DEATH OF SIR WILLIAM KNOLLYS. Sir William Knollys, the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, died at his residence in the House of Lords on Saturday afternoon. The deceased gentle- man had been so unwell as to be unable to fulfil the duties of his office for five weeks past, and he had been confined to his bed for about a fortnight, having been attended by Sir William Jenner and Sir Oscar Clayton. The immediate cause of death was inter- mittent fever, but Sir William's advanced age largely contributed to the fatal result, as he was in his 86th year. Sir William's death was not altogether unexpected, and all his sons and daughters were present when he died. The Prince and Princess of Wales and the other members, of the Royal family have been con. stant in their inquiries during the illness of the deo ceased gentleman. Sir Spencer Clifford, the Deputy Usher of the Black Rod, has, during Sir William's illness, been fulfilling the duties of the office, and he will continue to do so until a successor is appointed.
