By Catharine Paddock PhD The ancestors of Native American populations from the tip of Chile in the south to Canada in the north, migrated from Asia in at least three waves, according to a new international study published online in Nature this week that involved over 60 investigators in 11 countries in the Americas, plus four in Europe, and Russia. In what they describe as the most comprehensive survey of genetic diversity in Native Americans so far, the researchers studied variation in Native American DNA sequences. They found that while most Native American populations descend primarily from one migration, there were two later ones that also made a significant genetic contribution.
From the Washington Republic. The Mormons of Deseret. The readers of this paper have doubtless noticed, in the Congressional proceedingsthe presentation in the Senate on Monday last, of a memorial of Wm.
Now, in relation to this matter, it is not improbable that these charges are exagerated and untrue, and such as could not stand the test of calm judicial investigation. We have no sympathies or regards for this Mormon people; but, judging from what we have formerly heard and latterly known of them, we deem these accusations to be entirely absurd and impossible.
In the first place, if we remember aright, this Wm. Smith, the first petitioner, is a brother of the celebrated Joseph Smith, who originally presided over the Mormons. But, as we have been informed, Depression and mormon women as he was a brother of one who was highly cherished among them, they consented to afford him protection and sustenance for a time; but his conduct at length becoming, as they allege, more and more dissolute, he was expelled from the pale of their church.
It will be recollected, when the Mormons were on their way to the far west, fleeing from the persecutions which they had suffered in Illinois and Missouri, overtures were made to them by the United States officers, under instructions from our government, inviting them to join in the hostilities which were going to be waged against the Mexican republic.
Would this have been the case had they sworn to avenge their wrongs against the government and people of the United States? We find them now knocking at our doors for admission into our Union, at a time when another populous and less remote community are in no hurry for such a consummation.
Does this look like settled hostility to the United States? The objections urged against this people on the score of their grasping for territory, and their immoral practices, we are inclined to believe, are of an equally fragile tenure. With Texas and California claiming an area much larger than they have actually occupied, it is not surprising that Deseret should do the same.
We believe after all, that the people of Deseret will be willing to take such limits as Congress may choose to assign to them. Can the same be said of other States which have applied for admission or been received into the Union?
As to the polygamy charged against this people, we consider it almost too absurd to merit notice. That a people, the principal portion of whom have been born and brought up in the United States, and the next largest [part of whom ] the constitution under which they ask admission as a state, than which we have not seen one more lucid or better arranged in any of the states of this Union.
In some years this newspaper carried a masthead which read "Geauga Republic. Sandusky, Ohio, Thursday, January 17, Kinkead, of this city, arrived here a day or two since from the Salt Lake Valley. He left that Valley, in company with thirty-five others, on the 19th October.
Of this number some twenty-five were Mormon preachers, sent out by the Church to preach their faith in various quarters of the world. We learn from Mr. Kinkead, that the Mormon colony at the Valley of the Salt Lake was in a prosperous and happy condition.
The crops had been abundant, and they had carried on an excellent traffic with the emigrants, receiving from them many articles of which they stood in need, and supplying them with various articles of produce.
The Mormons uniformly treated the emigrants in a hospitable manner. Kinkead contradicts, as we supposed would be the case, the report of difficulties between the Mormons and Mr. Pomeroy, of Lexington, and Gen.
Wilson, growing out of old feuds between the Missourians and Mormons. It is probable that the report had its origin in difficulties between Mr.
Pomeroy and his teamsters, who were discharged from his employ at Salt Lake City. They made charges against him, and he demanded an investigation. A complete examination was had before the Court in the Mormon Church, and the result was a full acquittal of all charges against him.
Stansbury was prosecuting his surveys, and met with every assistance from the Mormons. He will make a complete survey of the Salt Lake, and of the whole country around it; and his report, it is believed, will possess great interest.
All persons offering merchandise for sale at Salt Lake City are required to take out license -- that on liquors amounts to fifty per cent, on the original cost, and was really intended to prohibit the sale altogether.
In coming in, the company first met with snow about a hundred miles the other side of Fort Kearny, and afterward it covered the ground from six to eighteen inches. Wagons were abandoned on the plains, and many of the teamsters were frost bitten.
So suddenly was the fire brought upon the encampment, by a change of the wind, that head of cattle were burned to death or died very soon afterwards.

Blacks and the Priesthood. It is a historical truth that until , Latter-day Saints' ecclesiastical policy prohibited black men from being ordained to the priesthood. When the Mormon Church left Kirtland, in Lake county, for Nauvoo, Iliinois, there were some members who refused to follow.
They repudiated the double-wife doctrine and said they would stay in Kirtland, faithful Mormons in all other respects.
