ei tgiou Elitf! teligtmcet. , TIlE, ESTABLISHED CHURCHI., [BY JOHIN FOSTER.] TO.TIIE EDITOR OF THE MORNING CHRONICLE. LJrrTEU II. Sin--ln my former letter the bearing of my observa tions was directed to the Church party generally and collectively considered, as all concurring in the so lemn protest against the supposed change; and I have but slightly. noticed a certain distinction and division within that body; the distinction marked by the apropriaoprtion to a pot tion of its clergy and other mem bers of the epithet Evangelical, by ,assumption on the one side, and derisive concession on the other. The number of the clergy so designated I have seen estimated, I think, in some of the publications in their interest, at as many as one-seventh or one-eighth of th'e wlole. They are for the most part, I am inform ed, quite as zealous as any of the others for uphold irig the Establishrment, and affected with equal horror at the idea ori omens of its fall.

:(.:THE. CHURCH OF El u;LANDD MIS : SIONARY SOCIETY. [TO&ýTHE EDITORS OF TIHE SYDNEY IIERALD.?} .-C~G;ErLMO' tEN,'-1 have just observed in Tuz COmLOIS'r of yesterday, a most unworthy and malicious commentary on a meeting of the Aus tralian Auxiliary Church Missionary Society, on. Tuesday evening last. : he grant for the Aboriginal mission is 5001. instead of 6501. per annum, and I contend is most properly and justly paid out of the Colonial funds. Have we not inoculated the Blacks with. our vices ? Have we not hitherto been a scourge. to themn? Is not Australia bound to ma.ke them some moral compensation? Gentlemen, the'ef-.

TO. THE EDITOR OF TIlE COLONIST. Petersham, Sunday, May 10, 1835. Sir,-Having yesterday evening seen a letter in your paper of the 7th instant, signed Charles Dawson, together with some observations of yours on the contents of that letter, I take this early opportunity of informing you, that the said letter is a wilfully perverted statement, and not withstanding your having guaranteed its correct ness, is false from beginning to end. This I shall establish beyond all possibility of contra diction without loss of time; but to enable me to do so, it will be necessary to procure copies of certain papers which are at present in Sydney. When you presumed to pass an opinion in such uncalled for and unwarrantable language, upon the conduct you falsely attributed to me ; you were not satisfied with stating that you were convinced I was in error, but you have also dared to indulge in reflections which tend to impugn my character as an officer and a gentleman.
