Excerpt: ...engraved for the Scoteh Art Union, and became very widely known. The subjects he chose were, however, chiefly Scottish. During the last ten years of his life, failing health compelled him to abandon his profession. Eugene Divxbia.--Not a few will learn with unfeigned sorrow that this talented artist and devoted Christian is no more. He died in his own house at Pau, Basses Pyrenees, on the 3rd of this month after an illness of only a few hours' duration, but which was attended with extreme suffering. His friends in Edinburgh, where he resided during 1851-2, know the chief particulars of his history. These cannot be detailed here; enough to say that to the last day 'of his life, he persevered in the good course on which he entered at his conversion from Romanism 20 years ago. While supporting himself by his profession as a painter, in which he attained con I siderable eminence, he fulfilled the duties not only of an elder, but almost of a second pastor, in the French Reformed Church in Fau. I He preached almost every Sunday evening in the National Chureh. Beloved by the young, he presided over the Sabbath school; and: though a hard-worked man, he found time to visit the sick and the distressed. His funeral, which took place the day after his death, was attended by tbe Prefet of the department, by the Maire of the town, and by at least 500 people. Many bitter tears were shed over his grave. He "lived so as to be missed," and long will his loss be mourned by the Protestant community of Pau. Age 59. ttsfaers to fawspitkitls.
