      William G. Stedman; who was born at Colchester, February 17th, 1816. In early life he was the subject of Divine impressions, and, while a youth, sought, and joyfully realized, the assurance that God had pardoned his sins. In 1839 he was accepted as a candidate for the Wesleyan-Methodist ministry; and, after travelling five years at home, was appointed a missionary to Jamaica, where he laboured for twelve years. When failing health compelled him to return to his native land and to become a Supernumerary, he chose for his residence the place of his birth, where he was affectionately welcomed, and where he rendered valuable service as an earnest preacher and judicious class-leader. Throughout the whole of his lingering illness he never murmured, but was piously and cheerfully resigned. He experienced the abounding comfort of the Holy Ghost, and, cultivating to the end a penitential consciousness of his past sins and of his present unworthiness, he firmly trusted in the merits of his Redeemer, exclaiming, with Mr. Wesley, -

      " I, the chief of sinners am, But Jesus died for me.
      " His weeping family having sung at his request the hymn commencing,
      " For ever here my rest shall be, Close to Thy bleeding side;" he exclaimed,
      " Come, Jesus, come,''' and quickly passed away to behold in unclouded vision the glories of his adorable Saviour.

      He died at Colchester, October 13th, I870, in the fifty-fifth year of his age, and the thirty-second of his ministry.
