Art. I.—Mr. John MORLEY .

Suitableness of the occasion for considering Mr. Morley

as a teacher-He is distinguished by the depth and sin-

cerity of his faith : what is that faith ?- It shall be

attempted here to answer in his own words—His dogma

is "the Revolution;" to him " Révolution, Revelation"

His thoroughness in applying Revolutionary principles

and maxims-Bitterness of his language against clergy

and Church and Christ Himself-His Positivist creed,

chiefly negative : the existence of God " insoluble

question : the soul “only a function of the body”.

The new ethic based on negations also ; no hereafter ;

free-will unmeaning—Mr. Morley's illogical conclusions:

and the evil consequences of his “moral” teaching—The

great work of the Revolution, now, is to banish religion

from primary education : Mr. Morley's sentiments

thereon.

Art. II.-PROTESTANT Missions IN SOUTHERN INDIA-TANJORE

Tanjore one of the, if not the, oldest Protestant Mission

in India; we may expect to see results, here, at the best

advantage-Sketch of Swartz's life and missionary

success: Macaulay's witness to the state of the Tanjore

mission thirty years after his death-Present (not im-

proved) condition of the mission, gathered from recent

Reports—Real sources of weakness in this mission :

“divided against itself” as to doctrines; and the " pay-

ing system”-A summary of results in the word

decay."

Art. III.-THE ENGLISH CONSTITUTION IN THEORY AND

PRACTICE

Introduction—Theory of the English Constitution : Montes-

quieu, Blackstone—Practice : History of changes in the
practice of the Constitution since the Revolution-Com-
parison between the English Constitution and (1) the
American Constitution, and (2) Colonial Constitutions-
Concluding remarks on Home Rule and Federation.
