Among the many important measures of national legislation brought forward in a late session of parliament (1836), in this country, there is one having a special bearing on prophecy and on the state of the Jews, which seems to have gained but little attention, and yet to be fraught with consequences of such deep moment as to call for distinct remarks. In June, 1836, a bill was brought in by the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Mr. Baring, for admitting Jews to the same rights, franchises, and privileges as Roman Catholics have been admitted to, on taking the oath and subscribing the declaration required of them, omitting the words, "upon the true faith of a Christian.” It has had too large a support, and is too agreeable to the spirit of the age, not to occasion just anxiety.

Several petitions in favour of this bill were offered. One from a Hebrew Congregation meeting at Edinburgh, is much in the high-minded spirit of infidelity, boasting in “the enlightened spirit of the times,” and mourning "their degraded situation," as "resulting" not from their own sin and unbelief, but from "disqualifying laws;” and claiming “from their proverbial loy. alty, [408] peaceable demeanour, and industry," an equality with all other classes, “at the hands of an enlightened legislature, the representatives of a great, free, and liberal nation." 0 how different a spirit from that to which the Jews will soon come. Lev. xxvi. 40–42; Isaiah x. 20, 21.

Another petition was from the Lord Mayor, Aldermen and Commons of the City of London in Common Council assembled, and it is so public and painful an evidence of the departure of those in high places from “the true faith of a Christian, to use the words of parliament, that I cannot but transcribe the petition, as a most affecting symptom of that departure in leaders of a professedly Protestant nation.

“That your Petitioners look back with lively feelings of pleasure upon

the liberal course which has been adopted by the Legislature during the last few years, in successively removing those civil disabilities to which Protestant Dissenters and other British subjects had been previously subjected on account of differences of religious faith.

“That in the opinion of your Petitioners, his Majesty's subjects professing the Jewish religion, by loyalty to their king, obedience to the laws, and by the observance of the various duties of social life, have established an irrefragable claim to a full
