News from Kansas and Utah.
ST. LOUIS, Friday, Jan. 14.
A special messenger from Governor MEDARY to Governor STEWART, arrived at Jefferson City, yesterday. He reports that MONTGOMERY is fortifying himself near the Missouri line; that United States troops have been sent to that region, and that volunteers are being raised as rapidly as possible. Six hundred muskets passed through Jefferson City, on Wednesday, for Kansas.
The Salt Lake mail reached St. Joseph’s on the 10th. The District Court met again on the 17th ult. Much excitement prevailed in reference to the sudden and mysterious disappearance of a deaf and dumb boy, and the Saints were charged with foul play, in the matter.
