 We regret to announce the death of Mrs. KERR, wife of Mr. F. J. KERR, Queen Street, Whitehaven, which took place on Friday, after an illness of about three weeks duration.

 The deceased lady was of an amiable disposition, and her death has evoked widespread regret and sympathy for Mr. KERR. She was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. Jeremiah KENDAL, who was for many years Clerk of Trinity Church, Whitehaven.

 Mr. KERR is well known in shipping circles, being the local agent for the Hinde Line of Steamers, and a member of the Harbour Commission, and on the sad event becoming known the flag at the Harbour Office and those of the shipping in the Harbour flew at half mast. The interment took place on Tuesday and was exceedingly largely attended.
