Died.
 
At Bath, on the 30th ult., Sir J. D. A. GILPIN, late of this city, aged 89. Sir J. D. A. GILPIN, M. D., Inspector of Army Hospitals, was born in Abbey-street, Carlisle, in the year 1745. He was descended of an ancient and good family, who resided for several generations at Scaleby Castle, in this county; and which was purchased by the Rev. Dr. GILPIN, on the family having lost, during CROMWELL's usurpation, Kentmere Castle, in Westmorland, where it had been settled from the time of King John. Two of the family, William and Richard GILPIN, were Recorders of Carlisle. Sir Joseph served an apprenticeship to a surgeon at Longtown, and afterwards studied at Edinburgh. Having finished his medical studies, he settled as a private practitioner at Carlisle, where he remained only a short time. He then entered the army, and witnessed more scenes of active and dangerous service than almost any other person. He lived 26 years in the West Indies. In the island of Grenada alone he resided 18 years, and was there in 1793, when the yellow fever was very prevalent and fatal. In 1794 he was at Martinique, where they suffered dreadfully from a similar fever, and of which nearly all the medical officers died. In 1813 14 he was Inspector of Army Hospitals at Gibraltar, where a disease in every respect similar prevailed to a great extent, and proved very destructive. Dr. GILPIN was the only medical man that escaped the contagion, and, what was more extraordinary, not a member of his family, six in number, caught it. The same could not be said of any other family. He took, and also gave to his family, four or five doses of bark every day, by way of keeping up the tone of the stomach. The same plan was also adopted at Martinico, where they also escaped infection. That he fearlessly and faithfully discharged his most arduous duties on these very trying occasions, the following extract of a letter from his Excellency Lieut.-General CAMPBELL, to the Right Hon. Earl BATHURST, dated Gibralter, 25th Dec., 1813, is strong and convincing evidence:—"In having the honour to make this communication I feel it incumbent on me to notice particularly to your Lordship the great professional abilities, zeal, and attention, manifested by Dr. GILPIN, Deputy-Inspector of Hospitals, as the head of the Medical Department. The able manner in which he has conducted the arduous duties of his situation, during one of the most trying periods that could have occurred, claims my warmest approbation, and for which I trust, together with his claims for long service in the West Indies, your Lordship will have the goodness to submit the Doctor's pretensions to promotion to the favourable consideration of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent." This testimony must have been as flattering to his feelings as it was honourable to his character. It was for these services, we believe, that he afterwards received the honour of Knighthood. Sir Joseph was a very agreeable man, and possessed a great fund of anecdote. He had a fine taste for poetry, and was the author of several poems and fugitive pieces of considerable merit. The "Wall Flower," and "Scaleby Castle" deserve particular notice. He was of a mild and amiable disposition, and was much beloved and respected by all who knew him. Sir Joseph resided for many years in this city, was a senior Alderman, and several times filled the office of Chief Magistrate. To his native city he was much attached, and spent in it many of the latter years of his life.
