Death of the Right Hon. William Saurin.--Never, we may truly say, has it fallen to our lot to discharge a duty in every respect so painful as in announcing the demise of the illustrious and venerated William Saurin, which to the inexpressible grief of his family, and the irretrievable loss of his friends and his country, took place at 12 o’clock this day (Monday), at his residence in Stephen’s-green. Mr. Saurin had been for some time in a declining state of health, but his demise was sudden and unexpected. He died without a pang, and resigned his gentle spirit into the hands of his Maker without a groan. Although in his 83d year, he retained to the last moment the full possession of his faculties, and maintained to the end that sweetness of temper and amiability of disposition which never forsook him during the stormy scenes in which he was for so many years a prominent actor.--Evening Mail.
The Chief Justiceship.--It is rumoured that the Chief Justice is about to resign, and that Mr. Brady is to be appointed in his stead. We should suppose, however, that the Chief Justice, in the event of the resignation, would be either Judge Perrin or Baron Richards.
The Marquis of Normanby’s carriages, &c., are advertised for sale by auction at the stables in the Lower Castle yard on Monday next.
Representation of Cavan.The election for this county will take place on Monday next, when the Hon. Somerset Maxwell, brother to Lord Farnham the late representative, will be returned without opposition. Cavan is an impregnable fortress of staunch Conservatism, upon the battlements of which no banner but that of tried loyalty shall ever wave. There the independent and fearless Conservative will not shrink from the sacred duty he owes his country and his God, because a great man frowns or a mob yells destruction in his ears. Would to heaven that Ulster were girded round with such counties as Cavan—would that such hearts as pulsate in that brave shire formed the mass of the population, and the consequence would be a firm resistance to revolution, peace, tranquillity, and order. We congratulate Mr. Maxwell on the honor conferred on him by being chosen the representative of such men; and we also give joy to Cavan in her choice of an advocate.
Storm.--Dublin was again visited, last night, with a storm almost equal in violence to that of the memorable hurricane on the 7th ult. The gale (W. by W.) commenced about eleven o’clock, and continued till six this morning. The roofs of several houses have been stripped, but we have not heard of any serious accident. The arrivals of the English mails this day were, in consequence, much retarded.--Packet of Thursday.
We have learned with much gratification that Colonel Verner, the gallant and valued representative of Armagh, is at his post, as usual, in the great Conservative phalanx, and renovated in health and vigour. In order to join the loyal ranks in the hour of his country’s need, the worthy Colonel had to make a journey which was well fitted to test the completeness of his recovery. For thirteen days he was travelling without interruption, through frosts and storms, and snow, and for five severe nights, without sleep, or opportunity of repose. But he is now, we learn, sound of body as of heart. We wish him and all the faithful and true, strength and success in the arduous struggle that awaits them.--Newry Telegraph.
Murder of Lord Norbury.--We are enabled to state upon the best authority, that the paragraph going the rounds of papers, copied from the Limerick Chronicle, is incorrect. Although several persons have been arrested on suspicion, yet there are no grounds to warrant the statement so minutely detailed by our contemporary--indeed, we regret that there is as yet no reason to hope that the murderer is in custody.--Leinster Express.
Funeral of the late Lord Clements.The remains of this lamented young nobleman, whose death we announced on Saturday, were interred on Monday, in the family vault of St. Michan’s Church.
The funeral was, as himself directed, private; but the deep and unfeigned grief with which the intelligence of his death has been received by all who knew him, of every rank and station, every religious and political opinion, bears testimony to the character of his life.
His services as a member of the legislature have been prematurely closed; but even in the short period of their exercise, sufficient was done to maeifest [sic] his honest and liberal principles, his sound and unbiassed [sic] judgment, his talents and uncompromising independence, and his unpurchased devotion to his country. Nor was his private life less generally endeared.
