Suddenly, aged about 40, William Wight, of Ednam, well known in that neighbourhood as the author of various poetical pieces, some of which were recently collected and published by subscription, under the title of "Cottage Poems." Though born in a state of helpless and pitiable deformity, his assiduous perseverance early enabled him to overcome the combined disadvantages of nature and poverty, and, unassisted, to enrich his mind with knowledge and cultivation. But his literary acquirements were his least praise. It was his blameless life, his uniform practice of every virtue within his humble sphere, his unaffected piety, his cheerful resignation, his unrepining patience, his warm affection and gratitude towards those whose benevolence alleviated the evils of his lot-evils such as are rarely the portion of humanity-that gained him universal sympathy and approbation, and raised up for him friends in various parts of the kingdom, distinguished yet more by their character and talents, than by their station in life.

9. At Edinburgh, Charles Murray, Esq. many years a distinguished favourite on the CoventGarden boards. This gentleman was the son of Sir John Murray, Bart. of Broughton, secretary to Charles Edward, the Pretender, in the rebellion of 1745, who, after the final ruin of the cause of
his unfortunate master, retired to Cheshunt, în Hertfordshire, where, in 1754, the subject of this memoir was born. Charles, under the immediate guardianship of his father, received an excellent classical education, and was, at a proper season, sent into France, to perfect himself in the language of that country, a language which, from his youngest days, he spoke with the correctness and fluency of the most accomplished native. Being designed by his friends for the medical profession, he was, on his return to England, placed as a pupil with a London practitioner of eminence, and, having obtained a competent knowledge of pharmacy and surgery, entered into the sea service as a surgeon, in which capacity he made several voyages. Being tired of this service, he entered into an engagement with Mr Tait Wilkinson, and made his first appearance on the stage at York, in 1775, in the character of Carlos, in the Fop's Fortune, under the assumed name of Raymur. Thence he went to Norwich, and afterwards to Bath. At the death of the late Mr Farren, he entered into an engagement with Mr Harris, at Covent-Garden Theatre, where he appeared in 1797, in the part of Shylock, in the Merchant of Venice. In characters of sensibility and deep pathos, Mr Murray has been unrivalled; and in such parts as Old Norval, Lusignan, and Adam, "we shall never look upon his like again." Mr Murray has left a son and a daughter in the profession. The latter (Mrs Henry Siddons) is highly distinguished as an actress, both in tragedy and in genteel comedy, and is the present proprietor of the Theatre-Royal, Edinburgh. Her brother, Mr William Murray, the acting manager of that respectable theatre, is also a great favourite in this city.
