We are informed tbat this statement Is an error. It is the custom in all Catholic Churches In this country to repeat every Sunday the prayer for tbe President of the United States, for Congre*s, for tbe Governors of States, and local magistrates and rulers, and for tbe citizens generally, and tbere has been no change at all In this respect, except a recent occasional interpolation of the words "His Honor the Mayor of this city" into tbe above piayer, In the church alluded to. We are sure that no member of tb's community will deny that mann* * ' ?- - ?' * ' " ucuci ii a m luujeci lor prayer, or will quarrel with Father VV hite for putting la a special lick" for that official's redemption. The " States" alleges also that there 1( trouble in the Bridge street Presbyterian Church, in Georgetown, in co-isequence of the pastor, Rev Mr Uoc?x k, Laving lucluded the President and Vice President of the Southern Confederacy in his prayers for our own Chief Magistrate. J*ome of his congregation thought that there was 110 special ne??l for him to go out of bis way to this extent, and the upshot of the matter has b?en the a'-ceptance by the church of .Mr. Bocork's resignation. That divine can, however, cite the precedent of the cautious chap who prayed "Good l.ord,and good Devil," on the ground that there was 110 telling into whose hands he might fall.

Editor: The "States and Union" of yesterday contained a paragraph setting forth that the uaual prayer for the P real dent of the United States had been omitted from the aervlce in St. Matthew s (Catholic) Church for several Sabbaths (Sundays) past. As this statement Is calculated to Involve the pastor and congregation of that church In a quasi acquiescence with the accession movements at the South, and a deliberate insult to the Chief Maglstrate and people of the United States. I called Immediately on Father White (the pastor) to know If there was any foundation for the statement. He at once pronounced the assertion false In every partloular, and felt Indignant at so wanton a perversion of truth. Upon his authority, which he will also do over hia own name In to-morrow's "National Intelligencer," I pronounce the state merit or tbe "States and Union" a mischievous r-anard. * Thomas Fits a.m. Thosk In waut of gas fixtures, Ac , should not rail to rail upon Dove &.
