To the Rl. Rev. Ihe B'tshop of Aralh, and
coadijulor Bishopqf Vhiladclphia.
Rt. Rev. Sir:
I have rcccivedyour prinlcd lelfcr, datcd
thc"Feast of St. John's, 1811 " Not know
ing what my brcthcrcn thc Bisbops of tho
Protcstant Episcopal Church iu the United
Statcs, to whom it is also addrrssed, may say
to your cxtraordinary proposilion to become
Romanists, I havc thc honor of rcturning you
the following ansvrcr for mysalf.
That branch of the Holy Catholic Church
(not Roman) in Amcrica, whose Bishops you
have thought propcr to addrcsi, and invite to
leave their parcnt and primitive tlock, thc
Vino Christ Jesus, whosc only ''Husbandman"
is God the Fathcr, to be ingraftcd on the Ro
mish Church, is chcrished by the blood of hcr
martyrs. You canr.ot be igaorant that we
arc all dccply conscicus of the fact of thesc
martyrs having died rathcr than own thc cor
rupted crced of the Romish Church, or submit
to the usurpations of her self-crcatcd Pontiff.
That it should cvcr havc cntored -our mind to
invite us to rcturn to that Church, and submit
to their hierarchy, seems strange ; and that
wc should do it with our cycs shut and our
tongues ticd, in obsdiencc to your invitation,
is no complimcnt to our undcr.tanding, and no
cvidcnce of your humilily.
You tell us ' lo look up" to ' the chair of thc
Pope." Vrc rcply, we would ralher"look up"
to thc thronc of the true God, and through
Jesus Christ, implore hcavcnly gracc and
strcnglh to resist tcinptation to sin.
iou, with sceming triumph, point us to the
little pamphlet called "Tho End of Controvcr- !
nrJ. U...-I.U. j: ,- ;
We would huinbly dircct vourattcntion j
to tho Holy Uible, wheroin is sct forth the cnd '
of the world and the fall of spiritual Babylon. '
In refcrcnce to tho point in qucstion, would

You are pleaacd to say, that "you cannot
" come beyond the prcccnts of the (Romish)
" Church, to rcach us in our prcscnt position ;
" and therefore, from afar, you raisc your
" voice" to make us hear your cntrea'ies to
come to the Popa.
Nov, Rt Rev. Sir, we would sparc you thc
troublc of raising your voice any highcr, by
answering forthwith that ct do hear, and
beg leave to nssurc you, that your being
atar qlf from us, nnght be mattcr ot re-
f W(J acqilaintc'd with vour

happy lot as wc know you onlv bv -our prcs
cnt "raised voice, afar off," inviting us (I
cannot sa- tcmpting us) to commit a great
sin, by acknowladging an earlhly spiritual
monarch in "calling the Pope our mastcr," i
when Jesus Christ is our only universal Bish
op, as ho and he only was such to thc Apostlcs
and first Bishops of the Church, in those prim
itive davs, we confess wc do not rcgrct 3-our
distancc from us. If you must "raisb your
voice" and crj' aloud to us, on a subject so
rcpugnant to our consciences and abhorrent to
our feclings, wc can only cxprcss our sinccre
wishes that the distancc betwccn us were
much greater than it is.
But in this and in all things, wc would pray
for grace to submit to the will of God, and
that which we cannot prcveat nor rcraedy,bcar
Ia all things consistent with the will of

This Society have considercd this subject
with deep concern, to compretiend, as fai as
posMb'e tlie natureaudexieutof the cvils thus
inflictedj and the fcarful responsibility of ttirir
aulhors, and lo inquire whatnan be furtber done
to defend the comniuniiy frnmthe attacksthus
made upon its interests ; and have therefore
c.iie tothe following- resulutions:
Resohed, That the profppcts ot saving the
communily from the ovils of intemperance arc
g-eatly diminished, whi!e places for the indis
criminaie sale ofinloxicating liquors are fiited up
lo tempt ihe appetite nf the unwary, limited in
iheir oper&tion only by the failure nf such appe
tite, or the enlire ?xhausiion of the means of pm
chasin: ita graiiScation.
Itesohed, That we do fully believe that if all
lhc frieDds of temperance would turn away from
stores and olhcr cstablishmcnts where intoxica-
ting liquora sre sold, to be used as a beVerage,
and steadily bestow their patronage upon lliose
which do not sell them for thai purpose, it would
generally be. found an unprofitable business to
continue their sale; and thauthuj motives of
interest would, combine with those- of duty to
stay the dcsolations of intemperonce.
Therefnre, discliiraing all purpose of wantnr. in
jury to any, and impelled jolelv by a desire to
defend and protect interests which ore dear to'
the whole communily :
Renlved, Thai in bestowing our patronage, as
it isont unquestionablc right, so itis oursole'mn

political power. They have a nnjority in

npinion thai uxhl mny -et be reconciled, and
such a mouclary instilulion bo pre?cnled othc
counlrv ns will subscrvc ihe grcat object in

rrorrrsniz.'ition ofthc Cabino: has bccn dccracd.
nd Ihat such a slep will ticcrssarily invoKo
dangcr if not ullimato divisioii.
Tho public should not put too much confi-
dcnce in Iho siorics ihat rrach us from Wash
ington. Wc generally publish all such rumois
n.s part of lhc rumorsof the day. But their ap
pearance in prir.t is not an infalliable evidenco
of their accuracy. Our own view is, that tha.
Cabinet slioulo not rrsign. I he riresidcnt,
it is said, is ndver$c to such a stcp. whilc his
rlntions wilh all thc inembcrs are oftho most
fricn-Jly and confidcntial characlcr. If thisbo
true, we ropcat that no rcsignation should tako
place. Duiy requircs the mcmbers of tha
vnrious Dcpartmenls to rrmain where they are;
duty as well to their political friends asto tho
country. No changc for the bettcr, as it secms
to us. could lake place nt Iho present moment.
On lhc contrnry, nolhing but evil coud como
of such changc. But if, on lhe oiher hand, tho
President bc anxious, bc determiacd to rc-
or"nnizc his Cabinet, of course ho has tho
richl. and tho cenllcmcn who occupy towards
him the position of his confidcntial ndvisers
cnn readily, no doubt, oscertain his wishes.
But as obscrvcd before, our adviscs are. that I12
neithcr sceks or drsircs a changc. If so, wa
rcpeat, our friends in Congress should pas
what measures they can, avoid every thing
liko a rupiure, nnd thus rcturn 10 their consiit
uerts conscious of having discharged their
duty. Union.patrioiism.jreconciliation, should
