ARRIVALS.—Capt. J. [Isaac] A. Canfield's train of some 60 wagons, laden with 208 Scandinavian immigrants, a large amount of freight for Messrs. Hooper and Eldredge, and a power press, caloric engine, &c., for the Deseret News office.
During the journey 12 deaths and 2 births occurred. They also lost about 23 head of cattle.
Among the rush of vehicles we also noticed a few mule teams with emigrants for California. They will be rather late to cross the Sierras.
