THOMAS ROBERSON, ESQ. Sept. 4. At Oxford, in the 70th year of his age, Thomas Roberson Esq. Town Clerk and Clerk of the Peace of that City, and Clerk to the Commissioners of Taxes.
He was a native of Oxford, and began to practise as an attorney, in partnership with the late Mr. John Meysey, upwards of forty years since, which partnership continued a few years only. He was elected Common Councilman in 1800; Chamberlain in 1803; and senior Bailiff in 1807. On the death of Sir William Elias Taunton, in 1825, Mr. Roberson became a candidate for the vacant office of Town Clerk, and was opposed by Mr. Henry Taunton, the son of Sir William. A very severe contest ensued, which excited much interest. Indeed it was quite equal to any one for the representation of the City, for the London and other distant voters were brought to the poll at a very great expense. Mr. Roberson gained the election by a considerable majority.
He was of a most urbane and benevolent disposition, and ever shewed the greatest kindness to the poor and the unprotected. He possessed considerable literary as well as professional talents. In 1795 he com'menced the publication of a periodical work, of which only a few numbers appeared. It was well written, and much talked of at the time; and a gentleman of high rank in the University, and of considerable literary fame, was supposed to have been its author. Mr. Roberson was one of the proprietors of a weekly newspaper, called the "Oxford Mercury,' which finished its career at the commencement of the present century, and he often aided it by literary contributions. In performing the official duties of Town Clerk, his talents were occasionally displayed in addresses of gratulation and condolence, petitions, memorials, &c. proceeding from the City; which were all much admired for their terse, concise, and expressive language.
In 1799 he married the sister of the late Mr. Alderman Cox, who, with six sons and five daughters, deeply lament the irreparable loss they have sustained.
MRS. STAFFORD SMITH. Sept. 23. At her house in Queen'ssquare, Bath, aged 81, Mary Elizabeth, relict of the late Rev. Martin Stafford Smith, Rector of Fladbury, Worcestershire.
She was the daughter of Thomas Plaisted, esq. of Ticehurst, in Sussex, and Joyce, daughter of Stanford Wolferstan, esq. of Statford Hall, in the county of Stafford; and was married to Mr. Staf.
ford Smith in 1797 after the decease of her friend, his first wife, the niece of Ralph Allen, esq. of Prior Park, and relict of Bishop Warburton. This venerable and amiable person was one of the last connecting links between the present age and the classic days of Prior Park: and her graphic recollections of scenes and persons connected with that centre of taste and literature were full of interest. Her chief personal characteristics were a placid benignity of disposition, and a graceful simplicity of manners. Her declining years had long been solaced and supported by the exercise of an enlightened devotion, and of an extensive but discriminating charity both public and private ; and her habitual piety, her cheerful resignation, and the pleasure she took in doing good, made her to the last an edifying example to her numerous friends. She has bequeathed handsome legacies to several public charities.

The family of Wilks had thence very powerful support from the Dissenters in St. Luke's parish, and Mr. John Wilks, the Member for Boston, was for many years the vestry clerk and chief manager of the parochial affairs, until the disappearance of one of his clerks caused a violent ferment and much litigation between him and the other authorities, who
sought to make him responsible for the defalcation of his clerk.
