The Bishop of Rochester, in a letter published on Tuesday,

states his side of the case in relation to the appointment to St. Poore, Walworth, with a certain frankness and manliness, though not without acerbity. He says no delay would have altered his view as to his duty, keenly painful as he felt his duty to be; and therefore he thought the sooner it was done, the better, and the sooner his own view of his duty was ex- plained to the parishioners of St. Paul's, Walworth, by him- self, the better. We quite agree with him. The worst of the strong men among the Evangelicals is not that they are de- ficient in pluck and frankness, but that their views require -them to snub their fellow-creatures so much "on principle."
