Excerpt! and Observations.—Fellowship
Among' the ' 44 'Seleof Remains" of the,
Rev. John 3310Wn, Haddingtoii, there is
an Essay wrzixow'stixi , -Mxannos.",,
As the work is 'now out of print, and will,
be found lbnly in some old litirailes, aii out,-;:!

perhaps be added thei were held' at' such
times thet,thy had no tendency to justle
outfthe piVate exeteiseS4f od e s worship"
in the family.
The title of the Essay is, "Divine War-
rants, Advantages, Ends, and Rulea
lowship-Meetings." After observing that ,
a fell'ovvid4oneetingia a TegUltir Society of:
Christiane who .have veluntaril i agreed to: •
assemble at stated 4meseriir,places flit' the
promoting Of ,holy friendehii by joint,
prayer and spiritual conference, the author„
proceeds to 'give' the Divine Warrant for
such meetings. The , first Divine Warrant
is drawn from such. Scriptures as speak of •
Christians as felloW•citizens, fellow heirs,'
fellOw;sOldiers - ' ' and Artembers of the same
household or familY. Thus related, they
shouhLdivell together in sweet concord.
They have common interests, common
wanta),eoimon enemies, and should there.
fore asaeolate to eneourage,eomfort, emin
sel and etrengtheri. each other. The second ) ,
from snob. passagettof Scripture as Malachi
Then they that feared the
Lord spike often one to another; and the
Lord hearkened and , heard it; and a hook
of remembrance was written before hiin,
for them that feared the Lord, and thought
upon his ninitr'' And'illey shall be mine,
aisith thki Lorrthif Hosts iiilheday when I"
make lify" r wilhataiii 'them

The third, from such passagesias'exhort •
Christians to teach and admonish• one an
'otherrto' tithe& oneanother, , brat any be
hardened; • to , provoke •one -another to - lovel
arid to 00 works; `to bear one anether's
bikrdens.; to strenthen the:feeble, &c.
The important ends which • Christians
should.havein view in forming •such , Soci-`
eties, are `to ',increase among tbemselves
the knewledge of the truths,, ordinances,
and worship ,of God; to express and . exer
cise mutual sympathy among the members ;'
to help one another forward in theiTtath of.
holinessT to' `use their various' tifte and
graoes t6theirlaUthal edificatiOn, &o.
In forming Such societies,: every one
should airetioleltat the 'glory of God and
the spiritual advantage of himself and his'
brethren. None should be admitted. but
such as are soundiri the faith, anent.° en
deavoring ,to lead a holy life. All the
members should behave in an humble :and `
affectionate manner towardeeach other, in
their meetings and elsewliiire : ': 'No . cdrions
and captious question, ' to debate
or strife, ought ever to be proposed as a
subject of conversation. "...No m ember unght
to be upbraided for his weak, Lot 'even pis=
taken expressions in prairer,'cir
to any question. (Reader take notice—a .
Christian may •have'mistilen opinitins in
relation to many questions, and, yet 'be
sound in the faith:)'' • Nonmember ought to
affect a tedious length in prayer.
The advantages , of such meetings are :`
religions intimacies are preservatives against,
infection !remit, world which lies in wick
edness; noligione fellowship' secures all
the advantages Which' we can propose to
ourselves h` 'ins kind of intlinaliiek,suoh
as friendly Counsel,, sympathy, 'assistanc e
or comfort." •• (If this religious fellowship -
exists in some good degree of-perfection,
the rulers of ftfe'Chtireli need not disquiet'
themselves itbiint,"segret seeietiei." There ,
will be no dispoSition on the' part of:Chris

Among' the: rules adopted bT some such , '

THE BISHOP OP Bircrzn now very old
has beep. lately,,niddressing his clergy, and
iu reference to.,Bishop Colenso he said
"From emery considerable body of you
have received an address upon a matter of
deep regret - to the °hutch and 'affliction to
all of us. I. mean that which is 'said to
'have been , the unhappy work put -forth by
ft Bishop of our Church. I say it is said
to*have - been, so put forth, ,because I, in my,
'old age,have 'not read the book which has
occasioned so 'much alarm. I, therefore,
cannot speak of. .the' real contents of the
book, but I conclude that deep =indeed has
been, the mischief' which 'lsis turned the
very botfom 'of the -heart of the Church.
Still I =may 'venture to :say that. I do not
altogether partake 'of the alarm which has
begin expressed. It has happened, it should
seem, that a work has been put forth by a
.Bishop , of, our, Church; which has occa
,sioned., astenildmient and consternation.
Be it So. It is not, unfu4Pily, the. first
time that a BiShOp'eVen ofour\Oltnrch has
. pnt - fo - tir - tßigs'irainful to the flock of
Christ": l sNot'very long ago-Ll'mein in• the
course of 'the century, Which'in the
history of the Church is not very long
ago—a Bishop of Ireland put forth a
work distinctly denying the atonement of
our blessed Lord. What happened ? Great,
undoubtedly, was the scandal he gave,
and the necessary steps were taken to do
'justice to the Church, and to expel from
its bosom so dangerous a minister. That
unhappy man, when he found that he was
likely to be expelled, ignominiously from
the Church by regular process of the
Chuich law, Tell sick and died. Novi, I
mention this not as a solitary instance in
the Church's history, There have been
several in olden times-74 will not speak of
onr, own ,Churoh*only, but in the Catholic
Church. There have been Bi'shops cast
off by the Church, and was a 'subject of
doubtless deep lamentation' to the Church
at that time; as the present may be for
aught I knew—and permit me to say that
not, having examined the book I will not
condimn—but the present, I am afraid, will
be o£' an equally' deep cane of pain to all
of ~1 3tittlet ins --have :conlidende Tithe
mercy of klea,let'uls even thank him that
;helms been ,pleased to guard ,utir Church
from the frequency of such itistanene; and
however bad it may be now, let us be thank
ful that has' called forth's° strong a feel

by, his help to be faithful, I hope, in the
ministration to, , which' he has called us,
Vei"thia bdtlielesson which we learn from
it- =thie ditty of thankfulness to God." -
In the diocese: of= the Bishop. is a large
body of inefficient clergy—High.Church in
