May 16. In Berkeley-square, aged 85, the Right Hon. Edward Clive, Earl of Powis, Viscount Clive of Ludlow, Baron Herbert of Chirbury, and Baron Powis of Powis Castle (1804), Baron Clive of Walcot (1794), and Baron Clive of Plassey, co. Clare (1761), a Privy Councillor, Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of Shropshire, D. C. L. &c. &c.

The Earl of Powis was born March 7, 1754, the eldest son of Robert first Lord Clive, the renowned founder of our Indian empire, by Margaret, daughter of Edmund Maskelyne, of Purton in Wiltshire, esq. and sister to the Rev. Dr. Nevile Maskelyne, Astronomer Royal. He succeeded to the Irish peerage on the death of his father, Nov. 22, 1774; and about the same time (though then under age) he was returned to Parliament for the borough of Ludlow, which he continued to represent until his elevation to an English peerage in 1794. In 1783 his Lordship supported Mr. Fox's India Bill, and in 1788 he divided in favour of the Prince of Wales's claims.

In 179.. he was appointed Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of the county of Salop and at the same period he was Colonel of the Militia of that county.

[ocr errors]

On the 14th Aug. 1794, he was created Baron Clive of Walcot, co. Salop.

In 1802 he was appointed Governor of Madras, whither be repaired, but resigned the command in the following year. On the 3rd May, 1804, the thanks of both Houses of Parliament were voted to him for his services during the Mahratta war; and on the 12th of the same month he was advanced to the titles of Earl of Powis, Viscount Clive, of Ludlow, Baron Herbert of Chirbury, co. Salop, and Baron Powis, of Powis Castle, co. Montgomery. He had married in 1784 the sister and heiress of the last Earl of Powis of the family of Herbert, with whom that title had expired in 1801.

In 1805 the Earl of Powis was nominated Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and sworn a Privy Councillor on the 21st of November; but the death of Mr. Pitt, before his departure, was the cause of that appointment not taking place.

His Lordship was formerly Recorder both of Shrewsbury and Ludlow.

The Earl was remarkable for physical vigour; and though he spent some

years of his life in India, and lived freely, he might be seen, when almost 80, digging in his garden, at six o'clock in the morning, in his shirt sleeves. He was apparently well the day before his death.

He married, May 7, 1784, Lady Hen.. rietta Antonia Herbert, dau. of HenryArthur Earl of Powis (so created in 1747), the male representative of the Herberts of Dolgeiog, a collateral branch of those of Chirbury, by Barbara, sole daughter and heiress of Lord Edward Herbert, only brother of William third and last Marquess of Powis. By this lady, who, on the death of her brother in 1801, succeeded to the whole of the Powis estates, and who died on the 3d June, 1830, his Lordship had issue two sons and two daughters: 1. The Right Hon. Edward Herbert, now Earl of Powis, Lord Lieutenant of Montgomeryshire, and President of the Roxburghe Club, and late Member for Ludlow in the present Parliament; he was born in 1785, and married in 1818 Lady Lucy Graham, sister to the present Duke of Montrose and the Countess of Winchilsea, and has issue Edward-James Lord Clive, born in 1818, and many other children; 2. Lady Henrietta Antonia, married in 1817 to Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart. M.P. Lord Lieutenant of Denbighshire and Merionethshire, and died in 1835 leaving issue; 3. the Most Noble Charlotte-Florentia Duchess of Northumberland, late Governess to her present Majesty; she was married in 1817 to his Grace Hugh present Duke of Northumberland, K.G. but has no issue; 4. the Hon. Robert Henry Clive, M.P. for the Southern Division of Shropshire, who married in 1819 Lady Harriet Windsor, daughter of the late Earl of Plymouth, and a co-heir with her sister the Marchioness of Downshire, of the barony of Windsor; they have several children.

The funeral of the late Earl left his residence, in Berkeley-square, on the morning of the 20th May, attended by his two sons, the family solicitor, house steward, &c.; the private carriages of the Duchess of Northumberland, Duke of Montrose, Marquis and Marchioness of Downshire, Major Smith, Sir Watkin W. Wynn, Miss Walpole, Mr. Henry Clive, Mrs. Wilson, &c. &c. The interment took place in the family vault, in Broomfield Church, on Saturday May 25. By his marriage settlement, a large por

Bishop Marsh was a native of London. In what school he received his early education we are not informed; but in 1776 he became a sizar of St. John's College, Cambridge, where he greatly distinguished himself as a classical and mathematical student. He took his bachelor's degree in 1779, as second Wrangler and second Smith's Prize-man; he was elected to a Fellowship in his college, and proceeded M.A. in 1782. In the following year he went to Germany for improvement in modern languages, and he resided for several years at Gottingen, and thus qualified himself for the translation of one of the profoundest works in German divinity, Michaelis on the New Testament.

But theological studies did not wholly engross his thoughts and time, for he is said to have obtained some important information on public affairs, the communication of which to the Government at home was considered so conducive to the public service as to deserve the grant of a pension, which he received from Mr. Pitt.

On the French armies invading Germany, Mr. Marsh returned home, and resumed his academical pursuits at Cambridge. He took the degree of B.D. in 1792, and commenced a career of extensive authorship, the particulars of which will be found in the list of his works hereafter given. It was his fortune to be embroiled in various controversies, greater perhaps in number and importance than any other author of his time.

In 1807, on the death of the Rev. John Mainwaring, B.D. he was elected Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity, and he immediately engaged in a course of English lectures on theology, instead of the Latin lectures formerly given, according to ancient usage. By this change he was enabled to increase materially the benefit of his instructions, as persons of all orders and descriptions had the power of hearing his lectures, which were delivered from the University pulpit. He was created D.D. in pursuance of royal mandate, in 1808.

In 1816 Dr. Marsh was advanced to the

Bishopric of Llandaff, and in 1819 he was translated to Peterborough. His attempts to repress Calvanism in his new diocese soon rendered him obnoxious to the evangelical portion of the clergy, and several publications appeared on the subject, which was ultimately brought before the House of Lords, but without any material result. The following is a list of Dr. Marsh's publications :

Whatever came from Bishop Marsh's pen evinced unwearied assiduity in research, extreme acuteness in discovering circumstances that could elucidate the subject of his investigation, and the utmost clearness in stating the result of his labours. His translation of Michaelis's Introduction to the New Testament is accompanied by many learned disquisitions on points of great moment. Letter to Mr. Archdeacon Travis contains information of indisputable value to those who are engaged in the study of the Greek Manuscripts of the New Testament. His Comparative View of the Churches of England and Rome-a volume of much importance at the timeis rendered still more important by subsequent events. His Lectures in Divinity contain a more systematic arrangement of the several branches of Theology than had previously appeared, and abound in matter most useful to theological students. As a Bishop he ever showed the greatest attention to the clergy over whom he was placed, and was most prompt and exact in the dispatch of business. As a man, he was liberal in all his views, of great benevolence, and remarkable for his friendliness of disposition.

By the death of the late Bishop of Peterborough, an alteration has taken place in the Ecclesiastical position of the county of Nottingham, which is no longer under the episcopal view of the Archbishop of York, but under that of the Bishop of Lincoln. The counties of Nottingham and Lincoln now form one diocese, and are in the province of Canterbury.

The Bishop's funeral took place on the 8th May at Peterborough cathedral. The pall was borne by the Ven. Archdeacon Strong, the Rev. H. J. Smythies, the Rev. John Hopkinson, the Rev. A. S. Lendon, the Rev. J. H. Stone, and the Rev. J. W. Norman. The chief mourners were the Bishop's two sons, the Rev. Herbert Charles Marsh, and George Henry Marsh, esq. The Rev. E. Mortlock, and Captain Dunn, who married a niece of the Bishop, also attended. The procession was met at the palace gateway by the clergy of the cathedral, where the service was performed by the Rev. Dr. James, Sub-Dean (the
