ARRIVALS:—Elder Benjamin Matthews, late missionary to the Southern States from San Bernardino, arrived on the 19th inst. with six families from Mississippi. These are the first of this season's immigration, and have made remarkably good time.
Elder George R Grant and a small company lately came in from the settlement on Salmon river. They started on the 29th of June, leaving all peaceful and well. Col. Thos. S. Smith and company were met 125 miles this side of the settlement, all well. Br. Grant reached home on the 12th inst., and reports that grasshoppers had almost entirely destroyed the crops at Salmon Fort.
