Conyers, wife of Sir Archibald Campbell, and dan. of the late Sir Nich Conyers, bart. Drowned, about 7 o'clock this morning, in the Grafid Canal, near his own house, where he went to bathe, as ufual, Richard Smith, efq. of Profpect, co. Kridare, in Ireland. He was the fon of a very refpectable farmer in Leicestershire; and, a few years age, took the tract of land and concern of Profpect, beforementioned, and others, upon which he pursued the bufiuefs of farming in a moft judicious manner, and was a member of the Farming Society.
9. Ia bis 56th year, the Rev. John Towers, 34 years paftor of the Independent Meeting in Barbican. He was, in the early part of his life, in the fea-fervice; but, at the folicitation of his parents, he left it, after making two or three voyages, one tu Greenland, the others to the Weft Indies; and was apprenticed to a packer in Turnwheel-lane, Cannon-ftreet. Here it was that his extraordinary abilities began to fhew themselves; for, long before the expiration of this indenture, he discovered a ferious regard for religion; and, at his vacant hours, employed himself moft indefatigably in the ftudy of the Holy Scriptures, both in the original and vulgar tongues; and, in a fhort time, became acquainted with the various readings, both Jewish and Chriftian, and was efteemed à judicious critick of the Hebrew Bible. His piety, zeal, and acquirement, called the attention of certain perfons who were deprived of a minifter by the fucceffion, of a worthy Baptift to the paftorfhip of their congregation, which before adhered to the practice of Infant Baptifm. They requested their young friend to preach to them for a few Sundays; and, after due confideration, folicited him to accept the office of pattor, for which he was ordined at the meeting in Bartholomew Clofe. His youth, eloqnence, eritreifin, added to the folemnity of his addreffes, drew vaft numbers to his difcourfes. Soon after he married his first. wife (a worthy and amiable woman), that We might not be burthenfome to his friends, he opened a day-fchool in the vestry-room of his meeting. Here, likewife, his diligence and attention to his dury were highly honourable to him; many of his pupils, now refpectable tradefmen, are living, to bear teftimony of his regard to their religion and morals, as well as to fit them for the middle clafs of fociety. This noble employ of a Chriftian fchoolmafter foon after his fecond marriage, his health preventing him from attending to as he could have wifhed, upon medical advice he gove up. Truly devoted to the feared function of a Minifter of the Gofpel, he must be Fanked with Calvinifts; but he was no fcholar to Calvin, nor any other mhafter in Ifrael; the Scriptures only, as contained in the Old and New Testament, were his fand.
ard; all his doctrines, all his exhortations to a holy life, were drawn from thence. Hence his judicious reafonings in cafuistical divinity. There was no act of kindness which this worthy man did not embrace, by his attention to the diftreff and poor, for miles in and round this metropolis; to feveral hofpitals, prifons, work-houses, &c. in which he admonished, comforted, and inftructed in the great truths of the Scriptures; and to the poor children who attended his catechizing. He was a steady advocate for our civil and religious liberties, as fettled at the glorious Revolution. The prerogative of the Crown, and the liberty of the People, were always connected; his love for the Proteftant fucceffion in the illuftrious Houfe of Bruufwick, and as centêring in our beloved Monarch, was manifefted upon all ocoafions. He was of great fervice to the Government when the wild, confufed publications of Paine were diftributed, in fmall tracts, among the lower claffes. He attacked them with great fuccefs; and was the happy inftrument of convincing many of the fcepticism of thofe fchemes, both as they related to the Chriftian Church and the British Government. His corpfe was conveyed from his meeting-boute in Barbican, attended by a long train of friends, and the carriage of Sir William Staines, late Lord Mayor of London, and decently interred, on the 7th, 10 Bunhill-fields burial-gronnd.
