ARRIVALS.--Hon. G. P. Stiles, U. S. Associate Justice in the Third Judicial District, Joseph L. Heywood, U. S. Marshal, and their guard, together with Capt. Judson Stoddard and company arrived from Carson Valley on the 3rd inst. Mr. Chadwick and son, a Mr. Davies, Amasa Potter and a Mr. Morgan came through at the same time.
Hon. Enoch Reese, Representative from Carson, Bishop N. V. Jones, late President of the mission in Hindostan and the Birman Empire, O. P. Rockwell, Jefferson Edmunds and two other persons arrived from the West on the 4th inst. They left Carson on the 22nd ult., and came through in 13 days.
Since writing the above we have learned that Mr. T. D. Pitt piloted the company, is familiar with the country between here and Carson, and is ready to act as guide for any persons wishing to travel the nearest route. He is stopping at the Great Salt Lake House on East Temple st.
On the 7th inst. br. W. S. Godbe came in ahead of a train of 22 wagons which he left on Green River, October 4. All the Indians on the route were very friendly. He met the last missionary company at the 5th crossing of Sweetwater on the 23rd of Sept.; they were all well and getting along finely. From all that he could learn, br. Godbe supposes that all of this year's immigration, including goods' trains, is this side of the South Pass.
