DEATH OF J. J. CURWEN, ESQ. - ELECTION FOR CUMBERLAND. -
Accounts were received here yesterday, announcing the death of Mr. CURWEN, one
of the members for Cumberland. A vacancy for that county is thus occasioned, and
Sir James GRAHAM. of Netherby, is already in the field as a candidate. Sir James
has resigned his seat for Carlisle. We have not heard any person named as his
successor. We suppose, however, that either Mr. LAWSON, the candidate at the
last election, or some other person equally friendly to popular rights, will be
immediately announced as the successor of Sir James. An active canvass among the
Cumberland freeholders in this quarter has been already commenced. - Manchester
