seducing Lady Cloncurry. The circum. stances attending this wretched man's death are horrible. He had debauched the daughter of a respectable clergyman, who, ca discovering his disgrace, immediately shot himself! Upon hearing of which, Sir John also put an end to his life, by shooting himself through the head! The unhappy fe male is in a state of hopeless distraction!

Lately, at Alves, in Morayshire, Joseph Anderson, a tenant on the Earl of Moray's estate. In reaping some corn, he had one of his fingers slightly wounded by a prickle, which caused almost immediate swelling in his hand and arm, accompanied with extreme pain. A surgeon was called in on the same day, but a mortification ensued, and the unfortunate man expired on the seventh day. He was a man of a very amiable character, and respectable in his station. He has left a son, who, it may not be unworthy to remark, is the only remaining representative of a line of ances tors who have resided, as the Earl of Moray's tenants, on the farm of Easter Cleves, since the middle of the thirteenth century; it being but a few years ago that his father gave up to the Earl's factor discharges of rents paid to Earl Randolph.
