was taken into business by one of his own relations. Here he recommended himself so much by his obliging deportment, by his fidelity, punctuality, and accuracy, that he soon rendered himself necessary to his employers, and ultimately took the lead in one of the most respectable West India concerus in the city. His mind seemed to expand with his circumstances, and his generous and liberal spirit is well known to a numerous circle of respectable friends and associates, as well as to the community at large. He was most ample and exemplary in his charities, and gave encouragement to all those institutions, so creditable to the place of his residence, which have for their object the general interests of humanity as well as the relief of individual distress. In particular, he took a warm interest and a fatherly charge of the Highland society, as well as of the Gaelic schools, and his memory will long live in the hearts of the members of these institutions. Although cut off, almost in the prime of life, he may be said to have lived long by the energy

Mr Campbell was born in Perthshire, from respectable parents, who were connected with some of the first families of his name. At an early pe. iod of life he came to Glasgow, where he
