manstone, he was not absent from his parochial duties three months; in consequence of which conduct (well worthy of imitation) there was not, at the time of his death, a dissenter in his parish, and scarcely an absenter from the service of the church. He was interred in the family vault at Sydling, on the 24th, the anniversary (seven years since) of the funeral of his late brother Sir John Smith, bart.
Nov. 21. At Primrose-hill, Salisburysquare, in his 75th year, Mr. William Wright, who for 36 years was one of the Common Council of the Ward of Farringdon Without. He had for some time been the Father of St. Bride's parish; and had uniformly been the diligent and active promoter of whatever was beneficial to the trae interests of his fellow parishioners.

His hours of retirement furnished many elegant and useful literary productions, which graced the pages of several periodical works. He brought up a family of nineteen children, twelve of whom are now living to attest and profit by his virtues. His benevolence was not confined to his immediate family; but his bounty to the poor kept an equal pace with his laudable promotion of almost every public charity, in which he generally took a distinguished lead.

P. 296. b. The late Countess of Glandore was not mother, but sister, of Mrs. Herbert, of Muckross. The same error has crept into all the public prints. These ladies were both daughters of the late Lord G.Germaine, 1st Visc. Sackville. Her Ladyship died issueless; and the heir presumptive to the barony only, is the Rev. William Crosbie, son of the late Hon. and Rev. Maurice C. dean of Limerick.
