IMPORTANT FROM UTAH.
Governor Cumming Expelled from Salt Lake City.
THE MORMONS DETERMINED TO RESIST.
Dispatches from Governor Cumming to the Sate Department—The Troops at Camp Scott living on Mule Meat, &c.
ST. LOUIS, Thursday, June 3.
A dispatch from Leavenworth, the 1st, says that intelligence from Camp Scott to the 6th of May, had been received at the Fort. On that day two Mormons came into the Camp from Salt Lake City, having dis-patch's from Governor CUMMING for Secretary CASS. The troops were expected to move towards the Val-ley fry by the end of May. Nothing was known at the Camp, at the date mentioned, of any proceedings within the city. The foregoing came by mail to the fort. The expressman who brought it supplies the following additional particulars
He left Fort Laramie on the 18th of May. At Fort Kearney, the commanding officer directed him to in-form Col. MONROE that he had information that Gov-ernor CUMMING had been excelled from Salt Lite City, and that the Mormons were in arms, determined to resist the army to the last, and requesting Col. MONROE to push on as speedily as possible. This communication, it is understood, was received at Fort Kearney through the mail brought by this mes-senger, to whom it was committed probably for lack of time. Col. HOFFMAN'S command was met seventy-five miles beyond Fort Laramie. They had encountered snow two or three feet deep, and had lost many animals. All the streams were very high. The Peace Commissioners had passed Fort Laramie ; they were obliged to swim the Platte at that post. It is reported that the troops at Camp Scott were living on mule meat. No official infor-mation had been received at the Fort, but the author ity furnishing this intelligence is regarded as ques-tionable.
