Returned.—We learn that the two boys whose ambition led them to assume the life of tramps, were, by direction of their fathers, arrested at Franklinton [Franklin County] on the Raleigh & Gaston Railroad and held to await the arrival of Officer Goodwin, who left yesterday morning to escort the young prodigals homeward [Wake County]. We have not heard that the fatted calf will be slain.
