DR. TAIT AND THE ROMAN COUNCIL. An important correspondence has taken place be- tween the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, as to the advisability >>t the English episcopate adopting any protest against the claim for the Pope's infallibility which is likely to be set up by tlieCEcumenioal Council. The Bishop. in a letter to his Metropolitan, on the 16th inst. says, "many serious people, I understand, deem it desirable that the bishops of th»> English Church should place on record some protest in reference to the present Council in Rome. T can quite under- stand the local feeling that might move many to judge such a course to be expedient for the present time. At the same time I cannot but feel. first, that. if the protest be against the assumed nature or composition of the Council, it ought to have been made long ago, when the Council was summoned secondly, that, if the protest be levelled against any doctrine which it is supposed the Council may promulgate, it would be a protest against a doc- trine with which, by the nature of the case, the re- formed Church of England has but little to do. B^ing in this difficulty, I venture to ask your Grace's coun- sel and advice." In answer to the letter, the Arch- bishop of Canterbury wrote, on the i 7th I will, as you suggest, repeat jJllhl;dy what I have already written privately to another member of our order. I cannot, as at present advised, persuade mvselt that it is desirable for the Episcopate of the Eng- lish. Church to come forward and issue a protest against the papal infallibility. The statements of our Church, as set forth in the articles and formul- aries touching the claims of the Church of Rome, are so full and explicit that they seem to lile to re- quire neither explanation nor addition. The most dignified, wise, and sober plan for us to adopt as I think, is to let Rome take her own course. The Church of England, as far as I know, has not at present been addressed by the Pope or his so-called (Erumenical Council, or by any person whatever; and I cannot see the necessity for us to go out of our way to put forth a manifesto. I fully expect !hat if the supporters of the claims of infallibility are let alone they will do their own cause infinite mischief and great good to the cause of truth. I am -ere that the English nation does not expect any dec'a; ation of action from us other than can be secured bv a steadfast adherence to our principles both in onr practice and in our teaching.
