Mr. Cunniniton, (whose* death is mentioned at p. 194, of this volume,) though brought up in the.bustle of trade, was ever assiduous to acquire knowledge, and possessing good natural abilities' his mind, at an early age, took a turn to scientific pursuits. This occasioned a sedentary mode of life, which deranged the nervous system; and for the last twenty years he became a victim to a debility which nothing but air and exercise enuld prevent from proving fatal. Thus Called upon to support nature, his daily rides, and excursions on the Wiltshire Downs led *nim to consider the numerous remains of An* tiquity that lie scattered over that interesting .district : and here it was that the foundation vvi laid for that splendid History of Ancient WUtshire, now carrying on by Sir Richard Colt lloarc, of Stuurhcad. With a nobleness of mind that sti/nps the character of the baronet, he has thus addressc.1 Mr. Cunning, ton, in the first part of his work, pielixcd to which is an excellent portrait of him: "Afen illustrious either for their noble birth, contpi. cuous character, or distinguished literary abilities, have in general engrossed the homage of dedications; but on the present occasion I shall deviate from this long established cus. torn, and gratify my private (eatings by paying a tribute that is due to justice and friendship. To you, therefore, Sur, who first projected the plan of this history, and by your interesting collections, und important discoveries, encouraged me to puisne it, this woik is most gratefully dedicated." Mr. Cunnington in this pursuit had procured a collection of British antiquities that were not, and perhaps never will be, suipassed by any in the kingdom; and, when this subject was somewhat exhausted, his mind led him to that of Minerals and extraneous Fossils, of which, he had procured a beautiful and interesting collection. The ready access that was given to view bis cabinets, and the pleasure he alwaya experienced in affording information, drew many virtuosi to hi- house, where they were

,<*o.]ej« charmed w'rh £.- Mujeum, thaa .jthey Jarre''with the arlability Of the possessor. in JiU (iumesttc character he was all that could caTi'•forth .«' the fond parental soul j"* and in Che happy c'ude rouad his fire-side. he diffused imnne; his young auditors those* precepts of virtue, those principles of knowledge, and those maxims of men t\nc manner* that will., ever rcirjain on the minds of thn-e Who heiird them.. Here also it was, that parental affection saw the rising virtues of the thihl—here were implanted r«osc seeds that bloomed around the' parent sieck—and here religion instructed the infant mind to look tliroujM Nature up to Nature's God. He died in his 57tl> year ; and his death was of that nature so calm and pure, which the good man hails as his real existence.

Mr. Christopher Turner Johnson, hte surgeon and lecturer on anatomy in Exeter, oculist to the west of Kngland Kye Infirmary, and member of the Royal College of surgeons of London, and of the Royal Medical Society of Edinburgh- His disorder was a typhus -fever, brought on, as is supposed, by a severe cold, combined with the ill effects of an accidental puncture by Scissars, employed in dissection. Mr. J. received a thorough professional education in Ed:nburgh and London: and his zealous application and eminent talents enabled him to come into the world at Che early age of twenty-four, with testimonials from Mr. Ashley Cooper, and Mr. S.mnders, indicating the highest possible estimation of his professional qualifications. It is less than two years since he came to reside at Exeter , but in that short period, he gradually acquired a degree of reputation for accurate and extensive anatomical knowledge -and surgical skill; for clearness, penetration, comprehensiveness, and coolness of judgment, and for temperate yet decisive firmness, which is rare at a more advanced period of life. He spared no expence or exertion in gaining, or in communicating knowledge. If it had pleased Providence to spare his life, there is no reasonable ground for doubt, that he would bave ranked among the very first of his profession in this island. He had a high sense of the utility of his profession j his unostentatious goodness prompted him to employ his Surgical talents among the poor, to an extent which is known bat to few j but those know that there are many in that class of society who weep for him as a kind benefactor.— His professional conduct was peculiarly calculated to conciliate the good will of Ml pro. '{< ssionai brethren. There was no assumption "of superiority to disgust, no mean arts to'injure: he carefully studied the proprieties of his professions and as carefully observed them. And in ail this be had Balking to do but to

follow the habitual promptings of his ovi upright, benevolent, heart. He had no obliquity of mind, net sinister views, no ends which required secrecy ; all was fair and open. Those who have the mournful satisfaction of' having shared his intimacy, never saw in him any tiring-that appeared unsuitable to what they expected from his character; and in proportion as this was known, the more it interested and delighted. His cultivated understanding, excellent sense, well regulated feelings, and sterling worth, in.ulethat intimacy regarded as a treasure ; and Iris delicaey of mind, his disinterestedness aaid generosity, his candour, kindness, simplicity, and sincerity, obtained the affectionate confidence of hii patients, and of all his friends.

A school ia opened in Edinburgh by the iatattstwian Society there. Mr. Lancaster lectured twice ir. the 'I htatre Royal, Edittbsugrt, to a raamcroui and crowded audience, ar..! was received with the acclamations of near 1900 persons.

Some time past hit Royal Highness the Dute of Kent visited Mr. .Lancaster's institution, the Royal Free-school, Borough-road. The impression made on ' the benevolent mind of his Regnal Highness was, that the leading parts ol the plan would be highly serviceable for the poor children in his >egir nient; and on the spot hq formed an arrangement for extending its benefits to '.'GO atoitlieri of his battalion. \ Mr. L. instructed one of the duke's non-commissioned officers in the system, and it was juudduced twelve months agp> at Maiden,. weie the bahalioa were then quartered.' Afterward; the. battalion removed to' Dunbar, and tbeoce to Stirling Castle. Tip effect of seeing the school Has been such on the wajftha/ magis-trates of Stirling, that they have granted the use of the Guildhall of that town for* ichuol-ioui), on condition thai a number, of

children of the town are a!lowed to parl-kr its benefits. Thus the Duke of Kent hao the merit of setting an excellent example tf> the regiments of the line, and Colonel M'Lcod and the officers of the 4th battalion, by seconding the benevolent wishes of their" rcyal commander with great energy, have done themselves much honour.

The cutting of the canal betwixt Clachrtaharry and Lochorss is now nearly completed; and, as nothing remains to be done hut the Sea Lock at Clachnaharry and the 'regulating Lock at Loch-end, there is little doubt but the communication to Port Augustus will be opened by the end of next year at fanhest.

As he. advanced in lite, a considerable variation was observed ia the use which he had of his faculties. For some time he was under the necessity of using spectacles; and during the last few yeais of bis life he could read the sou)lest print, without tl'.ern. When he was about seventy, having secured the affections of a woman who had some money, he thought hini.elf too old or too rich for being bellman. Another was appointed, win kept the office twenty-five years, at whose death John applied to be reinstated. He discharged the duties of the office till within ten days of his ile'jth; apd in the exercise of it he recovered the use of ail his faculties, which had become much impaired during the period or his inactivity. He had two daughter* (twins) by his last wife.
