A Salt Lake correspondent of the Baltimore Sun , under date of October 31, says:
"We have dreadful accounts of the sufferings among the Mormon emigrants by the hand-cart train, which is now in the mountains. The train contained 350 souls. One-seventh are already dead, and they are dying at the rate of fifteen per day.—There are some 600 more behind, of which we have heard nothing. We hope that they stopped at Laramie. It is impossible for them to get through this fall. The Mormons estimated that there are not less than 1500 of their brethren yet to come in, and the snow is reported to be not less than 3 feet deep in the mountains."
