THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND THE DISSENTERS.
Bacon says, " If St. John were to write an epistle to the Church of England, as he did to that of Asia, it would surely contain the clause :- I have a few things against thee.” I am not quite of his opinion. I am afraid the clause would be I have not a few things against thee.
JORTIN.-Tracts, 8vo. 2, 530.
OUR “ venerable” Church complains that she is no longer venerated ; that her oracles are unheeded, and her piety unrewarded ; that the people are insensible to her merits, and ungrateful for her services. Let her look to her conduct, and she will find the cause of this estrangement; let her separate from the State, and she will find the remedy. Time was, when she had abundant credit ; but she has overdrawn, and is now suffering in common with other traders from the distress of the times. She must, therefore, give up a monopoly, which is no longer suited to the present state of intellectual commerce; and retire altogether from business, or admit others to a share of its profits. The period is fast approaching, when every political institution, whether civil or ecclesiastical, will be tried in the balance of justice and utility. Neither professions of innocence, nor abuse of the Judge, will benefit the accused. Prescription and precedent cannot be pleaded in bar of those claims which it is their object to establish. Salus populi suprema lexthere is no appeal from this tribunal. The legislature cannot give a perpetuity to any corporation.* The fee-simple of the estate is in the
• No one now maintains the inviolability of corporate rights, when a clear case of public necessity or expediency demands their sacrifice ; and when the first of all du. ties, the most urgent of all necessities, call for an alteration in the application of pub. lic property, it would be preposterous to contend that the embryo rights of any number of unappointed or unborn functionaries can legitimately interpose to prevent a just or necessary measure for reform. -Lord Henley's Plan of Church Reform, p. 8.
