OBITUARY. Died at Edinburgh, in October, the Rev. Robert Gordon, D.D., long minister of the High Church. He was a man of great intellectual power, and philosophical character, and his style of pulpit oratory was of a fervid yet dignified cast, rarely witnessed in our times. With the exception of Sermons, his name was not known by published works in the literary world; but as a preacher and pastor, and one of the leading men in the ecclesiastical and educational movements of Scotland, he has long occupied an honourably prominent place.—Literary Gazette.
At Glasgow, on December 10th, in his 74th year, the Rev. Ralph Wardlaw, D.D. The deceased was an eminent Nonconformist divine, but was highly esteemed by men of all churches, and of all sects. As a man and as a public Christian teacher, he was an ornament to their common faith, and a benefactor to their common country. Though dead, he will continue to speak by his powerful writings, and by the savour of a holy and consistent life.
At his residence, near Dublin, on Oct. 26, Sir William Betham, Knight, aged 74. Few men have been more useful in public life than Sir William Betham. In the absence of an Irish aristocracy, his name was one which was in great request in the city of Dublin. Were a chairman required for any religious, charitable, or scientific purpose, Sir William was always ready and delighted to render all the assistance in his power. To his fellow-labourers in the field of letters, he was ever courteous and obliging; and as few were more fully capable of affording aid to the historian, the antiquary, or the genealogist, so he was always ready to give them the benefit of his extensive reading and research. Gentleman's Magazine, Dec.
In July, at Oxford, aged 73, the Rev. Godfrey Faussett, D.D., the Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity in the University of Oxford. Dr. Faussett was the author of Jewish History vindicated from the presumed unscriptural view of it displayed in the 'History of the Jews' of Dean Milman, and of several controversial sermons.
At Brasted, on December 25, Dr: W. H. Mill, Regius Professor of Hebrew and Canon of Ely. Dr. Mill was sixth wrangler in 1813. As a mathematician and scholar, Dr. Mill's attainments were of the very highest order; and the pursuits of his youth he continued as the relaxation of his maturer years. His acquirements in Sanscrit have won him a European reputation; and, as a contribution to the evangelising of India, as well as a classical production in that great language, his Christa Sangrita is a work unparalleled in modern literature. Dr. Mili's several publications as Christian Advocate are devoted to one of the most difficult subjects of Christian evidence; in them he has successively refuted the Pantheistic theory.—Guardian.
We beg to express our thauks to Clericus, and many others, for the kind and encouraging manner in which the last number of the Journal has been noticed by them. We would recommend to Clericus Jones's Persian Grammar as a good introduction to the language for one without a teacher. At the East India College, Hailey bury, after the Grammar, the text books are, the Akhlâki Muhsini, the Gulistan of Saadi, and the Anwâri Suhaili.
We are making arrangements for securing an early and full account of the state of Biblical Literature, in all its departments and languages; and in several other matters hope to make the Journal still more worthy of the approval of our readers.
