The Mormons moved their cart, when the wagon was also moved. One of the Mormons began to manifest symptoms of uneasiness, got out of the cart and ran off. The people chased him, caught him in Whiteworth Road, brought him back and placed him again in the cart, and compelled the whole lot to listen to Mr. HAWTHORNTHWAITES’s expositions on the abominations of Mormonism. During the proceedings the people became excited and demonstrated their abhorrence of Mormonism by blows and kicks, and one or two gentlemen who were mistaken for Mormons were handled rather roughly. It would seem from the forgoing, that our brethren on the other side of the water are beginning to understand the real nature of this imposture, and to treat it and its advocates accordingly. The iniquities of this system cannot be too thoroughly exposed.
