More outcries have been raised against Mormon outrages. In a letter just received at St. Louis by Maj. Vasquez, from his partner at a trading post on Green River, it is stated that a Mormon named Moore settled at that spot, established a ferry across Green River, and said that he was authorized to say, by Brigham Young, that any American who should attempt to establish a ferry on Green River, would be fined by him (Young) one thousand dollars. We also learn that Gov. Young insists that, after he has placed whomsoever he will at the ferry, he then demands and will enforce, the collection of 10 per cent on all monies collected; which monies are to go for the benefit of the Mormons.
