SUFFERINGS OF THE MORMONS IN CALI-FORNIA.—The Californian of the 13th of February, says: The brig Francisca, three days from Yerba Buena, brings news of the extreme suffering of a party of emigrants who who were left on the other aide of the California mountain, about sixty in all, nine-teen of whom start to come into the valley. Seven only have arrived, the remainder died, and the survivors were kept alive by eating the dead bodies—Among the survivors are two young girls. A public meeting war held at Yerba Buena, and about eight hun-dred dollars raised for the relief of the suf-ferers who still remain in the mountain. Messrs. Ward and Smith kindly offered the use of their launch, and a party, under the direction of Passed Midshipman Woodworth, have left, with the intention of disembarking at the foot of the mountain and then going on foot, with packs of provisions. It is to be hoped they will succeed in reaching them with sufficient provisions to get them in. Such a state of things will probably never again occur, from the fact that the road is now better known, and the emigrants will hereafter start and travel so as to cross the mountain by the 1st of October.
