LATE FROM THE IMMIGRATION. —Captain John Smith left his company on Ham's Fork, Wednesday last, in the afternoon, and came in with his sister, Mrs. Walker, accompanied by her son, who had accidentally been wounded in the arm by the discharge of a gun, and arrived at his residence near this city on Saturday evening.
He reports that his company and those ahead of it were getting along finely. Captain Ross was but a short distance in advance, and Captain Murphy's company was at Sulpher Creek when he passed it on Thursday, and Captain Brown's at Bear River on Friday morning. He reports several deaths among the children in his company, since passing Laramie, of whooping-cough, all of whom were sick before starting from Florence.
