DEATH OF SIR WILLIAM YOUNG, BART. - This venerable baronet the particulars of whose recent conviction for the illegal sale of East India cadetships are fresh in the recollection of our readers, died on Friday last at his residence in Westbourne-terrace, Hyde-park, aged 75. He had been latterly in a very delicate state of health; so debilitated indeed was he, that the result of the trial was never communicated to him, and arrest of judgement on his behalf was moved for last term by Mr. Cockburn; but now all, so far as regards his part in the transaction, is over. The deceased was for many years an East India director; but, although thus connected with perhaps the richest corporate body in the world, he latterly suffered from great pecuniary embarrassments. He is succeeded in the title by his eldest son, John, M.P. for Cavan county, and late secretary to the Treasury. The other male members of his family hold civil and military appointments in India. - Observer.
