18. At London, Mr Lyon Levi, a diamond merchant, about 50 years of he age; precipitated himself from the top of the Monument, and was literally dashed to pieces. Mr Levi attended to several appointments in the city about eleven o'clock, and transacted his usual business; and at twelve obtained admission to view the Monument. He walked several times round the outside of the iron-railing before he sprung off, and in falling, the body turned over and over before it reached the ground. When near the bottom, it came in contact with one of the griffins which urnament the lower part of the building. A porter, with a load on his back, narrowly escaped the body of the deceased, which fell a few paces from him in Monument yard It is said that, two days before, Mr Levi visited the Monument, and continued at the top for some time. Nothing has transpired from which the friends of the deceased can judge of the cause which led to the fatal catastrophe. Mr Levi has left a wife and eight grown up children.

He struck out a new species of humour, which was known by the name of Cross Readings, and when he first communicated it to the Public, he added the apt signature of Pupyrius Cursor. Upon the whole, he was a man of distinguished talents, a zealous friend to his country, a loyal subject, and a very respectable member of society. His friend Goldsmith winds up his character in Retaliation, with the following appropriate

lines :

Merry Whiteford, farewell! for thy sake 1 admit,
