THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH. THE COMMISSION ON CHURCH PATRONAGE.—The Commissioners appointed to inquire into the subject of patronage in the Church of England have presented their report. They do not recommend alterations of the present law which would strike at the root of pri- vate patronage, such, for instance, as the prohibition of the sale of an advowson or perpetual right of presenta- tion. They are of opinion that adequate remedies may be found for existing abuses without so wide a depar- ture from the established practice of this country. The Commissioners are, however, of opinion that the sale of advowsons by auction tends to public scandal, and ought therefore to be forbidden. The Commissioners recom- mend the prohibition of sales of next presentations, and that, in order to make this prohibition effectual, provi- sion should be made to prevent any evasion by any pur- chase of the advowson, pur autre vie, or for other limited estate, or by other conveyancing device. Several com- missioners dissent from parts of the report. BISHOP OF LONDON'S VISITATION.—The Bishop of London delivered an elaborate and exhaustive charge to the clergy of the diocese of London, on the occasion of his third Visitation, at St. Paul's Cathedral, on Friday. He expressed his conviction that whatever might be advanced as to the ideal of parochial organisa- tion in Church work, the best way of supplying the deficiencies of the past and providing for the growing wants of the metropolis would be to persevere in the policy of judiciously subdividing overgrown districts, building new churches, and entrusting each to the care of a responsible incumbent. The number beneficed clergy should be increased, and greater facilities should be afforded them for preparatory study but this would necessitate an increase in the means of maintaining them, and for that they must look to the laity. The work of lay helpers was referred to with satisfaction; but the Bishop regretted the adoption in some of the sisterhoods, of rules and regulations which were alien to the mind and practice of the Church of England. He enforced the necessity of maintaining Church schools, whilst pointing out that as yet they had been but little affected by the operations of the School Board. Doc- trinal points were dealt with at some length, and the views of the Bishop with reference to the Rubrics, Hitual, the Real Presence, and Confession, were clearly laid down.
