* The Barrister ( of whom we had nearly lostsight , ) notices Mr . Clayton s recommendation , in a mote attached to the discourse 9 of the Eclectic Review , ( a monthly publication set on foot for the
maintenance of evangelical principles , ) and terms it cc a pompous eulogium * ' ' In reading it , we remembered having heard that the work whose merits it so loftily sounded , wa $ the property and the \* produce of the 8
pen , " ( Mr , G / s sermon ^ p . 1 ) . of a company of Evangelical ministers , and the exclamation involuntarily escaped us , What if Mr * Clayton should be one of the authorsjatid proprietors !
The u Hints " , . under review being addressed to the <* Legislature , " we feared fOi * opening jthem , that they were intended to recommend parliamentary coercion and persecution ,, with ; irega ^ to the
Evangelical dissenters . * Taia de * sign . is n < Sit > openly avowed , \> jat it is insinuated . « The ^ au ^ hQr com - plains , tb ^ t * the mem bers of this new spiritual body , should be favoured ; with special immunities and exclusive privileges , ! ' by which
he acknowledges he means a ft * eence to preach ' , and the ; ititnw tions consequent upon ; it 9 1 M ® jvould , then , confute erroneous teachers by silencing thq nn with the strong arm of law ; jh $ . ha $ purely studied wijh little attention , either the nature of the human
mind , or the spirit of Cbristian ^ y * Does he forge ^ tha t ; the ^ fltrt ^ whom he so much dreads , have just a * much right to psot $ qHI > e him publications , as he has to stip * press their preaching ? This right pn either side is falsely assurned > and will never- we trust :, find
power to enforce itself . —But we have to complain , that the Barrister does not use constitutional language as to the law which protects , and in one sense , makes
dissentiug ministers : they do not licence but , register themselves * £ . licence , in its common acceptation , implies a power of refusaltj but in the present case there is ; no such power . Clerks of the peace are required to register every p ^ Ef
^ on presenting himself , an 4 de * manding to take the oaths as % dissenting teacher ; and if they refuse , a mandamus may be obh * tained to compel their compju . ancet * . , i
