His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge was obliged to

postpone his in- tended visit to the Earl of Cardigan, at Deene Park, Northampton, in consequence of symptoms of rout having seized the Royal Duke. On Thursday his Royal Highness was well enough to dine at the Dutchess of Gloucester's.—Morning Chronicle.

Lord Whameliffe's illness terminated fatally, yesterday morning. James Archibald Stuart Wortley was born in October 1776. He was a younger son of Colonel Stuart Wortley, a gentleman of large property and ancient family; and was destined for the military profession. In 1791 he entered the Army; and he held a commission until the death of his eldest brother admitted him to the en-

foyment of the patrimony. In 1802, Mr. Wortley entered Parliament, as Member or the borough of Bossiney, in Cornwall; but he failed to attract notice till 1812; when, on Mr. Perceval's assassination, be was intrusted with the moving of an address to the Prince Regent, praying that he " would form a strong and efficient Ministry." On the death of his father, in 1818, he aspired to the repre- sentation of Yorkshire; and was returned along with the present Earl Fitzwilham, then Lord Milton. He continued to represent the county till, in 1826, he was raised to the Peerage, under the title of Baron Wharneliffe. As a member of the Upper House, Lord Wharncliffe opposed the Reform Bill; and when Sir Robert Peel formed a Ministry in 1834, he was made Lord Privy Seal. In 1841, on the expulsion of the Whigs, he was made President of the Privy Council. Lord Wharncliffe married, in 1799, the Lady Elizabeth Creighton, youngest daughter of the first Earl of Erne; by whom he had three sons and two daugh- ters. Be is succeeded by his eldest son, the Honourable John Stuart Wortley.

The Dublin letters of Thursday announce the death of the Earl of Belmore, on the previous morning, at Castlecoole, in the county of Fermanagh, after a fort- night's illness. "Armar Lowry Corry, Earl of Belmore, Viscount and Baron Bel- more, of Castlecoole, was born 23d December 1801, and had nearly completed his 44th year. He married in 1834, the youngest daughter of the late William Shep- herd, Esq., of Bradvourne, Kent, by whom he had issue three sons and four daughters. The eldest son, Somerset Richard, Viscount Corry, born in April 1835, succeeds to the title. The late Lord Belmore was not a member of the House of Peers.
