Mr Dear Bishop : I read jour communication, of I&et Sunday with mingled pleasure and pain, with pleasure that bo eminent a Bishop and ser vant of God finds bo few obstacles in tho way of union between the Methodists and Episcopa lians; with pain that be so indefinitely postpones this desired consummation, which many devout ly pray for. The General Convention of the Episcopal Chorea has ordered that at all her CotAentiona a petition shall be offered, wi the united suf frages of the whole body of the faithful, that they nay be eared “from all error, ignorance, pride, and prejudice,” and to eo “direct, sancti fy, and govern, , , by the mighty power of the Holy Ghost, that the comfortable Gospel of Christ may be truly preached, truly received, and truly followed in all places . . . till at length Che whole of thy dispersed sheep, being gather ed into one fold,” etc. Incur morning and even ing prayer we continually ask God’s spirit “ that all who profess and coll themselves Christians may hold tho f&ith la unity of litany wo pray for “ all Christian rulers,” which, by many in the Church, would include yourself and all governors of Christians; wo pray for “unity” “to all nations.** In tho prayer for the whole state of Christ’s Church militant we beseech Almighty God “ to inspire continually the universal Church with the spirit of truth, unity, and concord,” and that “all who do confess Thy Holy Name may live in unity and gcdly love.” In the invocation In tho communion wo beseech our Merciful Father that all the partakers of the Holy Supper may be “ made one body with Him.” In the ordering of priests, tho candidates prom ise “to set forwards peace and love among all. Christian people.” The Bishops at their conse cration make a promise to tho samo effect The Committee on Church Unity appointed by. the General Convention of the entire Episcopal Church in tho United States, and influenced by the foregoing prayers and language and the spirit of tho Liturgy, reported in 1356 that •*tbo first step towards this happy and greatly desired result (Christian union) must bo sought in unity of spirit rather than unity of doctrine and discipline; and, therefore, mutual allow ances and a largo toleration are indispensable requisites, for which we should fervently and devoutly pray. Wo cannot but earnestly and affectionately recommend to our brethren and friends everywhere, in view of the momentous interests involved in’tho final disposition of this question, tp strive to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace by doing justice to the merits of other systems; by repressing, a spirit of self-complacency and self-laudation; bv a more cordial manner towards ministers of other religious bodies ; by fruitfulness in at/ ’woodworks; onr ministers more fervid, self aeuymg, and laborious ; our neoplo more char itable, exemplary, and devout.” The fourth resolution proclaims “ the desirableness of union amongst all Christians ” and gives tho “ pledge of willingness ’* for such union on the part of the Episcopal Church. At the next General Convention the report says; $244,014.19 .$500,000 . 937,540 .$200,000 . 306,000 There is an increasing seuseof tho evils involved in cr resulting from tla« present divisions ; a growing deairs and scarcoing of heart not only for more of tin* unitr of the Spirit, bat also lor more of the unity of tho Spirit .In “the bond of peace,” which nothing but a close harmony and communion in visi ble Church institutions can create. < In ISGS tho r.sv. Ur. Xlood offered in the Gen eral Convention the following, which was adopted: Wurnraq, The restoration of the unity of the Church is an object of vast importance; as, without restored unity it will be impossible for her perfectly to fulfill her mission in the world; and, whereas, in tue opinion of many, the signs of the times clearly in dicate that tbero is a strong and Increasing desire among the Churches and in the various denomina tions of Christians in Christendom to see such unity restored. Following this preamble was a resolution creating the Commission oa Unity, which now exists. Sinco 1863 the Old Catholic movement has been crowing in interest and vigor, and ita lead ers wisely um that they can effect bat Ihtlo against the errors of Borne and an infidel sga and world witbont a united Christianity. This has giren an impetus to bring into closer inter communication the Old Catholic, the Greek, and Anglican, and Anglo-American Episcopal Churches. At the lost Conference the only bar rier has besa virtually removed, and only pro forma work really remains to secure this great result. Dr. fichaff, the President of the Evan gelical Alliance, who waa at the Bonn Con ference, and who is not an Episcopalian, says that be knows from Dr. DoUioger’a own mouth that after removing the obstacles of in tercommunion with tho auciont churches of the East, bo intends to negotiate with Prot estant divines, and he knows, too, that several; leaders of the Old Catholic movement are more inclined to an alliance with Evangelical Churches than with the Greek. Dr. Schaff maintain* that, the tendency of Old Catholicism is evidently in' the Protestant direction. The Doctor, at the head of the Evangelical Alliance, de clares that the idea of Christian union is the great idea of tho nineteenth century. . and he eces nothing to obstruct, eventually, the construction of a broad platform of brotherhood on which Orientals. Old Catholics, Episcopalians, Preebjteriaos, and Methodists xan stand together and make a common tight against in fidelity and Antichrist. This spirit of nuitv which is abroad, which baa brought our Presbyterian brethren of di3er ont names into one Presbyterian tola, will bring tho Baptists of various names into one Baptist body, will brine the Methodists of various or ganizations into one. and then all thesa and Episcopalians, not into tho Episcopal Church, bat into one grand catholic body. In your own noble church, my dear Bishop, 1 know of many hearts that throb with such ex pectations. One of your most eloquent preach ers. not a thousand miles off, desired to live long enough to see this glorioos conaoiozcatioo,whici he put off at the farthest at not - a quarter of t NUMBER 47.
