From an overdose of morphia, taken medicinally, aged 23, Dr. Ritchie, one of the most rising physicians in London. "Last week," says the Medical Times and Gazette, "he was quite well; now he is in his grave. On Thursday night he was well, cheerful, and busy; on Friday afternoon [Dec. 29] he was dead. He had been in the habit of working late at night and taking strong tea; then, being wakeful, he took occasionally a little morphia. It had on two or three occasions been difficult to rouse him in the morning, but last Friday he could not be roused at all. He had evidently taken an overdose.

An inquest was held, and these facts were brought out, as well as the proofs that he was in very prosperous money circumstances, and was about to start on Friday for a week's holiday in Scotland with his relations.

He was for a short time entered in Lodge's "Peerage and Baronetage," and also in Mr. Walford's "County Families," as having succeeded to the baronetcy; but as no satisfactory evidence was produced to show upon what ground he assumed the title, his name has been omitted from more recent editions.

Then Frouty ran forward and sounded the charge, the men advanced, and the Mamelon Vert was carried. The old bugler received the cross of the Legion of Honour for this daring act. His brother, a labourer like himself, attended the funeral, likewise wearing the cross of the Legion of Honour, which he had received for saving several lives during the late inundations. - Galignani.

At Rosslea, in Fermanagh, aged 95, Luke Lynch, "a man," says the Ulster Observer, "who might with justice be cited as an illustration of the saying 'that it is amongst the Irish peasantry the real nobility of the country may be found. Although this man occupied a comparatively humble position in society, and although he was born and lived all his life in a retired district, he could trace

a direct line of descent from the Redhanded Neill, from the Owen Roe, from the O'Reillys of Cavan, and from the M'Mahons of Monaghan and Dartry. The deceased had a brother who, about forty years ago, emigrated to South Carolina, and settled at Cheraw, where he became an extensive planter. One of his sons was a major-general in the Confederate army, but was prevented by sickness from taking active service. Another son, James, was a colonel, and commanded on James's Island, off Charleston, during some of Gilmore's most determined attacks; he died in the service. Another son is the Right Rev. P. N. Lynch, Bishop of South Carolina, who lately visited Europe on a diplomatic mission from the Government of Mr. Davis, and while here he visited his uncle at Rosslea. At that time his father was in good health, and on a visit with another son, Dr. John Lynch, of Columbia S.C. The deceased was a man of very considerable attainments, and intimately acquainted with every phase of Irish politics. could freely converse on every political change that came over the country since he saw the volunteers of 1782 under drill, and he retained his mental faculties to the last."
