Aug. 1. The right honourable Ralph Payne, baron Lavington, of Lavington in Ireland, K.B. captain, general and governor in chief of his majesty's Leeward Islands, in the 69th year of his age. He was a nobleman much endeared in private life, and in his public rapacityesteemed and revered. His family were originally from Devonshire;

but but soon after the civil wars, and immediately upon the issue of the fatal battle of Worcester, fled to the West Indies, where most of them since remained. At a very early age his lordship discovered those shining talents which elevated him in life. After making the tour of Europe, on the general election of members of parliament in 176'8, his lordship became the representative for the boroueh of Shaftesbury, and served in the successive parliaments of 1774, and 1780, for Gamelford and Plympton. In 1772 his lordship received the honour of the order of the Bath, and died senior knight of the order. In 1774 he was appointed captain

feneral and governor in chief of the ii'eward Islands, and continued in that station until 17/5, when his lordship returned to England, and1 was appointed clerk of the board of Green Cloth, io which department he remained during; the existence of it. In October 17.95, his lordship was advanced to the peerage of the kingdom of Ireland, and created baron Lavington; which title, in consequence of his lordship's' dying without heirs, is now extinct.. In T795 his lordship was again elected a member of the British parliament for the borough of Woodstock; and in 1801 was again appointed captain-general of the "Leeward Islands, and sworn a member of his majesty's most honourable privy council. —Lord Lavington married mademoiselle Francoise Lambertine, baroness de Kolbcl, of a noble Saxon family, daughter of Frederick Maximilian baron dc Kolbel, a general in the imperial service.

At his apartments, in TottenhamcdWt.road, in the 76th year of his 3

age, Mr. John Walker, author of a Pronouncing Dictionary of the English language, and of several other works, of acknowledged excellence, on grammar and elocution.

Mr. John Mirchouse, of -Mire Sike, in Loweswater, Cumberland, in his ]02d year. A provincial journal informs us, that, on Octo. ber 19th, 1805, which was the anniversary of his birth, and the completion of his century, this person received a very numerous party of his neighbours (" all his juniors") seated in a new oak chair, and cloathed in a new coat, which, he pleasantly observed, might, vrilb care taken, serve his life-time. He possessed in an eminent degree all his faculties, sight excepted'. Hit memory seemed perfect to the last; for he occasionally spoke with the same accuracy of recent transactions (a singular circumstance!) as he bad been accustomed to do in relating occurrences of former times, which he had cither witnessed himself, or heard detailed by contemporaries at a period so remote as that of at least ninety years. The deceased was married in the 2lst year of his age, and was the father of five sons and one daughter. He was of a remarkably cheerful disposition; and, during the course of so long a life, it is not known that he ever had the least disagreement with his neighbours or acquaintance. His funeral was attended by an immense concourse of people, all emulous of shewing their respect to the memory of one whom they had individually esteemed while living, and who»« death, though " in full time," deprived their vicinity of so venerabl§ an ornament; and also for the example of one who had ** kept inno
