UNFOUNDED CHARGES AGAINST A CLERGYMAN. THE CONSEQUENCES OF AN INACCURATE REPORT. AMUSING CORRESPONDENCE. Considerable excitement and indignation appeal to have been aroused by the expression attributed to the Rev. R. H. Hadden, of St. Botolph, Aldgate, at the last meeting of the City of London Union, to the effect that, instead of making the paupers happy at Christmas time, he would render their lives in the workhouse "horribly and profoundly miserable." On Tuesday afternoon at the guar- dians' meeting the Rev. R. H. Hadden entered into a long explanation, saying that he was a man who had been hard and unjustly hit through an in- accurate and inadequate report of his speech in one of the City papers having been copied into and commented upon in a vast number of newspapers throughout the country. What he said last week. was restricted to the idle, incorrigible loafers who came to the workhouse at Christmas timp, and what began in a joke had developed in a most serious manner. There was an old saving, I- Giva a lie an hour's start, and you will never catch it but if they gave an inaccurate report 48 hours' start, the man who made the speech must suffer tremendously. That report had found its way into every corner of the country, and he had received sheaves of letters on the subject- one from Brighton, calling him a" hypocritical demon "-(laughter)-while another, who fore- stalled the future in a way he should not like to do. said, I would not give much for your chances of heaven." (Laughter.) But the most pro- nounced of all lie would read. It was as follows:- Fool and hypocrite,âYou live by a lie, and I, with other working-men, will soon expose your tyrrani- cal, lieteroclitic, and asinine re(-alcitt-,ition- (tatigitter)-from the true Church, by disestablishing and disendowing you. (Roars of laughter.) Here's damnation to youâfourteen of usâin a gallon of beer. (Laughter.) Bravo! Bradlaugh. Miserable fool, the time is corning when you shall be horribly and profoundly miserable! Wretches like you would never be anything eloe-devils-wolves in sheep's clotbing-whited sepulchres. Take your- self to the 11-- you would make for others." (Laughter.) This was no laughing iratter for him, who had a reputation to maintain, and he wished it to go forth in the press that his remarks, incor- rectly reported by one paper, and copied into hun- dreds of others, had produced a false effect. The retharks he made applied only to the lazy, incor- rigible loafers whose lives, he again said, he would make miserable until they were driven out of the workhouse. (Hear, hear.) All the othersâthe sick, the young, and the agedâdeserved and received every consideration.
