remarkable one, not only for the intrinsic interest of the matter which forms its principal topic—the Church of the Future—but on account of the parties between whom the correspondence originated, the theatre on which it was carried on, and the spirit which was manifested throughout the discussion.
The Rev. Thomas Binney, the well-known Independent minister of the Weigh-house Chapel in London, having been laid aside for a while by ill health, was induced in 1858 to make a voyage to the Australian colonies, where he remained for about a twelvemonth. The presence of so eminent a preacher naturally excited a feeling of regret among the Churchmen of those colonies that ecclesiastical differences should prevent him from ministering in their congregations; and hoping that restrictions of this kind might be somewhat relaxed under Colonial laws, many lay members of the Anglican Church in South Australia, and at the head of them the Governor himself, petitioned the Bishop of Adelaide that Mr. Binney might be invited to occupy
the pulpit of some of the episcopal clergy. To this request the Bishop declared himself unable to accede. But so far was he from withholding his sympathy from the memorialists, that he had already, of his own spontaneous impulse, addressed a letter to Mr. Binney, in which he set forth elaborately and at considerable length his own views and proposals for a fusion of the Protestant Evangelical Churches ;' and invited the cooperation of his correspondent in promoting so desirable an end -invited at least the friendly interchange of sentiments and suggestions with the view to eventual co-operation. The subject thus started engaged a large portion of public attention for some time in the Australian colonies, both among Churchmen and Dissenters; and the volume before us shows us to what issues the discussion was brought.
