We have much pleasure in quoting the following from the Mormon, Sept. 8.â€”"We feel great pleasure in announcing the arrival of the Cynosure in New York, on Wednesday morning, the 5th instant after a tolerable good passage of 38 days. This vessel left Liverpool on the 28th of July, with a company of Saints to the number of 162, under the presidency of Elder George Seager. During the passage there were three deaths under two years, one birth, and two marriages. On her arrival opposite the battery the lighter was towed alongside the vessel, and the whole of the passenger, all in good health, with their luggage, were landed in about an hour and a half. The following letter to the president of the company by the surgeon, may serve as another evidence of the superior order maintained by our emigrants. The company express the best of feelings toward that gentleman:--
Ship Cynosure, New York Sept. 5, 1855
"My Dear Sir: In parting with you I cannot but express my thanks for the very able co-operation you have afforded me on the late passage from Liverpool, in maintaining order, and cleanliness among the passengers, under your presidency and only regret that some few others did not follow the example set by the Mormons.
I shall at any time be glad to hear of their well-doing and beg you to tender my best thanks to the presidents and elders of the several wards for the assistance they have given me, under your direction, and to each and all of your party my most cordial wishes for their health, happiness and prosperity, and with them my kindest farewell."
Believe me, Very truly yours, John G. Goulstone, surgeon,
To President George Seager. . . . [p.650]
