DEATH OF LORD LLANOVEB. On the 27th of April,, at his mansion in Great Stan- hope-street,, Mayfair, the Right Hon. Lord Llanover died, after severe sufferings. Lord Llauover (says the Observer) will long be remem- bered for his consistent and unswerving Liberalism, as well as for his undoubted acuteness of intellect and his high administrative ability. He was a staunch politi- cian, an excellent friend, and, in every sense of the word, "an honest man." The deceased nobleman was the eldest son of Benja- min Hall, M.P., of Hensoll Castle, Glamorganshire. He was born in 1802, and consequently was at the time. of his death 65 years, of age. He received his education at Westminster and, Christcliurch, Oxford, and first entered Parliament as member for Monmouth in 1831. In November, 1837,. he was elected for the borough of Marylebone, which constituency he continued to represent until June, 1859, when he was ele- vated to the Peerage with the title of Lord Llanover. Previous to his acceptance of office, Sir Benjamin Hall took a leading and active part in the discussions in the House of Commons on questions affecting the Church Establishment. In August, 1854, he accepted the office of President of the Board of Health, which he held until August of the following year, when he accepted the post of First Commissioner of Works. It was during his tenure of that office that Sir Benjamin Hall introduced the measure for the local government of the metropolis under which the present Metropolitan Board of Works was elected, and made such great improvements in the parks of the metropolis. He was created a baronet in 1838, privy councillor 1854, and Lord Llanover in 1859.
