ARRIVED--On the 25th inst., Captain Richard Ballantyne's company of P. E. Fund Saints.--In passing through the streets of our city, all had joyful countenances; and the train presented a beautiful appearance as it wended its way to Union square, enlivened in its progress with the sweet straines of music by the Nauvoo Brass Band, which went back to the Willow springs to meet this company and their old Captain, Wm. Pitt.
While the company were corraling the First Presidency drove on to the Square and were highly gratified that so many poor Saints had successfully escaped from wickedness and oppression.
