Robert Murray Mccheyne, a Scottish clergyman, born in Edinburgh, May 21, 1813, died in Dundee, March 25, 1843. He entered the Edinburgh university in 1827, where, besides the usual course, he studied modern languages, and became proficient in gymnastic exercises, music, and drawing. He began to study theology in 1831, and in 1835 was licensed to preach by the presbytery of Annan, beginning his labors in the parish of Larbert. In 1836 he was called to St. Peter's church, Dundee. His health failing, he went to Palestine with three associates on a " mission of inquiry to the Jews." Upon his return he resumed his labors at St. Peter's till 1842, when his health again failed, and he undertook a preaching tour to the north of England. A collection of his works was published in 1847 (2 vols., New York), and several volumes of his remains, letters, and fragments have been since issued. His life has been written by the Rev. A. Bonar (new ed., 1853), and a "Memorial Volume," originally issued in 1845, had in 1874 reached a sale of more than 100,000 copies.
