DEATH OF THE DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM.—The decease of this nobleman took place on Thursday morning, at eight o'clock, at Stowe. The melancholy intelligence reached London by an express, which arrived at the house of the Marquis of Chandos, Pall mall, in the course of the afternoon. The noble Marquis (now Duke of Buckingham) had been at Stowe for some days prior to his noble father's illness. The deceased, Richard TEMPLE NUGENT BRYDGES CHANDOS GRENVILLE, Duke and Marquis of Buckingham and Chandos, Earl Temple, Earl Temple of Stowe, and Viscount and Baron Cobham, of Kent, in the Peerage of the United Kingdom, Earl Nugent in Ireland, K.G. and P.C., Lord Lieutenant and Custus Rotulorum of the county of Bucks, Colonel of the Buckinghamshire Militia, D.C.L, and F.S.A., was born on the 20th of March, 1776, succeeded to the Marquisite on the 11th of February, 1813, married on the 16th of April, 1796, Lady Anne Elizabeth BRYDGES, daughter and heir of James, third and last Duke of Chandos, and co-heir with the Marquis TOWNSHEND, of the Barony of Bourchier. By her Grace, who was born on the 27th of October, 1779, and died on the 16th of May, 1836, the Duke had issue, Richard Plantagenet, Marquis of Chandos, who succeeds to the family titles and estates. His Grace, the present Duke, was born on the 11th of February, 1797, and married on the 13th of May, 1810, Lady Mary CAMPBELL, second daughter of John, first Marquis of Breadalbane, who was born on the 10th of July, 1795. The issue of this marriage is, first, Lady Anna Eliza Mary, born on the 7th of February, 1820, and second, Richard Plantagenet Campbell, Earl Temple (now Marquis of Chandos), born on the 10th of September, 1823. By the death of the Duke of Buckingham, the Lord-Lieutenancy of Buckinghamshire, and a seat in the House of Commons for that county become vacant. The late Duke of Buckingham was formerly a great collector of etchings, and he is known to have possessed some of the very rarest specimens by Rembrant [sic]. These were sold by auction a few years ago, and produced a very large sum of money, though not so much as the noble owner had given for them. The Duke's general collection of engravings, if we mistake not, was sold at the same time. lt was known that these sacrifices were made to relieve accidental and temporary embarrassments.
