MORMON PETITION.—In the Connecticut Legisla-ture on Saturday, says the Hartford Courant, a message was received from His Excellency the Governor, accompanied by a communication from Brigham Young and others, "a Committee of the Latter Day Saints" at Nauvoo—otherwise called Mormons, asking for an Asylum in Connecticut, or for aid in obtaining one elsewhere. They claim to be law-preserving citizens," and say Illinois has treated them as bad as Missouri. The former "pounced upon their patriarch and their prophet, repealed their chartered rights, &c. They say that many citizens of Connecticut are among them—and request the Governor to convene a special session of the Le-gislature to grant them an asylum, and to aid in establishing ing a Colony of "Latter Day Saints in Oregon." The mes-sage was referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations.
