The U.S. iron stm. MICHIGAN left yesterday afternoon from Beaver Island, having on board the U.S. District Attorney, Geo. C. Bates, and Marshal Knox with 5 deputies. They go up to arrest a number of Mormons on the Island, who are charged with obstructing the U.S. mail, bogus making, trespassing upon the public lands, &c., &c. It would seem very strange if the Mormons did not trespass upon Uncle Sam's farm, for all the neighbors within many miles are setting the example.
