He was created a Baronet in 1806. At the age of 56 he married Elizabeth, daughter of James Farquharson, esq. merchaut, of London, by whom he had twenty-eight children.

March 30. In George-street, Blackfriars-road, in his 73d year, Mr. Thomas Bennett, printer. His vital powers were nearly exhausted by an asthma, under which he had laboured for many years; but his death was hastened by the fracture of a thigh, under which he sunk, after lingering a fortnight.-He was born Feb. 12, 1745-6, at Chichester, in Sussex. In 1760 he was apprenticed to Mrs. Lewis, printer, in Paternoster-row. At the expiration of his apprenticeship (after working a short time with Mr. Richardson, the celebrated author of "Clarissa," &c.); he entered into the employment of Messrs. Bowyer and Nichols, with whom he continued 47 years; and was so fortunate as to enjoy two pensions which those benevolent gentlemen had severally allotted for indigent aged printers." The Union Society" (now held at the Rev. Rowland Hill's, or Surrey Chapel), which he had joined, was on the brink of ruin, from the inability of its members to support its expences; but, by adopting the measures Mr. Bennett proposed, it was so thoroughly renovated, as to allow pensions to several of its old membersto be a secure provision in case of sickness-to afford money for a wife's funeral-and to supply a handsome sum to the widow at the death of a member. The Stock has progressively in

creased to nearly 3000l.; and the names of some highly respectable Citizens have been added to the List of its Members. To this Society Mr. Bennett continued as Secretary till his death.-In 1785, he joined with some religious friends in forming an institution called the "Union Society," I established at Tottenham-street, Tottenham Court-road, "for Clothing and Edu. cating 100 Poor Children in the Protest, ant Religion," in order to check the encroachments of Roman Catholics; and which still continues to receive the most satisfactory support.-Though anxious to be generally useful, his family was the first object of his attention; and his industry supplied them with the comforts of life, and a liberal education. The tender regard which was felt for him by his wife and children prove him to have been a kind husband and affectionate father.His last trial he bore with the resignation that became a Christian; and his intellects remained unclouded to the last:-at five o'clock, on the morning of his dissolution, he wished the window-shutters to be opened he thanked God for preserving him through the night, and for the light of a new day-implored a blessing on his family and friends drew a few short breaths, and died without a struggle or a groan. J. B. Lately. At the Hot-wells, Bristol, the Hon, Margaret Hely Hutchinson, fourth and youngest daughter of the late Right Hon. Christian, in her own right Baroness Donoughmore, by the Right Hon. John Heley Hutchinson, formerly Secretary of State in Ireland, and sister of the present Earl of Donoughmore, and of the gallant John, Lord Hutchinson, Baron of Alex andria.

April 3. At East Smithfield, on board an Aberdeen packet, Walter Blackett Trevelyan, Esq. of Nether Witton in Northumberland, formerly of St. John's College, Cambridge. He possessed those humble unobtrusive virtues which the world passes by without notice, or perhaps marks with scorn, but which, we are taught, have their reward in another place. He was truly a disciple of Jesus. With limited powers, perhaps, and narrow views, he was sincere, ardent, and indefatigable in the service of his divine master, His heart was warm, good, gentle, and generous. He never gave offence, he seldom or never took it: he was truly amiable, independent, and friendly. He had a great turn for, and considerable knowledge in, several branches of natural philosophy. Pride was a quality (except the generous pride of independence) to which his heart seemed a total stranger. Sincerity and uprightness were constituent parts of his nature. Eccentric in his pursuits and habits, all his errors, if errors they could be called, were on the side of good


ness, religion, and virtue. His end was sudden and singular; but no person at Call acquainted with his character and. babits could in the least call in question that it was natural, and might long have been expected; and the scene of it was perfectly characteristic of his pursuits and nautical inclinations. The writer of this article sincerely honoured and loved him, and wishes his pen could do more justice to the subject. But this slight and hasty memorial is due to his many silent unobtrusive virtues, long kindness, and an acquaintance more or less intimate of above thirty years. The deceased was of a very ancient Cornish family; the branch he belonged to being seated in Northumberland. He inherited from his mother a very considerable landed estate, the income of which he spent liberally, in charities and other godly works, but not ostentatiously. He was a good son and kind brother; and to his friends the most unassuming, unpretending, inoffensive, useful and obliging creature that could be conceived.

April 6 In Holles-street, Dublin, Sir Richard Musgrave, bart. of Turin, co. Waterford. He was formerly a member of the Irish Parliament, was appointed to the valuable office of Collector of the DubJin City Excise, and created a Baronet, Dec. 2, 1782. Sir Richard married Dec. 20, 1780, the Hon. Deborah Cavendish, second daughter of Sarah, Baroness Waterpark in her own right, by the Rt. Hon. Sir Henry Cavendish, bart. of Doveridge Hall, Derbyshire; by whom he had no issue, and the title consequently (agreeable to the remainder in the patent) descended to his brother, now Sir Christopher Musgrave, bart, who is married and has issue. Sir Richard Musgrave distinguished himself by several important publications on the history and state of Ireland; but the terms of severity in which he thought himself warranted to speak of the Catholic priesthood in that country, brought upon him a shower of abuse, and even the censure of Government, as tending, it was supposed, to keep alive that heat which ought to be allayed by moderation. In private life, Sir Richard was universally esteemed and respected. The following is a list of his publications, viz. Letter on the present situation of Public Affairs, 1794, 8vo. Considerations on the present state of England and France, 8vo. 1796. Short view of the political situation of the Northern Powers, 1801, 8vo. Memoirs of the different Rebellions in Ireland, from the Arrival of the English; with a particular detail of that which broke out in 1798, 1801, 4to.; 2d edition, with an Appendix, 1801. 3d edition, 1802, 2 vols. 8vo. Observations on the Reply of Dr. Caulfield, 8vo. 1802. Observations on Dr. Drumgoole's Speech at the Catholic board, Dec. 8, 1813, 1814, 8vo.

April 8. At Penzance, Cornwall, in her 66th year, the Right hon. Emily, Countess of Bellamont, widow of Charles Coote, Earl of Bellamont, K, B, whose title became extinct in 1800. Her Ladyship was the eldest daughter of James Duke of Leinster, and married Aug 20, 1774, Charles Earl of Bellamont, by whom she had one son, Charles, Lord Colouny, died young, and four daughters.

April 15. At Walworth, of a rapid decline, aged 7 years, John, eldest son of Mr. John Smith, and grandson of the late Mr. John Browne, Senior Associate Engraver of the Royal Academy.

April 17. At the advanced age of 84, Mrs. Carlyon, widow of the late Rev. John Carlyon, of Truro, and daughter of the late James Winstanley, esq. of Braunston Hall, Leicestershire. Unfeigned piety, charity, and humility, and the most affectionate tenderness with which she discharged the duties of a wife, a mother, and a friend, were the distinguishing virtues of this most exemplary woman. She was beloved and respected by all who knew her; and her loss will be long and deeply regretted, not only by her family and friends, but by the numerous poor, to whom she was ever a most kind and li-' beral benefactress.


Vol. LXXXVIII. ii. p. 632. Dr. Jenkin was of St. John's College, Cambridge; and had the College living of Ufford, with the Chapel of Bainton, in the County of Northampton. He married Augusta,


youngest sister of Sir Frederick Evelyn, of Wotton, in Surrey, bart.; (she had been maid of honour to the Princess Dowager of Wales, the King's mother); and on the death of the Rev. Dr. Thomas Taylor, was presented by Sir Frederick to the livings of Wotton and Abinger, in Surrey, in 1808, on which occasion he resigned UfHe was Chaplain to the Prince Regent, and in 17 .... was presented by him to the Deanery of St. Burian, in Cornwall, which he held till his death. A few years ago the present Bishop of Winchester gave him a stall at Winchesterso that his Church preferment was not less than 20007, a year. Mrs. Jenkin survived her brother but one day. She and the Dean are both buried in the family vault in Wotton Church. He had no child.

*The Dean has an independent jurisdiction in all ecclesiastical matters within the parish of St. Burian and its dependent parishes of St. Levan and Sennen. There were three Prebends belonging to the original foundation, one of which is now in the gift of the Bishop, the other two are annexed to the Deanry, Lysous's Cornwall, p. 49.

Mr. Carter's Collection of Drawings, Antiquities, &c. were sold by Auction by Mr.Sotheby, Feb. 23-25, and produced the sum of £1695, 38.

Among the most remarkable were,

White Rose, a Dramatic Romance, founded on Historic Facts of the Fifteenth Century, written and set to Music for the Harpsichord, with an Accompaniment for the Violin, by John Carter.

To this Dramatic Romance Mr. Carter had with very great labour and expence constructed a Stage, with Proscenium and eleven highly finished Drawings, representing the various Scenes. 161. 16s.

Saint Oswald's Cell, or The Magic Sword, a Dramatic Romance, founded on Historic Facts, of the Fourteenth Century, written and set to Music by John Carter, 1796. This Dramatic Romance Mr. Carter, also with very great labour, had elucidated with 15 highly finished Drawings, which represent the various Scenes. 71. 7s.

Besides these, were several other attempts at Dramatic Writings, by Mr. Carter; and a great many by a maternal relation, Mr. J. Jameson; with MS political tracts by Mr. Jameson, written in Queen Anne's reign.
