THE MORMON WAR ENDED. We learn from the St. Louis Republican of the 1st inst, that the threatened civil commotion in Missouri, between the Mormons and some of the citizens, is ended. The Republican says:—The war, which has kept a large portion of our citizens in an excitement for the last thirty days, is now at an end in every thing, except paying the piper, which the people have yet to do. The war, it is estimated, will cost the State at least fifty or sixty thousand dollars. We are told that the whole was easily arranged by General Atchison, in the following manner. General A. who, by the way has the confidence of the Mormons to a very great degree, and is deserving of general respect, with about two hun-dred select men, in the character of conservators of the peace, repaired to Far West, where he held a conference with the leading Mormons, and was assured by them that every disposition was entertained, on their part to abide by the laws. They stated their willingness to submit to the judicial decisions of the country and claimed nothing but the protection of the laws. A full investigation by Gen-eral A. of the whole matter satisfied him that the Mormons were the injured party, and that the statements of Justice Black and others, of the Mormons threats and attempts to force persons to sign a paper, and to swear allegiance to Jo Smith, were entirely false and groundless. General A. easily succeeded, after learning the whole facts, in re-storing peace and quiet to the country, and in dispersing all the armed forces in the neighborhood. These deluded fanatics, however false and pernicious may be their religious principles, have appeared heretofore to be harmless—and we are not surprised that upon inves-tigation, it turns out that they have been the "injured par-ty."
