Religion in the Fleet.—A private letter, says the New-York Post, from 1 one of our ships in the Gulf squadron, gives welcome intelligence of a good religious impression prevailing in the fleet. In the ship of which the writer is an officer, there are services in the morning and Sunday School in the afternoon. " Most of the officers are religiously inclined; our First Lieutenant and Surgeon are professors of religion, and so are some among the crew. Meetings are held during the week as well as on Sundays, and are well attended."

At present the effort is to obtain ships . whieh shall be invulnerable by artillery.
