ASSRYlANS' WAR SUFFERINGS.

The ARCHBISHOP of CANTERBURY, presiding at a meeting at the Church House, Westminster, yesterday, in support of. the Archbishop's Mission to the Assyrian Christians, said that probably one-half of the Assyrian nation had been put to death or had died from sickness and exposure during the war. The murder of the Patriarch was one of many horrors that occurred. The survivors where placed in a great camp near Baghdad, but this was now being broken up, and 30,000 Assyrians were on their way to the plain of Mosul, where they would be established under British protection, pending repatriation.
