the progress of the principle arc taken from in Review a ly periodical devoted to the interests of the Baptist denomination of Christians and by Sears of the Newton Theological To be convinced of the fact that the democratic principle is making steady gress in the world we need only cast our eyes over Christendom We know of nothing which is receiving fuller tion by the events which arc brought to

of own interests and his own And understanding it show u growing boldness and dis- position to enforce its practice There is plainly a new and widening and current of free thought the before which oppression and sorts of abuses of power fall as if by a supernatural arm There is a wide spread conviction fastened upon the people that all are ly equal the rights of one are just as important as those of another that the of one is as dear as that of another liberty of one as precious and the con- science of one as sacred and inviolate as another this creed aro rapidly multiplying in every
