LATER FROM UTAH.—The government is in possession of dispatches from Gen. JOHNSON, dated 16th of May. They present a less promis-ing aspect of affairs, owing mainly to the pro-ceedings which Judge ECKLES and the U. S. Marshal have sought to institute in defiance of the Governor's policy. BRIGHAM YOUNG has as-sured Gov. CUMMING that he was willing to give himself up if he should have a reasonable chance of justice. Gov. CUMMING had been successful in his negotiations with the several tribes of In-dians, and reports favorable progress with others.
A dispatch from Leavenworth, 24th, says an express from Camp Scott, bringing dates to the 10th inst.—five days later—has arrived. Letters from the garrison report Col. Hoffman within one, and Capt. Marcy within two days' march of Fort Bridger.
It is settled that Gov. Cumming felt consider-able distrust of the Mormons and their promises, and that the army would break camp and march on to the capital. By the 15th inst., there would be an efficient and well armed force of 2500 men, plenty of food, and troops eager for the command to march.
