injury and loss to the interests of Christian trath, Christiani piety, and Christian charity,” of which the Dean of Bocking affectionately admonished the Church members of the Bible Society as the necessary, result of its measures and proceedings, and as involved in the very principle of its constitution, bave marked its progress from ihe period of its establishment to the present leur appealing to them in behalf of every thing which they profess to reverence, with a more impressive importinily, at every stage of its career. A mere glance at the titles which form tlie series prefixed to this article, will, we are persuaded, carry our readers with us in this introductory reflection, and secure us their approbation of the plan which we have adopted for bringing the pamphlets under review, as the one best calculated to exbibit their respective merits, and to carry those convictions to all whořn it may concern, which they have indeed too long resisted ; but which, it is to be hoped, they may yet receive for some better pupose than unavailing self-reproach and 'vevation.

It is obvious that we are here including in one critical investigation tiro discussions, which have arisen at remote times and places, and among different persons; but it is equally obvious, that in the occasions which produced them, there is a sufficient similarity. to justify the association, and to promise that a survey so conducted will turn to better account than if they were sepa rately considered, and no advantage taken of the light which the respective disputants reflect upon each other.

The first tive pamphlets relate to two speeches reported to have been delivered from the chair at the annual meetings of the Norfolkand Norwich Auxiliary Church Missionary and Bible Societies, in September, 1814, by the Lord Bishop of that diocese, and comprize the animadversions of Mr. Forby upon certain positions attributed to his Lordship; two answers to those animadversions, Mi. Forby's rejoinder, and Mr. Glover's reply. The three last are a succession of assaults upon the Lord Bistop of Lincoln, for a passage in his charge recently delivered, and published frithout authority in the London and provincial newspapers.

That our readers may be in possession of the whole subject, ve here present tiem with the two speeches in question, as they stand cited from the Norwich Mercury in Mr. Forby's apperdix'; intending to supply the remaining document at its pro per place by å similar citation.

* At a numerous anil highly respectable meeting of the Norfolk and Norwich Association, in St. Andrew's Hall, on Wednesday the

28th of September, the Bishop of Norwich being called to the chair, 186.

addressed the meeting as follows

« Gentlemen and Ladies--Having never hitherto had the oppor: tunity of making my grateful acknowledgments to the original members of the Norwich and Norfolk Association, for the honour present occasion of returning them my cordial thauks, for an op portunity which I consider as highly eligible, on account of the very distinguished manner in which it connects me with the Church Missionary Society for Africa and the East; an institution, the object of which I cannot but consider

as the most pure, the most useful, the most benevolent, and the most truly christian, that can possibly enter into the heart of man, viz. to disseminate,

by means of missionaries, the revealed word of God; that is, to DIVERSE

diífuse the light of truth over the dark regions of error and vice. There are, I know, some, and those too, very good and respect, able men, who start at the very name of missionary, forgetful that the apostles were the first missionaries, as the term apostle of itself sufficiently indicates; forgetful, that if the same prejudices against missions had existed in the fourth century, which now exist with some, Britain might still have been what Africa and the greater part of India now are; forgetful too, of the express command of our Divine Master, go ye into all the world, and preach the gos. pel to every creature.' Surely this is a cause in yhich every Christian ought to unite! But still they tell us, we must be ware of enthusiasts. 1, gentlemen, am no friend to a zeal without knowledge and without discretion. It hardly ever does any good.

But those who affect to be so much alarmed at the spirit of enthu1 2 SUT

siasm which is gone forthi, may prevent the effects which they apprehend, by joining our ranks, and by moderating that zeal from which they, apprehend so many bad consequences. But they also tell us, that there are already two venerable societies in the Established Church, Be it so. I wish there were two hundred ! I wish that every Christian of every denomination was joined in one or other of them. The field is wide enough for all our exertions. The harvest is great and the labourers are few. Hardly a century has elapsed since the first protestant missionary embarked for India. Owing to his piety and activity, a church was soon established in India, and the first Monarch of the House of Bruns

wick addressed a letter to him, written with his own hand, exBishop

pressive of his approbation and esteem. The learned and religious Archbishop Wake did the same thing. Would to God that every tuture Monarch of that illustrious House, and every present and future Prelate would follow such an example! Whether you meet with the encouragement or not, of those from whom you have, in

my opinion, a right to expect it, I hope you will persevere. I us at I hope you will never cease your endeavours, till the glad tidings its prie

of the gospel be preached in every corner of the world, as far as winds can waft and waters roll them.' "
