Mr. Davis Visited by his old Richmond pastor.

--The Fortress Monroe correspondent of the New York Herald is "authoritatively informed" that the Rev. Dr. Minnigerode, of Richmond, pastor of St. Paul's Church, of which Mr. Davis is a member, and which he generally attended during his residence here, has been permitted to spend a day in company with Mr. Davis:

‘ "The sacrament was administered to him, and everything done that could be, by his old religious teacher and adviser, through scriptural reading and prayer, to give him peace of mind and that cheerful content and resignation following the right kind of teaching and faith. During his imprisonment, Mr. Davis's only religious attendant and adviser has been the post captain, Rev. Mr. Cheevers, a most amiable and excellent man and worthy and devout clergyman. It was natural he should like to be attended by his old pastor, and no one will be inclined, I am sure, to blame him for asking the privilege of his attendance upon him or find fault with the request being complied with."
