[From the St. Louis Kepublk-an, Sept a ] A letter trom Mr. N ( olburn, our correspondent at Santa Fe, announces his arrival at Independence, in this State, on Thursday last, in twentjr-foui and a half days from Sunta Fe. This journey eclipses in speed any otlser ever performed between the two points, and shows that very soon it will l>? stripped ol even the character of novelty. From the letter of Mr. C'olburn, we gather many fact* of interest to our readers, which are here arrange 1 Mr. Colburn left Santa Fe on the 3d of August. There were then only 4.:o Mexican soldiers stationed in Santa r?. wuk uiu .<itLiu>i4<io-< niuurn ni'iv mey u'j'i I ,in/u mtfn ready to march at a moment'* warning to meet (>?neral Kearney, and - 000 were expee'ed fiom the lowor country How ur this expectation may he realized, may bo judged of from the fact, that Mr. Kennedy, who had just a nvod fiom Snnora, reported that they had there only S0O soldiers 300at I hihnahua, and 40 at K.l I'asso. Whon Mr. C. left Suit# Ke, nothing had been heard of Cien. Kearney's movements tor fifteen dajs previous It wax not theii known that lien. Wool wn movinir against Chihuahua. About two huadred miles on his route home, he met with ei(?ht Mexican dragoon* who had been watching the movements of tho American force* uuuer Ueneiai Kearney They said they had not seen the troops, although they had been in sight of Bent's Kort, and to the Simerone Mr. Colhurn reached the crossing of the Arkansas in ten day*, being the quickest trip ever mode to that point in wagons He found grass and waU r scarce. Hp there met i :apt?tn Worcester, of the United States Artillery', T. Caldwoll and Charles Bent, only tun days from Independence, and sent by them to lien. Kearney alt tho uews ol which he was in possession. Frem this party, he heard of tho murder, uu the evening before, of Mr. W. Z. JSwan, ot Northampton, Massachusetts. Hewasretuming.it is stated, from Kort llent. in company with Ma or u. Clark, and whs snot ftom his horse, when within soventy-fire yards of their camp, by Indians On tho IBtli, he mot Mr. Turlej's company of three wagons, for Taos, aud also forty-three government wagons, and;S4 men They were lying by for repairs I'he} hail lost fifteen yoke of oxen many of the men wete sick, and they only had two rounds of ammunition No guard could be placed at night, and tney had nothing i with which to protect themselves when hunting their | oxen t'tio luJitiHS were attacking some of the companies almost every ni<ht. This detachment of wagons was then sixteen days behind the army, which Mr. C. learned, was subsisting on half a ration of bread and meat, with neither sugar nor coffee. Ho expresses the opinion, that one hundred Mexican soldiers could capture all the supplies of governmont stores from the cotton wood to Kent's Fort, if they only knew their oxposed situation It was ul o stated that the dragoons had only fifteeu rounds of ammunition with them. Mr. C. says that the Indians wore in Santa Ke, ode ting their services to (ton. Armijo, on condition that be should let them have the spoils which they might take from the Americans, but that he had refused tu accept the proposition. If he hat! i accoded to it, the army might possibly have been defeat ed, or their supplies cut off, which would have caused Kicat distre-s. .Major Claik and himself gave the men at) the powder which they could spare, and left lhem. On the 15th, he met twenty two government wagons, in chaige ol Mr Campbell and Mr. Coons, of St. Louis He leained fiom them that their camp had been attacked ou the night previous, and that they had killed one Indian and wounded another. That night his camp uas afucked at Coon Creek, and an attempt made to run off Iih stock. On the 16th he met sixty wagons, loaded with raorchandize, at Pawnee Fork, belonging to Armijo, Magoffin, and others. At this (mint, he overtook ten wagons, on their return from Beat's t ort. On the 17th. at low Cteek. met Messrs. Barnes and Allen, with thirty-ono government wagons nnd fortythree men. Ilia cump mw again attacked. and an attempt uimle to drive olf the animnls. The guard fired on the Indians, but they contrived to steal three of Major Claik'i mules, which caused some delay. About 3 o'clock in the morning, they heard a firing of musketry, which they afterwards learned was from Mr Horner's company of eignteen wagons, at Owl Creek. Their camp h id been attacked by a l.irfe body of Indians, and : they weie almost without powder. Major Clark gave I them all he could xparo. At Little Arkxnsas River he met forty-sii wagons belonging to Algueir and Paris, the I lat'er in chaige of Messrs Htillman. Waldo, and Nol.iml. Two ot their wagon* hud been struck by lightj ning. and one man was slightly injured. | On Ue IBth, m<>t Doyle and Uarvey'i six wagons, with good* for tho Indian tra<!e, unJ twenty-fiv" wugons with siores for the U. Atmy. On the 2id, met Md-'nulley and Randford's wagon* : wi'h merchandize; and also two companies of Price's regiment, one ot them under (.'apt. Oiddings, at Cotton Wood, with six buggage wagons. On the '-J3J met two companies of same regiment at Council (irove, under command of Capts. McMillen and Ilorinn, and also forty-three wagons loaded with merchandize, belonging to K. Gentry. Same day met a command of twelve men and lour howitzers. On the 24th, met Major Hpalding, Assistant Paymaster, with twelve wagons and two pieces of artillery "twentyfour pounders. Met, also, three companies of Price's legiment, under command of Capts. Henley, Robinson and Hollo way, with a train of nineteen wagons; and the five companies composing the battalion of Mermon infantry, ami some emigrant* to Calilornia. On the -Jdth, met seven wagons belonging to Tharp andl.?e, with merchai diz.e lor tne mountains and Taos, at Switzer's ('reek. Same day, met Lieut. Col Mitchell ,.n i V,oi.tr U/olfcor P ., ... ...... 1 .k- i-i panics ol Price'* legiment, together with Col. Price, at Kock Creek. On tho 2<tth, met Armljo, with thirteen wagon* loaded with merchandize, at Hickory Point Lieut. Oxley wm at the same place, on hi* route, having been delayed by a trill from hit hor?e Met, alio, thirty-one wagon* for U- 8. A., in charge of Thompton. On the 37th. before arriving at Independence, met four wagons belonging to Miller and Read, and Mr. A. Arnujo, who hail b< en detauicl by sicknesa, aud wm then on hi* rou'e to Santa Ke. Mr Colburn repr*entts trade a* being extremely dull at S.inta he. 'I lit re waa a heavy storm of mow in the mountain* on the 15th of June, and on the 10th of July lie caw latge hank* of mow. On the 34thof June, there wa* a tremendous hail *torm on the St. ditties ; some ot the atones mjaaured nine inche*. and he *aw one houae which hat' holea cut through the roof by it. The corn crop wa* very poor. Mr C. expresses the opinion. th?t the horses of the mounted men must sutler aeverely during the wiuter, a* there wa* but little surplus grain in the countrj . probably not exceeding eight thousand bushels of wheat, and no coru. 1 he Navajo Indian* wete committing depredation* on the Mexicans.

The Anti-Mormons have six pieces of cannon, aud have received powder ' and ball to put them in actual use I am told by thoie who pretend to know, that the Anti-Mormons are going to make this the final struggle, and if they fail, to leave the countrv. They are receiving large additions to their numbers from the country. 1 have no means of ascertaining what they ate doing at Nauvoo but presume they are eqaally active. They sent a committee to the governor, and it is said that he has ordered an officer and ten men into the cvuuty, to observe the movements of both parties, with instructions to call out assistance in case either party violate the law. The Anti-Mormons say that their movements will be directed by the right sort of men this time. On Union Srr.?mt?

That may be especially so, now, when the war spirit appears to be up, and all, of all classes and grades, appear to be full of " blood and thuuder " Well, I suppose you are familiar with the anti-Mormon war, which bag been raging in Hancock oountv, Illinoii, for the last eight or twelve months. Aa you know, an armistice, iome time lait fall, was entered into between the two " high contracting parties," the Mormons and anti-Mormons, negotiated, on the one aide, by the " elders" of the " Latter-day Saints." and sundry high political characters of both political parties on the other, in which it was stipulated and agreed that the Mormons should leave Nauvoo, the Mecca of this devoted, yet deluded people. anil Hancock county, and Illinois generally . early last spring. Upon these articles being signed. the sound of war died a way, a< it seenM, like a spent volcani; hut all the while there was accitmulating material, within the wo-nb of the then future, for an explosion more violent, mora fearful, and at oca disgraceful than the fir?t. At the time above alluded to. lsst fall, the Mormons in and about the c ty numbered IJ 00J strong; and here, it may be proper to add. for the information of yotir read ers, that a Wrie majority of them being democrats, the whig* of Hancock county became clamorous for thair expulsion; first, in hop** the county mould thereby become whig; and socoudty. in hope* that a drain so large might materially, or wholly change the politic* of the Stitiv However, as soou as the above stipulation had been made, the Mormons, I have no doubt in good faith, betook themselves to mailing ready fur their departure Whoever could, sold their property and their effects ; some at a greater, some at a less cactifice and many almost gave away their property, to get in return a team or wagon, and oxen or horses, sudloSently capaciou- to take them away. Before the time arrived at or before which they were to start, something like fire thousand j or six thousand had crossed the Mississippi, with comparatively nothing but heads of families and their chil dren, with the atoresaid teams, and not half provisions enough to last them over the Stony mountains whither they were tending; and a great majority of these had left without disposing of their real estate. Before the time came round, however, it became evident to all, that thousands of them would not get away, and to the sober, it was quite as evident they could not. The old citizens were relentless, and began to make preparation! to expel them the city. And here, for want of time a'ul spaed, 1 muit pass over a long and intereating portio> of their hUtory, simply taying, that those who had remained became so alarmed, that some fled with nothing, scarcely, but what Ood and nature had given them, and dwelt in tents and covered wagons, like Israel in the wlldernuss, with this difference ?that while Ood presided over the destiny of the latter and defended them, He apparently, ami certainly man, beast and the elements, were pursing.with scorpion lath, these poor, wretched, religious maniacs. Affairs Anally camo to such a crisis, that property, and more purlieularly real estato, could be bought for a song?for an ox wagon and four oxen, worth a hundred dollars oi moro, one could, and very frequently did, buy property which before tne Vlormon war would have fetched one thousand dollars in cash. This soon became noised abroad, and there was a rush made for Nauvoo by persons of limited means, to buy property. That you may have the facta, 1 will state here that these new purchasers were composed of old Mormons, who had, up to that time, not been known in Hancock county ; another clasa composed of dlnhoneat rowdies, and anO'.her who were, and now are, honest men. There is not much doubt, however, but a large majority of those who have purchased at the aforesaid reduced rates, are Mormons, some more and some less tinctured with Joe Mmith-ism. Yet It is quite certain, a set of men took the place of those who had left, more shrewd, more bold, more determined, and toerefore better calculated to ce suimntite evil practices. This class ot men took ta tliemstlves the name of the'new settlers," and are now known by that appellation. Under their auspirea a palter was started, the Hancock ??(/*, conducted With considerable ability by one Dr. Ma'.lack, who ia now dead. As you have been apprised, a " guerilla war" has been raging in this reason, and the " new settlers" have carried it into Africa, making arrests of the " regulators'' to the astonishment and ditmay of the old citizen*? whether for good or for evil, I cannot say, as the two parties differ as to motives. The old citizens complain cd of certain persons of Nauvoo, and warrants were put into the hands of the ofticcr to arrest them, but resistance was made by the new settlers, backed up by the remnant of the old Mormons. So the llareup I am about to give you an account of. arose more immediately on account of this fact. The officer who had been resisted, called upon.the county for apotte comilatui, alleging the object to be merely to execute bit write, while the authorities of the Holy City, chII upon ail of Nauvoo to mm in delence 01 the city, alleging the object of the other party to be to burn Nuuvoo, and expell it* inhabitant*. Thus being convertant of the itate of the partiea, you can better hpprcciale the reat of the narrative. The call of the officer ran like wildfire all over, and out of Hancock, the farmer laid aiide his plough, the mechanic hi* tool*, the lawyer hi* pen.aod the women their ipinning wheel*. There wan an object lacking in both partie*, at m* and ammunition. But the partie* dispersed to hunt up theso, and you would frequently find in the same town, Mormon* and Anti-Mormon*, new settlers and old, enquiring for arm* and ammunition. On Saturday la*t, Builington. Fort Madison, Keo Kuk, and the other large town* on the river, war* canvassed, gun* obtained, washed out, acouted up, and carried away by both partie* preparatory to the conflict, which wa* expected to come off" on the firit of thi* week. Their were deliberate about it, and would coolly invite persons to come and look on to *ee the fight. A building wa* broken open nt Quincy, in the night, the State ordnance taken, and hauled to Carthage in open daylight. On each tide there are *ix piece* ot cannon, beside* both are armed to the hilt with muakets, pi-toll, aide arms, and dirks. Yesterday, which was Thursday, there wore assembled i>00 mt-n ut Carthage, and about 8 )0 at La Harpe, all AntiviotmoDn. All the week Nauvuo has been under martial low, the whole city, old and new settlers, Mormons mixI nil. doing military duty * legularly us though they wero forces ut the I uited h atea. And what is astonishihg, and shows the dea,itr?tion of the parties, is, there is under arms, in active drill, a.id armed to the teeth, a com puny of women, eighty strung, who are in umtorin. and who, if an attack is made U| on the sacred city, are to be placed in the ft out ranks, each one being sworn to lie on the giouud before the Anti's ahall enter the city. While this is a desperate move, it i* alto artlully devised, a* you >ee, if eighty of the lair should he (hot I down bv men. the inevitable tendency would be to raise a flood t'iue of sympathy lor ttie delendera ol Nauvoo.

Thia wa? putting the Mauvooitei just where they wanted to be. All were at the major's service, so that if any conflict enauad, the demi-.Viormotis, for *uch we conaider the prbaent population of Mativoo, would have the law on their slue, w tula the anti'a would have no excuse to enter now, with an aimed lorce, under the pietext of arraating, and would have to do it, if at all, in violation not only of the itatute, but the common law, and the expresa order of the governor and hi* officer in command at Nauvoo. The commanding officer sent the governor* proclamation to the antra beau quar. ten, by wiihh he had been appointed, Ike ; but the anti'a heeded It not, but abuaed the mestengere. and *ant them | away, not exactly " half dead," but frightened out of their sense*.

What will come out of it, I cannot tell.

Sutherland?We' don't admit that to be a true designation of him. We only gave it to him for the convenience of having the writ truly and regularly served, but we do not acknowledge him as a Colonel. Couht?a man who looks at his designation in your petition, and then at the writ and return, and compares them all together, must be as blind as a cat if he does not perceive the connection. Uenl. Sutherland?i am neither deaf or blind, and I dout perceive tho connection. Here General Sutherland read u very voluminous paper denying tho legality of the return. The following is a synopsis of it:? 1st Thut it was illegal, because the regiment was organised by tho Governor of the Slate of New Vork, and not the President of the United States. 'id. Because the Governor istued commissions without authority. 8d Because undar tho militia law the officer* should be olected. 4th That there i? no law of the Sta!e of New York authorising the governor to issue commissions to voluu teers for the Uimed States. 6th That the articles of war, and tho rules and regit lation* of the arin\ , a* to th? enlistment of the men, and tho formation of the regiment have not been complied with; that the legimen; wa< erroneously organised, and the oath required to be tak>>n by Cook was not administered by tho person legally authorised to administei the same.

And lastly, that by varioui fraudulent representatioas, the laid Cook was induced to enlist.
