TRAIN IN.—Captain Molen's ox train got in to-day, with 61 wagons and about 300 passengers. They left Benton on the 12th ult., and consequently made the trip in 21 days. They traveled from Benton to the Sweetwater, some 75 miles, and struck the old emigrant road up that river, about 30 miles from Independence Rock, making the journey about 400 miles. There was one death among the passengers, from Benton to this city, that of a child who died on the Weber.
Captain McArthur's train of 61 wagons got in this afternoon. There were 411 passengers started with it, of whom five died by the way. The deaths were children. Captain McArthur left Benton on the 14th of August, and followed the same road as Captain Molen.
