DR. TAYLOR.—Died, on the 4th inst., in Larne, at the house of his brother-in-law, the Rev. James SMITH, Rector of Island Magee, after a long illness, John TAYLOR, Esq., of Blackhouse, Ayrshire. In the above simple intimation—which it would seem singular in us to pass unnoticed—will be recognised an individual who, under the professional designation of "Dr. TAYLOR," occupied, for many years, a large space in the public eye. Latterly, in declining health, he retired to the North of Ireland, where, in the society of near and attached relatives, he enjoyed that tranquility in which he had been long a stranger, and devoted himself closely to profitable study and reflection. Nothing, says an eye witness, could exceed the calmness and serenity of his mind in his latter moments; while, claiming that forgiveness he freely extended to all mankind, his last whisper was a hope of salvation through the Redeemer's merits.—Ayr Advertiser.

Near Bushmills, county Antrim, at an advanced age, Alex. M'MULLAH, locally called "Alick M'COCK."

At Stewartstown, county Tyrone, in her 103rd year, Catherine REYNOLDS. Within the last three years she was able to read without spectacles.
