The Great City Meeting at Guildhall, [in London], 1850. 'Mr. Wire, denouncing the enemies both without and within the Church, supported the resolution and the addition. We quote one passage of his speech: "I trust that you will not only pass the resolution unanimously, but wherever there is a Puseyite priest, or a person to be found - no matter whether he is covered by the shadow of St Paul's (cheers), or ministers in a humble building - that the people of England will remember the words which the Dean of Bristol used - that the Church is not the Bishop, not the clergy, but the body of the people of England. (Loud cheers.) When you see Romanist practices in the Church, or when you hear Romanist doctrines, become again protesters; walk out; leave the men to preach to empty benches; don't stay to witness their ' histrionics (Loud cheers, and cries of 'Turn them out.')'
