By the removal by death of Mrs. Townsend, which took place at her residence, Bartholomew-street, on Sunday, the poor of Newbury and the neighbourhood have lost a friend and benefactress whose ear was ever open to a cry of distress or a tale of pity: and whose assistance as readily extended to relieve their necessities and afford the help that was needed. Her charity was continually being bestowed, and though at Christmas or periods of general suffering it was more amply and widely dispensed, it was never confined to times or seasons. Many will have occasion to recollect with grateful feelings the repeated acts of kindness extended towards them in poverty and affliction.


The funeral will take place, we believe, on Saturday next, at the Cemetery.
