Serricea Other Keligloaa Matters.
Kt. Kev. Alexander Burgess, bishop
of the Episcopal diocese of Quincy,
was present at tne services at Jnnuv
church yesterday, preaching morn
ing and evening. Both discourses
voiced the deep thought and those
beautiful and impressive sentiments
which carry to the heart and soul.
and which are characteristic of the
learned divine. Bishop Burgess is
a man of commanding presence, his
powerful ana venerable appearance
always lending appropriate litness to
l lie dignity ol the exalted station he
occupies in the church. He speaks
extemporaneously, selecting his text
very frequently apparently to suit
the occasion and after he has en
tered the chancel, and he speaks
with measured deliberation and tone.
He has a kindly voice of perfect mod
ulation and his manner aud presence
always leave a good impression on
the people of his church aod all
who hear him.

sized audience. Mr. Flint seems to
experience no difficulty in Svecgaliz-
ng the majority 01 those volunteer

about their brows. He furnishes a
laughable entertainment and is ably
assisted in the work by his daughter,
Miss Marina Flint.

tragedian, is to appear at the liurtis
this evening in the romantic drama,
