This is a wise and generous move of the friends in the Valley to aid the poor to go from this place to the Salt Lake Country. Prest. Young was the originator of it. Let no one be jealous because he cannot be helped now, but be thankful that any one can be helped, and if you do right, perhaps you will be helped next time. Patience and perseverance are bound to draw the prize sooner or later. Whoever can throw in an ox, a cow, a horse, a mule, or a pair of each, can have the gratification and honor of doing so. Cash will not be refused. Bishop Hunter is now here. He is the agent of the fund, and will receive and disburse the same among the poor according to his judgment and discretion.
