Obituary.

DEATH OF THE REV. DR. JOHNSTON.

It would be unjust to the memory of peculiar worth and benevolence, were we not particularly to advert to the character of this venerable Clergyman, who died on the 5th of July last. Ile was the second son of the Rev. Mr Johnston of Arngask, Fifeshire, and the maternal grandson of the Rev. Mr Williamson, St. Cuthbert's, Edinburgh: his youth was sedulously devoted, under the inNuence of early, piety, to the studies connected with the same high and important office which these, bis near relatives, so honourably filled. After being ordained Minister of Langton, in Berwickshire, where he remained about six years, he was chosen to the Church and Parish of North Leith; and, during the long period of his life and ministry there, never did any of his people regret his appointment to so important a charge. On the contrary, the warmth of his attachments, the conscientiousness of his integrity, the ardour of his benevolence, and the consistency and the estimableness of his whole conduct as a minister, a Christian, a citizen, and a friend, ever secured for him their affection and esteem.

The simplicity and earnestness of his public ministrations, in preaching the doctrines, and enforcing the duties of the Gospel, and the diligence and fidelity with which he equally discharged, so long a she was able, the private functions of the ministry, in catechising his people, visiting them from house to house, and attending their beds of sickness and death, commended him to all who knew him as one who had his divine Master's work, and the spiritual welfare of the people, most sincerely at heart. Their interests, temporal as well as spiritual, besides, he felt as if they had been his own; and long will it be remembered, that, in this respect, to many a widow he was as a husband, to many an orphan as a father, to many of the destitute and helpless, a steward of Heaven's bounty, their protector, and patron, and support:

The activity and extent of his public benevolence are so well known to all in this vicinity, that it is scarcely necessary to particularise them. This, indeed, we should have no small difficulty in attempting, for there were few, if any, charita ble institutions, not in Leith only, but in Edinburgh, whether they had for their object the relief of the temporal wants and calamities, or the ameliorating the spir al condition of his fellow men, to which he did not promptly and liberally contribute, not of his substance only, but so long as he was able, of his time and influence, and other talents. When he heard of any case of distreas, in short, he coald not rest till he had done something, if possible, to remove or alleviate it;

and numberless, as well as indefatigable, were his personal exhortations and solicitations to others in behalf both of individuals and of institutions, whose resources were straitened, or required more abundant supplies. In the establishment and success of the Asylum in Edinburgh for the Indus. trious Biind, of which he will ever be regarded as the revered and beneficent founder, the funds of which he may justly be said to have created by his own unremitted zeal, and to the personal superintendence of which he, for many years, dedi. cated a portion of every day, though he had to come to it from his own house in Leith, he has left a monument behind him far more precious and durable than any column, even of marble, could present-a monument of gratitude in the hearts of many, who, though deprived of the light of day, have been trained to useful industry and virtue, and had their minds enlightened with the beams of divine and saving truth-a monument of great and extensive beneficence, which will perpetuate his memory, and, we trust, continue to increase in its power of doing good to many, for generations to come.

For several years before his death, though not till after he had reached an age considerably be yond the ordinary days of the life of man, and thus had survived almost all his early contemporaries, it was evident to his friends that his mind became gradually enfeebled, even when his bodily vigour was scarcely impaired. It was his memory, however, chiefly, that had lost its strength; his affections were not less warm, nor his concern for the good of others less ardent. In the kind attentions, and statet public services of his Assistant, and now his Successor, Dr Ireland, he found every thing he could have wished to relieve him from anxiety, as to parochial duties, and in those of his attached private friends he experienced every comfort that he could enjoy. Of a large family, but one daughter survives him; and while he was to her every thing that a father, she was to him all that a daughter, could be.

The last public service which he performed was addressing the communicants in his own church, at the second table, in the month of April last, when he was within a few days of completing his ninetieth year; and even, at last, his death was by no means anticipated; but it found him in an attítude the most desirable and enviable-that of prayer to that God whom he had served so in. dustriously in the Gospel of his Son, for a period of nearly sixty-six years, and by whom he was, without almost a bodily pang or struggle, called to enter into the rest that remains in Heaven.
