C. V. Viae, at ^ St. Peter's Churcb, Barclay street, on bun day evening, the '4 4nd Inst,, on tbe Neces sity of a Visible Head, for Perpetuating tbe Unity or tbe Cuurcb. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost?Amen. In St. Matthew, 10th chap ter, and second verse, we read as follows : " Now the names ot the twelve Apoitles are thcie ? The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, Jainea the aon.of Zebedee, and John, his bro ther," be. be. These few words contain the whole of the copi ous subject which it falls to my lot to argue this evening ; and it will be seen in the course of the remarks I shall make, whether the word " first," here applied to Peter, should be taken in its ordina ry acceptation: tor instance, whether the term first means primo, or first in point of collocation, or whether it implies first in point ot supreme authori ty over the other ApoBtles of Jesus Christ. On en tering upon the argument, I presume that the pri vilege which is claimed as the birth-right of Pro testants, will not be refused to me ; I mean the right to interpret the Holy Scriptures according to my own judgment. It I take the text as I tind it, and think proper to interpret the word first as be stowing extraordinary privileges, certainly, accord ing to the principles of Protestantism,ti cannot be condemned. Therefore, in starting upon this sub ject, I find I have, to say the least, as mucti right to interpret the word firtt as bestowing upon Peter the supenority,over the other Apostles, as the Protes tants have to interpret it in any other signification. Tnere could not be a more important subject, none more fraught with absorbing interest, than the pro position wnich I lay down tnis evening?that there must be a visible head of the churcn ; that visible head is the successor of fit. Peter ; and that that visible head is necessary, in order to the conserva tion of unity in the Christian Church, if it can .be proved that Peter was vested with supremacy over the other Apostles, and i( the sovereign Pontiff* are the successors of Peter, it follows that the sovereign Pontiffs are likewise invested with supreme authority. It be comes me, therelore, to prove that Christ bestowed on Peter the prerogative ot supremacy, in the first place; and then the undeniable consequence, that the Roman Pontiff, being the successor of Peter, must likewise be invested with supremacy over the whole catholic world. Could there be auy subject more worthy the candid and religious enquiry of any people I Could there be any subject more vital ly interesting at the present period I Could there be any subject more important in this republic, where the Catholics have been abused so much and so virulently?where so many absurd ideas regarding the supremacy of the Roman Pontiif, aad so inuny calumnies and misrepresentations have been trum petted forth against this doctrine?where the belie vers in this doctrine are stigmatized as the subjects ot a foreign potentate, and unfit to live in tins land ot liberty, which is theirs by birth or by adoption. The subject, then, is extremely important?and leel mg all us importance, I will endeavor to put aside excitement, and avoid all declamation, in order to argue theologically this great and most important dogma of the Catnolic Church. In proving the di vinity of any doctrine ot the Christian religon, we have recourse to two methods?the first is by apply ing the test of the sacred scriptures; and as mankind never can, of themselves, agree with regard to the acceptation of the texts of tbe scriptures, it is neces sary to have recourse, likewise, to the authority of the fathers ot the primitive church. This is the me thod ot proceeding which all trinitartans have re course to, in order to prove the dogma ot the divini ty of Cnnst. If I undertake to prove the dogma of tne divinity of Christ, my first process is to have re course to the sacred Scriptures,Irom which I deduce the evidences ot his divinity. Rut as these texts are not satisfactory to those who reject his divinity, then the believer in bis divinity must have re course to another authority; and that authority is the test of the writings of tbe ancient fathers. When we have the testimony of the ancient fatheri, we aocept the doctrine n having been taught by the Apos tlea, and daatinad to be transmitted through all agea to the end of tbe world do it is in regard to tbe question we are now inquiring into. If I am asked whether the Catholic churcn believes in the supremacy of Peter and the Pope, 1 proceed tirat to examine whatever proofs I fiod in the Holy Scriptures ; and aa I know that the texts will be disputed by others, it is necessary fftr me to have reoourse to the testimony of the primitive church, and sae whether the early lathara taugnt this doctrine. If we find this to be true, theu we rest satisfied in the truth of tbe dogma of the supremacy of Peter end of the Pope. I prove tne proposition, then, first from the Scriptures. But before I enter on the first argument, I beg to bring before you the authority of one of the moat illustrious, and by all denominations regarded and believed to be one of the moat aincere, ot Christian men. The far-famed Mr. Newman, who lately became a member of the Catholic church, in his recent work " on the development of Chiis tien doctrine," speaking of the supremacy of Petar and of the Pope, remarks that after the most mature investiga tion, alter inquiring into the testimony ?1 the earliest fa ther* Of the churcb, upon this and all other disputed doc trines, he discovered that there are fer more clear and explicit authorities upon the subject of the supremacy ot the Pope to be fouud in their writings, than there are to be found on the divinity of Christ. For (he continue*) before the Nicene Council, the whole Christian world was distracted regarding that great doctrine. .Many of the anti Nicana tethers expressed themselves ambiguous ly ou the divinity of Christ, and the question was set at rest only by the Bishops assembled in the Niceue Council But, ha adds, there never was the least disagreement in regard te the doctrine of the su premacy of tbe Pope; that whenever the lathers spoke of the supremacy of the Pope, they spoke of it as a dogmi. which the whole ChiistiHii world agreed in admitting and practising. But I will not I detain you on the details of this inexhaustible s .bject for it would require volumes ta do it justice. Lei us proceed to Scriptural authorities in vindication o( this venerable doctrine of the Catholic church. 1 will call your attention, first, to the Ifith chapter of St. Mathew, irom the ISth to the 19th verses?"When Jesus came into the coasts of Csssarea Philippe he asked hie disciples, saying, Who do men say tnat 1, tbe Son of Man, am i And tney said, Some men sey that thou art John, and

Ha thua characterized Cephas aa I a rock, the aecoudary and visible loundation of the Church, which was about to bo established, and which I was nover to ceaso. 1 know that thh text ia diaputed, I and that it would require much investigation, and far I more time than can now bo snared, to review all the ob. jactlone which are made against it; but it ia a text, the ! meaning of which we know how to vindicate. After ap pealing to this, and also to another Boriptural authority, wo will then have recourse to the the primitive church; and, instead of consulting men of the present time, wo shall consult others, who lived aud flourished beforo there waa any division in the Christian Church; and.wo shall know from them what was believed by all Christiana in the earliest days. Let us turn now the 21st chapter of St. John, the 15th to the 18th verse So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, aon of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these ? He aaith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He aaith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou met He aaith unto him, Lord thou knowest that I love thee. He aaith unto him. Feed my sheep. Ho aaith unto him the third time, 8imon, son of Jonas, lovest thou met Peter waa grieved, because be said unto him the third time, lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord thou knowest all things, thou know est that 1 love thoe. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. \ etlly, yerilv, I say unto thee, when thou wast young, thou girdest thyself and walkedst whither thou woulost; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thv hands, and another shalt gird thee and carry thee whither thou wouldst not." From thia passage we argue; that the Church ia composed of the lambs and the sheep?ol the simple faithful, and of the pastors. But reter was commanded to have charge over the lambs and over the sheep; consequently to him was committed the charge over the whole sheepfold; and we conclude a? 'ovssted supremacy over the whole church. iNowthat we may carry out our usual process of argu menfrtfter having quoted two brie! authorities from sacred Scriptures, let us see what were the teachings of .ne early lathers of the church; and if these teachings bear us out, then we flod ourselves in accordance with them and with the Scriptures?we find ourselves be lieving the identical doctriues taught by the primitive fathers and admitted by the ancient church. After quo ting the first authority, I cannot resist the impulse that I {eel to again refer to the pages of the distinguished and learned Newman on the subject. You ask me If there has been any mention of the word " Tope" in the earliest period of the church? I answer, no; not of the word, no mor? ft*c .'n ear'y Period of the church do we find the word 1 rinity, but the doctrine is thero; for, as Mi. New man remarks, " 8t. Ignatius ia silent in his epistles on the subject of the Pope's authority ; but if that authority was not and could not be in active operation, then such ftilence u not so difficult to account for as the silence ol Seneca or Plutarch about Christianity itself, or of Lucian about the Human people. St. Ignatius directed his doc trine according to the need. While the Apostlea were on earth there was need neither of fiiahop nor Pop#?their power was dormant or axercited by the Apostles. In course of time, first the power of the Bishop awoke, and then the power of tha Pope." Let us see then whether this passage from Newman is in strict conformity with the doctrines of the early fathers. I will first quote St. Irenseus in his first book, chapter 3d. He lived in the third century. " It would be a long task to enumerate the succession of all the churches, but the greatest and most ancient and best known to all, is that church found ?. 8t JIlome by th? AposUas Peter and Paul, which has its traditions irom the Apostles, and its faith announced to men through the succession of bishops coming down to us, by which we confound all those who in any man ner, by self complacency or vain glory or blindness or depravity, adopt what they should not; to this church. On &Prmini e\f mn*? I ? ; ; i*i i. t ' on account of its more powerful principality, it is neces sary for every church to recur; that is, all those who constitute the faithful every where, by those who ere from ell parts, have been preserved the traditions which are from the Apostles." Here St. Irenssus characteri ses the Roman Church as having the more powerful principality of all the churches. Why ? Because over mat church the bishop who was tha successor of St. Peter presided. To that church, he declares all other churches must have recourse: consequently, that church is the centre of unity. Bay not that ho attri butes to it the more poworlut principality because Rome was the most powerful metropolis : that ha referred to tbo temporal influence of Rome ; for we find that the same Irenaius interposed between the Asiatics, who had broached a novel doctrine,contrary to tho Apostolic tra ditions, and the sovereign Pontiff, who was about to ox communicate them. Consequently, we find St. Irenmus carrying out the theory which he has reeorded; end not because Rome was the mere .powerfulcity, but because there resided within its walls the bishop who possessed the more powerful principality than the other bishop*. And the force of his argument will be appreciated the more, when you learn that Irenaus was an Eastern bishop. Let us now consult 8t. Cyprian. Bee his 55th epistle to Pope Cornelius ; and this text has the more point and force, from the circumstance that he bed e dil ferenoe with the Pope Cornelius, on the subject of the re-baptism of heretics, always, however, admitting Cor nelius to be invested with supreme authority. Speak ing of certain schismatic*, he say* : ?? Aftar having ap pointed for themeelvee a ptrudo bishop, thay dare have* recourse to the chair of Peter, and the principal church whence sacerdotal unity emanate*. Nor do they re fleet that the faith of the Romans haa been praised by the Apostlee, and that no perfidy can find acceu to them. He here ipeeka of the chair of fttrr a* being placed in Rome?end wherever the chair of Peter waa, there we* supremacy?bacauae the chair ?/ ftltr end supremacy ere synonymoa* and identical term*. Again, speaking of tha chair of Pater, he aaya : "Although Chriit gave to all the Apostlea attar hia resurrection equal power, yet to manliest unity lie appointed one chair. The other Apoetlee were certainly endowed with equal honor and powar with Peter, but the primacy i* given to Peter, that the ant church of Chriit, and one chair might ba manifest. Can ha who do** not hold this unity believe that he hold* the faith ? Can he who resist* the church, who deserts the chair ef Peteron whom the church i* built, flatter himself that he a* in the church ?" Thi* ia the language of St Cyprian, a* early as th* third century. He says, it " tha? equal power is given to the other Apostlea with Peter?aud who denies that the other Apostlea are equal a* Bishop*, equal in the right of teaching, equal, inasmuch a* they were all sent to establish churches and propogate the gospel? But we contend from this very quotation, that fetor possessed another and a pecu liar prerogative, which was not given to the other Apos tles, and that prerogative, that ke was "first" among them ail?the immediate representative of Christ on earth-?tho visible head of tbe church. flic successor be ing the Horn mi Pontiff, the Roman Pontiff possesses the ?aase I'rerogatire,though ai a mere Buflfttp he it not supe rior to.any other Bishop. It is not a* a mere bishop, then, that he claims superiority, but as the successor of Peter. 8t Augustine, in his second book on baptism, chap. 1, Ififl?" that h A learn. ?i_ Y I " , -wvvmw i/ww? vil fBHlieill, LUBI). 1, ^.,l ?e I#ams from scripture that tbo primacy of the Apostles is pre-eminent in Peter " And in Epistle, Vrtj. ? I ho Itomsn Church is tho seat of Peter." And sermon 131?" in tbe Roman Church, tbe pri macy of the Apostolic Chair, has always pravailed." More explicit language than this could not be used by any modern Roman ' batholic. St. Jerome says: ?? But you say tha church was founded on Peter, though in in other piece it has been on all the Apostles, as all recsiv It W0 -the Kingdom of Heevon, end on them equally ia the firmness of the churoh established ; never Unless, among the twelve, one is chosen, that e head be ing appelated, the occasion of schism may be removed." Here again the seme doctrine ia expressed, sod the seme | doctrine taught by the other father., the "^'/hwn! Jerome ha. confirmed. AmoDg the?, ce,iary .o that there would be unity ; and a. uiUty U nece..?ry forever, there mu.t be a succession forever. , , ,, the nece.iity of a vi.ible head for unity In the Catholic Church.

Jerome lived in the Pr*,a?* *5 't5* would u.e the .ame language-that the church ha. been continued to the present day, Jthrong the .ucceMor. of Peter, who were invested with hi. pre rogatire ; and it i. upon thi. ground that the church, in every country, .indicate, the dogma of the supre macy of the Sovereign Pontiff 1 will adduce wo in stance* from Eccleseastical history, clearly *lndioating thi. dootriue. The firet 1. in case of the council celebra tail at Hinno In Africa, in the day. of St Augu.tine. In the first volume of the Council., wo read that ? can0" wa? rimed by which the Pre.byter. who had fallen into the error, of Lonatism, on their returning; to the chur?jj were not to be ranked in the number cf laymen. But thi. canon wa. not to take effect until ?* ' Tran.marine, or lloman church. Consequently, tnis council of Bi.hop. recogni.ed the .upremacy ol the p ^ I whom they viewed a. the successor of St Peter.

Q l. " admitted by all who recognise the Epl?c?pal authosity. There U no one who believe, in the hierorcV dare to question whether the Pope i. a legitimate Bi.h op?whether he doe. not derive hi. epiicoiml character from the earlie.t time*. A* mere Bi.hop 0 1}?^f l'? " no greater than the Bithop of New Yoik. I*l# neces?? ry to bear in mind that he doe. not claim his ,uP"?a?y a. the mere B,.hop of Rome. The regulation, which he | chooses to make for hi. diocese do not bindus bere, for we are not subject to hi. dioceBanregulation.-weare i I immediately .ut.ject only to the Bi.honappointed over us; therefore, we have nothing more to do with the Pope ? a* the Bi.hop of Rome than we have to do with any I other foreign Bi.hop. The second light in which we view the sovereign Pontiff is a. a temporal sovereign. lie I is so recognised iu Europe and America; and the Catho ! lie. of the United State, have a. little to do with the Pone a. a .overeign, a. with any other sovereign of Eu rope.' He ha. no more authority over me, a. ? temporal sovereign, than any other prince. I recognise not hi. authority?I am bound only by the law. of America, my native country. These law. we Catholic, would all de fend if the Pope, or any other temporal .evereign, should attempt to interfere with them. Therefore, ! J? ""' stand here to vindicate the temporal power of the Pope. He obtained hie temporal dominion., howiiver, from those who hed a right to give them (a? him. If ed his hand beyond hi. patnmony, say not that it wa. tyranny that induced him thus to do, bnt rather ^cog nise the right which ha. been recently defended by au eloquent ?airo of our own country. John Quincy Ad am* in a speech delivered on the Oregon question, in the House of Representative., makes Una concession ui regard to the power of the Pope, and the ground, on which he exercised that power over theCtarutian world " All Christians, before the days of Luther, ?<? ?"' stood the right; and it wa. then heH and admitted, by all Christian nation., that the Pope en the representa tive of Christ on earth." This doMtae, he declares, wa. incorporated with the lawa of nation, before Luther , time. Therefore, if the Popeei?rci.edP?"" nation., thi. privilege wa. conceded to him by the law. of nation., and not olaimed by usurpation. But with his temporal power, 1 repeat, we have nothing to do. If it should degenerate Into tyranny over hi. own people, we would condemn him In the same manner a. we would any other .overeign. The third liglfit^tn wh,^hh^ the Pone. i. a. the .uccea.or of St. Peter. Whether ne raiMm st Rome or Avignon, or whether revolution or chance should drive him to the Mi.sU.ippl, he ?"??'"? ce.sor of St Peter, not because he i. blahop of Rome, but because he has succeeded to the authonty and su premacy which were conferred on the flM' head of the church?St Peter. 1 know there are terrible ideas on to r^ned by the ignorant and prejudiced of this country who do not understand our doctrine ot the ?uPr*J"*cy of the Pope; but I know there are many who, although they deny hi. .upremacy, have the ??UI**Bvt0.T'ndji??le his character in the face of the world. Rev. Mr, John ton in note, page thirteen, of hi. excellent discourse ou ''Church Union," delivered a shorttime since, writes : ,.in high party times, in Oreat Britain, Bisbep Newton ^bUshed hi. work on Prophecy " w m hi. o .feet o ex cite or continue in existence, an hatred of the B|I=?P of Home. Hence be gathered all the prophecies which relate to the ri.e of some future power antagonist to the Church of Chrirt. and applied thsm to theBi.hopof Rome. ThU fell in with the vulgar prejudice, and ha. been received for truth stnee. Whoever would see a full refutation ot thi. theory, in all it. part., and an un answerable argument to prove it. ntter fallacy, would do well to read "Discourse, on the Prophecies relating to anti-Christ in the writing, of Daniel and St. Paul, preached before the University of Dublin, IMS, by Jas. H. Todd, B. D. Fellow of Trinity College, ?haveb.en surprised that thU haa not been reprinted In the Uuite.l States." It would be a loaa of time, and descending be neath the dignity of our subject, to vindicate the succes sor of Peter egain.t the opprobrious and blaspemou* epi ?hit of ant. ChrUt. There U another point to which I -j.k *0 direct your attention : It it no doctrine of the Catholic Church that the Pope U infallible.
