MORMON AFFAIRS.—We learn that the first expedi- tion of the Saints for the Rocky Mountains, will take up its line of march m about three weeks. This first company will consist of about fifty men, with a suffi-cient number of teams, drawn by good horses, to con-vey the farming utensils, provender, &c., they may need. They will load with grain, at the last settle-ment, and push their horses through as fast as pos-sible, until they reach the base of the mountains, which they say they can do by the time grass is fairly up. Here they will halt and commence farming operations They will put in as large a crop as possible, and remain until the summer emigrants come up. The object of this expedition is to raise something for the summer emi-grants to recruit on, while on their journey.
We learn that on Monday last a very serious row oc-curred in Nauvoo, between the followers of the Twelve and those of the Wisconsin Prophet.
As our readers are already informed, the new Pro-phet has made considerable inroads into the church at Nauvoo. Lately he obtained a new revelation in rela-tion to the succession, and sent some messengers to the Holy City to read it to the people. This they attempt-ed on Monday last, but were surrounded by a mob who attempted to drive them from the city. Whereupon a row ensued, in which clubs were used freely. The Twelveites gained the victory and drove their oppo-nents from, the ground. We look with anxiety for fur-ther particulars. —Warsaw Stg., Jan. 20,
