HIGHLY IMPORTANT FROM UTAH.
Return of the Mormons to their Homes.
Salt Lake City Again Occupied by Brigham Young and His Followers-Gen. Johnson and the Amy in Cedar Valley.
St. Louis, Monday, July 26.
By the arrival, of the steamer D. A. January, at Booneville, we have Leavenworth dates of the 23d inst. Mr. Livingston, an old trader on the plains, arrived there last night, from Salt Lake City, with dates of June 30. The army had marched from the Capitol for Cedar Valley, forty miles below. BRIGHAM YOUNG, and the heads of the Mormon Church, had returned to the City, and the people were follow-ing them en masse. All was quiet in the Valley. Some of the returned teamsters are circulating a re-port of rich gold deposits in the vicinity of Saint Ver-ains Fort. These statements do not receive full credit, in the absence of information from authentic sources.
Dispatches from Saint Josephs, dated the 22d, per the steamer D. A. January, states that advices from Salt Lake City to July 3d have been received. The Mormons had all returned to the city and their homes in the different parts of the territory.
Gen. JOHNSTON had passed through the city with his horses, and encamped thirty miles on the other side of it. No troops were in the city.
The Government officers had been duly installed in their various offices, and were prepared for the proper discharge of their duties.
BRIGHAM YOUNG was anxious to be tried on the charge of treason, but insisted that the jury should consist of Mormons only.
