A POPULAR PASTOR.
AUCKLAND, Mat ?8.
The Rev. Thomas Spurgeon resigned his pastorate of the Baptist Tabernacle at a meeting last night. The reason given was that his health had broken down under the strain, and that he would have to go. away and retire into private life. His wife's health had also given way. The resignation created a very painful impression amongst the congregation, who were wholly unprepared for the announcement. The resignation bad no connection with the cablegram published las 6 evening, of whioh Mr Spurgeon was not aware till after the meeting. He then broke down completely.
