THE EMIGRATING MORMONS.—The Han-cock Eagle, in its sheet of the 10th of April, gives the following intelligence from the Camp of Israel, as the company of Mormons now on their way to the country beyond the Rocky Mountains call themselves:
A mail carrier arrived here on Monday last from the Camp, and reported the pioneer party, or head of the column, as having crossed the tributaries of the Chariton river, over one hundred and fifty miles distant. By this time they are probably on the banks of the Missouri.
Thus far, every thing has gone favorably, with the exception of the breaking down of a few over-laden wagons. The party is in good health and spirits—no dissentions exist, and the "Grand Caravan" moves on slowly, but steadily and peace-fully. Their progress has been materially retarded by the want of fodder for their live stock; the grass not having fairly started, reduced them to the necessity of laboring for the farmers on the route to supply the deficiency.
They travel in detached companies, from five to ten miles apart, and, in point of order, resemble a military expedition.
