ADDITION TO THE MÉMOIR OF PIERRE DU BOSC.-See p. 677. The Memoir of Pierre Du Bosc had been completed, and was printed off, when we found, while consulting his book for a different purpose, that Mr. Orme had brought forward the circumstance mentioned near the end of our Memoir in his life of Owen, He states, from Robert Robinson's Life of Claude, that Stillingfileet, pressed hard in the controversy, and willing to supply by an appeal to authority, the deficiencies of his argument, “got Compton, Bishop of London, to write to Claude, Le Moyne, and other French Presbyterians, for their opinion of English Presbyterianism. They gave complaisant, but wary answers." We differ from Robinson here, for we think their answers, though cvasive, exceedingly unwary, and to say the least, liable to serious misconception. He goes on to state, that these letters were published by Stillingfleet, as suffrages for Episcopacy and against Nonconformity. There could not be a more glaring absurdity; for no art can make that a crime at Dover, which is 'at the same time a virtue at Calais. Episcopacy and Nonconformity rest on the same arguments in both kingdoms, and a man who does not know this is not fit to write on the controversy. Mr. Claude complained bitterly of this ungenerous treatment; but the letters that contained these complaints were concealed till his death; when they were printed by his son.” Whatever may be thought of the indiscretion of Claude, respecting the conduct of Compton and Stillingfleet there can be but one opinion.
