A P reacher W anted and his Q ualifications .—A Western corres pondent of the New York Independ. ent, in giving an account of the Congregational Churches visited or heard from in the course of his pil grimage, speaks of the growing de mand for fresh young ministers. The old ones have outlived their day, and, it might be added, the piety of their congregations. One of these writes : "Tell Brother be should be looking for another preacher for bis Church. They have a citified Church and want a citified minister a young, good looking man, of superior talents, able to interest the class that never felt any interest in sacred things, and turn back all the old back sliders that were brought in by the furnace heat of a protracted meeting, and sprung back as soon as they get cold. They want an eloquent man, who can throw off a sermon at a spirit, without study ; an unmarried man preferred, if not engaged." A bolition of the P oll T ax.— The poll tax instituted by Gen. Banks in this State, and levied upon freed men and all who employed them, says the Picayune, was copied in Mississippi. a part of Louisiana is also under charge of the Assistant Commissioner of Mississippi, who by the following order abolishes it there. We hope Gen. Fullerton will ex tend this order to the rest of Louisi ana, especially the latter clause, which prohibits the levying of any tax by the officers and agents of the bureau : VicOBO*«, Miss.,Oct. 30, 1864. The poll tax levied by General Order* No. 34, Headquarter* Department of Mis «ifmippi, and afterwards approved by tbe Commission of Freedraen's Bureau, at Washington, D.
