DEATH OF MORTON, THE DRAMATIST.—We regret to announce to our readers the decease of Mr. MORTON, the veteran dramatist, who expired after a long and painful illness on Wednesday last.


In the Rue de Tournon, France, lately, an old man who was well known in that quarter, and who has left a considerable sum of money. Nothing could equal the avarice of this man. During the late cold winter he imposed upon himself the greatest privations: he only warmed himself once a day, and that at a candle, which he lighted for a few minutes before throwing himself on a miserable bed. His food consisted of almost putrid meat, which he procured at a low price; and the only coat of which he was possessed was inherited by him from an uncle in 1796! He used to say, "What particularly distresses me is my feeble sight. When I meet any of my acquaintances I sometimes mistake them for poor men, and say to them, 'God bless you!' It is so much lost!"—Galliyani's Messenger.
