DEATH OF THE EARL OF CADOGAN. This nobleman died last week at his residence in London. The deceased George Cadogan, Earl Cadogan, Viscount Chelsea, county Middlesex, Baron Cadogan of Oakley, county Bucks, and Baron Oakley of Caver- sham, county Oxon, in the peerage of Great Britain, was the eldest surviving son of Charles Sloane, first Earl of Cadogan, by his second wife Mary, eldest daughter of Mr. Charles Churchill. He was born on the 5th of May, 1783, so that he was in his eighty- second year, and married, on the 4th of April, 1810, Louisa Honoria, fifth daughter of Mr. Joseph Blake, and sister of the first Lord Wallscourt, by whom, who died in September, 1845, he leaves three sons and two daughters-viz., Henry Charles Viscount Chelsea, Col. the Hon. George Cadogan, C.B., the Hon. Frederick WilliamCadogan, and the Ladies Augusta and Honoria Cadogan. The late Earl was the third senior Admiral in the navy, and, consequently, a general promotion takes place. He entered the navy in December, 1795, and for twenty years of his professional oareer saw much active service. He served in the Indefatigable at the capture of the French frigate Virginie, in 1796, and at the destruction of the Droits de l'Honinie in 1797. He was mate of the Impeteux, commanding the barge appointed to lead the fire ship in the attack on the combined French and Spanish squadrons in Aix roads, in 1799. He took part in the expedition to Ferrol; and was at the capture of Guepe in 1800. As lieutenant of the Leda he was in action with the Boulogne flotilla, was com- mander of the Cyane at the capture of the French privateer brig Bonaparte, and of the Ferret at the capture of a Spanish brig of fourteen guns. As I captain of the Pallas, in the Walcheren expedition, he also rendered most useful service, and, when captain of the Havannah, he took and destroyed, within ten months, ninety-one sail of vessels, mostly armed. Lord Cadogan commanded the same frigate at the reduction of Zara in 1813, and that may be considered the crowning action of his naval career. He was made a Companion of the Bath in 1815, and was also a Knight of the Austrian order of Maria Theresa. His commissions were dated as follows:—Lieutenant, April 12, 1802; Commander, May 4, 1804; Captain, March 23, 1807; Rear-Admiral, November 23, 1841; Vice-Admiral, July 1, 1851; and Admiral, Julyl, 1857. During the year 1831 he was appointed an extra Aide- de-Camp to the late King William IV. The late peer is succeeded in his titles and estates by his eldest son, Viscount Chelsea, who was born February 15th, 1812, and married, July 13th, 1836, Mary, the third daughter of the late Hon. and Rev. Gerald Valerian Wellesley, and niece of the late Duke of Wellington. The present Earl was attached to the British Embassy at St. Petersburg from June, 1834, till July, 1835. He was M.P. for Reading from 1841 to 1847, and was returned for Dover in July, 1853. In the spring of 1851 he was appointed Secretary of the English Embassy at Paris, and was for a short time Charge d'Affaires. Death of "Viscountess Hardinge —The intel-
