He gave account of the Rise of the various inches of the City and a grief glance at past of the first Church. There had tin in this charge seven remarkable re Ais since 1831. Two churches had been in Aniced from this one since 18s7, and al Hough there had been a Large number of ovals and deaths yet now there were Guty members More than in 1837.

One can Well suppose that one so astute and cunning and placed in such difficulties what Between the devotee impress the Pope and the clergy and the reproaches if not the threats of his old friends the Carbonari of Italy an oath awful in its character binding his soul and its violation exposing him to a Dagger As deadly As would have been that of Omni had it reached his heart that his mind is Oft distracted. England treats him with coldness if not contempt her press accuses him of basest selfishness and Liberal Europe forgets All that he has done in their anger at his neglecting what he ought to do. France itself is dissatisfied and inasmuch As there is a. Financial disaster there what could galvanize an artificial life and Prosperity like the Prospect of another War and a loan on its Hank in Small sums to which As in 1859�?the people would Rush in crowds and at once fill the Treasury f and then the French army will not remain quiet for Ever. What will he do with it Quot is the question asked about this army by our Clever and Able weekly the London review. If there were a general War with Germany Russia ? and Austria on the one Side and France and Italy on the other it would thoroughly change the face of things and give Napoleon the Long coveted Opportunity of crossing the King of Prussia has taken some pains to show that when he spoke of his receiving his Crown a a from god a he did not mean to endorse the usual blasphemy of despots. He avows that he spoke in a spirit of humility and under a deep conviction both of his responsibility and of his dependence on the almighty. He. Is not a very clearheaded individual but is honest and upright. He says he a hates All extremes a a revolution on the one hand Ultra conservatism on the other. In proof of his Liberal tendencies his Cabinet has just issued programme of measures which will largely enfranchise the people and inevitably reduce the Power of the Nobles and the tory landholders. She King it was supposed had entered into a secret and perilous Paet with Napoleon but that is not the ease. Even the treaty of Commerce so much talked of in France and which was to bring the two together is not Likely to be carried out and Tkv to from the bases proposed by Prussia being not acceptable to France. On the other hand the King of Prussia does not. As was reported meet Tim i Joseph of Austria in confidential colloquy. Prussia Aims to be at the head of Germany an Empire and not a. Kingdom. Austria hates and fears heir and some smaller principalities and a states support her views. But Austria never can oppose a successful resistance to Prussia which has the grand advantage of being a protestant Power. Austria indeed Aims at iving her Motley provinces and Peoples government but this after All will be almost a name and As to Hungary the last act but one of a base and barbarous policy has now been enacted by the abolition of ail local hungarian authority at Perth and the placing of the people under military Law. And so the emperor writes an autograph letter containing language Fri Rich he will one Day be made to reckon for. He pleads of course the cause of a a Arder a treads Down the old Constitution of Hungary under his Iron Heel a a As the convocation of the hungarian diet in a constitutional Dieb seems impracticable until order is reestablished All the existing authorities in the comitts districts and companies Are abolished and count Forsack is ordered to select persons who will replace them. All person charged with crimes against Public order and safety she in by tried by military tribunals. It is now announced that Garibaldi takes a marked step in opposition to Mazzi and others who would precipitate a contest with Austria. He urges the continued armament of Italy. Oue of the greatest obstacles to this is found in the Fin an i 1 condition of the new kingdom. There has been for several years an enormous expenditure Many extravagant contracts As to Public works and above All go 0 there has been the. Waste of War in Days past and the enormous expense to which put by the insurrectionary condition of the neapolitan territory by reason of Bour Bonish plots and brigand expeditions prepared at Rome. Besides this the Southern italians detest the idea of Turin becoming the capital of Italy and have a hereditary contempt of the piedmontese the correspondents journals write discouraging on this Point. Nevertheless when Rome becomes Italy a capital All will be put right. Ireland presents a eurious spectacle at this moment in connexion with the bringing Home from California of the remains of Terrene s Bellas Mcmanus. He joined Bmith of Brien in his ridiculous and abortive attempt at insurrection in 1848. Was found guilty of High treason and his sentence was commute Flito transportation. He has lately died and some to maoists from that District resolved to bring borne his body. When it reached Cork the popish people followed the remains through the streets in Long procession. But no priest was visible no Romish Chapel was open to save even a night s resting place to Tho Corpse on its Way to Dublin. And in the capital itself the Sameey blk Sia Stival frown rested withering by on the funeral of one whom or. Machale secretly hates and ecclesiastic ally opposes As far. As possible. And so father Lavelle. One of the Mayo priests raises Irish Ulula Tus Over Macmanus. Coupled with a lamentation Over the conduct of the Cork and Dublin priests. Quot alas and alas i a a he says. A a that m Ireland there should be a second sentiment on his claims to a a tin a a Moho Ding and a it Iriondo gratitude. Good god Macmu offs denied a momentary resting place in any in Ireland of Why not have Broi Iglitz those sacred remains to the Fane of Jarlath. The Patriot died in peace with All except the enemy of All the cruel oppressor1 of his dear native la Ndu a that is to say England which might have hanged and did not which might have Kep him in prison and did to to. A a say it Malachi and st. Lawrence of Toole a Are also invoked and then cries priest Lavelle a a of Ireland Ireland thou fallen a finally he declares that a he will never enter Dublin without re sewing on the grave of Mcmanus a vow of hatred to England a a thy enemy and mine and the enemy of our Creed our country and our holy poor celtic portion of it is always lavishing its tears sympathy and admiration on objects rather mediocre at the Best As to value. Thus not Long since a female adventurer mrs. Yelverton was a popular idol and later still there was quite a furore in connexion with the trial of a Cabman who had assaulted a Young lady in a Gross manner and who was Eon viewed and sentenced to two years imprisonment. Popish feeling had in both cases some influence while or. Whiteside a protestant was the counsel his client mrs. Yelverton was a a a Pervert Quot to Rome and had lived in a Convent at Smyrna and because Curran the Cabman was a romanism he found subscriptions coming in from Cabman and false swearing in abundance in order if possible to free him from the he has of the Law. For his atrocious wickedness toward the protestant miss Jolly. Nay even or. Justice of Brien who when attorney general five or six years ago heard vehement and violent at a gathering in the Dublin Rotunda in reference to the proposed Bill for the inspection of Nunn eries in that spirit of a True papist professed to have no opinion at All about the evidence and when the prisoner was found guilty and he Wai compelled to pass sentence took care not to express his agreement with the jury. Services in Halls and theatres Are resumed. I was engaged in one of these on the evening of last lords Day at the Pavilion theatre Whitechapel Road. Half an hour before the appointed time a great crowd had gathered in front of the main Entrance and afterwards a vast Assembly occupied the House. The spectacle was most impressive and solemnizing. Nearly All joined in the hymns that were Sung there was an affecting silence during the offering of prayer and the Reading of the scriptures and a letter behaved and More attentive congregation i never addressed. The right kind too of people were present. Jews and gentiles Rich and. Poor old and Young boys and girls men an d women some with children in Aims a the me i forming a decided majority. These services More prize than Ever by to it London masses have been followed by ascertained results of the most Gratifying character and afford Opportunity to multitudes who wi7z hoi enter Ordinary places of worship but whose rags and wretchedness find Fellowship As it were in Kindred poverty All around in that a a pit or in those galleries to listen to the words of eternal life. As a whole the evangelical body Church and nonconformist hold the Sway in this matter. Neither to rotarians nor Irvi gites neither papists nor negative theologians have a message for the a a common people a a a the a a priest and the Church a on the one hand the hiding of the Cross and the ignoring of a True atoning sacrifice to meet the claimant accusations of guilty conscience on the other a neither of these so called teachers will do for the perishing and the poor. Rationalism has received a Check and rebuke in the judgment which has just been delivered by or Lus Bigton in the Arches ecclesiastical court. A suit was instituted some time since by the Bishop of Winchester in whose diocese the Rev. Or. Heath held a living of account of the printing and publication of a a sermons on important subjects a parts of which were alleged to contain doctrines repugnant to the articles of religion in violation of the statute of Elizabeth and in derogation of the Book of common prayer. Clergymen on their ordination their a a assent and consent a to the articles of religion and to the Book of common prayer. Or. Lushington is a Fine specimen of a Jurist and also a a Good English gentleman All of the Olden time a he is about eighty years of age. His intellect is remarkably Clear and As the arguments on the Case of or. Heath and con., were finished in june last he has taken advantage of the lawyers a a Long vacation a and has now come Lorth with an elaborate judgment. He referred in the outset to the much that had been said about Paley a idea of subscription to the thirty nine articles As a a articles of peace a and said that disquisition of this character afforded no assistance to a court of Justice. Its business is to examine the doctrines and see whether they Are in accordance with the articles and the prayer Book. He next adverted to the principles which should guide the court in All alleged cases of false doctrines and fell the general principles established by the privy Council the final Appeal in ecclesia steal cases on the celebrated Gorham Case which had been approved by two archbishops. There it had been Laid Down by lord Langdale that a in an Endeavor to ascertain the True meaning and effect of the articles form Laries and rubrics we must by no Means intentionally swerve from the old established rules of construction or depart from the principles which have received the Sanction and approbation of the most Learned persons in times past As being on the whole the Best calculated to determine the True meaning of the document to be examined. If these principles were not adhered to All the rights both spiritual and temporal of her majesty a subjects would be the judge admitted that considerable latitude had been allowed in times past to divines of different schools in the English Church but these matters of difference did not Bear on the present Case. Justification by Faich in the merits of Christ As affirmed in the 11th article was emphatically denied by or. Heath. In defining the meaning of that article or. Lushington said a first i hold with Bishop Burnet that what by justification was meant is being received into the favor of god secondly that the Merit of our b Vigour is the great cause of that reception thirdly and what on the present occasion was perhaps most important that the person so to be received must have Faith in the redemption of Jesus Christ. It must be Oto Ouw Faith a personal Faith. The words a a we justified by Faith Only a mean that such personal Faith is indispensable and that without it there can be no justification. The essence of the 11th article is Faith in the redeemer s merits in the. Person to be justified Quot All this clears the Way for giving an a Feu rate account of what or Heath s hexes really is. But May l not pause Herb arid refer for a moment to the awful perversion in tract no 90 the production indeed of or Newman but really endorsed by .sqin.e, at least who remain in the English Church a unchallenged wit regard to this vital matter of the a sinner before god. Nay is not the doctrine of baptismal regeneration. Made by All High Church divines a sine qua. Non thus causing them to Lull their unconverted hearers the mass of them Rin a death like spiritual torpor destroying the distinction Bec weep the converted and unconverted in their preaching and in a word putting sacramental Grace both in baptism and the eucharist coupled with their doings As the ground of anal acceptance with god Faith. A direct personal Faith in the merits of Jmst ignored How i ask can these men be considered As giving their a a assent and consent to that Noble 11th article a a we Are accounted righteous before god Only for the ment of our lord. And Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith and not for our own works or deserving. Wherefore that we Are justified by Faith Only is Anost wholesome doctrine and full of 1 but now let us see what or. Heaths special heresy is. It actually substitutes Christ s the father for the sinners Faith ill Christ himself a when says he a i talk of justification by Faith i mean justification by our Saviour s Trust in the father. The Saviour still trusts m our father As he always did he still has Faith and his Faith still works by love he still believes that he can put the world right and i believe so too a no wonder that or Lushington should say a a i am under the painful necessity of declaring that these doctrines cannot be reconciled with the Plain grammatical sense of the 11th Arti ele. I think that they Are contrary and repugnant thereto and i must pronounce the judge went on to refer to passages in the a sermons in which is he consid ered the forgiveness of sins a As set Forth in the apostles Creed and doctrines were taught contrary to the Athanasian and nicene Creed and violating the 6th, .10th, 11th, and 31st articles. Ihus at Page 117 of the a a sermons it is said a the More 1 study the Bible for myself the More astounding i find it How Many of the most modern phrases of modern theology have been foisted in without Sanction from the All Sufficing record of our religion. On after another no less than about Twenty ideas or phrases such As guilt of sin paying a penalty going to heaven going to hell in mortal qty of the soul Sah faction imputed righteousness appropriating the work of Christ necessary to salvation a and Many others have vanished from my system be cause As a minister of Christ studying these matters professionally i see them to be phrases and ideas not Only absent from scripture but darkening and confusing the clearest of the otherwise most intelligible and comforting statements of holy writ on this or. Lushington observes a now what says the second article ? that our Saviour died to reconcile us to the father and to be a sacrificed not Only for original guilt but also for the actual sins of men-1 really cannot comprehend How any intelligible meaning could be affixed to his article if a guilt of so is to be removed from Ali Christian doctrine. I cannot conceive the idea of actual sin without there being guilt of sin. I will not dwell on other expressions said to be repugnant to the creeds i View the whole of the passage a.ton., and leg Xvi it. I think the words used contain a doctrine if it is to be so called utterly irreconcilable with the creeds. A a the 31st article is next to be cd mid ered. Or. Heath dismisses from his system the immortality of the a jul so Tiff in Tion imputed righteousness is darkening and confusing. Now the 31st article says g of Christ was a perfect satisfaction for All the sins of the world. To deny satisfaction altogether whatever May be its meaning As mr.1 Heath has done cannot be Laken in any other sense than a denial of the Worth of the article a a i am compelled by a sense of duty to declare that i have no other alternative but to pronounce a judgment Eon Deming or. Heath As guilty of the charges preferred against a the judge wound up As Folly ass a a before concluding i think it right to explain Why i done to advert to. The Many authorities which the Zeal and learning of counsel have produced. My reason is this that in my judgment not one of these authorities does that which was required in their Case namely show that Somaf divine of Eminence has held without reproach from ecclesiastical authority doctrines in substance the same As those which or. Heath has promulgated. Whatever opinions May have been held in the vast Field of polemical divinity find none which can support or Heath or justify him. In the Gorham Case the judicial committee had the advantage of being Able to quote in support of their judgment and in justification of or. Gorham passages from the writings of divines of tie highest authority. A a i cannot conclude without observing that i am Well aware of the fallibility of my own opinion and especially in so Peculiar a Case As the present but 1 have endeavoured first to make Clear the principles which i intended should govern me and secondly to show plainly How i apply those principles to the Case before me. If i have erred in either particular the judgment of the Superior court me. It May be however that Many will think that though legally right this judgment Recognises too severe restrictions on the clergy and shuts the door against inquiry and disquisition which might tend to elucidate the truth. Now even if this were soft is not for a court of Justice to open a door which the legislature has shut. It is contrary to All sound principles for a court to seek As has been formally done by some judges ingenious subterfuges to the Law and that upon a notion of its Power to discover what is Best and most convenient. Us ohm a course is. I1 think not Only contrary to principle but would be most injurious in its effects. For All such attempts to wrest the Law according to supposed consequences invariably tend to postpone a remedy if there be a real evil. If there he Bonds which press heavily on the clergy As to which i give no opt do on i repeat that the legislature imposes them and the legislature alone can Loose them a pronounce against or time was Given by the court to give or. Heath Opportunity of he has also Power to Appeal to the privy Council. A 1 think it will be a pleasant and invigorating thing f minister al readers to a read an analysis of or ims Hington a judgment and besides that i am justified in dwelling on it Beca Iise it Awni ens so Many thoughts and few Lings in Connexions with the present condition of that a extraordinary a a composite and Compromise a the Church of England. We Are reminded by or. Lushington of the decision in. The Gorham Case by which it was settled that those who held that infant baptism was always and by re Genera Tiou. And those. Who denounced this As a deadly heresy were alike Good churchmen 1, the record Ever since has ceased its groaning be Ause the ecclesiastical courts have pronounced1 what it he a a ate a is land as1 for the evangelical clergy As a body think to be thought of. A and thus the Liying and the dead the Blind and the seeing the halt and the erect and vigorous travellers Are All elassed1 together. A next while or. Mcnaught of Liverpool has resigned his charge Are there not others who hold doctrines almost if not More rationalistic than he it is cheering to find this Heath heresy put Down although it-bears1 on the face of it Stich Absurdity that few will embrace it. But after All in the denial of the�-1 guilt of sin paying a penalty satisfaction propitiation ,&c., we see that the current of his thoughts run precisely m the same Channel with those of the a essayists nay that professor to wet to and even Canon Stanley Are by no Means free from the charge of undermining these grand old truths. 1 Etc numbers of this class Ever increasing will Remata unscathed and untried and thus the vitals of the National Church will continue to be preyed upon by her own children. I have already noticed the tra Tanan extreme and there has been a recent example of it where a new Bishop about to go to the it Sandwich islands let the american missionaries look out has been taking part in Semi popish and pub elite Mumme Ries in connexion with the consecration of a. New Church m the same diocese of the same Bishop of Winchester who has pros Eluted the . Heath. The Bishop inn evangelical but see his weak less and the.

Scarcely any attempt m3 made before the beginning of the pres est Century and few of the existing institutions Are More than ten years old. If we have been later in beginning this department of philanthropy we should now work All the More Vigo Rosiy to make up our leeway. Former generations of the imbecile were permitted to grow up corrupt and corrupting hurting themselves and shocking the passengers on the Public highways. Of late years a a veil. Has been drawn1 decently Over that open sore by the removal of those workhouses Andot ier phases of Sherter. This though an improvement on the barbarous practice of the past is Oul the a half and that the lower half of our duty i la i Switzerland Franca England and. Also to borne extent in Scotland As Well As in our , systematic efforts have of late years been made with an encouraging measure of Success for the mental and non to training of imbecile children. A in one of our states whose ease is pot worse tap that of other countries but Only More accurately known there Are 1, 087 idiots in a Gross population of1,225, 000, which gives the proportion it of about one in a thousand and this is exclusive of 2,632 persons who same. Is one person of either unsound or feeble mind to it every 302 of the general population. In Scotland As nearly As can be ascertained1, there Are about 2,236 imbeciles and of these about 600 Are of an age suitable for being admitted into educational institutions. We largely know any greater luxury to a tender and pure mind than the history of some of these eases. If doing Good in Ordinary forms be to a Christian like meat and drink the successful introduction of these helpless children to a measure of civilized habit and intellectual Light and moral purity and Christian Hope is like a cordial to the spirit both Sweet and restoring. Reader have you Ever when somewhat weary sat Down to rest on a Stone by the Wayside in a warm summer Day ? and As you mused Happy and half dreamy have you observed a Flower at your feet much crashed by a atone that had accidentally fallen upon it while it was in Bud struggling ineffectually to escape from the pressure twisting its body and crushing its petals in the Effort ? you stretched out your hand of course and lifted off Tho Stone and saw the flowered Spring up and look into a our face As if it were glad and grateful. When you Rose and resumed your journey ruminating on what you had done you Felt happier a because of doing it. A j the spirit of these imbeciles were Sweet Flowers a Bud and some fall in infancy or some Boorman outgrowth about the brain has Lam there a dead weight and crushed them As the Stone crushed the wild Flower on the i Wayside. The benevolent Are trying to lift the pressure off and so enable these immortal Floweres Ere it be too late to open their bosoms to the Light. A go and help them that you May enjoy with them the Peculiar Delight of helping these helpless Little ones. Jesus loved to relieve them so should Way and Ian a Way. God says seek be first the kingdom of god and his righteousness and All these earthly things shall be added unto you. / / Man says seek first worldly wealth and Fame and Power j religion you can get on a dying a bed. God says open thy Mouth sideband i will fill it. Man says let prayer go and work for what you want. God says give Aud it shall be Given unto you Good measure pressed Down and shaken together and running Over shall men give into your bosoms. Man says Charity begins at lib me. Why give to others that for which you have toiled so hard your own family May want it. God says whatsoever be would that men should do to you do be even so to them. Man says my own interests first. God says Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon Earth but Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. A Man says make sure your worldly treasures. Heaven is a Long Way off. God says Whoso hath this worlds goods and seeth his brother have need and shut Teth up his bowels of compassion from him How dwell eth the love of god in him Man says what guarantee have i if i give my earnings to the poor that i shall not come to want myself god says there is that scatter eth and yet increase eth. Man says it is Only by saving and hoarding what you have that it will increase. A. Reader what says your conscience ? is not gods Way better than Many a ? this word which is used in the psalms seventy four times and thrice in the prophecy of Habakkuk must have some significant meaning and yet there seems to be much doubt in reference to the matter. It is a hebrew word which the translators have lefts they found it because they could not agree its to its meaning. The targum and in st of the jewish commentators give to it the word the meaning of eternally forever. The voice of the septuagint translation appears to have regarded it As a musical or rhythmical note. Herner regards it As indicating a change of tone Matheson As a Inu Sical note equivalent perhaps to the word repeat. According to Luther and others it is equivalent to the exclamation silence Nesenius say Selah Means a a let the instruments play and the singers Woofer regards it As equivalent to sur sum Corda up my soul Sommer after examining All the seventy four passages in which the word occurs recognizes in every Case a a an actual Appeal or summons to Jehovah they Are Calls for Aid and prayer to be heard expressed either with entire directness or if not in the imperative a hear Jehovah a and the like still Earnest addresses to god that he would remember and hear a Etc. The word itself he regards As indicating a blast of trumpets by the priest. Selah itself he thinks is an abridged expression used for Higgason indicating the sound of the stringed instruments and Selah a vigorous blast of trumpets. Some think the word Marks the beginning of a new sentence or a new measure of verses and others that it joins what follows to that which goes before and shows that what has been said deserves always to be remembered. Some have thought Selah showed the cessation of the actual inspiration of the psalmist and others that it is simply a note to indicate. The Elevation of the voice still others that it is equivalent to a a amen a a a be it so a or a a let it .

It always Lowers professing christians in the estimation of their fellow men and invariably produces trouble and difficulty in the Church. 5. Those who engage in it have themselves doubts of its propriety. No one could reconcile it with his conscience to participate in a dance on saturday night and then commune at the lords supper on the following Sabbath a morning or Pray for the Blessing of god in it. 6. The consciences Oft weaker Brethren for whom Christ died Are always wounded when any of the members of the Church participate in the dance.

Xiv. A Western . Havelock a Fraye tent. Many people excuse themselves from gods service a for want of a time. The a apprentice does the school boy in the hurry of term time does the Man at his workshop the Mother with her Large family around her. General Havelock that distinguished general in India whose Wisdom and bravery did so much to pub a Stop to the cruel and bloody Mutiny Oft the sepoy never made this excuse to get rid of the service of his heavenly father. He had time among All the hurry and worry of Camp life to make the business of religion he first business. He found time. He did not believe that god Ever put men in posts where they could not serve him. He was a Man of prayer and he found time to Pray not Only to Pray by himself but with his men. Among his Camp baggage was a praying tent the largest one he had and this he used to pitch at the stations and hold prayer meetings in it and read the precious word of god to his soldiers. He Well knew if there was a class of men in the world that needed the comforts and help of the lord Jesus Christ it was soldiers. And Many a poor Soldier found How Superior was a heavenly service Over anything the Queen of England could offer. In the hurried and awful marches which Gen. Havelock and his regiments were forced to make in the late War he arose two hours before his men in order to have time to Pray. If they were to March at six of clock in the morning he was up at tour. If the Camp was to break up at four he was up at two. He believed there was time for the business of religion. And the papers Tell us there were no soldiers so a rempt and faithful in duty so reliable in those dreadful times As Gen. Havelock and his praying regiments. Reconciliation. Robert Hall and Charles Simeon Are Well known among the lights of the evangelical interest in England in the Days when it Cost something to be faithful to spiritual truth. These two servants of Christ the former a Baptist and the latter of the established Church both living at Cambridge formed a warm Friendship for each other. In time however a breach was made which grew so great that they refused even to speak to each other. A reconciliation was at length effected by the Rev. John Owen Secretary of the British and foreign Bible society whose memory is still fragrant in the English churches. The Means used was the following plan adopted after several others had been tried in vain. He wrote and left at the House of each these lines a a How rare that task a prosperous Issue finds which seeks to reconcile discordant minds How Mady scruples Rise at passions touch this yields too Little and that asks too much each wishes each with others eyes to see and Many sinners can to make two agree what mediation then the Saviour showed who singly reconciled us All to god a it is said that upon receiving the lines each minister left his residence to seek the other and that they met in the Street where a perfect reconciliation took to die Happy.
