PREFACE.

Ar the conclusion of our last volume.we wrote in a cheerful and a happy strain. Since then great and grievous wrong has been done to our Church. It has been declared that the Church of England has, or may permit, two contrary doctrines on the “One Baptism for the Remission of Sins.” The State has taken upon itself (in spite of all that may be said to the contrary), to decide a solely spiritual matter : claiming powers and jurisdiction that do not belong to it.

main true to their profession. Rushing into no extreme measures, adopting no intemperate language, let them show a firm and manly front, and we fear not the result.

With this object in view, we ask the earnest co-operation of our friends, and trust that the language of readers and editor will be: “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.”

Whit-Tuesday, 1850.
