TRAIN IN.—Captain John R. Murdock's mule train of 50 wagons, with about 600 immigrants, got in to-day at noon. He left Laramie City on the 27th of July, and made the distance to this city in 21 traveling days. The trip was the most successful one he has ever had across the plains, and he has made five journeys for passengers, besides crossing several other times. There were six deaths in the company, from Laramie to this City, four infants and two young children. The immigrants are healthy and robust, but bear the marks of mountain travel.
