Warsaw, June 27th 1644.
It seems that the circumstances attending the
killing of the Mormon Prophet and his brother
Hiram, are as follows On yoeterday, Gov. Ford,
left Carthago with about 120 soldiers for the pur
pose of taking possession of the "Nauvoo Legion"
and their arms. They arrived at Nauvoo about
, noon, and called for the assembling of the Legion.

accompanied Gov. Ford to Nuoyoo.
The Governor finding all quiet, left Nauvoo
about 5 o'clock P. M., with a company of 60 men
for the purpose of encamping about seven miles
from the city.
At about the same time that Governor Ford left
Nauvoo, the Propltet and his brother were killed at
Carthage, under the t following circumstances, as
near as we can ascertain Ahem:

on a charge of treason. Thu jail was strongly

A mormon attempted to rush by ug ! 'd• guard for
the purpose of forcing his way into thi jail. He

the jail. Joe and his' Mormon fellow prisoners it

commenced firing upon the guard within. Ho

There our intelligence ends—what took place
after this, God only knows. Mormons imme

terminate the Governor and his small knee.
The Boreas brought down most of the women

Our citizens were aroused this morning by the
ringing of bells mid a call to arms. Our three in

There Aa no knowing where this dreadful affair

adopted, and public meetings have been culled and
held for the purpose of expressing opinions on the
State trials, and on the incarceration of the mar

cities. These contributions have greatly increased
