DEATH OF JOHN BOLTON, Esq.—It is our painful duty to announce the death of John BOLTON, Esq., who departed this life, at half-past five o'clock on Friday evening, in the 81st year of his age. Liverpool has lost, by the demise of Mr. BOLTON, one of its most honourable merchants and bountiful benefactors, one who was the ornament of society, a gentleman in mind and manners, who was held in the highest estimation by his friends, whom the poor blessed, and whose memory will long be cherished by all who can appreciate worth and benevolence, but most of all by those who had the honour of his acquaintance. For the fifty-three years during which Mr. BOLTON was resident in this town, not one of these years, we may venture to say, passed over his head which was not distinguished by repeated proofs of his public and private benevolence. In all his acts he was munificent and charitable, upright, generous, and humane. The wealth with which Providence blessed him was always considered by him as a trust more for the benefit of others than of himself, and he never forgot the Christian duty freely to give, as he had freely received. Mr. BOLTON was a native of Ulverston, in this county. He entered early in life into commercial pursuits, resided for some time in the West Indies, and finally settled in Liverpool, where he acquired an almost princely fortune. In 1803, when England was menaced with foreign invasion, Mr. BOLTON raised and clothed a corps in Liverpool at his own expense, which consisted of ten companies and 600 men. He lived to see his country successful by sea and land, and those principles which he revered triumphant.—Liverpool Mail. The remains of this deeply-lamented gentleman are to be interred in Bowness Church, Westmorland. They are to be removed from his town residence, in Duke-street, on Monday morning next, at nine o'clock, and will proceed to Preston. On Tuesday the journey will be continued to Lancaster, and on Wednesday to Storrs, on the banks of Windermere, the seat of the deceased. On Thursday the remains will be consigned to the tomb.
SUDDEN DEATH OF MISS MACAULEY.—This awful event took place suddenly on the 22nd ult. She, on that day, appeared to be in more than usual health and spirits, till about nine o'clock in the evening, when she was attacked with apoplexy, and notwithstanding the prompt assistance and unceasing exertions of her medical friends, she continued in a state of insensibility till about twelve o'clock, when her eventful life terminated. Miss M. some years go was popular a actress in Carlisle.
