T HAT “ injury and loss to the interests of Christian truth, Christian piety, and Christian charity,” of which the Dean of Bocking affectionately admonished the Church members of the Bible Society as the necessary, result of its measures and proceedings, and as involved in the very principle of its constitution, have marked its progress from the period of its establishment to the present hour—appealing to them in behalf of every thing which they profess to reverence, with a more impressive importunity, at every stage of its career. A mere glance at the titles which form the series prefixed to this article, will, we are persuaded, carry our readers with us in this introductory reflection, and secure us their approbation of the plan which we have adopted for bringing the pamphlets under review, as the one best calculated to exhibit their respective merits, and to carry those cónvictions to all whofm it may concern, which they have indeed too long resisted; but which, it is to be hoped, they may yet receive for some better purpose than unavailing self-reproach and vexation. " . It is obvious that we are here including in one critical investigation two discussions, which have arisen at remote times and places, and among different persons; but it is equally obvious, that in the occasions which produced them, there is a sufficient similarity to justify the association, and to promise that a survey so conducted will turn to better account than if they were separately considered, and no advantage taken of the light which the respective disputants reflect upon each other. . The first five pamphlets relate to two speeches reported to have been delivered from the chair at the annual meetings of the Norfolk and Norwich Auxiliary Church Missionary and Bible Societies, in September, 1814, by the Lord Bishop of that iocese, and comprize the animadversions of Mr. Forby upon certain positions attributed to his Lordship; two answers to those animadversions, Mr. Forby's rejoinder, and Mr. Glover's reply. The three last are a succession of assaults upon the Lord Bishop of Lincoln, for a passage in his charge recently delivered, and published without authority in the London and provincial newsapers. - - - - That our readers may be in possession of the whole subject, we here present them with the two speeches in question, as they stand cited from the Norwich Mercury in Mr. Forby's appendix: intending to supply the remaining document at its proper place by a similar citation. - * At g

“At a numerous and highly respectable meeting of the Norfolk and Norwich Association, in S3. Andrew's Hals, on Wednesday the 28th of September, the Bishop of Norwich being callel to the chair, addressed ihe meeting as follows :-- . . . . . . . . . . . “Gentlemen and Ladies—Having never hitherto had the oppor: . tunity of making my grateful acknowledgments to the original members of the Norwich and Norfolk Association, for the honour they did me in appointing me their President, I gladly seize the present occasion of returning them my cordial thanks, for an op

portunity which I consider as highly eligible, on account of the

very distinguished manner in which it connects me with the

Church Missionary Society for Africa and the East; an institution,

the object of which I cannot but consider as the most pure, the

most useful, the most benevolent, and the most o christian,

that can possibly enter into the heart of man, viz. to disseminate,
by means of missionaries, the revealed word of God; that is, to
diffuse the light of truth over the dark regions of error and vice.
There are, I know, some, and those too, very good and respect-
able men, who start at the very name of missionary, forgetful that
the apostles were the first missionaries, as the term apostle of itself
sufficiently indicates; forgetful, that if the same prejudices against
missions had existed in the fourth century, which now exist with
some, Britain might still have been what Africa and the greater
part of India now are; forgetful too, of the express command of
our Divine Master, ‘goye into all the world, and preach the gos-
el to every creature.” Surely, this is a cause in which every
hristian ought to unite!. But still they tell us we must be-
ware of enthusiasts. I, gentlemen, am no friend to a zeal without
knowledge and without discretion. It hardly ever does any good.
But those who affect to be so much alarmed at the spirit of enthu-
siasm which is gone forth, may prevent the effects which they
apprehend, by joining our ranks, and by moderating that zeal
from which they apprehend so many bad consequences. But they
also tell us, that there are already two venerable societies in the
Established Church, Be it so. I wish there were two hundred 1
I wish that every Christian of every denomination was joined in
one or other of them. The field is wide enough for all our exer-
tions. The harvest is great and the labourers are few. Hardly a
century has elapsed since the first protestant missionary embarked
for India. Owing to his piety and activity, a church was soon
established in India, and the first Monarch of the House of Bruns-
wick addressed a letter to him, written with his own hand, ex- .
pressive of his approbation and esteem. The learned and religious
Archbishop Wake did the same thing. Would to God that every
future Monarch of that illustrious House, and every present and
future Prelate would follow such an example! Whether you meet
with the encouragement or not, of those from whom you have, in
my opinion, a right to expect it, I hope you will persevere. I
I hope you will never cease your endeavours, till the glad tidings
of the gospel be preached in every corner of the world, “as far as
winds can waft and waters roll them.’” - -
