In London, on the 16th ult., in the 35th year of his age, the Rev. Frederick Bradshaw HOOLE, one of the curates of St. Andrew's, Holborn, London. Mr. H. was the only son of Mrs. HOFLAND, by her former husband, the late Mr. Bradshaw HOOLE, of Sheffield.— The following just estimate of the character of this worthy and excellent minister, we copy from the Town Journal:—"Perhaps there was never a man more calculated to fill, and fulfil the duties of the sacred office, which was his own free choice, than the individual whose loss we mourn in common with the many poor, on whom death has closed a hand 'open as day to melting charity.' A curate's income is, indeed, prescribed, and if in any way he adds to it, it is by an increase of labour—a multiplicity of duty—under which the constitution sooner or later must, as in the present instance, faint and fall. There are few persons aware of the immense bodily exertion required to carry the curate of one of our overgrown Metropolitan parishes through the absolute business of the day, and for which, in general, a stipend is paid according to the sterling generosity, or the reverse, of the rector's principle.— The great merit in the humble and holy path pursued by the late curate of St. Andrew's was that he found wherewith to minister, not out of his abundance, but out of his necessaries, to the wants of others. He performed a workhouse duty, for which he received, but never appropriated to his own use, the sum of £50 per annum—it was invariably returned to the uttermost farthing, for the purpose of distribution amongst the poor—and this surely was no small sacrifice. It is selfish to deplore the loss of one whose mortality has put on immortality, and whose pure and gentle spirit is now with Him from whom he came. We mourn not for the dead, but for the poor who are bereaved of a true & indefatigable friend, 'zealous of good works;' and that his mother, Mrs. HOFLAND, whose name is engraven on the hearts and memories of all the young, and many of the matured persons of this and other lands, has now no son. Mrs. HOFLAND has somewhat advanced in the vale of years, and the staff upon which she leaned has been snapt in twain—it has been her sad task to close the eyes which she first taught to look on heaven. His last hours were, indeed, those of consolation to all around him; and free from every vestige of that suffering which, during the past months, he endured with such exemplary patience." [Mrs. HOFLANE is of a Cumberland family. Her immediate ancestors went from the northern bank of Ulswater, where, from time immemorial, they had, as yeomen, held a respectable rank in society.]
