and hale, to a degree which falls to the lot of very few, and so continued till almost the last hour of his long life. To the affable manners of a gentleman of the old school, be joined the more essential qualities of strict integrity, punctuality in all his concerns, and much real henevolence. Like most other men of compassionate minds, he was fond of brute animals, and loved to be kind to them. Arra believer in Divine Revelation, and relying upon the Gospel as the pillar of his hopes, he thought well of all serious and candid professors of religion, whether they agreed with him on minute points or differed from him.
At Twickenham, Thomas Rea Cole, esq. major in the army. He was second son of the late Stephen C. esq. of Twickenham, and brother-in-law of the late Sir James Ibbetson, bart. of Denton park, in Yorkshire. For many years he acted as a justice of the peace for the same county, and once was chief magistrate over the populous town of Leeds, in which capacity he acted with justice and benevolence. He also served his present Majesty during the seven years' war; and, as a reward for his good conduct at the siege of Belleisle, was advanced to the rank of major, at the age of 23 years. In private life he was meek, humble, and just.

The Duke of Monpensier, second son of the Duke of Orleans, unhappily distinguished by the name of Egalité. It is well known that the duke fell a victim to the violence of a revolution, the course of which he could not foresee, and his family fell with him from the height of rank and splendour to the depths of horror and misery. The elder son of this family, now duke of Orleans, sought refuge in America. By the prevailing party, which regarded compass on as an ignoble sentiment, and unfit for a place in the bos m of staunch republicans, the two younger brothers were, in 1793, plunged into the dungeons of Fort St. John, at Marseilles. Here they languished together during the long period of 43 months. Nor was their captivity lightened by the cheerful hope of a favourable termination Barbarity was the order of the day; and it shewed itself hardened against the tender feelings of humanity, by wantonly predicting to its victims daily the fatal termination of their captivity. The brothers, however, made an attempt to escape from their prison. The youngest, the Count de Beaujolois, succeeded, and had arrived at a place where he was secreted in 'security. But the Duke of Montpensier, in descending from the walls which it was necessary to pass, iell from a considerable height and broke his leg. by means of this accident he was retaken, and returned ta his dreadful habitation. The Count de Beaujolois, on being informed of this misfortune, renewed the celebrated example of Niss and Euryalus, and surrendered himself without delay to share the imprisonment of his brother. At length, in one of the changes of the French government, the brothers ob tained their release, and after great suffering they joined their elder brother, the Duke of Orleans, in America. From that constry they came to England, where they found
safe and honourable asylum. They were favourably received by the royal family; and the Duke of Montpensier, in particular, met with a sympathy, capable, i any thing were so, of al eviating his sufferings. Her Majesty even condescended to furnish him with various articles of accommodation from her own palace. The duke terminated a career marked by misfortune, sorrow, and distress, with a constancy of mind and elevation o character which would have insured applause in the high station to which he was born. In the short space of 32 years, he manifested exemplary firmness and magnanimity, united with uncommon talents At the tender age of 16, he displayed heroic courage in Champagne, and particularly at the battle of Jemappes. But his example is perhaps still more beneficial, when considered as supporting with fortitude the privations and adversities of exile, whilst it affords a lesson o moderation to those of the highest honours and rank of lite. His remains were deposited, on the 26th of May, in Westminster Abbey, with great funeral pomp; but it is expected that the body will be removed to France, when peace per. mits. It was brought from Salt-hill, where the duke died, on Monday, and lay in state, in King-street Chapel, Portman-square, till removed to Westminster Abbey. The Duke of Bourbon was chier mourner; and the carriages of the Duke of Sussex, Duke of York, and Prince of Wales, attended the funeral.
men appear censurable, yet they were by no means unbecoming the character or deportment of an upright magistrate. In cases of a common or trivial nature, he at times seemed to evince a laxity of attention; but although he might be supposed to slumber over what was unworthy of the exercise of his great powers, yet justice was never asleep. With an excellent fund of manly eloquence, with a mind forcible and vehement, when roused into an extraordinary display of his penetrating vigour, he shone most when combatting the subtleties or genius of a counsel for a prisoner. Thus, in the words of a distinguished actor, like a great performer on the stage, he reserved himself, as it were, for the last act, and after he had played his part with dignity, resolved to finish it with honour.
In New-street, Spring gardens, aged 76, John Wasdale, M. D formerly of Carlisle. At the coronation of the present king, he went from Carlisle to London in 28 hours, upon horseback; was present at the cere mony, and returned there again in 30 hours, after an absence of five nights, three of which he slept in London. His loss will be severely felt by the natives of Carlisle resident in the metropolis, to whom he was ever sincerely attached and ready to give his profes sional assistance. He held the honorary office of private secretary to his Grace the Duke of Norfolk, which he discharged with the greatest punctuality and honour.
In Hertford-street, May-fair, Edwin Francis Stankope, esq. L.L.D. It is far beyond flattery to speak of Mr. Stanhope as he deserved, whose hope was engaged, during a life of 80 years, in the attainment o a blessed and glorious immortality; yet it may be a proper tribute to his memory to say, that he ranked among the best classic scholars of his time, and possessed no common measure of manly sense and brill ant wit. His police urbanity of manners, his attention to serve and delight, his integrity of mind, his extensive yet modest charity, so beautifully described by St. Paul, Al-which seeketh not her own;" his loyalty and affection to the royal family (particularly to the queen, whom he attended from Mecklenburgh Strelitz to this country, and had the honour to serve more than 40 years); but above all, his constant and strict regard to the duties of religion, crowned his long life with esteem, and rendered his death deeply to be deplored, for their own sakes, by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. His remains have been removed, to be buried in the family vault at Tithby, in Nottinghamshire,
At his house, in Queen-street, Brompton, aged 64, Nicholas Bond, esq. of the public office in Bow-street He was an active, vigilant, and able magistrate. Initiated in the school or the celebrated Sir John Fielding, he possessed in an uncommon degree the best qualities of his master. Endowed with a good natural understanding, his legal knowledge and sound judgment were eminently conspicuous. He was a warm and a zealous friend; had the affections of the mind with the glow of sincerity, and with those whom he respected and loved, could unbend to the free participation of the social virtues. ways berriending the honest pour in opposition to the tyrannic rich, the former viewed him with gratitude and admiration. In his professional pursuits his memory was surprizingly tenacious, never forgetting a circumstance that was worthy of remembrance. His conversation was there.ore fertile in anecdote; and his he filled a great space in the eye of the public. A stranger to the refinements of the world, he was simple and unaffected in his manners; and although the purity, and even austerity of his conduct, might to some

On account of the increased price of coals at Carlisle, a committee has been appointed to take the subject into consideration, and likewise to devise the best means of supplying the city with that necessary article. A meeting of the committee was held for this purpose on the 9th of June; and as it ap
peared that the increased cost of coals had solely arisen from the high price of cartage, and unavoidable delays: it was resolved that a survey should be immediately made, with a view to consider the best line of a canal to the sea; which should not only bring down coals from the west of the county, but might also be the means of conveying ship timber, or any other article of bulk. Upon the nearest calculation, it was reckoned, that not less than 30,000 tons would annually pass along the canal to Carlisle, occasioning a saving in the carriage of goods of 80001. per annum to the city of Carlisle and immediate neighbour. hood, independent of the county at large; and a clear yearly revenue of 40001.

The Liverpool Bill of Mortality, for the year 1806, exhibits some very satisfactory proofs of the increasing healthiness and population of that large and improving town. The number of deaths is only 2395, being 446 less than the preceding year, and computing a population of 80,000, it amounts only to about one in 33, which is a less proportion than obtains in any other town of equal size in the kingdom. The number of births is 3831; so that the increase of inhabitants by births alone in a single year, is no less than 1536, exclusive of the increase from various other causes.
