DEATH of the DUKE of ATHOLE, K.T. After an illness of the most painful character, ex- tending over several months, his Grace the Duke of Athole, Knight of the Thistle, and Grand Master Mason of Scotland, expired at Blair Athol on Satur- day. His grace's distressing sufferings from one of the saddest forms of physical infirmity—cancer at the back of the neck, we believe — have attracted the sympathy of all classes, not only in his native county, where he was universally beloved, but in England, where he was little known, his grace having taken no part whatever in political affairs. This sympathy has in the most marked manner been shown lately by her Majesty the Queen, who had been long on friendly terms with the Ducbe?s of Athole. On her last visit to Balmoral the Queen, through womanly sympathy, went out of her route to pay a visit to the suffering duke. With the loyalty of a gallant Scotchman, his grace, to the astonishment of the tenantry and even of hi" own wife, in spite of his sad condition, wel- comed his Sovereign, and received from Royal bps assurances of respect and condolence and knowing that his end was drawing nigh, he bade farewell to his gracious mistress on her leaving the gates of Blair Athol—a chivalrous conclusion of a noble and useful life prematurely brought to a close. He was born in 1814, and the "first gentleman in Europe," George IV., was his godfather. His grace is succeeded by his only child, John James Hugh Henry, Marquis of Tullibardinc, bo- August 7. 1840. educated at Eton, a.qd an omoer In the Guards, who was married a few weeks ago to the daughter of Sir Thomas and Lady Louisa Mon- crieffe.
