The President looks remarkably well, and walks as firm and oroot as he did, twonty years ago. He was cordially and enthusiastically welcomed to the Springs, by the Immonso audience, in a beautiful little lueidont which occurred at the dinner table, an hour or two after his arrival.

T., we see by the Squatter Sovereign of the 1st instl, ooe of the largest of those caravans or " trains" by which the com merce between the States and the Great Salt Lake Valiey is carried. The train will consist of seventy-three wagons, eight hundred and revesty-six oxen, and ninety men. It will be laden witti one. hundred and forty tons of asorted merchandite, adapted -to the- Salt Lake trade. Some idea of the immense value of the goods whioh will be carried by this train may possibly be hadwhen ire state that the freight alone npon them from here to Salt Lake will exceed $40,000. The wagons are now being loaded at the warehouse of £- C. Wolfolk, atad it is surprising to see the amount of. goods that can be stowed away in one of these ' ( prairie scows."

THE COURTS Quarter Sessions—Judge Allison.—Bail Reduced-—An application was made to the Court on Saturday morning to reduce the bail in tha case of tbe CammoKwraltk vs. John and Guirtei Ravj} It appeared by the statement of counsel for the defendant, that Alderman Ogle, before whom the casd was heard, had imposed the ludicrous bail of $25,-000 upon those two liefentonU; although it wa3 not charged that the defendants had obtained more than $6,000 worth of goods. ' Judge Allison said: Although he had not beard all the facts, that the bail, demanded «as eic«- sive, that it should be reduced to $5 000 upon e«h of the charges, $10,000 in all. This practice of imposing excessive bail is very reprehensible, and exhibits a persacnting spirit. It may increase the difficulty of obtaining bail, but will ' have no effect before a court of justice. Bail was not entered in this case before the rising of the Court. In the Case of the Commonwealth vs. Anna Meister, O/c , Judge Parsons conclu...

THE CITY The Sabbath lion—The golden haze is in the East. The asure dome above is unstirred through all its vast profound. Peace is enthroned upon all the fleecy clouds, and gently they float upon thebosom of the sky. Still are earth and air. The waters seem to heed the hush, and to murmur more softly as they flow. The city answers to the quiet of nature. Silence i» upon the lately busy haunta and thronged ways. Hark! a sound breaks, but doea not mar the stillness—there Is music in the ait—the Sabbath bells are ringing. Sweetly their tones go forth with their wooing welcome unto all:—" Come, oome up hither; come up unto worship." Years agone the voices were the same; and thus they spoke on the old Sabbaths unto many over whoge graves their mnsio now mingles with the breeie of morn. From door: way after doorway, they step i?ho are going to the house of prayer, In the mood of .pleasant converse thoy wend their way, while, the bells keep sweot companionship.
