Straight. —The Rev. Peter M'Lauchlan, lately pastor of the London road Free Church, and now of Rowland's Parish Church, Glasgow, in the course of a sermon to his congregation lately, referred to the failure of the City Bank, expressing the opinion that the church had her share in the great disaster. “ Does she not,” he asked, “ encourage a class of praters, who degrade the name of evangelists, and who cause, in the name of the Christian religion, an unholy turmoil in the world ? To this race of offenders she has made repentance and forgiveness easy, so that they often cast aside the bonds of morality with amazing facility, and plague society with their strange inconsistencies. Alas ! they can take encouragement from her example. Has she not trampled upon her constitutional principles, her historical traditions, and her solemn pledges? Some of her leaders, perverting her history, and seeking to frame a lie for posterity, have encouraged men of the world in their dishonest practices.”
