The front page article is headed: "The Mormon Difficulties" which begins: "The St. Louis New Era thinks the Mormon war at an end...the Mormons are deeply wounded at the death of their leader and look for vengeance in some form..." with a bit more. 
The article continues with a description of Nauvoo, Illinois, which begins: "They have built up a considerable town in a very brief period. They claim a population in the city of about 15,0000...The buildings are scattered over a wide space..." with more.  
At the bottom of page 3 is an article headed: "The Mormon Temple" which is very descriptive of their newly built temple at Nauvoo, Illinois. An early account.
Four pages, some foxing to the front page, nice condition.
