Nov. 21. At his seat, at Highbury in Kent, in the 74th year of his age, Abraham Newland, Esq. Cashier of the Bank of England for upwards of 30 years. Mr Newland was the son of a baker in Southwark; and he owed the conspicuous situation he held in the Bank to his own perseverance and unremitting attention to his pursuits.

and after lamenting to his kindred and neighbours the irreparable loss he had sustained, he was observed, by some involuntary impulse, to bend his course to the usual place of resort; and as the occasion was no doubt doubly afflicting, he regaled himself and revived his spirits by a double dose of the best. It is generally understood that his widow will succeed to the vacant office; but his youngest son John, now in his 63d year, who is well known, at all the country weddings in the neighbourhood, as a musician of considerable eminence, is likewise a candidate; and his pretensions, doubtless, are supported by very strong hereditary claims.

At Dublin, in the 105th year of his age, Mr Thomas French.

23. At Kinfauns, near Perth, in the 87th year of his age, Andrew Hall, kirk-officer, beadle, and sexton of that parish. He succeeded his father, or, in his own words, came to the Post in the year 1742; and it is a circumstance not only remarkable, but probably unequalled in the history of the Church of Scotland, that his grandfather, his father, and himself, held that office, in regular succession for the long period of 160 years. Andrew was originally a tailor; but, after he became an office-bearer in the church, he relinquished that trade, and became a fisherman on the Tay, working as a gardener or labourer when not employed on the water. He was distinguished by

his ardent attachment to the interests of
our present Royal Family. During the
rebellion in 1745, having refused to paste
upon the door of the kirk some treasonable
advertisement, he was taken into custody
by a party of the Highland army stationed
at Burnfoot, and detained for several days
as a prisoner. Pretending inability to read
the paper, he was soon after liberated; and
Andrew used, in his old age, to relate the
unshaken firmness with which he bore his
confinement, as well as the address by
which he at last effected his escape, as no
small proof of his bravery and wisdom.-
He bore all the marks of a genuine grave-
digger; and may be considered as the last,
in this part of the country, of the old
school of beadles. His uniform conduct
afforded a striking proof of the effects of
habit. It was his regular practice, after
every funeral, to adjourn with some com-
panions to a public house, where he spent
the whole earnings of his mournful duties.
Upon the interment of his first wife, which
happened after an union of half a century,

February 10. At London, Murrough Marquis of Thomond. His Lordship was riding, attended by a groom, in Grosvenor Square, when his horse taking fright, got upon the pavement, where he fell, and precipitated the Marquis with violence inte the horse way, where a waggon cart com. ing hastily by, one of the wheels ran over the body. He was taken into Lord Blandford's house, where he expired in about half an hour. His Lordship was in his 85th year, and was married to Miss Palmer, niece of Sir Joshua Reynolds, but had no issue. His Irish title, the Marquisate of Thomond, descends, with his estates, to his Lordship's nephew, Captain O'Brien.

of the 80th regiment, Receiver General of the Duchy of Cornwall, and one of the Prince of Wales's Council of State. His Lordship was taken ill about three days before, (on the 17th) while attending the trial of Gen. Whitelocke, which occasioned the postponement of the trial for two days.His Lordship eminently distinguished himself in his country's cause on the Continent, in Ireland, and, lastly, in the East Indies, where he added greatly to the glory and honour of the British name, and was created a Viscount, and raised to the Peerage on the 31st of October 1807, as a reward to which his merit justly entitled him. He was much attached to, and much esteemed by the Prince of Wales. He is succeeded in his titles and estates by his eldest son (now Viscount Lake,) who was present at the dissolution of his father. His Lordship was, we believe, about sixty years of age, but his constitution was much impaired by the climate of India.
