On Thursday week, at his seat near Ballinasloe, of typhus fever, which he took at the bedside of a poor parishioner, the venerable William Le Poer TRENCH, Archdeacon of Ardagh. He was, I believe, the last surviving brother of the late Archbishop of Tuam, and was well known in the connty of Galway by his efficiency as a magistrate, and his zeal as a Calvinistic minister of the Church establishment. He had all the stern intolerance of that party, but was much and deservedly respected on account of his sincerity, and of the purity and active benevolencc of his life. His earlier years were spent in the army; and when he afterwards became a conspicuous and able supporter of the Kildare-street and Biole Societies, those who opposed the dissemmination [sic] of the scriptures through those institutions, taunted him with great virulence, in public speeches and paragraphs, on account of his alleged juvenile indiscretions and delinquencies. The notorious Æneas M'DONELL was among the most inveterate of his assailants, going about from town to town in the west of Ireland for no other purpose, as it seemed, than to revile the TRENCH family, and to rip up old stories, not over decent nor very well authenticated, of Archdeacon—or, as he styled him—Adjutant TRENCH. For one of those inflammatory harangues the Court of King's Bench sent the learned gentleman to Kilmaintram [sic – should be Kilmainham] gaol, but he was let out before the term of his sentence was half expired, by Lord Anglesey, whose misplaced clemency on that occaison excited as great a clamour among the Tories, and provoked paragraphs in their journals as biting as any that Æneas himself has since indited upon the "gaol deliveries" of Lord Normanby. The death of Archdeacon TRENCH will be long lamented by the poor in the neighbourhood where he resided, and by the clergy throughout the dioceses of Tuam and Ardagh. His archdeaconry is in the gift of the Bishop of Kilmore, and his other preferment in that ot the Bishop of Tuam. He was also Vicar-General of the diocese of Clonfort.—Chronicle Correspondent.
