At her house at Jacob's Well, Bristol, Mrs. Jane Green, the celebrated actress, who for many years diftinguished herfelf by the powerful exertions of her comic talents on the ftages of Drury-lane and Covent-garden the atres. Mrs. G. was the daughter of that eminent comedian Mr. Hippelley, the predeceffor of Yates and Shuter. She began her career on the ftage of Goodman's-fields playhoufe, about the time that Mr. Garrick commenced the profeition of an actor. She was married to Henry Green, efq. who died fome few years fince, purfer of the Namur, a 90gun fhip. After a painfu! @ruggle with Nature for eight weeks, Mrs. G. (having completed her 72d year) was carried off by a mortification in her limbs, which age and imbecillity, occafioned by illness, and a long courfe of medicine, rendered it out of the power of Art to stop. In private life, Mrs. G. was an affectionate wife, a tender parent, and a steady friend. She has left be ind her two fons, the elder a captain of marine, the younger at prefent unprovided for. As an a Arefs, we have no one performer, on either of our stages, equal to Mrs. Green in the termagants, and few in the pert chambermaids, and various other comic and farcical characters.

She quitted Covent garden theatre a few years fince, on a pique, occafioned by fome difference with the manager; and has ever fince refiled in a fmall house of her own near Jacob's Well, Briftol, which her father built when proprietor of the adjoining THEATRICAL
