    With pleasure, we can assure the Publick, that the Paragraph in some of Yesterday's Papers, promulging the Death of Mr. Trimble of Francis-Street, is without Foundation, that Gentleman being in perfect Health.
    It is with uncommon Regret we convey the following Piece of melancholy News to the Public, as it must diffuse Grief as far as the Subject's Name is known. Late last Wednesday Evening died of a Fever taken in Child-bed, Mrs. Steuart, Wife of William Steuart, Esq; of Stafford-Street, in this City, and Daughter of Sir Richard Butler, Bart. She enjoyed her Senses to the last, and bore a painful and distressful Disorder, with that patient Submission, which accompanies "The gay Conscience of a Life "well spent," and indicates that Sweetness and Serenity of Temper, which rendered her as universally beloved in Life, as she is now lamented in Death. From a most just and exalted Sense of Religious Duties, flowed all the social Virtues in the highest Degree: For to the tenderer Offices of Society, filial Piety, conjugal Love, and parental Affection, and Friendship hardly to be paralleled, she added the most extensive Benevolence and Charity, with native Politeness, and the most engaging Affability. And what hightened all these excellent Qualities, they were the pure Emotions of her Heart, and were consequently as unaffected, as they were void of Ostentation. No wonder then, that Words cannot express the Heart-felt Sorrow which attends this Lady's Death. Yet it must be every good Man's ardent Wish," So to live, and so to die.-- Let me die the Death of the Righteous, and let my last End be like his!"
