The unusual expense of postage for the Church And State Review has long been a subject of considerable complaint among Subscribers to that Journal. The Proprietors have at length, therefore, determined to reduce the Review within the weight covered by an ordinary Penny Stamp. As this has entailed a slight diminution in the amount of reading matter in each Number, they have further determined upon a more than corresponding reduction in the price, which will henceforward be Sixpence for 3 a pages, instead of One Shilling for 48 pages, as heretofore, the Volume being annual instead of half-yearly. The Proprietors trust that this new arrangement will be found satisfactory.
The Church and the Conservatives.
HE Dean of Chichester has written a letter to the Times, more suo, without stopping to understand the question on which he writes. And the Guardian, more suo, applauds the Dean, whom in its sincerer moments (if there be any such moments) it regards with fear and dislike. The matter which puzzles the one and irritates the other is easily explained. The Church of England has two aspects: one simply as a religious body—a branch of the Church Catholic; and another as the Church by law established in this realm. There is nothing inconsistent in these two aspects— they are, in fact, united in the view of a true Church-and-State man. Still it is quite possible to regard either by itself. A man may sincerely adhere to the doctrine and discipline of the Church without valuing her political status, or "establishment," in this country. A little while ago there was a pretty active party of so-called "High Churchmen," who openly condemned the "Establishment," and were perpetually asking how much longer the Church was to bear the tyranny of the State. Of this party we will only say that
it supplied most of the Anglican perverts to Popery —and is now but little heard of. On the other hand, it is no less certain that a man may be a stout "Establishmentarian," who, in spiritual matters, is but loosely attached to the distinctive features of the Church. Such, for example, are those professed Episcopalians who, when in Scotland, attend the Presbyterian kirk as the " Established religion" of the country.
Such being the two aspects, the word " Church" naturally varies its meaning according to the bearing of the subject under discussion. At a religious meeting we should talk of strengthening the Church by enlarging and deepening her purely spiritual influences. At a political meeting the same language would be as properly applied to the defence of her constitutional rights. And at either a man would be reckoned a good or a bad Churchman, according as he responded to the question in hand.
Now this very obvious distinction disposes at once of Dr. Hook's illogical letter. Lord Robert Cecil declared that a good Churchman must be a good Conservative: but where was the declaration made? —at a political dinner and in the House of Commons, —places where there is no question of Sacraments or Orders, but only of the Church in her connexion with the State and Constitution of England. What, then, does Dr. Hook reply ?—that he has known many " good Churchmen" who are " Liberals" in politics. But here he shifts to the other aspect of the Church. His friends are such as have contributed to the building of churches and the extension of Episcopacy. Very excellent things, doubtless; things in themselves, possibly, of superior value to political rights; but still not the things referred to in the proposition which Dr. Hook is anxious to deny. To meet Lord Robert Cecil fairly, Dr. Hook should have been able to state that he found the "Liberals" at Leeds forward in maintaining the Church, not simply as a religious denomination, but as part of the British Constitution. He should have produced his "Liberal" champions of the rights and property, as well as the doctrine and discipline, of the Church. This, we know, he could not do. The " Liberal" Churchmen of Leeds are
