N. Y. Evening Post. A London correspondent -of the New York Journal Commerce, gives some account of a reform at present in prog ress in the : Church of England. The following are some of the changes con templated : : -i, : - ' ' The Book of Common Prayer is to re main intact, " eater and alterated ;" but the length of the services on Sunday and holidays, 'and, especially when the num ber of communicants is considerable, is to be remedied by a division of the ser vices. . This they recommesd to be done only by the joint consent of the Incum bent and the Bishop, who in this case may ' direct that either the order for the administration- of the Holy Communion, and that for , daily prayer, maybe used as a' separate service.. . They also recom- . mend a hew," authorized table Sf lessons to be substituted for those already used at-,erening prayer, whenever Jft be twice said on theaame day. L,They also recom mend a shorter 6rdcr of daily prayer to be Compiled from tho Book ef Common prayerj with prcBcribed lessons from Ho ly 7Soripturev to; be used on week day's at the joint discretion of the Incumbent -and the Bishop. t ' They also- recommend the following occasional services i " 1.

It was star ted to me' by my son J who was with the - fleet in Besika Bay, and who was allow ed., to go to Constantinopletv- There h saw a great deal of .the Turks, and all was going op in that city. . He was anx-- ious to get admission to' a mosque, but he and' his friends tfid not dare to go un--der peril! of their lives.j,;' He was agaia at Constantinople at the close of the year, and he, went with- a partyof thirty or' ' forty officers into 'nearly every mosque,. without let'or hindrance. All they were requested to do,'!waS to take off their shoes or boots before-entering, aa a mark' of respect. . , This is a remarkable proof of th'e abatement of prejudice, and the great effort producced by constant enter-, course with Europeans,' and it is for us ' to avail ourselves of this great opportu nity, and get something more lasting and better than the mere intercourse of cit iliration. ' I have heaid that the Sultan has given a large sum of mOney for the ' repair of the Protestant cemetry at Con- stantinople; and I understand, at this moment, that he has signified his inten- .' tion to give a large space of goound forr the erection of a Protestant church there.
