THE ALLEGED OUTRAGES IN SERVIA. The following telegram, dated Sept. 17th, has been received at the Foreign Office from her Majesty's ambassador at Constantinople:—"In. reply to inquiries as to alleged outrages by the Turkish troops in Servia, Sir Arnold Kemball telegraphs that there can be no truth whatever in the reports of outrages on women and children by the Turkish troops, because the villages are found quite deserted. Some helpless men and women, who had been abandoned, were kindly treated and sent to Nisch. Although he cannot answer for the deeds of the Circassians, who lift cattle in the face of the enemy's force, he had no reason to believe that outrages of the nature referred to have been committed by them."
THE WEATHER, THE CROPS, &c. The Mark-Lane Express says :—" Although in, the southern districts the brilliant August sunshine enabled harvesting to be carried out in. a favourable manner, a large proportion of the cereal crops in the north remains unsecured. Sprouted grain and deteriorated condition have characterised the supplies of grain at many of the northern country markets, and thrashing has been stopped by frequent rains. The seed crops have also sustained injury, and mustard and rapeseed especially appear in considerably less quantity than usual, and in deteriorated condition. In Scotland barely half the cereal crops have been cut. In Ireland the outstanding grain is suffering in colour, and sprouting. Farmers continue to market their new wheat very sparingly, and those who had been fortunate enough to secure their crops in good order are in no hurry to sell, now that there appears a probability of better prices and the bulk of the supply is more or less affected by damp. The imports of wheat, although still fair, show a slight decrease on the previous week. Those of the past month are little more than one-half what they were during the corresponding period of last year."
SINGULAR & FATAL ACCIDENT. An extraordinary fatality occurred during the voyage of the mail steamer Cimbria, which arrived at Plymouth from Now York on Sunday evening. The Danish vice-consul at Dinamorca, PDrto Rico, was reading in deckhouse near open door, and, as the vessel was pitching in a heavy sea, he was recommended to exchange his chair for a fixed bench, but he declined to do so, and almost directly afterwards the vessel lurched, and he was hurled head foremost through the doorwaY1 and, pitching against the iron bulwark, fractured his skull, and died shortly afterwards.
MR. HOMERSHAM COX ON HAPPY MARRIAGES. How to make home happy," by Mr. Homer- sham Cox, County Court Judge. "Got married at church." We have heard, we think, of unsuc- cessful marriages in which the knot was tied by a clergyman, but Mr. Cox may perhaps set us right on that point. In a case at Dolgelley County Court, a witness having stated that she was married, as the law of the land allows her to be, before the Registrar, Mr. Cox remarked that if she had been married at church she might have been happier. It may be a small matter for a judge in a court of law to depreciate one of the legal forms of marriage and encourage foolish people, who think a judge ought to know," to think lightly of the bonds they have contracted with the sanction of the law. This is a point we leave for His Honour's consideration. What the public, who are interested in increasing the number of happy marriages, want to know is, where the church is to be found that will secure for them matrimonial felicity; and Mr. Cox, we think, having gone so far, is bound in the interest of humanity to go a step further and enlighten us on this important point. Of course, Mr. Cox would not make a silly remark that has no meaning. He would not use his j udicial position merely to enforce his own ecclesiastical opinions. He must be too impartial and high-minded for that. Clearly he knows-by happy experience perhaps ?-of some magical building where the coveted secret of ensur- ing a happy marriage is possessed, and if he keeps it locked up in his own bosom he is less benevolent than we take him to be.-Carnbrian News.
SAD RESULT OF A FAMILY QUARREL. On Thursday, Sept. 14th, while a widow named Armstrong and her family, residing in a cottage on the banks of the river Coquet, near Felton, Northumberland, were seated at dinner, some altercation took place. Suddenly the daughter, Jane, aged 22, rushed out and threw herself into the river, which is close to the house. Her brother, Thomas, aged 16, plunged into the water to rescue her, and, after a struggle, both sank and were drowned. The river at the place is 16 feet deep, as there is a dam for a woollen factory close at hand.
THE NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD OF 1877. Fourteen years have elapsed since the town of Carnarvon undertook to hold the national eisteddfod of Wales within the walls of its historic and time-honoured Castle. That great national festival proved a great national success. Its promoters then were men of business aptitude, of ullwearing energy, of shrewd tact,of well-known rectitude, and the result was that a handsome surplus crowned their indefatigable exertions. Again is the fine old castle to witness a similar I great national gathering next year. The men of 1862 are, many of them, still living and lending the Carnarvon Eisteddfod of 1877 all their zeal, their talents, and their influence. Aided by an influx of new blood, they are resolved upon making the forthcoming festival, if possible, a greater success than either that of 1862, or that held a few weeks ago at Wrexham. From our personal knowledge of the gentlemen composing the various committees, we are per- fectly satisfied that the eisteddfod is in safe hands. Nothing could more surely indicate this than the fact that at the Executive Council, held on Tuesday evening, there was a strong disposition to pay particular attention to the financial department of the project, and that a balance sheet, certified by two independent auditors, outside the company of guarantors, should be presented to the country within two months of the eisteddfod. This, in particular, is a matter which we consider a fair and sure proof that the eisteddfod of 1877 is managed by men who feel their responsibility, and who have been made wise by the lessons of the past. We, therefore, heartily wish the undertaking signal success. We trust that in a literary, musical, artistic, and industrial sense, it will exercise a wide and permanent influence for good on our country and our countrymen generally. If the Executive Committee, with, of course, the approval of the guarantors, shall be able to publish a completed list of subjects for competition by the 7th or the 14th of October next, as it now confidently contemplates, a feat will have been accomplished which shall deserve and receive the approbation of all lovers of the eisteddfod. That committee, we have been desired to mention, invite the co-operation of all patriotic Welshmen, and any suggestion for the more practical working, and the more useful results of the eisteddfod, will be gratefully received by the Secretary, and duly considered by the committee. Indeed, many literati and patriots, as was the case with that model eisteddfod held at Llangollen in 1858, have already responded promptly and generously to this invitation by offering sugges- tions and monetary help.—Carnarvon and Denbigh Herald.
THE LEPER OF AOSTE. (Translated from the French of Havier de Maistre by L. J. H., Cefn.) CHAPTER II. Soldier.—I have often felt something like it. When sorrow hang's heavily on me, and I cannot find in the. heart of man that which mine is longing for, the sight of nature and inanimate objects consoles me. I delight in rocks and trees, and it seems to me that all the objects of creation are friends that God has given me. Leper.—You encourage me to unfold to you in my turn the thoughts which are passing within me. I truly love the objects which are, so to speak, my life companions, and that I see every day so, each evening, before retiring to my tower, I salute the glaciers of Ruitorts, the sombre woods of mount St. Bernard, and the fantastical peaks which rise above the Rheme Valley. Although the power of God is as visible in the creation of an ant as in that of the entire universe, still the grand view of mountains makes a greater impression on my senses I cannot see these enormous masses, covered with eternal ice, without feeling a sacred awe. But, in this vast picture, which surrounds me, I have some favourite sights, and some which are peculiarly dear to me among this number is the hermitage, which you see yonder on the top of Charvensod Mountain. Isolated in the midst of the woods hard by a barren field, it receives the last raya of the setting sun. Although I have never been there, I feel a singular pleasure in looking at it. When the day is declining, seated in my garden, I fix my looks on that solitary hermitage, and my imagina- tion dwells there. It has become a kind of property to me it seems as though a confused reminiscence teaches me that I have lived there in happier times gone by, but of which the recollection has passed away from me. I love, above all, to contemplate the distant mountains, which are blended with the sky in the horizon. Even so is it with the future distance causes the feeling of hope to arise within me my oppressed heart fancies that there may exist some far distant land where, at a future epoch, I will be able to enjoy at last that happiness for which I sigh, and that a secret instinct inces- santly presents to me as possible. S,- With so ardent a mind as yours, you must, no doubt, have made many efforts in order to submit calmly to your destiny, and not indulge in despair. L.—I should deceive you in allowing you to imagine that I am always resigned to my lot; I have not reached that degree of self-abnegation to which some anchorets have attained. That com- plete sacrifice of all the human affectffons is not yet accomplished in me my life passes away in con- tinual combats; and even the powerful help of religion itself is not always able to restrain my fitful imagination, which draws me sometimes, in' spite of myself, into an ocean of fanciful longings, which all tend towards that world of which I have no real idea, but whose fantastical image is ever present to tantalize me. S.-If I were capable of letting you read within the depths of my soul, and thus giving to you the idea that I have of the world, all your desires and regrets would instantly vanish. L.Tis vain that certain books have taught me of the perversity of man, and the inseparable evils connected with humanity: my heart refuses to believe them. I always call to mind the groups of sincere and virtuous friends, of husbands and wives that health, youth and fortune re-united, crowned with happiness. I fancy them wandering together in groves greener and fresher than those which lend me their shade, lighted by a more brilliant sun than shines upon me, and their lot seems to me the more worthy of envy as mine is the more miserable. In the beginning of spring, when the wind from Piedmont blows in our valley, I feel moved by its vivifying heat, and instinctively start up. I feel an inexpressible desire, and a confused feeling of an immense felicity, which I could enjoy, but which is refused me. Then I flee from my cell and wander in the country, so as to breathe more freely. I avoid being seen by the same men that my heart is longing to meet; and from the height of the hill, hidden amongst the briars, like a wild deer, my looks are fixed on Aoste. I see from afar, with envious eyes, its happy inhabitants, who scarcely know me. I groaningly hold out my hands to them, and ask for my share of happiness. In my ecstacy ■—■shall T !1clz:nowlodgQ it to you. ? -I Imvo sometimes embraced the forest trees, beseeching God to give them life for me, 'and thus give me a friend But trees are dumb their cold bark repels me it has nothing in common with my heart, which palpitates and glows with life. Oppressed with fatigue, weary of life, I crawl once more to my retreat. I tell God my troubles, and prayer brings back once more a little calm to my soul. S.-Thus, poor man, you suffer at the same time both the pains of the spirit and those of the body. Z.—The latter are not the more poignant, S.-You have, then, sometimes, a little ease ? L.-Every month, my sufferings augment and diminish, according to the state of the moon. In its first quarter, I, generally, suffer most. The malady diminishes then, and seems to change its nature my skin dries up and is whiter; but the disease would always be supportable, were it not for the terrible wakefulness that it causes. A—What! even sleep leaves you L. Ah sir, want of sleep want of sleep You cannot imagine how long and sad a night is when a wretched man passes it without once closing his eyes, his mind being fixed upon his terrible position, and a future without hope. No no one can under- stand it. My uneasiness increases, as the night comes on; and, when it has nearly passed, my restlessness is such that I do not know what is becoming of me my thoughts get confused; I feel an extraordinary sensation that I never expe- rience but in these sad moments. Sometimes, it seems to me that an irresistible force is drawing me down into a bottomless abyss sometimes, I see black spots before my eyes, which, with lightning speed, seem to cross each other while I am examin- ing them; then they become larger, as they draw nearer to me, and soon become mountains, which crush me beneath their weight. At other times, too, I see clouds rising up from the ground round me, like billows that-swell and become lararer, and at last threatening to swallow me up and when I try to get up in order to chase away these strange feelings, it seems to me that I am held back by invisible cords, which prevent me from rising. You think, perhaps, that I am dreaming but, no, I am really awake. I incessantly see the same objects, and it is, indeed, a horrible sensation surpassing all my other ills. S,- V cry possibly, you have fever during these terrible, sleepless nights, and it is that which causes this kind of delirium. ■L' '^° y°u think that it comes from fever'! Oh should be so thankful if it is really the case. I was afraid until now that these visions were but a symptom of insanity, and I own that it has made me very anxious. Would to God that it were, indeed, fever. ^•~T^0U interest me deeply. I acknowledge that I could never have formed any idea of a situation similar to yours.

CORRESPONDENCE. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.—ED.) To the Editor of the" Llangollen Advertiser." THE REV. J. A. MORRIS, ABERYSTWYTH, AND RITUALISM. LETTER II. To the Editor of the" Llccngollen Advertiser." Dear sir,-Allow me at the outset to correct one word at the beginning of my last letter. The heading given to the paper referred to was not correct. I was told beforehand that it was to be a paper on ritualism, and though it puzzled me to account for it as a whole, yet, from the importance given to the subject in the latter end of the paper, I could see that he had collected his forces around that forte, and assailed it in a manner that seemed to satisfy himself and his friends. I have nothing to do with the other parts of his paper. I took two or three notes then and there, but I have unfortunately lost the paper. I may unwittingly misrepresent what my friend of Aberystwyth had said. I shall be corrected by the perusal of it in the Baner, and it will be a pleasure to confess my mistake, and make an apology. But let it be understood that, though I have an earnest desire to be at peace with all men, I have no leniency to offer to anybody that makes it a point to falsify our position with regard to christian truths, be it in private or public, and especially the latter. When the grand discovery came upon us that all our difficulties with ritualism is to be done away with by throwing infant baptism overboard, we ought to have gone home with an incontrollable exultation, shouting Eureka! Eureka!" But I confess that I am such a sceptic at heart that the discussion repelled me more than anything else, and I am afraid that the ritualism that Mr! Morris would give us would not be much better .than the one thrown away. I say it seriously it is the old fable of Scylla and Charybdis. More of that, perhaps, another time, and I will come to the objectionable points of the paper. We were accused of- 1.—"Making unconscious babes members of Ollr churches." I hope we shall have no quibble about the meaning of the word "members." There are but very few received as members into our churches before they are twelve or fourteen years old. Then they are received by a vote of the church and a large proportion of those that have been baptized never become members. I speak only of Nonconformists. Dr. Halley has defined the position of the baptized in a single line. "Baptism, the designation of persons under religious instruction." Knowledge of this might be had by consulting the officers, or any private member belonging to the different churches at Aberystwyth. Mr. Morris either knew all this when he wrote his paper, or knew it not. If he knew it not, why make assertions upon anything that he understood not ? If he knew, why should he wilfully state what is not true ? The cause of truth requires not the help of falsehood. Our inconsistency became next. 2.—" We are more inconsistent than even the ritualists Ucmseives. —I he inconsistency spoken of was not inconsistency with the truth, but inconsistency with itself. On that score the ritualists are safe. The baptism of ritualists is a gross inconsistency with the word of God, but it is consistent with itself. If any human being can persuade himself to believe that baptism regenerates, then his utmost zeal for it is as consistent as consistency can make-it. In that respect our inconsistency will have to stand by itself, and the ritualists will not come in for a share neither "for better or for worse;" the comparative degree is out of place when the primary is wanted. But correct- ness of logic and propriety of speech are matters of little importance in comparison to bringing together groups, however, incongruous, that will enable us to throw an odious light on people we wish to disgrace. To make our error appear in bold relief, we must be set side by side with acknowledged errorists of the deepest dye, and then tell us that we appear to disadvantage. 0 wad some power the giftie gie us To see oursel's as ithers see us." Will it be always our misfortune to look at things through different mediums? A jaundiced eye will see things yellow, and a straight stick when you put it into water will appear crooked. The water medium makes an astounding difference in our looking at and judging of things. How- ever, let us look at our inconsistency, which is more inconsistent" than our consistent neigh- bours. We are supposed to be shut in by a dilemma taken from the pages of "one of the greatest of Welsh theologians." This dilemma would settle our case once and for ever. Our baptism had the misfortune of either meaning too much or too little; either the incantation of ritualists, or to have no meaning at all. A great distance certainly; it had to mean either omnipo- tence or nothing. If it means omnipotence even a warrior from Aberystwyth will find it a little difficult to grapple with it: if it is a synonym with nothingness, it will take a keen eye to find it out, and will require a great expert to hit it. However, this piece of ingenuity, as it was considered, no doubt, had the misfortune of "meaning either too much or too little," which is equal to have no meaning at all in this case. It took for granted the thing to be proved. I—We neither think, nor profess to hold, that baptism as administered amongst us, is a medium of salvation. That we would consider to be magic or incantation. We are not so intense in our zeal for it as those who would make an aqueduct of it to carry human souls to glory; hence our moderation as regards it we hold to be consistent. 2.—We believe that every infant is in a state of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, and through him only. Baptism was given us an emblem of the "washing of regeneration," and we bestow upon an infant the symbol of that cleansing power Where is the inconsistency ?" If that is not self-evident I confess that I know not what self-evident means ? Next, and the last thing we mean to take notice of- 3—The reasons why we are barred from any possibility of joining the Baptists at the Lord's supper. The very instincts of humanity and our common Christianity is an inward a priori evidence that the Lord's table is the place of all others where every vestige of dividing and conflicting opinions should give place to a cordial unity in flomg all honour, and bowing with all reverence before our common head and common Saviour It is the only place where we all join and all meet and yet it is there that close-communionist Baptist will degrade the sanctum sanctorum of the church by telling us that we cannot join him in' commemorating the death in virtue of which we have been saved without defiling his conscience, without making him disregard sacred principles. To me it seems, as evident as the sunrise, that there must be something radically wrong in the system that teaches that doctrine. Anyone who will tell me that a Baptist will be made the worse for joining in the communion with a fellow- christian, I will say you deserve to be made worse, and to be satisfied with that type of holiness that said: "Hethat cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." If your conscience is defiled by the presence of your brother, whom you communicate freely with when he gives you his filthy lucre," and are made better by it. If it disturbs your conscience at all to come to the Lord's table with him, I will assure you that it is not the conscience which God gave y°u; then where d-id you get it? The argument to sustain this unchristian-like doctrine was that the Baptist denomination had as much right as any other to draw a limit as to who they would receive into their communion. Certainly. I only hope that the author of the paper read will always consider himself as coming under the same laws as other denominations. But I do not tUaftfe, him for an attempt to level himseU; with other denominations this time. It seems that he felt an undercurrent of disgrace drawing him into danger on this point, and to avoid the contempt of others tried to make them believe they were on a par. Other denominations do not shut out anybody unless their lives necessarily shut them out. They invite all to join, and try to make it clear unto all that it is their duty and their privilege. The outsiders are those that naturally cannot join or that spiritually will not. Neither have the Baptists nor the other denominations a right to set up arbitrary laws in the church of Christ which contradict the very spirit of Christianity. Before there is a jot of real argument to sustain the intolerant spirit of close-communionism, it must be proved- I.-That Christ makes baptism essential to a communionist—not any quibble about preceding it, but an essential to it. —That our baptism is not the baptism of the New Testament. Great effort has been made to prove both these, points, and so far, we hold that all efforts have failed to do either, and I am glad to add that there is no sign of its coming round in the future. We are brethren in Christ; are we to recognize it in words and deny it in deeds ? Let those that do, leave off the banner of consistency. Yours respectfully, J. MORRIS.
THE FATHER OF WILSON, THE PAINTER. To the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,—I had occasion some weeks since to visit Penegoes, in Montgomeryshire, for the purpose, in fact, of examining the parish register with a view to ascertaining whether the book contained a record of the birth of the famous artist. I could iind none. The register, I may add, is not com- plete, some of the loaves being missing. I may, however, possibly throw a particle of light on the question raised in the "local column" of your last issue. I cannot precisely answer the inquiry as to the christian name of the incumbent of Penegoes in 1713; but the writer of the paragraph may be interested in the following extract from the register, copied at the time of my visit John Wilson, rector of this church, died 31st day of August, and was buried at Trefeglwys, 1728.—Thomas Griffiths, rector." A doubt has been raised respecting the locality of the artist's birthplace, and Mold (of which parish the elder Wilson was also rector) has been, among others, assigned the honour. It would be worth while to examine the registers of Mold respecting the matter. Should the writer in the Llangollen Advertiser be able to glean further information on the subject, he would, I believe, interest a large section of the community bv I making it public. I enclose my card, and am, sir, Yours faithfully, A WALES-LOVING ENGLISHMAN. Aberystwyth, Sept. 16th. THE BRITISH MUSEUM.—This institution, which occupies the northern side of the eastern portion of Great Russell Street, is far removed from all the other departments under the control of the Government, and is by far the most interesting of all to the people at large, though it can boast of no very great antiquity. It owes its origin to I γ- t, Sir Hans Sloane, a man of high scientific attain- ments, who, during a long period of practice as a physician, had accumulated at his house at Chelsea, in addition to a considerable library of books and manuscripts, a vast collection of objects of natural history and. works of art. These treasures he directed to be offered to the nation at a certain price after his death, which took place in the year 1753. The offer was accepted, and an act was passed directing the purchase, not only of Hans Sloane's collection, but also of the Harleian Library of Manuscripts, which we have already mentioned in a previous chapter and at the same time enacting that the Cottonian Library, which had been presented to the nation by Sir John Cotton, during the reign of William III., and was deposited in Ashburn- ham House, Dean's Yard, Westminster, should, with those, form one general collection. To these George III. added a large library, collected by the preceding sovereigns since Henry VII. To accomodate the natural property thus ac- cumulated, the Government raised, by lottery, the sum of £100,000, of which £20,000 was devoted to the purchase of the above collections and in 1854 Montagu House, in Great Ilussell-f street, was bought from the two heiresses o the Montagu family, as a repository for the then infant establishment.—From Old and New London" for September.

NARROW ESCAPE OF THE QUEEN. On Monday forenoon, her Majesty left Balmoral on a drive to Tillypronie, by the way of Ballater, where horses were changed. On leaving Ballater an accident occurred which sent a thrill of horror through the spectators. In turning a sharp corner, one of the horses missed its footing and fell, the other horses were pulled up in an instant, and the fallen animal on recovering its feet showed an intention to bolt, but was firmly seized by a spectator. Her Majesty did not show the slightest perturbation, and the drive was resumed.
RELIGIOUS LESSONS FROM THE TURKISH ATROCITIES. On Sunday, according to previous announce- ment, the Dean of Chester preached sermons, morning and evening, concerning the sorrows and sufferings of our fellow Christians in European Turkey." That in the morning was from Lamentations, chapters first and second, a number of sentences which, read consooutivoly, without arrangement or adornment, truly described the condition and feeling of the Christians in Bulgaria, and made the old book and the recent events in European Turkey each a most serious commentary on the other. Of course, duties rested upon them as English citizens in that crisis, and those duties they must discharge to the best of their ability but that was rather a subject for their week day thought. There, in God's house and on God's holy day, they sought the religious meaning of that which had made them shudder and weep. What were the lessons God was teaching them in the midst of those dismal occurrences? He (the preacher) could suggest five. First, God would remind them by those events that they were living in a very sad and sorrowful world. Their time was appointed in a luxurious age, and their lot was to dwell in a prosperous country. Painful subjects were kept out of view, although suffering was around them. Such a delusive experience might go on for years, till sorrow and suffering came to themselves, and then the lesson was forced upon them that it would have been better to have known something of it sooner. Let them, there- fore,use those occurrences as a help for removing some delusions. Secondly, not only were the events a revelation of sorrow and suffering, but of wickedness and sin also. Their sympathy was deeply moved for those who suffered, and their indignation was deeply stirred up, but against whom ?—against men like themselves. It was often and truly said that the atrocious barbarities of the Turks were a disgrace to human nature; but at the same time they were not a libel against human nature. The conduct of the Turks had been that of human beings acting under certain circumstances and in the absence of certain restraints. The second lesson was, therefore, one on the depth of human depravity. Modern history had revealed something in regard to that subject.' He might refer not only to the French during the time of war in Spain and Germany, but also to the Anglo-Saxon race in India, Australia, and America. He was not attenuating, by means of an unfair comparison, what had horrified us lately, but was only saying that in a man, as man, there was the brute. One great purpose of Christianity was to cast the brute out of man. Thirdly, the lesson was surely one of thankful- ness to God for His undeserved and exceptional favour towards us—thankfulness for the harvest, for the store against the coming winter, for hopes extending to future years, for quiet in their homes and all other blessings. The fourth lesson related to the establishment of the great principle of sympathy in their hearts. Fifthly and lastly, there was the lesson of generosity. There was danger that, amid all the excitement, the emotion of generosity might be in process of evaporation. Feeling should lead to action. Let, then, their generosity in gifts for their fellow-Christians be real. In conclusion, the dean asked the congre- gation to place confidence in him for ascertaining the best mode of conveying their gifts to those they desired to help. At night the sermon was from Romans xv. 19, Round about unto Illyricum." The preacher described the position of ancient Illyricum, which comprised Bosnia, Montenegro, Servia and Bul- garia. The writings of St. Paul and St. Luke connected Paul with these countries, and it was upon the borders of Illyricum that Paul first made known the truths of Christianity. The speaker entered into the ecclesiastical and military history of these states, and sketched their geographical position in relation to Turkey proper. He remarked upon the fidelity of the inhabitants, especially those of Montenecrro to the Greek Church, and said he wished the con- gregation to feel that, whatever diplomatists might arrange, the true name they should give them was not European Turkey, but South- eastern Christendom. He urged upon his hearers the duties of practical sympathy by aiding the subscriptions then being made at each service. There was a crowded audience, and collections were made on behalf of the sufferers in the provinces referred to.
