DEATH OF LORD LAUDERDALE.—On Friday, the 13th of September, at Dunbar, died James Earl of Lauderdale, in the 81st year of his age. Never was a warmer friend or more kind-hearted man. His long life was passed in rendering services to his friends. Was there a difference to be reconciled—a difficulty to be surmounted—a provision to be found for merit struggling with adversity—Lord Lauderdale was the person applied to, and never did any one listen with greater kindness to such applications, or use more active or successful exertions to carry into effect the wishes of his friends. As a public man he was one of the most distinguished of his day. Educated in Whig principles, by Professor MILLAR, of Glasgow, he atttached himself at an early age to the party of Mr. FOX, and soon became one of the most intimate and confidential friends. His attachment to Mr. FOX continued unabated to the death of that great statesman, whose private qualities and warm affections so much resembled his own, and for many years afterwards he was an active and zealous supporter in Parliament of the principles Mr. FOX had maintained. For the last ten years he lived in retirement, devoted to agricultural pusuits [sic].—Morning Chronicle.
