-At the Manse of Rerwick, at the great age of 80, the Rev. James Thomson, minister of that parish. He was a profound scholar, a piously persuasive orator, and a heavenly example to his people. Few men have passed through so long a life with a more amiable character. lt may be truly said, in his heart there was no guile. Six of his sons, grown to manhood, attended the funeral, and consigned the mortal remains of their reverend father to the grave. Several years ago, one of his sons was appointed his assistant and successor, and it is a singular circumstance that the parish of Rerwick, as is said, has not been vacant since the Reformation.

3. At his mother's house, Stirling, at the early age of 14 years, Mr William Graham, son of the late Captain Edward Graham, of the Honourable East-India Company's Bengal artillery.

-At Edinburgh, James Bell, Esq. advocate. Had it not been for the natural weakness of his constitution, which, without repressing his intellectual energies, effectually interrupted his public exertions, there can be little doubt that Mr Bell would have eminently distinguished himself in the honourable profession to which he belonged. By those who had an opportunity of appreciating them, his talents, both as a lawyer and a man of letters, were well understood to be of the highest order.

At 22, Windsor-Street, Edinburgh, Cecil, youngest son of Samuel Joseph, Esq.

-At his house, Smith's Place, Leith Walk, in the 63d year of his age, and the 58th of his ministry, the Reverend Thomas Aitchison, pastor of the first United Associate Congregation, Leith. To those who were acquainted with the benignity of his disposition, the rectitude of his conduct, the ardour of his faith, and his zeal in his Master's service, any eulogium of ours would be unnecessary. He was beloved and esteemed by his friends, and he is regretted by all. He discharged, in an eminent manner, the duties of the ministerial office, and " was an Israelite, indeed, in whom there was no guile." Of his professional character, the chief feature was undoubtedly his devotional talents. There was a fervency and pathos in his prayers which never failed to make a deep impression. We have often listened to him with delight, and returned humbler, if not better men. Mr Aitchison's public and private life are an imperishable monument to his imemory. His name is associated with almost every laudable and charitable institution of the metropolis; and, to every cause of benevolence, he was a willing and stedfast friend. He exemplified in private the duties he enjoined. Few men have appeared to more advantage, when sickness or bereavement were claims upon his sympathy and condolence. The cause of the afflicted and widowed sufferer was his own. His death-bed scene was a Christian triumph, and a demonstration of his faith. ring a long and painful illness he displayed the most tranquil and resigned disposition, and often prayed in spirit, "Lord, not my will, but thinc


be done." He closed his eyes in peace, stedfast in his faith, and confident in the hope of a glorious immortality. Mr Aitchison had his trials, but they are over. His griefs are bounded by the grave; but his joys can never pass away. "The good man dies-it grieves us; Why should the good man die? He dies-but, dying, leaves us A lasting legacy."

We must not forget to mention, that we have seldom seen a funeral so respectably and numerously attended, or witnessed a greater concourse of sorrowing spectators. He has left many weeping friends, and a disconsolate widowed wife, to lament his loss. His highly-respectable congregation has been deprived of a faithful pastor, whose whole soul was in his duty. Yet they sorrow not as those who have no hope." For, "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, they shall rest from their labours, and their works shall follow them." "Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace."
