God under , the endearing relation of ** Our Father . " A parent ' s piety and ^ example were not lost upon the subject of this brief notice . Mr . James Viney adhered through a long life to the simple and efficacious faith of Unitarian Christianity , and adorned his religious profession by a consistent and virtuous practice . His departure was sudden ; but the belief that
" Death cannot come to him untimely Who is fit to die , " affords a rich consolation to surviving relatives and friends . His earthly remains were interred in the burial ground of the General Baptist Chapel , and an appropriate discourse was delivered on the following Sunday , by Mr . Buckland , of Benenden , from Matt . xxiv . 44 , " Be ye also ready , for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh . "
Emma Catherine Heineken . Nov . 12 , aged 24 years , Emma Catherine , the beloved wife of the Rev . N . & . Heineken , and only surviving daughter * of the Rev . M . L . Yeates , Minister of the Unitarian congregation in the same town .
Mrs . Harrop ofAshton-under-Lyne . After a severe attack of pleurisy and inflammation of the lungs , by which the powers of life were exhausted , on the 18 th of November , early in the morning , this most inestimable woman
breathed her last breath . Her family not anticipating so fatal a termination of her complaint , were by no means prepared for the shock it created , and from the hope attendant on fancied convalescence they were plunged into an abyss of indescribable misery .
The deceased , whose maiden name was Turner , took her lineage from a very ancient and respectable family of that name , long seated in the township of Godley , and for many generations closely connected with the dissenting interests of the surrounding
neighbourhood . This family have been somewhat remarkable for longevity , numbering in succession her grandfather 81 , her grandmother 82 , her father 91 , and her surviving mother now in the 92 nd year of her age . To these generations the hoary head futs been honourable , for they have all been found in the way of
righteousness . Nurtured in such a stock , and transplanted into a family * equally respect-* One of this family , the uncle of her husband , was educated for the ministry , an 4 sustained the duties of that appoint-
able , and long eminent for irreproachable conduct and religious zeal , she became a fond parent , and in the purest sense of the word an affectionate wife . Her house was her orbit , and she moved in it as a pattern of all the domestic virtues . Exemplary in the duties of attending public worship , except indisposition prevented her , she seldom omitted appearing at the head of her family to unite in the solemn service of the Lord ' s
day . Unassuming in manner , blameless in conversation , happy in the society of her husband and her offspring , her solicitude for their common welfare was apparent in the whole of her conduct , while her kind and hospitable
disposition endeared her to a numerouscircle of acquaintance . She for thirty eight years fc looked well to the ways of her household ^ ' yea , she reached forth her hands to the needy ? e Her children arise up and call her blessed ; her husband also , and he praiseth her .
It has often been remarked that scholars and retired students have little of novelty or variety in their pursuits to vary the uniform tenor by which one year succeeds another— " another and the same . " The truth of this
observation will be quite as appropriate to that portion of the female sex whose avoca tions are purely domestic , and who , sequestered from the world , keep on " the noiseless tenor of their way . * ' Such were the qualities , and such the home which Mrs . Harrop adorned and made
happy . Time has always exercised a lenient influence over sorrow , and the sorrows of her afflicted family and friends can only through His aid , united with that of religious resignation , be ultimately alleviated .
Lady , Beevor . Nov . 23 , at her home , the residence of Sir Thomas B . Beevor , of Hargham Hall , Norfolk , Bart ., died JL * ai * y Bekvor , in the 30 th year of her age , of a slowdecline . She walked with God ; and she waa not ; for God took her . "
ment nearly half a century . Declining in vigour , he quitted the more active pursuits of life for the comforts of privacy at his residence , Hall Lodge , near Altringham , where in his 87 th year , and enjoying a * green old age , " he participates in all that can render the evening 1 of life desirable— -independence , the love of his children , and the veneration of all who have the pleasure of his acquaintance . The Rev . Robert Harrop is the oldest minister in the district .
