n Church, corner of Broad and 25th streets, took place last Sunday night. This being one of the most interesting ceremonies of the Church, a large concourse assembled to witness it. In the crowd were several ministers of the Hanover Presbytery. The sermon on the occasion was preached by Rev. Dr. Read, of the United Presbyterian Church, and was highly interesting and instructive. His theme was the "Heavenly Rest," and he handled it with marked ability. At the conclusion of the sermon Rev. Mr. Converse, assistant editor of the Christian Observer, and Moderator of the Presbytery, propounded the usual questions to the new pastor and his congregation. He was followed by Rev. Mr. Fletcher, of the Duval Street Church, in a charge to the pastor, and Rev. John D. Thomas, chaplain at battery No. 4, delivered the charge to the people. The exercises of the evening closed with a prayer by Rev. Mr. Bartlett, of South Carolina. Altogether, the occasion was a solemn and impressive one, and will
est Point to erect there a "battle monument," upon which shall be inscribed the names of all officers of the regular army who shall have been killed or died of wounds received in the field during the present war. The expense of the monument is to be defrayed by a sliding scale of taxation upon the officers of the regular army, $21 for a Major-General down to $7 for a Lieutenant. Edward W Green, Postmaster of the town of Malden, Mass, has been arrested and confesses to having murdered Mr Converse, the Teller of the names Bank, and to have robbed the bank of an immense sum of money, part of which is still concealed. The confession is one of the most remarkable in the history of crime. Green, it appears, had always borne an excellent character previously, and has a wife and child to share his degradation. The New York Commercial shows that since the war the rise in gold is 57 per cent.; in iron, 125 per cent.; in coal, 108 per cent.; coffee, 200 per cent.; sugar, 200 per cent
