REPORT of the CHURCHWARDENS of the

Parish of Ipswich, for the year ending Easter, 1855:

In presenting thoir Report for the present year, the Churchwardens desire to express the hope, that the marks of progress which it brings before the Parishioners, will be such as to call tor thankfulness on their part, and stimulate them to

still further excitions.

The Sunday Collections, which on the last year had more than doubled the receipts of the preced- ing one, agam shew an increase of nearly £25. It is gratifying to be able to state this fact.

A Glebe of 20 actes was purchased in Novem- ber last for £70 ; the Lord Bishop on his late visit having gonorously made a gift or one half

of the amount.

The Churchwardens, on their own responsibility, purchased for £21 10s the Hatmonium now used in Divine service. Subscriptions towards defray- ing the expenso have been piid into tho Bink of Australasia, to the amount of £9 15s ; and a fur- ther promise of £5 5s has been made for the samo object. It is hoped that some of tho Parish- ioners will cheei fully supply the small sum defi-

cient, £6 10s.

The sum of £22 103. duo for pew seats will not be able to appear till the accounts of next \ear

There being a small debt of £13 8s. 9d. still due on the Church Buildings, the Clrni cb wardens propose that it be paid off immediately, from tho

balance of £35 19s. 2d. as shown iu tho balance sheet.

The last object to which tho attention of the Parishioners is especially directed, is the increased chut eli accommodation," ns recommended in tho Report of last year. The Lord Bishop having held a Public Meeting for the purpose of estab- lishing an Ipswich District Association of tho Newcastle Church Society, the chief woik of which for the ptesent should bo the election of a suitable church, n Committeo was appointed, who me enabled to alibi d a most satisfactory statement, many very large subscriptions having been willingly contributed.

The Committeo ore daily expecting the plans, prepared bv an experienced Architect, when tho building will he immediately commenced. It will then be the inteicst, no less than tho duty, of all those Parishioners who have not contributed, to do so cheerfully, that there may be no cessation in the woik until its completion.

Silt,-I rogret to find that Captain 'Wickham

has mis-Understood my remarks, made at a late meeting, on the subject of the Offertory at St: John's; which I attribute to his" absence, as every person present at that meeting is aw aro that when I alluded to tho niisappropiiution of the collections, I stated, that tho money was col- lected as alms, and was not so applied, conse- quently it was misappiopriated ; and lam quite at a loss to imagine how Captain Wickham, as Treasurer of tho funds collected at the Oll'eriory, could imagine for one moment, that I intended to impute nny than honourable motives to him.

I alluded only to tho misappropriation of tho money collected as alms, and not ¿o applied, which I apprehend has called forth the expression of " most seandnlou-i" in an articlo extracted from the Sydney Morning Herald, and published in your issue of the 31st ultimo. But the term mis- appropriation does not (and never was intended) to convey an imputation against the gentleman acting as Treasurer-, and I deeply regret thnt anything I may have uttered at the meeting in question, should have been so totally misconstrued,

lam, Sir,""',

Your obedjent servant,

TO THE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH OF

, y ENGLAND IN BRISBANE.

1"UIE Church Mooting of Tuesday has in it food

. i tor serious reflection.

AVo find the clergyman of the congregation not content with his power of nominating a Church- warden, on his own behalf, but canvassing for a oliurchwardcn to lcprosont tho renters of sittings. To the sin prise of two-thirds of the fow porsons who were assembled at tho school house, the gentleman chosen by the majority of the renters of sittings was not elected-simply boeauso it was not known out of doors that any other candidate was to bo proposed ; for looking upon the meeting ns having been called for the transaction of moie matter of course business, and therefore of little importance, but few persons

took the troiible to attend.

Does any one amongst i's approve of our clergy- man thus interfering with the small sharo of Church government possessed by the laity?

In the desperate attempt now being made to enforce the offeitory, no slono is left unturned. The end justifies the means.

The conduct of both the clergymen present at the meeting will, I hope, bo seriously considered by every thinking member of the church.

SIR,-I desire to lay befor? tho members of the

Church of England in Brisbane, the follow- ing circumstance which occurred at the meeting on Tuesday last :

The Rev. R. Creyke and Mr R. Davidson, it appears, each nominally hold six sittings Jin the Chin cb, i. e., two of the sittings in Mr. Davidson's name aro in reality held and paid for by Dr. Bal ton; and of the six sitOngs in Mr. Crcyl.e's name three are held and paid for by Mr. li. R. Mackenzie. According to the Temporalities Act, neither Dr. Barton nor Mr. Mackenzie could vote, as their names did not appear in the list of seat holders. But as these gentlemen had attended the meeting, and expressed their intention to voto for Mr. Roberts, as Churchwarden, «hilo Messrs. Creyke and Davidson had brought forward Mr. Thomas Alfurd, I suggested that Mr. Croyko should give three of his six votrs, and Mr. Da\id son two votes for Mr Roborts ; foras both Messrs. Mackenzie and Barton were in reality renters of sittings, it nppoired to mo that it was not right to take advantage of their names not appearing in the list of scat-holders, to exclude them from voting. The Rev. Mr. Irwin said ho approved of my remarks, and Messrs Creyke nnd Davidson dill not demur. Indeed, Mr. Creyke had pre- viously said that he thought ho ought not to give six votes, ns threo of the sittings were Mr. Mac- kenzie's. I thereforo looked upon the matter us

settled.

What, however, was my surprise to find that Messrs. Creyke mid Davidson each gave six votos for their favourite candidate, while Messrs. Mac- kenzie and Burton were precluded from voting altogether, and compelled to look quietly on ! ! !

The above are the plain facts, without note or

comment.

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN MORETON

BAY >m

(Per favour of the Sydney Emjiiie) tj?»

To the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of ¡¡jil

'. i ?" ' Newcastle. jw| MY LORD BISHOP,-Documents havo been M

' published in the public'prints 'of tho colony, ftO as having passed between j our'Lordship and a g>r< largo portion of your flock worshipping at tho f* Church ofSt. John, Moreton Bay/which it cannot jtj*,j bo otherwise than most distrcssingto every member ': j of the Church of England hero, or elsewhere, to |¡¡ií read. ' '" ¿j«

The case appears to stand simply thus. On tho ¡;*j consecration and opening of tho now Church of Si. V John, North Brisbane, your lordship attempted to 'f*< introduce "tho offertory into the morning berrico, y* Now this endeavour to revive ti ceremonial which ' .

had fallen into desuctuede was most repugnant to ,',j the feelings of ¡i large and most influental pot linn j;;*! of the parishioners, who thereupon memorialised j, jj your lordship to suffer the discontinuance of tho 'j v practico. 'h|i

In various parts of their petition these gentle- ¡(" j men characterise the observance of the offertory .is Î being in their opinion-" inimical to religions j (I feelings, and as unseemly interruption of tho >j vvoiship of God ;" na being calculated-"to play ;',i upon tito weaker passions of poor human nature ; ^'j to extort money from those w ho would othci wiso , ¡I withhold it ; to shame ihe sordid into liberality and '%') to profit by_ the vanity of these who love to eNhi- !1' bit, their gifts boforo men." AiKLyet »gain : " To ¿ j introduce tho offertory is to destroy that better ", ! unity, to set friend against friend,'and cause evil S h speaking amongst the enemies of tho Chinch." »jj

Verily, in the words of tho memorial, "it ¿jj behoves your lordship to consider, therefore, nhe- ?,li ther tho couse of Clirist will be promoted by tho « .Sj introduction of tho offertory in defiance" of such a |,f strong expression of feeling as .this. And tltcso \t sentiments are given publicity to as you are pro- | {. bably awaro-not hy ignorant and uneducatul f people, not by men unaccustomed to think mid ti) r i eason ; but .on tho contrary-among the names

itttnohcd to tho petilion are those of tho mest -'' thinking, intelligent, and influential gentlemen in ': Î the district. . . H

And what, my lord, was your reply to this * t memorial ? Why ! a rofusal, based on deductions /, J as little remarkable for their logic as is the whole >¡ j answer for the christian, conciliatory, and Ino- -^f thcily tone it displays. The reasons which your Lordship gives for rofusing the prayer,,ol' the petitioners may bo narrowed to two. The fust is

that :- .

.' Some time since, in the Sydney diocese, a clcrgvmau when appointed to a new district in- sisted upon restoring the offertory. The nietio politiiu was appealed to by those members of tho congregation who dÎMippiôved of the chango, ami was obliged to declare that he had noanthority to direct the discontinuance of the offertory, ns if, was part of the daily appointed order of morning prater. Tho offertory was therefore continued, ont'tho affections of immy of the congregation wete alienated from their pastor, und his poner of ministering to their spiritual ßood almost des-

troyed."

"This sad evil," continues your lordship, "I felt bound to guard against in my own diocese.' ' An evil by which, according to.yonr own showing, -" the affections ol' many of tho congregation wore alienated from their pastor, and his powvr of ministering to their spiritual good almo>t de- stroyed." And how lot mo enquire tho modo in which your lordship seeks to remedy this great ovil? "Why by a curious paucity of reasoning, you apply the very cause that produces this " sud evil" in one congiegatiou to be the samo evil in another. Now like cause generally produce like effects : mid accordingly, 1 find the action fully horne out in the case of St. John's Church, Bris- bane And if your lordship will tuko tho trouble to peruse the printed reports of the meeting which took place in the school-house, on tho 8th instunt, you may possibly como to tho conclusion thntapoi sNtenco in the attempt to foi03 the offertory upon the parishionersol the church of St. John is likely to íesult in the same" sad evil'-' that a similar canso produced in tho Svdnoy district which you haio mentioned, if not to drive a largo and re- spectable portion of the congregation into dissent. And this, my lord, will bo the doing of a Christian Bishop of the Church of England.

The second toason you give is, that the Canons of tho Church and tho Rubrics of tho Liturgy giving yon no option to direct any clergyman lo discontinue the offertory, you had deeidod, to enforce \U observance as " tho only coi tain mode of guarding against the groat ovil mentioned-the estrangement of a congregation from their ii|in ¡stor." To this general rule, then,'to which your lordship will not admit or allow an exception, is the congregation at Moreton Bay sacrificed.

And jot what sayelh the 3-lth nrticlo of oui religion :-" It is not necessary that truditii-m and ceremonies ho in all places one and utterly alike; for nt all times they have been divers, anil may bo changed ncoording to the diversities ol' oountries, times, and men's manners, so that nothing bo ordained against God's word."

What then shall vro think of a Christian Bishop who, for the sako of a matter not involving an important point of doctrine, not demanded or insisted on as imperatively, uecessaiy by tho ar- ticles of our religion, attempts to enforce a cere- mony distasteful to the wishes and in diroct oppo i to tho oxpiessed sentiments of those committed to his diocesan caro ? What shall we say of tho e'ergy mon who, by insisting upon the revival of au obsolete ceremony, "sovs discord among his con- gregation, opens tho way to tchism in the Church, nnd drives, perhap.», u 'portion of the peoj lo to di-Bont? And what shall we say of Iho pintor wh >, unmindful of the little weakness of human natur1, by 1111 injudicious insisfanco upon an oftbte and offensive coicmony, irritates instead of soothing that nature, and goads on his (lock lo a dhplaiv which his conduct lnu foi cod upon them, mid which is not less painful to overy truly Oin ¡stain member of the Church of England tlnm'it certainly is to those-lo that portion of d10 Church - com- pelled to make it, and I hen, 1 havo no doubt, it must he to your lotdship.

My lord, wo are not in the days when men will entirely sjirondor their private judgment to lim mandates ot churchmen. 'J he iaity will lavett voice in the affairs of their churches. Their p.is tii-s must govern thom in love, with iiuiktiass and with chari v. They must set boloto them an en.wmplo of affectionate consult ration for tho feelings,.of others, and of Christum forbj.iiunco and forgivo.uss. They should i-onioinber that, as tho su« cessors of the apostles, they must follow in the steps of their perfect model ; of him whoso thoughts wore ever gteat and whoso actions were over good : in who»o sentimonts towards God, de- votion assumed all her sublimity; and in ulw-o fooling» towards niau, beiiovojenco appeared in »li its beauty ; mid yet in whoso wondrous ohm-iiefcr all those Divine qualities were so blended with cluirity, and " so vnilcd in humility," that lim biokun spirit can in their contemplation find pe.n-e, and the couti ¡to heart of the sinner assurance uf mercy und forgivonoss.

I tint, my lord Bishop,

Your humble brother N

X.
