"Scene" in a Church.

--An excitement occurred in the House of Prayer (Episcopal) at the service on Fast Day. The officiating clergyman, Rev. Mr. Sterns, who has been temporarily supplying the place of Rev. Mr. Shackelford, in his discourse, pointedly justified the course of the South, and denounced the North. Several members of the congregation left the house, while others hissed, and the leading vestryman demanded and procured the manuscript, which has been laid before the U. S. District Attorney.--Newark (N. J.) Mercury.
