For ihe following very interesting news, we aro indebted lo Mr. Monroe, connect- ed wilh the firm of J. D. Reese of Great Salt Lake Cily Mr. Monroe lefl iho Sjll Lake on the 1st of December, with two men. On the highesl mountains seventeen miles east of Salt Lake, he found ten feet of snow, anil three feet in the valleys to Hear River. Thence to the South Pass there was very little, am! ho found no difficulty in pass- ing. On leaving there, however, a heavy- snow was f.il'.ing, and deepening very rapidly Sioux and Crow Indians were met on the route, and Cheyennes on tiie North Fork, begging, hut with whom no difficulty occurred. The Pawnees were hunting on the North side of the river. At Bridges, Mr. Monroe overlook the Salt Lake Mail, when he sent two men back, and went on with the mail lo Fort Kearney. The mail hail left Indepen- dence on t'le 1st of September, arrived at Salt Lake on ihe 22d of November, and had left again for the States in two days afterward. At Fort Kearney, Mr. Mon- roe, finding the mail too slow for him, the animals being broken down, purchased a horse, and notwithstanding the extreme cold and clanger, went alone to Table Creek, making the distance on one horse in four days and four hours. We men tion this to show what may be done by energy. The miil contractors have had very bad success, in toeing a large number of hor ses and mules. The expenses incurred by the contractors are said lo have exceed- ed greatly the proceeds thus far, during State Yi'e copy the following article from the last Waukoshn Democrat.

We care nothing for ihem. The course which they are The Dublin Freeman informs ns lhat the amiable partner and beloved vrifn of John MLchell, accompanied by her. fuur children, have sailed from Liverpool lit tha Conilor for Port Adelaide, South Aus- tralia. Mrs. Mitchell was deeply affnut- ed on leaving Liverpool port, the last which it connected by any tie wilh "that dear she's leaving." Slia was companied from Ireland by Rev. Fath- er Keiu air, and on bnirJ the Condor she met by a few staunch friends of Ire- land's independence, although her intend- now pursuing will either destroy the con- ed departure from Liverpool ktft aa the winter season. Exertions are being made to have new contracts entered into, BO as to insure a belter feeling of security and dependence upon the mail arrange ments. At the Salt Lake everything was pro- gressing most prosperously. The gener- al health was very good, and the weather mild and pleasant. Gen. Rich and his company had returned there from the gold mines, bringing some gold dust, but not so much as was expected. Their ac- from the diggings were unfavora- >le. Grain is very abundant at the Lake bushels of wheat having been raised there last year. This, with lha vegetables raised, will afford an abundant supply of breadstuff's to those emigrating to, or returning" from California this year. The Messrs. Reese intend sending out jreadsuffa and everything necessary for the supply of spring and summer emigra- tion to the South Pass and Graen River. The news of the organization-of the territory and appointment of officers, pro- duced bill little excitement among the peo- fidrnce of ihe people, in the professions of those who style themselves democrats, or leaJ lo an overthrow of the parly. There is no doubt of there being quar- upon ihe State, a gang of blood suck- ers, whose only aim is to ring sufficient from it, to supply them with money lo ihein to indulge in idleness and ex- travagance 'he rest of the year. There hare been claims presented from year to ye ir, by the same individuals, for some all jged services or other, until they have become in fact pensioners upon the Stale. We have no wish to interfere with bona- fkle claims, but we decidedly object to this indiscriminate plunder. The com- pensation of public officers, should be siuh as to insure ths performance ofolfi- secrei at possible. citl duties on their part, without feeling that they are inadequately paid. It is a mistaken noiion that the lower the salary lliu better for the people. It is not true economy. j The salaries of our State functionaries I arj fixed by the Constitution and we do net see as they are any better entitled to extra compensation than any other class of men. If these salaries are insufficient, tha proper remedy is to alter the constitu- tion and not by special act of the Legisla- ture. THE UK1TID Brussels paper MTiie Prague Gazette announces, what waa ea- sy to foresee, the complete nipture of the diplomatic relations between Austria and the United Slates. It is certain that, af- ter the insulting reception given to communications by the American Senate, the presence of M. Hulsemann, Charge a'AlTairjs of Austria at Washington, had became impossible, and it is probable lhat. if the geographical position of the two powers were different, the rupture would not be roiifined to the recall of the Aus- trian representative." Letters Irom Vi- enna, pjblished in the leadinf morning journal, state that, had Mr. Mann, Ihe U. S. Ageni, once entered Hungary for Aus- tria Prrpcr, he would have been that tt a pie.
