termed Great, than it has ever yet been. The foundation-stone of this greatness, planted on a rock, is already laid: and at the time her rulers were priding themselves on their triumphs by land and by sea, their control over foreign cabinets, and the lead they were allowed to take in the affairs of the world, their false vanity was to work its own downfall, by the display of such gross imbecility, as will make them the laughing-stock of the world; and finally, by the exposure of the want of those resources, by which the system of false greatness was upheld, make way for that great and rational system of real glory, founded on the circulation of the Gospel, the general diffusion of knowledge, the overthrow of despotism, and destruction of bigotry, which England, and the world through her, have already commenced; and which I trust will be effected without the effusion of blood, except as far as regards the attempt to restore papacy. Twenty-eight years are still allowed to effect these great and mighty events, and the total destruction and burning of Rome, in

a manner as complete as that of Jerusalem. Then shall the world enjoy uninterrupted peace and tranquillity for 500 years. Happy are those who may live to see these days! But still more happy those nations and those individuals, who have softened rather than increased the infliction of the divine wrath upon his elect people, the Jews!
