We regret to announce the death, yesterday morning, of Mr.  WILSON, of
Shotley Hall, at the age of 80 years.

Mr. WILSON was highly respected in both East Cumberland and in  
Northumberland, and his public spirit, especially in encouraging the finer  breeds of
shorthorns, conferred great benefits on the agriculture of the  district.

Mr. WILSON was a magistrate for Cumberland and Northumberland.  He was a
strong Conservative in politics, and was a vice president of the East  Cumberland
Conservative Association, and president, we believe, of the Alston  branch of
that Association.
