For years the Guardian has Walker's letter, I want to remind him of a fact which, though he been busily engaged in luring on Churchmen to back up Mr. Gladstone, mentions it, he appears to forget in his argument. The A P.U.Č. was whether right or wrong. No doubt, when Mr. Gladstone was a Tory, as established to re-unite those who claim the inheritance of the Priesthood well as a sound Churchmen, he was a promising leader ; but time went and the name of Catholic. Because in her present temper, Rome will on and he got laxer and laxer in his political views, till at last he joined have nothing to do with Re-union, there is no need for us to the Palmerston Ministry.

At first, the Church Times open to ns to work for full inter-communion with the Oriental Churches, advocated Toryism as well as Catholicism ; indeed it boasted of having to bring back by prayers and missions the Eastern heretics into greatly influenced the Oxford election when Mr. Gladstone lost his seat the fold, and then, perhaps, we may hope to soften Rome's heart for that Upiversity.
