Icty. o, * This lady wrote two papers in The Rambler, one on “Religion and Superstition,” and the other, entituled “ The Voyage of Life,” which appear so uniform with the style and sentiment of the work in general, that they might be taken 'for the productious of the revered othor of that admirable work.

‘reflection, congenial with that of the original author, whom she has so advantageously introduced into British literature. 'But Mrs. Carter possessed all the softer virtues, as well as the talents and attainments that adorn the human character; she was as ardent to promote the interests of humanity, as to cultivate those of learning, and a desire to spread the influence of a philosophy, which, in addition to the dictates of religion, might tend to reconcile man to the evils inseparable from his condition, was her principal inducement for giving a translation of Epicfetas. Mrs. Carter was esteemed by a very large circle of friends, and those friends were of the most amiable and valuable description, among the chief of whom was the venerable Bishop of London, at whose house she was always one of the most honoured guests, and whose virtues she held in the highest respect. We cannot conclude this well merited tribute to a most amiable and enlightened character better than by a citation from a little poem of her own, which we have no doubt is exactly expressive of her feelings, when she bade farewell to this transitory scene: * When through creation's vast expanse , “ The last dread thunders roll:

“ Untune the concord of the spheres, “Jand shake the rising Soul:

“ Unmov’d may'st thou the final storm “Of jarring worlds survey, * That ushers in the glad serene “Of everlasting day !” At Wallingford, in Berkshire, the Itev. Richard Bethel, Rector of St. Peter's. He was found dead in his bed. It may with truth be said, that he not only practised the most exalted piety himself, but was anxious to inculcate it in others; and by his public preaching, exhortation, and example, he conveyed the most sublime ideas of religion. He was always ready to relieve the wants of others, and was a conput on a sledge it was with difficulty he could draw it there. The amount in gold is 100,000l. besides 50,000l. in the stocks. His other legacies are but few, and of no great amount. He was generous to the poor, always a friend to the necessitous, and an upright inau. At the residence house in Southwell, the Rev. Francis Herbert Hume, M.A. a prebendary of the collegiate church of Southwell, in the county of Nottingham, and rector of Carlton and of Warsop in the same county.

stant attendant on the bed of sickness, from whence he endeavoured to dispel the gloom of conscience, and to prepare the soul for a happy immortality. He possessed great humility, joined to the most engaging simplicity of manners. Those who were in habits of intimacy with him can alone estimate his private character; for to say that he was an attentive husband, au affectionate father, and a sincere friend, is not giving any adequate idea of his virtues.

Dr. Thomas Newton, Bishop of Bristol. The property of this gen

tleman, which was considerable,

was employed, to a liberal extent, in private acts of charity and beneficence, known only to the immediate objects of his kindness. In a more public and more lasting point of view, the noble institution which he founded some years ago at Lichfield, for the widows of clergymen, and for their unmarried daughters above the age of fifty, will sufficiently distinguish his name and perpetuate his memory. He o: a gratification which charity has seldom ventured to taste, and affluence has seldom lived long enough to afford. He gave, for the purpose above-mentioned, the sums of 20,000l. in his
