DEATH OF MR. FRASER.—The publisher of Frazer's Magazine died on Saturday last, after a protracted illness, brought on, as it is supposed, by the attack of Mr. G. BERKELEY. Literature has thus lost an earnest supporter, literary men a generous patron, and a large circle of friends one beloved as a very brother. It is often true that an intimate acquaintance, by unveiling defects of character, weakens the reverence, respect, and esteem first felt. This did not apply to Mr. FRASER. One learned slowly but surely to love him, and they who knew him best loved him most. His fine taste, his ardent attachment to literary pursuits, and his sacrifices in the service he loved, endeared him to the most distinguished literati of the age. His unfeigned faith, humility, and true Christian conduct, exemplified in public life, and yet more richly developed on a death-bed, showed that the loss of many is indeed the gain of one.—Times.

We regret to learn that information has been received in town stating the death of M. LAPORTE, the active and enterprising manager of the Italian Opera. His death is stated to have taken place at Corbeil, near Paris, on Saturday morning, at five minutes to one, from apoplexy. M. DUBOURG, of the Haymarket, was with him when he died, and has communicated the account of the melancholy occurrence to London.
