CALLED.—We received a call, this morning, from Elder F. C. Anderson, just returned from a mission to Europe. Elder Anderson left Utah in May 1865, reached Liverpool in the early part of August, and was appointed to labor in the Scandinavian mission. A few months afterwards he was appointed to preside over the Edinburgh Conference, and subsequently over the Bristol Conference; where he continued until last May, when he was released to return home. On arriving at New York he assisted in forwarding the various companies of emigrants to the terminus, and was afterwards left to look after those who were detained, through sickness, at Ward's Island hospital. The company were released from the hospital on the 3rd inst., and started for the terminus, arriving there on the 13th, being treated with marked respect and consideration by the railway officials along the entire line. One of this company, named Christian Petersen, was unavoidably left behind at New York. He had the misfortune to break his leg while crossing the Atlantic on board the Emerald Isle, and though in a fair way of recovery, it was not deemed prudent for him to risk the journey this season.
