He graduated at Hamilton College, in 1826, and studied theology at Princetonóbut had previously spent some years in that most practical and efficient of all training schoolsóthe printing office, where he learned, not only the art of conducting a newspaper, but the secret of guiding and controlling the popular mind. He was never settled as a pastor, but labored as State missionary in New Jersey, principally in the cause of Sabbath-schools, and with the most marked success, until his health, previously shattered by his great efforts to complete his education, gave way altogether, after three years of a most useful ministry. He was noted for vivacity yet soundness of mind, for quickness of apprehension and perseverance in application. His death suddenly closed a career of much prominence at the age of thirty-one years.
