Jenny Jennings.-65, Mrs. S. Miumford.-Miss Pelham, daughter of the Hon. Charles A. J’. She died at St. Lawrence Cottage, in the Isle of Wight. At Portsmouth, Lady Carter, the respected widow and the amiable counterpart of Sir John Carter, an account of whom was given at page 566, of our 25.1 voiume. The sweetness of her temper, the chcet fulmess of her disposition, and the urbanity of her deportment, rendered her the object of regard and esteem to those who enjoyed
opportunities of associating with her. She was ever alive to the .entine feelings of
frie:dship; hence, her friends uniforn:ly received from her the most assiduous and delicate attentions: aid, by anticipating the wisiics of those around her, she could not fail to please and delight, and to endear herself to theia. She studied more the comforts of ot!.ers than iner own: self was with her, on aii occasions, a secondary consideration. Perfectly guileless in her own Imind, she maturally received aii who approached her with affability, frankness, and benevoicnce.— “So pure, so good, she scarce could goess - at sin, “But thought the world without like that withim.”
Calumny and slander were utter strongers to her breast; and scandal situmiued her society: for she was constantly ready to defend the absent; and to offer every possible
excuse in extenuation of the conduct of
others, when brought untier the lash of cellsure, even though they were not her in:n:cdiate friel:ds. If censure ever escaped her lips, it must have been most deservedly due indeed. To iter donestics, she was kind and humane ; and when necessary their friend. In the varied character of daughter, sister, wife, and mother, she was a pattern of excellence. A constant and zealous friend of the poor and necessitous. Her acts of kindness and charity were known but to few, except those who were the fiequent objects of them. A case of real distress would instinctively direct her hand to her purse. Her virtues were all of the true Christian statup; mild and unassuming,
candid and friendly, benevolcnt and attractive: for her reision was that of Christ; the religion of the heart; pure and simple, unfeigned and unostentatious. She was the partisan of no sect, established or tolerated; but the friend of the virtuous and the good, of every persuasion: she looked more to the character, than to the religious opinions of her friends. She died, as she lived, in peace with God and man. Wi LtSiii to E. Married.] At Westbury, the Rev. D. G., Wait, to Miss Priscilla Miorgan, of Bristol.

At Terrangotie, 110, James Bluck, reiaining his distinct hearing to the last, and within a few weeks of his deuth, with his spectacles, reading his small print Bibie.

He was the son of Dauie, Rio Farlane, distilier, of Paisley, and was born 14th February, 1791. After two years' attendance on at English teacher, he entered the grammar school of Paisley, and under the able instructions of that emiment teacher Mir. John Peddie, made great anti rapid classical acquirements; for he was pronounced othy qualified to be sent to the university a year sooner than usual. Even at ti is e: iod he discovered a maturity of judgment beyond his years. The approbation restowed by the various professors, and the uniform eminence which he attained, in the studies to wiłic!; his attention was directed, prove a that he was not prematurely hurricq to that seminary. He continued to prosecute his studies in Giasgow, for six sessions, devoting that period to the classics, polite literature, mathematics, and astronomy. His driigctice was unremitting, having 1.cver been a day absent, from the time of his elitering the grammar school; and he engaged in no study without acquiring a competent knowledge of it before he desisted from the pursuit. The usual amusements of youth did not attract his notice, or employ his time, for he would be seen walking thoughtfully along, while those of his years were busily engaged in piay; and, as he celtivated the intimacy of hist few, his time was not spent, or lost, by the interruption of the fivolous or the vain. 'I he practice of calling forth exertion, and rewarding merit by an annual exhibition of prizes, laudably obtains in the University of Glasgow; and to him who considers the necessity of stimulating the human mind by hopes, and bearing it forward to honourable distinction, this regulation of that learned body will appear peculiarly salutary. 'File love of praise, or desire of superiority, excited the subject of this memoir to put forth his energy. He obtained in each class, the first prize given for gemeral me; it, and of such prizes as were allotted for the best essays: he gained one or two yearly, so that he regularly carried home, at the end of the session, two or more of these pledges of success. Themerits of souie of his performances procured the
warmest commendation; and, on some occasions, he was solicited to make copies, to be deposited in the class libraries. This mark of respect was considered by him as more honourable than the more showy distinction conferred at the annual exhibition. W!:en he had finished this long and successful course of preparatory study, he went in November 1812, to the University of Edinburgh, and commenced the various branches commected with the study of divinity. From his earliest years, he fixed his views on the clerical profession, and even before reason was supposed to dawn, he was proud of the idea of being, at some future period, a preacher. The early bent of his mind was rather encouraged, not opposed ; and he continued steady at all periods to the impressions at first received, never having been known to express a
wish for any other profession. He was re-.
served and retired in his habits, but his varied literature, and acute obscrvation, while in company, gave him great readiness
in discovering characters, and advantages
in argument. It was not easy to evade the force or ingenuity of his remarks; and his sententious mode of speaking, with a full distinct enunciation, rendered his conversation peculiarly agreeable. He thus gained upon the regard of those to whom he was known; the impression he made was favourable and lasting. His aim was utility and ornament, and he secured the esteem and friendship of all to whom he was introduced. The valuable circle of acquaintance which he formed in Edinburgh, will long esteem his worth, and regret his loss. Many to whom he was personally unknown, but to whom an homest famie had carried a favourable report, have sympathised in his fate; and, to use the language of one, who had for him nearly a paterual regard, he has been far heard of, for his period of life; and wherever his name was mentioned, it was spoken of with respect. But this promising prospect of respectability and usefulness, was to be overcast, for in the spring of 1813, he was severely attacked with cough, and stricture in the chest. He had been for nearly twelve years, less or more, subject to cough and mucous discharge from the bronchia, with occasional spitting of blood. The pulse had been quicker than usual for many years, and he felt a considerable degree of breathlessness for some months. The seeds of phthisis were in the habit, the banefiti fruit might have been prognosticated by a skilful observer, and it required ônly time and cold exposure, to bring the complaint to maturity. He was accus. tomed to dress too thin, and the chilly state of body, that is intended to give us warning of approaching or commenced danger, was suffered to proceed. This insuf. ficient protection from clothing, has cost multitudes their health and lives; and it is unfortunate, that when we are put in the
way of making attainments in the most elegant parsuits, so little regard is paid to the preservation of health, without which no pleasure can be relished, and all accomplishments are vain. (Yur feelings inculcate the necessity of attending to comfort. able clothing, but these feelings are unheeded, or if they excite a momentary notice, obtain not due attention. It is tirought cffeminate to have recourse to a greater load of dress, to ward off the evil. The incouveniency is therefore submitted to, and hence the calamity from consumptive complaints, which spread so extensively in this island, strip so many families of their fairest hopes, their promised supports, envolving them—in tears and vain regrets.

At Paris, 94, the celebrated Fernardin St. Pierre, keeper of the botanic garden, author of the Studies of Nature, and other works.
In the West Indies, on board the Ram, one of Admiral Sir Francis Laforey's dispatch schooners, Mr. Edward Kennedy, *: 24, youngest son of the late Mr. John
• formerly of Highbury-place, latterly of Bunhill row. He had passed for lieutenant, and was on the eve of promotion, when, having volunteered to serve on board the above vessel, he perished with her in the dreadful hurricane of the 23d of August last. Excellence in exalted rank is seldom suffered to depart without some public testimony of regret, some tribute of admiration and respect, nor should merit, established and acknowledged in any station, pass unnoticed, because untimely ehecked in its career, and fatally arrested in its progress to that fame which seemed insured to its continuance. The subject of this memoir entered at an early age into the service of his country, and up to the time of his loss was constantly and actively engaged in it; an enterprising spirit and a heedless intrepidity frequently subjected him to dangers, from some of which he but miraculously escaped: he was, on one occasion, so fortunately and directly indebted to the humane attention and indefatigable perseverance of strangers, that mention of it cannot be omitted. In 1807, while on board the Bellette sloop, a Prussian messenger was proceeding in her to this country with dispatches of importance;
approaching the Suffolk coast, the weather, which had for some time been tempestuous, become so much more so, that it was not thought prudent to attenipt lan:iing; the Elessenger, however, appeared so anxious to be put on shore, also gy earcsented the consequerees (+ de! * #3 o'.

No hope Was even then given, and it imust have been something little short of an almost inspired perstasioin of success that under such discouragement prompted them to increased efforts; they were continued, and at length symptoms of returning life were show” ; with transport they were witnessed and encouraged till perfect restoration was cofected. The satisfaction of that moment, and the sensations of the breast that had thus accomplished the object of its Christian-like solicitude, may, or rather ca, not be imagined. Mr. Kclinedy and one sailor were all that were saved. He soon afterwards left the Bellette and in the very uext cruize she foundered in the North Seas, and all were lost. Preserved in one instance from a premature fate, and avoiding it in another, it still, alas, too certainly awaited him, and that, where the firm mind and friendly hand could nothing have availed, contending with the overwhelming horiors of the hurricane. His excellence as a sailor is attested by his admiral in the account he transmitted to his family of his unfortumate and distressing end. His endeaving qualities as a brother, and his intrinsic virtues as a son, are impressed on the ecolleetion of those towards whese hoppiness they were unremittingly excrued. While is surviving relatives are yet fondly and frequently reverting to past events, and in the active exercise of their memories are i etracing occurrences that almost recall him to their circle, they will, in all of those comnected with his professional life, meet some consoling record of his merit.
