THE IMMIGRATION.—We are pleased to publish the following telegrams to Pres. B. Young:—
Cap. Nebeker passed here today; some of his passengers had mountain fever. Teems look well.
My train left this morning all well, the stock are doing as well as could expect. No Indians to bother. Had flour to last to Green River. Are making good fair time with my train.
Passed here all right. The cattle I left here thirty-eight head are all stolen. I think I can arrive home with the cattle I have.
We passed here all in good spirits; going along well; a good deal of sickness among the passengers; cattle doing well.
My train left here this p.m. for Big Sandy, all well and in good spirits; very anxious to arrive home; my stock doing well; some tender footed. Mr. Hinkley informed me that there were twenty sacks of flour at Ham's Fork; if I get that it will supply me in.
I pass here today all well.
The company are all in excellent health; teams in good condition and making good progress.
