THE BISHOPS AND DR COLEI;SO.-The Bishop of Natal has published the following reply to the Episcopal Re. &noDstrances: Iy Lord Arelibi-ghop,-I have seriously considered the adddress which has been forwarded to me by your Grace, signed by a great number of the bishops of the Church of England. Ia reply, 1 feel obliged to say that I am unable to comply with the suggestion therein conveyed to me, that I should resign my Episcopal charge. I trust that I yield to none of your Lordships in a heart- felt reverence for the Holy S criptures. But certlinly I do not believe, as the words of the address seem to imply, that >our Lordships do believe, that all your hopes for eternity rest' on the literal hi-t ,rical tr jth of such a narrative as the scriptural account of the Noachian Deluge. But 1 must refer to my books for a statement of the reasons which justify to my own mind the course which I am taking. To resign my office would be to admit that my conduct has h?en legally or morally wrong, Which I am very far from feeling. Rather, I am persuaded that my duty to God and the National Church, through which 1 have received, in the same manner as your lordships, that Episcopal commis- sion whi h we have no power of abdicating, requires me to persevere in the task which 1 have undertaken-namoly, to s't before the English Church the facts of the case in regard t,) the composition of the Pentatu^h, in accordance with the most trustworthy results of recent criticism. I venture to aid that the progress of true religiou appears to me io b" urievoasly impeded in this country by the contradictions which undeniably exist between the traditional notion of the historical truth of all the narratives contained in the Pentateuoh and the conulusious of science, as now brought within the comprehension, even of the youth of both sexes by trie general extension of education. And it is my fi..m 0 inviction that 'his subject deserves, more than any other at tnis time, our most serious consideration, and, if possible, our united action, as bishops of the National Chuich."
