], wife of Mr. Thomas SCARROW, jun. spirit-dealer.
On Monday evening, aged 70, William MITCHELL, of this city, formerly for many years a tailor and slop-dealer here; much respected. Mr. MITCHELL's dissolution was occasioned by a fall down stairs, whereby his skull was so much injured that he survived but a few hours.
On Saturday last, very suddenly, through one of those mysterious visitations of Providence which have occasionally befallen the most pious, Mr. Matthew HIND, aged 23, son of Mr. John HIND, shoemaker in this city. However afflictive to his relatives and friends the circumstances connected with his death,—their reflection upon the manner of his life must doubtless tend to abate their grief. The deceased, who was in the confidential employ of an extensive manufacturer in Carlisle, was remarkable for his sobriety, steadiness, and attention; and, in the more varied walks of life, he was conspicuous for his moral and religious virtues, so as to render him equally beloved and esteemed.—Should the occurrence we have noticed give occasion to the infidel to point a jest or make the supercilious sneer, the humble Christian, sensible of the "infirmities flesh is heir to," will wonder whilst he adores.
Last week, in this city, Mrs. Grace CALDWELL, aged 76.
Yesterday week, at Powbank, in the parish of Dalston, aged 60, Mr. John STRONG.—By his dissolution society has lost a most valuable member. The eminent qualities of his heart were truly evinced by his sympathetic feeling for the unfortunate, for whom he sacrificed much of his time and influence—removing their embarrassments; and as a man of peace, he was highly influential in reconciling the animosities and controversies of his neighbours; amongst whom he lived generally beloved, and died generally lamented.
Yesterday week, Mr. John NIXON, of the Angel inn, Penrith, aged 65 years.
