Sept . 6 , at Tapton-Grovc , near Sheffield , at an advanced age , William Shore , Esq ., for many years an active partner in the banking-house of Messrs . Parker , Shores and Biakelock , Sheffield . Of a naturally retired disposition , his high worth and active intelligence were little known beyond the circle of his family and intimate friends . His virtues were of an exalted order . He had a
discriminating judgment , which preserved him equally from the danger of imposition , and enabled him to see the merit of a good cause . He was one of those who contributed largely to benevolent institutions , and was an active friend and supporter of the Dissenting Interest , but who had the singular merit of not allowing his right hand to know what his left hand did .
Lately , at his apartments in Skinner Street , aged 67 , Thomas Hinton Bi / rley Oldfield , Esq ., the well-known and much-respected author , of the " History of the Boroughs , " and many years actively engaged in the political world in an extensive conuexion with the boroughs of England , the returns for many of which he was in the habits of managing ,

August 13 , Mrs . Tryphena Olive , in the 86 th year of her age . Mrs . Olive liad been more than sixty years a member of the congregation assembling at the Unitarian Meeting , Hill Street , Poole . Her religious views were what are called low Arian ; but the principal turn of her
fcnind was not controversy , but piety ; in which she excelled . As an instance of the pious turn of her mind it may be mentioned , that she had her stated times of private devotion , which she would allow nothing to interrupt : thus , while she lived in this world and enjoyed it ,
being of a cheerful disposition , she was assiduous in preparing for the next . For the last two years of her life , through a fall , she was confined to her room , and frequently in great pain , which she bore with pious resignation and patience ; and in the intervals of abated affliction her
usual cheerfulness returned . In the morning of the day , in the evening of which she died , she was cheerful , and as well as she had been for some time ; but seemed to have a presentiment of her approaching dissolution . On this her last day , as she had done many times
before , sbe read on the subject of death : she safd she was very comfortable and happy . A little while after she had dined , a change took place ; and after remaining a few hours in a dosing state , she expired . Those who sleep in Jesus will Ood bring with him .
