13. At Handsworth, Staffordshire, in the 116th year of her age, Ann Smallwood, widow. She was born in 1702, the year Queen Anne came to the throne. She was the mother of 15 children, the eldest of whom now living is 80 years old. She had been nearly blind a few years, but all her other faculties she retained to the last. At Glasgow, the Rev. Dr Balfour, of the Outer High Church. He was suddenly taken ill while walking on the street, and, being carried into the house of a friend, he survived only a short time. Few have been so clear in their great office, or fulfilled more conscientiously the sacred duties of

their situation. During a ministry of forty years, he pursued, with undeviating rectitude, the sacred line of his duty. No extraneous object, no temptation of wealth or distinction could induce him to swerve from the path he had formed. His was no cold or languid system, but the warm effusions of a well regulated mind, deeply impressed with the truths of revelation, which he inculcated with the most sedulous diligence, and, in his own person, he was a bright example of every Christian virtue. In him the institutions for the dissemination of the scriptures, the propagation of the gospel, and the general advancement of religion, ever found a zealous patron, and to them his loss will be incalculable. Living, he was respected, honoured, and admired, and his death will occasion a chasm which it will be difficult to fill.

Death of Sir Samuel Romilly -This universally lamented gentleman died by his own hands on the evening of Monday the 2d current, at his house in London. Grief for the death of his lady, for whom, during her long illness. his mind had been distracted with alternate hopes and fears, drove him to despair; and in a fit of insanity, in the temporary absence of his daughter, whom he had sent out of the room to call his nephew Dr Roget, he sprung from his bed, and cut his throat in such a manner as to occasion death in a few minutes. Sir Samuel had six sons and one daughter, who, in the course of a few days, were thus left orphans, under circumstances the most afflicting. The intelligence of this catastrophe excited, throughout the country, one general feeling of the deepest sorrow; atribute which was, indeed, due to the memory of so excellent a person, who was truly a pattern of public as well as private worth. Every one who heard was struck dumb by the intelligence; or had only power, for the moment, to utter some ejaculation of astonishment; for it was naturally thought that Sir Samuel Romilly, from his character, his acquirements, and still more from the nature of his pursuits, calculated, of all others, to engross the mind, and secure it against the overwhelming influence of depressing thoughts, would have risen superior to this adverse stroke.

of love. When we think of all this, and at the same time of the lamented end of this great character, the mind is filled with amazement, mingled with a certain sort of dismay. Where, we naturally ask. are the boasted resources of science and philosophy? Is this the end of al that is great and glorious in the gifts of nature and fortune? Could they give no comfort to their unfortunate possessor, nor save him from the last extremity of a distracted intellect? These are no doubt gloom and uncomfortable reflections; but they are naturally suggested by the subject, of which, considered in all its tragical circumstances there is no alleviating view on which the mind can repose from feelings of unalloyed bitterness and regret.

In the successful practice of an honourable profession, and in the higher pursuits of a legislator and a statesman, he had gained all in which comfort and happiness are thought to consist. His circumstances were of course flourishing; he was respect. ed and beloved by all classes; such was the universal impression of his worth, that even calumny was disarmed, and shrunk abashed from the elevation of his virtuehe was reckoned an example for all others -a standard of public purity-and with all those advantages he was of the most amiable disposition-endowed with all those mild and endearing qualities which give so fine a finish to public characters, and render them at once objects of reverence and

In the House of Commons, Sir Samuel Romilly experienced all the respect which was due to his talents, and the universal impression which prevailed of his unblemished integrity added weight to his arguments. His style of speaking was, we are informed, simple and unornamented→ his object appeared rather to convince than to dazzle his hearers-with this view, reason was the only weapon he employed-it was the basis of his eloquence, which was calm, but not cold, and naturally rose when it was called forth by a suitable cause inte energy and passion. His views, on all questions of general policy, were uniformly liberal, humane, and enlightened; he appeared to have thoroughly emancipated his mind from the trammels of his profession, which, as is truly remarked by a great man, is not calculated, unless in persons very happily born, to open and liberalise the mind in the same proportion that it quickens and invigorates it. Sir S. Romil ly, however, was one of those persons destined by nature to rise above the prejudices of his order his reasonings were those, not of a lawyer, but of a legislator and a statesman, philosophical and comprehensive. Every one must recollect his humane and temperate efforts for the amendment of our criminal code-the calmness and moderation with which he combated ob jections--and the just and enlightened maxims of policy which he laid down as the basis of his proposed improvement. In this respect also, the moderation of his views was remarkably exemplified, as he laboured with such perseverance to succeed in those questions which had nothing in view but the good of the community at large, and which had no reference whatever to party interests. He was, indeed, in all respects, a finished character, and the universal esteem in which he appears to have been held by men of all parties, is the most satisfactory testimony that can be given to the eminent qualities, both moral and intellectual, with which he was endowed.
