DEATH OF DR ELRINGTON
It is our painful task on this day to record the very unexpected death of
the Rev. Charles Elrington, D.D., Regius Professor of Divinity, Trinity College,
Dublin, and Rector of Armagh, in the Primate's Diocese.
Doctor Elrington was a man of profound and extensive learning - a sound and
orthodox divine- firm in his character; and in all the social relations of life
amiable and highly respected. The Sabbath services of yesterday, in College
Chapel, evinced in their melancholy solemnity the place he held in the esteem
and affections of the members of that venerable seat of learning, of which he
had many, many years, indeed, been a distinguished light and ornament. The
chapel was hung in mourning draperies, and the funeral sermon was most
effectively preached by Dr. Todd. His demise, which took place at his parochial
residence, was sudden and is said to have been the consequence of an attack of
gout in the stomach.
