MR. SPURGEON'S CIRCULAR TO THE LAMBETH ELECTORS. Mr. Spurgeon has issued a circular to the Liberal electors of Lambeth in which he says I am informed by persons of judgment that if the Liberal cause should not succeed in Lambeth at this election it can only be through the apathy of its professed supporters. I trust that no such apathy now exists, and that every Liberal elector will present himself at the poll. The crisis involves such weighty matters that every man should record his vote for that which he conscientiously believes to be the side of right. Indifference will be a crime against the best interests of the commonwealth. I can under- stand that quiet people are anxious to avoid the noise and worry of mere party strife. I do not look upon the present contest in that light. We have something else to consider besides our own ease and personal advantage. Great interests are at stake, and he who does not vote for the right, will by his silence give consent to the wrong and become a sharer in it. Do you sorrow over the warlike policy which has thrust might into the place of right, and invaded weak nations with but scant excuse? Then return the two candidates who are opposed to the Beaconsfield Ministry. Do you believe that constant bluster creates political uneasiness, disturbs our peaceful relations with other nations, and thus hinders trade and commerce? Then send to Parliament the Liberal candidates to strengthen the hands of Mr. Gladstone. Do you believe that great questions of progress at home should no longer be pushed into a corner ? Then increase the number of men who are the advance-guard of liberty. Lovers of religious equality, your course is plain, and you will not leave your duty undone. With hand and heart support the men who would rid religion of State patronage and control. You who would ease the national burdens by economy and retrench- ment, vote for Messrs. M'Arthur and Lawrence. You who would promote temperance cannot support the party whose most eager partisans belong to the opposite camp. Imagine another six years of Tory rule, devoid alike of peace and progress, and you will rouse yourselves to do your duty, and all hazard of a repetition of the Southwark disaster will be far away.
