A PROJECT has been formed for the establishment of two great fishing societies. The imperial Association, with a loan of a million, propose to give encouragement, by the loan of money, to the establishment of •tores, of caslcs, salt, and other materials, for curing all round the ifland, both to the Deep Sea Fishery and the Coast Fishery; and Co make .t grand d?p£: in London, as an article both of internal consumption and foreign trade. The Royal Western Fishery, with a capita] of 300,0001. is for the purpose of establishing a fishery on an extent of coast, reaching over the Nymph Bank to the Scilly Islands, and from Cornwall to South Wales.

Proposals for a new theatre, to be called (be Alfred Theatre, are in circulation. The theatre is to be built and supported by subscription; 52,0001. to be raised for the building, and 21,0001. yearly. The theatre is to be either in the parish of Marybone, Br that of St. George, Hannover-square. None but subscribers, their families, and friends, are to be admitted to the perform, ances, which are to consist entirely of moral plays, two in a week; and a committee is to expunge from old plays they may adopt, every immoral piu'agc. The chief proprietors and subscribers will amount to 600, from whom the directprs are to be chosen, and who may introduce their families and friends; other persons arc to be admitted by ballot. It if suggested that they may easily collect an audience of 1000 unexceptionable persons, but thac (hey will not be able to fioture performers sufficiently virtuous to e&htbil before such an audience.

On Tuesday, Feb. 26. the Society for rcaintarning and educating Poor Orphans of Clergymen till of age, to be put Apprentice, held their anniversary meeting at the Freemasons' Tavern, Great Queen-street, LincoiQ'i-inn-ficlds, which was numerously and •cry xcsptcui/ly alwndsd.—Tttelve poor or

phans (out of twenty petitioners) were elected inlo the Society's schools. The committee appointed to carry into effect the resolution of the general court io November 1809, as to fixing upon a spot for new schools and promoting subscriptions for building the same, made their report: from which it appears, that the place they have chosen is a part of St John's Wood Farm, a very healthy situation about half a mile north of Bakerstreet; that one of the schools has for some time been covered in, and the internal work is now in a state of forwardness; that the subscriptions to the undertaking have been very liberal, amounting to upwards nf 90001.( and the committee entertain a confident hope, from what they have already experienced, that a benevolent public will enable them to complete their whole design without breaking into their permanent funds.

On Monday, M.irch 11, a very numerous meeting of noblemen and gentlemen waft held at the Freemasons' Tavern, for the purpose of founding a permanent institution to carry into effect his Majesty's views with respect to the introduction of Merino sheep, it being fully ascertained that this Vdluable race or aniirmls arc. admirably adapted to the soil and climate of the British empire. A complete unanimity prevailed through the assembly, and every individual seemed anxious to aid this great- national object. An establishment was formed under the title of the Merino Society, rules and regulations were adjpteil, resolutions pjssed, and officers ap. pointed; after wllkh nearly *SjO noiilemen and gentlemen became members. The Right lion. Sir Jo,eph Batiks, who has so loug and jealously supported the Merino'cause/presided as chairman.

At his house in DuvalVlane, near Hornsey, after a short illness, in the 65th year of his age, Mr. John Leech, formerly an eminent leather seller on Snow-hill. He was a man much and deservedly respected in all the relative situations of life, and he has left a widow and seven children to lament the loss of the best of husbands, and most tender of parents. As a man, he possessed from nature first-rate talents; read much; his judgment in moit cases was correct, whicli induced him to select the most valuable and important parts of what came under his consideration and perusal; and a considerable originality of thought, and a great independance of mind, which taught him to despise where conviction was insufficient, though this doubtless made him enemies amongst men who implicitly received other's opinions without examination in matters of reliiion and civil policy, but it is a conduct, wiiirh, as lovers of tiuth, we must admire. -The«e qualifications in Mr. Leech, made him a rationally agreeable original, and instructive and eloquent in conversation.

In a coach, on his return from the house of a friend, (supposed by the rupture of a blood vessel) Richard Dalton, esq. of Camberwell, in the ;j >ii year of his age, a native of Wigton, in Cumberland, and late a partner in the stationary business of Messrs. Wright, and Gill, Abchurch-lane, London, and. latterly asscVuted with the Messrs. Kiys. His disposition was so modest and retiring, that no one .knew the worth of hit character, who was not intimately acquainted with him. He has been repeatedly solicited by the inhabitants of the ward in which his house of business stood to be their alderman, which he as constantly declined, from a love of books and retirement, and a contempt of civic honours; for, having been the partner of t«o gentlemen whn had served the office of Lord Mayor of London, he had seen too much of the office to induce him to covet it. His manners were modest and unassuming; no one ever saw him pay court to a rich or powerful man; no one ever heard him converse with one in humble life, but with respectful attention. His mind was stored with various reading, and he united, in a degree almost unexampled, the most correct and measured understanding, with the kindest and most benevolent heart.

Baron Jcbn Henry Neuman, aged 67, formerly an oflicer in the Austrian service, author of the Marine Dictionary, Sec. and lately an eminent translator of languages. .Hit attainments as a linguist, have nrely been, equalled.

On Tuesday, Feb. 19th, at Great Stanmore, in the 65th year of his age, Mr. William Parker, many years the faithful servant and confidential agent of the late Thomas Clutterbuck, esq. and his family, of that place. Devoted from his inlancy to the interests of a family from whom he had received his early education, he served them, during the long period of fifty-three years, with an attachment and fidelity so remark* able, as seldom to be equalled, and perlups never exceeded, by any one placed in a similar situation. From a knowledge of his long tried and faithful services, and from a, conviction of his warm and affectionate disposition, he had long been considered as a friend; and with such ardent gratitude did he repay the confidence reposed in him, that the interests of h.s master's family became his own, and his honest heart was elevated with joy, or depressed with grief, in proportion to the vicissitudes of success or disappointment, affliction or happiness, incident to the concerns of a numerous family during their progress through life; but gratitude to bis master's family, and unJcviating rectitude in all his transactions with mankind, were not his only virtues. Deeply impressed with the genuine truths of the Christian religion, he never failed to put them in practice whenever visited by domestic afrlctinn, or bodily infirmity; and during his last illness he displaced the same pbty and resignation to the divine will, which had marked every action of his well-spent life. He retained his faculties to the last, took a solemn and affectionate leave of his friends and relations, gave his dying aomonition to bis children, and transacted his worldly concerni with a fortitude and composure truly exemplary. Some time betore his death he received the sacrament, and, without a single instance of complaint or murmur, resigned himself ti the will of his Maker without a sigh or groan. He was followed to the grave by all the surviving sons of his deceased master, who 2 N Wished,

wished, by this last tribute of tfierr esteem and affection, to consecrate the memory an* virtues of an honest servant and faithful friend.

At the house of his rnother, T.jdy Ssrtoon, the Ikn. &«an, brother of Lord 8altoun, in the 23d year of his age. He expired after > few hours illness, deeply re' jretted by his family and numerous connections, among whom may be mentioned a new banking or bill-brokering house In the city, of which he was the nominal head.

At Clifton, in the 74th year of her age, Zlvtahetb, Tlowager Countess of C«v«n, a lady remarkable for the variety of her accomplishments, and the extent and solidity «f her mentalendowments. Withthegreutestrrfinerricnt, taste, and elegante of manners, her ladyship combined the most dignified independence of mind, tn her character there was nothing little, nothing mean or selfish; all within was great, generous, noble, and truly becoming her exalted station. For several years she was unable, from bodily infirmity, to leave hrr apartment, yet her almost unremitting sufferings neither impaired the cheerfulness of her disposition, the wamtth if her attachment, the playfulness of her. wit, nor her varied powers of conversation, tvhich continued to the last atohce to charm and endear her to the small circle of friends' who were so fftrtunate as to be honoured With her intimacy. Her remalHs were interred tn Brute! catheUral.

Aged 76, Sufcrf Chi it, I«j- one of the magistrates of the Police-office, Shadwcll, and above 50 years in the commission of the peace, and a deputy-lieutenant for tne county of Middlesex.

Mr. Gnrgt BAcr, late of St. P»olN Church-jard. He was horn at Hungerfurd, in the county of Berks, in January 1717, where his father, flic Rev. Thomas Baker, (whose worth still survives in the memory of the inhabitants,) was vicar nearly thirty years. At the age of fourteen he came I* London, and was placed in the counting, house of a West India merchant, whence he removed, in 17(j7, to St. Paul's Churchyard, under the patronage of a materrul aunt, at that lime engnged in the business of "a lace merchant; which commerce he continued till the time of his decease, with unimpeacbed integrity. Early in life he shewed a taste for the arts, and afterwards became a xealous and liberal collector of orawings and engravings, and of many valuable works of literature, in the choice ■f which, be evinced a moat accurate, die

crimination. This pursuit engaged much of the time that could be spared from business; and, together with the society of certain eminent artists, farmed the chief source of his pleasures. In the works of Hogarth, Woollet, and Bartolozxi, and in the publications which issued from the press at Strawberry-hill, his collection can hardly be surpassed.

At Laytonstone, tUn. Parsm, widow, well known by her literary works. She was reduced from a state or" affluence to the hard necessity of writing to provide for a numerous family. She published in 1790, "The History of Miss Meredith," 5J vols. 1 '.'mo.; and wrote also "The Errors of Innocence i" «* Ellen and Julia;" "Lucv;" "The Voluntary Exile;" and " The Girl of the Mountains;" novels, all of which ate respectable performances: and *' The Intrigues of a Morning," a force.

In Harley-strcet, Weary Heft, ttq. the most eminent merchant of bis time. He was descended from a branch ef the noble family of the same name in Scotland, anti was barn at Boston, in New. England, in the year 1736. At the ajtc of thirteen he tame to England to complete bis education, andj in 1754, entered into the bouse of Goraell, Hoars, and Co. There he remained till 1760. When making a visit to his uncles, who were gTtat merchants in Holland, they were so pleased with his amiable miaoera and disposition, as will as with hit talsnts, that they engaged him to quit the house in London, and become a. partner wkh thciB ia Amsterdam. On the death of his uncle, Adrian Hope, in 17R0, trie whole business of the house devolved upon him, and be managed it in so high a style of good conduct and liberality, as to draw the attention, and raise the admiration, of all Europe. Though he constantly refused to take any office, yet he was always held in the hifhest consideration by the government; he was visited by nil distinguished travellers, even by crowned heads. His acquaintance wax courted by all ranks of ptxiple; at the Exchange he was the chief object of attention; the men of business formed themselves in a circle round liioi; and foreign ministers pressed forward through the crowd to apeak with him on tire financial concerns of their respective) countries. The magnificence or his talile, and his general mode of living, ifccre suitable to the. splendour of bis situation, from Holland he made ec casional visits to this country, p.ulv far health, and partly to lee*p up "his connexion with many friends and eminent persons here; and, particularly, he employed the summer of 1786, in a general tour round this island, accompanied by two of his nieces, tan daughters of his sister, Mrs Goddard. the eldest of whom married Mr. John Williams Hope, son of the Rev.
