Dr. Calamy (in his Memoirs lately published Calamy's Life and Times, II. 417.), at the conclusion of hCalamy's Life and Times, II. 417.), at the conclusion of his account of this dispute, in which he refused to take any part, though earnestly solicited on both sides, has the following very just remarks: As to the grand matter which they contended about, be of necessity of one communion. These sentiments are very just; but surely, if they were Dr. Calamy's, he ought, in proper consistency, to have recorded his vote with the non-subscribing majorit

, in order to give such an impression as the human mind, especially at that early stage of its development to which the Scripture history chiefly refers, can most readily comprehend of the wisdom and steadiness of the course of Divine Providence. About the close of the year 1721, Mr. Benson came to London, and having been examined and approved by several of the most eminent Presbyterian ministers, he began to preach, first at Chertsey, and afterwards in London. By the recommendation of Dr. Calamy, he afterwards went to Abingdon, in Berkshire, and settled as minister of a dissenting congregation there, with whom he continued for seven years, diligently employed in studying the sacred writings, and labouring to instruct and improve the people under his care. During his stay at Abingdon, he preached and published three serious practical discourses, addressed to young people, which were well received. But of these he afterwards forbade the reprinting, as containing views of some disp

II. p. 403.) the body of the Dissenters were (unkindly and without any just ground) represented as wavering and unsettled. However this may have been, there can be no question that a large portion of them were fully prepared to resist, to the utmost of their power, every attempt to impose additional restraints of any kind on the converal members of the liberal majority acted as they did, in a great measure, in consequence of his opinion and advice. Dr. Calamy, who declined voting at all on this occasion, speaks of himself as earnestly importuned to come forward by some of theorder, as they expressed it, to prevent Mr. Barrington Shute's endeavour to break the body of ministers to pieces. See Calamy's Life and Times, vol. II. p. 413. Among the multitude of pamphlets which issued from the press on this occasion, was on

ilection for the Roman Catholic religion which at times struggled with his habitual scepticism, his next object was to rid himself of the importunities of sectaries and the trouble of religious controversies by reestablishing the liturgy, and bribing or enforcing conformity to it on the part of the Presbyterians. The history of the successful execution of this purpose is familiar to all the readers of the plausible pages of Clarendon on the one side, or the complaining treatises of Neal and Calamy on the other. Charles and his advisers triumphed, not so much through their own, art, dissimulation, and bad faith as through the blind bigotry, divided counsels, and self-seeking of the Noncon-formists. Seduction on one hand and threats on the other, the bribe of bishoprics, hatred of Independents and Quakers, and the terror of penal laws, broke the strength of Presbyterianism. Baxter's whole conduct, on this occasion, bears testimony to his honesty and sincerity, while it shows him t

Both Cromwell and Vane were unsuccessful states- Chap XI.} men; the first desired to secure the government of England to his family; the other, to vindicate it for the people. The convention parliament had excepted Vane from 1662 June the indemnity, on the king's promise that he should not suffer death. It was now resolved to bring him to trial; and he turned his trial into a triumph. Though before supposed to be a timorous man, Calamy's Abridgment, 99, 100. Burnet, i. 228. He was naturally a very fearful man. Hume, c. LXIII. he appeared before his judges with animated fearlessness. Instead of offering apologies for his career, he denied the imputation of treason with settled scorn, defended the right of Englishmen to be governed by successive representatives, and took glory to himself for actions which promoted the good of England, and were sanctioned by parliament as the virtual sovereign of the realm. He spoke not f

Imprimatur Calamy This Book of the Law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayst observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shall make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.--Josh. 1: 8.
