DEATH OF MR. CHARLES DIBDIN, THE DRAMATIC WRITER.— At his lodgings, on Tuesday, in Garden-row, London-road (within the rules of the King's Bench Prison), where he had resided for some time. The deceased was in his sixty-fifth year, and a medical gentleman gave it as his opinion that he had died from decay of nature. One of the jurors inquired whether the deceased had been in want of the common necessaries of life, which was answered in the negative. The jury proceeded to the residence, and after taking a view of the body, returned a verdict in accordance with the opinion expressed by the surgeon. The deceased was much respected; he was the author of "the Cabinet," "the Quaker," and other successful pieces, and was at one time the proprietor of Sadler's Wells Theatre. His circumstances became reduced lately, and he took up his abode within the limits of the King's Bench Prison. The Morning Herald says that his fervent and unaffected piety shone forth in the latter years of his life with increased and peculiar lustre.
 
Mr. JOSHUA BROOKES, THE ANATOMIST.—We announce with feelings of deep regret the death, during the past week, of this once distinguished lecturer.— Having instructed thousands of medical students in the science of anatomy, he was well known, up to the hour of his death, by many hundreds of medical practitioners. Always kind in his manner, ever attentive to his duties, he was beloved most devotedly by his pupils, and respected by all who knew him. By the labour of his own hands, he raised up a museum which from the number and rarity of the specimens of natural and diseased structure that it contained, was second only to that of John HUNTER. The College of Surgeons, by its monopolising regulations relative to winter courses of lectures, destroyed Mr. BROOKES's school,—wrested from him, in fact, tbe means of honourable subsistence. The deadly blow levelled against the man fell, in part, upon the splendid monument of his scientific exertions. The museum was shattered to atoms, and the dismembered fragments were sold at a frightful sacrifice, under the hammer of an auctioneer. — Lancet.
