He obtained this rectory, and afterwards added to it the vicarage of Horley, in Surrey (in which he is fucceeded by the Rev. Mr. Sparrow, vicar of Difeworth, co. Leicefter, and curate of Walthamstow, co. Effex). He took the degree of B.C. L.

The work, which remained dormant for feveral years, occafioned at first by "the laborious employment of fuperintending a large public grammar- (chool,” and afterwards by an unfortunate turn in Mr. W's affairs, originating in a very imprudent matrimonial connexion, which involved this learned man and respectable magiftrate in the greatest distress, was once more refumed, when the committee for conducting it were reduced to Sir Wm.

DEATHS.

GED 55, after a long refidence on the Continent, particularly at Rome and Naples, where his love of architecture, mufick, painting, and antiquities found ample gratification, Charles Morris, efq. He was an excellent fcholar, poffefling an imagination lively and vigourous, and exercifing unwearied application in the purfait of general literature, and of the fine arts.→→→ From his accurate knowledge of antient Rome, of Italy, and Sicily, he perufed, with a peculiar pleasure, the claffical writers, many of whofe local descriptions he had examined upon the fpot. His frequent and apt citations of them difplayed a memory uncommonly tenacious; and he was ever ready to communicate the refult of his obfervations and inquiries. To his proficiency in languages he had joined the study of the theory of mufick, and was an exquifite performer on the harpsichord. The various attainments of his cultivated understanding received additional lustre from his virtue, probity, and honour. His fenfibility was extreme, and often led him to commiferate, too feelingly for his own repofe, the ills infeparable from human life. Some plates, exhibiting antient Candelabra extant at Rome, are do hired to him by the celebrated Piraneft; and he is mentioned by Sur Wm. Iamilton as hava; i formed um that he was able to road by the belt of the immenfe colucon of fire thrown ap by Vefuvins, in the great erup ion which happened in the night of th th of annul, 1979; of which tune de was at Sorento, on the way ut N.pl s.-

M:.

Mr. M. was born in the parish of St. George Hanover-fquare, on the 8th of January, 1736; was educated at Eton, and entered at St. John's College, Cambridge, being intended for the Church. He died at Rome, after a lingering illness, early in the morning of the 15th of March, and was buried in the evening of the 16th, in the ground adjacent to the pyramidal fepulchre of Caius Ceftius, within the city-wall, the place affigned for the interment of Proteftants; twenty-four English gentlemen accompanying the body, inclofed in a coffin covered with black cloth, and holding lighted torches, while the funeral ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Wade, an English clergyman, then at Rome. He has left a confiderable legacy to Signor Antonio Cortefe, fecretary to the Neapolitan embaffy at Rome, with whom he had lived in continual friendship for more than 15 years.

June... Mr. Thomas Feild, horfe-dealer, and mafter of the White Horfe livery-ftables in Gray's-inn-lane.

10. At the free-fchool in Primrose ftreet, Bishopfgate-ftreet, after a painful illness, Mrs. Sarah Ellis, wife of Mr. John E. in her 47th year, having been married near 28 years. To her nearest relations, her natural chearfulness and easy mind, her great fidelity and tender affection, endeared her. She was an affectionate parent, and a difcreet inftructor to young and tender minds. Her converfation gave a sweetness to the pleafures of life. Strictly honeft and fincere, the was courteous and civil to all, and took pleasure in ferving every one to the best of her ability. 13. At South Carolina, Mr. Wm. Saunders, merchant, of Bristol.

July 1. At his feat at Balenegare, co. Rofcommon, Ireland, in his 82d year, Charles O'Connor, efq. He was a member of the Royal Irish Academy, a respected antiquary, and author of many different works. Lineally defcended from the last unfortunate native prince who ruled that island; poffeffed of all thofe amiable and engaging qualities which could fecure friends, and of abilities which must command pre-eminence, he was debarred of every benefit which fuch qualities and circumstances could procure, by being a Roman Catholick. His heart was ftill better than his head. His integrity, through the courfe of a long life, was unimpeached; and his charities equalled his income. He poffeffed but a small eftate, the vast possesfions of his family being loft by fucceffive forfeitures to the Crown, in the two laft centuries, in confequence of what was then called Rebellion, but which, in the prefent age, would be deemed by all, Refift.nce to Op. preflion. A thort time before his death, it is faid he engaged many of his relations and friends to emigrate to the United States of North America, to feek for freedom and independence in the forests of that continent, rather than obtain either in their native country by means d.fhonourable, or by a de

fertion of their religious principles. He looked on Religion, let the mode be what it might, as the only means which could fecure the human heart from corruption; and that the worst poffible svftem of Legislation was that which could inflict penalties on the retention, or annex rewards to the desertion, of this principle. If he had a weakness, it was a fingularity of opinion, that the English nation do not poffefs the virtues generally attributed to them as peculiarly characteristic, viz. geretous courage, and love of universal liberty. He denied them the former, for they were cruel after conqueft; and the latter, for he afferted they would enflave where they could command To many individuals, however, of this nation he was as partial as he was the contrary to the aggregate (but, alas! what nation can, in the aggregate, equal its individuals?)-with many he cultivated a very warm friendship; and the testimonies Lord Lyttelton and others bore to his merits and his value must be highly flattering to his pofterity, in whatever climate or country they may fix their abode; and fhould they endeavour to imitate them, they will be highly useful. He published "An Account of the Nature and Conditions of a Charter to be granted for the working and manufactur ing Mines and Minerals in ireland; together with fome general Heads relating to the Advantages that must neceffarily refult from that laudable Establishment. In a Letter to the Right Hon. Thomas Lord Southwell. London, 1754." "Differtations on the Hiftory of Ireland, Dublin, 1766," 8vo. In the "Cullectanea Hibernica," vol.
