WARLIKE ATTITUDE OF THE MORMONS.
Captain Van Vliet, Quarter-master of the Utah Expe-dition, has just returned from Utah, and reports that Brigham Young and his followers are prepared to resist the United States forces to the last of their strength; and in the event of their discomfiture, to destroy every tree and house in Utah, and seek another home elsewhere. Captain Van Vliet was unable to purchase supplies in Utah. Elder Heber Kimball made a speech, on August 30th, expressive of similar sentiments; and some re-marks of Brigham Young, in the same strain, are to be found in the Mormon papers. No one believes that these threats are anything but braggadocio. The United States troops are to winter 130 miles from Salt Lake, at Fort Bridger.
