THE Merlin of last week in commenting on a pamphlet which has been just put forth by Lord Alvanley, quotes that part of his lordship's pro- duction in which he argues that the Irish Church could not have dissented from a Church which -it had preceded, to which it had never belonged, ;and which had never been ds facto established in 'the country." The greater antiquity of the 'Church of Rome than that of the Protestant tChurch has ever been a favourite boast of its anetabers, and many Protestants on hearing the 'hold and impudent assertion, are apt thought- llessly to admit it as a truth; whereas did they, a" it behoves them to do, make themselves ac- quainted with the history of their own Church, they would nnd that doctrines entirely opposed to those of the Romish Church were prevalent in Ireland long before the Papal Heresy was intro- .duced into that country, to which it has been a 'blight and a curle, Dr. Murray, in his admirable history of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, ;says, "We learn from Dr. O'HaJloran, a dis- tingriiohcd Roman CQ1, gtntiqudry, that about A. D. 369, when Christianity was making such ;i"apid progress in Ireland, a most uncompro- Xftisia g enmity existed in the minds of the Irish ipeople against everything connected with OlJieJ' it would therefore be unreasonable to suppose that it was from Rome they received that instruc- tion which broke down their heathen superstitions, 'dissolved their former system of religion, and jaKodaeed such an important revolution in the minds of all, as ultimately to lead them, with one consent, to profess themselves Christians." We have not at present either time or space to enter at large into the subject, but we cannot conclude without .recommending to the perusal of the 'friends of the Church by law established, the two admirable Sermons preached in November last, 1f1 St. Paul's Church, Newport, to the largest fco&gregation which ever assembled in tha Wiidiog, on the Errors of Popery; the clear, forcible, and masterly manner in which the errors °f the Romish Church are pointed out, an proved by texts of Scripture, demands attentive study, especially at the time when such unblush- ng falsehooc4 are put forth in certain public Journals The above Sermons were most liberally puo- I Wished by the excellent Bishop of Llandaff, at his expense; they are illustrated with copious otes, and a small edition is published at a low j ^ate (6d.) for the benefit of the poorer classes. ^Ve hear that the whole produce of the sale o I I)Oth editions will be given to the Newport I National Schools, in reduction of the debt on that valuable institution.
