as a judge of the Justiciary Court. This last situation Lord Craig lately resigned, from bad health, but retained his seat in the civil court to his death.

the

When at the bar, Mr Craig was consider. ed as an able and sensible Counsel, though his practice never was extensive. He was rather remarked as a man of literary pursuit, and particularly attached to the Belles Lettres. He wrote a variety of papers in the Mirror and Lounger, which she elegance of his taste, and, we believe, his papers in those well-known works are more numerous than those of any author engaged in it, except those from the celebrated pen of his intimate friend Mr M'Kenzie. It was principally in his department of a Judge that Lord Craig distinguished himself as a public character. To a mind highly upright and honourable-excellent business talents, and knowledge of his profession, he joined the most persevering exertion; and, we believe, there were few who dispatched more business, or with greater precision, than Lord Craig. His judgments, formed after careful and anxious consideration, were generally perspicuous, sensible, and decided.

In private life, Lord Craig was remarked for many of the most aimable qualities of mind; he was gentle, affable,' and unassuming, and, in an eminent degree, hospitable and benevolent. He possessed the warm esteem of a select circle of friends, to whom he was extremely attached: and by the public was highly respected and revered.His Lordship has been 21 years upon the Bench.

At Broughty Ferry, near Dundee, James Campbell, Esq.-In his death the world of science has lost an eminent pillar, more particularly in nautical mathematics; an aptness of understanding, and a versatili ty of genius, rendered most things easy to him, and as an honest man he will be long remembered and deeply regretted.
