DEATH OF ADMIRAL SIR JOHN WELLS.—This gallant naval officer died on Friday, the 19th ult., at Belnore, his residence, near Cuckfield, Sussex, at the advanced age of 78 years. He had been in the navy upwards of sixty-five years, for his commission as Lieutenant is dated as far back as 1779. When Captain he was appointed, in 1797, to the Lancaster, of sixty-four, and, under Lord DUNCAN, contributed to the defeat of the Dutch fleet, commanded by Admiral DE WINTER, and, for his eminent services on that occasion (the victory of Camperdown,) he received the distinction of a medal. In October, 1834, he was nominated a Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath. His commission was dated as follows:—Lieutenant, the 22nd of July, 1779; Commander, the 1st of June, 1782; Captain, the 1st of March, 1783; Rear-Admiral, the 9th of November, 1805; Vice-Admiral, the 31st of July, 1810; and Admiral, the 19th of July, 1821: being, with the exception of Sir Charles E. NUGENT, Sir J. H. WHITSHED, and Admirals AYLMER, and W. WOLSELY, the senior Admiral in the British service.

DEATH OF THE EARL OF HAREWOOD.—The Earl of Harewood died suddenly, on Wednesday evening, the 24th ult., near Tadcaster. He had been out hunting, and returning home, he complained of feeling indisposed, and staid behind the party. He was missed; and within ten minutes after, he was found lying by the road-side, in a lifeless state—he never spoke afterwards. The immediate cause of death has been supposed to be a rupture of the bladder; and the evidence at an inquest, which was held on the body on Thursday, tended to strengthen the impression that something of the kind had taken place; but the surgeon who was called in expressed an opinion that a blood-vessel at the base of the brain had been ruptured. Lord Harewood was in his seventy-fourth year, having been born in 1767. In 1794, he married Henrietta, eldest daughter of the late Sir John Saunder SEBRIGHT; who died in February, 1840. He has left a large family: his eldest son, Viscount LASCELLES, succeeds to the Earldom in his forty-sixth year. The Lord-Lieutenancy of the West Riding of Yorkshire is vacated by this death.
