The Unitarian pulpit in Concord, N.H., was closed against the minister of the Society, Rev. J. L. Hatch, yesterday, June 11, on account of his having, against warning, advocated the right of the freedmen to the elective franchise on the previous Sunday.
The friends of human rights and free speech secured Eagle Hall , – the largest in the city, – and there the Rev. gentleman repeated the objectionable discourse last evening to a large and approving audience.
The closing of the church has caused considerable excitement at Concord, and the end is not yet. – Traveller.
