ART. 1.- NOEL ON BAPTISM. Essay on Christian Baptism. By the Hon. and Rev. BAP

TIST W. NOEL. London and New-York. 1849.*

The secession of Mr. Noel from the Established Church of England, on account of its union with the State, as well as its numerous corruptions both of doctrine and discipline, is justly regarded both in this country and in Europe as a significant event. More significant still is his frank and courageous adoption of Baptist sentiments. For these are not, as some would have us believe, mere sectarian notions, or trivial distinctions, having no relation to the great body of evangelical truth, or the practical working of our common Christianity. Were this the case, no earnest and comprehensive mind, like that of Mr. Noel, would attach to them the slightest importance, above all would make them the ground of a painful separation from his Pædobaptist brethren.

It is difficult, perhaps, in this country, thoroughly to appreciate the change, not merely of opinion and practice, but of position and influence, which such a movement involves.
