in her manners, polite in her accomplishments, and calculated, as he believed, and as experience afterwards proved, to render his life as happy as its viciffitudes allow any reaonable person to expect to he. Every day of her life juftified the opinion which his Lordship had formed of her: as a wife, the was most dutiful and affectionate; as a mother, most unwearied in her attention to her lovely and numerous offspring; the was indefatigable in her endeavours to inculca e principles of religion and virtue in their tender minds, and perfonally attentive even to the minuice of their foo', their dref, and all thofe necellary circumstantials, which fervants, left to themfelves, would too frequently difregard. In the courfe of a tedious and painful fickness under which her muchloved and refpected lord languifhed and died, her toilfome days and Deepless nights did honour to her feelings, but proved deftructive to herself, and, no doubt, fo fatally impaired her conftitution as to render her an early facrifice to the calls of duty and affection. Amidft thefe cares and forrows the found amufement in fome of the most curious arts, by which the diftinguished herself among her female acquaintance; and specimens of her kill will attract the admiration of the curious, whenever they are infpected: yet note of thete ornamental employments were fuffered to interfere with her fiel duties; in thefe fhe confcientiously perfired to the lift day of her ability to attend to them. The Sunday which preceded her diffolution was devoted to her children's improvement in the principles of religion; the bleilings of which the is now receiving, and is, happily, far beyond the reach of that malevolence which dictated an article in the news-paper, calculated only to milead and mifinform, and in which there is freely a fingle particle of truth, from the place of her death at Wanftead in Sux, to the duration of her zine hours' illness, and the fwelling under her breaft, which no one, except this well-informed writer, ever knew was the caufe of her death; the immediate caufe of which was an inflammation in her bowels, fucceeded by a rapid mortification.

He was afterwards appointed to the office of "Landvogt" at Oldenburgh, which he retained till his death. March....

19. At his chambers in the college, the Rev. Digby Marth, D. D. fenior fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, profeflor of modern history, register of the Univerfity, and member of the Royal Irish Academy.-Whether we confider the greatnefs of his mind, the ftrength of his talents, or the number of his virtues, we cannot hesitate to pronounce him amongst the first characters of which the univerfity, or perhaps the nation, can boast. Calm, deliberate, and referved; his calmness was fortitude; his deliberation wifdom; his referve modesty. That magnanimity which raifed him above the reach of pation gave to every action of his life decifion and intrepidity;

dity; and whilft he feemed flow in deciding, he was retarded not by dulnefs of conception, but by the range of his fagacity, and the comprehenfion of his views. The aufterity of his deportment, the effect not of pride but of conftitution, was foftened into affability by a native gentleness and benevolence, which could not be difguifed; and through a feverity of manner, perhaps not ill fuited to the ferious dignity of his mind, beamed the mildest effufions of a generous and feeling heart. His affections were not eafily excited; but they were ftrong, fteady, and permanent; and, whilft he fcorned to make professions of regard, his actions proved him a fincere and difinterested friend. Noble and elevated in his fentiments, he has left behind him a character unfullied by a fingle mean or difhonourable act: nor, indeed, was it poffible that a man, the independence of whofe virtue refted upon himfelf, and, far from courting, rather thunned applaufe, could have deviated from the ftrict path which honour and confcience prefcribe. Endowed with fingular powers of understanding, he fought not their difplay. His genius was too proud to stoop to fame, too modeft to hope for it; but the gratitude of that place which has been enriched by his talents, and adored by his virtues, will pay to his memory that tribute of admiration and praife which the difiidence that ever attends real abilities would have prevented him from accepting in his life.
