In Castle Street, on Monday last, after a long and severe illness which was borne with a degree of fortitude and christian resignation rarely equalled and seldom surpassed, Mr. John KIRKBRIDE, fish-hook and tackle maker, aged 40 years. The deceased was a meritorious man in every sense of the word; his industry and perseverance were of that unconquerable nature that he almost "ceased at once to labour and to live." The offspring of his handywork may be found in the possession of almost every angler either north or south of the Tweed. In the spring of last year, though suffering much, at the time, from weakness and continued ill-health, he made his appearance before the public as the author of a neat little volume, entitled "The Northern Angler, or Fly-fisher's Companion"—a work at once replete with useful and interesting information to the sportsman, and which will, no doubt, from its own merits alone, soon become the vade mecum of every honest angler.

This venerable and highly respected female earned a livelihood, until within the last few years, by catching shell-fish amongst the rocks between that town and Parton. A few years ago, however, whilst the Countess of Lonsdale was in Whitehaven, she heard for the first time of the venerable dame, and immediately sought an interview, the result of which was a weekly allowance to the grateful and kind-hearted "old Betty," which not only rendered the toils of crab-fishing unnecessary, but made her comfortable and happy during the last few years of her earthly pilgrimage. "Old Betty" retained all her faculties in amazing perfection until the close of her protracted life.
