Oct. 21. At Demerara, in the West Indies, after a few days' illness of a typhus fever, in his 29th year, Mr. Robert-James Collins, first mate of the ship Ranger. He was adopted by Mr. Neve of Aldeburgh, Suffolk, by whom, and by all his friends, he is most deservedly lamented.

Nov. 1. At George Town, in Berbice, his Excellency Charles W. Bentinck, Lieut. Governor of that colony.

Nov. 6. At Demerara, the wife of Prince Smith, esq. Second Fiscal and King's Ad. vocate of Demerara and Essequibo.

Dec. 14. At Milbank (Kildare), in his 84th year, C. Annesley, esq. of Ballysax. With him became extinct the eldest branch of the family of Annesley, which had formerly enjoyed the rank and titles of Earl of Anglesea in England, and of Viscount Valentia, in Ireland.

Surgeon to the 15th Regiment of Foot, and second son of the late Rev. Thomas Richards, Vicar of Bromham, Biddenham, and Stagsden, co. Bedford. His death was evidently accelerated by a zealous discharge of his official duties; for the Report of the Medical Board upon bis case states, "that although he is not labouring under any decided disease, from his long services and residence of several years in a tropical climate, and from the very great fatigue which he endured during the sickly season of last year, when the whole duty devolved upon himself, we find that his general health is very much impaired, both bodily and intellectually, so as to render him inadequate to the performance of his professional duties."

Dec. 21. At Belcamp Cottage, Balbriggan (Dublin), in his 56th year, Philpot Rogerson Wolfe, esq. nephew of the late Right Hon. Lord Kilwarden, and Secretary to the Board of Works in Ireland.

His real and personal property is supposed to amount to little short of 100,000. It is believed, that he has made a Will; but none has yet been found, although considerable rewards are offered for such information as may lead to the discovery of a Will.

She lingered three days and expired.

Jan. 3. At his house near Wakefield, Yorkshire, Jos. Armitage, esq.-He was of great eccentricity, and as well known in the world of fashion some years ago as any man of his time. Latterly he had shut himself up from all society; and although possessed of a clear income and estate of 5000l. a year, his mind was completely obscured with the idea that he was fast approaching to poverty, and must go to the parish workhouse. Several times lately he wrote to a friend in London saying, "Hasten down and sell me up, that I may rest assured of food and raiment for the rest of my life."-His whimsical and very extraordinary parsimony on some occasions, and his unbounded generosity on others, will not soon be forgotten; and if it was necessary to find a similar personage to fill the chasm made by the death of this extraordinary man, it would be a matter of no small difficulty. A few years ago he was engaged in a very serious quarrel; and it being demanded of him "to name time, place, and his friend," he coolly wrote in answer, "St. James's Church-yard, Piccadilly-12 o'clock at night-and the sexton of the parish."

At Hoddesdon, Herts, in his 83d year, William White, esq. a gentleman whose suavity of manners and goodness of heart will ever endear his memory to his family, his friends, and all who knew him.-In his attachment to the Established Religion of his country, to his King, and to our excellent Constitution, he was firm and immoveable. Although his advanced age and infirmities kept him in his latter days retired from the world, he yet uniformly continued in the practice of those benign duties which were congenial with, and formed a principal feature in, his character, as a sincere Christian. The delight he felt in the performance of secret acts of charity and benevolence is now exemplified by the liberal bequests he has made to individuals and several public charities. These testimonies, while they perpetuate his virtues, will excite those who were most dear to him to follow his example, and thereby endeavour to secure the reward of this upright man, whose protracted life it had pleased God should be serene and happy, and whose last end was resigned and peaceful.
