MRS. And Miss Tewxbury.

Mrs. Tewxbury died at East Lulworth, near Wareham, Dorset, Jan. 19, 1803, aged 73; and Miss Tewxbury, her only child, died at the same place, April i, 1803, aged, 34. Two funeral sermons were preached at the village on the occasion, by the Rev. B. Cracknell, of Weymouth. Before Mrs. Tewxbury's departure, she expressed an ardent wish that her daughter might soon follow her; and now, we hope, both have entered into that rest that remains for the people of God. While they remained in this mortal state, they were active supporters of a gospel-ministry; and principally through their exertions evangelical ministers have been encouraged to preach at Lulworth. May the inhabitants of that village still enjoy the divine light of the glorious gospel!

These female disciples of Christ not only laboured with ministers of the gospel iii life, but the same disposition influenced them to devise means that should protract their usefulness when removed beyond the present sphere of action; they therefore consecrated part of their property to promote the glory of Christ. Two hundred pounds are left to the congregation of Protestant Dissenters under the pastoral care of the Rev. J. Banister, at Wareham; and one hundred pounds to the London Missionary Society. "For whether we live, we live unto the Lord ; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live, therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. Happy is the people who are in such a case, whose God is the Lord."
