MORMONISM IN THE CITY EXPLODED. – We have already mentioned the demise of the Mormon newspaper published in this City. The Church has also been suspended. A considerable number of the “Saints” gathered together yesterday to attend the usual Sunday service at the accustomed place in Broome-street, -- but the doors were closed and the proprietor of the hall informed the crowd that there would be no more preaching there. The causes of this sudden and singular movement were freely canvassed in conversation at the door, but no light whatever was thrown upon the subject. The Church evidently does not thrive in this region.
