Died.
 
DEATH OF DR. BLAMIRE.—On Good Friday, in the 78th year of his age, Thos. BLAMIRE, Esq., M. D. of this City, one of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County of Cumberland, Deputy Lieutenant of the County, and Senior Alderman of the City of Carlisle. Dr. BLAMIRE was the fourth son of the late G. BLAMIRE, Esq., of this city,—and received the rudiments of his education at the High School. In 1776 he repaired to the University of Edinburgh, and diligently attended the lectures of the illustrious CULLEN, BLACK, and MONRO. In 1778 he studied in London under the celebrated Dr. Wm. HUNTER. In 1779 he took the degree of M. D. at Leyden, at that time a place of great celebrity, and for many years the first medical school in Europe. In 1780 he was appointed one of the assistant Surgeons of Haslar Hospital Portsmouth, in which situation he remained four years, and was the colleague and intimate friend of the late Dr. BABINGTON, of London. Dr. BLAMIRE was one of the oldest Members of the Royal College of Surgeons, London, and Surgeon extraordinary to the Carlisle Dispensary. As a professional man, he was skilful, cautious, and eminently successful. He settled in Carlisle in the year 1784, and had for many years a most extensive practice. No medical man was ever more respected and beloved by his patients. As a magistrate, he was intelligent, impartial, and decisive; and deservedly classed among the unpaid magistracy of the realm. As a member of society, he was cheerful, social, and sincere. Dr. BLAMIRE six times filled the office of chief magistrate of this city and the manner in which he, during those times, discharged the duties of his office, always gave the fullest satisfaction to his fellow-citizens, and reflected the greatest credit upon himself. For several years past he had laboured under severe attacks of asthma, which obliged him to retire from the practice of his profession; and at last prevented him, in a great measure, from attending to his duties as a magistrate. In his death Carlisle has lost one of its oldest, best, and worthiest inhabitants.
[We give the above as it has been sent to us by a much respected correspondent. Of the professional character of Dr. BLAMIRE we profess to know nothing. As a magistrate, his conduct came more under our observation, and certainly we never saw thing in it to excite very warmly our admiration; and must with all submission, demur to the opinion that in him "Carlisle has lost one of its best and worthiest inhabitants." It is but fair, however, to add, that the writer of the preceding notice had ample opportunities of knowing the character of the deceased. —Editor, Journal.]
