J The reeeipt of the accounts of the financial distresses in the East, caused considerable excitement in this city yos terday, which was augmented by the information that, drafts forwarded t > New York on the 6th September, by Sather At Church, had been protested. ***** Karly in the day quite a run was made upon the banks of Wells, Fargo ft Co., Taliant At Wilde, Fretz & Ralston, B. Davidson, and I'arrott & Co., but as all demands were promptly paid, the excitement soon ceased; and by twelve o'clock the miniature panic was soon at an end. During the day attachments were sued out against the well known shipping and commission house of Moore fc Folger, hide dealers, to the amount of $35,000. It la thought, however, thut the house will soon be able to re isume, their present difficulties being only temporary, and occasioned by the failure of Willetts At (x>. , or New York. The house of Moore k Folger bears a high reputation for honesty and good business, and it is hoped that they may come out of their troubles without serious injury. TheTrraanry Compromise. [From the San Francisco Chronicle, Nov. 3.1 The Attorney tieneral informs the 0MM that he was present when the first proposition was submitted by I'al mer, and advised the compromise if it could secure tho Ml from ultimate loss by Bites A Co. Some misapprehension existing about the position of the $16,000 mentioned by tho I'nion, in its previous issue, that paper gives the following further figures: ? In April, I860, Treasurer Bates paid to I'almer, Cook A Co. $??.0tK), to meet the interest due on State bonds in tho succeeding July. They failed to pay it, but after the Treasuaer contracted with Wells, Fargo At Co. to pay the same interest, I'almer, Cook A: Co. gave Bates a draft on New York for SHV>00, which wits huided to Wells, Fargo ft Co. , and by tieni soCcctel. This sum Bates failed to charge himself wife when paid back by I'almer, Cook At Co.; the legislative committee very properly ordered it to be charged against Hates, and it tnakos a portion of the $48,000 for which he is a defaulter. Tnis $16,000 I'almer declined to pay in the compromise, as he had once paid It, and as it is not included in tho compromise, ttill stands as a portion of the Hates' defal cation. Wo are told that the State is to receive $236,000 in real estate to cover the following debts, vl?: that due by I "ai mer, Cook A Co. $8*, 000. less the $15,000 (mid back to liale*; the $124,000 due by Pacific Kxpress Coni]>any , and the $48,000 due by Hates, making? I'almer. Cook & Co $7H,000 I'acific Kxpress Company 124,000 Hates' deficit 48,000 Total $260,000 In these rases the I'num does not think the State would ever, by suit upon the bonds of liate*, I'almer Cook A i Co.. receive $50,000. From the properiy she may realize $200,000. The indictment against Bates is in thu hands of the court : it cannot be disposed of by nuUc prosequi, ex cept with its consent. [From the San Fvancisco Herald, Nov. 5 ] Governor Johnson , Treasurer English, Attorney General Wallace, and District Attorney Hereford, says the Sacra mento lit* of the luth instant, have been engaged during a great portion of the two weeks Just passed in cooking up a settlement on behalf ol the State with the above named parties. On Saturday last, In San Francisco, tho matter was completed. The Judgment agalnet Talmcr, Cook k Co . for the non payment of the July, I860, interest in New York amounts to some $76,000. and that against Rates for the money given Rowe to pay the interest of this year in New York, which he failed to do, is for $124,000. As security for the payment of both these sums to tho State, the state officers are to receive from I'almer. Cook At Go. real estate now valued at $235,000. but which it is thought, will realize nearly if not quite the full amount of $200,000 in cash* A beard of appraisers, however, are yet to be appointed to place a cash value on the property, and it is to be taken at their appraisement. As a part nf the settle ment. District Attorney Hereford, who ? acting m this matter , by the authority of the Court, is to enter a nolU>. rtnji/i in the criminal case against Hates, and Rowe is to set at liberty in consequence thereof. This nnll. pmrnfui cannot prevent any future grand jury indicting Hates on the criminal charge, if they shall see tit to do so. Although a prosecuting officer may at any time refuse to proceed against n primmer, mid . in.-c luni to be discharged, he is not therefore exempted from tho crime in the eye of the law.

Declaration of Mur uioii Independenre [ From the San Francisco Herald, Nov. 3.] We ha\e date* from Ins Angeles to the ;i4th of October, Mid from San I>lego to the 17th of the rune mouth. Tho news is exceedingly im|*>runt Tho rcHhrt of the late mwwrf hu been fully con firmed. The number of persons slaughtered by tho In duuie wan lid. tireat excitement prevailed in Ixis Angeles on Uie announcement, shortly after the receipt of tho news, that |>?rlioa were m town who corroborate*! all tho Mateinent* that had been pre\ iou*ly made.

They had lately re turned from .Salt lake City. Mr. Power, In In* narrative, aaya ? We found the Mormon* making very determined pre parationa U) light the I'nited states troops, whenever they may arrive, (in our way in w<> met three companies of one hundred men each, armed and on the road towards the pn>o4 over Fort Bridger I was Void at Fort Bridger thai at Fort Supply, twelve miles thin aide ml fort Bridge, there were four hundred armed Indiana awaiting order*; they also i-aid that there were pixty thousand pound* of (lour stored at Tort Bridger, for the u*e of theirarmy. Wo found com panic* drilling every evening in the rtty. Tho Mormnu declared to u* that no I'nited State* lroo|??honld ever crow the mountain* And th- y talked aud acted a* If they were willing to take a brush with t'ncle Aim. We remained in ftUt lake Uve day*, and then pushed on. hoping we might overtake a larger train, whuh had started ten daya ahead of u*, and which proved to be the train tliat *v man aai red. We came on the Buttermilk Fort, near the lone cedar, one hundred and seventy fly?? mile*, and found the Inhabitants greatly enraged at th ? train which had Ju*t pawed, declaring that they had abused the Mormon women, calling them w *. K . , and letting on alxmt llie men TV people had refused to *ell that train any provision*, and told u* they wereaorry they had not killed them there, but they knew it would be done before they got In They aute.l further that they were boMirr 'he Indian* in check until the arrival of tlieir chief, wlicu he would follow the tram and cut it to pii#cs. The next place where we heard of the train waa on our arrival at leaver , vao mile-; from Salt lake. Hero wo learned (but when the train ahead waa encamped at ?"orn Creek, which waa thirty five m U'-> i>a- k ind at win. Ii place we found the Indiana no friendly, an ox died, and the Indian.* a^ked for it. IWore It waa given to them, a Mormon reported that he aaw an emigrant go to the car rasa and cut It with hl? knife, and aa tie did *o would pour aome liquid Into the cut from a phial The meat waa eaten by the Indiana, and three of them 4 led, i and aeveral more ef them woro atck and would die. Tho people at Beaver aeetned also to be incensed again*! the train for the aame reason an before reported. I aaked an Indian, at Beaver, If there waa any truth In the poi*oncd meat atory , be re JMiled.ln English, that he did not know . th it Nfm of the ndian* bad died, and several were aiok. He aaid their 1 watermelon* had made them all sick, and he believed that the Mormon* had poisoned them. On Frldav. the 18th of ?tepteml>er, we left l*arowi?n, sad asrived at Cedar City, aome eighteen mi lea, about ono o'clock. Purine tJie ilWm an enpresa arrived from the Indians, stating on* of their warriors had run up and looked Into the corral and he supposed that only Ave or si* of the emigrants were killed yet " These were tho words of the expressman The aame night four men were sent out from f'arowan to go and learn what was the fst* of the train, and. as they pretended, lo save, If possible, some of lis memW* I omitted to mentis, in the proper plan*, that Mr Pame. I*resid?nt of Parownn. informed nvr that the attack on the train commenced on Monday . the 14th of Septem ber I asked him it he , oold n<* raise a company and go out and relieve the besieged train. He replied that he could so Ml anil take thetn away In safety, but he dared not ? he dared not disobey counsel On Saturday at 18 o'clock, wo Isfl Cedar clly. About the middle of the afternoon we met the four men who werg sent 014 tho uight j revive* retiming In * wagon, Matthews and Tanner held ? council with thorn apart, and 1 when they left, Mattbt wa told mo the unUre train had bwn futoff; and, as it was still dangerous to travel road, they bad concluded it wan better for or to pass the spot In ihn night. Wo continued on, without much oon verf alien, and about dunlc nu t Mr. Damn, (I did not know that ho had leit Cedar city,) and threo other white men, coming from the scene of slaughter, In company with a band of Rome twenty Indian warriors. One of the men In company with Mr. I)amo wan Mr. Hoight, President of Cedar city. Mr. I lame sfikt they had beeu out to see to the burying of the dead ; but the dead were not buried. Krnm what Ineard, I believe the bodies were left lying nak-Hl open the ground, having been stripped of their clothing by the Indians These Indians had a two horse wagon, filled with tonne thing I could not see, as blankets were carefully spread over the top. Thn wagon was driven by a whito man, uid bosido him, there were two or three Indians in it Many of them had shawls, and bundles of women's clothes were tied to their isad lies. They wore also well supplied with guns or pistols, besides bows and arrows. The hindmost Indian* were driving several head of the emigrant's cattle. Mr. Iiame and Mr. Ilaight and their meu Deemed to be on the best of terms with tho Indians, and they were all in high spirits, as if they were mutually pleased with the accom plishment of some desired object. While in fan Barnardino, 1 heard many persons ex pros gratification at the. massacre. At the church services on Sunday Captain Hunt occupied the pulpit, and among other things, he said that the hand of the Lord was in it; "whether it was done by white or red skina, it was right ; the prophecies concerning Missouri were being fulfilled, and they would all be accomplished. Mr. Warn, in his statement, Kays that on his journey through the settlements, which was a week or ten days subsequent to the pa-mago of thn murdered train, he everywhere heard the same threats of vengeance against them for their boiKtcrousnoss and abuse of Mormons and Mnrmonmm, as was reported; and these threats nee mod U> be made with tho Intention of preparing the mind to expect a calamity, and also when the calamity occurred, it should appear to (Ml upon ti ansgressore as a matter of retribution. Mr. Warn hays, according to his memorandum: ? On the &th of September we eicauiped at Corn creek. Here 1 had conversation with the Indian Agent concerning tho poisoning of the ox. He said that six Indians had diod; that others were sick and would die. I'pon one of them the poison had worked out all over his breast, and ho was dead next morning, ax reported. Afterward I con versed with an Indian, said to be the war chief Ammon, who spoke good Knglisn. I inquired how many of hi* tribe had died t'rom eating the poisoned animal. Ho re plied not any, but some were sick. He did not attribute the sickness to poison, nor did ho give any reason for it. His manner and that of his people towards us was not only friendly but cordial; and he did yit mention the train which had been doomod. It utirTI the Mormon train there were encam|ied at this place two or three emigrant trains, amounting to fifteen or eighteen wagons, with whom the Indians were as friendly as with our selves." One reason that may be assigned for tho massacre of this train is, thin it was known to be in possession of con siderable valuable property, and this fad excited tho cu pidity of the Mormons. It was Mid that they had over four hundred head of stock, besides mules, kc. They were well supplied with arms and ammunition, an element ol' gain which enters largely fcitoall Mormon calculations. The train was composed of families who all seemed to he in good circumstances, and as they were moving to Call fornia, their outfit indicated that they might be in posses sion of considerable funds. The meu were very free in speaking ol the Mormons; their conduct was said to havo been reckless and they would commit little acts of vio lence for the purpose of provoking tho Saints. Keeling perfectly i-afe in their arms and numbers, they seemed to set at defiance all the (towers that could he brought against them. And they were not permitted to feel the dangers that surrounded them until they wero_ Cut off from all hope of relief. mohc ornuun o* tiik flaixp. A few days after the above meeting took place, Mr. Honca, of Arkansas, arrived at I/w Angeles from the plains. In the train in which ho came they were subject ed to constant and harru.ssing attacks from the Indians ever since they left Salt I*k? City. They wcro behind the train which had been so cruelly massacred at Santa Clara canon. Two of the men belonging to the train which Mr. Honeaaccompsnied were wounded in a tight with the Indians, and 3W head of cattle driven off. No one who reads tho statement given by Mr. Honea, says the I as Angeles Mar, >vui for a moment doubt the com plicity of the Mormon leaders in these scenes of crime and outrage. The immense sums paid to the interpreters, and their refusal to fulfil the terms of their contracts ? not to say what is very plainly charged against them by our in formant ? that they conspired with the Indians to commit the depredations and outrages complained of ? would alone convict them of a participation in these murderous as saults. From the statement published by Mr. Honea, wo ex tract the following ? With the exception of an attack by the Kappaho Indians, on the Arkansas river, on the 20th of June, on the com pany of Capt. Henry, of Texas, who lost 161 head of cot tie, nothing of interest occurred on the journey, nor did they perceive any symptoms of opposition , or of armed t anils, till they tame to Fort Hridgpr, id (Jtali Territory. Here they saw a large quantity of provisi-sui stored, a considerable number of Indians encamped all round the fort, and heard the people generally speaking of making preparhlons to go out and mtet General Harney. At Fort Bridger. was told by a merchant that at Fort .Supply over 400 Indians were encamped, awaiting orders to at tack the United States troops. About thirty miles trom Fort Bridger met three companies of men, generally mounted, and all well armed, having abumlance of bag gage, their wagon* being numbered in meases. ? nit ARMY OK UMOtVATIOV. Here had a conversation with one of the Mormon sol diers. an Englishman, who camped with our company, and over the camp fire became communicative. He re ferred in bitter term- to the treatment the Mormon* had received in Illinois and Missouri, reflected on tho injustice and tyranny of the people of tno Cnited States, and said that the time was oome to get even. He said they wero on their way to meet General Harney, to see what he was coming for. ? "If he was coming peaceably we will let him come; but if not, we will drive him back," were tho words used Another Mormon, named Killion an old mail who lives about seven miles from Salt lake City , spoke bitterly against the 1'mtod States, denounced Judge I>rum mond and all the federal ofliccrs. and rejoiced that tho time had come when the Saints would be avenged on their enemies ? that men were found who could face tho enemy, and that Harney, with his J, MX) meu. never would enter Salt lake City. Hi also stated that Go vernor lirigham Young had ordered the people to pre|wrn for war. that they should not sell emi grants anything; that they must lay up provisions; that the men and women must not dress up in store clothes any more, but that all must be saved to forward thenause of the church against the common enemy ; that the men must be content with buckskin' instead of broadcloth, and have plenty of guns and spimumtion. ww't a rati* oe iW['*rKxr>iptr*B.

Mr. Henea says that in coming into San Bornardmo, about fifteen miles tho other side of the sink of the Mo have river, he met the mail wagon for Salt lAkeCity, having a large quantity of pistols and ammunition. The driver wished to purchase arms from tho party, but they refused to sell. To give an idea of the fraud and extortion practised by the Mormons on emigrants, Mr. Honea states that their company paid to interpreters, si* in all the enormous sum ot' $1,816. The duty performed by tfieso guides and In terpreters was to conduct the company from Cedar City to Cottonwood Springs, a distance of not over three hundred miles; yet this contract was not fulfilled, although pay ment was made in advance. THE MdttXONti AND THE LATE MASSACRE. [From tho San iYanctfiro Herald, Nov. ft | Three emigrant families arrived yesterday in Sacra mcnto, by the Carson Valley ronte. They report, says the L'num, many sad evidences of outrage and murder at different points along the route, part cularly in the vicinity of Goose Creek. Near this creek thoir attention was at tracted by the apnearance of a human foot, protrudiug from the ground, and on examining the spot the remains of three murdered men were found buried only three or four inches below the surface. I'jkjii another grave them lay two dogs, alive but much emaciated , and to per tinacious in retaming their lonely resting place that u > effort could entice or drive them from the sjot. Their master was, most probably, the occupant of that grave, and their presence there, under such circamstances, was a touching exhibition of canine instinct, and devotion. A few miles further on, they came upon ano ther scene of murder, where upou the ground were strewn a few bones, and also knots of long glossy hair, torn from the bead of some ill fated woman Near by were the remains of three heud of cattle, with the arrows still sticking in them. Reports brought by these families tend strongly to cor roborate tho suspicion already existing against the Mor mons as the instigators, if not tho perpetrators, of the re cent wholesale massacre of immigrants at Santa Clara canon. Mr. Pierce, who camo l>y way of Salt Lake, and joined the other two families at the Sink of the Humboldt, rtports some fivo hundred Indians encamped near Salt I -ake, who, as be learned from Uie Mormon.- , were retain ed as allien to operate against tho troopfc sent out by tho government. He was also assured that these Indians bad been instructed nut to molest the emigration this year, as preparations were not sulliciently complete to enable the Mormons to make a stand against the I'nlted States. In the city itsoll large crowds of Mormons were nightly praj'tisiug military drill, and there was every evidence of energetic pre|iarationn for some groat even*. Before his family left Salt I*ke vague declara tions of a threatening character were made, to the etf'ct that, next year, "the overland emigrants must look out;" ami it was even insinuated that the last trains this year might be destroyed. From Ac Mormon train which re cently left Carson Valley, and which these families met on the way. similar statements were vaguely communi cated. one Mot men woman even going so far as U> con gratulate an old lady in one af these families u|Nin her safe arrival so near her destination, and assuring her that '?the last trains of this year would not get through *o* well, for they were to be cut off." We give these state ments as we received them from members of these fami lies, and, admitting their correctness, which we have no reason to doubt, they certainly will go far to confirm a terrible suspicion. [From the Alta California, Nov. fi.] The most important items of news by this steamer is the display before the public of a large amount of evi dence, going to k how that the party of one hundred and eighteen immigrants, massacred in the southern part of Utah, while on their way to California ? news of which occurrence was sent from here by the lost mail? wore murdered by Mormons. Mr. George Powers arrived a few days since at Ixw Angeles, from Salt Lake, ami re ports having heard many Mormons threaten to kill (Jen tiles passing through their country. He met a mixed party of Mormons and Indians going toward a Mormon settle ment from the scene of the massacre, and they had in possession bundles of clothing and other articles, appa rently th? spoil of the murdered; and the whole party appeared to be on very friendly terms with one another, and to be in high spirits. This Mr. Powers also slates that in San Bernardino he heard Captain Hunt, a man ot authority among the Mormous there, say he was glad i or the massacre, and believed that the hand of Uie 1 />rd was in it, whether it was done by the whites or tho rod kins. P. M. Warn, of Genesee county , New York, who ? ame through about the same time with Mr. Powers, be levee : Imj, fiinn numerous facts otwierved by him, that the Moruxtus are gwlllv of the bloody crime. Messrs. Ab bolt and Fine, two gentlemen who have lately been at Andres, from the Humboldt river, report great hostility on tho part of the Mormons towards the immigrants oom ing to California by the South Pass, and great friendship with the Indians, who had made attacks on immigrants. Both Mr. Abbott and Mr. Fine know of cases where trains were attacked in the Mormon country, by Indians led on by numerous white men, supposed to be Mormons. Mr. Abbott ssys five hundred immigrants have been killed this year "on the road between Salt I Ake and (California by Indians and Mormous, but this ettiiuate is certainly very much exaggerated. News from Canon Valley. By a telegraphic dispatch to the Stwram'ufi ITni/m, dated Placerville, (ictober 18. we have the following late and exciting intelligence from Carson Valley:? Crautlall's >tage arrived yesterday evening at half past two o'clock, w th a full complement of pass->ngeri, mail anil express matter. From W. W. Smith, who came passenger, we learn that an express mersenger, Wm More head, arrived at Genoa five minutes previous to the leaving ot the stage, with news from Honey lake Valley. A large number of Pitt Kiver Indians came into the Valley, joined with tho Wa.-hoes, and commenced steal - Ing'stock. vegetables and other provisions Their numbers are so great that the whites are destitute of the means of protection, and fear for their Mfac, Mr. Moreland asks aid from the Superintendent of Indian Aflsirs in California immediately. ?nd w.irns parties Intend ing to trove into the Valley with :annlies this winter not to risk their lives by to doing. The delegate n appointed from Vlnnoy lake Valley to attend the meeting at Genoa, on Wednesday last, wore prevented from coming by the Indian difficulties. Mr. Moreliesd left at a late hour on Tuesdsy night, and rode through to Washoe Valley without baiting. Kirk's train arrived here this evening. Proponed Vw Territory. [From the San Fraaciam llerald, Nov. 6.) Some two months since the residents of Carson Valley heM a public, meeting, at which they resolved to memo rlsllre Congress for the erection of anew Territory ea-t ot the Sierra Nevada, including that and several other vaUeys at the base of tli? mountains, On the 8d Inst , the residents of Honey Iske Valley held * meotingand "nl'irs ed this actiou of their Carson Valley brethren. This design Is to include in this new Territory the gre a basin between the Goose Creek range of mountains on the ea?t , and the Sierra Nevada on the west and iH>tw>en the Ore gon and ('tali line on the north, and the Colorado river on the south. Both the meetings referred to elr< ted Judge J. M Crane their delegate to lay the subject before (Vwgress. The Honey Ijike Valley people resolved that if any attempt be made to bring th- m under the jurisdiction of California, before Uie boundary line between this State and I'tah has been officially surveyed, they will resist it, with alt the power they can command. A committee liaa been ap pointed to ask the legislature of CalifoanM to cede and transfer all the State * interest to all lands lying east of the main Sierra Nevada to the I'nlted Slates government so that iheirs may be established on the other sido. lilrtl&a, MarrlifN and Dtithi.
