stance of his mother, born in the world; perfect God and perfect man" in one person. Pursuing this argument, we have shewn, that, in order to be both a merciful and faithful high priest,- the Scriptures represent Christ as having been“ tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin ;” “made like unto his brethren in all things, sin only excepted;" "touched with a fellow-feeling of our infirmities;” and at the same time "holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners :” that in Him “ mercy and truth met together, righteousness and peace kissed each other.” We have further shewn, that Christ, being perfect God, had in Him all the attributes of Godhead; and these altributes may all be predicated of the person of Christ, though not one of them can be predicated of manhood—not even of Christ's manhood, if considered per se and apart from his person. And that, being also perfect man, Christ had in Him all the attributes of manhood; every one of which may be predicated of the person of Christ, though not one of them can be predicated of his Godhead per se and apart from his person. And, further, we have shewn, that, though it be blasphemy of the highest kind, either to degrade the Godhead by bringing it into creature limitation, or to deify manhood hy giving it the attributes of God; when considering Godhead in its essence, and manhood apart from Christ; yet, when we are treating of these two natures as met in Christ, the Godhead acting through the manhood and manhood deriving its support from Godhead, we not only may, but must, give them both oneness and personal identity in Him; yet not by confusion of substance, but by unity of person : his sufferings and merits, though creature attributes, having the infinitude of Deity; and the invisible God being manifested in his person, as he himself declared, saying, “ He that hath seen me hath seen the Father." The right apprehension of this constitutes, in fact, the whole mystery of god. liness, God manifest in flesh. An apparent contradiction it is-an union of contraries-but so is the whole work of redemption, which reconciles sinners with God. This glorious mystery, which angels desired to look into, was incomprehensible, till it became realized in the incarnation of the Son of God, when the Eternal Word became flesh, and the heavenly host burst forth in rapturous acclamations, “ Glory to God in the highest : on earth peace, goodwill towards men.” Theirs was disinterested joy : they sang these Hosannas for us : and we, in whose nature the mystery was solved, when the transcendent work of God was achieved for us men and for our salvation ; we indolently and listlessly turn aside from the contemplation of this glorious mystery, this key-stone of all sound theology! WE, miserable ingrates, sullenly refuse to be taught, saying, “Where is the profit of such speculations ;" or, still worse, rail at and calumniate each other, ignorantly or maliciously imputing to our brethren opinions against which they are continually protesting! As matters stand, we find it necessary to go on with this controversy; but the mode of handling it must depend upon the various forms in which error may shew itself, which we shall endeavour to meet as they severally arise, with all the strength which God may please to give us. And may He overrule this strife of man to His own praise ! May He keep us in a charitable, Christian frame of mind; make us instruments in promoting his glory, and ever seek to praise and magnify the holy name of the Lord.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The Review of Vaughan's Sermon, in our last Number, has been printed separately, as a tract,

at the request of six Country Clergymen, and is now ready for delivery, under the title of “ The

Church of England defended from the Attacks of Modem Dissenters," &c. We have received several important Papers and several Replies, which we hope to find room for

in our next : but we crave the indulgence of our friends in the free exercise of a discretionary power of delaying the publication of their papers. We beg to assure them, that the delay will never proceed from inattention to, or undervaluing of, their communications, but solely from an honest endeavour to bring forward most promptly those papers which teach the truths most

needed, or meet effectually the most crying evils. The Titio, Contents, and Index to Vol. II. will be given with our next Number.
