DEATHS.

Colonel the Hon. Charles Alexander Wrottesley, late of the 29th Regt., second son of the first Lord Wrottesley. The deceased served with the 15th Lancers at the siege of Bhurtpore, in 1825-6. July 13. In Spring-gardens, London, aged 84, George, eldest son of Lieut.General R. H. Wynyard, C.B. Jan. 7. At Brighton, after a long illness, aged 52, the Right Hon. Charles Anderson Worsley Anderson Pelham, Earl of Yarborough, Baron Yarborough, of Yarborough, Lincolnshire, and Baron Worsley, of Appuldercombe, Isle of Wight. The deceased Peer was educated at Eton, and entered Parliament for Newtown, Isle of Wight (since disfranchised), as soon as he became of age. In 1832, he was elected for Lincolnshire (part of Lindsey), which he continued to represent until called to the Upper House, by the decease of, his father, in 1846. In 1854, he was appointed Vice-Admiral; and in 1857, Lord-Lieutenant of the county. Whilst in health he took an active part in politics on the Liberal side ; but of late years he had suffered from paralysis, and in consequence had retired from public life. April 22. At Stock House, Dorset, aged 75, the Rev. Henry Farr Yeatman, LL.B., for many years chairman of the Dorset quarter sessions. The deceased, who was, in 1819, appointed to the living of Stock Gayland, near his own residence, having previously married a lady of considerable fortune, employed his leisure in intellectual pursuits, confining these, however, chiefly to one direction, namely, that of law. The statutes at large, the practice of the Courts, the clearing up of legal doubts, the reconciling of what to many appeared to be conflicting enactments, were his study and delight. As chairman of quarter sessions, his charges to the grand jury were so much valued that several of them have been published ; and in all matters connected with the welfare of the county in which he officiated, he was most laborious and painstaking in the discharge of the duties and responsibilities of his position. Dec. 10. At Florence, aged 72, Dr. Southwood Smith, the eminent physician. He was born at Martock, Somersetshire, Dec. 21, 1788, and was, therefore, at his decease within 11 days of completing his 73rd year. Dr. Southwood Smith was well known for his earnest and consistent labours in the cause of sanitary reform.

CENTENARIANs,

April 25. At Guernsey, aged 102, the Hon. Mrs. William Annesley. Her death was the result of accident, the venerable lady having fallen from her bed and dislocated her collar-bone a few days previously. March+12. At Browne's Hospital, Stamford, aged 103, William Ball. The deceased was a native of the village of Brigstock, and was brought up as a stonemason at King's Cliffe, and resided there until he became a bedesman at Stafford, 33 years ago. In early life he was a notorious poacher, deer-stealer, pugilist, wrestler, and the associate of abandoned characters; but he suddenly quitted these courses, and lived to obtain a very different reputation. April 13. At Rochester, aged 104, John Hill. He was always remarkable for being a man of very abstemious habits, and also an early riser, both of which, probably, conduced to his longevity. Until within the last few months Hill was in the habit of taking his daily walks about the city, and, notwithstanding his advanced age, had the appearance of being a hale old man. Feb. 15. At Newborough-villas, St. Paul's-road, Highbury-park, aged 102, Mr. John Jones. April 22. At Ballachulish, aged 106, Christina Mackintosh, or Macgillivray. She belonged to the Island of Skye, and was well known for upwards of half a century as “Kirstan Sgiathanach,” or Skye Kirsty, a sort of female gaberlunzie. She was always a strong and healthy woman, and till within a month or two of her death had all her faculties, and went about carrying a wallet of no ordinary dimensions. Sept. 12. Aged 102, Mr. John Cumming, farmer, Scalan, Braes of Glenlivet, He had passed his whole life in the immediate neighbourhood of Glenlivet, having been born within half a mile of the spot where he died. June 8. At Hoo, aged 100, Mr. Ezekiel Smith, a native of Dallinghoo. Feb. The Registrar-General records the death, at Perth, at the age of 105, of “the oldest inhabitant,” a woman whose name is not mentioned, but who was the eldest of 20 children born of the same parents; and 20 years, to a day, after her birth her youngest brother and sister (twins) were born.

the Bank, and having established themselves in the houses in the street, commenced firing from the roofs. The wounded were thus in very great danger, and would have fallen into the hands of the enemy had not Surgeon Reade drawn his sword, and, calling upon the few soldiers who were near to follow, succeeded, under a heavy fire, in dislodging the rebels, from their position. Surgeon Reade's party consisted of about ten in all, of whom two were killed and five or six wounded. Surgeon Reade also accompanied the regiment at the assault of Delhi, and on the morning of the 16th of September, 1857, was one of the first up at the breach in the magazine, which was stormed by the 61st Regiment and Belooch battalion, upon which occasion he, with a serjeant of the 61st Regiment, spiked one of the enemy's guns.
