Later from Utah.
ST. LOUIS, MAY 17.—The following particulars from Utah have been derived by the Republican from Mr. Garrish, who left Camp Scott April 12th. While his in-formation does not fully corroborate the news already given, it at least leaves no room to call in question the fact that Governor Cumming had entered Salt Lake City.
Col. Kane, who was sent out as peace commissioner, via California, arrived at Salt Lake City on the 25th of February, and remained there eight days. He then pro-ceeded to Camp Scott, and while there frequently passed from the camp to a place of conference with the leading Mormons outside. In pursuance of the negotiations there entered into Gov. Cumming left Camp Scott on the 5th of April, and was met by a gentleman on the 9th, when but two days' travel from the city. He was ac-companied by Col. Kane, and escorted by Messrs. Por-ter, Rockwell, Egan, and other Mormons. The arrival of the Governor at the city was anticipated on the 11th, and handsome apartments had been provided for his re-ception.
A gentleman who is well informed in relation to the Mormons, and who had just arrived from Salt Lake, told the Republican's informant that the general feeling in the city was in favor of peace, and that only a portion of the leaders were advocating resistance.
The scouting party in charge of B. F. Fickling—about whose safety apprehensions had been felt—had returned to camp. The provision trains for Camp Scott left Fort Laramie on the 24th of April, and Col. Hoffman was to leave the next day.
Capt. Marcy, with his train of horses and mules and about 3,000 sheep, was heard from on the Cherokee trail, two hundred miles south of Fort Laramie. He had not then been joined by the troops detailed by Gen. Garland, but was awaiting their arrival. When heard from his progress was very slow, but he would probably reach Camp Scott by the 20th of May.
The mail party experienced heavy rains east of Fort Laramie, and the roads were in a wretched condition.
