Religious Intelligence.

Rev. Stephen S. Morrill, who died recently at Danville, was born in the town where his death occurred, Dec. 24, 1831. He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1855, and studied divinity for two years at Andover, Mass., and afterward at Chicago, graduating at the latter place in 1859. He was ordained to the ministry May 12, 1859, and installed pastor of the Congregational church at Malden, Ill. Subsequently he was a hospital Chaplain in the United States army, and stationed at Mound county, Illinois. Returning to the active duty of the ministry, he was located at Hillsboro' and Henniker, N.H., and Harvard, Mass. He married Miss Ellen Batchelder, of London, N.H., July 28, 1859. Mr. Morrill was a person of scholarly and refined tastes, and his death will be no ordinary loss to his denomination.
