The Salt Lake mail arrived at Independence on Wednesday last. Mr. J. M. BERNHISAL. Delegate to Congress, was among the passengers.
The emigrants had all passed Salt Lake.
The Indians had been very troublesome in Utah, killing many persons. The Governor had issued a proclamation calling all the military forces of the Territory into service. He had also ordered a wall to be built around the City, 20 feet high, and 8 thick, with a ditch on the outside.
A body of fifty armed men had been sent out, but no captures had been made. Hot work is anticipated.
Major FITZPATRICK, having distributed the goods to the Indians at Fort Laramie, would return soon.
