    Mr. Wrighton, whose character in public and private Life is most respectable in the Eyes of the Commons and Citizens, would undoubtedly have had many Votes upon this Occasion, had he not held an Employment subject to the Ministry, which is looked upon to be incompatable [sic] with the Office of Magistrate.
     Mr. Alex Pope, Gent., of the City of Waterford, is sworn into the Office of Master of Chancery, for said City, by a Commission issued for that Purpose.
     We have an account by the last Packet, that on Wednesday the 7th inst. died at Clifton [England] the Hon. Lady Harriet Fitzgerald, third Daughter of the most noble Marquis of Kildare.

As this young Gentleman gave early Proofs of the greatest Genius, Assiduity, and Charity in his Profession, eminently possessed every social Virtue, and exemplary filial Piety in particular, the Loss of such a Friend to the Public, such an Ornament to his Profession, and such a Comfort to his Family, is easier conceived than expressed.
