We are frequently asked when the last Company will leave for the Valley of the Great Salt Lake. It would almost appear that some men consider it a virtue to hang on, and linger here until the very last moment. Now then, we tell it plainly; those who are not ready to leave during the coming week, cannot leave with our faith: and any wagon that crosses the River after the 20th inst., crosses at their own risk and upon their own responsibility. Our faith and counsel for emigrants to leave, extend to no period beyond the 20th inst. Such as have not crossed over the River by that time, better not cross at all this year.
Emigrants should keep a strong guard on the Plains against Indian depredations. We hear they are very bad.
