DEATH OF THE MARQUIS OF HUNT'LY. The Marquis of Huntly expired last week at his seat, Orton Longueville, near Peterborough, in the 72nd year of his age. Death had been slowly stealing upon the venerable peer for some weeks past, and he died without apparent pain from the decay of nature. When in London during the past season the marquis felt his health fail him, and on the occasion of his daughter's marriage with the Hon. Gilbert Heathcote he was not present. After a time, however, his lordship rallied, and a month ago he returned to Orton, where he remained, under- the care of his local medical attendant, Dr. Paley. On Sunday last the marquis, was at church, and partook of the Sacrament with his family, but on Tuesday and Wednesday it was apparent that a change was at hand. Lord Lewis Aboyne, the marquis's second C son, who was with the Channel fleet, was tele- graphed for, and arrived the same night. Lady Evelyn Heathcote 'and the Hon. Gilbert Heathcote were also at Orton: Charles Gordon, Marquis of Huntly, Earl of Huntly, Enzie, and Aboyne, Viscount of Melgun and Aboyne, Lord of Gordon and Badenoch, Baron Aboyne, and Baron Gordon of Strathayon, Gren- livet, and Inverness, in the peerage of Scotland.; I and Baron Meldruni of Morven, county Aberdeen, in that of the United Kingdom Premier Marquis of Scotland, and a Baronet' of Nova Scotia; was born 4th January, 1792, succeeded 17th June, 1#63, married first, 1st March, 1826, Lady Eliza- I beth Henrietta ^onyngliam,eldest daughter of Henry, first Marquis Convngham, born 20th February, 1799, died 24th August, 1839; and secondly, 9th April, 1844, Mary Antoinetta, only surviving daughter of the Rev.
