Fort Bridger.—By letter from Geo. W. Boyd to br. William A. Hickman, dated the 12th inst., we learn that the Indians are occasionally killing cattle, both those belonging to the Fort rancho and to the Mountaineers.
He writes that Capt. Hooper had just bought 20 yoke of oxen from Jack Robinson, to supply the deficiency in his train, and that two men had just come from br. [Milo] Andrus in quest of animals to assist him, for his company was at Green river and unable to roll. Br. Andrus also wrote to br. Boyd that many of the men, women and children were almost barefoot and very destitute of clothing.
