DEATH OF THE RIGHT HON. EDWARD ELLICE, M.P. We- regret have to announse-the death of the above-named well-known gentleman, who, though retireclProm thea:ciivedutles of gov.emment for many years, hascontmuedto sit for Coventry, which he has represented, with an interval of four years —from: 1826 to, 1830-ever since- 1818. He was found dead in his bed on Tlvur^sL&y morning, at Ardochy, on bin- estate of Glengarry and Glen- quoich. It appears that he had retired on Wed- nesday night in Ms ordinary health, but the sad event had' oeeurrc-d before morning.

He married secondly, in 1843; a daughter of the Earl of Albemarle and the widow of the Earl of Leicester, who survived their union but-a year. Mr. Ellice was known to have had some share in the preparation of the Reform Bill,. on behalf of which he spoke in Parliament. On the retirement, of the Grey ad- ministration Mr. Ellice, while retaining his seat, appeared to abjure active political life; for ever since, although he has not been without consider-. able quiet isfeence on the Liberal benches, he has- never aceeptad office. Personally;. Mr. Ellice was-, mueh liked by bis associates. His kindness many have felt, his ad- vice many listened have to with, profit, his amiability many have admired. In politics he was a Whig; but his infeence, whether in Parliament or in the secret meetings of his party, has rather been felt than seea since the carrying of the Reform BilJi
