THE LATE LORD ARTHUR CLINTON. Lord Arthur Pelham ClintoD, against whom a war- rant was lately issued for hi* alleged complicity in the Park and Boulton case, died at an early hour on Saturday morning, the JS.h iust., at Christchurch. He was attacked with scarlet fever a short time ago, and his constitution gradually sank under the disease. Before his death he solemnly denied the truth of the accusations which had been made against him. HiR lordship was the third son of tne late Duke of Newcastle, and was thirty years of M-e. He was educated at Woodcote School, near Reading, and at Eton. He entered the navv in 1854, served in Captain Peel's Naval Brigade in India, re- ceived two medals, and was made a lieutenant in 1861. At the general election of 1865 Lord Arthur Clinton was returned without opposition for Newark, in con- junction with Mr. Grosveuor Hodgkiuson. He de- scribed himself as a Liberal but voted against Mr. Gladstone's Reform Bill of 1866, was opposed to the ballot, and to the total abolition of church rates After his retirement from the House of CommonR in 1868, his lordship passed through the Court of Bankruptcy. The following has been published in the London papers In confirming the announcement which has appeared this evening in t'je colnmns of some of your contemporarifs of the eeath of my unfortuuate client, Lord Arthur IMhara Clinton, I beg you vill allow me space in your journal to enable me to carry out his last wishes in reference to the charges preferred sgain t him, the awful nature of which iu no slight degree accelerated his end. It was only 011 Friday morning that I was advised by tele- gram from his medical attendants of his critical state, when I immediately proceeded to Christchurch, where he had been staying for some time nast, and remained there until his death, which occurred this morning at 1 5, from exhaustion, resulting from scarlet fever. In pursuance of his instructions I had previously prepared, and he bad approved, the letter of which I enclose y-in copy, and which I iieg you will, in justice to his memory, insert with this. His state, however, of utter prostration did not permit him to sifm the copies which were made, although in lull possession of his mental faculties. 0 It may he satisfactory to h's relatives and friends to know that, in the presence of Dr. Ylade and myself, he. when con- Fcious of his approaching end, in a UI()I'.t earnest manner reiterated his denial of any complicity whatever iu the wretched case and alleged conspiracy, and his entire inno- cence of the graver charee imputed to him -1 am, Sir, your obedient servant, W. II. ROBERTS, 46, Moorgate-street, jf: U J uue 18.
