J_ FUNERAL OF THE MARCHIONESS OF BUTE. (From the Cambridge Chronicl.) On Tuesday,Sept. 21st, in the parish church of Kit tling, in this county, the remains of Iaria North, Marchioness of Bate, were deposited in a vault belongirw to the North familv, which had not been opt tied for the reception of any corpse for upwards of 150 years. Below we give an extract from a letter from Cowlinge, near Newmarket, dated Sep. 22nd, 11:>11 Yesterday was a mournful day in the adjoining parish ( in consi quence. of the funeral of the late lamented Marchioness of Bute, v. ho was brought fr lint YVnliner, where she died, to be inteneo in the vault of the North family. The tenantry having requested to be permitted to escort the procession when it arrived in the neighbour- hood, which was kindly aiC did to, they, with her ladyship's bmd steward at their head.met the hearse with six horses and three mourning coaches andfour,at Saxon street, near the borders of the estate,and preceded the procession on horsehack to the Tower, (which is part of the ancient residence of the IJarons North, of Kirtlin; and has recently been coti,-crtc-d into a sm,,Il residence for the tise of tbc family, and fr-m thence to the church yard, where the hearse was met by the noble Miirquis as chief mourner, his brow.er. Lord James Stewart. Lonl Stewart lie Kotbsay. Lord Sheffield, Col. North, Mr Criehton Stewart, and Mr De Grave, con- ducted by the tenantry on foot to tiie church door, and from thence to a brick grave within the family vault. "In the vault whirl. wa li¡h:ed up with wax candles, I noticed several coffins containing the remains of her ladyship's ancestors, from the year 1554, downwards. At Saxon street, t herew as a great number of persons assembled to witness the mournful ceremony which increased as the procession moved on in an amazing degree, and on reaching the church yard, it seemed as if nearly the whole population of Kirtling and Ashley (where her ladyship's estates are situate) were got together, and also an immense concourse of person ■! from the adjoininsr parishes, of the yeomanry and their families, and particularly >>f the poor, insomuch that the clitircli, a large one, would not hold them all. Every person present, the poor in particu^r, shewed a sincere sorrow for the loss they had sustained in such a benefactress and well they might, for ever since her ladyship came to these estates, their comfort and welfare has been her chief consideration. The farm tenants, from the liberality and kindness thev have always -experienced from the late Marchioness and his lordship, were fully impressed with the extent of the loss that they had sustained. "The mannerin which all the melancholy arrange- ments were conducted by Mr Spain, of Deal, the undertaker, were highly creditable to hi.n. I understand that her ladyship havintr expressed a wish to build some almshouses in the parish, his Lord- ship lia; declared his intention of having them erected forthwith."
