THE LATE BISHOP BRAMSTON.—The Right Rev. Dr. Jas. Yorke BRAMSTON, who died last Monday, the 11th inst., at Southampton, in the 74th year of his age, universally regretted by the flock over which he had presided, beloved and respected by a most numerous acquaintance, was born of a highly respectable family in Northamptonshire. Having chosen the profession of the law, he was articled to Mr. Charles BUTLER, so well known for his legal and literary abilities. For three or four years he practiced as a conveyancer, with unexampled success, from his superior intelligence and extensive knowledge of the law. Having embraced the Catholic religion, which circumstance occasioned not an angry word, nor the least diminution of friendly intercourse, with his relations or former connections, and being without any incumbrance, as he had never been married, he determined to devote his life to the preaching and teaching of the doctrines which he had embraced after the most mature deliberation. With the full consent of his venerable father he went to the English college at Lisbon, where having studied theology, and the sacred scriptures, he was ordained priest. Upon his return to England he chose to serve the London district, and chose in preference one of its poorest congregations for the exercise of his sacerdotal labours. In the year 1823 he was consecrated Coadjutor Bishop to Dr. POYNTER, and in 1827 succeeded that venerable prelate in the duties of the episcopacy. So far was Bishop BRAMSTON from being "treated as an alien by his family, and left without provision," that he succeeded, upon the death of his elder brother, to all the property of his late father.
DEATH OF SIR M. W. RIDLEY, BART., M.P.—At Richmond, in Surrey, on Friday afternoon, the 15th inst., in the 59th year of his age, of apoplexy, Sir Matthew White RIDLEY, Bart., M.P—He had for some time previous been unwell, but appeared to be rapidly getting better. In the early part of the week he left town for Richmond, for the country air, and was expected to return on Friday. That afternoon, about 4 o'clock, he was seized with a fit of apoplexy—never spoke again—and very soon expired. Sir Matthew represented Newcastle in parliament for about 24 years, was the head of the banking house of Sir M. W. RIDLEY, BIGGE & Co., and was also engaged in the coal trade and glass works. The intelligence of his death reached that town on Sunday evening, and excited a considerable sensation.
