Births.
 
On Sunday the 2d inst., the wife of Thos. WILSON, servant in Lainshaw, was safely delivered of three fine male children, who, with the mother, are alive, and doing well. What renders the circumstance more remarkable is the fact that the prolific mother has had no children these ten years past.

DEATH OF EARL SPENCER.—We regret to hear of the death of the venerable Earl SPENCER, which took place on Monday last, the 10th inst., at a quarter before three o'clock P.M., at his country seat, Althorp Park, Northamptonshire. His Lordship had not, for a considerable period, taken an active part in politics, though deeply immersed in them during the revolutionary war. Having been First Lord of the Admiralty at the period of the most brilliant success of our navy, his name will be ever connected with our national glory. We believe that this was the most important office the Noble Earl held, and his services in that station will be long remembered by the profession. By his death Lord Althorp goes to tbe Upper House, which must cause a considerable change in the Ministerial arrangements. In every other point we presume no difficulty will be experienced in making them, but there will be a great difficulty in supplying his Lordship's place in the House of Commons. That a person of more commanding eloquence and greater readiness in debate may be found, we will concede, but it will be impossible to find any man who can, to the same degree, and most deservedly, obtain the confidence of that assembly.—Earl SPENCER was born on the 1st of September, 1758, and was, consequently, rather more than 76 years of age. His Lordship married the daughter of the first Earl of Lucan; and that lady, who died in 1831, was long distinguished in the ranks of beauty and fashion. His Lordship had several sons, one of whom, Sir R. SPENCER, a captain of the navy, died about two years ago. Two others of his sons have been known to the public, one as a gallant officer, the other on account of the change in his religion. His Lordship was a Trustee of the British Museum, a Governor of the Charter House, and an Elder Brother of the Trinity House, a Knight of the Garter, &c.
