A crisis was therefore daily expected. It i Cha inc to be seen Al Rich party would obtain the Victory whether the Monarch would Triumph in the suppression of the people s liberties or the be Piile in the just humiliation of their Sovereign. The proceedings within the Chambers had been Iii raced by the utmost decorum and propriety and whilst the conduct Cabinet had been warmly denounced no personal reflections had been made upon the King. His majesty however had been greeted with unmistakable demonstrations of popular disapproval in the streets of the Metropolis. In Spain the elections for the new constituent chamber Are proceeding with but slight disturbance of the Public Tranquillity. The ministry anticipate that the result will to favourable to their continuance in Power. Espartero himself has already been elected fourteen times for As Many districts.

On thursday and Friday the missionary conference convened to devise Means for promoting increased sympathy and co operation amongst the various societies engaged in the great work of the evangelisation of the heat Ien held its sittings at Hall. In open ing the meeting allusion was made by the Chail Man to the idea first suggested by or. Duf5 that of holding a conference of All the missionary societies in great Britain for the free and fraternal interchange of opinions and information in relation to their common object. Tie chairman also stated that the hint then thrown out having been warmly responded to a meeting had been held last year upon the subject and Steps taken of which the i rc3cnfc conference avas the result. Various papers were read and an animated discussion ensued on the modes by which the essential Unity of aim of All evangelical missions might be made More clearly Manifest and Mutual sympathy and co operation secured amongst the various societies. The prevalent opinion seemed to be that it was not possible and hardly desirable to merge denominational action or to attempt the amalgamation of diff Erent societies and neither was it expedient to restrict particular bodies or the missionaries connected with them to particular countries or special Fields of labour. It was rather Felt that it must be by taking Mutual counsel together and in the promotion of a cordial and brotherly spirit both amongst the committees and Ollices of the societies at Homo and their agents in foreign countries that the Des Ralile consummation sought uni Ste attained. Special allusion was made to the meetings proposed to be held next year in Paris by our French Brethren and it was Ulii Bitely resolved that a committee be appointed to correspond with those gentlemen in the Hope that the meetings contemplated May prepare the Way for a general missionary conference at in future but riot Distant period. Some friends were probably disappointed that action of a More decided character was not immediately taken but it is obvious that Groat caution was requisite or the very object of the conference instead of being advanced might have been injured or Defeated. Nor is it less Clear that the Mere discussion of such a subject by such a body of men can hardly fail to be productive of advantageous results. The congregational Union has just held its sixteenth autumnal meeting in the towns of Newcastle Sunderland and Shields. Our readers arc aware that the objects of this association Are to promote Unity both of purpose and action amongst the Independent churches of Britain disclaiming the exorcise of anything resembling authority these ministers and delegates meet to devise Means for maintaining the purity of the stimulating both pastors and pc i a to increased cult arts for the propagation of Christian truth a,.i Well As for the diffusion of their own distinctive principles. On this As on former occasions the assemblies were Woll attended. The greatest interest was evinced in the opening address of the chairman the Pic v. Or. To ton blown in which Especial allusion was made to the various signs of the times and to the necessity for though fid and discriminating activity on the part of Christian men in their Elf Orts to Supply the spiritual wants of our age and country. The practical subjects that engaged the attention of the Union were the Home and colonial Mission the Irish evangelical society and the congregational Board of education. The pro Giss of these societies was reported and resolutions adopted expressive of a practical Ami Earnest sympathy with their proceedings and of a do termination to extend their operations. Archdeacon wili5i i Oil has Luv Ourel the Public with his reasons fur recalling his subscription to the Royal supremacy Relin Prish ing his preferment and becoming a Lay member of the these reasons As promulgated in the Archdeacon s inquiry into the principles of Church authority a Ould if consistently carried out at once enrol or Wilder Foyice amongst the avowed members of the Church of Home. On this Point there can be no mistake. The Archdeacon s views upon the subject Are As clearly and unequivocally stated As were his sentiments on the doctrine of the holy of his teaching on that question roman catholics themselves asserted that it established fully and without the slightest ambiguity the " sacred d ctr inc of the no less identical with their views Are those of this gentleman in respect of the Queen s supremacy. His opinions Are not merely those of tract Arians or High churchmen who quarrel with the Sovereign s headship of the Church simply because it holds the clergy in subjection to the state and imposes restraints on the arrogance of ecclesiastics and the domineering aspirations of clerical ambition. The Archdeacon of course coincides in these objections. But his views go much farther. He renounces the Queen s supremacy because he believes that that supremacy of right pertains to the Bishop of Home As the successor of St i Kateu 1 it seems scarcely credible that a Man still in name at least a protestant should not scrub tic thus boldly to tic to nitrous Dogma upon which arc based All the fallacious assumptions of the pay Acy.
