“The Pillsburg Gazette announces the
anivnl in' Ihnt CH! 0! Mr. E. Whipple,
one 0! the lending Motmona. [mm the set
llemcnl in .thc neighbmhood ol the Great
Salt Lake.
. Mr. Whipple left the Great Salt Lake
nettlement on the mm 0! October. and
arrived at Fort Kearney. on the Miaaorri.
in 51 days. The nettlement of Mormons
with which he is connected, is located in
a beauttlul valley on the borders oi the
Great Salt Lnlte. in the north-eastern
part of Upper California. The Great
Salt Lnke'is about 150 milen long. by 50
broad, and contains nothing living. It is
raid that three barrels ol water mll make
one 0! unit. The shares of the Lake, in
the dry season. are encrusted with ralt fit
for use. It has no out-let.
Nearly south ol the Salt Lake is a fresh]
water lake called the Utah. “high emp
ties its waters into the former. In this
lake, fish, the mountain trout. are louud.
l The river which connects the two Lakes
the Mormons call the Jordan. The val.
lay in which they are situated slopes from
the mountains to the river. on both mice.
These lakes. we may state (or theiulor
motion of those Who have not access to
late loops. are situated on the western
slope of the Rocky Mountains. near the
head _waters of the River Platte. which
runs into the "Miaaomi, the Colerado.
which empties into the Gull ol Calilomia,
nd the Columbia, which'emptiea into the
cific. The waters ol the Platte and the
C orado almost unite by means of the
SW 1 Water Rivet. which heads west 01
the “meky‘Mountain chain, and runs into
the P Qe through the lamoua South Pass.

Mr. Whipple rays the road isvery good
all the way lrom Independence to wen u
the mountains. In 1847. about 1,000 wal
guns passed over it, and last year some
350. The trail is so well defined that no
danger lrom losing it need be feared.
Mr. Whipple recommends urn in prel
ercnce to mules, and says they will make
very goodtimei Emigrants usually make
about 15 miles a day. On some portions
of the route there is a scarcity of grass.—
For üboul'soo miles. buflnlo meal can be
obtained in abundance.
Mr. Whipple represents the valley at
the Salt Lake as perfectly healthy. & the
journey to that region as attended with no
dangers and but little fatigue. lle re
turn: afiifi‘in the Spring. .
The Mormons have established ferries
over the only rivers which are not lorda
blc on account of high waterl—the Ptatte
and Green rivere,—ao that no hindrance
to emigrants frutn that cause need now be
feared. No gold has )et been found In
the neighborhood of the Salt Lake. or a
nywhere east of the Sterra Nevada. as far
as Mr. Whipple is informed. What has
reacncd that region, was brought there by
the discharged Mormon soldier-t who had
returned from the Placer to visit their rll
With reference to the story that the
Mormons had claimed a preemption right
to the diggingn. and were demanding a
per centage on the gold lound. Mr. Whip
ple gives the following account. The
first dilcovery of gold was made by Mar
mons, (discharged soldier!,) in digging 0
mill race lor Mr. Stiller. As the diocov
I cry was on hie ground. he gave them the
liberty of digging gold. on condition ol
paying him a certain percentage. This
they agreed to do but soon started 0” to
endow (at themselves, and havnng lnund
come rich spot they demanded a percent
age from new comers lo‘r digging in their
ground, to which they claimed a rightol
discovery. This practice in general in
the mines. and the Mormons, Mr'. Whip
plc 9331. no more claim the whole of the
mines than they do the \\ hole oi Caliloruia.
We regret to perceive that in order to
secure the success at the hill, (or the com
pletion ol the North Branch Canal. a bill
has been read in the Legislature, ollering
to the Banks 0! the Commonwealth, the
privilege of issuing a new batch of small
notes. in return {or a loan of two million
for twenty years. 'We regret to see an
