On the 27th ult., at the residence of her son, Sun-street, Exeter, Mrs. Mary Pillman. This venerable woman was a native of Wickleigh, Devon, and born on the 2nd of February 1742, Old Style; consequently, at the time of her decease, was in her ninety-eighth year, and it is not a little remarkable that she was baptized on the 9th of February, when only a week old, and being expected not to live! She retained her powers almost to the last, dining with the parishioners of St. Mary Major (the parish in which she for several years resided) in St. Mary's Yard, at the dinner given in honour of the Coronation of Queen Victoria, in June, last year. Her sight remained comparatively good, and she was enabled to sew, but about nine weeks since she had an attack of paralysis, and did not rise from her bed after. She lived to see five different Sovereigns sit on the British Throne.

Owing to the defective construction of the original trust-deed, it was found, only thirty years after its execution, to be quite invalid, and that the chapel had lapsed to Mr. Allen, and was entirely at his disposal, as heir-at-law of the last of the original trustees. He, however, most handsomely caused a new trust-deed to be executed and enrolled, conveying the chapel as a free gift to perpetuity to the church there formed, which favor they acknowledged with a suitable vote of thanks.

On the 17th instant, at his residence, Rue Chau[safe] d'Antin, Paris, Lord William Bentinck, in his 66th year.
