performed by proxy.-On the evening of the marriage, however, the bride, in coming down ftairs, making a falfe step, was precipitated from the top to the bottom with fo much violence against a chair, that her head was nearly fevered from her body, and the immediately expired. The remains of this unfortunate lady were brought to Llangefni, in great funeral pomp, for interment. This accident will, it is expected, afford room for muca luigation, as well as amufement, to the penilemen of the long robe. The Bawgwdqu and Bedwig eftates have belonged to the Pencoch and Hughes families (ccording to North Wales tradition) from within a cen-. ury of the flood; and the lady's heirs are fo anxious to keep them fo, that they difpute Mr. Cecfan's right to poffellion of them, on the plea, that, as Miís Pencoch died in the afternoon of her wedding day, the marriage cannot be held to have been duly confummated, fo as to entitle her husband to the enjoyment of her estates, even by courtefy. Mr. C. has, however, fairly offered to bring fufficient proof that the marriage was fully confummated.

At Great Yarmouth, aged 74, Samuel Hurrey, efq. He had been, for fome time paft, much afflicted with the rheumatism, and advifed to try fea-bathing, which he practifed in the afternoon, foon after dinner. He rode out one forenoon, and, after a temperate meal, was carried, in a fedan chair, to the bathing-house, between 3 and 4. It was perceived that he fhewed great fymptoms of feeblenefs, but, as he

Which, in Bacon's Liber Regis, is

called King's college, Oxford, its style of

foun estion being “the king's ball and college of Brazenofe," always

always declined affiftance, he was permitted, after undreffing, to retire into the bathing-room, where. on hearing an unufual noife, they found him in the bath with his face bent down to the furf ce of the water, and his hands ftretched out upon it, fuppofed to have been fuffocated by apoplexy. He had been bred to the fea, by that kind of education which, be used to fay, all genuine feamen nf-d to have, "entering in at the hawle-holes, and going out of the cabin-windows." In the war

which clofed foon after the beginning of the prefent reign, he was employed on the coafts of France and America, and engaged the attention of Admiral Bofcawen in a franfport. He quitted the fervice about 25 years ago, and engaged very largely, as a fhip-owner and general merchant, in partnership with one of his brothers.

18. At Peterburg, the celebrated Field marthal Suvvaroff. At this time last year his name retouned from every month, and his triumps freque'y graced our columns. His blood was inflamed by the painful iabours of his glorious campaign; his foul oppreffed with the contradictions which prevented him from crowning it by the total expulfion of the French from Italy; and his heart afflicted with the grief of finding his important fervices repaid by unaccountable caprice and ingratitude. He is faid to have been in difgrace with his Sovereign and fuch, it appears, is the character of Ruffian manners, that the difpleasure of the Prince includes banithment from all fociety. The man fo lately the theme of Royal panegyric, report fays, was abfolutely abandoned in the ftruggles of fickness and death; and the laft moments of Savvaroff were deprived of the offices of friendship, and the confolation of public fympathy. Such at least is the rumour; but we hope it is untrue or exaggerated. There would be fomething in this treatment of the veteran General worse than caprice. Suvvaroff, it cannot be denied, ferved his country with perfevering fuccefs and implicit fidelity, and has contributed to confolidate the power and to extend the fare of the Ruffian empire. Pofterity will render him that juftice which his contemporaries refused him; and we are not afraid to express its language before hand, by paying this homage to the great talents and virtues of a hero, whose ac tions will maintain a diftinguished rank in the hiftory of the 18th century. 15,000 perions attended his funeral.
