studious, able, and expert; and, in the discharge of every moral and social obligation, a most exemplary ornament of virtue and rectitude, worthy of imitation.

Jan. 16. In Doctors' Commons, suddenly, in bis 59th year, George Bogg, esq. many years an eminent proctor. He had no relative to inherit the large property he had acquired..

Rev. James Howell, rector of Clutton. In her 100th year, Mrs. Bowey, of Exeter, formerly a very respectable mil liner.

Jan. 18. In a hackney-coach, on her return to Brompton, the truly respectable widow Neate, one of the oldest pew. openers of Brompton Chapel. The life of this good woman was laborious and humble: though laboricus, however, it was not indigent; and though humble, it was not uninstructive. Many and most trying to her had been its unambitious vicissitudes. From apparent competency her lowly fortune at one time brought her to comparative straits; but her mind possessed native and acquired resources sound judgment matured by religious principle, and by its elasticity, constantly kept her above querulousness and despondency. At one time, she was comfortably settled in the world, and happy with a husband of honest character, and with a family of eleven duteous children. These and several other blessings she outlived; she resigned them with sighs of buman affection, but looked to a re-union beyond the grave with fullness of Christian hope. By all her acquaintance, her patience and well-doing were highly appreciated: and by numbers of her richer neighbours, her worth was substantially honoured in ways at once liberal and delicate. Her integrity was irreproachable. She was entrusted often with the care of collecting the pew-rents, with a considerate view, perhaps, to the possibility of her receiving certain little pecuniary com

pliments, at the times of payment, from such wealthy houses as noticed her exemplary meekness and assiduity. In the discharge of this pleasing and confidential part of her manifold duty, Mrs. N. had very actively exerted herself throughout the morning of the day on which she died; and, with a scrupulesity of exactness always to be admired, but in the present instance only to be regretted, resolved to convey, herself, the collection of rents to Mr. Smith, of Church-street, Kensington, before she took her hardearned repose. Ill had she calculated the power of her enfeebled and nearly exhausted frame to support such additional fatigue amidst the severities of a wintry season. At Kensington Gore her strength failed her, her spirits flagged, and she sunk down on the foot-path in the deliquium of Death!-and, mark we the boasted humanity of the spot! her silken umbrella was stolen from a faint and lifeless grasp; she was refused admission into the next public-house; and she would infallibly have breathed her last on the snows before the door, had she not been recognized..... A coach was called; she was lifted into it, and died on the seat of it as it drove slowly homeward!!!

Jan. 19. In Whitechapel, aged 82, Mrs. Ann Cawthorn, relict of the late Mr. Chas. C. of Leadenhall-street, hardwareman.

A

Jan. 20. In Cadogan-square, Isaac Schomberg, esq. a Captain in, and for the last years of his life a Commissioner for managing the affairs of the Navy; to retain which last situation, his health not allowing more active service, he, on a recent promotion, passed his Flag. life employed and consumed in the active and arduous enterprize of an honourable profession, and latterly in the equally useful and laborious, though less distinguished administration of its civil duties, should not be permitted to terminate without some notice,-and if this be true. as a general principle, there never was an instance in which its application was better merited than in that of Isaac Schomberg. He had served in every quarter of the Globe, and in all with distinction to himself and benefit to his country. As first Lieutenant of Captain (now Admiral) Cornwallis's ship, he shared in the danger and the glory of Rodney's 12th of April; and had his proportion of the well and hard-earned praise conveyed in the expression of the gallant De Grasse, after his capture," that he had suffered more from that little black-sided ship" (the) Lion of 64, commanded by Capt. Cornwallis), "than from any other during the engagement." He next commanded a frigate in the East Indies (during the Peace which commenced in 1783), where

he

[ocr errors]

he risked and lost all that under the circumstances he could put in hazard, his health. The effects of a liver complaint contracted on that service, were felt during the remainder of his life. On the 1st of June, 1794, Capt. Schomberg commanded a ship of the line in Lord Howe's fleet; and where "England expected that every man would do his duty," his friends and his country were not disappointed in the Commander of the Culloden. Soon after the commencement of the present War, he was appointed to the command of the Sea Fencibles at Hastings; and though with a large family, and a very limited income, had the rare and honourable merit of being the first to report that the establishment, over a part of which he presided, and by the emoluments of which he was in a great measure supported, was an useless and unnecessary burden to his country. Lord Mulgrave, then first Lord of the Admiralty, felt the value of the suggestion, and the merit of such a sacrifice of all personal considerations to a sense of duty; and, unsolicited on the first vacancy appointed Capt. S, Deputy Comptroller of the Navy It was soon found that by this appointment a meritorious officer had been superseded, and Capt. S instantly gave up a post, which he could not have held without wounding the feelings of its present worthy possessor, and was appointed to the vacancy occasioned at the Navy Board by Sir F. Hartwell's nomination to the office of Deputy Comptroller of the Navy.-Capt. Schomberg's services since he took his seat at the Navy Board, have been constant and useful, though from their nature not conspicuous or splendid; and to his unremitting attention to his office, much of his last fatal illness must be attributed. Mild and unassuming in his manners; firm and honourable in his mind, he sacrificed every thing to a high sense of duty.-England was his first and a just opinion of its value made his own profession and its members, its honour, and their welfare, his second object. The few hours of leisure in such a life were devoted to the drawing up of a succinct but clear detail of all the naval actions, from the first foundation of the English Navy, to the

Peace of 1785; a book affording at once a gratifying reward for past services, and a powerful incitement to future ones, the honourable testimony to fallen, and the bright example to aspiring merit.Such was the late I. Schomberg-he died as he lived, with manly fortitude and pious resignation-lamented deeply by his family, as the best of husbands and fondest of parents, and sincerely regretted by many friends who knew his worth both public and private, one of whom offers to his memory this last tribute of respect and esteem.

At Chandos-house, the illustrious Anna Eliza, Duchess of Chandos, relict of James, the last Duke of Chandos, mother to Countess Temple, and sister to Sir Rich. Gamon, bart.

At Boddicott, Oxon, Rev. Dr. Nicoll, chancellor of Wells, rector of Drayton, and late chaplain in ordinary to his Majesty.

Jan. 25. At her son's house in Alders-.. gate-street, in her 81st year, Mrs. Elizabeth Carpenter. Endowed with a strong and penetrating mind, she sustained with Christian fortitude a short illness previcus to her demise; and, sensible of a speedy dissolution, she fervently implored of the Great Disposer of all events for a removal from this transitory life, to those blissful mansions where true happiness and joy is only to be found.

In vol. LXXXII. Part ii. p. 598. a. we briefly noticed the death of Mrs. Freeling, wife of Francis Freeling, esq. Secretary to the General Post Office, Few events have excited greater sympathy in a large circle of relatives and friends. To piety of the purest and most cheerful kind, she united all that could distinguish the affectionate wife and parent, and the warm and generous friend. Regardless of herself, she never lost sight of the interests and happiness of others; she possessed the sweetest temper and the firmest mind; she pursued a steady course of active, yet unassuming benevolence; and her example, while it diffused comfort to those who were about her, had its effect also on their lives and conduct. She died in the 38th year of her age, after having fulfilled all the duties of her station.
