OBITUARY. We announce with deep regret the death of the Rev. Dr. Valpy, upwards of fifty years an inhabitant of Reading. He was nearly the whole of that time Head Master of the Grammar School of that place. To deep classical learning he united the most extensive general knowledge ; habitually studious, and having enjoyed the advantage of travelling in foreign countries, his tact was very great in communicating classical literature. His powers of conversation were transcendent. As a preacher, his eloquence was fervid and persuasive. He was often called into the service of the public charities with great success; always devoted to genuine Christianity, his piety was sincere, kind, and unostentatious. Name,
