gathering at summertide on the beautiful lawn of Broomborough, accompanied with the good cheer set before them. These are only a few of his many good qualities." -Local Paper.

Suddenly, at Lee-park, aged 56, Elizabeth Warton, widow of Edward Stock, late of Plaistow, Essex, esq., J.P. for Middlesex.

Dec. 15. At Airth Castle, N.B., Sarah, Lady Anstruther, widow of Sir Alexander Anstruther, of Thirdpart, Fife, and daughter of the late Thomas Prendergast, esq.

At Sandhurst, Bournemouth, the residence of his father, Major-General Crawley, R.E., aged 36, Charles Crawley, esq., late Captain 15th Regiment.

At 9, Shaftesbury-cresent, Pimlico, aged 64, Marion, widow of Major David Lester Richardson, Bengal Army.

At Tunbridge Wells, aged 70, Frances, relict of Lieut. James Stanes, R.N.

At the Manor House, Ullesthorpe, aged 82, William Simons, esq.

At Glasgow, aged 69, the Right Rev. Dr. John Murdoch, Roman Catholic vicar apostolic for the Western District of Scotland. Bishop Murdoch was a native of Enzie, Banffshire, where he was born on 11th November, 1796. He studied chiefly in Spain, and on 19th March, 1821, was ordained a priest. On the 20th day of October, 1833, he was consecrated Bishop of Castabala, by Bishop Scott, to whom he was coadjutor, and since that time, a period of thirty-two years, he has laboured faithfully, zealously, and with all toleration, for the benefit of his people. To many outside of his own religious creed, Dr. Murdoch was known as a true-hearted, loving, and loveable man, firmly grounded in his own persuasion, but in no way anxious to thrust his tenets where they were not desired. There are few of the public charitable institutions in Glasgow, in connection with which his name will not be found creditably associated. - Glasgow Daily Mail.

In Paris, aged 57, M. Alexander Bixio, a native of Italy, but better known as a French statesman. He was educated for the medical profession, but abandoned it for politics, first in Italy, and then in France. He took part in the insurrections of 1830 and 1848, in the latter of which he was wounded before the barricades. When Louis Napoleon was elected President, he appointed M. Bixio Minister of Commerce, under the Prime Minister Barrot; but M. Bixio resigned on finding that he was required to give up to the President foreign despatches without open

ing them. He was then sent to Mazas, and since his liberation he has firmly resisted all the overtures made to him by the Government, although he assisted them in some matters connected with

the Italian question. His funeral was attended by Prince Napoleon, and a large concourse. An anecdote about the deceased, current in the crowd, is worth preserving. "During the hottest excitement of the June rioting, while Alexander Bixio, on Place Bastille, was energetically urging a stoppage of the firing, a wretched cantinière was seen by him on the point of being massacred by the Garde Mobile; rushing to her rescue, he was told 'she was selling poison to the troops, who were decimated by her drugged brandy;' then let her die of her own devilish compound,' cried Bixio:

come, woman, toss off three glasses of your stuff, and run home to die.' Gladly did she go through the ordeal, and she was one of the grateful followers of her deliverer's funeral."-Globe.

Dec. 16. At his residence, 12, South Parade, Bath, the Rev. John Brickenden Frowd, D.D. Senior Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. In early life he was a chaplain in the Royal Navy.

Dec. 17. Aged 66, the Rev. John Ball, B.D., for thirty years vicar of St. Lawrence, Reading.

At Dunmanay, Belfast, aged 77, the Rev. Dr. Montgomery. He was for many years the acknowledged leader of the Unitarians of Ulster, the agent for the distribution of the Royal Bounty to their ministers, and one of their professors of theology. He was one of the most eminent men that Ulster ever produced, possessing a rare combination of personal and intellectual endowments. As head master of the English department of the Belfast Academical Institution, he was for many years the teacher of most of the middleclass youth of Ulster; he was a powerful champion of religious freedom in its widest sense, and was greatly respected by the late Sir Robert Peel and other English statesmen; and, as the Northern Whig remarks, no Belfast deputation to the Government for any liberal object was expected to be successful without his presence.

Dec. 18. At Antibes, France, aged 66, James Close, esq., formerly of Naples, Chevalier of the Neapolitan Order of Francis I.

Dec. 19. At Ashley Lodge, Cheltenham, aged 43, Major Laurence Henry Peel.
