Brother Glover has had some conversation today with a Baneemyite. He was able to show the folly of his faith in such a doctrine; but like all other apostates he cherished his errors, although he cannot sustain them either by reason or revelation. They believe that all the Revelations which were given through the Prophet Joseph to the day of his death are true and binding upon this generation. They are decidedly opposed to the plurality; (what will they do with the revelation of July 12, 18437). They believe that the President Brigham Young, and the Patriarch are the two horns of the beast. They believe in three orders of Priesthood; and that Baneemy is the man to gather the armies of Israel and redeem Zion, or Jackson County, Missouri. Charles B. Thompson is evidently Baneemy altho' they say it has not been told who Baneemy is.
