DEATH OF LIEUTENANT-GENERAL SIR LIONEL SMITH.—Advices from the Mauritius to the 9th of January were received on Saturday at the North and South American Coffee-house, by which we regret to learn the death of his Excellency Lieutenant-General Sir Lionel SMITH, governor of that island. His Excellency was taken ill on the 31st of December, at his country house, at Rednit, and expired suddenly on the 3rd of January, of hydrothorax, or effusion of water on the chest. His Excellency was in the 64th year of his age. He arrived there in July, 1840, so that the term of his administration of the affairs of that island was limited to a period of little more than 17 months. He is replaced temporarily in the government of that island by Colonel W. STAVELEY, C.B., the senior officer next in command, and late commandant of the garrison. In the baronetcy Sir Lionel is succeeded by his only son, Lionel SMITH, a youth of only nine years of age.
