gent friends of freedom , and there are thousands of such amongst the orthodox dissenters , ought to feel , and we hope generally do feel , that but for the Unitarians , an indelible disgrace might have been brought on the name of dissent . They must be aware , too , that the practical working of their system is not so much in favour of civil and religious liberty as they and we desire it should be- He who speaks in the name of the party should use the language of humiliation , not of boasting ; and abstain from calumniating others instead of appropriating their deeds and merits .

The Athanasian Apostasy Rejected . By a Bible Christian . —Hunter . The Athanasian Apostasy Rejected is a compendium of anti-trinitarian arguments and expositions , chiefly selected from Mr .

Within that period a co-partnership has been formed with the Irish Church , in which it is said the abuses are still more flagrant than here . Some reforms must be made in Ireland ; and theyjwill be much stronger precedents for reform in England than if the two Churches had remained distinct . I never could understand the
advantage accruing to the English Church from that union : yet the measure , when proposed in the English parliament , passed without an observation of any kind . Not a word uttered either to approve or disapprove .
