Elders ORSON PRATT, WILFORD WOODRUFF and his company; and Elder N. H. FELT and company arrived here a few days since, all well; and many of them are bound for the Salt Lake Country, and many will settle in Pottawatamie County. The California Emigration has been greater through this place than through any other place on this frontier, according to the best information that we can obtain. At any rate, we shall be able in our next, to give a pretty accurate statement of the number of teams and men that have crossed at this point. We now believe the number of teams that have passed here for the mines will exceed five thousand. Our own emigration is very large from all parts. There have twelve first class steamers arrived here from St. Louis this Spring, laden to the guards. We shall be glad when the rush is over, and our streets once more comparatively clear, and our citizens themselves again. Throng and excitement have given us a peculiar longing for a little tranquility and seclusion.
