Thirty-two Columns. EDITED BY JOHN CAMPBELL, D.D.

*** Order of all Booksellers and Newevendors.

WAR WITH ROME! The following Editorial Address has appeared in the “BRITISH ENSIGN:"

BELOVED AND HONOURED FRIENDS! --- Every man, how feeble soever his powers, or humble his position, has on earth a measure of duty to perform, which he ought to view as his special mission. This duty--this mission-depends in a great degree on his light combined with his power. Action, to be steady and vigorous, must proceed from conviction--deep, devout convic


testantism. All the high places of the land are still wrapped in darkness. True Popery is therefore less an object of aversion than true piety. Pride may rebel against the former, but the heart recoils from the latter! The fact that the money of the State is given with so lavish a hand to sustain Popish schools is a very speaking circumstance. The additional fact that £30,000 per annum is set apart for the support of the Popish College of Maynooth, in which there are constantly undergoing preparation for the servioe of the Popish Church in England and her colonies a regiment of from five to six hundred students, more than double the number in all the ten Independent Colleges of Great Britain, ought to wake the dead!

Under these circumstances, we are about to redouble our efforts. As a primary step in a fresh move. ment, we propose to issue a total of 100,000 copies of the BRITISH ENSIGN gratuitously, in batches of three each, which one stamp will carry, to select persons, at proper centres, all over the country, who would properly use them, and endeavour to procure subscribers. This we propose to do fortnightly, in portions of 3,000that is, 1,000 batches of each number, containing a specially-prepared article on Popery. This would not require a very large sum ; and if a hundred substantial friends would set about it none can tell the advantage which might accrue.

Of the many notable things which of late have attracted us, all indicating the onward movement of the Vatican, and the rooted strength of its determination to make a conquest of England, the most significant is the following from the redoubtable pen of Cardinal Wiseman, on the Subjugation of the English:

"If ever there was a land in which work is to “ be done, and perhaps much to suffer, it is "here. I shall not say too much if I say that we "have to subjugate and subdue, to conquer and "rule an imperial race; we have to do with a “will which reigns throughout the world as the " will of old Rome reigned once; we have to “ bend or break that will which nations and " kingdoms have found invincible and inflexible. " We bave to gather for this work the rough " stones of this great people, and to perfect them “as gems for the sanctuary of God. It is good "for us to be here, because a nobler field could not be chosen than England on which to fight " the battle of the Church. What Constantinople, "and Ephesus, and Africa were to the heresies " of old, England is to the last, complex, and "manifold heresy of modern times. Were it “conquered in England, it would be conquered " throughout the world. All its lines meet here, " and therefore in England the Church of God must be gathered in its strength.”

The project is simple and definite. It is just to “conquer and rule" England! That is allnothing less, nothing more. But that done, all is done! Rome is triumphant in every clime. The world is once more at the feet of Antichrist! The Cardinal has thoroughly mastered the idea in all its parts, attributes, and relations. He is wise in counsel and potent in fight.

Cardinal Wiseman deals not in idle words. He means all that he says, and he will labour for its accomplishment. All the Papists of Europe, for many years past, have been praying for the conversion of England; and with both hands they are toiling to fulfil their own petitions. They are everywhere collecting money for that purpose. The whole system of British society is being vigorously worked for its furtherance. No means are left unemployed to get Popish tutors into families, schools, and colleges. The Press is largely in their hands, in the character of well-disguised Reporters, Contributors, and Editors. The system is also powerfully represented in the Senate House.

The Government of the country is but slightly tinged with the true spirit of Evangelical Pro.
