We have placed this caption to the following documents which we Lay before our readers in order to Shew them the value of the testimony upon which our religious editors at this Side of the Atlantic predicate the downfall of our Church in Europe especially in France. It will be recollected that some months since we were triumphantly informed that a body of ten thousand priests Hod left the Church in France and made n new religion for themselves and the vast body of their adherents. To then stated to our readers that the whole account was a delusion that there was no new schism hut that an Effort was made by the wretched remnant of the old constitutional schismatic clergy to organize themselves into a Church. We now publish two documents such As Seldom fall into our hands Viz. Avowal from the same Quarter that the original statement of their informants was grossly we know from our own sources that this is generally the Case in All such exhibitions but we so very Seldom find it acknowledged that we Are led to Hope our editors begin to feel the necessity of being a Little cautious How they place great Confidence in their foreign correspondents or in the wholesome assertions of tho papers which they have heretofore relied upon. From the London evangelical Magazine. State of France. We deeply regret to state from authority which we cannot doubt that . Lii us s circular which appeared on the last Page of the chronicle for february relative to certain French priests was by far too highly coloured and was by to Means justified by the facts of the Case though we attribute to the excellent individual whose name was attached to the circular nothing inconsistent with the most perfect love of truth lie wrote agreeably to Llic information he had received but this information Al nil was very inaccurate. It is indeed certain that Many pleasing facilities have been of late afforded in France fur the diffusion of divine truth and that among persons of different orders of society in Paris an inclination has been manifested to assimilate More nearly to the pro 1 sessions and Mode of worship w hich prevailed among the primitive christians. It is also True that a considerable number of Lomish priests have professed to he dissatisfied with Sonc parts of the Constitution and ceremonies of the Catholic Church but still nothing appears to have occurred in France to warrant the Broad statements contained in the circular. We should not have thought it necessary to make these remarks in reference to a document which was in print and which was circulated very widely in private before it reached us did we not fear that our insertion of it Muy Lead some to conclude that we1 pledged ourselves for its truth which was by no Means the Case. Indeed we had no Opportunity of verifying its statements but thought it wrong to keep Back from the Public an article of intelligence which Many he lived to be Correct and the truth of w hich we had no where heard impugned. After a As one of the statements of that document is of n personal nature to deem it proper to observe that m Dupin. Who in referred to. Unido no Inch application on behalf of the town of Ivre to a hat attributed to him in the circular. All there is much to encourage in the moral movements which arc now taking place in France and we earnestly implore that her present agitations and changes May Issue in her Morai political and religious improvement. Let the whole Christian world unite in hearing her Best interests on their hearts and especially in imploring that those within her own dominions w to Are alive to its spiritual welfare May be blessed with that special w Wisdom and Grace which her present critical situation so eminently requires. Extract of a letter from the Rev. Colant Nee. A French calvinist minister to the general Assembly of the presbyterian Church of the v. S of America dated a a leu Al . 18, 183. A i doubt not dear Brethren that you will learn with As much Joy As interest that a religious move input most favourable to the gospel begins to he Manifest among the catholics also of this kingdom. A Large number of them have separated themselves forever from the Lomish Church. Some have entered into our communion and others Liao formed tho now a a French Catholic Church a not paid by the stale. Among the latter there Are some converted priests. At first there were but about ten ecclesiastics one of whom was a curate who served the papists of one of Iny parishes and whom i believe to be truly renewed by the Ilov spirit. Alter a Little while about fifty More priests joined the others to establish the principles of their new Church. Their first step was to shake off the Yoke of the Pope and of their Bishops to constitute themselves an Independent Church to celebrate worship in French and by Means of the press to offer to serve gratuitously those communes which would receive them and adopt their principles. This did Well. Their voice was echoed in France. Demands were made upon them for clergymen even from within the pyrenees and they Are already unable to furnish As Many As Are asked for so
