Now my Right Reverend brother. I am •
sorry to be ohlig.d to’charge you, not only I
wi’h a gross insult against your senior, hut i
with the m*re serious offence of a false
accusation. My letter was first published i
in January, IKtll. more than three mouths
htf-re the war Hogan, at a time when no;
one could anticipate the form of Govern-:
imi.t which the Southern Spates should;
adopt, or the course which Congress might 1
I;.fib in reference to their secession. And ,
when I consented to its r publication, I i
did uot ujip>K* that it would he uaed in,
the service of any politics! party, although J
1 had no right to complain, if it were so|
Ufced; beeniiso the letter, once published, .
became public property. Hut in its pre- ,
sent form th*rc is nothing whatever in it f
which hears on the question of “rebel- 1
lion.” or of ihc “perpetual bondage f rite ■
African.” orof a “tyranny under ihename
of a Republic,” of which slavery should be <
the “c*.rm r-Monc.” On the contrary, 1.
rfence', on the last page, to my lecture;
piddislo-d iu Boflahi in 1860, and to my
book called “The American Citizen,” pub
lished in Nw York, in 18f7, where “I*
set forth the same views on the subject of'
slavery, adding, however, a plan for it*;
gradual abdiltr.n whenever the youth’
should consent, and the whole strength of
tin- Government could aid in its uccoik-1
plishmcnt ” "Sumer or later.’* I adder!, >
“I believe that some measure of that char
acter must be adopted. Rut it belongs to
the sluv* Elates themselves to take the lead 1
in such a movement. And meanwhile *
their legal rights and their natural feelings!
must he respected, if we would hope for
unity and peace ”
With these facta before your eyes, I am
totally at a loss to imagine how even the
extravagance of party zeal could frame
against ir eso hitter a denunciation. The i
whole cdjtfPt of my letter was to prove,,
from th* JHUr, that iu the relation of urns-*
ter and Javc there was necessarily no sin:
whatever. The Gn. if there were any. lay
in the treatment of the slave, and not in the
relation itself. Of course, it was liable to
abuse, as alt human relations must he.—
But while it was certain that thousands of
our Chrbtitm brethren who held slaws,
were treating them with kiadoesa and jus- 1
lice, according to the Apostles’ rule, snd
carrcsn>y laboring to improve the comforts
uiid ameliorate ihe haruthips ot the ini-titu- |
u n. I held it to be a *rel and absurd t
charge to accuse them as sinners against ;
the Divine law. when they were only doling:
what the Word sf God allowed, under the*'
constitution and established code of tkrir ■
country. J
I do not know whether your band of in- j

: framed our Constitution with suck express

i (he inspired Apostles, and in the lioly
t/Htbdic (or universal) Church you and i
your clergy also profess to believe. I know j
that the doctrine of that Church was clear
and unanimous on the iau /ul/uss of shivery '
I fur eighteen centuries together; and on that)
, point i regard your ‘‘protest” and “indig- j

I wish you, therefore, to ho advertised J

the truth “wherein [ stand.” And I shall
‘prove in that book, by the most unquea- I

; holders w* re in the Church from the be

sistent with Christian principle by the'
; bathers and Councils, and by all Protes-1
; tant divines aud eouuuentaturs, up to the
very close of the last century, and that this
fact was universal among ail Churches and i
sects throughout the Christian world. I'
; shall contend that our Church, which
maintains the primitive rule of catholic;
consent and abjures all novelties, is bound,
by her very Catistitiitiuu, to hold fast to |
chat only safe and enduring rule, or iiuau- i
don her Apostolic claims, ami descend loj

so that it 1 cajuut give you lame, 1 may, i

That the nineteenth century is a century
of .*at improvement and wonderful dis

willingly as any man. Rut in religious j
i truth or reverence fur the Rible. the age
| in which we live is prolific in daring and ,
impious innovation. We have seen pro-!

and sub-divided on every side. We have
seen the rise and spread of Cniveraallistu, |
Milierism, PatitheUm. Moriuouism. and

After fiirty years spent in the ministry, J
j more than thirty of which have been pao>l
ed in the office of n Bishop. I can look |
bk with humble thankfulness 'to the.
j Giver of stll good for this, at least, that all
my best labors have been directed to the
’ preservation of the Church from the lu
; roads of doctrinal innovation. At my

the tarwr”—*od certain it is that “this
I Churcb” had not received the moiern doc
i trine of uitra-Akolirionisiu at that time, as
I trust she never will receive it, because
it is contrary to the Sacred Scriptures. I!
also promised “wirb all faithful diligence
to banish and drive away from the Church
all erroneous and'strange dortn nee contrary ;
I to God’s Word,** and I made those prom
ises in the true sense which the venerable
RUhop White, my Ordainer, attached to.
them. I believe then, as he believed, that ‘
! our Southern brethren committed no sin in •
! having slaves, and that they were men ofi
as much piety as any mmisters in our Com- j
munion. I believed, aa he believed, that
i the plain precepts and practice of the Apoa
: ties sanctioned the institution, although, as .
i a matter of expediency, the time might
1 come when the South would prefer, as the i
I North had done, to employ free labor
Tho**e promises I have kept faithfully to
. this day—and if when I am drawing uear
j to the cud of my career, I am to ho mu- ,
j demited and vilified by you and your i
• clergy. Itecausc 1 still maintain them to the ;
utmost of my slender ability, be assured, j
my Right Reverend Brother, that I shall i
! regret the fact much more on your account |
than on my own.
j lit conclusion, I have only to say that I :
feel no rvsentmont for the grossly insulting '
style of your manifesto. The stability ana j
unity of the Church of God are the only in- \
Cereals which 1 desire to secure, aud I am j

From the Constitutional I n,ion
i It puzzles us sorely to obtain in these
j days ;u adequate idea of the sign fixation !
of the word “loyalty.” From the fre- j
! uuoncy of its use in the Proclamations of
: Provost Marshals and the. harangues of'
j political demagogues, it seems to have sunk •
below the decency of a definition into the '
i “Swampoodle” of slang,
j Regarding its etymology only, (he word j
1 denoted, originally, obedience to tbc laws ‘
But usage always overpowers derivation, |
aud, accordingly, Wcbstei defines it “ftdcl-1
ity to a prince or sovereign.” Fader the ;
; doctrine once universally prevalent in this]
I country, the people were sovereign, aud j
the Constitution was the written re presen- ■
tative of their sovereignly. A want of{
; obedience to that charter constitutes a
| failure in loyalty, though it could not bv j
denominated treason, which wonl receives
; its own definition in the Cunstilutiou itself.
• 1 he present Administration, therefore, can
• be safely pronounced disloyal, though we
; should hesitate to pronounce all its meiu
| hers traitors—though ouo of them has'
‘ brought himself under the suspicion of mis- :
; prison of treason hy indirectly giving aid
i and comfort to the enemy.
If we may with propriety use (be word
j “loyalty” at all, wc consider the dbtinc
-1 lion between its acceptation and that of
; treason, wholly unmistakable. It is fash
ionable now to couple treason and diiov-
I ally together, ami lo use them as identical,
j terms. This is an error. Loyalty, iu
; deed is define*.! to be an uucondilioual ad- j
i hesion to the present Administration, an;
' unhesitating approval of ail its measures, I
an unshrinking admiration of all its acts.,
To swerve in the smallest tittle from this ’
course, is departure front loyal*y; aud not 1
to be loyal is to be a traitor. Such, how-
I ever, are all the definitions of the “Aboi-j
! ition dictionary” aud the deductions of
‘ Abolition l*gic.
It has, moreover, been declared, as a :
maxim of “Leaguer” faith. “That there]
is no such thing in times of rebellion as
j supporting the National Government with
out supporting the Administration of the
National Government; that the Adminis
tration of the National Government is con- *
fined by the Constitution to the President,
assisted in their several spheres of duty by I

I the “defensive” is lit every purp.f •
j of the hostilities, and all the expenditui.-
l of money and iives is made in vain. The

1 serving to prove the hopeless nature of the
1 conflict.
The questions in dispute appear to Eu
j ropeans ot the kind that esnnat be dot* r
