No Prayers for the President.

--It is a noteworthy fact, that in the Episcopal churches of this city on Sunday last, the usual prayer for ‘"the President of the United States and all others in authority, "’ was changed so as to harmonize with the altered political relations of the State. The change consisted in limiting the prayer simply to ‘"thy servants in authority." ’ The usual prayer for Congress, when in session, was also appropriately omitted. Such departures from an important portion of the liturgy of the Episcopal Church, made necessary by the melancholy times which have come upon us, fell on the ears of the worshippers at her altar with peculiar sadness.--Mobile Register.
