DEATH OF SIR DAVID WILKIE.—We announce with great regret the death of this celebrated painter, which took place at Gibraltar on the 1st of this month. He was on his return from Egypt, where he had passed some time in examining the venerable ruins of that ancient country—not only with a view to gratify a laudable curiosity, but also to enable him, at some future period, we believe, to lay the result of his labours before the public, but they have been speedily cut short by the hand of death. Sir David was 56 years of age at his death.
