some who were called of God to preach, and

which requires that those -who have been
preaching unchallenged for many years shall

against all enemies thereof." The Roman
CathoHe ArchbishopofSt. Louis, tells his clergy
not to take the oath, but if it be pressed upon
thism, to report the circumstances to him. Else-
