President Orson Hyde, Elder A. Carrington, and Judge Brocchus, arrived in our valley on Sunday eve, 17th inst. We get no general news from the States of later dates, than before mentioned. The party were robbed by the Pawnees and Omahas, as they believed; or as the Indians would say, swapped shirts with them, neglecting to present [illegible]. They appear to have had a rough and tedious passage, and confirm the strongest reports of the high waters on the Western Frontier about 500 wagons on the route, our emigration may be expected to commence in the valley in about two weeks; some merchant trains, perhaps this week.
