"A strong remonstrance has been addressed, by the parishioners of
St Nicholas, Warwick, to the Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry, for suffering Dr. Wade to be a non-resident at his living at Warwick."—Morning Herald.
We are surprised at this. The Doctor's parishioners ought to rejoice at his absence. A political parson can never make a good parish-priest—whatever side in politics he may adopt. The pamphleteering Bishop of Exeter and the spouting Rector of St. Nicholas have equally contrived to disqualify themselves for rightly performing their clerical duties. As long, however, as Bishops have seats in the House of Peers, the active interference of the subordinate clergy in political brawls, can hardly be animadverted upon with propriety by their Diocesans.
