thero being no largo rivers to cross,
and no rugged mountain chains inter

An occasional correspondent nt Sac

statements have, during tho pnst nino

public have been so often disappointed,
that It may not bo uninteresting to tho
readers of the IJttUciln to lenrn what is
tho condition of affairs pertaining to it,
and u hat the prospects of ultimate sue
cess. A few days ago I noticed a par
ngraph in n Sacramento paper, stating
that it would bo ready for trial on tho
race-course In a few days. I am sorry
to say that the author of that state
mont.'liko that of other newspaper
promises, ii mistaken. In order to ful
ly satisfy myself that tho Steam Wag

it. After various enquiries I succeeded,

it, I send you a brief description of tho

borhood, and who had been confined
In Salt Lako City, wero murdorcd on
their way to California. A parly of
four started from tho City. They pro.

when about two days' journey west of
Ogdeq City they wero set upon by In
