DEATH OF MISS ELIZA GEORGE.- Many of our readers will learn with regret of the sudden death at the residence of her sister, 6, Gambier terrace, JOangor, on Wed- nesday afternoon, of Miss Eliza George, daughter of the late Mr George, Scripture Reader, of this town. Miss George for some years kept a private school in Uxbridge square, and in fact, only retired from the duties of that, position last Christmas, on account of illhetlth. Of late, she had been suffering from rheumatism, in a very severe form, and only a fortnight ago, her sister, Miss Mary George decided to have her with her at Bangor, in order that she might attend to her comforts personally. During the past few days, Miss George had apparently much improved in health, but on Wednesday, after eating a light dinner, with much apparent satisfaction, she suddenly fell into an un- eoncious state, from which she never recover- ed, dying in about a quarter of an hour after the seizure. The medical opinion is that the cause of death was the rheumatism affecting the heart. ROYALTY AND THE ERYRI MALE VOICE CHOIR.
