DEATH OF THE BISHOP OF CHICHESTER.—It is with feelings of unaffected regret we have to announce the death of Philip Nicholas SHUTTLEWORTH, Bishop of Chichester. His demise took place at the episcopal palace, on Friday night, at half-past ten o'clock. The remote cause of death is not known; no serious apprehensions were entertained by his family up to within half an hour of his death. He had been unwell a few days only. His lordship was in his 61st year, and universally beloved. Dr. SHUTTLEWORTH, who was Warden of New College, Oxford, was gazetted to the bishopric on the 8th Sept., 1840, on the demise of the lamented Bishop OTTER.—Sussex Adv.

THE LAST OF THE DERWENTWATERS.—On Tuesday last the rev. gentleman left Acton Burnell at an early hour, and on his arrival at Harley, two miles from Wenlock, about nine o'clock, two cottagers saw him passing down the road, when he suddenly staggered and fell to the ground in a fit of apoplexy. They hastened to his assistance, and lifted him up; but after breathing several heavy sighs he expired. The body was removed to Acton Burnell the same day, and will be interred in the chapel to-morrow. The deceased was in his 70th year. He was a student at Douay College, when the horrors of the French revolution compelled the inmates of that seminary to fly from France, and seek a shelter under the hospitable roofs of the wealthy members of the Catholic faith in Great Britain and other countries. He arrived at Acton Burnell, the seat of Sir Edward SMYTHE, with other refugees, in 1793, where he remained up to the time of his death; and during the last 26 years officiated as domestic chaplain to the family. He was the last descendant of the house of Derwentwater, which suffered so much in property and life for their adherence to the cause of the STUARTs.—Shrewsbury Chronicle.
