SECESSION OF THE .REV. JOII DODSOX, M.A., VICAR OF COCKERHAM, LANCASHIRE. A correspondent of the Patriot) in a letter to the editor, communicates the following "Sm,Tho extraordinary Essay of the Hon. and Ilev. Baptist W. Noel is effecting a great work. Amongst the friends of the State Church who have read the book, and on whose minds its contents have had a telling and practical influence, is the Rev. John Dodson, Vicar of Cockerham, near Lancaster. Convinced by the facts it details, and the arguments it supplies, of the evil and unscriptural character of the present Establishment, he has nobly unrated the example of Mr. Noel, and for ever abandoned it. Last Friday or Saturday, he sent in his resignation to the bishop of the diocese, which was accepted, and in the afternoon of last Sabbath preached his farewell sermon to a crowded congregation. In taking this step, Mr. Dodson has made many sacrifices. He has left a living worth £ 650 a year, and given up a beautiful residence. The sensation produced by his secession in the neighbourhood is, as might be' ex- pected, very great. I am, yours, &c., Lancaster, March 23, SIGMA."
