THE IMMIGRATION.—Elder T. Taylor telegraphed to President B. Young on Monday 30th ult., from Sweetwater Bridge, that he had 54 wagons and about 150 people with him, 45 of whom he sent on to the city with 8 teams in charge of Capt. Chipman, same day as he telegraphed. They were getting along pretty well, having nothing but flour; some few of the cattle were giving out. A combination of circumstances had kept the people back; their health is good, though there are many old and feeble among them.
Elder Charles Taylor has arrived in the city in advance of [Miner G.] Attwood and [Henson] Walker's trains. He reported six mule teams as expected in yesterday afternoon, with Scandinavian immigrants; two ox teams to-day, and the balance of the two trains about Sunday next.
