorkers will venture to meet their neighbors across the river on tho terms pro posed. By way of varying the sport, and adding to the enter tainment of tho'many spectators present, several foot races were gut up. in which lust-rate speed was shown by some of the competitors.

Alter the guests had liberally partakeu of the dish provided for them, and had express ed themselves highly gratified with its superlative excel lence and flavor, they were quietly informed that they had made a meal of cat soup?and such was indeed the fact. Such n disgorging as took placo was ludicrous enough to witness, although we cannot see what parti cular fun there is in thus culpably imposing upon per sons who were asked to participate in a hospitable enter tainment. It is nevertheless true that this scene was en acted by some individuals who style themselves respec tablo, and that among those who tasted the relish were two of the most shrewd police officers of Brooklyn. Ami i her Batch of Mrs.Caudles?Duringthe cricket supper at Russell's, in Adams street, on Wednesday evening, the spouses of two of the gentlemen who had been engaged in the g?me made their appearance und insisted upon the immediate departure ot their husbands to their respective homes. The?e propositions were at lirst calmly objected to , then remonstrated against as abitrary und tyrannical, and subsequently refused as being contra honoi mnrei, and as compromising the rights and dignity of manhood. Neither arguments, threats, nor persuasions would, however, appease the tierce demands of the infuriated dames, and their lords and masters?completely crest fallen and subdued? were compelled to make an inglorious retreat.

Battle of Hunker Hit.t.?Discovery of In tkrkstinu Relics.?For some days past, workmen have been engaged ill digging a well on tho Battle ground, in Charlestown, on land owned by 1'hinens J. Stone. On Saturday, quite an excitement was produced by the discovery ot several entire human skeletons, and on some careful search being made, a largo number ol other articloa were tound. whicn at once indentified the spot as the depository of the remains of a large number ol those who fell in tho memorable battlo of the 17th June, 1776. The skeletons were in an unusually sound i condition, and on one ol the skulls, a wound, apoarontly inllicted by a sword, was plainly visible. On another, the hair was found almost entire, and in a remarkable state of preservation, tfuite a number of metal buttons, numbered from 43 to 1)2. were also thrown up. These would seem to have belonged to the enemy,as they bear the numbers of several ot their regiments, and as it is well known that none such were worn hy the Americans. The other articles consist of knee buckles, musket balls and copper coin, the latter being too much corroded to discover their character or dates. The place where these remains and relics wore found, Is supposed to have formed a part of oue of the main entrenchments at the time of the battle, and that the hodios w ere covered up where they tell or were thrown in immediately after the conflict.
