Straight-forward, consistent, and honest, his conduct through life acquired for him the respect and esteem of all who knew him.

DEATH OF THE DUKE OF CLEVELAND.—It is our painful duty to record the death of his Grace the Duke of Cleveland, which took place on Saturday morning at seven o'clock, at his residence in St. James's Square. The late nobleman, who had been for some time suffering from severe illness, was Duke and Marquess of Cleveland, Earl of Darlington, Viscount and Baron Barnard, of Barnard's Castle, and Baron Raby, of Raby Castle, county Durham; he was also Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of Durham, and Vice-Admiral of the Coast of Durham, and Colonel of the Durham Militia. He was born July 27, 1760, and was consequently in his 76th year. He succeeded to the earldom in September, 1792, having previously married Lady Katherine POWLETT, second daughter and co-heiress of Harry, sixth and last Duke of Bolton, and co-heir of one moiety of the Barony of St. John of Basing; this lady died in 1807, six years after which the late duke married Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. Robert RUSSELL. His grace had no issue by the second marriage, but by his first he has left surviving a family of six children. He is succeeded by his eldest son, the Earl of Darlington, member for South Salop, in the representation of which his accession to the peerage consequently creates a vacancy. The present duke, who is a Tory in politics, contrary to the principles uniformly and warmly professed by his predecessor, was born in 1788, and married, when in his twenty-second year, Lady Sophia, eldest daughter of John, fourth Earl of Powlett, who is three years older than himself. They have no family. The brothers and sisters of the present duke are Lord William POWLETT, Lady Augusta MILBANKE, Lady Louisa MEYRICK, Lady Arabella ARDEN, and Lord Henry VANE, M.P., whose principles assimilate with those of his lamented parent. The barony of Barnard has been in the family since 1699; the dukedom was conferred in 1833.

DEATH OF JOHN SMITH, ESQ., OF DALE PARK.—This eminent banker, who died on Tuesday week, at his seat in Sussex, in his 75th year, was brother to the late, and uncle to the present Lord Carrington. He formerly represented Midhurst and the county of Sussex in Parliament, and has died extremely wealthy. The bulk of his large fortune goes to J. A. SMITH, Esq., M.P., of Belgrave Square, his eldest son, who is married to a daughter of Sir Samuel C. JERVOISE, Bart.

DEATH OF MR. DAVIDGE.— This well-known actor died on Monday last, of a cancerous affection, under which he laboured for the last six months.

Count PELET, (de la Lozere,) Peer of France, and Grand Officer of the Legion of Honour, died at Paris on Wednesday week, in his 83rd year.
