the very margin of that “ awful bourne from whence no traveller returns."
The occafion of Sir William's retiring from the service of the King, or rather the Court, it is faid was a misunderstanding between him and the Lord Chamberlain. He began his fervices at St. James's as a gentleman usher to his Majefty; in which fituation he continued, enjoying the peculiar favour and good opinion of his Royal Master till he had attained the feniority to which it has been the cuftom to annex the ignity of a baronet. The King conferred this honour on him; and he retired to his patrimonial estate in Derbyshire, coming to town only thofe months he was in waiting by the orderly courfe of duty. Upon a particular occasion of some ceremonial at St. James's, it was necessary for a gentleman usher extraordinary to attend at Court; and the Marquis of Salibury, in quality and right of his office, ordered the Baronet to town, who pleaded in vain the distance he was from London, indifpofition, inconvenience, and the expence of the journey for one day's attendance. At the fame time, he said, that another gentleman usher, at the Chamberlain's order, could not fail to do the duty in his room. The Marquis directed a fecond order to be sent to Sir William, commanding his attendance or his refignation. The Baronet immediately took a poft chaife, reached the palace in time to perform his duty, and immediately gave-in his refignation.
of fuch as are bad, and below mediocrity, that walk about therein; nothing but our forrow for what we lofe could equal the admiration we pay to the deceafed Baronet. With what increase of affection, with what inettable transport, we prefs to our bufoms that character whose privation we can never fufficiently lament' And as we defcry how little actuates the prefent generation, fave ambition and nonfenfe, and that all human purfuits feck nothing but for felf-intereft, fraud, peculation, and prostitution; what a bright, charming gleam of fuperiority gently and nobly spreads itfelf over the dear me mory of this matchless man! Peace to his fhade Of his talents, or the acumen of his wit, it is quite unnecessary to declaim. They stand not in need of the blazonry of any biographer; and as to his literary merit, his "book of Maxims," which bears record of his knowledge of the homan mind, and his other writings, bear fufficient teftimony. Such were his honour and integrity, that it would be difficult for the moralift to prove whether they were innate or adfcititious. If a steady and watchful attention to the wants and interefts of his fellow-creatures in general, or of his countrymen in particular; if his loyalty to the King, his attachment to the Engfish Conftitution, and the laws by which it has been fo long and fo happily fupported; if these be valuable qualities in an honeft citizen, then Society has to regret the irreparable lofs of fuch a friend. Like the immortal Howard, and the philanthropic Day, he, instead of purfuing the paths of pleasure, and those that lead to wealth, and the fruition of this world, purfued, from the most beneficent motives, thofe that lead to the grave. He was a niggard of that exercife that might have fecured his life. His views were folely directed for the benefit of others; he forgot his own. To find out objects for the exercife of his benevolent heart was his fole delight. His love of mankind, and his charity, were unbounded. Whilft his mind was intent upon the police of his country, and his country's reformation, he died most fincerely lamented; and he may be said to have died for the fake of others, as he destroyed his health by forming plans for the fupport and happinefs of those who wanted both. A foe to the faftidiousness of modern life, he retired from the great theatre of fashionable vices, though formed, by a refined education, and peculiar natural abilities, to adorn the most brilliant circles, in which he had always been brought up, and exchanged the coil and idleness of the great world for the privacy and tranquility of a rural life; where, for elegance, purity, and fuavity of manners, he lived and died admired, and for true affability and dignity of life and character revered, as well as a bright exemplar of all the milder and more focial virtues. Equanimity, ferenity, and a refignation to the Divine Will, appeared in his features, and pervaded his whole demeanor, to

Dropped down dead as he was coming from Highgate to Kentish-town, Mr. John Seymour; a perfon well known to the prin cipal bookfellers and literary characters in this metropolis. By uncommon affiduity he had acquired a knowledge of various languages, and might have been highly ufeful had he been properly patronized; but, whether through the eccentricity of his character, increated by the failure of the chief plans on which he founded his hopes (after having been Literary Companion to an Honourable Senator), he was unfuccefsful in moft of his purfuits; with a hauteur of difpofition, arifing from the confcioufnefs of his fuperiority in knowledge, he existed amid fuch depreffions as would have overwhelmed most minds; and perhaps he often experienced as great hardships as Otway, Savage, Chatter ton, &c. He was the author of a collection of poems, confifting of Spring, &c. published about two years fince, and dedicated, by per-, mithion, to her Grace the Duchefs of Devonfhire. He likewife tranflated "The Correfpondence of Two Lovers, Inhabitants of Lyons," published about, the fame time: and lately has been engaged in procuring materials for a general hiftory of the polite artists in this country, which bade fair to meet with general acceptance. He had likewife juft completed the printing of a volume from the French, intituled "Pfycology;" which would prove exceedingly ufeful for fchools.-The writer of this article cannot conclude without wishing that those characters who have often experienced the value of his labours had exerted their influence in affitting him who so often affifted them.

He added confiderably to the value of it, by purchafing the tithes, and by draining one of the largest pieces of water in the county. He is fucceeded in his eftate by his eldest furviving fon, Mr. Folleot Sandford. He has left five daughters, and a fecond fon, Capt.

eminent ftationer in Leadenhall-ftreet.- Mr. V. had imprudently, at the preceding stage, given a glass of wine to the coachman, in order to induce him to use dispatch. It is remarkable that this driver was at the time under profecution for affaulting one of his paffengers, and that the perfon who drove for him fince the accident had his thigh broken by driving against a waggon at the Crown inn at Royfton, which pulled the fore-wheels and carriage from the perch, and entangled him among the traces. Mr.V was brought home on the 5th. His only fon died Dec. 24, 1790, and his daughter the 7th of the fame month, both in the prime of life. See p. 657, and vol.

At Milton, near Shipton, co. Oxford, in his 75th year, Mr. John Matthews, one of the people called Quakers, a man who, though he did not enjoy the advantages of a liberal education, poffeffed a liberal mind, and held the dictates of confcience, and the approbation of his Maker, fuperior to every other confideration. Impreffed with the excellence and benefits of Chriftianity, the neceffity of holmefs, and the infufficiency of faith, his affectionate and ardent folicitude for extending its genuine influence, and promoting the best interests of his fellow-creatures, will long be remembered with honour to himself, and advantage to others. He enjoyed life's peaceful evening with a smile, and met the hour of his departure with that itedfast hope and placid refignation which fo eminently diftinguithes a true Chriftian. He has left behind him a numerous offspring; among whom the ingenious and refpectable Secretary of the Bath Agricultural Society ranks as eldeft.

8. Aged 77, Mr. Rob. Brown, many years clerk of the Tylers and Bricklayers Company. Mr. B. was of the clafs of men called oddities. His dress was fingular-rusty black, with a hat in the old clerical Ayle, and a black wig. Some fuppofed he was a coal-merchant; and a late Bishop of London, feeing him on the fteps of St. Paul's church, imagined he was a diftreffed clergyman, and humanely defred one of the vergers to make enquiry into his fituation. Mr. B. had been a fcholar in his youth; and, about thirty years ago, wrote fome periodical papers in affociation with Kelly. He prided himfelf moft in his latter days on his knowledge of heraldry, and the connexions and dependencies of all noble families. A very fine mezzotinto print of him was done many years ago, which, from the fingularity of the drapery, might pals for the portrait of an antient German Reformer. How he came by the name of Toby (except it arofe from the fignature he used to his papers) is not known, but he lived and died with it.

D. many years prefident of the Baptist Academy, and paftor of the congregation of Protenant Diffenters in Broad-mead, in that city. Though he languished under a very fevere indifpofition for upwards of two months, his death may be pronounced fudden and unexpected. His friends began to flatter themfelves with the hopes of his recovery, when, on the 7th inftant, in the afternoon, a second paralytic feizure fuddenly rendered him fpeechless and infenfible; in which state he continued till he expired.-How pleasingly thofe qualities which recommend and endear the hutband, the parent, the Chriftian, the tutor, and the minifter, were combined in him, thofe alone can tell who had the happinefs of being connected with him in thofe capacities. He poffeffed an enlarged and liberal, a benevolent and pious mind: and while thofe individuals and communities with whom he was more particularly connected venerate his memory, and mourn for his death, the fympathy of fociety, wherever he was known, will be excited, and his remove will be confidered as a public lofs. His publications were principally occafional fermons, which are enumerated, from 1771 to 1780, in Cooke's "Hiftorical Register."

Mr. Lane, grocer, in Ball-street, Birmingham. He fell a facrifice to the exceflive fatigue he underwent during the late riots in that town.
12. Much lamented, Mr. Tho. Afhwin, japanner, of Paradife-row, Birmingham.

His 1emains were depofited with thofe of his relatives abovementioned in the family vault in Enfield church on the 24th. His extenfive fortune was not more difplayed in the fplendour of his hofpitality than in the largeness of his beneficence. Diftrefs found no occation to repeat, a fecond time, its fad tale at his door; and scarcely any of our numerous inftitutions for the relief of human affliction prefented their claims to fociety, but they found in him a liberal fupport. His manners were untainted by pride, and his temper unruffled by afperity. He bore, for many years, a series of illhealth without repining. He felt his gradual decline without a murmur; and though he fuffered extreme agony before his diffolution, yet it was the agony of the body at its separation from a foul like his. Words will not exprefs his merit; it ftill lives in the remembrance

He lived upon his eftate at Willefley, the whole lordship of which he owned; was a good hufband, a good father, a good master, and a good landlord: fincere and warm in his attachment to his friends, liberal in his benefactions to the poor, and strictly juft in his dealings with all men. It was of this gentleman Mr. Thicknesse speaks, when he fays, "The comfortable feat of Mr. Abney should be particularly noticed, not only for the house, but the good old man, his fon, and the wife. It is a maifon carrée, has extenfive views each way, but the poffeffor fees no man's land but his own; and all his farm-houíes too are as well formed as his own.

A green filk purfe, containing two pence in halfpence and a fixpence, a inuff-box, and a white pocket-handkerchief, were all that were found in his pockets. The body was conveyed to St. Martin's workhoufe; and the coroner's inqueft was taken at the BarnMenfe, a public house in St. Martin's-lane, where, after a fitting of four hours, the jury humanely brought in a verdict of Lunacy. His remains were privately and decently interred in the church-yard of St. Martin in the Fields, about feven o'clock in the evening of the 19th, followed to the grave by his nephews, Meifrs.
