At Meaburn, near Appleby, on the 9th instant, Mr. Thomas PALMER, innkeeper, aged 50 years.

At Keswick, on the 2d instant, Mr. Edward BIRKETT, fishing tackle manufacturer, at the great age of 98 years. During the notorious HATFIELD's, (alias Colonel HOPE, of Buttermere Beauty notoriety) stay at Keswick, the individual whose death we have recorded, acted in the capacity of guide and boatman to that worthless character, and was for several days his only companion amongst the mountains and on the lakes during HATFIELD's sojourn in the lake district. Old Neddy was in the habit of relating many anecdotes of the sham Colonel that are not unworthy of being placed upon record, but the following must suffice for our present purpose. On one occasion when Neddy and the Colonel were fishing on Derwent Lake, the life of the latter was placed in extreme jeopardy, having by some mishap fallen out of the boat into deep water, and not being a swimmer would have evidently perished, but for the prompt exertions of his piscatorial companion, who succeeded in pulling him into the boat again. After HATFIELD had recovered from the effects of his sudden and unexpected ducking, Neddy congratulated him upon his escape from drowning, to which HATFIELD replied—"O, never fear! the man that is born to be hung will never be drowned" and we need hardly inform our readers that the former was poor HATFIELD's fate. At the time HATFIELD eluded the pursuit of the officers of justice at Keswick, it was mainly if not entirely owing to Neddy's instrumentality, who conducted him over the Borrowdale mountains, and along such unfrequented paths that he succeeded in setting him at full liberty. His freedom, however, was doomed to be of short duration; he was presently in the hands of justice, and his fate is too well known to call for further remark.

At Keswick, on the 2nd inst., Martha, the wife of Mr. Adam FAIR, aged 58 years.

At Bootle, on Sunday last, after a few days illness, Robert, son of Mr. James METCALF, shoemaker of that place, aged four years.

He is succeeded by his son, Viscount Kelburne, which will cause a vacancy in the representation of Ayrshire.

In Drummond Place, Edinburgh, on Monday week, the 3rd instant, Mrs. SCOTT, aged 37 years, wife of Andrew SCOTT, Esq., writer to the signet, and daughter of William AFFLECK, Esq., of Corkicle, near Whitehaven, much and deservedly esteemed.

The Right Honourable Charles Kendal BUSHE, at one time a distinguished political character in Ireland, when opposed to the legislative union, died on Monday rather suddenly, at Furry Park, near Dublin, the residence of his son. Mr. BUSHE took office under the Liverpool administration, as Solicitor-General, and upon the death of Lord DOWNES, became Chief Justice of the Queen's Bench. Soon after the formation of the present ministry, he retired upon a superannuation, and was succeeded by the present Chief Justice, Mr. PENNEFATHER. Mr. BUSHE had been half a century at the bar, having been called in 1793. He had reached his 76th year.

The celebrated Field-Marshal Count WITTGENSTEIN, died at St. Petersburg on the 16th ultimo, at the advanced age of 87. He was, as will be remembered, Commander-in-chief of the Russian armies during nearly the whole of the late French war, and enjoyed the confidence of the late Emperor Alexander, perhaps, in a higher degree than any other of that monarch's ministers or warriors. The Emperor, upon being informed of it, gave immediate orders that the whole Russian army should wear mourning for three days.
