FROM SALT LAKE.
We have received from Salt Lake papers to July 4th. We extract the following intelli-gence :
BUTTE VALLEY STATION.—Speaking of the burning of this station, the Mountaineer, of June 27th, says:
The Pony Express arrived last evening at ten minutes past eight o'clock from Ruby Valley. By it we learn that the Indians attacked and burned Butte Valley Station, twenty-three miles this side of Ruby Valley. This occurred within an hour after Major Egan left that station. While William Rogers, who was sent out about two weeks ago by Superintendent Forney, was distributing his store of blankets and shirts at the front of his wagon the Indians were stealing behind. Rogers and his associates shot two of the Indians, and when the Express left they were defending themselves as best they could.
DAKING ROBBERY.—On the afternoon of the 27th, the house of Alma L. Smith, in the Eighth Ward, Salt Lake, was entered by some person or persons, and property stolen to the value of $175.
ACCIDENT.—On the evening of June 15th, in Bingham's canon, while George W. Walker was engaged in stripping bark from a large tree which he had felled, the tree, being on the side of the mountain, slipped and jammed the right leg of the unfortunate young man against an-other tree, breaking the limb a little below the knee.
MAN LOST.—Charles Williams, a worthy and respectable citizen of Union, Great Salt Lake county, left his home on Monday, June 18th, in a state of mental derangement. Since that time he has not been heard of by his family or friends.
FOUND DEAD.—On Tuesday week, a man named William King, we have been informed, left his residence, at Kay's Creek, Davis county, early in the morning, to hunt for his horses on the range. Not returning during the day, as expected, search was made for him, and on Thursday afternoon his body was found on the sand ridge between Kay's Creek and the Weber, pierced with two balls. By whom he was shot, is not known ; but it is supposed that some al-leged unlawful meddling with one not his wife, was the moving cause of his untimely death.—News, July 4th.
THE DUTY OF WOMAN.—In a late discourse at the Tabernacle, Brigham Young thus dis-coursed :
But few women have a realizing sense of the immortal, invisible, and powerful influence they exert in their sphere. A mother may inquire, " What is to be done?" Break off, by faith, and in the name of Jesus Christ, from every false principle, from every hurtful practice, and over-come every appetite that tends to injure and destroy the tabernacle you bear. Take a course that will produce life, that children may be born full of life and vigor.
And during the period of nursing let the mother be faithful and prayerful, that her infant may enjoy a powerful, godlike and happy influ-ence. Do mothers so act ? Or do they prefer to run here and there, and to desire this, and fret for that, to gratify their appetites ?
