Some Oriii.hi RuMor. in New York have liad in contemplation the establishment of a Free Church for the especial uao of British im migrants, and being good and royal subjects of Queen Victoria, vcre desirous that the English prayer book should bo used in the services of the Church, retaining the proscribed prayers tor the Queen and royal family. They applied to Bishop Oderdonk for his Episcopal sanctions, but the Bishop, in his letter of reply, questions the expediency of instituting worship strictly According to the forms of the English Church, in this country, where natives of Britain come, mostly, with a view to permanent and not mere temporary residence. Such a course, he con ceives, would tend to an objectionable keeping i .ip of national distinctions and cherishing of fit teign attachments, and as such could not right fully be sanctioned by ecclesiastical authority in Miis country. The Bishop also points out the impropriety of expecting the Episcopal Church of tho ITuited State...

A POOR EXCVSK. the Knickerbocker furnishes thr following Tactical Epistle,' from J. G. S , to a bachelor friend, urging him at once to enter into th con miliial state. He thinks it "the sovereign'st thing in creation :" Don't tell me you 'haven't got time.' That other things claim your attention ; There's not the least reason or rhyme In the wisest excuse you can mention ; Don't tell me about 'other fish,' Your duty is done when you buy 'cm ; And you never will relish the dish, Unless you've a woman to 'fry 'em.' You may dream of poetical fame But the story may chance to miscarry ; The best way of sending one's name To posterity, Charles, is to marry. And here I am willing to own (After soberly thinking upon it.) I'd very much rather be known Through beautiful son, than a sonnet. Don't be frightened by querulous stories liy gossiping grumblers related, Who argue that marriage a bore is, r.ecause they've known people mis-mated.
