THE LATE COLONEL IRVING.— This gentleman who was a native of Glaizier, parish of Cannobie, Dumfries-shire, died in the island of Guernsey in December last, though an account of his death only reached his friends about a fortnight ago. A correspondent, who knew the deceased well, has requested us to give insertion to the following short memoir of one who, by his own merits, rose from a very humble station to a distinguished rank in a profession, where patronage is generally of more service than talent:—The deceased entered his Majesty's service in the month of July, 1795, as an ensign in the 28th regt. of foot. In little more than a month he was promoted to a Lieutenancy; and towards the close of the same year his regiment was ordered to the West Indies. The vessel in which the regiment embarked sailed under convoy of Admiral CHRISTIAN, and, the fleet being dispersed in a gale of wind, was the only one which reached its destination— St. Lucia. Soon after landing the regiment was engaged in action with the French, and at the first fire, Lieut. IRVING received a severe wound in his right arm. He soon after returned to England, and was almost immediately ordered to Gibralter, where he remained for some years, aud was present during the memorable siege. He was next engaged in the capture of Malta and Minorca; and from thence he proceeded to Egypt, under the command of Sir Ralph ABERCROMBIE, and was in the third boat which made a landing in that country. He bore a conspicuous part in the memorable action of the 8th, 13th, and 21st March, and for his gallant conduct on those occasions he was presented with a gold medal and sword by the Grand Seignor. On his return to England he was promoted to the rank of Captain, and soon afterwards embarked for the Peninsula, and was engaged in many of the principal actions. At Vittoria 23 officers in his regiment were killed and wounded, and he himself was wounded in the left arm; and at the pass of Roncesvalles, in July, 1813, with a company of 86 he withstood the attack of 3000 French troops for 3 days, when his men being reduced to 28, his Lieutenant wounded, and his ensign killed, he was obliged to surrender, and remain a prisoner of war till the peace of 1814. In 1815 he was appointed Major, and joined the army in the Netherlands; and formed part of the troops engaged with the French army at Quartre Bras on the 16th June. He had command of the regiment, and was hotly engaged with the enemy's cavalry from 2 in the afternoon till 9 in the evening, having formed the regiment into square 8 different times to resist the charges of the cavalry. Towards the close of the day, he received a musket wound in the right arm, which deprived him of its use ever after. On his recovery he went with his regiment to the Ionian Islands, where he was stationed for eight years. On his return to England, he quitted the service, and retired to Guernsey, where, as we have already stated, he died on the 14th Dec. last, leaving a widow, one daughter, and one son, an ensign in the 28th regiment, his eldest son, a captain in the same regiment, having died about 16 months before.
