Presbyterians Have Guests

The Carrolltonians have had the pleasure of seeing Gen. John C. Breckinridge, who, accompanied by his son, Owen, on Saturday returned from the New Liberty fair with the Hon. Jesse D. Bright. They attended the Presbyterian Church, on Sunday, and seldom has one of its pews contained more distinguished, worthy, and popular men, than Gen. W. O. Butler, Bright and Breckenridge.  Gen. Breckenridge, though still in prime and vigor of manhood, looks somewhat older, from the wear and tear of the last eight years.  He and Mr. Bright left here on Sunday evening for St. Louis, to attend the Convention, for the removal of the U. S. Capital, having been appointed to it by Gov. Stevenson.
