The following biographical sketch of Mr.EDWARD BROMFIELD, jun. is • from the pen of the Rev. THOMAS PRINCE, formerly minister of the Old South church in Boston, a man of integrity, learning, and piety. We are happy in rescuing from obscurity the memory of a man, who, though he died at the early age of TwenTY THREE YEARS, lived long enough to discover that be possessed genius and talents, which would have adorned any country, in any age. That his surprising talents would have been devoted to the glory of his Maker, and the good of his fellow-men, had his life been prolonged, there is the best reason to believe, as they were sanctified by religion, and under the government of a pious heart.
