Our August Obituary announced the untimely death of a Friend, the earliest Contributor to the London MAGAZINE, Octavius Graham Gilchrist:another is now added to the list

of precious Friends hid in Death's dateless night. The following notice appeared in the daily papers :

Died at his apartments in Upper Conway-street, on the 8th of September, Richard Ayton, Esq. aged 37, fourth son of the late W. Ayton, Esq. of Macclesfield.

Who will not feel sorry to hear that the above paragraph records the Death of our R. A.? While his description of Johnny Wolgar was delighting every heart, his own was become cold even as that Old Sea Roamer's. Manly sense, and an original tum of thinking, with a sprightly graphic manner of telling his story, and a vigorous, yet unaffected style, were the characteristics of R. A. as a writer. His virtues as a Man are a theme for his friends to muse on, too sacred at present for the language of panegyrie. The most natural expression of our opinion on such a subject would be thought too strong, and would be perhaps liable to the imputation of proceeding from an undiscriminating regard. We shall leave therefore to a future time, when his essays will be collected, and published together with some of his letters, the full record of his character : he put so much bead and heart into all his writings, that every scrap of them is valuable.

He died of atrophy, which in proportion as it consumed his body seemed to emancipate his noble mind, which was never displayed more fully than towards the last.


The gentle and sensitive Robert Bloomfield, another Friend and Correspondent, though not of the LONDON MAGAZINE, ought not to pass to the grave unnoticed. We are obliged to one of our oldest Contributors for affording us the means of doing justice to his memory, a tribute the more valuable because it is so rare among Brother Poets.


Tuou shouldst not to the grave descend The merry HORKEY's passing cup

Unmourn'd, unhonour'd, or udsung: Should pause—when that sad note was Could harp of mine record thy end,

heard ; For thee that rude harp should be The Widow turn HER HOUR-GLASS up, strung,

With tenderest feelings newly stirr'd; And plaintive sounds as ever rung And many a pity-waken'd word, Should all its simple notes employ, And sighs that speak when language fails, Lamenting unto old and young,

Should prove thy simple strains preferr'd The Bard who sang THE FARNER'S To prouder Poet's lofty tales. Boy.

Circling the OLD OAK TABLE round, Could Eastern Anglia boast a lyre

Whose moral worth thy measure owns, Like that which gave thee modest fame, Heroes and heroines yet are found How justly might its every wire

Like ABNER AND THE WidowJones; Thy minstrel honours loud proclaim : There GILBERT MELDRUM's sterner And many a stream of humble name,

tones And village-green, and common wild- In Virtue's cause are bold and free;

Should witness tears that knew not shame, And e'en the patient suff'rer's moans, By Nature won for Nature's child. In pain, and sorrow--plead for thee.
