THE REV. NEWMAN HALL ON THE TURKISH ATROCITIES. At Christ Church, on Sunday evening, the Rev. Newman Hall addressed a large congregation for about twenty minutes in reference to the present war in Europe. He said it had of late been urged that the pulpit had lost its influence, and the Press was the great engine of power in directing the minds of the people. Then it was alleged that ministers should not take part in influencing the minds of the people. But he maintained it was the clergyman's duty to denounce wrong-doing, no matter from what quarter it proceeded. Directing these argu- ments to the present state of affairs, he rapidly traced the events which led to the Russo-Turkish war — the massacre of the Christians in Bulgaria, and the frightful outrages committed, even in churches, on the poor people there. He spoke of the interference In,the cause of humanity of the English, French, and Russian nations, who met in conference at Con- stantinople to demand redress and a guarantee of protection for the future. Russia, lie said, had the courage to insist on the demands of the Conference, and the present war was the result. They now read in the papers accounts of most frightful atrocities, and it would be a subject for inquiry whether or not the respective Governments had sanctioned these atro- cities. But they should remember that many of these alleged atrocities were founded on Turkish reports—in fact, from reports from the people who themselves were guilty or responsible for the massacre of the Christians in Bulgaria. He next dwelt on the horrors of war, and denounced a section of writers in our English Press fomenting war, and hoped these men would be compelled to go to the front in any battle that England .might be engaged in through their counsels. At the invitation of the rev. gentleman the con- gregation engaged in a prayer to avert war from England.
