ACQUITTAL OF THE MORMONS.—The telegraph brings in-telligence that James J. Strang, the self-styled "King of the Earth," and the rest of the Beaver Island Mormons, who were indicted with him for obstructing the United States mail and other offences, have been promptly acquitted. The jury, probably, gave no credence to the witnesses for the prosecu-tion, who were chiefly Mormon seceders, and personal ene-mies of the accused. The parties, however, still remain under indictment for depredations upon Government lands, and for making counterfeit coin of the United States, upon which indictment they will be tried at the Autumn term, and, in the mean time, the prisoners will be at large upon bail.
