OBITUARY.-Rev. B. L. Edwards.


Jan. 2. At Northampton, aged 66, the Rev. Benjamin Lloyd Edwards.

He was upwards of 45 years Minister of the Independent Congregation assembling at King's Head Lane Chapel in that town; and during that lengthened period proved himself the ardent and uncompromising friend of civil and religious liberty. His professional services were characterised by the lucid arrangement of his subjects, the perspicuity of his style, and the fervid earnestness of bis mauner; but whilst enforcing his own views of the peculiar doctrines of Christianity, he was never betrayed into the slightest violation of candour or liberality; and the benevolence of his disposition prompted him to the habitual exercise of charity towards the temporal wants, as well as towards the religious opinions of all within the circle of his connexion. But the most distinguishing trait of his character was his unbending, inflexible integrity. Regardless of the frowns of his opponents, and uninfluenced by, though not insensible to, the smiles and approbation of his friends, he had only to ascertain the line of his duty, and no selfish or personal considerations could induce him to swerve from it.
