PROBABLE FFFECT OF THE OPPOSITION TO DR. TEMPLE. Apropos of the protests entered against Dr Temple, •he (iuurdinn s*ys it. is no use disguising It that we are vithin a few eps of n serious schism. If men, says our ontempoeary. mean what thev say, especially if men in 'i gh places and with great responsibilities mean all that >hpy have siid, words have heen spoken and acts (lono vhicb seem to involve vpry grave consequences. When •ight of thp provinC\6 of Canterbury, four of them n the most formal manner under hand and seal, have it the la«t moment signified their solemn protest against I consecration whi"b has every outward and legal •haracter of regularity, and when we are told, in what iR. ve suppose, to be tak"n as a communique, "on the be«t luthority," that "the gravest doubts rest, in the uiinion of many best able to j-idge, u to the canonioity >f Dr. Tempie's consecration, and the validity of the orders whirl] he may confer," that "no lapse of time can make him a rightful bishop." and that "nothing hnf a public and solemn retraction of the essav will enable orthodox bishops to hold communion with him"— ;t is impossible to deny that the foundations have been laid for as dangerous an internal division M ever threatened the unity 0' the English Church since the Reformation. No one would wish to overstate or to make the worst of acts which even opnr, the pos-ibility of finch a catastrophe. No one would wish to hind the tuthors of these protests to what wilt "eem to many, and what many will call for as the natural and inevitable conseqnences of them. But wh n excommunication or refusal of communion shows itself not obscorel) in the background, and the question is o»Anpd about 'he validity I, of the! ofd ;rs which the Bishop of Exeter will probably have to confer in the Course of the next fortnight. It becomes of high importance' thtt we shouM all know where we are. on what ground we '\1'1" ¡""ndlng, what we frionsly and in earnest intend hy otfr words, and whether we have Iroked forward to whRt tbey eommit UI to. Is It too much to ask those (concludr* the Guardian) W'10 can influence the fortunes of the English Churoh whether they are prepare i to carry out w'lat is implied in the protests? and if they are not, was it wise to pre- sent them?
