Excerpt from Essays Contributed to the "Quarterly Review", Vol. 2 of 2

M on of our readers may have seen the effect of the stirring of some deep and' stately stream by the sudden pouring into it on every side of the thousand freshets which have been awoke by an unwonted fall of rain. There is a rising up of dead and forgotten things from its tranquil depths which might stand for an acted parable of the great final awaken ing of all departed words, and thoughts, and actions. The present aspect of religious thought amongst ourselves seems to have been subjected to some such law of disturbance. There is scarcely a question of criticism or interpretation scarcely a faint struggle over a principle, a regulation, or a creed, however deep it may seem to have been buried, how ever long the quiet waves have ?owed over it, and babbled nothing of its presence - which is not being stirred up and brought to the surface of the present seething, edd ying tide of theological thought.
