DEATH OF MR. BLACKBURNE, M.P.—We regret to state that on Saturday morning, John BLACKBURNE, M.P. for Huddersfield, and King's Counsel, died at his lodgings at Hampstead, after an illness of considerable length. His health has been long declining, and a general breaking up of his constitution occasioned his death. He had not reached his fiftieth year. Mr BLACKBURN has been for years, in and out of Parliament, an earnest and steady champion of the Liberal cause. He was Chairman of the Municipal Corporation Commissioners.—Mr. BLACKBURN was a member of the Northern Circuit Bar, and was well known and much admired in this city. He was an able and honest advocate,—fearless in the assertion of his opinions, and regardless of the frowns of the bench when uttering disagreeable truths.
