Arrivals from the Plains.


On the evening of the 3d instant, Captain Joseph W. Young arrived with his freight train, consisting of some thirty wagons, with ox teams, which have made the trip to the Missouri river and back this season. The cattle, which we did not see, are said to have returned in good order and condition, looking better than some that have only been driven from the States this year.


Capt. E. D. Woolley, with a train of nine mule wagons, with which he went to the east from this city last spring for merchandize, was also in company, and several others, increasing the number of wagons that came in with Capt. Young to fifty one.

Capt. William Budge, in charge of the last immigrants company, consisting of some seventy wagons and over four hundred persons, arrived on Friday about noon. There were four deaths and four births reported, in the company, during the journey from Florence.

It is gratifying to witness the arrival of the immigrant Saints in good health and spirits before the winter snows begin to fall on the mountains, rendering their passage cold and uncomfortable.
