Methodists turning to Episcopalianism.

--On the 20th ultimo, the Independent Methodist Society of Sehon Chapel, in Louisville, Kentucky, came in a body into the Episcopal Church, transferring to that church all the property previously held by the congregation. That property consists of a very handsome church building, capable of holding four or five hundred persons, with school rooms; situated in the heart of the city, and worth not less than $24,000. The members associated themselves as a parish of the Protestant Episcopal Church, under the name of Calvary Church. To enable the new parish to start free of embarrassment the Episcopalians of Louisville stepped forward, and in two days raised $8,500, the balance of debt remaining.
