PREFACE.

At the conclusion of our last volume-we wrote in a cheerful and a happy strain. Since then great arid grievous wrong has heen 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. This we grant is to a certain extent sad and disheartening; but yet we cannot, like cowards, cherish darksome fears and unprofitable doubts. We believe that our Church is not affected by this decision as far as her doctrines, plainly enunciated, are concerned. Her Prayer Book and Formularies are just the same as they ever were. Let every Churchman co-operate to cleanse her from the false doctrine that threatens her, and demand for her the exercise of her inalienable rights, and re-echo throughout the land, that, though in connection with the State, she shall not be reduced to the position of a vassal and a slave, compelled to ask, with "bated breath and whispering humbleness," for leave to do her duty. But in thus acting let them turn neither to the right hand nor the left; but re

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. For ourselves, convinced that she needs our hearty and unselfish love, we trust that we shall more than heretofore serve our Church by maintaining her claims, and planting her deeper in the hearts of the people. 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.
