Essex. Mr. Joseph Greenwood, one of the Society of Quakers, who lately died at Coggeshall. He bequeathed five pounds to each of the Friendly Societies in that place, of which there are seven in number. This is certainly an act of great liberality, and, we have no doubt, will be productive of much benefit to the individuals by whom it is to be shared; but there is still another trait in the character of Mr. Greenwood, for which he was so justly respected while living, and which so well deserves to be recorded after his death. At a certain part of Mr. Greenwood's life, he met with difficulties, and had occasion to rely upon the liberality of his creditors, who accepted a composition in discharge of their several demands. Some years afterwards, when, by industry, Mr. Greenwood had recovered from his state of adversity, and the sunshine of prosperity beamed down upon his humble endeavours, actuated by that principle which the honest man will ever promote, he called his creditors again together, and paid them not only the deficiency of the first sum, but also the interest upon the
Hants. Major T. J. Harrison, of the Royal Artillery. He was interred in Portsmouth Garrison Chapel with the military honours due to his rank.
Lincolnshire. At a very advanced age, Mr. Lewis Grummitt, formerly an eminent grazier. It was from au hospitable joke of this worthy man's, that Dr. Goldsmith took the hint of Marlow mistaking the house of Mr. Hardcastle for an inn, in the comedy of She Stoops to Conquer. The
circumstance was as follows:-Mr. Grum
mitt, late one night, met a commercial traveller, who had mistaken his road, and enquired the way to the nearest inn or public-house. Mr. G. replied, that, as he was a stranger, he would shew him the way to a quiet respectable house of public entertainment for man and horse, and took him to his own residence. The traveller, by the perfect ease and confidence of his manner, showed the success of his host's stratagem; and every thing that he called for was instantly provided for himself and his horse. In the morning he called, in an authoritative tone, for his bill; and the hospitable landlord had all the recompence he desired in the surprise and altered manners of his guest. Many other whimsical acts of kindness are related of him. Shropshire.
At Shrewsbury, Mr. J. Chambers, said to be the oldest provincial Comedian in the kingdom. He had appeared on the Shrewsbury Stage during the last 30 years. His merits as an actor were inconsiderable; but in private life he was much respected.

June 25. At Braybrooke, Northamptonshire, near Market Harborough, aged 65, Mr. John Norman, clerk of that parish. He was a man of strong natural abilities, which had he also possessed prudence, would, doubtless, have advanced him to a much superior station in life, He chiefly followed the occupation of a land-surveyor; but was also an able astronomer and mathematician; and last year published an Almanack, in imitation of the celebrated Francis Moore. In a communication to the Northampton Mercury, in Aug. 1806, he predicted that "the Summer of 1821 would be a very dry one, from the planets Saturn and Jupiter meeting in conjunction in June next in the fiery sign Aries, being the same sign they were in, in the year 1762, which was a remarkably dry summer, such a one as has not happened in England since. The next time of their meeting was in 1782, in the sign Sagittarius, and that was a very wet season. The last time of their meeting was in July 1802, in the sign Virgo, and the latter end of that year was so very dry, that there was a great scarcity of water until the snow fell in winter. Thus it appears how different the seasons are when these two planets meet in different parts of the heavens."
