We have spent enough time over this theory, so coolly assumed, so artfully insinuated, so boldly iterated, of late, in behalf of the Established Church--that its parochial endowments originated in private lay liberality. We have already done more than is necessary to disprove it. But we know our men--and therefore we propose to submit to their consideration the following facts: The tithes now in the Church of England's enjoyment are a certain proportion derived from the annual produce of the soil under cultivation in this country.
