Deaths.   [continued]

DEATH OF LORD WM. MONTAGUE.—On Friday last the melancholy intelligence of the death of the above nobleman was received by the family connections from Italy. His Lordship expired on Wednesday, the 30th ult., at Florence, where he was sojourning with his lady on a visit to his father, the Duke of Manchester, and Lord and Lady Mandeville. The deceased lord, who was second son of the Duke of Manchester, and brother of the Marchioness of Tweeddale, was born the 5th of August, 1800, and married, April, 1830, Miss Emily DUPRE.

SUDDEN DEATH OF LADY CAMPBELL.—Her Ladyship expired suddenly on Tuesday evening of an attack of apoplexy, at the residence of Sir Robert, in the King's-road, Brighton, in her 62nd year. Her ladyship was daughter of Gilbert PASLEY, M.D., physician-general of Madras, and married Sir Robert CAMPBELL, director of the East India Company in 1798, and has left issue, Sir Robert CAMPBELL, late charge d'affaires at Persia, and other children.

DEATH OF THE BISHOP OF DROMORE.—The Venerable Dr. SAURIN, Lord Bishop of Dromore and brother of the late Right Hon. William SAURIN, expired on Saturday evening, at Kingstown, near Dublin. The deceased prelate was the oldest member of the hierarchy, and was esteemed, throughout a life longer than usually falls to the lot of man, as an exemplary and pious divine. Dromore is one of the suppressed bishoprics, and the diocese will be united to that of Armagh. Dr. SAURIN was in the 83rd year of his age, having been born in 1759; he was ordained in 1781; and after having successively filled the Deanery of Cork, the Archdeaconry of Dublin, and the Deanery of Derry, was elevated in 1819 to the Bishopric of Dromore.

DEATH OF SIR JOHN MEADE, K. H.—Sir John died at Bath, on Saturday last, in his 69th year. He entered the medical department of the army in 1795; served at the capture of Trinidad, in the expedition to Porto Rico, in Egypt and South America, and in the Peninsular from 1807 to 1810; was appointed Deputy-Inspector-General of Army Hospitals in 1810; received the honour of knighthood in 1806.

DEATH OF SIR FRANCIS BRIAN HILL.—We have to announce the decease of this gallant officer, brother to Lord HILL, general commanding in chief, on Monday last, at Preston-house, near Shrewsbury, in his 64th year. He served with distinction in Portugal, and was honoured with the decoration of the tower and the sword by the late King of Portugal. He was the third son of the late Sir John HILL, Bart., M.P., and uncle to the present Sir Rowland HILL, Bart., M.P. He married first, 22nd April, 1904, Jemima, daughter of C. FALBE, Esq., who died in 1806; and secondly, 6th October, 1819, Emily LISSEY, daughter of the late J. T. POWYS, Esq., and has left issue by both marriages.

DEATH OF CONOLLY, THE JOCKEY.—We regret to announce the death of this celebrated jockey. Ever since his fall at Oxford, in August, 1840, his existence was marked by sufferings of a most painful and distressing nature; and although he occasionally appeared to rally, yet it was only to experience relapses of increased severity. He expired on Saturday morning at four o'clock, aged 35. It appears that, at the age of 13, being in the service of Mr. PRENDERGAST, and under the care of the well-known William CLEARY, that gentleman's trainer, he made his debut as a jockey on the Curragh of Kildare, his first race being on Jemmy Gray for a Handicap, Peel course, on which occasion he weighed 3st 9½lb! In the following year, 1821, he came over to England with Mr. PRENDERGAST, and went with his stud to Newmarket, but soon after his arrival there, Mr. PRENDERGAST wrote to Mr. CLEARY "to bring the horses up to London," which he did, and CONOLLY accompanied him. The horses were afterwards disposed of in various ways. The question being put as to what should be done with the "little jockey," it was proposed by Mr. PRENDERGAST that he should be taken into the house to fill a menial situation then vacant. At this the warm-hearted CLEARY, to use his own expression, "burst into a blaze," and he repelled the offer with a generous indignation. The next morning he returned to Newmarket, and on his arrival he "made a present of CONOLLY," as he himself described the act, to Mr. H. NEALE for two years and a half. In 1823, NEALE put him on Lord Verulam's Vaurien, for the Chelmsford cup, which he had the good fortune to win; and, from that time to the hour of his death, CONOLLY found a most kind and liberal patron in his Lordship. It will be recollected that CONOLLY was riding Lord Verulam's Albert, by Waterloo or Moses, out of Vroennes, in a trial at Newmarket, when life became so instantaneously extinct, that, as CONOLLY said, "Albert was dead while yet he was in his stride!" In the midway of his career, CONOLLY was "put on" the most celebrated horses, and such was his success, that he appeared to "farm" all the great stakes for the use and behoof of his employers. He won Derby, Oaks, and Leger—the first Eclipse Foot at Ascot, on Priam, and the Goodwood Cup, two years following, on the same horse. In 1834, he was selected by Mr. BATSON to ride Plenipotentiary for the Derby, which he won; Shillelah being second, Glencoe third. His conduct, on that occasion, and the "treatment" which he subsequently received on the "Leger account," placed his character in a more honourable light than ever. Six years ago he married Elizabeth, the eldest daughter of Mr. BOYCE, of Newmarket, and has left a widow and three children.
