THESE pamphlets open a large field of peculiarly interesting and important discussion, not likely soon to terminate, and pregnant with issues affecting the Episcopal Church in England as well as Scotland. Seldom have we felt more the need of heavenly wisdom to guide men to a just and scriptural judgment, than in the deeply interesting transactions which have called forth these pamphlets.
