Beckett, the Rt. Hon. Sir John, Bart. aged 73, 31st May. Sir John was the eldest son of Sir John Beckett, Bart. of Somerby Park, co. Lincoln, and grandson, mater. nally, of Dr. Wilson, Bishop of Bristol. He received his education at Trinity College, Cambridge, and there greatly distinguished himself, taking a wrangler's degree in 1795. His first return to Parliament was by the Borough of Cockermouth, in 1820. He subsequently sat for Haslemere, and, finally, represented the populous town of Leeds. In the Duke of Wellington's administration he held the appointments of Judge-Marshal and Advocate-General; and during Sir Robert Peel's short-lived Ministry of 1834 resumed those offices. Politically, he adhered with firmness to Tory principles, and voted against the Reform Bill, the Municipal Corporation Bill, and the Irish Tithe Measure. He had been a Privy Councillor since 1817. Sir John Beckett married in that year Lady Anne Lowther, daughter of William, Earl of Lonsdale, K.G. but has died without issue; the title devolving on his brother, now Sir Thomas Beckett, Bart, the eminent banker of Leeds.

Colonel of the 72nd Highlanders, and late Governor of Ceylon, after an illness of only three days, in King street, St. James's, 13th June. This distinguished officer was fifth son of John Campbell, Esq. of Melfort, in Argyllshire, and brother of the late Admiral Sir Patrick Campbell. He was born in 1777, and joined the army in 1799, when he almost immediately entered on the active duties of his profession. His gallantry in the Peninsula soon won for him the notice of his illustrious Commander, and his name and exploits occupy no inglorious space in the official despatches. For a considerable time he held the appointments of Assistant-Adjutant-General and Assistant-Quartermaster-General; and for his eminent services at Talavera, Busaço, Fuentes d'Onor, Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria, the Pyrenees, Nivelle, Nives and Toulouse, he received a Cross and Six Clasps. At the consummating victory of Waterloo, Colonel Campbell commanded the Royal Scots and so conspicuous was his conduct on that memorable occasion, that the officers of the regiment testified their admiration by the presentation of a sword valued at seventy guineas, and the Sovereign conferred, in recompense, the insignia of the Bath. Sir Colin was also invested with the orders of Maria Theresa, St. George, the Tower and Sword, and Maximilian Joseph of Bavaria. Subsequently, after acting for several years as Lieutenant-Governor of Portsmouth, and holding the command

of the South-West District, he was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia, and finally, in 1840, made Governor of Ceylon, in which island he remained until the recent appointment of Lord Torrington. In 1836 he became Colonel of the 72nd Highlanders, and in 1838 reached the rank of Lieut. General. At the period of his decease, Sir Colin Campbell had just completed his 70th year. He married Miss Harden, dau. of Henry Harden, Esq. but was left a widower in 1838, with three sons and three daughters: the former are Col. Fitzroy Camphell; Lieut. A. Campbell, Aide-de-Camp to Sir Charles Napier in India; and Capt. F. Campbell, R.N. Of the daughters, the eldest, Maria Louisa, married first to Hon. C. F. Norton, and second, to the Hon. Edmund Phipps.

water Treatise," and his "Lectures on the Romans." Altogether his published works form twenty-five (volumes: their circulation has been very large. In 1843 the Doctor resigned his Professorship in the University, and became Principal of the New College. The death of Dr. Chalmers was very sudden. He was found on the morning of the 31st ult. dead in his bed, to which he had retired the previous night in apparent health. As the intellectual leader of the Free Church of Scotland, as an able writer and preacher, and as one of the best of good men, Dr. Chalmers leaves behind him an undying reputation. The spiritual and earthly welfare of all men was the mainspring of his thoughts and actions. His love and care extended to every class, but his heart was chiefly with the poor of his people. He devoted his great and comprehensive powers to their enfranchisement from sin and suffering. Under his influence, virtue and happiness have become the inmates of many, many cottage homes in Scotland. Chandler, William Botsford, Esq barrister at law, eldest son of the Hon. E. B.

Capher, the Rev. George, Vicar of Wher-

Chalmers, the Rev. Thomas, D.D. This
eminent divine was born in 1776, and
towards the beginning of the present cen-
tury he commenced his distinguished
theological career as Minister in the parish
of Kilmany, in Fifeshire. He remained
there for twelve years, and was translated
to the Tron Church of Glasgow in 1815.
During this time he produced his work
on Natural Theology, and his "Sketches
of Moral and Mental Philosophy." His
"Evidences of the Christian Revelation"
were originally published in the "Ency-
clopædia Britannica," under the manage-
ment of Dr. Brewster. In Glasgow his
astronomical and commercial discourses,
so sensible, so profound, and so Christian,
proved of incalculable benefit to the moral
and social improvement of his fellow
citizens-aye, and to many thousands of
his fellow men, both in and out of Scot-
land. His work on the civic and Christian
economy of large towns is of inestimable
value. In 1823 Dr. Chalmers accepted
the Chair of Moral Philosophy in the
New College of St. Andrew's, where he
remained until 1828, when he received
the appointment of Theological Professor
in the University of Edinburgh. From
the period of his settlement at St. Andrew's
until his removal to Edinburgh, he pub-
lished his works on " Endowments," and
on Political Economy," his "Bridge-
