DEATHS.

In thr 69th year of his age, at his seat. Grange Hali, near Rot her hum, the Ri^hi Hon. Richard Howard, Earl Effingham, F.S.A. Treasurer t» the Queen.

Barbadoes papers communicate the death of Sir Jamei Leith, the Governor of Barbadoes. He was attacked on the 10th of October with a fever, which proved fatal to him on the kith. Sir James was buried with military honours on the 17th of October; the troops, inhabitants, and every human creautre, being anxious to pay him this last sad tribute <-f respect,

Dec. 15, at his seat at Chevening, in Kent. Charles Stanhope, Earl Stanhope. His Lordship was born Augusta, 1753; succeeded his father Philip, the late Earl, March 7. 17M? and married, in December, 1774, Hester Pitt, eldest daughter of William, first Earl of Chatham, sister of the present Earl and of the late Ri^htHon. William Pill, by whom he had issue Hester Lucy Griselda, married to John Tickell, Esq. of Havnbledon, Hants; and LucyEachael, married to Thomas Taylor, Esq. of Sevenoaks, Kent, since dead. His Lordship married, secondly, in 1791, Louisa, only daughter of Henry Grcuvillc, Esq. late Governor ol Barbadoes, and uncle to George, first Marquis of Buckingham, by whom he had issue, Philip Henry, Viscount Mahon, now Earl Stanhope, And two other sons. His loss will, on many account?, make a chasm In public life which will not be easily supplied. The great and useful work for which he was peculiarly qualified, and to which he had for a long time applied the most earnest attention, will, we fear, now fail to the ground; we allude to a Digest of all thr Statutes-"* work of such stupendous labour as well as information, that few persons can be expected to set abqut it with vigour, unless, like Lord Stanhope, they had acquiied a sort of parental fondness for the subject, by brooding over it for years. He was in hi* 6*th year. His Lordship had been long confined by aiivtr complaint and dropsy, which baffled every effort of medicine.
