He was born in 1798, took a first class in classics at Ox- ford in 1820, and filled various offices in the Government from 1832 to 1858, including those of President of the Board of Trade, Chief Secretary for Ireland, and Secre- tary of State for the Colonies. In 1858 he was raised to the peerage as Lord Taunton, a title which he assumed in compliment to the borongh he had represented for nearly thirty years. His last public employment was as chairman of the Endowed Schools Commission. By his first wife, a daughter of Sir Thomas Baring, he had several daughters, one of whom is married to Captain Ellis, equerry of the Prince of Wales.

THE LATE WILLIAM JERDAN.— Mr. William Jerdan died on Sunday at Bushey-heath, in his eighty-eighth year. He was a native of Kelso, was educated at Edin- burgh for the Scottish bar, and came to London to push his fortunes as a literary man. With most of the notable personages of the last fifty years he had personal acquaint- ance, and with some of the men of highest mark in litera- ture and politics he was on terms of intimacy. It was Mr. Jerdan who, in the lobby of the old House of Commons, seized Bellingham, the assassin of Mr. Perceval. At that time he was one of the reporters for the press, and his connection with periodical literature continued for half a century. In recent numbers of "Fraser's Magazine" are contributions from his pen, and the last two parts of the Gentleman's Magazine" eontain an article by him on the celebrated Beefsteak Club. Late in life he received a pension of J3100 a year for his long service to literature.

The Civil Service Gazette has the following interest- ing remarks:—"There are very few simple articles of food which can boast so many valuable and important dietary properties,as cocoa. While acting on the nerves as a gen-tie stimulant, itprovides the body with some of the purest elements of nutrition, and at the same time corrects and invigorates the action of the digestive organs. These beneficial effeets depend in a great mea- sure upon the manner of its preparation, but of late years such close attention has been given to the growth and treatment of cocoa that there is no difficulty <in securing it with every useful quality fully developed. The singular success which Mr. Kpps attained by his homoeopathic preparation of cocoa has never been surpassed by any ex- perimentalist. Far and wide the reputation of Epps's Cocoa has spread by the simple force of its ø-wn extra- ordinary merits. Medical men of all shades of opinion have agreed in recommending it as the safest and most beneficial article ot diet for persons of weak constitutions. This superiority of a particular mode of preparation over all others is a remarkable proof of the great results to be obtained from little causes. By a thorough know- ledge of the natural laws which govern the operations of digestion and nutrition, and by a careful application of the fine properties of well-selected cocoa, Mr. Epps has provided our breakfast tables with a delicately flavoured beverage which may save us many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judicious use of such articles of diet that a constitution may be gradually built up until strong enough to resist every tendency to disease. Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating arouud us ready to attack wherever there is a weak point. We may escape many a fatal shaft by keeping ourselves well fortified with pure blood and a properly nourished frame." Epps's Cocoa. —Only in ilb., £ lb., and lib. packetg-tin-lined and labelled.
