TELEGRAMS.—We have been favored with the following telegrams to President B. Young:
Wagon Pound, 19.
I have lost 90 head of oxen yesterday p.m., taken by Indians, and a few killed. Send us oxen and provisions, or we shall leave freight at Platte Bridge.
W. S. CHIPMAN.
Fort Kearney, 19.
The companies are all past here except one. They have some sickness.
Julesburg, Aug. 19.
Just arrived, well. Have ascertained that the trains are getting along first rate. Yesterday Scott and Lowry were still below Kearney. Passed Haight and Nebeker crossing the Platte above Plum Creek, all well. Rawlins crossed below O'Fallon's Bluffs on the 17th.
JOHN T. CAINE.
