DEATH OF THE EARL OF SHANNON.—We regret to announce tne death of this venerable Earl, which took place at his house in Connaught-terrace, on Thursday evening week, after a lengthened and severe indisposition. The noble Earl was in his 71st year; and married, in 1798, Sarah, daughter of John HYDE, Esq., by whom he has left a large family. He is succeeded in his title and estates by Viscount BOYLE, who was born in May, 1809; and married, in 1832, Emily, youngest daughter of Lord George SEYMOUR, of the Hertford family. His eldest son, now Lord BOYLE, is in his 9th year, and he has other children. The late Earl was Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of the county of Cork, an Earl, Viscount, and Baron in the Irish peerage, and Baron Carleton, county of York, in that of Great Britain.

We had last week to announce the death of Sir Lionel SMITH, governor of the Mauritius, and it is our painful duty to add, that on the 16th, three days after the death of her husband, Lady SMITH also died. Her delicate state of health, it appears, had, ever since her residence in the island, precluded her from mixing in company.

Marshal MONCEY, the Governor of the Paris Invalides, expired on Wednesday night.

A few days ago there died in service, as a cook, in the Rue de Bondy, a female who was grand niece of CORNEILLE, and niece of FONTENELLE. Her uncle, FONTENELLE, who lived to the age of 99, was rich, but, instead of leaving his fortune to his relatives, he bequeathed it to two females and to servants, who had, in his extreme old age, induced him to make a will in their favour.
