EVE RY kind of condudt which has a
j public effect is a proper fubjed of Ihe press,
hence pulpit abuse, and pulpit impro
i- pieties are not exempt from this tribunal,
r. It is full time that a gown or black coat
should cease to Shield a man fipm the cen
s lure which mifconducl deserves ; for it is
II " ot * profejlon, but his virtues that
e . ' belter him from reproach. Merit
fT is entitled to reverence and esteem whether
s it is enclosed in homespun or brocade, and
ill-natuie, illiberally, bigotry, or hypocri*
iy ought to be exposed though covered bf
a mitre. Humility, meekness, charity,
peace and goodwill to all men ought to en
ter into the composition of every man who
profeffes to preach the gospel, and he who
is devoid of such attributes, is nu better,
li as good as the deist that he reviks.
I have been led to these reflections by
a publication tinder the' name of James
Abercrombie, which appeared in your
paper of this day. If it was the inten-*
Jkht of that gentleman to exculpate him
ie!f from the charge made by some of your
correfpjndents, by an extract from his fer
mon,he has lpillakcn his capacity, and has
underrated the understanding of the pub
lic. He is charged with abuling the
French nation, and how has he acquitted
himfelf of it ? By using almost the fame
language which Pitt used in the House
of Commons, and charging them with ir
religion ! Religion is supposed n.-ceffary
to every man of virtue, and to fay that a
man is devoid of it, is to charge him with
"wee. Mr. A. has called them a nation
of deists, and his abuse would not have
been icfs. had he called thera a nation of
rascals, for deism and rascality must be fy
But let me aflc what had his sermon to
do with France ? Had he taken a political
text, that it was neceflary to lug her into
his sermon neck and shoulders ? Or was
he fearfnl that his present profeflion was
to be supported by bigotry and fuperjlitian
and that as the French had crumbled theirt
into dull, their a tars were insecure here ?
Or was he disposed to plead th » cause of
the combined despots, and make his essay
to alienate the American heart from
A prcacher must be much at a loss sos
a fubjeft, or he must have an uncommon
portion of gall in his composition, who
could arraign the religion of France at the
bar of America! 1 hat nation has cer
tainly the right to judge for itfelf in th«
important concern of its own
happiness; and the conforming clergy
theiehave as much right, and would haveaa
much justice on their fide, to traduce thi
preachers here as they have to traduce
The French revolution is no text for a
preacher of the gospel, it would furnifh a
fubiime one for a preacher of politics;
but as the gospel contemplates peace, and
politics war, the difciplfes of the one are
very unfit to be the difeiples of the other;
to mix them, therefore, is to produce ail
heterogeneous compound, not correfpotu
dent with the pacific character of religion,
and mtlft require a mind much better fit-'
ted for scenes of tumuh and blood; than
the mild tranquil aad beneficial {hade of
the gospel.
I did not hear the sermon complained
of, and was disposed to doubt the truth of
the charge against Mr. A. but his irifen*
ded juuihcation hsg made stronger impref.
fiors on my mind, than the paragraphs to
which he replies could pofiifcly have done •
for he has left no doubt with me that he
« unfriendly to a revolution, which has
t.he happiness of mankind for its object,
and that he is disposed to contribute his
mite to produce abhorrence of it in the
American world. Whether such a dispo
sition u fitted for Mr. A's present profcf
ljon I will leave to the benevolent heart to
