Advice to the New, as to the Church. Of a 4ate ISJo-Anfwer to Mr. Sach-el. The Diffenters the Aggrefforsi* ffoPaper-War. AnA more Fierce and AHacking fixce their Toleration. From &att!C&ap November the 18th, to ^atutoap November the 25th, 1704. Country-m. * � *His New Mafter of mine, I I know not what to make of JL him. I'm afraid thou art a ROGVE, Mafter JJThou pretends to continue on the Obfervator. And thou Writes Dire&ly againft him. Why then do'ft thou not fayfo That We might know where to have thee! This is worfe than the firit Rehearfal, which was call'd only Obfervator, and taken as fuch by many, who thought the Obfervator was Bamboozfd] But John How the Bookfeller's Name was not to it, as it is to Thine. Nor the Number of the Obfervator, as Thou.haft ~it. For it wou'd ha* been a little fort of a Lye. And maybe John How might have had a Ground of Attion, for Interloping upon his Copy, and putting his Name to what he did not Print. Haft thou ven -tur'd upon all this ? Or, is How too in the To Compleat the Volumes of his Obfervators, and' not let People think that the Paper is Falfn, till Ttttchin (hall be at Leifure again to go on with his own Work, as he has Given Publick Notice he Intends, of which I told thee inmyLaft. But what a Blunder will here be ? When Men come hereafter ttf Read the Obfervators (If any here-after will be at the Pains to Read them) And compare Pol'. 2. N. B4. and N..89. with Vol. 3. N. 70. Which was thyU&SATVRDAT's Obfervator} In the Two former (as in many others)lhe Afurder of �L Charles h is Juftify'd, and his Afos Trampl'd upon, withlithe Utmoft Infelenee. As lute wife of his Son K. James IF. Whom they Rejoice to have Di-vefted of all his Regalities, and made a Fugitive Upon Earth (like CAIN \) And fay, We had done it fooner, if we had had an opportunity of fa doing.So that theyDe -ftgn*d it, and Were About it, at the fame Time that they Fill'd bis Ears with their Fulfome ADDRESSES of Perpetual LOTALtt, and Godly S1NCERITT, Purfuant to their Conflant PRACTICE and PRINCIPLES, they took GOD to Witnefs! And in the faid Obfervators they Triumph and InfultJipoa what they Scornfully call the DE-COLLATION, and DE-TRVNCATIONof his Royal Father; And compare it with his ABDICATION! But in the.faid Obfervators%Vo\. 3.N. 70. There is a fevere Reprehenfion againft the Vilifying of Princes, and Trampling upon their efpecially of thefe Two before Nam'd, of whom the Fir ft is call'd a Great Good King, and a Martyr, of Pious Memory. And that the Name of his Son, K. II* to be BLESSED among Vs. Nay, more than all this, the fame Obfervator, N. 70. Makes �00* W Work with the whole REVVBLICAN Foundation, and the Oil* of all the Volumes of the Obfervators, by overthrowing the fuppos'd Original and Radical Power of the People, in Erecting of Government, and that the Royal Authority is Deriv'd from Them, and by Confent, conferred upon their Soveraigns. That God is no more Author of theSupream, than of Subordinate Power; and that De� minion which is V0fd and Vnjuft, while it remains Dominion, Claims God for its Donor, as much as that which is Legal and Hereditary. That Soveraignty and Power being by Conveyance from the People, are Condi" tional and Proportioned according as , the Community pleafe to Confer the Truft* That there may be a Power Co-ordinate, or Collateral to that of the Soveraigns and that, in fome Cafes, the Soveraign is Subordinate to the People, and may be Refifted and Opposd by Violence, Force and Arms. All thefe Tenets he Condemns as* Seditious, and Tending to Ccnfufton, as Contrary to the Practice of the Beft and Ancient Chriftians^ and contrary to found Reafm, deduced from Nature, and the �eft Inftitutions of Policy and Government. Nay, he calls all thefe POPISH Principles, and> fays, It is a Thoufand Pities that fuch Men as Pretend fo much Zeal againft POPERT, fhouyd Join with PA* PISTS .in the worfi, at leaft, the tnoft Pernicious t)ollrines; but ten Thoufand times more Pity it it^ That the Reformed Proteftant Rtligion ftaou1 d J a fir by fuch Men, and that good ENGLISH Prot eft ants fh$u*d be Charg'd with thefe things in after Ages. Then he Explains that Vulgar Maxim of Salus Populi Suprema Lex efto, from the Republican Pretence of making the PEOPLE Judges of it, who, he fays- Are mo ft of all Vnftt for Judging, concerning the Prefervation of Church or State. And he makes the Salus Regis the Safety of the King, to be the Safety of the People. For that* as he Concludes, fpeakmgof herprefent Majefty, It is Impofftble the Sub jell can have Peace or Safety, where the Soveraign. and her Prerogative are Weakened, fo that {he cannot Command and Protect. Now, Mafter^ That is Cafandra all over ! And for faying of thefe things my Former Mafter fent that Slut to the Dmcking-Stool, and call'd all this. Billings-Gate in Her. Nay, he Condemn'd her to the Gallows, and her pooh to the Flames. He cou^d, have no Patience with her / And art Thou his Curate? He has Difown'd thee Already, and given Advertifement of ,it in his own BROTHER'S Paper, call'd tht Flying Poft. I long to know how he'll Handle thee, when he Refumeshis own Office again, after a little Law-Work is over! Thou'llt e'en be fent to bear Caffandxa Company /� Unlefs it be for thy Notion of a Church, which is No Church, of which I told thee in my Laft. In which, if thou wiltClear thy felf, I may Afford thee my Company fometinaes upon Reafonable Terms. For it feems to me as Impoffible for any Country to Profcfs a Religion, without having iome Church �-STAB LISH^D, at for 2. State to fubfift without * Government ESTABLISHED. And the Church (fo now let me call it, for I fpeak not of True or Falfe) which was Eftablipd among the Heathen, as well as among the Jews and Chriftians, was Always a Part of the State^ and the Principal Part of U. And all Contravenfion to the Churchy was Reckon'd an ;
