DEATH OF SIR ROBERT KER PORTER.—It has been our melancholy duty to register the death of this amiable man and celebrated traveller. On Tuesday week the Doctor received a letter from his brother and sister, dated St. Petersburgh, 3rd of May, 1842, in which they signified their intention to embark in the Jupiter steamer, for England. On the following day, Wednesday, another letter arrived from St. Petersburgh, dated the 4th of May, written by the chaplain to the British embassy, from which we give an extract:—"Yesterday Sir Robert went to court to pay his respects to the Emperor, and afterwards he made two or three visits to private friends; on arriving at his house, about three o'clock in the afternoon, the servant, on opening the door of the carriage, perceived that his master was holding himself in, and that he moved to the door with much difficulty, but before he could descend the steps fell down from the effect of an apoplectic stroke, and was carried up stairs; he took a little water, soon after which consciousness ceased, and he expired at eight o'clock this morning."

The Count de Las Cases, who accompanied Napoleon to St. Helena, died at Passy on Monday week.
