TESTANTS OF ALL DENOMINATIONS. rpiIIS Institution, which has been established nearly fifty years, | offers to Ministers peculiar facilities foV providing an AN- NUITY for a WIDOW, of from £ 10 to £ 50. Its capital of £ 22,000, which Is yearly increasing, has been raised, not by shares borrowed, bearing interest; but, with the exception of a few Legacies, from the subscriptions of its members. It will he seen by a reference to the annual reports, that the business of the soci- ety is conducted at a comparatively small cost; and as no profits are made by any pat-ties, all the advantages arising from improved finances are shared by all its members, either by increase of annuitv or reduction of premium the increase on. the former amounting in the last few years, according to length of membership, to 29 40' and 60 per cent. The premiums are calculated on the most mode- rate scale, consistent with the financial safety of the Society The llw which provides that a member leaving no widow the sum of from £ 100 to E400, according to the amount-of anrwity, shall be paid to his child or children, of whatever age, is a guarantee that the sum he contributes must ultimately benefit his family. No fee is demanded on admission beyond one year's premium paid in advance, which is carried to the individual's credit, and his beneficiary interest commences the moment such payment is made. To families, where there was no widow, various sums, from £ 100 to E320 have been paid, amounting, almost in all cases, to consider- ably more than the premium paid.

SUDDEN DEATH OF THE REV. DR. PAYXB, PIWFEsscn OF THEOLOGY, &C., & IN THE WESTERN COIILI,,GF,. Payne was found dead in bed on Monday, the 19th in-r., He"p: e .ched on S mdav evening at Mount-street chapel, Dt- vonport. The subject of his discourse was the love of (iod- "God is love." He declared with emphasis to the congrega- tion that he wished to proclaim this great truth with Lis clyL: breath, and such was the case. After the service, he fch very much fatigued and almost warn out. He ret red at his ordinary hour, and no one expected that his end was lieai. Not appearing at the usual time on Monday morning, the ser- vant entered his bedroom and, lo! the spirit had taken 1> flight to a better world. He by quite composed, and givin all the indie itions of having depar ei probably while asleep. Three, weeks ago, in -ejlying to a testimonial presented to him by his past and present pupils, he expressed a wish that, wh n he should be disabled from attending to his official duties, I kind Providence would take him to his rest. The Wish of U: pious and venerable man has been gratified. An inquest m s held on the following day, when, after hearing the evidence, Miss Pajne, the servant, and the senior student, the jury turned a verdict to the effect that he died from natural caus. We believe his useful life was terminated by an affection of th heart. IN a lecture at the Manchester Mechanics' Institute, Mr. }', Warren said The first cotton cloth was made in. Derby 1773 by Messrs. Meed and Strutt, and it was then prohibited by law from being sold in the market."
