Mormow Affairs.?The following extra from the Illinois State HegisUr, gives the latest, and we must say rather doubtful news : SrsDir, September 31, 184S.?We issue an extra lor the purpose ol furnishing tho latest news from Hancock. It sppears that the anti-Mormons continued their work of destruction until upwards ol one hundred houses have been consumed Hherifl'Backenstoa failed in raising a possee strong enough to stop these movements without resulting to Nauvoo. owing to the fear ot all well dis posed iioraoiis in the country, thut their owu houses might be consumed. We learn that he has raised about five hundred men from Nauvoo, all well armed, with which he had dispersed the rioters, commanded by Col. Williams, at Green Plains. In this affair no lives were lost, as the "Antis" run and took shelter in a cornfield, before the possee came with in firing distance. Backcnstos had been driven away from Carthage, and returned with about five hundred men, to remove his family ; on his retreat he fell in with a large body of Anti-Mormons, when a battle ensued. It is said that eighteen Anti-Mormons and three Mormons were lulled. It appears that Williams, Sharp, Davis, and other lead ers, escaped. A large number of the Anti-Mormons were taken prisoners, and urn new confined and guarded in the court house at Carthage. The people had all fled from Carthage. Augusta, and other Anti Mormon towns, and carried their families into the counties ol Adams, Marquette, Schuyler, and McDonough, ami are beating up for volunteers in those counties to recruit their forces with which to ienew the war It is unknown how many men they will be able to raise, but it is believed that they have se disgraced themselves by the incendiary mode in which they have carried on the war, that their success will not be very great. But if they succeed, another bloody battle may be ex|<ected in the courae of this week. Heioro this news arrived, the (Governor had issued a call for five hundred me', to quell the disturbances. We are advised that it is a fact that no letters have been received at this place from any of the Mormon par ty since the commencement ol these troubles,except one fioin a very obscure man in Nauvoo, and another from McDenough county, and no new*|>apers.

The argument was listened to with the closest attention?it was at once chaste and brilliant, and the learned couuael closed his remarks with a pathetic and most effecting appeal for mercy, which brought big drops of pity into the eye. and caused them to 'course do*n the rugged, furrowed chsdk of some hardy moun taineer, while the counsel told of the anguish of a broken hearted mother, and the feelings of a father for a son, on trial for his life. J. II. Steele, Esq , District Attorney of Otsego County, and a brother of the late Hheriff. Osrnon N. Steele, fol lowed Mr. Bowne, on the part of the people. The Court now took a recess for dinner. Upon again assembling, Hon. Samuel Oordon rose to make the closing remarks to the Jury, on the part of the prisoner. As Mr. Oordon commenced, the Court-Koom door opened, and a brilliant array of beauty, grace and love liness entered the hall where justice sat enthroned in her majesty The sudden and unexpected appearance omen, caused the gallant of so many fair and beautiful women, counsel te pause until they were seated. Their Hashing eyes, graceful forms, sparkling and animated features, ;h from the undoubtedly drew forth from the learned counsel, the feeling, able and logical argument which he made. Old Delaware's laiiest daughters, with hearts fall of sympathy, mercy and affection, had congregated in her couit house, to witness the trial of one of her sons foi his life. The hitherto downcast face of the piisoner seemed to brighten with hope, as he gazed in astonish meut on this sudden display of loveliness. The hand some features of the presiding Judge, who has been for days busily engaged in the performance of his stern du ty, was now wreathed with smiles, as each blooming 1'ebe and simple maid of nature took her seat. But the greatest sensation was manifested among youngor members of the bar, BDd (shall I say it?) the corps of reporters who sat directly opposite the dazzling array. Mr. (ioanov's speech was listened to throughout with bieathless interest He commenced with somu remuiks in relation to the persecution ne had himself received in consequence of having addressed meetings of anti-rent ers, and than passed to some questions of law. He con ten fed that the assembling of disguised men to resist the execution of a distress warrant, though armed, was not per te a felony under the 7th section of the act of the 98th of January, 1846. but a misdemeanor only; that the stat ute does not declare the offence to be a felony; that it is a new crime created by the statute, and not a felony at common law. The offence was punishablo by fine or j imprisonment in the c rnnty jail, or by imprisonment in the 8tate prison, and not declared a felony; that if not a felony at the common law, which it was uot, it is not a fe lony bythe statute,unless theLegi.-latuie so declare it dis tinctly. Felony does not depend on the amount er degree of punishment,but the nature of the crime; petit larceny is punishable by fine and imprisonment in tie county jail, and yet it is a felony at common law, because by com mon law a forfeiture of lands and goods was a conse quence of the conviction. So crimes are punishable with death, and yet no felonies. Murder is a felony at common law, because tho lands and goods were forfeit ed. Felony comprises every species of crime which occasioned at common law a forfeiture of lands and goods, ltiots were not felonies at common law. Felo nies, breaches of the peace, are strained up to that de gree ol malignity by virtue of the Statutes declaring them to tie lelonies. Disfranchisement is part of the pun ishment on a conviction for lelony, end when the Legis lature intend to affix to a new crime then created the dis qualification of disfranchisement, they mutt so declare their intention by galling it a felony; because it was not a felony at common law. In this case, if the offence be a felony, it is contingent, depending on the amount of punishment to be imposed by the court after conviction. If felony must be absolute at the time of its commission, and not made such by the expost facto sentence of the court, a crime is felony orno felony when committed.? In tho construction of penal statutes, when there is any doubt in the case, it is the duty of the court and jury so to construe them as not to multiply the felonies, unless tho construction be supported by express words. Here is an attempt by construction of a doubtful penal statute to multiply felonios to build on them constructive murder. The argument of the opposite side assumes that the assembling of disguised men was a felony, and there tore all were guilty of murder, though not actually pre sent, nor consenting to the firing of the guns. The learn ed counsel then took up the facts of the case, to show that if the crimo was a felony, still tho defendant was not present at the firing?did not consent to it?and was not, therefore, guilty of a felony. The Court now took a recess for tea. Upon again as sembling, Sasii xl Sherwood, F.sq. counsel for people, summed up the case for the people. He reviewed the testimony with his usual brevity and discrimination, and quoted from the Revised Statutes and other books, to show that the persons assembling at Eurle's were guilty of felony, and therefore of murder, as a murder was committed. Mr. Sherwood Tead from 5d Revised Statutes, page 697, section 30th, the following The term ' felony,' when used in this act or in any other statute, shall be construed to mean an ofi'ence for which the offender, on conviction, shall be liable by law to be punished by death, or by imprisonment in a State prison" Mr. Sherwood continued at some length on this subject.

The jury ampalueled iu the case of the I'oople vs. Dr. BoughtoD, have now been 111 confinement twelve hours, and as yet, there is no possibility of a verilict. The last report from the scene of their deliberations is 9 lor con viction, and 3 for acquittal. Judge Edmonds is deter mined to keep them confined until there is no ho|>e left either fur the prisoner or the poor carcasses of the jurors themselves. If thev should agree, I will transmit their verdict to you, in all possible haste. Our city was unusually distuihed yesterday, by the arrival of all the Van Buion family, and some ot tLe more renowned gentlemen oftho day. Ex Attorney General Barker ia now here, accompanied by several ot the west ern locofoco pedestrians on the ladder ot democracy, anxiously awaiting the deliberations of a pettit jury The Attorney General made a very able speech of some eight hours in length, to a house full of the fair and beautiful of our city and neighboring towns, who en couraged the young widower by their smiles, and made him brave and eloquent by their presence. All eyes beamed with love and enthusiasm, when he arose and pronounced the emphatic words of?Gentlemen of the Jury. It seemed to electrify the female part of the com munity mightily, if 1 may be enabled to judge from the tittering which was constantly kept up. His speech was pronounced by all to bo the best argument, fraught with more good sense and sound reasoning than he ever made before. He was particularly pointed in his remarks con cerning tho Sheriff's testimony. Elf-vsr, A. M.?The Jurv have just come in with a verdict of guilty. Judge Edmonds had a few minutes previous ordered beds lor them, which brought them to the scratch in double quick time. He deferred the sen tence until 3 P. M. inst. The prisoner seemed to betray no symptoms of grief, but bore it with becoming Indian fortitude. Hit countenance, although care-worn, teemed a little more downcast when told of his fate. Sheriff Miller was elated beyond comparison: his mouth toemed stretched from ear to ear when the spell ot silence which pervaded the room was broken by the sonorous tone of Guilty, uttered by the foreman. Two, P. M.?The Court ha* again convened to pro nounce sentence upon the guilty?and a jammed house it is?all the tlite of the city are, it seems, on the quo t-ive for a parting peep at the prince of widowers, who looks rather worn out to-day, owing to the arduous task he has performed. The prisoner, uj?on being asked if he had any thing to say why the sentence of the law should not be pronounced upon him, replied in a few remarks, the substance of which was that he was innocent, and always thought he was doing nothing wrong when act ing in the capacity of an Indian. He was then sentenced, in a brief hut solemn sentence, to hard labor for life in the State Prison. Thus this farce hath ended; nature still blooms and plotting man still will plot. And now since we hare danced comes our mite to the fiddler, which will be a sore one. This, however, is the most extraordinary case I have ever heard of. All whose minds have not been poisoned with prejudice ete astonished and amazed at the verdict. History furnishes no parallel. Tsn witnesses swearing po sitively to an alibi, and still the jury convicting the pri soner. They retired last evening at nine o'clock, and sat up all night. Tbey first stood sir and six.then nine/or cent irfmg and t brie for acquitling.and laetly Ion In tvo, fill they agreed. What accounts for this Strang# procedure ! Was it the evidence .' Common sense toil us, no ! Was it the address of the Attorney General I Those who listoned to his remarks, cannot attribute it to that. Was it Judge Edmonds'.charge ? Oh ! there's the rub. Did he not tell the iury "that circumstantial evidence was more reliable than positive." Let him answer. Doctor Boughton has been sentenced by the Judge to spend the remuinder of his days in the State Prison, in the County of Clinton. He is thirty six years old, was born in Kensselcar Countv, in tbe town of Nas an, gra duated at Middleburg College in 1830, received tbe de gree of M.

Steele, the uncle of the lamented Deputy Sheriff, till the breaking out of the Patriot war in Canada, when he enlisted under Gent ml Van Rensaelear, at Albany, together with Gen. Root's son, who was then a cadat at west Point, and went to help the Patriots. He was engaged in the battles of Charleatown, Windmill Point and Navy Island.
