THE PRIMATE AND HIS PASTORAL.
TO THE EDITOX. ■Sir, —Knowing the honored position which Mr C K. Statham and his father family hold in our Church, it seems . to me n cowardly act on the part of the | Bishop oi IHim-cfiii to attack hiin in ihc manner he lias by tho pastoral, because Mr '_ Stathnm chooses to use his conscience and . ;K-t. in accordance with it* dictates, which i have always understood to 1m tho teach- ' ing of our Bible and Church doctrine. Bishop Xevill, simply because Mr St;i- ---| tham has acted &s any Christian man is ' entitled to, chooses to make an attack through, the pastoral, which is desired to I do our esteemed fellow-church menilxsr incalculable harm in his election as a m«m- ---' ber of Parliament. Jf such methods are continued (following no soon after '"the eruption" at St. Paul's). the Primnto will ■ certainly lose caste in the Church ho represents, as members of the Chinch of ■ Englanld will iiot stand dictation a-nd practice."; of this port. The Primate, would be well advisced to keep the Church out of politics.—l am. etc.. One or Hjs Fi/iok. I December 5.
