IMMIGRATION.—Captain J. G. Holman’s train arrived this morning, containing the last of this year’s immigration. It consisted of sixty-two teams, with 606 passengers, mostly Danes and Swedes. In addition there were also eight independent wagons, with about 40 passengers. They started from Benton September 1st. There were some few deaths on the road, but the mortality was small, considering the company was the same that came by the Emerald Isle, and had to stop in quarantine. With the exception of some few cases of sickness, the immigrants look healthy, rugged and well prepared to help build up the kingdom in these valleys.
