IMMIGRATION—FORTS BRIDGER AND SUPPLY—
By letter from Major Robert T. Burton, of the life Guards, to Lt. Gen. D. H. Wells, dated at Fort Supply, Oct. 20, inst., we learn that all was quiet in that region, and as soon as the immigration was all past, the detachment would return, unless some unexpected circumstance transpired to prevent.
Capt. C. A. Harper's company left Fort Bridger on the morning of the 20th.
On the 19th, part of Capt. I. [Isaac] Allred's train was on Green River, and part of Ham's Fork.
The express carrier passed Capt. [Milo] Andrus' train on Weber river on the 21st; they will probably arrive by the 24th.
No word of T. S. Williams and their rear train of merchandize.
