HALL, Newman, English clergyman, born in Maidstone, Kent, 22 May, 1816. He was graduated at the University of London in 1841, and received the degree of LL. B. there in 1855. He had charge of the Albion Congregational church in Hull from 1842 till 1854, when he removed to London to become pastor of Surrey chapel, Black-friar's road, known as Rowland Hill's chapel. In 1850 he opposed the general cry against papal aggression. During the civil war he was a firm friend of the United States government, and at its close visited the United States in the interest of international good-will. He opened congress with prayer, and delivered an oration on "International Relations" in the house of representatives in November, 1867. As a memorial of this visit, Lincoln Tower, part of his new church-building on Westminster road, was built by the joint subscriptions of Americans and Englishmen. In 1873 he again visited the United States, lecturing in the principal cities. His publications have been widely circulated and reprinted in the United States. Among these are "The Christian Philosopher" (London, 1849); "Italy, the Land of the Forum and the Vatican" (1853); "Lectures in America" (New York, 1868); "Sermons and History of Surrey Chapel" (1868); "From Liverpool to St. Louis" (London, 1869); "Pilgrim's Songs." a volume of devotional poetry (1871); "Prayer; its Reasonableness and Efficacy" (1875); "The Lord's Prayer" (1883); and "Songs of Earth and Heaven" (1885). He delivered a lecture on the assassination of President Lincoln, in London, in 1865.
