SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 9.— The great Mor- mon Conference has just ended. BRIGHAM YOUNG resigned yesterday his offices of Trustee in Trust of the Church and Presi- dent of the Perpetual Fund. He gave as reasons that he was getting oid and wanted to travel among the Saints, and did not wish to he harrasscd with the vexatious law suits now threatened by apostates. He was furious against the courts. He was determined to resist every encroachment, and would destroy and burn everything, if need be, rather than submit to persecution.
SMITH & WELLS, his counsellors, resigned their offices to travel with him. The three are now only presidents of the church. These are great changes. The new trustee has not yet been made.
The Confeaence closed with BRIGHAM mildly preaching to the living to be baptized for the dead.
A good deal of excitement prevails in the city on many other matters.
