M'Cullagh, James, L.L.D. The melancholy death of this learned and distinguished professor, who perished by his own hand, at his rooms, in Dublin College, on the 23rd Oct., has cast a deep gloom over the literary and scientific circles in which he moved. Dr. M'Cullagh, who was only forty years of age at the period of his decease, was formerly Mathematical Professor in the University of Dublin, and succeeded, in 1843, on the elevation of Dr. Lloyd to the Senior Fellowship, to the Chair of Natural Philosophy. It would appear from the evidence at the inquest that his reason had been unsettled by intense application to some intricate problem, unaccompanied by that due

regard to the regulating of his health, rendered imperative by his sedentary habits and mental labours. Mackenzie, Mrs. Alexander, of Woolwich, 28th Oct., aged 42.

Mahon, Major Denis, of Strokestown, co. Roscommon. The barbarous murder of this unfortunate gentleman stands forth in dark relief, even among the atrocities which have of late years thrown so black a shadow over the domestic annals of Ireland. A good landlord, an upright magistrate, and a most active benefactor to the poor, Major Mahon has fallen a victim to the treacherous aim of the concealed assassin. Just two years since he succeeded, at the decease of his first cousin, Maurice, Lord Hartland, to an estate of the value of £12,000 per annum, and fixed his residence at the family mansion of Stroksetown, devoting his time and energies to the benefit of his tenantry, and the improvement of his land. Early in life he had served in the British army, from which he retired with the rank of Major. He was born 12th March, 1787, the second son of the Rev. Thomas Mahon, younger brother of Maurice, first Lord Hartland; he married, 17th September, 1822, Henrietta, daughter of Dr. Bathurst, late Bishop of Norwich, by whom he leaves a son, Thomas, born 30th October, 1831, and a daughter, Grace Catherine. The family of Mahon was established in Ireland, by Nicholas Mahon, Esq., a distinguished personage in the Civil Wars, and, from the period of its settlement, it has ever held a high position among the landed proprietors of the Sister Island, intermarrying with the most eminent houses, and frequently giving members to the Irish Parlia

Metzler, Miss, at Capt. M. Seymour's, R.N., Honduras, 26th Oct. Mendelssohn. This celebrated composer has shared the fate of Mozart and Bellini; he has died before the prime of life, in the fulness of his glory. This greatest of recent composers, whose death has caused a general lamentation, was born at Hamburgh, on the 3d Feb. 1809. His grandfather was an eminent Hebrew philosopher; his father was a wealthy merchant of Berlin. From his earliest youth, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy was a musician. Educated pursuant to the anxious care and hope of a mother, by the first professors and masters of Germany, he at eight years of age, played with marvellous execution and facility; in his ninth year, he performed publicly at Berlin. His first published compositions appeared in 1824; and soon after that period he rose up to the eminence which he subsequently enjoyed. Need we enumerate his productions, familiar as they are to the delighted ear of Europe? Need we do more to register his fame than to mention that he was the author of the music of the "Midsummer Night's Dream," Fingal," "Melusina," "St. Paul," and "Elijah?” In this country Mendelssohn was a cherished favorite, and the affection was mutual: he loved England as heartily as his home. He had been frequently amongst us from the time of his gifted boyhood. His triumphant reception in London, last spring, now brings a melancholy feeling in its recollection. On the 5th of last October, Mendelssohn was struck with apoplexy; and, although, as younger patients usually do, he struggled against the malady; it gradually overcame him, by frequent repetition, and he expired on the 4th instant, in his 39th year; thus bringing to an untimely termination a life graced by every private virtue, and illustrated by talents that class him among the greatest of his era. Mensdorff, Count Hugh Ferdinand. The Court has just been placed in mourning by the death, at Gödfeuberg, of Count Hugh Mensdorff, the Queen's cousin. He was a Bohemian Noble, the eldest son of Emanuel Count Von Mensdorff, G.C.B., by the Princess Sophia Frederica Caroline Louisa of Saxe-Coburgh, eldest sister of H.R.H. the Duchess of Kent. Count Hugh had only just completed his 41st year. He held military rank under the Emperor of Austria; and, at the period of his decease, was Colonel-Commandant

Parr, Thomas, Esq., of Lythwood Hall, co. Salop, aged 78, Nov. 12th. This gentleman was fourth son of John Parr, Esq., of Elm House, co. Lancaster, who descended from the ancient Lancashire family of Parr, of Parr (see vol. iii., p. 106). Mr. Parr was, early in life, a merchant of great eminence in Liverpool, and resided in Colquitt street, in the house, of his own erection, now occupied as the Royal Institution in that town. In 1804 he retired from business; and having purchased the mansion and cot. of Lythwood, he resided there during the last forty-three years of his life. He married, in 1803, Katherine, dau. and co-heir of Capt. Robert Walter, R.N., by whom he has left four sons and one daughter. The eldest son is the Rev. Thomas Parr, Rector of Westbury, Salop, J.P.

At the period of his decease, he had just completed his 78th year. By Henrietta, his wife, eldest dau. of Sir John Morris, Bart., of Claremont, whom he married 20th June, 1803, he leaves a son, the present Sir Joseph Francis Peacocke, Bart., and one dau. Elizabeth. Through his mother, the deceased Baronet descended from the ancient family of Cuffe, of Grange, co. Kilkenny; and through his great grandmother, from the Ponsonbys, of Crotto.

Newbery, Lieut.-Gen. Francis, Colonel of the 3d Dragoon Guards, 9th Nov., aged 70. This distinguished officer entered the British service in 1794, and rose through the various grades to that of a Lieutenant-General in 1830. In 1842, he also received the Colonelcy of the 3d Dragoon Guards. General Newberry acted in Ireland during the rebellion of Ireland in 1798, and was present at the engagement with the rebels, and the French at Ballinamuck. In 1816, he commanded the first cavalry brigade at the siege and capture of Huttrus. Again, in 1817 and 1818, he superintended the proceedings of the cavalry of the left division of the Marquis of Hastings' gallant army, which was the first engaged with the Pindarees, and he took the whole of their baggage and camp. He was subsequently removed to the command of the cavalry, with a light division, under Major-Gen. Sir Thomas Brown, and captured at one fort nine pieces of artillery, and took prisoner the Artillery General; he was afterwards present at several severe and successful attacks on the enemy's troops. The whole period of General Newberry's service comprised 53 years. Normann, Harriett Jane, wife of H. Burford Normann, Esq., of Duchess street, and dau. of the Rev. Samuel Alford, of Heale House, co.

don-street., 5th Nov., aged 68. Riddell, the Right Rev. William, D.D., Catholic Bishop of the Northern District, 2d Nov. Dr. Riddell is one more addition to the ever-glorious list of pious and devoted priests whose lives have been sacrificed in the performance of the sacred duty of attending and solacing the poor in the hour of suffering and sickness. His Lordship died on the 2d inst., of typhus fever, which he had caught in his parochial visitations among the poor of his community. Dr. Riddell was third son of the late Ralph Riddell, Esq., of Felton and Horsley, in Northumberland, by Elizabeth, his wife, eldest daughter of Joseph Blount, Esq., and grandson of Thomas Riddell, Esq., of Swinburne Castle, who was engaged with his father in the rising of 1745, and was carried up to London; where, being arraigned for high treason, he pleaded guilty, and experienced the Royal mercy. The family of Riddell is one of high standing and large estate in Northumberland-is of Norman origin, and the name of its patriarch appears on the Roll of Battle Abbey.

Smythe Robert, Esq., of Methven Castle, co. Perth. Recent accounts from Scotland bring the intelligence of the death of this respected gentleman, a great landed proprietor in the county of Perth, and one of its Magistrates and Deputy-Lieutenants. He was son of the late David Smythe, titulary Lord Methven, by Elizabeth, his first wife, only daughter of Sir Robert Murray, Bart., of Hill Head, and represented the ancient family of Smythe of Braco, which was founded by Thomas Smith, a distinguished Physician of his day, and Apothecary to King James III. of Scotland. Traditionally, the Smythes of Methven trace their origin to the famous Clan Chattan, being descended, it is asserted, from Neil Cromb, third son of Murdoch, of that Clan, who flourished in the time of William the Lion. Mr. Robert Smythe, whose death we record, was born 10th Feb., 1778, and married twice. His first wife was Mary, daughter of James Townsend Oswald, Esq., of Dunnekier, co. Fife, and his second, Susan Renton, eldest daughter of Sir Alexander Muir Mackenzie, Bart., but by neither had he any issue. His estates devolve, consequently on his half-brother, William Smythe, Esq., now of Methven Castle. Smithell, Mrs. Elizabeth, late of Hawley
