THE TEMPLE AT NAUVOO.—We are gratified to learn that there is a prospect of converting the Temple, recently erected at Nauvoo by the Mormons, to a useful and most charitable purpose. A wealthy gentleman from the South arrived here a few days since, en route to purchase the Temple, if it can be bought for a reasonable price. His object we understand, is to convert the Temple into an asylum for destitute widows and females, and to purchase lands and town lots, and endow it out of the rents of them. The scheme is not only a magnificent one, but is conceived in a spirit of liberality and munificence which should hand the benefactor's name to the latest posterity. The author of this liberal proposition, we un-derstand, is a bachelor far advanced in life. If he is successful in his project, he will con-tribute much to the improvement and develope-ment of that section of our country. We hope, for the cause of humanity, that he may be successful.—St. Louis Republican.
