THE third company, consisting of 50 wagons, and two carriages, under the command of Capt. John Banks, arrived at the Elk Horn on the 10th inst., in fine spirits and good health. No deaths—but two births.
They appear to be having a good time out on the "Horn." The Brass Band from the Hand Cart company united with the St. Louis Band, and played to the great delight of the trains.—[Council Bluffs Bugle, July 22.
