np'HE Rev .Thomas Jones,M. A. 1 Fellow and Tutor of Trinity College, Cambridge. He was a native of North Wales, and in .1774 he became a Student of St. John's College, where he remained a year, and then removed to Trinity. In 1779 he was senior Wrangler with extraordinary reputation; the second Wrangler the same year was Mr. Herbert Jvjarsh, the translator of Michælis, and now Jady Margaret's Professor of Divinity. The distinction with yrtiich Mr- Jones had appeared in the Senate-House examination, rendered his progress to a Fellowship easv and certain. Soon after his, election, Mr. Crank, the Tutor •f the College, appointed him

Mathematical Lecturer; in which public important situation he enjoyed all the opportunities that he desired of extending his reputation. The Lecturer of a great College, such as Trinity, is surrounded by a numerous attendance of pupils, some of whom, in general, are of distinguished abili. ties, and therefore the Lectu. rer feels his exertions called forth by the powerful motives which such circumstances afford. The lectures of Mr. Jones were not dry repetitions of what mere reading could supply: he considered his subjects in their first principles and their detail, in which view also he presented them to his auditors. The most inter

CStirig problems in philosophy "and analytics were reviewed by him, and those which appeared to have been defectively treated, he demonstrated.to his pupils on new grounds. The Principia of Newton, astronomy, optics, and fluxion?, were,the principal subjects of his mathematical lectures. His system of fluxions has always been, considered as particularly valuable. Mr. Jones professed to have been guided in that important Branch of science by the light ■which the celebrated treatise of Maclaurin affords: but the manner in which he has established ihe evidence and applied the principles of the calculus, is equally distinguished by its novelty and its elegance, and displays the happiest mathematical genius. Mr. Janes was in (he years 1786 and r17S7, senior Moderator of the .University; and in the capacity of Examiner he was principally instrumental in introducing Dr. JPaley's " principles of Moral and political Philosophy" into the examination. On the resignation of Mr. Crank, in 1787, he was appointed one of the two Tutors Gf Trinity, which office he filled with considerable profit and reputation. In private life the character of Mr. Jon«s was verv amiable, and the, best evidence of it was to 65 found in the universal esteem .and affection of the numerous "individuals with whom his public ^situation has in a long series of years connected him.

At .Westminster, George Atjyood, Esq. M.A.'and FiR.S. He Was'the son of tlæ^Rev. Mr. Atwood, tformerlv Curate of St. Jrfirgaret's, Westminster. He was educated at Westminster School, from whence he removed to- Tri

nity College, Cambridge. In 1769 lie was Wrangler, arid in the same year he obtained the first of the prizes given" by Dr. Smith to two commencing Bachelors of Arts, the best proficients in Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. Mr. Atu'Ooti proceeded to his degree of Master of Arts and was chosen Fellow 6i his College, where also he'was'for some years ah eminent Ttator,'but as he declined entering into Orders, he vacated his Fellowship and settled in the metropolis- whefe he was chosen a Fellow of'the Royal Society, and Was 'much employed bv governrrSerif in' financial calculations.

In 1734, he published, in one volume octavo, "A Treatise ohthe Rectilinear Motion and Rotation of Bodies,^ with a description ef Original Experiments relative to the subject;" a work where clearness of arrangement and extent of utility toward affording the Student a Just understanding of' the various distinctions of Motion, which occur in the "material world, can only be excelled by the exquisite elegnnce of operation and application, which pervades every proposition. In this volume are contained a plate, and'a description of experiments made witha singularly useful machine, invented by the ingenious author for demonstrating the theories respecting the rectilinear m'olibn of bodies which are acted upon by constant forces. At (he same time Mr. Atwood published, ""An* Analysis of a Course of Lectures on the principles of Natural Philosophy, read in the University of Cambridge;" a work no less"a masterpiece of its kind than the. preceding.

Mr. Atwood was a frequent contributor to the transactions of the Royal Society. One of the most important of his communications was in the first part of the volume for 1794, and is entituled, ,c Investigations, founded on the Theory of Motion, for determining the times of Vibration of Watch Balances."

Mr. Burrough whose death was noticed in our last number, page 495, was born at Carleton in the parish of Drig, about fifteen miles from Whitehaven. His father Was the Rev. Edward Burrough, minister of Drig and Irton, and master of the free-school there, who from the great age to which he lived and the vigour of his constitution, had the singular circumstance of instructing in his church and school, the fourth generation. At the usual age the son was sent to Queen's College Oxford, on the old foundation; and was cotemporary with Mr. Gilpin of Boldrc, Dr. Harrington of Bath, &c. About the time of taking his master's degree, he was invited to Rugby by Dr. Richmond, a fellow of Queen's, then lately elected upper master of that school, as bis assistant. Upon the doctor's resignation he became upper master, and continued to preside over that seminary with considerable reputation, twenty three years. On his resignation in 1778, he removed to Sapcote, to which living he had been presented that year by his brother-in-law Mr. Frewen Turner, of Cold Overtoil.

At Hertford, John Carr, LL. D. many years master of the freeschool in that town, and well known to the literary world as the translator of Lucian. He had felt ,a gradual decay for neariy a year

previous; but on the day of hit death he was supposed to be ini much better health than usual. He lived six hours after he was conveyed to bed, appeared to suffer no pain, and expired without a struggle. His library is to be sold by auction.

At Waters Upton in Shropshire, the Rev. Thomas Hatton, Rector of that parish.

For AUGUST, 1807.

We may indeed say, with truth, that the Church is in danger, while Religion is so coldly regarded by numbers whose immediate office it is to support its spirit and reputation.

He was presented by the king to the vicarage of Hackney in Middlesex; and was also rector of Ickford in Buckinghamshire, and of Newington in Oxsord
