ELDERS ARRIVED.—We had calls this morning from the following returned missionaries, whom we were glad once more to meet "at home:"
Elder James McGaw, who left in May of 1865, and who arrived yesterday with Mr. Murdock's train. His missionary labors were confined to England, and the latter part of the time he presided over the Nottingham District. He left England on the 4th of June, in charge of the passengers on the John Bright.
Elder Zebulon Jacobs, who left in May, 1867, and who traveled from Laramie with Captain Rawlins' train, arriving last night, ahead of it. He labored in the Birmingham Conference, and was released to return home this summer in consequence of ill health. He looks thin, but his health is restored.

He crossed the Atlantic in the Minnesota, in charge of the saints who sailed on that steamship, of whom there were 546. He traveled from Laramie in Capt. Rawlins' train.
