P. 189, a. The late Francis Gosling, Esq. was a character whose definition is comprehended iu "Humani Generis I)ecus." The Gentleman and the Scholar, of refined, elegant, suavity of manners; of liberality of heart and hand, of iliffusive charity to an extent proverbial. Thus shone his character expanded to the world. Iu his domestic scene, the sacred depdt of tender and endearing sensibilities, he was the perfection oftxample, conjugal and paternal. The lenient hand of Time can aloue be looked to to sooih the affliction of that suffering circle. They have, however, to enjoy in alleviation the Epicurism in reflection, that his memory and meritorious deeds will be perennially vital.—When such a man is called to Heaven by the fiat of his Maker, he leaves a void on earth rarely ever filled by commensurate aggregate of moral virtues.
