MONMO UTHSBIRE. DEATH or ARTHUR WYATT, Esq.)ied in Lon- • don on Friday evening, the-7tb inst. in the 59th year of his age, after a few hours illness, Arthur Wyatt, Esq. long time resident at Troy House, the seat of his Grace the Dnke of Beaufort. In announcing this melancholy event we find it equally impossible to ex- press the universal feeling Of sorrow, extending throughout all ranks, wherever his inffoencc was felt, and his benevolence exerted; or to declare the heart- felt sympathy awakened for those who, having known him in the more intimate connections of life, will long deplore the loss of a tender and affectionate father— 4 kind relative--atid a sincere Christian. In him the Duke of Beaufort has tolamenta friend, affectionately devoted to his interests, wbose zeal knew no bounds, but those ofnrnluJlied honour, and unshaken honesty and who, for twenty year-, held the office to which his Grace appointed him, with mutual advantage* to both landlord and tenant. And to those whom his care at once encouraged and befriended, we may say" Bear ehgraven on the tablets of your memory, his best monument, the grateful recollection of bis worth." Even the stranger to the country ift which he lived, attracted by the richness ofits natural scenery, and the unequalled grandeurof its venerable ruins, must participate in the general sorrow, when he feels that the taste which devised, and the skill which opened to him an easy access to, some of its most striking but heretofore secluded and almost in- accessible beauties, are lost for ever KIWPOR'T — ACCIDENTAL DEATH. — Yesterday week, Henry Matthews, mate of the brig Mary, of Hale, iii thia port, discharging ballast, was, with another man, on the stage driving barrows over it. Be not well secured, it gave way, and precipitated both into the hold. The mate met with instant death, tint the other man was not much injured. Tilt: LATE GAI.F.S.—The wind blew so tre- I mendously.on Tuesday, that the Bristol and Newport 1 steam packets, after two attempts, could not succeed in making the passage from Bristol to Newport, and were obliged to put back.

SHIPWRECK WITH Loss OF LIVES —We lament to state that on Tuesday last, between twelve and two o'clock, in a heavy gale of wind, the sloop Edward, of Bristol, from this port, with 50 tons of coal on board, three seamen, brothers, named Weeks, and a passenger (name unknown), got on shore on the eastern point of Newport river, where she was com- pletely wrecked, and all on board perished The following day the body of one of the men (Henry Weeks) was found not far from the wreck. On the inquest, no evidence was elicited how the vessel was lost; and the verdict returned was—Drowned. FUNERAL OF SIR ROBERT BROWNRIGG.—The remains of this distinguished officer and much respected gentleman were, on Tuesday, interred at St. Marghan s, near Monmouth, amidst the deep-felt sorrows of a large concourse of relatives, friends, and neighbours, who knew his worth.
