Between the Church of England (if such national designation be still appropriate) and the Church in America there

[blocks in formation]

are too many features in common, notwithstanding their obvious disparity of external condition, not to create at all times a corresponding interest in each other's welfare : in seasons of prosperity, liınited perhaps to good wishes; but when perilor emergency arises, swelling into deep sympathy, and affording mutual instruction by a comparison of each other's course, whether it have been for weal or wo. Like friendly vessels within hailin dangerous seas, or on an unknown coast, each may warn the other of hidden rocks or unforeseen currents of which their charts give them but general notice, and cheer each the other with the words of their common pilot, “ not to be weary in well-doing" — or, with his blessed promise, not to fail those who shall keep " due watch and ward." Such benefit, whether of guidance or comfort, will naturally, we say, arise between these two national churches, in proportion to their mutual knowledge and their mutual sympathy. It is our object in the following observations to do our share towards communicating the one and awakening the other.

In historic relationship these churches stand to each other as mother and daughter. By the hands of the ancient and wealthy Church of England was the infant Church in America planted; and not only planted, but watered, and, childlike, nourished, till it could go alone. In political relationship they stand as sister churches, equal and independent “owing no man any thing, but to love one another.” But again, in Christian relationship they come still nearer, even as sympathizing members of one common body, whereof no one part is so great that it may say to another, “ I have no need of thee” — that body is the Christian Church Catholic

“ That only bond in the wide earth,

Of lawful use to join the earth in one

with its “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all."

Such then is the compound relationship existing between these two churches, making sympathy between them an instinctive feeling as well as an imperative duty; and, in a Christian point of view, the prescribed testof being themselves living members of that body to which both profess to belong. Now to this demand the actual feeling is, we are confident, in spirit at least, fully correspondent.

To the Church of England the Church in America has
