DEATH OF JOHN LAMBTON, ESQ.—This melancholy, but, for some years past, not unexpected event, took place at Morton House, on the morning of Monday, the 29th ult. Mr. LAMBTON attained the age of 76, on the 25th of May last. The accident which he received in the hunting-field, on the 15th of March, 1838, had caused his confinement to the house, with partial reliefs of carriage-exercise, and the occasional enjoyment of the air in his garden chair, from that time up to his demise. His sufferings, of varied acuteness, during that long period, were borne with unshrinking fortitude and resignation. Mr. LAMBTON was second son of the late General LAMBTON, by his marriage with Susan, daughter of Thomas LYON, Earl of Strathmore, and was consequently uncle of the first Earl of Durham, and of the present Mr. William Henry LAMBTON, the Liberal member for North Durham. He was beloved by his relatives; and it is no exaggeration to state that he was almost venerated by all classes of persons in this county. From the death of his elder brother, Mr. William Henry LAMBTON, he assumed the mastership of the celebrated Lambton fox-hounds, which he continued to hold until 1838—having for many years furnished this noblest of all the sports of the field to the county at his own expense—when the injury he sustained, and his subsequent severe affliction, led him, though most reluctantly, on the recommendation of his friends, to give up the pack; which thereupon passed into the hands of Lord Suffield, and ultimately became the property of Mr. ROBERTSON, and are still, we believe, kept in North Durham. Under Mr. LAMBTON's management, the "Lambton and Sedgefield Hunt" became one of the most popular in the kingdom, and the superiority of the hounds was the theme of pride and boast to every sportsman in the North of England. Mr. LAMBTON served in Parliament for the city of Durham from 1798 to 1813; when he resigned his seat in obedience to the call of the Tories, who, on Lord Durham being elected for the county, objected to a member of the same family retaining a seat for the city. Though Mr. LAMBTON never took a conspicuous part in political warfare, he was a firm and conscientious supporter of the political principles of Mr. FOX; and the Liberal party, in its local struggles, always found him a staunch and decided friend.
