SUDDEN DEATH OF MR. GEORGE CLARK, THE SCULPTOR.—The death of Mr. CLARK, who was eminent in his profession, took place at Birmingham, in a very sudden manner, on Saturday morning last.

At the time of his death he was engaged in casting the leaves that were to form the foliage of the capital for the NELSON monument in Trafalgar-square, and had finished the two first. He is best known by his statue of Major CARTWRIGHT in Burton-crescent.
THE LATE MR. GRANT, OF MANCHESTER.—Died, on Monday, the 28th of February, at Springside, near Manchester, Mr. William GRANT, of the well-known firm of GRANT and Brothers, Manchester, at the advanced age of seventy-three years. The benevolence of this gentleman has been rendered interesting to the public by the pen of Mr. DICKENS, who has depicted him, in conjunction with his brother, under the character of the "Brothers Cheeryble." Mr. GRANT was a native of the north of Scotland, but, having settled in early life in Lancashire, he engaged with his brothers in the cotton trade, and, after a long course of successful industry, realised a very ample fortune. His death will be deeply regretted by the wide circle of his acquaintance, for, in the words of Mr. DICKENS, "The liberal charity of the brothers, their singleness of heart, their noble nature, and their unbounded benevolence, are no creation of the author's brain, but are prompting every day, and oftenest by stealth, some munificent and generous deed, in that town of which they are the pride and honour."
DEATH OF MR. KIRKMAN FINLAY.—We deeply regret to announce that Mr. Kirkman FINLAY, of Castle Toward, expired on Friday morning week, at his residence, Argyleshire. Mr. FINLAY was a native of Glasgow, and long looked up to in this city as one of her first merchants. His knowledge of business was profound, and his stirling good sense, enlightened views, and general accomplishments, secured him a seat in Parliament for this city and the other burghs. At the time this honour was conferred, viz., in 1812, Mr. FINLAY was Lord Provost. The deceased was in the 70th year of his age.—Glasgow Constitutional.
DEATH OF THE GRAND DUKE OF MECKLENBURGH SCHWERIN.—His Royal Highness the Grand Duke of Mecklenburgh, after an illness of several days, died on the 7th instant, in the 42nd year of his age. He is succeeded by his son Frederick Francis, born Feb. 28, 1823.
