For the TeleitPsPh
Mr. Forron.:—By inserting the following ex
tract from one of our refigfOns'iOlitreae, in the
collimos of the Tazzortara; you will oblige a
friend, and perhaps stimulate etuistians to
pray more earnestly for the - sgocess of our
army, and tha speedy 'termination of rebellion
against our - National Goveinment. It is
" That God would, in His infinite mercy, so
blow otwikbttional Government, as that it may be
able to ,preaerve its unity and entireness ; tri
umptiOnir all the dark maohirtations of its
enemies; succeed in all its efforts to restore
concorcland peace: te secured in tte means of
defence against, all t defeat and disaster, and in
all its official persons and acts, be an example
to the people of hi:treble trust in 'God, and of
That God wouia divest the war =of all
brutal pamiens and barbarous acts :, and as far
as poWble prevent the effusion of human
blond. That he would, by His grace, minter.
act the demoralising influences of camp life,
and so plentifully endue our soldiers and sail•
ors with His Holy Spirit, that amidst all their
peculiar temptations, they may learn to fear
His holy name, and offer to him a spiritual,
worship: _ . ,
That He wouldmercifully spare,the„UrfS o
the leadem.of ear fumes, imparting to Ahern
bravery and Skill, and enable them to devise
and execute such plans as may contribute to
ultimate succcsa. That be would shield our
soldiery in the day of battle, and prepare
those who are appointed to fall in the service
of their countiy, for a sudden and violent
transition from liie to death. That He would
alleviate the pains and sorrows of the woun
ded and mutilated, and lead them in their
afflictions to look up to christ as a sympathising
That He would visit with His mercy those
who are lying in the camps and hospitals
sick and disabled, and bless the remedied for
their moral improvement, as well as physical
restoration. That he would lead the chaplains
in the artily and navy to 'feel their heavy re
sponsibility, as those who are entrusted with
the care of souls,tand divest each of official po
sition as have no just sense of their holy voca
tion, or bring it into discredit by their unholy
living. That He would mercifully protect the
families of our soldiers, who are deprived of
their presence, and to mitigate their situation,
that their sacrifices may be tolerable. That
He would bring the war to a speedy close; in
spire the enemies of the government with a
better mind, restore them to their allegiance,
and the prosperity they have recklessly thrown
away ; and to order all things, in hie provi'
dance, that great and lasting good may result
from the unhappy conflict, and secure to the
nation a lasting peace, great prosperity, and a
readier ability to serve God, and promote the
cause of true religion." "A LADY.

AN Irrreassruto lacinsurr.- 7 A released prisoner
who gives his experience in' Secessia to the Ro
chester Express, relates this incident:
Of the tax or seven cars which started from
Manassas, there were but two remaining when
we reached the rebel capital, Richrnond. We
arrived there about nine o'clock in the evening.
After the care bad halted, I heard a low voice
at my window, which was partly raised. lt was
quite dark, and I could not disting-nisli the
speaker, who waa an Irish woman.
"Whist," said she, "are you hungry?"
I' replied that I was not, but that some of
the boys probably were.
"Wait till I go to the house," she continued,
—and a moment afterwards I heard her again
at the window. She handed me a loaf of
bread, some meat and about a dozen baker's
cakes, saying, "that was all I had in the house,
but I had a shillin' and I bought the cakes wid
it and if I had more you should have it and
welcome ! Take it and God bless ye."
I thanked her and said, "you are very kind
"Whist," said she, "and ain't I from New
York meself ?"
This was the first Union demonstration that
I witnessed in Old Virginia. I Thanked God
for the consttation which the reflection afforded
me, as fur the; third night I lay sleeplessly in
the oars, my clothing still saturated, and my
body thoroughly chilled from the effects of the
deluge at Manassas, I could have desired no
sweeter morsel than the good , woman's homely
loaf, and proud of the loyal . giver, I rejoiced
that "I was from New York messif."
Ammo thpse who were slain at Roanoke, in
the armies of the Union, was Joseph G. Henry,
a nephew of Mr. Scranton, late representative
in congress from Pennsylvania. He was a cap
tain in the 9th New Jersey regiment, and in the
middle of the fight, seeing that wine companies
hesitated to advance, he threw his own into the
trout, and while leading it fa Before the
Sailing of the expedition, Mr. Henry bad been
appointed confetti to -Port Malmin—e position
worth $2,000 a year—but so anxious was he
to serve his countty in the field, that he •de
dined this imitative 0444 Bailed with the 'Bx
pedition to North Carolling, and has now laid
down his life' for his oatintry.
