DEATH OF LORD ABERCROMBY.-We regret to announce the death of this amiable and venerable nobleman, which took place at Airthrey

Castle, on Wednesday forenoon. His lordship, who was in his 74th year, had been long in a very infirm state of health. He was eldest

son of the celebrated General Sir Ralph ABERCROMBY, and brother of Lord Dunfermline. Lord ABERCROMBY has left one son, Colonel

ABERCROMBY, lord-lieutenant of Clackmannanshire, and late M.P. for the county of Stirling, and two daughters, the eldest of whom is

married to the Right Hon. Fox MAULE. By Lord ABERCROMBY's death, the lord-lieutenancy of Stirlingshire becomes vacant.
