DEATH OF THOMAS CAMPBELL, ESQ., AUTHOR OF "THE PLEASURES OF HOPE."—It is with sincere regret we announce the death of this amiable man, and celebrated and accomplished poet, which took place on Saturday last at Boulogne-sur-Mer, whither he had retired for the benefit of his health. Mr. CAMPBELL, we believe, was in his sixty-fourth year, and was a native of Glasgow. In early life he occupied the situation of tutor in private family, residing on the sea coast of the island of Mull, and while there planned, and partly executed, his celebrated poem "The pleasures of Hope." Mr. CAMPBELL afterwards removed to Edinburgh, and again, after a short interval, to London. He settled at Sydenham, and devoted himself to literature. The success of his poem, "The Pleasures of Hope," procured him admission into the most intellectual society of London, and he was universally recognised as one of the brightest stars in that bright galaxy of poets who shed a lustre on the first quarter of the present century.
