contract of sale or slavery for the body, which our laws refuse to recognise. If the domestic relations, if the conjugal and paternal affections of educated, or it may be high-born subjects of her Majesty are thus given over into the absolute control of the Pope and his myrmidons, we can well judge what sort of freedom will remain for the discharge of duties merely public and political, and how the worst charges of Mr. Spooner and of Exeter Hall are likely to be more than justified. We would earnestly hope that a gentler and a better spirit may yet come to prevail over the extravagant unruliness of these hierarchical tendencies. We are confident that there are still many members of the Church of Rome who join in this desire. If it be fulfilled, then we may yet see tolerable peace maintained between the Roman Catholics of this country and the British Constitution ; but if otherwise, then we fear the contests, which our fathers waged so long and so bitterly, will ere long be painfully revived. In that unhappy case we predict that one among the main conditions exacted by the British people from its rulers, of whatever political complexion, will be this—that they shall take care that the privilege of sharing in the administration of a free government shall be extended only to the free ; and that the Roman Pontiff, though he might have co-religionists, shall not have serfs or slaves, in the Great Council of Queen Victoria and of the British Empire.
