DEATH OF MR. GALT.—We regret to announce the death of this distinguished individual, which took place at his residence, Greenock, early yesterday morning. It is well known that for several years past Mr. GALT's physical powers have been very much prostrated by a succession of paralytic shocks of which he has been the subject, and which prevented him from moving from one apartment to another without help, and, of course, confined him constantly to his house, except when a favourable day induced him to try a short airing in his carriage. On Tuesday fortnight he was visited by another paralytic shock—the fourteenth by which he had been assailed. This deprived him of the use of his speech for several days, although he afterwards had power to articulate broken sentences. He was, however, quite sensible, and indicated, by unequivocal signs, that he understood what was said to him. He was aware that his end was approaching, and seemed calm and resigned.—Greenock Advertiser.
