DEATHS in the year 1821. January. The countess dowager of Lincoln, sister to the marquis of Hertford, and mother of the late viscountess Folkestone.

She was 50 years a widow, has left 2

In one of Dovy's alms-houses, Exeter, Mary Heath, aged 100; six months after the death of her sister, Elizabeth Heath, in the same house, aged 103. After thirty-two hours of extreme suffering, a young man in the service of R. Sheriffe, esq. of Diss, Norfolk. His death is believed to have arisen from assisting in cleaning the wound of a spaniel which had been bitten by a terrier; —the terrier having been bitten by a mad dog in the preceding August, and died mad a month ago. This case shews what care is required by persons who may by an accident have this poison applied to any part of the surface of the body. It is not necessary that a person should be actually bit by a rabid animal to receive the infection, nor that there should be any abrasion of the skin of the part upon which matter may have been deposited; its simple application upon any sound part would seem sufficient to produce the disease. At Bath, of second attack of the small por, Samuel Hillar: he had been inoculated nineteen years before, and was slightly pitted. At Hastings, the right honourable Frances Cairness, countess of Clermont, relict of W. Henry, the late and last earl of Clermont, and daughter of the late colonel James Murray, by the dowager lady Blayney.

D. rector of lickling, and of Bircholt, in Kent, and many years senior tu or of Queens College, Cam'rodore. At Holy rood-house, at 78 years of ago, the right honourable lady Elizaveth Murray. Mr. Donald M*Nicol at Inverary, in the prime of life. His remarks on Dr. Johnson's Journey to the Hebrides are well knowfi : like his father, he was a supporter and a judge of the Gaelic language. In York-street, Portman-square, lieutenant-general W. Popham, at the advanced age of 81. The military career of this excellent man commenced, in the year 1757, as ensign; and, in 1759, retaining his rank in the king's service, he passed into that of the East India Company, where he acquired the highest panegyric from the most eminent commanders, as well as governors of India. He survived i. brother, sir Home Popham, only six months. William Parneil, esq., M. P. of Avondale, in the county of Wicklow. In private society he was remarked for the amiableness of his manners and for the suavity and intelligence of his conversation. Mr. Parnell deservedly ranked high, in letters and in politics, for his general acquirements, but more especially for his writings. “The Causes of popular Discontents in Ireland," and “The Apology for the Catholics,” are works which have been greatly esteemed by persons of judgment,

for their elegance of style, the statesmanlike principles they enforce, and the sure patriotism of the author. Had Mr. Parnell lived, the attention which he was in the habit of giving in parliament to Irish affairs, would have been productive, ere long, of lasting benefits to his country. Time only was wanting to enable him to give effect to those plans, which had been his constant study from his earliest years, for relieving Ireland from her grievances, and for ameliorating the condition of all classes of her people in wealth, in manners, and in morals. He was distinguished by a manly independence of principle, and an ardent zeal for the public good. Men of all parties in parliament must agree in bearing witness to the integrity of his conduct, and to the purity of the motives which actuated him in public life. On the 3d Mr. Hamilton of Sundrum, N. B. in the 82d year of his age. Few persons have been more distinguished than Mr. Hamilton, for the united qualities of head and heart. He had been blessed with an excellent education; and was often accustomed to speak with fondness and reverence of the celebrated Adam Smith, whose lectures and friendship he had enjoyed. Several of his associates in youth became afterwards distinguished men; and with one of them, the late lord Melville, in particular, he was in habits of confidential intercourse and friendship. Mr. Hamilton united to excellent talents, and to manners most refined, the most quick and exquisite moral sensibility. He blended together high spirit with courtesy, and o a

all the kindest charities of our nature. To his tenants he was uniformly friendly and liberal; to the poor his bounty approached to prodigality. It was difficult to say whether he himself, or the wandering mendicants, seemed to rejoice most to meet each other; and superior in charity to the good pastor of Goldsmith, he did not even “chide their wanderings,” while he “relieved their pain.” Till he had reached his 80th year, Mr. Hamilton had enjoyed good health, and (like his brother-in-law, the late lord Eglinton) all the energy of youth. His infirmities during the last year induced him to resign the honourable situation of convener of the county, which he held for thirty-six years, and to which he had given great dignity by his talents, munificence, and public spirit. At a meeting held at Ayr, May 15, 1820, “to consider and answer a letter from him, resigning the situation,” the earl of Glasgow observed, “that no man who was acquainted with the virtues and talents of the excellent person who had now finally withdrawn himself from the public service of the county, but must feel deeply affected on the occasion.” On the 7th, after a lingering illness, which she bore with great patience, Mrs. John Hunter, widow of the celebrated surgeon, in the 79th year of her age. She was an authoress of distinguished merit. Her verses “On November 1784;” the beautiful address to Fancy, under the title of “La Douce Chimère,” with several of her miscellaneous poems, shew that she possessed the feeling and imagination of genius. In appre

ciating her merits as a lyric poet, says one well able to describe her excellencies, “we ought to recollect how few songs, before her time, were to be found in the English language, that were worthy of being sung by the cultivated and refined, or were truly expressive of the pathetic melodies to which they were joined. The cruelty of Delia, receiving a rose-bud or presenting a nosegay to the fair idol, complimentary gallantry or the silly courtship of imaginary shepherds, were the usual subjects of our politer popular songs; though a few of superior excellence might indeed be discovered, like rare jewels, closed up in the volumes of our classical poets. Mrs. Hunter had the good taste, the good sense and feeling, to strike into a better path, and to take deep and tender feeling, as arising from some implied situation of passion or distress, for the subject of her verses. The superiority of this refinement was immediately felt; and the first of her songs that were known to the public—“The Son of Alknomook,” “Queen Mary's Lament,” &c. became exceedingly popular. They had also one great advantage to the singer and the listener, that, as the love of music had first induced the author to write in verse, no word was admitted into her measure, which conveyed any harshness to a musical ear, or was in the least

degree at variance with the air. This good path she pursued; but contemporaries soon arose, whose lyrical works more than shared with her the public favour; and her volume of songs and poems, published many years after they were written, was less attractive
