UTAH TERRITORY.—The Deseret News gives us some insight into the progress of the settle-ments in the Mormon region. From this source we learn that Palmyra contains one hundred fam-ilies, the first house having been built in Septem-ber last. It is surrounded by a fine farming re-gion, and has good water facilities. Springville has more than one hundred and thirty families, besides a grist mill and a saw mill, a brass band, and a school for teaching the French and German languages. Provo is a large town, and much crowded. Many new buildings are in progress, German and French schools are taught, and a dramatic association is in operation. A bridge across the stream at Provo, to replace one swept away by a spring flood, is in progress, besides a flouring mill, and a company is turning the Crown river into its old channel, to prevent overflows. The town of Cedar, in Iron county, contains 70 men, about half being employed by the Deseret Iron Company. This place has a dam and water course, several furnaces, aud a casting house. The town of Harmony, in the same county, has an iron foundry in rapid progress. Parordan, al-so in Leon county, is extensively engaged both in the lumber and iron trades. They have iron works there. Several other settlements in the iron region are named, all apparently quite flourishing.
