DEATH OF SIR THOMAS M. HARDY, BARONET.-At a few minutes before two o'clock, on Friday afternoon, the 20th instant, that meritorious and gallant officer, Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman HARDY, Bart., G.C.B., Governor of the Royal Hospital, Greenwich, breathed his last. Admiral HARDY succeeded the late Sir Richard Goodwin KEATS as Governor of this institution, in the month of March, 1834. On Friday se'nnight, the Admiral was seen in apparent good health, walking in the Hospital grounds. On the evening of the same day he became indisposed, and was attended by Sir Richard DOBSON, the surgeon of the Hospital, and Drs. GLADSTONE and DARVILLE; his complaint was constipation of the bowels, and he continued to get worse until Thursday afternoon, when he had an interview with Lady HARDY and his two daughters, and expressed to them, in the most firm and heroic manner, his conviction that he must die on the morrow. On Thursday night his brother, a wealthy landed proprietor in Dorsetshire, also arrived and had an interview with him, and at the time of his death, it is said that all the members of his family and his medical attendants were at his bed-side.

Previous to Admiral HARDY's appointment as Governor of the Hospital, he was one of the Lords of the Admiralty, and he was engaged in nearly all the naval engagements of Lord NELSON. At the battle of Trafalgar he was flag Captain of the Victory, and he it was who endeavoured to persuade Lord NELSON not to appear on deck in his full naval uniform; and when Lord NELSON received the fatal shot, he fell into Captain HARDY's arms; and on hearing the triumphant shout of victory, he inquired what number of the enemy had struck, and being answered, "twenty-one," he feebly ejaculated, "Kiss me, HARDY," and expired. A correct representation of this painfully interesting scene, with a faithful likeness of the devoted HARDY leaning over his lamented commander, occupies a conspicuous position in the painted hall of the Hospital.
