FROM THE PLAINS.—Mr. Robert Wilson, of this place, and several others, have just returned from the Plains. They have been out as far as Fort Hall. They bring no news of Importance, excepting some intelligence from the Mormon settlement. Mr. Wilson met with Mr. Pomeroy (from Lex-ington, Missouri) at Fort Hall, and from him he learned the particulars of the recent high handed and lawless acts of the inhabitants of the Salt Lake valley, in arresting and trying ci-tizens from the States upon a charge of participation in the expulsion of the Mormons from Missouri and Illinois. The Mormons had arrested and tried Mr. Pomeroy, Gen. Wilson, United States agent, and a number of others, and they only released them upon the production of satisfactory proof of their innocence. They had also levied a duty of fifty per cent, upon such articles of merchandise as were taken into their city. Mr. Wilson also learned that the Mormons were very much displeased at the Government stationing troops so near them.—Weston (Mo.) Reporter.
