[Communicated.] Richmond, June 10, 1861. To the Rev. Cornelius Walker, D. D., Rector Christ Church, Alexandria:Sir: --It is stated in the journals of the day, that on a certain Sunday recently, you preached as usual in your church, assisted by Rev. Mr. Myers, Chaplain of the Michigan Regiment. Now, as this was not a private, but a public transaction, and as the Southern public has a vital interest in a precedent involving grave consequences, I will take the liberty to make the following inquiry and inference.--As the Ritual of your Church prescribes a prayer for "the President and all others in authority," and as your Rev. Assistant on this occasion was an officer, commissioned and paid, in the forces now holding Alexandria as a conquered city, I would respectfully ask, for what "President " and for what "authorities" did that gentleman pray? If for your President, and your authorities, then he is a traitor to the cause in which he is enlisted; but if he prayed for his
iation and prayer, with thanksgiving, and the President having appointed the 10th instant for that purpose, we accept it as a solemn duty, and will observe the day in a becoming spirit." Mr. Young then introduced to the meeting the Rev. Cornelius Walker, D. D., who made a forcible and admirable address on the duty and necessity of contributing supplies of food for the army of Northern Virginia. He spoke of the present as an emergency demanding prompt, vigorous and efficient action; referrntribute, in some way, as large a portion of their supplies as can possibly be spared. to act in co-operation with that committee, the Justices of the Court then appointed the following committees under the first resolution offered by the Rev. Dr. Walker, to wit: First District: W. C. Knight, R. A. Mayo, Jackson F. Childrey. Second District: Miles Eggleston, Jos. J. English, P. H. Huffman. Third District: James M. Carter, D. S. Delaplaine, George W. Carter. Fourth District:
