For Sunday Afternoon. "I will sing of merey."—Psa. ci. v. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
Eor Sunday Afternoon. " I will sing of merey."—Psa. ci. v. 1. Benedict XIII. decreed that wlien the German Catholics met each other, they should always give the following salutation, the one first speaking saying: ".Praised, be Jesus Christ," the other responding1, "For ever, amen," a salutation lit for Protestants coming together for divine worship. The word "mercy" is used in the Bible two hundred and fourteen times; it seems to be the favourite word of all the Scriptures. Sometimes it glances feebly upon us like dew in the starlight; then with bolder hand it seems to build an arched bridge from one storm-cloud of trouble to another; and then again it trickles like a fountain upon the thirst of the traveller. The finest roads I ever saw are in Switzerland: they are built by the Government, and at very short intervals you come across water pouring out of the rocks. The Government provides cups for men and troughs for the animals to drink out of. And our King has so arranged it that...

Remuneration of 20 per cent, will be allewed for all advertisements and 25 per cent, for all subscriptions. For turther ■nnrticulars implications should be addressed to Rev. Dr. Dili. Macky.

Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the views our correspondents.) RITUALISM. To the Editor of "The Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the views our correspondents.) * eituausm. To the Editor of " The Watchman." 1 Sir,—Having devoted considerable space in your journal to what you are pleased to term 11 Romisli practices in Anglican Churches," I beg of you to allow me very briefly to show in I a small measure the wide difference between i the two churches. The oft repeated assertion, that the congregations attending the so-called " High Churches" in Sydney are unable to understand that wide difference, is a reflection upon the intelligence of the worshippers; they are generally very well qualified to judge for themselves, more so, in fact, than those timorous people, who imagine that a Jesuit priest must be hidden beliind evezy symbol of the cross. There can be no unity between the Church of England and Home. " The Bishop of Homo hath no jurisdiction in this realm of England " and High Churchmen have no desire that ho should, and while Home claims to be the "...
CAVE. To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
CAVE. To the Editor of the 11 Watchman.1' Sir,—It is an old proverb •' Whom the God's . destroy tliey first drive mad," and the pre- , vailing1 blindness and the apathy in our midst to Papal aggression gives a dread of the prophetic fulfilment of this- proverb in connection ' with our infant Commonwealth. Years of residence in France and intimate acquaintance (so far as a British Protestant might) with religious and State institutions, and in later years, constant perusal of French anti-clerical literature, enabled me perhaps more clearly, than others without such opportunities, to gauge the dangers to colonial Protestantism ignorant of, or indifferent to, the modus ' operandi of Romanism. France, the eldest son of the church and ' mainstay, of Popedom, with the birth of Republicanism, began drifting from her allegiance, and Bunyan's representation of decrepit, impotent Papacy, fairly represents its national status in that country at this moment. In pu])lic there are still church ce...

BAPTISTS AND INFANT BAPTISM. (To the Editor of "The Watchman.") [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
BAPTISTS AND INFANT BAPTISM. , (To the Editor of " The Watchman.") Sir,—In your otMtarise admirable leading article In the Watchman of March 29th on the subject of "The Union.of Protestant Churches" I regret to notice that you have, quite unintentionally I believe, done a very serious injury to the reputation of the Baptist denomination. You state, " Many of the leading ministers of the Baptist Church, as is well known, baptise infants, recognising the act as a simple dedication of children to God on the part of their parents," etc. Now, Sir, so far as my knowledge goes this statement is absolutely incorrect, as I do not know of one duly recognised Baptist minister who baptises infants. Such a practice would be utterly inconsistent with our denominational position and our understanding of the teaching of the Word of God. Where the mistake has probably arisen is in confounding the practice of some .Baptist ministers in dedicating the children of godly parents with the act of baptisin...
The Protestant Watchtower. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
The. Protestant Watchtower. Home Rule— Dr. Kelly said hard tilings and soft tilings concerning it. He talked about "martyred Ireland" as if that were the present State. He said:—" They might hope that they might have an Irish administration sitting in Dublin Castle, and that they would have Irish members in the British Cabinet; and to put it more practically, that they might have John Dillon and John Redmond, and men of that kind, invited by His Majesty King Edward VII., to bring peace and prosperity to ill-governed, martyred Ireland." But why is Paul Kruger, Do Wet, and Steyne, left out of this " cabinet of curiosities," when Dillon and Redmond are taken in? Kruger is-not more hostile than Dillon. * # * # A Petition to King Charles II.— Dr. Kelly's suggestion reminds us of a petition sent to Charles U. and thus described by Rochester. * #. * * - The Petition— " In all humility we crave, our Sovereign may be our slave; and humbly trust that he may be betrayed by us most loyally, and...

SCOT'S CHURCH BRANCH. Tlie usual monthly meeting was held ox: Wcjfyesday evening at Scot's Church, when Mr. T. B. Watt delivered a most interesting lecture on "William, Prince of Orange." A full report will appear in our next issue. The monthly meeting of the Chippendale Brauch of the A.P.D.A. was held in the Wesleyan* Church, Chippendale, on the 10th inst. Rev. F. Colwell presided, and there was a good attendance of members and visitors. The Rev. Dr. Dill Macky gave an address on "The Domination of Rome," and urged the necessity of Protestants awaking from their apathy before this new land was overshadowed \ by Rome Rule. He strongly advocated the Woman's Suffrage, as he believed it would be helpful to the home and nation. At the close of the meeting over 40 new members were enrolled.
ANGLICAN AND CATHOLIC PRACTICES. To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
ANGLICAN AND CATHOLIC PRACTICES. To tlie Editor of the " "Watchman." Sir,—Being a oonstant reader of both the Watchilvn and tho " Catholic Press," I naturally see botli sides of every question vitally affecting tho issue of each particular religious craft. ' In reading tho 14 Catholic Press " of March 22nd last, I cauie across an article under the above heading, -which X would like you to notice: "It is becoming a matter of great difficulty in some towns to distinguish between tho services at the Catholic churches and those at tho Church of England places of worship in England. We are informed that at the Anglican Church of All Souls, Brighton, masses are regularly celebrated by clergymen in vestments, who use incense. One of the ministers told us recently that masses for the dead are celebrated in black vestments, and confessions are heard in the church. At the Church of St. Bartholomew, Brighton, the system is said to bo pretty much the same. There are in tho buildings several con...

Kings and Kingdoms. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
Kings and Kingdoms. " My mind to me a kingdom is," is a well\x=req-\ known and oft-repeated saying, yet I wonder how many are really Icings and queens of their dominions, capable of holding absolute sway. H'ive you the reins of government ? Are all your subjects loyal, carrying out your wishes to your satisfaction ? In a word are you The Supreue Ruleb of your mind ? for, if not it is not your kingdom in anything but name, and you are a powerless monarch. Take away the loyalty that surrounds England's throne, and what would become of the boasted pride and gloiy of the Empire? Follow its history through the rule of Celts, Saxons, Flantagenets, Tudors, Stewarts, and Brunswicks, and you will find that all the war and bloodshed have tended to make it a kingdom where rebels must submit to its laws or die, where the crowned monarch must be regarded as chief in the realm, receiving obedience and homage as his dues. The Individual Mind must be subdued in the same way. There must be a monarch...
News of the Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
News of the Churches. The Bozelle Methodist Church, Balmain, was crowded on Thursday last, the occasion being a send off to the Rev. X Penman, .wfio is leaving for Parramatta. Mr. T. Cater occupied the chair. Addresses were given by the Rev. J. Nairn, Messrs. P. Bradshaw, and C. Pearce. The speakers spoke in high terms of Mr. Penman's many qualities in reducing church debts, in adding members to the roll, and altogether his two years work had been of great value to the district. Special mention was made of the family who had always taken a prominent pail: in the choir and Sunday-school work. Ifc*. Price, on behalf of the members and friends, presented Mr. Penman with a purse of sovereigns. Mr. Penman feelingly replied, and spoke of the happy relations between liimself and the people. Solos were rendered by Miss Brett and Mr. Watkins. Refresments were served at the close. The friends in connection with the late P.M. Pyrmont, assembled at the house of Mr. Pearce, Crown-road, on Monday...

MISREPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
MISREPRESENTATION. AiiCHBisnor Kelly lias again "been putting forth the claims of the Roman Catholic Church in Australia to a State subsidy for liis schools, and declares his intention of returning again and again to this subject until the demands of his Church are satisfied. It is difficult to find out what really is the extent of the claims perpetually being made, since every settlement of one set is but made the stepping-stone for further demands. The hand of the beggar is kept continuously outstretched with insatiable greed, craving for alms from certain people from whom Roman Catholic priests should be ashamed to beg. Probably nothing will ever ; satisfy them 6hort of total extinction of every religion but their own. It is well known that ! their church is continually receiving substantial support from the Protestant community here and elsewhere. This lias been granted out of generosity, pity, and absence of bigotry generally, and it is a matter for regret that this meritorious...

Obiter. Dicta. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902
Obiter. Dicta. The troopship Drayton Grange is due in Port Jackson waters some time this week. She has on board the Tenth New Zealand Contingent, who are desirous of " seeking the bubble reputation even in the cannon's mouth," in South Africa, and Mr. Seddon, Premier of Haoriland, who is on his way to the Coronation. In the " big smoke " celebrations Premier Seddon, the great N.Z. loyalist, will deservedly be the white\x=req-\ haired boy in the group of visiting Premiers. Our own Barton, albeit Federal Prime Minister of a newly fledged Commonwealth, will be a lesser light than the progressive Imperialist for Barton's half-hearted policy in recent times of despatching troops to aid Britain in the Boer war, is not yet forgotten by " Joey " Chamberlain.
