GOT HOME.—We had the pleasure of a visit this morning from Elder Moses Thatcher, who arrived by stage yesterday afternoon from his mission to Europe. He left this city on the 19th of April, 1867; and on arriving in England was appointed to preside over the Cheltenham Conference, in which capacity he labored for eleven months. He was then appointed to preside over the Birmingham Conference, which he did up to the time of his leaving for his return home. He left Liverpool on the 14th ult., on the steamship Colorado, and remained two weeks in New York, and one week at Benton.
He informs us that the sick passengers of the Emerald Isle, who were put in the hospital, had so far recovered as to be forwarded to Benton; and having been set on a fast train he believed they would reach Benton two days after the others.
The track, he stated, will be laid to Bitter Creek this week; and the grading is almost done nearly to Green River.
