"So I returned and considered all the oppressions that are done under the
stm: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no com-
forter; and on the side of their oppressors there was Power, but they had no
comforter.'*— Ecclesiastes iv. 1.

SHAUKiLL, PRINTER, ISLINGTON. PREFACE.

To understand rightly "the signs of the times" we must refer to the records of Sacred History;, and to know what is true in religion, we must consult the Oracles of God.

By adopting "the spirit of the age," there is reason to fear we shall depart from the truth of the Gospel, and stand opposed to the Divine authority of revealed religion.

It is evident, that if the principles of what is called Political Economy be acted on with unmitigated severity towards the poor, they will be totally subversive of true Christian charity, and of that "faith which worketh by love."
