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.

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.

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.

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 Hawleysquare, Margate, 6th Nov.

Walker, Rev. S. F., M.A., Chaplain to the Trinity House, 9th Nov., aged 68. Warrington, Colonel Hanmer, 18th Oct. This gentleman, late her Majesty's Agent and Consul General at Tripoli, died at Patras. His distinguished career in the service of his country extended over the period of full fifty years. In 1795 he received a Cornet's commission in the 1st Dragoon Guards, and accompanied the regiment to Flanders. He afterwards purchased a troop in the 2nd Dragoon Guards, and was thence promoted to the Majority of the 4th Dragoon Guards. Subsequently he obtained the appointment of Inspecting Field Officer to the Carnarvonshire District; and was sent, not long after, by the Duke of York, to assist in organizing the Spanish cavalry under General Balasteros, and in generally aiding the Spanish troops opposed to the French. About the year 1812, Colonel Warrington was selected to represent his sovereign at Tripoli, as Agent and Consul General; and this important post he continued to occupy for thirtyfour years, during which long period no Consul in any part of the world ever carried the name and influence of Great Britain higher than the lamented gentleman whose death we now record. He was honoured with the Guelphic Order, by the King of Hanover, and with that of St. Guiseppe by the Grand Duke of Tuscany. Col. Warrington was born in 1776, the third son of the Rev. Geo. Warrington, rector of Pleasley, co. Derby, by Mary, his wife, dau. and heiress of Henry Strudwyck, Esq. He
married, in 1798, Jane Elizabeth, only dau. of Charles Price, Esq., and has left a large family. His eldest brother, George Henry Warrington, Esq., of Pentrapant, married Mary, eldest dau. and heiress of John Carew, Esq., of Carew Castle, county Pembroke, and Crowcombe, county Somerset, and as.. sumed, in consequence, the name of the ancient family of Carew.

York, The Archbishop of, The Most Reverend Father in God, Edward (Venables Vernon) Harcourt, Lord Archbishop of York, Primate of England, was born on the 10th October, 1757. His Grace was the second son of George, first Lord Vernon, by his third wife, Martha, third dau. of the Hon. Simon Harcourt, and sister of Simon, first Earl of Harcourt. At the age of thirteen, he was sent to Westminster School, whence he removed to
Christ Church, Oxford. Soon after taking orders, he was placed in the family Rectory of Sudbury. He was next appointed a Prebendary of Gloucester, and afterwards Canon of Christ Church, which appointments he retained for many years. In 1791, he became Bishop of Carlisle, and held that Bishopric up to 1807, when, on the death of the Most Rev. Dr. Markham, he was translated to the Archbishopric of York. In the following year, his Grace was made a Privy Councillor; he was also Lord High Almoner to the Queen, a Governor of the Charter House, and of King's College, London; Visitor of Queen's College, Oxford; a Commissioner for Building Churches, and a D.C.L.: he was also, for more than thirty years, one of the Directors of the Ancient Concerts. This vene
rable Prelate was highly respected by all sects and parties. As a religious teacher, his precepts were clear and forcible; and they were fully supported by the practice of his life. His Grace
married, the 5th February, 1784, Anne, third daughter of Granville, first Marquis of Stafford, by whom (who died the 16th Nov. 1832) he had issue ten sons and four daughters, all of whom, except one daughter, survive him. Of these sons, three are dignitaries of the church; two are barristers and members of Parliament; two are colonels in the army; and two are captains in the navy. One daughter is married to Sir John V. B. Johnstone, Bart., M.P., and another is married to Colonel Malcolm. His Grace assumed the name of Harcourt in 1831, on inheriting the estates of the Harcourt family, on the death of Field-Marshal the Earl of Harcourt. The Venerable Archbishop died, on the 5th Nov., at the Palace, Bishopsthorpe, after a short illness, in his ninety-first year.
