On Wednesday, the 14th inst., Thomas TOLSON, of Ropery House, near Maryport, in his 90th year, sincerely and deeply lamented. He was rich in years and more so in piety, probity, uprightness, benevolence, and real charity. His paternal affections were remarkably strong and conspicuous throughout his long and useful life. The poor have lost in him a kind and generous benefactor, being ever ready to relieve their distresses; and those who enjoyed the privilege of his society, and were intimately acquainted with him, an irretrievable loss. He was also a liberal subscriber to bible, missionary, and other societies which had for their object the advancement of true religion and piety, and the real and substantial interests of mankind; and it may be truly added, that he was one of the noblest works of God.

At Egremont, on Saturday last, Mrs. Jane CURWEN, a maiden lady, aged 83 years. The deceased was an excellent and ingenious sempstress, and produced many curious pieces of fancy needle work, to which she had the art of giving the appearance of well-finished printings.
 
At Newton, in Gosforth, on Wednesday week, whilst on a visit, Mr. Hartley, of Church House, in Eskdale, aged 73.
 
At Wasdale Head, on Friday last, in the parish of St. Bees, Mr. Miles STRICKLAND, of that place, in an advanced age.

At Elmore Hall, Durham, on the 15th inst, in his 85th year, George BAKER, Esq., a gentleman who had long occupied a distinguished position in the county of Durham. As a politician he was an active, zealous, and consistent refomer, and was, we believe, the oldest advocate of the liberal cause in the district. Mr. BAKER served the office of High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1815.
 
At Mill-hill, parish of Dryfesdale, on Saturday, the 13th curt., after a lingering illness, Mr. James JOHNSTONE. He possessed extraordinary talents for music, and was allowed by judges to be the best performer on the violin in the south of Scotland.
 
On Wednesday morning last, in the 58th year of his age, Mr. John FALLOWFIELD, druggist, and one of the Town Council of Preston. The event took place rather suddenly, and up to a short time previous to his demise, his numerous friends had hoped that such dispensation would have been spared until he had advanced much farther into the “the sear and yellow leaf.” It may be safely said, that while his memory lives, his like will ne’er be seen again. His foibles were many, but his excellent qualities covered them; and though he was a determined supporter of his principles, and advocated them openly, no one ever suffered less in the estimation of his adversaries. His integrity was great, and as a tradesman he was respected. In private life, a large circle of his townsmen will long bear testimony to his contributing much more than his quota on any mirthful occasion, yet at the same time he ever sought—
                    “to warn the frolic, and instruct the gay.”
More may not be said, except that he lived respected and died universally regretted.—Preston Observer. He was brother of Jonathan FALLOWFIELD, Esq., of Brisco Hill, near this city.
