This case is noteworthy for being the first en- forcement during three centuries of the Act of 13th Elizabeth. Hence it has become a precedent in the other ecclesiastical suits, by which the relations between Church and State are being largely modified. Mr. Heath resigned the vicarage of Brading in 1862. He has written " The Future Kingdom of Christ," 2 vols., 1852-3; "The Exodus Papyri," 1855 ; " A Becord of the Patriarchal Age, or the Proverbs of Aphobis, B.C. 1900, now first translated from the Egyptian," 1858 ; and " Defence of my Pro- fessional Character" (1862).
