THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF

THE CONGREGATIONAL UNION OF ENGLAND AND WALES.

1848.

Rights are inherent in the People, but kings and princes have none. The People stand n need of neither charters nor
precedents to prove theirs, nor professional men to interpret them. They exist with every man, in every country, and in all
countries alike, the despotic as well as the free; though they may not be equally easy to be recovered in all.-MARQUIS OF
LANSDOWNE.

There is nothing so revolutionary, because there is nothing so unnatural and so convulsive to society, as the strain to keep
things fixed when all the world is by the very law of its creation in eternal progress; and the cause of all the evils of the world
inay be traced to that natural but most deadly error of human indolence and corruption, that our business is to preserve, and not
to improve. It is the ruin of all alike-individuals, schools, and nations.-DR. ARNOLD.

As I have always at heart the public good, so am I ever contriving schemes to promote it; and I think I may, without vanity
preterd to have contrived some as wise as any of the castle-builders.-ADDISON,

Vincit amor patriæ.-VIRG.
The noblest motive is the public good.
