Religion in Washington. --The following letter from the Rev. J. W. Moseley, of Louisiana, who has recently visited Washington city, will be interesting to many readers: The religions condition of Washington has sadly deteriorated since the commencement of the war. The political preachers have become more political in their prayers and sermons. You could once hear the gospel in its purity, but he who attends the church of Dr. Sunderland, or Mr. Noble, (a chaplain in the Navy.) or Mr. Brown, who now fills the place of the Rev. Dr. Bocock, will hear tirades upon the wickedness of the South, and harangues upon the glory and power of the pious North. An Elder in Dr. G--'s church said to me--"religion is dead in the churches, our prayer meetings have been converted into Abolition conclaves, and the best class of attendants have ceased to come." Mr. Brown has disgusted his congregation, and the Government was compelled to give him a chaplaincy to save him from suffering. D

It met with the approbation of some, but Dr. John C. Smith remarked, if this was to be converted into a "secesh" meeting he would come no more, and his majesty has since kept at home to curse the South and invoke blessings on the head of President Lincoln.--Although I was once a teacher in his Sabbath school, and a member of his congregation, yet I was afraid to attend his church, lost he should recognise and report me to the Provost Marshal, and have me imprisoned. We do trust the prayers of the few righteous will be heard, and that He who is Head over all things to the Church will grant them and us the speedy blessings of peace. Christ does not delight in bloodshed and the horrors of war, therefore they and we may humbly draw nigh and earnestly pray that this dreadful sacrifice of human life be stayed.
